    wave 79

    (I suppose if you want to include retcons, you could justify squeezing Hulkling from the Young Avengers into a Kree/Skrull War wave.)
  2. That's what it looks like, Shaman crotch and the Street Fighter chest block I was using for someone else (and it still doesn't match). and there's my kitbash between the two Wonder Men, since someone asked - Chest, arms and belt from one and everything else from the other..

    wave 79

    I think pushing TWO Inhumans into the wave is a bit overkill - especially since the Inhumans strand was mostly a diversion. Triton at least was VERY prominent when he showed up and had that really iconic Neal Adams splash-page (he was also the cliffhanger in the issue before!). Mar-Vell I think should have white hair but also have the blonde hair as a pack-in. I would say there needs to be some Skrull representation... maybe "Skrull Empress" which would be modelled on the princess or whatever. Or just have an army building two-pack of new Kree and Skrull soldiers - that would be great (both their mates are quite anachronistic) but I can't imagine they'd be good for shelves. Maybe do what the Marvel Legends did and include alternate parts so you can say it's Original Captain Marvel vs. Super-Skrull as well as an army builder.

    wave 79

    Maybe a Kree/Skrull War wave is more likely? Hawkeye as Goliath, re-dos of classic Vision and Mar-Vell and maybe Scarlet Witch, Wasp, Yellowjacket, maybe a new Classic Thor even... an army builder of Kree or Skrull... can even slip Triton in there to help get another bit of the Inhumans royal family built. BAF of... Rick Jones (which would be a waste to me since you can really easily make a perfect Rick Jones with a Predators Minimate)? maybe air force Carol Danvers? Or even the Supreme Intelligence (I'd have no idea how they'd do that, be interesting that's for sure)

    wave 79

    OGS is one of my favourite Avengers stories but it has been a story Marvel have buried. Editorial generally don't like anything from the early 90s because "90s comics are awful". Yep, Sersi is such an easy custom, the minute that Enchantress was announced I wanted it just for that. Also with OGS you've got even more long in-demand characters, outside of the Avengers - Lilandra, Deathbird, Shi'ar army builder, Imperial Guard, new Kree or Skrull army builders, Binary, I would honestly say getting a OGS wave is only ever going to be disappointing because no matter what you're probably not going to get all the characters you'd want or wished for from the story. We'd definitely get a Quasar at least.
  6. If nobody else does, Give me a few hours and I'll knock it together when I get home.

    wave 79

    There was a What If based on Operation Galactic Storm that had Cap wear some armor. Or if you want to be very loose, the issues that directly followed Operation Galactic Storm were... CAP-WOLF... Can't say Iron Man space armor is particularly exciting, the one from OGS was just the Neo-Classic armor with a bit of a backpack and no mouth on his helmet. Honestly, a re-do of neo-classic or modular would be more enticing that a obscure armor that doesn't look good to begin with. I think a re-do of Wonder Man would be prime fodder for an OGS wave. Since he was one of the 5 "main" characters. Pack him with white Vision. And considering she's in a movie now, Doctor Minerva and Binary would definitely probably be in that wave before a lot of needed Avengers like Starfox, Sersi and Crystal. Also if Gilgamesh ever ever gets a Minimate, I will eat a Minimate hat. But I don't ever imagine why they'd do a wave spinning out of a story Marvel themselves ignore. I was hoping we'd get an comic Infinity War wave but it's becoming less and less likely the further we get from that movie. Loads of stuff from that which would be great. A new classic Thanos, bulked up Drax, classic Gamora, Magus, Moondragon, Quasar, Death... heck, even most of those Avengers from OGS (those events were pretty much back-to-back with each other).
  8. We'll never get them ever but I would love to see the Ultimate Universe re-done. And in most cases actually finished off.
  9. I honestly had considered using that but I couldn't immediately find a chest block that matched the arms and legs. But even still, the Rogue bit - it's not quite right for that design. Very close though.
  10. Glad i'm not alone. I really hate it. If only there was a print underneath or something, the Minimate would be improved about 90%.

    wave 79

    If we get another FF wave and still don't get a Crystal or a new She-Hulk...

    wave 79

    I think Red Guardian is at the least a notable design (more so than he is a character), people do either know the design without having actually read anything with him in or at least can tell a lot from just the costume. I think it's not just to "pad a Captain America wave", I think it's also that he is... well... a representation for a country. Like, Union Jack always gets figures (weirdly more than Captain Britain) and Guardian is usually the first port of call for Alpha Flight characters - I think characters having a flag on them is a big reason, I think that helps them appeal a little more to people not versed in comics.
  13. Yeah, I really like the MvC Doom... just not in hand. It looks great but he's just not very poseable. He looks good if you just have him stood static and that's it. I think whenever I want to pose him or play with him, I tend to give him Spectre's cape and hood and some spare Ultron arms.

    wave 79

    Let's have a Defenders boxset with Luke Cage, that Valkyrie, Hellcat and Red Guardian. Then I can turn my attention to moaning about not having a Clea, a Son of Satan and a Gargoyle.
  15. Can't believe I forgot Ronin. Definitely.
  16. For the nitpicky, opinionated and the indignant - which old or previously released Minimates would you like a redo of? Mine: Daredevil (Yellow) We really really need a new version of Daredevil's original costume, we've had some fantastic Daredevil's and I want a yellow one to match those. If just for the D-Man Within. Drax (Infinity Gauntlet) First up, I don't mind this one, it's good enough at capturing his earlier appearance - but what I do mind is that for the story this was meant to be from - it's off. Drax was in his big dumb brute form in Infinity Gauntlet and this is crying out for Hulk pieces to bulk him up. Firestar I mean, this is coming, surely... right? Yeah? Surely? Hercules I absolutely hate this Minimate - the really bad printing on the skirt piece, the torso being totally blank underneath the the chest piece, that chest piece itself, the colours and it just looking awful next to a Thor Minimate.. Hulk (Pantheon) Really unlikely this one, but this was the costume he wore in Infinity Gauntlet and for that I want this one redone. For the time being, Professor Hulk legs on a regular Hulk will suffice... BUT I'd be down for a new version of this instantly. Human Torch (Invaders) This... doesn't really looke anything like the Golden Age Human Torch. His face was generally depicted without features and instead just vertical lines. Same is true of his chest. There are Johnny Storm Human Torches that look a bit more like the guy than this. Iron Fist (Classic) I think the modern Iron Fist we have (the Best Of) is brilliant but I would like to see a Classic Iron Fist with that level of love. Also, I'd love a red variant... Power Man (Classic) Needed badly. Really badly. The modern Luke Cage's are fine, but this is MY Luke Cage and he's badly represented alongside everyone else with an ancient Minimate! The zombie one was a bit of a tease, but I still think DST could do an even better version now. Phoenix (Dark Phoenix) I'm honestly surprised we've never gone back to the well and gotten a new iteration of Dark Phoenix. We've got two good 'mates of the Green version and a good 'mate of the White, but this is all we've got for the Red. C'mon, some of us want to make a Rachel Summers kitbash here! She-Hulk We've got two She-Hulks but I'm just not satisfied with either. Maybe it's my desire to have a more classic attired She-Hulk, maybe it's because neither of these really works well with spare Susan Storm parts, or maybe they're just not particularly great at capturing the character's likeness and personality. U.S.Agent Most the parts from this are still decent, just the fact the arms are generally wrong (it's a frequent artist mistake people give him white sleeves ala Captain America's) and the shield being completely wrong. Also, incredibly doubtful, but I am one of the only ones but I'd kill for a mask like this instead of the ones Cap's usually have. Vision (Classic) I mean, c'mon, the guy is essential to most Avengers line-ups and you nailed that "modern" design and this old version is really lame - even if, like me, you get spare Loki parts to kitbash non-phasing parts. Wonder Man Wasn't going to list him because the second one is actually pretty decent but also because I was fortunate enough to get both and use the good parts from each to kitbash a really satisfying Minimate that is perfect, but he really could do with a new version for everyone else to get. Honorable mentions to: Thanos (Infinity Gauntlet), 90s X-Men, Hyperion, Yellowjacket, Skaar, Nimrod and also almost any DC one...

    wave 79

    Only if Red Guardian can have an alt female chest block too (and alt female head) too! ! I do think Red Guardian is likely eventually - he's managed to have both Marvel Legends and Marvel Universe figures made already - but since he's a character that really is only going to be made for the recognizable design/costume and representation status as a notable flag hero rather than for any character - I'd really hate to get him and have DST miss the opportunity to get one more classic Defenders member out there. Especially since otherwise her chances are zilch (despite being the most long-lived and notable of the Red Guardians).
  18. THAT's exactly why i thought of the Hellfire club
  19. How the Marvel Legends did Skullbuster is good... get him and also get one of those Hellfire Club goons that became cyborgs. I must admit, the idea of Reavers BEFORE Hellfire Club is insane to me. We could definitely get a great wave based around Hellfire Club WITH some decent names to help the wave. A new White Queen Emma Frost, Sebastian Shaw, Miss Sinister, Donald Pierce, Madelyne Pryor, Shadow King. Maybe Headmaster Magneto? (the OTHER purple one) Then we can talk Reavers...

    wave 79

    Put an alt female chest block and you can potentially double these huge sales...
  21. Who says that the tank has to be that big? They could take artistic license and make it the size of a torso with treads.
  22. Legion would be a good shout for such a wave, since he was in that Muir Island/Reaver story... and he's, y'know, got a TV show out and is screaming for a Minimate.
  23. That is the only appearance of it. Concept sketches. None of those characters wore those costumes ever.
  24. Ghost? as well as Homecoming Spider-Man and Scarlet Spider
  25. I've got a few Mimics... none of them are great... I'd be keen to hear other people's attempts. I have an Exiles Mimic which is a bit pathetic using this which doesn't really work but it's the closest I could get (also obviously, Angel wings and Strike Force Wolverine claws and spare colossus parts for alt looks!). I ave him an Best of Iron Fist head. He work a jacket in a few issues and it doesn't look that off with a jacket on it. (since the arms and sides of his chest are the most inaccurate). with jacket For a Silver Age Mimic, All New Beast has got a great hair piece with visor and feet and All New Angel for his wings. All New Iceman / Cyke also have potential for a modern Mimic. And the new X-Factor Havok has some parts that could be useful too (I'm thinking the head).
