The Hasbro Marvel Legends 3.75″ figures line may have gotten off to a slow start in 2016–in fact, we’re still waiting for Wave 2 to arrive–but the long-awaited and totally awesome-looking 4″ Marvel Legends Wave 3 is now up for order! Including characters like Quasar, Hydro-Man and Rogue, the character selection for this series is gonna make a lot of people smile! The case ratios for the figures, however… perhaps not so much…Continue Reading →
While it feels like we’re getting buried in Marvel Legends 6″ figures during this first half of 2016, things haven’t been quite as rosy for the Marvel Universe scale Marvel Legends 4″ figures. In fact, there’s still quite a few figures that debuted 10 months ago that haven’t made it out yet. But some of those figures are finally getting ready to make their way into collectors’ hands: 3.75″ Marvel Legends Comic Packs Wave 2 is now up for order!Continue Reading →
You know it’s been a pretty crazy year when Cottomouth isn’t the most obscure Marvel Legends 6″ figure that Hasbro releases! But while he may not exactly be a household name, the Marvel Legends Red Guardian figure is still selling excellent online and in stores–and it’s not just for the Giant-Man piece!
The Red Guardian Marvel Legends 6″ figure isn’t just a good action figure–it’s likely to be the best toy of this character ever released…Continue Reading →
I can only dance around talking about the most popular figure in the Marvel Legends Civil War series for so long, so after many, many requests, it’s finally time to talk about T’Challa! The Civil War Marvel Legends Black Panther figure is selling for $30+ online and is next to impossible to find in retail stores right now.
For all the effort finding him requires, it’d be a huge letdown if this Black Panther 6″ figure wasn’t exceptional. Luckily, he absolutely is…Continue Reading →
I almost fell out of my chair when Hasbro revealed the Captain America Marvel Legends Civil War wave and someone asked why Nick Fury was a white guy. “You know you’re old when…”, right? But while white Nick Fury may not be the most recognizable iteration of the character anymore (to my astonishment), the new Marvel Legends Nick Fury figure is still in high demand and selling for well over MSRP. But should you want multiples of this figure to army-build…? Hmm…Continue Reading →
It’s become a bit of a tradition for Hasbro to blow me away with amazing action figures of characters that I frankly do not care about. And it looks like that tradition is about to carry over to another year, as Hasbro has granted us an action figure of a Captain America and Wolverine villain I never expected to see in toy form. The Captain America Marvel Legends Nuke figure is now available online for just above MSRP, and surprisingly, he’s worth buying for way more than the Giant-Man Build-A-Figure piece…Continue Reading →
The worst-kept secret in all of the Hasbro Marvel Legends 2016 6″ figures lineup has finally arrived: the 10″ Marvel Legends Civil War Giant-Man Build-A-Figure! If you want this behemoth to join your collection, you’ve got two options: You’ll have to buy all six figures in this wave–including the ultra-demanded movie Black Panther–to get all the pieces for this figure, or else pick up the Marvel Legends Giant-Man figure on the aftermarket for ~$65! Is Giant-Man worth the expense? Read on…Continue Reading →
We’re still in the first quarter of 2016, but already Hasbro has given us some of the most-anticipated figures of the year, including Marvel Legends Venom, Spider-Gwen and Taskmaster. But in the flip side, some of the figures released thus far have been… “less” popular. Such is the case with the subject of today’s review. You can get the Spider-Man Marvel Legends Beetle female figure for below her retail price now online… should you?Continue Reading →
Fresh off of Hasbro releasing long-awaited official hi-res photos of the Giant-Man series yesterday, we’ve got our first good (totally unofficial) look at a trio of upcoming Marvel Legends exclusives! A scrapper has posted photos of a trio of upcoming exclusive Marvel Legends figures including a non-glam shot for the first time of the Marvel Legends Namor figure–and the Submariner has also brought along the first images of Civil War War Machine Mark III and Disco Iron Man!Continue Reading →
And the hits keep right on coming on the Marvel Legends front! Hasbro showed off a number of exclusives to the press at the 2016 Toy Fair, but wouldn’t allow photography at that time. One of those exclusives was a comics-based three-pack including Marvel Legends Kate Bishop Hawkeye, Sam Wilson Captain America and All-New Vision. Well–surprise! That exclusive Marvel Legends 3-Pack has now appeared in a Hong Kong Toys R Us!Continue Reading →
Things didn’t go as planned as far as secrecy goes with the soon-arriving Hasbro Marvel Legends Captain America Civil War figures wave. Images of both the figures and the top-secret Giant-Man Build-A-Figure leaked out long before they were meant to. But now Hasbro is finally ready to show all their cards, and has released official photos of the entire Marvel Legends Civil War wave!Continue Reading →
Back before I got sidetracked with a tidal wave of Marvel toy news from New York Toy Fair 2016, I was reviewing the first waves of Marvel Legends 2016 figures.
But now that the news has subsided a bit, let’s get back to talking about this year’s first series of Spider-Man characters with a review of the Marvel Legends Venom! Venom is tough to find and selling for a couple bucks over MSRP on the aftermarket right now–is he worth the hunt?Continue Reading →
One of the hands-down biggest surprises for me at last month’s New York Toy Fair 2016 was how much I liked the first two Marvel Legends Prop Replica role-play toys: the life-size Captain America’s Shield and Iron Man’s Helmet. Hasbro said at Toy Fair they’d use the pre-order sales to gauge of the line would be continuing. They must be happy with the sales, because they’ve not posted a Fan’s Choice Vote online for the next addition to the Marvel Legends Role-Play Items line!Continue Reading →
