It sure seems to have been a lull lately in all things Marvel. I think the last time I bought a Legends figure was before Christmas (the F4/Spidey/HML 3 waves), and I haven't heard anything of HML 4 showing up anytime soon. It might be due to Hasbro taking over the license, the character selection dwindling, or just so many lines out there these days - but it is starting to seem like DCUC is taking that area's thunder a little bit. I mean, Marvel had its time with the 15 mostly great waves from Toy Biz alone, so I can understand any shift in attention there might be. Plus, Hasbro does seem to have plenty on their plate these days with Star Wars, Indy, Iron Man/Hulk movies, Transformers, Joe (not to mention movies for Joe and TF again next year).
I grew up more of a Marvel fan, although I've always enjoyed both universes, but I have to admit I'm a little more excited for the DCUC line lately. Of course, I think a lot of that may be because I already have my "ultimate" Spidey, Cap, F4, X-Men, etc. and we're still looking forward to pretty much all of the "big guns" from DC, outside of Batman and Superman. I'm curious to see what the Legends line holds for this year beyond HML and the Hulk waves, like what we'll see in the 2-packs. Is anyone else's interest dwindling a bit? I'm sure once the new stuff starts hitting, things will change, because I am looking forward to long-requested figures like Black Bolt and Tigra. Anyways, random thoughts, just noticing a quiet down on the Marvel Legends side of things lately.
I think you're actually being modest about the legends line - it has been nothing short of dead the last year from what I have seen. Two waves over the course of a year? YAWN. I hit a good variety of stores and I never see a changeup of these figs. They have to be some of the slowest moving product in the aisle. Although to be fair, I'm not really seeing a lot of sell thru on the new DC line either...
