Question about Sabretooth--is that collar around his neck glued into the hole on his back for you guys? Mine came out, and I didn't notice whether it was glued or not before it detached.
Just pegged in

So I've seen the question pop up a couple times, but I don't think I've ever seen the response: Is there a running change for AoA Rogue? What's the difference?

In my mind, AOA Rogue has a cape. Any cape suggestions for her?

Maybe the green cape from Polaris (Warlock wave)?

Closing out the Age of Apocalypse

Wed Dec 15, 2021 2:05 am

I saw maybe 15 AoA Rogues at one Target. Kind of weird.

Anyway, I managed to complete this wave. I like it even more than wave one!

Iceman— I already mentioned how I got him early. I bought a few of him to army build, although sadly not as many as slugzilla! Hah! AoA Iceman has one of my all-time favorite character designs for any X-Men character. I just love this look! I really like the faceplate look he has and the spiked head, and spiky claws.

Magneto— This is one of my favorite looks for Magneto. I love the shape of the helmet. Wish he also got a fully shadowed helmet. I sometimes swap on the Onslaught head, but I like that head more on classic Magneto for some reason.

Cyclops— Always loved this look for Cyke. I really like the golden armor and new arms. Very happy to get his guy to square off with Weapon X.

Legion— On paper, I wouldn’t be a fan of this character design, but the smirky crazed head sculpt, shading on the clothes, and muscular sculpt combine to make this figure a surprisingly fun action figure in person. Happy to get him!

Shadowcat— I never knew about this character design for her, but I like the costume. She’s a fun figure. Nice poseability.

Rogue— I’m not as enamored with the costume for this Rogue, but she’s a good figure.

Sabretooth— Nice use of the Colossus body. Sabretooth is big and nicely poseable. I really like the snarling head sculpt. I feel like he should have some clawed hands, too.

BAF Colossus: Awesome BAF! I love the metallic silver and the dynamic articulation that he has considering he’s a big armored figure. I took off the yellow suspenders—they kept popping off. I like the way the figure looks without them. I also took off the shoulder pad. I wonder if any of his parts could be reused for more armored characters?


Hope Hasbro makes Holocaust/Nemesis next! I need another villain for these characters!

I'm pretty happy with this lineup, I'd take more for sure, another wave to get holocaust but I'd be fine with what I have

There is absolutely enough characters to fill out a 3rd wave. Minimum I would want Gambit, Mr Sinister and Storm.

And somewhere there toss in a proper head and harness for AOA Blink.

I’m still going to champion Abyss and Mikhail Rasputin. Mikhail is definitely a throwaway character IMO, but Abyss is a very cool design. And since I’d consider Sinister and Holocaust as essential, so when you’re halfway through the horsemen plus a great design in Abyss, might as well go all in. Feel AoA is our only shot to get four characters that were horsemen at the same time.

I'll echo this, if for no other reason than this is actually at least *a* design for Mikhail. It's not mind-blowing or anything, but it's at least visually more interesting than a black spandex onesie with a towel around his shoulders.

But also, as is well established, I don't even need to justify a single AoA character. There ain't a single one I'd turn down anyway.

Well; looking at AoA again, we have enough characters for 2 waves, easily and popular characters at that.

Wave 3

Nightcrawler
Mystique
Mr. Sinister
Havok
Gambit
Jubilee
Dead Man Wade

BAF - Abyss

Wave 4

Blink
Storm
Silver Samurai
Bishop
Angel
Quicksilver
Banshee

BAF - Mikhail Rasputin

Deluxe - Nemesis (Holocaust)

I think that would round out AoA pretty well.

If you sprinkle in some tertiary characters you could extend to more waves. Drawing upon the likes of:
Thunderbird
Forge
Murdock
Bullseye
Madri
Wolverine (the other one)
Scarlet Witch
Lila Cheney
Amazon (BAF)
Cannonball
Donald Pierce
Greydon Creed
Iron Ghost (would be a fun design)
Omega Red
Sunspot
Strong Guy (BAF)
Blob
Orange Hulk (BAF)
Fiend
Prophet

I guess I could go on, but Hasbro could really milk this line for several waves.
