MARVEL LEGENDS

As of March 2020, the Marvel Legends toy line has produced 1,063 figures that have been made available for purchase including single releases, box-sets and build-a-figures.

839 have been produced by Hasbro and 224 have been produced by Toy Biz.

As of March 2020, there have been 69 Build-a-figure waves in the Marvel Legends line.

7 were produced by Toy Biz and 62 were produced by Hasbro.

The Marvel Legends was officially started by Toy Biz in 2002 with Marvel Legends series 1 which included Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk and Toad.  In 2006, Hasbro purchased the license for Marvel Legends and has had the license since that time.

DEFINITIONS

The term BAF is collector jargon for Build-a-figure.

Due to poor distribution and stocking practices by major retailers such as Wal-Mart and Target, Hasbro created what is called a “Fan Channel exclusive”.  The Fan channel exclusive is primarily distributed by online stores such as Big Bad Toy store, Dorkside toys, Entertainment Earth, Amazon and others.

This allows these figures to be sold quicker and faster than they could in big stores although stores like Gamestop and Best Buy have jumped on board with these exclusives.

A grail is a figure that is highly sought after by an individual collector, not necessarily all collectors.

Most of the time, these pieces are more expensive than retail price and sometimes they are hard to find but usually secondary market price and the individuals budget is what stands between the collector and their Marvel Legends grail.

Marvel Legends Juggernaut wave Rogue is a grail for many collectors because she sells for about $120 and she is a main character of a very popular team and a popular era of that team. Many missed out when she was on the shelves at retail.

The term MOC stands for “Mint on card” and MIP stands for “Mint in package”.  These explain that the packaging has never been opened and is in good to great condition.

Note: Once the seal of a package has been broken, it is no longer considered MOC or MIP.  The figure would be considered a loose figure.

The term “Variant” refers to a figure that has an alternate version from the original retail version.

This can be intentionally done by the manufacturer or sometimes there is a running change in the production due to an error, correction or safety concern.

For example: The 2018 Marvel Legends Apocalypse wave Psylocke had both a black hair original version and a purple hair variant version.

A “chase” figure is typically a figure that is included in a series or wave however isn’t advertised.

This hasn’t happened much in the Hasbro era however it was quite common in the Toy Biz era.

For example: In 2004’s Marvel Legends series 6, the green & yellow suit Phoenix was not advertised as being part of the wave. She was the chase figure for that series.

Shipping cases were packed 2 of each per case with the chase figure being packed 1 per case.

There was also a Dark Phoenix Variant that was even harder to find.

Saving FIGURES

Check mark icons are located on each figure card while browsing and on each figure profile.

Click the check mark to save the figure to your “My Collection” page.

The total number of figures will appear in “My Collection”.

Generally, you can click the “checkmark” icon on each figure card to save and remove each figure from your Collection.

However due to our cache system, the best practice for removing figures from your collection is to go to My Saved Figures and remove the figure your want from there. 

This is the database where figures are saved. 

With our system, you can easily remember all of the figures you own when you’re anywhere where you can buy or sell figures. 

Remember your collection at:

  • Conventions
  • Retail stores
  • Just to show your friends
  • Assisting in insurance claims*

*All insurance companies are different however this would help show them which ones you owned in case of a disaster. FigureList does not retain records of the figures you have saved.
