Every year I find that the Marvel Legends reveals seem more and more repetitive. Juggernaut again -- this soon?! They do manage to eek out a few figures I want every year, something like 10 percent. There are just way too many classic characters that are not being represented.

I'm super-excited about the ML showings.  I don't see how this massive effort can be shown as phoning it in.

Iím with you. I donít recall ever being this excited for any line after an event as I am with ML right now. The Magneto family set, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Silver Samurai, Hydro Man, and a handful of others all look great and I really canít wait to get all of them.

-Marvel Legends:  Silver Samurai looked great.  I really liked the Quicksilver/Scarlet Witch/Magneto set

-DC Mattel/Whoever: The McFarlane announcement is very interesting

-MOTC: I don't want them, but I was happy to see Movie figures.  Those will make a lot of folks happy

-Mega Construx Heroes: Thanks for not showing anything, Mattel!

-Castlevania: These looked great, but oddly, I'm not sure if I want them

-McFarlane Star Trek: Nothing?  Dang it

-McFarlane Game of Thrones:  A few cool figures, but no characters I really want

-Surprises:  Seeing Conan at SUPER 7, and learning that they will also be doing Ninja Turtles

Not really commenting on sculpt or costume choices.  They all look great as usual.  Just a dull bit of character selection.  IMHO.  YMMV.

Rock Python!  Yeah, it's admittedly a lot of re-do's this year - but a whole lot of them and they look great.

Same. There is no doubt that the figures look the best they have. Selection is where I am being let down.

At this point, DC figures are like hoping you find a hundred dollar bill on the sidewalk.  You really want it to happen, but the odds aren't likely.

That's just my personal experience.  I realize that a lot of that is because I'm looking for mostly B and C Listers, and lots of Never-Been-Dones.
