  1. So has anyone said they will be picking these up for members?
  2. A website called robotkingdom has the new Iron Man Titanium Man and the other 3 in stock already! Go order NOW! They look really sweet!
  3. Just copy each lineup they have done for Marvel Universe so far and I think most people would be happy. If they wanted to relaunch most figures, those secret wars 2 packs could be a great way to do it! If they did copy MU selection do you realize in a short period of time we would get: Jean Grey (Jim Lee) Gladiator Sunfire Thanos Xforce versions of Wolvie & Archangel throw in a Deadpool repaint Dark Avengers Wolverine, Iron Patriot, Ms. Marvel, & Hawkeye Wrecking Crew Ultron (Perez Style) Klaw Enchantress Modern Iron Fist, Thor, Luke Cage, & Havok AIM Soldier Multiple Man Constrictor Firestar That seems like a damn nice line up of new Legends figures to me!
  4. Something else I noticed no one has mentioned you is Doll House products. Check this stuff out to see how you might incorporate it into your diorama: http://www.thelittledollhousecompany.com/d...Path=13_176_181 http://www.dollhousecollectables.com/ http://www.dollhousecity.com/ http://www.dollhouseheaven.com/ and model train stuff: http://www.modeltrainsoftware.com/brickyard.html This site is really cool also to get those "extras" needed in any city/house and it's free! All you need is a printer: http://www.printmini.com/printables/ Hope you find some fun uses for this stuff!
  5. Gladiator Polaris Sunfire AIM Soldier Constrictor Jean Grey Basically anyone they have released in that midget line, MU.
  6. What basis are you saying this for? I was at a local Southern California Toy s rus this morning and all they had were the last batch of 2 packs on clearance for $13 bucks.
  7. I predict that if we don't get confirmed figures for any of the HUGE Marvel movies coming up, Captain America, Thor, Spider man, Wolverine, Avengers then you can kiss 6" Marvel Legends good bye and count it among the dead at that point.
  8. The skrull is a great figure. However it was not done by Hasbro it was done by the original Toybiz. Hasbro reproduced it for the 2 pack and just painted it differently. He was originally made back in 2006 in the Fantastic Four Classics line. You can see him here: http://marvelousnews.com/database/index.php?itemid=891
  9. Wow come on who let the iron commie out? come on man if you owned hasbro you would want to make as much money as possible also, and as far as basshing one party you must have a lot to learn about our country. First off all elits are out for themselves. and if you didnt know 5% of are country is in the elit catagory. which leaves the rest of us, and the bank owners run the country the president is their puppet regardless what party he is. Partys are a show for the people, people like you. Maybe you should read my post again. It was meant to be facetious. Bank owners running the country? That is a new one to me. Let me guess you subscribe to the belief we should punish those guys for getting bonuses they worked for regardless of bail outs? Do you feel in your current job that any compensation you were to receive should be taken away from you just because the government saved your company from bankruptcy? Now who would be calling who an iron commie at that point? Parties are NOT a show for the people. Obviously you need to be educated on how the party system works because you don't have a clue about it or what they stand for. You sound like a student and a possible Socialist. You sound like you believe in the re-distribution of our wealth so we don't have a top 5% but rather have EVERYONE working side by side in the rice fields. Well that belief totally sucks and it isn't my AMERICA. Socialism is NOT not what this country was founded on. Do you REALLY want to have this discussion because I can go on for days about it. Feel free to message me and discuss it so we don't bog down this board with this tangent. I have to agree somewhat with Thedevilsdue. Hasbro is slowing screwing people and most of the people act like Hasbro is doing them a favor with these re-dos. My point of posting in this topic was to point out that if we as a community are only going to receive 6 Marvel Legends for a year, then why the hell are we wasting them on re-dos? That means only 3 truly new figures. It has nothing to do if the re-dos look better or if the old toy is deserving of a re-do. By pointing out alternatives like customizing yourself or hiring someone it gives us ALL a better chance of getting new figures for our collections instead of just replacing old figures with newer versions. Apparently some people on this board think that is a terrible idea and that we should vote for re-dos. I get blasted for suggesting it like I am some pariah. Not my fault if people can't grasp the understanding behind it. If you, as a community think we should get re-dos, then why stop at only 3, just let Hasbro re-do everything that Toybiz made. Obviously the lemmings will buy it all thinking or hoping it will be better. But we all know that Hasbro has a history of screwing up just about everything they put out for ML. Watch Deadpool will NOT be better then the Toybiz one but it will placate people with no money, lazy, to cheap, or whatever to buy the Toybiz one. SO yeah, I gotta agree with Thedevilsdue and this line just needs to somewhat go away or just become ALL re-dos so those of us who do look forward to NEW figures won't have to pay attention. In the meantime, however I will support this line with ANY & ALL new figures they put out in hopes that it will once again blossom into a thing of beauty. Maybe you should think about what this was country was founded on. Freedom of speech and freedom of CHOICE. Not to be persecuted for it. The people spoke in their voting and got their choices whether you agree with them or not. Just because they didn't vote for what you wanted doesn't mean they're lower than you or can't comprehend on such a high level as you. Like you just said if we all voted the same way and did the same in this country wouldn't that be kinda like socialism. There would be no need for two parties let alone an INDEPENDENT one would there? We the people are truly sorry if we misunderstood the voting process and have offended thee o'mighty one. I see so now I am the mighty one? Why, because I excersized my RIGHT of free speech to disagree with YOUR opinion and choice of a product? Because I voted differently and choose to express my belief as to why I feel we as a collector community are getting the shaft over these votes that makes me some big shot over you? Please point out anywhere, and be specific, where I say that I am better than you. You can't. Let's make it easy; Do you believe that if you were only going to get 6 Marvel Legends for one year, that getting 3 of them as re-dos is healthy for a successful Marvel Legends to continue? If the people choose to have all re-dos or 3 of 6 re-dos then so be it, that is what they choose. Doesn't mean I think it is a good choice to SAVE this wonderful toy line that I adore for many years. We are both fans of this line, I want to see more new product, you are happy with them doing re-dos AS LONG AS it is characters you voted for. Follow it up with this: What message does it say to Hasbro when "the people" vote for the top 3 of almost 20 toys, to be figures to be redone? How long before Hasbro thinks it will be ok to just make re-dos, as long as YOU VOTE FOR them of course. Hasbro can let you vote for 3 re-dos and then give you the 3 they want to give you. Sound wonderful doesn't it? Are you prepared to just keep buying the same figures over and over again, so long as you get to vote for their re-do? And you think that is good for the line? Vote for a new Scarlet Witch, a new X-23, a new Spiderwoman, instead of receiving Polaris, Enchantress, or a Jean Grey? You would rather be able to vote for re-dos instead of getting new product? Please help me to understand because I don't see that as a good plan for anyone REGARDLESS if you think I am some "mighty one" just because you don't like the fact that my opinion is different than yours. Whether you like it or not, I can express my opinion due to all those same reasons you already stated. Obviously you feel it is ok to persecute me with monikers like "might one" because my belief is different and I like you, have passion for this line and only want to see it be successful again. Please bring all the hate, name calling , what ever you can to keep this topic alive. One way or another, someone from Hasbro will read this and either have a big smile over this re-do topic or a good laugh at our expense.
  10. Yea as if Hasbro will make these in as big a quantity as the current army builder lines. These are gonna be difficult to find and made in a lot smaller numbers due to the fact most people won't be buying doubles of them. I will be pleasantly surprised if these will be an easy scoop up at the local Toysrus. Good luck with your hunt!
  11. Hell yea, I would be down for all/any of those characters. I appreciate all the remakes that Hasbro has done. Most of them have been better then the originals we saw from early Toybiz. With the product being produced for Marvel Legends at this time, remakes take up valuable spots for newer characters for us to get before Hasbro actually calls it quits on this line. While a few characters need remakes, it saddens me that the only new legends products we will receive this year will be 6 figures, 3 of which have already been made in one form or another instead of 6 all new characters to add to our collections. That is what people need to consider before the next time they cast a vote for a character to be remade.
  12. Cool! Love the concept Iron man adds more flavor to a growing Armory.
  13. I would be inclined to believe it was actually the Exiles version. At the time it came out, Exiles was fast becoming very popular. The roster at the time was: Blink White Sasquatch (Heather Hudson replaced Tbird after the losing fight with Galactus) issue #10 Nocturne (daughter of Nightcrawler & Scarlet Witch) Morph Thunder Bird (Put in a coma fighting Galactus) Sunfire (female) Mimic Spiderman 2099 soon after Sabretooth AOA version So when ML released AOA Sabretooth, then the White Sasquatch followed by 2099 Spiderman, I think they were in the process of duplicating some or eventually all of the initial Exiles team. Just my opinion though.
  14. Becareful with this guy, I had a deal ready to go with him and my wife delayed sending him our agreed upon item exchange while I was working in Philly. He then notified me, while the product was "suppossed" to be on arrival to him that he was changing the deal BEFORE it got to him. I was lucky my wife actually screwed up or I would have lost a very expensive MOC figure to his shenanigans. Buyer beware!
  15. 2 stories that I know of: 1) Sasquatch was found out to be some kind of demigod, Snowbird transformed into the White version and killed him. Alpha Flight then decided they wanted to save Walters soul (Sasquatch) so they placed him the character known as Box for awhile, then in the White snowbird body unitl he was reunited into his old body. 2) it was the version seen in the eXiles comic books, which was not Walter Langkowski, but rasther Heather Hudson.
  16. Jay doen't like links to other sites. So please PM me and I will let you know where to go to get this taken care of for you.
  17. Hellfire Club Goon/AIM Soldier Shiar Soldier/Badoon Soldier Gladiator/Vulcan Nighthawk/Hellcat Drax/Moondragon (w/classic variants of both) Terrax/Nova Frankie Raye Shaman/Snowbird Firelord/Air Walker Puck/Marrina Baron mordo/Dormamu Attuma/Namorita Hyperion/Blink Sunfire/Polaris Cloak/Dagger
  18. well, when MS started, ML was still going....so im pretty sure that people cherry picked through the selection. but if there was no ML, would MS be so "irrelevent"? and a correct statement would be..."lets be honest here, MS figs just rotts away on pegs in YOUR area. ofcourse MS is dragging because of ML.(no brainer) but MS is its own line. no different than any other. but its crazy to say that MS cant have a shot at producing a character just because "legends" has one. i keep telling everyone that this is one of the ONLY group of collectors(marvel) that has trouble accepting multiple companies making multiple products for fig lines. if DCUC line dies, DC collectors arent going to say "DC direct should only make figs that mattel hasnt done. indie comic collectors dont do it either...just mavel. the bad: hasbro is not going to give you what you want....sorry. the good: we have a chance at another marvel line that might go all the way.(like mattel's doing with DC) it seems as if MS is working on their articulation, so i dont see a problem besides a few collectors that dont want to trade up....nothing lasts forever. Totally agree with your statement Pooda. Thus you must understand the frustration of having such a great company making marvel toys, yet going the route of it's money hungry step brother, Hasblow. The potentia is greater with what MS can do for the collector fan base. I don't think their support for the majority of other more main stream characters is really there. I give them props for trying some thing new, but it seems like they could effectively stagger in some of the bigger more desireable characters and still work in some more profitable targetted ones as well. Would it be so terrible for them to cater to a few of the bigger selections say every 3rd month they were to put out a product? Could they do more mainstream big characters as well? MS Hulk. Red Hulk sold well, Thor, Thing will, Abomination will be a best seller for sure, don't you think a Gladiator or Odin would do just as well?
  19. Let's be honest here. Most of the Marvel Select stuff just rots away on pegs. I can walk into my local comic store and find every single one on the shelf,hell I can walk in and take a picture and load it up for proof even. I could also walk into a local place, called Suncoast Video (now FYE) and find them peg warming there until they decided to clearance them for half off. I find it hard to believe that many of you TOTALLY support MS in all of the toys that they do. My guess is that most of you bought the Thanos, Watcher, Cloak & Dagger, Brood/Skrull. Red Hulk, Thor, all the ones needed to fill in your ML scale figures. Few of you may have bought the Thor product &/or the Ironman product, but as a whole buying MS is probably a lot more selective to purchase since we all that ALL of us usually take the scale into account when purchasing. I would wager that none of you buy everything that MS releases the way MOST of us do for ML products.
  20. You don't find these at normal mass market retailers for toys. Not at Target, Walmart, and rarely at Toysrus. You find these at places like Suncoast, or other smaller places, order direct from Diamond, or even your local comic shop, which also accounts for their higher pricing. Thus that makes these more of a specialty item and you don't have this product in front of the MAJORITY of children who may influence their parents to buy a big name product like Wolverine, Ironman, or Spiderman. If you connect those dots logically then that would make you realize that they need COLLECTORS to buy this product since it is getting in front of the places we go to buy them, not the kiddies. If they are going to cater to us collectors then and not mass market, then they should make the products WE want and not those products they feel are just gonna be bIG sellers based on the Hasbro ML selling model. They don't have the type of facings or advertising that Hasbro gets with their products. Smaller market means more specialty shops and customers. US the buyer control the MS brand EVEN more so then what would come out in a ML line since kids get in front of those at big retailers. So if they want to make money, be successful, and continue the MS brand, they should offer figures that we will support. It really has nothing to do with their obligation to "fill" our line ups with missing bigger figures, it is just they need us more then we need their products. We are asking to give our money away to them, yet they don't seem to truly want it.
  21. I also agree. MS making avergae sized characters is just a waste of time for me. I don't care who the sculpt is, I will just pass it by. Nothing wrong with them trying to cash in on the popularity of a character like Wolverine or Deadpool but please show some balance. Give us Terrax one month, Odin the next, then a Deadpool, followed by Gladiator, Blastaar, then a Wolverine, Armadillo, Warstar, Spiderman, Orka, Juggernaut, Daredevil, check it out, I just planned what last year should have been like for them. Give us some money maker every other month or so and stuff we wanna buy to fill in our collections. This product usually doesn't sell at mass market retailers so they need our buying power even more then normal ML do. Make what we want and we can support your company.
  22. Chalk this one up as worthless to me. I agree with Solid, make bigger scaled toys like Terrax, Orka, Armadillo, Rhino, Bi-Beast, etc to fit with current ML's and you have a winner. Why don't people just man up and buy ML Series 6 Deadpool anyways? If you say it is too expensive, then you obviously don't use ebay very well. I have bought 2 for my little bro's, in perfect shape for under $25 each in the last year alone. The new Hasbro one will be craptacular anyways, why think it is going to be some awesome thing to look forward to? Are you guys really that excited over this one and the hasbro one? NONE will be better then the ML6 one. We already know that these 7" scale of normal sized figures (Spiderman, Daredevil, Wolverine) are never done well either. Why waste our time over them?
  23. ML3 Thor. While the WM one looks great for sculpt/articulation, when he placed next to Ares & Hercules, the ML 3 version looks so much better. The 2 from MS can kiss my behind. Ultimate is just lame and the new version, meh, give me classic any day.
