I would definitely pick up a couple of the pieces and love terrax but would just use his weapon and make my own. when anyone finds out if constrictors tentacles are bendable, I would love to know. Not interested in him if they are stationary, but glad to see them back, love the dc figs, just like to make my own. And the more that comes out the better off we all are.

I find it interesting that so many people like the Terrax. To me he looks wayyyyy to scrawny, like Terrax's younger brother Nerdax.

agreed would rather take his weapon away and show it to my terrax and see if he cries lol. Would like to get a better view of the head whether it is worth it or not, mainly he is a fodder piece such as weapon and maybe the head.

I like the head sculpt:

I hate that he cant hold his own axe, Really hoping they fix that before release.
As for him being too scrawny~This actually his most common appearance in the comics.

Though, I'll agree his bulkier shorter appearance fits him a bit better.

Not really, that's a super old pic. He's significantly more muscular, and depending on the artist, a lot broader. It's not even his build that really bugs me about him, it's the super thick red part over his chest. Way too thick. Don't get me wrong the figure looks okay, but lets face it, it's not the best version of Terrax that they could have made. It's all good though, I'm just happy they are making Marvel Legends in general.

question: for the collector.wouldnt re-releasing legends(like the king/lord thor) kinda de-value the old original ones?i mean personally i think its cool,like when they did it for spidey origins 6 inch series,but it seems like it would hurt the collectability and price of the original.but hey,im geeked that they are bringin legends back,and actually pretty excited for the sub lines,i was beginning to feel like mu was gonna take over and we would only get craptastic six inch figures,arnim zola looks cool!!so does that loki!!!baf is back,nerds rejoice along with me!i hope they really are 10.99,that price really isnt too bad at all,wave two daken,i wonder if that will be an old wolverine sculpt or if they will make it look cool

I am excited they are bringing them back, just wish they could make at least 75% of the set definite wants and better distribution, anyone still waiting for a toybiz deadpool and juggernaut? But they do look sweet and will definitely check them out. As for Terrax I like him when Ron Lim drew him around the time of Nova's death, better size and look all around. If you go back and see Apocalypse when he first came out was skinny then went on a crazy work-out regimen and became truly awesome and frightening.

It does hurt the collectability and price of the originals, but I think that is there intention. A highly collectable figure with a high price point profits the toy company exactly 0, but re-releasing the figure in a new wave makes them profit.

true, but it makes us(not me really i just like a full collection and lots of characters in stores) happy as collectors to keep the prices of our stuff goin up and not down,but honestly the value of my collection doesnt affect what i buy,i just buy the ones i like,although some peeps buy simply for makin money later,which is nice for us when we cant find them in stores and have to shell out thirty bucks for a brand new ten dollar figure,but im not tryin to complain,im happy to get them at all!its a privelage to live somewhere where we can collect toys for fun,either way i am so excited about these bad boys,never thought they would make a madame masque figure! i wonder how long we will have to wait in between waves before they release the next,keep em comin hasbro!!!i am kinda starting to dig the terrax too

They did mention they will be doing 1 figure in each wave sort of in the style of DCUC's "All-Stars".
Figure wont come with a BAF piece and will be a re-release or repaint of a previously released "Heavy Hitter/Popular" figure.
However, They have mentioned they will phase out the older (ToyBiz) Sculpts and Designs... So I dunno.

The price on Legends is actually announced to be an MSRP of 14.99, Where the sub-lines are 10.99 (However TRU obviously does not follow these suggested prices...)

SDCC Thor + Other Hasbro SDCC Exclusives will be available in short supply today (7/25) on http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/
Should be 24.99 + Shipping~I'm hoping to snag one, I'll give a shout when I see 'em put up.

and by the way man,thanks alot for goin to all the trouble to get us these pics and all the info,you made my week! the "all star" type thing sounds awesome,maybe they can release a jen grey/pheonix repaint made to look like the jim lee version,that would be a mega fan pleaser! i always check hasbro and they never have any legends that you can order,i hope that changes because i would rather get it from them than tru,if you ever find toys at big lots or k mart the price difference is crazy,also there is a great indoor flea market near my house that sells legends and all sorts of wonderfull geeky greatness for dirt cheapi got a bi beast for four bucks!!!!! i cant wait to get that hope,most of my female legends are my daughters(sorta,just for fun so she can collect with me)and we havent gotten anything i awile!lets hope and pray the ghost rider comes with a bike.you know what would be a cool baf? kurrth the breaker of stone!
