What newer costumes should Legends tackle?

My brother had this guy in the 90's Toy-Biz line. It's funny they made a toy of him since he hardly wore it. It looks cool enough for a figure in my book!

Toy Biz made a load of obscure characters and looks, I picked up a Killspree figure in a second-hand shop and discovered he appeared in about two issues

Those were the days. Could you imagine if demand was as how now as it was then? Of course they also did a lot of modern figures, which would cut against my collecting tastes.

That original Toy Biz line just always made the current version of any character they tackled, at least for the first few years. Otherwise, I doubt they would have chosen what ended up being relatively obscure looks for some characters. I loved those figures so much when I was a kid.

They did make some box sets of the original five X-Men and the Giant Size X-Men teams, but you are right that they mostly focused on the comics.

It's funny when I see collectors complain that Hasbro supposedly does too many modern characters, when ToyBiz was churning out people nobody even remembers anymore like Senyaka and Killspree. Hell, Deadpool ended up taking off in a major way, but he'd only had a few issues under his belt when he got his first action figure too.

Senyaka is actually one of my top-ten Legends wants. 🙂

Yeah, I get you. I think the difference is explained by whether one still reads the comics. I don’t, so I don’t appreciate the new ones as much. I did when I was a kid, so I liked the modern offerings from Toy-Biz. With that said, I also liked when they released vintage characters, which they occasionally did.

The thing is most collectors are wiser and more cynical when it comes to new characters, and of course older than they were when the X-Men toy line came out. It reminds me of Squirrel Girl and the 93 annual characters, going to prove you don't know who will be a success and who won't
