Discuss ML figures here.

I'm having a friend get me Toxin, it should be here by tomorrow.

Has anyone had any luck finding Carnage?

I was lucky finding black Cat in my local Toy's Us, first time I've ever seen they carry Marvel Legends since the X-Men Last Stand ML Figures and the last Icons line.

man, I wished I bought those Marvel Lenegds Icons when they where there, but nooo. I didn't have anything else in that scale so I dropped them.

I'm not usually a Marvel Legends collector but I've really been a fan of what Hasbro has been doing lately.

I've found a couple of Carnage figures, 1 Black Cat, Countless figures of the rest. Once I finished the Green Goblin BAF, I pretty much stopped looking. Haven't seen a Toxin figure but I really haven't been looking. Did see a Spider-Girl the other day. Left that one on the peg too.

Hey snake, good idea for a thread because I'm huge into Marvel Legends these days

I have all of the 2014 Spidey and Captain America Legends. So yes, I have Toxin and Carnage :) They weren't that easy to track down since I will only pay retail prices. Took a lot of searching. So congrats on getting Toxin, he's not easy to find.

As for older figures, I have all of the Puck series except Emma (Wolverine, Sabretooth, Cyclops) and all of the Rocket Racoon series except for Scarlet Spidey, which I didn't care for and you don't need him for the BAF (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-87a0vrCP-NE/UhwmfJABe7I/AAAAAAAAMEU/Gapmtxz0pcs/s1600/Hasbro+Marvel+Legends+BAF+Build+a+Figure+Rocket+Ra ccoon+Guardians+of+the+Galaxy+Action+Figure+One+Pe r+Case+2013+Wave+2+(2).JPG) anyway (Wrecker, Jean Grey, Black Panther, Modern Hawkeye), both Iron Monger series (Classic IM, Comic Iron Patriot, Heroic Age, mark 42, Ultron and IM3 Iron Patriot)... outside of these, I have a spotty selection of older stuff including Terrax series Thor (he's awesome!!). Another one of my favorites, which I've mentioned before in a different thread, is Astonishing Wolverine from the Apocalypse series

http://thefwoosh.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Marvel-Legends-Astonishing-X-Men-Wolverine-fastball-special.jpg

I also ordered all 6 of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy figures. Here are the amazon links if anyone is interested:

Rocket (http://amzn.com/B00IJZPZLC)
Nova (http://amzn.com/B00IJZPZM6)
Gamora (http://amzn.com/B00IJZPZLW)
Star-Lord (http://amzn.com/B00IJZPZKS)
Galaxy Iron Man (http://amzn.com/B00IJZPZSU)
Drax (http://amzn.com/B00IJZPZMG)


If you get them all you'll have all the build-a-figure parts and can build the 7th figure, Groot (see spoiler tag):

http://i0.wp.com/thefwoosh.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/GOTG-LEGENDS-GROOT-BAF.jpg

You can also get all 6 figures at BBTS, the price is a little less than amazon, but you have to pay shipping there so the final price is probably higher by $10 or more.

No idea if there will be supply issues with the GotG figures like there has been with Spidey/Cap... but I'd rather be safe than sorry. Better to pre-order when possible!

So yeah, it's a great time to be into Marvel Legends, the only downside is prices have gone up A LOT and it takes more work to find good deals. Starting to become challenging to find new figures for under $20 -- though it's still possible in some cases.

Lastly, check out http://marvellegends.net/ which is a great site if you want to see pics/info for upcoming as well as past Marvel Legends waves (there's A LOT of them dating back to the Toy Biz period)

It's a poor set for the price.

But with the 20% TRU coupon right now... i guess it's not that terrible.

Candy Kappa

yeah.. And I bet that price ain't getting better on the 2nd hand market, bit of a shame, I love the original X-Men team and the black/blue and yellow costume, and the All-New X-Men comic series is pretty good.

I don't think it's a "poor" set really. As good as the infinite series stuff we've been getting? Nope. But if your Toys R Us has a few to pick from, just take your time and look for some good ones. There are common problems in all the ones I've looked at like missing paint on the Cyclops and Angel figures at the rib cage area and some of the eyes look a little derpy on some but I managed to find a pretty good set. But again, I don't plan on opening them either. I think they look great sitting right in that box and that's where I'm gonna leave them. And if you can get $20 off, go for it.

Been collecting these since literally the first day they were released (and Spidey Classics, before that). Probably have 98% of all released figures, but I'm on the verge of quitting since it's so goddamned hard to find these things over here. We've had the Spidey Infinite series, but Hasbro UK seems to think Captain America won't sell over here, so we're up sh*t creek with that wave...

Had no problems with the first wave of Spidey - got my Cat & Carnage no problem, and I still have a spare Cat MOC. Getting regular restocks too, although it's unlikely we'll be getting the swaps any time soon.

Zulithe
04-03-2014, 02:18 PM
Heads up!

amazon is now showing Guardians of the Galaxy Nova as 'unavailable' meaning they may have sold out of their pre-order allotment for him.

Will the other figs soon be unavailable too?

Just a note... here is the GotG case breakdown:

Iron Man x2
Star Lord x2
Everything else x1

It doesn't shock me that Nova sold out first, afterall he is the "armybuilder" figure...

I need it mostly for the BAF part honestly, but she'd be nice to have as well.

I'd also love to get my hands on some of those WalMart exclusive Avengers ML from 2012 (http://marvellegends.net/Line/Movies/Avengers01.htm)... particularly Hulk, Loki, and Hawkeye

Apart from that... I'm pretty happy with what I have for the time being. I just hope they have a bunch more ML figures planned because it the recent Spidey, Cap and Guardians of the Galaxy waves have all been really GREAT, I want to see them build on this success and give us a ton more great stuff.

What? Looks like Rocket comes with an extra accessory not shown in previous photos! This is fantastic because he really needed something extra to make him feel worth buying since he's so small (not for me, but for the masses)

Zulithe
04-28-2014, 01:51 AM
I don't expect a $20-22 figure to be marked down under $14 before they even hit shelves

That really doesn't ever happen

I think some retailers are just getting tired of Hasbro's case assortments, they ALWAYS get stuck with a bunch of figures that won't sell in every wave, it's a big problem for some stores.

I think anyone who's walked into a Target and seen nothing but Greedo and Slave Leia on the shelf when they were hoping to find a Boba Fett can understand. Or, to cite a ML example: Nothing but Superior Spider-Man with maybe a couple ASM2 Spideys and Electros and nothing else.

This is part of the reason why we see such big price increases on hasbro figures the least few years. They have to mark them up because they know there's going to be some figures in the wave that they are forced to mark down in order to sell them.

So instead of making every figure say 17 or 19 dollars they mark them all up and wait to see which ones don't sell and mark those down.

Really sucks for collectors. You can try to anticipate which ones will get marked down and hold off on buying those while hope to get those cheaper I guess, that's about all you can do

Discogod
05-01-2014, 09:23 AM
For all those stressing about Widow, there's a revision case with 2x of her due in the summer - hopefully there'll be enough that the scalpers lose interest.

Still waiting for the Spidey swaps to hit the UK, doubt it'll happen. I managed to trade for Boomerang & Spider-Girl, but I need multiples of both for customizing (about a dozen, in Spider-Girl's case). All my local stores have Superior & Amazing Spidey pegwarming, with the odd Electro and Cat...

Zulithe
05-01-2014, 12:58 PM
Well I can only speak for me, but I'm not stressing on Widow. I already have her. But if I can grab a second one for trading I will.

Though when I bought mine they were 16.99 and now amazon wants 21.99 for them, argh. harder sell.

Widow has been going in and out of stock A LOT lately. While the time she goes in stock does vary it tends to be early in the morning (USA time), like 5 or 6am PST

actually as I write this she is in stock for pre-order for a mid-May shipping date. but that probably won't last long.

Marvel Legends X-Men Build-A-Figure Jubilee series will be a TRU exclusive.

Figs include:
- Stryfe (head and effects parts)
- Marvel Now Cyclops (right arm)
- Marvel Now Storm (torso/legs)
- Magneto (left arm)
- Unmasked Wolverine (only figure with NO build-a-fig parts, thankfully)

more: http://marvelousnews.com/index.php?catid=252&itemid=17526

I will *try* to get them all... hopefully since this is a TRU exclusive set that means they will get tons of them in stock. We'll see. I do not have a magneto so I really want that one, even though the head sculpt isn't as perfect as I'd prefer. Storm and Stryfe though... wow they both look GREAT.

Sadly this series doesn't include any alternate heads/heads like the Cap/Spidey/Guardians series did... which is disappointing. Imagine if Magneto came with two heads: one with helm, one without? Would be epic.

Shortest answer is they like to reuse bodies and parts to save money and Wolverine is a sure seller even if lots of people already have multiples of him.

But it's not all bad, because if you don't want Wolverine you simply have the option to skip him since he has no BAF piece. It would be worse if they included a BAF piece with him and lots were forced to buy him that didn't want to

Anyway, I'm interested in buying these but I'm not going to be hunting that hard... the BAF is good but not a must have.

a very nice amazon employee price matched my GotG figures down to 19.99 (from 21.99) with the exception of iron man which is now 18.99 on my order. really thankful to them.

Also did you guys know amazon can do 'personal followups'?
The employee will note your order and the item(s) and if the price changes they will alter the price for you, even if the item does not have a pre-order price guarantee (they will also refund the price difference within 7 days of the item shipping, if the price lowers)

so yeah if the price on Rocket or Nova lowers they will change it for me... pretty nice

June 1st is when mine ship from amazon. except that's a sunday so it won't ship till almost monday morning. i should have them by the 4th.

I have all 6 coming. Very excited! This is probably the FIRST ML wave where i literally wanted every single figure badly. It's a great wave.

i haven't seen any people able to get them early yet... but youtube reviews should start hitting very soon, maybe this weekend.

As i write this, amazon is sold out of all 6 figures. Hope you all pre-ordered

I'm not to worried about finding Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, or Iron Man, but it's always the ones I want the most that are hard to find. Hopefully I score a Nova or Rocket at retail.

Yup those two are definitely the 'chase' figs for this wave.

I also think Star Lord is going to sell really well. It's a really great looking figure with a very strong assortment of accessories and parts (two heads, yesss!) However since he is two per case supply will catch up with demand pretty fast, after the first couple shipments hit stores.

The other figures probably won't fly off shelves quite as fast... usually the female figures are hard to find, but I don't think Gamora will be quite as popular as Black Widow or Black Cat.

Good luck finding them... anyone looking for these at retail should probably start checking stores this Saturday... that's the day before June 1st and a day when a lot of stores get toy shipments.

I think you'll have better luck finding these.

Rocket and Nova will be the hardest to find, at least in the first several shipments to stores. doesn't mean you won't find them... you just need good timing.

sometimes you just get lucky. here is how I found black widow:

I called a store that takes me about 45 mins to reach... not very close at all. They told me they had 8 figures on the shelf. But the day before... they had none. So I knew there was a fair chance a widow could be there.

So I rushed my ass to the store because THEY WOULD NOT HOLD THE FIGURES (arghhh), they told me they don't hold 'collector' stuff. Such BS. Anyway...

I got there, saw widow at the FRONT of the pegs front and center. immediately grabbed it! I also grabbed Winter Soldier as that was the first time I had seen him as well.

So, after I went into the isle next to it and looked at the LEGO. Then I heard someone come into the Marvel Legends isle, look at the figures, and go "awwww!" -- I was literally about two minutes ahead of this guy who was probably looking for Widow just like me. Talk about close...

So never give up hope, you could be the guy to "get there first" someday :)

ANYWAY... I just hope Hasbro as well as retailers realize how much people love these last few waves of Marvel Legends... they are doing a fantastic job and I want them to keep at it.

Spider-Man 2, Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy... all 3 are definitely among the very best Marvel figure waves Hasbro have done.

I also noticed some video reviews are starting to roll out. Here is one of the full set.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5AePvekuVDE

I can't believe people are bitching so much about Rocket... it's a really good figure for its size... what do they expect? Rocket is a small character there is only so much they can do. I don't think his articulation is really that bad at all. It is more limited than the larger figures, I agree.

Also as I am writing this Rocket is back in stock on amazon. Nova is still sold out though.

yeah, pixel dan's reviewing style is really boring and sanitary. once you've seen some really good toy reviewers (like JANGbricks for LEGO stuff or Vangelus for TF stuff), it's hard to look back. Unfortunately some of the dullest toy reviewers tend to be the ones that get stuff earliest. Why? Probably cause their reviews are very "safe" so companies like Playmates feel they are a good choice to send free review samples to cause they know the reviews will be relatively positive regardless of the item.

All that is true. He's just stale and boring. But my biggest problem with him was when he was looking at a Hot Toys figure and told his viewers something like "if you're to complain about the price of Hot Toys you shouldn't be in the hobby of collecting toys." What an asshole thing to say! He's a toy snob and he has a very high opinion of himself.

Congrats!! I went to TRU yesterday and there was actually a line outside waiting for them to open. Once it opened, one guy ran back to the action figures. When I got there, there was a bunch of ML Cap figs, but I saw no black widow. Not sure if he grabbed it or not.

Grats on getting her!

Wondering when GotG will start showing up in stores? Can't believe I already have the full set... I haven't had this much luck in a ML wave in a long time. Usually I'm hunting around for weeks.

LOL. Well, all I have to add is... I watch tons of reviews, and even if a toy reviewer I don't really like gets to review something first, I will definitely watch the review. You have to bring your own assumptions to the table and parse what the reviewer is saying, especially if you already know the reviewer has some of their own biases.

Most reviews are helpful in some way and can help determine a purchasing decision for me, as long as the reviewer is actually TRYING. Like, I need to see different angles, poses, stuff like that. Some reviewers are so TERRIBLE they literally sit the figure in front of the camera and talk about it without really moving it much at all. Those are the reviews I can't stand.

Discogod

I love his enthusiasm for the ankle pivot.

It's one of the most important joints on an action figure, essential for both dynamic posing and just standing there on the shelf. That's why I was so pissed off that the Classics Bebop & Rocksteady lacked any kind of ankle artic.

Anyone else manage to snag the ultra-cheap X-Men Legends on TRU's website yesterday? They went up at $14.99, with buy one, get one half price, but were taken down shortly afterwards. I managed to get a set with an extra Storm, even with shipping to the UK & customs fees it's going to work out at just under 13 per figure, much better than the 16-22 we normally pay here.

Just got to hope my order's not cancelled now...

Never pass on those things. People love those army builders. They're kind of hard to come by right now. At least where I am. I've only ever seen 1 Hydra soldier on the shelf and I grabbed it. A.I.M. Soldiers have been a little more abundant but I don't like them at all. I'll usually by them for other poeple. I have no trouble at all unloading those guys.

We all know the Americans are spoiled, but I always assumed that the UK gets releases at the same time, if not sooner, than Canada. What I'm finding is there really is no set pattern to world wide distribution. The original X-men set, for example, has been at TRU here for over a month now.

Yeah, if we get Legends (and it's a crapshoot) it's usually 2-3 months behind the US at least. In the past couple of years we got the Terrax & Arnim Zola waves, then nothing until the Iron Monger wave, then the Spidey Infinite series. No Cap series, none of the mini-BAF waves, and none of the TRU exclusives will ever make it over here. We're not even getting the GOTG wave at retail here.

At least we got huge quantities of red Deadpool & white Doom at discount stores here. That certainly eased the pain...:lol:

I find it odd that my Walmart has a better selection than my Target. Target had a few Spideys, one Superior Spidey, one Beetle, and the GOTG ones I mentioned earlier. Walmart had a few Spideys, a few Superior Spideys, an Electro, Boomerang, few CA:TWS Caps, Red Skull, Winter Soldier, Hydra soldier...no Black Widow though. :ohwell:

Yeah McFarlane spidey is the holy grail for spidey figure fans, but the ASM ML spidey stacks up to it VERY well and costs way, way less.

Also the film costume is so accurate to the comics, you could easily use it as a comic book spidey not just a movie spidey.
I wouldn't be shocked if Walgreens doesn't even put it out.
Hmm, what do you mean? It's pretty much confirmed to be their exclusive so they should be showing up soon. Also Agent Venom is two per case which is quite good. Sadly since all the other figs in the case are fairly easy to find and have been available for some time now... even having Venom 2x in a case may not be enough and he's still going to sell out easily while the others sell far less.

I have lots of Walgreens in my area, but not all carry toys. I was able to find the Walgreens exlucive Rick Grimes from Walking Dead there last year without much issue though... I hope this turns out like that, because if it does, they won't be hard to find at all... at least in the first couple weeks of release.

Also... not ML but I found the "small" Guardians of the Galaxy toys at TRU... not the ML but these ones:

And.... holy hell they are TINY they are smaller than Marvel Universe scale by around half.

Not sure I'm interested in getting figs that small for that line... however it is worth noting they seem to be in scale with the ships that are being released, so that is rather cool.

I like to use twistie ties. it helps that most action figures come with a few in the package. So I have a big pile of them and you can use them to make ropes, spider-man's web, all kinds of things.

Today I walked into TRU and I was incredibly happy to find... an entire case of the x-men legends wave on the shelf! Another collector was in the isle but luckily he had no interest in them so I had nobody to battle with :lol:

yes... I bought all 5 including unmasked wolverine (i actually really love the head and the folded up mask on his back)

Oh and jubilee with her effects parts is really great... glad to have her.

they were 21.99 sadly... seems like the new standard price for ML.

Well, 2 of the 5 X-Men figures I ordered from TRU are on the way - Cyclops & Stryfe, my 2 least wanted... :lol: Hopefully I get my Magneto & Storms eventually.

To make things worse, my Thanos Imperative set languished at my local delivery office for 6 days, then got delivered this morning... to my next door neighbours. Who we've instructed the post office to NEVER leave our post with. So that's 120+ pissed down the drain...

Yeah, not an option. We don't get on well with them (to be fair, no one does), and knocking on their door is likely to result in a stream of abuse. To give you an idea of what they're like, they have 3 large dogs that they never clean up after. When we asked them to clear the crap out of their garden (since it stank and was attracting vermin), they simply gathered it up and threw it into our garden.

Last time a package was delivered to them, I got it a week later after their dogs had torn it apart. "It came like that" was the excuse. I fully expect the same this time...

Were Magneto and Storm actually on TRU's site recently? I found Stryfe and a pile-o-Wolverines at a TRU last week, instantly went to the website and couldn't find them. The next closest TRU to me hasn't gotten them yet.

Sucks about your Thanos set. I missed out ordering from HTS when they finally went up (but I did get Jabba....small consolation, I guess).

Don't know, I ordered them a couple of months ago when the whole wave was first listed at $14.99 each (plus they were buy one get one half-price). They were removed after a few hours, but not before far too many people took advantage of TRU's mistake...

Yeah, but so did most of the people who ordered... Many have had their orders outright cancelled, whilst others (like myself) are only getting part of their orders fulfilled.

I've finally got my Thanos Imperative, too! My dad found it on the doorstep earlier, apparently the neighbours dumped on there earlier. The mailing box was opened, and the whole thing was soaked after sitting out in the rain, but the figures themselves are ok. I guess they opened it, realised they couldn't sell it for smack money and decided to give it back...:roll:

It's not fair... thanos imperative set SOLD OUT while i was sleeping that day... I had zero chance to buy it.

Guys... start hitting up your local Walgreens and looking for Agent Venom if you want him. Unless you pre-ordered on walgreens.com (sold out there now though). Stores are receiving cases of EIGHT Agent Venoms so they won't be hard to find... at least for a few weeks till they start selling out :p

Not all Walgreens are going to carry them. Depends on if they have much of a toy section. Good tip though... have you seen the Game of Thrones Legacy figures at your local Walgreens? If so, they will probably carry the Marvel Legends.

I finally got all the guardians figures! I'm still waiting to go to TRU to see if I can find Magneto or Storm (Cable should've been in the set IMO)

Graaats.

The wave has done really well. So happy to have the set, not only are most of them really good figures but being able to build Groot made buying them all very worth it.

2015 is looking very strong as well for Marvel Legends figures, SDCC showed us they have a lot coming down the pipe. Most of them look great.

On Friday, the closest TRUs to me got their shipment trucks in. I called the closest one (read: an hour away) and gave them the item number for the X-men wave. They said they had 8 (a full case) and told me they would get Storm and Magneto out of the case for me. After waiting on hold for about ten minutes, I was told the entire case was sold instantly after the associate put it on the shelf and the store's inventory system was wrong. Since the box wasn't every actually put out yet, they either couldn't find the case, or an associate was keeping them for himself.

I called the next nearby TRU (read: an hour and a half away) and gave them the item number.They said they had 12, some were on the floor and some were in the back. They transferred me to someone on the floor to check. The associate said all that was on the floor was Wolverine, but they would get the other case out of the back. After waiting on hold, a different (and nervous sounding) person picked up the phone and said they don't get items out of the back, ever. They don't open cases to look for specific items either. Then, after some weird hesitation, said they didn't have a case in the back anyway. I asked why they would say they didn't get things out of the back, which is clearly untrue anyway, if they didn't have a case. Why not just say you don't have a case in the back, that seems like the easier lie to pass on. He stammered for a little, and then said the case might be all Wolverines. I told him it wasn't, and to get the Magneto and Storm out for me, and put them at the front desk so I could get them. He said he would. I called back ten minutes later to confirm with the service desk they were being held, then drove to get them.

I really enjoy the toy lines I collect, but hate the hassle of trying to track things down. I've been collecting Marvel Legends since day one, and have all the standard releases and the majority of the exclusives and variants. When I saw that these two were 1 per case, and TRU exclusives, I knew they were going to be a pain to try and get. Then I feel like a jerk trying to talk to associates to get the items.

I did get the Storm and Magneto, along with some more vintage re-release Foot Soldiers and another Star Wars Black Biker Scout. Also, managed to score a Thanos Imperative set when they went back up on HTS on the morning of the 14th. So all is right in my world with Marvel Legends......for now....

I HATE having to compete with other toy fans to get the figures I want. They need to just make enough for demand -- period. Hasbro is now allowing retailers to order as many as they want of specific figures -- for example, Boba Fett. They need to do this for more items. Now that Marvel has gone ultra mainstream with the success of the films, and Star Wars hype is in full gear again thanks to the upcoming TV shows and movies... these figures are harder than ever to get your hands on.

I have been trying VERY HARD to get a thanos imperative box set but I think all my chances are gone. Thinking about going ebay this time. I just have to decide if owning black bolt and medusa is worth the extra money. star lord looks good but honestly I prefer the movie design.

And there is a reason some people work at TRU... it's cause they love toys. Not always, obviously, but a lot of younger collectors will find themselves working there. Which definitely explains why sometimes I'll go into TRU and find all the 1 per case figs missing off the shelf immediately after they just restocked that very morning before opening the doors.

And don't get me started on the assholes you have to encounter at toy stores who are waiting next to you for TRU to open their doors, and once they do THEY LITERALLY RUN AT FULL SPEED back to the action figures to try to grab figures before you. Are you kidding me? I hate that I have to deal with that ******** when I should be able to buy anything I want online easily.

WHAT insane. I bought mine for 21.99 each at TRU, you could have price matched toysrus.com at the reception desk.

ALSO... amazon is listing the entire wave for 22.99 per figure you can also price match that way if you wanted.

I saw the full GotG wave (yes including nova and rocket) at target and toys r us yesterday! I thought long and hard about buying a second rocket (i already have two Nova)... but I just couldn't do it, had to leave them for someone else. Was their lucky day to find them, I hope.

And look what I ordered...

Let them jack their prices up all they want... you can still price match. Don't pass up cool figures when it's easy to get them to adjust the price :)

Actually if they mark up the prices this is GOOD... as long as you know the secrets of price matching ;) Because other people who might see the figures before you could pass on them due to the higher price.

Read this and be familiar with it:
http://www.toysrus.com/shop/index.jsp?categoryId=11949070

TRU will even price-match LEGO.com -- this is awesome, very few stores will do that. So even if their LEGO sets are marked-up (common) you can get them to lower it. Just bring a smartphone with you, load up an online store page with the lower price, show them... and they change it.

It's also important to know that in-store prices at TRU and prices on toysrus.com may be different. So while your store was charging a ridiculous price, they will still lower it to the toysrus.com price for you.

Don't forget you can also price match at Target and lots of other stores.

Be careful when playing with them - the QC's awful on these, and a lot of guys over at Fwoosh have had breakage issues. Personally, whilst Starlord, Blastaar and Gladiator were perfect, Black Bolt had a screwed up neck joint, and Medusa's wrists, shoulders & torso joints were basically fused together and her ankle pegs snapped as soon as I moved them (not to mention the sloppiest paintjob I've ever seen). I managed to fix them, but it's incredibly frustrating to have to do that, especially after spending a huge amount of money.

Yeah, you might be lucky - it seems only a small percentage are having major issues. It doesn't help that the plastic used for most of the figures is that horrible, rubbery plastic used on the GOTG wave - that seems much more susceptible to tearing and getting stuck.

Not if you use clear polish and keep it away from smoke & direct sunlight.

Personally, I swear by the superglue method - as long as you use several very thin coats, it won't crack and flake. The margin for error is very high though, which is a major disadvantage.

Cool! I bought it a couple days ago... pretty expensive but the exclusive Ms. Marvel is a really nice figure to have. The cap and radioactive man are alright, but it's clear that Danvers is the biggest reason to buy this, at least to me!

Going to be rad owning both versions of her once the Captain Marvel version comes out later...

Unless amazon puts them up for pre-order like they did with Guardians of the Galaxy ML figures (I sure hope they do...), i'm going to seriously consider ordering a case or at least a full set somewhere cause if she's as hard to find at retail as Storm or Black Cat/Black Widow (i'm talking in the earlier months of their release, not lately)... it's going to be a battle getting your hands on her.

In all three of those cases I had really great luck and found them the week of their release... but my luck can't last forever.

For whatever reason Marvel seems willing to float her despite lower sales. I think the reason is clear now that the movie announcement has been made. They are willing to take a loss on her book in terms of sales so that they have a platform to build her up as the movie gets closer.

Marvel has a lot of strong female heroes, but I guess they wanted one even stronger, someone almost on par with Superman in a way. I hope she starts to catch on.

This wave is just absolutley FANTASTIC guys!

http://marvelousnews.com/index.php?catid=23&itemid=18256

Everyone is already speculating on just when these will hit shelves, it could be a repeat of last year where we'll see them sneak onto shelves close to Jan 1st (give or take a week?)

Have your pocketbooks ready!

Look carefully there are actually TWO build-a-figures, you can build King Thor or Odin, or if you want both you'll have to buy some multiples so look at the build-a-figure parts carefully.

Or, as long as you buy at least one full set, you can swap the parts in and out if you want to change your Thor into an Odin and back again.

I'm just SO IMPRESSED, each figure comes with accessories and/or swappable parts, so fantastic. Look at Iron Fist with all of those hands, wow. Glad Hasbro is continuing to include alternate heads when appropriate.

So... Hasbro... why don't you up your game and make your Star Wars 6" line as good as this? Would love to see a Build-A-Fig, or more accessories or swappable heads/parts in the 6" line.

I'm glad they gave the "body" piece to Hawkeye because I can see him being the pegwarmer if not for that. Oh well, looks like machine man will be the pegwarmer... with Sentry probably being a (distant) second.

some sites are listing the avengers wave... but so far I can't find anyplace that will let me order either A) all 7 indivually or B) all 7 as a "set"

Please report in if you guys spot anything! Keep your eyes open cause they should be going up for order sometime in early December unless it shows up a tad bit early in the next few days.

i plan on putting in an order on entertainmentearth if i can and using it as a placeholder since i could get lucky and end up finding the whole wave at retail.

The Odin wave, sorry for the lack of clarity!

Also, I was at Target a few days ago and was shocked to see they had two full sets of GotG 6" ML on the shelf. Saw 2 rockets, 2 nova. I was sooo tempted to buy another rocket for trading... but I have to save money for holiday spending :lol:

I hope the people who found those were happy! There were two FULL build-a-groot figures right there on the shelf waiting to be built!

You can pre-order the entire Age of Ultron ML wave on toysrus.com for 19.99 each, free shipping on orders above $50

http://www.toysrus.com/search/index.jsp?kwCatId=&kw=marvel%20legends&keywords=marvel%20legends&origkw=marvel+legends&sr=1

Good luck guys... I'm hoping more websites list them soon. I placed an order for all 7 at TRU but I will switch to amazon if they keep the 19.99 price however I have strong doubts... amazon will probably list them for 21.99, just a hunch.

more marvel legends info...

http://dorksidetoys.com taking orders for the new wave as I write this.

You get free shipping if you order a whole case. A case contains one of all 7 characters except hawkeye, which you get two of. hawkeye has the "body" Build-A-Fig piece so he's a good extra to have if you want to build both versions of the figure (Odin & King Thor)

also don't hold me to this but I think they don't charge sales tax... at least it didn't show up on the order I placed.

It's funny - I stopped buying Marvel Legends figures quite a while ago (due to a lack of space and funds), but I grabbed a Captain Marvel and a Hawkeye from the most recent wave and I'm worried the addiction's starting to come back. Haha. I missed out on getting the mohawk Storm a little while back and I'm still kicking myself because the eBay prices are bananas. (And tragically nobody carried the GotG wave in my city.)

I was a bit hoping we'd get Laura as Wolverine, cause I really like that look, but this is cool too.

Personally not a big fan of the brown suit. I'm mort4e in favor of the Astonishing suit, which had a second version in the Puck wave, although that Wolverine have gotten really expensive on the second marked, which is a shame cause I think he looks a whole lot better then the 2006 Toy Biz version.

I do hope the new Wolverine is short in height.

And the BaF of Juggernaut.

Got my Ironfist in the mail, found him fairy cheap loose without the BAF piece. He's so much better suited on the Pizza Spidey buck then the Bullseye buck. I was surprised to fins out that the wrapped hands could be taken off as well, but sadly the pegs on the hands form the Odin Ironfist is too long, skin tone's a bit off but snipping off a bit on the pegs and I can have some more diverse fist poses for him.

Now I'm just waiting for my Jubilee to arrive.

Candy Kappa
07-04-2017, 08:42 AM
Yeah, and I think it's the exact same figures I saw three years ago :lol: And here I was being all happy when I first saw the Ult. Goblin wave thinking ML is finally back after last figures I saw was that line that had X-Men 3 movie figures in it...

I didn't even buy any of the Odin figures when I first saw them in-store, I got the whole 7 figures wave on BBTS for the same price as 3 figures at TRU. And of course no TRU exclusives, I don't think TRU in Norway or UK gets them.

So, I'm getting the Netflix/Marvel Knights line from a online retailer, and hope the A-Force pack isn't too pricey cause I need She-Hulk, Lady Loki and Sif

BTW, I got my Bootleg BAF Jubilee, and she's pretty solid. Legs a bit gummy and a bit "off", and her wrist pegs are a bit small looking but beyond that I'd recon she's on-par with the legit version.

Candy Kappa
07-04-2017, 12:13 PM
Rag. Loki do look a bit weird, the torso looks off in proportions. I think it's due to the position og the belt and how that skirt piece is set on. He's also super glossy looking, I hope he's more matte in final product.

snake
07-25-2017, 04:54 AM
Venom-Pool I can probably pass on. He's kind of ugly and reminds me of that Superior Venom figure, which is a downside. They really went with the worst version of Venom-Pool possible, because I would've loved the bulky, hulk-styled red and black Venom-Pool.

The Vintage figures look great. They have those colorful costumes that I've always wanted and I have a feeling they'll be my "go-to" figures for years to come. Standouts include Cap and Iron Man (been waiting YEARS for a classic) Spidey is pretty cool too, but I would've made some changes, like making the spider symbol actually match the one shown on the package's character art. I'm super pumped about classic comic Widow.

The bikes are interesting. I would've done a more 90s/2000s style Ghost Rider but the blue highlights are nice I guess. Widow's bike looks very nicely sculpted and slick. I wish they put cleavage on the Widow figure. There's no excuse for no boobs. Even though I don't really need them, I'll be buying both.

Lizard wave is the typical Spider-Man wave with a BAF that I want and a ton of figures that I don't. Mysterio is 10/10, Spider-Punk is cool, I guess, if you're one of the people who wanted Spider-Punk. Gwenpool is cute as f*ck so of course I'll be getting her. I'm disapointed with Lasher, who looks skinny, lazy, and nothing like Lasher. I'll buy him.

Deadpool wave looks neat, although I was expecting a Lady Deadpool. The large purple guns on Domino are seriously pissing me off. Who thought that was a good idea? Obviously the stars of the wave will be Cable and Deadpool. X-23 is nice, I guess. Dethlok looks good! Especially considering the fact that it's Dethlok and I'm not sure anyone was clamoring for him. I'm curious who the BAF will be. No, it's not T-Ray. I highly doubt it's T-Ray.

Medusa and Mr. Fantastic exclusives look great and I'll take both, thank you.
Black Bolt and Namor are pretty nice too! Songbird is certainly a highlight for me- and she's a character that I care nothing about. I'm cautiously excited about Apocolypse. It's gonna be hard to top the toybiz one.

Defenders Box Set and Hydra Trooper Builder packs are going to sit, so I might as well let them. I'll buy them on clearance.

Candy Kappa
07-25-2017, 05:02 AM

snake
07-25-2017, 05:06 AM
You and me both, but I saw pics of the packaged version and they picked literally the worst heads possible. No Bob, no alternate color eye head. Instead you get a Hydra Taskmaster, a generic gas mask head, and 2 angry heads for the Hydra Enforcer.

Candy Kappa
07-25-2017, 05:42 AM
Oh that's sad, it would have been such a easy face to make with the sculpts being sculpted in 3D, just put the standard frown into a smile. Still getting it if it's not too badly prized online, I don't have the single card Hydra agent, he's been way too pricey whenever I've looked for him on eBay.

Aaw, I just checked the Sinister Six boxset and it's 3.75" scale. I didn't catch that watching the Fwoosh's video of the hasbro panel. I was hoping for a new Doc Ock and slipper wearing Kraven for 6" scale. I'm on the fence about the Defenders set, it's cool, but I already have IF and DD, and it's something about Luke's face-sculpt that don't appeal to me, so I'll probably wait until a MCU Luke appears.

Vintage style Spidey looks superb, I don't have a good adult Spidey so I'll probably get this one unless the Spidey & MJ pack isn't going down in price (sometimes MJ alone goes for okay prices), Pizza Spidey's face is better looking then Superior's face.

The large purple guns on Domino are seriously pissing me off. Who thought that was a good idea?
Ugh, yeah. The guns looks so dumb, just give us realistic guns already. Even 12" Deadpool had Nerfguns. I guess it's the same jackwagons that said no to Revoltech Wolverine having a cigar...

the Tomytech Little Armory at least have some nice guns she can have.

But my MCU Elektra came with a 3rd sai, that's pretty nifty.
