  1. I started w/ Legends in it's glory days. Hell, i've been collecting Toy Biz since the Xmen line of the 90s. I LOVED Legends and got all the SMC, HC & FFC that I could back when toy biz was in control. When I saw Hasbro was taking over, I just threw my hands up and sold everything. Then around....oh I don't know, '08 or '09, I started over and REALLY got into it. Now my collection is ridiculously massive but there are so many other lines out right now that I'm honestly enjoying more, namely MOTUC. I re-arranged my detolfs yesterday and MOTUC went from taking up 5 squares to 2 full detolfs w/ likely more space needed in the coming 12 months. Plus factor in things like Masterpiece Transformers, Sota SF2, Turtles Classics......Legends is just falling behind. I don't know that I want to sell EVERYTHING but I just don't have the interest I once did. How does one fix this? I think missing the Xforce set really struck a nerve.

  2. IDK about 5 waves but let's see...


    2. Mockingbird

    3. Classic Hawkeye....same as the original TB version but a Hasbro design....Cap/US Agent base would work.

    4. Spiderman - no bells and whistles, just straight up, plain ol red/blue Spidey w/ loads of articulation and no gimmicks


    5. Red Skull - I prefer the green jumpsuit but any rendition is fine

    6. X-23

    7. All star figure is a HYDRA agent, similar to the one that came in the 3 pack for MU. No BAF piece, 2 per case


    variants: Dark Hawkeye & X Force X 23

    running change - Warbird for Mockingbird (I'm not a fan of the TB version)

    BAF - Hercules


    wave 2:

    1. Secret Avengers Beast

    2. Mr. Sinister (original look)

    3. Cyclops (Jim Lee, 90s style. I have an amazing custom but this guy is long overdue)

    4. Professor X

    5. Wolverine - ummm...whatever they want. We'll say a re-release of the Red Hulk series w/ modified shoulder pads and a better paint job

    6. Sebastian Shaw

    7. All star figure is a HELLFIRE CLUB AGENT. again, 2 per case


    variant - Wolverine w/ BONE claws (same outfit, subtle change, maybe even have him unmasked?)

    running change would be titled simply "then & now" and would feature a 90s Beast & Modern Mr. Sinister


    BAF is tricky. 3 characters come w/ pieces to build....Prof X HOVER CHAIR. One other w/ Cerebro headpiece, two others w/ a computer or screen type thing



    wave 3.

    1. Mr. Fantastic - "classic"

    2. Sue Storm - "classic." For God's sake can we get a GOOD CLASSIC SUE STORM!?!??

    3. Flash Thompson Venom

    4. CLASSIC Captain America. Take the Bucky Mold, paint that mofo up to look like he should!

    5. Baron Zemo II - long long long overdue and would be worth the wait

    6. modern Cable - hell, take the MU and upsize it. It's perfect

    7. All star figure is a SHIELD AGENT. 2 per case (see where I'm going w/ these???)


    running change figures: - Mr. Fantastic, Future Foundation. more of a running change than a variant, want the ratio even

    Sue Storm - Future Foundation. again...see Mr. Fantastic

    Bishop - running change to Cable. Marvel's Time Traveling Soldiers


    variant. dum dum dummmmm - Sue Storm. clear, color plastic like phasing Vision

    BAF - THING....hear me out....Zemo, Cap & Venom come w/ right & left arms and one of them gets the head. Classic sue comes with torso/blue crotch piece, Mr. Fantastic comes w/ a blue leg and cable comes w/ a blue leg. THEN....the running changes....FF/invisible sue comes w/ torso/white crotch piece, Mr. Fantastic comes w/ a white leg & bishop w/ the other white leg. I've just given you a complete classic Fantastic Four AND Future Foundation. Send money to my Paypal. I'm a marketing genius.


    and on that note, i'm done. I left Iron Patriot out because I HAVE to believe he'll be in the upcoming Iron Man legends line.


  3. assuming we get 7 figures (Iron Monger is HUGE) I gotta have some updates to older Toy Biz figures. That said:

    1. 1st Appearance Iron Man - just like the 3 3/4 version but scaled up. Silver/gold variants

    2. Modular Armor - Face Off is good but it's just so damn sloppy on the paint. Make this one a bit bigger. Removable faceplate is optional. War Machine variant


    3. Tony Stark in a new SUIT. Gives up a new body to work w/ while giving us an official suited up Tony.

    4. Iron Patriot - because I don't see us getting him anywhere else. One that comes WITH a Norman Osborne head would be choice


    5. War Machine - update to the "classic" look that was given to us by Toy Biz. Just update it, give it a full Rhoadey extra head. = $$


    6. Mandarin - it can be the TB version re-done or it can be like the 3 3/4 figure was. I don't care. All i know is we need a GOOD version in Legends scale


    7. Bleeding Edge armor. Saves us a spot in Legends and is really the only armor we don't have that is of any importance


    BAF - obviously that insane, sick Iron Monger.


    Every single one of you would buy these. hahaa

  4. new figs at the bottom are clearly Red She hulk, Sentry, Protector, modern Iron Fist & classic Archangel. Not a clue why that Fantomex is down there with them. possibly a place holder for someone else? Either way, that's one sick effing wave. Can't see variants out of Sentry. Iron Fist would obviously be a green variant. Archangel could be b/w XForce (instead of the sdcc black/silver), Protector could be his green/white look w/ no mask, She Hulk.....hmmmm maybe a green variant or a running change w/ Titania? (sp?)

  5. in all fairness, 3 sets can be justified depending on how you display. two major xforce squads are Wolverine, Warpath, x-23, Archangel & Wolfsbane (granted we don't have her). so that is one look. the other, obviously is Wolverine, Fantomex, Deadpool, Archangel & Psylocke. that's two sets there and the 3rd is if you are a MOC collector as well or customizer.....

  6. Look at this seller: http://shop.ebay.com/god_pepsi/m.html?_trk...sop=1&_sc=1


    He's got a ton of new stuff and rare stuff for very reasonable prices. Has 100% feedback, only problem is its from Canada so i don't know how that will work with the strike.



    wow those prices are insane. Something seems fishy though. He's 100% yes, but ALL OF IT is as a buyer, he has no feedback as a seller. I'm very, very tempted to get some Sentinels though. I just don't want to chance it.

  7. Scored a pretty sweet deal while on vacation this week. Found a nice comic shop in Corpus Christi (texas) that had a TON of awesomely priced Legends and Legends related figures. Guy was even willing to negotiate on our final deal. Anyway, scored Mysterio & Beetle for $15 each (he originally had beetle at $23 but accepted $15) and the highlight was easily the variant Storm which he had for $25. So, that said, grabbed these 3 but crazy as it is, dude had THREE FFC Namor figs for just $15 each. I already have one but I know that figure usually fetches decent money. Left em there though. Would've been much more excited for 3 Hydra soldiers. Ah well...




  8. to be fair though, the TWO shockers we have are good enough IMO. Yeah arm movement is limited but the sculpt is spot on. Give me somebody new before going back to him. Furthermore, I think to get the BEST out of Marvel Legends, they should give us Legends quality baddies/supporting characters in the Iron Man Legends/Spiderman Classics line while running side by side w/ the actual Marvel Legends. Use the old Toy Biz formula, 1-2 Spidey villains per wave, bam. Everyone is happy.

  9. one of the best examples of a standar Marvel Legends figure has to be the SHIELD Agent/Dum Dum/FO Punisher. Perfect in every way, proportionate and just excellent size. I can do without finger joints personally and as long as the hands aren't in a goofy pose, extra hands aren't a must. Extra heads are nice I guess but I'm just more concerned w/ scale & a GOOD-GREAT paint job. Double knees/elbows should be a no brainer though.

  10. not only that, it's called Marvel LEGENDS. Not many Toy Biz figures were of up to date costumes because they were going with ICONIC costumes worn by the characters. While I've got no problems at all w/ stuff like Bleeding Edge, Commander Rogers, etc....I'd also still like to see alot of classic characters/costumes that have yet to see production before we get a slew of Dark Reign/Heroic Age/Fear Itself stuff.
