Is there any possibility some of those are MCU (like Hulk/Banner)?
I hope so. Would be disappointing to not get any Saga make ups at all next year either (this year we only got Ned). I am hoping maybe Thor/Destroyer is also MCU
MCU is getting more love than ever next year with all the movie waves and best of wave. I’m hoping the anniversary sets are all comic, especially the Banner figure. Hasbro has already done an MCU Banner, but not a comic one. The last comic one was from Toy Biz 20 years ago.

Yeah, lots of MCU stuff next year, but it's all current stuff. There is still Saga era stuff a lot of us still want. Like this year, we basically got Ned/Peter in the Spider-Man 60th line from the Saga era, and that's it. I am not saying make the entire 60th Avengers line MCU based, but a couple items would be welcome given the limited opportunities for those kind of offerings. The Best Of thing doesn't really count cause those are all basically repaints.

Plus, MCU fans got nothing for the 10 year anniversary of The Avengers movie

Fingers crossed for a surprise 1st Appearance Wasp at regular size.
I'd love a comic Crossfire!

I’d be willing to bet there will be an Avengers boxed set with the original members coming.
And I really do hope the 60th stuff is comic-style. I’m happy to share the line with MCU stuff, but there is A LOT of that on this list. If there are comic-style, there’s just a ton of my most-wanted figures in here.

A 80th Thor done up in some more vibrant comic colors and a classic Destroyer would be sweet.

I’m more OK with the retro Hawkeye than most, but a classic version with a dedicated sculpt and a more dynamic face is something I’d warmly welcome.

Crossing Monica and Wonderman off my top 10 is a step in the right direction. BUT WHERE’S COUNT NEFARIA?

No Jack of Hearts or Stingray is a bummer, but there’s some strong Avengers stuff coming. If they stick a decent BAF in the Wonder Man / Strucker / Orb wave, that’s a shoe in for wave of the year.

Is there really a MCU Banner figure? I truly can't remember lol. If there is one, I unfortunately didn't get it.

Yes, in an Amazon set from 2015 for Age of Ultron.

Oh, that's right! It's pre photo-real, so that's why it wasn't on my radar.

I wonder if they're finally going to develop a more articulated female body with the Black Widow figure? Otherwise I fail to see why they would specify it as being super poseable.

All the female bodies need at this point is ab crunch, and butterfly joints.

So true. It would be nice to get a female body with articulation on part with their male contemporaries.

Psyched for a new classic Hawkeye even if I have to buy the cycle too. And judging from the crazy aftermarket prices I’m not alone. Also happy to add Wonderman to my West Coast shelf. I might be into original Avengers figs too but Bronze Age 70s/80s costumes are my real jam.

Was thinking about this myself. Shoulder articulation? Maybe, but may be restrictive due to their chest. The new chest torso with lower ab crunch, does seem likely, though. Maybe toe articulation. Can't imagine what else.

They could definitely do swing out butterfies that allow arms to go forward more while not being as restricted by the breast sculpt. I'd be fine with either a lower ab crunch with a ball joint up top, or just 2 ball joints like MAFEX figures.

If the Monica/Doom 2-pack is Secret Wars related...
2024 is the 40th Anniversary of Secret Wars. Maybe they'll follow up with a Titania, Volcana and Wasp (in purple and green) boxset in 2024, or as individual characters in a wave. It would be really nice to complete the entire cast.

I'm totally aligned with the shout out on this thread and other threads for Stingray. Maybe next year! I like my never-been-made-before classic Avengers. 2023 is Sersi, maybe 2024 is Stingray.
