A certain character I continually pitch just happened to debut in Iron Man #54 - albeit in a different costume color scheme, so she's technically an Iron Man character, right? Right? :D :D :D

…then they can release her 18 months later in her iconic green costume as part of an Avengers retro wave. :D

I kid, but I would set the bar low in terms of expectations. If we get one or two new to the line characters, or even characters in a completely different look compared to what we’ve seen before, we’ll be doing good. I think the previously mentioned modular Iron Man in red and yellow is a lot closer to what we can expect than Crimson Dynamo or Titanium Man.

This version of Mandarin seems like a long shot:

That's MY Mandarin. I don't think he's ever had a good costume, but this is what he wore during my peak Marvel reading age.

I'm also not optimistic, but fingers crossed.

I support these scantily clad male characters.

I want 90's Swimsuit Special beach thong Colossus, Gambit, and Wolverine!

And I’d also like a comic based Hulkbuster along the lines of the original ToyBiz. Instead of a massive behemoth, I love the look of the smaller Hulkbuster armor which is more of an additional layer of super-armor. It was never originally intended for a fully armored Iron Man to fit inside it like some kind of mechsuit or whatever you’d call it.
I’d love Stingray and a classic 90s Hulkbuster Armor. We haven’t gotten the classic comic Hulkbuster in figure form since Toy Biz ML 11. Been a long time. I still love that figure, but it’s fragile. The Hasbro versions of course have been MCU, and the Marvel Select version was more like the Extremis drone version of Hulkbuster.

And yeah, it was more like extra armor pieces on top of the Modular Armor.

Thanks for those pics. That illustrates exactly what I’m talking about. Sure, I love the giant Hulkbuster as seen in the movies, but that old ToyBiz figure was always a favorite. And there’s something so cool about seeing Iron Man adding on each additional piece of armor in preparation for a drawn out slugfest with the Hulk.

And Stingray is both visually striking as well as long overdue.

Stingray is one of my most wanted non-X-Men figures in the entire line, and the same goes for Crimson Dynamo Mark 4 and Mark 5.

Add in Mandarin, Blacklash, Madame Masque, Extremis Iron Man, Count Nefaria, and Graviton, and I'd buy the entire wave.

Big wave, but that would be an incredible lineup!

Also, I know Iron Man's supporting cast is no where near as popular as Spider-Man's but shit I would LOVE Pepper and Beth Cabe
Because we’ve been waiting on you! We all know your love of the Fraction/ Larroca era.

But seriously, I don’t think Hasbro will give us a normal Pepper so a comic Rescue with Pepper head im way okay with.

And keep Stingray out of my Iron Man retro wave. He’s on the list but under guys like Firebrand, Melter, and Unicorn

It would be a lot of fun to get Unicorn in Legends. Especially now that he’s showing up in modern Iron Man comics again.

We all know you’re a man of culture.


So when it comes to Mandy I think when we get him it’ll be even money between a version of his animated form and his robed look.
Image
Honestly, this works for me if I can ditch the cape and shoulder pads. Hopefully the shoulder pads would be attached to the cape making removal as easy as popping the cape off.

Image
I want a robed Mandarin but I also don’t. It’s a classic look but I also want Mandarin to be more than just a statue.

I have no faith that a cloth robed mandarin will ever get made.

That's my preferred look for mandarin, but it requires a lil work. Has Hasbro done any cloth that has multiple colors, or designs on em?

My 2nd preferred look is that Genghis Khan look.

I would want either the animated costume for Mandarin or the green armored look he has from the Enter the Mandarin comic. Kind of like the 4” figure.

The robes are fine as a costume but would kill articulation, and Mandarin is a martial arts master. He needs super articulation and range of motion.

Ohh yeah! Scratch what I said, I'd completely forgotten about that green armor. I want that above all.

If Hasbro released 90's Modular Hulkbuster as a deluxe, I swear I would buy 2. Do it Hasbro!
