I actually prefer 90s Banshee, instead. lol

As do I! But I know 70s Banshee is the more requested look, and one fans have been begging to get for years now. So if someone were concocting a wishlist of popular picks, I just think that's the one they'd use, not the training suit version.

Ditto a character like Vertigo getting made before a much more popular and hotly requested character like Destiny or Avalanche. It's the sort of move we've seen in this line time and time again, but not really one I'd put if I were just making up a list of pie in the sky wants.
You do realize, that Vertigo is going to be repainted, 100% reuse? That’s why she’s being made before other more desirable characters

The leaked list is so great that it does seem too good to be true. Just goes to show how many awesome characters and versions of characters that are left to do in Marvel Legends. The reactions to the leaks have been extremely positive for the most part.

For "Super-Articulated" Black Widow -- is it 70s jumpsuit Natasha? Anything else I can pass on.

Agreed.
This is the Widow I want - 1970's big hair, turtleneck zipper chain, disc belt with the cartridges on the back.
Colan, Perez, Buscema, Romita
My brothers hand-me-down comics - Avengers #173 is the first comic book I ever read and this is the image of Natasha I will always associate her with. This also explains my desire to complete The Korvac Saga cast.

Paul Harding Studios did an art piece of her last year as part of his 1970's series - maybe he sculpted this figure.

I'm totally on board for this Black Widow. Perhaps they can put her on the Shriek body with a new upper torso piece. They can include all of the Widow's Bite effect pieces from the Grey Widow figure, and maybe include some guns and alternate hands. As for an alternate head, perhaps they can include a Frank Cho Mighty Avengers Black Widow head?

Image

I'd buy a few.

I would still buy an improved Gene Colan looking Black Widow to replace my cobbled together one in my SHIELD section mostly to get the zipper and pin texture and improved articulation. I would go for a Frank Miller short hair / grey suit / no jacket version for the DD corner of my shelf.

Well they have to shift away from spidey retro and give it a break some time... we've still only gotten 1 xmen retro wave
This X-Man Retro Wave has been going on for like three years now, no? :lol:
Plus now we have the VHS line which is sort of an extension, just cel-shaded.

Hopefully 90s Banshee (which is the one I want most) will start the ball rolling on 70s Banshee along with Gen-X and AOA which I also want of him.

... or not

We've only gotten one retro wave, with just a few small single releases sprinkled in

Based on Rek's video, here is what's catching my eye - as a classic Bronze Age collector:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtWuG_DHr-A

In order of the Comic figs discussed:

1. Photon / Dr Doom Secret Wars 2pack
2. Super Adaptoid / Cap 2pack
3. Thor / Destroyer 2pack
4. Baron von Strucker, Molecule Man, Safari jacket Wonder Man - maybe Black Widow
5. Hyperion / Dr Spectrum 2pack
6. Corsair
7. 60th Anniversary Deluxe Blob
8. Outback Rogue

That's four 2packs, about 5-6 normal releases, and 1 Deluxe Blob

13-14 figs and 1 deluxe. That's roughly what I get in a year, so not too shabby.

We're all on the same page to confirm Outback Rogue is :

and not:

I wholeheartedly want both, moreso the 80's above, but I've seen online confusion. If true and accurate to description, it should be the bodysuit.

One is the amalgamation of accessories Rogue wore in the 80's over a single black bodysuit.

One is a full on bodysuit that Rogue exclusively wore in the "Outback" era.

Generally, it would be considered the tighter form outfit refers to "Outback Rogue", wheras the accessoried version is "Mutant Massacre Rogue" or "80's Rogue".

As I said, there's been some uncertainty online.

I'd consider it the latter, to pair with Armored Psylocke and the single thunderbolt, leather suited Storm (precursor to the 90's look).

Now that's a 3-pack I would buy in a heartbeat. I would, and do, buy any Storm though.
