2021 Pulsecon Hopes & Predictions

Mon Oct 18, 2021 4:52 pm

With Pulsecon just a few days away, let’s discuss our hopes and predictions. I’m a comic-focused collector so I’ll limit my discussion to those and all you MCU collectors can pick up my slack!

Haslab

Hope they mention the knee issue with some apology and proposed fix.
Predict they’ll ignore the knee issue and say their logistics are still focused on getting all of them out to people for now and will continue looking into complaints.

Hope and predict Galactus updates to include mention of looking at “what they got right and wrong with sentinel” and addressing with factory for galactus.

Predict mention they’re currently working on prototypes for next marvel haslab but want to get closer into production of galactus before making announcements.

Hope and predict they mention play sets / buildings as options on the table. Predict fans will expect and want Daily Bugle but Hasbro will do FF tower to align with MCU movie. Hope and predict the future stretch goals allow you to change it from a Daily Bugle into a FF tower by swapping a few parts.

X-Men

Hope and predict they announce a full wave of retro carded to include a classic Sabertooth on an Omega Red buck.
Hope and predict retro carded Toad.
Hope none of these are Target exclusives.
Predict 1/4 of them will be Target exclusives.
Hope and predict fan channel deluxe bonebreaker.
Hope for tease of future reaver.

Spider-Man Figures

Hope and predict Rhino deluxe figure for $32.99
Hope for deluxe Lizard figure for $32.99

Avengers Figures

Predict anniversary Thor figure, similar to captain America, as a repaint of 80th with more accessories.
Predict tease for anniversary Iron Man figure, repaint of 80th,
Hope for fan channel exclusive retro carded She-Hulk in classic colors.

Fantastic Four

Hope and predict for a deluxe size villain. Hope it’s classic looks but predict it’s a weird mix of classic and modern mixed and will be disappointing.

Cosmic Figures

Predict apologies on walgreen exclusive delays. Hope they open them up to order on Hasbro Pulse but predict if they do, will be limited to pulse premium members for first day and will sell out limited stock in minutes, even for premium members.

Predict up close look at Binary.

Predict a full wave or a tease for a full wave of cosmic figures, with BAF unannounced.
Hope and predict one figure shown is classic Adam Warlock.

It would be cool to see some sort of No Way Home extra stuff - but I don't know if anything will be official by then so... doubtful.

There are no trailers for the new movies coming next year so I wouldn't expect anything from them. Maybe some D+ stuff for MCU?

Could be a good show for the comics-only crew.

Yeah, the only NWH figure I could see maybe being shown is Doc Ock since he was in the trailer, but I don't expect him at all.

And all the movies after NWH just got pushed back more so it will be even longer before trailers/figure reveals. I wonder if Hasbro may have originally been planning to show a MOM figure or two but definitely won't now. And I agree, D+ seems like the most likely if they show any MCU stuff. Maybe Clint and Kate.

I dont think there is any MCU stuff they could really offer us unless we were getting a random Exclusive or something from an older film. I don't expect anything from NWH or future movies, etc. Outside chance maybe a Carnage movie figure? But that would be it if anything. I expect an all comic and such presentation

At this point they may need to show the whole 20th ML Anniversary wave otherwise the show will be pretty sparse.

I'm predicting we will see the ML 20th Anniversary stuff.

Might see a hint of Raimi anniversary figures as well.

hoping to see -

- X-Men TAS Boxed Set with updated figures or single retro cards for Cyclops, Jean, Jubilee, Morph and Beast
- retro card White Queen (from last years boxed set) and Dark Phoenix (TRU set)
- MCU Sharon Carter

My Hopes include:
1) More single-carded retro Spider-Man villains. I'd be happy with any of: Jack O' Lantern, Tarantula, Classic Chameleon, Classic Lizard, Classic Kraven repaint, Swarm, Man-Wolf.
2) My perennial long-shot hopes: Zaran, Dracula, Gladiator (Potter), Dreadnought, Baron Blood, Shuma Gorath
3) Will we finally see Attuma? Maybe a new truly classic Annihilus on a retro FF card?

My only major hopes are more X-Men (which seems like a given) and an announcement of a retail release of a Venom on that larger buck used for the Con exclusive but without the animated cel shaded paint job and a more comic style head.

Hope to see 1st appearance Blue Marvel, ROM the Spaceknight, Iron Man retro carded figures, more New Warriors beyond Speedball and more Guardians of the Galaxy (the Vance Astrovik team). I predict non-1st appearance Blue Marvel with the jacket, no ROM, Speedball but no one else from the New Warriors, no mention of the Vance Guardians but still some cool 90's characters I won't mind collecting. I also predict an accurate classic Iron Man in the yellow and red colors seeing as how close that Shang Chi wave Iron Man was so close.
