Marvelous News---
Hasbro has revealed some of the figures in their first wave of 2015 for their Marvel Legends Infinite line. The wave will be Avengers based and include Modern Ms. Marvel, Machine Man, Scarlet Witch, Thor, Sentry and a Odin Build-A-Figure. There will be 2 maybe 3 more figures included in this first wave and one of the figures shown here is a swap but we have not been told which one




That Scarlet Witch looks great (as long as she comes out)

Spider Girl is okay-- but yet another regular Spiderman- that looks almost no different from the one that is sitting on every peg right now (yes alternate head- but come on)- and the Hobgoblin Figure-- looks like a good sculpt-- but is that really how he looks in the comics now-- UGH.

Always nice to see figures from cancelled waves (Radioactive Man, Thor) and, even more frustratingly, cancelled swaps (Sentry, Iron Fist) popping up again.

Though seeing it does raise one teeny, tiny, inconsequential question.

Where's Bulldozer??!?!

EDIT: Okay, okay, it got addressed in the panel, fair enough.

The Legends look phenomenal. The only pass for me is Spider-girl. Marvel Infinite completely got the shaft. We finally get long awaited characters like Beast, Black Cat and Bishop, and they strip away the articulation. Sigh. This just pushes me more towards Legends (of whom I was already a huge fan), and away from MI. The only reason Sandman still has articulation, is because he's using the Absorbing Man buck.

Every time a new wave of 4" Marvel figures is announced or released, I find myself asking why I don't just stop collecting them, sell off the ones I already have, and stick to a Legends-only collection.

I don't really have an answer for that question, and yet I end up never doing it anyway. Just inertia at this point, I suspect.

Apparently the plan was for him to be in the first Avengers wave in 2015, but he was too big to go with any of the Odin BAF pieces (and presumably the same goes for wave 2's Thanos).

Someone on the panel suggested that he might just be his own BAF somewhere down the line. So he's on their minds, at least.

Okay, so are Coulson, Hill, and Fury supposed to be a 3-pack ala Ultimate Cap, Radioactive Man, and Captain Marvel; or are they supposed to be part of an Avengers wave? I've heard it both ways.

It doesn't really matter, I'll be getting them no matter what, I just want to know what to look out for.

What Stew said.

I'm gonna try and grab the Gauntlet set but having a date and time in mind would sure come in handy.

You would think that you guys were newbies. You should know by now, that nobody really knows when the exclusives will go up on HTS. Just keep all your fingers crossed except for the one you use to F5. :wink:

thanks for letting me know. BAF is a fairly lousy option considering we got the rest of the wrecking crew on a blister card individually. ah well, i'm sure i'll be buying bulldozer in whatever form they release him (if they ever do).
