Collecting Marvel Legends by Teams

We Marvel Legends collectors have a plethora of options when it comes to building own collection. One popular approach is to collect by team, and this is something that I'm leaning towards ATM. This involves collecting figures of characters that belong to a particular team, such as the Avengers, X-Men, or Guardians of the Galaxy. In this article, we'll explore the benefits and challenges of collecting Marvel Legends by team, and show you how Legendsverse can help you keep track of your team-building progress.

Benefits of Collecting Marvel Legends by Team

* Sense of Accomplishment: Completing a team of heroes or villains can provide a great sense of accomplishment. Seeing your favorite characters standing together on your shelf can be a satisfying experience. It's also a great way to showcase your dedication to a particular team.

* Easier to Display: Building a team allows for easier display options. You can pose them together in dynamic and action-packed ways that show off their collective strengths and skills. This can make for a more visually appealing display, especially if you have limited space.

* Cost-Effective: Collecting by team can be more cost-effective than collecting figures without a clear goal. Collecting by team will help you scope your purchases, and push you to only get the figures that you need to complete the Teams you want to collect, and you can avoid the temptation to buy every single figure that catches your eye. This can help you save money and focus on completing your team.

Challenges of collecting Marvel Legends by teams.

  1. Difficulty Finding Rare Figures: Some teams may have figures that are harder to find or more expensive than others. This can make completing the team more challenging and frustrating. You may have to resort to buying figures from resellers or paying a premium for rare figures.
  2. Lack of Diversity: Collecting by team may limit your overall collection diversity. You may end up with multiple versions of the same character from different teams, rather than exploring the full range of characters and storylines. This can be a drawback if you're interested in having a more diverse collection.
  3. Space Limitations: Building a large team can take up a lot of space, which may be a challenge if you have limited display room. You may have to be selective in which teams you choose to collect, or find creative ways to display your figures.
