Dream Waves: 80's Squadron Supreme



It's been awhile, but welcome to another edition of Dream Waves, where I present my dream wave of Marvel Legends figures I'd love to see made.

Hopefully from someone from Hasbro reads these, 'cause that'd be awesome.

This time around I'm going with original Squadron Supreme from the 80's, as envisioned and created by Mark Gruenwald and Bob Hall.





Now there's two ways you can make these figures; one is to do it in a series of two box-sets with 6 figures each, or you distribute them in waves.

While the box-set idea would be a nice thing for collectors, you'd be forced to focus only on the original 12 members of the team, and be missing out on the other characters, not to mention the villains.

It makes sense if you have heroes, you have to have villains to go with 'em. And that's who I've included; their villains the Institute of Evil/Redeemers.


So waves it is.
Let's get to it.....

Squadron Supreme Wave 1:


1). Hyperion

Yes, there's already a Hyperion figure made, so I guess Hasbro could skip him, but otherwise I'd go with the masked version, or even the one with green goggles.

2). Power Princess

She's got a number of different looks to choose from, especially if you wanted to add in the Avengers Assemble TV show version too.

3). Doctor Spectrum


Two possible looks here, the first one, or the next one with a cape. Could also come with an unmasked head included.

4). The Whizzer 

Two looks available with this guy.

5). Nighthawk


6). Lamprey


7). Shape


BAF: Ape-X


Squadron Supreme Wave 2:


1). Nuke

2). Lady Lark

Two possible outfits here; earlier or later.

3). Arcanna

4). Blue Eagle

He's got a couple looks, so I'll include some options.

5). Amphibian 


6).  Haywire




7). Mink



BAF: Tom Thumb


Squadron Supreme Wave 3:

1). Golden/Black Archer 

Since there's two versions of this guy, you could go with either version; his original Golden Archer moniker, or the later Black Archer version.

2). Skrullian Skymaster


3). Thermite


4). Moonglow


5). Foxfire


6). Inertia


7). Remnant


BAF: Redstone


Whew, outside of including Pinball(which you could as an extra with some of his fellow teammates) that's all the good and bad guys integrally related to the Squadron Supreme universe.

I'll leave you and Hasbro with some custom made figures of the characters I just listed.




This is funny too though:

Dale, have you ever read Squadron Sinister? I read a bit of it from a free comic book day preview a couple years ago and liked it enough that I found a little bit more of the series online. All of which surprised me considering I was never into Squandron Supreme.

The Secret War Battleworld mini? Oh yes. I'm one issue off from owning the whole set. Love it!

not sure we're talking about the same thing here's the FCBD preview issue that introduced me to the Squadron Sinister try not to get distracted by all the cover variants you'll find the clip art toward the bottom of the page https://comicvine.gamespot.com/articles/exclusive-preview-squadron-sinister-1/1100-152563/

Yeah it's the same one. I have 3 out of 4 of these. Love Pacheo's art here.

agreed, the art work was solid and as you can see i found the story intriguing.
