Much thanks to JT Prime for both these, the Thor and Black Panther listings. The remaining three figures are said to be comic based. Moon Knight, She-Hulk, Secret Invasion and Ms. Marvel all drop next year; there'll likely be an additional two waves to feature those characters, or at least a number of additional store exclusives and/or box sets.

SPECULATION/EDUCATED GUESSES

Spider-Man: No Way Home wave 2/other release
Image
Spoiler! :
Image
It's pretty much inevitable. The first wave contained none of the villains for the movie or
Spoiler! :
the two alternate Spider-Men.
At the very least I think it's likely we get the two Spideys, Doc Ock, Green Goblin and Electro. Lizard I could see if they retool the old 2012 Amazing Spider-Man figure. Sandman is a bigger question mark but perhaps as a BAF like Molten Man.

Retro Iron Man wave (June)
Image
Image

This one kinda came outta nowhere; Rektangular claims there are store codes hinting at a Spring release for something called Classic Legends Iron Man.

No idea what could be in this wave other than an obligatory Modular repaint in more "comic booky" red and yellow, possibly with an alternate cartoon-inspired head, and the classic Mandarin I'd previously suspected would be a Walgreens exclusive. Shang-Chi raised the character's mainstream profile significantly, he's a character collectors have been asking for from Hasbro for years now, and it just makes too much sense.

Something for the upcoming Insomniac Spider-Man sequel
Image

We already have Peter and Miles, and there's been increasing precedent for Gamerverse stuff. I expect at least an updated Spider-Man (maybe a deluxe release with the bionic back legs) and maybe Venom.

Movie Carnage
Image

Nothing earth shattering here. The movie was a hit and just about every other toy company including Hot Toys and Funko have already made him. Given we eventually got movie Venom after a delay, I think there's a good chance Carnage is released to round out the duo.

Into the Spider-Verse 2 wave
Image

We got a wave for the first movie, albeit after much delay. That's the only reason I'm mixed on the prospect of this; given how long it took to get the first wave, I wouldn't be surprised if there was another wait on these until at least next year.


Kind of another no brainer. We got toys for the anniversary of the X-Men movies, and both Dwight and Ryan had said last year they were interested in doing something for the anniversary of the first Raimi movie if legal stuff allowed it. Given some of those characters are returning for No Way Home, this could be a potential way to reuse parts as well.

Props for putting all that info together. There’s already a lot of product scheduled for ‘22, and the year hasn’t started yet.

Would be pretty cool if the Walgreens theme is narrowed down to Barons rather than just villains.
Mordo, Strucker, Blood, um yes please!

Seems like plenty of material.

I said do...

Baron Helmut Zemo
Baron Blood
Baron Mordo
Baron Heinrich Zemo

That's the coolest theme in years, to be honest.

I’d honestly be all over an All Barons Walgreens year. Blood and Mordo alone would be amazing.

I’m really hoping that the Walgreens Robot Kingdom exclusives theme for 2022 is Thunderbolts.

Great post, thanks for consolidating all of that info! I would include the Walmart exclusive classic Doc Strange as well.

I’m 100% in on the Baron theme, that would be terrific! After Zemo I want Mordo, Strucker & Blood in that order.

1. The reaver with the tank treads instead of legs.

2. Rhino reissue, no doubt.

3. Fun clue. I have this entire set. Gonna look over them when I get home and come up with an answer that is guaranteed to come true!

Knull is in the Spider Anniversary Line, in a two pack with Venom, I believe.

That Zemo looks great; it's exactly what I want to put on my shelf.

I'm also looking forward to a Toad, even though I feel like they're going to use the Doc Ock/Leap Frog body and that seems kinda big.

I'll keep my eye open for which Mandarin they choose. I want the mid-80s shirtless skirt version, but I suspect they'll do the green-skin shoulder pads from the cartoon.

Any new clues about any more Fox X-men figures?
I feel like they hinted at Colossus vs Juggernaut at one point, but then nothing came of it.

I think the only way they do that version of mandarin is if they do a retro iron man line....

:O they're going to do a retro iron man line aren't they?!
