Hell yeah, I loved the Slingers #0 that came in Wizard Magazine, IIRC. I collected all 4 when they were made in Heroclix, and I'll be hella happy to collect them as Legends as well. Especially Ricochet, he's my favorite.

I'd be down for some Slingers! It's funny, most everyone and their grandma got awful new costumes in the '90s, but somehow Spider-Man managed to pick up 4 decent-to-good ones during his Identity Crisis phase! (Though admittedly Ricochet's is very nineties, but it manages to go so far that it wraps back around to me liking it.)

Looks like Hornet's the only one whose costume is getting an update, and even then, only barely. An alternate head would get you 90% of the way there, which would be close enough for me.

I really want a Ricochet, a big fan of the look.

Eh... I mean, I'd buy them, but they're not on my "want" radar.

Being the exceptionally talented person I am, I was out wandering around at sunset, bouncing ideas around in my head, when I was stung by an obvious thought. We don’t have any Slingers.

Let’s rectify that problem, hm Hasbro?




(See what I did there?)

So I totally missed this Spidey era, as I gave up reading the books after the Clone Saga ended. (I actually like the Clone Saga for the most part. It just felt like a natural jumping-off point.)

Didn’t pick them up again until a few years before Civil War. I’ve gone back and read plenty of stuff I missed, but never felt the urge to with the Slingers stuff.

Even so, there’s always more room for more Spideys on my shelf.

Yes! A team that can be done in a wave or box set.

Hell yeah I want the Slingers! Cool designs, and most of them went on to have their own respectable careers as d-list characters that pop up every few years. Exactly the kind of thing I look for in this line.

Yes! Cool character designs. Prodigy was in a few books during and after Civil War, so I am most familiar with him.

Besides Toei Spider-Man, these are my biggest ML wants. Great designs. I dug the comics back when they were released. Still got them!

I'm down for some Slingers. I feel like they're some cool alternate Spidey costumes that we're really lacking. Dusk and Ricochet would be the ones that don't eat up as much budget as Prodigy and Hornet. I don't think any of these guys even got figures during the ToyBiz days. It was cool when Dusk and Prodigy showed up in "Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro".

I've been advocating for Slingers figures in Legends since way, way back. I loved that comic. I love the character designs. I'm down and ready for Slingers - box set, retro cards, baf wave - I don't care just gimme, gimme, gimme.
