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.

The last Madrox didn’t have a BaF part or any alternate heads, so I don’t see how it’d be guaranteed.

It does seem like it’ll be a pain to build up an army of Multiple Men, though. His pack will sell out long before the other three, so either it’ll be rare or the other three will be discounted. Or both.

I wish Beast was smaller and less 90’s looking, but I might end up getting that pack to put him with my classic X-Men.

There's a possibility that he has a detailed chest block under the chest piece like the 90s beast

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.

The Angel situation had me debating on which box to open. It was stressful but made it through.

This wave has me on an X-Men kick. I just went and (re)bought Gambit, Bishop, and Hope. I'm building Morph and trying to figure out a recipe for Mimic lol

That Mimic recipe has alluded me for years. I spent yesterday thinking about a Nocturne and Wild Child.

For Nocturne I found that the Pathfinder Merisiel hairpiece painted blue since it has the pointed ears and pop it on the recent Giant Size Nightcrawler body works pretty well. That's what I did at least. Sorry just remembered that thereasonsy has trouble painting so that wouldn't work...

That reminds me of Nightcrawler from X-Men Evolution. His hair was usually longer like that and he had the ears. (On the topic of Nightcrawler, I'd love to see the recent Bearded Nightcrawler get a Mate)

Not getting a powered down Iceman is a bummer for me. That era of X-Factor is dear to my heart. I have the box set and Angel but a baby blue suit Bobby would make me very happy.

One of the things that's kept me interested in minimates over the years it the possibility of getting stuff that doesn't fit into other lines, like scene-specific minimates and unmasked or depowered looks. Iceman is a perfect example of this, unfortunately the only version of Bobby they've made like this is probably the least popular one they could pick.

Thank you. I like your custom I’m trying to go for a white costume version though. As for the baby blue Iceman I’m IN. All three of these costumes are great and I wish we got them:

I am so thirsty for the graduation and X-Factor versions not be spot on but just do a torso and arms swap. Although I’m not going to lie if we ever got a Jim Lee Bobby I would Kit bash a Vance Astrovick Justice and not care about the big X on him. There is a lot of love for this costume as I stalk the variant Marvel legend of it and it’s always expensive. Also would love a better ice slide. I’ve been meaning to see how this one would work with minimates but I keep forgetting it at my folks place in Sydney.

I'm a bit of a 90's boy. I would totally go a Jim Lee era powder and royal blue depowered Drake.

Also, did I miss the part where everybody freaks out over the new effects for Havok and Lorna or-- are you all just ignoring how amazing they are? Pretty sure you can slide their arms straight through the center circle for a really fantastic Havok pose

The new power pieces look like the legends one and I’ve mugged a pair or two legends for those pieces. It will be nice to have them in a real scale.

Since they look so similar to the ubiquitous ML pieces they didn't even register as new at first. They do look pretty cool.

It's gonna be weird seeing Jean Grey, Wolfsbane, and Polaris (thanks to their hairpieces) taller than Strong Guy. Doesn't he look short compared to the other 'mates in this line?

He does. I will probably pull the crotch peg out as far as I can to make home taller. I did that with the big Kree from Captain Marvel and he looks much better to my eye

Crouch wolfsbane, put Jean and Polaris on flight stands. Done. 

But for real, without having him in person, it's hard to tell if you can do anything to him to make him taller. But this is also the problem with minimates. Just be glad we got a strong guy, I guess 

Also, those new effects would look cool with jubilee

It's not unusual for minimates at an event to be put together slightly incorrectly so it's possible Guido's chest block is further down than it should be anyway.

Too bad Wolfsbane doesn't have Wolf Man hands and feet. I guess that's in keeping with the other Marvel wolf and cat people.

Yeah it’s a little disappointing but thankfully the Wolfman is easy to come by 🤷🏻‍♂️

Maybe a waist riser and Frankenstein feet could add a little height.
