Yes I want an MCU Ancient One like immediately, she's one of the biggest holes in my MCU collection.

I'd love for her to be in a two-pack with Kaecilius, she'd need her fans and an alternate dark dimension head.

I'd take a MCU Ancient One. Kaecillius was kind of forgettable to me as a villain, I'd be more interested in Rachel McAdam's character from the movie. But I've been trying not to discuss other related characters in this thread, just sticking to the ones suggested. So yes, MCU Ancient One would be a nice addition.

Nitro would be cool too. Not much claim to fame for me aside from being the catalyst for the superhero Civil War. Again, not trying to discuss other characters, but pairing him with Speedball/Penance would be even cooler.

Definitely would take Nitro in that outfit - nice easy pick for Hasbro and would pop on my shelf.

I’d like a comic Ancient One, but no way does he get made before Tilda, (nor does he deserve to, really). She definitely feels like a significant gap for MCU buyers.

Late to yesterday's Ancient One discussion.
He'd be cool as a translucent figure, sort of like a force spirit, but not just one color.

Nitro for sure should get a figure yesterday.
Easy to make - repaint a base body and add a head sculpt.
New villain - always in for new characters, and an increase in my on shelf bad guy population.
Important character - caused Mar-vell's cancer and started Civil War

Yes please to Nitro! He's a big want, involved in some key Marvel moments and with a killer unique color scheme - I'm always trying to get more purple on the shelf.

Sure I'll take Nitro - he seems like one of those easy wave-fillers that can be added to a wave to save on budget with minimal new tooling required.

For some reason I get Nitro mixed up with Tower from the Alliance of Evil.

Nitro is an absolute must have! He’s fought everybody, and he’s been key to some huge stories.

I would love a Nitro figure. He's fought everyone from Spider-Man to Captain Mar-Vell and helped kill the latter. I'd say he's a sorely missing villain.

Yeah, Nitro is a character that gets forgotten about but is responsible for both the death of Captain Marvel and Civil War. I'd absolutely love to get him for my shelf.

When I found this issue with its awesome Frank Miller cover in a back-issue bin, it became one of the earliest floppies I ever bought. It gave me an outsized idea of how big a Spider-Man villain Nitro was; I knew he wasn't anywhere near the level of a Sandman or an Electro, but this did put him up there with, say, Will-o'-the-Wisp in my kid brain.

He looks like the type of scumbag who gets in fist fights with his adult step-son and fires his unlicensed handgun at empty beer bottles at 3 AM until the neighbors call the cops on him, and his super power is that he explodes. In other words, of course we need a Nitro figure!

Yes, yes, a hundred times yes. Nitro is so needed. Ideally I'd like him in a two pack with a good Mar-Vell figure. Sculpted gem and cuffs are a MUST to get him right.

Do Nitro's powers increase exponentially based upon how many days in a row he ate at Taco Bell?
