I hope so!!!! He seems like a figure that can be made with existing parts very easily, with a new head or two. Mantis and Swordsman are a great pairing. More never-been-made Avengers please!!!!
Mantis, Swordsman, and Moondragon in their classic looks have been on my top ten for years. The 70's are woefully underrepresented on my Avengers shelf.
I think the 80’s is probably the most underrepresented section across the MU. Until these new retro figures, we really only have figures that cross from other eras. My 80’s shelf is:
Punk Storm
Dazzler
Forge
X-Factor Cyclops
Retro Iceman
Silver Centurion IM
JC Spider-Woman
War Machine
Tigra
Hercules
Black Knight
Black Panther wave Namor
Agreed. More 80s representation please! I quit comics in the mid-90s but the 80s looks are my jam.

1000x yes to more 80s greaties.

And keep away the dark/metallic/modernized paint schemes too.

Luckily for those that focus on the 70s or the 80's or the 90''s, Moondragon's classic green suit with the big cape stayed fairly consistent, with the exception of going from a sort of one-piece swimsuit that covered her... assets... to an extreme thong and straps that barely covered her upper chestal area. She did have a few other suits in the Defenders and Avengers Infinity, but always went back to the classic green. So the classic green suit will fit on so many different shelves.

Even though I prefer the Green Moondragon costume, her mid 80s black and white Defenders costume would be neat, too.

War Machine may be the ultimate ‘90s character. He’s definitely in the running with Cable, AzBats, and the “Reign of the Supermen” guys.

We should have a contest of "Who Was The Most 90's Character? To The Extreme!!!"

Who had the most leathery leather jacket? Who had the most leg and arm pouches? Who had the most cybernetic body parts? Who carried the most ridiculously oversized gun?

And for female characters, who had the most thong-tastic skin revealing costume? Who had the biggest hair? Who had the highest high heels? Who had the biggest <ahem> "personality"?

Who would win the ultimate title of the most 90's of 90's characters? Cable? Gambit? AzBats? Mullet Superman? Darkhawk? Rogue? Psylocke? Cast your votes!

Note: All Image characters are excluded from voting because every single one of them was infused with so much maximum nineties-ness it would be impossible to pick just one.

The answer to all of the above is Cable.

GameStop sent me a notification that the retro-carded Loki and Falcon I ordered from them will be shipping soon.

So, will I be getting them in 2 weeks or 2 months? Hard to tell from that GameStop notification.

I Reeeealy hope we get a safari jacket or a george perez wonder man soon along with an updated yellow jacket.

I guess. Though honestly, I never really thought Wonder Man had a good costume until the Blue and red one he had in West Coast Avengers. And while they did make that figure, it's really terrible looking. Not one of their better efforts. I'd like to see a GOOD version of him in that costume.

But a Classic Mocking Bird - yes for sure! I didn't bother with the modern look, but I'd pick her up.

After seeing the sad news about George Pérez today I hope they do a series of figures based on his designs. His version of Beast, safari jacket Wonder Man, Silverclaw, Firestar, Justice, etc etc etc.

He deserves every form of tribute there is.

I would kill to get a Perez Avengers wave. He's one of the nicest creators I ever had the pleasure of meeting. Twice! I feel so bad for him and his family, especially at this time of year.

I would totally buy this entire wave in a heartbeat!
