Hasbro Legends-palooza!

So No Tornato

Recommended Posts

Went to Target with wife and kids today. The action figure aisle was completely wiped-out - they obviously hadn't restocked yet from the Holidays.


Anyway, on the empty pegs, I noticed a tag that read: "MH Legends - Figures". My gut told me that the "H" was askew, and stood for "Hasbro". My intuition also told me that since they hadn't restocked then maybe - maybe there was an outside chance.


I grabbed a store employee, who zapped the zebra-stripe on the tag with his l'il stun-gun thingee. After an audible "beep", he looks at me and says "Yeah, there's one more case in the back." I asked if he could get it, 'cause I wanted the whole thing. (BTW, I like to contrast this with the surly response I generally get from TRU in the same situation...)


Anyway, after about 2 minutes, he comes out with a big box, and BINGO! One entire case of Marvel Legends Wave 1, courtesy of HASBRO!


I bought the whole case. No, I didn't scalp them, I immediately sold half to my Legends-Collecting partner at cost.


I haven't yet opened them, but just by looking at them in the package I can tell that they're different, and by different I mean "Good". The joints and seams all look nice and tight, the paint apps are good (IMO, I know some disagree...), and they just look sturdier. I had a lot of problems with the last few waves of TOY-BIZ - loose joints, stuck joints, half-detached feet, too-soft plastic, poor paint apps, etc. If MARVEL has solved this by switching production to HASBRO, then I'm a believer! So long, TOY-BIZ!!!


Also, as another post-er pointed out, it looks like HASBRO has solved the distribution problems, as these seem to be popping up everywhere.


Oh, I almost forgot (if anybody cares): 2 of each fig per pack, 1 Ironman with helmet, 1 Ironman without helmet, and neither Hulk had the silver paint-apps on the left arm (which was the only bummer, aside from the ugly Emma, which I still think was a missed opportunity). Also, the "H" stood for "Heroes"...but I'm glad I went with my hunch!
