Ripclaw
Legendary Comic Book Heroes (Marvel Toys) - Pitt Series
Rated 3.50 stars by VariablePenguin
Run down: Sculpting - This is a great looking figure, but upon closer inspection, it seems ToyBiz kept their Black Panther molds because his torso and thighs are all cast from that. The head sculpt is dead on to the likeness of the character. His clawed hands are a little to bulky in the back of the hand. I do like the sculpting of the ties on his biceps. Painting - Here Ripclaw has some severe drawbacks. The red paint on his chest and shoulders looks to have bled and the lines are very blurry. The grey lines on his boots also suffer the same blurry problem and on my figure were offset. He has severe chipping on his shoulder joints both of red and white paint. Another issue being that I don't actually recognize this costume. Sure it has claws and looks like Ripclaw, but I...[See More]

im not so disappointed by the fact that the base was a black panther,cause after all there are several marvel legends figures that are duplicates of another figure i/e:FO Punisher is a buffed up Iron Fist.Captain Marvel,Moon Knight,Bullseye and Quick Silver are basically the same.I was more disappointed aboot the size of the hands and the size of the figure it self i thought it would be alot bigger

Im with you Bakit?!, Ripclaw is really tiny compared to my other LCBH figures.

FO punisher isn''t a buffed up Iron Fist. That doesn''t even make sense. I don''t think he''s too small though. He seems accurate for the comics. The Black Panther torso is one of the bigger ones they made. Ripclaw isn''t some huge hulking guy, he''s just a buff dude with claws for hands.
Super Patriot
Legendary Comic Book Heroes (Marvel Toys) - Pitt Series
Rated 4.00 stars by VariablePenguin
SuperPatriot is a character I'm only familiar with because of an issue of Youngblood I read where he fights Die Hard. This figure is very well done and accurate to the comic. Run down: Sculpting - Looks nice. Wires and mechanical parts all look great. His mask looks great, even has a spot at the back where is is tied together and bunches up. Painting - This is one of the drawbacks. The metallic parts, although shaded a little bit, still look kind of flat. Especially his gun arm. His shirt while the right color, you can really see the brush strokes of the dry brushed lighter color. There is also some bleeding in the red stipes on his mask and pauldrons. Articulation - The articulation is great. Like the stuff that came out in the Marvel Legends Sentinel series. Fingers move,...[See More]
Madman
Legendary Comic Book Heroes (Marvel Toys) - Pitt Series
Rated 5.00 stars by VariablePenguin
The first thing I will say about this figure is that he looks like he jumped off the comic panel at me! He is extremely accurate to the comic Madman. Okay the run down: Sculpting - sculpting is great here. His body is detailed enough. Face and hair look great. And the gloves are awesome. Pain - Not much paint on the body, but the subtle blue shadows are great. The lines on the costume are crisp and straight. His exclamation/lightning bolt looks clean. I really like the way the hair is painted because it looks like it was drawn. The same for his face. Articulation - He has the articulation you came to expect from the greatness of the Marvel Legends Sentinel that so many waves fail to live up to. His articulation should be the standard. Overall: Great figure! Comic accurate and...[See More]
Beast (Stealth)
X-Men - 2006 Series (Toy Biz) - Series 1
Rated 5.00 stars by VariablePenguin
I'm actually reviewing the version with the Cat-head. On first look I thought he looked just like a good piece of fodder, until I opened the package: This is a very nice figure. The areas of articulation are plentiful and well placed. I always like when a figure can bend their feet at their toes and their hands at their fingers. The sculpting on this figure is very well done. The detail on his fur and his costume are great. The paint work is very well done with straight lines on all the lined details and with shading and highlighting done appropriately. The "X" on his grenade belt is even straight. The detail on the face is great too. His eyes just pop out and almost have an intelligent quality under all the cat fur. He comes with 2 accessories (or 3 if you count the cord around...[See More]

That doesn''t look like cat head Beast to me. I''m confused.
Wolverine
Marvel Legends (Toy Biz) - Icons - Series 1
Rated 4.00 stars by VariablePenguin
I didn't actually buy this figure, my brother did and he wanted me to give him metal claws. That packaging is very good. It holds up well and is just easy enough to get in to. He's held in with twist ties which is strange from Hasbro as they seem to like to use those little clear rubber bands. Okay, enough about packaging, onto the figure. Wolverine comes in scale to the rest of the Icons. They decided to give him his brown and yellow suit, but instead of it actually being his classic suit, it is his current day Astonishing X-Men suit done brown and yellow. And I must say I like it a lot. His paint is applied fairly well. The dark shade of yellow is very nice. There are areas like around the glove cuffs and around the black on his mask where I needed to go back and smooth out...[See More]
House of M
Marvel Legends (Toy Biz) - Box Sets
Rated 4.50 stars by VariablePenguin
When you see this figure in the box you think of nothing but pity for poor Ben Grimm. This figure looks less ever loving and more like an abused child. From what I've seen of the House of M comics though it seems to catch the likeness quiet well. The sculpt depicts the hulking It and his stoney hide meticulously. Articulation is very good. The only point it is missing in a torso joint that may have been sacrificed in order to keep him hunched over. What I was extremely impressed with was the fact that his fingers have 2 points of articulation. Each. That's right, they bend once at the palm (individually) and then again mid finger. This should be the standard for larger sized figures like this. It removed none of the detail from the figure and allows from some great finger...[See More]

So damn true, one look at it and you just want to look away really quickly because the patheticness of it makes you sick to your stomach. It''s like those poor little puppies at the pound that no one will ever get because they''re so ugly

They did an amazing job on the whole set but this was deffenetly the standout
Annihilus
Marvel Legends (Hasbro) - Annihilus Series
Rated 4.50 stars by VariablePenguin
This BAF actually delivers. I wasn't planning on getting all of the parts until I got the torso with Iron Man and decided, "what the heck." He's no Sentinel, but the character wasn't that big anyway. I think the most impressive thing about him are his wicked cool wings. They ball jointed them so they are really poseable. They are also made of a bendable rubber so that is even cooler. He has very good articulation the only placed I found lacking were at his waist, shins and wrists. I understand the wrists and shins. His armour would have been split in odd places if they had done them there, but his was not turning is just strange to me. Another flaw was his neckpiece. I had to shave it down so that his head wasn't buried down in his chest! But otherwise, this is a great figure....[See More]
Archangel
X-Men - 2006 Series (Toy Biz) - Series 1
Rated 4.50 stars by VariablePenguin
When I saw this figure in the store I thought, "That is the best Archangel figure I've ever seen." I wasn't wrong. The figure has a flawless paint job, which is saying a lot because his costume is very intricate. The figure has the higher standard articulation (hinged fingers!). If only they'd do this to all of those female figures... There are only a few problems. His fingers have some serious excess plastic that needs to be trimmed. His ears look like regular ears when they should be covered in his mask. And finally, the biggest problem: His stupid backpack wing launcher. This thing official changes his name from Angel to Bird. It has tail feather and is a bulk monstrosity. The "missiles" it launches aren't even going to hurt anyone! They're made of some sort of coiled papery...[See More]

Moon Knight
Marvel Legends (Toy Biz) - Series 15 - Modok Series
Rated 5.00 stars by VariablePenguin
I really like this figure. There are very few flaws. First, the body is great for the character, not too big. His paint is awesome. The Grey is a pearly color and the white is also kind of pearly. He comes with a staff, cloak and nunchukas. The nunchukas can be put behind his belt in a little loop. One thing I didn't like was the hole cut in his cloak to allow for a flight stand he didn't come with. Some of the paint on the inside of the cloak is also chipped off. The basic body is in fact a Bullseye, which is apart on the fore arms where you can still see stitching from Bullseye's gauntlets. His hands and feet are also Bullseye parts, but not his wrists or ankles. His head seems to be a variation of Black Panther's head. Overall the figure kicks some butt. I like this grey...[See More]

I finally got one and it rocks, an amazing figure.
Bullseye
Marvel Legends (Toy Biz) - Series 9 - Galactus Series
Rated 5.00 stars by VariablePenguin
Can't believe he hasn't been reviewed! This is one of the best figures released by ToyBiz in the Marvel Legends line in my opinion. Not only is he perfect for customization due to his plainness, he is the best articulated figure around. Every finger moves separately! If only they had kept that concept rolling for the rest of the line... But seriously, there is nothing better than being able to have a villain give the hero the "finger"! Which raises the question: Why didn't Bullseye come with any accessories? He has all of this great hand movement, but nothing to move it around. Nothing throwing knives, cards, or stars are to be seen. The detailing on this figure is awesome though. From the zippers on his gloves and boots to the pockets on his belt and the nails on his leg belt,...[See More]

I absolutely agree. ML outdid themselves w/ this fig but also would''ve BLOWN AWAY any chance of competition if they''d included accessories. W/o a doubt THE BEST bantha poodoo fig as well.
