Is this the new Fantastic Four?
So No Tornato replied to JayC's topic in MarvelActually, the FF has had a "revolving-door" membership since the 1960's. Crystal (from the Inhumans) filled-in for Sue after Sue gave birth to Franklin (yes, Franklin was born in the 60's and SHOULD be pushing 40 by now...but in "Marvel-Time", he's still a toddler...). This change to Crystal lasted for at least a year. Of course, this was the 1960's, when the idea of a woman abandoning her work for a baby wasn't "shocking" to our PC sensisbilities. In the 1970's, Crystal's sister Medusa filled-in for Sue for several issues, and uber-babe amazon-warrior Thundra (I would LOVE a Thundra-Legend!) even filled-in for Ben Grimm a few times. Ben took another hiatus from the team in '76, and Luke Cage joined the team for about 5-6 issues (although he never got a powder-blue, open-neck pirate shirt with a big #4 on it...bummer!). In the 80's, Ms. Marvel was a member of the FF for a long time (I wasn't reading in the 80's, so I'm vague on details), as was She-Hulk. So it's not actually a new thing. In general, I'm not against it, I just don't like the proposed line-up.
Is hasbro still including the AXM Cyclops in its 3rd wave?
So No Tornato replied to Ghosts of Razgriz's topic in MarvelI'm guessing all will be revealed in FEB at TOY FAIR. That will be our first real look at true HASBRO Legends. To my knowledge, Waves 1 and 2 are actually Toy-Biz-planned waves picked up by HASBRO. This may also be true of Wave 3 (anyone know for sure?). HASBRO should reveal Wave 3, as well as (hopefully) some of a "Wave 4" and (maybe) "Wave 5" at TOY-FAIR. Then we'll know for sure if the line will live or die. I'm guessing it will live. I haven't been blown away by what I've seen so far, especially from the wretched-looking Jean Grey, but TOY-BIZ did their fair share of clunkers, too (pretty much all of the SMC lines except for the villains, Scarlet Witch, over--size Bishop and Sinister, tiny l'il AoA Sabretooth, minstrel-show Luke Cage and his deformed hand, the scarcity of ML 6 and ML 7 figs, wolverines ad-nauseum, etc, etc...). Hopefully, HASBRO can eliminate distribution problems and quality-control issues. If they can do that, and produce a nice variety of figs, I think we'll be fine.

So No Tornato replied to oracleip's topic in MarvelAll others pale in comparison to the perfectly done Black Widow.
Hasbro-we need an apology wave
So No Tornato replied to cajunthief's topic in MarvelDon't blame HASBRO for Toy-Biz's screw-ups (and there were many screw-ups...paint apps, floppy joints, poorly constructed torsos, where do I start?). If there's a market for these figures as you describe them, then perhaps HASBRO will consider revising/releasing them. Otherwise, it's not likely. Sorry. Don't mean to be harsh, but there it is.
