great to see some of these figures. I'm super excited to complete the Wrecking crew, and they look awesome. Also happy to see Jim Lee's version of Jean. I look forward to the new female body sulpt and even more so for Moonstone. :) Hopefully we'll get Songbird and more classic Thunderbolts!!! (BAF Atlas too)


mini BAF's.........um...........yeah blah

hopefully we'll get a mini BAF Red wing to go with Falcon......

BUT Still need to make:

THANOS (isn't he a no brainer at this point?)
NIMROD (who doesn't want a killer, badass pink robot?)

just saying

I agree Thanos is long overdue.

There hasn't been a post that I've agreed with this much of in a long time.

I know he's not technically ML, but Marvel Select Thanos oughta be enough to scratch anyone's itch.

I mean, what's there to improve?

MS Thanos is great, but he's also expensive now.

Edit: After some research, I guess he's not that bad. A bit more than you would pay for an ML, but still reasonable. I like the bigger MS figures mixed in with my ML. I currently have Abomination, Thing and Juggernaut mixed in. I also have the Watcher with my MU, as he scales perfectly with them.

Some articulation would be nice. Or does Thanos have more than the basic MS articulation.

Nope. Just basic MS articulation.

I have that figure. It works well with ML and is so big that I really don't miss the articulation. Plus he comes with an Infinity Gauntlet, which is okay by me! :mrgreen:

And he comes with Lady Death! Not gonna get that with an ML nowadays. :)

Yeah, availability-wise, Thanos is very much in play. He's still available at many online retailers and his price is comparable to most Legends from back in the day.

And articulation-wise, I have no complaints. What's he missing, an ab crunch and double knees? No problem. Thanos don't kneel anyway. ;)

Seriously recommended addition to any ML collection.

Don't get me wrong Sean, he's a nice figure even without his ab crunch and Lady Death with her two faces is nice.

But I think the real question is where IS the Hasbro version as he really is a no brainier now after the Avengers film.

I agree he is a no brainer after the Avengers film... I would just love to see so many other larger characters first. Im happy with my MS Thanos.

Overall great showing of Marvel legends at SDCC. There were some nice reveals and a few suprises. Jean Grey is my favorite and Im pumped to finish the Wrecking Crew.

Im also very glad about the new female body type coming! Perfect shape for a new Emma Frost.

Thanks Hasbro Crew!

Emma is actually another one I feel no need to buy again, but Moonstone has me psyched!

True, I like both her previous costumes more than this one, but beggars and choosers and all that.

It's more that I just don't require much out of an Emma. I like the character in the comics, but as far as toys go, I just need any plastic body to fill that spot.
