Really got into Marvel Mego's after my first desert deployment overseas, but the Legends line has pretty much taken over my interest.

I have practically all the Hank Pym Legends/Universe figs (including the Giantman BAF), plus a few Avengers, MarVell (1st Kree uniform), Hydra and Doc Strange.

They're all pretty awesome.., love the FF, but haven't liked the FF sculpts at all surprisingly. They just don't say Silver or Bronze to me at all.

WISH I would have collected the P.A.C.K. figures back in the day, I remember 'em well. LOVE the Kirby art.

Those PACK figures were great. So many cool accessories and interesting characters. I had lots of Big Jim stuff and Dr Steer was a bad guy who came out before the PACK did. They are on my bucket list with Oscar Goldman.

I loved the early Legends stuff and have many of them. I wish I would have got the Giant Man and the Arim Zola build a figure as much as I hate the concept. They should have released them separately after the line had passed.

Yeah, I have my eyes on Mr. Zola as well.

I'd love a Black Widow, but she's too expensive.. One of the two-pack ones, NOT the single pack one with the BIG swivel joint in her throat..

I paid a hundred for Giant-Man. He's heavy but worth EVERY penny. I love his fingers are separately articulated, so ol' Hank Pym can salute Jim Shooter for that miserable wife-beating storyline.

I got my Hawkeye from the Marvel Select line ~ A half-inch taller than Legends figures unfortunately, but he's perfect scale next to my Green Lantern from the O'Neil/Adams 'Travelers line' a few years back. Extremely awesome sculpt, much better than the Legends fig..

Oh wow! Great ads! That Uncanny X-Men ad brings me back! I remember being so happy to finally have a Storm figure.

I always look for the female characters in any line Miss M. When I look around my room here half my figures are girls. 50 of them.

I have a high class First Avengers set that comes with a GIANT MAN and an Ant man. I need to photograph that one tomorrow.
