With the unmasked head, I think they’re going for the look of Peter when he first came back from the Secret Wars in ASM #252. (First regular issue appearance of the black costume).

Also, that issue prominently featured him sporting the blue foot look.

I'd like to get that figure and try to recreate this panel.

Yip, it's stated that this is from Secret Wars. https://hobby.dengeki.com/news/1348033/

I like that they included the web backpack accessory.

I haven't been impressed with Mafex's Marvel comic figures but I may need to pull the trigger on this one...

I'm amazed that tiny palm peg and clear tiny arm that attaches the effect to the peg on Gambit holds up those big, swooping card effects. Seems like the peg or arm would break.

I really didn't see Mafex coming and replacing my Legends blue team.

HLJ got my payment for Gambit. I hope their release date of Oct 31 for Psylocke is accurate too, then I can ship the two together.

Argh...I'm really, really happy with my Mezco Gambit, but these pics are making it hard to sit this one out.

Gambit is looking fantastic. Jacket will likely need some futzing , I'm hoping once you get used to it like their Hush Batman cape, it flows naturally and becomes part of the fun. Easily the best 1:12 Gambit headsculpts, can't wait to see the master posers start putting this guys articulation and drama to the test. Also interested in what 3rd party jackets will eventually be made for him.

So in the last 4 weeks we’ve had AoA magneto, Hush, Gambit and now Gwen all show up as in stock and subsequently ship out? Is this a precursor of what’s to come from Mafex? Is the dam finally breaking here?

I wish we’d get an accurate release schedule so we can know whether to combine orders. If I had known all those were releasing within a month, I’d have waited to ship.

Gambit looks like how I picture ML4 Gambit in my mind's eye. That was one of my first Legends figures, and one of my favorite Toy Biz figures, so that's definitely a good thing.

I will not under any circumstances go back and look at actual photos of Toy Biz Marvel Legends Gambit.

Got my Gambit notification/payment confirmation.

Clicking on the item listing link in my email shows this:



Item discontinued. Not expected to come back in stock.
Is that normal for a item that is newly released but sold through on pre-orders? Most released/pre-release Mafex figures are either shown as "in stock", "order stop", "out of stock", or "back ordered".



Searching "gambit" on the site gets me this lone result, no Mafex Gambit:



Strange that other figures that are out of stock still show up in search results.
Doesn't bode well for obtaining a Psylocke. Wish I hadn't drug my feet on it for so long....

Gwen also has the discontinued status. I made a late decision and decided I'd like her as a stand alone figure. I preordered on 9/20, but she didn't drop into my Private Warehouse with Gambit. I should reach out to HLJ to see if they have more coming to cover their remaining orders.
