That sucks, not entirely unexpected but it sucks none the less. I would however like to know more about MT's relaionship with Hasbro. Could someone shed some light on it?

 

Yeah, it's too bad the line is gone. But I agree about the info on Hasbro. "Outside projects?" Ya don't think...nah. Hasbro couldn't have actually grown a brain cell or three about that which they took away from Jesse & Co., could they? Hurm. @hmmm@

This announcement truly, f@*&ing sickens me. While the longevity of this line was always in question, I think dropping this bomb before Series 3 (shown a year ago)could be released and while 2 was just beginning to trickle-out is absolutely deplorable; truly bad timing. Hell, a few Wal-Marts in my area that never even carried these were beginning to stock them a few weeks ago; things were looking-up. They even went so far as to say "sales were good" yet the plug was being pulled...WTF?!? With the promise of that wicked Frost Giant BAF (with variant none-the-less!), I can almost guarantee that sales for this particular wave would have doubled (even tripled) the first 2 series just based on fan's reactions. Despite the fact that I truly only wanted Mean Machine and Conan, I had already accepted that I'd personally be getting two full sets just for the Frost Giants. While this could mean good news for the Hasbro Legends line "shaping-up", I feel kicked in the gut and now wish I had never seen those damn proto.s from last year!

 

*PS- That little line to the effect of "for a look at LCBH wave 3 that will never see production, click here" was just cruel. Thanks for rubbing salt in the wound!

I couldnt agree with you more on all fronts here. this was a sweet ass line of figures and i already had room in my shelf for ice giant and the rest. I hope these outside projects mean that toybiz will be overseeing sculpt deco etc over the steaming crapfest that is hasbro marvel legends.

I am just sooooo friggin mad about this news!!!

I wanted VANGUARD so bad!!

Not only for my Savage Dragon but because he also goes with my Ninja Turtlesw collection.

Ugh I hope some one else picks up Savage Dragon and makes an entire line of figures because the character more than diserves his own line, I mean he has such a crazy cast of characters, even if people didn't know who he was the line would do well.

Man this ticks me off so much, I just want to kick a hole in the wall!

This is odd to say the least. I have still yet to see Wave 2 (aside from Judge Death) in stores and the 2-packs are finally showing up en masse. Its not for the figures I saw at SDCC that I weep (for the most part the first 3 waves didn't do a lot for me), but it was the concept of the line and the promise of many of my fav Indy characters getting made.
