TRU Series 26

Recommended Posts

Just saw some artwork for Series 26, and it's pretty great.

Three new versions of existing heroes, two highly requested.

Two new versions of existing villains, one highly requested.

One new villain, never made, also fairly requested, if I recall correctly.

No real theme, aside from it ranging from fairly recent to current to imminent.

X-Men, Avengers, Spidey universes are all represented.

I love how this implies that the other two aren't highly requested. :lol:

I'm sure the rest of you will do a better job that I in sussing these out. But I would think that the new Spider-Man Worldwide suit is a lock, with maybe the new Doc Ock paired with it, though I hope we get the Jackal as the new villain (Zach's hints in the animated thread make me think he won't be here but there, though).

Classic?  Modern?  Little bit of both?

 

Was there already a line-up for TRU 25?

Spider sense Spiderman that transforms to peter/chameleon that transforms to mj. Female beetle, negative zone spidey, some other awesome villain and spidey variant I can't recall right this second 

Edit: jack o lantern and modern spidey with the glowing green spider on his chest (not big time spidey, regular blue and red suit)

Iron Doom and Superior Octopus would both make sense to me. 

This would be a good opportunity for Now! Rogue or Cyclops, but I feel like the X-Man will end up being another Wolverine.

My first thought for the Spider-Hero was Spider-Ham, since he's been requested pretty often, but he isn't modern.

Right?
The not highly requested characters could easily go one of two ways though: 
1) They're big names we always get like Wolverine/IM/Cap, or 
2) they're slightly obscure characters like Carrion or Blizzard. 
I am, personally, hoping it turns out to be the latter.

Is the unmade villain a newer character (like She-Beetle) or a modern version of a classic character (like Collector)?

Is Jimmy Hudson Wolverine current or imminent? If we're getting a modern Wolvie variant he seems like a reasonable choice.

Only one character/look could be considered classic, and that's the unmade villain. But he's experienced somewhat of a Renaissance in recent years. His costume has not really changed.

I suppose one of the requested heroes could be considered classic, as the recent costume is similar to a classic one we have not made.

Arcade was just in Gwenpool recently and that would also fit the from the X-Men universe clue.

The unrequested hero may have been requested once or twice, but not extensively. The costume change is comparatively minor. Big name.

The unrequested villain is wearing a very new, I believe unpublished costume. It may become highly requested in the future, but I guess we'll see!

Character is over 30 years old.

 No Wolverines in this assortment.

I wish it was Graviton! 

Atleast one of those is correct.

Here's some crazy guesses for them clues:

Cable / Stryfe

Venom / Kraven

Hulk (Possibly TAH) / Bulked up Abomination

They're characters that could anchor a wave (Venom) or in movies (Cable and Hulk) with a highly requested new character in a classic-esque costume that hasn't changed much (Stryfe) and a highly requested remake (Abomination).  What do y'all think?

Jackal fits the first clue. Rogue fits the second clue (though I suppose a lot of characters do).

None of those are correct.

Very early stages, we work pretty far ahead most of the time. Tru 25 packaging is done, working on Avengers 3 packaging, but not this packaging yet.

Hey Zack, I am halfway through on my customs for Infamous Iron Man and Superior Octopus. Should I stop work on one or both of them?

Do you enjoy making customs, or of it a horrible chore? I'm sure anything you make would be better than ours.
