Marvel Legends Galactus Series (Series 9) - 2005



This series would be the first series not to be labeled as "Series 9" but as the "Galactus Series". The reason for this is also another first; instead of figure bases, each figure comes with a piece of Galactus that can be snapped together to form a full figure if you have all the pieces. This is a neat idea of getting out some of the larger figures that wouldn’t probably be able to be sold on their own. The large figure is just as articulate as the smaller ones. The lineup of characters is kind of odd with a few odd choices, like Deathlok and 1st Appearance Hulk, but they were still good figures.

1st App.Hulk (Green Variant)


This Hulk chase is just the same figure, only in Green with a new grinning head. He also comes with the same left arm of Galactus that the normal figure did.

Figure ability: Articulation
Accessories: None

1st Appearance Hulk


This was another odd choice for a figure but I guess we never really got too many normal gray Hulks. This figure is how Hulk looked when he first appeared way back in the Incredible Hulk #1. The face is very Kirby-esque and is a very large figure as he stands much taller than any other Marvel Legend to date. The figure has greenish highlights on him which does look a bit odd. He also really doesn't have a lot of detail since when he was drawn that way back then they really didn't give him a lot of detail in the comics. It would have been cool if he would have come with the ripped lab coat like the chase Hulk from series 2 did. He does come with the left arm of Galactus though.

Figure ability: Articulation

Bullseye


Bullseye would get a figure as well as a chase in this series as well. The figure would use an all new body, which was a great sculpt too. His head is a bit too big though. Still, the level of detail in his figure and articulation makes him a great figure. He comes with the left leg of Galactus, some guns or something to throw would have been a nice addition to include though.

Figure ability: Articulation
Accessories: None

Bullseye (Grinning Variant)


This chase is just the normal figure with a grinning face. The white is also a bit darker on this figure. He comes with the same left leg of Galactus the normal figure did.

Figure ability: Articulation
Accessories: None

Deathlok


Deathlok was a very odd choice for a figure, as he really hadn't been in the comics for awhile. The figure however is kind of cool which a nice shiny red paint job. He comes with a gun that's attached to his chest though via a hose which is kind of odd. He comes with the upper torso of Galactus.

Figure ability: Articulation
Accessories: None

Dr. Strange


Dr. Strange made his way into this series as well. His cape is very big on this figure and made from the same soft plastic that a lot of other capes had been made out of as of late. The figure is pretty well detailed as well and looks great. He comes with the right arm of Galactus.

Figure ability: Articulation
Accessories: Cape

Galactus


This is the figure you can get when you snap together all the parts that came with all the figures in this line. Galactus is very well articulated and detailed, and you can’t really tell that he was a snap together figure. The only complaint I had with this figure, is his skirt thing doesn’t allow his legs to move all that much, which limits his articulation. His arms, torso, legs, and head though move in a variety of ways, just like any other Marvel Legend figure. He really adds to this line as a bonus to buying all the figures.

Figure ability: BAF, Articulation
Accessories: None

Nightcrawler


Nightcrawler finally gets a figure in Marvel Legends series 9. It was rumored he was supposed to have a figure in the canceled X-Men Classics series 2 but no proof ever showed. Nightcrawler's figure is very well done and is a great likeness of him. His tail is the soft plastic like his older figures so it can be posed in a variety of ways and his fingers and toes can move separately. The face on him isn't quite right though. He comes with the lower torso of Galactus. I would have liked to see him come with a rapier as well.

Figure ability: Articulation
Accessories: None

Professor X


Professor Xavier was another nice X-Man addition to this series. The figure is a heavily modified movie figure body with new arms, legs, and head, and it's actually very articulated for a character who usually can't walk. He comes with a slightly remolded wheelchair from the X-Men movies figure. The figure is very well done in that he's not a huge figure since he really didn't do that much physical stuff in the comics. He is dressed in a suit and tie and looks very much like a normal person instead of a superhero. He comes with a Cerebro helmet too which really adds to the figure. He was originally supposed to have a chase figure with a new head a black suit and a hover chair but it got scrapped. He comes with the head of Galactus as well.

Figure ability: Articulation
Accessories: Wheelchair, Cerebro helmet

War Machine


War Machine would be the Iron Man remold that everyone would be waiting for. His figure is very well done and features a few new things not seen on any Marvel Legend before. He comes with removable fire that can be placed in his gun, feet and hands to look as though they are firing in an action pose. He also comes with missiles that are look as though they are firing. The facemask is also removable, just like all the Iron Man figures. He also comes with the right leg of Galactus.

Figure ability: Articulation
Accessories: Figure stand, Mask, Flame burst x2, Flame burst, Firing missles, Flame burst x2, Missle turret
