Marvel Legend showdown pics

They do look nice, but I'm not starting my collection over again in a different scale. And since stores around here have them for the same price as ML, I think they're a rip off.

 

It also kind of bugs me that green trunks Namor and Moleman made it into that line but not ML.

Gonna decide in person... But doubtful...

I'm not really into starting a different toy line with the same characters just for a different scale....even so when they are more or less going for the same price as ML with less stuff.

These look better than the first two waves. I'm getting almost all of them. I just hope they make a Red Skull.

 

I know Hasbro is going to keep the bigger Marvel Legends line going, once they take over, but will they continue the Showdown line going, as well?

If it has been a big money maker for Toybiz they will probably keep it going, if not it might end up having the same problems like the 3 3/4” GI Joe line.

You are right Mysterio, yesterday (15/2/06) ML showdown just arrived in Malaysia.

I also going to collect the whole X-Men coz is just nice with Sentinels(ML12) and

Fantastic Four with Galactus(ML9).By the way, ML 6" series I don't have Colossus,

Sabretooth, Green Phoniex and Toad and ML Showdown sure can help.

Can't wait for rest.

I love the majority of these figures. Colossus, Cyclops, Green Goblin, Venom are up there as some of my favorites (not that I won't get them all) but honestly, did we need another version of Ghost Rider? Toy Biz did that in the ML line, too! How unnecessary. Give the space to a new character.

 

And I know it might be tough, but it would have been nice if Juggernaut and Magneto had removable helmets. Juggernaut's head looks a bit awkward on that body. And isn't that red part around Magneto's neck supposed to be purple? Will we have to repaint that?

 

And why are Reed and Sue in two different color schemes?! Who needs that? Is Sue a variant? Because the variants in this line are like the old ML variants. I have never seen a single one on the shelves. So are there variants of both Reed and Sue in black/blue and white/blue? We all want to complete our SHS F4 team, but not in different costumes! Consistency!

 

Ultimately, these figures range from excellent to poor. Some really astounding figures and some unnecessary disappointments. Let's hope at least a couple of the bad things change to good, before each series is released.
