I think 5, 6 and 8 were the best so far, they weren't perfect, but they encompassed what I think makes a good legends set. good sculpts, included basses for most, and some of the figures that were a lil more obscure (or atleast not as forefront) like blade, man-thing, deadpool, fury, howard the duck, etc..... and around then is when TB started getting a better handle on scale of the figures. like before gambit is tiny compared to elektra and the punisher, ML3's wolvie was way too tall. they seemed to start doing the scale more in respect to the other figures around this time.

I love Deadpool and Juggy but I really didn't like the Punisher and Cable had Strange hip articulation(mine always kinda has the "I need to pee" look to it). I couldnt find a Pheonex but it looked awesome.

Agreed

I also agree with a Few exceptions, the bulk of the GM series being one

its hard to post a favorite series, because every series has its champ favorites and it's pegwarmer uglies. series 8 was good cuz of capt america, iron man, storm, but it also had swamp thing, the elongated iceman, the puggy doc ock and so on. its a mix with there never really being an all-star fan favorite series. won't happen.

series 7 is my favorite. I guess it has to do with when I started collecting (series so anythign from series 7 is(was) a grail for me. I dig the phasing effects from this series, plus while not the best characters, they are crucial to any big battle.

IMO, it kind of went downhill after Wave 10, with the exception of Wave 12. QC just started to get worse and they didn't resemble who they were meant to very well. Still better than Hasbro's stuff, but only by a little.

I must admit, I really like the MOJO series. I thought the selection was just beginning to get away from the obvious, and some of the figures were genuinely nice. Baron Zemo, first appearance iron man and Falcon are lovely figures, Psylocke is crappy, Luke Cage is ok, and Longshot was a bit rubbish BEFORE he had an action figure made of him, but has a lovely little man-bag!!!!!

Heh, I remember back in the day when female figs were uber hard to find because they only packed one per box (because retailers assumed "little boys won't want to play with girl action figures" and when you did find a female fig she was freaking hideous, like the old Storm fig from the early 90s. It wasn't until MacFarlane really started showing the world how cool looking action figures could look that we started seeing better molded females (I think Angela was one of the earliest really detailed female figs).

I'm going to have to go with the Giant Man series. Not only did it have the best BAF, I had 2 female figures that were highly articulate and not made from the same mold. It also had 4 Avengers (5 if you count the BAF) and 4 X people and 2 members of Excalibur (Kitty counts as both X and eX in my book). It was the pinnacle of ToyBiz's articulation phase also. It also had a selection of 9 figures!

Im saying it becaue I like the selection better. Prof X, Nightcrawler, DrStrange, WarMachine & Deathlok. Bullseye was good too. Series 11 had a lot high points but 9 really was better.

are you saying that only cause of the BAF? because I did love the sentinal BAF, but I have something against series 11. I can't quite tell what it is but I think its because of how insignificantly the figures where treated as, I my self think series 6 want the best because of the characters and the sculpt of them, you can't beat deadpool juggernaut and cable, plus the brown and yellow wolverine is my fav,

I like (scoff if you will) series 9 the best. The craftsman ship was at its peak, the intro of the BAF and the assortment was great. A close second would be series 12, the sculpts were awesome there too.
