I don't know if anyone's seen them, but JayC is at NYCC and has been tweeting pics from the Hasbro Party.

Check out that new ML packaging. Reminds me of the Black series packaging. Bet you we get Black Series style price hikes as well!

I'd pick up the Black Cat but then again, so will everyone else. I thing my favorite Spidey figure that I own is the Spidey from the Tobey movies so won't be needing another one of those. All the rest look like things I could live without.

I wouldn't say Marvel Universe, cause the last few waves looked awesome. I'd say 4" movie stuff looks like crap.. ;)

The Black Cat looks great. I'll probably hunt for Beetle and Carnage too. Yet, what happened to the Boomerang figure?

I was so excited for these, then I noticed the 19.99 SRP. That's a five buck per figure price hike. . . BEFORE tax. When these things start costing as much as the Blu-rays of the movie they're based on, it's time to reevaluate the hobby . . . again.

A-ha! My hunch was correct! I knew this would be the case when they saw that people are willing to pay that for the SW Black Line.

I would be even more bummed if I were not all but done with super hero figures. I won't waste time being angry. I have all Marvel AND DC A list, B list, and C list characters in their classics looks. There will ALWAYS be new costumes for these guys so you just have to know when to cut it off and say, "That's it". $20 per figure seems like a good place to do that.

It's been fun, 6" super heroes. Black Cat, I'll stick to my flawed Toy Biz version.

With that price tag, I'll only be picking up Black Cat. Then I'll turn around and sell the flaming Hulk BAF piece (yes, I know it's Ultimate Green Goblin).

I am guessing $25 at TOYSRUS...

The Legends look great! NOt surprised about the price hike. I think I may be a cherry picker from now on at that price.

I agree, they look great and it doesn't surprise me they're increasing the price I'm not happy about it but still when I lived overseas that's pretty much what I paid for them anyway. We knew this was coming with people buying the SW 6'' at the same price without batting an eye.

Other than price keeping people away in droves, another reason........availability, good luck even finding these anywhere but online.....don't know why they even keep teasing us w/new figs....there are still ML's Klaws & Constrictors galore on the pegs at TRU....the only place for disappointment & Marvel Legends.....I didn't mind paying extra for SW figs but they're out of their minds hiking up the price.....Posted Image

Well the idea with these lines(Spidey and Captain America legends) is that having a mixture of movie and comic figures and being tied to a movie retailers would order them and solve the availability issue. It worked with the Iron Man legends and it will most probably work with these ones I guess that's why they are bothering to show new product because they are confident with this new rebranding and tying legends to movies would solve the problem of stores not ordering the figures which was the reason mentioned for collectors not finding legends at retail.

Yep, I agree. This way should solve the lack of finding ML at retail!

Well if you look at it, Marvel's greatest strength is in theatres anyway. Taking advantage of that only makes since. And I've always preferred smaller waves with a unifying theme over random characters in an open ended line.

It does make sense. It's a smart move by Hasbro to keep comic-based MLs out there on the shelves. I imagine if these are anything like the huge amount of Superman Returns figures out there right now, they should be distributed pretty well, and somewhat decent to find.
Except Black Cat. No way anyone is finding Black Cat except the people who devote WAY too much time to it.

Well I worked out a deal with a buddy who is buying cases and will sell me the 6 figures w/out the BAF pieces for $17 a piece, so I will ensure a Black Cat. Probably gonna sell off Electro and Beetle.
