  1. It's just not an exciting figure. Sorry to burst people's bubble. We keep screaming for X-mansion, Danger room, Quinjet, Blackbird etc, we keep getting stuff a lot of folks don't care about. GI Joe are crushing it with their vehicles so Marvel's branch has no excuse. Hell, even Super 7 are getting their Thundercats stuff funded with no major issues. Personally I don't care if we don't get another Haslab. Marvel legends brand is just dull compared to its competition now. So many pointless characters and it's doubly frustrating when they've barely scratched the Mutant roster

    I can’t speak for anyone else, but Marvel Legends as a line hasn’t captured my interest lately.

    Don’t get me wrong, the figures look probably the best they ever have.

    For me, several factors play into this:

    - The price increases. I just do not feel that most basic figures with basic or no accessories is worth what is being charged.

    - Weird pricing. Some things are high and some are super high. I can’t figure out the logic in some of their figure pricing.

    - Unwilling to complete teams.  I’ve collected since the first wave of the Toy Biz days. There are still massive holes in my teams. Nuff said.

    - Overstock.  Go to an Ollie’s and see all of the Marvel Legends just hanging on the pegs. My local Walmart hasnt been able to move any Marvel Legends all summer. That doesn’t make me feel great as a collector if I see “my line” not moving at retail or clearance.

    - Weird Decisions. I don’t understand why army builder packs were limited and rarely restocked on Hasbro Pulse. Engine of Vengeance was overpriced in my opinion and poorly handled. Spider-Man Far from Home figures still aren’t in stores (I’m sure it’s a Disney thing).

    I guess I’m just thinking that lack of support for Giantman may not be because people don’t like the figure, it may be because of overall disinterest or frustration in the Marvel Legends line.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m buying the stuff I like and think is worth it.  Unfortunately, I haven’t picked up or preordered a Marvel Legends in many months.

    I'm right there with you mate. These figures don't excite me anymore. We pay more for less and their pricing is literally made up on the spot or too overpriced for deluxe/big figs. I mean £55 for blob?! Ridiculous. When I look at GI Joe, Power Rangers and WWE I get excited. I see ML's I just see bland overpriced figures.

    It's so frustrating... if this wasn't translucent, it would be a nice figure. 

    For the 27th. time : Iceman is not a translucent person- he is a man, coated in ice! The Human Torch is not a clear person- he is a man (or android) covered in fire! A translucent figure only works if you then coat it with an opaque paint that covers almost all of it. 


    As for the figure? The articulation is a crime against nature. We never let Hasbro get away with and neither should DS. Hard Pass

  4. Perlmutter and Arad, both responsible for bringing us amazing things (Toybiz, saving Marvel comics, kick starting the MCU)  and so many awful things and bad decisions. Both such despicable characters that by the end nobody wanted to deal with them but couldn't get rid of them. Perlmutter won't be missed and will go down in infamy for his notorious penny pinching. Hopefully morale and better talent will return to Marvel comics now he's gone.
