    So with the speculation that prices are going to creep up in the next year or so, what are you guys still needing to be released for your collections? For me I would really like to see:

    Classic Excalibur team finished(Phoenix, Blue Shadowcat,Classic Captain Brittan, Megan)
    Classic Doctor Strange
    Byrne era Banshee
    Classic Havok
    Outback Rogue
    Armored Psylocke
    A better Classic Hawkeye
    Classic Sandman upgrade
    Early 90s neo armor Iron Man
    Longshot
    High Evolutionary
    Classic Shocker
    Classic Lizard
    Cardiac (according to Bobby Vala this figure will never be made by Hasbro, something about Erik Larsen)
    Classic Kang
    Classic Wonder Man(Safari Jacket?)
    Classic Beta Ray Bill
    Classic Hercules
    Classic Magik
    Classic Moonstar
    Danny Ketch Ghost Rider
    90s Blade
    Classic Ms Marvel on a new super posable female buck
    maybe Whedon/Cassaday Astonishing Xmen

    ...and probably a few more and I would be done with legends.

    People have been speculating prices were going to go up since last year and it still hasn't happened. In fact, hasbro originally said if the tariff thing happened the figures would only go up to $21 something, but it didn't.

    No chance of getting Cardiac makes me sad. I really like the character and Spider-Man related characters are my favorite to collect. The MacFarlane/Larsen era was my favorite run on Spider-Man.

    I think the only people so far to have a $1 to $2 price increase are EE and Amazon (the latter of which is completely random on which figure has it, and sometimes only for a brief period). But yeah, across the board it has remained steady so far, but I wouldn't be surprised if it showed up closer to Christmas.

    Same here, Bobby Vala said it on the Infinity Equation Podcast on YouTube a few months back. He said it was some kind of weird rights thing with Larson. I thought it was weird because it is a Marvel character, but he said he pushed for the figure to be made and was told we cannot make this figure.

    when I went they weren’t out, they were waiting for the transition, whatever that is. Use the popfindr link and if they say they have 6, ask them to look in the back.

    New versions of Ka-Zar, Sheena and Zabu. It's been too long since their SDCC versions. Probably once again as a single set, probably priced similarly like the 2-packs that had at least one larger figure like Hulk and Juggernaut so you can have 2 regular sized human figures and a fully articulated Zabu. And probably an exclusive so they don't have to compromise on their lack of clothing. I wouldn't want another convention exclusive, but something like a Amazon online exclusive, yeah absolutely. Also, after making female figures like Thundra and Grey She-Hulk the last couple of years, I would expect at least a decent amount of sculpted muscle on a modern Sheena figure.

    I also have to wonder what the chances are of getting a Marvel Legends version of Conan considering his usage in the 616 Marvel Universe since his return. His toy licensing seems all over the place these days between Super7 and Mezco.

    I hope we get these 2 long before lack of retail support possibly kills off the rider assortment. Hasbro really should’ve kicked off the line with those 2(aside from Blaze).

    If prices go up, I’ll just wait for them to go down to around $10 on clearance like I usually do. Only things I really want from ML are Alan Davis Excalibur team and Mangog. Of course, I’ll keep buying pretty much all of them in the meantime.

    Agreed. I keep hoping the next assortment will announce these two. I'm kind of surprised that the retail support for Riders hasn't died already. They either don't show up locally or the ones that do are the less desirable characters who sit for months. I remember with the first wave it was impossible to find Ghost Rider, but Black Widows would sit and collect dust. I've never seen Prof X at retail, but the 99th Deadpool could be obtained pretty easily. After the most recent reset, I don't think my local Target is even carrying the line anymore.

    For what it's worth, I've had pretty good success using the NECA clear stands with my Marvel Legends figures.

    NECA Action Figure Display Stands (Pack of 10)

    The pegs can be a little thin sometimes so a small strip of tissue paper around them holds the figure very securely. And the stands are pretty easy to find in the NECA section at Target. Worth checking them out.
