If you could only keep 12 of your Marvel Legends, who


Recommended Posts

12) Black Queen/Jean Grey- I just got this one for my birthday. I am not a huge fan of the Emma Frost body, but the face sculpt is dead- on for Dark Phoenix in her BQ persona, and the rose on the cape was just the needed touch to make this figure one of my favorites.


11) Ultimate F4 Johnny Storm- One of my favorite characters.


10) Captain Marvel-Another of my favorite characters.


9) Mr. Sinister- My second favorite villain, I am just amazed at his sculpt and the way the color application was done.


8) Ultimate X-men Ice-man: A much improved version than ML8 ICE-MAN, the grin on his face is very Bobby drake- This is one of my favorite characters. Plus I like beret.


7) Asgardian Thor: This is my favorite costume on Thor. The beard suits him, and has more detail than his other costumes. I also love his size. I wish the paint application was more detailed, but otherwise a great sculpt.



6) CAPTAIN AMERICA/face off series: I love this sculpt. to me it is the best representation of CAP to date!



5) Astonishing Cyclops: I am actually in the minority here, but I really like this figure. This is my favorite Cyclops uniform because it reflects Scott's serious nature, and it is a modern take on his original costume. I only wish he was taller in scale, and that Hasbro used gold paint instead of primary yellow for the piping. Cyclops is one of my favorite X-males.


4) Marvelgirl/Rachel Grey- say what you will, but I really love this sculpt. Even though the paint application is not the best, Rachel is one of my favorite characters, and this legend was one that was much anticipated.


3) ML8 Storm- One of my favorite characters, this sculpt is amazing in detail. I love the wrinkles, although I think the figure overall is too skinny, and Storm's head is too small. I would quickly replace this figure with a FA Storm, which would better compliment Dave Cockrum's design for Phoenix.


2) Phoenix/Jean Grey- This is my favorite Marvel character, and my favorite female legend. There are parts of the figure I don't like such as the duck feet and the fact that her boots are not sculpted on, just painted. I also hate the neck joint and the waist is too square, but overall it is still my favorite female figure.


1) Dark Phoenix- This figure is the most important to me because my partner gave this to me for Christmas 2 years ago, and because it was the hardest figure to find. He ended up having to order it on Ebay, and its my most treasured legend.

As I started buying ML because of the muties, I think taht all my choices are gonna be mutants:


ML Beast & ML Magneto, because they where my first two figs.


ML Storm because she's damn cool.


ML Pyro, it's a neat figure, I really like it.


ML Longshot, he's one of my favourites characters.


ML Psylocke, I wish she was taller, but it's a good scupt.


XMC Angel, I always liked Archangel much more.


HML Banshee, an average body, but I can't resist.


ML Nightcrawler, ML Colossus & ML Brown Wolverine to complete the Giant Sized set.


And the BAF Sentinel, it's just awesome!


Altough I'd miss very much Mr. Sinister, Cyclops, Phoenix...

this is such a good thread. 12 is a really weird number - but i'm sure almost all of us have over a ton of ML figures...so here's my list....



12) Invisible Woman (from FF Ronan line)- i love this figure. even if it does suffer from boring Hasbro paint application.

11) X-Treme Rogue - i don't love this figure too much but it's good and i wouldn't want my collection to be without a Rogue.

10) Cannonball - he's got one of the best looking faces, and even though it's a repaint it works SO WELL.

9) Hawkeye - i love this figure. shut up. He's awesome.

8) Rachel Grey - this sculpt is awesome, AND it's modeled after one of my favorite issues of x-men.

7) Asgardian - i love this character and i LOVE this figure.

6) Spiderwoman - Jessica Drew. This figure is just real great. i love it.

5) Havok - my favorite male sculpt and one of the coolest characters.

4) Dr Doom (from the FF Ronan line) - my favorite villain, it's an awesome sculpt even IF the paint application isn't the best.

3) Ms Marvel - i really like that sculpt, the body just works real well.

2) Phoenix - one of my favorite characters and favorite figures.

1) Astonishing Wolverine - my favorite ML figure. my favorite Marvel character. Best sculpt, articulation, etc.


ugh, this list was so hard for me to complete! i wasn't happy with my final decision - but i think i wouldn't be happy unless i could keep like....one figure of every character. other figures i'd want to keep are: Astonishing Cyclops, She-Hulk, Cable (yellow & blue version), Vision, Wasp, Dr. Strange, Ant-Man....ugh....i could revise this list over and over again. i think if i thought about it long enough, haha, i'd maybe decide to keep only X-men (since they're my favorite comic).

@grumpy@ I can't do it. Just twelve, I can't do it. I love them all even the ugly ones. @loll@



I can't do it either. I really like more than just 12 and there's been almost 200 different figures now, if I got the numbers right.

I cannot narrow it down to just 12...
