They could make Vertigo, if they go for more of The Animated Series style, with a Jean as Marvel Girl body, albeit with a new skirt overlay piece and head. I'm sure they'll go for the easy repaint, but I'm fine with that, too.

I sure do hope she comes in her comic leotard...and that her hair is white with light green highlights. Chic and classic!

As for the training uniforms, do you think they'll both come at the same time? I hope so.

Which characters do you think will get new head sculpts? I can see them doing a lot of reuse but I hope at least Banshee, Psylocke and Storm get new head sculpts. Jubilee, Forge and the second Gambit are fine sculpt for me. (could the short haired Black Widow head work for Ororo though? I like that sculpt...)



What do you guys we'll be seeing later today? I'm hoping for Rogue, Cyclops, Emma, Corsair, Monet and the training uniform sets at least as X-Men goes.

I am so happy the leaks were true... the training uniform figures are looking fantastic so far! Wolverine, Banshee and Storm look absolutely Jim Lee'y and gorgeous ! Super excited that they'll do Psylocke justice. Can't wait to see her!

I'm interested to see how they plan to do Jubilee. New teen female body? The old Spider-Girl body with new legs and arms?

I really wanted to see a fan channel Black Queen with accurate colors instead of a negative version of the White Queen. Like with details. Plus, people that have two heads and one from the sdcc pack could display both.

We probably are going to get an alternate version of one or maybe two of the figures of the retro line and it might be Phoenix and Multiple Man. He had a blue variant in that suit. I think it's unnecessary, but I wouldn't be surprised. I wouldn't mind seeing 2 Phoenix variants. A white and a green version.

I've been wanting it for a while. Make it a 2 pk, I don't care, so long as Iceman is done well. That said, I think the RYV Peter Parker head would make for a decent depowered Bobby.

I would like a new powered up Iceman too. I don't feel like they've ever managed to nail the paint. The Retro one is okay but seems to be missing something that I can't quite put my finger on.

i hope that the 60th anniversary inspires more X-movie figures. Would love to get a Deadpool 2 Colossus, a Days of Future Past Wolverine, any Storm, any Cyclops, any Rogue, Nightcrawler, X-Men 1 Sabertooth... really I'd take anyone.

Shocked at how good the ML Animated Series Cyclops looks. I've already got the Mafex version, which I still consider superior, but this new Animated Series version actually looks really good for a Hasbro offering. I was surprisingly tempted to place a pre order, but I haven't bought a ML figure since the Logan and Charles 2 pack.

Hope so! And fully pinless too!
