2017 Marvel Legends Movie Figures 4″ 2-Packs Revealed!

With the Hasbro New York Toy Fair 2017 event just over two weeks away, one might think Hasbro would be keeping their secrets close to their vest right now. But perhaps to whet our appetites for the big show, Hasbro is doing anything but! This morning they delighted Star Wars fans with photos of the Admiral Raddus wave of Rogue One figures, and now it’s Marvel fans’ turn! Coming our way this spring, it’s 3.75″ Marvel Legends movie figures love in the form of two-packs for Doctor Strange, Spider-Man Homecoming and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2!

Hasbro Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Two-Pack Packaged

I’m a bit surprised to see Hasbro hitting us up with so much news just half a month before the 2017 Toy Fair, but it’s been a slow week, so I’m not complaining!

2016 was a bad year for Marvel Universe-scaled MCU figures, with the only super-articulated 3 3/4″ movie figures being released being Civil War Black Panther, Agent 13, Falcon and Captain America. Luckily, things are looking way better in the new year already with six new movie figures announced in the smaller Marvel Legends scale today!

Marvel Legends 4 Inch Star-Lord and Yondu Figures Two-PackFirst up, we’ve got a Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy 2 figures two-pack of Star-Lord and Yondu! Yondu’s smiling face seriously creeps me out, but both of these figures look fantastic otherwise. Star-Lord has his twin Element Guns, but sadly no Chris Pratt head.

What’s odd about this pack is that we’ve yet to get 3.75″ movie figures of Drax, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon or Groot at all. That’s rather strange, given that GOTG 2 is going to be the major MCU movie of 2017. Maybe we’ll hear something more about the rest of the team at Toy Fair…?

Marvel Legends Doctor Strange Movie Figures Two Pack PackagedNext up, we’ve got a Doctor Strange two-pack of a Benedict Cumberbatch Doctor Strange figure and… a clear Astral Form Doctor Strange “repaint” of the same figure. I thought it was really bizarre that we didn’t get a 4″ movie Doctor Strange figure last year to coincide with the movie’s release, so it’s nice to see that being rectified now.

Hasbro Marvel Legends 4 Inch Doctor Strange Figure Two-PackI’m not entirely thrilled about the Astral Doctor Strange figure that competes the two-pack, but I can understand it with tooling costs being high and the figure being an otherwise unique sculpt that can’t really be used anywhere else.

Marvel Legends Spider-Man Homecoming Vulture Figure 4 Inch Hasbro

Finally, we’ve got loose photos (no packaged shots yet) for the 4″ Marvel Legends Spider-Man Homecoming Spider-Man and Vulture figures! I think Hasbro has teased us now with every Homecoming Spidey except the 6″ Marvel Legends version, so hopefully we’ll be seeing him shortly. If the 3.75″ iteration is any indication, he should be quite nice.

Meanwhile, that movie Vulture figure looks well-done, even if the bomber jacket Vulture costume still looks rather ridiculous to me. It’ll be nice to get a complete ML Vulture in one scale without having to buy a whole wave to make him as a Build-A-Figure!

Marvel Legends Spider-Man Homecoming Spider-Man Figure 4 InchThese Marvel Universe scale movie figures are scheduled to be released in Spring 2017, and will retail for the collector-friendly price of $19.99 per two-pack. I’ll post links on the Marvel Toy News Twitter and Facebook Pages as soon as these launch for pre-orders.

What do you think of this year’s assortment of movie-based Marvel Legends 4″ figures, Marvel collectors? Which of these packs–if any–are you deliberating on adding to your collection this spring, and what movie figures would you like to see added later in the year?


2017 Marvel Legends Movie Figures 4″ 2-Packs Revealed! — 14 Comments

  1. Finally some decent 4″ figures. About time hasbro finally listened. The sculpt work on these guys are crazy.

  2. Hey Dabid! 😀 In terms of NYCC when do you think Hot Toys coverage will be shown? Friday before the 18th? The 17th?

    • Hot Toys and Sideshow don’t attend New York Toy Fair in February, but I imagine Hot Toys will start taking pre-orders for their Guardians of the Galaxy 2 figures in early March. 🙂

      • Thanks so much Dabid! I guess I had mixed up NYCC with SDCC. XD 😀 March would be the perfect time!

  3. I was hoping we’d get a movie Vulture in the 4″ scale! The comic Vulture we got not too long ago is DREADFUL. This one looks fantastic- love Spidey too. Like the Star Lord, as well, but Yondu looks off. Can’t say I’m too excited for the Doctor Strange figures, though I’ll probably pick them up anyway.

  4. Only part I don’t like is the wings on Vulture. I was hoping for a more impressive wingspan.

  5. Aside from Vulture and Yondu’s head, it looks like Hasbro got their shrink-ray working.

  6. I’m not thrilled with that Vulture head sculpt, which is a shame because I love the helmet in the movie.

  7. They look really good. I want Spidey/Vulture. My only problem with the Dr Strange and Guardians figures, is they look almost identical to the 6 inch ones.

  8. These are amazing, but has anyone heard the release date for the Rocket/Groot 2 pack that was supposed to be out by now?
