ML figures look better by miles but the secondary market to build a team is insane. To get a Jim Lee Style X-Men team is what about 135-150 bucks and they didnt even make Jean Grey in that style

Space is a bit of concern, but price is even more so.

I just saw Wave 15 of DCUC solicited in Previews for $19.99! :shock:

Makes me wonder what the price point for the revamped Marvel Legends will be by 2012. I just can't see myself spending $20 for a mass produced 6 inch action figure.

On the other hand, I just picked up a new ML 2-pack for $24. That's more like it. :)

At $20 a pop, that's an easy pass for me as well. As much as I love/loved ML, I can't/won't do it.

I must say that every so often I look carefully at a 6" figure and am forcefully reminded of just how nice they can look.

Then I look at the price tag and the amount of storage space it would take and I remember why I prefer 3.75". Everything's a trade-off.

I am more of a 6-Inch collector that 3-3/4-Inch and ML was my line back in the day, so ML all the way! I like the new two-packs enough that I think I will finally start to rebuild my ML display this weekend, right above my DCUC display.

But truthfully, if I see a MU I like, I will grab it too, just I did with DCIH. And unlike Toy Biz ML, I won't be a completest. ML will get preference over MU though.
