Finally got a chance to watch the livestream—such cool reveals. They are all must-haves for me. 

Danny Ketch Ghost Rider and his bike look really cool. Love the flame effects. 

Awesome news about Odin and Hulkbuster Iron Man!

I've now watched the livestream four times. I'm extremely excited for these reveals. I truly am glad I'm a whole Marvel Universe, Marvel Legends fan.

Really hyped up for the '90s Ghost Rider.  That's been one of my most wanted figures since I restarted collecting about eight or nine years ago.

 

 

The rest are passes for me.  They look good, just not interested in collecting those.  The Wolverine is tempting because of the new articulation, but I'll wait for them to reuse this body on his tiger-stripe or brown suit costumes instead.

Hah, normally, if I miss the live stream, usually the still and glam photos are enough for me to get the information. But I too watched the full live stream, and it was definitely worth it. Don't know if I need a rewatch, let alone three more times, but it was definitely informative and exciting to see the reveals. My favorite part was Dan shaming the other two for not knowing the "Akira Slide."

If I can't catch the "live" part of the stream I usually try to watch it before I go check out any photos - it's fun to see figures revealed that way, and I know I'll be studying the still photos for months until the figures actually come anyway. I find the ML trinity dudes very charming in their own awkward sort of way too - I always enjoy watching them.

Plus, there's always some things in the stream that are hard to capture. Their exchange about the other unrevealed Wolverine gave me the vague impression that there was something amusing or different about the figure - although maybe they were just laughing about how much Dan has been teasing additional Wolvie figs since the anniversary program was first revealed.

With the new Superior Spider-Man extra legs, the way that they are, maybe we can get Steel-Spider, now?

What an amazing show.  Not a Warbird fan, but glad to see many others happy.  I am likely in for all the rest.  I actually loved that Superior Spider-man run and dig this toy.  Wolverine and Ghost Rider especially are my faves.

 

Can't wait for Hulkbuster and Odin, only Ghost Rider could outrank them.

 

I really want a Rockslide figure......unless that's a Secret Wars diorama..

Yeah this Iron Fist seems to be based on a modern design.  Its close but not close enough.

Not getting Superior Spider-Man but the reflection in his lenses was a pretty cool idea.

Would be rad if they could manage to put Spidey in Doc Ock's lenses!

The Legends team really crushes these anniversary events, don't they? Everything is incredibly tempting, especially Ghost Rider. I don't have any connection to the character, either. GR just embodies the "toyetic design."

Only Wolverine for me. At least, that's all I plan to get now. I agree with Robo's assessment about the yellow patches on his boots and gloves. I prefer the design without those elements. I'm sure they'll re-release him without, but I'll grab this one just in case. I legitimately can't wait to re-buy brown-costume Wolverine on this body (sans the piping, of course).

Do we think that the rumored Destiny and Mystique 2-pack will be a part of this program?

@fingfangfoom I would happily take either of those looks.

@mentalmanipulator I don't know, but I'm itching to see it. Last year Spiral and Chamber put a big dent in my top 5 wants, and I really thought Psylocke and Destiny would come close to closing it out this year. Psylocke ended up not being the Outback look, so I'm eagerly (but nervously) awaiting Destiny. As for number 5, I'm not holding my breath on Senyaka any time soon.

Yeah I was very happy to get Chamber and Monet, hoping for the rest of Generation X sooner or later. Kind of wonder if this is going to be the same costume as the Walgreens Mystique assuming the Destiny/Mystique 2 pack rumor is true (which I'd say likely is at this point). For those who might not remember there was also a black suit Mystique in 2012 or so. The card art is kind of cool since it has Dani Moonstar on it even though Dani wasn't released til much later lol.
