Marvel Legends Thread

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 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



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

Rocket
Nova
Gamora
Star-Lord
Galaxy Iron Man
Drax


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

Spoiler:


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)

I really want to get the All-New X-Men box set of the original X-Men, but after watching Shartimus Prime's review I'm a little apprehensive about getting them.

It's a poor set for the price.

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

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.

I really wanted that Nova when he was revealed at TF. But he'll probably be as hard to find as a CAWS Black Widow.

Confession... I have two black widows!

I found one at Target... bought a second on amazon, I'm holding it for trading, I'm sure it will come in useful someday.

Fans in the UK, do you guys know where I can get the All-Father, Thanos, Hobgoblin or Groot waves at retail? I know I can get them online, but I like to see if I can get best paint quality. Those figures aren't the cheapest.

Allfather wave has shown up at Toys R Us and Entertainer, 23 a figure. The others either only reached speciality shops or haven't been released yet over here...

Some very nice figures was shown at Toy Fair. Love the new male teen body, it's great to see a teenager Spidey figure.

Iron Fist looks great, a new Rogue that actually looks good and a new Deadpool.

I've given up seeing MLs in the wild where I live. TRU still on the damn Odin wave with 1 AoU Wasp.

You've been on the Odin wave for what? 3 years now?

Over here I still see a few Machine Men and Sentries. I expect they will rot on the pegs eternally.

Yeah, and I think it's the exact same figures I saw three years ago 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.

Same! Jen is one of my favorite Marvel characters, so I need that She-Hulk.

I just got most of the Homecoming on Hasbro Toy Shop, so I'm excited to get those in hand. Really looking forward to the Hulk BAF and the Marvel Knights wave. But is it just me, or does Ragnarok Loki look kinda wonky?

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.
