1) Toad (he is waaaaayy overdue for a true Legends figure)

2). Death’s Head, Freelance Peacekeeping Agent

3) Count Nefaria

4). Graviton

5). The (real) Marauders (okay, this is a bit of cheat, but aside from a classic Sabertooth, this team hasn’t been touched on yet. (Of course, that’s true of the Dark Riders, the Acolytes, the MLF too)

6). The Sphinx

7). Maelstrom

8). The Fly (you heard me. All the parts are there, save for a new head)

9). Dr Demonicus

10) the Night Shift (again a bit of a cheat, but I’d love to see this team done.)

Mandarin is the biggest gap left, IMO.

But I’ve been loving this year. Great to see all those names collected together. And we’re only half way through the year!

Mandarin is a glaring omission at this point
.
Otherwise I could do with some bulking out of the villain ranks of Hulk, Thor and the Fantastic Four. X-Men and Spidey have obviously done very well the past few years.

A U-Foes box set would be a huge step towards more Hulk foes. Similarly a Frightful Four set (various permutations offer lots of new characters, but Wizard and Trapster certainly).

Plus also Dragon Man, Mangog, Ravage, Madman, Mad Thinker, Red Ghost (with apes), Executioner, Ringmaster…

That’ll do to start with.

5.Classic Typhoid Mary
6.The Brood

@Beamish - We may or may not get a new comic book Doctor Octopus figure at some point this year, unless the "Marvel MVL Legends Octopus" listing found on Amazon Mexico turns out to be an 'Into The Spider-Verse' movie figure of Doc Ock. I'd still love a "Death of Captain Stacy" green-and-orange suit and glasses Doctor Octopus with bendable wire tentacles, or even a white Armani suit Doc Ock for when he led the Sinister Six in the 1990s.

I love all of the lists so far. For 2022, these are the Top 10 villains I'd love to see Hasbro make all-new action figures of next year, in no particular order:

01.) Mole Man [classic]
02.) Gargoyle [classic]
03.) Ringmaster [classic Maynard Tioboldt]
04.) The Leader [orange-and-black suit with the "Jiffy Pop" giant brain head sculpt]
05.) The Burglar [from "Amazing Fantasy" #15]
06.) Shriek [classic]
07.) Loki [green-and-yellow costume with cape]
08.) Magneto [classic red-and-purple costume with new head sculpts]
09.) Mystique [classic]
10.) Sabretooth [classic orange costume]

I know that classic Magneto isn't high on most folks' want lists, but I missed out on the previous figures and would love to find him. I would have mentioned more Spider-Man villains such as the Chameleon [smoking jacket], the Lizard [classic, with a removable bendable wire tail and alternate accessories of the head, left hand and feet of Dr. Curt Connors], the Rhino [classic John Romita Sr.], the Shocker [classic, with raised texture on the yellow padded areas of his costume], and the Hobgoblin [classic, with his Goblin glider, accessories of a pumpkin bomb and razor bats, and alternate heads of Jason Macendale and Roderick Kingsley], but those villains may or may not already be in the works for future Retro Spider-Man releases. A two-pack of the Puppet Master with Alicia Masters would be awesome, too. We definitely need more Fantastic Four villains like the Wizard, the Trapster, green armored suit Sandman, Annihilus and Psycho-Man. The Incredible Hulk is another hero who needs a new Marvel Legends wave and more villains made, like a boxed set of the U-Foes.

Since Ant-Man, the Hulk, Spider-Man and Thor all celebrate their 60th anniversaries next year, I'm hopeful we'll see more Marvel Legends figures of those characters, their supporting cast, their heroic allies and their rogues gallery of villains.

    Mojo would be cool, but we also need a new Longshot to go against him. They could actually go deep into the Mojo-verse, Mojo II, Spiral, X-Babies...

    They could finish up the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, and even re-release some of the older figures like the Blob. But we need Toad, Avalanche, Destiny, Quicksilver in green from the old school Brotherhood, Phantazia from the '90s Brootherhood

    I'd love a new Jim Lee Sabretooth that's bigger than the last one. Doesn't need to be Monster Venom big, but could use a bigger body than what we got in the Apocalypse wave.

    But all I really want is Stryfe. I would prefer a new figure. But if they just re-release the old Toys R Us exclusive version, I'd be fine with that too. But I feel like I need him in my collection. Most of my collection is '90s X-Men. And on top of that, I'm currently re-reading all of the '90s X-Books right now, and Stryfe is just as important to that era as Magneto or Apocalypse or Mr. Sinister or any other villain. Not having him feels like there's a huge hole in my collection. I'm THIS close to just overpaying for him. But I just know as soon as I do, they'll announce a new one.

    The only non-X-Men villain I really want is a new Venom. The old one is fine, but after seeing the upgrade they made to the Carnage, the Venom really looks outdated. Monster Venom's too big, but a repaint of the movie Venom figure to his McFarlane era comic look would be appreciated.
