    Marvel Legends Unleashed Questions

    Thanks for the heads up on that joint... From the photos it looks like they do. I wonder if future releases will have it.

    I hope so... The last line of Hulk figures (first movie) left something to be desired. MMF

    Marvel Legends Unleashed Questions

    WOW! What a great display! I never knew that they did the movie figures... Where they some kind of exclusive? Either way I'm sold! I'm going to head to Target and see what I can find! Thanks, MMF

    Marvel Legends Unleashed Questions

    I have been living under a rock these past few months and have a question... Just visited my local Target and found something called "'Marvel Legends Unleashed" (8" Spiderman and Goblin). Can anyone tell me what Hasbro has in store for this line? Is this going to be another Hasbro dead end (ICONS, Spiderman Origins, etc.) or is this something that will be expanded like the 6" ML line. Is anyone hot for these as their seems to be little interest(?). I also don't understand why they are so expensive (compared to ICONs). Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks, MMF

    Toy Fair 2008: Hasbro's Marvel Legends Unleashed Photos

    These look great!!!
  6. Is this it for Marvel Legends??? Pretty week bunch (other then Fing Fang Foom).
  7. ..I have not seen the new Spiderman movie figures yet (will check TRU Sunday). Does anyone know if the Ghost Rider that comes with the Turbo Scream Cycle is in scale with the Spiderman/F4 movie lines?
  8. ..does anyone know what happened to this company? There web site is down and they di dnot show at the recent New York Toy Fair. I was looking forward to their 12" Battlestar Galactica line.

    ML Bishop Scale Question

    The scale thing always bugged me... I wonder if some of the figures that seem out of scale like Bishop (bigger then normal) where sculpted by one particular person? What other ML figures seem off in the scale department?

    ML Bishop Scale Question

    I was just looking over my ML collection today and noticed how big Bishop is compared to everyone else (even cable). Is he this big in the comic books? I mean the guys head is Hulk huge! JB

    Is Hasbro stupid???

    Don't underestimate the older collector who played with Mego action figures. Check some of the online Mego web groups and you will be surprised how excited some of these collectors are. Also, for the record Famous Covers was not a bomb. It did very well for awhile with Toy Biz producing over 40 different figures.

    Marvel Legends Comic Question?

    Hi, this is a strange request that I'm hoping that someone who collects Marvel Legends can help me with. I collect the Marvel Movie 6" action figures by Toy Biz (I might be the only one on the planet who does!). Toy Biz placed house ads for these movie figures inside the free comic book included with each Marvel Legends series. So far I've been able to track down the following ML Series to confirm if they had a ad in them: Series 3: No ad Series 5: Blade Series 6: Punished/Spiderman 2 Series 11: Fantastic Four Series 12: Fantastic Four Series 13: No ad Can anyone help me with the missing series? I just need to know if they have a ad picturing any of the Toy Boz 6" Marvel movie action figures in them. Thanks! John
  13. ..maybe it is just my area (of the country) but it seems that the last few ML chase figures issued were really easy to find. Has anyone else noticed this??

    Spiderman Movie Figures?

    ..I'm not sure as to what you are asking. There were no intentional variants/chase figures for the first Spiderman movie action figures. There were a few running changes made.... Mary Jane was first issued in a dress that was painted light pink (that was not the same color as the dress she wore in the movie). Toy Biz corrected the mistake and issued her in a more authentic red dress. Green Goblin was first issued with his arm down inside his package. To better show off his sculpt he was latter issued with his arm up. These were not intentional chase figures (like the BS Marvel Legends chase figure marketing), but running changes to improve the product. That, as far as I know, was the extent of the variants for the first movie.
  15. Like everyone else I had heard a lot about this Marvel collection of lead figures being issued in the UK via a magazine subscription service. Called "The Marvel Figurine Collection", the characters selected for the line intrigued me so I decided to take the plunge and buy a set. I paid a UK dealer $300 (included airmail shipping) for an up to date set. I figured that if they were garbage I could always recoup my cost and sell them on Ebay. Well the heavy box arrived today and this is what I found... First off did I say that the box was heavy? I really meant to say is that these suckers are like freaking bricks! They will never fall over on a shelf even during a earthquake! Who knew that lead was so darn heavy. For those with kids that are worried about the lead I found out that you would have to actually eat one of these figures to get sick. Each figure package clearly states that they are intended for collectors 14 years and older. So unless you plan on eating one or letting your children chew on them I would not worry about the lead. The characters. As you can see from the companies web site they are making all of the major players in the Marvel Universe http://www.marvel-figurines.co.uk/. I'm not a fan of the Ultimate Marvel Universe (hate the look of Doc Ock) but if you love classic Marvel the bases are covered. The figures. The figures are not as nice as the prototypes pictured on the companies web site. If you rate what you see on the site as a 10, the actual production figures range between 7 and 9. The reason why is some have very sloppy paint jobs or rather the paint jobs could have been much better (like the prototypes). With that said they are still freaking awesome! I was really surprised at how nice they actually are. As a ML collector with very limited space I love the idea that these can be displayed on a small shelf. While the company making them does offer a display stand (I did not get one) they look great lined up in front of my Marvel Essentials book shelf. Spiderman, Juggernaut and Daredevil are my favorites and are almost 100% close in detail to what you see on the companies web site. The included books are also very nice... They are like a supped up version of The Marvel Universe Guide books. If these magazines (on great high gloss paper) were issued here in the US they would sell big time! Marvel must be helping with them as they are pretty up to date on what is going on in the funny books today. Verdict. If you find a partial or whole collection on Ebay UK (much cheaper then buying them individually) grab it! These are really nice figures and some toy company would be very wise to import then to the USA! If you always wanted to collect Bowen statues but can't afford them (like me) this is the next best thing! They are small, high quality and it seems that more are going to be issued. Don't know if it is true but I heard that they want to issue 50 different figures!
