A simple question; what was your first Marvel legends figure.

 

For Me it was the Toy Biz wave 1 Cap. I got it in the Toymaster in Wexford (sadly no longer exists)

Technically it was the Icons 12" Venom figure from Toybiz.  My first regular scale Legends figure was the Hasbro Nemesis Wave Punisher, camo variant.

ToyBiz Punisher series 7 maybe?  I got super lucky and found him at my local Wal-Mart.  Ended up grabbing Ultimate Cap and numerous others after that.  Punisher still sits at my desk at work though.  Traveled with me to college and all over the place.  Probably still one of my top 5 favorite figures of all time.

Toybiz Man-Thing was the first, At that point in time I was completely not interested in collecting super hero figures anymore, inless they were symbiotes or villains, and had dedicated myself to solely horror and retro figures, but that Man-Thing was too amazing to pass up so I grabbed it. I also didn't ever really like Toybiz Legends, I thought they looked generally goofy and poorly constructed for the most part I was a Select's buyer I had that Select Dr. Doom (first Select), I remember my second Legend being Vengeance, and my Third being Blackheart , there were a few Legends I wanted but never got from that time, but prices and availability sucked so I passed. I never bought another ToyBiz Legend after that and didn't get back to legends until Amazing Spider-Man Green Goblin wave

Gambit, way back when. I had just gotten back into the collecting hobby with LotR, only the characters I really liked though. He was followed by Iceman and Nightcrawler a few years later... then the movie FF, and well then the MCU happened.

The early Selects really were gorgeous.  I had the Hawkeye that came with the Ant-Man on one of the arrows.  To this day it was one of the coolest accessories I’ve ever had with a figure.

Picked up Cap, Iron Man, and Hulk upon finding the first wave of Toy Biz legends.  Toad was out of stock.  Off the rack of the Toys R Us in Woodbridge, VA.

A friend picked up the Juggernaut-wave Rogue and Kitty Pryde figures from some clearance bin for me, because I had been lamenting all my old 90s Toy Biz X-Men figures being handed down to my little brothers (who subsequently lost or broke them all). It took a year or so from there for me to fall in hard, but now I have every X-Men and Deadpool figure starting with that Juggernaut wave.

That’s an awesome X-collection!  There are a few I have skipped here and there but my collection looks pretty similar to that.  This heat is going to hit our wallets hard!

Yeah, it's going to be a great, but expensive year. (: I definitely would've skipped Paladin, Lady Deadpool, and underwear Deadpool (among a few others) if not for the BAFs and bargain-bin prices.

Toybiz Omega Red, then Toybiz Bishop. Those were the ones that started the madness...

Toy Biz wave 1. I've been in since the beginning! We need a new toad figure

You aren’t kidding.  The articulation on the old one is awful by even standards back then. We still have some unannounced figures in the vintage wave, maybe we will get lucky.

Sauron was a must have for me, but I passed on building Sasquatch.  Although at this point I would only be missing the pieces from X-23 and Paladin (if I hadn’t traded most of them away) since I bought the rest of the wave.  Some one on here posted a Mad Cap head on a Paladin body and now I am really debating on picking one up just for that...

I know he was meant for another line and was "thrown in"  the Legends line to get the figure released.

Considering he is the only Toad we have, at least he was thrown in then haha

Yeah, the ads were boasting over 20 points of articulation and then you have the Toad with around 10. Never touched him

Pattie-Cake Hulk from waaaay back in Series 1 of the ToyBiz line. It was the first I was able to find when they were first released, and the package was all beat up. Fortunately those old clambshell packages could pretty much take a bullet without the figure inside getting so much as a scratch.

First figures were from the Groot BAF wave.  I was a big fan of the GotG comic and was so pumped up for the movie that when i saw the toys on the shelves i had to get them. Think i got Drax, Star-lord, Gamora, and Rocket in that 1st purchase and got Nova and the space-armor Iron Man later to finish Groot. 

The Drax and Nova figures have probably held up best from that wave, the rest were replaced by improved versions when GotG 2 came out (well, except space-armor Iron Man).

Feels like Hasbro has only gotten better since then, not only in terms of mcu figs but the comic figs as well.

Hasbro has even improved in the materials they used.  My Nova has a permanent warped elbow and my Iron Man was super gummy due to that weird rubbery plastic they used to use.  Iceman was also made in that same plastic I think.

Silver Centurion Iron Man from the ToyBiz days. Eventually I tracked down some of the previous ones like Cap. These were the days when they were like $8.88 at Walmart lol

I started in 2009, hunting down the ToyBiz Legends, the first one was Cyclops from the Sentinel BAF wave, 10 years later, I’m pretty happy with my collection and have replaced almost every old figure with their Hasbro counterpart.

I cant remember too well I think the first real Marvel Legends figure I got was Toybiz Wave 1 Cap and or Ironman (I had both of them, I cant remember which one I bought first or if I bought them together)
I do remember my first Toybiz (ML type figure) I got was the Symbiote Spiderman from the Spiderman Classics line that preceded the Marvel Legends, I later found the regular suit spiderman but Symbiote SM was my first figure from this line

I've been doing the exact same thing.  A lot of them are major upgrades, but some have been tough to actually sell for personal connection sake.  I ended up selling my ToyBiz Beast in a lot on ebay to fund my purchase of the Caliban wave one, but I still miss that figure.
