Ya gotta wonder why they put Elektra in this assortment, especially since there's a great Elektra in the Marvel Select series.  I actually would've preferred a movie Elektra, myself.

Price point.  Not sure how the Select series is for you guys, but for us it's only at comic stores and selling for $39.99 plus tax.  Marvel Legends is "only" $12.99.  That alone makes sense to me.

That said, I haven't picked up any of the Select stuff so not sure about articulation and playability etc.  Maybe they're deluded into thinking kids play with these things too.  They're only about $6-7 in the states, yes?

Really?  I regularly see them at Suncoast in my local mall for about $20.  And I got the Origin Wolverine at Tower Records on sale for $11.

I don't doubt that at all. For me, going to the US is like toy utopia.  All those common stores in malls carrying all sorts of toys.  Suncoast doesn't exist here and the record/movie type stores don't carry toys.  

Still, the price differential is there.  I am surprised it is an original Elektra and not a movie version, which probably would have snagged a much bigger portion of the non-collector market.

And the thought of a Jennifer Garner figure in black leather?   ;D

I have my Beast pilfering a box of Simpsons donuts.  X2 Nightcrawler is trying to 'bamf' his way to a glazed one.

No, no, the thought never crossed my mind.  Really.

My good buddy Jim (chuuckles) has me doing pretty well with these already.  Has my Gambit, Elektra and Beast.  Thinking of passing on the Punisher or waiting until I see him up here.  Now if only he'd stop slacking and find me a Goliath ;)

Why does the thought of a Howard the Duck figure seem so appealing ??? ;D

Anyone need Beast, Gambit, or Punisher..LMK. My Wal Mart has about 12 of each now.
