Walgreens & TRU waves have featured 3 2-packs many times whilst  the 'variant' pack in the LCS waves seems to have almost become history .......3 packs to a wave is IMHO better than no wave.

Basically they just replaced the variant figure with the build a figure. Which they probably should have done years ago.

Operation Galactic Storm is a great guess; I can think of three characters off the top of my head (Quasar, Sersi, and Crystal) that have never been made, and several redos (most notably Hercules) that would be welcome. Under Siege is another good guess, and there's plenty of never-made villains in that story (plus, again, Herc) that would make people happy.

I’d happily go with Operation Galactic Storm as it could give us Quasar, Gladiator, Lilandra, Death Bird, Binary, MockingBird, Hercules, Vision, Crystal, Sersi, US Agent, Wonderman and even Hawkeye as Goliath.

I can't make it fit New Warriors either, I know a couple of us have requested them...

Three new characters (my wave is 4)- Night Thrasher, Namorita, Rage, Marvel Boy/Justice

Four Redos (I only come up with 3) - Firestar, Speedball (Penance), Nova

Otherwise I'm going with a 90's character wave

Three new characters - Darkhawk, Speedball, Death's Head (I or II)

Four redos - ???

I would love for it to be Operation: Galactic Storm (there's so many great figures to be made), but I can't see it fitting in Zach's clues...

Easy. Any mix between Quasar, Lilandra, Crystal, Gladiator, Sersi.

two highly requested re-dos and two other redos, one long overdue (only the second version in 10 years) and the other made only once but more recently.

Hercules fits the last 10 years description. That Champions set was released in 2009. 90s style Black Knight I can see as the other re-do done more recently. But who would the other two "highly requested" re-dos be? I can't see a Galactic Storm assortment without Captain America (it is essentially a Captain America story) and he definitely isn't due for a redo. Who else is a highly requested re-do? Vision? I've certainly heard cries for a classic Vision, but not the pale, unfeeling Vision present in this story. I haven't seen a lot of outcry for Wonder Man and he's the only guy after Vision I could fathom being a highly requested re-do. 

I would love to have an assortment based off of Operation: Galactic Storm, but I just don't see it fitting in with the clues. Especially without a Captain America.

Galactic Storm would be awesome! Just read it for the first time a few weeks ago.

Are new costumes considered a redo or new character? Vision, Goliath, Binary...

Based on my understanding and previous wave threads, new costumes are still redos. But I could be wrong

So my theme guesses would be Operation Galactic Storm or Abnett/Lanning Guardians

Either of these sound great! I always want X-themed waves but both those check enough boxes of the other stuff I collect that I'd be pleased. A few X-related characters mixed with other cool versions of mates we have.

O:GS would be great, but I do curse the day the mathematics took the New Warriors out of the running.

Based off the clues I think USAgent is the “Captain America”. Is a fairly popular ask for a re-do and along with Wonderman or Spider Woman could fit the “highly requested” redos clues and the storyline. If it’s Operation Galactic Storm I’d say something like:

USAgent - Crystal

Wonderman - Mockingbird

Black Knight - Hercules

BaF - Quasar or Lilandra

I'll modify my "highly requested re-dos" to "re-dos of characters that people have been asking for a re-do, even if they're not the exact costumes". Lots of movie versions, few comic versions.

and the theme had been discussed in this thread before I showed up. Not Spider-Man.

It will not be out in 2019. 78 will. 

Marvel Vehicles were not possible from day one. It has always been the realm of others.

Sounds like the Guardians of the Galaxy (maybe via an Annihilation theme) to me. That would be cool.

I agree, seems likely, with the "lots of movie versions" hint

Yeah I just can't get the maths right though. Redo's that are requested would be a comic Peter, Yondo, Gamora, Mantis, Drax and Warlock which could all be in the Annihilation story (or close enough) mixed with people like DarkHawk, Quasar, Lilandra and maybe finally my Vance Astro.

Guardians of the Galaxy would make a lot of sense, but the numbers seem off if movie and animated versions mean they've been made before.

Guardians and Black Panther are the only ones that come to mind when I think of movie characters with oly a few comic versions.

Ya, comic Guardians make the most sense to me. 

...but I wouldn't be surprised if it was modern comic Guardians.

Modern as in Abnett/Lanning? Bendis? Cates? Cates seems unlikely since that series just started this year, though it has some very enticing unmade characters

Darkhawk, Moondragon, and Quasar are my best guesses for the new characters. As for redos, it's some amalgam of a couple Guardians and maybe some cosmic villains we already have

I meant not classic Annihilation Wave like everyone seems to be pinning for. Bendis what was in my mind, though. F***ing Bendis.

It could be more broadly cosmic Marvel, meaning that it wouldn't be limited to just the Guardians (though I imagine Star-Lord is a lock). In that case you could get Quasar, Nova, Gladiator, Mar-Vell, Adam Warlock, Monark Starstalker... lots of possibilities.

I hope you are right but I have a feeling we will see GOTG Thing and Star Lord. As long as I get my Vance I will be ok. - as long as he isn’t the build a figure because that will totally piss me off.

The only redeeming thing about a Bendis wave would be Kitty Pryde w/ Star Lord costume, which could easily be a highly requested character that isn't the costume people have been asking for
