He looks neat enough, I may go ahead and order him. Does anyone know if theres anything fancy and exclusive about this particular Thor that would set him apart from a retail release? I seem to remember reading somewhere that Thor is supposed to be in wave 1 as well.

I caught the segment on Attack of the Show last night where they showed the new Thor figure....looks pretty neat.  I'm hoping I can pick one up on HTS after SDCC.  I'm wondering how shipping is going to be with these exclusives, between the Death Star set, the large Indy set, and the Hammer packaging on Thor it doesn't make for great packing.  Although I have been picking up a lot of the Marvel Universe line, it is kind of exciting that Legends is going to be making its return.  Outside of SW, I don't know if there was another line that I was more into at the time.

Hmmnn...still undecided on this.  I have the Select version and think its actually more comic accurate.  Probably a pass for me unless I see this cheap (which is unlikely).

Early ML scoopage from pre-preview day...  from AFI:

Quote
Wave 1 will be in the case the whole show. Wave 2 will debut at Hasbro’s Marvel panel and then be in the case after that.

Wave 1 will be: Klaw (classic look), Hope Summers, Constrictor, Steve Rogers as the Super Soldier, Iron Man (one of his classic armors), what looks to be the new movie version of Ghost Rider, the Comic Con Thor and the Build-a-figure is Terrax

YESSSS!!!!!!!!! Terrax the Tamer FTW!

Why can't we get great pre-Preview Night scoop like this for the SW line?

I want to know what's going to be in the case, what's going to be in th slide show, the whole shebang.

Kind of makes you want to skip exclusive Thor if you need him for the BAF...

I see Marvelous News has pics up of Series 1.  Although I don't know if I need the whole series, they do look pretty well done - and I'm happy to see Legends back.

Thanks for posting pics Brian.  These look fantastic.  Rodgers is a must have and I might bite on both Thor and Iron Man.  I wish they had done a more current comic look for Iron Man, but overall these look great.  I have high hopes for future waves.

Thanks Brian!  I'm game for Rodgers and possibly Iron Man and Thor from S1.  Madames Masque or Hydra might be worth getting if they're done well, as arch enimies of Cap and Iron Man.  I'll probably get Bucky-Cap too if I can.  Not very excited about the rest of the figs or the BAFs, but it is very nice to get 6" figs back.  Now I just have to hope they're not $20 each.

I know they might be a couple months off yet, but is anyone here jumping back into Legends with the line's "comeback" this year?  I know around the time I first got online (or first at JD), Legends was probably the second biggest line outside of Star Wars (and maybe LOTR), with a pretty busy forum and everything.  I've been back and forth since space is an issue, and I'm already collecting the Marvel Universe stuff, but I'm planning on picking up some of the new ones - but maybe not all.  I am glad to see the line return though.  Universe is much more display-friendly (and has really been on a roll lately after a rough first few waves), but there's something about that detail in the Legends figures.  Some of the old Toy Biz ones are still some of my favorite figures.

I've really only picked up the Avengers figures from both Legends and Marvel Universe, but I've expanded that over the years to include a few characters from the old days or who have just had regular involvement with the team.  I wouldn't normally call Captain Marvel, Hulk, or Beast part of the Avengers, but I picked them up anyway.  I've spent a good deal of ca$h on figures they never made, like Sersei, Crystal, Mockingbird, Starfox, Giant Size Cassie Lang, and Kate Bishop and I have upgrade customs of Tigra and the 80's Black Knight with his winged horse. 

There aren't too many more characters I want to add, but I will still pick up a few of these.  I have a 6" Hall of Armors display for most of the Iron Man figures, so I would probably nab him and the Stealth variant if I like them.  Commander Rogers would be interesting too, though I only include one of each character in my display and not sure I want to replace Cap.  I'd probably snag Thor too - depends on how much I like them when I finally see them.  I certainly wouldn't be opposed to uprading some of my existing characters if they're even better this time around.

Anyone else getting these?  How about the Avengers movie figures?  Much as I like the Avengers, I think I'm going to pass on the movie line.
