Makes sense. And with them now owning Knowhere, it feels like they're taking their roles more seriously rather than only being guns-for-hire.
That's a good point. In fact, I'll go a step a further and say that they're likely officially recognized peacekeepers like the Nova Corps so I guess uniforms make sense.

Not to be the negative Nelly... I would love an Ayeesha figure and I really hope we see one but with Frigga and Romanda being passed over I'm not holding my breath unless she suits up for action. Which would be biter sweet because I'd love her in the all gold gown from vol 2.

Well, that's why we'll never get her - Hasbro can't afford that much gold paint!

Looks like Kraglin is getting demoted - he's not in any of the hero GOTG group shots except for the poster. I wonder if that hurts his chances. But I am also hoping for a non-fin head.

He was listed in the wave in that 2023 leak but I guess that could have been made up.

Ayesha (who may be in Vol. 3 for all I know).
She is. Debicki's name appears in the trailer.

I'd love an Ayesha figure. Her look in GotG Vol 2 is amazing.

A 6’3 gold space babe? Looks like a job for McFarlane Gold Label!

So you want her 8'3 with an alternate head only available as an exclusive?

Ha! There's too many females on the main team, McFarlane would never make it to Ayeesha. Doesn't he only do like 1 female every 50 Batmans?

No. I heard action figures of female characters turn boys into serial killers, or gay, or both, or something.

So it turns them into the stars of Ryan Murphy shows?

Points to the Gold Label crack. Ayeesha is one figure McFarlane could do better than Hasbro. :)

I'll never get over McFarlane killing the Walking Dead line 2 characters shy of having the entire cast of the first four seasons. Which ultimately kinda killed the show for me too. It was a hand in hand kinda thing.

I can admit he has put out some real works of art. He's kinda like that ex I say I'm over but secretly still stock online.

Lori and who else was missing? I agree - that was a very odd decision.

I'll pick up a McFarlane DC figure when I see it for the first time - but then when I see the proportions up close I just can't. The sculpts are lovely and I really like their effect pieces (trying to figure out who the new Shazam! power effects would work on), but YIKES.

Ayeesha would be the only one he'd do right. :)

Lori and Rosita. You could count Tara and Father Gabriel too but Rosita completes the trio and Lori completes the OG cast.

I'm all for more Debicki screen time. She is really good in the MCU.

Not to turn this into a Walking Dead Thread, but that's been one of my biggest gripes looking at my collection. Rosita especially, since she was an important part not only of the group, but that trio with Abe and Eugene. The completionist in me sees those two and weeps because the trio is incomplete. I remember seeing a 3D model for her ages ago, and I think it was rumored to be fan made, but I don't know if it was ever confirmed. And if I remember, she just barely lost the fan vote to Beth, who I could have easily done without a figure of. Regardless, she's my biggest bummer from the series. Just one more wave, or one or two more exclusives, and I'd be a lot happier.

Anywho, somewhat tying it back to theme, yeah, as much as I'd love Ayesha, unless she plays a really big role and gets in on the action, I wouldn't expect to see her. Maaaybe for whatever the next equivalent of the Infinity Saga wave ends up being, but even then, there are many others before her.
