Fri Jul 30, 2021 3:00 pm

I’d be a little all over the place:

Guardian 3000 character (let’s say Starhawk)
Infinity Watch (Drax)
Something Bronze Age (Adam Warlock, Starfox, Jack of Hearts)
Multi-title villain (Deathbird or classic Ronan)
X-Men-specific villain (D’Ken or Vulcan)
Thor or Planet Hulk character (BRB or Miek)
Inhuman (Karnak or Triton, whoever requires less tooling)

BAF: so many options. Ch’od for X-Men, Korg or Red King for Planet Hulk, Charlie-27 for Guardians 3000

I mean I’m just sayin’ but I would swim across oceans for a Silver Surfer based on the art of Tom Grindberg. He was always one of my favorite artists as a kid.

Pretty much any characters from The Imperial Guard, the Classic Guardians of the Galaxy, and the Heralds of Galactus. Also, Starfox, Moondragon (in classic green outfit), and classic Starlin Adam Warlock.

I wouldn't mind that, honestly! I wish Legends would go full force on specific artists' interpretations of characters. (Gimme that John Buscema Nebula, Hasbro!) Plus keeping mainstays in rotation is a big bonus. Just... maybe not by making it a pack-in with a $400 figure.

I'd love;

+ Moodragon
+ Classic Adam Warlock
+ Phyla Vell
+ Annihilus
+ rest of the Guardians 3000
+ updated`modern` Guardians of the Galaxy set (Marvel Now era would be cool)
+ Black Order

I fear most of that is the stuff of dreams, but would be awesome to see them at some point.

Yeah I wish that Hasbro would dip their toes into more artist specific figs but that always seems to be an unknown quantity with them. The 80th anniversary Alex Ross esque was a good start. I just wish they took it once step further.

I do hope we see a silver surfer like this one day. What’s great about this design is that Grindberg not only made surfer look less humanoid and more alien looking, but the colorist he was paired with gave Surfer this it iridescent silver that looked like it was mixed with pearl white and just a trace of slate blue. It was so eye catching on the page.

The Walgreens surfer looked a lot like Ron Lim’s art, same with the deluxe Thanos. Kirby’s original surfer had a shorter head.

It would be fun to get figures that look like the Mike Allred and Moebius versions, but I don’t mind the Walgreens one. Lim’s art fits well with the current ML style

Comic Black Order would be a lot of fun.

I will happily take any and all character representations from the Annihilation series. Still the ultimate cosmic series imo.

First appearance Star Lord is a long desired figure for me.

Bug from the Micronauts and later Guardians is my most wanted Cosmic. Mainly for the Micronauts connection, which is my all-time favorite toy line and also one of my favorite comics, especially the first 30 or so issues.
