    I pre-ordered movie jacket Wolverine.

    Since I had this figure growing up:

    Plus I enjoyed the movies.

    It seems to satisfy both wants.

    It's Prime from the Ultraverse published by Malibu Comics. Malibu was later purchased by Marvel and continued to publish Ultraverse titles for a while. Prime was a 13 year kid that could transform into Prime, but unlike DC Captain Marvel didn't gain the wisdom of Solomon, so he still acted like a kid pretending to be an adult. The books were well written for their time.

    In short, yes. It poses in ways that pizza Spidey can’t, the only area where pizza Spidey poses better is with the elbows(deeper bend). Retro Spidey is also more sturdy(especially when comparing the butterfly joints).

    NOT to mention the awesome art from Breyfogle. RIP.

    Nowadays Marvel won’t let anyone use any of those characters. They must have made a bad deal where they have to pay royalties or something.

    Nah, it's just no one cares and there's not enough profit in it. The only reason they even bought Malibu was for their digital coloring techniques and to keep DC from buying them and overtaking their market share. No one ever actually gave a shit about the Ultraverse at Marvel.

    I loved Breyfogle art in the books.

    Yeah, you are correct about the bad deal... back in the early 2000's they were going to bring a lot of the characters into the 616 universe including Prime.

    Right. Hickman said the same thing when he took over Avengers. I asked if he could use Ultraverse characters in the book and he said he asked and was told he couldn't.

    Looks like a 2-pack Havok body painted black without the belt piece with a Tony Stark head.

    I forgot mine were packed the same way. They really got better at considering these to be collectibles.

    Some are finding him but mostly on the west coast areas I believe it is (dont quote me on that). I dont want the moon knight but I do check walgreens and neither of the ones i checked the last few days have had anything new. In fact they are getting bare bones on legends. One had a namor and the other had some Medusa and antman figures. Pretty lackluster.

    I was at two stores where 1-3 Cables was their entire Marvel Legends selection. Thanks so much for not shipping my preorder yet Walmart.

    Remember when stores used to have more than one item at a time? I do but the picture is starting to fade into the mists of time.

    One to three Cables?! That's a huge Marvel selection! My local Walmart's Marvel section is Jurassic World toys.

    Purchased Kingpin off mercari for $38 after shipping and tax.

    They offered $20 off a $50 or more app purchase.

    From Amazon today after a preorder, then an arriving early notice, then a delay notice, to a ship notice, and finally a partridge in a pear tree.
