Hey guys. Haven't been around for a bit, due to dealing with family problems. But I saw these pictures and just had to share with you guys. It's pictures of the upcoming Marvel Legends 12, 13, SMC, and X-Men 3 Figures. X-Men 3 figures have really got me happy that they're going classic apeman Beast with a bit of the Ultimate look thrown in. Coolness!! The army builder figures in Marvel Legends 13 is also a brilliant move. :)

Cool pics JJB's, Three or four out of all those pics will land in my son's room. (Mostly from 12 & 13) The rest unfortunately can sit on the pegs, we need some better choices after that.

Jesse Falcon from Toy Biz on the Warpath.

"Here's' my 2 cents on everyone else's 2 cents.

"F&^k" whoever posted those boards on line in the first place. I don't care who it was I really don't care who did it but understand what position that puts us in. That's just my knee jerk, not as an employee of TB, but just as me witch is why I like to post here I can be myself and not have to be a suit. Your seeing things that aren't finished and I hate that, I'm really not blaming anyone here because those images are all over the net right now and It would be pointless to ask people to take them down. I'm ****ed because we clearly designed those boards for use in sales meetings only and there not meant to be seen by the public for a reason. 1) They look like crap, 2) We haven't announced that the is the final direction for the line, & 3) A lot of things have changed since then.

What's changed?

A lot of what your looking at for 13 is incorrect. i.e. Crimson Dynamo = Gone.

Also ML 13 will not have side kicks. So I'm reading all of the hoopla over how much everyone loves this idea but the truth is it aint gonna happen! Now, if it were like 2 years ago, hell even an year ago we could have probably made it work. But now...Not with the world the way it is today and for the foreseeable future. But in my mind believe it or not this ends up being a win/win situation, here's why. The process of costing this assortment went thought a 4 month process, witch is like 4 times longer than usual. We went through several cost cutting measures witch ended up in the sidekicks going from 6" and 11 POA to being 5" and having 3 points of articulation ...and they still wouldn't cost out. Witch in a lot of ways I was happy about because it would have just been poop if we made them like that. So now ML 13 has a different pack in. witch your all going to poop over and have to wait till toyfair to see ( or at least until some on line jerk off posts it on there site to get more traffic).

So what about the Grunts you say? Where will they go? Who will feed them? Well.... truth be told as this line was shaping up ( or down as it may be) I was thinking of another away around this problem and what I came up with - in my mind - is actually BETTER than doing all of these guys as pack in's. Why? well I can't tell you until I've sold this idea to 2 more people and it's a reality and not just an idea. Once that's done you will know. And in a way, having 33 pages of jubilant text on this idea in 2 days actually helps my cause.

So all in all I guess this isn't so bad, but just to be sure f&*k you guys anyway.

Oh and P.S. I found this funny and you might as well. Just so that you all understand that it is nigh ( yes Nigh!) Impossible to make everyone happy at the same time... I thought it was very funny to read that people were ****ed that the Maestro had no fallen hero armor witch was NEVER in the comic. That armor was something we created with the first Hulk classic line, but when WE design an Ultron, a character that has looked different every single time it's appeared in the comic it's fu$%&*ing heresy! GREAT!!!! Oh, and before you go any further it was MY decision to do Loki in the suit he wears in the Loki mini series VS the spandex outfit he wore in the 60's , why? because I think it's cooler. And gues what? I'm right.

Jin = We did make the holster change to the Bishop that's an early picture. As for Blackheart...I love the sculpt the way it is and yes it has a tail.

Please don't bother following this up with a bunch of "hey Jesse" questions as this is the last thing I'm going to post for a while.

The upcoming Marvel Legends figures look great!

I'm not impressed with the X3 figures. I'm sure I'll like the movie, but is Hugh Jackman's likeness really that hard to do? I would like a really good movie Wolverine.

LTBasker
10-06-2005, 04:37 PM
The best likeness so far has been on X2's wave 2 gimmicked Wolverine figure, but sadly it bites due to the gimmick. Though it's very easy to find him, http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/subtoy2.asp?Queryid=tb172 .

Street Fight Logan from the same wave was a great Wolverine figure as it came with 3 pairs of hands, two varying length claw sets and then one bare fist set. Sad part is it had a really crappy likeness of Hugh Jackman. It is weird how ToyBiz can have the best and worst likeness of the same actor in the same wave.

Too bad about the pack-ins not working out. I hope they replace them with soemthing cool, another build a figure always works well.

Hey guys. Dropping in again for a few minutes, before I need to scram back off. My Mom's still not doing so great, which is why I'm continuing to mostly keep myself off the forums. She's better, but not really very well all around. Sigh. Anyway, just thought I'd pass on the news about ML 14 and 15. This is being reposted from another board I posted the info on. :)

Being a big fan of Marvel Legends, it's cool to see the early retailer lists that come out before everything is final. It appears that Toy Biz isn't even waiting for Toy Fair before spilling the seeds of what's possibly in store for late 2006. I can't say I'm likely to get many of these, considering I just collect X-Men. But otherwise, there's some great figures coming for Marvel fans. No news on pack-ins, but there's some juicy stuff on the way. Remember that these lists are expected to change quite a bit as we get closer to Toy Fair.

Sorry to hear about your Mom JarJar. Miss having you around here.
She had congestive heart failure back in September, if I recall. May have been late August. So we're trying to get her strength back up, but we keep getting knocked back down by fluid that backs-up into her lungs. And if we don't watch that, it will tax the heart again and make it even weaker. So yeah, I'm in a bit of a meh. Not even felt like talking to LTBasker, WhitebrowGigs, or Ceaser... who are like my closest friends on here. She'll get better soon, and I'll try to turn up when I can. Just felt like passing some info on for the people that I care about online. Peace out, man.

And now the bad news. Supposedly, Wal-Mart will be getting an exclusive series of Marvel Legends for their stores. And some of these figures include ones that have been asked for time and again. These have not been confirmed, so I'd take with a grain of salt. But if true, there's going to be a lot of grumpy Marvel Legends fans. :(

Time to resurrect this thread...

Have any of you guys found the Scarlet Witch? Wave 11 has been hitting around here, but I haven't seen her yet (or Ultron, Taskmaster, or HB Iron Man for that matter). except at a local comic shop (for $70, what a deal). I saw one for $35 Buy It Now + Free Shipping on ebay...seriously thinking about grabbing it.

Anyway, Logan and Original Thing are already warming the pegs around here. My Walmarts pretty much stopped getting Marvel Legends after the Series 9 fiasco (they got way, WAY too much of them), so I've been having alot more trouble than usual finding the rare figures. Anyone else notice that Series 9 was produced in much greater number than the other waves? Even the variants weren't that hard to come by. Series 10 came and went pretty quickly around here (finally found the Variant Cyclops and Angel last night at Target).

aharry
12-12-2005, 02:09 PM
Haven't seen Series 11, but the Walmart by me had alot of Series 12 figures. Was able to complete a set but I couldn't find any varients. The cardbacks only show pics of an unmasked Wolverine, a bald Bishop and a red Iron Fist. Not sure if, when or where the other varients are. I've read that Scarlet Witch figures have shown up at places like Target and such but that she was supposed to be cancelled. Maybe Toybiz changed their minds. I guess keep an eye out.

Hellboy
12-12-2005, 02:40 PM
I saw a Scarlet Witch figure that my friend found at Target last week and IMO it's probably the worst looking female ML figure to date. I wouldn't pay $2 for it and I'd wager if it wasn't for these being recalled/cancelled you'd see these warming pegs everywhere.

El Chuxter
12-12-2005, 02:58 PM
I heard that only the initial cases shipped with Scarlet Witch before they changed their minds and decided to improve the figure before re-releasing her in a later wave.

Darth Cruel
12-12-2005, 06:48 PM
I'm disappointed that I missed out on her. I did find the entire rest of the wave at TRU last Friday. I had to loot the overstock bins above the figures to find HBIM, Taskmaster, and Ultron. I really do hope I get ahold of one of the cancelled Scarlet Witches.

BlueSnags
12-13-2005, 03:50 AM
Believe it or not, I was able to grab a Scarlet Witch tonight at TRU :bandit: . Also picked up a Variant Logan, Hulk Buster Iron Man and a Taskmaster, so that leaves Ionic Wonder Man and Ultron that I'm still looking for.

The Scarlet Witch figure isn't too bad. My question is: Why is the figure one-per case, when Toy Biz knew what the demand would be for it, before it was decided the figure wasn't up to snuff and supposedly "cancelled"? Does anyone think the whole "cancellation" is just a marketing ploy, to make the figure more of a "chase" figure? Maybe I'm just being paranoid. Any thoughts?

What is the variant on Logan? And I wonder why it is not pictured on the cardback.

DC,

The Logan variant comes with a cowboy hat (notice the empty space in the upper-right corner in the non-variant package, that is where the hat goes) and is the "young" version (no gray in hair, face looks younger).

Wow, with variant Civilian Logan and variant Plant Clone Thingy Iron Fist, I've got my work cut out over the next couple of waves.

I couldn't care less about Bald Bishop. He's about as important to me as the variant Cable.

If any of you find Maestro from series 12, a piece of Apocalypse's arm is missing, like mine was. Here's what was posted on Toybiz's site:

It has been brought to our attention that the bonus piece that comes with Maestro Hulk is missing. The missing piece is a tube that connects Apocalypse’s left arm to his torso. If you have recently purchased a Maestro Hulk and are missing this tube, please contact our Customer Service department at 1-800-728-2018 for replacement. We are sorry for the inconvenience.


Thought this would help in case this happens to anyone and comes by here before seeing the Toybiz site.

Hey I found the Apocalypse Series fully stocked at target today! They didnt have Variant Wolverine or Bishop though. Somebody must have snagged them right before I got there. Its an awesome wave!

I got X23 and Bishop. Those Apocalypse pack-ins are a GREAT gimmick. X23 turned out a little different from her prototype -not as sharp but still a good figure. Bishop is awesome too.

My Manwolf and Venom figures arrived today from an e-bay auction (hey, 14 bucks for both of them, i can't complain!) and i'm pretty happy. Manwolf is pretty good in the sculpt sense and the "howling" sound is kinda nifty. although, i'll admit, i didn't read much about him in the comics, so i don't get the whole spandex ready for diving action suit he's wearing. It wouldn't leave much to the imagination, if you read me. ;)

On the other hand, Venom is AWESOME. He's a very large figure and the way his chest is sculpted and how downright ghoulish and scary he looks is pretty awesome. His tongue sticking hella far out was a nice touch too. Go get these figs!! They ahve the cool new blue packaging too!! :crazed:

So, I've had Hulkbuster Ironman on my desk for a few days now. I like it a lot -- it's my current favorite desktop play item, but I just noticed the hinge on the back of his helmet for the first time. Duh!

It seems that what was perceived to be the X3 line is really a replacement for the X-Men Classics line.

http://toynewsi.com/news.php?catid=23&itemid=8557

A few of the figures in it are the same description as on the huge upcoming list JJB posted awhile back. Like, ruby quartz armor Cyclops. While I think it looks a bit goofy, those Wolverines I imagine would look alot more interesting to kids than the goofy tiger-striped Wolvie of the last X-Men line.

I really like how they repainted ML Storm into the X-Men:TAS costume, missing the center lightning bolt though. She comes with a clear stand though so it's not too bad that she doesn't come with the twister display base. I'll definitely have to pick that up. I'm wondering if the rest of the figures said to be for X3 are going to really be this line, including the Sentinel?

That could mean they're going to repaint the Sentinel to match the X-Men:TAS. :D

I'm really surprised they're repainting Gambit and Archangel and reusing them.

I think Storm wore that costume in the comic. She was changing details about every issue for a while. It's rather sad that we're getting Disco Cyclops and S&M Wolvie, when we need a %&^*in' Jubilee already!

Apparently it's under heavy debate with some people on wether or not she wore white in the comics or if the white was just from highlight-overdose to make black leather look "shiny." She definitely wore it in the animated series though.

According to JJB's list:


X-Men 3 Action Figures Asst 1
Stealth Wolverine
Ninja Strike Wolverine
Ruby Quartz Armor Cycle
Stealth Beast
Magneto
Gambit
Archangel
Storm
Stealth Beast - variant
***Assortment may vary from carton to carton

X-Men 3 Action Figures Asst 2
Air Strike Wolverine - 3 pcs
Angel - 2 pcs
Stealth Cyclops - 2 pcs
Tech Gear Beast - 2 pcs
Juggernaut - 2 pcs
Phoenix - 1 pc

X-Men 3 Action Figures Asst 3
Colossus
Nightcrawler
Iceman
Rogue
Avalanche
Sabretooth
***Assortment may vary from carton to carton

X-Men 3 - 14" Sentinel <classic sentinel with retooled head

Hopefully we'll get some stuff we need like yellow costume Jean Gray, a new Rogue, new Magneto and eventually a Jubilee.

Okay, all joking about the character aside and moving on to some serious discussion, don't Jubilee and Shadowcat both warrant great action figures based upon their status as "unofficial Wolverine sidekicks" before, say, Cyclops in shiny red armor? We have about 4,856,923 Wolverines already, with more on the way, and nary a sidekick in sight. Unless you count the incredibly manly Generation X figure that purports to be Jubilee.

There was one from the Robot Mashers X-Men (or some cockamamie line like that) who was actually a decent figure, but (aside from the surprisingly decent head) bore no resemblance to any Jubilee from any comic or cartoon. I've considered picking up an extra to customize into a real Jubilee figure.

Of course, Shadowcat would be a much tougher custom, since no proper Shadowcat figure would be without Lockheed, who'd be a major pain in the butt.

Did anybody elseh ear about this REALLY bad news? Somebody on the Spawn boards posted some "gossip" they heard at the Hong Kong toy fair about HASBRO getting the ML line in 07?

http://board.spawn.com/forums/showthread.php?t=260775

the gist:


This is the big news at the Hong Kong Toy Fair now on and which I have heard from sources that are there now.

Toy Biz Worldwide as many of you know is NOT owned by Marvel but a seperate company and that they are actually a licensee of Marvel.

In a shocking turn of events, it seems Marvel has now given the master toy license to HASBRO as of 2007.

That means this is the last year Toy Biz will be producing Marvel toys. How this affects new Marvel Legends and Ghost Rider figures for 2007 is yet to be determined.

I will report back again when I hear more!


This is not as shocking as it first sounds - especially to people who read the press release in 2001 where it states that Marvel has only granted the license for 5 1/2 years which makes this year the last year for Toy Biz:

2. Who is Toy Biz?

Toy Biz is the in-house toy division of Marvel Enterprises, Inc.

3. Who is Toy Biz Worldwide?

Marvel character-related toy product lines are manufactured and sold by Toy Biz Worldwide Ltd, under license from Marvel Characters Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Marvel Enterprises Inc. Toy Biz, a division of Marvel Enterprises Inc., is the sales representative for Toy Biz Worldwide.


I don't expect anything concrete to emerge until the NY Toyfair in Feb, but if this is true, i guess i won't be collecting anymore ML figures, ever. :twisted:

Actually the truth is that while Hasbro will be taking over production of the line, they will not be designing anything. The "ToyBiz WorldWide" logo you see on the figures in silver is the company with the factory that actually makes the figures, Hasbro will be taking this over. ToyBiz will still be designing and sculpting the actual figures.

well, it's official: Haslbeh now has the Marvel license.


Marvel Drops Toy Biz and Switches to Hasbro
Source: Hasbro, Inc. January 9, 2006

Hasbro, Inc. and Marvel Entertainment, Inc., announced today a license under which Marvel has granted Hasbro toy and game rights to its renowned superhero universe that includes franchises such as Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, X-Men and Captain America. Through the agreement, Hasbro has obtained the rights to develop products based on Marvel's globally-known universe of over 5,000 characters in a wide range of toy and game categories -- including action figures, role play and preschool toys, board games and puzzles. The agreement covers both the "classic" comic book look of the characters as well as product lines inspired by Marvel-themed movies.

Marvel terminated its licensing agreement with Toy Biz Worldwide Ltd. on December 31, 2005, one year earlier than the license's scheduled termination date. In 2006, Marvel-branded action figures and other toys formerly produced by Toy Biz Worldwide will be produced by Marvel.

The five-year license with Hasbro gives the company the rights to bring Marvel Entertainment-based toy products to retail beginning January 1, 2007. Hasbro's first full line of products based on Marvel properties is expected to center on Ghost Rider and the highly-anticipated movie event, Spider-Man 3, scheduled for release on May 4, 2007. Marvel has also agreed to provide services to Hasbro in connection with the licensed toys. The license guarantees Marvel $205 million in royalty and service fee payments, of which $70 million would be payable on the theatrical release of Spider-Man 3 and $35 million upon the theatrical release of Spider-Man 4. In addition, the license can be extended past the five year term, dependent on the number of other entertainment properties released during that timeframe.

"We are particularly pleased with this arrangement as it fits strategically into our plan to continually develop our home-grown core brands while aligning ourselves selectively with the best licenses in the business," Alfred J. Verrecchia, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hasbro, Inc. said.

"Hasbro's multi-year agreement with Marvel provides Hasbro with proven properties in categories where we have been long-time industry leaders," said Brian Goldner, Hasbro's President, U.S. Toy Segment. "Marvel's properties are a 'who's-who' in children's and family entertainment and provide Hasbro with many exciting opportunities in the years ahead."

Tim Rothwell, Worldwide President, Consumer Media Group, Marvel Entertainment, added, "Hasbro is renowned in the toy arena. It supports its key brands with heavy promotional and advertising campaigns and their innovation provides consumers with an unmatched retail experience. We believe aligning with Hasbro as our master toy and game partner sets the stage for us to further extend the global and domestic reach and image of the overall Marvel brand."

Bruno Maglione, President, Marvel International, commented, "As we continue the process of developing our brands through a heightened mix of coordinated multi-media and product activity it was important to engage with a partner who understands how to leverage and optimize that sort of evergreen franchise approach. Hasbro brings that experience to the table, and with it, the ability and reach to execute globally. It's a perfect match."

David Hargreaves, Chief Financial Officer of Hasbro, Inc, said, "We are very pleased with this deal as it provides Hasbro with incremental revenues in high margin categories and allows us to maintain an appropriate balance in our portfolio of core brands and strategic licenses."

Juli Boylan, Sr. Vice President, Sony Pictures Consumer Products, the limited partner in Spider-Man Merchandising LP, stated, "We are thrilled to have Hasbro develop toys and games for 'Spider-Man 3'. We are very proud of the 'Spider-Man' film franchise and feel Hasbro will play a pivotal role in its continued success."

The license is conditioned on its clearance under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976.

acting on a tip from a TRU employee, i was there bright and early this morning to get some stuff. I scored the wave 11 Logan (non variant- the variant isn't al that great, IMHO) and SCARLETT WITCH. Hell, i dont' even care much for her, but i couldn't resist picking her up on account of rarity/legend of her figure. No dice on wave 12 yet, but hopefully soon.

also found the new X-men figures at my wally world today and i must say that i'm not impressed, at all. It's like they're trying another X-Men classics line, but hey, pssst, toybiz, we don't want a STEALTH NINJA Wolverine, alright? They looked like complete crap. but hey, to each their own. :crazed:

FINALLY caught up with the Apoclaypse series at a Dayton Area TRU. They had a few whole sets (minus variants) left after i got done with them. I'm not building apocalypse (MOC guy), so i didn't get Iron fist, but got an extra Maestro to open. But, all of these figures are pretty bada--. Sad to know that once Hasbleh takes over, it's pretty much over. However, i have a gut feeling that by the end of the year, we'll get a seperate apocalypse figure as TB is releasing a single Sentinel figure in August. I just can't afford that much $$ to go MOC AND open a set. still, they look great! :thumbsup:

There has already been a separate carded Apocalypse figure. He was in Series 7. Unless of course you mean a separate version of the one you can build in this newest wave...

I won all of the Apocalypse series including variants, sans Maestro Hulk on eBay. I got them in two autions. Total for all ten $150. Yeah, I know a bit steep, but my fiancee is the one who wanted them and was willing to go that high on the auctions. Still it's not too bad a price, considering we have each variation. Just waiting for Maestro Hulk. We'll get two of him and end up having 2 Apocalypses!

Here are the next three waves (if they happen to come out-crosses fingers-sorry if this has already been posted, but I'm not reading all of the pages to find out):
Series 13:
Unmasked Green Goblin (Plus Variant)
Lady Death Strike

So if ToyBiz (the Marvel affiliate) is still designing figures and Hasbro is taking over production and distribution from ToyBiz International (the other company that shares a name with the Marvel affiliate), why wouldn't these be made? I can see delayed, which I can live with, but not completely cancelled.

Some really iffy choices in these waves. One X-Woman in three waves? It's nice to see a full wave without a Wolvie or Iron Man rehash, even if an Abomination re-release is included in the wave. Hopefully this isn't a gestalt wave, because I'll be p***ed if I have to buy a second Abomination to get someone's arm.

Got a question for you guys:

Which X-23 is the variant? Saw a grip of ML Series 12 at KB this morning. Looked like they had a crapload of the purple X-23 and only one Black one. However, on the back, the one pictured is the Black version (with the purple version nowhere to be seen). Ended up buying one of both versions (wanted both versions anyway). Anyone know the definitive answer to this?

El Chuxter
01-19-2006, 04:20 PM
I believe the really hard to find X-23 variant would be the one that doesn't suck. She's so rare, in fact, that she doesn't exist!

I still wish they'd put her in a wave where I didn't feel compelled to get them all to build a cool giant figure.

Actually, it's the purple one. The variants are:

Unmasked Wolverine
White Sasquatch
Purple X-23
Bald Bishop
Red Iron Fist
And the production variant of Maestro with or without Apoc. arm tube.

The black X-23 is probably bought more 'cause the less you can see of her makes the figure better. :p

The whole thing is kind of weird. At the Toy Biz Web site it says, "Toy Biz, a division of Marvel Enterprises, Inc." and the Web site is registered to Marvel as well. That suggests to me that Toy Biz is a part of Marvel Enterprises, and so Marvel is pretty much looking to hand their toy making business over to Hasbro.

What I'm wondering is, after Hasbro takes over the gig, what happens to ToyBiz? Anyone think maybe Marvel's gonna dump it?

edit: OK. I just read something that sort of makes sense. Marvel owns "Toy Biz" which is the sales representative for "Toy Biz Worldwide." The company Toy Biz Worldwide is privately owned and based in Hong Kong. So, Marvel (Toy Biz) designs the toys, and then Toy Biz Worldwide produces and sells them under license from Marvel.

Stupidly complicated, but what it sounds like, is that Marvel had found a way to design the product, and then someone else paid them for a chance to make and sell it.

JediTricks
01-22-2006, 04:06 AM
Ok, I did a little more digging... Toy Biz Worldwide is a separate firm created in 2001 after yet another restructuring at Marvel. Back in the '90s after Marvel bought Toy Biz, and later shenanigans ensued in order to restructure the corporation and Toy Biz Worldwide was formed and bought Marvel, this was then reversed a few years ago, and when they split off the factory that was manufacturing for Toy Biz licensed the name to create a separate Toy Biz Worldwide (we'll call them TBW for short). Toy Biz became only a distribution partner for TBW who was the designer and manufacturer of the partnership, and now that Marvel has severed ties with TBW, they're losing all OEM manufacturing which I believe includes moldmaking and may or may not include sculpting and part of the design work.

Does that answer your questions? No? Well, that's because nobody outside Hasbro & Marvel actually know and aren't saying. My best guess is Hasbro won't want someone else doing the bulk of the designing and sculpting though.

I'm consulting the brain trust here because I know exactly nothing about Marvel Legends figures.

My roommate was awesome enough to help me expand my clone army to admirable size, and I'm helping him with his ML collection in turn. He recently grabbed all of the Sentinel series and upon putting them together has discovered that he really likes the Sentinel. He likes it so much, he wants to look into getting three (because apparently Magneto needs one to fight by himself?). Well, I know you can find assembled Sentinels on eBay, and I know some e-tailers sell assembled Sentinels from time to time, but I just saw the previous post about the 14" Roto Sentinel. Is this the same thing as the BAF Sentinel or is it just a comparably sized figure? That's the first time I've seen the roto figure, but if it is the same (or more or less visually similar to the original fourteen incher), I get the feeling my clone army is going to have to make room for the Sentinel army, especially for that pre order price.

Thanks in advance.

There are pics of waves 13-14 here (http://www.marveltoys.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=1242).

My thoughts, in short, first on the Mojo wave. I'm pleased to be getting a Mojo, and especially in the proper scale. He didn't jump out as a gestalt because he's a lot smaller than the other gestalt characters they've tackled, but he'd be just slightly too big to be a regular Legend.

Psylocke and Power Man look mega-wicked. I'm surprised they're not the figures with variants. Ninja Assassin Psylocke and 1990s-Present Luke Cage would be simple variants.

I could care less about Zemo, Falcon, and Iron Man. Is there any Iron Man costume they've not done? All we need is drunk Tony Stark, and they'll have to start making up new Iron Men for the line. But since ToyBiz was considerate enough to pack in different X-Babies with the variants, there's no way I can pass on them.

The other wave, well, let's talk basic figures first. All look quite good, though Blackheart seems like he should be quite a bit bigger. Loki wouldn't be my personal top choice, but the booger's definitely a Marvel Legend.

Hopefully Pyro will have his flamethrowers by the time this wave hits.

I'm a little ticked about Abomination, as I understand he's a straight reissue of the Hulk Classics figure. And I was one of the few people lucky enough to find that one. I may get the variant, since I'll have all but one piece of the gestalt anyway.

And that gestalt. . . . Man. Onslaught? Onslaught?!?!? WTF? What possessed them to produce a gestalt of a giant character who actually chased me (and many, many others) away from Marvel Comics altogether for the better part of a decade? The character had a nice design, but the entire storyline was insulting to fans and characters alike. Why not Uatu, Fin Fang Foom, proper-scale Goliath, even a giant Stan Lee figure? This is probably ToyBiz's worst character choice, even topping X23 on the useless scale.

But, again, I'll have most of the POS. I'll likely have him lying on the ground and all my variant and repaint X-Men, Avengers, and Fantastic Four characters posed like they're all taking a dump on him.

Beast
02-02-2006, 05:43 PM
It's especially an odd choice to go with that version of Onslaught, considering people prefer the Magnetoesque 'Phase II' version of Onslaught. As for a Build-A-Figure of Giant Man/Goliath, that's going to be the BAF and BAF variant for the Wal-Mart exclusive series of Marvel Legends. :)

02-02-2006, 05:52 PM
I didn't even remember there were two "phases" of Onslaught. I've done my best to block the memory that it even happened. That is, I think, the worst Marvel storyline ever. Yes, I am counting Age of Apocalypse (I know many of you liked it, but you know I've expressed my disdain for it before), New FF vs the original FF (and Thing's disfiguration), the short-lived Jubilee ongoing POS, and everything that Rob Liefeld ever worked on.

Beast
02-03-2006, 12:06 PM
Well, Mojo created the X-Babies. The first ones were just de-aged X-Men. He regressed them and then aged them up again, so he could take control of them. The ratings were rather high on that appearance of the X-Babies, so he created Mojoverse Constructs of the X-Men in Baby/Toddler forms. They appeared a few times, and Mojo later added the Mighty 'Vengers and AoA X-Babies to the mix. :)

Actually the X-Babies are rather popular with some X-Men fans.
And Mojo is quite a bit smaller than Galactus, Sentinel, and Onslaught, so that's probably why they are tossing in the X-Babies and Mighty 'Vengers.

*Sob*

It's just not fair! My roommate's BAF sentinel (mentioned in a previous post) convinced me to get my own. Having done so, I needed to collect the small number of X-Men characters I know anything about (never owned a Marvel figure in my life, read maybe two or three single comic issuess, used to watch the X-Men cartoon casually in the nineties), so he had someone to fight in display.

So having read up a little on the various characters, I figured I would have to get Giant Man if they ever came out with one, just because I pictured the diorama in my head of BAF Sentinel staring down my X-Men only to feel a tap on his shoulder. I figured that would be something happening a year or more from now at best.

My roommate is going to fall over laughing when he hears Giant Man is already showing up in stores. I just want to cry. I'm going to be a pauper inside of a month.

Ok, according to info I'm reading elsewhere... the case that turned up in Kansas was a complete fluke. They are unfinished figures that were slated for a meeting, that turned up on the pegs. That's why the comics pictured with the figures don't match the ones that are supposed to come with them. They won't be available until later this year. Appearantly Toy Biz is a bit ****ed, as they planned to debut the figures at Toy Fair this weekend. :)

Jesse Falcon from Toy Biz said that Onslaught was chosen as it's his favorite villain, and this one will 'transform' from this version into the crab version. Sadly the Phase 1 'Magnetoesque' look couldn't be worked into the design. There is a classic Toy Biz figure close to scale.

As for the 'Henchmen' that were originally planned for the series, they weren't cost-effective. It would have doubled the ammount of plastic each figure uses. Plus it would have been unfair to the collectors, who wanted to army build. He did say that they're looking at a way to offer the Henchmen later, which is cool for collectors. :)

Here's Jesse Falcon's post about the Wal-Mart series:

Ok I wanted to check with our Hong Kong office before I posted this because I saw the images of the Walmart wave last night on line and the person who posted states that they were found in Kansas. Apparently there was a sales meeting where 1 pallet (or) 5 of what's referred to as a PDQ were rushed to make this sales meeting and were not intended to be turned around to be sold at retail! I'm Not sure why this was done but that very limited amount of product is now at retail in that one state and probably at that one store.

What's really frustrating is that this lines not in production yet and that product that was rushed together ONLY for that sales meeting and does not represent the final working product. The deco, articulation, and function and fit of the product is NOT finished.

You will all see the FINAL product and much more on Sunday at Toy Fair 2006.

Best,

I didn't even remember there were two "phases" of Onslaught. I've done my best to block the memory that it even happened. That is, I think, the worst Marvel storyline ever. Yes, I am counting Age of Apocalypse (I know many of you liked it, but you know I've expressed my disdain for it before), New FF vs the original FF (and Thing's disfiguration), the short-lived Jubilee ongoing POS, and everything that Rob Liefeld ever worked on.

Don't forget the Spider-Clone storyline of the mid-90s. Just horrible...got to be the worst of all time!!!

Thanks for posting all the pics and news JJB! Pretty interesting stuff.

Apparently Scarlett Witch was impossible to find, as she was cancelled at the last moment or something due to quality issues. I found her once, and she goes for a buttload on eBay. There's supposed to be a "corrected" one coming in the future.

Kind of scary that the guy in charge of these toys picks Onslaught as his favorite villain. What a load of butt.

Well, the line is already being distributed by Hasbro. But Hasbro doesn't take over the line totally until 2007. So we'll see Wave 13 and 14, as planned. Wave 15 however is up in the air. It may go through a number of changes, due to having Hasbro involved now. From everything we're hearing though, Hasbro is going to be keeping what works. :)

The 2-packs are looking better and better! Most notably the Wolverine vs. Sabretooth 2-pack. We finally get a new tiger-stripe Wolverine to replace the series 3 one, this is based off of the ML12 Wolvie. Just hope they work some more on the head. Sabretooth looks awesome.

Now I have to decide wether or not to get Onslaught, he just looks freaking awesome like that. It was easier to say no when he was uglier but I am already getting half the wave- Green Gobby, Deathstrike and Pyro...

Spider-Man Classics has a couple cool new figures using the latest Venom sculpt- clear plastic Venom AND a mix of Carnage and Venom :eek:

Other stuff that looks great are the 12" figures both the ML and Spider-Man Classics, but I doubt I'll be getting those. SMC 12" are too hard to find here and the ML 12" will probably be out of my price range.

Sadly only one figure coming out for the X-Men line that I'm interested, well two but one's a variant of the first. Iceman. This is the way he should've been done in ML8! The uniced Bobby Drake looks good as well.
I was hoping this line would give us a new Cyclops, Jean Gray and Rogue but doesn't look like it. Granted, it looks like a Rogue is in there but she's got that goofy armor stuff.

Actually that 'Goofy Armor' Rogue is a character acurate costume. :)

11) After the X-Treme X-Men left the mansion, they came up with a set of new costumes, mainly in red and black. Like the rest of his team, Rogue has a set of red sunglasses with special properties – they function as the group’s communication and scanning device. However, Rogue’s glasses had an extra purpose; at the time, she was randomly manifesting abilities absorbed in the past and she feared to injure others with Cyclops’ uncontrollable optic beam.

Saw the Apocalypse series at Target this morning. What is up with the paint quality on these things? I know it's always been hit or miss with the Marvel Legends line, but this was bad. I only want three of them, Bishop and X-23 I don't care about, or Wolverine who I might have bought anyway, but the paint was so sloppy. I passed on Iron Fist (the one I want the most) because his tattoo was so sloppy. I passed on Sasquatch because what little paint he has on his face was all weird.

I did grab Maestro... which is a silly figure that doesn't look much like the Maestro in the comic book, but I'm always up for another silly version of the Hulk. I'm a little disappointed by how, for lack of a better word, un-sturdy this figure is. Very light and hollow feeling, and the knee joints are pretty shoddy. The funny hat does fit well or stay on. The overall articulation just isn't that great. maybe I'm spoiled -- some of the other "big" figures have been so awesome, but this one just seems to be lacking.

According to Action-Figure.Com, Jesse Falcon said that it will likely continue. And that there are early plans to possibly include some X-Men 3 designed figures in next years Hasbro Marvel Legends. I don't think Hasbro is stupid enough to quit what works. In fact, given how they run Star Wars they might even do the line better. :)

It'll be interesting to see how this turns out. It could either go well where Hasbro treats the line and it's customers with respect and goes with quality figures and decent character line-ups. Or, Hasbro could completely screw us over and give them gummy plastic, horrid paint apps, crappy character choices, a thousand rehashes and horrible distribution. Not a comforting 50/50 situation.

I am not too worried about not getting some of the variants. The K-Marts near me are very good at stocking shelves with a wave three months after it is supposed to be gone and I very frequently get the variants that way. A few of the older ones that I missed out on, I was actually able to make a deal with one of the vendors at F-n-S to trade some older, more popular figures like Blade and Red Skull that I got a couple extras of for. I am getting Stealth Iron Man and Doombot for them.

At first I took a chance on one of the mystery figures and got the Yellow Daredevil. I was surprised by how detailed and complicated these little things are, so I've picked up a few more. I'd read about the codes somewhere else, and yeah, it much nicer knowing what's in there.

The mystery figures have been pretty hard to find around me. They seem to go quickly, and I haven't seen any of the series two figures at retail.

So far I've picked up series one: Iron Man (he's OK, but not great), Doc Ock with lab coat (also cool, but some of his parts fit a little weird), Daredevil yellow version (very nice), and Storm white version (also good... if I see the other version I'll grab it for you.)

As much as I've been a huge (Japanese) candy toy addict for a long time, these things are just as fun.

Heh. That's weird. Those are the exact same mystery figures that I found. Doc Ock w/ Lab Coat, Daredevil (Yellow), and Storm (White). Weird that it seems we found the exact same case pack-out. I think they're pretty damn cool myself, and I'm almost tempted to break my 'X-Men and Related Characters Only' rule. Especially since the collectible cards are a further incentive. As for series II, it's just hittng from what I've seen on Ebay. Youbuynow.com has them in for $6.75 a piece, but none of the variants. :)

I just picked up Toyfare #105. This issue sheds a little light on a question I had: Just what waves are left before Hasbro takes over? Well it appears that the ToyBiz incarnation of the line will continue as follows:

Series 13
Onslaught series we all know about already.

Series 14 (Which I had heard was cancelled or would be Hasbro) build-a-character Mojo

Psylock
Longshot
Power Man
Baron Zemo
Falcon
First Appearance Iron Man

Series 15 (which I had heard was cancelled or would be Hasbro) build-a-acharacter M.O.D.O.K.

Thor Buster Iron Man
Beta Ray Bill (My own #1 dream-come-true)
Wasp
Spider-Woman
Captain Marvel
Moon Knight

Wal-Mart Exclusive Series (which I thought was the bad-guy series that is coming out next) build-a-character Giant Man

Warbird (From the looks of the pic, a very nice-looking female figure)
Sentry (two versions)
Thor redeaux
Ant Man
Havok
Kitty Pride
A.O.A. Weapon X (two Versions)
A.O.A. Sabertooth

The two figures with two versions are variants, but will be packed as commonly as the regular figures. In fact, Toyfare states that one of the variant versions (they did not say which one) will be required to build Giant Man.

There will also be a line called "Face-off" which will be two-packs including:

Series 1:

Hulk vs Leader (there will be a Leader variant. The regular will be the butt-looking head and the variant will be the long head)
Daredevil vs Kingpin
Captain America vs Red Skull (there will be a Strucker variant of Red SKull)

Series 2:

Iron Man vs Mandarin
Punisher vs Jigsaw
Wolverine vs Sabertooth

No variants were revealed

Also there will be a four-pack of "Young Avengers" including:

Iron Lad (Young Iron Man)
Patriot (Young Captain America Or Super Patriot, looks more like Super Patriot, maybe even "Bucky-ish, but is probably supposed to be young Captain America)
Asgardian (Young Thor-type)
Hulkling (why not call it Hulkster or Hulkamaniac)

there are also some very nice figures coming out in the "Marvel-Legends-by-other-names" lines including:

Amazing Spider-Man line:

Shocker
Mad Jack
Toxin
Electro

And the X-Men line:

Rogue (and variant)
Avalanche (looks awesome)
Ultimate Sabertooth (face looks too cartoonish...the rest of the figure looks cool)
Ultimate Nightcrawler (looks cool)
Ice-Man (Ice off!)
Ice-Man (Ice-on!)
Ultimate Ice-Man

No mention is made as to whether the three Ice-Mans are variant or intended to be individual figures.

Almost everything looks awesome, though!

And, last but not least. My second favorite news next to the Beta Ray Bill figure...


INTRODUCING: MARVEL LEGENDS ICONS! Marvel Legends figures at twice the size!

Series 1 (June)
Wolverine (of course, MAN I am sick of Wolverine!)
Captain America
Iron Man

Series 2 (August)
Hulk
Venom
Spider-Man

Series 3 (September)
Lizard
Thing
Beast

So, there is a BUNCH of ToyBiz Marvel Legends left! And Toyfare says there are more pictures at www.wizarduniverse.com

I just checked Wizard's site. The pics they have there that are not in toyfare are:

From the Face-Off two-packs:

Unmasked Daredevil variant
Unmasked Captain America variant
Flat-Headed Hulk variant
Black-Suited and angry-faced Kingpin

And the Marvel Monsters four-pack we all know about with Dracula, Zombie, Frankenstien, and Werewolf (by Night)

It appears that each of the characters in the two-packs will have variants. I hope we still only have to buy two of each two-pack to get all four figures.

House of M was an altered reality caused by Scarlet Witch going crazy.

I started typing a bunch of stuff out, but I figured I could throw a link instead. :)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_M

Tony Stark was a sapien in the HoM reality who had some actual rights, due to his business savvy. He also regularly took part in the Sapien Games, which was mecha fights against old decomissioned Sentinels. He eventually took on the mantle of Iron Man, to deal with the injustices dealt to Sapiens.

Hulk had went into seclusion in the Australian Outback, and actually posessed something much closer to Banner's intelligence. He was living with a bunch of Aboriginies in the Outback, until some high ranking officers of the House of M decided to start the culling of humans in Australia.

The It was Ben Grimm, the only survivor of the group that was exposed to the group who was exposed to Cosmic Rays. He was more or less enslaved by Doom as his servent and member of the Fearsome Four, but eventually turned on him and joined the Sapien League, the resistance against the House of M.

The Inhuman Torch was Kristoff Von Doom. It was basically Dr. Doom's version of the Human Torch. He was a flaming demonic creature with wings that was part of his Fearsome Four. Along with Doom, Invincible Woman (Valeria Von Doom), and The It (Ben Grimm).

Actually, House of M somewhat fixed Iceman. He only thought he was depowered, because he lost his perma-ice form. Emma noted a mental block in place when he was about to be killed, and unlocked his mutation again. He can now shift between human and organic ice again, but he's having some control issues. And Jubilee got her most mature adult scene ever, as a depowered mutant in Generation M. :)

The Spider-Armor serves an important purpose, and is only going to be around for this particular storyline. It's basically Tony Stark trying to buy Peter Parker's support and take on the role of his mentor.

Alpha Flight isn't all dead. Mark Millar is supposedly going to be releasing a Alpha Flight series that spirals out of Civil War. The only ones who probably died of the group with the new members, cause everyone hated them.

Joss Whedon's Astonishing X-Men has been surprisingly good so far. It's certainly much more entertaining than Grant Morrison's stuff. He at least seems to grasp the characters fairly well. Even though his second story arc was pretty terrible.

And actually, Onslaught was a pretty big sales success. It did better than most books at the time. The storyline actually didn't hit the brick wall and crash and burn until near the end. That and Heroes Reborn was a terrible idea, which is why they returned the characters to the real 616 soon afterwards. :)

I was referring to the Heroes Reborn series, which I don't recall doing very well. (And I actually found Astonishing X-Men to be entertaining until I actually saw Whedon at Comic-Con, and his inherent douchiness ruined the book for me.)

I note you didn't refute the deaths of the New Warriors, and any company who can kill Speedball shouldn't stay in business because they lack all reason and accountability.

All as a lead-in to "Civil War" starring Bucky, I suppose. :rolleyes:

I suppose my occasional problem with Marvel is that they allow a status quo to build up over several years, then someone realizes there's a status quo and says, "Oh ****! We allowed a status quo to build up!" And then they go ape trying to shake everything up in as many ways as possible in as short a time as possible, so that a new status quo can emerge from the ashes. Or to take an established but neglected character completely out of any sort of context and try to start a new book that only shares the name with said character (this happened with both Bishop and Jubilee). Or to trash a writer's entire body of work simply because a new writer comes onboard (AKA "No, that wasn't really Magneto who levelled New York" Syndrome). Or simply missing blatantly obvious opportunities for character development because the writer takes a completely one-dimensional look at the story. (My favorite instance, involving my favorite X-Girl in Uncanny a couple of years ago: a character, who happens to share her real name and code name with an Old Testament festival celebrating God's gifts to humanity is killed on a cross and resurrected with the blood of an angel, and it goes nowhere?. WTF?)

Nothing against individual books, but it's poor storytelling on the whole to allow so many titles to stagnate in terms of character development or major plot points for a while, then try to flip everything upside down in one or two massive crossovers. It's just a poor decision at the top levels.

Don't worry. I often hate DC for the same reason. It seems all too often that the writers and editors see their job as a means to a paycheck and don't approach the characters or readers with the respect they both deserve.

Beast
03-29-2006, 04:27 PM
No new writer came on board, Marvel just realized they couldn't allow Magneto who had grown to be a fairly well developed and gray character with a lot of depth, become a raving lunatic cardboard nazi stereotype who marched people into ovens and ever be painted as anything more than a cartoon after that. The only way around it was to make Xorneto not the one true Magneto. It's worked out fairly well frankly, though Chuck Austen bungled the whole Xorn aspect of the story. :p

Why not, though? Guy has to be at least 70. His actions could have easily been the result of dementia. I thought it was a compelling story arc, with one of the most powerful entities on Earth, who has long kept his powers somewhat in check, flipping his gourd and becoming exactly what he hates the most. And it did an excellent job of hammering home to the reader that, no matter how nicely and neatly such stories have unfolded in the past, this is what it would really be like if an insane mutant with such abilities existed.

And now everything that Morrison did has been undone, aside from the fact that Jean is still dead. (At least she was the last time I checked.) It's a shame, too, since he's the only X-Writer to hold a candle to Claremont or Byrne or Hama IMHO, because those four had the gonads to break the supposed rules.

Just kidding. I, myself am a huge anti-fan of anything DC with the shining exception of Batman. Batman is probably my 5th or 6th favorite character of all super heroes. You have to look beyond the true losers like Speedball to find my second favorite DC character.

And speaking of Speedball. Some of the previous posts seam to almost LIKE that character. Did they do something for him to make him look like something more than a mutated "Whammo" product?

Edit - I actually stopped reading comics after they brought Elektra back to life after she died saving DD from Bullseye when Typhoid Mary and her goon buddy (crap, I forgot who it was) beat him nearly to death and left him in the ravine. It was such a waste of a good bawl-fest, that I felt violated.

Magneto's actually only around 40 or so now. He got de-aged into a baby during the 70's, and then re-aged into his prime. So he'd be around 40 now, given Marvel's sliding timescale. And I guess we'll agree to disagree, but I hated Morrison's run for the exact reason you seem to like it. The characters weren't true to form, and their personalities and dialogue was almost interchangable.

And no, not everything Morrison did has been undone. People always beat the dead horse about it, but for the most part, most of Morrison's changes are still there. Beast is still a feline (no matter how much most folks hate it), Xavier's still outted as a mutant, Scott and Emma still together, Genosha is still destroyed, etc. The only things that have really been undone was the uniforms (good), Xorn being Magneto (good), and the insane mutant population (good).

I've seen Weapon X (non-variant), Cap'n Brit'n, Warbird, and Havok once each, and a total of three Sabretooths (who looks like possibly the worst ML figure ever). These were all at one store. No sign of the boxed sets or the rumored store display. Anyone know what's going on with these?

I'm speaking from a place of ignorance, but I still suspect there has to be a blue pallette or two hidden in the backrooms of some Wal Marts here. My friend used to work there and described pallettes that never move because no one wants to put out the product in front of them.

I know of one sighting here in Tallahassee. Everything but Havok from the Wal-Mart wave. That's the only one I've heard of. They also had all of the Face Offs with their variants.

And just a general FYI: reports are that Series 13 has started hitting in western parts of the US.

I just traveled from Billings Montana to Victorville CA...I hit up 7 or 8 Wal-Mart Supercenters along I94 (or was it I90) and the I15 between the two places...every one of them was lousy with the wave. I picked up a variant weapon X as I only ever saw one of those(and no Sentry variants at all)...but I am guessing that between all the stores...I left 100 of each on the pegs. They all had huge displays with like 10-20 of each figure (except the variants of course, my hatred of scalpers is becoming psychotic).

Edit - Does anyone know whick of the variants is required to build Giant-Man? I didn't check.

All the local WMs have two Wonder Men and an AOA Sabretooth. One store looks like they're doing inventory for what must be the twelth time in as many months. The other has had these figures in a cart with a lot of other toys that have been moved around in a two-aisle area for over a week. Luckily, this second store did a huge display of Spider-Man toys, so I can easily find crappy armored Spider-Men and crappy inaccurate Hydro-Men. (Hobgoblin and Spider-Hulk? Sheah, right.)

I've been passing on the Super Hero Showdown figures, but I'm about to have a new addiction it seems. I only just now saw the Toy Fair pictures for this line. Colossus, Beast, Jim Lee Cyclops, Magneto, Juggernaut, and Venom look awesome.

I may even have to do something I always said I would never do and buy Fantastic Four figures (nothing against them, just not my thing). Reed and Sue join the already released Thing and Torch, and they also have Silver Surfer coming out. Since events have forced me (I.e. willpower has failed me) to get all of the parts of the Galactus BAF, they'll all look pretty nice together.

So that means I still have to get Thing and Spider Man, Wolverine and Hulk, Torch, and I might as well get Captain America, Iron Man, and Doc Ock. Of course then I wouldn't hate getting black Spider Man. Joy and rapture. Too bad my willpower isn't up to curing an addiction.

Well, I don't know if my area is any indication, but things are looking up slightly here. Toys R Us has had ML-13 two weeks in a row, and this most recent time they had three or four of each figure. These toys never show up in these numbers in my area, so I have to assume they are showing up elsewhere in numbers at least as great.

Also, I have actually seen Giant Man figures with my own eyes. A local Wal-Mart had (past tense) Sabertooth and Ant Man, and actually had a fair amount of Face-Offs, though no Captain America. I've seen reports that someone's Wal-Mart somewhere only just put out their blue palette, which doesn't surprise me. I don't remember if it was here or on another site that I mentioned my old roommate once worked at Wal-Mart and he said palettes would go for months without being touched simply because they were blocked by other palettes no one wanted to work on.

I am crossing my fingers though for TRU to come through with another shipment of Series 13 this week like they have both of the previous weeks. Marvel Legends figures have been selling like mad. Well, Marvel Legends figures that aren't Professor X or Dr. Strange.

Edit: June 21. Well, I wasn't going to go out today. Tonight's my night off, and I was just going to fall onto the couch and collect body odors until showering to go into work Thursday night. But today was the absolute earliest day I could ship Mystique out to a collector on another site, and she deserved to get Mystique the absolute earliest day I could ship. So I dragged myself to Pak Mail and mailed Mystique. Wal-Mart is right next to Pak Mail, so I walked in. Just reward for my diligence: I saw every single Wal-Mart wave figure including variants. I scored Havok for the roommate and Jesus Sentry for myself. I had to silently say goodbye to Warbird, Kitty, and Captain Britain since I'm broke. My Giant Man is now complete above the waste crunch and has a leg I can attach when I get Warbird.

Just a guess, from what I've read from Jesse on the Fwooshnet forums, Toybiz doesn't seem inclined to lessen the significance of their chase figures by releasing them again, so I would be shocked and maybe even a little miffed on behalf of all those people whose bright, shiney Dark Phoenix is that much less cool if Toybiz recolored that body as Dark Phoenix again. I'm actually kind of surprised they even released Phoenix again without a drastic paint difference like with Storm.

I could be wrong, though, about Toybiz's stance on that issue, and I'm certainly only guessing either way that it won't happen. Otherwise, all bets are off when Hasbro enters the equation.

And I'll just attach this as an edit to this post:

The new Showdown figures have been found at retail. http://www.joecustoms.com/board/showthread.php?tid=38376

This is awesome news! I think I've already mentioned that I'm absolutely sold on the new figures and have to go back and collect the old ones. I already have regular Spider-Man, black costume Spider-Man and Thing and should be getting Doc Ock and Torch in a trade in the future.

Now that it is completely confirmed, the Ultimate Iron man looks kind of weak, but I'll probably still look to pick him up if not just because I have been itching to make an Iron man armory diorama. I figure Emma Frost would be the Astonishing version since she wears a considerable amount of clothing as far as that character is concerned. Now it's even more important to get a new Cyclops. Series 9 Cyke was crap, and we really could use an Astonishing version. I'm surprised they didn't go ahead and make Astonishing Beast instead of movie Beast. I'm not too keen on movie Beast anyway. Hercules is a no go for me. I detest Thor, and Hercules is one of the few characters I have cited as being worse than Thor.

I'm gonna wait until we see production versions to pass judgement, right now though I have to say it's about what I expected from Hasbro. Bad paint quality, horrible facial expressions and inconsistent anatomy detailing. Movie Beast looks like the best one of the bunch but what you can see of his eyes makes it look like they were a last minute addition. Overall, they just look immensely cheap.

I'm surprised they're going to start out with a BAF figure, you'd think they would start out with a regular line so that they could concentrate more on the actual figures.

I am hopeful though that this does well for them and convinces them to make 6" SA Star Wars figures.

I'm one of those guys, the guys who think the Hulk should be much bigger than his canon size. So as large as the Face-off Hulk is (and as much as he may match up with the size of the recent Abomination), I may be inclined to grab Icons Hulk to display with my 6" scale Avengers.

I'm really excited about the second series of hasbro Marvel Legends. The pictures of the second series have been awesome.

- She-Hulk
She Hulk almost looks just like the Marvel Select version. It's an attractive female Marvel Legend. Unfortunately they'll probably ugly her up by it's actual release as with the X-Men Rogue coming up.

- Ultimate Wolverine
They really should have done something with his claws. The display figure had serious Bent Claw Syndrome.

- Thor
Looks cool but I hate Thor.

- X3 Dark Phoenix
Not fond of the movie figures. The only movie figure that gets no complaint from me is Blade.

- Storm (comic book version)
I didn't see pictures.

- Magneto as Xorn
I didn't see pictures.

- Blob-Build-A-Figure
He's pretty imposing, but he's not a pretty sight. Big and ugly.

- Quicksilver
I'll get him, but I really couldn't care much less about the character.

- Yellowjacket
One more outfit for Mr. Pym.

- Astonishing Cyclops
- Danger
It's theorized this will be a Face-off pack. Astonishing Cyclops makes me happy, but I'm not fond of Danger.

There was also talk of a Rachel Summers Marvel Girl. I like the modern, green miniskirt version, so I hope it's that one.

Cool stuff though.

Not only are they reusing parts from an earlier figure (very common with Marvel legends) but Quicksilver was supposed to come out with Series 14 or 15 (ninety percent sure it's fifteen), so he was originally slated for a 2006 release, and I'm sure they just grabbed the already completed figure to add to the lineup.

Local Target had a random Iceman from wave 3 X3 today. It was the regular iceman, not the human or Ultimate variant. I have the set on pre-order, but I picked it up anyway so if i get variants, i can be content. My buddy found the regular Iceman out in Cali and there are reports of it elsewhere. Here is the supposed case ratio:
1x Rogue
1x Avalanche
2x Sabertooth
2x Nightcrawler
3x Iceman
3x Colossus

For the first time in several waves, I only want one of the ML figures from this series. Of course, I want Psylocke, so I am not overwhelmed with confidence I can find her.

And for the first time ever, I want several of the XMC figures. I'm looking for regular Iceman for myself and variants for a guy on line who helped me out with Warbird, and I'm looking for Petey, Rogue (with jacket and the rumored yellow and green running change), and maybe Avalanche for a friend.

Of course when ML-15 comes out, I might look into ordering a case since I want every figure but Beta Ray Bill. It's a shame I don't want to build M.O.D.O.K. though.

LTBasker
09-08-2006, 12:58 AM
I'm actually relieved I only want one (well two) from the new ML wave, I hope it won't be too hard to find a couple Psylockes and her variant. While I don't know much about her and nothing about her variant, they both look cool. Oddly, no one has found a Psylocke variant. For ML15 I'll only need Wasp with red costume and maybe Thor-buster Ironman, and unless Hasbro improves movie Beast I won't be getting any from their first wave.

Then with the current Spider-Man wave I only need 2 of the clear Venom and with XMC I just need two Colossuses, 2 regular Icemans and 2 Bobby Drakes. 2 of the Rogues if they release the green/brown version too, which they said will only happen if the assortment does well enough.

It's a nice break to only need a handful of figures after all these BAF waves that I still need to complete most of, though fortunately my Wal-Mart got in a ton of the Giant Man wave (still has a bunch including variants) so that's long done.

http://photos.actionfigs.com/data/1704/NAT_7648.JPG

Unfortunately, that still doesn't clear up the question. I still have plenty of doubt that they're making an Icons movie Juggernaut. The problem is that the Icons line is more or less a production version of your industry standard 'two-up' prototype model. Often times at cons and industry shows the two-ups are shown in place of the scaled down prototypes, particularly when the model is not so far along in development. There have been many times when various entire ML assortments have been publicly shown only in the two-up form. In fact, I believe the sheer coolness of the two-up models was the sole inspiration for the Icons line.
Now then, if there were other movie X-Men figures that looked like they might be in development for the Icons line I might be inclined to believe that they were going ahead with Juggernaut. Until we hear it direct from Hasbro though, I'm willing to bet that Icons will be sticking with the comic versions of Marvel's most iconic characters for the time being. I'd even go so far as to say that if they were to decide on inserting movie versions of the characters that they'd more than likely do someone like Wolverine, Cyclops or Magneto first. Of course, I guess we won't know either way until the thing hits store shelves.

I remember reading the comic book and liking it well enough. A new ML figure would be cool.

Other than the ad in some of the earliest ROM comics, I've never seen the toy. I didn't say it wasn't cool. It just must not have caught on too well. Funny, the comic outlasted GIJoe and Transformers, IIRC. I would not mind at all seeing him come back and bashing some sense into all the superheroes after this "Civil War" nonsense is over. That could actually get me to buy a Marvel Comic again.

BTW, scored all three Face Off variants tonight. $15 each is pricey for Silver Age Leader, Matt Murdoch, and Baron Whosit, but I really wanted all three. And the dark-suit Kingpin and Steve Rogers were nicer than I expected. Can't say I'm too excited about the 23rd ML Hulk in my collection.

I was at TRU this morning when they opened and headed back to the action figure aisle. I noticed they had a few random new X-Men figures on the pegs, but not nearly enough to be a full case. So, I start kinda nonchalantly checking those storage bins over the pegs and sure enough, bam, the rest of the case! FINALLY picked up a mint Avalanche and Rogue. Awesome!

on a side note, I did find an Avalanche last week at Target, but it looked like somebody was trying to steal it cos the back of the card was torn to hell. If any openers are interested and want it, let me know via PM. I'll be out of town/PC-less till next week, so i'll answer PM's when I can. First come first serve!
