By the time I was collecting 6 inch was pretty much the standard. I checked last night after I posted and I can't believe what a lot of the Universe versions of the Legends I have go for. For instance Ms. Marvel costs what I paid for my 6 inch version and I just can't justify that. I'm with you though, I took some pictures of Captain America fighting alongside Hawk and it was a blast. If they relaunch the line I may dive in but it would have to be guaranteed I could fill my avengers/villain ranks like I have with Legends.

Yeah, I recently had a discussion with someone on IG about the prices of the Universe figures now. I still have a good deal in their package, and have contemplated selling them to help my collecting addiction. Most of my collection is opened with their packaging long since discarded. I do have a few of the rarer carded Thor movie figures that could fetch a buck or two, but I'll probably just open those too.

The villain line is somewhat lacking, especially considering the number of rehashes a lot of the main heroes got. I try to use my faceless Cobra armies to use as stand ins for good battle scenes. I got great joy from having my 5" movie Hulk figure (which seems the most accurate for 3 3/4 scale) attacking a dozen BATs, or having Captain America using his shield to run into a squad of Vipers firing at him.

I hear ya. I never really got into the 6 inch figures though. I was a kid that grew up in the 80's, so the 3 3/4 scale was the only scale I really knew. Once I became 'too old' to play with toys, I let my collection go. Around '04, I began to see the Joe vs. Cobra line show up in stores and it rekindled my love for those figures and I found myself rebuying most of the figures I had from my childhood through eBay. I saw the Marvel Legends line showing up in stores, and even bought some to trade with others for more 3 3/4 figures, but they just didn't do it for me. The overall larger size seemed to limit them and what kind of accessories/playsets/vehicles you could have. The Legends Showdown series was nice, but had a lot of wonky proportions for some of their figures. By time the Marvel Universe line came around I had amassed hundreds of figures from various 3 3/4 lines and was ecstatic to add Marvel figures to my own universe. It was a dream of mine to have Deadpool side by side with Snake Eyes. The Merc with a mouth slicing and dicing through enemies with the silent Joe ninja commando. When Hasbro decided to kill the line, I was in the middle of moving to a smaller house and didn't have room for a lot of figures anyway, so I wasn't too heartbroken. I moved on to collecting Hot Wheels because they were an even smaller scale and I could display more in less space. Now that I'm in a new house, I finally have my own man cave area to display my figures and I'm looking forward to building worlds (like you mentioned). I just really wish there were more figures out there to fill out my universe. Maybe Hasbro will decide to give us a 'retro' 3 3/4 Universe line in the future. That would be nice, but I believe it would just be rehashes of figures they already made. But one can hope.

I adore 4 inch scale. Nothing is better for world building than 3 3/4. I started collecting toys with marvel legends and a few years later started collecting 25th Joes. It ruined me. I wanted to switch all my legends over to universe but it was just too much money to switch scales. I have bought several and I love it. I hate that Joe is in 6 inch and the new 4 inch figures are just rehashed figures. I really wish I'd done Universe instead.

No one has any love for these figures anymore? These were always my favorites, especially since they could be intermingled with other lines like my GI Joes. Of course, now it looks like everything has gone to the 6" scale, including my Joes. It really is sad to me, especially since I have recently moved and found a lot of the figures I had stored away due to lack of room. I hope to start posting more pics of my collection again soon, and that is a big reason why I came back to these forums after so long.

Were back in action 4 figures based on the new AVENGERS game! Now we wait!

Haven't been here for days, good memories but I'm back...........except I've too jumped ship to the 6inch line. On the fence about selling my collection, probably will because i doubt this line will come back to this scale. But who knows, glad some of y'all still here and I'll still be lurking....
