1) Do you think TRU has run through their stock of Cyclops/Dark Phoenix, or will there be more? I haven't seen it in stores yet.
?


From what I've been told, there will be lots more Cyclops/Dark Phoenix sets coming to TRUs.
They just made another batch, and quickly sold it out too.
Then told everyone who ordered it when it briefly became available online but couldn't get it, that it's on backorder, not cancelled, because more will come in. In like a month.

There's practically never been a TRU exclusive ML or SWB that has been difficult to find for very long. In time, their exclusives show up in great numbers to meet demand. But this could mean they roll them out all summer long, and we find them on the racks in the fall.

With Defenders dropping on netflix recently, I broke out my (Affleck) Daredevil and new Iron Fist figure I bought at walmart clearance lately.

I know that those two figures are from different times and different companies...
But isn't the current Marvel Legends supposed to be a successor and continuation of the original ToyBiz line?
If so, why is Iron Fist a good half-head taller than Daredevil?

Recently saw the Netflix ML wave at walmart recently. With few exceptions, I borderline refuse to pay $20 for a single action figure.
But for a collector line wave, its just damn near perfect!! There has never been a DC, Marvel, or any other collector wave that I have wanted the entire wave and tempted me like this.
You don't know how bad I want the Jessica Jones figure!!!!

If I'm not mistaken all of the current Hasbro iterations are taller than their Toybiz counterparts. With the only exceptions being the few BAFs that have been redone by Hasbro.

Loved the reveals. Disappointed we didn't get a classic Thanos or a classic Storm (or Jim Lee), but punk rock Storm was a great consolation prize. :mrgreen: Loved Psylocke, Apocalypse, Paladin, tiger stripe Wolverine, King Cobra(?) and Iron Man (surprisingly enough). Also disappointed we didn't get Julia Carpenter Spider-woman, but I guess I'm kinda okay with the modern one we got. 2018 looks to be another banner year for ML.

I love the reveals! I'm most excited for Storm, Songbird, and King Cobra. I hope the Serpent Society figs keep coming, though it'd be nice to get some of the female members next (Anaconda or Diamondback would be my picks).

I was kind of surprised that they didn't show any more Marvel Knights figures considering how well received the current batch has been... Maybe next month at NYCC (especially since almost everything Netflix is based in NYC)

The way Hasbro burns through Spider-Verse characters it can't be too much longer for her...

... and Hasbro continues to take all our collective lunches with each Marvel Legends announcement. Deadpool, Spidey and X-Men waves are all crushing it.

Very happy and excited to see Psylocke.
Punk Storm is legit, even if I want the classic Byrne/Cockrum costume.
And Tiger stripe Wolverine looks really nice. REALLY nice. Which is weird because I thought the brown Wolverine they did in 2006 was a big flat. Like, technically correct but lacking in personality. But this one, maybe it's the headsculpt, but this yellow one looks really great.
