Repaints of older rare figures are great deals for us customizers, of course. those toys look pretty cool.

I always wanted an Ultimate cap but could never afford one and like Kyle said that Wolverine looks awesome. Plus I can repaint him and finally have a brown costume Wolvie >:O

I'd say there isn't going to be a BAF in this because it's not a Marvel Legends line, it seems like a generic "marvel super heroes" thing.

Im pretty sure it is wave 3 of hasbro marvel legends. from the preveiw book. but that doesent mean there will be a baf. there better be. they cant just end it on wave 2 with blob. and they will propbly release like 2 more figures too before it actually comes out.

Yeah, I think the BAF is a great marketing idea. I'd be very surprised if they dropped it.

I dunno about that guys. Viola, from Wikipedia:

Hasbro has not yet indicated which other figures will be in wave 3, but a list of characters confirmed to be in either wave 1, 2, or 3 was shown on message boards. After series' 1 and 2 were confirmed, these characters were left:

Cyclops (Astonishing X-men)
Cyclops (Astonishing X-men, Unmasked, Chase)
Danger
Ord
First Appearance Storm
Cosmic Marvel Girl (Rachel)
X-Men: The Last Stand Angel
X-Men: The Last Stand Colossus
X-Men: The Last Stand Colossus (Human form variant, Chase)

So while it sounds like a sweet line theres no Magneto, Cap, or Wolvie anywhere there. I think this must be something separate. :o

you know what? you could be right. I saw that "preveiws" at the comic book store and just figured it was the marvel legends. But now that I read it again it desent say anything about legends just marvel heroes. maybe this will be there version of "X-Men Classics" (XMC). That crap from wiki sounds lame. if I see another X-Men movies figur I just might have to take dump on it right there in the store. If the new line up with wolvie is not legends then I think it will definatly be the better line by hasbro unlike toybiz with the XMC which was pretty lame most the time (i mean c'mon... ninja, stealth, AND airstrike wolvie..lol) I want more collectibles and LESS fodder. Im sick of having to make the figs I want.

Unfortunately Hasbro has F-All on their site about anything to do with Marvel Legends.

Found this on the Wizard web site - http://wizarduniverse.stores.yahoo.net/jan074490.html

I guess they haven't come up with the 5th figure for this series.

Better pic too -

I'm sickened by the movie figures too, X3 sucked.

But the line is awesome just for First Appearance Storm.

Meh, the X-3 Juggernaut looks pretty cool to me, I like it more than the standard comic-version. It looks like his legs are going to be a little too chunky though...

I really liked the Jean figure when they showed the original pictures, it looked like a LOTR figure, but now that I see the new pictures of her the joints are ugly, her face is ugly, and the dress is ugly :(

Yep both Jean and Emma are butt ugly. Hasbro better get someone that knows how to sculpt a woman's face. The She Hulk looks OK but she has that goofy smile.

From what I read all of the sculpters from ToyBiz are working for Hasbro now...maybe they should pay them more and then we would get some better looking female figs
