But all that other stuff was from the 70s and 80s...
Didn't the Outback Era run into the 90's?

No, the Outback Era ended in 1989.

I didn't realize the Outback team only lasted a year.

I'd love to see X-Men related villain teams done like;

-The Marauders (Though I think Sabretooth, Greycrow/Scalphunter & Malice [Polaris] could be released as solo figures & there's 10 members in the team, not counting Sinister)
-The Reavers (They just need to work on the remaining members)
-Mystique's Brotherhood/Freedom Force

Other teams Hasbro could do could be;
-Imperial Guard (Maybe a 'Family Feud' with Lilandra, Deathbird & D'Ken to start it off)
-Starjammers
-X-Men Outback team (Wolverine & Dazzler have been done, just need the rest of the team)
Yes please to all this.
Yup, After AoA wave 2 I could use another break from the 90s and a few assortments or sets of the aforementioned would be awesome!

Uncanny was published every 2 weeks then so it seemed to last longer than it actually did.

What if … “Excalibur” is the theme for the next set of Walgreens exclusives?

I rewatched the video where they showed Excalibur. They did mention that it’ll be released this year. That’ll rule out Walgreens at least!

I'm thinking this gets revealed as either a pulse or Amazon exclusive when the euro cons come around.

I'm wondering if this could be a Target release like last year's Rogue, Gambit, and the two Spideys on the retro cards. Captain Britain could be a repaint, Nightcrawler a re-release, Megan and Kitty don't need too much new, maybe just some overlays for Kitty. Rachel needs the most new parts I would guess.

Kitty at the very least would need a new head, torso and arms.

I hope not! Also, Excalibur wasn't part of the Toy Biz '90s figures. I believe only Nightcrawler and Kylun (?!!) got carded figures and Shadowcat got a mail-away "ToyFare" figure.

Wasn't a figure revealed with some puffy arms recently? (At least the forearms). New head for sure, but wondering if the torso part could be an overlay piece, which actually would provide the right look for her shirt.

That Target did a second run of last year's figures for this summer makes me think it was fairly successful for them. And they teased the prior series with the Rogue glove far in advance.

I doubt they will stand on ceremony and not place a figure on those retro cards that wasn't on them before.
