While I was out seeing the wonder that is the Big Hero 6 movie last night, Hasbro was burning the midnight oil! As such, on a cold fall Saturday night, we got our first packaged look at the figures I get more people messaging and asking me about than any others: the 2015 Marvel Legends Avengers figures! We’re still going to have to wait until winter to get them, but now we can drool over the Avengers Marvel Legends Series 1 hi-res photos until then…
The fine folks at Hasbro are clearly harder-working than me, because while I was out fighting the crowds last night to see the derivative-and-flawed-yet-thoroughly-enjoyable Big Hero 6 movie, Hasbro was sending out our first packaged photos of the 6″ Marvel Legends Avengers Wave 1 action figures heading our way this winter!
- Avengers Marvel Legends Thor
- Avengers Marvel Legends Sentry
- Avengers Marvel Legends Hawkeye
- Avengers Marvel Legends Scarlet Witch
- Avengers Marvel Legends Captain Marvel Carol Danvers
- Avengers Marvel Legends Machine Man
- Avengers Marvel Legends Iron Fist (White)
- Avengers Marvel Legends Build-A-Figure: Odin/King Thor
“Are the Avengers Marvel Legends Captain Marvel and Scarlet Witch figures swap figures?”
Sort of! Hasbro has said multiple times now that all of the Marvel Legends 2015 swap figures are intended to ship in the same case together this time, so presumably you should be able to just buy a case of this series and nab every figure in the set, including the Marvel Legends Carol Danvers Captain Marvel and Marvel Legends Scarlet Witch “Maidens of Might” figures.
The “Avenging Allies” Marvel Legends Sentry and Machine Man figures will also be swap figures (of a sort).
The alternate BAF parts are for converting the Odin figure into a Marvel Legends King Thor Build-A-Figure. King Thor is from the Jason Aaron Marvel NOW! Thor: God of Thunder comic book series that just wrapped up.

The Marvel Legends Avengers Infinite Series figures are scheduled to be released in Winter 2015. Hasbro hasn’t given a more specific release window than that, but seeing as how we’ve now got gorgeous, hi-res packaged photos, I wouldn’t be surprised if early cases of this series showed up at the very end of 2014.
As we now have hi-res photos from Hasbro, I expect online retailers to begin taking orders for the Avengers Marvel Legends Infinite Series figures later this month. I’ll post an update here and to the Marvel Toy News Facebook Page as soon as these Marvel Legends 2015 figures turn up at retail, so stay tuned. Same Marvel time, same Marvel URL.
Now that you’ve seen the Avengers Marvel Legends Infinite Series 1 figures as up-close-and-personal as is possible through a computer screen, what do you think, Marvel fans? Is your heart all a-flutter awaiting this wave’s arrival, or are you let down by the first Marvel Legends Avengers wave?
