Okay, we'll probably know in three weeks, but we're in serious need of stuff to talk about.

My guess: Attuma

Image

My reasoning: Thus far, Hasbro hasn't gone very big with BAFs. Sadly the days of Galactus and the Sentinal are behind us. Still, Terrax and Zola were welcome additions to the line, making up with diversity what they may lack in size. Attuma would probably be Terrax sized and use some of those parts, and fills a needed niche of the first Namor baddie in the line (not counting Doom, who's pretty much everybody's foe in the MU). He would continue the rather eclectic nature of the line since it came back (Klaw, Drax, and Hope?).

Plus, he greatly needs an update from his 90's figure (the only one he's had).

What's you guess and why?

I thought when they teased the image of Stryfe, that was going to be our wave 3 BAF. He fits your criteria as a smaller BAF too. I'd actually rather Attuma.

How about Bi-beast. They have done him once before and they have shown a prototype of one before... So he is on Hasbros radar.

I wouldn't be sad if it was Bi-Beast.

I would be a little sad if it was Stryfe, though.

Stryfe and Attuma are interesting picks for me, but I'm pretty much out of the line. I thought about getting some of the BAF off of eBay, but I'm already scratching my head on where things are going to go in my house.

I would love to get Atuma,.. I would rather see Stryfe for a more X-men related wave

Thanos. I don't want it to be Thanos as I like the DST version, but that's my guess.

I think it will be an X- Figure as well..

I'm hoping/ not hoping for Strong Guy (as I dont want to have to buy the whole wave)
Maybe they will do something goofy like Juggernaut Colossus...

I thought about Strong Guy as well.

Thanos is a good choice, especially with the Avengers movie, but the Marvel Select one from a few years back is so good that I almost feel it would be redundant.

Ditto that.

I have no idea who I would want as the BAF for Wave 3.

it really is a wide open field nowadays. the choices are no longer limited to supersized characters. stryfe would be my guess too now that i'm reminded of previous reports of upcoming figures. it's such an ugly design. big shiny blades. ugh.

My guess is no BAF for this wave.

Best Arnold voice: It's not attuma! Bwahahaha. Come on, it had to be done.

I'm thinking it could be Stryfe though. Like someone else said, they've already teased him.

On the one hand, I'd be disappointed if they gave up on the BAF so soon.

On the other, I'd be able to avoid a lot of figures I don't want (like Punisher/Blade and Deadpool).

Yeah and please understand, I wasn't trying to be mean or anything but that is what I just heard to be rumored. I would love that same Blade but in the MU line.
