  1. Hasbro is well known for RE-DOING/UPDATING some concepts over the time, and when they do so, they deliver some really COOL STUFF.

     

    Just take a look to the 1995 STAR WARS 3 3/4" through the 2010 SW NEW Vintage; and from 2002 GIJOE vs. COBRA through the GIJOE 25th anniv, and Beyond 2010.

     

    They always do the same over the years, so it has crossed through my mind that WHAT IF Hasbro ever decides to RE-DO ENTIRELY the MARVEL LEGENDS 6" concept, from SQUARE ONE?.

    i.e. Back in 2001 with TOT BIZ series ONE which included CAPTAIN AMERICA, IRON MAN, HULK & TOAD. The figures were COOL ENOUGH back then, but we have to admit that they still missed some well sculpts, because of the tooling, they had "MONKEY ARMS" and in later series the figures sported the infamous "PIN HEADS".

     

    Today the 6" Super Hero figure standards are met with the 4H sculpts of the awesome MATTEL's DCUC series & MOTUC line.

    Today the MARVEL LEGENDS are (almost) gone, and the ones that we have collected over the years are not really good/cool enough; FIRST: they are not in scale even with themselves and SECOND: not in scale with their counterparts, the DCUC.

     

    Lets face it, DCUC sports the PERFECT MALE BODY for the portait of ANY SUPERHERO, (they DO always LOOK HEROIC), and on the other hand HASBRO has developed the PERFECT FEMALE BODY for the portrait of ANY SUPERHEROINE (they DO LOOK SEXY & HEROIC).

     

    So the question is, IF HASBRO EVER DECIDES TO MAKE a NEW ML figure series from square one, to met against MATTEL's DCUC, WOULD YOU -THE MARVEL LEGENDS collector- support the company?

     

     

    You stole my thoughts!!!!! Last night while cleaning and taking DCUC back to my cabinet and displaying my ML, I thought.....what happened?? I don´t like them as much as I used to...then I got it...DCUC has spoiled me. Consistent sculpts, good scale between them, keeping a style, getting better everyday and made me think "Hasbro has the opportunity to start over again and do things right!. If Mattel learned, Hasbro can certainly do so".

     

    Im not sure what to answer though. Hasbro can go two ways: start over again and make figures as tall and bulk as the first captain america, ghost rider, punisher, FO Hulk or go with the shorter legends, (FFF Hulk, FF Thing, Torch) so they can be in, somehow, scale.

     

    They are already using Quicksilver, Black Spider-man, Yellowjacket body as the base for future releases, in scale with later Hasbro legends. The protos of Titanium man and Crimson Dynamo are as tall as Hasbro´s Classic IM...movie figures are small as well, going around 5.5, 5.75.

     

    So, I don´t know if Hasbro will continue with their "small" legends. We could submit this question when the Q&A session shows up.

    I agree. I find it unnecessary. DCUC presently has a PERFECT level of articulation... although I would like the full up-and-down head articulation to return. I can accept the double joints on extremely flexible characters like Blue Beetle and the Creeper but I really don't want to see it become the norm across the whole line.

     

    Agreed. I find Blue Beetle to be less stable with the greater articulation. I just wish they'd do something about the joint where the thigh joins the hips. I hate seeing that weird gap when they stand posed with their legs open to any degree.

     

    okay, no disrespect to ANYONE, but if you grown a** people cant get a figure to stand by now....youre hopeless. how does four pegs make the fig "less" stable? my BB stands fine. i just see this as another way to whine about something....SMH.

     

     

    Ya. DCUC figures were good, but with limited articulation that hindered poseability. Now we have double jointed knees and elbows (which IMO THAT SHOULD BE IT AS ARTICULATION SHOULD GO), and I still find complaints. I agree with you Pooda, I guess whining is a hobby nowadays.

  3. Do predict the future or what!?!?!?

     

    Ok, I never predicted the GL line, but we all knew it could be a possibility.

     

    I suggested Bane, Mongul, Doomsday and Arkillo as BAFs (2 out of 4, and Doomsday is a must)

    wave 2 of DC vs MOTUC, hawkman / stratos, aquaman / mer-man (2 out of 2)

     

    I also said other stuff, which I don´t remember.....I guess my first prediction was "It would be cool to have Marvel Heroes ala Spider-man classics)

     

     

    ALSO, AND THIS IS GREAT, GREAT NEWS FOR EVERYONE HERE WHO LOVES ARTICULATION.

     

    Have you noticed most figures (AzBats, Manhunter, etc) sport DOUBLE, YES, DOUBLE KNEE JOINT!?!?!?

  4. Thanks for the info pooda! Did anyone seen the double jointed elbows creeper is sporting?? Hope they do that for knees!!! Figs RUGNETLY need that!

  5. I ahve a doubt this figures, original or re-released: Wave two Blue Superman can put his legs together to create a straight stance. I haven´t opened my Eradicator and he is preposed with his legs spread. The question is: Can Eradicator stand straight, like Blue Superman from wave 2? Cause just by seeing him, it doesn´t seem to. Same case with Wave 11 Cyborg Superman, who has a wide stance.

  6. ok so there is a slight differance. Thats a great idea not sure if i could live with the 2 different paints though. Grrr i like it though i still may do that myself

     

     

     

    well, the suit is made from a different material than metal....maybe that explains it. i just wanted a 1st flight GL. im going do a hal in every color...

    002-36.jpg

     

    Every Color? orange, yellow, red, etc?? I´d love to see that. Hal as different lanterns DCUC style

  7. Nice! I can't wait to snag the Flash! I like him because to me he reminds me of the tv show Flash.

    Draven

    Now that you mention it, yes he does! I'll get him if I see him.

    I´d like to see Flash in a metallic red, with the metallic boots, a resculpted head, with white eyes, a la JLU.
