I’ve been a Marvel Legends collector since the Captain America/Hulk/Iron Man/Toad wave.  

And I am just as fascinated by the business of Action Figures as I am with the actual figures themselves.


I cannot remember a year like 2018, with this many waves of figures.  It has been a constant flow.
An ambitious year for Hasbro, to be sure, but unfortunately the year Toys “R” Us ceased its US operation.   (I am assuming TRU is a huge customer and was a large portion of their Accounts Receivable.)


I am fearful that this has affected production, and will result in less figures getting produced. Which given Hasbro’s ambitious 2018 plans, really hurts us Collectors, as less product is being produced.
The evidence to support my theory is the scarcity of Mysterio, Spider-Noir, and Reed Richards, and the fact that whole waves arrive in stores, disappear quickly, and are never restocked.  HTS, which was always my last resort, runs out and deletes items (not "temporary out of stock",  just this "this is embarrasing").  Same for BBTS and the others.      

Walgreens/Duane Reade, which has been my reliable, go-to store for Marvel Legends (three near my house, many more a short drive away, plus the 5 or 6 I visit everyday in my commute through Manhattan)   has all but dried up lately.  I used to run out of cash, and had to decide which figures to get today, and which to go back for after payday.  But now, all I see are old inventory and mostly empty shelves.

I havent been able to find any of the new waves in Canada, has anyone else had better luck? Has anyone done any customs with the new waves eg- Classic Magneto, X-Force Psylocke?

I hear you, its all most TOO much.  I collected those first few waves, then stopped and just started back a couple years ago, so I am totally overwhelmed.  I usually try to get the whole wave, selling off any I don't want, or replacing new figures with older ones, but man.  With this many coming at once, Im just trying to pick up those I know will be hard to find hoping I can fill out the collection later.  I wonder how retailers are handling it?  Most of my regular spots are still full of peg warmers from 1-2 years ago.

I'm planning on getting the X-Wave regardless of anything (X-Fan for life), but the Cull Obsidian wave would be a really nice treat.

 

And yeah, I am totally with you all on the double-edged sword of this massive amount of product in 2018. Especially since I'm not generally a full-wave person outside of X-Men, but between individual characters and the BAFs this year, it's an expensive time. Both Deadpool waves, the X-Men wave, and the SP//dr wave, alongside most of the Lizard wave... and that's only the mainline waves, that's not even getting into multipacks, special lines (Marvel Studios 10th and Legendary Riders), and the various exclusives.

But, even then, I am so happy to see so many new figures that I want. It's nuts. Especially since price increases have made my old collecting vice, Transformers, much less viable this year, which means doubling-down on Legends. Like I said, it's crazy.

Considering I still need to buy the Juggernaut and Warlock waves (stopped collecting for a while) I'd love to get both sets... Due to my addiction to plastic

 

Don't judge me!

The QC needs to go up Wolverine with yellow eyes and such should not be hitting shelves

but if they come out like the promo shots then great!

I checked their reviews.. They have really good articulation and they look awesome too..  I'm hoping Marvel continues to have such amazing figures!

According to the reviews, these are the best waves..  I just love the paint job as well as the articulation! Thor, antman, wasp, storm and wolverine are my very favourites!! Would love to add these to my collection.

This is a great thing that a collector will be able to get an entire wave, especially the xmen because the storm is a really nice figure and personally I like the magneto

    • My first pick would be  Quicksilver/Ultron Drone.  Army building for the drones, multiple Pietros to show his super speed. Warriors Three. With either a headswap for Fandral, or just the second one.  Cosmo/Howard the Duck Whiplash/Justin Hammer. Either the armored or racetrack version, I just want a Hammer to do a stopmotion Stark Expo dance. General Ross/Abomination. I feel like there's not enough love for this. Malekith/Kurse Alexander Pierce/Agent Sitwell Kaecilius/Mindless one Zealot multiple headswaps+magic effects Ancient One/Wong Stakar/Aleta/Martinex/Charly-27/Mainframe/Krugar Miek/Fenris (maybe not HUGE, but, you know... a big wolf) Sonny Burch/Uzman/Dave/Kurt Chitauri/Sakaaran/Outrider Male Starforce (Yon-Rogg, Att-Las, Bron-Char alt heads)/Skrull (alt heads)
    • Yep can't forget Bag Man! 😄  Hard to decide what Inhuman I would want to see in the wave, but will keep my fingers crossed in hopes that we'll get a set of em like we are with Alpha Flight.
    • The thing about random is that they already have the arm(s) for him thanks to a BAF not alot of people completed. The Titus Baf.
    • Random would be fun. Nice list. Lists are great for imagination. I'm getting more excited about seeing some Generation X figures. That series was fun early on. I liked the uniforms. I would hope Hasbro could include some accessories to demonstrate their powers. Maybe some extra hands or limbs for Husk. I wish they would do flight stands for someone like M. Would Skin be cool without normal and stretched out hands? Would Mondo have to be a BAF? I remember the 90's toy being somewhat large. What would be the uniform for your ideal New Mutants figures? They had some really dated appearances around Inferno. Were those characters around the entire time?
    • Can't believe I forgot Bag-Man, probably because I would see the Bombastic Bagman as a Spider-Man variant
