I remember Dan Tweeting something a couple of weeks back telling us to expect some Captain America news here in 2021. Whether or not that's counting something that's totally slipped my mind or the What If figures, I have no idea, but it'd be cool to see some kind of Classic Cap wave sneak in.

Serpent Society yes please x 100.

IF they were to ever do D-Man I think this look would suit him well. Differentiates him enough from the yellow Daredevil/Wolverine knockoff suit, and I think he looks cool in lace-up boots, fingerless gloves and a beard. I'd love to get him.

If we're getting a cap wave I hope it's not 5 different versions of cap and 2 villain's/supporting characters.

I think an ideal cap wave should look something like this:

Classic cap - traditional cap comic colors on the 80th body
US Agent
Classic falcon with redwing
America chavez
Classic zemo
Sin
Diamondback

Agreed on both counts.

I wouldn’t think it would be a wave unless it's late for the anniversary and next year and has nothing to do with this apparent "year of the shield" tie in. As an entire wave exclusive would be something legends havent seen since the toys r us Jubilee and online only release of the Puck wave

Interesting coincidence perhaps?
The Marvel Legends Game Stop cards that will be offered with various waves -
Pictured on the foil packaging: Baron Zemo for the current Bring on the Bad Guys wave (listed as Wave 2), Doctor Doom (probably for the upcoming FF retro wave), Jean Grey (probably with the next X-wave), and...
Captain America
Maybe a hint that there will be a Cap wave next year, accompanied by the Game Stop cards?

If Hasbro were to make Armadillo, Slapstick, and Dr. Bong...who would be the next ridiculous obscure character we obsess over and will into existence? My vote is for the Hypno-Hustler. Or Ruby Thursday. Or Captain Ultra. Maybe Kangaroo?
Melf
If there was a Melf for the Defenders shelf I would think I had died and gone to nerd heaven. Alternate Relf head please!

Those cards are referencing past and present. Doom and jean aren't referencing future releases.

I love the 80th Cap mold and it’s a shame the only way they’ve used it was to get the upper legs/arms for Venomized Cap.

Sure would be nice to get him in some lighter shades of blue and with some improved headsculpts. The ones he came with skewed too realistic and too cartoonish for me.

And we badly need a new U.S. Agent.

Let’s hope the BAF will be one of the five Sleeper robot agents! Hahaha.

Great thread!

I think we can almost guarantee the 80th Cap will be in a lighter blue for the ML 20th anniversary wave that is inevitable (alongside Iron Man, Hulk, and a brand new Toad).

I’d like to see:

80th Captain America in lighter blue
Serpent Society! Death Adder, Sidewinder, Anaconda, Diamondback, Rattler
US Agent

Armadillo? Sure, why not.
