Heck yeah for the Ronan/IM 2-pack! Now, is 19 themed or hodgepodge? New stuff or classic stuff? Redos or new characters? Any overlap with 60?

If it's themed, I'm leaning towards a GotG (please have the original guardians in there) or just a cosmic wave. It makes sense. Cap got a comic wave, Spidey and the X-Men got comic box sets, so why shouldn't Marvel's new hot property not get some comic love? Anyway, since I'm here, I might as well post my Guardians wave:

LCS:

Star-Lord (2008)/modern Gamora+Cosmo

StarHawk/Vance Astro

Charlie 27/Badoon

Yondu/Badoon

TRU:

Martinex/Skrull or Phylla-Vel

Gladiator/Modern Drax+modern Rocket

IM/Ronan

Adam Warlock (with Magus head)/Medusa

Well, since 58 and 59 are X-Men themed, its a safe bet that if 60/19 share a theme, it won't be X-Men.

My guess is Iron Man comic. Wave 36 was the last dedicated comic IM wave.

However...

It has been a while since we got a comic Spidey themed wave (Wave 43) or Thor wave (Wave 42).

Hulk still has never had a comic themed wave.

FF was fairly recent with Wave 48/Wave 15.

Cap themed wave is definitely out with 54/55/18.

I think there are enough loose threads right now for a hodgepodge wave. The timing would be good for a Cosmic wave as well. No matter how you look at it, we're already getting a new character and a new IM armor. Off to a good start.

I'm betting everything I've got to a cosmic/GotG wave. As I said, all of this year's movies got both movie and comic mates. Either in the form of waves or box sets. GotG is the only movie to not get any comic attention so I think that's a clue. Plus, Godkiller IM appeared first on GotG and Ronan is a cosmic character.

It sounds like 60/19 have been in the planning stages for a while, and I don't think DST would have had enough faith in the GOTG brand to plan 2 entire waves of Minimates around them or other Cosmic Marvel characters before seeing concrete box office/Wave 57 sales numbers.

If orders for Wave 57 have been strong, maybe we'll get a boxset next year, but right now I think you are putting the cart before the horse. I would love to be wrong though! :)

Personally, I'm not a fan of theme waves. It's nice if you like that theme, but if you don't you're SOL. And with the way Marvel comic waves are coming now, that basically means that every other corner of the MU doesn't get touched.

Of course, all that goes out the window if they do a cosmic wave with a PROPER ROCKET RACCOON. other_beatingA_DeadHorse.gif

Maybe you're right. But Marvel is giving the Guardians a huuuuge boost. An animated series is on the way and they announced GotG 2 at SDCC. Maybe DST had instructions to not release both a comic and movie wave together, but release some comic Guardians down the line.

Chuck did say at C2E2 that they wanted to do a boxset of the Classic GOTG but Marvel wouldn't allow product for versions of the GOTG other than the Movie versions as to avoid any brand confusion.

Although, that was before Marvel announced the new book with the classic characters.
