Movies must be a lot more profitable than I think because I'm just shocked Hasbro would shell out that much cash for pegwarm city and a dying toy line :-\

Would it be pegwarm city and dying if ToyBiz was still running the show? 
Yeah...not much left to be made

I just saw the next wave of ML at Wally World ...

Must say the Thor is the best of the lot. The Quicksilver is not too bad.

I was yet again, disappointed in the Wolverine. The expression and face itself were just terrible.

But the wave itself is not too too bad. I do like the Thor.

Since these are being sold under the "Marvel Legends" banner, I thought I would post this here.  It looks like Hasbro is continuing on after the Spider-man 3 3" Titanium figures with some "Marvel Legends" versions.  You can take a look at Hawkeye, Hulk, and Wolverine HERE, and I see they have a look at some Fantastic Four ones (Doom, Torch, Thing) right over HERE.  I don't know if anyone is interested in these, but I thought I would pass them along just in case.

I don't know how popular these are, but I do think that the 3" scale ($5-6 price point) might be a better bet than the larger scale Titanium figures.  Those seemed to tank with Star Wars, so I was kind of surprised to see them continue with the Marvel ones.  I don't see those doing the greatest either, since $15-16 is a little high for most people. I did pick up the Spidey one, and it is nice, but I couldn't go any further than that at those prices.

Has anyone seen the Marvel Legends Showdown on clearance at KB?  My KB closed a few years back and I could use some help in completing my set.  Please PM me if you can help.  Thanks in advance.

Last place I saw those on clearance was Target after the holidays.

A better question would be: "Has anyone seen a KB Toy Store on clearance?"  I don't think we have any KB's left in Minnesota.

Do the outlets carry the same stuff as a normal KB? I thought these were filled with stuff that even KB couldn't get rid of?

I'd probably only buy Tigra and Black Bolt but only if they were making more of the Inhumans.  Not much else in the top 50 I'd even buy:

01. Black Bolt
06. Tigra
14. Ultron - classic version
23. Enchantress
31. Wrecker
42. US Agent 
47. Arnim Zola

And as I've said before...I really don't care that much anymore.  I've gotten pretty much every single last thing I ever wanted out of this line.  We're in gravy territory.

I have a guy from Fwoosh making me a custom Tigra and Mockingbird, so I'll post pics on here when I get them.  He made me a sweet custom Kate Bishop last month - top quality stuff.

I wouldn't waste my time going out to Albertville.  We stopped there on the way back from Minneapolis last year and it sucked big. 

Canadian TRUs got in the diamond Emma Frost and promptly jacked the price up to $14.99 before taxes ::)  I'll confess this version looks better than the regular, but it's still wearing a diaper and I just can't get past that.

I couldn't tell you that last time I was in a KB Toy Store and purchased something let alone walked out of it thinking that the store was nice here in Minnesota. They have all sucked.

I prefer the Marvel Select Emma Frost over the former WWF Wrestler Chyna (Jonnie Lauer) inspired Hasbro Emma Frost. I hope that the Rachel Summers in Series 3 is more feminine looking.

Just as a heads up to anyone who is interested - I stopped by Wal-Mart this morning, and found they had put out HML Wave 2.  They had the entire wave, one of each, on the pegs.  I picked up She-Hulk, Yellowjacket, and Quicksilver.  Just thought I would let everyone know, because if they have hit here in Nebraska, I'm sure they will be all over shortly if not already.  The spending spree continues... ::)

Anyone finding the variant HML2 figs? (Green Quicksilver/Gold Yellowjacket)  Just wondering if each case has variants or will these be more difficult to find.
