This is a new thread, because I only want discussion of what we need or want in the future. Any commentary on the figures or actual ToyBiz plans should go in the other thread. I'm not taking into account any rumors.
That said, here's my list of Marvel Legends we need:
Emma Frost: I'm not the biggest White Queen fan in the world, but her prominent role as an X-(Wo)man over the past few years makes her a glaring omission from the line. Why X-23 and no Emma? That does not make sense. I only know of one costume she's ever had, so no choice there.
Forge: Probably not the first character to come to mind when you think "Legend," but Forge would be an amazing figure, if done right. I'd opt for the paramiltary getup from the early 90s.
Archangel (blue skin, metal wings): Meh. They can release 1st Appearance figures, and they can change him back to human in the comics. But the definitive Warren Worthington III has blue skin and razor-sharp wings with a (homicidal) mind of their own as a result of his stint as Death in Apocalypse's Four Horsemen.
Banshee: Just another of the X-Men who needs to be made. Banshee would be cooler in plastic than on the comic page.
Jubilee: Come on. You all knew there was no way I'd list Marvel Legends we need and not include Jubilation. This would definitely have to be the classic "Robin" outfit (red top, yellow trenchcoat, green shorts, and huge earrings). She should have interchangeable heads, one with shades and one without. Or, as much as it pains me to say this about a character I'd definitely want all versions of, variants with different heads. I'm just afraid removable shades would not look right. Sparky effects could be a decent pack-in, but not necessary. And, for once, this figure should actually look like a teenaged Chinese girl instead of a middle-aged white midget with spiked hair.
Shatterstar: I ain't got no love for Liefeld, but this particular character just screams action figure. Same for. . .
Domino: A mutant chick with guns and knives. Another obvious action figure choice, especially if we already got Dumbpool.
Cannonball: Not sure how they'd pull off his mutant power (maybe a base that he snaps into), but Cannonball's the only former member of X-Force who was worth anything, so he should've been made long before Cable and Deadpool.
Nova: However they pull off Cannonball's power, use the same effect for Nova.
Quicksilver: Magneto's super-fast son and longtime Avenger. Nothing really super-great about him, just that he's rather important.
Havok: We have a lot of costume choices for Havok, so I wouldn't mind more than one. Personally, I prefer the X-Factor costume, but the one with the weird headgear is more iconic.
Xorn: Sure, he was revealed to be Magneto in disguise, but this was one of the greatest character designs in recent memory.
Strong Guy: Strong Guy rules. Accept it, and you will live a happier life.
Sauron: A freaking pterodactyl man. How we've had twelve waves and not gotten the freaking pterodactly man is completely beyond me. He seems more obvious than Iron Man #10.
Death's Head: One of the coolest looking minor characters in Marvel history, an interstellar robot bounty hunter who looks sort of like a stylized skeleton in armor. It just has to be the original, though. The Death's Head II design was way over the top.
Doom 2099: The only 2099 character I'd want, and another excuse to make another Doom. Basically Doom in updated armor.
Machine Man: Another of my favorites. Obscure, but are you saying Marvel Legends have to truly be legendary? I'd go with either Kirby's work or Barry Windsor-Smith's. Probably Kirby's, since he looks a lot like a Sentinel and the Sentinel figure appears to be based on Windsor-Smith's work.
Night Thrasher: Yes, an urban skateboarder in battle armor is downright stupid. But this could be another Wonder
Man: lame character, awesome figure. In fact, he seems like he'd have been obvious for the Legendary Riders wave, especially since he already has a battle-armored skateboard.
Movie Kingpin: About the only remaining movie character that absolutely has to be done. He'd be an incredibly well-made figure of Michael Clarke Duncan. In other words, about as cool as a bear wearing Hulk gloves. And since I've brought that up. . .
Kingpin: What? One of the single most important villains in the Marvel Universe, and somehow they made an action figure of War Machine first? This needs to be corrected immediately. I'd go so far as to say he's the single most necessary Marvel Legends figure of all.
Shadowcat: For Wolverine's other sidekick, I'd say the somewhat dated, but iconic, costume from the 80s, possibly with variants for masked and unmasked. Lockheed as a pack-in is an absolute must.
Beast (feline): About the only re-do of Beast that seems to make any sense. Unless you want "Disproportionate Man," from the early X-Men issues.
Darkhawk: Continuing ToyBiz's somewhat odd obsession with early 90s characters, Darkhawk screams action figure more than any other. Even more than Sleepwalker, who kicks butt but probably shouldn't be made into a figure just yet.
Luke Cage: Sweet Christmas! Luke should be dressed in the black leather he's worn for about ten years. Of course, a variant should exist that ships in equal numbers. A new head sculpt, some slight retooling over the entire power, and some garish paint: Voila! Luke Cage in his role as Power Man, the greatest blaxploitation superhero of all time! Either way, Iron Fist needs a friend.
Thanos: We have him in Marvel Select, but an affordable version would be nice.
Mephisto: True, it'd be a figure of the devil. But Mephisto is a really important villain, so he's another glaring hole in the series.
Warlock: A random-looking shapeshifting robot. Wow. This would be freaking sweet. But Warlock is not to be confused with. . .
Adam Warlock: Not my favorite, and not a remarkable design. But, hey, the guy is more important than Vengeance.
Psylocke: A scantilly-clad mutant ninja. I'd take her over X-23 any day. In fact, I've already considered customizing that X-23 POS into Psylocke.
Mandarin: What, a billion Iron Man figures and no figure of Iron Man's greatest foe?
Doctor Octopus (Armani Suit): The character is a popular one, so a resculpt isn't unwarranted. Basically, Doc Ock as drawn by Erik Larsen. He looks much more sinister in an impeccable white suit than in green spandex.
Puck: Alpha Flight sucks (sorry, jjreason), but Sasquatch needs a friend and Puck is the coolest.
Circuit Breaker: My ultimate dark horse nomination. She appeared in the Marvel Transformers series, which could pose a problem in terms of what comic to include. However, for the cardback her origin could just refer to Shockwave as a "giant robot," and I'd be fine with even omitting the comic book in this case. Every TF geek in the world would want her.
Uatu the Watcher: He seems to be the most obvious gestalt. True, he never does anything, but he looks really cool not doing it!
Fin Fang Foom: Not human, but an awesome character. Gestalt's the only way we'll get him. Ever.
ToyBiz is going to continue churning out Wolvie figures, like it or not, so I'd like to see some of these thrown in the mix for later waves:
James Howlett (Wolverine circa 1870): Just a guy in period clothing. . . with bone claws.
Age of Apocalypse Wolverine: I (for one) hated the storyline, but the design of a battle-armored Wolvie missing a hand is really cool.
X-Men Uniform Wolverine: Self explanatory, as seen on the cover of Uncanny X-Men #275.
"Albert": A robotic duplicate of Wolvie (from a classic Larry Hama story arc), sent to kill him. Albert quickly changed his mind and started rebuilding his body when it was repeatedly trashed, so soon he looked like a Wolverine Borg. He'd have to come with Elsie Dee, preferably the entire character with removable head, or just the head alone.
