If this is true, this is pretty good news...thanks for posting it.  Although I don't collect Spidey figs, that sure seems like a heck of a lot of Spiderman versions for the next movie...but if people like them, sounds good to me!  I'm most excited about the X-men Classics news...Iceman and Nightcrawler are two that I was really hoping we would see soon.  It would be pretty nice to have a Legends/Classics X-Men lineup of Cyclops, Beast, Wolvie, Gambit, Iceman, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Rogue, and Archangel if this news all holds up.  Thanks again for posting this :).

Take this with multiple grains of salt of course, but I noticed over at the ADC forums (or Toy News International now I guess), they had a "rumored" lineup for ML6.  It might be totally off base, but I thought I would post it here to discuss either way:

1.juggernaut
2.hawkeye
3.cable
4.wolverine(weapon x)
5.pheonix
6.deadpool

If true, I'd be pretty psyched to get a Juggernaut, as well as Phoenix.  Anyways, sorry if this turns out to be untrue, but I thought it might be fun to discuss.

Way to X-Men biased at first glance to me (especially since they have a whole line dedicated to the X-Men)...why we need another Wolverine before other core Marvel charcters baffles me.  If true I am psyched for the Hawkeye though!

The only thing I would say against the possibility of the list is I thought Marvel/Invisible Girl/Woman was coming soon but she may be pushed back to wave 7.

I love that these only come out once every few months

BTW here is my current Wishlist

Vision
Scarlet Witch
Hawkeye
Black Knight
Moon Knight
Black Panther
She-Hulk
Hercules
Quicksilver
Wonder Man
Invisible Girl
Falcon
Kang
Ultron
Galactus!
Baron Zemo
Enchantress
Loki

And these all could be done in the X-Men Classics Line
Nightcrawler
Storm
Iceman
Angel
Havok
Blob

I also a while back came across the rather cool Directory

I thought the same thing OCB, quite a few X-Menish figures with that new line coming out....although I am glad to see them too.  We'll have to see I guess.  This, combined with the XMC series 2 rumors of Nightcrawler, Iceman, Pyro, as well as ML Colossus, XMC 1 Cyclops and Archangel, it could be a great year for X-fans.

4.wolverine(weapon x)
5.pheonix
6.deadpool


An interesting lineup, but yeah, it is rather X-Men stilted.  

On another note, I finally lucked out this morning, and I found a Goliath!  Got it at my local KayBee that finally got Marvel Legends 4.  Now if I could just find that darned maskless Wolverine.

Yeah I saw that list over there too.  Until its actually confirmed, I'll be a little skeptical.  Like others said, way too Xmen heavy, especially with their own line coming soon.

I still haven't bought a Legends yet! I just can't decide if I want Wolverine or Punisher or either one... Bah! Maybe I will get Wolverine & Sabretooth, or maybe, assuming this list is legit, Juggernaught & Collusus and Cable & Deadpool....

1. Juggernaut - always one of my favorites!
2. Hawkeye - I'll get it... if it looks like the pic below...
3. Cable - My absolute favorite!
4. Wolverine (WeaponX) - should be interesting...
5. Pheonix - I'm interested to see what they do, but I won't buy her.
6. Deadpool - Can't have Cable without Deadpool, man!

Juggernaut? :o  The Ephant Mon of the ML world?  That's going to be one serious hunk of plastic.  Or at least it better be.  As I recall, he was a bit larger than the average character in the comics.  

Hawkeye should be pretty cool.  The rest of them don't do that much for me, but we'll see.  Deadpool's pretty cool too.  This line is too X-men-ish though, I agree.  I'd be really surprised to see it continue this way.  Invisible Woman will go in instead of Weapon X (bound to be in X-men line).

I just bought the Punisher... AWESOME figure... Articulation is just incredible... Not enough guns, woulda been nice to have two pistols, and a better rifle, but, oh well. I also woulda liked a version more like Tim Bradstreet's than the 'classic', but oh well.

Bradstreet's Punisher :

Hell, I'm still looking for a Daredevil and finally found Elektra yesterday.  It might be a while before I see Gobby.

NO GG up here yet.  Morbius just showed last week and I actually passed on it.  Just wasn't that impressed.  Waiting for more new stuff, but all our stores are loaded with the first couple of waves still, so not looking too bright for the moment.  

When's ML5 due out?

Thanks.  That's a pretty long gap for you guys though, isn't it?  ML4 came out back in summer/spring.  I wonder why they're waiting so long.  I'd have thought early October or maybe November to get the full Christmas rush sales.  

Next question:  X-men boxed set - when? ???
