> Here it is. Some look good, some less so. As FunkG said, Annihilus looks is large and terrific, and Hercules does too, IMO. Enmma Frost looks a bit lanky, and WHY, oh WHY are they making yet another Banshee figure? This has got to be at least the 3rd if not the 4th one we've seen in 15 years. I like Sean, but Banshee as a figure doesn't do a lot for me. I'd much rather see a Crimson Dynamo, a Titanium MNan, or a Grey Gargoyle or dozens of others.

...is the visibility of the "ball joints". I never got that. It makes them look like toys, when they should look like 3D comic people! \:\-p
Sure, the elbow and knee joints are fine, but what normal human being has their arms sprout from their shoulders as if someone attached them there with a nail gun and a beach ball?
That being said, of these figures, I'd look into getting the Hulk and the Hercules. Too bad Annihulus is the "assemble a figure", because he looks the best of all of them.
Banshee looks ridiculous (his head was mounted on his neck like a trophy on a wall).
Emma looks like the lead singer of The Darkness...except with better hair.
I never got why they did a movie Beast figure. That's not a "Legend", it's just an X-3 cash-in.
And the Ultimate Iron Man looks like a shiny kids toy. I realize he's metallic in the comics, but at least make it look real, not like the same shiny plastic used to make Rom!

Man. Why does this board turn me into such a whiner?

Lamest Catchphrase EVER: "Rust never sleeps, Bro. And neither does The Griffin!" - The Griffin...good riddance!

"To see Watchmen and only see the grim and grittiness is to miss the point." - Bat-Mite (the poster)

"One of the people at Marvel said I worked with your father when he was at DC. I said, "My father was a steelworker, baby." That couldn't have been, they said. You're in your mid-20s. I was 13, that was me, I said." - Jim Shooter: The Man Kicked @$$!

"Yeah, well, him says even though Pippy Longstocking and the damn Grape Ape are ideal candidates for the Dirty Dozen -- I'm just going to say we might just want to bring the Red Beret." - Sawyer (from Lost)

Wow. Beast is getting little appreciation out there. He's the only one I really want to get.
