Rumor Report: New Marvel Legends Spider-Man Retro Carded FIgures?!?


Recommended Posts

The Mysterio retro release was a great improvement over the previous release, so any of these retro figures should be at that level of improvement. Lizard, and Sandman are in great need of a retro release (The BAF versions were WAY too big).

JTPrime writes in to let us know about three new Marvel Legends 6' Spider-Man figure listings that he has found. -SPD Vintage Retro Black costume Spiderman Product Number: F0230 -SPD Legen

I don't normally go along with "this figure is a total waste" type of comments but they really are pushing it now, arent they?  It might not be so bad, that if for every bizarre choice they make

I'm guessing we'll see Symbiote on the new retro mold, which is nice. Same with Web-Man but I could also see them doing pizza or Sunfire for that one. I assume Hobgoblin will be mostly the same, proba

I would love a new Sandman on the Hydro-Man buck. I doubt they'd do a brand new mold for Lizard but I would definitely buy a retro BAF Lizard with a more classic or Mcfarlane style head.

YES! The Hydro-Man buck would work perfectly for Sandman! I still love the BAF Lizard, but I just want one closer on scale to the other characters... but yeah, you are probably right about them not being likely to make a new mold.

I loved Romita's (senior, NOT junior) art for the Rhino...those puffy, squinty eyes and the sneer....he looked like the worse kind of dimwit- stupid, but with a vile temper and nasty streak. The head sculpt they used on that BAF was ridiculous.

Hobgoblin is long overdue, hopefully it will come with new headsculpt  similar to classic look with iconic fake eyebrows. Black Suit Spidey is another long overdue and  if it comes with pin less system it would be even cooler.

I've been holding off on assembling the outrageously expensive Rhino BAF hoping he would get a retro card release.  I don't know if they would do that in a wave; I'm guessing probably not.  Maybe he could get a standalone fan-channel exclusive release like The Kingpin from last year.

With all the iron fist molds over the years I'm surprised they haven't done a redo of the tarantula its basically the same costume

Pizza Spidey mold aged worse compared to say Shang Chi figure, so I'm glad we might get these figures based on Retro Spidey or Shang Chi body.

My preference would be a brand new Rhino on a smaller body, closer to The Thing than the Hulk. However, if they just re-release the BAF version (with a new head, hopefully), I would be good with that too. 

I also would not be opposed to a retro carded Sandman in this group, as I never completed that BAF either.

I would take a new, smaller Rhino just as happily.

A Sandman reissue would be a good choice and please a lot of people.  I thought it slightly less likely since the BAF was already the second release of that sculpt.

I think I'm fine with the black costume Spider-Man that came in the 2-pack with Kraven. Unless the new version on the brand new buck is truly spectacular, I'll likely pass on that one. But a new classic Hobgoblin sounds great. Can't wait to see him.

Completely agree about black suit Spiderman. Better be on the new buck.

A Rerelease rhino or lizard or sandman would be pretty dope for this maybe with some classic flair or not either way need em cuz missed em all. And a morlun, black tarantula, and shocker but not the bucky cap body.

I hope they give these Goblins some larger batgliders. The Toybiz version got it right, but the latest models have really been too small. What I really hope we'll see is the Spider-Man Iron Spider suit. Technically I dont think this was ever on the retro card but hey, if they're gonna go to the Electric Company then surely there's a place for that red & gold suit!

If it is a Spider-man character it is fair game in a Spider-man Retro wave, I just hope we get the opinion to make it either better or the Scarlet Spiders version

I really want comic Iron Spider as well. Especially if we can get that metallic red from Retro Daredevil. They haven't strictly stuck to official 90s figure releases for this line so I think really anything is fair game.

I think most here would agree- they're GONNA re do Rhino soon. Maybe as another BAF, maybe stand alone ala Kingpin, but either way, I'd hold off spending any $ right now. In fact I'm pretty sure the Hasbro team has as much as said they plan to re-do him. Anyone else heard that too?

And ROM space knight in a spiderman wave or an awesome andriod "Andy" would be so surprising yet amazing if they were to be made.

Well ROM wouldn't happen in Marvel Legends since Marvel no longer have the rights to him. Of course there would be nothing to stop Hasbro from making a 6 inch scale ROM figure

It might not be so bad, that if for every bizarre choice they make like this, a fan-requested figure, especially ones we've never seen but ask for a lot, came out alongside it.

Give me Red Wolf. Give me Firelord. Give me Warriors Three, or Mantis, or the Watcher, or Moondragon, or Titanium Man or Crimson Dynamo or Blue Marvel....

WARRIORS THREE!!!!!! How have they not made a 3-pack of them yet? Thor and X-men have a rich roster that's barely been touched.

At this point, I wouldn't say that the X-Men's roster has barely been touched. Sure, Thor's line-up is skimpy, but X-Men get a lot of love these days. Not that I'll turn down more X-Men, mind you, especially female villains.
