We all love ML and we love collecting marvel figures (the comics stuff forget the movies) so now it seems the ML days will be ending and the 3 inch thingy will arrive. Is there any of you ML collectors out there who will not buy the 3 inch? if so then what will you get to satisfy your marvel needs.

I was a bit confused on what to do, i was hoping to complete my marvel universe in ML format but it seems that hasbro killed that dream. I would be lying if i said i wont collect the 3 inch so i guess i wil just buy both and hope we still get MLs even if its only 2 packs. Maybe easglemoss figurines can satisfy some of you marvel collectors out there since they r doing the whole marvel universe.

 

I am definitely not going to buy the 3.75" line. I started with 6" and will not go back and start over. If Hasbro couldn't take the responsiblity of this line then they should have left it with Toybiz/Marvel who did not give up on the BAF line thet started. I hope the two packs continue, but I will be happy with what I have and if I miss anything then I will look into customs.

yeah so they pretty much confirmed what we all knew.... 6" was going to get the shaft once the new 3.75" figures hit. they said they are looking for new ways to keep the legends series alive when it is becoming increasingly difficult to do so.

 

speak with your wallets. don't buy 3 3/4".

 

 

Well,,Well,,,,,,. Here is my take and personal history! As a child, I used to rush home and throw my backpack on the couch, dive to turn on the T.V to watch GiJoe followed by Transformers. It was love at first sight. I remember saving lunch money to buy my GiJoes. When I held one in my tiny little hands( I was 10yrs old guys) the articulation and detail amazed me. 3.75" was big compared to my hand size, so it was optimal for game play and my insane imagination, which I still have! I boxed them away for 17 years, including my transformers. One day while shopping with my wife at Walmart. I decided to check the toy aisle to see the new generation of toys. On a peg, was a stealth Iron Man from Marvel Legends(variant, which i didnt realize at the time), he was 6", fully articulate, and more detailed than any GiJoe I have ever owned. I paid $8.98 plus tax. As soon as I got home I scurried through the bags, pulled him out, and cracked him open.

.................I am an adult now! All the emotions I had as a child were lost and had resurfaced when I held that Iron Man. It fit perfect in my large hand as an adult. I went into my garage to find the boxes of old GiJoes and Transformers. I pulled them all out and sold them on EBAY. I made a whopping $2,000 dollars. Later that week I went back to Walmart and picked up Hulk, Toad, Yellow Iron Man, and Variant Gold Iron Man from Marvel legends. I started buying doubles to open one for display. Yes,,, on ocassion I play with my toys as an adult. NO, I will not support the 3.75 line. They dont even fit in my hand, too small! I have the entire ML collection, EVERY FIGURE EVER MADE TWICE!!! The only positive I see is that I will finally put my wallet to rest after the 2 Packs, Nemesis, Red Hulk, and Ares wave hit. No company will ever satisfy all its clients 100%. I will just sit back and save money til they decide to do more 6" ML's.

Without quoting the entire post, I agree with everything Rollo said at the end of page 1. (And it always ticked me off that comics got dropped, because they were a great way to familiarize kids with characters they might not have seen before.)

 

The BAFs are stopping because there are no BAF pieces in two-packs and single-carded exclusives (like Black Queen or Target Hulk). So putting 2 and 2 together, it's clear that this is what the future of ML will be. They left open the possibility that heavy-hitters like TRU, Wal-Mart and Target might get exclusive waves if they're interested enough, a la Red Hulk, Ares and Nemesis. That's hardly a ringing endorsement.

The domino/cannonball and cable/marvel girl waves were all over malaysia, i guess hasbro's exclusives are not so exclusive
