The Marvel Legends Line Thread

Post by GodzillaFreak99 »

Ah, a thread for the discussion of the Marvel Legends toy line. From Toybiz to Hasbro, to wishlists and speculation. Any and everything Marvel Legends you wish to discuss, this is the place for you.

Well this went nowhere, guess I'll help kick it back in action. Just got into the Legends line recently, they always looked pretty cool but they were too expensive for my tastes(There was LEGO to get after all). Only have a few figures, but I just got the Deluxe War Machine in from Amazon and it's great. This is the War Machine design I remember on the cards and the comics and the cartoons, it's pretty much my mental default and I'm so happy such a good representation of it exists in articulated form. I'll try and take some pictures tomorrow or Sunday.

Yeah, THIS thread kind of crashed and burned right off the bat.

The smudge on the helmet is unfortunate, but I didn't want to take nail polish remover to it because it's a paint smudge on another layer of paint. Anyone know how remove a splotch like that?

Is the green figure in the fourth photo supposed to be the Guardsman, one of many Iron Man imitators (the others being, of course, the Titanium Man, the Crimson Dynamo, the Cobalt Man, the Iron-Monger, etc.)?

It actually is Titanium Man, from whatever series this is:

I found it at the second-hand store without the blaster, leg articulation is a bit odd but otherwise he's quite nice.

Picked up the Morbius and Phage from the Venompool wave. They're both great imo. Phage in particular.

It's a big step up from figures like Lasher who just reuse that lame Superior Venom mold

Took the plunge today with Venompool wave Venom, FFH Mysterio, MCU Ultron, and Deadpool + Negasonic Teenage Warhead two pack. I've had a few Legends before (still have one: Mayday Parker) that were comic-themed, figured I'd get back into it for MCU stuff.

I think this line needs more monsters.
"Monsters are tragic beings. They are born too tall, too strong, too heavy. They are not evil by choice. That is their tragedy. They do not attack people because they want to, but because of their size and strength, mankind has no other choice but to defend himself. After several stories such as this, people end up having a kind of affection for the monsters. They end up caring about them." - Ishiro Honda

Curious, does anyone have a left leg of the Gamerverse Abomination they'd be willing to sell or trade? PM me if you are interested.
