Hey, my fellow Plastic Addicts. Today we continue our look at all the characters revealed at the Pulse-Con panel but first I have updated the Moon Knight page with the new Fan Channel exclusive. I see people giving out that Hasbro is just re-releasing this, but the thing is this is going for 55$ on Ebay at the minimum and many people weren’t collecting at the time. Not only that but this follows the pattern of Hasbro re-releasing older figure to coincide with their Disney + series. We saw this with the Retro Falcon, Loki, Lady Loki, Scarlet Witch and White Vision as well as the Captain America MCU 2-pack and the MCU Winter Soldier set. So, expect them to do another She-Hulk, Hawkeye, Kate Bishop, and Ms. Marvel at some point in the future.
On to the new stuff starting with What If…? Gamora. I was reluctant to do this one as we haven’t had her proper episode in the series (which is set for the second series of what if next year). But given that she was in the last episode of the first series, I have enough info to make a page for her.
Next, we look at one of the mainstays of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants with Avalanche. I have the older version which I had to buy twice as the first one broke on me. However, I never liked that version as it was not a proper version of the comic character, with the toy being an original design for the toy, which is something Toybix did a lot during their days.
Finally, since we are getting a new Dark Phoenix, I skipped ahead to one of the ideas I had for a while and made a page for the Phoenix Force itself. I think I have gotten all the hosts for the Phoenix but there have ironically been more than just the X-men.
Next time we will finish the X-men Retro wave by looking at Spiral, start the 5-pack by looking at Stryfe, do the last (for now) Animated X-men line with Cartoon Cyclops and (hopefully) do the original version of Star-Lord.
