Recommended Posts

Yes, those were the unproduced figures that Toybiz showed off at one of the fairs a while back. Which Hasbro then snatched up and produced (the hydra, anyway).

 

That what you were getting at?

That's kind of the irony of the matter. Originally, the army builders were 6" and had 10 points of articulation. That proved to be too costly, so they were reduced to 5 POA. That was still too costly, so they reduced them to 5". At that point Jesse Falcon scrapped them because they were STILL too expensive, and had been changed so much that they weren't really Marvel Legends at all.

 

Then Hasbro comes along and puts out Hydra Soldier with 20 POA (roughly, I'm not actually counting). The fans complain up one side and down the other about his articulation and how Hasbro sucks because the figure is 'garbage'. While the figure isn't perfect by any means, no one seems to care that it's significantly better than what Toy Biz ever planned to give.

you guys want to know what funny? even though the Hydra soldier has only 20 point of Art and people thought it was a bad figure, it was the highest seller in the wave. why do you think were getting a AB series in the two packs?

Those were some sample sculpts for prototypes from a Toy fair sometime 2006. That is the reason why they lack the normal articulation. I'm sure if they made it into actual production, they would have been made with standard ML articulations. I was looking for a Forbush Man and Thor Frog. What a pity it did not make it to the public!

    • Marvel Select Superior Spider-Man.  I think it is (or was) a Disney Store Exclusive.
    • FINALLY. Just....delighted. Could it be a little better in places? Yes, but it's Alpha Flight. It's the full team (or close enough). Is this the best Marvel Legends box-set since Thunderbolts? Yes. Does this hammer literally everything at SDCC? Yes.  This has been teased and teased for literally a decade. Probably, you'll remember when the Deadpool/Sasquatch BAF wave was previewed, it was spoken of/rumoured to be 'The Alpha Flight wave'. Then, they showed the Wendigo BAF from the X-Force wave at one of the 'cons, and then that became 'the Alpha Flight wave'. Before this reveal, best you could hope for was maybe the twins in a two-pack or in an X-wave. This though...just beautiful. McHogan - re who's missing? from the first 12 issues, it's missing just Marina, but from the classic era of Flight (up to issue #50 or so) It's also missing: Box (I) (Roger Bochs, who I would just loved to have seen), Box (II) (Madison Jeffries), Talisman (sad about that, too). Nemesis, Laura Dean, Goblin, Persuasion/Purple Girl, Wild Child, Windshear, Diamond Lil, Sasquatch (II) ('Wanda Langkowski'), 'big' Puck & Windshear.
