First off, we have the Marvel Vintage Legends Series! This will be a set of single carded releases in Toy Biz inspired packaging. There are a total of six in this wave: Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Punisher, and Black Widow. Each character will have slight differences in paint, accessories, or sculpt in order to make them more in line with their vintage counterparts. Most notably, Wolverine comes with a new unmasked head and Black Widow appears to be the first comic-inspired version in quite some time.
