Marvel Legends gallery @ MarvelousNews.com

WalMart Exclusive Wave- Ares Build-a-figure wave (8 figures)
* Kang (looks like itís a re-release of the Toy Biz Figure)
* Crossbones (current version from the Captain America comic. Heís BIG almost as big as Ares)
* F4 Human Torch (with a different paint job as a variant)
* Guardian (classic Alpha Flight version)
* Heroes Reborn Armor Iron Man
* Vision (Classic version, 70ís-ish)
* Ultimate War Machine
* Ben Riley Spider-man

*kicks Ares custom into the bin* Put me down for a set. Stoked to see Crossbones, Kang (hopefully the ratios are good) and Guardian. Each figure in this wave has display potential.


ML 2-packs
* Stealth Iron Man/Sharon Carter (from the pages of the current Captain America book)
* Classic 70ís Armor Iron Man/Maria Hill, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D
* DumDum Dugan/Hand Ninja

Look forward to filling out my Iron Man armoury. Bring on the S.H.I.E.L.D and Hand army builders.


Spider-man Classics aka "Hero Movie Action Figures" 6" Scale
* Tarantula
* Iron Spider-man(clear tint)
* Red and Blue Classic Spider-man (big eyes McFarlane-esque)
* Juggernaut (classic version and red and gold variant)
* Venom III ("classic" with a long tail)

Tarantula and Iron Spider-man (never got the original figure) will probably be my main picks. Juggernaut doesn't look as big/wide as the ToyBiz version - surprised he's featured in a Spidey line.

Kinda hit and miss...

Walmart Exclusive
* Kang - Sweet
* Crossbones - Awesome
* F4 Human Torch - Already got too many of these
* Guardian - Awesome
* Heroes Reborn Armor Iron Man - Looks good, but not fussed
* Vision - Looks good, but i'm happy with mine
* Ultimate War Machine - Cheap repaint
* Ben Riley Spider-man - Looks good.
* Ares - Looks good, but the series is too big for such a little baf.

2-Packs
* Stealth Iron Man/Sharon Carter - This one I may have to track down...
I'd like to get the other two, but not going to expend too much effort/cash...
* Classic 70ís Armor Iron Man/Maria Hill, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D
* DumDum Dugan/Hand Ninja

They tend to look good from a distance, I wonder how good the detail will be when you get up close... and considering how much they're re-using sculpts I'd really like to see a drop in their price!

there's a few things i didn't actually notice at first. there appear to be some f4 figures at the back of the two packs section. they look like they're back in their black/blue duds. the johnny and sue pack looks like it may be a good one. johnny looks like the f4 sculpt but they fixed the head. sue looks like she has a new head sculpt...

There's a Mr. Fantastic and Thing 2-pack, so I guess there is an upcoming Johnny and Sue 2-pack.

Lots of great news here. Ares is an interesting choice for a BAF given he's smaller than many characters who have been regular figures. Not sure if we needed another Vision, but he's one of my favourite Avengers so I'll take him. The Kang is a straight repack so I might have to unload him. Is the Stealth Iron man a repack of the original, repaint of a different Iron Man or straight up all new??? The Skrull looks like a repaint of the FF series Skrull/Super Skrull but it was a great sculpt so again no complaints here. Good to see SHIELD represented with pretty much the whole gang and the Hand ninjas look great too.

* Ares is an interesting choice. I thought Hasbro would have gone for a larger scale character, i.e. a Thanos, Bi-Beast etc., but then again there have been a number of fan requests for Ares so maybe Hasbro is trying to keep collectors happy.

* Never got the original FF Kang so this will be a nice addition to the display shelf.

* The Iron Man 2-packs seem to be using different bodies - they seem slimmer than the ToyBiz Iron Man figures.

Looking at it I think the two 2-pack iron man figures are using the same body. But it is a new sculpt...

These really need to start hitting bricks and mortar stores again. I really want to pick and choose, but there's too many duds and they're too expensive to justify shelling out for whole cases.

Shredder, Foot Solider and Super Foot Soldier pics are up at fwoosh and figures.com from NECA's TMNT line.

Some Mezco Spirit figures are up at figures.com also, although they pale in comparison to Mezco's Hellboy figures.

Figures.com also have Mezco's latest Heroes figures. Still very hit and miss when it comes to likeness and articulation.

Apparently there's lots of GI Joe and Star Wars stuff floating about, but I don't follow those lines . . . . I think "rebelscum" or something like that was mentioned.

Four Horsemen's "Queen" variants for their 7th Kingdom line pics are also up at figures.com. I wish those figures were more easily available, but probably a good thing since I would have been addicted to cool Animal Warrior figures.

No news on MOTU as yet (that I can find). King Grayskull goes on sale tomorrow and the card back is meant to feature other figures. However, you can sign up for Mattel's Collector newsletter at mattycollector.com

That's the main stuff I've found so far. The figures.com gallery is starting to fill up nicely.

Cheers.

Mattel's new "collector" website is now up and running.

He-Man and Beastman shown and both look GREAT! But they're $20.00 each, yet the DCUC two-pack (Adam Strange and Starfire) is $20.00 for both figures.

Given they're going to be reclycling bodies in the MOTU line like they do with DCUC, I don't see why I can buy two DCUC figures for the price of one MOTU figure.

Cheers.

Any idea on when shipping is going to include countries outside of North America (US and Canada)? My other option would be to wait until I'm working out of Denver.

* Seems there is a running change within the Fin Fang Foom BAF wave. Grey Savage Hulk will be replaced with a Green Savage Hulk.

mattel dc panel pics from Toynewsi

Good:
Pics of Flash (WOOHOO!), Big Barda, Blue Beetle and Booster Gold
Atom Smasher BAF....I mean CAC
Wave 3 ships next week apparently.
[EDIT] Final lineup for 6 has been announced; Mullet Recovery Supes, Hawkman, Mr Miracle, Killer Moth, Shazam, Kalibak CAC

Bad:
Flash appears to be Barry Allen, hopefully a Wally West modern one is soon to follow...
9 figure waves... booo, i really liked the small 5 figure ones. but I guess if they start making > 12" CACs... [EDIT] Hmmm, not sure about this. Apparently wave 7 is 7 figures (Barry and Kid Flashes, Captain Cold, Booster, Beetle, Barda, Camo Aquaman) but the cases are 10 figures, I'm still going to be all over it, but there may be extras to pass on.

[EDIT] Man the more I look at these the more I'm giving them my money. I thought after wave 3 I'd be picking and choosing. But as it stands I'll probably be getting all of the non-exclusve waves and attempting to track down some of the two-packs...
