Marvel Legends Hits and Misses

Recommended Posts

OK... as ML collectors we love these figures. We know the characters, we read the books and know the stories yadda yadda yadda. But what about our wives, gfs, kids, family, friends, etc.? When you have guests over and they see your ML collection...

 

Which figures get the most positive response? And which ones freak them out? :)

 

Oddly enough, Falcon has gotten the most positive response at my home. My wife loves the colors and costume design. Mojo must remain hidden though.

The lil kids that come over occasionally all gravitate towards ML4 Beast--for some odd reason.

My youngest step-son still hankers for ML3 Magneto--and again, no idea why.

 

MODOK makes the kids laugh though.

 

Other than that, anyone else seeing them usually comments: "Gosh........................you have so MANY!!"

 

LOL!

Juggernaut and Colossus... I think those two are the most impressive

 

and of course the big BAFs; Galactus, Sentinel, Apocalypse, and Giant Man

The one that turns the most heads in my collection (aside from the stealth Iron Man chase) is the Sentinal BAF. It still amazes me how brilliant that figure is. On top of that, the first wave Captain America, Hulk-Buster Iron Man and (not a legend but the XMC) Cyclops in the Jim Lee traditional blue costume with yellow straps, visor, boots, gloves and belts gain the most attention.

The fugly of the collection is Dr. Strange who cannot be posed with his cape and of course the Emma Frost.

I had lots and lots of shelves full of ml, smc, xmc, f4, select, icons, etc... a new-wants-to-start-collecting Marvel Legends guy was looking at everything, oohing and ahhing and the one thing that he really pointed out amongst the clutter of hundreds of figures on my shelf was this, he said "Woa The Venom is AWESOME!" (something like that) to this:

BAF Sentinel and Gaint Man fighting always get a second look.

 

My girlfriend really likes the Hawkeye I got recently and is kind of sad he's in the back. She's not really happy with Ghost Rider and Jack O'Lantern staring at her though.

My collection doesn't ever get heavily scrutinized by friends, they'll just look around for a minute, shake their heads, and tell me how twisted I am for being a 29 year old guy with a toy and comic collection that rivals most stores. :(
