As you can see,they hold their own when standing next to Marvel Universe figures and fit nicely scale wise.

Marvel Legends Showdown 3 3/4 - Magneto
Yes,I'm still on my Marvel Universe grind people!Recently I was able to sell off some DOTM Transformers In order to continue filling out my Marvel Universe shelf.Of course Magneto Is a must have ,but I wasn't about to shell out most of what I made off my TF sale for his Marvel Universe figure.So I took the Marvel Legends Showdown route.For those of you not hip to the Showdown line,they are some of the first 3 3/4 ,highly articulated Marvel action figures ever to be released.Some came individually carded and others came In two packs.These figures were hit and miss.Some of the sculpts looked great for some characters while others looked downright scary.Don't believe me?Click here. Also,some of the skinnier characters suffered from loose limb syndrome.So be warned If your looking to these figures to hold a place In your Marvel Universe collection.Lately I've been on this X-Men kick and I've been wanting to add some more mutants to my collection.Magneto has been high on my want list.But I wasn't about to pay 20 plus bucks for his Marvel Universe figure.Luckily I came across an ebay listing for a Showdown as well as a 90's Toybiz Magneto for 12 bucks and some change shipped!I knew I'd be taking a chance because you never know what your going to get with these Showdown figures.But I figured,If the Showdown Magneto Is a loss,I still have the 90's Toybiz version of him ,which to me Is worth the 12 bucks alone. Well,I got lucky.Both figures came In awesome shape,and If you ask me,the Showdown Magneto Is much nicer looking than the Marvel Universe one.
