Found my set yesterday at Target.  It's great to finally see Legends return to the shelves.  I refused to buy the Universe figures out of protest (and not wanting to start another collection in another scale), so it's been a long time since I bought a Marvel figure (other than the occasional two pack).

Terrax was one of my biggest wants and he doesn't disappoint.  He's going to look great on the Galactus / FF / Space shelf.  Klaw's a little disappointing in his size, but at least it's good to get another classic villian on the shelves (same with Constrictor, although I like him better.  Must be the better costume).  Steve's got a big noggin and seems to be oversized just a tad.  Hope's ok I guess, but I don't really know who she is as I'm more of a DC comic reader nowadays.  Iron Man I only really bought for the BAF piece, but it's a good representation of the Extremis armor. 

Wave 2 looks even better.  Two members of the Wrecking Crew, probably my biggest wants in the line over the years, 2 classic female villians in Madam Masque and Viper plus a classic villian BAF.  Bucky Cap is looking good also.

Time to start thinking about rearranging the shelves as I'm quickly running out of room between all the Marvel and DC 6" figures I have (with a **** ton more coming).

Hey Mikey,

Want to sell your Iron Man?  That and Rodgers are the only ones I really want from this wave and I don't need the packaging or BAF piece.  Let me know if we can work something out.

Spotted some of these between Walmart and Target.  The Hope Summers figure is really nice, and so is the Ghost Rider figure.  Not really digging the rest and not buying any.  Cool, but not my thing.  Still, I would think Legends fans must be really geeked about this line coming back with some strong offerings.

I've been seeing these at TRU and Target for the past couple weeks now.  It is just nice to see Legends back on the pegs again, too bad it isn't at the old prices ;).

Yeah, didn't this line used to be in the $10 range?  $8.99, $9.99 or close to that?

Target looked to have the best price in town at $14.99...I think Walmart was $15-something.

Yeah Legends used to be more in the $10 range.  I even remember way back when I first started really collecting them (around series 3/4 of the Toy Biz line I believe), and finding them for around $6.88 at WM/Target for awhile.

I remember getting Series 7 figures at Target for $7 around the time that ROTS figures were shipping.  They were about the same price as Star Wars figures, which blew me away given the massive scale AND the BAF figure you got with them.  Those were the good old days.

I picked up an unmasked Dark Wolverine for trade bait; this line looks great.

I think I saw the remnants of wave 2 at Target today.  They had Bucky Cap x2 and not much else.

Anyone have a definitive list of the variants?  I know about Iron Man, but not sure about the others.  I'm only looking to get a few of these, but would consider buying one version over the other depending on what they're offering.

I don't know if this is a complete list, but I know most of the variants.

Wave 1:

Iron Man - blue version, red/gold version
Steve Rogers - solid shield/clear shield variant
Ghost Rider - blue flame/orange flame variant


Wave 2:

Daken - masked and unmasked
Madame Masque - also a Madame Hydra
Piledriver - Thunderball variant
Spiderman - Big Time green and black version and also Future Foundation white variant

I'm pretty sure that's all of it.  There is a wave 2 BAF Arnim Zola variant with either Zola or Red Skull as the faceplate on the robot.

I got my set of Wave 2 figures from BBTS this week (also saw remnants - Drax - at our local Target, so they are getting out there).  Pretty nice wave overall, and I'm really happy with the line so far since its recent return.  This is how my set broke down (as far as what versions):

Spider-Man (Future Foundation)
Madame Masque
Drax
Fantomex
Bucky Cap
Thunderball
Daken (Unmasked)

BAF Arnim Zola

So, I'm still on the lookout for "Big Time" Spidey, Madame Hydra, and Piledriver (don't really care about the masked Dark Wolverine).  Hopefully those versions won't be too tough to find.  From what I recall, there are only three waves planned for the year, so these could be out there for awhile before Wave 3 shows up.  Doesn't seem like a lot, but it is enough for me (especially when collecting other lines).  A nice rounded lineup, and I look forward to more.  It is nice to have Legends back...although I'm already having to pack much of these waves up because I don't have room for them right now ;).

What do you think about the figures themselves Brian?  I just nabbed the Steve Rogers with energy shield variant off Ebay last week and was looking it over this weekend.  Pretty solid figure with nice detail.  I'm much more impressed with the Legends line this time around vs. when Hasbro first took over.  I'm also a bit surprised as to how these are mostly sold out everywhere I go.  You can tell when a new case comes in because there are 1-2 straggler figures, but I've yet to come across more than 3 or 4 on the pegs.  I wonder if that speaks to the demand for the figures or the success of the BAF concept.
