So, what did everyone think of the Legends showing at SDCC?  One of the few lines that I follow that actually had some new stuff and info to show, so that was nice.  I'm glad to see it appears Hasbro is dedicated to continuing the line now, after putting it on hiatus at the start of Marvel Universe.  Also curious to see that the upcoming animated Ultimate Spider-Man line (which I would assume is for kids) is also in the 6" scale.  Of the figures shown, I'm glad to see that we're getting the rest of the Wrecking Crew, the new costume Iron Fist, a new Jean Grey, and others.  Sounds like they'll continue the three waves per year thing, which is about right.  Also, for 2013, a switch to small build a figures (with Wave 1 being Hit Monkey, and a hint at Rocket Raccoon possibly coming later).

I really like the US Agent figure - can't believe how long it has taken to get Walker in the lineup.  Moonstar, Red She-Hulk, White Iron Fist, and Protector were all pleasant surprises.  I will pick up all of those if I can, which is beyond my usual allotment of ML figs.  New Jean Grey and X-Men Deadpool look nice too.  I rarely get the BAF, so not too worried about thcnages there either way.

I wasn't near a computer when these went up, so pretty much missed out on everything.  I wasn't sure I even wanted the Carbon Freeze set, so no big deal, but would have liked to have gotten the X-Force set (or the Masters of Evil set).  Oh well, I'll keep watching just in case.

Just got notice today that BBTS has the Wave 3 figures in stock (at least my preorder is now available), so those should be hitting fairly soon (hopefully).

I did "ship my loot" last week, and received Wave 3 from BBTS.  Another nice wave overall, especially for what amounts to a "fill in" wave from what I've read from Hasbro (no BAF, some repaints).  The Dr. Doom in this wave seems to be just a repaint of the earlier FF wave Doom, although the paint makes it look better I think.  The Deadpool I received was the X-Force version, so I'm not sure if that means that is the first one shipping or not (I still haven't ever seen a normal Deadpool through the Toy Biz or Hasbro lines, hopefully soon).  I also got Punisher (instead of Blade), and Mystique (instead of Moonstar).  I have both from the Toy Biz lines, but these are both nice figures as well.  I actually like the Mystique more I think, and Punisher isn't bad either (has a trenchcoat this time).  Nice to get a USAgent as well.  Oh, and there's another Iron Man, which isn't bad either.

Not really a Legend, but I did just get the Marvel Select Anti-Venom.

New figures shown at NYCC were Black Panther, Hawkeye and Phoenix (white version).

Pretty lackluster...

To say the least. What is their aversion to showing new single carded figures?

Yeah, nothing super exciting yet I guess, although I'm sort of glad they are doing (re-doing) Hawkeye and Phoenix, since I never got those from the Toy Biz Legends line and they are fairly pricey these days.  The Hawkeye sort of looks like the Dark Avengers color scheme, and I'd rather have the regular version (maybe it is a variant).  Nothing new really shown for MU that I've seen yet, still curious about the future of that line.

I don't know - I'm pretty happy with the lineup.  I'll be picking up a lot of these if I can find them for under $20 unlike current waves.  Hawkeye is a must, as is the Protector and Black Panther.  I'll probably get Red She-Hulk, Iron Fist, and White Phoenix as well.  I'm not sure I need another Sentry or Cap, maybe Moonstone though.  That's more than I would typically buy from a Legends or Universe wave.  And if there's some way to get a giant Iron Monger, I amgoing to be all over that.

OK, I know jack on super heroes, but is there a giant Sentinel figure for this line?

If so I guess it's showing up at Ross for cheap.

I could stop in sometime and look if people needed it.

Thanks Smash, figured I'd offer to help out if I saw them.
