Previous Post

I picked up the complete set of new Hasbro Marvel Legends figures.

The best figures in the series are Hercules and Planet Hulk (although another Hulk is a bit redundant).

The Iron Man, Beast and White Queen are okay.

Banshee sucks.

The Annihilus is awesome, if oddly colored (pinkish instead of purple.)

Hasbro has a chance to do some really good things with this series depending on their choices for future figures.

As far as future figures go, I for one would love to see more villains, such as:

Dr Doom (the 1st one wasn't that good).
Xemnu the Titan
Tiger Shark
Mr. Hyde
Gladiator (from Daredevil)
Super Adaptoid
Molten Man
Living Laser
Diamondhead (although he doesn't qualify for 'Legend' status, he could be a neat figure.)
Absorbing Man
Radioactive Man
Psycho Man
Stilt Man
Doc Samson (original costume)

A Retro Box Set with an original Beetle, original Titanium Man, original Mandarin (with the cheesy "M" on his chest) and maybe a silver age Red Skull. (I know, don't hold my breath waiting)

A Squardron Sinister Box Set with Hyperion, Dr. Spctrum, Nighthawk and Whizzer.

A Headmen Box Set with Gorilla Man, Ruby Thursday, Chondu and Jerry 'Shrunken Bones' Morgan. (Highly unlikely.)

...and maybe build-a-figures of Ultimo, Terminus, Tomazooma the Living Totem, Orka the Human Killer Whale and (please!)Fin Fang Foom.

Any thoughts?

I could do without the Abosrbing Man or Stegron, I have pretty awesome versions of those characters.

Nitro isn't planned for 2007, apparently.

From what I have read, the Marvel Heroes line will be re-releasing some Avengers and X-Men characters, which could be cool, if I could get a 'green speedos' Namor or USAgent.

I second Swarm, but honestly, I'm more interested in finishing a decent Masters of Evil team or a Frightful Four.

And I could really go for a lot less X-Men. And really go for more Avengers, like the Black Knight, Firestar, Tigra, Hellcat, and Mockingbird.

I know there are some obscure characters in the works, but we will have to wait a couple of weeks for ToyFair to fine out.
