The wholesale prices on Legends are actual garbage. It's basically impossible to make a profit off the line at MSRP. $35, though? That's pushing it. $25 to $30 is what a $20 figure should cost in order for a store to make a comfortable margin. Though, as a consumer, I wouldn't pay that either for most figures. I had to bite the bullet and raise the price of Legends to $21.50 at my store this year. I was actually losing money on sales at $20, let alone on pegwarmers.

I wonder if Hasbro is having their toys shipped to the US from China, then shipping them to the rest of the world. Their prices would probably be a lot better in Europe if they had European fulfillment centers that could receive the goods from China directly. Shipping from China is cheap, but shipping from the US is murderously expensive.

That's probably the reason. Shipping and taxes is the main reason I don't buy much online

I was pretty happy he is only $30, don’t care about the packaging, felt that the Venom and Archangel wereover-priced, even if they were $30 at release..of course this is just my opinion feels like they could get $35-40 for Kingpin ( this guy is heavy, large figure)..don’t feel like Hasbro is taking us on this one

I dont know If I really need a new one, I managed to get a full BAF and also build a second one for Shadowking, Im torn between getting this new one so both charaters are diferent in my displays but I kind of like the BAF look better than this one for Kingpin, I dont know I guess time will tell.

I didn't realize the collar area could be swapped out on the torso during production.  Or maybe the cravat is an overlay.  Either way, I didn't expect a variant that would look so classic.  Nice.

The collar could be a overlay I dont see Hasbro resculpting the whole chest just for the ascott seeing how everything else is the same (they didnt make a new head just painted the screaming head with damage) so I think itll probably be an extra piece just put on top of the previous chest.

Right, that's what I said it probably was, too.

I'm glad that this is getting re-released, even if it's at a 33% price increase over what it was originally sold at. I chose to pass on it the first time around because I already had both the Hasbro BAF and the Toy Biz versions and have always kind of regretted not getting it. I'm definitely pre-ordering it this time.

Man, Hasbro just be reissuing all kinds of stuff, aren't they?

A couple of different Optimus Prime figures, the Ghostbuster Transformer, Deadpool and Wolverine ML figs, and now this.

"Why make new figures when we can just rerelease old ones?"

As long as people buy the old re-issued figures at a higher price, there's no incentive for hasbo and co. not to,,,,

I am kinda annoyed about this one. I got the original, who had been out for months at that point, after XMas with a gift card, and my wife talked me out of opening him. I had just built the Baf version. He then rose to over 100 bucks on the after market. Welp, they took that win away from us.

Glad for everyone who didn't pull the trigger before, but dang.

This is a re-issue I'm actually very pleased about, I was silly enough to pass on this guy and I regretted it quickly, at the time it was a real what to pick type of time, and I generally say nah to people in suits, but I knew I needed a Kingpin, since I sold my BAF parts off, but I thought I'd have a chance with this guy at some point turned out nope, so I have been Kingpin-less in my collection, I've been trying to find this one for some time, the prices are wild, Well now I guess here we are and I can get a Kingpin again, Instant Pre-order.

Hey Hasbro how about re-issueing that Professor X? wink nudge nudge.

I'd like them to re-issue the Hellfire Club set. I got one but not everyone was able to. Sure would be nice for fans who missed out.

I’d LOVE  to see Shaw get another release but w/ the green pants, yellow sash and a bare, buff torso 👍
