Marvel Legends Nightcrawler - Who Did It Better? Hasbro Or Toy Biz

Recommended Posts

I have to agree with a lot of you. Love my old toy biz Nightcrawler but this one is a bit better. Keep it up Hasbro.

I just posted this in the Sinister comparison thread, but it's Hasbro here for me, no question. Toy Biz always had weird headsculpts and were often over-articulated in ways that made the figures look more like a collection of joints than a character. I've yet to see a Toy Biz figure I prefer to its Hasbro equivalent. I passed on collecting the line back in the Toy Biz days because, while posing is important, having the figure look like the character was always more important to me.

I have the TB one and won't be replacing it. I like the look of the TB figure. The Hasbro one looks cartoony. And I just don't have the money.

With that said, I'm glad so many are enjoying Hasbro's updates. I really like the accessories Hasbro includes with most figures. Multiple head sculpts, hands. That's really a brilliant way to expand the enjoyment of a figure. I would say that is a major win for Hasbro compared to TB.

Do you guys think the Hasbro figures will maintain their joint stiffness with age? My TB Nightcrawler is definitely loose in the legs, as others have mentioned.

    • Not a bad assortment, especially for a movie series. Not great, but not bad. Pretty sure my opinion will improve once we see pix.
    • I scored a blink today for 6$ :D im stoked
    • Ahhh that suuucks! I was going to say, when you cancel your old card, order a new card at the same time, and the purchase should automatically transfer to your new card. That's what happened with me when I lost a credit card and went to cancel it. I was afraid that all the things still outstanding that were tied to my old card would be lost. For example, I was still waiting for a refund to finish processing for an item I had returned. But all those leftover things were transferred to my new card so I didn't lose anything (despite not physically receiving my new card for several days). But it sounds like you had bad timing where Amazon attempted to charge it in the brief window in between your two cards. That sucks. It sounds like you're willing to pay a little bit more for the set since you offered to cover the shipping and also provide bonus stuff. If that's the case, why not just pay a bit more for the scalper prices on ebay? I see some going for an extra $40. That's not ideal, but I'll bet the prices will come down a bit if you wait some more as well. This boxset is brand new so the prices are high now and if you wait until it's more prevalent in the wild, it should come down. Or maybe even Amazon will change course and (re)allow shipping to the UK again after a while. Edit: Now I see that you already did address Ebay as an option. I would still say wait until the prices come down. Or maybe you'll find it for sale locally or on another website that will ship to UK.
    • yes, toy fair at the very earliest. Hell we haven't even gotten a trailer released to the public.
