I'm not wild about the selections, but I'm just fine with no mutants ont he list.  X-Men have had more than their fair share of figures over the years as far as I'm concerned.  That being said, I'd take some better known figures over Iron Fist or Ronin.  I'm also not a big fan of the Punisher, but he seems to be popular with the toy makers for some reason.

Yeah but we don't have that many X-Men in 3 3/4. As of now it looks like we'll be getting a couple in the "Wolverine" line. But they're all related to that movie.

You mutie lovers are never satisfied.  We're hardly getting any Avengers either and they have a bigger lineup than the X-titles by now.

Uh, the Deadpool and Maverick I saw (and probably others.  I have no interest whatsoever in this line, so I only did a quick glance at them) were certainly comic book based.

So are you guys seeing the 3.75" stuff at stores yet?  Walmart put it out here this week but at the rather frightening price of $9.72  :o  I'll admit they look nice and I would have been way, way happier to have this scale versus the original but I am not about to replace 75+ figures; just not going to happen. 

Oh, and should there be a new thread for the mini stuff?

I haven't seen any of this stuff at retail yet, though I pretty much only shop at Target with a little TRU mixed in.

In a recent Toyfare, Hasbro all but confirmed Legends is dead outside of possible more 2 packs...so, I don't see the need for a new thread

They're not supposed to be out in the States until March 1st.  Of course, I'm sure they'll start leaking out before then.

Fair enough and I have to admit, it makes me happy to know relatively little exists I'd have to chase after.

I thought it was a "spring" release, but wasn't sure whether that just meant post-Christmas.  If anyone was thinking of getting into them, they do look quite nice to be honest.  I might break down and get a Spidey but I'm going to try hard for no more than that.  Nothing else currently on the pegs really tickles my fancy, so I should be fine.

So they aren't going to be releasing the Nemesis wave?

Who is in the Nemesis wave?  Is this going to be a retailer exclusive?
