Someone should make an interactive yes/no/maybe sheet for this list.

The Lava Men would be a cool army builder for the Avengers to fight! I'm in!

Dr. Spectrum? Yes please! I did a dumb a few years ago and tried making a custom Luke Cage out of, you guessed it, Hyperion. Now, I have no Hyperion and I'm unwilling to pay the money for him on the secondary market. I'd take Dr. Spectrum immediately.

Oh yeah, especially if they gave him rainbow blast effects.

Definitely in for Dr. Spectrum. He's usually in my Top 10 votes, to represent the Squadrom Supreme/Sinister.
And that's the version I want: classic, colorful, full head mask. Sooooooo easy to make.
Image
I'm OK with it if they want to bulk him up into this, admittedly, more visually interesting version.
Image
I would be fine with a female version. I like that last image that Beamish posted. But I don't have any experience with that iteration of the character.
The modern one with the green costume and no mask is my least favorite. The story was great, but I like the older versions for my ML shelf.
They should really re-release Hyperion, too, on an updated body.

In 8 years, we've only gotten Hyperion from the Squadron Supreme. Dr. Spectrum would be an awesome character to finally get, provided he's that classic look, of course. He'd be an easy repaint, and a good Avengers and Iron Man enemy, too.

OK.... catching up on these...

Day 13 - Exodus. Absolutely a must have for my collection. The X-Men display won't be complete without him. I'm assuming eventually we'll get Legends of most of the characters that came out on the old Toy Biz X-Men cards, so Exodus will eventually show up .... or maybe not Senyaka, Tusk, Quark... maybe we're better off not getting all of those guys. But Exodus I need.

Day 14 - Lava Men... I can't believe there's actually a selection I'm saying no to, but man that would be a waste. generic army builders, extremely minor... I have literally never seen anyone mention these guys in any discussion of potential figures. There are SO many army builders I'd want to see ahead of these jamokes... moloids, Shi'ar, Badoon, mindless ones,... It's a no from me, dawg.

Day 15 - Dr. Spectrum - now we're back on track. I love the Squadron Supreme (and the Squadron Sinister, too) and this Green Lantern analog has a great look and would make an awesome figure. I would really love to have this guy to display with Nighthawk and Hyperion... and Power Princess - we need her too.

Heck yes to various Doctors Spectrum! Specifically, the Squadron Supreme maxi (Earth-712), Supreme Power, and New Avengers / Secret Wars versions. Our Hyperion figures have gotten mighty lonely, with Hasbro having mostly* neglected the various Squads since. If getting a core group of Squadron Supremers is a dream, then getting the Supreme Powers guys is a pipe dream. And if Hasbro can only get me as far as these four, I'll take it.

*Technically, we've gotten 3 more SS members since then, but 2 of 'em (Nighthawk & Speed Demon) are non-SS versions, and the third (Thundra) is one most fwooshers probably didn't know ever joined the team.

Yes to Dr. Spectrum! First version with the hood would be both easy and pop on a shelf.

I only read the Supreme Power book that came out about 15 years ago, so that’s the version I’d be most interested in, but Dr Spectrum is the character from that series that I’d be least interested in as a figure. I would definitely buy Hyperion, Zarda , and Nighthawk.

Absolutely need classic masked Dr. Spectrum! Colorful energy effect pieces would be ideal.
