I am so sad that toy biz is not making Marvel Legends anymore, these look like total crap, just look at that Jean Grey and tell me have you ever seen an uglier face? Marvel Legends are dead to me!!!

They don't look any better or worse than what has come before with Toybiz.

The only real thing of note is that it looks like Hasbro has for the most part done away with washes on the figures.

That's fine, it usually looked like crap.

Literally.

can someone explain how X3 Jean Grey seen at Comic Con had a perfect likeness, and now she looks like a male figure from 1995?

It's because the new people decided to stop using paint and start sniffing it.

I don't think these look any worse than Toy Biz. I agree with Vancleef, the lack of washes is a big plus. This is a LOT better than Hasbro's first wave. Can't wait for Yellowjacket and She- Hulk!

Does Xorn actually have a totally unpainted yellow torso... that completely doesn't match the yellow on the arms? I really haven't seen prototype photos this bad for a long time. The painted arms and cast plastic torso is a look I haven't seen since the mid-90's Generation X figures. Not a good move.

The yellow is the "X" of the New X-Men jacket (which is also painted black), which looks like a separate piece that sit on top of the grey "chained" torso.

Much, much better...especially Famke Jean.

Quicksilver and She-Hulk have more comic-book accurate faces methinks, too, than early photos.

QS looks a little cartoony, though.

Yeah, those new photos look really good. She Hulk and Yellowjacket are at the top of my want list, so I can't wait. I'll be skipping wave I though.

So what will the production toys actually look like, tho? All thru my history of collecting the publicity shots of the toys *always* look better/different than the finished product. There have been a few exceptions, for sure, but more often than not...

Peace,

Chip

Yeah, I'm with Chip on this one. And also, I'm in advertising.

I know how product shots can always be made to look so much better for publicity and marketing use.

You'll be amazed at the number of tricks we can pull to make food, people, toys, clothes and such look that much better on camera. (There's more of em than you already know) Check out that new DOVE campaign for instance.

The wizarduniverse pics? These weren't new angles, these were different sculpts. And I've a hunch that these were shots of the two-ups and prototypes, not the finished product. Even the ToyBiz Marvel Legends did this a lot.

Given that there is a significant pre-order market on this line, I wouldn't be surprised if they released those photos to entice people away from the Toyfare pics.

I so want to believe that the figures will look more like the wizarduniverse shots. I really do. Especially quicksilver, Blob and she huli. These are characters I've been wanting for quite some time.

>>I so want to believe that the figures will look more like the wizarduniverse shots. I really do.<<

James, all I can say is the figures I saw at SDCC looked great. Much better than the pics that were published in the last ToyFare.

Here's what Jesse Falcon had to say about the matter over on the Fwoosh:

Those pictures are of hand made samples form HK. Those samples do not represent the finished deco or the finished placement of parts at this time. It was a bit of a slip up that THOSE samples were photographed for press release. Unfortunately we are all human after all and mistakes do happen. I received this week the FEP samples from Hasbro and the samples that I reciveded were better in a lot of ways than those figures that you got pictures of but there still some tweaks that need to be made before there ready to ship.

Mike
(Jesse, of course, is in a position to know. So I think the figs are gonna look great.)
