Title: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: fishmilkshake on December 17, 2011, 01:56:39 am
Here's Wave 2 in full. Thoughts?

Fantomex

James 'Bucky' Barnes - Captain America

My thoughts....

Fantomex
Other than this is his X-Force costume he looks great. I think I'll touch up mine to his traditional white look.

Bucky Cap
Other than the weird shoulder joints he looks good. I like the metallic blue too. Still, this is an unnecessary figure for me. I have a regular Cap and I have a Winter Soldier.

Thunderball
He looks great, but the shoulders on the buck look like they could use some tweaking.

Spidey
Wasted slot for me, but I understand the need for the Ironspidervine representation for sales.

Madame Masque
She looks good and the buck is better than the DCUC one. The buck still doesn't have that DCD sexiness though.

Drax
I love this interpretation of the character. Something is off about the proportions though. I can see a DCUC torso making this figure perfect.

Daken
I think this version snuck in before Daken got his own costume. He looks good, but I prefer the mask-less look.

Arnim Zola
Absolutely perfect!

Viper
Jeez I hope they can keep that sculpt intact for the final product as she's a hottie. Why isn't she scarred though?

My resolve not to collect this new line is being tested!

I'm quite liking Fantomex, Bucky and Daken, while Drax, Viper and Zola will be home runs if they look like they do in prototype.

I'm not liking Madam Masque's expressionless face. One of my biggest bug-bears with the original Legends was the blank looks on most of the women's faces - not again! Madam Masque has usually been shown with some degree of expression coming through the mask:

It can really kill a figure for me.

Thunderball looks like a pinhead sniffing a fart. Dodgy headsculpt there.

Fantomex, like FMS wrote will have to be fixed up a little. Bucky Cap,Drax,Daken (unmasked), Armin Zola are the stand outs though. I hope the Wrecking Crew are not going to a nightmare to collect!!!

Ditto. I don't particularly care for the main guys (Spiderman, Cap, and Wolverine), but the ladies, wrecking crew AND that BAF are making me rethink skipping out entirely.

Can't wait to see what Wave 3 has in store (Executioner please, please)

What I'm liking is that there's not too much old ground being covered. It feels like this will compliment an existing Legends collection character selection-wise. That's a smart, collector-friendly move.  [thumbs up]

Yeah, it's making me nervous that we haven't had a new Hulk, etc.

They've been very clever in that they've reissued Cap, but as Bucky. They've reissued Wolverine in Daken. Clever choices.

Post by: Stars on December 17, 2011, 09:20:22 pm
Huh...

Fantomex
Ok, I guess. Never been a fan, so I guess he's OK, but not a MUST for me.

Bucky Cap
I'll be getting this one!

Thunderball
REALLY sick of the Hulkling buck. Not really interested, as I have never really been a Wreckers fan.

Spidey
Looks good, but I'm sick of that damn modified Bullseye buck.

Madame Masque
I like the look of this one!

Drax
He just looks weird and a bit of on proportions.

Daken
I like him, but again it's that damn Bullseye buck!!! >:(

Arnim Zola
LOVE IT!!!!!

Piledriver
Hulkling buck again!!!!!! >:(

Variant Daken
I like this, so I guess I'll be getting both versions!!

Viper
Hey, If I can find her, I'll buy her!

Nice individual card work. Terrax seems to be flat and his bicep area looks weird, probably have to fix them myself.

I suppose it's good they are exploring the marvel universe but I don't think there is a single figure in 2 waves that interests me to any great extent


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: The_Donster on January 02, 2012, 01:19:22 pm
It is too bad they didn't throw Black Panther into it. With Klaw it would have made a bit more sense. I'm kind of digging this wave except for Ghost Rider. Still, at $15 bucks a pop I just don't know if I can get started on this series?


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: fishmilkshake on January 02, 2012, 05:49:39 pm
Booyah!

I think Terrax looks a little odd due to the stance with his elbows bent, etc. He looked fine when I saw him at SDCC.
Could have lived without another Iron Man, but it won't stop me from getting the whole wave.

I'm pleased, it soooo cool to see Legends again. I remember when I used to order waves off casefresh and when the BAF hit, my girls would help me put them together. They would then ask questions on who that guy was etc, they know too much about superheroes for 12 and 10 ;D

Depends on how big you want him to be? I'd just use the DCUC "Jemm" buck because it's pretty big.

Hah! Cool stuff NO!

I used to get mine from CaseFresh too. Except for Wave 5....and 7.....all those other waves that never made it to Oz

It's weird, I got wave 5 at retail in Oz at a local Toyworld. When I went to the checkout they didn't scan. The boss came over and charged me $9.99 each, needless to say one of the best days I have had as a collector.

I guess it depends on your point of view on price. Paying $16 a figure and having the great MikeS ship them cheaply from the US to me here in Oz is simply not an issue if the character selection in the wave is worth it.

Not to mention that retailers and fans want what made this line great in stores. Especially with the name recognition of the line to help. Trust me, as many folks going booooo on the BAF format, there will be twice as many asking for it. At least with it I can justify the price of the figure. I just have to see them before I can commit to them.

Yeah, I guess for me it's like getting a free figure and in the case of Terrax it's one I really want. If they didn't go the B.A.F format then what are the other options? Maybe drop the cost of per figure by $2? Dunno [dunno]

OK there is some since in what you guys are saying! Maybe I am being a little to anal but with all the different Marvel character you think others would be use! I like that Terrax is the BAF and Klaw is in there but how many times can you put out Thor, Capt., Iron Man and even Ghost Rider and Constrictor! It just a opinion !

Yep, you're spot on. They're gonna have to be careful I think.

I'm already annoyed at the series 2 "Big Time Spider-Man". No one wants the figure, but it's Spider-Man and an easy redeco. I'll get it simply because I want Arnim Zola. It's a clever strategy and it's working on me (as the DCUC C&C figures did too). I think we have to be prepared to get at least one of them in each wave much the way DCD and Mattel keep putting Batman and Superman up front with a lot of waves.

Well, at least that Ghost Rider and Constrictor haven't been released in ML scale and that Thor is basically the SDCC exclusive, right Shake? I'm seeing more originality in this line than I'm seeing in the DCU line at the moment. Maybe I'll jump off it and onto ML instead [think]

I believe the Ghost Rider was done in ML scale when Toy Biz was first doing it before Hasbro got the Marvel contact and started to do them. But still all the other were done in that scale and there is so much more in the Marvel grab bag to choose from! Now does this mean the end of Marvel Universe  [think]? Hope not!!!!

Post by: Scotty on January 09, 2012, 11:15:56 pm
Aw, dang it. I'm gonna have to buy these. Klaw and Constrictor are too good to pass up, and Terrax, although I agree he looks a bit weird, is a great addition.

Not sure what I think about the new cards though - not a big deal as I'll be opening them, but they look a bit busy or something.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: Stars on January 09, 2012, 11:40:35 pm
Actually there were 3 ML Ghost Riders (1 Dan Ketch, 1 Johhny Blaze and a Blaze "melting face" variant) and the GR movie line that was also ML style/scale.

And THAT is one to grow on!!!!!

"That" was the operative word PBJ. I can't remember which Ghost Rider this is(a little after my time in comics), but it isn't even close to the one Toybiz did. Not trying to bust your chops, but with the exception of Iron Man this wave is pretty fresh character wise. Not to mention finally getting a Black Widow that doesn't have the street walker feature on the neck. I definitely feel that once these start hitting DCU better step it up on their character selection or its going to be as extinct as the JLU line :-\

Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: Stars on January 10, 2012, 02:23:14 pm
No problem. See above.

The only 6" scale GR figures done by Hasbro were all the GR movie stuff. Although, they WERE using molds developed and designed by Toy Biz. The GR movie line was the first thing that Hasbro released when they acquired the Marvel license. It was almost instant, so the molds HAD been in development for some time by TB before the change to Hasbro. They had to be TB molds because Hasbro just didn't have the lead time from the acquisition to develop  the toys before the release only a few weeks after.

That reminds me, one day I need to take a Johnny Blaze "melting face" variant and put the regular head on it. I love the orange bike and blue threads....just not the face.

The 'new' Ghost Rider matches what's happening in the comics....though I would have preferred the female Ghost Rider.

I have no probs with Hope, Klaw and Constrictor.

Commander Rogers - I like the character and I like the figure, but this is a wasted slot for me. Steve = Cap, end of story. When I display figures, I prefer to display a universe. I'm not big on having 7 different Justice League's on display. I want my shelf to look like the characters are ready to take on Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet. So this slot could have gone to someone else but it's not a disappointing figure.

Ghost Rider - would have preferred the female one.

Iron Man - While I have my share of 6" Iron Man figs at least the Extremist armor fits in okay with Tony's armory. Though I'd have preferred a unique character


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: Stars on January 10, 2012, 03:20:10 pm
Constictor and Klaw are fine. Nice additions to the overall ML collection.

Steve - he's cool and I like the costume, so he gets a pass from me...barely. I'll get it.

Iron Man - ANOTHER ONE?!?!?!?! Wasted slot as far as I'm concerned. How about a new Ultron instead?

Hope - Ugh. Another "X-23" status figure. Not a legend by any means. Could have made a Polaris or Classic Storm if they wanted a X-Woman.

GR - He looks wicked, but I 'll have to wait to see him in person before I make a call on it.

Thor - Well, I've been trying to get the SDCC version for a decent price, but now I don't have to bother. I'll get this!

'cos it's not like you knew anyone there. I actually have a spare. But shipping would make it redundant I guess.

Agreed that there's heaps of females I'd have preferred, but at least she's a unique character.

My all female wave would be (not including reissues):

1. Titania
2. Polaris
3. Gamora
4. Misty Knight
5. Jocosta
6. Squirrel Girl (this would be a fun figure)
7. Marionette
B.A.F. Medusa

My TRU got these in.  No regular Iron Man, and the $18 tag will keep from getting full sets from TRU.  Picked up the villains.  Thor is pretty massive and looked great, but he doesn't come with a Terrax piece and I'm happy with my modern version from Marvel Select.

(http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h142/bigraj23/a45c4b17.jpg)


While I'm not a fan of the buck used on Constrictor, and don't like the hips on either figure, they've been utilized nicely here.  Klaw's right leg is a bit warped, and his sonic weapon isn't a perfect circle.  I can work on those with hot water.  Paint job is solid on both figures, and both have really nice head sculpts.  I wish Constrictor's cables had a bit of wiring in them to give them some poseablilty.  The joints on his figure are also pretty loose, especially the ab crunch.  Overall, I'd give them about a 6/10 each, considering the $18 price point at TRU.

Picked up the last 2 figures I needed to complete Terrax.  Don't care for Hope.  The figure is okay.  The eyes are nicely done, as is the tattered cape thingie.  Can't get the legs to straighten out and she looks a bit awkward in any pose.  She can't properly hold Forge's gun that's getting re-used.  Captain Stevie is much better.  He seems to be a little too tall.  Very strong head sculpt, although the head itself looks a tad large in certain poses.  Love the accessories.  The guns are nicely done, although one is slightly warped from the packaging.  The translucent shield looks different enough from Bucky Cap's and previous Captain America figures that it doesn't feel like I've got a million of the same extra.  Terrax is awesome, but not perfect.  Should have been at least 3/4" shorter with a bit more of a rocky appearance, especially since this is likely the only figure he's gonna get at this scale.  Still, it's hard to complain when he turned out this good.  I'm happy to have him.

Got my Wave 2 set today. Already had Masque and Thunderball, so I got Bucky Cap, FF Spidey, Drax, Unmasked Daken, Piledriver, Fantomex and Viper in the set today.

REALLY spiffy figures!

One problem though, the grade of palstic used on Fantomex's feet is horrible. It is too soft and doesn't want too support the figure for very long. To fix this, I used the ML Ultimate Wolvie from the Hasbro Wave 3 Blob series. I took off Wolvie's feet and popped them on Fantomex. I repainted the yellow straps black and bingo-bango-bongo, he's perfect. It took all of 5 minutes for the whole procedure.

Just a FYI for a DIY!

Don't get your hopes up. Viper got hit with the ugly stick between proto and delivery. It's hard to pick what's different. It seems like her paints are overdone. Particularly the lips and eyebrows.

I picked up Piledriver at Supanova Melbourne yesterday. I had already found Madame Hydra at retail, so I'm done with the variants / swap out figures I need for Wave 2.

Piledriver would be an outstanding figure for me if he wasn't so huge. Interestingly, I heard reviewers on another podcast talking about how much they were loving the Wrecking Crew figures BECAUSE they were do big, so there you do - scale really is in the eye of the beholder!

On their own, Piledriver and Thunderball are excellent. But it's when they stand in the collection and are as tall as Sasquatch you realise how out of scale they are. Should they really be that much bigger than Luke Cage....or Hercules?

The only good thing about wave one was the Terrax figure. Shame on marvel for putting in a Marvel Select figure. Thor out sizes everyone and that tiny ironman could be used as his pocket pistol. The scale for wave one just plain sucked. Wave two looks much better!!!!

That's what kept me from getting Thor in the first wave of the ML relaunch.  I've got several Thor figures already, and the MS Thor works for me as far as his modern look is concerned.  The ML version is larger than the MS.  It's ridiculous.  Piledriver is as tall/taller than many of the Hulk ML figures.  I'm only gonna buy the Wrecking Crew figures because I love the group and this is the only time ML will ever make them.

A summary of ML for 2013.

http://marvelousnews.com/index.php?catid=288&itemid=15409

2013 Wave 1 - Hit Monkey (Build-A-Figure)
- Ultimates Captain America
- X-Force Wolverine
- Iron Fist (White)
- Protector/Sentry (Variant)
- Hyperion
- Archangel/X-Force Archangel (Variant)
- Red She-Hulk/Lyra (Variant)

Looks like no B.A.F for me as I don't want most of those figures.  >:(

You know Shake, up until this point I thought I was the king of half empty. But now I bow to the true heir apparent [applause] I don't know if I'll necessarily buy all of them, but there are some I'm digging. My one complaint is why are they releasing the SDCC X-Force Archangel and Wolverine. BTW, is this Logan or whoever that other guy is and who the hell is Protector? I wonder how long before we see Psylocke? I'm kind of kicking myself for not having a friend pick that up for me. I can kind of understand they just released a Hope figure in the Terrax wave,  but I like her look here. Wonder if they'll ever re-do Scarlett Witch? Wouldn't mind seeing a new one, but I'm not sure how current she is in comics these days.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: fishmilkshake on October 13, 2012, 05:44:01 pm
Oh I'm a half-full guy when it comes to things like Hot Toys, Sideshow's Premium format lines, etc. But yes, when it comes to Matty and Hasbro's offerings it feels like a glass full of warm piss.

Hasbro show 3 figures at NYCC and they've all been done before. I'm not disputing that Black Panther and Hawkeye don't look good, but if we bow down and thank them for releasing updates of previously released characters who were done poorly we'll be here forever.

The Protector is No-vahrr or however you spell it. He's the Kree dude who was reintroduced as Marvel Boy and was getting around with the Avengers, etc. I have no problem with him as he's a unique figure who fits my universe building needs.

Scarlet Witch is now a mjor player again in MU. No doubt she'll get a new figure.

...and I'll keep waiting for The Enchantress, Polaris, Dazzler, Sif, Hela, Titania, Hellcat, etc, etc.

Marvel Legends 2013 - Series 01 - Set of 6

Estimated to Arrive: January 2013

This set is to include the following figures:

1x Ultimates Captain America
1x Hyperion (variant Sentry)
1x X-Force Wolverine
1x Protector
1x Archangel (variant X-Force Archangel)
1x Red She-Hulk (variant Lyra)

Interesting that retailers haven't mentioned the "Hit Monkey" B.A.F or the Iron Fist variant of the Protector.

The Wolverine is a kick in the nuts for collectors. A million Wolverines already and we get a version that's already been done. Why not Old Man Logan? (too expensive to tool I suppose)

I agree. Not sure that "2013 - Wave 1" is particularly clever, especially when they release just two waves per year. It's weird. Hasbro have never really referred to 'wave numbers'. It's always just been "Blob Wave". How do they even refer to the latest wave that doesn't even have a B.A.F?

Yeah, I placed my order for them.  If anyone interested, let me know!

Not very happy that a case of 8 will have 2 Captain Americas and 2 Wolverines.  Would have liked to see Hyperion or Archangel getting the 2x love.  I dream that one day Hasbro will do the solid packs of figures like Mattel....

My distributor didn't mention "Hit Monkey" either, but I thought I saw it somewhere....?

I had/having zero luck getting those Wave 3 variants, so not sure how these will pan out in terms of variants.

In terms of "2013 - Wave 1" that seems to be the Hasbro way of doing things.  I think Marvel Universe Wave 19 was something like "2012 - Wave 7" on the boxes.

Yes, it killed me this time.  Usually when I place my initial order I get the first release and by the time I actually get those in, I can then place a second order and end up with the variants.  This time I got in two shipments of the exact same thing.  Well, I knew there wasn't a guarantee I would get the variants, so it's my fault, but still.....

Good point. I remember the running changes with Thunderball/Piledriver didn't take this long. The fact that we haven't even seen Mirage or Blade protos for sale by Chinese sellers makes me wonder if they're ever going into production?

Yes, it killed me this time.  Usually when I place my initial order I get the first release and by the time I actually get those in, I can then place a second order and end up with the variants.  This time I got in two shipments of the exact same thing.  Well, I knew there wasn't a guarantee I would get the variants, so it's my fault, but still.....

I love it when toy companies look after their buyers.  >:(

Seems like a decent enuf fig. I wasn't sold on the metallic paint at first but they've somehow managed to make the pink work.
It's a shame the wings don't have a greater ranger of sideways movement. I like the idea of really stretching them out. Might have to see what I can do when mine arrives.

Thanks for posting.

OK, so did Hasbro do anything new except for paint compared to the old Toybiz one? I know the wings were funky on that one and was kind of hoping they had fixed that somehow.

I think in my opinion that the X-men Classics series 2,  Archangel is way better than the series 1 of X-men Classics.Most people got the series 1 and series 2 was harder to find.

  [hi5] Its a two in one figure if you got the series 1 steve rogers if you do a head swap as it is the same head scuplt.Best figure out of them all is Archangel followed by She Hulk and Hyperion or Wolvy.

Both Jean Grey figures look ordinary. Not interested in Hawkeye or Scarlet Spider. Bulldozer is the modern. Wrecker looks odd? Only figures I'm interested in are Rocket Raccoon and Black Panther and the latter only because the first one is shite.

I'm just hoping the Scarlet Spider isn't the one that's packed 2 per case, although it probably will be.  Really wish Hasbro would do solid packs of the figures like Mattel does (did) for DCUC....

Still no Silver Samurai to tie in with the movie as it has no trailer as of yet. I am  happy with that wolverine wave better than the new wave of ML coming out.

Thought people might be interested in seeing how the new "Hyperion buck" from Marvel Legends measures up.

Compared to Thunderball. I think I would have preferred the Wrecking Crew on this buck

Post by: fishmilkshake on March 13, 2013, 08:33:40 pm
I think the chances of seeing them at places like Walmart and TRU are long gone. Why would these guys order cases of figures that they've already sold? If Hasbro were smart they'd get the variants in cases with "All Star" type assortments.

I think this will be either via Chiense sellers or they'll show up at outlet stores when no retailer orders them.

I got the Cheetah and Wasp but it was recent (I did not collect when they were released) , so they were released late?

Thanks Don.

The way I see it, there's been a subsequent wave released since the "Blade" wave. This new wave also has variants that will ship later, so that means reorders for stores. Are the bricks and mortar stores really going to bother ordering revision cases from an old wave just to get 2 new figures on the shelf? I doubt it. But if they do, they better not have 1 or 2 Blade/Danni per case.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: The_Donster on April 04, 2013, 09:38:46 pm
Well, if it is any consolation the only place I saw the Mystique wave was at Wal Mart quite some time ago and I'm still seeing the old wave of ML in the local Targets. So there's still a good chance they'll show up at retail.

I found this intriguing :


http://news.toyark.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2013/01/Hyperion-marvel-legends-2013_1357403012.jpg
I think Sentry was the Original and Hyperion was the variant . I am assuming the first big picture is the original.

http://capeandcowlcollectibles.com/wp-content/themes/shopperpress/thumbs/marvel_legends_punisher_marvels_knights_series_3_hasbro_2012_carded.jpg

The Punisher is the original and Blade was the variant.Same as above

Thunderball.

That's how I understood them to be released.

Blade was definitely only ever the variant. What I don't understand is why Hyperion was released first?

I'll say it again. We'll never get Blade. Hasbro simply won't ship them now.

I am guessing, its the production cost as Sentry looks really detailed like Thor series 1 2012 in comparison to the others that were released. I think its the same as the others: the standard of She-Hulk (Red She-Hulk is a variant), Danni, Blade and etc.

Heh. To be fair, it's a better wave than the MArvel U line that's solicited for the same time frame...

Here's the MU wave in question -

1x Astonishing X-Men Wolverine
 1x Rhino
 2x Captain America
 1x Iron Spider-Man
 1x Red Hulk
 1x Thanos
 1x Ultimate Spider-Man
 1x X-Force Wolverine
 1x Punisher
 1x Hawkeye
 1x Nova

This one has nothing new, right?...although Thanos, Nova and Hawkeye will probably sell and maybe Ultimate Spider-Man if it's the Miles variant. There are a bunch more re-released figures I would have preferred over 2 Caps, Iron Spider-Man, and the Wolverines...but I imagine those are retail demanded figures.

Yeah, that's what's in a case.  Yep, they are showing July release.

Oh, when I meant solicitation I meant that's what I'll be ordering from my distributor, not that you would have to get a case from me.

I wish Hasbro would take a clue from Mattel and do the solid case thing for on-line retailers.

From Hasbro.com

Hello collectors, the wonderful staff at Hasbro have been working very closely with key focus groups consisting of assorted homeless people, performing poodles and random tumbleweeds to really get to the heart of what you, the fans, really want and make darn sure we do our very best to ignore them and do what we can to accommodate the needs of our shareholders.

Agreed. I asume that the Astonishing Wolvie was a big seller, though seriously we've had at least two round of X-Force Wolvie already. Unless we see pics of these that show them being different, I finally get to skip a whole wave of Marvel U...

I think its the figure that cost less look at Sentry in comparison to Hyperion and Blade to Punisher.

Who knows the Punisher might be a codename for Blade

While you're patiently waiting for your variants (that will never come out), check out how Hasbro have their finger on the pulse when it comes to being in touch with the characters they're releasing.

I present the "The Wrecker", billed as 6'3"

A really big improvement on the latest wave, just joints are a bit soft thus it could break easily. The paint scheme are better than other waves. The only bad figure is the Scarlet Spider.

At least he can go on the shelf as a legit figure.

I understand that figures like Bulldozer require new tooling, so that's why we don't see them on the shelf at the same time as the Wrecker, but why can't we get the paint variants? It was fun back in the day when ML were on shelves and you could find the variants at retail with the regular figs.

I am guessing, they were not given a sufficient budget for the Marvel Legends line in a business sense, wrong decisions by the CEO and poor sales team. They keep advertising stuff that keeps getting cancelled.

They could add Bulldozer and other variants by not making: Ultimate Cap, Punisher, and  Scarlet Spider (waste of production cost).I think they should stop making Marvel Universe toy-line (more costly due to the detailing of smaller figures) and concentrate on the ML.

From what I saw on the Star Wars:Black Series  on its detailing and features, this is the line they are concentrating on full-cost of production as they know, fans of all-ages would buy it.

I never got the chance to experience the Toybiz ML on Shelf as I never collected them at the time. I bought the collections of people , but from my experience in collecting the old Spawn figures, it was fun hunting those variants.

Even to this day, I still love Toybiz ....I regret not collecting of all them (movie lines) and other lines e.g. Ghost Rider and Lord of the Rings.

And I wholeheartedly disagree with you. The cost of completing a ML collection is immense for someone just starting. MU is not as high, though the number of figures has exploded. I also prefer MU because they cost less per figure, still do a passable job of representing characters, and take up much less space.

Saying they should end one over the other based on anything but the reasoning the business would use is never going to be a positive discussion for anyone involved. We may as well say that Hasbro should can all 3.75" lines and reinstate as 6", including Star Wars and GI Joe.

Torso pretty much just fell right off. Is that something common with Maestro figures, or did I just luck out and get a lemon?

You just had bad luck...Mine is solid but he is in a container somewhere. I would skip some of the previous molds e.g. Get the Face off Cap and Hulk to save you some money and space.

Mine is okay, but the quality does suffer a bit on some figs. I have my share of figures with broken joints because I tried to move stuck joints that just ended up breaking.
I have two series one Hulks and both broke at the neck joint.

Is there any tried and true method to separate BAFs once assembled?

This "set" I got had some boxed and others not. However Apocalypse has a loose lower torso. I figured no problem, b/c the variant Bishop (who was boxed) comes with a nicer lower torso that is not loose.

But hell if I know how to get the loose lower torso off. I tried heating it up, but that just made it hot. Snapped off a piece of knife in there as well.

This might upset you but there is a variant Apocalypse which is if you collect the variants and it will be the black version.

For future references on Giantman do not get the Kitty Pryde euro version as it will not fit in to the American version as well as the torso.

Biggest ML regret was "Legendary Riders". Instead of all those shit "Bike" accessories for people like Wonder Man and Scarlet Witch it was a waste of a B.A.F.

I used to be a real completest/must have everything but you can't...I regret selling my ultra-rare Mr Sinister for $10 as it was the last production line where they painted the neck white also my Black Panther (early production has a different color belt).

They should be exclusive in that they're released early at SDCC then later for the rest of us. They exist to make scalpers rich and nothing more.

I had already made my piece with not getting it. I would guess Cage and Ghost will eventually be released individually -- and we know Moonstone will be. As JQ mentioned elsewhere, this version of Satana was kinda bland compared to her more classic look. I mean sassy readhead in purple -- to greasy brunette in generic black outfit with a ridiculous red cape? Definite downgrade.

Just as well, I ended spending close to $200.00 on hardcover collection this month -- not to mention a new gas-powered hedge trimmers.

At this point, I have no idea what or when my next action figure purchase will be.

Getting Puck is gonna suck. I don't want any figure in that wave! Two out of the three figures needed to build him have variants, and I do have a completist friend who isn't gonna want two of him ... but who knows if they'll really get the variant situation worked out.

Has anyone seen this wave? They were in a shop in England a few weeks ago but I haven't seen any here in CA.

According to DCBS the Previews Exclusive Wolverine wave is not shipping until Oct 16th. I don't imagine you'll see them outside of your local Comic Shop or Specialty Store.

I'm in NorthCal these days and I rarely see anything decent in stores anymore anyway. HTS, Amazon and Ebay all the way for me.

This has to be one of the most ill-conceived waves of ML Hasbro has done so far.

...and then they go and make it a Previews exclusive.  [thumbs down]

So a bunch of do-overs, done-too-times to get one little Puck?  [banghead]

That Emma Frost is only  marginally better than the old one -- which is probably the worst figure ML ever featured -- other than Scarlet Witch. She looks like a crack whore. Sabre-Tooth looks good if you want another version of that character in a forgetable leotard. Cyclops and Logan look okay, but would have been nice to see Northstar and Aurora instead of Scott and Emma.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: fishmilkshake on October 08, 2013, 07:35:20 pm
Yeah, I def don't need another Sabretooth. The wave 5 one was great and the face-off one is awesome too.
I'd happily take the White Queen to replace the horror that we have now, but it's annoying because I really want that Rogue.

Cyclops and Wolverine can fuck off.

I'm pretty excited to get the new Cyclops.  Just for the updated body.  The first one they made wasn't very good.  So  [moon]

But you're right about Sabretooth.  He is my favorite Marvel character, and the first Toybiz figure is PERFECT!

I just don't want to keep spending money updating existing characters because the new one is better. Yeah, I'm sure the new one is good, but the other one will do me for now.

Sabretooth is a head scratcher because I love both the previous figures and atm have the face-off figure on display because that's such a great costume.

At this point, Hasbro is so inept at what they do, if they make anything I actually want, remake or not, I'm pretty happy. 

I wish they put Rogue instead of Sabertooth though.

Wasn't Rogue supposed to be part of this. And isn't she a character that was previously only released as part of a boxed set and in the short-lived Extreme X-Men red outfit? She should have been included -- over Emma. I'd only buy Emma as the White Queen -- even if they had to modify the outfit to make it store-friendly.

Rogue is a *snicker* running variant. Y'know....presuming Hasbro ever releases the running variants they've shown from their previous three waves.

Yep, we got Street Walker Rogue in the boxed set and the Extreme version (which is okay in a pinch, but hardly a costume anyone cares about).

An army-builder BAF should have been in an all army-builder or all-variant wave.

Is this a version of the Mandroid that's ever been seen before? Modern comics, or is it from the movie, or is it just a made-up one that re-uses the Iron Monger body?

Anyone else concerned that Hasbro is going to fuck us out of the last wave of ML?  I am.  No preorder yet, and its suppose to come out this year. 

Just add them to the every growing list of figures that worthless company has showed us that never make it out. 

I don't believe how bad they are. 


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread

Yeah. As far as I know the Boomerang figure shown at SDCC was supposed to be part of the Spider-Man line, but was not shown again at NYCC. Suspicious.

The Flash Thompson Venom is part of that "last" Marvel Legends wave. He probably comes with Jubilee's buttocks or whatnot.

There are a couple Marvel Legends waves due out this year, but you aren't supposed to put them up for sale until December 1.  They aren't even telling me what's in the waves but they sound to be Captain America and Spider-Man centered.

EDIT: Although I think I might have these confused with the 2014 releases for the movies...although for some reason it's showing as coming out in 2013 on my distributor's website.

Good points.

I really hope the G.o.t.G movie generates some love for them and the Inhumans. Maybe Thor 2 and Avengers 2 might get us some Sif, Warriors 3, Heimdall, etc?

Eternals would be a pipe-dream methinks.

Neat! Looking forward to it!

What are your thoughts on the fate of the line moving to "Character Legends" lines?

At least this prevents the line's death at retail. Seems like a good thing so long as they sneak in those comic themed characters along with movie figures. (and now that the Ultimate Comics line is dead, less to no Ultimate versions).

Although I wonder if they could pimp out a cartoon themed Legends line to retail. Not in looks mind you, but say an Agents of S.M.A.S.H. (Hulk Themed) or Assembled line (Avengers themed) of Legends styled folks. For example:

A-Bomb
Sauron
Blastarr
Mister Hyde
Indestructible Hulk
Zzzax
Devil Dinosaur BAF

There are quite a few folks in Assemble as well that could comprise a wave or two:
Iron Skull
Crappy Modern Frank Tieri Dracula
Attuma
Space Phantom
Ulik
Super-Adaptoid
The rest of Squadron Supreme
Molecule Man
The Blood Brothers

Depending on how they manage their prep-time, we could have not only a Guardians and Days of Future Past waves coming up for movies, but also a Fantastic Four wave, Big Hero Six, Age of Ultron (not the comic thank god), Ant-Man, Doctor Strange and more Spider-Man or Thor. Sounds more enticing than nothing at all.

Which character still needs an action figure?

I would love some Classic Guardians alongside any new school and movie stuff. Somebody mentioned how they'd crap their pants if next year's SDCC exclusive was a 7 figure set of the Classic Guardians of the Galaxy. I imagine you guys would be grumpy with exclusives, but I would be pretty excited about something like that. But I would settle for a single Vance Astro in the standard line.

Another team that probably has little to no hope unless it was a SDCC exclusive that I'd like to see is Avengers Academy.

Not sure if all of these will all fit the current regime dynamic, but here it goes:

1) Enchantress, Enchantress, Enchantress!!!!!  :) (Thor 3 Legends? Age of Ultron?)
2) A proper Comic Book Kurse BAF (Thor 3 Legends? Age of Ultron?)
3) Madcap (Hell if I know? I just needz him badly!)
4) Magik (DOFP?)
5) Silver Sable (Any Spider-Man movie line?)
6) Super-Thing (FF movie line?)
Along with Enchantress, anybody left from Secret Wars. ( I have this desire to have a Secret Wars reenactment Legends-style and I'm giving the benefit of the doubt that we will someday see BullDozer in some line.):
7) Mohawk Storm (DOFP?)
8) Captain Marvel Monica Rambeau (Age of Ultron?)
9) Molecule Man (Age of Ultron? Proposed Assemble line?)
10) Rogue (DOFP?)
11) Wasp (Age of Ultron?)
12) She-Hulk (Proposed Agents of S.M.A.S.H. line?)
13) Titania (Thor 3 Legends?)
14) Volcana (Thor 3 Legends?)

My other strange goal would be to get anyone and everyone associated with the George Perez Avengers poster.

Thoughts on character choices for possible upcoming lines:

Guardians of the Galaxy
Aside from the 7 original Guardians of the Galaxy...
Thanos (BAF?)
Gamora
Groot (BAF?)
Starlord
Moondragon
Mantis
Jack Flagg

Days of Future Past
Magik
Legion
Thunderbird
Gladiator
X-23 (X-Force style)
Iceman Mech (From Wolverine & The X-Men) BAF

Fantastic Four
FF Mister Fantastic
FF Invisible Woman
FF Thing

Big Hero Six
Silver Samurai
Sunfire

Doctor Strange
Masked Doctor Strange
Dormammu
Baron Mordo
Clea
Wong
Rintrah BAF


Who needs a redo?

A non-selfish choice for the good of all collectors would be Scarlet Witch on the Satanna body, maybe in the Age of Ultron line?

My selfish choices would be a Hasbro Legends Johnny Blaze Ghost Rider that looks more like the Universe figure than the Toy Biz Legends and a Hasbro Legends Silver Surfer that has the color scheme of the Universe 3-pack (i.e. not silver, but white with blue wash).

Who's your favourite figure of the line to date?

Hard to pick just one. Also, I'm not really considering anything I do not own myself (new or old). My Top Five To Date:

5) Redpool
4) Face-Off Hulk
3) Archangel
2) Hobgoblin
1) Thunder-Launch Thing

These all sound good -- and would definitely get me interested. Even though I'm reducing my collection, there is room for good 3rd string characters.

Classic X-Men and Legion franchises are the most important to me, so from ML I really need FA Sunfire, Thunderbird and Polaris.

Also want Thundra -- one of those great Marvel designs of the Bronze age.

I was talking with my buddy (who is a huge New Warriors fan) what he would like as a SDCC Exclusive for 2014 and the original New Warriors of course were brought up which reminded me of how much I would like a Firestar. I'd be happiest with a Guardians Vance Astro, but the New Warriors/Avengers versions would be welcome, too.

What are your thoughts on the fate of the line moving to "Character Legends" lines? Which character still needs an action figure? Who needs a redo? Who's your favourite figure of the line to date?

The word "Legends" is no longer applicable.  This is a line centered around the contemporary Marvel Universe with either a random bone like the Jim Lee Jean Gray being thrown out, or happy coincidences in the form of characters whose overall look has changed very little over the last 40 years.

...and that's okay.  They're good toys, and they make for a nice contemporary Marvel display.  I was initially frustrated with the relaunch, but once I started looking at it as a separate line focused on contemporary characters and looks, I started to really enjoy it.

Unfortunately, it was a failure of epic proportions at retail.  When remnants of the first wave are still hanging on the pegs at just about every store you go to and we're on the fifth wave, that's pretty telling.  On top of that, every wave from the third on has been an exercise in frustration for the fans as we haven't gotten half the figures we were supposed to.  The latest fiasco is the Wolverine Legends Diamond exclusive where every e-tailer is scalping Emma to cover the hit they're going to take on all of those 3x case Wolverines.

I think releasing the figures under the individual movie lines is a brilliant idea that will enable us to get something instead of the nothing we were looking at otherwise, but I wouldn't expect more than a handful of new figs a year, and only a couple of "never before made" characters out of that handful.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: fishmilkshake on October 27, 2013, 04:59:51 pm
The Jubilee wave would be a "Legends" wave as far as I'm concerned. Classic costume Blizzard and Batroc. Radioactive Man and TigerShark are huge wins too!

As for me, I think there's a bunch of teams that need some attention. The obvious lines include:

- Inhumans. Medusa, Karnak, Gorgon, etc. A lot of attention on these guys recently and the tie-in with Infinity makes them a logical choice
- Asgardians. Odin, Warriors Three, Sif, Balder, Heimdall. The new Thor movie followed up by Avengers 2 should help
- Avengers. An opportunity to capitalise on second tier characters like Jocasta, Dr Druid, Swordsman, Mantis, Rage, Starfox, etc
- Guardians of the Galaxy. In addition to any of the G.o.t.G, there's huge scope to add cosmic characters like Galactus' heralds, Jack of Hearts, Inbetweener, etc

Less likely to see from Hasbro, but teams I'd still love to see some attention given to:

- Alpha Flight. A leader, a dwarf and a giant orange teddy bear do not a team make.
- Eternals. In addition to Mantis, I'd be happy with Ikarus, Makkari, that reject fella Justin likes
- Squadron Supreme. Power Princess, Doc Spectrum, Nighthawk, etc

When remnants of the first wave are still hanging on the pegs at just about every store you go to and we're on the fifth wave, that's pretty telling. 

Why was Hasbro so hot to include Hope Summers in its reluanch?! I'm still seeing that shitty character (the figure was actually decent) at Wal-Marts, but couldn't even tell you if she's still relevant in any current X-comic. Meanwhile, I haven't see any Madame Masque figures -- a character who actually fits in with the Legends motif?

Also, while Thor and Ghost Rider looked very nice, the Wrecking Crew were all way too big and classic villains Klaw and Constrictor looked like they could have used some of them money that was spent on Thor and GR. A better buck would have made a huge difference.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: fishmilkshake on October 28, 2013, 03:56:07 pm
While I'm not thrilled at the bucks used for the Wrecking Crew and for Klaw/Constrictor, the figures were still decent enough. My biggest gripe is the need to include the variants that kids won't recognise such as the Spidey, Cap and Wolverine figs. How many kids in the aisle actually recognise "Big Time Spidey" enough to want it?

Team talk aside, there's a swag of 'solo' characters that need love too and high on my list would be Cloak & Dagger.

....don't even get me started on villain waves.

Well, the fact that we're getting classic Batroc (and not movie version) and Blizzard, etc, shows that someone still cares about the classics.

While I'm not thrilled at the bucks used for the Wrecking Crew and for Klaw/Constrictor, the figures were still decent enough.

But "decent enough" doesn't always cut it in today's economy. When you're fighting for shelf space -- you should be bringing your A game. You can't invest all your tooling in the figures that will sell out.

Post by: Non-Chick Magnet on October 29, 2013, 01:00:18 pm
You're right KC, but sadly, a lot of times it's "Decent Enough" or "nothing".  By that, I mean you kind of have to settle for what they offer, or just have empty shelf space, so to speak.  Would I rather have a Classic BOOMERANG?  Of course, but this is probably the only time BOOMERANG will ever be made.

Anyway, I'm certainly not arguing with you...it just comes down to what an individual is willing to accept.

If the number from the end of that has to do with the series
GGM MARVEL PLATINUM SERIES 6IN LEGENDS A7903 <-- this number

Then this is probably the lineup:
GGM STAR LORD A7904
GGM GAMORA A7905
GGM ROCKET A7906
GGM DRAX A7907
GGM NOVA A7908
GGM IRON MAN A7909

Not that we need another Iron Man, but I'd imagine this is his Space Armor from the Bendis run on Guardians of the Galaxy.

Maybe a good Nova Prime figure? But in all likelihood a movie-based figure or Sam Alexander...

Full list, maybe the two packs are Marvel Universe-like?

To sum up the horrible video:

Captain America Legends case pack out will give you at least one of each figure (Marvel Now Cap, Red Skull, Zemo, AIM Agent, Hydra Soldier).

Spider-Man Legends won't be so nice, but case pack outs still unannounced.  Still no final list of what will be included.

Marvel Legends variants that never made it out are scrapped, but they're hoping to find a way to release them. This includes Rogue and Phoenix Cyclops from Wolverine Legends (They have been tooled.)

Marvel Universe 3-Packs (Thor/Valkyrie/Executioner and Cyclops/Emma Frost/Colossus with Juggernaut Helmet) are scrapped, but they hope to put some of the figures out in single packs eventually.

I know I always fall back on this, but "remember when buying action figures was just easy?"

Scalpers for SuperHero figs didn't exist...you just walked into a department store, and shit was hanging on the pegs, easy peasy.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: derekwc on November 06, 2013, 09:25:12 pm
I don't think that time ever existed. Only that we were too young to be cognizant of them.

My Dad told me stories about how he and other dads would trade vintage Kenner Star Wars figures pre Internet so that I'd get the characters I wanted. I didn't know this until I was in my late twenties. That was the late 70s and early 80s. Plus I always remember Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes being a bitch to get. I saw the 3rd wave of Super Powers guys like once, and despite my best efforts a Cyborg could not be found. Mattel Secret Wars Hobgoblin was nowhere to be found on the west coast, but my Aunt back East got one for me.

When I was really cognizant of scalpers was with BTAS Bane. There were one in each case packout of rainbow candy colored Batman variants, and every time I found a new case opened and put on the store shelves, there was always some scalper walking away from the isle with the lone Bane.

What I remember is Kenner Stormtroopers and Bounty Hunters (late 70s, early 80s) being next to impossible to find, never finding Mego Catwoman, having to order Green Goblin out of a catalog because he couldn't be found and my mother driving me to the next county to buy the Teen Titans and the Wayne Foundation (mid to late 70s) :)

In a way, you're dead on Gard. You can't sell toys based on simply having a comic book.

The sad counterpoint to that is that comic characters have never been more popular. Unfortunately, no matter how great a concept is, if it's not being pushed it's not generating interest.

I find every single character I mentioned above to be better characters than the Avengers. I find them all to be more interesting, and I relate to them more.

Will everybody? No. But I think if they got half the attention/development that Deadpool gets, most fans would agree that they're all pretty cool.

I'd guess that within 10 years, maybe 5 -- you'll be able to have customized figures (more likely PVCs) produced using digital technology. Maybe you'll have to buy a pattern -- that way Marvel/DC makes cash -- and pretty much anyone with a digital printer will be able to pop out a figure.

But will anyone care by then?

Well, it seems to be just about done with us too, at least as far as comic accurate superhero action figures are concerned.

I get your frustration, though.  In 15 years of collecting action figures, I've never seen anything like what we've seen from both Hasbro and Mattel the past two years.  It's been a black comedy of errors, and I'm honestly glad it's just about over.

That's one of the things I love about collecting the new 6" Star Wars line.  It's so nice to collect a property that isn't treading water.  It's like spending your whole career playing for the Jaguars and then getting traded to the Patriots.

(For those outside of the US, just swap out Jaguars for your worst football club over the last 10 years and Patriots for your best.   ;))

The Wolverine Origins two-pack Wolverine looks nothing like Hugh Jackman. In fact, I keep thinking he looks like Tom Hiddleston.

Probably not. 

I was laughing heartily while reading the Marvelousnews article on the new Legends today.  I would buy just about all of them, and will be shocked....SHOCKED!....if even half of those actually make it out. 

Do you think it would work if I called Hasbro and asked to take over the company?  Or at least just the action figure department.  Sales would be higher than ever before in a matter of days!

He is ultimates Accurate in terms of being pure energy , he looks alot like the ultimate powered up electro, the character is still white in the ultimte comics if thats what you mean though.

Personally i'm fine with the casting, Jamie Fox is a great actor (love Django and Jarhead ) and its not like anything from the characters story denotes his need to be white (unless you go by the weird 90's cartoon were his father is red skull ) 

Personally i'm more worried about rhino being truck-o-saurs , but even then i'll wait to the movie to judge

Thanks Chooch. I don't know, the 6" action figure business just doesn't make sense to me anymore. Repaints aren't that big a deal to me but the unique variants at least should be but out asap. Also a bit disappointed that there isn't a movie Malekith figure available.

That's what we'd all like to know.  Seems like stores didn't order enough to justify the release of the variants, but you'd think they would have been produced what with the lead time needed.  And then how did they get orders to justify the next wave?  It's all bizarre and resulting in 20 or so figures not getting released in any fashion.

I think it's BS too.  If it were true, then all of those cases with the running change figures would be sitting in warehouses somewhere, and manufacturers don't leave cases of merchandise just sitting in warehouses.  If they can't move it to the biz box chains, they unload it to the discount chains.

Also, if any of them had actually been produced, they would have trickled out *somewhere*, even if it was just to a handful of Asian eBay sellers.

Hasbro royally screwed up by grossly overestimating demand for these figures, and they just don't want to admit it.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: derekwc on December 14, 2013, 03:55:49 pm
But then how is what fishmilkshake purported "lies"?

If Hasbro grossly overestimated demand, then there is not enough demand to release the running changes. Now maybe you're getting picky with the language, go into production versus release, but that's just nit-picky.

Unless there's some other "lies" within that concept.

Hasbro made the tools for the running changes, retailers don't want more cases as they probably have had too many Wave 1 and 2 cases as it is (evidenced by Klaw and Constrictor peg warmers).

I like picking nits.  It gives me something to do while I'm waiting for more boogers, zits, and earwax to form.

If this running change issue had only happened with the final retail wave, I could buy Hasbro's story.  My problem is that there weren't enough orders to produce the running changes for Wave 3, but there were enough to produce Wave 4?  There weren't enough orders to produce the running changes for Wave 4, but there were enough to produce Wave 5?  There weren't enough orders to produce the running changes for Wave 5, but Wave 6 was announced?

Hasbro spent the money to have all of the Wave 4 running changes tooled when the Wave 3 running changes weren't produced?  Hasbro spent the money to have all of the Wave 5 running changes tooled when the Wave 4 running changes weren't produced?

How do you do that and then blame it all on the retail orders?  It's kind of hard not to believe that there was a certain amount of incompetence at work here.

Post by: JerseyManiac! on December 15, 2013, 01:57:14 am
Listen folks.  The problem with variants can be traced to one absolutely bullshit decision that those assclowns made.  They fucking put WAVE 1 out again AFTER wave 2!  That's it!  How many of you saw wave 3 at a Target or Walmart?  I sure as shit didn't.  I got mine from Mike S, who ordered a SHIT LOAD of them hoping one of the cases would have the variants.  I'm sure many other comic stores and etailers did the same thing, and got fucked.  And like X said....if ANY of those were actually made, we would know about it. 

Anyone see wave 4 or 5 at Retail?  I saw some of wave 4 a few times but ONLY at TRU.  I have seen wave 5 exactly zero times in the wild.  Nothing at WM or Target.....why could that be?  CAUSE WAVE ONE IS STILL FUCKING THERE!!!!!!!!!!!  Why they showed us further variants for 4 and 5 knowing FULL WELL they weren't getting made is beyond me.  And blaming it on retail, when THEY were the assholes that filled the shelves with old figures that were GUARENTEED not to sell is outrageous.  Does anyone think if Target and WM knew they were getting old figures when they were ordering new stuff?  No fucking way!

The releasing of old shit is the fastest way to kill a line.  They did it with MU, proved it beyond a shadow of a doubt with ML, and now, starting with wave 3, will make sure the Black Han Solo will be readily available for the next 3 years, and assuring the very fast demise of the whole SW Black line. 

This is what Hasbro is now people.  They are a complete disgrace, and need to either fire whichever half witted fuck nut is make these decisions, or just go away.

It's weird. All the initial speculation was that this was the new Universe-style line. However, then the solicit and I think Midtown comics online site listed these as 6 inch Legends style. But people (other posters on various message boards) are insisting that they are 3.75ers.

You've got folks getting the Spidey and Cap waves on the East and West Coast (of the US) respectively, by getting Target to pull boxes from the back before the street date at $14.99 a piece. However, the SRP is supposed to be like Star Wars Black, $19.99. But to any standard buyer not in the know, they expect that a $14.99 price point indicates Legends style. I have to admit Universe figures @ $14.99 seems like a ridiculous price hike. But then the economy in general has been ridiculous for about 7 years now.

Would definitely pick up Grim Reaper at 6-inch, but being with Hyperion in the mix, this would appear to be the 3.75 scale. If they were going to do another 6-inch Hype this soon (didn't the first one only come out last year?), you'd think it would be the black costume version to tie in with Hickman's Avengers.

The IM accessory and the mini Wasp give it away as 3.75". We've had that accessory to death, and the mini Wasp is a repaint. The IM itself is a reissue, as is the Cap.

Wonder what the angle is here. The past couple Avengers waves haven't exactly filled me with excitement (Leader, and some costume updates are about it), so I'm intrigued by the concept of actually doing a lot of newer figures.

My wife bought me all the new Spidey and Cap Legends.  Reviews are as follows.

1.  Both Caps aren't nearly as good as the Face Off version.  But then again, what figure is?

2.  Hydra Soldier - fucking awesome!

3.  AIM Soldier - fucking awesome!

4.  Red Skull - not very good.  Movie versions are usually pretty shitty...this one is too.

5.  Baron Zemo - the second best figure Hasbro has made is recent memory.  Right behind the Black Boba Fett.  I have wanted this character forever, and the figure does not disappoint. 

Electro - movie crap

Spider-Man - decent

Superior Spider-Man - decent

Carnage - awesome

Black Cat - Seems a bit tall, but a really nice figure

Beetle - what version  is this?  Ultimate?  Its an alright figure, but I know this character in purple and green.

Goblin - Waste of a BAF.  It looks fine, but who the hell wanted this?

When Hasbro actually makes stuff, its pretty fucking good.  Shame that it will be 6 months before we see anything else from them.

And yes, that's the Ultimate Beetle. And no, nobody asked for Hulk-Goblin.

2 Targets and 1 Toys r Us with nada, despite the sitings. One other Target which I've designated the lucky Target was actually performing their reset when I arrived.

However, the only box they had was for 3 3/4ths Winter Soldier guys.
 
On the plus side, I did fine some XMC stuff at a fair price and a motorbike/figure set I'd never heard of before.

I wasn't all that impressed with Marvel Now Cap, at least when looking at the boxed figure.   I'm loving Black Cat, though.  Great build quality, especially for a female figure.

I should have my Cap villains sometime next week.

It's too bad Hasbro wasn't producing figures like this when they first got the license.

I really dig that Classic X-MEN set, but I can live with just the old TOY BIZ boxed set from some odd years ago.  Being an SDCC exclusive sure as hell won't make it cheap!

An X-FACTOR set might have been really cool.  Back when it was the original team, but with different costumes.  Man...I would kill a baby penguin for that version of BEAST.

I'd be fine without this. I'll still have to try to get it for a friend but since I only go one day now it's a real pain in the ass to jump through hoops for it. It's not the doing it that I mind, it's that I have to. They know it will sell so why not have enough available for anyone who wants to just walk up and buy it?

I'm pretty excited about it.  I've always wanted a set of original X-Men, and I never did get around to picking up the Toy Biz 5" set, so this is perfect...aside from the usual BS I'll have to go through to get it.

The Cap wave is up on Toys R Us dot com for $14.99 a piece.

Of course the Troop Builders are only available *snicker* at stores and not store pick-up.

But I'm guessing if someone just wanted to grab Zemo or Now Cap it could be for you.

Exactly.

If Hasbro wants sales, then ship army builder heavy assortments to comic shops and watch them sell.

Want sales, include Madrox in a wave.

Speaking of waves, where's the Jubilee wave that was supposed to be out before the Cap and Spidey Legends?

Good news is that I'll be getting my shipment of Cap and Spidey Marvel Legends this week. 

I'll be charging $20 each - will try to keep them together as sets, so won't have any extra army builders.  Should have some extra Caps though since they are two per pack.

The fact that TRU and Target is able to sell them for $15 each....I dunno, but feels like a kick in the nuts from Hasbro.  They raised their prices on this wave (for me at least) and then I have to charge $5 more than the chain stores tells me that they don't really want my business much anymore.

So what army builders could they have filled in the remaining slots with?

Madrox
Hellfire Guards
Doombots
SHIELD Agents
Hand Ninjas
Stepford Cuckoos
Moloids
Bamfs

If they did these in future I can't think of any remaining large armybuilder BAFs, unless it's classic Mandroids.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread

If they did an army builder wave I wouldn't mind more of those, I'd even put blue AIMs in there as well as more:

Skrulls
Kree
Brood

Actually I think a Kree Sentry makes sense for an army-builder BAF though a different version of Sentinel does too.

How about an Asgardians boxed set with....y'know.....all the characters you're pushing in the movies? Odin, Sif, Warriors Three, Heimdall, etc.

Inhumans boxed set. Re-use the Black Bolt figure if you must, but give us Medusa, Karnak, Gorgon, etc.

X-Kids. Marvel keep pushing titles with the next gen of X-Men so let's see Pixie, Anole and the rest.




I could go on.

Inhumans would make much more sense. Frankly, with the old X-Men already having changed uniforms (and not for the better), nothing about this reveal makes much sense.

That said -- I'd buy it. Don't know why we haven't seen more classic X stuff throught the years -- and will we ever see classic 6-inch Sunfire, Thunderbird, Polaris and human Beast?!

Case pack out hitting now:

Superior Spider-Man x 2
Carnage x 1
Black Cat x 1
Ultimate Beetle x 1
Movie Electro x 1

Running change will replace Bettle with Boomerang, Black Cat with Spider-Girl (Anya), and Carnage with Toxin.  Boomerang and Spider-Girl just showed up in Asia today, so they might actually make it out which would me nice for a change.

As far as the X-Men SDCC set goes, I'm just going to pretend it's a Stan Lee wankfest instead.  Helps that I've never read the Bendis book.  ;D

The one thing Hasbro did consistently well was make good stuff for SDCC.  Apparently they can't do that anymore either.  That packs is pure and utter horseshit.  I quite literally wouldn't take it for free. 

They have like 15 figures....GOOD figure no less, that they've fucking shown us, and have not put out.  And yet they release a pack of the most boring figure I've ever seen.  Great job assholes.   [moon]

It's a great choice for an exclusive because enough people will want it and plenty of people will be happy to pass. A few years ago I would've loved this set, these days I generally only want one version of most characters and I've got the ones of these I want.

The only one out now I want for myself is Electro because I have a bizarre fondness for movie characters. Beetle is a stunning figure but it's not "my" Beetle. Black Cat is much better than the previous version ... but I'm happy with what I've got. So I'm splitting the wave with a friend who likes Ultimate but not movie versions :)

And MikeS as always is the way to go with these. It's one thing to stop at a bunch of stores when you're out anyway but to go out of your way hunting for them isn't worth it especially with everyone out looking and even more so here in L.A.!

Ebay people are funny :)

My friend who's building Ultimate Goblin hates movie figures and I don't need another Spider-Man so I placed a reasonable bid on that BAF part. Looks like a sniping war happened because, you know, those parts are so rare they have to be sniped  ::)

So the part went for almost the cost of buying the figure in the first place. And another part went up and I got it Buy It Now for less than i bid on the first one :)

Yeah, I've seen that. Often the same seller will have a B.I.N for $30 and another for auction. People bid on the suction and it ends up going for $29.80 or something. People are weird.

Discount Comic Book Service

I had used them to obtain the Previews Exclusive Wolverine wave previous to this without a hitch.

Quote
HASBRO TOY GROUP has increased the price of this product from $183.92 to $239.92. The DCBS price was $183.92 and is now $191.94. If you would like to remove this product from your order please reply to this e-mail.

Thanks,
DCBS Customer Service

They don't make it very clear in the original email. The original price was 20% off @ 147.14. So basically it went from $147.14 to $191.94.

Also, even though I confirmed this and replied, no one has bothered to confirm my cancellations.


Also if the X-Men set is a Toys R Us thing, then I can still hold out hope for original GoTG at SDCC!

Great.  What a wonderful exclusive.  They'll fly right off the shelves at that price.   [moon]

Y'know Jersey, you're right ... but some people do want this fucking waste of time!

And I really don't believe that putting this out held back the others. Seems they're keeping the ball rolling and getting what they can into stores, so there's some new product out there at least.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread

To be fair, Hasbro are cunts. Just thought I'd say that.

Why do you ask? Well let's look at it like this....

Captain America Legends. I'm getting...

1x Captain America NOW (Head)
1x Red Skull (Arm)
1x Zemo (Arm)

But wait, I also wanted the swap out army builders, so I'm also getting

1x AIM (Arm)
1x Hydra (Arm)

But I also decided to get the other Cap figure, who comes with no B.A.F part. If they had any kind of clue whatsoever they would have included another head with the second Cap. That way, fans would have two half built Mandroids. Instead we have two spare arms.

Assholes.

True.  Considering the last exclusive box sets in this scale were Wal Mart DCUC @ $59.99 for 5 figures.

But there's such a "cool factor" here for me with this set.  Kirby Kool that is.  I'm not much of a Marvel guy anymore but I'm seriously considering this set.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread

Oh Come ON!!!  That last part is a tad hypocritical.  Just because you LOVE Kirby doesn't make the set good either.  Who does it appeal to other than Messer type guys?  That's not the biggest demographic is the collecting world. 

I won't even dignify the first part with a response.

Post by: JQ3x29yz4a on January 18, 2014, 06:56:54 pm
OK I haven't done one of these in a long time and now I'm doing two ...

Captain America Legends Right-Outta-The-Box Review (this is where I pull an entire wave randomly out of the box and give my first impression):

WW2 Captain America - nicely sculpted all around, with nice "dirty" paint apps for a battleworn look. Has his shield of course and a gun, because Cap loved his guns back in the war. Unfortunately has that front facing hinged neck that always looks bad because it's moulded in dark plastic and then lightly painted with flesh so it looks like he's got a gash in his neck.

If it had a Mandroid head I'd keep this figure and make two of them :)

Agents of Hydra - very cool, non-distinct sculpt for army-building. The rifle with the big Hydra logo attachment looks a bit weird though.

Baron Zemo - wow, nice looking figure! Nice translation of a great costume design. Vibrant colors but still looks dangerous.

Marvel Now! Captain America - beautiful figure, love the intrictate details and the face sculpt has some personality to it. One of the best Cap figures ever.

Red Skull - not my preferred look but outstanding head sculpt. Definitely an upgrade over previous versions. Nice to have a cosmic cube though it's a bit blue for my tastes.

Soldiers of AIM - well ... hmm. I don't know. Kinda cool to get AIM soldiers but ... the helmet just looks a bit off. The front has a bulge like it's pressed right against the face and ... well, I'm glad they made them and I hate to complain but* ... :(


*I'm not sending this one to Australia ...

Post by: JQ3x29yz4a on January 18, 2014, 07:17:09 pm
Spider-Man 2 Legends Right-Outta-The-Box Review

Beetle - ok big mistake on this one. It really is a great sculpt but my favourite thing about him is the vibrant green on the wings ... which are packaged facing the other way. This figure should pop on the shelf but it's pretty much a neutral looking red and silver guy in Iron-Mannish armor. The pale green eyes don't help. Very nice looking figure though.

Carnage - looks really nice with well-sculpted claws and little symbiote spiral things all over. Looks good.

Black Cat - oh wow this is a beautiful figure. The bust may be going a bit far but I can't see anyone but moms complaining. Excellent sculpt. The hair and fur detail, the face, the hands. First figure ever I forgive the blue-on-white shading on -- it's that good. Wow.

Amazing Spider-Man - well, if you're into movie figures it's nice. Super-poseable, fist hands and alternate thwipp hands.

Superior Spider-Man - nice figure version of this costume. Looks a bit big. Instead of the fist hands he's been shown with he has grabbing hands to hold onto webbing that he doesn't come with. Also has alternate thwipp hands.

Electro - very cool looking figure. Translucent hands and heads -- he has an alternate which seems wasteful. Nice sculpt but you know, a movie figure.

1x SPD LEGENDS ELECTRO
1x SPD LEGENDS SPAWN OF SYMBIOTES (Toxin)
1x SPD LEGENDS DEADLIEST FOES (Boomerang)

Ugggh....that is just awful. Sorry to hear that Mike  :(

Whatever happened to case assortments? Remember how McFarlane would do some for mass market chains with more Spawn figs and then a case 'B' or 'C' with large quantities of the 'girl' fig, etc?

Tell me that a 'C' case of Cap legends figures that were nothing but Hydra and A.I.M figures wouldn't have moved?

Yeah, at least with Mattel you could order solid packs of the DCUC figures.  Of course, I still have a couple cases of Golden Pharoah, but for the most part it made sense.  If I thought one figure in a wave was going to be a little more popular, I would add an extra case.  If they had thrown in Black Cat and Carnage in there instead of the 4 Spider-Men I would probably have been able to justify it, but this is just too much.

I hate to cut everyone off.  The only way to do it is to go the BBTS route and offer them only as the set of 6 (so you end up with another Amazing Spider-Man and Superior Spider-Man) or to buy them by the case....it's just that having only 3 new figures per case is a killer.

Greedy bastards they want you to buy a new set for variants and it will attract foreign customers like us. I kinda blamed Toybiz for giving them an idea of variants but I wish some other companies like Mattel would make them now or revive Toybiz since they make the movies now.

The only good figure to get thier are boomerang and spidergirl.Toxin would be similar to carnage and I rather get the Toxin from the Spidey classics line.

I hate to cut everyone off.  The only way to do it is to go the BBTS route and offer them only as the set of 6 (so you end up with another Amazing Spider-Man and Superior Spider-Man) or to buy them by the case....it's just that having only 3 new figures per case is a killer.

I'm willing to do that but only if it helps you out. The problem is I usually get a full set for Gary but I'm picky with my Legends lately and am more likely to skip a character here and there.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: Chooch on January 24, 2014, 11:56:46 pm
Even with selling sets of six, BBTS has to waaaaaay overprice them to make up for all the Spidey's they'll be sitting on.  At least with the other figures we missed they were never released.  Putting out three of them for thousands to fight over is a much bigger dick move.

And here's the Cap Wave 2 line-up:

3x Captain America
1x Black Widow
2x Winter Soldier
1x Red Skull (Agents of H.Y.D.R.A.)
1x Baron Zemo (Soldiers of A.I.M.)

I guess you at least get 2 Winter Soldiers per case.

I'm giving up the thought of army building here. I haven't seen one AIM or Hydra agent in the wild. At the show that Sad Violin and I went to they were going for $35. I usually get 3 of any army builder but in this case I'll end up going with a Hydra display of:

Baron Strucker
Madame Hydra
Hydra Soldier
Hydra Soldier variant
Agent of Hydra

For AIM I'll have to get just one more and with Zemo that should be enough. Actually I hope to make a diorama with all of them against SHIELD Agents :)

In the meantime I'm finding multiples of all of the Caps and Spideys everywhere ...

That diorama sounds awesome!

I was thinking about how hard Hasbro have made it to army build the Mandroid. Not getting a second head with the second Cap in the first wave is fucked.

Now wave 2 has the torso with Black Widow. Yeah, she'll be easy to get multiples.

I just bought these - http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/350959410357?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649
They share the same arms and legs as the Mandroid. Then I'm gonna try casting the Mandroid head and torso.

I've also got several spare DCUC Captain Cold figures. I'll make a cast of the A.I.M scientist's head and make my own.

Just Sharing my strange amusement with this HTS debacle.

So I've been hearing "horror stories" about how folks who ordered AIM and Hydra were getting Zemo and Skull and vice versa. WW2 Cap showing up instead of Now Cap in orders. First order was a small box with only Skull. Which is one of the 3 Cap figures I ordered, so, so far, so good. The other two ordered were Zemo and Now Cap along with the entire Spidey wave. AIM and Hydra were sold out on HTS.

In the meantime, I tried ordering from the notorious K-Mart ship to store online deal. Ordered 2 Hydra and 2 AIM for giggles. People told me it'd get filled incorrectly, but I figured since I've never done it the worst that could happen was some lost time one evening. For my trouble, I did manage to score one Hydra dude. The others were 1 Skull, 1 WW2 Cap and 1 Now Cap (which at the time I assumed I didn't need Skull or Now Cap).

So the Spidey order came correct as expected. The Cap order sent me a WW2 Cap instead of a Now Cap (guess I needed that Now Cap the other day after all) and instead of Baron Zemo they sent me an AIM Soldier.

I'm not going to return an AIM soldier for $20.  [sign] I'll probably attempt to return WW2 Cap, but I don't expect much more than a refund as both Caps are now listed as OOS on HTS.

Unless they are just cleaning house after all the screw ups. I suppose I should be pissed, but for some reason I feel like this may have worked in my benefit. Unless Now Cap and Zemo become super hard to find now or something.

I just don't feel it at all. The Cyke is almost identical to one we got before, Wolverine is a repaint (and too tall), Sabretooth looks ugly on that buck (and is inferior to his two previous figs) and Emma is an apology for something they should have gotten right the first time.

Puck is ok. He too diminutive. He should be short, but thick, which he's not.

Post by: JQ3x29yz4a on February 01, 2014, 12:03:24 am
All I wanted from that wave was Puck. I didn't like the looks of the other figures at all. My friend who wants the variants was going to give me the extra Puck parts but then I remembered what happened with the Hit Monkey wave so I just bought a cheap Puck on its own.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: Stars on February 01, 2014, 12:09:56 am
The best Sabretooth as far as I'm concerned is the MS one in his original costume. That being the case, all others are OK in my book.

Cyke...I dunno, I like him well enough.

Emma: well I don't have the new one. Too expensive. So I can't really compare.

Puck: as an old-school AF fan, I'm just happy to have him.

I returned WW2 yesterday. HTS actually refunded me before I even sent the item back. Went back to that Kmart yesterday as well and they still had the Now Cap I put back from Monday, so I grabbed that.

Now all I need is a SRP Zemo.

Also snagged a loose Future Foundation Spidey from a local Comic Shop at (to me) a reasonable $20.

They apparently keep getting the Captain America wave and selling out of all but WW II Cap. They had 3.

My Cap and Spidey Legends turned up (thanks again Mike).

Can't say they've blown me away. The A.I.M Agent is nice, but really big. I can't tell off the top of my head if this is a whole new sculpt or parts of an existing buck? (obviously the head is)

The Hydra agent is "ok", but is really missing that unique factor that made the first one so cool. It's really just a rehash of that same buck we always get with a new head. I would have much preferred a Hellfire Club goon.

WWII Cap is the worst of the lot. A nicely sculpted figure of a character no one asked for....the worst offense though is he's tiny. He's dwarfed by the A.I.M Agent.

Black Cat is nice, despite the fact that her head won't stay on due to the way her hair is sculpted. She'll be tough one to stand up too due to high heels and very little contact area with the ground.

The Red Skull headsculpt is nice and I might make a cast of it and finally do a Kirby RS as the reuse of the Nick Fury body and jacket is not doing it for me.

Zemo is cool and it's nie to have Father and son together.

Beetle seems to be made of really, really cheap plastic. The others are cheapish in feel, but this figure reeks of nastiness.

Carnage. A surprisingly good figure of a character I can take or leave. The jaw is not articulated which is a shame.

If it was as easy as walking in a normal retail store and grabbing 1 AIM and 1 Hydra and that X-Men box set, I would do it for you guys.

However, (don't know if I mentioned this here) but I only got one of each by complete accident and the only place I know where they are plentiful charge the Aftermarket price of $35-$40 a piece. I feel lucky that I found any myself. Usually, I do the online thing anyway which would just create additional cost.

I'll keep a look out, but I don't honestly expect to see anything at retail except the 6 WW2 Caps I've seen at the local Targets.

Same here.

I've seen 1 Hydra, 1 AIM, 2 Zemo, 1 Black Cat, 1 Beetle and 1 Carnage.

The ONLY place I've seen them is one Target store, and they aren't getting new cases because they have 4 WW2 Caps on the shelf and they won't restock until they have 2 or less figures.

The $8 markup would be worth it in savings of gasoline money from fruitlessly driving around looking for a second AIM guy but still more than I want to pay just yet. If I see one in a store I happen to be at great -- I'm sure eventually one will turn up.

No. It's because Hasbro Australia have no fucking clue. When the A$ was way above the US$, 6" figures would still retail here for $30 or more. Collectors just weren't prepared to pay that so they found alternative sources....and I suspect the casual Mom's got better value elsewhere so the stuff apparently doesn't sell. The head buyer of action figures for TRU in Australia was overheard saying that 6" lines at retail were dead in this country. That's more than likely true, but who killed it is the argument?

Would people be interested in some kind of buddy list?

It's essentially a list by person and the figures they want. If other people find those figures then they work out an exchange, cross them off the list then the next person is on top of the list for that figure, etc?

A shame Groot couldn't have been a b.a.f but he's still a buy for me.
Drax and R.Raccoon are a pass.

Gamora is okay, but she needs a new head.

Starlord is a buy, but I want the helmeted head.



Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: JerseyManiac! on February 13, 2014, 06:49:14 pm
Well folks.....this might be the end of legends.  I don't understand how Hasbro could be this stupid.  They said, and I quote, "we will be adding COMIC versions to the movie lines".  Spiderman has them, Cap has them, GOTG?  NONE!  Groot is ok as a comic figure I guess, and he IS the BAF Fish, but its not great.  The other four are pure fucking garbage!  If you make Starlord and Namora in their comic looks, this line is a hit.  Judging strictly on EVERY OTHER MOVIE LINE EVER!!!, these will surely go down in pegwaming history. 

Thanks Hasbro.  Thanks a lot. 


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: Titansfan on February 13, 2014, 07:01:37 pm
Jersey there could be more to the wave than just those.  They were trying to recreate that movie pic with the figures.  I think Groot will be the BAF or maybe the racoon.  That should leave another couple spots open.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: JerseyManiac! on February 13, 2014, 07:48:11 pm
There are two more figures, and only one wave.

And tell me one....ONE successful line of movie figures?  X-Men?  Iron Man?  Marvel Legends once Hasbro decided it was a good idea to put movie Jean, Juggernaut, and Colossus? 


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: Stars on February 13, 2014, 07:59:05 pm
Groot IS the BAF. Also they are going to reveal the other 2 figures later during Toyfair. My guess is one of them will be comic Starlord using the AIM body.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: Chooch on February 13, 2014, 08:06:49 pm
I'm thinking a comic Starlord and Gamora.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread

not sure they'd have two versions of Starlord in the same wave


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: Stars on February 13, 2014, 08:41:04 pm
3 Caps in the new Captain America Legends and 2 Spideys in the Spider Man Legends, so there is a precedent.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: fishmilkshake on February 13, 2014, 09:08:26 pm
The other two figures are probably just more movie figs like Yondu and The Collector who look nothing like their comic counterparts.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: JerseyManiac! on February 13, 2014, 10:46:51 pm
I will retract what I said earlier until ToyFair.  All they really have to do is add comic heads for Starlord and Namora and you got yourself a decent line. 

One thing though.....I like that Groot, and would love to put in on my MU shelf, cause the scale will be perfect, but I am NOT paying $19.99 for that Racoon.  If he is not packed in with someone, they can forget it.  This is not the same as paying $10.00 for Yoda. 


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread

Why do you keep calling Gamora, Namora?


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: Stars on February 13, 2014, 11:06:38 pm
I've thought about it and here is what I've come up with.

We know Groot is the BAF, but I also think Raccoon may be a pack-in accessory like Timmy from the PITT BAF.

If that is the case we have only been shown 3 single carded figures, which means there are likely 3 more PLUS 3 "replacement" figures.

That would account for the comic Starlord, along with movie versions of Ronan, Yondu, Nebula, Korath or the Collector.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread

The X-Men set looks really nice but a few things put me off. Beast really is too big, I prefer solid color withouth shading but these have orange shading on the yellow, and Cyclops visor is just painted -- some translucent plastic there would have been nice. Anyway it really is a nice looking set but I still don't feel I need one for myself, this one I picked up for a friend.

Looks like there will be G.o.t.G figures in that goofy 8" scale as well. Since there's a Groot, I wonder if that negates any need for the 6" B.A.F since the 8" one will be huge?

Post by: JQ3x29yz4a on February 18, 2014, 03:23:55 am
How do you guys feel about the comic accuracy of the Hydra, AIM and Red Skull figures?

I have a friend who really doesn't like movie figures and only wants comic accurate figures. While he'll let some things slide he's on the fence about these figures. He feels that the AIM figure doesn't look like any AIM uniform he's seen in the comics. It looks fine to me considering there have been so many variations, in fact it looks like  a pretty basic AIM suit considering how many times we've seen fairly radical departures in the comics. Hydra isn't my preferred look, I like the classic which we already have, but looking around at Hydra images online it's pretty much the uniform "Bob" from the Deadpool series wears.

Then there's Red Skull. The head is pretty spot on for comics and definitely not the movie head ... but he feels the rest of the figure is closer to the movie version than to comics. So he's said if these versions of the characters show up in the new Cap movie he's giving them back to me for my army!


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: Stars on February 18, 2014, 07:31:43 am
That is a valid point of view, look at the new Toxin. He billed as the comic version, but only has a passing resemblance.

So I understand, but that said, it is almost impossible to get ANY "comic-accurate" versions these days, although it does happen occasionally.

One reason is the comics themselves. All artists draw costumes differently, some add tweeks that stick, while others draw tweeks that don't. Not to mention the fact that costumes change all the time. It seems the X-Men have new slightly different costumes every year.

Then there is Hasbro and their mold reuse. The big names and some lower-tiered characters, (Beetle anyone?) will get completely new molds every once in a while, but not always. Hasbro has released the newest Wolverine 3 times, all with varying success to comic-accuracy. Now as for troop builders, unless it is a mold that can have future reuse, there will never be a new mold for them. The AIM figure is an awesome new mold, but you know it will be reused. It was nice to see it used here first, but it probably wasn't intended for that figure originally.

As to the specifics of AIM, Hydra and Red Skull, they are all more than passable as comicbook versions. Now the new movie Electro on the other hand... :D

As for Hydra, well, if that's what Bob wears, isn't that comic-accurate?


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: JQ3x29yz4a on February 18, 2014, 12:19:12 pm
Yeah, it's good enough for me. I've got plenty of the H-smock versions so I'm happy to have more specialised uniforms. The double-breasting on AIM bothers me a bit ... I mean how protective is that suit if it has a buttoned flap?


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: fishmilkshake on February 18, 2014, 03:22:48 pm
How do you guys feel about the comic accuracy of the Hydra, AIM and Red Skull figures?

A.I.M - My only critique is that the figure is huge. The buck is very big next to other 'normal' figures. Now that's not to say that big guys can't apply to A.I.M, but Zemo Sr created A.I.M as the scientific offshoot of Hydra so, y'know, you'd think those guys would be nerdy Peter parker types. But for me, the figure is long overdue and I want dozens of them.

Hydra - I'm not a huge fan of the new one. Yeah, it's meets the requirements and for those people who can't find the first one to army build this is as good as you'll get. Personally, the first figure rocks!! It's got so much more personality compared to the new one. Best of all, the open mouth variant just screams Kirby. It's a great tribute to the King.

Red Skull - The headsculpt is fantastic. The body not so much. Though it is close to one of his comic costumes. If you want 'classic', then he needs the green jumpsuit. The problem is that he's been shown so many different ways over the years. During Gruenwald's run he was often shown in just a suit. These days the young kids drawing Marvel are all for the variant of the SS uniform and trenchcoat.

Also, was actually amazed they had Spidey and Cap waves in the aisles. Nothing but Caps or Spideys, but still the last time I saw legitimate six inch guys at Walmarts in my area were the Wave One Iron Man 3 dudes and maybe a trickle of Man of Steel figures.

I got Boomerang and Toxin today.  Boomerang is pretty good, Toxin looks like hot watery shit.  No sign of the Spidery Girl, but I don't want her anyway.  Hell, I don't even know who it is! 

Anyway, one of those Hasbro cock smokers said at TF that at SDCC there would be news on 3 new Legends lines.  Considering Days of Future Past comes out before the Guardians, are we to assume that X-Men will NOT be getting a Legends wave.  Or will they put it out after the movie is already out? 

We can assume that one of the waves shown will be the Avengers 2 wave.  If they had any decency whatsoever, they will put Bulldozer, Sentry, Tiger Shark, AND Blizzard in this wave.  Fuck the movie figures that we don't want!  And speaking of movie figs, Cap wave 2 looks fucking awful!  I was gonna buy them to build the BAF.  Now I'll just get the pieces on ebay.  Or not at all.  Its not worth $60 plus tax for JUST BAF pieces to me.

A toy line for X-Men? I'm not sure they're popular enough?

I hear you on the B.A.F thing. I can't remember the last time I wanted every figure in a wave and was then excited to build the B.A.F. I don't want half the figures in the Cap and Spidey waves.

Anyone buying the BAF parts on ebay be careful -- for the Cap series the parts guide lists the arms from the figure's perspective but the legs from your perspective, so "Right Arm" means the Mandroid's right arm but "Left Leg" means the Mandroid's right leg. Also, unlike the arms, the leg's are exactly the same as Iron Monger's except for the color.

Getting just the BAF parts from ebay makes a lot of sense. I love movie figures even if they're a bit crappy. Winter Soldier is a great sculpt and Black Widow looks a lot nicer in hand than I expected. Stealth Cap or whatever I could do without but I want the alternate head besides the BAF part so I was ok buying him.

Out of the Captan America assortment, I still don't know if I'll be picking up any of them so far. I'll probably wait until the second half of the wave hits stores before committing to this segment.

I'm building the Avengers team from the movie with whatever versions one characters I like. Picked up the Marvel Select Hulk with The modern Hawkeye. Truth be told I originally wanted the classic but ended up really liking the modem one. So now im siftung through all the horrible Cap figures to choose from when this modern Captain America. The costume looks better as a fugure than my limited exposure to it in comics. It looks great but a bit big. Hoping it's not but it looks almost like a 7 inch figure. Anyone open one yet?

The head sculpt is a bit wonky too. I'm undecided as to how I feel about it. He looks older and like a hard ass, which is cool but different than what im used too.

So I stopped by the Wally that's on my route home. They did have both the Spider-Man and Captain America figures. If this was 5 years ago, I'd probably be interested in Zemo, Hydra agent and A.I.M. goon. The Cap figure didn't impress. I would have picked up Black Cat, but there wasn't one on the pegs -- naturally.

At least it made it out to the floor. I think many times at stores the shortpacked ones are squirreled away and bought by the employees of these stores and sold on ebay. It's amazing to me that these huge companies are so bad at setting up the cases for this stuff.

Especially when those figures contain B.A.F parts that mean there are arms galore out there, but the main part (torso) ships with the figure (Natasha) that according to Hasblo no one wants so it's shortpacked.

Someone somewhere in this equation should google what's going on with their own products, then they should just be ordering solid cases of Black Widow. They would sell the fuck out. Combine the fact that she was missing from the lineup of those Avengers figures with the popularity of the character and the actress, and you've got what would be the top selling figure of the year. They would make millions off of perverts alone without even figuring in the kids that want a strong central female character.

But incredibly, Hasbro will tell you otherwise. They'll tell you why it's just not worth the time to ship cases of nothing but A.I.M and Hydra army builders to the 4,000 comics shops that'd happily order them.

True, but there's a whole other wave just sitting there in the form of the first "Fan vote" which includes Lilandra, Silver Samurai, a new Storm, etc. Then there's the secodn one that included Red Hood, Borther Voodoo, etc.

If you take into account the 10 or so Toyfare/Sunfire contest guys and the ones from Toyfair several years ago where Deadpool, Jean, Valkyrie, etc were first shown, that has to be 50 or so figures that haven't been made.

If you google the wave, you can see the protos they showed at SDCC years ago. We've now gotten the Hand Ninja, AIM Scientist and Hydra Agent. But we never saw the Doombot or Hellfire club goon. I think the other was a Brood.

I inquired about international shipping rates and I got this back from an ebay seller.

******
Sadly, Hasbro is no longer allowing US sellers to ship their product overseas so you will not be able to see any of our Hasbro product going forward. If you want us to send you Hasbro product, you have to visit the US Ebay site to view our Hasbro offerings, then have your item shipped to a friend in the US. I understand that this is a very unreasonable expectation, but sadly, it is the only solution we are left with. As you can imagine, we are pretty upset about it as it represents about 20% of our total sales. You will find other sellers who have decided to simply ignore this rule at their own risk. Hasbro has threatened to pull the account of anyone attempting to sell overseas. We can not risk our account being pulled so we have had decided to abide by their policy. We are urging them to reconsider and are trying to find a legal way around the policy.

Hmmm....I haven't received anything official, although there might be some truth to it.  I don't buy from Hasbro directly but from another distributor.

All of the Hasbro stuff now says - "This item cannot ship to certain locations outside the United States." 

Might be they are trying to crack down.

If they do, it wouldn't effect our one on one deals - they'll probably just try to block my on-line sales on eBay/Amazon.  Although if they do tell me that I'll take the opportunity to tell Hasbro to kiss my [moon]

I notice more and more sellers are choosing to create their ebay listings using the "International Customs" option where customs fees are factored into the final costs. Not sure why that is since we're not liable to pay any fees on anything under $1000?

That might be the eBay Global Shipping Program that everyone seems to hate.

As a seller it's a little easier as you only have to ship your item to a US shipping center.  As a buyer you get to pay the shipping to the US shipping center, the shipping to you, and then outrageous customs fees.    Plus you get to wait longer to get your items.   [think]  sounds like a winner to me...

Need to ask Mike about this. My main concern is Star Wars. If true (or to be taken seriously), then I'm out.

Hmmm....I haven't received anything official, although there might be some truth to it.  I don't buy from Hasbro directly but from another distributor.

All of the Hasbro stuff now says - "This item cannot ship to certain locations outside the United States." 

Might be they are trying to crack down.

If they do, it wouldn't effect our one on one deals - they'll probably just try to block my on-line sales on eBay/Amazon.  Although if they do tell me that I'll take the opportunity to tell Hasbro to kiss my [moon]


One on One sales FTW!

With Freakstudio's problems with importing and Oz having this happen out of nowhere, one has to wonder where all this international restriction is coming from.

You have companies like Hasbro Australia who reserve the right to import Hasbro product. So Oz retail stores can't go through anyone but them due to the licensing agreement. Then some assclown at Hasbro Australia says "no" to the Cap Infinite Legends and that's the end of seeing them at retail at Oz.

So collectors like me buy them from ebay US or good old Mike, but now you've got the added joy of Hasbro telling US retailers not to send product to Australia, because it's breaching the agreement that Hasbro Australia has set-up to be the only distributor in this country.

The fact that they aren't getting said product, thereby thoroughly excising potential sales is completely fucking insane.

My LCS has tried to set-up an account with Hasbro on a number of occassions and they simply don't reply to her inquiries.

Stopping at a Target today proved to be a wise decision. I found Toxin, Boomerang, and Spider-girl hanging on the pegs. I could only get 2, so I chose Spider-girl and Boomerang. I think Toxin is just ok, Boomerang is my fave because he fits in so nicely with my SDCC Thunderbolts set.

I've had multiple opportunities to get the All New X-Men set, but this is something I'll surprisingly take a pass on. I'm really trying to fight off my completist nature.

No Army Builders in Wave 2.  3 x Movie Caps, 2 x Winter Soldiers, 1 x Black Widow, 1 x Red Skull, 1 x Zemo.  I'm guessing they got in some Wave 2 cases and sold the new stuff.

There clearly will never be another case of Spider-Man figures shipped ANYWHERE!  Everystore I see has full pegs of 1 Electro, 3 Amazings, and 5 Superiors that are never, EVER selling.  I wish I had bought the one Spider-Girl I saw.  I have absolutely no interest in the character, and have never even heard of her, but the price should be pretty high at some point soon.

Via the always awesome Mike S, I received my Toxin, Boomerang, Arachne, Blue Cap, Winter Soldier and Black Widow and I have to say that all six of them are very underwhelming. The most exciting thing about any of them was the Cap swap out head that I can put on a SHIELD agent.

That's too bad. I skipped Toxin and Arachne, having no use for the characters or the BAF. Boomerang I think is an awesome figure. Blue Cap, yeah only good for the BAF part and spare head. Winter Soldier and Black Widow -- they look great, especially Black Widow. The likeness is excellent and the limp-haired head looks better than the real thing!

I never got those, so these are the best I could get for reasonable money.

I dig the blue Cap, so much so that I don't mind having two. I see nothing wrong with it. One's displayed with the masked head, one with the Steve Rogers head, and that one's got a shield that I painted in red.

I like the new costume....particularly in the context of DnA's writing of the character.

...I TOTALLY don't get Hasbro's "marketing" approach, or utter lack thereof, when it comes to the Marvel movies lately!  "Avengers" Legends were practically impossible to find... "Thor" got ONE movie-accurate figure, "Thor:TDW"ndidn't get SHIT (Hello, Kurse, Malkith??)...  The first Cap-Movie got one movie-Cap, Movie Nick Fury, and a repainted WW II "Ultimates" Cap...  Iron Man I, II, and III were all sorts of messed up (No Whiplash, Drones, Killian, Mandarin, Extremis Soldiers, but by golly we got an early Ultron and a comic Classic armor & Iron Patriot!)...  "Winter Soldier" gets two Movie-Caps, Movie Black Widow, Movie Winter Soldier, a comic-Baron Zemo and what I THINK was supposed to be a first-movie Red Skull... But no Falcon, Rumlow, Strucker, Pierce... Spider-Man 2 gets a Spidey & Electro, but no Harry Goblin or Rhino... and Guardians of the Galaxy gets the whole team (thankfully), but no Ronan, Korath, Collector, or Thanos??   What is wrong with these guys??

Part of the problem, I think, is that we are getting two or three Marvel movies a year, and ultimately Hasbro doesn't have the resources to develop more comprehensive toy lines for any single one of them.

I seem to remember Toy Guru saying that the big stores like Walmart don't want more than a few waves per year. So there's no point making ten waves of figures a year if no one is willing to carry them.

That said, the fact that you can't find Stormtroopers or A.I.M Scientists is the real problem.

I did manage to get one Hydra goon after ordering doubles of it online and doubles of the AIM soldier.

K-Mart came back with one Hydra goon, A Now Cap, A WW2 Cap and The Red Skull.

I only paid and bought the Hydra goon. Then HTS sent me a WW2 instead of a Now Cap. I returned that and went back to the K-Mart and luckily the Now Cap was still on the peg.

However the last time I went to the two local K-Marts it was barren as far as Legends go.

They still had DCUC Cyclotron on the shelf though. :)

The extra head and hands included in the latest Hasbro releases really sets the bar IMO. Hasbro, who long resisted the scale is now the pack leader. I wish they could get some of the promised variants out. I am still disappointed in that, but it has been a while since I was disappointed in the final product of a 6" Hasbro release.

I agree with pretty much all of that in terms of the figures. The A.I.M Scientist is a great figure, but the fucking distribution is a joke.

It's not even the variants either, there's a whole wave of awesome out there with Batroc, Blizzard, etc. I'd take take them in a heartbeat over Stealth Strike movie Cap.

The Masked Face also doesn't work for me. Really wish they would have given him an actual Domino mask. I can't imagine anybody would care.

Anybody got suggestions to lessen how it looks like he's been weeping to Death Cab for Cutie and his mascara ran?

Also, his rifle sucks. Did he even use this damn thing? I don't remember it. I actually thought it was a weapon for the Mandroid at first.

I think I'm gonna steal one of Fury's AR-15's for him.

You don't have the comic version?

If you really want to lessen the 'smoke' then I'd suggest dry-brushing a similar flesh colour in a gradual approach.

No, he didn't use that weird ass gun. Why they didn't just give him one of the SHIELD agent ARs is a mystery known only to the faceless "Comic Fans" at Hasbro.

I did not get the comic version. I have the 3 3/4" of the comic version, but not the 6" one.

The twopacks hit at a time when I didn't have the money to blow (I only got the Kree/Skrull one) and I didn't see a lot of value in many of them (though I wish I had Dugan).

The Stealth Cap is awesome, I'd rather have him than a throwaway character like Batroc.

If they wanted to cut a figure to give us Batroc, I'd rather cut WWII Cap over Stealth Cap, as the former already got a figure when the first movie came out.

Post by: RockoJerome on April 13, 2014, 01:02:07 am
Stealth Cap is the look of the movie. In the ads, on the posters, all over the place. No way they could not do that figure. I actually think WW II Cap was an addition late in the design phase, when they learned that he's back in that suit at the climax and they had the mold already. I think that's why there's no Mandroid part.

really regretting passing on black widow the other day but would've meant running to the bank and withdrawing from my savings which I didn't feel like doing.

You could've sold it on ebay and made a lot to put in that savings account.

He's entitled to that opinion, of course, but if we're gonna cut a figure, I'd prefer we cut the retread over the new look.

I think the reason we haven't had a Thor line is it's cost prohibitive. Any Asgardians will require extensive tooling with all that clothing and armour combos. Kurse would be fine, but I'd prefer a B.A.F Odin or Volstagg.

I feel safe in saying it's not the SIZE of the figure that determines if Walmart or TARGET carries the product, it's the price point that the figure/size carries once on the pegs that makes the ultimate determination to being found on the brick and mortar toy shelves.

Overall, action figures are like newspapers.. suffering a slow death. The larger the figure the more it cost to produce & sell. Mom and Dad are non too happy about buying little Johnny a $22 Spider-Man figure.. when just next to the $22 spidey, on another peg, is a very similar Spider-Man figure for $7-$8 ($12-$13 cheaper)... it's just a bit smaller. Walmart knows this, TARGET knows this, and we know it too... 6" figures are just too expensive these days for most retail pegs.

This explains why things are the way they are, and why they will only get worse. The future for 6" figures will almost certainly be online only. These are not impulse buy figures, or even part of most Toy Dept. aisles plans moving forward (xmas excluded).

Regards,

SV

I'm sure there are things that can be done to help cut production costs.  Cutting articulation should be one.  Certain figures really only need five POA.  Not many admittedly.  Others really do need all 21 POA.  Even more for some.  Fewer accessories too.  Packaging should be minimal (but the package art should still be awesome).  This hit me as I was looking at the WWE figures at TrU today.  I realize the production numbers are way out of proportion, but $11.99 for a six inch figure is where we should be.

Marvel Legends prices were insane at Wonder Con this past weekend. Toy Biz figures were priced to NOT sell ... except to people who just needed that one figure. The current stuff was as expected: Carnage $45 and up. Black Cat, Hydra and AIM -- the last being the rarest -- $40 at most places, higher at some. Spider Girl or whatever she is, $35. Toxin was all over the place, $25 to $50. Lots of fun with Black Widow. One vendor had her for $40, then $50 when we passed by later, then $60. Then next day he was selling her only as part of a set along with Captain America and Baron Zemo for $110. One of my friends was offered the BAF part alone for $25, $40 for the whole package. Mike convinced him to wait till the next wave comes out since she'll be 2 per case.

And speaking of Mikes, MikeS had the best prices in the whole convention on Marvel Legends!

Not much interest in Baron Zemo and Red Skull.  Sold out of the 4 Winter Soldiers I brought and could have sold a lot more of those if they would only offer them in solid packs.  Lots of request for the first wave Spidey figures - Carnage and Black Cat, but I didn't have those.  Other than that in terms of Legends, think I also sold a couple wave 2 Caps and that's about it.

So if Hasbro shipped entire case assortments of Stormtroopers....or a case split evenly between A.I.M Scientists and Hydra Goons you'd have had no problem moving them?

Oh yeah, without a doubt.  I think most of the e-tailers would agree.

That was one good thing with Mattel/DCUC - you could order the solid packs of the figures.

It's a shame Black Cat didn't make it to the shelves where I live. Or if it did, was purchased almost immediately. Same issue with Black Widow. And even sadder that I can still find that piece of shit character -- Hope Summers -- on pegs. Obviously, Hasbro has no clue.

To be fair, that seems as much a demand issue as anything.

Well that's my point. Why produced an untested newb like Hope, when there are plenty of other characters collectors actually want and will buy? Another sad point is that Hope was actually a nice-looking figure. But it's a character I have no desire to own.

I know she was tied to a contemporary story, but that didn't boost the demand for the figure.

In the past couple of years Marvel Legends have shown but not released more figures that I wanted than I've actually bought. It used to be I'd happily buy the one or two per wave I didn't want, now I generally only want one or two and that usually includes the BAF. I don't know how it is they get it so wrong.

Nothing really there for classic fans except Strye (but he's not from a period of X-Men that I care for) and Magneto. And yeah, this doesn't look substantially better than the first one ToyBiz did.

Would have been nice to finally see Polaris. I hope that if they do her now, she's not in the new yellow X-Factor outfit. I don't have a problem with that design -- but I don't one a figure representing it until we have a classic version first. I'm okay with that Storm, though I'd prefer Cockrum version -- as I stopped buying Marvel Selects.

So the Jubilee wave is dead then? I'm kinda skeptical that this new X-Men line will see the light of day.

Because then collectors like me who have every figure will have to wait even longer for Polaris, Dazzler, Enchantress, etc, etc.

The days of Marvel Legends like Blackheart and Abomination are long gone. Here on out it will be small figures that can be produced with little to no new tooling of characters that have a brand recognition such as Wolverine & Mags because of X-Men: DoFP which is Hasbro having to bow to retailer pressure.

Storm probably fits the minority slot and Stryfe....well, who knows why? Maybe he just looks "cool" for the kiddies?

I couldn't care less for the character. didn't like back in X-Tinction Agenda and don't now. But I will take any new character from 616 over a redux like Magneto or another variant of the IronSpiderVerine. Do we need a new Storm? Sure, but I'd take Mantis or Moondragon first.

OK so buying Stryfe, Cyclops, Storm and Magneto helps send the message that we do want Marvel Legends at retail but really don't need more Wolverines ... but I end up spending $60 on Jubilee plus three figures I don't want.

Didn't SD COMICS say something about comic accurate GOTG figs being in the works?  I believe it was mentioned that they were older versions.

A computer rendered prototype of Star Lord was shown at SDCC using the AIM trooper parts. The notable part is the torso featuring the chest flaps.

It seems to be purely driven by pleasing the big bricks and mortar stores. If they don't "Feel it" then Crapsbro has no choice but to shift the assortment around until Walmart, etc, are comfortable that they have a wave of figures that they can sell to Moms and their kids.

Getting it on ebay is everyone's best bet. People always go on about how they can't afford to go to SDCC to buy these sets -- it will cost you less to buy it online than it will for travel, hotel, ticket and food if you go to the convention. As for missing out on the convention ... that's what you do when you wait in line to buy the ticket that let's you know what time and day to get in another line to wait to buy these things. Unless you're in the right place at the right time you're missing out on the actual convention just so you can buy this stuff.

But I'd be buying so much other cool shit and soaking up the atmosphere. Talking to creators, taking a break and grabbing a beer at Bub's bar, etc.

Part of the joy of going in 2011 was picking up all those extra exclusives for my peeps. Yeah I had to wait in line, but being able to buy extra Swamp Things for Big Raj, Scotty, Niteowl, etc, was a pleasure. Even managed to get the exclusive Monster High figure for Starman's daughter and picked up an Indy comic for Dozy and get it signed for him.

What we need is for someone to nail Hasbro Toy Shop and order 20 of them. Then start distributing them. Not only would I pay in advance for that, but I'd even be happy to pay a handling fee for their trouble.

But you're already there and doing other things. These people seem to only want the exclusives and if that's the only reason they want to go, they'd be paying a lot more just to get them than they would if they got the stuff on ebay. The point is whether you want to go to the convention but can't afford it, or you just want the exclusives, ebay is less costly and less frustrating.

Why is this a bad thing?  I really don't give a rats ass who gets what exclusive.  Just as long as they put the shit out somewhere.  If its another Spidey wave, then I have far less interest, as I'm sure it will suck.  Someone thought it was a good idea to put that Superior Spidey 2 per case after all.   ::) [moon]  But if its a regular Legends wave, we could get Bulldozer, Tiger Shark, and Radioactive Man, at that could only be a good thing.

Since I can't find a thread, I'll just add this here.

This will effectively kill the Marvel 3.75 scale.  That fucking 3 pack is on clearance EVERYWHERE!  YOU CAN STILL FUCKING FIND IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  And now they're going to put them out single carded?  WHO THE FUCK IS MAKING THESE DECSIONS AT HASBRO!  What a complete and total fucking waste.  FUCK YOU HASBRO!

My reaction certainly isn't worthy of 20pt font, but yeah this is puzzling.  The couldn't throw Northstar in here?  I'm also curious if they made some poor Chinese kid rip open all of the 3-packs that got returned to fill these.

Mmmm, not quite, actually.

You'll see, an item that is marked to be an Exclusive to certain USA stores can find it's way to normal chains elsewhere out of the USA.

At least sometimes. I do have some examples of Hot Exclusives that locally went into  regular store chains, like several Halo figures (one of which was also a Walgreens Exclusive), NECA Predators and even some of the Iron Man 2 and Avengers figures from the Marvel Legends range.

Yes. It did kind of ruin my enthusiasm for the line. I though perhaps it was only my set, but I noticed various video reviewers pointing out the same thing.

Yeah, it was really noticable on Starlord.  Real flimsy joints (not quite as bad as ML14) and his upper left arm wasn't connected on one side to the elbow.  Hot water fixed that, but I shouldn't have to do that at $20 per figure.

Just read that GotG are hitting Walmarts (including separate displays).  Didn't notice them at the WM I stopped at before work, but hopefully I'll have a Groot soon.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread

yeah there's some sort of counter griot toy that looked about 6 inches but I didn't pay too muc attention to it.i got iron man,Gamora nova and Starlord today and yes the plastic seems cheaper and the elbows weaker,I'm focusing more on marvel select as my main marvel line,legends always tend to disappoint.by the way there's a new MS Hulk at the Disney store,a first appearance one.

I can't believe Stryfe is the only one I want from this wave. I'll get the usual full wave for my buddy from Mike, and if I see Stryfe in the wild I'll pick him up.

I really have to decide whether Jubilee, a character i never gave a wet shit about, is worth the $40 to be stuck with that garbage Storm and Cyclops. 

So many X related characters we need, or need an update, and they make another fucking Wolverine and Cyclops.  With the very limited amount of figures made per year, I really wish they wouldn't waste our time with shit like this.

I know they aren't officially Legends, but more 6 inch Marvel Comics toys is a good thing, yes? I was beginning to wonder if there would even be a toy line for this film.

...and it's not even the "good" Jubilee with the blue shorts, etc.

That Cyclops is an abomination.....but that Storm is an improvement over the previous one. That said, if Hasbro released new versions of figures to replace badly done figures then we'd get half the figures again.

Post by: JerseyManiac! on July 09, 2014, 10:36:19 pm
I don't know.  I'm all for a GOOD upgrade.  Like the Blackbolt that's coming out.  That's a HUGE upgrade.  I think the Cyclops they just put out was really good too.  I would love a good Vision, Daredevil, Bishop, Cable, Nightcrawler, Rogue....the list goes on, using the new Hasbro bodies.  But, you're right, we need some new stuff too.  If they tell me at SDCC they are just going to release all the shit they've shown and then not put in the last few years, I'd be happy. 

My friend who owns a comic shop goes to SDCC every year and takes pre orders.  He wants $165 for the Marvel Legends box.  I'm tempted to just wait, as the Thunderbolts box was going for around $100 for most of the year.  But the X-Force box goes as high as $200 these days.  I guess I'm just gonna get it for the guy.  Fuck it.

Compared to other releases like the Boba Fett, I though it stayed available for while a long while. Also there was a brief period where it made a comeback. I recall letting a friend know who wanted a replacement set, and he was able to get one through HTS a few days later.

I could be mistaken, but I think if anything is going to sell out lickity-split, it will be the Jabba with Salaciious Crumb.

But  if the Tbolts set went "fast" from your perspective, I can't imagine it will be much different this year.

I don't believe Hasbro hasn't figured out how do this right yet.  They usually go on sale the day after SDCC, but if memory serves, they came out a day late last year.  Guys online all day hitting refresh like we have nothing better to do.  If they weren't completely useless assholes, they would pick a date and time and stick to it. 

And I would love to get that Jabba.  But I'm not paying the ebay price, and I'm not sitting at the computer all day.  So fuck them.

Adam Biehl (vice president, Global Marvel Line at Hasbro), Jesse Falcon (director of hardlines, Marvel), Dwight Stall (senior Marvel product design manager, Hasbro), Bobby Vala (Marvel product designer, Hasbro), and Laura Guilbault (senior manager, Global Marvel Line at Hasbro) discuss Hasbro's popular Marvel action figure lines. Attendees will also get a sneak peek at upcoming action figures. Adam, Jesse, Dwight, Bobby, and Laura will also host a Q&A for your burning Marvel action figure questions!

And everytime I see his name, I'm reminded of how much I would like to fight Dwight Stall.  Even more that TG, I would love to beat the living shit out of ole Dwight, and finish it up with a Five Star Frog Splash. 

The feelings of deep loathing and hatred are renewed every year when I watch that Shartimus Prime fuck head interview him, and he tells me that they are still looking for ways to get the figures they showed 2 years ago out.  Some of them have made their way out, but most have not.  Still no Rogue, no Tiger Shark, no Sentry, and no fucking BULLDOZER!  Yet 3 Captain Americas, lord knows how many Iron Men, an abomination of a Cyclops and Storm have come out.  I wonder how much they'll show this year that will never make it out?

So we're gonna see Avengers and Spider-Man waves.  Hopefully Radioactive Man will still come with Tiger Shark...or even better yet, BULLDOZER!  And that's a fine looking Ms Marvel as well.  I literally just brought my MOC Toybiz version up from the cellar a few days ago.  Now I will put it back. 

If the Avengers line is stuffed full of movie horseshit, i'm gonna be REALLY pissed!  They just made a shit ton of Caps, a Black Widow, and lord knows we never need another Iron Man figure EVER!  PLEASE make this a good wave you cockfaces!

Dude, any way they find to get more than 4 waves a year out is a good thing.  My only problem with that 3 pack is that its really a 2 pack.  Ultimate Cap can go fuck himself.  I doubt that thing would sell for more than $5 on ebay.  Might as well throw it out. 

And Target exclusives are the best by far!  Someone here will find it for you. 

NOW PUT TIGER SHARK AND BULLDOZER IN THE FUCKING AVENGERS WAVE!

I was just telling a friend last night that I don't care for redoes. If Toy Biz did it I don't need an update so didn't buy the latest Black Cat, didn't care if that Sentry never came out, don't really care about the new Ms. Marvel ... then I saw this Scarlet Witch  :D


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: JerseyManiac! on July 24, 2014, 06:17:12 pm
That Scarlet Witch is truly fantastic. 

I have never heard of Machine Man?  Is he new?

I LOVE that Sentry.  The Toybiz version was one of the worst figures I've ever seen

And YEA!  Another THOR!  One the same body as the other 2.   [thumbs down] [moon]

Odin looks cool.  I don't need it, but I'll take it. 

And seriously, what is that last one?

Last time I went to my not so local LCS, I brought one of these issues up to the counter just to ask the owner if Marvel was serious with this.  If they make a figure of this abomination, I'm quitting collecting.

Anyway, so who do you guys think should be in the Spider-Man wave?  What decent Spidey villain have they not made yet? 

And I think its pretty funny that they think the Superior Spider-Men will be off the shelves by 2015.   :D


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: Josey Wales on July 24, 2014, 08:22:17 pm
Puma or Prowler would be nice for a Spidey wave.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: JerseyManiac! on July 24, 2014, 08:39:10 pm
Puma would be cool. 

I really can't think of all that many unmade villains.  Cardiac, Speed Demon, Tombstone, JACKAL!!  Well shit, now really want a Jackal. 

That little bitch Dwight gave some kid on the fwoosh a hint that the BAF for the spidey wave will be "killer"  Everyone is now assuming Spider Slayer, who I had to look up.  Apparently that's what Smythe goes by these days.  They are only going to show a few figures from the Spidey Wave, and the rest of the Avengers wave should be in the case tomorrow.  And the better Hawkeye that was cut from the Wrecker wave is also in there, so that's cool

He also said there will be more box sets and such, and that getting the unreleased figures out is a top priority. 

If its a priority, where........the fuck......is BULLDOZER!


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: fishmilkshake on July 24, 2014, 08:50:40 pm

Finally a decent Scarlet Witch -- even though those boots are pulled from artistic interpretations -- not something she really wore as an Avenger. Machine Man is a nice addition, but I'm not a fan of the new Captain Marvel uniform -- especially the helmet. Plus, as PTB stated -- will we ever see these on any toy store shelf?

Still, in this twilight of super hero action figure, it's nice to see that they are trying.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread

She only wears the shitty faux hawk helmet in space or underwater. Overall, though, I just don't care for that outfit -- very generic, IMHO.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: Gardner Grayle on July 25, 2014, 09:21:47 am
Gotta say that if this is truly a dedicated comic based Avengers line, I might very well be tempted to jump in.  For traditional Avergers figures anyway.  Traditional IMHO being pre Bendis.

Avengers was my favorite comic as a teen.  It's the title that started me on collecting comics instead of just reading them once in a while.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: Gardner Grayle on July 25, 2014, 09:40:11 am
Of the approximately 60 pre Bendis Avengers, I think I'd be down for about 44.  About 27 of those have already been done in some form in 6 inch scale.  Could be fun.

Hasbro had on display some more Avengers Marvel Legends with Iron Fist and Hawkeye as well as 3 figures for their 2015 Spider-Man Legends line. Shown for Spider-Man (Comic) are Hobgoblin, Spider-Girl and Spider-Man. All the hands with Spider-Man may or may not come with the figure but he will come with weblines.

Captain Marvel & Scarlet Witch are swaps for the Avengers wave as well as Iron Fist and Hawkeye

You will be able to create a King Thor or Odin with the build-a-figure using swappable BAF pieces from the Avengers wave as well. If you want a King Thor and Odin figure you will have to buy doubles of certain figures to complete both. This will work similar to the Zola figure they did a year or so ago. They will have the exact same body mold except for left arm, head, color of cape and accessories. King Thor has a Destroyer left arm and all new head sculpt. He will have a Axe. Odin has a flesh colored left arm and Odin Helmet with non-removable helmet and spear.

They also had some new 3.75" Marvel Infinite Series figures on hand including Beast, Bishop, Sandman, Black Cat & Bog Time Spider-Man..

Avengers is what got me collecting Marvel. I was only a DC kid for the first six years of collecting. But I probably own more issues of Avengers than any other series -- even though X-Men became my favorite comic only months after starting to read Marvel.

Classic Avengers will always have my interest. Posters, Masterworks, figures, statues, etc. But in spite of this being an Avengers wave, it really doesn't look much like one -- especially in comparison to a couple of ToyBiz ML waves.

Post by: JerseyManiac! on July 25, 2014, 12:33:28 pm
We need a separate thread for MU. 

That Bishop pisses me off to no end.  He was the biggest hole in the line, and they completely phoned it in.  And they chose the shitty old costume. 

Sandman looks to be the only one with regular MU articulation.  No ab or waist artic is fucking brutal!  It makes it look like its from a different line.  But, I suppose this lines days were numbered anyway.

I dunno. I thought Beast was a bigger hole than Bishop. But I'm happy with them both. The old costume fits with the 90s X-Men team they've been building up in Marvel Universe. Think they're only missing Storm, Banshee; and a classic Jubilee now.

Don't like the lack of waist articulation; but glad the ab joint is gone. Having both was always unnecessary and the ab joint was always loose and broke up the costume lines of the figure.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: kcekada on July 25, 2014, 12:44:12 pm
I have some concerns with the Medusa sculpt.

1. The hair is too flat on the top -- and bangs? In 40+ years of her existence, I don't recall seeing her with bangs.
2. No mask. Again -- she rarely appeared in costume without a mask. Even the Marvel Now images have her in a mask. I guess this is based on the Marvel Knights series -- which was a good read, but not really a classic look for the character.

One step forward...

Another Cap is more useless to me than Ms. Marvel. When all people saw were a blurry video on preview night, they were hoping Vance Astro. I would have loved if that were true.

If they just make 6 waves a year like the good ole days of toy collecting, it wouldn't be a big deal.  Instead theres like three, so it blows!  The REAL Ms Marvel figure and Wanda look so very good.  I think Hasbro should do a wave of Legends every month!  Then it wouldn't be so bad when they do stupid ass things like this upcoming Spiderman wave.  That lineup couldn't be much worse so far.

Well B.A.Fs aren't big these days. That's the Phil Urich version. He recently took over the mantle of the Hobgoblin after killing the original. I then wrote an angry letter to editor Steve Whacker telling him how pissed I was that they got rid of my fave villain for the sake of it. A year later the original is back and the one Urich killed was Kingsley's brother. True story.

I doubt it man.  I bet Fury and the other 2 lackeys are a 3 pack.  It didn't say Wave 2 above them in the pic. 

I most certainly want a BAF Thanos, but even I wouldn't buy 3 boring ass Shield agents to get it.

Dwight said Bulldozer would have been in wave 1, but he wouldn't fit in the package with the Odin piece.   [gah]

Spider-Woman is completely unnecessary.  Hellcat is cool though.  Where the fuck are the villains in these waves?  Did they show one villain besides Hobgoblin? 

And yea, the MS Thanos is way better than this one.  I still don't think the Shield losers will be in the wave though. 

And somebody must know this answer.....is there a Dr Strange movie coming?

Yeah, I'm not too big on new versions of the Avengers I have unless they are a big improvement -- or a different version that I really want.

There were a couple of characters I forgot when making my list you remembers.

Monica Rambeau (I'm okay with current version if they go that route)
Jack of Hearts
Goliath (Clint Barton)
Quasar (would prefer Capullo era Quasar -- his best look, but I know that's probably not the one they'd produce).

My essential Avengers:

Iron Man
Thor
Yellow Jacket/Giant Man/Goliath/Ant Man
Wasp
Hulk
Captain America
Hawkeye/Goliath/Ronin
Quicksilver
Scarlet Witch
Swordsman
Hercules
Black Panther
Vision
Black Knight
Black Widow
Mantis
Beast
Moondragon
Hellcat
Ms. Marvel
Falcon
Wonder Man
Tigra
She Hulk
Captain Marvel (Rambeau)
Starfox
Namor
Dr. Druid
Mockingbird
War Machine
Moon Knight
Firebird
U.S. Agent
Machine Man
Darkhawk
Shroud
Forgotten One
Quasar
Sersi
Stingray
Crystal
Thunderstrike
Firestar
Jack Of Hearts
Ant Man (lang)
Rick Jones/Marv-Vell two pack
Two Gun Kid
Jocasta
Spider Woman (Drew)
Dr. Strange
Iron Fist

More or less.  ;D

Post by: kcekada on July 28, 2014, 07:09:40 am
Is it really?  What the hell are they gonna show at the Panel?

And which Hobgoblin is that?  The last time I saw him, he was in the Sinister Six, NOT BAF size, and certainly not a sword wielder. 

Well B.A.Fs aren't big these days. That's the Phil Urich version. He recently took over the mantle of the Hobgoblin after killing the original. I then wrote an angry letter to editor Steve Whacker telling him how pissed I was that they got rid of my fave villain for the sake of it. A year later the original is back and the one Urich killed was Kingsley's brother. True story.

Yeah, after Stern left ASM, some asshat took over the series and brough the Hobgoblin storyline to an abrupt and unsatisfactory ending. And then it just got worse. Did Stern update the story with Kingsley's brother being the one who took the fall? I can't recall any more.

Apparently Avengers 2 wave includes Movie, Fury, Coulson and Maria Hill. B.A.F is Thanos.

Easy pass for me.

Oh Cripes! How do you fuck up an Avengers wave that badly? Apologies to his fans, but Coulson is a mort. Maria Hill has been done before -- and she ain't that great, IMHO. And I don't need to replace my MS Thanos.

Stern did do the Hobgoblin mini which established Kingsley as the Hobgoblin and was very much alive after the whole Leeds debacle.

Is Hellcat part of an Avengers line-up? I think they could sneak Nighthawk in there as well -- maybe for 2016? Hellcat looks decent, but I don't like that they went with more of a Batgirl cowl than the one she wore in the early days (that was closer to the Cat's cowl). But, really, this one is out of left field -- and I'm thrilled.

Post by: derekwc on July 28, 2014, 06:55:28 pm
Just my quick two cents:

I can understand some disappointment in re-dos (for me other than Gamora the whole GotG five pack seems like a waste), especially when I first heard of it, they were described as a "Classic" Guardians five pack, when they were just the Abnet and Lanning crew (who are great, but we've got 3 of them already, why not Jack Flag, Mantis, Moondragon or Bug? Or Vance Astro even!)

Although I've never gotten a Spidey 2099 and that new one looks tons better than either of the previous releases. So that works out alright for me.

Hellcat and Machine Man were nice surprises. And I don't really consider different costumes or looks re-dos, so if Star Lord in the boxset ends up being his Classic look or something, that'd be fine by me. So I guess I'm not bothered by the movie Maria Hill or Thanos.
Though I wish they could have put an agent May head in with the Hill. That would have been cool.

Between me and my buddies, we jokingly guessed most of the revealed Spider-Man wave.

Would have liked a Dark Ms. Marvel in the 3 pack. Oh well.

Magik being announced is great news for me. Though it makes me wish the recent Magneto released was the "Snow White" version to match.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: fishmilkshake on July 28, 2014, 07:38:52 pm
I have two theories about Hellcat. The first is that she's cheap and easy to do. No major tooling. The second is that she's next up on Bendis' boner list. He's resurrected Spider-Woman and now Carol Danvers. It wouldn't surprise me if one of the figures coming down the line is Dazzler.

I'd take Gilgamesh or Nighthawk, but it all comes down to tooling. It's gotta be cheap and easy. Clea? Maybe? Then again the name alone means you won't get a Son of Satan.

I'd be up for a High Evolutionary. Don't think it needs to be a BAF, though.

As far as Avengers go, I'm usually happy when they make someone from the Perez Poster.

Classic GotG
Mockingbird
Mantis
Swordsman
Stingray
Deathcry
Sersi
Rage
Quasar
Crystal
Gilgimesh
Starfox
Thunderstrike
Darkhawk
Rambeau Capt Marvel
Moondragon
Living Lightning
Jocosta
Barton Goliath
Firebird
Two Gun Kid

And if they'd make them, I'd gladly take Justice and Firestar. Wouldn't mind the exact versions of Red Jumpsuit Hank Pym and Jae Lee Namor either.

Gilgamesh was in my first issue of Avengers:

That's the run that made me drop Avengers after collecting it from issue 141! As good as Walt Simonson's Thor was -- his 'Avengers' was a mess. His Fantastic Four wasn't much better -- even though he was drawing that.

I have a decent b&w version of the Wonder Woman poster that I could color and enlarge if I ever get ambitious. Honestly, all but 2 or 3 of my posters remained rolled up in cardboard containers. I think the biggest one is Alex Ross's MARVELs poster.

So, I may try for that Blaastar/Inhumans/Gladiator set if it goes on sale this afternoon. But I have no interest in this version of Blaastar (and only limited interest in the classic interpretation). Frankly, he looks like Lobo with gray skin.

While both artists are of the classic breed, their styles are quite different. I prefer Perez, but like Chooch, I grew to appreciate Kirby. I hate, though, when artists like Rich Buckler tried to ape Kirby's style. You get awkward poses without the urgency of Kirby. I think Perez took Kirby's urgency and applied a more aesthetic style.  And Lee is very similar to Perez/Buscema, etc. -- except that he applied a more modern aesthetic (at the time). These days, those styles aren't that appreciated by younger readers who seem to like more of a looser/cartoony or indy approach.

Nice!! It doesn't matter how much it cost. If it's something you will genuinely enjoy then go for it.

I've read all sorts of stuff by Kirby and I don't care for abut 90% of it, so I guess I'm an asshole too. Ditko does nothing for me either.
Perez is among my favorite artists, but I obviously have no taste because I like Alex Ross too.

Keeping in mind that during that busy period in the mid-60s, Kirby was drawing up to 6 pages a day. The quality of his work depends on the 'when'. I've always thought that his best work was on Journey into Mystery/Thor where he took his time and was quite experimental.

Whether you actually like Jack's work or not, you have to admit that without him, comics would look very different today.  Personally, I have a hard time reading his dialog.  His captions aren't much better.  But when it comes to visual storytelling, there are few better.  And in terms of concepts, there are none better.  The New Gods (and related books) are years, even decades ahead of their time.

Agreed. Kirby's ideas and artistic contribution are second to none. His dialogue on the other hand....

His dialogue is still better than Jim Shooter's. Re-read some of his Legion the other day. It was really really bad. Sure, he was still a teenager when he wrote it but geez, it was lame..the whole '(choke)' to convey teen angst made me cringe every time.

He was a great storyteller and conceptual artist. His posing was a bit over the top, but just about every artist in the Bronze Age was using the sense of urgency he introduced -- though with a less-stylized.

One thing that really detracted from his art was his faces. Everyone he drew looked like they had been beat with an ugly stick.

Hmmm....

So, I may try for that Blaastar/Inhumans/Gladiator set if it goes on sale this afternoon. But I have no interest in this version of Blaastar (and only limited interest in the classic interpretation). Frankly, he looks like Lobo with gray skin.

Must have just squeaked in before the pulled the plug. Damn site wouldn't take may atlanticbb.net email address -- and had to use gmail account.

Not sure why I ordered this -- but as a diehard Dave Cockrum fan, Gladiator is a must-have toy for me. Will probably sell Blaastar on ebay. Maybe Star-Lord too.

Frankly, Medusa and Gladiator should have been in a regular wave long ago. It's shit like this set that makes Hasbro looks like a bunch of asshats. But I didn't want to regret passing on this (mainly for Gladiator and Medusa). I'm pretty sure I'll end up reselling the entire set -- thought I could probably make more selling the figures loose.

Those are the same two that I want. I thought about buying the set and selling the remaining figures but I just didn't want to mess with it. I buy a shit ton on eBay but I'm not a fan of selling.

That StarLord will almost certainly be the one that shows up in the "Classic" set down the track.

My Thanos set is on the way and if that Gladiator can't hold up to my custom then it's gone.

Post by: JQ3x29yz4a on August 05, 2014, 09:10:08 pm
I like all of the figures in the set but ...

Medusa - though I would have preferred any of her classic costumes, I'm fine with this. What I don't like is that neck. Those forward-hinge necks always look awful.

Black Bolt - much better than the previous version. The wings look great!

Star Lord - I wondered why he was included in the set but figured the movie version is going to become the comic version. Then the comic 5 pack was announced and this costume was shown. I can't imagine it will be different, but now is the time to get on the boards and let Hasbro know maybe his real classic look is what they should put in that set.

Gladiator - In the early days of Marvel Legends he'd be a natural in a regular wave, now I'm not so sure. It's a really nice looking figure though and I'm glad to have him in this set.

Blastaar - can't say I care for the look but it's a very nice figure, and glad to get a third Fantastic Four character in this set since I doubt we'll be seeing an FF wave anytime soon.

I'd prefer a classic Medusa too, but the plus with this figure is it comes with hair I don't need to sculpt. Swapping doies shouldn't be too hard.

I'm happy with this Blastaar. His original Kirby look wasn't much more than a blue wrestling leotard. He's had this modern look for awhile now.

I would have tried harder to get Satana if she looked like classic Satana. The version from Thunderbolts just looked like a generic sorceress. And I was never fond of Moonstone's white leotard -- especially in comparison to her golden armor and helmet. I did expect that Moonstone, Ghost and Luke Cage would make their way to retail. Silly me.

Hello,

The purpose of this message is to inform you that we will be experiencing a preorder shortage. Diamond Comics offered us the X-Men Legends - Previews Exclusive - Set of 5 with BAF Jubilee and we then listed preorders. We have just been informed that these pieces will be heavily allocated and our purchase order is now for less than 50% of what we requested. If you are able to order this item from another resource, please explore your options accordingly. If nothing materializes after our shipment arrives we will likely have to cancel your preorder, which we very much apologize for, we simply were not expecting our order to be so severely allocated.

At this time due to these allocations, all existing multiple-quantity preorders will be limited to 1 piece only, which will reflect in the Preorders section of your BBTS account. All preorders will be processed in the order that they were received, so the earlier your preorder was placed the better chance it will fill. Again, we will certainly do our best to fulfill all preorders, but cannot guarantee this due to the allocations that have occurred.

Thank you for your understanding and thank you again for buying from BigBadToyStore!

Sincerely,

BBTS Customer Care

So maybe I won't be getting this either....

Thats ridiculous!  Clearly not BBTS fault, but what the fuck!

Glad I got these today.  I was informed by the very helpful woman at my TRU that my strore would not be getting them at all.  She told me that next closest store got 8 in today.  This other store is filled with the laziest, most unhelpful people on the planet, but I called anyway.  They are not off the truck, and call back in an hour.  *Sigh*  Call back again in an hour, and somehow I got the one helpful person in the store to find the box and hold the 4 I want.  I fly down there on my lunch break, risking getting back late.  Another woman was there asking for these figures, and the doochebag from the back room almost gave her the whole box!!!  I had to make a stink for a minute, and then the helpful employee came and said that 4 of them were mine.  Crazy shit I tell ya.  I would have freaked the fuck out if I had arrived later and they told me they had sold them.  Reviews.....

First, they are made out of the "good" plastic, and not the horseshit they used to make the GOTG figs.

1.  Storm - selling immediately minus the BAF piece.  Garbage

2.  Cyclops - selling immediately minus the BAF piece - REALLY garbage.  Who thought that costume was a good idea?

3.  Magneto - very disappointed with the face.  It doesn't look like him at all.  He looks like a grumpy old grandpa. 

4.  Stryfe - awesome figure.  The sword is REALLY tiny, but who needs it anyway. 

5.  Jubilee - everyone of you that bitched about this worthless character for the lat 100 years can finally SHUT UP!!! 

Altogether, this wave sucks.  By far the worst since they started making them again.  If they're really rare, I might sell all but Stryfe.  We'll see.

Found these by happenstance. Stock girl said supposedly there were more at San Mateo and Dublin. No way in hell was I driving to Dublin at this hour. But I went across the bridge to San Mateo for shits and giggles. Nothing. Asked one of the clerks and brought in the item for him to scan and look up. Their computer said there were 6 on the floor, but of course there was NAHZING!!!!

To be honest, I usually never see this stuff at stores. It's why tried to order them online and failed, then ordered them through BBTS and failed.

Was on the phone with another store for about 30 minutes. They see the items in their computer, it tells them (like the other store) that they have 8, but when they do the floor check, there's nothing there.

Oh well. 2 down, 3 to go.

Don't worry about me - if you can find it, go for it.  I did get my order in early with my distributor so I'm hoping it comes through.  If you can find them from somewhere else though go for it.  Sounds like they might be harder to find so I can always sell your set on eBay for vast sums  >:D

Not looking for any of these. If I see a Magneto on the shelf, I'd probably pick it up -- as I don't any other Magneto figures.

As usual, whenever I stop at Wally (about every other week), I make a quick visit to the toy department -- just to see if there are any new figures. To my surprise, the Spider-Man wave was replenished with a Black Cat figure. It's a nice figure, but the boobs are a bit ridiculous. Dave Cockrum designed the original look (which is part of my fascination with the character), and as a bit of a perv -- even he didn't let that get in the way of a good design. So, this makes the 3rd Black Cat figure in my collection. I recall really liking the 5-inch ToyBiz version back in the day, but looks kinda crude now. I also have the Marvel Select version, but I never really like the bangs on that one -- and I prefer the fur as Cockrum designed it -- over the Dodson revision. So, now I'm hoping that Black Cat appears in the next Spider-Man film -- so I can get a decent price for the MS figure on ebay.

Alright folks, what are you bastards looking for?  Do you want a Stryfe or Cyclops if I see it?  Or is everybody only after the 2 rare ones?

Appreciate the gesture my good man. I'll wait for Mike S on the Jubilee wave. Other than that I'm fine

I got my Thanos Imperative set today. Very mixed bag. Scott and I review the set on ep 130 of the podcast.

Went to a few more TRUs today and saw the usual Wolverine, Cyclops or nothing. The last one I went to amazingly had Magneto and Storm. So now I only need one more of those two, or more properly the parts they come with. I really don't want the figures :)

Thanos Imperative Box Set Right-Outta-The-Box Review

OK I've had Galactus' deathly grin looking at me for weeks and it's finally time to open up the set. That says a lot right there, normally I'd be sitting on the living room floor in my 'roos playing with these the first morning after the convention. Anyway ...

Blastaar - big impressive figure! Great head sculpt -- limited articulation but it's enough. Articulation is great on the rest of him. His attire sucks though. I just don't get the biker look. Big metal shoes, fine whatever. Kneepads, eh ok. A spiked leg band? What the hell for? And what's the purpose of screws as belt decorations? And jeans with back pockets? The version they did for Marvel Universe scaled up is what we should have gotten, but then it wouldn't fit the theme which is a weird one anyway.

Medusa - with Chicken-Neckin' Action! Wow right out of the tray she's giving neck attitude. That is some seriously weird articulation. She can actually look straight down which I guess lets her reach back and wrap the curl at the end of her hair around someone's neck, but it's at the expense of having that neck gash that never looks good. How cool would it have been to instead articulate her hair so it swiveled up and then around so she could actually look at her attacker, or sweep it around 360? Her legs are kinda wobbly too, thin legs need strong plastic. She needs to rest on her hair to stand but then you have to put her in weird positions. Her costume is ok but I'd prefer any of several she's worn before.

Black Bolt - wow do I love this figure! He's a bit small though. What's with the feet? They're tiny and I can't get him to stand right. OK putting him in weird poses helps so it can be an Inhuman thing with him and Medusa. Love the face sculpt! The wings are perfect! So much better than the previous one!

Star-Lord - really looks great, not my favorite look for the character though. I really love the paint detail on the mask, just a tiny bit of slop on the eyes that you can only see if you look hard. The jodhpurs came out nice. He holds his guns pretty well!

Gladiator - the one I've been waiting for! He's a bit floppy out of the tray though. Seems a bit short, I guess it's because he's stocky. Big heavy cape doesn't let him stand well. Another weird pose. Head is forward swivel with ball jointed head so that helps with the posing. Great sculpt and great paint! Just a bit disappointed though.

Looking at all of these I thought there's not one that couldn't be re-released at retail with some changes. I wonder if that's the plan. Star-Lord we know will be, and the rest all have other costume options. If they do that and they get better costumes I may regret having bought this set.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: JerseyManiac! on August 16, 2014, 11:10:29 pm
I just got mine too.  I agree with just about all of your review.  My Gladiator stands just fine, but I'm gonna need to find those stands that came with wave 3 for Medusa.  They should have had her hair go all the way to the floor to act as a stand.  A lot of the joints are gummy, and others are a little loose, which blows.  And Star Lord seems a little too big to me.  Overall, a decent set.

Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Right-Outta-The-Box Review

Rocket Raccoon - Wow ... he's a bit small. I mean I know he's supposed to be but for the past couple of months I've been seeing that Galactic Battlers version with the pull-back action and he's a nice size and I figured the Legends version would be bigger. Also his gun is kind of plain, all one gold color instead of gray, blue and red like the other one. Maybe the scale is accurate but I think I prefer the other figure. Great sculpt though.

Drax - looks pretty good even though I don't care for the character design. The tattoo scar things are very well done. Nice that you can put his knives in the boot sheaths.

Nova - beautiful figure. Bright shiny pearlised paint and swivel jointed shoulder pads. I prefer the older Nova figure but this one really is a much better one.

Gamora - hmm. Marvel Legends has been doing very well with actor likenesses but in this case something's a bit off. Nice enough though. She's having a hard time holding her sword.

Iron Man - I love it! I love any Iron Man armor. Not the best design really but the figure looks great in pearlised red plastic. One pauldron keeps popping off though.

Star-Lord - wow that is some ridiculous hair on the unmasked face. His headphones don't even fit right over that mop. Lots of small accessories that'll easily get lost. Looks pretty good overall though.

Groot - what a great figure! Excellent sculpt with little new branches every where. Great detailing. And 28 points of articulation! Love it!

I'll have to give that a listen.  I think Gladiator looks great, but it would have been nice to see a few costume details sculpted. The painted-on belt seems kinda cheap. In fact, he, Medusa and Black Bolt are all nude bodies with paint details. I know Medusa is accurate to the Thanos Imperative story, but she looks weird without a mask.

Star-Lord looks okay. Was never a fan of that version, but at least it's not Chris Pratt in a trench coat (and I'm a big CP fan).

Didn't even bother to look at Blastaar. I may just pull him out of the package and sell him on ebay.

I don't have any in hand yet, but I've confirmed that one of the stores in town has 8 in stock. I went there yesterday but they couldn't find the case since it was buried in the 'mountain of boxes' in the stock room. They took my name and number and told me they would try to call me when they come across the case. I will be checking the store in another day or so regardless. I'll let you guys know!

Was surprised to see that the Groot wave had landed at one of the local Wallies. But the only evidence of it was Iron Man, so I don't know if there are more in the back -- or it's all that was left? I'd probably pick up the DnA Nova if I saw one in person, but if not -- money saved.

The Walmarts here have space on the pegs for the GotG series plus the Legends are also included in a floor display. When I was there last weekend,  only Iron Man was on the pegs but every figure in the series was in the floor display, in multiples. So you may want to check for that. Nova is a great figure!

Of course - 2x Iron Man and 2x Star Lords per case.

Post by: kcekada on August 26, 2014, 07:10:13 am
The smaller Wally in the area got these in the past few days.

Gamora is as disappointing as expected. Frankly, the character design isn't that strong. I think her best look was her original -- where she wore that gator-skinned leotard with gold chain and gold skulls that clasped her shaggy cape. These days, she's in generic armor -- and really, can't we just go back to Starlin's original design

Nova is the star of the wave -- and thankfully we get a comic-book version of a character that wasn't in the film. I guess that's true of Iron Man as well, but who but the most dedicated Iron Man fan can keep track of his disposable sets of armor?

I don't recall seeing Rocket, but Drax and Star-Lord are okay. The DnA Star-Lord or even the outfit the comic book version was wearing up until a few months ago are a much better look than what the movie introduced -- though it worked for the movie.

Agreed. Gamora's movie look is dull. There's numerous versions I'd have preferred. Really hoping they nail it with the "Classic" set.

Nova is a great looking figure. I found a bunch of Nova figures fromt he Spidey series going cheap so I've got some Nova Corps going now.

It's not a good likeness at all. I'm going to brighten up her hair a bit with some fuchsia.

In the comic set I hope we get the swimsuit version. I hated the fur fishnets hooker look and the current stormtrooper armor is awful.

Off topic, yet on topic.  I opened my MOTC Flutterina last night.  How is it that Mattel can make a female with long hair, and huge wings, yet can still stand happily on a shelf, and Hasbro cannot.  Emma doesn't stand, Jean Grey REALLY doesn't stand, and Medusa REALLY can't stand.  When are they gonna figure out that these woman are pretty much worthless if we can't display them. 

And that second Gamora would be my vote as well.  She is the worst female fig they've made so far, and oddly enough, the ONLY one that stands just fine.

The second one is better than what she's currently wearing, but it doesn't say deadliest woman in the universe. That first one is scary -- and that's why it's my preference.

If the "fishnet" look was sculpted -- it would make for very cool figure, but therein lies the problem. I'm expecting the bikini with cape.

Scott, did Randy Bowen ever do Gamora? I'd guess she'd be on the short list if the license is renewed.

Black Cat is the worst for me. Due t a warped leg she really has no hope of standing on her own. Like most of those female figs she's precariously balancing against another figure.

Ah I don't think there's anything wrong with the depiction of women in comics, other than people like to complain. No more than the depiction of men anyway. I mean how many men are as super ripped as half the heroes or would dress in skin tight spandex; or little underwear like Martian Manhunter? I mean what self-respecting man would dress in red straps, blue underwear; and blue booties in their own home (other than arguably Psy), let alone in public fighting crime.

Though I guess more women dress like that at the beach, or comic-con or Halloween than men. Though I did dig Blis' Namor costume last year.

Yeah, but take a look at how much skin women show at the beach, or a club, or on Halloween; or at a Comic Con compared to men. Women DO wear those sorts of outfits in public when they can. Couldn't tell you if they're self-respecting or not; but to act like they don't is just incorrect.

I think if you were to count the Masters of the Universe comic, that might even things up a bit on men wearing less than women. Teela & Sorceress may wear more than half the male cast combined. ;)

And let's not forget Dr. Manhattan. :o

When I say no self-respecting woman, I was talking about the Gamora outfit with the crotch so thin it would actually be riding into her vajayjay. :)

Comics portray both men and women with unrealistic body types, but do you really think that men and women are equally objectified in comics and in geekdom in general?

She's actually pulling her pants UP there Scotty.

And that's really the issue with female cosplayers, isn't it?  Yes, they spend forever on costumes of their favorite characters, which is great that they are capable of enjoying the collecting hobby that way.  I certainly can't do it because I can't even patch socks.  But they dress in outfits that make strippers look overdressed and then wonder why they've been objectified.

I'm NOT saying that it's right NOR am I saying they shouldn't do so as long as they are aware of the potential risks (Not that there should be risks, we SHOULD be better than that, but it's painfully obvious that the human race still has a way to go.).  It's the same anywhere.  If a girl has big boobs and is wearing a top made of dental floss and cocktail napkins, she's going to get attention from people she didn't necessarily mean to attract.

That's always been something that's bothered me about the "sexual harassment umbrella" of charges- a woman wishes to dress provocatively for one person- everything primped and squeezed into an outfit 2 sizes too small, spilling out of it everywhere, gets mind-bogglingly upset because she's gotten attention from more than the person she dressed to impress.  Well... duh!




Anyway, since I've lost the thread of what I was saying, I'll get down from my soapbox now.

I get all that but it's a totally separate issue to what I'm talking about, which is the way that female characters are depicted in comics and pop culture etc.

Like this not-so-old chestnut: ;)

What's wrong with that Avengers pic as far as objectifying women? Hulk is the only character not wearing clothes and Black Widow has a full body suit. Am I missing something? ???

And to answer your question; YES I do think men and women are equally objectified in comics. And other media. The thing of it is, comics have always been marketed toward MEN. So we ignore the fact that all the male characters have perfect physiques and wear skin tight costumes. And men in general don't care when men are objectified. There is no men's lib group. If you watch something like professional wrestling, the MEN are usually wearing far less than the women. Does anyone complain? Hell I can tell you for a fact the female fans are far worse talking about the male wrestlers than the male fans are about the women in the sport.

What we as a culture are is sexist. If a real woman or female character dresses scantily we say she has no self-respect. Which is bs. Most the girls I know who dress like that if anything think TOO highly of themselves. Which is why they like showing off. And really I think a lot of people, like with most issues; like pretending to care about these issues because it's the "right" thing to do; than actually giving a shit about them.

Like you pointing out my gif... are you saying you never look at porn? Cause... that'd be some objectifying right there. And I think everyone on this site has at one point or another. ;)


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: JackKnight on August 28, 2014, 11:34:43 pm
I also agree with Hyperion. If you wear a COSTUME to a comic con, you WANT to be looked at. Otherwise what's the point? That goes for men AND women. People complaining because they're being ogled while wearing dental floss are just looking for more attention. Which was the point of the costume in the first place.

Sadly, it's why I only wear my Dr. Manhattan costume at home. Damned ogling eyes.

Now to hop down off me own soapbox.

I'm going to have to agree to disagree when it comes to comics. In other media, I see it a bit differently, for example in advertisements etc I see men sexually objectified and put down more than women. In comics to me there is still an imbalance. When Superman and Batman have huge cutouts in their gear to expose more flesh, and when I see the male characters drawn as eye candy more often, I might feel differently. :)

I dunno. I think that Black Widow pic is a reeeaaallll stretch. I mean when I looked at the pic I didn't even notice her ass. Is it sexist because she has one and it's in the pic? But then of course, people looking for things to complain about will always find them. Personally if I were selling the poster based on sexy Black Widow; I would've stuck her in Hulk's or Thor's pose in the front with a low cut top. But what do I know?

And no, I never saw either picture before this thread.

If I wanted to show examples of women objectified in comics though, I'd break out the Michael Turner artwork.

Some woman on Family Feud today mentioned there being Boob Tape. It's apparently tape that holds women's boobs in place to make them look bigger. (so men don't objectify or look at them naturally.) It may just work to keep your bits in place.

Post by: kcekada on August 29, 2014, 10:01:09 am

I dunno. Seems pretty accurate to me:

(http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/scale_super/1/12306/2489090-gamora_super.jpg)

I guess seeing it three-dimensionally underscores how over-the-top the design is. Still, they made the straps even narrower than they were in the comics. But I'd guess that if Hasbro uses this design, it will be a bit more conservative. It's funny that I've never had problems with Moondragon's first outfit, or even Saturn Girl's bikini, but you can go too far -- and suspenders as an outfit should be reserved for adult comics, IMHO.

Why would you wear all-over fishnets and wear a crappy, hairy cape? :) Seriously that old costume is one of the worst things ever designed ... despite the cute little skulls ;)


I never saw that outfit as fishnets, but that's probably what it was. It also looked more like it was made from the hyde of an alien beast -- similar to an alligator. And I figured that shaggy cape was also from a kill. It made her look dangerous. The stripper outfit makes her look ridiculous and the current armor makes her look utterly generic. I think Hasbro could make the 'bikini' work, but it will be interesting to see what they release.

I think Jack must be a bit desensitized to it. I'm probably the pot calling the kettle black, as I think people get carried away with the women in swimsuits criticisms. I can, however see their point. Ms. Marvel wore a swimsuit, while Captain American (and most of the avengers) are fully-covered.

The Avengers poster is very subtle. I don't have a huge problem with it, but the objectification of the Black Widow is definitely apparent. But there have been many examples showing men in action poses, while the women are posed provocatively. And I don't even mind it -- to some degree. Sometimes, it depends on the character. But there will always be guys like Frank Cho and Jim Balent who take it a bit too far.

Haven't given a shit about Venom since the early Eddie Brock stories and haven't read any Marvel (or DC) the last several years.  Is Agent Venom a big deal, or just a pain-in-the-ass to find figure so people want him?  All I see is another host and add some guns.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: derekwc on September 08, 2014, 01:32:37 pm
I guess it depends on how you feel about Flash Thompson.

The book was okay. There were things it dealt with that I enjoyed, but I wish they would have just let Flash be a soldier and not have a bunch of inner turmoil on the Battlefield.

I don't mind a conflicted character for dramatic purpose, but if you're already in a sniper position with the rifle, I think you should be beyond the "should I or shouldn't I pull the trigger?" debate.

It was certainly better than any solo Venom title with Eddie Brock from the 90's.

Like Derek says, it's a mixed bag. I liked the early Venom before all the overexposure and intro of Carnage, etc. The concept of Anti-Venom was actually pretty good.....then I lost teack of it alla nd now Brock is Toxin, etc. The "Agent Venom" concept is a nice way of taking a character who has been around for 50 years and giving him something other than as a background foil for Peter.

There is, but most are in the old shitty Hasbro style.  After the Avengers wave, we are down to Blade, Moonstar, Bulldozer, Batroc, Blizzard, and Tiger Shark, to go along with Rogue.  With all the upcoming movies, I'm sure they'll get to most of these.  I'd be pretty surprised if Blade didn't make it into the Dr Strange wave with Magick and Dormamu. 

And there is some speculation that Rogue is a really good custom.  Theres a thread somewhere.....Marvelousnews maybe.

Bulldozer and Blizzard could go in with an Avengers wave -- they were both in the 80s Masters of Evil. Batroc in the next Captain America wave (if there is one -- I'd like to see Steve as Nomad also).

Brilliant suggestion.  A point for you, sir.

(But ... with or without the cape?)

I prefer sans cape, but they could include a detachable one -- if someone wanted to create the scene where he got tripped. I wonder why his outfit is so horribly miscolored for his debut. I really liked the black/dark blue/yellow (gold) color scheme.

It's funny that Winter Soldier killed that guy and he's never been spoken of since. Imagine this scene at Avengers headquarters:

Cap: Hey, did you ever meet that Nomad dude? He was trying to be you in the 50's.

Bucky: ...No.

Cap: Long hair, kinda crazy? Carried a shotgun? Hung out with a baby?
 ;D
Bucky: Oh shit.

...THIS!!!  [bravo]  Poor bastard... Another great 90's character swept under the rug, like Darkhawk, Sleepwalker, and the Dan Ketch Ghost Rider!!  But at least They are still out there alive someplace!!

Darkhawk is so toyetic, and I'm surprised they never made an ML.  Now getting him made will be tough, with movie related stuff only.  Unless they just throw him in an Avengers wave. 

I really want Hasbro to make a new Moon Knight.  One that actually stands, and can move his head.  That would be nice.

Hasbro could dedicate waves to apology figures. But I don't want any more until they fill the gaps we've waiting a decades for. Polaris, Dazzler, Enchantress, Sif, etc.

...Darkhawk NEEDS to be made as an ML!  It was nice to get him in MU scale, but not enough!! >:D  ANd yes, even though I down own both Toybiz Moonknights, the Marvel Select one, and two of the MU one (one loose, one carded, can ya tell I'm a fan?!? [mwaha]), he does need a Hasbro re-do!  For one thing, he's too lanky, his build is closer to the Black Panther or MA Hawkeye buck!  Naturally, the better hip-articulation is a must, and the hood should maybe be seperate from the cape...  Also needs, truncheon, staff, AND nunchucks, and maybe swappable hands holding crescent-darts!  Hell, just throw him in a five-pack with Bushman, Black Spectre Morpheus, and Hatchet-Man, and I'll consider myself "satisfied"! ;)

That scene was a bit of artistic license. The cape simply wasn't long enough to trip him like that. Now, if it had gotten stuck in a piece of machinery or something. But athletic characters shouldn't have capes. The Batman family are the only athletes who can wear capes.

That's a modern Valkyrie -- the one with tights. The head sculpt looks great, but prototypes usually do. I passed on the 2-pack version because I didn't need a so-so Hulk and the Val figure was very underwhelming. This is an improvement, but not the classic version, so will probably pass again.

Grey Beast? Only as a variant. No interest.

http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=33114256&cp=&parentPage=search

It's huge, I'd say Legends scale, and only $20 thanks to being supported by a major motion picture release. It's a bit cartoony but better looking than the comic version. Also for $40 there's Deluxe Flying Baymax which has electronic features and comes with an also-cartoony but approximately Legends scale Hiro:

Got it.  Ms Marvel is perfect.  The Moonstone body is the only one they should use for females moving forward.  I know you don't like the apology figures Fishy, but the amount of upgrade is pretty striking in most cases.  So I'm not really bothered by them. Radioactive Man is awesome too.  The Cap isn't bad, we just don't need it. 

I hope they keep making these 3 packs.  They really need to get more figures out.

Honestly, I don't think the movie versions are that popular, but the retailers like em. Stupid retailers...

I think it's been proven time and again that the collectors are the minority and Capspiderverine sells.

Strangely, all the AIM Scientists and Hydra goons are gone from my local pegs and there's nothing left but Cap figures. Even the Red Skull and Zemo are gone.

That's just it. I think Hasbro only goes by what the retailers buy -- and not what is sold through to the consumer. The AIM scientists and female figures almost always sell out -- unless they are Hope (so much more relevant than Polaris, I guess) Summers.

That said, you need big guns to get the waves into the shops, but I will always believe that more collectors buy these than any other market.

...I know we can't expect a new X-wave until 2016 at least, but it confounds me that between Toybiz & Hasbro, we never, EVER got a 6" Nimrod!!  There's 3-4 versions of him, easy, that would have been nice as a standard or even a BAF!  Jeezus, even the movie "Future-Sentinel" would have been nice (obviously Nimrod-inspired in its face & torso!)  Hell, I'd have dug an AHAB too! >:D

There are a host of X-Men related character who never made it to 6-inch or any inch status. It's amazing that we finally got Gladiator. Still waiting for human form Beast, any version of Polaris, classic Sunfire, original Thunderbird, some key Imperial Guardsmen (we didn't even get Wolveirne in the Fang uniform as we did in the old 5-inch line). Of the New Mutants, we were supposed to get Dani -- and I think Magik was announced. Pretty spotty record.

Post by: fishmilkshake on October 16, 2014, 07:38:35 pm
There are some massive gaps that still exist. Without going to the "D" list and in no particular order, I think the following are reasonable expectations for ML.

So let's do X-Men first....

Polaris, Dazzler, Siryn, Monet, Pixie, Sunfire, Rogue, Armour, Firestar
Multiple Man, Strong Guy, Rictor, Boom Boom, Chamber, 
New Mutants - Mirage, Cypher, Wolfsbane, Sunspot, Magma, Magik, Warlock,
Starjammers, Lilandra, Meggan,

...and to a lesser extent

Darwin, Vulcan, Marrow, Sebastian Shaw, Husk, Mastermind (both)
The new X-Men kids - Dust, Rockslide, Mercury, Anole, etc.
Artie & Leech

...and a million villains.

...how much is Target charging?

$50.  If any will require my assistance, let me know. 

And I don't understand all the hate for Hope.  The Messiah Complex, War, and Second Coming are by far my favorite crossover event ever.  And that was all about Hope.  I'm happy to have a decent figure of her. 

On the other side, I don't understand all the love for Polaris.  What the fuck did she ever do?  I get that we need and ML of her and all, but there are WAY bigger holes than her.  In the world of Marvel Legends, the biggest holes are the villains side IMO. 

And they showed Magik Fishy....she's coming

And you know who make a really good ML.....Random!  A characters who's never done anything, but looks really cool.

If anybody is looking for the 3 pack, I tried the Target App. The Scan Barcode wasn't available on my Android device, but I guess it's a feature for apple stuff. Used my Dad's IPad to test it out.
(http://i.imgur.com/3TBwcly.jpg)
Scanned the Photo posted and it came up as Out of Stock in like 20 something local Targets. I'm in the California Bay Area. Don't know how accurate it is, but better than driving to a bunch of stores and coming up empty handed.

I'm sure most of you have seen this, and I couldn't be more excited.  We now have a realistic shot at getting ALL the Inhumans in ML form.  And would it be asking too much for a Man Ape?

I've really liked the Marvel movies recently, and most of these should be pretty good.  Now we have to count on Hasbro to keep doing a decent job getting us good figures.

I'm sure this is a stupid question, but does anybody have a theory as to why we're getting a SHANNA figure before KA-ZAR!??

Also, I have no use for DAZZLER as a character or figure....never have.  That said, they totally need to make a 70s/80s DISCO DAZZLER figure.  She's popular enough, so why not?

(Mockingbird anyone??) The Cap is nice too, I know it's an "Ultimates" version but it works nicely as an updated take on "classic" Cap!  Now just give us that Masters of Evil 4-pack with Batroc, Tigershark, Blizzard,  and maybe throw i.

It is Disney though. Even back then Disney owned the distribution to all those Fox Kids Marvel shows. They are well-known for limiting releases (if they are released at all).

I always figured it's b/c they milk the hell out of advertisers on ABC Family airings and whoever they partner with in the Marvel.com web videos.

Having said that, the X-Men DVD set was a strong seller and prompted the release of the entire series.

I wish I didn't have to get UK Region Specific stuff for the New Fantastic Four and that with all the damn Spider-Man movies, they'd have done...well...like all of the animated shows since the Grantray Lawrence one.

Finally took a break from the gym and ventured into Target at lunch (which ironically is next to the gym). Didn't spot this at first, but then I looked down, and there were a bunch of sets on the bottom shelf. I would love to see a Cap figure without the pouches -- how long has it been? Ms. Marvel looks good. I have the one from the Giant-Man series, but I'm sure this is a better figure -- and I've always loved the Cockrum design, so I kinda want it. Radioactive Man isn't on my want list, but it's a good-looking figure.

Still at $50 right before Christmas and just after replacing my car batter and getting a new pair of specs (that I only use in rainy/foggy weather when driving), this set is very resistible. I'll see if there is a price reduction post holidays.


Title: Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread
Post by: fishmilkshake on December 09, 2014, 04:13:58 pm
I agree.

Got mine from Engineernerd yesterday and I'm impressed with the Cap figure. It's vast improvement of the crap int he last few waves. Though it'll never replace the Face-off Cap. I'm tired of the pouches and the lace up boots. How about a new 'classic'?

Ms Marvel is a huge improvement of a character I didn't need a new figure of. I'll happily replace the old one with this one, but she's no Siryn or Polaris.

Radioactive Man is a good addition to the villain shelf. I'm not sold on the translucent plastic, but at least it's not another Red Skull or Ultron.

Got my Nroot (Not + Groot) figure and for $10 I'm pretty happy with him. It's clearly just a knock-off of the B.A.F. The neck and ab articulation are fine, there's just no articulation in the arms and legs beyond the shoulders and hips. He stands fine and I just can't see myself paying $60 more for the 'official' version.

DD:  I'm looking at a pretty sweet DD from not too long ago, so that's a bit of a chin-scratcher.
Spidey: Had to sell it to the chain store buyers, I guess.
Spidey 2099: He's had a big resurgance and the last ML was way back in the beginning, right?  Makes sense.
Spider-Girl and Spider-Woman: Easy repaints and more females - but both a bit out of fashion at the moment.  Are they swaps maybe?
Anti-Venom: Kids do love symbiotes.

I'm not too impressed, but if this is the final line-up it's all comic related and the BAF is from a pretty sweet Humberto Ramos design.  I'm in.

Well this wave blows.  I'll happily take that Daredevil, and I might get a Hobgoblin on ebay. 

Didn't they just announce a real Spider-Woman for the next Avengers wave?  What the fuck do we need the other one for?

Get the Marvel Select version. It's far superior....and isn't on that weird-ass Hyperion buck.

I'm astonished that with the Spidey Rogues gallery we get these shitty choices over Silver Sable, Hammerhead, Tombstone, Mr Negative, Cardiac, etc, etc.

The bodies and overall quality are far better than what they used to make.  I don't mind if they redo important characters.  I have a much bigger problem with the fact they a lot of the new characters they choose to make are poor choices.  Like that Spider Girl and Spider Woman.

I was wondering if there'd be a seventh figure, but the Spidey wave went with just 6, including two that were clearly meant to be swaps.  Avengers Wave 1 and the 4" line have all figures with variants in a case.  About damn time.

Grabbed the whole wave (minus Ms Marvel) at Target yesterday. They're all pretty great. Hawkeye isn't classic, but he's my new default since he's so much better than the TB version. Just wish his hands were better.

Someone on Fwoosh popped Odin's head onto the first chain mail Thor and it looks great, I'll probably do something similar.

Post by: JerseyManiac! on February 05, 2015, 06:52:04 pm
Having such a hard time at TRU now that my favorite employee isn't there anymore.  Had to fight with the manager on the phone for them to hold these for me, and they only gave me five, claiming that's all they got.   ::)  Then I went today, and one of the ones they "didn't get" was on the shelf.  I so badly want to beat the shit out of the filthy twat who works at customer service.....but I don't think that would help in the long run. 

Anyway, overall, the quality isn't that great.  All of them are very loose in the knees or the ab crunch.  Thor is worthless since they already made a perfect version a few years ago, Scarlet Witch is pretty good, but that stupid heeled boot they use ALWAYS causes problems with shelf diving.  Machine Man is alright, Captain Marvel is another worthless one, and Hawkeye is pretty good.  Iron Fist is pretty awesome, and I still need Sentry.....the only one I REALLY wanted other than Odin.  Sigh.

My TRU has about 12 Captain America figs on the pegs. You know, the recognisable character they have to have in each wave. All the army builders are long gone.

So those Odin fix-ups on Fwoosh must've gotten the creative bug to bite me bad, since I've been a busy little beaver this morning.

Odin, as-is, is pretty weak.  I loved the head on the Thor body, but I didn't just want it to look like one figure's head on another figure's body.  So I got to work:

The arms and thighs are from the original ROML Thor
The body, waist, hands, and boots are from the new Thor.
I painted his helmet and staff gold instead of that odd dull color they chose.

The scale armor on Thor has a blue-hue to it, giving it a good throwback to comic Odin, while I liked the solid black on the new Thor, opposed to the blue tinted black of old Thor.  So I got the courage to actually crack open their torsos so I could switch the arms.

It's not 100% done, I'm trying to figure out what to do with the cape. I was flipping on the cape color to use, but I'm thinking the blue one and I will then paint the buttons on the cape and on his shirt the same color gold as his helmet and staff.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v724/BoyWonder92488/71A2765C-895C-4B8A-BA4C-4E5A531421FE_zpstqbg1kbb.jpg)

Not from the most recent wave, but I've had these parts sitting around waiting to be put together for a while, so I did this today too.

Skull head, holster, hands and gun (forgot the gun in the picture)
HYDRA body and belt
AIM boots

If they were smart, they would show us AT LEAST 3 more waves this weekend....all for release this year.  And then another 3 at SDCC.  Between Marvel and SW, and Mattel not doing jack dick, they should be dominating the figure aisle. 

And I found Sentry today.  It is a truly fantastic figure.

I really can't wait for Spidey and Daredevil. I almost bit on one of the Spideys on eBay.

Hasbro should start pumping these guys out. At least toss some well put together 3 packs out.

With Avengers coming out, why not put out some Avengers 3 packs? Get out some redos of A listers like Capt and Thor (Spidey and DD show how popular vanilla A Listers can be) and toss in some auxiliary guys. Something like:

Captain America (classic costume, sculpted armor)
Vision (on one of the new Spiderman bodies)
Monica Rambeau

Thor (on the Hyperion body)
Quicksilver (Spidey body)
Jack of Hearts

Hulk (comic head on movie Hulk body)
Hawkeye (classic costume)
Quasar

Classic Avengers will always have a home in my house. Everyone from Mantis through Two-Gun Kid. Whenever I stop at one of the local Wallies, I wander over to the toy aisle. Saw a shiny purple Machine Man on the shelf and snatched it up. Also saw Captain Marvel, but I don't like that design -- and am still contemplating getting the 3-pack with classic Ms. Marvel. Hawkeye looked okay, as did Thor. No sign of Scarlet Witch -- so will try the Wally and Target in Altoona tomorrow.

In my haste to secure legs for Odin, I accidentally moved Terrax Thor to my cart & purchased him. I only noticed on the shipping confirmation. [gah] I'm a Thor-whore, so I already had the SDCC version, but not the normal one. After thinking it over, I'm gonna swap King Thor's head onto it & paint his armor gold to make him look more "Kingly" & not worry about the 2nd baf. That way Odin will be a unique sculpt in my collection & I save some change.  [thumbs up] I still want that Hawkeye tho. The first one is lacking.

That 3 pack is getting marked down to $25 at a lot of Targets, keep an eye out for that. You might have to scan it to check, they aren't always marked right.

Cool! That's what I was waiting for.  [rock]

I still want that Hawkeye tho. The first one is lacking.

I never got the first one. I had ordered it, but my money was refunded. The new figure is lacking in some way. Will have to give it another look, but Scarlet Witch is the priority in this wave -- but Machine Man is certainly a great addition. I pass on so many figures because the modern versions just don't do it for me -- that's why Boomerang was left on the pegs.

The Ant-Man wave features an Ultron B.A.F based on his Avengers 2 look.  [yess] That means an easy pass and I can cherry pick the wave.

Tiger Shark is the only one I want from that wave. I got in Iron Fist & the wrong Thor today. I despise that buck Iron Fist is on, but the hands are a nice touch. Would've preferred the green costume tho.

If Bulldozer is confirmed as part of the Ant-Man wave, I'll be super happy to complete my Wrecking Crew.

So it looks like.....

ML Wave 2 – Capt. America (Movie), Hulk (Movie), Spider Woman, Hellcat, Iron Man mark 43 (Movie), Batroc. Thanos (BAF)

ML Wave 3 – Blizzard, Dr. Strange, Vision (Movie), War Machine (Movie), Iron Man, Thundra, Valkyrie, Hulk-Buster Iron Man (BAF)

Ant Man Wave - Ant Man (Movie), Wasp, Tiger Shark, Grim Reaper, Giant Man (Movie?), Bulldozer, Ultron Prime (BAF)

3.75″ Ant Man & Ant (Worth mentioning for the giant ant it  comes with)

Spider Man Wave 2 – Scarlet Spider, Misty Night, Ghostrider (the new one?), Chameleon w/J Jonah Jamieson head swap, Kraven, Superior Venom, Rhino (BAF)

Giant Man's comic based. Heroic Age/Avengers Academy style.

If the new GR is Robbie Reyes, I'd be pretty stoked about that. Also, you couldn't exactly complain he doesn't have a bike...b/c well...he doesn't.

Wish there was a Firestar in all the Spider-Man stuff, but I'm pretty excited about the reveals.

The Now Avengers Team looks to be shaping up quite nicely. Some movie figures for those folks. Completing the Wrecking Crew and lots more classic Avengers villains. White Tiger, Thundra and New Avengers Strange look pretty boss.

I read that Vision is comic based too. AI or something...

So I'm in for....

ML Wave 2 – Capt. America (Movie), Hulk (Movie), Spider Woman, Hellcat, Iron Man mark 43 (Movie), Batroc. Thanos (BAF)

Hellcat and Batroc are a given. Both classics and looking good. I'll reluctantly get the Spider-Woman apology figure as she's a remarkable improvement. Thanos can fuck off.

ML Wave 3 – Blizzard, Dr. Strange, Vision (Movie), War Machine (Movie), Iron Man, Thundra, Valkyrie, Hulk-Buster Iron Man (BAF)

Blizzard is all kinds of awesome. Valkyrie gets a nod if she's a superior improvement to the original. Thundra is a pass because I'm happy with my custom. No need for the Hulkbuster as I'm happy with the Legendary Riders version. On the fence with Doc Strange

Ant Man Wave - Ant Man (Movie), Wasp, Tiger Shark, Grim Reaper, Giant Man (Movie?), Bulldozer, Ultron Prime (BAF)

Grim Reaper is a pleasant surprise, Tiger Shark is thumbs up. No interest in movie Ultron and I like the Ant-Man design, but not enough to pick it up.

3.75″ Ant Man & Ant (Worth mentioning for the giant ant it  comes with)

Could be a new army builder  ;D

Spider Man Wave 2 – Scarlet Spider, Misty Knight, Ghostrider (the new one?), Chameleon w/J Jonah Jamieson head swap, Kraven, Superior Venom, Rhino (BAF)

Amazing Scarlet Superior Spider 2099 is just confusing to me. I can't even tell which one's Ben Reilly and who all the variations are? The Chameleon is long overdue, though it would have been nice to have a few more head swaps like Peter, etc. Jamieson is a win because he's a suit buck away from being his own figure.

I'm interested in the Rhino BAF. The Sytsevich version from Diamond Select is unbeatable, but if this BAF allows me to build the Rhino II then cool.

What's a "Superior Venom"?

SpOCK with the Symbiote. It was around for like 2 issues.  ::)

Here's a custom somebody did:

(https://10kvma.dm2302.livefilestore.com/y2pn_zgbbJxkehPJuJGPYIGFJRCssyKAfKQOHsqVrCRqIbgJzjBBJekhmy6GnB1o9cTgQvmBkapF5Z3S57HV8lxf1Cm_fyneflSGWG64vduRYs/superior_venom3_600.jpg?psid=1)

The whole Legends/Infinite thing is confusing though. At first I thought there'd be a Legends sized Classic blue hoodie Scarlet Spider, but it looks like they just meant the Kaine 3 and 3/4ths one from the photos.

just that they are making an obscure figure out of the blue like Misty Knight gets a [rock] One apology figure i hope they get to remake is Moon Knight
