So, thanks to the blizzard that hit New York last night, we were unable to provide you with the streaming Toy Fair coverage we hoped for. But we did have a photographer there, so you can see the entire showroom photo dump right here. For info about the presentation (and a few select photos), keep reading.

    Y'know what? I'm kind of tired of Marvel Legends.I mean, even disregarding the fact that the distribution and running changes are a joke, and the fact that they seem more obsessed with one shot costumes and newer looks (which I'm not opposed to, but there are more upper-tier characters to be made, and I'd hardly call white Iron Fist or Phoenix force Cyclops "legends"), But it seems like I can never expect the same level of quality across the board. They have scale issues, poor use of parts (like how they're using that piss-poor female body on Phoenix, then show off Emma Frost and Rogue on the new one),good sculpts with crap sculpts, wonky articulation, etc... That's what I like about the DC Classics and its sister lines: they're all sculpted by the 4H, so you know they'll be good, and while Mattel has had a few scale and distribution issues, they're nowhere near as bad as hasbro.
