Not a bad bunch of reveals. A few misfires but that Zabu wave is a must have minus that silly Superior IM. Hopefully he doesn't have a piece for the BAF. My favorite is the SHIELD 3 pack.

IM is indeed the "no baf" double pack. I was hoping it was Cable. He could have at least come with a huge gun for Cho'od to weald! He is a nice sculpt, just not a big Cable guy. But he's a small price to pay for Zabu!

There was a time when I would be happy about getting new Marvel Legends figures and I would have bought most of them..but now I've gotten to the point that I just don't really care...Sad sad day that I've reached that point, But to all who are happy and want these I'm happy for you.

Man, I feel ya.
I used to salivate at new Marvel Legends.....like my eyes would light up.
Now, I nod my head at the really impressive ones................and I'm not nodding a lot..........and pffft at the rest.  What's being offered isn't enough to overcome the price-point asked, and THAT is the buzz-kill for this line. I cherry-pick like crazy now, and wanted characters ( who are prominent in my head, like, say.......Karnak) get pushed down my want list for other characters....in other lines.
ML has been going so long that it's getting merch fatigue.
It needs to offer MORE, not less--to rekindle the interest and passion in it.  It has very much plateaued and that's as bad as stagnation.

I feel your lament about passing stuff by nowadays. Maybe world circumstances will help our incomes catch up to the probably legitimate cost of our hobbies.

The price-point ain't gonna go down, unless they sacrifice stuff. What can they axe?  All accessories?  Paint apps? Articulation?   That's not the way to go.
The price pint the figures are at need to have plusses.   More than just a couple of extra hands, or a extra head sculpt, or a single effects piece--though those are starting points.  There needs , imo, to be more value-for-the-dollar.......not less.  Now, what the mechanics are for Hasbro to do this, I don't know, and I don't care.  From my cheapskate consumer POV, I want meat, not just bones. I want my steak AND some good sizzle. And mushrooms......I like mushrooms now.....and maybe some sauce.......
Okay, I digress.
I want a reason to collect,...other than just filling holes. I don't want the shell game--the Malibu Stacy w/ HAT nonsense that is "Character X" offered one year, and the .......ahem....upgraded......better/more accurate "Character X v.2" offered the next year.  i want to enjoy this line, not feel take like I'm some stupid mark.

Bro, I agree 100%. My problem is seeing other alternative lines even their own (I know that they own some of those properties) and ML is just behind. To me, it's their lack of modern articulation which they have shown to do but don't apply throughout the line, and that's why I passed on so much nowadays with ML. I like the cable here and I'm disappointed they didn't use the Hyperion diaphragm joint on the herc buck, but I will still get that and everything else either clearance or complete pass.

Just was doing my taking more peeks at these reveals, and my peepers noticed the weirdo Black dancing shoes Sharon Carter has on, what's that about? I really don't recall any times she has worn shoes like that, it looks aesthetically displeasing, it's a nice figure until those jarring shoes, I need confirmation she was wearing those in some source material, because if they are just some strange thing Hasbro came up with it's bugging me. I also realized they are saying Carnage is...on the Knull buck? hmmm not even sure how, since this figure looks just like the same body as the Venompool wave, if he was on the Knull body he'd be a bigger figure, this does not look like that, so what's that all about, anybody know?, if he really is like some big tall Carnage, then Hasbro probably going to make me fuss about trying to get it, since I can't be controlled and must army build Carnaaaggees, so I hope this is just what it looks like Venompool Carnage with some extra stuffs.

I like that Cable. Not necessarily because it is obviously made to look like the video game but because it looks rather unique from the previous version. Much like the new Bishop looked much different and better than the previous version. If he matches up correctly size-wise he will be my new display version. But these pictures aren't giving me much confidence. From what I can see he's looking a bit undersized for what an accurate interpretation of Cable should be. If he's not right it's no big deal because the last figure is still not bad.

Feeling pretty confident now. The thing is they already pretty much have a body mold for him. A few small changes to the Ragnarok Hulk. That figure is pretty large and almost stands toe to toe with the standard Hulk mold.

Yeah the Gladiator/Ragnarok Hulk build is pretty much perfect for Skaar (in terms of Hasbro using what they already have in their toolbox), I'm sure that's going to be what they are using, seems very likely anyways, and I'm cool with that.
