Here are a few quick pictures of my recently started Marvel Legends line.

Most are from the Hasbro "Infinite" series with the lone exception of Beast, from when ToyBiz ran the line.




90's Cyclops and Brown Suit Wolverine (from the new "Vintage Cardback" series) fighting a complete Build-A-Figure Juggernaut.. with ToyBiz Beast trying to take off his helmet.

(ToyBiz Beast may be my favorite figure out of all of these. Toe and finger articulation!!!)







"Street Level Heroes" - Ghost Rider, Walgreens Exclusive Yellow Suit Daredevil, Moon Knight and Blade




Walgreens Exclusive Human Torch, Winter Soldier and Thor Odinson



Unmasked Deadpool with pinky up.  lol!



Taskmaster (w/ Red Lightsaber), perhaps top 2 best figures made.



MCU Black Panther, one of my favorite comic book characters of all time.



GameStop Exclusive Back in Black Deadpool, Spider-Man 2099 and "Pizza" Spidey from the Vintage Cardback serie -- and yes, Deadpool has TWO purple lightsaber katanas!



Carnage holding my extra Spidey head and Agent Venom in the background

Went hunting for the new Black Panther wave recently released and picked up the main figures I wanted:

Black Bolt





Invincible Iron Man







Both have some really great alternate heads. And both characters are a top 5 favorite of mine.

Excited to add them as the first hunt of 2018 comes to an end!

Walgreens has legends and black series figures on sale right now for 12.99 I picked up some of the black panther wave and a daredevil Walgreens exclusive. The black series was picked over. I don't collect it anyway but all they had was Finn.

Pulled some of them out. I know these aren't out of the box yet, but I am an opener. I just don't have a cabinet to set them up in yet. Plan on making a Jim Lee xmen shelf, marvel movie shelf, and maybe a comic character shelf. This isn't all of them, but the ones in the closet I dont know where they are in there and that thing is packed head to toe, front to back.







If you notice some are extra or I got them because they were cheap. If anyone needs a tech suit Spidey from the homecoming wave, or the 12" cap and want to trade for something I don't have let me know. I do have some legends not pictured but not a ton, and especially no older stuff.

Anybody finding the Deadpool/sasquatch wave? Toys r us had a few supposedly but since they are all about to close the employees won't even go look when I call to make sure their computer is right. I want the red and gray Deadpool and cable from that wave.

I saw the Walmart thanks also but it is a comic version and i want the movie version. The only figures from that build a figure wave I am considering though are iron spider and proxima midnight (think that's her name). Really don't want or need another iron man or captain America. My legends focus of staying to movie figures has expanded to that plus figures I like and the Jim Lee style xmen.

If you guys are finding that Deadpool wave and happen across some extras you don't need let me know.

@trappedtexan Nice collection, Bryan!

And to answer your question, I have not ran into the new Deadpool wave in NJ yet. However, I know it was found in New York City.

I have been on the hunt for it and if I come across the ones you mentioned, I'll definitely pick them up.

Last pick-up I had was Walgreens Exclusive Mr. Fantastic and the Lizard BAF Wave (Noir, Gwenpool, Mysterio variant).

I've dipped my toe, recently, into the world of Marvel Legends with these two...

Groot is one of my favorites. It is such an excellent sculpt I like that figure quite a bit.

Toys r us is going out of business, if you live under a rock you may not know they went bankrupt and have to liquidate everything. Anyway I stopped in the one in South ft worth yesterday as I wanted my son to see this major toy store since it is one of the last of its kind. To my surprise they had the vision scarlet witch two pack, had tons of the a force all girl character packs, ghost rider and motorcycles and black widow motorcycle packs. I was surprised to see these there as the new toys I thought wouldn't come to them since they are closing shop. I didn't buy any since they are only 10% off and though I want some of these, they aren't worth the asking price in my opinion.

On the way he from there I did stop by a Walgreens and found the 90s Deadpool from the sasquatch wave. Sadly the others were already gone so still on the hunt for the gray xforce Deadpool and cable from this wave. Was a happy surprise to see this wave in my are as infinity war and black panther waves have been covering shelves around here lately. I am personally holding off on the infinity war wave as proxima midnight, iron spider, and the build a figure thanos I think will be some cheaper down the line.

Does anyone else mix other lines with their legends? I saw figma or figuarts is releasing a thanos also and it looks way better than the legends one but I don't know how it will scale with my legends figures.

Target just happened to have a case of these I'm the back room, and the guy was nice enough to get them for me. These two seem to be the most wanted from this wave and for me they along with the red Deadpool were the only ones I wanted. I am on the fence about the dominoe character, she doesn't quite look like I remember her from the 90s books which is what my xmen display is gonna represent more or less.

Nice two figures to start with, T'Shot!

@trappedtexan And Bryan, great finds! I recently found all of the Deadpool wave myself. Also got a Marvel Select Nightcrawler for my birthday and that Ghost Rider with motorcycle (which I head swapped onto the old GR). I skipped over Paladin from DP Wave, though.

Cable is definitely the best figure in the line, and probably a top 10 maybe even 5 for this series in general.

I actually don't collect any from the MCU, and I skipped over any infinity war wave figure (though Proxima is tempting because I highly doubt a comic version would be created). No figmas or shfiguarts from Marvel to date yet either, however I'm REALLY close to getting my first Mezco One:12

Black Panther wave I only picked up Black Bolt and Iron Man. Maybe Namor soon.

I cannot wait for the new x-men wave as it's probably going to be the first full wave I want, with an AWESOME Build-A-Figure. Wolverine, Storm, Multiple Man, Magneto, Gladiator.. too cool!

My favorite Spiderman figure is actually the mafex amazing Spiderman movie figure i have the amazing Spiderman 2 one also which shares the same articulation but don't have the homecoming yet. I have 4 mezco figures so far; two versions of judge dredd, Deadpool, and dark knight returns Batman. These are the 6inch version of a hot toys figure i think. I don't have any hot toys or sideshow but the mezco are absolutely the top of the line for 6 inch I think. Mine are all the official ones, but I have considered getting some of the China versions that pop up on eBay of lesser desired characters to me. Like a green arrow or Superman, I can't justify the $60-80 price for an actual release but $30-40ish may be in range to me since I don't really need the character just like the toys. My biggest gripe with mezco is their exclusives. I mean the tiger stripe wolverine is selling for several hundred and the classic punisher is well above that. Surely they knew those would be the more desirable versions of those figures, why not make a larger supply? Outside of that the main reason for wondering if figuarts fit in scale with legends is they announced a thanos. The pics look so much better than the legends version. I am considering stopping the MCU figures though as now they are releasing so many my wallet is really in pain. The Deadpool second wave and the apocalypse baf wave I am looking forward to also. Though I don't want every figure in either one, I really want the Sauron and Apocalypse figures. And that Jim Lee bishop, wolverine, psyloch, along with the Deadpool versions are must have to me from those waves.

That's awesome! I didn't know you had the mafex Spidey and all of those Mezco. Glad you said that they're top of the line for 6" because that makes me want to buy one even more now. I really like the classic, Yellow Daredevil with the three head swaps.

AGREED about the Punisher and Tiger Stripe Wolverine! I was there during New York Comic Con when it got released and when the doors opened, the line to the Mezco booth was 2-3 hours long. I said, "NO. WAY." And Punisher is almost untouchable for that price, $300-600+ .. ridic.

I feel you on the Chinese version of some figures. I was thinking about buying some Revoltech awhile back for cheap but never took a bite. Have you seen reviews on the bootlegs? Do they hold up?

Second wave for Deadpool... that's the x-men uniform one and the other one with him in his boxers? If so, that's going to be a good one!
