Thanks man, but I'm confining myself to Marvel Legends - the pocketbook can't handle branching off into other lines!

Some have been good (as the poster below me mentions). I'm a fan of Phoenix and Storm, and the variants of the Wasp look good (I hate the head on the regular Wasp). The Spider-Women look pretty cool as well.

..but, sadly, I was only able to get the regular Wasp, and while I love Jan Van Dyne with all my heart, I thought her recent ML figure very very poor indeed.

Luckily, in a way, I have the 'Bug Jan' Wasp from the 90s, about the time she tranformed during The Crossing. I didn't mind Jan like that, and the figure is from a Spider Man line. You can get a glimpse of her here. Actually, 'untransformed,' (it was a 'transformer' line) she looked fairly good, at least as a 'Bug Jan.'

Peace and happy hunting.
