Do you think chases would be a good idea

Recommended Posts

It's technically already happened with the Vintage Punisher and the three "finger" variants.  And don't think it's a good idea.  These guys can be hard enough to find as is.  That Hasbro hasn't done this to the extent that Toybiz did is a good thing.

Also delete one of your threads.  You only need one.

Chase figures were a bad idea in the Toybiz days, they were a bad idea in the early days of Hasbro’s relaunched Marvel Legends, and they’re a bad idea now. There are better ways to get new or variant figures out there, and if that means waiting for later waves or store exclusives I’m cool with that.

We see regular releases that fetch really high prices because they were hard to find (like Jim Lee Cyclops). Rare chase figures would just make that even worse and upset collectors.

if I'm being totally honest - Hell no! It's a horrible idea. it was a good concept but failed due to store not ordering more cases.

Plus with hasbro doing swappable head and repaint there is not need for chase variants.

What SolidSnakeEyes and Mechverse said is what I say in regards to this

Man, I hope they don't go back to doing this. My brain's already bossy enough without having to factor in extra rare figures that are only minor variations of other simultaneously released figures.

Speaking as both a Funko collector and an old ToyBiz collector, that's a hearty heck no.  I absolutely hate chase figures.  Very few of the ToyBiz chases ever did enough to make me have to have them, and thankfully I tracked those down.  But the way that Funko does it is just unreal, no way should Legends pull anything like that. 

Plus, during the "Return of Marvel Legends" phase or the prior 2 packs that closed out the dark age of Legends, the variants or chases were sometimes easier to find than the standard figures, and at times less desirable, like the orange Dan Ketch Ghost Rider compared to the blue one, or the gray suit Black Widow compared to the classic one.
