The figures from the Age of Apocalypse on my wish list are as follows:

Abyss
Mikhail Rasputin
Holocauset/Nemesis (Update)

And just to complete the AOA Horsemen roster, I threw in AOA Mr. Sinister.

Any thoughts on how well the Deluxe Lightning Collection Blue Ranger power effects would work for AOA Iceman? I know there's those jagged ice pieces you can get from Ebay (the name escapes me at the moment), but I was thinking finding the upcoming Blue Ranger cheap might provide some decent effects.

Hopefully some folks included AOA versions of their favorite characters on their Top 10 lists!

Storm and Quicksilver are really the only two left I'd like tbh, unless Nightcrawler is the Uncanny X-Force version.

Really need Holocaust/Nemesis. One of the best character designs ever!

Oh Yeah, AOA Holocaust/Nemesis is in need of an updated figure.

AoA Nightcrawler and a new Holocaust are my biggest AoA wants. I actually sold the old BAF a while back in anticipation that they’d be remaking him - hoping that wasn’t a miscalculation!

When it comes to Age of Apocalypse Marvel Legends, they're only three that top my wish list.

1. Abyss
2. Mikhail Rasputin
3. Holocaust/Nemesis

Was looking at possible reuse that could be rolled into the remaining AOA characters and Spiderman's Sleepwalker seems to have a similar outfit to what Bishop wore in AOA. I know that figure was supposed to be lanky but didn't end up reflecting the comics as accurately. I have to wonder if some of that figure's design will be used for Bishop if they decide to give him to us.

And, yes, I did have a fair amount of AOA in my Top 10, including Holocaust / Nemesis. Though I noticed a few people who just called him Nemesis, which makes me wonder if that'll short him some points on the overall list. Still, looks like he's one of the desirable BAF runners though.

How do people envision Abyss' AoA design be made in action figure form? He's a head on top of unraveling strands.

I don't think that design can BE an action figure without having transparent normal action figure underneath, with the strands either sculpted or, more likely, painted right onto the figure, allowing space between the strands for the transparency to show through. If they just sculpted strands as an empty casing of a human form, I think articulation would be entirely sacrificed. Based on budget alone, I don't think the latter is a possibility, but I don't think the former idea will please collectors or fans of this character.

There are still an F-ton of AOA designs that could be made, so I think in terms of the BAFs that might anchor the final waves:

"Nemesis"/Holocaust is clearly the glaring omission
I guess Mikhail could also be a BAF

Those two as BAFs would leave room for 14 AOA singles. That's a lot!

Storm
Nightcrawler
Angel
Gambit
Bishop
Sinister
Havok
Quicksilver
Banshee
Abyss
Mystique
Jubilee
Infinite
Dazzler

I might be in the minority here but I’d love to get AoA Mondo. He had a great look in the comics that was carried over into his 90s toybiz 5” figure.
I feel like getting the Gen Next kids would be pretty cool and go along nicely with Shadowcat and Colossus. I doubt we’ll get them, but they’d look cool.

Yeah, I liked the Gen Next designs also. I'd buy them as well. Don't forget Vincente! :)
