Marvel Legends, is its return good or bad?
But is bringing back Marvel Legends a smart choice for the company? My answer would be no. And here is why.
|Series 1 Marvel Legends|
|Sentinel Series with BAF |
(notice the size of Sentinel's leg)
And now, look at the renewed Marvel Legends, the only thing that's improved is that the some figures looked better than the old ones and that it comes with a colorful package; however, no comics, no game cards and of course no beautiful backdrop, what a bummer.
On top of that, the BAF included is a less interesting villain in the first two series after the renewal and they already are being shortened in height as they only stand a little taller than other figures, not twice as tall like the old ones. Also, it starts to include less familiar characters like protector or moonstone and even someone like Sentry who died a long time ago, some may say you know the character well, but the truth is, if you are not a comic fan, you wouldn't know who the heck protector is. Also, variants nowadays does not only mean a slightly difference between characters, but sometimes it is even a different character, for example Punisher and Blade is regarded as the same figure as they are in the same 'category'. meaning that if someone buy a set, you will not be able to get all the different characters.
|Returning Marvel Legends (no BAF, just figure stand...)|
As for the final reason why I don't like the new Marvel Legends, the old ones cost half as much as the new ones, can't believe that can you.
