More and better pics of the Marvel Legends stuff here...
Man, the Hulk movie line doesn't look too good.
And the Emil Blonsky (at least I'm assuming it's Blonsky...it bears a resemblance to Tim Roth) figure looks orange.

Hasbro let slip some of their plans for the Wolverine movie in 2009.
http://forums.superherohype.com/showthread.php?t=296240During Toyfair, I represented my company to take some photos for personal retail uses. No - there was no Wolverine movie figures, so what am I babbling about?
We're a "pretty big" toy company, and we had two Hasbro Staff guiding us through our "tour"... During the Marvel Section, we asked if they knew anything else about the Marvel line apart from what was shown (And they were great items shown. If you haven't seen it, pop over to a fansite and have a look). I was told several things about Iron Man, Hulk and the general Marvel Line. But what I was surprised to be told was - details about the Wolverine line in 09! And I would have thought they wouldn't have had the lined planned - with the production JUST begginning - The following is the EXACT talk on the Wolverine Line only.
HR(Hasbro Representatives) : And yeah, we also have a line for the upcoming Wolverine Movie. It's slated to release around April, but with such a long time gap, I'm guessing there'll be some changes.
ME (Well, Me... ) : Do you know any specifics on this line? Will it be Marvel Legends scale? Or slightly larger like the Spiderman and Fantastic Four Movie Figures?
HR : They are going to fit into a "movie selection" (I'm presuming - bigger).
ME : Do you have any idea on which characters are planned to make a debut? or even anything on the movie itself?
HR : Sorry, we are not in the position to transfer any spoiler information, but we CAN give out some of our line's characters. Obviously, we have Wolverine - the Star character, and the co-stars, Sabertooth, Silver Fox and the Silver Samurai. We're also going to make figures of Gambit, Toad, The Blob, Stryker and Psylocke.
ME : Do you know anything else about this line?
HR : There isn't much that we ARE in the position to disclose, except that these figures are slated to hit around April next year - and that they are looking at the ML prices. However, with the world changing ever so fast, things might change - Afterall, we still do have one whole year to go.
I noticed that Marvel Toys and their awesome Legendary Comic Heroes line are conspicuously absent from Toy Fair. Does this mean bad news? say it ain't so! The line seemed like an instant sell-out at retail, near as I could tell. There are so many other awesome characters and properties to do!
I've read from a couple of sources that the line is cancelled after Wave 2.
Tommy, close your eyes.
...say it ain't so...
It's so. Jesse officially announced over at TNI that it's dead.
i would've bought those in a heartbeat.No Dart, Rapture, Barbaric or Mighty Man?
funny, i thought of him as a perfect fit for a BAF the other night...No Big Guy BAF?!
i would've bought almost all of those in a heartbeat as well. i have no love personally for the judge dredd comics, but the figures have been part of the highlights of both series, so i would've welcomed another to the fold.No Psi-Judge Anderson, Sin City Dwight or Miho, No Invincible, Allen the Alien or Atom Eve?!!!!
i've had a few "dream lineup" series mostly involving the savage dragon/invincible universes...
EDIT: does anyone know of a good type of action figure stand that fits ML/LCBH type foot holes? i'd like to be able to get dressed in the morning without knocking my figures off the top of my dresser...
