Dexter RoonaHasbro Marvel LegendsLeave a Comment

In this new article we delve into the phenomenon of Marvel Legends and offer you our Marvel Legends What If? action figures buyers guide and checklist.

Let’s get started!

We love the Marvel Legends series here at AFG but we much prefer the original ToyBiz figures to those made by Hasbro.

With that said Hasbro is making some pretty cool figures that are highly detailed and the Marvel Legends Series – What If? 6-inch action figures series is no exception to this welcome trend.

The What If? Marvel Legends series is a BAF (build a figure) series where each 6-inch figure contains a piece of another figure.

If you collect all the pieces you can build the BAF figure.

If you collect all the BAF pieces from the What If? series then you can build Uatu The Watcher.

The Marvel Legends What If? series is taken from the popular Disney+ animated series entitled What If?

Marvel Legends Series – What If? Action Figures Buyers Guide

The build a figure series is extremely popular with fans but the big question with any BAF series is do you open the figures and build the BAF because if you are a collector you will probably want to keep them mint in packaging.

The solution of course is to buy a second set to open for the BAF pieces. You can then also display the open figures or you can sell them on eBay for normally very good prices. Another solution is just to scan the auction sites where you can often pick up the BAF pieces at a fraction of the cost of buying a second set.

 

Marvel Legends Series – What If? – T’ Challa Star-Lord 6-inch Action Figure -BAF

The T’Challa Star-Lord looks a bit strange to is here at AFG. He has an awkward strange expression and kind of looks out of proportion.

This figure is still a buy though because you are going to need the Watcher head if you want to build the BAF. T’ Challa Star-Lord features multiple points of articulation possibly too many making him look and feel a bit clunky.

What do you think of the What If? T’ Challa Star-Lord Marvel Legends Hasbro figure?

Marvel Legends Series – What If? – Zombie Captain America 6-inch Action Figure -BAF

Hasbro has done a great job with the Zombie Captain America figure. When you compare him with the T’ Challa Star-Lord you can instantly see what is wrong with the latter.

Zombie Captain America is one of the stand-out figures in the What If? Marvel Legends series carrying mass appeal with both Marvel Fans and casual collectors. If you see one of these Hasbro figures in stores then buy him, as he is sure to be well sought after.

There is no BAF piece included with Zombie Cap but that doesn’t matter it is just a great figure that you should buy.

Marvel Legends Series – What If? – Captain Carter 6-Inch Action Figure – BAF

The Marvel Legends Captain Carter figure is another stand-out for us here at AFG. We love the design and detailing of this figure. The articulation is great, Hasbro has done a pretty good with the What If? Captain Carter.

Captain Carter is one of those figures that looks better on display than mint in the box.

Best be prepared to buy 2 of those awesome figures, i would be looking at loose figures on eBay as a buying option.

Captain Carter has 2 build a figure parts needed to complete the BAF Watcher.

Marvel Legends Series – What If? – Zombie Hunter Spidey 6-Inch Action Figure – BAF

This figure is a pretty good version of Spider-Man and omes complete with masked and unmasked heads, Cape, and interchangeable hands. We much prefer masked versions of Spider-Man so we would lock the maskless head away somewhere safe and display it as the masked version.

Comes with one of the BAF Watcher figures legs.

Marvel Legends Series – What If? – Doctor Strange Supreme 6-Inch Action Figure – BAF

The What If? Doctor Strange Supreme gives us what appears to be an evil, dark arts using a version of Dr. Strange. Is he responsible for the What If…? Zombie apocalypse…? We’ll have to wait and see. The unusual color palette and pale skin definitely make it obvious that this is a Stephen Strange who has been through the wringer, though.
