Marvel Legends 12 - Apocalypse Series

Marvel Legends continue to roll along, and provide collectors with some of the best versions of their favorite characters. Oh, these figures aren't perfect, and some find the uber-articulation annoying rather than exciting, but there's no doubt the line is a hit. The 12th series is now out, called the "Apocalypse" series. And why is it called that? Because this set continues the tradition started with waves 9 and 10, and includes one piece with each of the six figures that you can use to build the full scale Apocalypse figure.

Lets collect them all....!!!

The six figures in the wave are Bishop, Wolverine, Iron Fist, Maestro, Sasquatch, and X-23. Not exactly the A-list, but many of these are fan favorites, and it should be no surprise that the least interesting in concept usually ends up the most interesting in execution. Each figure also comes with a comic book, which is a nice touch but nothing spectacular.






Iron Fist

Packaging - ***
Nothing new here - clamshells, with decent insert cards. There's actually character specific info on the back of each, which gets them some additional brownie points.

Accessories - ****
Here's the thing - most of these figures don't have much in the way of accessories. But they do have one thing in common - the pieces to build Apocalypse. The 'build a figure' (or BAF) concept is certainly not new, and it's not even unique this year. Other companies like Palisades and Mezco have used it recently with solid success. But Toybiz has taken this concept to a whole new dimension with the three BAF's they've done so far - Sentinel, Galactus, and now Apocalypse. These figures are better than any of the 6" characters, with excellent articulation, great sculpts, and bang up paint jobs. I've never recommended that you buy a figure just for the accessories before, but you really should consider it just to get the 'Pocky.

Fun Factor - ***1/2
Kids will love these figures. They aren't going to be recognizable to them, but the character designs are cool enough that it won't make much difference. X-23 might not make much of a hit, but characters like Sasquatch, Maestro and Bishop are just too cool visually not to be fun. Some of the articulation might get frustrating for little kids. I know my son gets a frustrated with Maestro, because he tends to topple over so easily. But in general, these will be loved by any kid looking for new superheroes to add to the arsenal.
