People don't already have a dozen extra Wolverine heads laying around ready to use for Fang?

Astonishing Emma and Scott. So psyched. Not in love with Emma's head, will probably swap with the black outfit Walgreens Emma. Cyke looks great, not surprised he's on the Vulcan body.

Monet and Chamber look dope. Hope they don't waste time making Synch, Skin, Husk, and Jubilee in these uniforms.

Corsair looks great. Fang is fine. Wish Quentin Quire was in his schoolboy uniform.

Entire wave looks amazing and that Cyclops is unbelievable. Excited to see more of the Chamber body without the explosives, could be a cool civilian build.

I wasn't watching with sound and I don't think they showed them off but did they allude to whoever the X-Men BaF was?

Cyclops and Emma have sculpted piping on their uniforms?! They could have cheaped out, but instead these got the treatment! I am gonna go out of my mind for the reveals of the rest of the team.

Said it would be revealed in early 2023. They then teased another Starjammer coming in 2023 and then showed off Sikorsky, who usually sits on CH'OD's shoulders, so he would be a pretty good guess. Although, maybe he comes as a Deluxe release and the BAF is someone like Raza, who would require a number of unique parts?

CH'OD will need to be pretty big, but not sure he has the name appeal to be a deluxe release, so BAF seems more likely to me.

Raza and Hepzibah might make a good two-pack, maybe add-in a true Lilandra.

I would have to imagine CH'OD will see a lot of re-use from the Abomination BAF.

Emma's a beautifully executed figure body sculpt alone. New heels! Huzzah!

I both understand and dislike her face sculpt. Definitely in for a swap of some sort.

M is a character who I have no attachment to but I'm glad the people who have been requesting her are getting her, and in the costume I've seen most requested to boot.

Or if he doesn’t, they’ll use Ch’od for an A-Bomb figure at some point.

The sneak that Ch'od will be the BAF for the wave (probably) is great. It shouldn't be too surprising since they can leverage so much of Abomination to get him done. But now I'm worried about how we get Raza and especially Hepzibah. A box set would have made sense if Ch'od weren't getting released this way. A re-release of Corsair in a 5 pack with Ch'od, Hepzibah, Raza and Lilandra or Deathbird... but I don't think they'd pack the BAF in a 5 pack to rebuy.

Maybe they'll do a Raza/Hepzibah/Deathbird 3-pack? I could live with that. But I'll be mad if I'm left with half the team for years. Also Deathbird needs to get done.

Fang makes sense but it's always so depressing that he and Gladiator are the only members of the Imperial Guard likely to get made. Maybe Warstar since he got a vintage figure. But there's so many cool characters in the Guard and just no way Hasbro gets to any of them.

Is this the first X-Men wave, besides AoA wave 2, with no Wolverine figure?

There are a few Guard members that would be easy repaints (Smasher, Starbolt, Neutron, Tempest, Impulse, Mentor, Astra, Magic) that could randomly show up similar to Vertigo.
