2011/2012 Marvel Legends
« on: February 12, 2011, 06:13 PM »
I was just reading through some info at Fwoosh about the return of Legends, sounds like Hasbro talked about it today in their Marvel presentation.  Sounds like the line will start again with Figure #0, a new Modern Thor that will be a SDCC exclusive.  After that, the first official wave will begin in January of 2012 (or possibly Christmas of this year) and will be back in the 8 figure, build a figure format.  The build a figure for the first wave is Terrax, and the other figures said to be included are Bucky Cap and Ultimate Hawkeye (obviously with an Avengers influence with the movie coming next May).

I'm sort of looking forward to it, although I'm caught between continuing with both MU and Legends, which seems sort of crazy.  It sounds like they don't plan on "starting from scratch" with Legends, and just continuing where they left off, which I think is a good idea.  Many of the Toy Biz (or even Hasbro) figures from before hold up pretty well, and I think honestly if they are going to do the main guys again, I'd rather see modern versions (like the announced Modern Thor, Bucky Cap, Ult. Hawkeye, etc.) and then sprinkle in the classics that we've never gotten.

I am so torn now. I loved Marvel Legends and now i love Marvel Universe. I really want a Terrax and dont want to support both lines. I have passed on all the Marvel Legends 2-packs, which wouldnt be a problem to catch up with since TRU has them all. What to do!  ::)

This was all great news until you mentioned ultimates Hawkeye.  With an ultimates influenced Nick Fury, I hope they don't follow suit on giving Clint the Ultimates outfit and style.  The old purple and blue with trick arrows is the only way to go!

Yeah, I'd rather have "classic" Hawkeye as well, especially since I never got the ToyBiz Legends version.  I would guess they are going the Ultimates route because the classic version has technically been done before (but not by Hasbro), and rumors suggest that he will look more Ultimates-like in next year's movie.

I don't know for sure, but that is just what I read early on - shortly after Renner was cast.  Honestly, I didn't expect him to show up dressed in all purple with that mask, but hopefully they don't go full on Ultimates style either.

Yeah, I hear ya on that.  But I made the decision to kill Legends off in my collection.  Ultimately it was a space issue for me - I wouldn't do both and they'd done a good enough job on the 3.75" scale that I made the move. 

I sure took a bath on some of the figures and have yet to clear out everything.  There are also some Legends figures I really liked and they have yet to do them in the Universe collection (Man Wolf) so that's a bit frustrating.  But mostly what's left isn't worth all that much money (maybe some good return on a few Hulk figs) so I haven't been too anxious, especially after a couple of dud Ebay buyers back in December.  I do need to finish getting rid of the stuff though.  I think all I intend to keep is the BAF Sentinel and the BAF Galactus. 

Probably the most annoying part of the switch is that the Marvel stuff is no longer the same scale as the DC stuff I have.  Of course my DC stuff is out of scale with some of the other DC stuff anyway depending on what line it came from, so it's a bit odd anyway.

I didn't sell any of mine which makes it even harder. It honestly all depends on how terrax looks since i have wanted him for a while  ::)

I dabbled briefly with this line just to grab the Judge Dredd stuff, which was amazing. I really hope they offer up a few more of those in this latest carnation. Judge Anderson would be nice, and the rest of the "Death Judges".
