Best Marvel Legends, Male: King Hulk
Not that I needed another Hulk but this was pretty much a perfect representation
Best Marvel Legends, Female: Spiral
Lack of swords/acc's is my only complaint here
Best Marvel Legends, Villain: Crossbones
Long overdue and great retool of Hulkling
Hardest ML to Find: Ares series
found the cardboard display once, managed to snag the series, only ever saw a couple Ben Reilly's after that
Easiest ML to find: maybe Red Hulk Black Spidey
none are really easy to find anymore
Best 2-Pack: Ronin + Elektra
great acc's. Alternate heads and weapons. Great sculpts.
Best BAF: Fin Fang Foom
Long wanted BAF. Some missing articulation keeps it from being ....Best Ever.... but one of my favorite things from last year for sure.
All Around Favorites of the Year: King Hulk, Red Hulk, Wendigo, Ronin, Spiral, Crossbones, Ares
Best Non-Legends Figure: Marvel Unleashed Iron Man
I am a sucker for Iron Man armors and while it may be big it works for a Hulk buster armor since this was the only time it was seen.
Best Iron-Man Movie Figure: Silver Centurion (target exclusive)
just a repaint like so many others, but I have always liked this look and with that armor it looks like a great modernization
Best Marvel film of 2008: Hulk
Iron Man was great too. I like the Hulk action scenes more, being most of Iron Man action scenes were just him messing around with his armor. Iron Man 2 should be insane
Best ML Online exclsuive: Savage Land, not sure if that counts since it was a SDCC exculsive, really the only ML online exclusive was Sunfire. Savage Land wins though for no other reason that it is a box set of C listers
Worst ML of 2008: 2 Pack Wolverine or Rulk Wave Wolverine
2 pack Wolvie will be OK if we get other X-men in that costume, specifically Gambit
Rulk Wolvie is a repaint of ML6 Brown Wolvie which is one of my favorites. Something about the positioning of his shoulder pads just drives me nuts though
Best Competition to ML: DCU
I am not a DC fan....I have been pondering drinking the DCU kool-aid for a while though....
