Given the limited reveals at today's panels I'd say lowered expectations are called for indeed.

....but those weren't the Marvel teams. ML has been pretty consistent throughout the year so I expect it to keep going. I mean, most of the stuff they've revealed is already showing up in various retail outlets so there's plenty to show for what's to come early next year.

The ML output - on an annual basis - far outpaces SW, Transformers , or Power Rangers.
I’d expect to see more from the ML panel tomorrow.

I don't have any expectations for this types of cones anymore, which is a good thing, I think. But they really love to hype their cons as something unique and interesting first. Then a few days before the con, they say something like "lower your expectations". And in the it turns out to be underwhelming at best. So nothing new...


Still, I think ML panel will be much better then all previous attempts today. Even if they only show like...two new figures.

This was the most exciting thing revealed today for me:

REAL curious if Hasbro's attempt can match this stylized awesomeness.

$75 for that MODOK is a choice, even with the extra figure. Curious how that does.
For me it's really like $75 for The Captain with a goofy MODOK accessory. I have all the MODOK I need, but am going to have to pay the price to get me my Captain. It's a lot to pay for a six inch figure, but I have to have him man...
You mean Captain Asshole, don't you?!

I don't like the cell-shaded look on figures. I hate that the NECA cartoon Turtles do this. Real 3D figures have real shadows from real light, we don't need to paint them on.

But I do hope we get a re-release of the Retro Jim Lee Storm in silver.

ML always delivers a good amount. SW is known for saying “next event/reveal!” It’s just how they are. Re-releases, repaints and a handful of new things.

I think the success of mandalorian has them unsure how to proceed honestly. It’s like they forgot what it was like to run with something when it’s popular. They haven’t had a merchandising juggernaut since the prequel days.

Given how popular that show is, they should be pumping tie in stuff at a far greater volume.

I was just looking at the guest list again and I saw that Eric Lewald is scheduled to appear during the marvel panel and I know he was one of the show runners for X-Men The Animated Series. So if we are expecting to get some ML styled animated series figs then I’m totally on board. I hope it’s the main focus of the show tomorrow.

Why did everyone start thinking that we were getting figures from the X-Men The Animated Series? :lol: Because of Eric Lewald appearance? We will most likely get some kind of board game or book. Nothing more.


My predictions - 0 X-Men The Animated Series figures.

At best one Morph figure with some other X-Men heads.

As I said, one of the producers of the show has been invited onto the stream as a special guest. You think Hasbro would go through the trouble of inviting this guy on the stream just for the hell of it? Not to mention the 30th anniversary of this show is next year so why not offer X-Men figures from the tv series? It kinda seems like the stars are lining up for this exact purpose.

Well make of this tweet of what you will but I highly doubt that Hasbro went through the effort to ask this guy onto the stream just so he can sit there and wave at the camera.

My expectations aren't high on new wave reveals, but there are 2 things that are mostly easy repaints I've been expecting Hasbro to do for quite sometime that we haven't seen yet:

1) 90s Storm with more accurate hair & costume in silver
2) boxed set X-Men Arcade with game accurate colors

Xmen Animated stuff will likely boil down to more re-releases on retro cards.

Cyclops with the Love Triangle colors without jacket and new optic blast head

Beast with a new calm head

Easy to do and many, many people would double dip for those.
