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

    • King & Queen: Black Bolt / Medusa - these two need to be redone Evolution: Mar-Vell / Captain Marvel - first appearance Mar-Vell in green and white Kree warrior outfit; other is red and blue Nega-bands costume with interchangeable head for white/blonde hair Enemies: Doctor Strange / Baron Mordo Heroes for Hire: Power Man / Iron Fist - classic versions of Luke Cage and Danny Rand  Nightwing Restorations: Misty Knight / Colleen Wing  West Coast Avengers: Tigra / Wonder Man - red jacket and sunglasses version of Simon Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: male / female - two bodies in tactical blue and gray uniforms, interchangeable heads to create Jimmy Woo, Jasper Sitwell, Clay Quartermain, Phil Coulson (male), and Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, Maria Hill, Sharon Carter, Melinda May (female)   There are so, so, soooo many more I could come up with. I also really like the idea of army builder packs for the Skrulls, the Kree, the Mindless Ones, the Leader's Humanoids, Hydra, A.I.M., etc.
    • I love that the Fantastic Four are getting their own wave(s), but I prefer classic looks to modern. Since the Walgreen's exclusive gave us the retro/classic look for Reed and Sue, I'd like to see the other iconic design, the blue and white costumes designed by John Byrne, made famous in the '80s and '90s and in the unreleased Roger Corman movie.   Wave 2 Mister Fantastic - with bendy wire stretchable torso; arms and legs would be good, too, but torso is a must She-Hulk - Fantastic Four costume Mole Man - 3 1/2 inches tall, comes with 2 moloid creatures the size of a Marvel Universe figure Super-Skrull The Wizard Paste-Pot Pete BAF - Annihilus Wave 3 Invisible Woman - in costume, translucent shield effect like the new toy has Human Torch - Johnny Storm in costume, attachable flame effects Namor - reissue with cape and crown, alternate head with more comic-accurate hair and eyebrows Skrull Scientist Mad Thinker Invisible Woman - translucent BAF - Awesome Android Wave 4 Human Torch - flamed on, red body, black lines, yellowish flame effects Crystal - classic yellow Inhumans look Triton -  Diablo Puppet Master Blastaar BAF - Dragon Man Wave 5 Thing - with blue pants Gorgon Triton Titania Firelord Impossible Man BAF - Ronan the Accuser  
    • TF is not one franchise it is at least four franchises at the moment.  Also no that they are doing the main members there is no need to release them again in the next wave. They should go back to the old He-Man idea and release main characters once a year, not every wave or in some cases two in every wave
    • True, but I could argue that Transformers is ONE franchise, and you may get 4 or 5 more waves throughout a given year. FF is only one of MANY franchises under the Marvel banner, every one of which must be serviced. There's no guarantee there will be another FF wave anytime soon, so you have to get your big guns up there right off. That's probably why, after waiting so long, Hasbro is suddenly hitting us with 90s X-Men left and right. Lord knows when we'll get another X-Wave.
