  1. Cozzman, play nice. We, as Americans, should not be rude and if you think about it if the shows in the UK were so horrible then why are most of them made into US shows like the Office, 3 Company to mention just a few. If you guys want to keep going back and forth then pm each other and leave this out of a mainstream thread. Can't we all get along!?!

  2. What is the big deal over Marvel Legends? All I hear are people screaming "MORE, MORE, MORE!!!"

     

    Listen, not everybody collects Marvel Legends...I don't. I was never that thrilled with them. Back when Toy Biz was doing them, most had sloppy paint jobs, and looked dirty due to the excessive washes/dry brushing. The Hasbro ones look better, but are too expensive for my budget.

     

    Personally I do not think that a smaller scale figure will be better in so far as accuracy and a well done paint job (look at Ironfist and some of the close up of the other characters).

     

    With the Toy Biz line and the Hasbro line, there are something like 250 different figures. So what are you people complaining about? You have tons of characters you would never have gotten before.

     

    People need to stop freaking out over this change to 3 3/4" and embrace it. Plastic requires petroleum. You do know about the whole oil/gas thing, right?

     

    Smaller figures cost less to produce and package, take up less shelf space, and are cheaper to ship. All good for the manufacturer and the retailer.

    With the prices going up for the 6" then that means the 3.75" will probably the price that the 6" are now.

     

    For the consumer, they cost less to buy, enabling you to buy more characters, take up less space to display, and will offer a greater selection of characters due to decreased production costs.

     

    Furthermore, all the ML people need to stop being so damn selfish. You've got 250+ figures...if Marvel Legends died tomorrow, it would still be the largest, most comprehensive Marvel toy collection EVER. How bout giving the rest of us something to look forward to?

     

     

    I am more than happy for you to start a new collection. And I am happy with mine. I think I speak for everyone who is enraged because we were promised so much and given so little. Yes there were over 250(?) action figures made,but how many were duplicates? If this line is to die, then Hasbro should have the decencey to have a poll of the most wanted figures and do a last BAF with 8 figures of what everyone one of us collectors voted for! That would be the best thing for Hasbro to do for us who have bought a lot of duplicates to complete the BAFs.

  3. I really think that the Ares wave is a test for us that if we buy them then the BAFs will continue and if they don't sell like the FinFangFoom line then they might let it go. So I am going to get this wave just on principle. I do not need all the repaints,but I will do anything to keep Marvel legends 6" line going and hope that they continue the BAFs. If not, then I hope that they will continue with the 2packs. I really would like boxsets though as well!
  4. We all love ML and we love collecting marvel figures (the comics stuff forget the movies) so now it seems the ML days will be ending and the 3 inch thingy will arrive. Is there any of you ML collectors out there who will not buy the 3 inch? if so then what will you get to satisfy your marvel needs.

    I was a bit confused on what to do, i was hoping to complete my marvel universe in ML format but it seems that hasbro killed that dream. I would be lying if i said i wont collect the 3 inch so i guess i wil just buy both and hope we still get MLs even if its only 2 packs. Maybe easglemoss figurines can satisfy some of you marvel collectors out there since they r doing the whole marvel universe.

     

    I am definitely not going to buy the 3.75" line. I started with 6" and will not go back and start over. If Hasbro couldn't take the responsiblity of this line then they should have left it with Toybiz/Marvel who did not give up on the BAF line thet started. I hope the two packs continue, but I will be happy with what I have and if I miss anything then I will look into customs.

  5. For BAF, I have: Galactus, Sentinel, Apocalypse, Onslaught, Giant Man, Mojo, Modok, Annihilus, Blob, Ronan, Queen Brood, and now FIn fang Foom. They only ones that I am missing is Sandman (wish I had it, only a few shipments cam to my area) Red Hulk, Nemesis, and Ares. I really hope they don't stop the ML line or BAFs. BAFs were smart, thats was makes me buy the whole series. I don't care if they make the BAF 6 in, just come out with a BAF with very series. they could but in a un-wanted toy that kids won't want, but we would love.

     

    I could not have said it better!! I have all BAFs and really how many Wolverines does one really need? Not that I don't like him in his many incarnations, but really I did not need ultimate Wolverine just to get Blob(which I have been waiting for to complete my Brotherhood of Evil mutants first team). I hope hasbro isn't discouraged about continuing BAFs in the future-I'll even go so far as to get the Ares wave just to keep it alive (I already have Vision,Ironman and Kang)!!

  6. I found the UPC for the ML 2Pack!

     

    It is 065356933256. And the Walmart unit number is78417. If you go to Walmart just have anyone who has a hand held scanner and they can look it up for you. They can find out if any are on their way, if it has been ordered and if any other Walmarts have them in your area. I used this last night and found out that none were in my area, but they were ordered for this particular store! Hope this helps. Get them before the scalpers do-they are going for $50 on ebay >:^(

  7. Ronin and Forge look sick. Looks like Ill be buying them off Ebay. I wish there was stores that sold them here in Korea ;;

     

     

    To all those who have obtained the two packs. Please,please post the UPCs. My friend that used to work at Walmart says that it would be better to have this so that I can find these 2packs. So please post them here! Please. And in case I forgot, please.

  8. I talked to the toy dept manager at my wal-mart and they have their resets this week and they are supposed to be setting alot of things out Sat. She showed me a memo and it had on there not to put out until12:01 Sat 7-26-o8. Now I know that alot of people have them and this memo may not include them, but I would look in the next few days to see them more .

     

     

    Added to this I went to Walmart and saw that they had print out of how the action figures will be displayed and there right in front of me was Marvel Legends Twopacks to be placed below the pegs on the first shelf. I saw an implimentation dates were 7/25 and 7/26 at different Walmarts so the Hunt is on!!! I never going to sleep cause I will be there at midnight and the crack of dawn to make sure I am the first to get them before the scalpers hit!

  9. I finally got the last 3 pieces of FFF! I got Doc Samson(the one I really wanted since I 1st saw the pic), Absorbingman and Grey Hulk! I went to Walmart (in L'ville,Ga) late and looked at the peg display and it stated that there were hulk legends to be placed so I asked one of the stockers and he went in the back and opened the box rite in front of me and lo and behold there were the last ones! YEEEEEEEAAAAAAAH! So now I get to build FFF! BTW, there were 2 Absorbingman,Doc Samson,Grey Hulks and one of King Hulk and one Wendigo. Anyway, now onto the 2 packs!
