Is this character popular enough really to have not one but two Marvel Legends figures? Poor Firestar doesn't even have one yet!!

I could be a dick and ask you if that character is popular enough really to have any Marvel Legends figure, but I won't. 😉

Lol. Fair argument. Not sure he's relevant enough or just a product of what Hasbro was doing with it's international themed reveals last year. Had it not been a reveal in the context that it was done specifically for the UK it would seem like a far reach. It's a fair figure. I still think the Bucky Cap buck is a well sculpted base, but it's become so repetitive it's time to put it to bed.

Looks good, too bad they switched from the Bullseye/Sunfire buck tho.  I'll wait for a sale to grab him , however.   And while, yeah, he's a somewhat minor character, he's certainly more relevant than Rock Python.  He'll be fun to pose with Captain America   or with Captain Britain and other UK heroes.   

It would be cool if we got a Spitfire figure sometime for the Invaders, and actually i would imagine that figure could share parts with a potential Firestar figure

I would love to see a side-by-side with this Union Jack and the one from the Red Hulk series. There doesn't look to be a whole lot of difference. There were multiple versions of Union Jack in the comics, so I wouldn't be opposed to owning two, if they had somewhat different looks, but this one looks almost exactly like the Red Hulk one to me.

Both would be good, but I would like some more villains

Cool man! I always loved the look of Union Jack! I really hope they make Captain Britain's original look with the Star Scepter, and his magic circuitry suit from the early Excalibur days! And as for the Invaders....yes, Spitfire would be most welcome and Baron Blood too. I'm really loving that Hasbro is tackling all these obscure and old characters, man.

This Union Jack figure isn't a priority of mine, but I definitely want to get him at some point. Looks awesome to me.

And he actually looks good on the Bucky Cap mold, imo. I don't see anything wrong with using that mold as long as it suits the character.

I'm surprised they use the little feet most of the time though. Like... why not just use the feet that they put on Archangel? Hmmm.

I'm really looking forward to getting this figure, the more I see it the more I want it. I don't mind they switched the mold that much as I love the Bucky Cap mold and it suits the character just fine.  I'm hoping Hasbro gets around to making more Invaders especially Spitfire would also love Vision(WWll era) and the Super Axis: Iron Cross, Warrior Woman, Baron Blood, U-man and Master Man(I know this one is a stretch due to the big swastika on his costume).

There's just sooooo many characters I wasn't excited for in this wave. All the comic figures are a bit weak besides Beta Ray Bill, the War Machine isn't even accurate which really sucks, and the Rescue figure barely has any accessories and no nano weapons with her. She can't even use her repulser blasts. If SH Figuarts doesn't make a good Rescue figure then I'm only getting Shuri and Rescue from this wave.

Also, I really wish the BAF was either Hulk in his blue vest or Hulk in the purple "tech" suit with maybe a power gauntlet. I mean c'mon, it's the second wave. They could've put the power gauntlet Hulk as the BAF. And how did they F#*$ up the War Machine colours so bad!? There's no excuse here!

    • Not sure it has been posted but check Rite-Aid stores. Legends are beginning to show up there now since Walgreens bought most of the company.  Have seen finds posted on a few Legends groups
    • I think you are overestimating how often characters change outfit. The cases of Captain America and Thor are particular since they've had a past couple of hectic years with several temporary changes which I would consider an exception and not the norm. In the case of Spider-Man, he has only had one major change in the past five years; of using the Spider-Armor between 2015 and 2017. It's also worth pointing out that this was Spider-Man's only main costume change in the modern era. Also, the Spider-Armor got a figure in 2017, in the MJ Watson 2-pack. Even then, Hasbro has delivered modern versions of characters. But my issue is how slow they are at doing so. I think Hasbro should be able to keep up if they became as involved with the comic division as they are with the movie side. Using modern outfit changes as an example, Spider-Man used the Spider-Armor between 2015 and 2017, and it only got a figure in 2017. Iron Man's Bleeding Edge Armor was 2010-2012, w/figure in 2013. His Marvel NOW! Armor was 2012-2015, w/figure in 2015. His Model-Prime Armor was 2015-2016, w/figure in 2018. Captain America's Marvel NOW! uniform lasted from 2012 to 2014, w/figure in 2014. Thor's Marvel NOW! suit was 2012-2014, w/figure in 2015. His first Unworthy outfit was 2014-2017, w/figure in 2017. Something similar has happened with other topical characters, like Jane Fosthor who lasted 2014-2018, w/figure in 2017. FalCap was 2014-2017, w/figure in 2016. Ms. Marvel debuted in 2014 and got a figure in 2016. Miles Morales in 2011 and we only got a proper figure in 2016 (not counting the bad 2012 attempt). All of the modern outfits I mentioned had a pretty long life span of a couple of years, but Hasbro only made a figure for them when they were about to be ditched or were already ditched. In contrast, Hasbro works very tightly with Marvel Studios, allowing them to plan figures well in advance and release them either shortly before or shortly after a movie comes out. Even a delayed figure like the Iron Man MK 85 is coming out on the same year it debuted. For movie figures, 7 months is an eternity, but I'd be beyond shocked if Hasbro managed to pull that off for a comic look. I need to go on a tangent and speak a little bit about the Iron Man Marvel NOW! armor and how odd I find it because the armor debuted in 2012, and Hasbro already had a comic-accurate 3D model of it as eary as 2013 which they used for the Avengers Assemble 3.75" line. However, it only got a Marvel Legends in 2015, which lazily used a repainted MCU MK IV mold (which was inaccurate for the armor it was meant to portray). I think this could be an indicative that Hasbro can have the resources to release topical figures much earlier than they do.
    • It looks really cool but I still think Hasbro will release a MK 85 with the back piece or a battle damaged one with a bloody RDJ head and a snapping hand.
    • I think this is one of the better head sculpts Hasbro's done with the new face printing tech.
    • Looks awesome!! So much better than the wave 2 War Machine figure. I just wish that instead of it coming with 2 Thor heads, it would come with an unmasked Rodey head and a Thor head with removable shades.
