From a Wal-Mart just outside Portland, OR. I usually avoid the big W, but with their exclusive 6-inch Avengers and Amazing Spider-Man figs, I cave.

The End Of Marvel Legends?

From MU Collector Club:

In the next couple days he said they’ll reveal some figures from the Amazing Spiderman 2 ML wave and Captain America Winter Soldier Wave, very exciting news. This will give us a wide variety of characters. He said they’ll be releasing a wave for Guardians of the Galaxy, Xmen Days of the future past and and Ant man.

 

Likewise, apparently Marvel universe is going to be folded into only movie tie-in lines, too.  If this is true – and I won’t say for certain until a Hasbro rep says it – then it’s not a terrible surprise, since MU’s distribution has been crazy-awful and haphazard lately.  So, now what?  Will the movie figures all have 5 POA, or will they be MU-quality?  And if marvel Legends is going down, too, what will this do to the quality of the line?  Regardless, if it is being cancelled, it’s had a surprisingly good run – and even a revival!  So I can’t claim that ML is getting killed off too soon, but… I don’t know.  It feels sad, like the end of an era.  Marvel Legends was really what championed the 6″ scale into the massive juggernaut it is today, so seeing it go is very sad.

Was looking at the Marvel figures and noticed Doc Ock was now a poorly articulated army man. When I saw two other guys like this, I started cracking up. I alerted a nearby employee and explained what was wrong and he got a good laugh out of it too.

Toy Fair 2012 Updates, Part II

There’s already a ton of news and the damned show hasn’t even started yet (though it will have by the time I get this post up). On a side note, the Mattel collector show–and subsequent MOTUC reveals–will be at 3pm ET today.

JediCreeper is going to do a write-up tonight, including the Mattel event. In the meantime, he’ll continue to tweet all day.

I’ve also uploaded a ton of Hasbro press pics of yesterday’s reveals, which you can check out on my Flickr account. If you want to see pics of the Horsemen event, including pics of the upcoming Raven and Vampire Queen figures from FANtastic Exclusive, I recommend this gallery from PCN.

The Problem: The Ultron has been replaced by a Titanium Man. Which actually wasn’t as blatant as some other TATs–they’re both green, and robotic looking–but the lack of a head is a dead giveaway.

Karmic Payback: I hope you swallow an umbrella and it opens up inside you.
