    Armor needs more than that, I'd like a 12", a double-pack, or at least a deluxe.

    Watch her be the new HasLab.

    It'd be a fully poseable transparent red plastic figure with the chest openable to put the Armor figure inside and come with swappable heads and arm parts for the various versions of her armors.
    Of course throw in some other X-Men characters to sweeten things like Rockslide, Pixie, Surge, Elixir, etc...

    That would be the best way to do it, but I don't think the demand is there to justify the effort and cost. I would love to be proven wrong, I just don't see it happening.

    We're way overdue for Pixie, I think the Wasp wings would be good enough.

    She was one of the initial non X-Men character designs shown off for the show a few years ago along with Valerie Cooper, Mr Sinister, Sebastian Shaw and Calisto. She's also been in some of the Phoenix Saga related flashback scenes in the intro.

    Huh. I was just thinking...

    Do you think the Rogue/Magneto stuff is a fakeout and the real twist will be Scott running away from Jean's whole weird situation into Emma's arms?

    I did forget about the flashback scene, but I'll stick with the villain being Mr. Sinister as the baddie from the next wave. Again, I base that on how often he has been mentioned and his influence thus far.

    Personally, I'd want to see Beast soon. I'm sure it will hurt my rating or algorithm with BBTS, but I'll happily cancel my pre-order in order to purchase him.

    I don't think the character NAME is a spoiler since I think she's new but I could definitely see Abscissa getting a figure in an X-Men 97 wave.

    Considering Beau de mayo the ex showrunner of 97 has gone on record being vehemently against scemma… i doubt they’d go that route (this season anyway. thank god he’s gone) but who knows

    Forgive me if this has been said but, I wanted to throw into the animation talk. In an interview with New Rockstars on YouTube, one of the directors or producers of X-Men97 said that the sentinels were digitally modeled in the show so they always have the correct size compared to the normal sized characters. He was saying the sentinels in the original show tended to be drawn bigger or smaller for every scene and doing them digitally in this show keeps them at a constant size.

    I hope Hasbro re-release Wave 1 again.
    Wolverine, Rogue, Bishop and Gambit are gone and scalpers are making a living on Wolverine.

    We still have Wave 3 up in the air.
    - Beast
    - Morph
    - Jubilee
    - Sinister
    - Sunspot
    - Forge?

    I hope not.
    I'm a huge fan of Scott and I freaking hated his relationship with Emma in the comics. I'd especially hate it if they used it as an excuse to hook Jean up with that overrated idiot Logan instead.

    Also no Iron Man wave on the leaked list, so anything is possible.

    Wolverine and Rogue have been gone for months, but BBTS still has Bishop and Gambit. Amazon still had Gambit and Bishop on March 31. Bishop actually was $17.47 but said he was temporarily out of stock, but I was able to order him.

    BBTS punishes you somehow for canceling Pre-orders? I was unaware of any rating system whatsoever on their site. I have had to cancel pre-orders from them when I have found figures elsewhere while still waiting for BBTS to fulfill longstanding pre-orders. I have used them as sort of a "safety net" when I didn't establish an order elsewhere.

    Some people claim they do, but I've never seen any real evidence of it in my own experience.

    Same. I've cancelled pre-orders before cause I actually ended up finding the toys in stores before BBTS got them.
    (Right now I have three Transformers pre-orders with them: Gears, Swoop, and the Autobot 5-pack)

    From all I've heard about it, you have to be a serial canceller to land on that list. Not my MO, not my problem.

    Anyway, I think, in the long run, it'll be wave two that people really need reissued. Wave one just barely brushed retail here but it was pushed hard everywhere online. We also need a wave three but it seems like Hasbro only likes to do two waves at most for a specific theme. If your character doesn't make the cut, you wait for something like an MCU anniversary, or a misfit box set, or a BAF in some other themed wave. On the outside chance they surprise me, that third wave needs Jubilee, Beast, and Morph (with his 90s and blank heads) at a minimum. Sunspot would make sense too, left field choices would be Trask and Gyrich in a Pulse box set.
