  1. I'm not likin' the 3 3/4 line just coz Hasbro would have an excuse to hike the price on the larger 6" line to $15. These MU's will go in the $8 to $9.99 range like I now see for the Star Wars line. I may not be Edgar Cayce but that is the writing on the wall. And the affordable hobby would become unaffordable. That is a fact when 2009 rolls in !! Note: And when MLegends becomes unaffordable, sales dip and Hasbro has all the more reason to discontinue the 6" line.

  2. Why is everyone surprised with the MS Iron Man's size? It is the Marvel Select line (7"). Of course he is in synch with MS Thor or MS Hulk! I don't know why everyone thinks MS is supposed to be in tune with Marvel Legends (1/12), just because Marvel Legends Lord Thor, BAF Ares and Series 3 Thor are out of scale (7") and as big as the Marvel Select line doesn't mean they are all gonna be perfect line to be an alternate or substitute with Legends. The only figure could realistically be passable to ML is MS Hulk since he can be driven to an insane size if agitated enough as in the Movie version.


    On another note, since I am a scale Nazi supremo, the photo shows Wonder Man (I consider him on my list of Top pin-headed characters along with Black Panther, FFML Silver Surfer, FFML Thing, HR Iron Man, new Vision and Vindicator).

  3. For now Hasbro realistically stated they are going the 2-pack route for Marvel Legends

    so here's mine:


    Wave 1

    New Thor and new Loki

    Havok and Polaris

    Silver Surfer (upscaled to 6.5", taller) and Firelord


    Wave 2

    Warpath and Darwin

    Korvus and Vulcan

    Gladiator and Lilandra


    Wave 3

    Wrecker and Mr. Hyde

    Photon and Starfox

    Ultron and Titania


    Wave 4

    Jim Lee Cyclops and Jean Grey

    Sebastian Shaw and Emma Frost (new sculpt)

    Sauron and Magneto


    Wave 5

    Terrax and Nova (Frankie Raye)

    Blink and Mimic

    Titanium Man and Crimson Dynamo


    Wave 6

    Enchantress and Skurge (Executioner)

    Medusa and Scarlet Witch

    Ultimate Namor and Ultimate Thing

  4. Hasbro is showing its lack of commitment to Marvel Legends in this situation and limiting production of the exclusives. With their recent Q & A's galore talking about excitement for the Marvel Universe and some murky replies when it comes to Marvel Legends, how can they be so vague? DC Universe is going full blast with their waves and waves of BAF's and all we get from Hasbro is Duh . . news of their small Lilliputian, cum Star Wars sized figures. C'mon, why are they thinking this is gonna be the second coming of 3 3/4" figures. Let GI Joes be GI Joes, Star Wars be Star Wars and leave the Marvel line at Marvel Legends scale.

  5. The answer to the question might be misleading and double-edged, meaning he could be referring to super teams be made in 3 3/4" scale as opposed to Marvel Legends. Remember, they are willing to cater to us, but on a different scale. As long as we are interested in Marvel, they are not distinguishing between Marvel Legends and Marvel Universe. If we buy these smallies, then they are ready to drop Marvel Legends altogether. So be careful what you wish for these "Super Teams". I am NOT buying these smaller figures at all.

  6. I read Essentials everything out of the public library. I don't have the shelf room at all to collect these. And my public library has lots of these from trade paperbacks to the Essentials and my favorite Trade Paperback/Graphic novel would be the Hulk encountering these gamma powered beings enhanced by this secret organization using his irradiated blood and the last issue has him facing the Abomination as the Finale. It is titled . . . .Abominable !!

  7. The only thing that bothered me most is the treatment of the ML line by Hasbro. They simply expected a windfall from that contract and forgot how to earn our respect.


    I have said it before, if they treated the Marvel products like they do Star Wars and GI Joe, no one would ever complain about anything, except, when is the next wave hitting.


    When the Sigma Six figures normally have better movement than Marvel Legends, for more money, something is wrong. Plus Hasbro acts as if packing in accessories outside of the BAF part is too much to ask for.


    If they would go back to listening to the fans (like Spiral, AOA Sunfire, etc.) things would be better.


    Also, Mattel beat Toy Biz to the BAF punch with the JLU 4'-inch line, but most people did remember ML for how they up the ante with huge figs like the Sentinel and Galactus. Now, Mattel is stepping up and giving us accessories and C&C (BAF) figures that the people want. Can't wait for Kalibak, Atom Smasher, and Metallo.


    I like Kalibak, he can be my Ulik, if Hasbro can't make one for Marvel Legends. Just like I'm eyeing DC Ares for a future Executioner custom.

  8. Well, I don't collect action figures just coz and definitely not a completist. I am neither a rabid Marvel fan or a DC diehard, but I do know when a figure is worth my dollars be it Marvel Legend or DC Universe. So, I have not bought any recent Marvel Legend lately from the newer waves besides Mr. Fantastic and Dr. Doom. and Ares from (4 Horsemen) DC Universe. If they stand out, and catches my attention then I buy them. My latest acquisition being that 12" bundle of awesomeness, Master Chief (HALO 3) that I spotted in a Fred Meyer store. Pure joy to dsiplay in my pad.



    i respect that bro! i truly do. i LOVE batman, but i wont just buy anything they make of him. i did just buy this a coule of days ago though.(bat pod)


    I love that pic, but can he turn his head and look forward and not crash his bike? Or does he have an LCD display to show where he's headed ?
