Marvel Legends Series 3 - 2003

The third wave would start to introduce some of the X-Men characters into the Marvel Legends lineup, with Wolverine and Magneto, two of the X-Men’s biggest names. Thor and Ghost Rider would also round out the mix as well as a Movie Daredevil which was added at the end. A mask less Wolverine variant would be the chase of this series. Thor and Ghost Rider would be the tougher ones of the series to find, with Movie Daredevil being the peg warmer.

Daredevil (Movie Ver.)

The movie Daredevil is not one of the better figures in the line. The sculpt is pretty good and a good likeness, but the articulation has a lot to be desired. There is actually two versions of this figure, one with beard stubble and one without. This figure would be the lest selling of the series.

Figure ability: Articulation
Accessories: Stained glass base, Nunchuck

Ghost Rider

Ghost Rider is another nice addition to the series. The detail on the skull and flames is very nice with a lot of detail on the rest of the figure as well. The figure is mostly grey though, which takes away a little bit, but that’s how he did look in the comics. He also comes with a little metal chain that can either go around his body or can be placed in his hands. His base is his motorcycle which is a great touch.

Figure ability: Articulation
Accessories: Chain, Motorcycle base

Magneto would be one of the first remolds that the Marvel Legends line used, as he is a remold of the Iron Man figure from the first line, and his cape is actually a reused cape from the X-Men Evolution Magneto figure. Since he's an Iron Man remold, the high quality of sculpt and articulation carried over from the original Iron Man figure. Still, he did look a little bit like Iron Man since he was a remold. Magneto's helmet is also removable and looks good both on and off. Magneto would come with a damaged Sentinel part, which would start to be a tradition among X-Men characters, as most of them would include a damaged part of a Sentinel.

Figure ability: Articulation
Accessories: Helmet, Sentinel head base

Maskless Wolverine

This is the chase version of the series, as it is the same as the normal Wolverine, but with a newly sculpted maskless head.

Figure ability: Articulation
Accessories: None

Thor was one of the tougher figures to find in this series. He is also much larger than most of the other figures in the line, and just as articulated and detailed as any other figure. He comes with his Hammer which he can hold, but is doesn't stay put sometimes since his fingers are movable. Since his cape is molded from plastic and not articulated, it limits his poseability somewhat. Some people don't like the expression on his face very much, as it kind of looks like he's ready to cry. Still Thor is a great addition to the line.

Figure ability: Articulation
Accessories: Mjolnir hammer, Giant skull base

This Wolverine is actually a remold of an X-Men movie two pack that came with both comic and movie versions of Wolverine much like the first series Toad figure. The original figure had some battle damage which was cleaned up as well as a lot of added articulation. The only complaint I had with this figure is that he's a bit too tall since Wolverine was only supposed to be 5 foot 3 in the comics. He comes with a wall that's been torn down with Hellfire Guards lying everywhere much like the cover to X-Men #133.

Figure ability: Articulation
Accessories: Hellfire gaurd base, Hellfire gaurd base wall
