This ad is in the Jan 07 Previews. A couple of these look a little familiar...

Regardless of being made already, I think Hasbro saw that those characters where in high demand.

What gets me is the Ultimate Captain America and the Magneto look like the exact same molds that ToyBiz used.

Just like a lot of the new Hasbro Spider-Man villians all look very similiar to their ToyBiz versions.

Doesn't Hasbro have any sculptors with some originality?

when hasbro bought the license they also got all the original molds. What they did here is simple. SAME magneto, New color. Same XMC Cyclops but now released as legends. BROWN SUIT wolverine mold with new color (THIS WILL BE AWSOME) and same ult cap. I suspect that all of these will have BETTER joints and Better paint apps. and Hasbro uses a much better plastic than TB. New New Legends (I bought all of them) have a way smooth testure and finer detail than any TB fig. The joints are larger too LIKE SOTA street fighter figs. I personally cant wait to pick up new and improves magneto from an already great design. and that wolvie will be awsome. I suspect THE BEST YET. Brown suit series 6 was my fave and blue and yellow version will be sweet.

It looks like they all have different heads and hands.

Well it's good to hear that the Hasbro stuff is made better.

I am actually glad to have a chance to get an Ult Cap and Magneto considering what they're going for on eBay. Wonder if they will reissue Juggy and Deadpool?
