I know we all have lists-- In the vein of Secret Wars- I think it should be an event (and something longer than 6 issues)-- since I figure we need at least 3 waves out of it-- here are my 2- you can either be general or specific (only stipulation is your characters have to be in those comic runs somewhere..
Maximum Carnage 14 Issues
Scorpion/Cardiac (Spiderman Unlimited #1- had backstories in it :D )
Carnage/Shriek
Cloak/Dagger
Spider-Man/ Carrion
Venom/Nightwatch
Black Cat/ Doppleganger
Battle Damaged Spidey/JJJ
Thunderstrike/Sersi
Captain America/ Morbius
Venom (Eddie Brock Head)/Firestar
Demogoblin/Battle Damaged Black Cat
Battle Damaged Captain America/Molten Man
Iron Fist/Deathlok
Carnage (Cletus Head)/Mary Jane

My other vote - X-Cutioners Song (12 Issues)-- of course in this one I know you would probably have to shift some out for heavy hitters-- but its my wave. :D

Jubilee/Strong Guy
Stryfe/Forearm
Cyclops (Jim Lee)/ Cannonball
Mr. Sinister/ Boom Boom
Beast/Feral
Rogue/ Wolfsbane
Caliban/Bishop
Storm (JL)/Sunspot
Jean Grey (JL)/ Shatterstar
Psylocke/ Rictor
Havok (Blue Jacket)/Polaris

Did we have something like this last year?

But in any case:

Operation Galactic Storm (19 issues)

Black Knight/Crystal
USAgent/Tigra
Space Armor Iron Man/Ronan the Accuser
Quasar/Imperial Guard member (don't know all the names)
Wonder Man/Another Imp Guard member
Captain America/Star Force member
Bearded Thor/Star Force member
Sersi/White Vision
Deathbird/Normal Size Wasp
Starfox/Imp Guard member
Living Lightning/Star Force member
Captain Marvel/Scarlet Witch
Hercules/Imp Guard member

Each 2-pack includes a BAF piece for a Supreme Intelligence!

:mrgreen:

From a strictly personal POV, I'd like this one:

Armor Wars (7 issues)

Beetle/Stilt Man
Stingray/Force
Spymaster/Ant man (Scott Lang)
Mauler/Controller
Mandroid 2-pack
Raider 2-pack
Neo-Classic Iron Man/Firepower

I would say any from Realm of Kings, War of Kings, Annihilation and Annihilation Conquest.

Although I am liking the Operation Galactic Storm.

Ooh, ooh, I wanna play :D!

Dark Phoenix Saga (9 issues)

Colossus/Kitty Pryde
Nightcrawler/Dazzler
White Queen/Phoenix
Sebastian Shaw/Black Queen
Wolverine/Hellfire Club soldier
Cyclops/Mastermind
Angel/Lilandra
Beast/Gladiator

It's a shame it's only a 9 issue arc (it's arguably one of the best in Marvel's history), because I had to leave out several Shi'ar Imperial guard:

Smasher
Warstar
Starbolt
Oracle
Earthquake
Hussar
Manta

Also there's founding Hellfire Club members:

Leland
Pierce

It'd be hard to include any of them at the expense of some of the major players. Although most of my comic packs would be repeats, that's what Hasbro wants, and it's probably what would sell best.

Dark Pheonix Saga would be my all time high too and I think many others. I'm especially interested in the Hellfire Club and the Imperial Guard. The Black and White Queen's done right, as someone pointed out to me recently, would turn some parents heads I think :(

Mine would be the X-men/New Mutants in Asgard. This was actually a cross with annuals and within both series. Hel, Loki, The Warriors Three, Rachel Summers, Warlock, all great figs that would be useful in many lines. Plus, there could be numerous versions of some in Asguardian garb (Mirage as a Valkerie, Storm as the thunder godess, others in armor). And there was another series with Alpha Flight where they were all imbued with godlike powers and battled eachother. I loved these series when I was younger immensly. However, I can see that much of the figs are being made in the Thor film version line so I don't see it happening, at least not to the extent I'd like.

Ultimately I would love an Age of Apocalypse line-- however I would prefer to get regular versions of the characters before Hasbro starts that path (however that would be a way to keep a few main characters in circulation- while still giving them new looks).

I really like those comic packs, Spenser. Especially the ones with Squadron Supreme. They don't seem to get much love. Your packs would cover most of the Avengers that haven't been represented thus far in MU. The only ones off the top of my head that would still be missing are:

Photon
Jack of Hearts
Triathlon
Black Knight
Tigra
Quasar

As an Avengers fan who felt a lot of sour grapes in the 90's when Toybiz was making just about every X-man character possible, I'm pretty pleased at how well the Avengers have been represented by MU.

It's kinda sad how far the X-books have fallen . . .

Spenser I would go for either one of those Comic Pack runs, they have a lot of stuff in there I could use.

I really have no fondness for the Guardians of the Galaxy but when I read the first post about an "event", "The Korvac Saga" was the first thing to spring to mind.

The Celestial Madonna Saga (10 issues)
1. Kang & Iron Man
2. Mantis & Swordsman
3. Immortus & Hawkeye
4. Wonder Man & Baron Zemo
5. Frankenstein's Monster & Golden Age Human Torch
6. Scarlet Witch & Vision
7. Titanium Man & Crimson Dynamo
8. Pharaoh Rama Tut & Captain America
9. Libra & Ultron-5
10. Radioactive Man & Thor

6. Scarlet Witch & Vision
7. Titanium Man & Crimson Dynamo
8. Pharaoh Rama Tut & Captain America
9. Libra & Ultron-5
10. Radioactive Man & Thor

I have no clue about this SAGA, however the figures from here I would get are the following, so I am going to repack the figures for comic run sake.

Kang & Immortus (Basically a full on Bad Guy Comic Pack)
Mantis & Swordsman
Baron Zemo (Was he in old style costume or his newer one) & Vision (As long as it isn't the clear one)
Frankenstein's Monster (Hell yeah) & Pharaoh Rama-Tut (This would be your Monster Comic Pack)
Ultron-5 & Radioactive Man

It's fine Spenser not liking Guardians of the Galaxy, I know I don't like anything other than a few straight Marvel Characters (About 150 characters which compared to what they have in Characters is only a few really), my preferences are for Magical/Horror Based Characters and Cosmic Characters (Hence the reason I love Guardians of the Galaxy and Starjammers both old and new).

The old-style from his appearances in AVENGERS #9 and the like.

The reason that I didn't pack two "all new" figures in my "event packs" is because I was going with the premise that stores want to see "name" characters in packs, hence my repeated use of Cap, Iron Man, Thor, etc. If I wasn't going to use them I would have more character choices but they would probably be peg warmers.

DC vs Marvel

Batman/Captain America
Shazam/Thor
Superman/Hulk
Wonder Woman/Storm
Robin/Jubilee
Catwoman/Elektra
Flash/Quicksilver
Lobo/Wolverine
Aquaman/Namor
Green Lantern/Silver Surfer
Superboy/Spiderman

Think it was a 4 issue series so it doesn't fit and it will never happen but one can wish :) Would love to see DC characters in the hasbro type format.
