  1. It's a weird one, this. After missing out on Retro carded Rogue (average ebay price to UK buyers: £60 + £12 - £20 import charge, so, that's about $125 for a figure I already own, on a dumber card and with a slightly tweaked head & hand sculpt....totally worth it 😂) I now pre-order ALL Marvel Legends: good, bad or indifferent. Obsidian Surfer was one I couldn't care less about. I've got the first one (from the SE Exclusive F4 singles) and it's a nice figure, with a bunch of stuff, but it's one I also don't care about at all. I think a redo of Silver Savage would have made me more exci
  2. General point: has there even been a teaser trailer for Shang-Chi or the Eternals movies? I can't have missed both. I think Hasbro should seriously reign in details of (and pictures, even more) any waves based on forthcoming movies likely to be delayed, because we're judging these waves in a vacuum. Think about the Black Widow movie & wave. Figures have been out over a year, movie pending. Despite my huge initial reservations, it's a GOOD line, with a nice MCU/Comic split. The MCU figures are excellent (except Red Guardian) and the comic figures even better. But looking at the re
  3. I may be wrong, watanabefan, and if I am, I apologise in advance, but: (1). Is this Rektangular bashing/correcting really necessary? He's been doing this forever, he's more right than he is wrong, and he has no sponsorship or platform to 'guide' his content. If he's made a howling mistake, why don't you just politely message him on the clip/content you know is wrong? (2). As with the Eternals wave, I'm thinking the only two people in the world excited about this wave are in this forum. The last MCU Mandarin was...what it was, and this is going to be A. N. Other variation on same. If
  4. Well, this is....underwhelming. I don't know if Disney/Hasbro were deliberately aiming for a Game of Thrones meets Lost in Space or Star Trek lite vibe, but if they were, goal achieved. I have a natural comic bias, and I don't want to deflate the enthusiasm of those that like this, but gotta say: this is risky. This is an entire wave based on a completely untested corner of the Marvel Universe and the MCU. These are tough times for toys and tough times for films, and in the past, waves of Legends based on underperforming Marvel films (Spider-Man Far From Home, Captain Marvel & Dr Str
  5. That's some fine hair work, there. They've made the effort again here, and this is a damn good figure: nothing but good things to say about it and hope my Pre-order hits soon. But did I miss a Ms Lion with an ML MJ figure? Far as I knew, that was an old Marvel Universe deal only. Legends MJ just got a bag accessory and/or was a swap head for Gwen Stacey on the retro cards.
  6. I don't know, @tarot old chap. I'm working on the basis that even a six figure wave can become seven or eight (or 50) really quickly (Variant Storm, Black Cat, Gambit, Rogue etc.) There's no wave 2 X-Men or Spider-Man retro, but there's been countless singles. And all those Iron Man suits in a non-movie wave? That's pushing it!!
  7. Darkstar! Squeeeeal! Rumour or not, the possibility of Darkstar is enough to get a huuuuge pop from me (yeah, Vanguard & Ursa are needed to, but just to be able to tick this one off my 'They'll never make 'em' list of Legends, will be so sweet & historic, I'd feel anything more is pushing my luck). But this isn't a retro wave? The esoteric characters and Iron Man suit variations literally screams retro. They surely wouldn't do the always pointless stealth armour and Iron Heart in a regular wave, would they? Ah, screw it. As long as there is Darkstar and none of these guys suf
  8. Kilts & Islamic garments are very, very different things. Scottish people wear kilts (a). Because they have to in a ceremonial or military context or (b). Because they want to celebrate their 'glorious' history of clan affiliation (some people in Scotland believe that they are honouring their ancient ancestral 'clan' by wearing a specific pattern of tartan on their kilts & etc. Sadly, historical research has shown that the idea of clans dates back to the late Victoria era, and the resurgence in historical nationalism & romanticism in the literature of the time). So, it's not real
  9. Well...um....a mixture. Thanos - cool. Glad they've got around to supersizing the old 3.75" Marvel Universe version. Like the alt head, but is this like an 'Old Man Thanos' kinda deal? (Not complaining: I always like alt heads). Stiltman wave - loved 'Into the Spiderverse', but none of these animation based figures are for me. I know they'll be loved by many, and they are good figures. Stiltman is a wonderful BAF; I'm fine with the generic ninja & Frog-man (this makes me smile. Who'dathought it? This guy? Love it). HoX/Dox/PoX wave - okay, that Cyclops is nice. I can dig it. But
  10. Benn - I may disagree with you on some design/aesthetic choices and a tiny bit on the speed of the design & manufacturing process (which has seriously accelerated) but what I want to say most of all is that I absolutely loved reading this. All of it. You know (much) more about the current x-books than I do (and any situation where one assimilates new information is good), and the bullet list alone was great as food for thought (an M or a Tempus figure? Oh, my! Yes, please!!! Just to pose Eva between white Magneto and MN! Cyclops & Emma Frost (black togs/Walgreens) would make me v
  11. I don't get this complaint. This isn't a run-of-the-mill can-add-any-character-from-any-era wave. Maybe if they pulled this kind of character selection in a nondescript wave I could understand. But this wave is specifically based on Dawn of X, and you're indignant at the character selection consisting of this status quo's main player? No, Mr or Mrs ADour, that is NOT my complaint. I take it that you've seen the completed figures boxed, and that these all have 'Marvel Legends X-Men : Dawn of X' emblazoned upon them - as the Age of Apocalypse wave & Apocalypse deluxe did upon their resp
  12. Y'know, I still haven't got around to reading HoX or PoX. Honestly though, if the stories are as 'inspired' as this wave is, I'm not going near it. I can forgive and excuse pretty much anything X-related in Legends but this? Holy crap, if this is even 55% correct.... appalling. The most uninspired and by-the-numbers x-wave ever. The design process? "Hey, guys! Gimme the names of five X-Men characters even non-dorks know, and that collectors will already own at least 5 times?" Heads scratched for two seconds, "Um, Wolverine? Cyclops? Jean Grey? Professor X? Magneto?" "Nailed it! And we'll
  13. Definite & easy pass - and not sure if the usual justification(s) for these double-dip, slight-tweak-on-different-card figures - that they are "Great for people who couldn't get them first time round, " and/or that they are too expensive on the secondary market - works here as it does with the 'new' retro Rogue. It's a good figure, but I want to buy new figure because I don't already own them (or a 98% similar version). And, of course, there's at least 10 easy (& cheaper) X-based repaints that could have gone on the retro card (an X-Factor Jean Grey / UXM #200 Magneto / X-Force Ni
  14. Literally two figures and a novelty BAF stop this from being the most underwhelming reveal ever: Jocasta and Firestar. And looking at 'retro' Rogue's face, I'm seriously beginning to agree with proponents of the 'Hasbro has issues with female body sculpts' argument.
