Storm Danger Room Sessions Request Thread

Who else is up for Storm to join the Danger Room Sessions line besides me? I know a few of you are. We're finally getting Rogue. That's minus one from my list. Erick has to make Storm. Get her flying or hovering somehow. I would love an alternate Blackbird base like from this scene.

But I know they'll stick with the Sentinel base which is cool. Perhaps next year we'll see Storm at SDCC.

Some reference images.

I love Erick's work and will probably pick up Brown Wolvie and Carnage because I don't have those yet--well I have Wolvie but not in brown--but there are already so many Storms out there.

I have been kind of bummed the last few characters Erick has picked. I was over the moon about Cyclops after his sneak. I wish his paint job especially his teeth didn't get ruined by that crappy factory.

Juggs, Psylocke, Rogue, now he is saying Iceman and Cable. These characters have all already been done so many times. Yes, I know, not by Erick, and not on a Sentinel base, I understand, and not everyone liked the Bowen Rogue, but the original Koto DRS Rogue was flying at least. This one looks more pinup as beautiful as it is, I think I will hang onto my Bowen Rogue that everyone hates.

My vote would be for Erick to tackle some popular characters that have never been done before. Jubilee, Shadowcat, blue Dazzler, Pyro, Avalanche, Blob, so many great untapped choices out there.

While I wouldnt mind a Storm...there are so many others I would rather see made before her: Iceman, Apocalypse, Jubilee, Cable, Jean Grey, Mr. Sinister and even a new Archangel sculpt in pink/blue.

Wish you luck though!

A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking.

I'd like to see a Storm. We're way overdue for a new take on her white costume from some company, and it might as well be Kotobukiya. The Bowen '90s Storm is fine, but Erick can easily top it.

Apocalypse will be peaking in popularity soon enough, with the next X-men movie and all. I hope Kotobukiya takes advantage of that.

Would like to see Storm join the series, followed by Jean, Iceman, Angel, Havok, Polaris, Nightcrawler and Prof X.

OP updated with reference pics.

I don't think Erick ever confirmed it. I can't remember. But when he started I got the feeling that he was attempting the whole of Jim Lee's X-Men #1 cover. Mixed with some of Capcom's X-Men Children of the Atom arcade fighter characters. Which itself was influenced by Lee. He's only a few hero characters away from completing the line up. Of course there are a bunch more bad guys. I would probably only want the Sentinel out of those. But I'm kind of curious what he could do with a Spiral sculpt.

1. Storm

2. Ice Man

3. Beast

4. Jean

5. Professor X

6. Spiral

7. Omega Red

8. Silver Samurai

9. Sentinel

Storm is my #1 pick as well, now that Rogue and Brown Wolverine are finding their way to our shelves! I like the idea of using the Blackbird as a base. Obviously, it can't be the whole jet but maybe a portion of it. I could see one of the vertical fins sticking out of the ground - implying that the Blackbird has been destroyed and buried in this Danger Room simulation. And then having Storm attach to it for a nice flying pose.

I feel your frustration man. We all have our "most wanted" lists, and it sucks when your choices aren't in sync with the vocal majority. You have to factor in buyers who never invested in Bowen. It's hard to fault them for requesting characters like Apocalypse or Sinister over the sentimental mainstays of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. I'm really hoping Bowen renews their contract to tap into the more 2nd and 3rd tier characters. Of the heroes you mentioned, Jubilee probably has the best shot at being made given her ties to the Blue Team.

Also, get that Cyclops repainted! The factory really dropped the ball on him. He was my favorite X-Man growing up and now he's my favorite Sosa statue thanks to Duke Fleed's amazing work.

Agreed. That 90's Storm was based off a Phase 1 design and, while fine for its time, Erick would have no trouble topping it. Storm's problem might be having too many awesome poses to choose from in picking a sculpt.
