What Other Line Could Possibly Dethrone Legends?

Other lines could have a chance with one maybe two factors  but it is unlikely any toyline could will beat ML in all areas that it excels in 

For sure.

At least right now.  Who knows what’s around the corner.  But I doubt any current line could top it

Exactly, but who know what the future holds. Still it will be a really tall order for any line

Would you say it’s more likely that another line dethrones them in the future, or the line itself comes to an end because of lack of sales.  Obviously this isn’t the case right now, but let’s say the face of the toy economy is rapidly changed in the next 5 years

I think the world would have to end for Marvel Legends to stop being the top collectors line. That's not too far into the future if we're pessimists 😛

I don't more sales would be a factor. To be honest the only way for ML to be knocked off is for everyone else to really up their game or for Hasbro to get really sloppy

Idk man, black series has only gotten better and people finally feel like they’re on par with the imports and transformers siege is the only TF line in 10 years I’ve even found remotely interesting personally.

they seem to be coming back better, but for awhile there it was like star wars(mainly the 3 inch figs)  and TF slid back a few years. some of the siege ones do look pretty good though, hope they keep improving

Yeah I agree... I think the Star Wars black series has actually gotten better. I actually like how they are re-releasing many of their old figures with the new face prints. Transformers are just so expensive nowadays that I just can't 😫....

Yeah TF is more expensive than I remember.  $35 or something for a 6” Optimus from siege?  A little much when you’re pretty much getting a Legend or a black series

TFs aren't that expensive, in fact Siege has been one of the cheapest lines in a while not by much but every bit helps. Over here Transformers are way cheaper than Marvel legends and the Black Series

I find that strange that geography would make such a difference

dang im getting nostalgic, getting a new voyager class TF I liked was a great feeling

I know that obviously pricing is different, but to have lines be flipped in their pricing is strange regardless

    • 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.
