Marvel Legend Giant Man Series


hello there...I would like to share the old figures about Marvel Legend series, after the last Apocalypse series right now it is turn for Giant Man series. lets rock...!!

The Giant Man series consists of Havok, Kitty Pryde, Age of Apocalypse Wolverine, Age of Apocalypse Sabertooth, Captain Britain, Ant Man, Warbird, Sentry, and Thor. There are two well known variants, pictured on the back of the card, of a bearded Sentry and bald Wolverine. I haven't found the variants, of course, but the other nine are up for tonight's review.


If you're a fan of Marvel Legends, than the sculpts here won't surprise you in the least. If you have hated past ML waves, then there's nothing about this one that's going to change your mind.

They've done a very nice job with her sculpt. Unlike some of the manly female characters we've seen in more recent waves, Warbird is downright cute, with a great facial sculpt, expression and hair. The hair's a bit big, and sculpted as a separate piece, but that means they were able to use a softer plastic, allowing the neck articulation to work a little better with the long hair.


Giant Man is a character that has been begging for the Build-a-figure treatment since the concept was started. The Giant Man figure from the 5 inch scale Avengers box set made a reasonable stand-in. It even warranted a repaint to get an off model Goliath figure. But here we have a real Marvel Legends scaled, fully articulated figure that is on model. With forty six points of articulation, he can be posed as well as any Marvel Legends figure. The use of ratcheting joints helps the figure to support the extra weight. The only real draw back is putting him together. Unlike previous BAF's that were composed of six or seven pieces, you need ten pieces to build Giant Man. If you are having trouble with the math, there's a good reason for it. There are ten pieces needed to complete Giant Man but only nine characters in the series. You have to buy either version of Sentry, both versions of Weapon X and the other seven figures to complete the good Doctor Pym. Fortunately the variants are easier to come by than with previous waves, but this does make it even harder and much more expensive to be able to make use of the build-a-figure feature.

From right to left : Apocalypse, Galactus, Giant Man, and Sentinel

While these figures might have some issues here and there, there's not doubt that the make for great toys. Sometimes the articulation is actually too much for kids, and some of these characters might leave them cold, but the overall concept and general execution proves once again that an action figure can be a great toy, and still look cool on the shelf.
