    When are we getting a Stan Lee minimate?

    I'm aware of that so perhaps likeness was the wrong word, I do remember Zach saying something to the effect of they couldn't just throw him into a movie wave where he made a cameo because of license issues.

    I think it's been said in the past that Stan's likeness wasn't included in the movie licenses.

    The Alien™ Franchise

    Ferro I understand, Bishop is the one that really stands out since DST chose to make a version from a single scene instead of how he appeared in most of the movie and there were plenty of slots where he could have fit in.

    The last Madrox was released nine years ago, at that time we weren't even getting stands with minimates. DST upped their game with accessories since then which I think is a large part of the reason there's still a line to collect. It was a pain to army build last time even with two in the wave. I'm not sure how much of a difference the Angel debacle made there.

    Well, Strong Guy is not the character that I'd sacrifice from this lineup, it's not like he has to be the build-a-figure.

    Which has always been part of my concern about the build-a-figure concept. An extra head or two should be a minimum expectation for a minimate Madrox, even Hasbro knows it's important to selling the character. If the build-a-figure means we're getting worse minimates I'm not sure the extra character is worth it.

    Wave 78

    I just hope people remember that sentiment the next time similar things are said about comic or animated waves. People seem to get a little testy then. I've heard that sentiment before and while I understand it for children I really don't get it for adults. I don't care about the colors in X-Factor's costumes, I care that I had X-Factor #81 as a kid and loved that story (By the way, we totally need Cyber, he wouldn't even need new parts). Getting one step closer to finishing out the 90s major mutants is also a draw. I bought seven Madrox minimates the last time he was made and three when ML made this same costume (though they were nice enough to include extra heads) so I would definitely be up for easier ways to acquire more of him. That's probably not going to happen so I hope he's packed with someone I don't mind having extra of.

    Wow, this place is thick with hate for movie waves. I'm holding judgement for just how awesome this wave is until we get confirmation on exactly what extra parts are included. Since we've never had a cosmic wave I'd be really surprised if that was the next theme.

    Wave 78

    Well, the team did have an awful lot of looks so it's surprisingly easy to make multiple versions. For Havok's team I'm going to have to come up with a recipe for Val Cooper.

    Cover/scene recreations?

    Well, people largely missed the point of the thread anyway so I guess it's not too surprising. Daredevil #182 would work even if it would be kind of similar to Kraven's Last Hunt Spidey.

    Good point, he was often without the trench coat. I'm afraid the build-a-minimate makes it less likely.

    Wave 78

    I'm not too disappointed in Iceman not being in the lineup because I figure the original X-Men are just there to pad out the lineup. I do think we're more than due for an Iceman that would go with the 90s X-Men that isn't 15 years old. Also, if all the accessories are shown in that picture it would mean no extra heads for Madrox. That would be disappointing.
  14. I lost the fight against that temptation a little over a year ago. ML is just killing it on character selection, a lot of the figures are excellent, and many of them are getting cool little extras that you used to only be able to get with minimates.

    Wave 78

    I pictured Strong Guy with bulked-up lower arms too but I suppose regular ones could be a reasonable interpretation of the art. His face is perfect. The rest of the team look awfully good. I suppose Cyclops, Jean, Archangel, and Beast are clever choices to stick with the X-Factor them. Beast and Archangel look like excellent upgrades and Cyclops and Jean are nice if not quite as impressive. Hopefully Cyclops will come with an optic blast but I'm not expecting it.
