Opening them now. I got the regular versions.
The stand outs are Thor and then Steve Rogers. Biggest dissapointment is Iron Man mainly due to his size. IM only comes up to Steve Rogers chin. Ghost rider is also pretty cool and third best. Terrax is also great and is the same size as Thor.
Klaw and constictor are OK, a bit flat on the paint apps but cool to have some B grade villains. Hope Summers is good but I dont know much about the character.
I was looking at the packaging and was surprised that the products were distributed by Hasbro Canada not the US. Even more surprising was near the barcode it says "Distributed in Australia by Hasbro Australia. Distributed in New Zealand by Hasbro NZ"!!
So since the packaging was being designed they were always intended to be sold in Australia!!
Toy hunt for variants, here we come!!

Iceman,
Not sure if you are still looking to trade a regular IM for a variant. If you are let me know I still have one MOC.
Cheers

Distributed in Australia by Hasbro Australia LOL

Yet, we have a later release that's not cool Hasbro.

Its time for me to go to Toys R US or Target at that April date. I did not get mine overseas out of stock.

Thanks Otter and that's wonderful news.

The different Hasbro Distributors are mentioned on All Hasbro products.....irrespective if they are sold in those respective countries or not.

Am in Brunei ATM....and they even have the Legends here! Unbelievable considering there is less than half a million people living here!

I'm just waiting to see what is the full line up for wave 3 though, does anyone care to speculate what the BAF could be?

Not really , I dont like how they made some figures to make BAF parts e.g. Ultimate wolverine,punisher, current wave 2 big time spidey (never heard or saw these characters designs).I am looking forward if is going to be released in here and if it can replace my archangel with correct wings.

I just got the variant Steve Rogers w/ionic shield from King's (although there were three of these and only one "normal" one on the shelves when I showed up so I don't know how much of a variant it is).

If someone wants the Terrax piece just let me know. (I considered making a joke about grabbing his crotch, but thought better of it).

Sold out eh? I'd heard online that Rogers was popular.

Don't worry though. Usually when I pop for something from King's it will show up here at retail a week or two later. It happened with GL Classics Kyle Rayner just last year.

Ok, I'm probably the only one who gives a damn but King's "looks" like they are getting Series 2 of the return of Marvel Legends this week. I was not expecting this as they only got Series 1 last week.

Check it out. They are in the March 14th shipment under Toys/Collectibles.
(I don't know how to link to the section so here are a couple direct links...)
Big Time Spidey Dark Wolverine

I only say "looks" like because someone has entered them as "Marvel Universe" but there's no mistaking the lineup and the $32.95 price tag. I'm also confused because when I was in there last week someone was asking the staff about Series 2 and they had no idea when they were gonna show up.... Surprise!!!

Off-topic: Where can I get some cash quickly?

Update: Fixing the links

Thought should post in right thread.....

Hope all those who remember me are doing well! Thought would pop in to advise a find.

Went into TRU Australia and BOOM wave 2 (Hydra, Piledriver, future found Spidey) series 2 of Hasbro Marvel legends.

Of course did not scan, so they put them through at $19.99 as 3.75 figures. I would be surprised if they were actually $19.99, prob more like 29, but lets hope I get owned and they are $15.99 or something FAIR like that!

As mentioned earlier in the thread these have the Hasbro Epping distribution details printed on the inside box insert...so there was a plan to come to Australia. Man I hope these hit other stores too!!!

Icey and SA guys got em at TRU TTP, only grabbed Phantomex and Madam Hydra, no Wolvie on the shelf, so may have been a masked one...CURSES!

Nitey got your message too, will check it out!
