The Triumphant Return of Marvel Legends

Over on Captain Toy, Michael Crawford has done a two part review for the newest Marvel Legends wave featuring the BAF for Terrax.

This wave includes:   Thor, Klaw, Hope Summers, Constrictor, Steve Rogers, Iron Man Extremis, Ghost Rider, Terrax

For a full review by Michael, check out the two parts:  Part 1, and Part 2.

Michael gave all of the figures between 3 and 3 1/2 stars, which is a really good score for an entire wave.  From what I have seen of his pictures, it appears that Hasbro has taken better care when creating characters.   They took over the Marvel Legends line a few years back, and basically drove it into the ground in what looked like riding the coat tails of success with an emphasis on ‘suck’.

Poor paint that looked unfinished and blotchy, bad sculpts including mannish women.   It looks like they are coming back with a renewed vigor.   There appear to be quite a few variants out there this time around.   Some are a little strange… like the orange flame Ghost Rider being the variant this time around.

Looks like I am going to have to go on a new hunt.  Thank goodness WonderCon is only a few weeks away.
