I really want a #MarvelLegends #IronMan that can stick his superhero landing! #Hasbro

The articulation set-up on Marvel Legends figures has really improved in the past couple of years. The two biggest changes have been in the hips and ankles. Ball-jointed hips, like those on the Face-Off Iron Man in the back, were decent, but the return to straight cuts that #ToyBiz had on #CaptainAmerica in the very first wave of Legends allows for a more unrestricted motion. The new ankles, with pegs inserted at an angle, allows for figures to be posed with wider stances with feet planted solidly on the ground.

But those innovations haven't seemed to materialize in the recent releases of Iron Man in the line. I think that's primarily due to not wanting to deviate from the armor designs. So while the pose can be cheated, closer examination reveals it's not quite there yet.

#SpiderMan, from the latest Spidey Legends wave (afpics.link/2brQtxj), can do it. #Namor (afpics.link/2apGudA), on the bigger buck, can do it. Even an oversized #Groot from the exclusive box set (afpics.link/1JkBi0O) can get closer to the superhero pose than Stark. Maybe one of these days we'll get an Iron Man from Hasbro that can stick it too.

#MarvelLegends #CaptainBritain and #WonderMan get long-awaited updates! #Hasbro #ToyBiz #FlashbackFriday #FF

It took over a decade, but Hasbro has released overdue updates to Captain Britain and Wonder Man. Both figures were originally released by Toy Biz over a decade ago, and re-used the #BlackPanther base body from the Sentinel Series in 2005. That was a much-criticized choice, as fans thought that body was too small and overly textured for the two characters.

The Toy Biz Cap was released in 2006 as part of the Wal-Mart exclusive Giant Man wave. I undertook two minor modifications try to size him up a bit. First, I raised his head so it would stand a bit higher on his neck. Then I added some additional length to his calves. His hips were really loose too - I fixed that by wrapping some dental tape around the pegs. Wonder Man came out in 2005 in the Legendary Rider series, which featured #Marvel characters and their "rides" - in this case, Wonder Man was the "ride" for Yellowjacket, who plugged into the back of his torso.

The new Captain Britain and Wonder Man are shipping with the latest #CaptainAmerica wave of Legends (afpics.link/2bGlXPp). Hasbro's got a really good set of base bodies in play now, so it's nice to see these guys appropriately-sized. The paint apps are solid too. I would have preferred the classic costume on Cap, but the modern look is a decent alternative. And Wonder Man in his un-powered look was a good choice - you can still get some ionic power with interchangeable hands and blast effects.

Captain Britain is double-packed in each case, so getting him individually should be easy enough (afpics.link/2bvFEuh). Wonder Man will be a tougher hunt for the time-being, unless you're willing to pay some jacked-up prices (afpics.link/2bEjuHT).

Angela, the Asgardian Assassin, is the 59th playable character in the #MarvelHeroes ARPG. She launched today and is a lot of fun. Now, my wait for her #MarvelLegends figure truly begins!

ICYMI, #Hasbro revealed Angela as part of their 2017 #GuardiansOfTheGalaxy line-up for Marvel Legends (afpics.link/2alfQ7c). I wrote almost three years ago how the roster of playable characters in Marvel Heroes is nearly fully represented in the Legends line (afpics.link/2bjOIDJ), and even though the roster has grown a lot since then, that's still true... but I'm still waiting for a Legends figure of #SquirrelGirl!

Interestingly, the alignment between video game characters and action figures also applies to the Marvel Heroes Team-Ups, who are sidekicks you can add to your roster to fight alongside you. There's somewhere in the neighborhood of 50 of those, and the latest Team-Ups include #MilesMorales, who shipped with the latest #SpiderMan Legends wave (afpics.link/2brQtxj), and #KamalaKhan #MsMarvel, who was revealed at #SDCC #SDCC2016 with Angela.

Discounting Team-Up variants like the #Deadpool Kid, Franken-Castle, and a Holiday version of #Groot, the biggest gap from the game in the Legends line is Clea. I would have thought her a lock for the #DrStrange set from #SDCC2015 or the Strange wave coming later this year, but she's still a no-show. One more for the Most Wanted list, Hasbro!

Heads Up: The exclusive #MarvelLegends #Avengers 3-pack is now in stock at #ToysRUs - afpics.link/2bQsGHY #Vision #SamWilson #Falcon #CaptainAmerica #KateBishop #Hawkeye

While there's some things I'd have preferred for this 3-pack, it's still a solid set. For one thing, it's tough to get yet another version of Vision (this time from the Uncanny Avengers) while we're still waiting on the first from the MCU.

But yes, this is a comic-based set. Sam Wilson as Captain America is an awesome choice, while slightly short-changed without his wings. Kate Bishop? Perfect.

The best thing about this is the very reasonable $49.99 price tag, which qualifies for free economy shipping from TRU. Compare that to the $59.99 price for the battle-damaged Cap, #IronMan, and movie #SpiderMan set (afpics.link/2bjNNjo). And when I first saw these in person in Hong Kong 3 months ago (afpics.link/2bHrRTL) they were going for around $75.

Thanks for our long-time pal, Paul, for the heads-up!

We are #Groot! Tree huggers - can you identify all eight of these vocabulary-challenged #GuardiansoftheGalaxy? #GotG

In no particular order... the exclusive #Hasbro #MarvelLegends GotG "Comic Edition" set came with two Groots - the fully grown one with the comic-styled head, and the tiniest of the potted Baby Groots. The set was recently on sale at Entertainment Earth (afpics.link/1JkBi0O) and just sold out.

The three vinyl Groots are (from largest to smallest) the #SuperDeluxe Groot, currently on sale at #GameStop (afpics.link/2bkQQtP); the #Funko #Dorbz XL Mossy Groot (afpics.link/2bdDEdX), which was an #SDCC2015 exclusive; and the Super Deluxe potted Groot that ships with #RocketRaccoon (afpics.link/2buhGRR). Those Super Deluxe vinyls are an especially good deal right now, because they originally were listed in the $60 - $80 range.

The larger of the two key chains is from the #Monogram #Marvel 3-D Figural Key Chain line (afpics.link/2bgs9MK), from way back in series 1. Good luck with the blind bags! The smaller, potted one is a #Funko Pop key chain (afpics.link/2bCTtI6) with a devastatingly cute bobble head. Groot's pot was originally white, but my wife colored it black so it'd be less distracting while driving, I think.

Finally, the potted Groot in the middle of the photo is a cheap knock-off of the #HotToys 1/4 scale Little Groot that is now sold-out at #SideshowToys (afpics.link/2bf3LOW). I couldn't resist the knock-off at 1/3 the price, but I got what I paid for. While it came with the additional heads, the paint apps were poor (I fixed what I could), and the figure is not bendy nor poseable at all.

For #TacoTuesday, here's a #MarvelLegends #Deadpool trio, including the newest one from the latest #XMen Legends wave.

Both the original Deadpool (from the #ToyBiz wave 6 back in 2004) and the more recent one (from the #Hasbro Face-Off 2-packs in 2010) have needed some minor modifications. For the original, I removed the shoulder hinges and sunk the ball-joints deeper into the torso (AKA the GrownNerd mod). Over the years, the shoulder straps deteriorated and needed some repair - the length of strap in the back was produced a bit too short and weakened due to excess stretching.

When the Face-Off Deadpool was released, I was not happy with his belt. It looked like it was made for a much wider figure. Oddly enough, this was only a problem with the red and black version - the X-Men and #XForce variants had belts that fit. For my original fix, I removed the excess plastic between pouches and glued the pouches to a "belt" made out of a twist tie. The twist tie eventually disintegrated, so I recently replaced it with a ribbon cut to length and colored with a brown Sharpie.

I'm very partial to the Cable & Deadpool costume, but the latest figure is quite solid with the latest articulation. I love that he comes fully-loaded with accessories, including an unmasked head that's extremely faithful to his current comic run, an arsenal that would make the #Punisher jealous, and a freaking taco. And check out that pinky...

He'll be very hard to find individually, so I recommend picking up a case of the latest X-Men Legends wave. Because there's eight figures in the wave, with each arguably the best representation for the character, you'll get the #Juggernaut BAF, with no dupe figures.

Patrick DavisI agree with buying a case, but I have been incredibly lucky seeing him out in the wild. Picked one up for myself, and then I have seen at least three since then. Hopefully Hasbro learned their lesson with the last round of D-Pooly and produced a lot more of these.

#CaptainBritain sticks his super-hero landing! #MarvelLegends

The new Captain Britain from #Hasbro is a big upgrade from the pint-sized version we got from #ToyBiz in the Giant-Man wave 10 years ago - that one was made on the textured Black Panther body, which got reused a few times for characters for which that body didn't make much sense.

If you want to pick up #BrianBraddock but aren't a fan of the entirety of the latest #CaptainAmerica wave, you're in luck - cases are shipping with doubles, so you'll be able to find him easily. Pre-orders are available at Entertainment Earth - afpics.link/2bzkpd5

I was really happy he arrived at the same time as my first #Bandai #TamashiiNations Impact Effect set. I've wanted this for a long time, and they're finally available on Amazon for non-import prices - afpics.link/2bviBAN

The new #Hasbro #MarvelLegends 12-inch #IronMan is a worthy successor to the #ToyBiz Icons. afpics.link/2b6QoC6

Sculpt, articulation, and deco are top notch. Interchangeable heads and hands, and blast effects that work with the hands and feet complete the package. A removable face plate on the helmeted head, like we got with the original 12-inch Icons Iron Man, would have put this figure way over the top.

The Toy Biz 12-inch figure was produced 10 years ago, in 2006. The 6-inch classic Iron Man was produced by Hasbro as part of the Face-Off 2-packs in 2009 - it's acknowledged as one of the figures that started Hasbro's turnaround, after their slow start taking over the Marvel Legends line.

How do you think the new #MarvelLegends 12-inch #SpiderMan measures up to his predecessors? #Hasbro #ToyBiz

Past 12-inch Spideys include the red and blue Spidey from the Marvel Legends Icons line and the black symbiote version from the Amazing Spider-Man line. Both were produced 10 years ago, in 2006. Icons is the spiritual predecessor to the current 12-inch line, with figures that closely followed the aesthetics and articulation of 6-inch Legends, while the Amazing Spidey line took advantage of rotocast to produce figures a bit more inexpensively.

While Icons technically has more POA than the current 12-incher (each finger on Icons is articulated separately), the newer figure's setup is much more functional. Icons has sculpted web lines, but I suspect the new Spidey is going to see some re-use if the line is successful. And overall, the symbiote Spidey fares the worst - it suffers in the articulation department, and the proportions seem off.

For me, the scales are further tipped to the newest Spidey for the inclusion of unmasked Peter Parker and half-masked heads. If you wanted an unmasked Spidey with Icons, you had to find and buy a variant figure separately.

What's an Invisible Girl to do? Which #MarvelLegends #Namor is the best? #ThrowbackThursday #TT #Hasbro #ToyBiz

The latest #Submariner (exclusive to Walgreens - afpics.link/2apGudA) is pictured here with the original, from the second series of Legends by Toy Biz, way back in 2002. Of course, the articulation on the new figure is vastly superior, but even after nearly a decade and a half, the arrogant head sculpt on the original still holds up.

The shortcoming of both figures is that neither is in the classic green speedo - Hasbro did attempt that costume back in 2007, but the resulting figure was disappointing (and not worth digging out for this pic).

In case you're wondering, the #InvisibleWoman figure is from the variant version of the #FantasticFour box set from Toy Biz, circa 2004.

The new #MarvelLegends #Wolverine is the best at what he does. #ThrowbackThursday #TT #Hasbro #ToyBiz

Before I got my hands on the latest Wolvie, I assumed he would be reusing an existing body, so I never really looked that closely. But the new body is shorter and thicker, really evoking the heyday of the character as drawn in the comics of Claremont / Byrne.

My nitpicks? The new shoulder hinges allow some really expressive poses but leave big gaps in the chest. He could also really use some paint apps to give him some hair on his arms.

This shot has him teamed up with some of the best Wolvie figures from the line - Astonishing X-Men (from the Apocalypse wave, Toy Biz 2005) and Uncanny X-Force (from the #SDCC #SDCC2012 exclusive set).

#Hasbro has given us a lot of #XForce in #MarvelLegends - I'd love them to redo #X23 in her black and silver X-Force costume.

#Archangel, #Psylocke, and #Wolverine were included in the Uncanny X-Force box set for #SDCC #SDCC2012. #Fantomex was in the #ArnimZola wave in 2012. #Deadpool was in the Epic Heroes wave in 2013. And #Warpath was from way back in 2010, in the Toys R Us exclusive 2-packs (with a classic red and black Deadpool).

X-23 had a pair of poorly received figures in the #ToyBiz #Apocalypse wave in 2005. She really deserves an update.

#Archangel, #Psylocke, and #Wolverine were included in the Uncanny X-Force box set for #SDCC #SDCC2012. #Fantomex was in the #ArnimZola wave in 2012. #Deadpool was in the Epic Heroes wave in 2013. And #Warpath was from way back in 2010, in the Toys R Us exclusive 2-packs (with a classic red and black Deadpool).

X-23 had a pair of poorly received figures in the #ToyBiz #Apocalypse wave in 2005. She really deserves an update.

Zach WolinerI'd just even like to get a chance to get the SDCC people, or at least that updated Psylocke, maybe in her more traditionally colored outfit. Of course, the classic Archangel from the Hit Monkey series would be nice, too.

Heads Up: #MarvelLegends Guardians of the Galaxy exclusive set at Entertainment Earth's Summer Sale for $75 - afpics.link/1JkBi0O

This is the lowest price yet for this excellent 6-inch Marvel Legends 5-pack that includes Groot, Drax the Destroyer, Gamora, Star-Lord, and Rocket Raccoon, with a bonus Baby Groot in pot. EE's summer clearance sale was just extended for a couple more days, so this deal will be gone soon.

Zach WolinerDamn! I still have mine from when it first came out, in the box. I wonder if I could get an exchange, or something like that. I thought it was best to act fast, when there was a sale and free shipping, then, where the team was so popular from the movie, but I guess this turned out to be a "good things come to those who wait" situation.

Meet the winner of the #Hasbro #MarvelLegends 2016 fan vote - #Songbird! She beat out Solo, Lasher, Scream, Terror Inc., and finalists Typhoid Mary, White Rabbit, and fellow Thunderbolt, Citizen V.

Hasbro first teased a Songbird painted prototype back in 2013 (shown here). But after Hasbro switched up their Marvel Legends marketing strategy to align more closely with the MCU movie releases, Songbird became one of the characters that got lost in the mix. By winning the fan vote, she'll finally get released in 2018, most likely using one of the newer base bodies, according to the Hasbro design team.

The new #Hasbro #MarvelLegends 12-inch #SpiderMan has some great articulation - it's a worthy successor to the #ToyBiz Marvel Legends Icons Spidey from so long ago.

This classic Spider-Man pose, and I suspect some of the traditional web-swinging poses, are hampered only by the hip articulation - they'd benefit from being able to spread a bit wider. That, plus web lines, would make this figure perfect.

The latest #MarvelLegends #CaptainAmerica wave has come and gone in Asia - check out #CaptainBritain!

I found remnants of the wave, including Brian Braddock, at a number of independent toy stores. I was impressed with him at #SDCC #SDCC2016 - but seeing him next to Cable has me wondering if he's too small or if Cable is too big. What do you think?

Based on this sighting, I think this wave should be hitting the States in a few weeks.

Brian WagnerCable is supposed to be like 6'8"-7ft tall, at various points. Braddock has gone from scrawny to buff back to scrawny, depending on the artist. I think he's supposed to be like 6'4"? When he roomied with Spidey, they were about same size, Excalibur had him tower over everyone except Piotr, and now he's been cut back again in Avengers and MI13. This figure gives him a more recent costume, but more of the Excalibur build. altho, he should have his sword in this costume.

Lots of options with the #MythicLegions Skeleton Legion Builders too.

Like the orcs, the skeletons come with a bunch of accessories, including optional shoulder plates, strap, axe, sword, and dagger. I've "upgraded" one of the skeletons with a spare skull with hinged jaw from Malleus and an extra strap.

#MythicLegions Orc Legion Builders offer a lot of customization options - even more when you combine with extra parts from other Orcs.

Here, I've borrowed a helmetless head and extra strap from Urzokk. But even without that, you've got optional shoulder plates, two different swords, an axe that can be configured to be single or double-bladed, and a strap that can positioned across the torso or the waist. Each orc in your horde can be unique.

#ThrowbackThursday - #MarvelLegends Icons #CaptainAmerica figures from #Hasbro (2016) and #ToyBiz (2006)

It's tough to beat the Toy Biz paint job and sculpted scale armor, but Hasbro's has some cool features, like interchangeable hands and heads (including the helmet shown here). The new 12-inch figure also has a pretty cool feature that lets you have Cap holding his shield using its straps, or attach it to his back via a reversible star peg.
