  1. Actually, thier taking questions for a new round on some sites right now.
  2. Truth. I too am a Marvel fan first. I've always loved Marvel Comic and still read the bulk of them today, so my ML's are my drop dead favorite line. I collect alot of other lines and have since childhood. GI Joe, Transformers, Star Wars, and they would all go first were I to have to sell any of my collection off. I totally agree with the thrill of the hunt for most people. Using GI Joe as an example, in many of it's recent decade long incarnations I've noticed my interest come and go. Recently when everything shifted to Sigma Six, I just didn't care as mush about my Joes. But with this line I always knew there would be more of the 3 3/4 figs around the corner, but if it were in haitus for an extended period of time my interest would definately fade. Actually with these new movie figures replacing the 25th line, I'm already losing interest. I'm sure the same goes for ML with alot of people. As far as needing cash, I totally understand. I sold alot of my vintage Star Wars and prized baseball cards for college back in the 90's. I hated it but it had to happen. Here's hoping that Hasbro gets back on the ML wagon here at SDCC, and we see something that interests us all to draw us back to the line.
  3. The guy who found them in oregon is the same dude who used to run the Marvellegends.net site. I'm sure he's pretty connected seeing as he is one of the ML guru's out there. I got mine from the silver snail as well. So glad I did, cause otherwise I'd be going crazy right now. I hate waiting for toys, it's childish I know, but some childish things stick around when you're young at heart.
  4. So I just was visiting the Fwoosh, and someone who was at Philly-con posted a rumor that Jesse Falcon would reveal new legends Saturday Afternoon at a Toy Panel. Sure enough, the man delivered. Pics were shown of X-Force WARPATH, Current MULTIPLE MAN, and LADY BULLSEYE! These are 6" legends and supposedly there is more news to come either at this con or at SDCC!! MARVEL LEGENDS LIVES!!!
  5. I just got mine! All of them plus the 2 variants. Can't wait to get home and pop them open! FYI, I thinl they look better in person, especially Nova.
  6. Since there are many Deadpool & Gambit fans here, I thought I'd let everyone know that they just showed up at HTS this afternoon. shipping 3/9. I can't get over how big DP's sai is!
  7. Then your retarded. Say you were going to sell a game to your friend, but he would pay more for a different one. Would you still sell him the first one? It's simple business practice. Your retarded too. Read the news, then discuss. Wal*Mart and Target are two of the three biggest stores that sell toys. If your line isn't carried by either of them, then you're in a bad place. And yes, shelf space does matter. The more figures you can fit on a shelf, the more figures you can sell before re-ordering. Again, it's simple business sense. The fact is Marvel hasn't had a good 3 3/4" line, and there is a strong market for the figures in that scale. The 6" line, on the other hand, is running out of characters to make. That's why Toybiz switched from a 5" scale to a 6" scale ten years (or so) ago. They can re-sell the more popular characters that don't fit in with other scales. That way the parents will recignize the characters, and the collectors don't feel bad about buying another Spider-Man. And switching over to an online only line would kill it even faster. There would be lower runs on the figures, which would drive the prices way up. Steel Molds aren't cheap. You have to sell a certain number of figures to get the money back, and make a profit to buy more molds. MOTUC can survive because it has a strong fanbase of collectors growing up watching the show, and if it were in stores, it wouldn't last. The Nemesis and Two-Packs were delayed to give something to 6" fans while they were building up the MU line. It's near impossible to have multiple lines of the same property sell at the same time, especially when they are in two different scales. Uhh, Mods should not be attacking posters. Calling people retarded just isn't cool, and you're supposed to be better than that!!!! Look, alot of us are pissed, and even with our "sense of entitlement issues", we'e allowed. But the mods have no right to be attacking people you're suppossed to be better than that. And your points aren't very valid either. Given the support & customer respect that Mattel employs Hasbro's ML could survive online. But that would require them to answer the questions in the Q&A's, Respect thier fandom, endorse thier lines and actually have confidence in thier product. Many ML collectors would support online sales, but Hasbro fears that because of the GI Joe online debackle a few years back. Yes in would mean higher prices but face it, that would happen regardless. Yes molds aren't cheap buy there are plenty to kit bash from if done right, and plenty of A listers that have changed in the comics since thier last incarnation. (i.e. Cap, Thor, Goblin, Extremis Iron Man) heck, following the DCUC format that's enough anchors for 4 lines. These done well could still sell through Diamond or HTS. Multiple lines seems to be working just fine for DCUC & DCIH. Why not Marvel? Marvel has multiple films coming that could support multiple lines. That said, respect your fellow fans and stop cutting them down.
  8. I just REALLY hate that "pick 5 for the Marvel Universe" poster. It's like they took all the ML's we always wanted and slapped them on there. It really pisses me off that they take all the ML fans dream figures and tease them for the smaller line. It's disgusting and insulting to a long time fan base. Yes, some of those figures in the MU look good but they leave a bad taste in my ML mouth. Can you all understand that anger?
  9. Add this little tidbit poster reaveals "Gigantic Battles" for the MU. http://www.toyark.com/news/attachment.php?...tachmentid=3584 Could these be compatable with ML's?
  10. In the MU scale. This just feels like a slap in the face to people who have wanted a Firestar figure in ML for years. To see it in 3 3/4 angers me. :hulk: There are also some pics up around the collector community of new SHS 4 packs, (one with the BLOB), new MU figs, and the Wolverine and the X-men toys. Not alot new yet, but there is more to come, I hope. I know Jesse said there would be new ML news here originally, then reposted that he meant SDCC, but I still hold out hope that we ML collectors will get more than a "wait and see" approach. Anyone else have news?
  11. Got 'em. Legends already sold out of them ALL! So CMDstore is the place to go to get them.
  12. Legends Action Figures is SOLD OUT! Just bought them from CMDstore. Pricey, but I'd rather spend my money on the Nemesis wave than any MU offerings. I'm so excited!!!
  13. Well, Jesse chimed back at The Fwoosh. Apparently he made a mistake with his announcement about the 6" line at NYCC. I guess he meant to say SDCC is the venue where we'll get our ML news. But don't worry, the MU line will be being shown at NYCC. <sarcasm> Good Grief! Just when we had something to look forward to.... link http://www.thefwoosh.com/forum/viewtopic.p...9&start=375 third post down
