I had the Marvel Universe Galactus arrive today and it is definitely awesome!!!  I'm still working on finding a good deal on the Face off Hulk. Thanks to everyone for all of your great suggestions. I Feel like my newly restarted Legends collection is starting to fill in.

Toys R Us has Marvel items BOGO 40% off in store and online. I picked up 2 Of the Hydra 2 packs today right before church and used a $10 reward on top of that. It was a steal!!!

Found Wolverine and Spider-Man at my local Toys R Us in Indiana on Saturday.  They were not with the regular Legends stuff but were in an aisle near there by the Spider-Man and general Marvel role play toys. Just a heads up for anyone looking.  If you think you haven't found them in store, keep looking because who knows where they'll put them.

Sorry to change the subject, but the Marvel Legends Defenders Amazon exclusive set is back up for pre-order for anyone who still wants it. It went up, then back down, then back up again a few times the last couple of days.

Thanks for the info!!  The quest continues. I only want Spidey and Maybe Wolverine (just for unmasked head). I just got back into Legends a few months ago after selling my Toy Biz collection of Legends about 5 years ago.  I missed out on that Spidey in the Hobgoblin wave.

Is anyone finding the vintage wave at Wal-Mart?  If so, are they in the regular toy aisle. I can't seem to find a trace of them...thanks.

I actually have that one with the drill!  It's in a tote at my parents' house with a sentinel and the spider slayer and Crime Central from the Spider-Ma cartoon from the 90s. Great stuff.

In typical Toys R Us fashion they cancelled my Hydra 2 Pack order OVER A WEEK after I paid for it. No wonder they are going bankrupt. They don't even know what they have in stock. Not only that, but they don't ever stock the stuff people want.  Oh well. On the upside I was finally able to order the Mj/Spidey 2 pack I missed and it's supposed to arrive today.  We'll see........

Thanks for all of the great info. It appears the overwhelming consensus is the Face off version of Hulk.

Next question - Toy Biz Legends Galactus or Hasbro Marvel Universe Galactus??

Great point!!!  Those are my exact thoughts. I'm a little behind on Batman but I finished up the new 52 stuff before the Rebirth relaunch and I noticed Batman had tremendous amounts of tech at the end of that series.

I ordered Hydra 2 pack from Toys r us website on October 17.

In Captain America Civil War they kind of eluded to him having a Spidey sense. In the big hero fight scene when he was holding cap's shield and Ant-Man was sitting on there about to change sizes Spidey says something like "hey something's not right here guys". I don't remember the exact quote but he makes it seem like he sensed something was about to happen, he just didn't know what. It is certainly a very down played and watered down version of Spidey sense.

I'm not totally against tech for the characters, I just like it when the thing that makes them special is more about their skills and abilities and not about their gadgets (exception being Iron Man of course).

I agree. There are some cool applications with the new suit, but I like the days when his most impressive pieces of tech were web shooters and a camera.

What are your thoughts on the MCU vs the comics?

Do you prefer movie toys and collectibles to comic based?

Do you like when Marvel makes the comics more like the movies?

I'm just curious to hear other people's view on this subject. I prefer the movie universe to stay in the movie universe.  The comics should heavily influence the movies and the movies should stay OUT of the comics. The Nick Fury debacle killed SHIELD in the comics in my eyes. 

I've just re-started collecting Marvel Legends recently and I'm ALL IN on comic based but have zero interest in movie based. I like the designs (mostly), just not in toy form. The one exception could be Iron Man.

Remember when the only heroes to have Superhuman Class 100 strength were Thor, Hulk and Silver Surfer? Even guys like Abomination and Juggernaut were less. Now they're giving out Class 100 ratings like hot breakfasts.

I remember reading an issue that displayed stats and showed that characters like Spider-Man and Colossus were at the same strength class. This was over 20 years ago when I was in grade school so unfortunately I can't recall which issue it was. I know that at that time the X-Men animated series was in full swing as well as the 90s Spider-Man cartoon and I was in disbelief that they were at the same power level.  In Colossus's first guest appearance he brought down an entire building on a construction site and Spider-Man can barely lift a Volkswagen.  Apparently they weren't portrayed at the same strength level for very long despite it being printed in the comics.
