  1. The hasbro team may see their Legends staples in Spider-Man, The Avengers, X-Men and Iron Man (don't forget Wolverine) but its great when they do deep dives and make more obscure Marvel characters. When we someone like the Orb, it gives hope that more obscure figures could be coming. So who would you like to see? Arkon (shield, quiver, translucent lightning bolts) Deadly Nightshade (classic costume) Equinox Firebrand Killraven Mauler Namora (Agents of Atlas suit; Savage She-Hulk mold) Red Rajah Red Wolf Swarm

  2. One thing that needs to be fixed is the way that every review of a figure gets it's own thread. It isn't needed and I haven't seen any other forum do it. It makes the news forum full of repetitive threads, which gets confusing and forces other threads off the front page. It doesn't help that they all have the same title. The reviews threads should be all in one thread for that figure or even have a new section for all the reviews.

  3. Always fun to speculate and make wish lists. Whenever these come up I've got to stay with my "Home Team" and list my obscure Avengers that have yet (and most likely wont) to be made: 1 Starfox 2 Stingray 3 Dr Druid 4 Triathlon 5 Justice 6 Living Lightning 7 Firebird 8 Moondragon 9 Two Gun Kid 10 Swordsman Honorable Mention: comic Mantis, Jack of Hearts, Silverclaw, Death Cry, Lionheart, D Man, and comic versions of Sersi and Gilgamesh, Crystal, and until it's official Rambeau Captain Marvel. These lists get completed and I have the Vol.1 Avengers.

  4. This thing is ridiculous. Not only does it look like a 90's Toybiz figure with some added articulation, but the guys at DS don't seem to understand that guys like Human Torch and Iceman are not clear. There are people underneath the flames and ice. They are simply covering their bodies with the material their bodies generate. Sure, there are some alternate versions of the characters where their powers evolved and their bodies turn to that material, but these ain't the versions of those characters. I swear, it's like there's three or four separate teams at DS/MS, all independent of each other and devoid of communication or data sharing. Some of them do some good, fairly accurate stuff like Beta Ray Bill, then some other group goes and does some porcelain torpedo like this. It's almost like the entire reason for this figure was to make that negator belt and ice slide and the figure was just a rushed through afterthought. If I could get those two items without the figure it'd be cool. Glad I'm not a MS fan cuz there's no consistency in quality, the detail between figures differs by vast degrees, there is zero to little scale consideration and altogether there seems to be even less R&D about who these characters actually are and how their powers are represented.

  5. Love that Puff Adder and love that Caliban mold. I still maintain that Caliban figure was too large and should not have qualified as a BAF at all, but that is a good looking buck that I'm glad they got some use out of.

  7. I'm honestly surprised to see M in her Gen X look. I expected a more modern look, but love to see Gen X getting started. Her face looks a little weird to me. Chamber is perfect, though. Seriously shedding a single tear over here. Corsair looks great.

  8. It would work if they'd just put some effort into the paints they choose. In the first appearance of Madrox's containment suit, the yellow "sensors/electrodes/control elements" whatever, were clearly drawn as "metallic", so I see the effect they were going for. But instead their color choice came out as dull or mustard and doesn't go well with the green. I would think quality control would have seen that before production, but hey....

  11. If funky is starting to reveal stuff then ml are not too far behind. Rumor is it will be modok as the baf and there will be comic figures that have 2 new characters (egghead and crossfire ) and 2 new costume (sentient iron man and ultron. The 3 mcu above of course are the rest.

  12. How I love the way they did his boots. Clearly there's no reason not to get the Vision's boots correct or even the Stealth armor. Now that's some animated goodness. Wonder if Century and the other Force Works guys are on the way...

  14. There are some good Golden Age picks on your list, and they're definitely obscure. I would love to see them do a Golden Age wave or box set. Its criminal that we've yet to see The Human Torch, Sub-Mariner or Captain America in their first appearance forms yet. I'd add to that, Blazing Skull, Destroyer, original Vision, and Armless Tiger Man.

  15. I certainly like where everyone’s heads are at on the matter. I tried leaning toward who I found to be more obscure as I got further down the list. Otherwise, I would’ve went with all Avengers &/or X-Men members from the Bronze Age 😁. I feel like the rate for classic, obscure heroes is so low.

  16. I wouldnt call Annihilus "obscure" but yea I want his classic look too. Yeah thats something....I just realized, they haven't done Air-Walker yet. But for some reason I thought he was in the works. Where did I get that from?? Did anyone else hear that or have I just had too much egg nog....

  18. Team suits are my weakness. Though I'm not planning on getting any of these except Wolverine they look amazing together. @Atlantis, nice catch on the different hair styles on Banshee for the alternate heads. Odd choice by Hasbro. Are they daft or are they actually being collector friendly by giving fans more options for the inevitable classic suit version? I mean, those sculpts are clearly from different eras of Banshee's history.

  19. Glad to see the final version of Storm has the double jointed elbows. Again, not a big deal for me but I could see that rumble building. I still maintain that the first pics provided neither had the double jointed elbows nor bicep swivel, but it's all good now. Crisis averted. That was a close one. Gambit looks amazing and seeing that Banshee makes me want a classic version even more. I just don't think that Storm face sculpt looks all that great compared to the art it's supposed to be based on. Still gonna get it though. I suppose it can easily be swapped with another sculpt. Can't wait to see Psylocke, one of my favorite X-Men.

  21. as someone pointed out, it's pretty nice to see we are starting MLF and Mauraders with this pack, I wonder how long it will take to get some more of those characters though, folks like Wildside, Locus, Tempo and Kamikaze could be super easy for Hasbro to do, also for the Mauraders it would be easy to get us Arclight, Blockbuster, Harpoon, Riptide and Prism. let's hope they pop some more of these baddies into upcoming waves sooner then later.

  23. For those that may not know, Zero is an android that is a teleporter. He is a core member of the Mutant Liberation Front and Stryfe’s right-hand man (or is that Bot?). I’m pretty sure Zero showed up in New Mutants 86 - Cable’s first appearance. If I remember correctly, there are other versions of this android series. Cable had one named 11 in the future. I think that’s the only one that was ever seen.

  24. I don't actually mind Daredevil on the RYV body, I've always found that body too big for Spider-Man and I've always seen Daredevil as somewhat lithe. If anything, I want a less awkward Pizza Spidey type body with the articulation of the RYV body. The AF15 Spidey is my current preferred mold for Peter and I think this body for Daredevil would look good next to that one.

  25. This shows why I love the Bucky Cap mold. The "V" shape torso, the positioning of the shoulders, the thickness of the thighs. It just makes for a much more super heroic physique.

  26. I get the frustration over the buck they used for Daredevil (I totally thought the Vulcan buck would be the upgrade), but I do still love this one. The Elektra with that crazy hair will also be a unique addition to my collection, and the paint apps on the Bullseye head are so much better, making this set a win for me! All that being said, It is kind of ridiculous for Hasbro to still be missing the mark with size of buck for size of character. It would be incredibly easy for them to design 3 or 4 great new base male bucks and 3 or 4 base female bucks that represent a certain height range, and then design from there. The moment they update a buck they should already have a working list of characters it could work for, and if they have a desire to produce a character that they don't have an appropriate buck for, then they should create a new buck (it keeps their fans happy, and it keeps the line fresh and exciting). Hasbro gets a lot right, but the things they don't get right are just baffling.

  29. As the biggest DD Superfan it pains me to say I have no need for this set. Daredevil on the Spidey buck? No thanks. How bout on the Vulcan buck? Better yet, how 'bout making a super posable Bucky Cap sized mold? Also, nothing new for Bullseye accept for the color scheme, which wasn't worth it for me. If Elektra is on the Shriek mold I'll sling $50 for it on the secondary market. Another mailed in effort from Hasbro, but what else is new? Alert me when we get DD on the Vulcan buck.

  30. This actually looks alright, emphasis on alright, just another clear Iceman, although they did this clear very well (at least from these promo pics), it looks really quite like actual ice, applause to that, but I think they always do it wrong by just making him clear, he should be clear sure, but put a frosted wash overtop of the Clear, Iceman isn't just a hollow body of ice he has organs, the stand out from this is the really nice looking Ice slide effect, that's the best one any toy company has given us.

  31. Shown below via Morning Woof is a custom made Marvel Legends Generation X Mondo Build-A-Figure wave of figures. The wave consists of Jubilee, Chamber, Monet "M", Husk, Penance, Synch and Skin. The Buid-A-Figure of course is of Mondo. The figures are custom made and the packaging are mock ups representing what such a wave would look like if Hasbro where officially to do their own. What do you think, should Hasbro do an official Generation X themed wave?

  32. After dialing-in my classic Ant-man custom a few months back, I figured it wouldn't be right if I didn't construct a classic Wasp to accompany him. Recipe is relatively straightforward: Body is all MCU Ultron BAF Wasp. Head is a modified Sauron BAF unmasked X-23 head. I'm not really sure from which red figure(s) the hands originate. Antennae are cut from the Eye of Agamotto necklace from the Dormammu BAF Astral Strange figure. Her microphone was cut from the optical display on the superfluous Dirk Anger head. Everything else was fabricated from Apoxie Sculpt.

  33. I am really hoping this isnt what they're doing. The Sub-Mariner was their first superhero, and fundamentally changing him from an Atlantean to an Aztec just craps all over the writing and storyline done for him for the last 80 years. Its bad enough that they're doing it for the movies; doing it for the comics disrupts continuity not just for him, but a good deal of the Marvel Universe as a whole. Let the movies be their thing, the comics do THEIR thing.

  34. That's really been my issue, the limbs. His arms should be bigger than Red Skull's arms. I can't think of any arms that would have done it justice; as you mention, the closest candidate would be Havok's. They made new "sleeved" arms for the Lizard, so why not here. Using the Punisher buck, just put the jacket overlay on, tool on the turtleneck, keep the Punisher's legs (obviously recolor the boots and all), so that part would be solved. Maybe include an alt head that isn't smiling. Again.....this isnt a bad figure. It just could be better.

  37. LOL. Who'd have thought the zipper would be such a point contention. Agreed, it looks.......strange, but it is clearly a necessary evil in regard to the articulation of the legs. Had they attached it I promise there would be a whole other group complaining about the limited movement and had they made the bottom of the jacket wider to accommodate for the movement people would be complaining that it looked like a dress. I guess in the end the opted for function over fashion. Looks goofy, but I'll take it. It's that creepy smile that's giving me the ills. And what the hell is up with those weird ayass elbow joints? Weren't the Gambit jacket joints just fine?

  38. True. And after all, Bishop was trying to prevent his own horrible, vile, dystopic future from taking place by killing her. I can see his reasoning, while not necessarily being happy with it. Sometimes you have to make hard decisions; given what he knew at the time, Bishop's attempted assassination was the best option.

  39. One thing about DC figures, they didn't skimp on boot details like that. Whether its mattel or whoever, DC gets it right, but not hasbo. A warm, goodly number of supertypes have boots the end with a point at the knee (The Vision, The Batman, Hawkman, Star-Lord, Scarlet Witch, Ms. Marvel). Bizarre, because they have no problem doing unique, one-off (more or less) boots like Shatterstar and the Kree Sentry.

  42. Well played, Hasbro - you included a BAF I want in a wave I wasn’t planning to buying all of. LOL was only looking to pick up the Orb, Molecule Man, and Von Strucker. Now to decided if I want to buy the entire wave or chance the BAF on eBay. EBay BAF prices have been pretty high lately.

  43. Well, if Puff Adder is indeed the BAF that's another Serpent Society member to check off the list. It's weird how we haven't seen any female representation as they are all more or less repaint heaven, right up Hasbro's pipeline. I think it was @since83that mentioned how easy and how little work a Diamondback would have been by now. Plus we need to get our Captain America figures some sugar. Black Mamba, Asp, Black Racer, Fer de Lance, Coachwhip, none of them require any new tooling. This is a veritable repaint frenzy. You could use the Shriek buck to your little heart's desire. Hell, I bet we wouldn't mind all that much if you threw a Kate Bishop buck, or two in there at this point. You can wear those molds out, guys. Perhaps you maybe might make a little room for the newly G-Rated(ish) Moonstone buck. Fingers crossed. Also, with this sudden burst of energy by Hasbro to go back an "revisit" some of those older figures that used some of the old bucks from the Dark Days of ML, I'm hoping we can get an updated Constrictor. For it's time it was pretty good, but not only was that older Bullseye buck a bit dated, but Hasbro did something to it that made it more blocky and less detailed. It warrants a redo. Here's the tough love part. Hasbro, if and when you plan on redoing the Constrictor figure, listen now, we know you just love, love, looooooove that Sunfire buck and pretty much throw it at any character that has two legs and a Y chromosome, but this time it actually applies accurately. Constrictor would be perfectly perfect for the Sunfire buck. He is in that 5'10"/5'11" range, and he's fairly fit cuz he has to whip around those errr.......constrictors (anyone who's done the ropes at the gym knows his struggle), so he's got some muscle tone. That's all the pertinent and correct info on a silver platter. I've done all the leg work for you. I know it's a crazy concept to take accuracy into account, but hey, it's about to be a new year. Let's forget about 3 Silver Surfers, the one and only Firelord we'll ever have and even though Sasquatch is still a sore spot we can power through the pain. Let's start the year off right and get ML back on track. Whaddayasay? Now here's the great part. I'm officially offering you my research services for all and any future Marvel Legends projects. I know how busy you guys are and can't be bothered with all the effort it takes to research all the details of EVERY character you guys do, what with all the time you spend on Twitter insulting the fans, hiking prices, not doing alternate head sculpts when appropriate, feeding online personalities softball questions to ask you and all that jive. It's almost a full time job in itself, I understand. With that, I hereby propose that I will do all the research for you as far as how tall, how heavy and how fit any character should be before and even offer up my own humble suggestion for what might be the proper buck before you just feed any old mold into the machine and hit GO. I'm offering to do all the heavy lifting for you and I offer my service 100 percent FREE OF CHARGE. How's that for ya? Also, you can call me anytime, and I mean Anytime. Call me at work, call me at home, call me at the gym, call me at my daughter's dance recital, call me while I'm watching reruns of The Big Bang Theory or basically anything involving Kaley Cuoco, call me at the wee hours of the morning, call me at a funeral, I will answer, just reach out. I will whip out my handy phone/camera/computer/tracker/official ML research machine and get the info you need lickety-split, most of the time while you wait on the phone, depending on the strength of my service, of course. I know Google Search has served you well to this point, but let's be honest, sometimes they give you the wrong impression, right Omega Sentinel, Silver Surfer, Molten Man, Scorpion, Maestro, Hood and others? There are other resources out there that are pretty darn accurate and I have access to ALL of them. The interweb outside of Google is a virtual gold mine of information. I can do this and I will do this. That is my promise to you. How 'bout it?

  44. God damnit Hasbro, of course they put a Serpent Society BAF in this wave. I'm not interested in a single figure from this wave but I need that Puff Adder. I guess I'll try Dorkside...

  45. Ahhh, fantastic idea! Thanks bro, that is precisely the head portrait I'll use now! Actually, I'd much prefer Ronan as a regular or deluxe release, since I'm largely done with the BAF gimmick. My assuming first that he was a BAF was just my way of numbing myself against disappointment, lol.

  46. That Wonderman looks weird to me, it looks like it has some Ball jointed arms, that's new? and that's kinda ugly, also that weird off putting smile, anyways not like it dissapoints me since I don't like this outfit to begin with for Simon, but this looks less of a figure I feel like the people will want, all of those who really were asking for this, which was a ton of you. let's see that BAF already!

  47. With the specific "lessening" of the upper torso I hope this means the Moonstone buck will start to be more often used as an alternate female buck to the quickly becoming tiresome Shriek buck. Also, the Scarlet Witch buck with the shortened legs has lost it's spot in the rotation, but it was a good one. And then, whatever the hell happened to that mold they used for Rogue in the Rogue/Pyro 2 pack, the one that they were deeming the new "Powerhouse Mold"? It's a bit hard to tell because that Rogue had some sculpted lines and glued on parts that required removal before it could be used on other figures, but was that mold eventually modified into what is now the Shriek mold? Because I've never seen it since.

  48. Really loving this figure, as simple as it is, I always was a fan of this outfit for Moonstone, I'm happy with the re-release and with some updates, I always wished I had gotten my hands on that Thunderbolts set, and at least they are starting to get that box set re-released with this figure, we certainly need to see Satana and Ghost again, hopfully soon. either way, hoping this figure gets put up for pre-order here in Canada soon.

  49. Man this figure is awesome to me, sure it's just a repaint of the existing 2 figures, but since I failed to ever get any of those, this is a welcome release, this has some nice additional details that the previous figures didn't, only thing now is what am I gonna do about getting a bike for this guy?, I hope this figure is coming out for the rest of us soon, I've been looking forward to a GR for my shelf, now give us Ketch !!! , I'm also really excited for what they will do with these cardbacks in the future.
