    Thats stange, I did a search for a dedicated Marvel Legends thread, but there isn't one! Must have got deleted way back just before Toyfair.

    Anyway, my question is about the Apocalypse Series X-23. There are two versions of her, one black (better looking IMO, and the one I have) and a big lipped purple version.

    Why are there 2 versions, each with different head/hair sculpts? Is is a variant? Chase? Other? The problem with ML these days is there are too many chases and varients per series now, I remember when Unmasked Wolverine was the only Varient to get.

    Anyhoo, an answer would be great!

    I believe officially, Toybiz said the purple one was the variant. However, production for both was pretty even.
    When the wave first hit, certain areas received the black version, and others received the purple. I've seen both regularly around here.
    I have both, but the black version is a bit better. The purple looks like my daughter's Bratz doll.

    Anybody know where I can find a dedicated ML sightings thread (on here or elsewhere). I've done some google searches and have yet to find anything useful and reliable. I'm trying to find the Giant Man wave and I'm getting sick of wasting gas needlessly. Thanks!

    Yeah, I can confirm that...the purple X-23 is the varient. And I agree - both versions of the toys seem to be in equal numbers.

    Ahahaha! The left arm of X-23 broke off like Play doh!

    Looks like I'll be on a trip back to TRU soon. I thought the first Fantastic Four Invisible Girl figure looked flimsy, but its completely fine, yet this newer one, which looked more robust broke within a day!

    Crazy. Still, its to be expected about Toybiz figures, I don't wanna get started but my last three ML's have been quite shoddy really.

    The messageboard isn't nearly as active as this one, but the guys there do pretty well with listing sightings.

    I just need Warbird and I'm set.. Going hunting for her tommorow. Got a Hot Wheels guy looking too. We see each other at Target and talk.. Nice guy. He is not a scum bag who find all the rare ones to sell on Ebay. If he finds the rare ones he get them all and then sells them at cost to his buddies so the scalpers can't get them..
