The Marvel Legends line of action figures made its return earlier this year. The line first started in 2002. The last main line was in 2008 followed by some department store exclusive lines. I debated over the figures from this line but thought it was time to check one out.

This week we're going to look at the Ghost Rider figure.

If you haven't been reading or following Ghost Rider the past few years, you might notice he looks a little different. Rather than the normal colored flames, this one is blue. That means that this is the Dan Ketch version which, in my opinion, makes it quite a bit cooler.

It is a little weird that there is no clear mention that this is Ketch. We know because of the color but even the back offers no information.

If you haven't seen this line, you can see that Steve Rogers, Hope Summers, Iron Man, Klaw, Constrictor and Thor are also in the line. Buying them all allows you to build your own Terrax.

Here's the parts of Terrax you get. If you don't get all, it's kind of sad and creepy to just have random body parts lying around.

Ghost Rider looks pretty cool in the packaging but actually looks quite a bit cooler once you take him out. You can click each image for a larger look.

You can see that action figure flame technology has improved. This isn't the first Ghost Rider figure we've had but this looks pretty sweet. Especially with the light shining on it.

What about those other Ghost Rider figures?

What's cool about this Ghost Rider figure is his head glows in the dark. That is perfectly fitting since GHOST RIDER #15 from 1991 had a glow-in-the-dark cover.

Of course we can't forget the Super Hero Squad figure. At least that one came with an actual motorcycle.

It's understandable that the Marvel Legends figure can't come with a motorcycle but Ghost Rider without one seems a little weird. Still, it's a pretty cool looking figure. What do you think?

Next week we'll take a look at another LEGO set. Stay tuned!

I've been looking everywhere for the blue flame version. I picked this exact figure up from Target about 7 months back, but it is in the traditional orange flame. I want the this even more after seeing how cool it looks in the pictures above.

Frikkin' wish Ghost was blue full time. Or else have Marvel Select make a Ketsch variant GhostRider. Now that'd be the figure to get!

I hope Ghost Rider joins the new Marvel Now Thunderbolts team. That book looks sick and I think Ghost Rider (Alejandra, Ketch or Blaze) would make an awesome addition. Anyway the Ketch figure is terrific.

I just saw this last night at Target. They actually had all of the first wave. Never really been a Ghost Rider fan.

Kind of disappointing that they didn't mention that it was Danny Ketch, since not everyone knows about him. I own an older Danny Ketch Ghost Rider figure from the Legends line, which was pretty cool, I felt. As for this one...it looks cool, but lack of bike kind of hurts it overall, I think.

The original marvel legends ghost rider is what started my marvel legends obsession and the funny thing is I pretty much just read dc. He's awesome because he came with the bike. I've seen the blue flame version of this figure a few times in the northeast, usually at target. Can't wait for wave 3

The blue reminds me of 'Fathom' and Micheal Turner. RIP

I haven't bought a Marvel Legends figure in years, but this one is tempting.
