Thunderball (from the 'Wrecking Crew')


Spider-Man (from the "Big Time" Storyline)


Madame Masque


Drax the Destroyer (Modern version)


Daken (in Wolverine costume)

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.

I like them, but I'm a Marvel kind of guy! Afro

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!!!

I'm gonna say that The Wrecker will be a b.a.f sooner rather than later.

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

I think we had Archangel, Jean Grey (Jim Lee) and Punisher (War Journal) so far.

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.

Does anyone here in the states know the price point on these? As much as I'm digging them and wanting to put together Arnim Zola I can't afford to do these at $20 a pop, like I'm seeing the Iron Man at Target Undecided

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!!! Angry

Arnim Zola
LOVE IT!!!!!

Piledriver
Hulkling buck again!!!!!! Angry

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!

BBTS is selling the set for $119, so that's $17 a figure plus shipping. Not sure what price Mike will be offering?

Mike has the 7 figure set for US$112. He obviously gets my money. Shipping will be cheaper too.
