    I was talking about the later, pre Marvel legends one. 40 is not that bad for BNIB. I mean yeah it's like 2 times what the original RRP was but still, if I would collect them $40 would be acceptable.

    Yeah it was more late 90s even though it doesn't seem that long ago. Next LC that drops I'm gonna try to pre-order.

    The bottom LC super posable looks better than the top one in many ways, but his shirt looks a little on the orange side, rather than bright yellow.

    Before Spider-Man Classics, the precursor to Marvel Legends, started in 2001, all Toy Biz Marvel figures were in the 5" scale rather than 6", and their articulation was much more limited. That figure hasn't aged well at all, and even if you paid $40 for it (DON'T), it would look like a sad little pipsqueak compared to modern Marvel Legends figures.

    My best advice is to get the Netflix-style Luke Cage/Claire Temple two-pack, and then sell Claire on eBay or something if you don't want her. Most '90s Toy Biz figures just look BAD by today's standards of sculpting and articulation. Whoever is asking $40 won't get it -- there is no demand for most '90s toys the way there still is for '80s toys (G1 Transformers, vintage Star Wars, Super Powers, Secret Wars, etc.)

    Yeah that one is definitely the better figure.

    Yeah Legends definitely took it up a few levels. I was pretty much done buying Marvel figures until that line dropped. Those vintage G.I Joes are pretty popular too Tomax and Xamot are pretty expensive.

    Unfortunately they are packed away so I cannot photograph the back for you.
    I do have pics of the front.
