  1. Got them today.





    These 2 look good, but im still annoyed that they are shrinking the figs, keep them the same size!!! big figs shoudl be big (like juggs) small figs should be small (like moleman) TRANNTULAA shoudl be the same size of atleast spiderman 6" hasbro!


    No offense, but Juggy's dome looks like my friend's girlie toy when she needs to get off on those cold wintry nights. Batteries included ???

  2. These are not always cast-offs or factory errors. These are carded merchandise and they must have an arrangement with the local distributors from where these are actually manufactured (China). It's a known fact that collectors in China, Hongkong or Singapore get first shipments before us in the mainland. Our advantage here is that we get the running changes if there's any flaws in the early runs. To those who try to get ahead and obtain "early" product, well you gotta pay up (EBay) or have good hookups.

  3. I collected these figures because I've wanted great sculpts and poseability and the satisfaction of displaying them in my workplace and at home in my family room as a souvenir from my old comic book reading days. It really is not an obligation to get every figure available and therefore I am not completist. I only have about 50 and if the sculpt is marginal and articulation mediocre (like AW) I pass on it. The mediocre ones were left on the store pegs and there were lots of them both from ToyBiz and Hasbro. Some were excellent sculpts but not painted too good so I added my own touches. If I spot a good 3 3/4" figure I might get one to go along with Ben Grimm from 2006 Super Hero Showdown. Maybe Norin Radd and Ms Marvel and that's it.

  4. July was only 4 months ago!! They've had a ton of product come out since July and a ton more to come!


    And the only person who reported the "Retailer Seminar" was you. I'm not saying you're lying or anything, but I'm not about to panic because of one person's "insider report".



    Just to use a comparable product as an example, DCUC showed us wave 5 and 6 at SDCC, and wave 7 and 8 images have shown up since then. because that line is still in production.


    And I'm not sure why Retailer Seminar is in quotes. Are you implying Hasbro didn't invite all the retailers in the country to Pawtucket in June? It happens twice a year. I will tell you that when my buddy gives me another update from the next one, I won't bother telling you guys.




    I'm curious....did you know anything about the Rulk or Ares waves before they were revealed? Especially Ares??


    Just because they haven't shown product yet doesn't mean the line is dead for Pete's sake. Hasbro has always kept it hush with this line from day one, only revealing at Con's. They unveiled the rest of 08's lineup at Toyfare/SDCC this year, and I suspect they will reveal more at Toyfare '09 for next year's lineup.


    Marvel Legends is not dead. It is probably on hiatus for now. They're making a go of the MU for now, just like Superhero Showdown. When it tanks, expect Marvel Legends to reappear like the Phoenix rising from the ashes!!
