Honestly, if a classic High Evolutionary and a classic Psycho Man are in this wave, it would be a huge win in my book regardless of who else fills out the wave.

Guys don’t tell anyone but the P in fact stands for Paste Pot Pete. Everyone’s favorite classic Fantastic Four villain.
I in fact love Paste Pot Pete but I do have a custom and a Psycho Man custom would be quite challenging. The argument that Hasbro wont do High Evolutionary AND Psycho Man in a single wave is that's alot of new pieces.
High Evolutionary will be in his Spider-Man Unlimited animated series costume/look. :wink: :P :lol:

I just googled it and threw up in my mouth a little. Why is he wearing a spiked whale tongue?

However, the fantastic four themselves dont have much new tooling at all, so id imagine we are safe

I have no clue. It annoyed and confused me, back then. And does so, even now.

That was my first exposure to the character and what my mind initially thinks he looks like when he gets brought up.

I have to remind myself that he looks very different in the comics.

Side note, Spidey Unlimited would be a fun Spidey variant

Just looked up images of the High Evolutionary design from the Spider-Man Unlimited animated series. I don't think it's the worst thing. I think some of it does fit the look & feel of the Knights of Wundagore. The traditional design stands apart and doesn't quite mesh with the Knights as well. That said, I think there's something really cool and almost simple about the comic design which I like and appreciate.

If we get High Evolutionary in the FF wave, hopefully we can get a figure of Man Beast in one of the cosmic waves. Man Beast is the only one of the New Men I really want. Base him on the magnificent portrayal by Gil Kane, not the weird looking Hate Monger.

IF we are getting High Evolutionary and Psycho-Man - and Stark Resilient has shown that he’s got some inside scoop so I’m willing to believe it - that is amazing news. Two brand new characters with very unique designs, and I’m glad they’re both on regular cards and they didn’t try to make either one big since they both occasionally change shape. Super excited to see these guys.

Psycho man would indeed rule. I wouldn't be upset if it was paibok either.

Would you say a Psycho-Man would be bonkers?
