It helps to have a new hit movie out. Ant-Man and The Wasp were the first two revealed figured for the second Marvel Legends Vintage wave.
I really dig The Wasp figure as it features some smart part reuse including the Marvel Legends Domino head. Like the previous Marvel Legends Wasp, the Vintage figure includes the wings. This costume choice is the big selling point for me as this is a colorful attire and shout out to the Toy Biz variant no one found.

There’s some online complaints about the Pizza Spider-Man body for Ant-Man. Previously, Hasbro used the Bucky Cap body for the Hank Pym figures. This works for me though as this marks the period before he started hanging with Captain America, Thor and Iron Man. I’m not entirely sold on the helmet though and since the Toy Biz version featured one of the best head sculpts, I smell a transplant.
Another cool aspect of these figures is that both contains the mini version of their partner. This is a strong start to the second vintage wave. Hopefully the rest of the figures will be as useful for my collection. What do you think?
