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

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?

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 Grin

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.

AHHH! Something to look forward to but I take it that Hasbro are going back to BAF format?
That in some way kinda sucks! It gives reason to jack the price up! Do not get me wrong I will collect them for I am a BIG Marvel fan but Hasbro falling back on old ideals or do i see it total wrong?

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.gif

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.
