The detailed and highly-articulated Marvel Legends 6" action figure line continues with these exciting figure 2-packs! With character combinations like Elektra and Ronin or Wolverine and Forge to choose from, kids can live out their fantasies of defending - or destroying! - the Marvel Universe!

Assortment contains 12 figures with no guarantee on the mix.

To answer your question: it had been rumored, as was the Mr. Fantastic/ Thing set. I really can't believe they are doing that set; the FF have had two ML breakoff lines devoted to these characters, that sold terribly. Hasbro, please listen: we don't need more Fantastic Four figures! They just aren't that popular anymore!

If they keep that paint wash on The Thing it'll sell, since the single carded one looked like an orange turd.

Peace,

Chip

Except that there's been at least 5 Thing figures to choose from, not all of which have said problem (I assume you mean FA Thing? That one was a stinker).

Will definitely get Forge, couldn't care less about the others.

No, I meant the Thing from the last FF wave (with Namor and Mole Man).

Peace,

there's also a redeco of Ronin as Red Hand Ninja (new head = STORM SHADOW)! and SHIELD two pack. Looks to be Nick and 'grunt' with helmet heads (and his last name is Castle? def Punisher-esque head!)
I think my only complaint about SHIELD is the grey body suit versus the ML5 navy-blue Nick.

also, there is a SKRULL/KREE 2pack! W00T!!
maybe someone can confirm that is Kl'rt/Super-Skrull's head?
he definitely comes with a GREY Thing hand with blue flames(??).
Kree is green accents on silver body, could pass for FA Mar-Vell? I wonder if there is a blue head variant?

also looking at the Forge pics, WHY does he have a BLOND HEAD VARIANT?
I get the Wolvie grimace/scream heads, but regular Forge and BLOND?
is this for a Havok/Iceman/Cannonball X-uniform variant?
(if anything else, that head is just another SHIELD variant figure!)

no sign of Reed/Thing 2pak, thank goodness!

Yeah, that one sucked too. I'm partial to the FF Classics wave one Thing, which looks like a John Byrne Thing. The one from the second wave (the Mike Wieringo one) is pretty nice too. And then there's the one from ML wave 2....

See, that's five Things already!

The Skrull is just a repainted Super-Skrull, which is pretty disappointing, actually. But I guess it's nice for everybody that never found one.

The blond head actually goes with Ronin, and is a Clint Barton head.

That was my assumption as well.
