We're also getting a revamped Thanos, Paladin(!), a Now-Costume Spider-Woman and all sorts of other lovely stuff by the looks of it.

Now give me all your money.

Yeah, I'm sure they announced other stuff but my brain only has room for this right now.

Psylocke looks...well, she looks as good as she can given the engineering that Hasbro uses, but the ridiculous thong will never not look awful in combination with the cut of the female Legends figures' hips. The psychic weapon accessories are great, though.

I cannot believe they made 80s mohawk Storm and not the 70s or 90s versions that all the fanboys were begging for. I thought I was the only one who wanted this version of the character! The lightning effects are awesome, even if they look really weird on this particular outfit since Ororo only had powers for about the first week that she wore it.

I hope Wolverine comes with an alternate head, either the neutral one from the brown-suit figure or an unmasked one (not the awful modern one that they're recycling in the vintage series figure!) The angry face they showed off is great, but it'll really restrict what poses the figure will look good in. I definitely like the look of brown Wolverine more, but this one is good too and it's not like I can't own multiple figures of Canada's best superhero.

Overall, a really good start to the wave! I get the feeling all three of these will be pretty hard to find, so hopefully the rest of the wave is good enough that I can justify just buying a case and skipping retail entirely. Even though I'd then be stuck with a figure of that moron Apocalypse.

Is Steve Ditko, Stan Lee, John Romita Amazing Spider-man simply the best? Didn't that Spider-man single-handedly beat the Avengers, Fantastic Four, and X-men?

If you're going to post off-topic or very tenuously linked replies, stick to your own threads because other people have even less patience for it than I do and I'm certainly not going to stand in the way of banning another account.

Storm was due another decent figure -- the one in the Jubilee BAF wave seems to fetch stupid prices these days.

Other two are decent as well. :up:

Storm looks really good. Her Mohawk look is the definitive look for her, as far as I'm concerned. Or the black costume she had. I don't like that all silver/ white '90s outfit. Looks yuck.

Ugh. Just when I thought I was satisfied with my small Legends collection as is, Hasbro has to put out that yellow Wolverine. And I just got the brown one not that long ago!

My wallet hates me. And I'm buying that yellow Wolverine, if possible.

So, the rest of the X-Men wave has apparently been revealed... (http://marveltoynews.com/2018-marvel-legends-x-men-apocalypse-series-lineup-revealed/)

Multiple Man!




Now, it's quite a few months away and these leaked retailer listing lists seem to change as often as not. But if that's actually what we're getting, and the costume selection isn’t atrocious, I may indeed just preorder the set.

Pics from NYCC!

Madrox is the 90s X-Factor version with the skullcap (though spare head 2 has no cap). Was hoping for the mid 2000s X-Factor Investigations version, but hey ho.

Now that they've broken out the trenchcoat for Madrox and Spidey Noir I fully expect there'll be a Gambit round the corner.

I can't really say that I'm a big Madrox fan, so I'm not really bothered which outfit they give him as long as they make it look good. And they did, so I'm good with it.

Gladiator looks great, but I hope he's not just a one-off and that we get some more of the X-Men's "cosmic" acquaintances. There's a lot of fantastic costumes to choose from, between the Imperial Guard, the Starjammers and the other Shi'ar affiliated folks. Deathbird, Corsair and Binary would be awesome, at the very least. Brood aliens would be neat too, but I'm guessing that's a BAF-only proposition.

I feel bad for anyone who wants to army-build Madrox, though. He's almost certain to be one per case since he's packed with a Wolverine.

Some more bits of news:

Avengers Legends Black Knight, part of the Infinity War line (http://marveltoynews.com/2018-marvel-legends-avengers-black-knight-6-figure-revealed/). Looks pretty neat, but not a character I know much about.

Black Panther Legends at a toy show (http://marveltoynews.com/2018-marvel-legends-black-panther-movie-series-figures-photos/) and official photos (http://marveltoynews.com/marvel-legends-black-panther-movie-figures-hi-res-photos/). I think we can look forward to some of these warming shelves until the end of time.

And about 50 other things: http://news.toyark.com/2018/02/17/toy-fair-2018-official-hasbro-marvel-legends-figures-infinity-gauntlet-288917

Obviously the X-stuff is what I'm most interested in, but there's tons of other good stuff too. Sabertooth is everything I'd hoped for. Magneto looks really cool, but I've never seen that outfit before...apparently its the current one. Not super sold on motorcycle/wifebeater Logan. Bishop looks amazing. Sauron looks cool too, but unless I can find the BAF on its own for a decent price I won't get one. Hasbro seems to think that Deadpool is Spider-Man and people will buy a zillion variants of him, but I'm sure not going to. Honestly, I could see some of them stuff becoming awful shelfwarmers.

And what do 90s Bishop, Omega Red and Sauron have to do wih Deadpool, anyway? Cable and Domino in the current wave made sense, but this second wave feels like a weird half-and-half Deadpool and X-Men wave. I guess that's because Deadpool doesn't exactly have the most popular supporting cast, but I figured they would have stuck with Liefeldian X-Force stuff to fill the assortments instead of shoving in random X-dudes.

I'm also a bit puzzled with what they've stuffed in that Deadpool wave. Sauron looks cool, though.

Hasbro are really knocking it out of the park with their action figures. I like the look of all the 10th Anniversary Studios stuff. And Cloak & Dagger! Brilliant.
