Build a character figures?

Recommended Posts

I know its been done a million time, but I was just brainstorming some ideas about large marvel characters that we need as build-a-character figures. Some of these guys might be to small or obscure but its fun to dream:

 

-Holocaust

-Annihilus

-Age of Apocalypse Sentinel

-Atlas

-Interloper (obscure, but cool, look him up)

-Nimrod

-Fing Fang Foom

-Shadow King (of some sort)

-Brood Queen

-Lockjaw... @hmmm@

-Deaths Head (minion)

Yeah, most of those are too small. I think Lockjaw, Shadow King, the Brood, and Nimrod would all translate really well into MS scale though.

DITTO!

 

I want something that closely resembles Waiting's mansion, though I'm SURE that it won't come close to the quality or detail.

 

Avengers mansion, or the War room, or the Xavier Institute grounds. I will NEVER understand wanting a Danger Room, because the normal danger room was just walls, wasn't it? They could create any setting and call it a danger room, and people would buy it, right? How about they make me a danger room that resembles the Avengers war room.

I'm not sold on the idea of build a playset. When you think about the amount of plastic used on a BAF, the same amount wouldn't get you very far on a playset. And we know there have been costing issues for Toybiz to even do the BAF thing lately. Jesse cited that as the reason for shrunken Onslaught and 10 pieces of Giant Man instead of just having duplicate parts with a couple figures like they did with Omega Red and Mystique in ML10.

We should have a BAF Professor X in Gladiator uniform (from Astral Plane).

 

What about a Mastermold? I push this a lot, and I know it would be nearly impossible to build this fig w/o a minimum of 12 figs.

 

It would cool to have some of these BAF released separate but w/ the same amount of articulation; I know they won't do it due to the economic genius behind the BAF being packaged with the fig, but I can dream...

-Holocaust - I thought he was only slightly taller than most humans (like 9 feet or so)?

-Annihilus - Same here. I thought he was like 7 or 8 feet tall if that.

-Age of Apocalypse Sentinel - this one is a must

-Nimrod - thought he was like Annhilus

-Fing Fang Foom - this guy would be like a celestial. It would take 3 series of 10 figures each to do him even the barest of justice @smilepunch@

-Shadow King (of some sort) - a definite must

-Lockjaw - he's about the right size, and if they did each leg, half the torso and his head each as one part, it might work. He's a big pup.

 

 

I'd add:

 

Mephisto (Romita form)

Surtur (awesome looking Thor villain) or a Frost Giant of Jotunheim

Shiva (adamantium-laced robot from Wolverine etc.) although he'd be small like Onslaught

Box (Madison Jeffries)

The Watcher

The In-Betweener, Eon, etc.

I would dearly love to see Surtur or the King of the Frost Giants (can't remember his name right now).

 

A Lockjaw or Fin Fang Foom would be the top two that I want, though.

 

And maybe an Ultimo. Yeah... I'd really like an Ultimo. From Tales of Suspense #76/77 in 1966.

 

Most of the BAF so far seem really X-Men-related, so I'm looking for others.

 

A Celestial or two would kick all kinds of ass.

Optimus Prime.

 

 

...What?

 

...

 

......He is a Marvel character.

 

...Okay, I'll escort myself out of the premises.

Only if his head comes packed with the ML Rom: Spaceknight figure! :)

 

I know it's impossible, but a wave of licensed characters who are actually part of the Marvel Universe could be pretty neat. We could get Godzilla as the BAF!!! @loll@

Now that's a sweet idea. And a ML figure of ROM is too good to hope for.

 

As someone else pointed out in another thread, one that I forgot was a Sentry BAF. The Kree robot.
