Yea, I only saw them at TRU. But were those 2-packs exclusives? I can't remember.

From what I understand most independent retailers received their orders this week.

Arnim Zola looks out of scale...but if scale is right, this would be a total let down in terms of BAF selection. Rather, Hasbro could have released him as a regular fig in a wave and not wasted a BAF slot

Re: Marvel Legends 2012

Zola isn't actually out of scale (in general, though the scale varies pretty wildly). So ya, he is really small for a BaF, though I guess he uses some pretty unique parts, and I suppose if they have to make unique and new molds they're likely going to reserve that figure for a BaF. But honestly, other than the torso, I think Zola's parts could have been used for many normal sized characters, like say his legs for Ronan. Some also argue that casual fans wouldn't pick him up, but I say if they're willing to pick up someone like Klaw, they'll definitely go for Zola, who's basically a chunky robot. A running change to his Red Skull head would also have allowed the rest of the figure to be the appropriate black colour, rather than just being Zola with a Red Skull face. Either way, I'm hoping this trend of small BaFs doesn't last, even if it's for sought after characters that wouldn't normally make it into the line as a single carded figure, they coud always just be put in a two pack or something. I'd much rather large figures like Terrax (8"-10") and maybe even the occasional really big character like Fin Fang Foom.

Re: Marvel Legends 2012

what's the ratio of the series 1 figures (in terms of how many are packed...don't really know how else to ask this question lol)

Re: Marvel Legends 2012

1 of each and 2 Iron Man per case. Regular figures and the variants come in cases individual of each other, at least so far (so no orange GR and normal Iron Man, it would be orange GR and blue Iron Man).
