Rare Marvel Universe Figures ?

Post by TahmidN on Sat Apr 09, 2011 12:58 pm

So, well know that through the Marvel Legends line, there have been a couple of "rare figures. The conventional ones being Juggernaut, Deadpool blah blah, and the pretty much super rare figures (Silver Variant Luke Cage, Blue Wasp Black Psylocke, these things are limited to like 6 in the world).
So i was wondering with Marvel Universe are there any figures that are perceived as rare?

The Archangel repaint exclusive from the NYCC last year is the most expensive going for upwards of $150.00 hence I don't have one. I think the Nick Fury Digital Comic subscription exclusive from the year before probably 2nd. (I painted a GI Joe head and stuck it on a SHIELD agent body from the 3 pack) because once again they go upwards of $70.00. Out of the regulars the Vision is a tough grab and so are ones like Iron Patriot/Norman Osborn variant, Death's Head Archangel variant, classic Havok variant mainly because they weren't released here but can be picked up from eBay fairly easily.

I saw the Iron Patriot/Osborn variant, a Havok and a NYCC Archangel amongst many others during my travels last year - it's always a case of if I don't want it then I'll find it LOL.

With new MU, did Hasbro ever release that blonde Black Widow?

Or haven't they released any variants?

Up until now no sign of the blonde variant Black Widow but the Warpath variant and phasing Vision variant are out and about in the U.S. Also just starting to trickle onto ebay are the Black Goliath & Frost Giant Gigantic battles sets. I would be very surprised if they showed up here though. Sad

I think so. It was a bonus gift for signing up for the Marvel's online digital comics.

LOL that's right. That being said, the real gift was the free chat I had with one of Marvel's female reps .... cyclops talk about stunning. Definitely doing another North American con run next year - hopefully I'll be a little closer to securing a permanent work position overseas.

Well what are Hasbro going to release in Australia?

Toy aisles are such depressing places these days. A smattering of left-over stock from ancient toy lines and never anything new. The last "cool" figures that I saw in-store were the 5" Harry Potter figures for the latest movie, but since I have NECA's 7" figures, they weren't really on my "to buy" list.

Oh well. I can continue to hope that mattycollector.com will start to sell individual DCUC figures and that Hasbro will make the relaunched Marvel Legends available online (with international shipping) as well.

Cheers.

Looks like the Archangel figure from NYCC is now included as a free gift when you sign-up with Marvel for a one year digital comic subscription. It's a cool figure .. just ask TheGoodDr
