    Cool

    Updated Post

    I know we have a large thread dedicated to Marvel Legends. Hell, I started it way back when. But I'm hoping that Staff won't mind if I make an off-shoot thread for just the Superhero Squad. After all, we have a whole section for the Star Wars Galactic Heroes. Also, major thanks to JT for deciding to put this in the GH section.

    Anyone else collecting this line? Other than the occassional X-Based Marvel Legend and the Marvel Figurine Collection, it's the only line that I've actually jumped in with both feet to collect them all. I just love these little guys, and the I'm trying to resist getting into the Star Wars version. Especially since they're finally doing Jar Jar.

    Note: Some of the later unconfirmed listings have been culled from the Wal-Mart Computers. Anything listed in the Undetermined sections is subject to change. I'll update this list regularly if there's enough interest.

    I've tried to use Hasbro's website for all links. But had to depend on BBTS and EE for some. And Marvelousnews.com for others. They're typically the most updated with pictures, even beyond Hasbro's own website.

    Got the Fantastic Four series from Hasbro.Com with the 25% Off/Free Shipping Code.

    The limited articulation of the figures, which I don't normally mind, suffers even more with this series. Thankfully it looks like that's not going to become a standard, since Series IV looks to have the stanadard articulation again. Not sure why they knocked it down in this series, whether it was due to sculptor prefrence, costing issues, or what.

    Mr. Fantastic/Super Skrull - Reed only has two points of articulation at the shoulders. The stretching arms appear to be made out of a slightly softer plastic, so that they can be bent a bit. Not sure if by design, or simply due to the materials. Like the rest of the FF figures in the series, Reed is in his Ultimate Fantastic Four costume. The Super Skrull however is the real star of the set. Modeled after the character's 616 appearance, the clear flames and invisible foot are nice touches. Unfortunatly, the figure suffers from only having waist articulation.

    Invisible Woman/Dr. Doom - Frankly, I have to say that this is the least "fun" of the four sets that were released. Much like Wasp, Sue has no articulation what so ever. However she's nicely sculpted and the quasi-invisible feet are a nice touch. You might want to be careful when picking her out... paint overspray can be a bit heavy and ruin the phasing effect. Though I hear that can be fixed. Dr. Doom is a really nice figure, but due to the cloak only features arm articulation. He thankfully is based off the character's 616 appearance.

    The Thing/Namor - A really nice set, but it suffers from a lot of problems. The biggest one being that both Thing and Namor feature almost no articulation what so ever. Both of them each get just a fairly pointless waist joint. Also, Ben's rocky hide is colored a light yellow-orange instead of the more accurate orange. Thankfully the articulation and coloring seems to be better on the Thing that comes with Mole Man next wave. Not a big fan that Hasbro went with Namor's black costume over his green fishscale speedo though.

    Human Torch/Silver Surfer - When it comes to articulation, this is the worst set of the bunch. Since neither of them have even one joint. However, I give it much higher marks because the figures are great. Johnny Storm has some really cool clear flames for a base and coming off his head and hands. And the Silver Surfer just is a really nice looking figure. I'm a bit disappointed that he wasn't Vac Metal like the Prototype, but he's still nice and shiny.

    I think the Danger Room would be a bigger seller.

    Spidey's probably a safe bet since it's got a big summer movie going right now, it's a bread-and-butter line in that way.

    The playset is a cute idea but seems kinda small.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    Black Cat is awesome, and I can't remember the last version of her that hasn't been pornstar proportioned.

    Mysterio looks good except he's dinky!

    I don't even know who Puma is but he looks lame.

    Venom with mouth closed looks even sillier, the tongue sticking out the side is a chuckle.

    I just wish they'd quit packing Spider-Man with everyone. It's a bit annoying after you've gotten a few sets of these to have a half dozen+ Spider-Man figures. It would be ok if they could do different comic costumes, but since they seem to still be basing the line on Spider-Man 3 and the video games... we keep getting new poses of the movie Spidey. Hell, do a few more Black Costume versions, since the only one in SHS so far is in wall-crawl pose.

    As for Puma: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puma_%28comics%29

    Looks like the Mega-Packs are starting to turn up.

    Someone in Phoenix, AZ found them in K-Mart.
