I've been a supporter of the MU line from the beginning, but there are definitely some valid complaints with the line. I'd like to think that the lack of stands/accessories are due to licensing costs, but the paint apps and lack of quality of the Secret War packs is disheartening. I still love the character choices and will continue to pick and choose the best options available, but I hope Hasbro can turn the qc around and keep this line going.

I guess what it really boils down to for me is I already have all my essential Marvel characters in the 6" scale. I do think the 3 3/4" concept is cool but there is just too much going against them to warrant me re-purchasing them all. Besides they look silly displayed against my DC Classics...they all need to be the same scale.

Of course, I'll read all of them once all of the CPs get released.

I loved the Marvel Legends line when it came out - absolutely loved it - but they were absolute pieces of garbage. Out of the first wave, parts started falling off of Toad five minutes out of the package, Hulk lost his arm after two days on my dresser and my Captain America was missing the white paint apps on his chest and forehead. I bought at least 120 of these figures and I have maybe two dozen left. The rest are a pile of parts on a shelf above the washing machine.
The Marvel Universe line, for all its flaws, is a huge improvement. I wish they had tried a little harder on the SDCC sets and I wouldn't mind metal t-bars, figure stands or some different webs for Spider-Man, but so far it's been a pretty good set of toys.

I'll say it.
I think the MU line is a big let-down. Just like everything Marvel that Hasbro has put out. They killed Marvel Legends... THE MUST-HAVE collector line of the decade... and now their MU figures are weak junk compared to the other lines they produce.
I've only kept a handful after initially trying to collect them. I like Cap, and a few of the Wolverine Origins line, but the rest are crap, IMO.

I have decided to set up a home for wayward unwanted MU toys. After reading rants and complaints about the workmanship of the toy line I understand that many of you have loaded up on figures that disgust you so much that you will not be able to display and enjoy them. To that end I propose my closet as a hiding ground for these unwanted figures.
The figures will be lovingly cared for, hidden, and occasionally played with as need fits.
Send unwanted figures my way.
Donations to help support my MU holding center are also accepted.
