I'm not sure of the Haslab rules, but would anything prevent Hasbro from rereleasing Sentinel with different color deco? They could make one colored the X-Men:TAS or even a red and yellow Mastermold. Would that violate their rules or is that a way to skirt around them?

The only sentinels I think I'd be interested in, at this point, would be something like the classic Mk II style sentinels; ~15-18", no shoulder pads, more or less just looking like super tall men in purple and fuchsia outfits, or the X-Men the Arcade Game style, human sized sentinels.

This is exactly what I'd want. Maybe even a hair shorter so they could comfortably fit in a detolf.

I'm in for multi-figure box sets ala LOSH. Gimme a decades project: 60s, 70s, etc. If we're talking $25/fig, that's 16 in a $400 box. 20 with 4 tiers. First appearances, milestones, team-ups.

I'm not convinced any of the other suggestions are more viable. So I'm of the opinion that another Sentinel is probably their safest bet

Hasbro just revealed the GI Joe Classified 6" HISS Tank HasLab, will we be seeing the Legends HasLab at the next livestream? I know Dan said the Legends team doesn't have a stream setup for June but that they would see us in July.

I’m pretty much done with marvel legends haslabs. Sentinel and galactus were both obvious choices but that’s why they worked for me and tons of other people. I don’t go too deep into the weeds on marvel characters.

There’s really nothing haslab could show me on the big figure front that would motivate me. I gotta imagine that collectors like me are taken into account on deciding on another big figure. Obvious wide spread appeal.

The big stuff I’d want would so impractical and not wide appealing enough to get made. Some sort of x-mansion for instance.

Outside of that, I’d be interested in figure sets but those aren’t going to be a haslab.

I really hope it's not a necessity this time... do the quin jet... or do MCU Giant Man... or like MCU black widows gauntlets.... or Training stuit X-men box set...

Just don't do me dirty and give me a $300 Cameron Hodge, or a Young Avengers Box set... Shuma-Gorath, or Fing Fang foom... give the giant expensive figures a breather.

With the Joe team going with a vehicle, I could see the Hell Charger. Still hoping for Mangog.

A vehicle makes sense and would justify a purchase.

If it's a some super deluxe role play thing it will be nice to skip a huge expense this Summer.

These guys are the safe bets...

They've done Sentinel and Galactus... and Diamond Select is doing a 7in scale Apocalypse... so that leaves comic Giant Man

If Vegas had betting odds on Marvel Legends Haslabs

Comic Giant man would probably 1:1 or +100

Fin Fang Foom would probably be next at 2:1 or +200

I'm fine if they do comic Giant Man and assorted giant people as regular releases at approximately the Surtur size and pricepoint.

I’m really hoping for a sub-$200 HasLab. I think there’s a few options for bigger characters that are too obscure for retail. Cameron Hodge, Keee Supreme Intelligence, 12” scale dod Dragon Man, Mangog, or Awesome Android.

Price increases are hitting everyone. GI Joe dropping a HasLab as waves ship for both ML and Joes, and more that could be hitting any day. The “bigger is always better” HasLab model could use a breather. Outside of Foom, I think Hasbro’s already done the two mandatory big characters. A $400 HasLab isn’t something I’m dying to see this year.
