anyone got the new wave yet?
I just bought my first legends figure in pic related for like half off and I find her to be pretty neat. Are there any more lady legends worth picking up?
Also what do you guys do with the extra body part, I'm not planning on getting the rest of the figures to build ultron(she comes with his torso)
I love Anya, but I haven't seen her in the wild for a long time.
I like Spider-Woman but her paint apps can vary wildly from figure to figure for her. You can still find her in the wild if you try hard enough. Speaking of pegwarmers, both women in the Odin wave are nice. I also like Black Cat, but her elbows are limited and the heels can make her a bitch to stand.
Finally, I have to agree with the other anon about Anya and I'd like to add Mayday. The only thing I'd improve about them both is that they should have better ab joints.
Nah, they aren't that rare, it's just that Anya was a few waves back. Jessica Drew (Spider Woman), Mayday Parker and that other red Spider Woman are still in stores as well as Hellcat, Ms Marvel, Scarlet Witch, White Tiger, Misty Knight, Valkyrie, Thundra, Maria Hill (in the TRU agents 3-pack)
they always up the title characters, iron man, spider-man, someone had to finish the case off so.... spider-man. He does pull double duty as spider-man and spider-carnage, but still, they always double up on the main heroes.
Hasbro saved their usual retardation and poor decision making for the bigger "fuck you" of using the Hyperion body. Using such a god awful body as the base for such a highly desired figure is worse than anything DST fucked up on their Venom.
Is there a relevant space for Mangaverse Spider-man? Maybe some part swaps with thick gloves and sneakers?
Is Ultron worth getting? I've seen some people repaint him and the results don't look too bad...
I like it well enough, but I'd rather have the Revoltech.
That image you posted has a lot more going on than just paint, btw. There's some harsh lighting and a fair amount of contrast and saturation being pumped up.
Looks like a pretty easy custom actually. I believe there have been a few Spidey figures over the years that come with backpack accessories, and the hands and feet can be cannibalized from other figures (or sculpted, if you're up for that). Then it's a simple repaint and you're done.
Okay yeah I just checked it and it's from Comicave Studios.
What are some good villains, /toy/?
I only have Select Thanos and Ultron, and I desperately need more. I'm thinking about getting Grim Reaper, Ant-Man (For the tiny Yellow Jacket,) and Kraven.
I heard Grim Reaper is fantastic, but haven't got one myself. Same for Bulldozer and Batroc.
I like my Legends 3-Pack Ultron, Kraven, Rhino (BAF though), and Chameleon. Select Venom is amazing, but there's also a Legends Venom coming out soon. Legends Carnage is a 10/10 imo if you can get him for a fair price.
this is /toy/ there's a 3 day old john carpenter Thing thread still up, want to talk about that? bump it. Want to talk about something not star wars or mavel, make the thread. Also its right after christmas. Go post in a thread you want to post in?
Op here , i just picked up captain marvel and scarlet witch, and they are fantastic, i recommend them, white tiger and spiderman 2099, i started my collection with superior venom, white tiger and spidey 2099, they are great and they where quite cheap aswell. hope this helps
Walgreens exclusive Black Ant is fucking radical. So is Chameleon, Kraven, Grim Reaper, Rhino, and Batroc. This year has been a surprisingly great one for villain figures.
Shame there was no full Legends Yellowjacket. His design is fucking amazing.
>never bought Boomerang although I wanted him
>passed him up several times on sale
>three other Superior Foes coming out
>the pressure to put together the team
I found probably the last available Boomerang in my area. Cool figure, but I totally caved in.
Well, the ones you linked are more or less well known. I don't know much about Whirlwind though, other than I remember fighting him in the Captain America & The Avengers arcade cabinet.
Yeah it's odd they don't have their names listed. I'm guessing it's listed on the back of the box.
I think Onslaught looks awesome, but the only ones I want are Cottonmouth and Captain America. I have a bad feeling there will be a lot of shelfwarmers from this wave.
>What are some good villains, /toy/?
Ghost is pretty great.
>most of these figures are my first introduction to these characters
>I don't know much about Whirlwind though
Are you guys fucking serious? Whirlwind is a classic Avengers villain since the 60's and has been a member of the Masters of Evil on several occasions.
Sure is MCU casual in here.
Taskmaster is the only one out of the wave that I like. Was thinking of getting Cap but that face turned me off to him.
Oh well, got these from Frank & Son yesterday. IM's feet are dogshit but all I need is a stand to have him in a hovering pose.
To be fair, he's also been nothing but wallpaper in villain group shots for a long time too. Outside of a recurring role on EMH, there hasn't really been much done with him in the comics for a while now.
Have you not seen the pegs in stores lately? All of these C and D list characters are languishing terribly. There is only one character in this entire wave that anyone will know unless they read a lot of comics
Sharon Carter is in the movies, and Taskmaster is fairly popular, and racks up the gaming appearances these days, so three of them are totally fine as far as casual recognition goes.
Not my first, second, fifth, ninth or even 12th choice from the Serpent Society but a new villain is still a good villain. I'll try to buy him loose.
This guy is supposed to be 'Give me a red' Nuke's new identity isn't he? He's a loose buy..maybe even army build for a squad of goons.
Pass... I don't need werewolf Cap.
If that head scales with the old Toy Biz figure I'll headswap & hopefully I'll finally have a Taskmaster that looks like the Taskmaster. I might do the same with the Skull BAF head if it scales with the ML from a few years ago. Probably buy this one in box but I've zero interest in the UDON version.
Whats with that shitty expression? Holding off until I see more pics.
Loose buy. Can't wait to see how she looks with Hawkeye.
No interest in the BAF, I know this is 'Red Skull Onslaught' but I'm content with the older original Onslaught BAF.
>Sure is MCU casual in here.
You got that right bruddah!
>This guy is supposed to be 'Give me a red' Nuke's new identity isn't he? He's a loose buy..maybe even army build for a squad of goons.
No, it's D-Man after becoming Scourge of the Underworld in Brubaker's run.
If I could change one thing, I would've used Baron/Baroness Blood instead of Cottonmouth
do we know if Onslaught's head is swappable? I dont want Red Skull...unless there's a good helmet somewhere that fits him
90s Rogue is coming with the classic helm in a later wave.
Her face seems a bit too wide but man
>Dem fat thighs
I hope this slides over the Red Skull head and isn't just an alternate head. All the BAF alt parts they've done so far have required modification to not be as permanent as a standard BAF part.
Nah, I think the eyes look fine, it really is just too wide a head. Someone should just thin it a little but keep the eye size the same.
I'd imagine its able to be popped off easily enough, look at >>5377590.
Baron Blood or the Red Guardian would have been fucking awesome but I think BB would get the Morbius treatment in that he would only be able to be posed with his arms up or like Black Bolt and have the fins at awkward angles when down.
Yeah, it has me wondering how large the Red Skull head will be on normal bodies. I was thinking of maybe putting it on the Ghost Rider body but the flame neck killed that idea.
Anyone know when the Absorbing Man wave will be shipping from DST?
I think a body that you could place the Red Skull head is the General Hux figure from SWBS when that's out.
I was planning on doing it since the Mandroid wave Red Skull didn't satisfy me.
>Spider-Man and X-Men comics
Stay casual faggot
That Ghost Rider body is shared with comic Star-Lord and the Winter Soldier AIM body. The former is a bit too hard to get for those purposes, probably, but if you have an AIM guy laying around, that could work.
I'm really hoping this works though- would look fantastic if it scales. The First Order uniforms are even more Nazi than our actual Nazi figures.
Most of the BAFs are characters that would never get released otherwise. Maybe they could be released in special "Deluxe" style packages for a higher price, but there's no way we'd get stuff like the Mandroid, Old King Thor, or most of the other characters we've gotten through them. It's a great way to expand out and get characters who would never otherwise see the light of day.
The only way I'd be okay with giving them up is if they then bumped up the accessory count by a good amount on every figure, and they painted them in such a way that highlights the sculpt instead of burying it in a gloopy mess, but I don't think either of those things would happen.
heads up, I saw Wasp in clearance for ten bucks at Target
Hot damn, I might have to pick these up now that we're getting some Marvel horror types. Ghost Rider didn't look half-bad when I saw him at Target yesterday either.
Now if they'll just make a figure of Arcade...
So there has not been a single BAF character/offering that you have wanted... EVER?
>All the BAF alt parts they've done so far have required modification to not be as permanent as a standard BAF part
What are you talking about? Rhino's heads pop off no problem, and the only effort needed between Odin and Thor is maybe some heat at the bicep swivel.
This. Sometimes (though not often on Hasbro's part) it's also a way to get a huge figure out. And if we're going to be real even if they got rid of the BAFs there's no way Hasbro would lower the price, increase the amount of accessories, or increase the quality of the figures.
TOP 5 MARVEL LEGENDS
ANNO DOMINI 2015
1. Giant Man
> the big one from the box set, not the cringeworthy one
2. Brudda Voodoo
> effort and you don't mind the bucky cap
4. pizza spider guy
> looks like spidey
> nailed the character design hard
BOTTOM 5 MARVEL LEGENDS
> is this what the BAF has come to? he should be single carded. it's not shit monkey but after Hulkbuster you think they'd bring back size these assholes
> the face sculpt is shit
> it's a disappointment for so many reasons, mainly the rest of the wave was cheap shitty garbage
> it's not bad as a figure but it's so pricey compared to the $25 Select Hulkbuster which actually has gloss
3. Ultron Prime
> it looks like the character but they didn't even paint the back, they think we are suckers
> this is IMO but the character design is SHIT and the character was BUTCHERED in the movie
> this is the rock bottom for quality control in face sculpts IMO
> this thing just sucks, the articulation is bad, ab crunch sucks, and that yello bib...
All these Little Shits were lazy crap that shouldn't have even been made
> HELL CAT (she was the worst)
> marvel now iron man
> giant man
it is annoying but if you sell the figures on eBay quick you can recoup a lotta the cost. sadly this doesn't work so well for hulkbuster wave where every figure is complete shit
>uses hulkbuster as an example to shit on rhino
>shits on hulksbuter immediately after
>1. Giant Man
> the big one from the box set, not the cringeworthy one
What... why not get both, the fuck you on about?
I've ignored Marvel Legends for a long time, but I will definitely buying the majority of this wave as soon as they hit shelves. I don't even care about the BAF, but Cap and some of his key enemies are just too good to pass up.
Not sure about the shield girls though, Carter isn't that bad, but I really don't like Mockingbird's grandma-glasses style mask. Would've been nice if she came with an unmasked head as well or something.
I'll be honest, I'm not very familiar with Scourge, but I did plan on getting him just because I liked his look. But after hearing the suggestion that he could be used as a generic thug...I'm kind of tempted to grab a few of him. There just isn't enough 6" scale generic henchmen out there and he'd make a fine goon for heroes to beat on en-mass.
Well the Onslaught helmet that's also designed for the body seems to be no bigger then the average figure's body, and hell even in package the Red Skull head seems normal sized. I can't imagine it *not* being really easy to pop onto a basic figure and have it look good.
I was thinking of dropping it onto Chameleon myself, but it might even work on Scourge to make for a combat ready Red Skull (with appropriate henchmen).
>this is IMO but the character design is SHIT and the character was BUTCHERED in the movie
I agree movie Ultron's design wasn't great but this shouldn't be part of your reason for giving a toy you knew was based on that version of the character a low rating
>I'll be honest, I'm not very familiar with Scourge
Alright, since most of you mother fuckers dont seem to know Scourge is, im gonna school you.
>Frank Simpson was the disturbed son of a wealthy, abusive, alcoholic, upper-class woman in Ohio. Frank soon developed an unhealthy affection for his babysitter, the only real maternal figure in his life. The young woman, who was harboring feelings for his father Charles, capitalized on Frank's affection and talked the boy into killing his mother. Wolverine, who at that time was an operative for Weapon Plus had been sent to kidnap Frank. Logan showed up, dressed as a cop. He then stalked Charles Simpson and the babysitter, eventually shooting the girl with Charles' gun, after which Charles committed suicide. Wolverine then went to Frank's place and abducted him for Project: Homegrown.
>Years later, Frank was sent into the Vietnam War as a black-ops agent. Captured by the Viet Cong, Frank was severely tortured by Logan (who was posing as a Russian intelligence liaison), shattering Frank's still unbalanced mind. While torturing him,(even carving into his face the American flag that years later would become part of his super-powered personality), he implanted the phrase "No V.C.!" as a trigger word, along with the compulsion to kill gruesomely, in retaliation for the tortures suffered, anyone who uttered the words. He then allowed Frank to escape, testing his work with a village of peasants, who, seeing an American soldier, tried to soothe his anger and convince him to spare them, shouting the "No V.C.!" phrase, meaning that they weren't Viet Cong. Frank, in response to the trigger word, burnt the village to the ground killing every inhabitant. The experiment being a success, Logan was instated as the handler of the human weapon. Due to his trauma, Nuke often hallucinates that the enemies he is fighting are the Viet Cong.
>Norman Osborn adds a man named Scourge to his black ops team the Thunderbolts; Osborn seems to know who Scourge is, but does not reveal Scourge's identity. On their next mission, Osborn orders Yelena Belova to lead the current Thunderbolts to kill former Thunderbolt, Songbird. During the mission, Osborn promotes Scourge to field leader, and Belova is revealed to be the original Black Widow, Natasha Romanova in disguise. Scourge leads the team into capturing the Black Widow, Songbird, and Nick Fury  When Scourge orders the Thunderbolts to execute Songbird, Headsman turns on him and tries to kill him. Paladin helps out by shooting Scourge, and Ghost used an electro-convulsive shock to make Scourge forget what happened as Songbird and the Black Widow escape. When Osborn confronts Scourge about the botched mission, the man reveals himself to be Nuke, stating that his new name is not who he really is
>actually liking that Giant-Man
This is some shitty list, my man.
> im gonna school you
> is completely wrong
This isn't a figure of Scourge, who has a completely different costume, it's a figure of the second major incarnation of Scourge of the Underworld. D-Man became the SotU during the Brubaker run on Cap, not long before Steve died and Bucky became the new Cap.
Swing and a miss there buddy. Again I know pretty much nothing about this Scourge but I certainly know enough to realize there's about a half dozen guys in marvel who had that name at some point.
Ironically, I *did* know about about Demolition Man, I was all up in comics when that crazy super-wrestling arc stuff happened.
Still gonna use him as troop fodder though, even more-so actually learning about his convoluted history.
Everything in this box is interesting.
The figure looks cool, even if people don't like the Udon version, it is a fresh look.
The hood may have applications outside of this figure.
The arms and legs are a new sculpt that may translate well on other figures as parts swaps.
The accessories will go well with anything, and the sword can be a stand-in in the Star Wars Black Series line.
The Red Skull head appears to be in-scale with any regular body, so it may function well on a Star Wars General Hux body, thereby making a near-perfect Nazi Red Skull look with little effort.
You have to modify the ball joint of the head socket I get that to work and even then he will have a huge body and a small head. Might look cool on the revoltech body or the target 3 pack ultron body.
>target 3 pack ultron body
He looks great that way
This Gamora is pretty great.One of the better female figures they've produced.
