  1. If you don't intend to whine about the choice of figures and disrespect the people who do like them, you might want to rephrase some of your post. You don't like a lot of the new reveals or how frequently they come out? Okay, that's your feeling, cool. But I for one definitely have asked for a Hammerhead on this board and even suggested how they could do it. I've also heard lots of people asking for symbiote Spidey on the retro buck and a new classic Shocker and Hobgoblin. So when you say "literally no-one asked" for these figures... uh, I think you're wrong there.

  2. Shown below is our first look at the new Marvel Legends comic based classic Dr. Strange figure from Hasbro. The reveal comes via Boog. The figure will be offered during Walmart's Collector Con event which takes place Oct 7-8. New items will be revealed each day from various companies at 7am PT.

  3. I can't go with this. Its an old, stale argument that just doesn't hold up. It reflects more on the fears of others, than actual policy. Until Hasbro specifically says they wont do it, then its on the table. Look no further than the Surtur thats available at stores like Target and others: for years on forums like this, collectors were convinced "devil" or "satan" like figures wouldn't be made, cause they "couldn't" go to retail stores. But Hasbro never ever said anything like this. Well nothing says "devil" like a big fiery horned demon; if that's ok ( and why wouldnt it be) then the name "mephisto" wont matter. Surtur should have put to bed, once and for all, this notion. Just because they haven't produced a particular figure yet doesn't mean its somehow forbidden.

  5. Just a head's up, HasbroPulse has the Hydra Trooper back in stock. No, it's not the brand new Skrulls or S.H.l.E.L.D. agents, but it does serve as a reminder that they do restock these exclusive troop builders a couple times a year.

  6. I wouldn’t bother. Dude is the king of stupid, lazy stereotypes, and he’s not likely to stop. He literally uses the term “China virus”. In other news, my five-year old has a small but growing Marvel Legends collection, which she loves, in addition to playing video games.

  7. With names like Vulcan and Darwin popping up, I would like to see another wave of current X-Men from the comics (House of X, Power of X, etc). I could see them doing the Betsy Braddock Captain Britain, Captain Avalon, Exodus, Kid Omega, a proper Kate Pryde, Doug Ramsey/Douglock, young Cable and Gorgon. Personally, I love the Hellions series so Scalphunter, Nanny and Orphanmaker would be great. Those might be highly unlikely though.

  8. Dang it, I hate going through Walmart for anything🙄. But after the latest reveals, a classic Lizard I’d say would be my top want for the Spidey shelf. My pick 10 goes as such: 1. Lizard. 2. Chameleon. 3. Tarantula. 4. Silver Sable. 5. Blade 6. Boomerang. 7. The Spot. 8. Battle-Ravaged Spider-Man 9. Molten Man 10. Dr Octopus. white suit (or TAS) I would *really* like to see Green Goblin happen again eventually. Those aren’t his retro boots we got and the green is kinda too sharp, imo. Wouldn’t expect to see him back on the retro card though so Id go with deluxe; more gadgets, mask accessory & a better glider with flight stand. Or enough stuff to justify being a deluxe or a rider. 🤷‍♂️

  11. You guys are crazy, I'd love a Sabretooth. I didn't start collecting until after the most recent 616 Creed came out and the secondary market is ridiculous for him. Give me a HoX or really any costume on the new Herc or AoA Sabretooth buck and I'll be so happy I'll explode. HoX design was great.

  12. Id love to get SABERTOOTH in his first costume. That's how I was introduced to him and it's his look from the Marauders!! I want Harpoon, Scalphunter, Vertigo, Riptide and Archlight! Now bring on Armored PSYLOCKE, Longshot, Maggot, Marrow and Dr. Reyes, Vulcan, Petra and Sway!!

  13. Yeah, they came out with a flying jump kick with the Siryn reveal but its just gotten more and more disappointing at each reveal since. They are doing absolutely no favor to the X-Men brand by rolling out the same old characters over and over. Sabretooth, seriously, another one? Yeah it'll probably be his classic fur collar look on the Odinson buck that Hasbro suddenly realized they had, but dayam! Last I checked there are a ton of X-Men like Pixie and Husk and Chamber and frikkin' Longshot that haven't been done yet. And how many current and former members of The Brotherhood are still waiting in the wings. Sure, this kinda layout is great for those that missed the 1st, 2nd and even 3rd releases of some of these characters, but what about all us who've been supporting the line from the start? We want some new faces, guys. We put our time in, we got ours when they came out the first time, we been here from the start. It's time to show out for us. I just freakin' know Bonebreaker is gonna be the BAF and I'm gonna have to buy this entire set of repeats just to get him. Here's to the last 2 reveals being another Cyclops and another Storm. This isht is effin' frustrating!

  14. Lizard needs an update something terrible for sure. Not only is the BAF a really specific niche design, I think it's also a bad figure, between its garbage knees and leg articulation and gappy head and neck. A classic replacement is a must have. Conversely Rhino is nearly perfect- give him a new head sculpt to differentiate the release and he could easily get repacked on a Kingpin sized Retro card. My picks for the rest of a retro Spidey Wave 3 would be Bombastic Bag-Man, Aunt May, Spot (with an alternate head that has Spidey's fist coming out of his face), Doc Ock (White Suit) and Alistair Smythe.

  21. They've repainted and re-released the 80th anniversary Hulk, like, four times already, but they've never changed his bottom half. This could be the time to release a version with purple trunks and bare legs that he had at the end of the Bill Mantlo run when he became smart Hulk for the first prolonged period and then in through the short John Byrne run. I also really want this ^^^ version of Boomerang. Could go in a retro Spidey wave to complete the original Deadly Foes lineup.

  23. I don't speak for anybody but myself. Never have. Never will. And I'm most definitely NOT part of a collecting community. I learnt respect at a very, very young age, in very painful ways. I didn't say "What everyone wants is this..." (though I did say "...that no-one asked for..." - and I'm sticking with that for THE MAJORITY OF FIGURES revealed) I didn't say "I know better than everyone else, and if you disagree with what I said you're an a-hole." Here's the actual words: This isn't a whinge about Hasbro's choice of figure(s) and I wish no disrespect at all to people who DID like, or love, these latest batches, and the frequency of the reveals in 2021. I guess the text is kind of offensive, isn't it? The whole 'What do posters think about FREQUENCY and CHOICE in respect of Marvel Legends in 2021?" was so off-colour, wasn't it? Boy, are my cheeks red. I'm a terrible person. What can I say? And then after that - knocking it up another notch - BAM! I gave MY view. Not the paid-for YouTube view. Not the Hasbro view. Not the Marvellous News view. Just mine. If you make the mistake of thinking everything you say is a fact and universally agreed upon, a priori, you are probably either (a). Donald Trump or (b). In need of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I mean, Tarot - are YOU the collecting community? Cartesian-dualism wise? Y'know, Cogito ergo sum and all that? Of course you are! Why, you 'know plenty of people who love all these choice' (grammer/syntax) so you must be. Don't patronise. It comes back with interest.

  27. I agree about the Eternals Legends wave. Even Hasbro had to sit back and think this is such an uninspiring group of figures. The best strategy therefore as you said: get them all out at once and move on to sure fire waves. i did enjoy Wen Wu’s obvious amusement of Trevor usurping his 10 Rings army. That set up one of the best cameos in years. People can say what you want about Iron Man 3’s “Mandarin “ twist, Trevor is a great character. Waaaaay better than literally everything Marvel’s Katy did.

  29. Ya know, I was going to challenge your take on this (since what I wrote is what I have experienced as Father, Collector and Consumer - clearly just as valid as your observation to the contrary), but then I read the end of your comment (Today's kids are mostly into gaming and Tide Pod snorting). I hope you realize how stupid and lazy that last bit was (It was never a MOSTLY thing, and that joke is a couple years old now).

  31. Very, very much this. If there's a retro-carded Iron Man wave in our future, or that fabled Avengers wave or whatever, this should be the centerpiece of the wave.

  33. If they make a classic inspired Lizard based off the baf, that would be some bullsh%! dude ha. He needs a new dedicated sculpt to be a classic Lizard. No way around that one.

  34. Apparently the entire list has been on Fwoosh and Facebook for days. I think JayC was just drawing it out a few days just to have something to report every day. No big deal, i was kinda disappointed the beans got spilled early. Anyway, Maggot? As far as angsty, grunge era, outcast, loner teenagers I would a chosen Random, but I guess Maggot will do. It's different, it's new, it's quirky and it tips the scale on this wave to have more new characters than repeats, which are still too many IMO.

  35. This is one of my top three. I love the look of the retro-carded blue and white Mr. Fantastic and Invisible Woman, but they both leave something to be desired. Invisible Woman - just fix her head, please. New face sculpt and better hair, ideally shorter. I wouldn't be opposed to some semi-transparent limbs like the Walgreens version had too. Mr. Fantastic - stretched torso, arms, and legs are a must, a stretched neck would be fine. It would also be cool to give him some kind of crazy weapon, like a blaster rifle or bazooka Ant-Man - classic Hank Pym. Retro Spider-Man body, improved helmet, interchangeable unmasked head; jet pack, ants, miniature Ant-Man accessories

  36. All I'm really hoping for is that the Captain America in the wave is a brighter variant of the 80th figure. That was a real win from Hasbro and I'd love to see it reused in different incarnations, especially his classic bright blue.

  37. Now that we're getting Maggot, I would hope that Marrow & Cecilia will get released in 2022. Stick them in an Operation Zero Tolerance 3-pack with Sabra, Iceman, or Gyrich and I'd totally be down.

  38. I really hope Sabertooth we getting is 90s style or modern costume like Dawn of X that is close enough to 90s as already shown in the thread, I would really prefer if they used Omega red body since it already has pegs for his fur piece and they can also reuse hands from Animated series Retro Venom.

  40. I don't keep the figures on their cards so the retro card design doesn't matter for me, I just happen to really like the figures we've gotten in this sub-line. I've got classic Spider-Man, Electro, Green Goblin, Kingpin, Black Cat, and Spider-Man 2099. I've pre-ordered everyone in the new wave except for Armored Spider-Man. I go back and forth on whether I want to get Jamison, Gwen, and Cyborg Spidey. More Spider-Man characters I want: The Lizard Spider-Girl (Mayday) Chameleon Six-armed Spider-Man (improved) Tarantula Tombstone (suited) The Rose The Spot The Enforcers (Montana, Fancy Dan, and Ox) Bagman Spider-Man Noir Spider-Man 1602 Venom (same as the new retro one without the red and blue accents) Sssstegron

  41. Speak for yourself, I've been craving for a classic 1st app Sabretooth since TB last made him. And the new 80s Herc buck is the ideal buck for Creed. My God, he's 6'6 not 7'6! No need to be on the Omega Red buck who's character is 6'11. Give him a mean gritted teeth head sculpt & open mouth snarling/ yelling head sculpt along with open raking hands and closed fists.

  42. The Retro cardbacks do nothing for me, but Spidey is my favorite Marvel franchise so as far as I'm concerned it's just a great excuse to get more waves dedicated to Spider-Man, but free of the influence of movie stuff I don't want. I wish they were BAF waves. One of my favorite things is seeing civilian figures. I've said for years that Aunt May, Mary Jane, Jarvis, etc are just as important as our traditional hero figures are. Seeing Jameson, Gwen and Peter gives me hope that we'll see more of that. Aside from that, any excuse for mid tier jobber villains the better, because Spidey has the best Rogues Gallery in the business.

  46. Windsor-Smith was awesome, but I gotta agree with the Buscema and Perez crowd. Windsor-Smith had that organic painteristic style that translated better into watercolor, especially in his faces which had kinda that dead-eye look to them. His art is beautiful to be sure, but as far as comic book style art, guys like Perez and Buscema and Byrne and Cockrum are the standards.

  47. I assumed that before they released a female SHlELD agent troop builder we would get a Maria Hill figure, and THEN they would reuse the body for the trooper. Again, Dwight said they have four or five potential troop builders in the wings. I would not be surprised if a female SHlELD is one, and based on the Skrull selling out I bet a kree trooper is another.
