If you could replace one or two figures with a favorite character of yours who would you remove from and add to the box set?

I would love to see Mon-El and Dawnstar in the set. To make way for those two I would be forced to bump Matter Eater Lad and Chameleon Boy.

What sayeth the group?

I wouldn't bump anyone, just make a Box Set II already!

(and re-release Box Set I so I can get my hands on one, eBay is ridiculous right now)

I half agree with you. I'd bump Matter Eater Lad and Superboy, and add Dawnstar and Phantom Girl (Wildfire and Ultra Boy are lonely). Or Dream Girl, but she'd be lonely without Star Boy - only solution is more Legion figs!

Bouncing Boy!! Get that chubby bugger in the next 12 pack mattel!! :wink:

I want to see all the Legionaires that have made an appearance in the Timm verse shows, and all that were prominently featured in the Legion animated series. And while we're at it, any chance of getting the rest of the Fatal Five to make an appearance to give them someone to fight? Validus looks really lonely without the rest of his crew to back him up.

I'd prolly do the switch the OP suggested but as long as they get to everyone in this pic I am pretty satisfied :)

I don't see why they couldn't just do another pack. The first one sold out, and they still have enough characters for another pack.

1. Bouncing Boy
2. Shadow Lass
3. Mon-El
4. Dawnstar
5. Phantom Girl
6. Dream Girl
7. Supergirl
8. Sun Boy
9. Ferro Lad
10. Sensor Girl (Projectra)
11. Polar Boy
12. Blok

Although I'll say up front, a couple of those (Mon-El & Supergirl) could easily be replaced and issued as singles like they did with Thom Kallor. That would free up two more spots that I'd love to see go to Element Lad and either Gates, Sensor or Monstress (just for some variety).

Matter-eater lad gets the boot for Dawnstar.

Superboy gets the boot for Bouncing Boy.

Actually, Superboy gets the boot for anybody else in the Legion. I hate him THAT much. :twisted:

The only ones I see being an issue are the non standard humanoid looking characters. The tooling cost for these may be too high.

Blok
Dawnstar
Bouncing Boy
Tellus

Out of the first batch, I would have skipped
Superboy - then again, maybe he helped sell the set
Matter Eater Lad - except he shows that Mattel would make anyone.

Who to put in, without incurring a higher tooling cost?

I go with Dream Girl and Phantom Girl.

I agree with ian5555. They should do a second set based upon this picture.

...2. Timber Wolf

He is already in this box set :wink:

No one mentioned Shadow Lass! If you make Mon-El, you have to make Shady! Same with Triplicate Girl/Duo Damsel if you make a Bouncing Boy.

Lightning Lass or Light Lass?

If you make Ferro Lad, that opens things up for a real Lyle Norg (I prefer him as Invisible Kid) and Chemical King too.

Did anyone mention Shrinking Violet (in this thread)?

And I love the mention of Element Lad!

The funny part for me is, there is no one from this set that I would replace! I just want many of the ones mentioned here (Tellus, Gates, Monstress, XS, Blok, Invisible Kid II, are admittedly ones I can do without for now).

And I love the inclusion of Superboy! When I first read the Legion, it was, "Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes". Superboy had to be in it for me!

Dawnstar shouldn't be too hard, the Hawkman/girl wings and a few new pieces.
I'm not really that familiar with Blok, but he looks like he could be made on the Kilowog buck with a bit of texturing.

I still prefer the Waid/Kitson leagion, but I do agree that a second set should stay with the same era for consistency's sake if nothing else

Doh! Fixed hahahaha - I was afraid I was going to do that. I was too busy looking at the pic Ian posted lol. :D But I had to put it up, because honestly I wouldn't have replaced anyone from the first set.

And the problem with Shrinking Violet & Triplicate Girl is, who do you replace on the second list I made? Unless you pull Supergirl for Shrinking Violet there isn't anyone else I would pull for her. And Triplicate Girl would take up three spots to do correctly.

They will have a convenient new 3-pack packaging for 6 in. figures soon thanks to SP Penguin.

Yeah, didn't think about that.

And they really do need to get the rest of the Fatal Five in there. Validus is all lonely.

If a second set sells really well (if made) I'd say sell Triplicate Girl/Duo Damsel as a single on Matty so people can buy multiples but that could be wishful thinking.

I really like the list Texgnome posted with maybe Invisible Kid II instead of Timber Wolf. Blok as the oversized character would be perfect :)

If they don't put them in a giant multi pack, I'd rather see 2-packs and 3-packs instead of singles. That way, MattyCollector can't possibly screw up my order and send me three of the same triplicate girl.

On the topic of the Legion, is anyone reading their new book? Is it any good?
