I picked up the Deadpool, and have a Captain America on the way through a trade. I've seen all of these figs. in the store and have been very picky. I like the look of the brown costume wolverine, green goblin, iron fist, and green hulk but at $8 a head, I'm gonna have to add them slowly to my collection. This is the first and second waves of these figs and just like the 25th joes, I'm sure they will make the necessary adjustments on these figs to appease the fans. I'm excited about the secret wars 2-packs and the giant class figures that they are doing soon!

I thnik the line is great for just starting, as each of the waves seems to be better than the last. They already admitted that the Punisher was poorly done and have a new one in wave 3 or 4. As far as Stealth and Regular Iron Man being the same mold welcome to a huge chunk of the Joe line. They are focusing on B list characters and it is nice to have a Marvel line that has a decent possibility for playsets and dios. Give it some time and I think it will shine. Plus how many other lines let fans choose the make-up of an entire wave (and don't say hall of heroes because all it was was figures that had already been released).

I finally saw some marvel and wolverine movie figs at the store today. I was disappointed with the high price but I got 5 figures. They are not as good as joes but they are still pretty cool. I won't get all of them, but I will probably end up with several.

The only problem I have with the MU line is the hips. The t-bar is plastic and that just screams "future leg breakage" to me. I wasn't a fan of the looks of the hip joints on the Movie line at first, but after playing with them, they do feel a lot more sturdy and that calms my fears for those toys.
The biggest problem with the Movie line is one figure that I'm surprised no one has bitched about....Gambit. Sure he looks great but how do you make a figure come with a staff and not give him rotating wrists to hold the staff with two hands!? Even when the jacket sleeves are huge and could engulf the hands completely! Then there's his ankles....you have a boot with details to make it look segmentated and you couldn't think of a way to add a joint into that detail?
At least neither of these toy lines look like the Wolverine and the X-Men line though

Yes, I was HIGHLY disappointed when my shipment from BBTS arrived. I saw my bill at the bottom of the box and my heart sank when I was reminded how much I spent on the whole set of wave 1 and 2.
I gave them to my 5 year old, but at least he's excited.

I've a friend who's collected Marvel Legends from the beginning who's a big Marvel guy and he said he plans to just pick and choose what he wants, whereas he got all the Marvel Legends. Part of it is a space issue but part of it also has to do with you're paying just a little less for a whole lot less.
I have a Deadpool I bought for my Iron Grenadiers and it looks nice but its legs are ridiculously loose. Some of the Wolverines I looked at looked like they'd been painted by five year olds. I'm also not big on the selection of characters they came up with for the first two waves.

Man, I am with you guys.
I bought Captain America for 8.44 at Wal-Mart last night.
Suffice it to say, he is the only one I wanted.
The rest can warm pegs for all I care.
For 9.99-10.99, I am gonna get those awesome DC figures that are 6-7 inches tall. More figure for my money.
This new Marvel-Hasbro line is just terrible.

they just dont look right and they are not made like the 25th joes. so it is a big pass for me. they look very cheap.

I have absolutely 0 interest in that line. Glad Legends went down so I can concentrate on DC Classics.
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...

Initially I was going to collect these but after seeing them in person I changed my mind. I only got yellow woverine which is a beautiful figure and bullseye. I will probably get spiderman since he is my favorite marvel hero,I also think captain america is a great looking figure but I can't bring myself to getting it because it would be pointless to buy him and not buy the rest, I saw 10 captain americas today and passed. I might buy these if they go on clerance,or should I say when they go on clerance since there are so many every where I go.
