Marvel Legends 6" Black Widow Wave Fully Revealed And Up For Pre-Order

Wow I'm surprised by these new reveals, and my Surprise comes from how well... cheap they look, and as far as movie figures go they barely look like the sculptor cared about representing the actors likeness, at first look the whole wave screams retrograde, like this wave should have been released in 2015, I'm most stunned by how poor Yelena and Guardian's faces look, both almost have a basic line feel, the BAF looks really wonky and way too toony for me, I don't know how I feel about this wave in the end, Taskmaster looks pretty damn great, and the early comic reveals I'm interested in but these new figures I'm seeing are not what I expected (but we will see as more pictures come out, and the get released, in hand they may prove themselves better)

 

 

YES! Its NOT just me then....I'm not insane. I'm NOT!!

All jokes aside, I see now from the majority of responses most of you see it the way I do....there's a kind of generic, half-step of attention to this wave. And I'm really disappointed in the BAF choice. Guess someone wanted some more mileage out of the old Iron Monger mold. I get it, but this doesn't bode well for the Titanium Man, if they ever make him. TBH though this CD BAF is the same model of armor used in at least some of the comics- its not out of left field. Still, its not worth my time or money, so pass.

Looking it up, it might be that this crimson dynamo was chosen because he had a solo series for a while.

Honestly I think this wave was really a 2 for one cash grab idea, 1 to make a obligatory movie wave to coincide with MCU movie, and 2 to re-use old bucks and molds or utilise the least amount of new features to save money (on making a cheaper wave..remember china import prices going up folks!). it looks like a recycle wave because they can, they clearly said, nah don't use this new face scan tech, nah don't give them any new bucks (I think nobody here has a new buck, is Taskmaster not Ronin without a jacket, and a bit of new sculpt?) both Yelena and Widow are total re-used parts, of course so are the comic figures, Seems Red Guardian is the only brand newish sculpt I still see elements of older figures however.

It's a real step down the ladder of quality here, but they know it's going to sell, because we eat it all up

this scares me, like I said about all of the re-paints coming out so furiously, Hasbro knows us to well, and we are going to enter the age (which I hope won't be true) of seriously recycled parts, lack of face scans (when can be applied) and re-paints, beacuse of the china problem

but let's hope not

Pass for me on this wave. Don't know much about Crimson Dynamo, I honestly can say that I never read a comic about the character or even Red Guardian. But at least I had heard of Red Guardian.

Speaking of Red Guardian, the figure looks like he's younger. I wonder if the movie will have flashbacks with him.

Pretty solid wave. Just wish they had included an alternate masked head for Red Guardian.

As for looking cheap? C'mon guys you can do better than that. I know for some of you the natural inclination is to rag on the movie lines, but these are no better or worse than any other given Marvel Legends.

Well, so this is what it feels like to be tempted for a wave when you're only interested in the BAF and one other figure. It's not the Crimson Dynamo I would have preferred, but it's still a Crimson Dyanamo so I won't be a choosing beggar. I guess I'll scout for BAF parts on eBay, save for the right leg, since the other figure I'm interested in is Spymaster.

We already had a Crimson Dynamo in marvel legends, which in a flight pose looks decent. But in this case you can choose.

Does anyone find it ironic that they put up the russian heavy black widow wave on the same day russia is banned from most sporting events?

We haven't even seen them in hand yet... Yes prices are up because of supposed "tariffs". As long as they don't make brittle ass figures like Neca or Mcfarlane I'd be happy. I'm not picking up the whole wave cause I only collect classic versions. But Bucky and Crossbones look good too me.

That Taskmaster does look nice. I've already got the other 2 versions, not sure I'll get this one, but in a disappointing wave, this one is pretty good.

Ok...what happened here?

These look like 4" Star Wars type figures, at first glance, especially Yelena. There's just a generic "blah" feel to most of the wave, and I'm pissed AGAIN that no one can seem to get the Black Widow right. Did they just re-use the buck from the Endgame figure?? C'mon, show her some LOVE....this is the BLACK WIDOW. Marvel's premiere spy. I know they can do better than this.

And why on earth Red Guardian doesn't have a helmet is beyond me. This BAF is not the version I was expecting- I thought for sure the classic Crimson Dynamo suit (Marvel Universe did it in the 4" size, and it was damn near straight out of the comic) was gonna be here.

Sorry. I like Spy Master but otherwise....Passing on this wave.

That was the version of CD I was hoping for but instead Hasbro cheaped out & reused the old Iron monger BAF sculpt on a version of CD , hardly anyone was asking for. Oh well, saves me $$ as I was only getting Crossbones, Spymaster & Winter Soldier & CD had it been the 80s 'Armor wars" version. Amazing how they could do that awesome version in 4' scale for the MU line but couldn't do it in 6' scale for this wave. Hopefully we get that classic CD in a future Ironman wave or as an 80th anniv deluxe wave.

This is SO not the Crimson Dynamo I wanted. Other than Spymaster I'll be passing on this wave. I'm happy for the folks that want this wave though!

I feel bad for people who care about Crimson Dynamo, but I'm not surprised. 

Man, what happened to the face print on the movie figures? Are these just rough prototypes?

This is the crimson dynamo! I guess that crappy BAF is how he’s going to look in the movie. Thanks Hasbro and Disney. (sarcasm)

Of all the pit-falls that could (and probably will) turn this from the movie MCUBW fans have been begging for since IM2, into yet another patented Mouse-House Cluster-SNAFU, Crimson Dynamo didn't even crack the top 20.

Oh I'm not really hating just making observations , they arn't impressing me with those face sculpts, looks like a lackluster attempt, but don't get me wrong I'm still planning on buying the majority of this wave, I don't care for the BAF or Red Guardian, but the rest I know sure will be purchased

With the crowd on this one as well. Not my favorite version for Crimson Dynamo, but hey, at least it's size accurate for once. So for the 2nd "EMERGENCY" wave do we expect Titanium Man on the Kree Sentry buck? I guess we can only hope at this point. Maybe we won't have to endure 5 versions of the main character this time. Also the ladies' face sculpts do seem a little chalky, but maybe it's only preliminary placeholders till the real tech head sculpts are ready, or maybe it's just bad photography. Hasbro's not know for the quality of their promo images. I seriously doubt they're gonna release figures with sub par likenesses. Loving that Taskmaster and Red Guardian is gonna be my favorite. Three David Harbour figures in the distance of a year, what side of Heaven or Hell did we wake up on?

As far as the whole price per product issue, Big Bad Hasbro better watch their six. Jazwares is gaining momentum in the action figure field and not only do they include accessories (look it up Hasbro), but almost all sculpts are unique, they all have additional face portraits and the price point is under $18. If they'd have gotten the DC license they woulda given ML a run for their money. And they're the kinda hungry where they woulda met Hasbro at 6.5" scale and tried to do it better, instead of doing the McFarlane "I just got good at 7 in. so that's what we're doing" thing. But truthfully, in the end if they start making too many waves, the big boys like Hasbro and Mattel will gang up on them, sue the pants off them and the then up in court so long that they have no choice but to crumble, just like they did with Toybiz.

From these pics it seems like a mixed quality wave at best. Worst thing obviously the fact that Red Guardian doesn’t come with Helmeted head, Crossbones has that terrible Hyperion torso and head that sits too high and makes that torso look even worse, face printing looks pretty weak as well and got most obscure version of Crimson Dinamo. On other hand Bucky and Taskmaster look great and even Black widow is pretty good figure but this more has to do with her having more comic book inspired look.

Right? I'm glad I have the 4" CD figure. But damn the thing was released back in 2010, I believe? Oh and let me correct myself: that was in the Marvel Universe size at the time, but was actually from the Iron Man 2 Action Series.

I'm glad you added "for this wave". Because it could (probably will) be done later on.

    • yesterday i did a bit of hunting and it was a pretty good success. i was looking for the demogoblin and skrull wave but i only found a couple. walmart has nothing yet. bare shelves. but i did stop by a couple walgeens and they did have the cuckoos. i found 5 of them, 3 at one and 2 at the other. i picked up a set of 3. i also found invisible woman human torch and superior doc ock at target and gamestop. i found it interesting that both target and gamestop had the same exact figs without variation. I did not pick them up because i plan on buying the whole wave together if i cant find them in the next couple days. I am happy with the cuckoos for now.   Here's what my local Walmart looks like all the time now. shameful. They had an abundance of marvel legends before i started collecting again. There were all ways a ton sitting in the clearance isle as well but now I'm lucky to find regular priced ones on the shelf. I have to go all the way in to another town to find any.
    • Marvel made the definitive Dracula with their Tomb of Dracula series, and I would love to see a figure with that in mind. I understand there's an "updated" version, but he's so removed from the iconic Colan/Wolfman character, he may as well be another vampire altogether. So yes please Hasbro make a Count Dracula from TOD, and make an "updated" one for the folks who like that too. Man, don't get me started on how fantastic a live action Dracula, based on TOD, would be...too extreme for Disney+ but another company could pick it up....
    • Yes, but don't you agree its about accuracy? Scarlett might not see the problem, but then she didn't see the problem of casting her as the lead for Ghost in the Shell either, so I'm not sure I can go with her judgement here. This isn't objectification; many of us have ranted on this same forum about Hasbro not giving Captain America his wings or making the Torch's head yellow. Cant speak for anyone else but I'm not saying I refuse to buy this figure or that its trash, just because its not totally accurate, but I am saying , If you're making a figure that's supposed to look like a particular thing/person, the figure should look that way.
