The Marvel Legends range has grown from strength to strength. What does the future hold for the Marvel Legends range? Well who knows, what is certain is that ToyBiz is handing over the Legends baton to Hasbro in the new year. Is this a good move for Marvel Legends? only time will tell, lets hope they keep the clamshell packaging and don't change to card backs.
