Found an entire endcap to these at Walmart tonight, and am in the process of putting Pitt together right now. I haven't bought a Marvel Legends figure since Hasbro took over (although I did get an Icon Silver Surfer tonight), but a BAF Pitt that looks this great was impossible to pass up.

Saw Savage Dradon and Judge Death (1 of each) at Walmart today. I would have bought the full set if they had it but i passed on the 2 they had.

I picked up a set of 6 tonight and built Pitt.  I found them at a WM on clearance already for $7 each.  When I noticed that I decided not to pass them up.

The Pitt figure is incredible.  I have two issues with mine, the elbow in the left arm doesn't have the "click" positining so he can't hold some poses and the upper body is so heavy the hip joints have a hard time holding him.

I might snag a second right arm if I can get another cheap but I don't know.  That one most won't have to worry about but the weight and the hip joints may be a problem with a lot of them.  Still, overall, it's an incredible figure.  And well worth the price, especially on sale like that.

I haven't gone through the basic line yet to know if I'm going to keep any of them but I may hold onto Witchblade and maybe Judge Dredd.  The rest, although they look good, just aren't up my alley as collectibles.

Pitt's been standing on my computer desk since I put him together and I still can't get over just how bulky he is.  I decided to compare him to the ML Sentinel and while that's quite a bit taller, Pitt wins out in sheer massiveness.  While I had them out I snapped a couple pictures.

Anyone seen series 2 yet?

Aside from Judge Death, of course.  :)

Is the scale on these meant to be 5" or 6"?  They seem small, aside from Pitt :-\

They're 6" for the most part.  I think they did some smallish characters because the Pitt figure was so large.  The sculpts on some like Madman, Dragon, Witchblade...they're good, but they're not overly involved nor do they have a lot of paint apps.

I wasn't really keen on any of the figures from the first wave but the Pitt figure is awesome and I was more then happy to buy them for that figure.

I picked up Stryker today. I am not sure if anyone here is still buying these but if anyone has any extra Monkeyman parts they are not going to use let me know. I dont want the entire wave. Thanks!

Ok, so i picked up Star and Marv. So basically now i only need 2 parts to finsih off Monkey Man. I dont mind picking up Judge Death, but don't want O'Brien. Does anyone have an extra right leg that they dont need?

Not Legendary Comic Book Heroes but independant figures. unpainted pics of Maxx, Shadowhawk, and Scud.

Indie Figures

I am more than happy to buy both Shadowhawk and Maxx. They are reporting that they are going to tweak Maxx a bit before production. (bigger feet)

It does look like they have a good handle on The Maxx.  I was never a Shadowhawk or Scud fan, though but I'll be interested to see what they do with Kabuki.

I have a hard time figuring out how this line ever made it to retail...my local Wally is already clearancing them as I don't think I saw more than 3-5 sell and that includes Christmas. 

Also, I also wonder if this line, Spidey3 and FF2 were why Wally didn't pick up the DCUC?

I'm waiting for them to clearance here.  :)  I picked these up for the website archive then sold them, but I've wished I would have held onto them.  Other things have taken priority so I haven't wanted to spend $10 a pop again, but I'll pick them up again if they're a bit cheaper.  I am kind of kicking myself for not buying a Marv that I saw yesterday, though I did find the Madman variant for the first time at the same store.  Honestly I didn't even know they made a Madman variant until yesterday.
