Closing out the Age of Apocalypse

Sat Jul 25, 2020 1:46 am

After getting my AOA wave in this week I went back and re-read the series again. And I always forget how GOOD it is. I know it has been re-visited and returned too, but for me the original mini series('s) that made the event were basically a perfect self-contained story.
Now, I'm sure a lot of the more hardcore X fans would take most of the AOA characters in figure form, but that seems a bit unrealistic, so I figure let's limit it Limitations mean choice, and thats always more fun.

SO, to close out the series in Legends let's pretend we are getting:
One wave (7 figures and a BAF)
One Exclusive figure (like Apocalypse is)
One 2 pack.

Thats your limitation. SHow me what you got!

My choices are:
Magneto and Bishop 2 pack - Magneto with an Alternate unmasked head.

Iceman as the exclusive, with just ALOT Of extra Ice stuff. Giant hands and a long Ice trail and all sorts of rad stuff. Go nuts!

AOA Wave 2:
- Sabertooth - An easy choice. I mean we have Wildchild and his chain, we need Creed
- Cyclops - Finishing out the Logan/Jean/Scott triangle. In a perfect world we'd also do Havok, but I think we don't have the spots.
- Nightcrawler - The star of X-Caliber, and one of the characters to have a life after the series.
- Gambit - As well as his own book, Gambit was just in a lot of the other series in Flashbacks and the like.
- Rogue - In a perfect world, with a Matthew pack in, but I suspect that wouldnt cost out.
- Jubilee - As much a part of Xternals as Gambit was, Jubes was a great character with a cool look in AOA.
- Quicksilver - Sucha huge part of the AOA stories, and with a cool look too.
BAF - Colossus - Pumped up and badass looking, Colossus would be an awesome BAF to finish the line.

So thats my picks!

I'll dwell a bit on the rest, but Holocaust has to be the BaF for a second wave. He's way, way too vital to the MU to be left out of this.

You know, I thought about that, but I wonder if you could get away with him in a non-AOA wave? I mean he was in the main MU for ages too...

1) Cyclops
2) Iceman
3) Rogue
4) Sabretooth w/ pack in AOA Blink head
5) Gambit
6) Nightcrawler
7) Magneto

BAF - Colossus, Holocaust is large enough in the story and size-wise to warrant a deluxe figure unto himself.

Ideally I'd stick Magneto or Sabretooth in a deluxe 2pk w/ Holocause similar to the 616 Colossus/Juggernaut, so we can have a never-before-done AOA figure like Quicksilver, Storm, Banshee, Angel, Havok, Jubilee or the Madri, but the limit was 7 figures for the wave, and these seem the more important ones.

I would want Holocaust as a deluxe figure. They can retool the existing BAF. I would rather get Abyss as a BAF than Colossus myself. I want the horseman!

Iceman
Holocaust

Two of the best character designs in comics. They would be amazing figures if made at Hasbro’s current high standards.

Dude, I would LOVE an Abyss, but I have no idea how you would do it as a figure.

Mr.Sinister
I REALLY wanted to put Sinister in my list, but I felt like we needed SOME female characters in there.

If they're gonna do a Deluxe Colossus they might as well stick in a Shadowcat and kid Illyana while they're at it. She was a kid enough of the time in 616 to warrant reuse later.
