Marvel Legends and the aftermarket.

Recommended Posts

I really want Hasbro to reproduce and sell figures again with decent prices like they are going to do with Mysterio.

Crazy to see him over $40 on the aftermarket.  I was just about to buy him when I heard the news that in a few months he was going to be available again.

I hope they continue this trend and not just because of the new Spider-man movie. Way to go Hasbro!! You show those ebay bullies how it's done.:wink:

Where did you hear they are making mysterio available again? just curious - i somehow managed to get him at hasbro toy shop during one of the brief intervals he was available (never saw him in the wild though).

I agree in general. potentially the x-men vintage wave might give us a 2nd shot at figs like Jim Lee Cyclops, in the same way it gave people a chance to grab pizza spidey and the orange.brown costume wolverine.  it was great to see archangel come out again, and also i like seeing sdcc exclusives being re-released a few years later (although it seems like guys like Gladiator and Malekith pegwarmed hard).

While Hasbro has nowhere near the distribution problems that Mattel's DC Multiverse line, it does seem increasingly hard to predict which local retailers will end up getting which waves (aside from movie related waves) and its getting harder to find individual figs available at msrp online (again, movie waves being somewhat exceptional).

I saw a blurb about it here: http://marveltoynews.com/spider-man-marvel-legends-lizard-series-order-2018/

I'd definitely like to see them re-release older & hard-to-find figures.  Sure, the exact single figure with corresponding BAF would be helpful for those who need both like they're doing with Mysterio and Spider-Noir. IMO I think a re-release with tweaks like Scarlet Spider either in the vintage line or even in a new wave would be fine.

I'm also open for re-releases to be in the form of a 2pk. For my example I'll use one I need, Jim Lee version Rogue. I think they could absolutely re-release Rogue in a 2pk & she'll sell it well. She could be paired up with another figure like a tweaked Iceman for instance that has the smooth head looking closer to his Jim Lee version.

He's up on BBTS and EE (I think) for a February or March re-stock if memory serves.

If that's true it would be a brilliant move on Hasbro's part and an ingenious way to cut out the scalpers and parts swappers as I'm assuming they won't have a BAF piece. Hasbro would gain some serious respect points from me.

Based on all of the solicitation images, it looks like they will be straight-up re-issues, with the BAF pieces. I'm cool with them doing that for e-tailers, and/or doing some "greatest hits" waves of high-demand figures. I'd prefer improved updates (like giving Spidey Noir some interchangeable hands and a removable hat), but I know straight re-issues are cheaper and easier for Hasbro to do.

    • Yep Ive seen the listing sadly it ran out really quickly and couldnt pick one up, dont know if amazon was just starting to create the listing and some managed to add the figure to their carts in the right time, or if it just sold out quickly, in any case its probably going to be restocked later, hopefully by then we'll know more info on it, from the images the figure seems like a straight repaint of the previous green hulks but does seem to have a new headsculpt.
    • I guess because I grew up reading Marvel comics in an era where Marvel adhered to the listed hgts/wgts of their characters & drew them in their correct hgts, I got used to thinking it would always be that way & that the editors, who's main job is to spot/point out inaccuracies/mistakes & have the writer/artist correct them & nowadays, I just feel like the staff at Marvel could give 2 poops about respecting the source material. An artist wants to draw the Thing as an 8 footer, editor says, "feh, knock yourself out", Same thig seems to be going on at Hasbro, who ever's in charge at Marvel of OKing said figure should have looked at the Thing prototype & said, "nope, too big in hgt, knock off an inch",  When it comes to characters that are heavily muscled/thick like Thanos, Hulk, Thing, Juggernaut, Abom, Rhino, I'd happily lose the double elbow, double knee POA in place of being the correct scale & thickness. All those figures mentioned are at least an inch + too tall. Thanos is listed as being 6'7 but thanks to the MCU, he's now an 8 footer so of course the comics have to follow suit, Jugs was originally 6'10 but nope, let's push him up to almost 9ft tall for no other reason than artistic license cuz ya know, being 6'10 isn't big enough. Kingpin BAF is at least an inch too big as well, he's 6'8, now he is drawn as being a 7-8 footer as well.  I know that the odds of ever getting any or all of these large sized characters ever getting re-done at their more correct hgts is slim to none but I just hope that Hasbro does their best to make characters truer to their actual hgts in the comics with future releases.  I'll wait for a Perez based Beast to be done as the Jim Lee version is over scaled as well. Hank McCoy is 5'11, not 6'6. 
    • This doesn’t surprise me, and does, in fact, please me. Right after the SDCC Vintage style Hulk was unveiled I saw someone make a grey Hulk custom and it looked far better than the official one.
    • There are now pics on the main page:   Marvel Legends Grey Hulk Action Figure Coming From Hasbro?!?
    • so it begins. Get your color wheels ready folk. LOL  Joking aside, I am delight to get this out of the way. Should this be consider a FA version or a pre-Joe Fixit version? The only complaint I have is it's on the wrong sculpt as grey Hulk is alot shorter the his green counterpart.
