    I’d be willing to bet 100% a new Mystique is still coming.

    They probably pulled her from this pack because we were buying it for Destiny anyways, so why give us two demanded characters in one set?

    It has to be. Nobody is that unhinged over... *checks notes*... Death's Head? Who?





    Edit: Don't @ me, I know it's some british character that has like two appearances in Marvel proper.

    After seeing this it's definitely Kang, credit to whoever first posted it on Facebook. Hoping he comes with his time chair.

    Dammit. The BAF is the ONLY ONE in the ENTIRE WAVE I have any interest in.

    Feels weird to me that they interpreted the "Strange Tales" theme as "spooky" when it's mostly been "off-beat" in terms of publishing history.

    The big headliners in the comics were Nick Fury/SHIELD, Adam Warlock, Cloak and Dagger, Dr. Strange, and, briefly, Brother Voodoo.

    I was expecting some SHIELD and Starlin Warlock rep here. A Contessa and a Magus, at least.

    This is essentially over half X-Men characters and the other half includes guys like Hellstrom and Moon Knight, who I didn't expect, and Brother Voodoo repeating a modern costume.

    Actually, the most "retro" things here appear to be Blackheart, Lilith, and (I guess) Moon Knight.

    Looking at the photos again and seeing that the little heads are removeable, I might actually be in for the new movie Venom, just to have a figure to commemorate the film trilogy of all time.

    Yeah, agreed here. I was more expecting something related to Shield & Hydra and the characters you mentioned. Seems like they just wanted to do a "spooky" wave and grabbed the Strange Tales name off a shelf.

    That Bloodstorm looks awesome. I hope when Storm makes her MCU debut, her look is something like that.

    Also, that Rogue is the version from the 84 Secret Wars story, or very close to it. I wish it wasn’t a two pack.

    Two of seven = "over half"?

    Will definitely be getting destiny/rogue two pack, warlord professor x, deluxe phoenix, hellverine and bloodstorm.

    Some notes
    • Still super surprised that it’s a rogue and destiny two pack. I’m not too disappointed though since I have wanted a first appearance Rogue for sooooooo long. So still very happy!
    • Phoenix not being Rachel is disappointing but can’t deny she looks really good. Will still get her 100%. that stand looks amazing!
    • Warlord professor x being based on the interior color scheme is a bit surprising since I feel like the team usually goes for more comic cover faithfulness but I’ll still get him 100%. I need to complete this team.
    • Least excited for bloodstorm and hellverine but I’ve read the stories they were in and liked them decently enough so what the hell I’ll get these figures too

    Dracula is an X-Men character. He's barely appeared in any other context by comparison.

    Lilith is now an X-Men character?

    I mean if you ignore Blade and his own comic series, sure. Those 3 appearances in X-Men make him an X-Men character. By that logic, everyone is a Spider-Man character. :lol

    Is the Venom the same mold as before?

    @nacho well, you asked for it.
    I may be the other big Death's Head fan here, but simply for inclusion with my Doctor Who figures. I've got the "Infinites" version that Hasbro did many years ago along with a few Dapol figures, but I wouldn't mind a proper Marvel Legends scale version to hang out with my Character Options stuff.

    Although I think I manage to curb my enthusiasm a bit better than some others. He's definitely a "want", but I never expect to see Death's Head appear on a Monday livestream.

    Are they all going up for pre-order on the 20th, or just the wave? Only interested in Destiny myself.

    Cheers. I wondered, as after talking about Destiny and Rogue, he said they'd mention release dates later, but then only seemed to talk about the wave release.

    Yeah, all three appearances in 70 years. No doubt he's fought Blade, Dr Strange, or Ghost Rider infinitely more times. I don't know, I generally dislike the supernatural part of Marvel and avoid it like the plague. But the idea that a 19th century literature boogyman is pegged as an X-Men character is just false.

    Not entirely.

    It seems to be using the Knull 2pack version of the torso which had the plug holes in the back, this time used for his head fellas.

    Odd choice to re-do Brother Voodoo in the same look considering the old one is still under current retail on eBay. Why not the classic one?

    Or why not just… Nightmare / Baron Mordo / anyone else?

    This is the Rogue I’ve been wanting for forever. Pop on the 97 head and you get her finale look.

    Destiny looks sooo good too. Still hoping it come with more accessories than they showed but I won’t hold out hope for an alt head or crossbow

    The phoenix base stand looks immaculate! Need it so bad
