2017 Marvel Legends 4″ Wave 1 Released! Moon Knight! X-23!

While I was at Target this morning hysterically tossing the new X-Men Marvel Legends figures into my basket, I caught a glimpse of something out of the corner of my eye that it took my brain a moment to comprehend. Though I hadn’t heard any reports about them hitting stores yet, the Marvel Universe scale 3.75″ Marvel Legends 2017 Wave 1 figures were all in-stock and in front of my face, including X-23 Wolverine, Moon Knight, Maestro and more!

Marvel Legends X-23 Wolverine Figure Released

I’m not gonna lie: we see so little news regarding the comic-based Hasbro Marvel Universe scale 4″ Marvel Legends figures these days that I tend to forget that new figures are released in the line at all when they’re not right in front of me.

Luckily, today it just so happened that the very first half-dozen new releases in the 2017 Marvel Legends 4″ figures series really were right in front of me–and on sale for 50% off, too! Thanks, Target!

There are six figures in the series, all of which revealed way back at San Diego Comic Con 2016 in July 2016 (it’s no wonder I forget this line is still going!).

Marvel Legends 2017 X-23 Wolverine Figure CardbackThe figure in this series that I expect to be the hottest seller and most popular of the wave by far is the new Marvel Legends X-23 Wolverine (AKA All-New Wolverine), as it’s the first mass market release for Laura. The paint apps could have been a bit cleaner on the two at my store, but Wolverine X-23 was coming home with me no matter what.

Marvel Legends 3.75" 2017 Wave 1 Moon Knight Figure PackagedThe other action figure in this series that I expect to be mega-popular is the Marvel Legends Moon Knight 4″ figure.

Moon Knight Hasbro Marvel Legends Universe Cardback 2017We’ll be getting a bigger and better version of 6″ Moon Knight in this costume in a couple months with accessories and more articulation, but I’m a Moon Knight fanboy and couldn’t resist purchasing this one as well.

Hasbro Marvel Universe Spider-UK 3.75" Figure PackagedJoining his 6″ figure that’s currently hitting stores, it’s the 3.75″ Spider-UK! I’m a mark for Spider-Man variants, but I hate this unarticulated torso so much that I couldn’t bring myself to buy this particular figure, as much as I wanted to.

Marvel Legends 3.75" All New All Different Iron Man FigureNext, we’ve got All-New All-Different Iron Man making his Hasbro Legends toy debut! Even without an Avengers wave to put him in this year, I feel like this armor needs to get a release by this time next year.

2017 Marvel Legends 4" Maestro Hulk Figure Packaged4″ Marvel Legends Maestro is the fifth figure in this series, and a character that’s traditionally been pretty popular whenever he’s released.

Maestro Marvel Universe Legends 3.75" Figure CardbackI’m genuinely not a fan of the modern Maestro in battle armor, so I’m not nearly as excited about this Maestro figure as I’d like to be. It’ll be interesting to see how well this version does sales-wise.

Marvel Legends Lady Deadpool & Squirrelpool Two-Pack

Finally, we’ve got a two-pack (of a sort) rounding out the series: Marvel Legends Lady Deadpool and Squirrelpool! Both of these figures are repacks from the SDCC 2013 Deadpool Corps exclusive set.

Despite Wanda Wilson basically being a non-entity in the comics these days, she’s remained popular and has a Lady Deadpool Marvel Select figure currently available for order, and a Marvel Legends 6″ figure almost guaranteed (in my mind) for a 2018 Deadpool Legends series that hasn’t even been hinted at yet and currently only exists in my imagination.

2017 Hasbro Marvel Universe Lady Deadpool Packaging BackI haven’t seen any online retailers taking orders for this series yet, but there are ample 3.75″ Marvel Legends 2017 figures on eBay now at inflated prices for those who absolutely cannot wait. I’m not in love with this series like I used to be, so I wasn’t going to spend a penny above MSRP on these figures. Your collecting mileage may vary, of course. For those who want to try their luck with the shared DCPI # for this series at Target, the number is 087-06-1970.

Anyone else spot this just-released wave of Hasbro Marvel Universe figures at their own stores yet? Who (besides me) is still collecting toys from this line, and what do you think of these new releases?


2017 Marvel Legends 4″ Wave 1 Released! Moon Knight! X-23! — 6 Comments

  1. I own a movie theater and I use these figures for building dioramas in the lobby. I really like the six inch Legends, but there’s something comforting about the 3.75″ line–and not to mention, I can get more figures in a limited space. I’d like to see Hasbro at least keep this figure size in play for the movie tie-ins.

  2. I’d love to actually get these. Too bad all the stores near me haven’t gotten anything past the ML Doctor Strange wave, so I’ll probably never see these.

  3. I just cannot figure out how or why we have gotten two different figures of Spider-UK in less than a year when we can’t even get a ML Loki.

  4. Second Laura Release, but first Wolverine X-23 release. Back in Marvel Universe there was a X-23, it was 2011 if I recall.
