I'd love that first wave -- we need Gambit and I really want Jubilee too.
I just realized I put Storm in both waves! So lets make that second wave:
* Angel
* Northstar
* Aurora
* Abyss
* Mystique
* Dazzler
* Cannonball
BAF: Amazon
Why is there continually no Nightcrawler? He had his own book to a large extent!
...because Shut up thats why!

Nah thats a good point, I should have put him on there. Its actrually tricky balancing out getting both sides in roughly equal measure; right now we have lots of 'X-Men' but not a lot of Apocalypse forces, so I was trying to balance the scales. Also keep in an even number of female characters and the like.
OK, version 3:
* Quicksilver
* Havok
* Sinister
* Gambit
* Jubilee
* Storm
* Nightcrawler
BAF: Holocaust/Nemesis

… And if we get 2 waves...
* Bishop
* Northstar
* Aurora
* Abyss
* Mystique
* Dazzler
* Cannonball
BAF: Amazon

I got the wave in on Friday. Was able to mess around with them yesterday. When the first wave came out I was on the fence. But I bought it because I knew if a 2nd wave came out I would be kicking myself. I am glad I made that call. This is my favorite wave of the year now that I have it in hand. The colors really pop on all of them and they are a lot of fun to pose around with. They really compliment the first wave. My only real issue is Magneto head is to small but other then that solid wave. I hope they do a 3rd wave.

I suspect it will be my favorite wave of the year as well. Every figure looks above-average to exceptional.

I saw a side-by-side comparison video between the coincidentally recently-released Mafex AOA Magneto to this one and I agree, the head has some issues. I wasn't sure I wouldn't end up preferring the Legends version to the Mafex, but that side-by-side comparison inspired me to go ahead and pull the trigger on the Mafex.

For being a dystopian future, the Age of Apocalypse sure had some bright colors!

That second picture of Colossus and Kitty is bringing back some childhood trauma.

I'm super stoked to get these and am with others in already wanting a third wave - and at this point I'm happy for them to just commit to getting out as many characters as possible. I usually steer clear of non-616 versions of characters but getting a whole collection of them is an easy way to sway me. Unlike AoA I never really got into the 2099-verse, but I just know I'd crack if they did a whole wave of them...

Pictures all look great. Whose body did you use for Magneto's X-Men Omega bodysuit, I figured HOX Xavier would appear to scrawny?

I still want an accurate Blink / Morph / Iceman head, Blink most importantly.

Looks like the Retro Black Panther to me, but I can't say for sure.

This thread needs to be changed to "Continuing the Age of Apocalypse." The power of positive thinking, fellow mutants and flatscans.

Hey Sorry for the late reply work is crazy. yes the body was cloak. HOX Xavier was way to scrawny to work. I am hoping they actual make a final battle Magneto with the makeshift armor. Also I might pick up a 2nd Cloak to make into a AOA Bishop. Who for myself is my biggest want if they do a third wave. he was one of if not the main character of the whole story.

Blink and Morph I want redos. Blink I want a proper head but also a more accurate color scheme closer to the old toybiz figure ( brighter greens and more of a white skin tone). Morph I want to see on the Mr. Fantastic body with alternate stretched arms and yes better head sculpt and few other heads for different expressions. Also and this is a very deep cut and I am probably the only person that wants this but I would love a BAF of morph as the octopus from astoshing Xmen #3. I would also like him as a brick from issue #4. Iceman would also be nice to get a more accurate update. With a ice piece that you can replace his legs with.

I might need to pick up the Mafex version that is pretty sweet

Cool shot! Such fun and distinctive character designs for this story. They make for striking action figures. Getting Nemesis/Holocaust would really make the whole set look great.
