Earlier this week I talked about the arrival of one of the two final 2015 Marvel Legends items: the Target Exclusive Marvel Legends three-pack containing figures of Ultron, Indestructible Hulk and the West Coast Avengers Vision. But that’s not to say that the other final item for this year’s range hasn’t been released recently as well: the Walgreens Exclusive Marvel Legends First Appearance Daredevil figure is also at large! And while he was previously only found online, Classic Yellow Daredevil is starting to show up now in Walgreens stores as well…Continue Reading →
With Q4 2015 beginning tomorrow, it’s almost time to bid our Hasbro Marvel 2015 collecting adieu. Every full series of 2015 Marvel Legends has now been released at mass retail, with just a few exclusives left as holdouts. Or, at least there were some exclusive holdouts left! The exclusive Target Marvel Legends 3-Pack of Vision, Ultron and Hulk figures has now been released in stores! From a certain point of view…Continue Reading →
I’ve been doing an awful lot of talking about Hulk toys this week, so I think maybe it’s time to switch gears and do some Hulk-busting!
The most talked-about and in-demand Hasbro Marvel Legends figure of the year is the Hulkbuster Iron Man Build-A-Figure. You have to buy all seven Marvel Legends Avengers Wave 3 figures to build him, but is the Marvel Legends Hulkbuster Iron Man worth it…? In two words: “Awwwww. Yeah.”Continue Reading →
The Spider-Man Marvel Legends Rhino Series is one of my favorite Hasbro Marvel Legends 6″ series ever, as it’s filling in character gaps both vital (Ben Reilly Scarlet Spider, Chameleon) and ridiculously obscure. Last time I talked about the almost-perfect Misty Knight figure, but she’s not the only female in this wave! The Marvel Legends White Tiger figure is also now available for order, and while she may not be a mainstream icon, she is a pretty stellar action figure…Continue Reading →
It was exactly seven months and two days ago that Hasbro tried (successfully, in many cases) to buy Marvel movie fans’ love by unveiling the Amazon Exclusive Marvel Legends Avengers Age of Ultron 4-Pack at the New York Toy Fair 2015. Well, it’s been an arduous wait, but ahead of AOU arriving on Blu Ray, the Avengers Marvel Legends Box set is finally in-stock and shipping! And for those who can’t haven’t received their set yet and want to check out the in-hand photos of the figures, here you go…Continue Reading →
At New York Toy Fair 2015 in February, I came to the realization that the Hasbro Marvel Legends brand is now nearly as strong as Star Wars was a decade before, now being able to feasibly produce and sell through the most obscure of characters.
And the character that made my have that epiphany is the subject of tonight’s review: Marvel Legends Misty Knight is now available for below retail cost online–should you add her to your collection?Continue Reading →
Now that we’ve hit the slow season between SDCC 2015 and NYCC 2015, it’s time to backtrack and discuss some upcoming items that I didn’t give their due to right away. And the biggest of those news items is the first major wave of Marvel Legends 2016 figures: the Marvel Legends Captain America Civil War wave! I talked about three of the figures from this wave during the second day of SDCC, but Hasbro still had a couple more surprises for us… including a Werewolf Captain America and the Red Onslaught Build-A-Figure!Continue Reading →
2015 has been an excellent “make-good” year for previously-canceled Hasbro Marvel action figures. In the 6″ Marvel Legends lineup, we’ve finally gotten the long-lost Iron Fist, Sentry, Blizzard, Tigershark, Bulldozer and more. And now we can add one more previously M.I.A. figure to that list: the Marvel Legends Rescue figure is finally coming out–as the 2016 Marvel Unlimited Plus exclusive figure!Continue Reading →
Last time I reviewed a Marvel Legends Hulkbuster Series figure, I focused on a comics-based version of a character newly-introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But while the Vision is all shiny and new to the MCU this year, next year the MCU is gonna get a lot more… strange! The 2015 Marvel Legends Doctor Strange figure is now available for order online–but is he as worthy of your dollars as the excellent Vision figure was? Read on for my review…Continue Reading →
While Hasbro covered all their bases with the core movie Avengers by releasing a new movie-based Marvel Legends figure for each of the six main members of the Avengers, the new recruits (Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and Vision) didn’t get the same treatment. Even so, the new comics-based Marvel Legends Vision figure is now available online and in some stores, and while he’s clearly not a replacement for a movie Vision, he’s a terrific figure nonetheless…Continue Reading →
Now that the Avengers Marvel Legends Hulkbuster series is available online and slowly starting to hit retail stores, I figured it was about time that I sat down and started reviewing the figures that comprise the series.
And while this series features the Hulkbuster Iron Man Build-A-Figure which is the anticipated BAF in years, if you want to built it, you’ll have to buy another Iron Man to do so: Marvel Legends Marvel NOW Iron Man…Continue Reading →
It had been quite a few years since Hasbro let fans have a direct say in a 6″ figure that gets produced in the Marvel Legends line, but last month, Hasbro broke their streak in grand fashion with a Marvel Legends Fan’s Choice Poll voting tournament which began at San Diego Comic-Con 2015! It was a real melee with fan-favorites like Cosmo, Lady Sif, The Hood and Quasar being eliminated early-on. But when the dust cleared after the finals, one figure reigned supreme and is now confirmed to be on the way: the first-ever Marvel Legends Angela figure!Continue Reading →
Almost unquestionably the most talked-about series of 2015 Hasbro Marvel Legends figures has been frustratingly difficult to find at retail thus far. While some online retailers received limited stock of cases in early July, those waiting for individual figures have had a rough time.
But if you haven’t found these figures yet, you need hunt no longer–Amazon now has all of the shortpacked Marvel Legends Hulkbuster Series figures available for order with free shipping!Continue Reading →
