I'm, confused. Are these 6" Legends scale or 4" Universe scale?

There's now a 4 inch Legends line because it wasn't confusing enough before.

Yeah, they're really screwing the pooch on the 4 inch line. I will say I'm a fan of that packaging.

Oh, look; this year's assortment of half-assed substandard garbage they'll do one production run with and ship haphazardly to one or two retailers for three weeks when the factories are in down-time producing 6" stuff.

Whatever.

I wish they'd just kill the line entirely and sub-let the scale to Japanese companies that would actually make worthwhile product.

I consider myself a marvel guy, and I have no clue who half of these guys are. Either they are scraping the bottom of the OHOTMU barrel, or they are intentionally pushing z-list characters due to some upcoming media appearances or marketing bullshit.

My tinfoil hat says that it clearly has something to do with promoting Avengers and ignoring X-Men. Throwing us a Rogue bone does nothing to sway that opinion.

At this point, I look at the photos with an eye toward what useful parts the figures contain and couldn't care less about the completely unknown characters. Yeah, and naming them "Legends" just feels like Hasbro trolling us at this point.

Did anyone notice the GI Joe/Cobra image? It looked like a card back except there were four attached together?

Spider Man Noir in 1:18 would have my interest, as would Rogue and Onslaught. Even if the latter two are 6" I would still dig their heads shrunken to 1:18. I'm desperate for a 1:18 skull that doesn't suck in some way, and Onslaught would work just fine for Red Skull.

EDIT. Yeah, the good stuff is 1:12. The carded figures no one has heard of in 35 years are 1:18.

It's more about 'what characters can we make from the library of parts we've got onhand from our years of haphazard management and shoddy engineering and design' than anything. You think *now* is when they're gonna start planning ahead for this line? Somehow, someway; 18th has become Hasbro's red-headed bastard stepchild.

There's a thing over on the stank for it. I saw the pics on Facebook. Four new characters from IDW comics...apparently there's going to be a vote on Hasbro Pulse - http://pulse.hasbro.com/en-us where we vote for which one is our favorite and something will happen. assuming a figure will be made based on whichever one wins.

Usually there is some marketing aspect, either a cross sell to a multimedia project or other upcoming promotional push. I assume that's why we've gotten so many z-list Avengers' villains in recent years and little to no FF or X-Men stuff.

But now, I can't even imagine who half of these guys are. Maybe they are going to show up in the post-battleworld, post-616 universe in the comics soon? The blue guy looks like OMAC and the beast guy looks like Calibak. It's like marvel is trying to rip off Kirby-era '70's DC characters.

But as always when they reveal new waves of random dartboard shit, I will complain about the lack of Dazzler, Polaris, Rachel Summers, Shadowcat, Maddie Pryor, Marauders, Reavers, Freedom Force, and any other X-character that are infinitely more important to Marvel's history than the complete nobodies they've cobbled together.

Blu guy is Yondu from Guardians of the Galaxy, dunno about the rest. Also KT, I'm pretty sure I remember that Spiderman Noir is getting a 1:18 scale version as well.

Marvel hasbeen pretty into the Inhumans, who happen to be awesome. Triton is an inhuman. The blue guy is Yondu from the original Guardians of the Galaxy. Spiderman Noir was from a four-issue "Noir" limited series, but then he began popping up in other books. He's actually pretty cool too. Ulik isn't exactly unknown either. I think it's cool they don't just keep making the same Hulk, Wolverine, Spiderman and Cap figs over and over. For some of us it's exciting to see figures made of characters we never thought we'd see.

Also, these new piece appear to have much better articulation than the last batches of shite Marvel gave us. Looks like they've just scaled down standard ML articulation.

To me, this is all a big step in the right direction, though I think it's foolish to call them Legends.

I really like this wave.
I have a bunch of IM mark 1 so I don't need that one but I'll probably get the rest. Maybe 2 or 3 of Ulik because I really like that mold.

Added these guys to the Archive.

Marvel Legends 4" 2016

Anyone heard if there is going to be a Civil War line? I haven't seen anything mention yet for 4".

Nope, Noir is a re-do of the SDCC Ultimate WWII Cap from a few years back, Iron Man is a repaint from the IM2 line, and Ulik is an Abomination re-do. The others on the new bucks all lack any torso artic at all and are still a batch of shit.

While I respect your opinion, I couldn't disagree more. The recent flood of Inhumans are Disney's attempt to push mutant-like characters whose movie rights aren't owned by Fox. It's their work around to the "X-Men problem".

The problem with that plan is that the characters are completely uninteresting and a farce compared to the real mutants. They are a sad, empty substitute.

"I know you like driving that Corvette, but here's a Ford Focus. It's just the same. Sporty and everything! You won't know the difference... unless you drive it. Or race it. Or look at it. Or try to sell it. Or attempt to pick up chics. Otherwise, it's exactly the same!"

F#$% the Inhumans.

Shit, I thought those parts were familiar. LAME. And I got to agree with Nacho.

The Inhumans should join Cyborg Superman, Ben Reilly, Azrael Batman, US Agent, and Coy & Vance Duke in the Hall of Fame for Shitty Substitutes.
