A general X-Wave would be nice, as always. We won't have had one of those since Wave 33 (excluding FC), right? With all of the bulking going on, I guess Colossus is due for a re-do (although I think the GSXM version is pretty perfect, even next to bulked up Thing and Juggernaut). Classicky X-Wave: brood army builder/Modern Colossus(Outback variant; Dazzler and Longshot; Banshee and Sunfire. Modern X/SWORD Wave: not sucky modern Beast (First Class boxset tie-in variant)/SWORD army builder; Armor (with bulk pieces in clear red for armor effect)/Ord; Agent Brand/Spider-Woman.

Like Groundhog said, we're also overdo for a Cap wave. The Brubaker run is terrific and full of potential.

Let me officially cast my vote AGAINST bulking up Colossus. Peter has usually been drawn as a big man, but not superhumanly large. His fight against Juggernaut out of costume comes to mind, where Peter looks smaller than Cain even without the oversized helmet. How about a redo of GSXM version, but with better boots? Heck, use the Ares/FA Doom shin guards and the original GSXM chest piece, that way you can remove both and have Outback Colossus.

I don't read tons of comics but I read that particular run as it happened, I couldn't wait for the TPBs because I was totally hooked...the best stuff that I have read for years & it was handled brilliantly. How on earth we haven't got the characters I listed (not for the first time either) beggars belief especially when we're getting so many lame ones lately .

I don't know how I missed your list when I posted, but that is exactly the potential I was talking about.

Re: Colossus, I should have been more clear. I do not want to see him fully bulked up either. My only problem with Colossus is that while the GSXM version holds up very well with the chest piece on, I think he looks a little too puny with it off. He shouldn't be as bulky as Hulk or Juggernaut, but he should also be more substantial than a vanilla mate. I hate the idea that with all of the other big characters being bigger minimates, Colossus would end up shorter than Wolverine or Havok. Good boots, a belt piece, a torso cover, and some wrist guantlet things I think would do the trick. Maybe. I don't know. I just know that the AXM Colossus is too little.

I'd be fine if they used a chest piece like on Hercules for him.

I agree that the X-Men still need some fun :)

Sunfire/Colossus

Dazzler/Longshot

Brood/Deathbird

Brood/Lilandra

Change Colossus for Banshee and it is perfect !

What he said. Or change Sunfire & Colossus for Banshee & Forge in the blue and yellows. (or black and golds, or however you inturpret the coloring of those standardised early 90's uniforms) I know, I want a classic Sunfire too, but since 616 Sunfire now looks like AoA Sunfire, (which was just a matter of time that I was surprised took as long as it did) I can wait a little longer on him.

Matt, had there been any exploration of how to pull off a Brood minimate while you were still at DST? I'm guessing it would be a similar construction to GB Terror Dog, maybe using the Salaak torso?

Just wondering whether it had even made it onto the discussion table...

I like the idea of X-Mates, but should we get all the b-level and rehashed X-heroes from the 80s and 90s before even getting important A-level (well, maybe not. . .) comic villains like Blob, Toad, Mastermind, Avalanche, Pyro, Destiny, Arcade, Mimic, Proteus, Black Tom Cassidy, and members of the Hellfire Club? Pshaw!

This is an excellent point. I wish that instead of going with a comic FC boxset to compliment the movie, DST had gone with an original Hellfire Club set: Shaw, Emma, Donald Pierce, and Harry Leland. I'd be waaaay more excited about that.

Me, too, but I doubt it would have sold very well (not that I think re-hashes of the X-Men are gonna sell very well in 4 pack where a key member is missing [see the X-Factor set], but. . .).

Well, Emma as White Queen already has a pretty good minimate. So, just for "marketability" replace her with sewage covered Wolverine since a lot of comics historians (better known as geeks with good memory) point to this storyline and Wolvie's sewer slaughter as the point when the little runt's popularity took off. I know, I know, we need another Wolverine like we need a hole in the head. So have a little fun and call him Mucked-Up Wolverine. Just a thought.

And considering Toad is still unmade from the long ago poster, calling him overdue is an understatement.

I am x-ed out. I need a couple of waves without x men. I know that is probably not going to happen especially with the success of XMFC. I was looking at the eaglemoss site and wish minimates would copy their choices.

I completely agree, especially when I thought TRU Wave 12 seems to be using Cap and Thor minimates from what I presume would be wave 42. Heck, I'm surprised we've not had a Spidey wave in a while.

I think we will be overloaded with Spidey in 2012. At least one movie wave with store exclusives and probably lots of comic Spidey as well.

We'll probably be seeing a modern Torment-Style Lizard in the Spidey waves around that time... Other than him, I don't know what is likely.

A Peter Parker that's niether emo nor Ulti-nerd would be nice. Probably at least one of the new movie costume's design as a given.

True, I forgot about the new movie.

At the risk of being shot I'd personally like to see the long over-due release/properly done versions of 2099 and Scarlet. They're two of my favourite costumes and both were a bit plain (though I have modified my Scarlet). Other than that maybe the new Ult costume?
