Rocket Raccoon doesn't seem to have an articulated lower body sadly. I see myself getting a few of this figures.

I like that old/new style Hawkeye.  Is it one figure with interchangable head or two variations?  I have not had much luck coming across ML variants.   :-\

Thanks!  Anyone else here bidding on it?  I might just go this route as I didn't want to get all of the Iron Man figs anyway.

I got the latest wave of Legends from BBTS, and they really are some pretty nice figures.  Of the variant figures I received the Protector (instead of White Iron Fist), Hyperion (instead of Sentry), Red She Hulk (instead of Lyra/Savage She Hulk), and Archangel.  I still don't have room for all these, until I rearrange things, but I really think Hasbro has improved on the Legend figures after a somewhat rough start.  A nice looking line overall, although not very space friendly :).

2013/2014 Marvel Legends

Looking at the Legends presence/news out of SDCC, and I have to say there is quite a bit I'm pretty excited about.  I've been getting more and more back into the Legends stuff, particularly with MU basically being on hiatus lately as well and the figures themselves have been pretty great.  Looking at the announcements, it sounds like these are the final couple waves of this year:

Wave 5 - Rocket Racoon
Wrecker/Bulldozer
Jean Grey (and variants)
Hawkeye (classic/modern)
Black Panther
Scarlet Spider

Wave 6 - Jubilee
Marvel Now Thor
Agent Venom
Radioactive Man/Tiger Shark
Moonstone/Songbird
Blizzard/Batroc the Leaper

After those last two waves, the Legends line will shift to a rotating movie focus (similar to Iron Man Legends and Wolverine Legends this year), and the following figures were announced or shown:

Captain America Legends
Marvel Now Captain America
Baron Zemo
Red Skull (Movie)
Captain America (Movie)
Black Widow (Movie)
Winter Soldier (Movie)

Spider-Man Legends
Black Cat
Ultimate Green Goblin (Build a Figure)

There was also mention of a comic Star Lord coming later on, so I'm guessing it might become "Guardians of the Galaxy Legends" or something like that later as well.  Even with the new approach, I have to say I'm pretty excited for what's on the way in this line.

I had an order arrive from BBTS this week, and it had the newest wave of Marvel Legends (Rocket Raccoon wave).  I have to say, this is a really solid wave all around.  One of my favorites in awhile.  As far as the breakdown of what was included in my set (not sure which variants are coming when):

Black Panther
Scarlet Spider
Jean Grey (regular)
Wrecker
Hawkeye (modern)

These five, along with the Rocket Racoon BAF are all pretty great.  I never had a Jean Grey in this scale (missed the Toy Biz version), and we're now one step away from the complete Wrecking Crew, which is pretty sweet too.  Hopefully these variants will be showing up, unlike the previous couple waves, so we can get Bulldozer, Phoenix, and Classic Hawkeye (which I also missed the TB version).  Hasbro had a bit of a rough start with the Legends stuff, but I think their recent stuff has been pretty top notch.
