And I actually picked up the Classics Cyclops the other day at TRU, he's a bit short but he does the job, I would have preferred a coweled (hooded) Cyclops over the one they made...there are 2 Wolvies and a Gambit

What ticks me off is this whole line is here and they are making Legends WAY too X heavy...eh oh well, less money I need to spend

Agreed.  Too many x-figures with way too many holes in the Legends line.  

Hoping we see one or the other up here.  

We did receive ML I, II, III.  IV was very limited (TRU only) and no V yet.  Can still pick up the following at our grossly inflated retail price:
The Thing
Namor
Dr. Doom
Human Torch

Occasionally see Magneto too.

ML VI colored pics

Juggernaut looks huge.  Can't wait to see close ups.

I saw that Archangel in Wal-Mart yesterday... I don't like it. I hope a ML version is released eventually, with a more elegant look. Better wings, better face sculpt, etc.  :-\

Thanks for posting that link Mikey D.  I'm looking forward to seeing closer pics as well.  That Juggernaut does look pretty good (at least from what we can see), and definitely looks large.  That's good, I was hoping he wouldn't be underscale.  I really hope that the Phoenix isn't a chase figure as rumored though.  I keep telling myself I'm going to limit my collecting to Star Wars only, but Marvel Legends is the one line that keeps me buying a few here and there (X-Men figs at least).  Thanks again for the links, we should see more in a couple weeks hopefully!

Dang, link is gone now.  Oh well, time for a new computer at home.  Wonder how many toys I'd need to sell to get a new one?

I need a darned Red Skull.   :-\

Rehashing Elektra's house for Wolvie?

Rehashing Elektra's "backpack" for deadpool?

They look alright.  I will probably cave on Wolverine.  Deadpool and Juggernaut are good.  Phoenix will be nice, if I can get it.  Darn female chase figures, I'll need two so my kid can have one as well.  Cable is um, ok, I guess.  Not big on the movie figs or Punisher at all for that matter, so he'll be a drive by.  

Preordered a Red Skull from Amazon.  Will I get it?

This is a tad more concrete

-Cable
-Deadpool
-Juggernaut
-Punisher (movie version)
-Wolverine (brown costume)
-Phoenix

SERIES 7 - August 2004
-Hawkeye
-Apocalypse
-Vision
-War Machine
-Ghostrider Blaze
-Wolverine - Weapon X

SERIES 8 - October
-Captain America
-Doc Oc
-Man Thing

A TON better than what was rumored IMO, especially if the chases are what they were going to be...we should know all next week!

So, I'll be buying:

SERIES 6 - April 2004
-Juggernaut
-Wolverine (brown costume)
-Phoenix

SERIES 7 - August 2004
-Hawkeye
-Apocalypse
-Vision
-War Machine

SERIES 8 - October
-Captain America
-Doc Oc
-Storm
-Iron Man
-Ice Man

Plus they usually don't list chases in these lists, hopefully something even better will come along :)
