With the reveal of wave 77 last week, it seems an appropriate time to begin speculating about the next comic book specialty wave to be released; Wave 78! What theme and characters do you think it will be? Or which theme or characters are you wishing for?

I'd like a gladiator (shi'ar) and Boomerang from superior foes. Is that too much to ask for?

It is definitely going to be 90's x-Factor this time

I can see this being a Space X-Men themed wave. I remember awhile back Zach had a comment that hinted at Gladiator and Shi'ar figures being in the works. My completely fan boy guesses based on nothing at all but that:

Gladiator and Lilandra
Korvus and Rachel
Havok and Vulcan
Wolverine as Fang and Deathbird
Build a figure: Corsair or D'Ken

If D'Ken is the BAF then release a Starjammers box set later in the year with Corsair, Cho'd, Hepzibah, and Raza.

90's Jim Lee X-Men - heavy hitters and LONG overdue for a revisit.

- Cyclops / Jean Grey

- Rogue / Gambit

- Storm / Archangel

- Psylocke / Wolverine

BAF Beast, Ice-man, Colossus, or Magneto

I feel like this wave will be the Comic version of Dark Phoenix "Movie" similar to the Spider-Man Far From Home scenario. If so perhaps it is

Dark Phoenix / Cyclops

Gladiator / Warstar

Phoenix /Shiar Solider

Sebastian Shaw / Hellfire Goon

BAF - Lilandra

which I find to be the most illogical way of doing it so it has the greatest possibility.  This way you are leaning into the ToyBiz wave. Have army builders but not in a convenient way. Give us a spread of the story line (Hellfire and Shiar) and have a popular "unpopular" BAF. But I"m cyncial without a cup of coffee.

I was thinking the same thing. However, I think it'd be smarter to simply go with just Shi'ar and space characters since it seems the Hellfire Club won't play a role in the movie. I know that probably seems like an unpopular opinion, but from a business standpoint it seems most logical for me. 

Battle Damaged Cyclops (X-Men #137) / Gladiator

Professor X / Lilandra

Dark Phoenix / Shi'ar Soldier

Phoenix / Shi'ar Soldier

I tend to agree with the Dark Phoenix wave theory, makes sense with the release of the movie, if that's what DST is trying to do nowadays based on what wave 77 offers

Maaaan, I hope it's not classic. Wave 77 is classic so I hope this is a modern wave. I'm cool with it being X-Men, just none of what's being suggested.

I think X-related 90's costumes are likely given the nostalgia cycle.  If so, I'd love to see them complete some X-Force line-ups or bang out a killer X-Factor wave.

It’ll never happen, but I’m going to throw out my All-Villain wave suggestion just for funsies.

I would love this but without a TRU or A con exclusive  I don’t think we will ever see these.

I'm going to throw a wild guess for classic Avengers. I think we could get a few of the missing characters people have been asking for. Maybe a Hellcat or Jocasta or Swordsman or even a FA Wonder Man. Mantis would fit that list too.

Regardless, I'm excited to see what's coming. I'm very glad comic waves are rolling out frequently again, that's what got me into this line from the start.

Capullo's Sunspot seems to be the only X-Force costume I can think of blatantly neglected from that era. What else were you thinking?

With Zach mentioning there would be some heavy hitters in this wave, I can't help but think A-list and B-list X-Men or Avengers.

The problem with a Dark Phoenix set is that era of X-Men suits were done in the recent Giant-Size wave. I'd much prefer just a random X-Men wave. 

Kitty Pryde and Shadow King

Lilandra and Gladiator

Updated 90s Cable and Stryfe

Some random A or B-List X-Men and Arcade

I also want X-Factor but it seems unlikely.

I think after the Black Knight wave our Classic Avengers dreams are dust.

We are missing Bobby, Warpath, and Feral from that era.

The main X-Men costumes have been done but we still have a Dark Phoenix in need of a redo, the Hellfire Club, the Imperial Guard and the StarJammers all from that story. I'd give them a hall pass and let them slip in a Sprite and/or Binary to help round out the era but unlikely.

If ONLY. I am dying for the Peter David X-Factor wave but my hopes are pretty much dashed at this time until we get distribution sorted. I can't see Walgreens holding an older wave, but then again I never saw them carrying Avengers BC. Maybe if it was offered like the Lost wave online? A nostalgia wave would have to be in LCS, Cons, and online Toys stores like Luke, BBTS, or maybe they will finally get a DST store together like we have been asking for for years.  Whenever I see a He-Man or Gi Joe collector edition I get really bitter that we don't have that option.

Throw in Stryfe and a Cable-variant to anchor and you have a wave of 90's nostalgia that's so hot right now.

90s Cable could use an update.

We just got a pretty good 90's Cable in the classic X-Force set.
