I prefer Josten's brown outfit for sure, though I probably wouldn't hunt down a whole BAF wave to build him. With a bunch of them released recently, the Thunderbolts could definitely use this guy to bolster their ranks.

I'd get him. He needs to be as big as possible so no to a BAF. He needs to be a deluxe figure the size of Surtur.

Fun idea for a thread. I’d love to get a BAF or deluxe figure of Atlas! Also Goliath.

And that armor for Mach-X (?) looks amazing, too!

I'd take Atlas if he was done right. Like was said above, he needs to be Surtur height at least.

Definitely in for Atlas. Given his significance over the years as Power Man, Goliath, and Atlas (maybe not so much as Smuggler) it's kinda hard to believe we've never gotten any figures whatsoever of Erik Josten. Hasbro should really fix that. His Atlas and Goliath identities are must-haves.

I like the more colorful costume to build the Thunderbolts team. Hasbro sure is taking its time releasing them, aren’t they.
I’d reserve the brown & yellow combo for his villainous persona.

Cool topic, Beamish.

There isn't anything I wouldn't do for a proper BaF Atlas. In his original Thunderbolts look. I want that team complete and on my shelf NOW. They've been teasing it since the Toy Box days. Come on.

I'm pretty sure Atla can grow bigger than any other person in the Marvel Universe. I think he'd need to be at least 20 to 22 inches. The old Toy Biz Giant Man was like 14 inches, Atlas needs to be bigger in my opinion. I think he grew to over 200 feet in Thunderbolts 1.

Remember Thunderbolts #1? The last time the comic industry could do a twist ending before calling a newspaper first? Such a good book that still hold's up.

This guy could've easily been done by now as a BaF.

Classic Tbolts really seem to have lost steam. Atlas would be a great way to pick up some momentum again. I think deluxe format would be preferred. I think they gotta make a solid human proportioned giant base figure. Plenty of other growing dudes to make. Start with Josten.

I think if they do atlas he'll be part of a box set with a rerelease of some of the members we got already and fixer.

A T-bolts boxset would be great. As much as I'd hate to buy re-dos, Citizen V to me should be purple, not blue.

Heck yes to Atlas, and bonus points if he shrugs!!

Count me among those hoping for a deluxe sized figure for “giant men”. Even if it has to be Fan Channel only.

As for Josten: definitely Atlas to go with our growing Thunderbolts roster. But also Goliath to go with the MoE Hasbro that will take much longer to trickle out.
