    Well, a lot more people have been Spider-Man, but Batman has a lot more looks. So if you were to limit it to only Peter Parker or only classic colors, Batman would probably win. I'm not sure if you were to include the others.

    I can think of in recent memory:

    Spider-Man (Just Marvel Legends, just 6 inch) - 20
    Five MCU Spideys (Civil War 3 pack, Homecoming 2 pack, Web Wings, Homemade, Iron Spider)
    ANAD 2099
    Punk
    Noir
    Ultimate
    Ultimate (Miles)
    Pizza
    Vintage
    Spider-Carnage
    ANAD 2-Pack Spidey
    Comic Vulture 2-Pack Spidey
    Black Suit
    Spider Britain
    That Captain Universe Spider-Man
    SDCC Raft Spider-Man
    Original 2099

    Batman (Mattel and DC Collectors) - 24
    5 or so Movie Batmen (BvS, Trench Coat, Armored, JL, Walmart Exclusive JL)
    At least 3 comic Batmen from the DC Universe Collect and Connect line (DKR, Zero Year, and the Justice Buster CnC figure).
    3 Icons Batmen (Classic, Rebirth pack, Rebirth single)
    5 Batman TAS figures (Season 1, Season 4, Phantasm 2 Pack with new head, fabric cape, and accessory pack)
    A lot of Designer Series (Capullo x5, Bermejo, Lee, Cook, to name a few)

    I'm ignoring the various gimmicky "Heat Shield Batmans" and "Arctic Parachute Spider-Mans" because please, kill me. Even so, Batman's still well ahead.

    If you're talking "all-time", Batman wins by a mile. All those Kenner Batman figures in the late 80's and early 90's... so many decos, so many horrible costumes.

    Ice Blast Electric Grapple Stealth Wing Scuba Armor Batman... for the win.

    Read that the new IW MCU Iron Man is the best Iron Man MCU ML armor so far due to range of movement.

    I dunno but to me most of the IW designs aren't very exciting. Spider-Man grew on me a bit. To me they didn't really need costume changes.

    Agreed, but you gotta have a reason to make all that new merch. That's so much of the money made from these films. To quote Yogurt: "Merchandising! Where the real money of the movie is made!"

    Yeah... Taskmaster is all I really want out of this wave. But I'm sure I will probably complete it eventually.

    I don't really see it. It doesn't have connected shoulder pads so the arms can go all the way up, but neither does the 46 and or 47. It has ankle tilts. But isn't that it?

    It's also got the modern style hips which makes it leaps and bounds better than any of the MCU IM figures with those crappy old school hips.

    Ha, I love how we refer to it as "modern" even though GIJoe has been using a ball-ended t-bar since 1982 (and in some late 70's/early 80's 3.75" Mego figures as well). Any time I see toybiz or early Hasbro ML hip joints (and I have a lot of them), I just want to throw the figure in the river.

    Why did it take a decade for this line to adopt a vastly superior 30-year-old hip design, made popular by.... Hasbro? At the very least, it should have been on the very first Hasbro Legends figures from day one. It's maddening.

    You know... I hadn't even thought of that before, but you're right. Hasbro themselves had been using this hip design with GI Joe for years! What the heck Hasbro?! I guess it just goes to show that when something works you don't need to reinvent the wheel. :)

    All I want to know is, can it do the three point landing pose? Invincible can. War Machine comes close, minus the ankles.

    I have to admit, every time I see you use this word to announce an acquisition, I have to do a double-take. I've never heard that term ever used without being followed by "a feel". To see it applied to toys is bizarre ;)

    TrU is having a BOGO 50% OFF on which appears to be Marvel items.

    So hit up those TrUs to pick up them new or old Legends. If you already have and bought them within the last 2 weeks(?), you should be able to get a price adjustment.
