Leokearon for pointing this one out to us!
Last year, Marvel released an exclusive Nick Fury figure to new subscribers to Marvel's Online Comics and to quote Marvel:
These little Marvel figures, roughly the same size as 80s G.I. Joe figures, are a big hit in the collector community, and now Marvel is letting the fans decide who the next figure should be. There are three choices for the possible upcoming character.
fans far and wide went bananas
The first is Archangel (pictured right) in his most recent costume, from the current volume of X-Force.
We've seen a few Angel figures in the past, but few Archangel figures, other than the Toy Biz one from the 90s, and the one from the canceled X-Men line in the early 00s. This would be the first version of this figure in this suit.
The second choice is Norman Osborn in his H.A.M.M.E.R. outfit (pictured left). To the best of my knowledge, this will be the first Osborn figure, aside from the numerous Green Goblin's that have come out in the past. Norman has gone through so many changes in the past two years that I'm not even sure if this is worth it.
The third (pictured right) and final choice is Moonstone in her Ms. Marvel outfit, a first for this character... pretending to be another character. This voting round seems to have a darker character element to it, maybe setting up possible "dark themes and stories" taking place in Marvel in the next couple of years.
What's one figure I think should have been made a long time ago? Stilt-Man! Make it a build-a-figure, I don't care. Just do it!
What figures do you guys want to see in an upcoming series? Who are you going to VOTE for?
