2015 is a great year to be alive and a Marvel Legends collector! Not only do we have four waves of Avengers Marvel Legends and two waves of Spider-Man Marvel Legends in 2015, but we’ll also be getting a variety of retailer exclusive sets. And while one of those sets was announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2014, we haven’t heard another word about it–until now! The comics-based modern Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy set has now been revealed!Continue Reading →
I’m very fond of Marvel Toy News’ track record of only having reported news that’s ended up being 100% true since the site’s inception, so I tend to err on the side of caution with what gets reported here. As such, when a totally unannounced Marvel Legends 5-Pack consisting entirely of old molds turned up in an auction listing–on April Fools’ Day–I hesitated to report it. But as it turns out, looks like I’m the fool–Hasbro has now confirmed that this European Disney Store Exclusive Marvel Legends 5-Pack is the real deal!Continue Reading →
Although there are over 8,000 Marvel heroes and villains, less than 500 of them are characters that most people have ever heard of. And so, with hundreds of figures now released, there are very few major omissions left. And this year, perhaps the most prominent missing villain has finally arrived: Thanos!
Is it worth buying five of the Marvel Legends Avengers Wave 2 figures to build the Thanos Build-A-Figure…?Continue Reading →
Daredevil has had his own Marvel comic book series for over 50 years now, but it’s in 2015 that he’ll finally hit the big-time! Not only is the live-action Daredevil Netflix series coming out in just a few weeks, but Hasbro is releasing the first Marvel Legends Daredevil figure in quite a few years!
The Amazon orders for those who pre-ordered Daredevil are shipping this week, And thankfully, this long-awaited Daredevil figure really is all it’s cracked up to be…Continue Reading →
If anyone had asked me to list off 100 characters I thought might get the Hasbro Marvel Legends treatment in 2015, May “Mayday” Parker would not have been on that list. But Hasbro has made some pleasantly surprising choices in 2015, and I sure am glad that they did!
The Spider-Man Marvel Legends Spider-Girl is now appearing in stores and shipping next week from Amazon–is she your worth your $20-$25? Read on…Continue Reading →
At this point in my collecting life, it takes a lot to get me so pumped up about going on a toy run that I don’t sleep well overnight. But that’s just what happened last night, when the long-awaited Marvel Legends SHIELD three-pack started showing up on ebay. And thus, I set out this morning on an hours-long quest to find my own Marvel Legends Coulson, Maria Hill and Nick Fury pack…Continue Reading →
Before I got sidetracked by the maelstrom of Marvel toy news that was New York Toy Fair 2015, I had begun reviewing the 2015 Marvel Legends Avengers Infinite Series. Now that the flood of new info has subsided, it’s time to get back to business.
So let’s pick things back up with one of the figures that keeps selling out online–the Carol Danvers Avengers Marvel Legends Captain Marvel figure!Continue Reading →
It was a week ago today that Hasbro allowed online retailers to start taking pre-orders for the Marvel Legends Avengers Wave 2 Thanos Series of action figures. Because of the case-pack ratios (where four of the six figures are packed at one-per-case), the vast majority of stores are only selling full cases (or complete sets at a markup) of the Avengers Legends Wave 2 figures. But what if you just want a Marvel Legends Batroc Spider-Woman…? Have no fear: Amazon is now pre-selling all six Marvel Legends Avengers Wave 2 figures for about retail price and with free shipping!Continue Reading →
Last year, Hasbro blasted Marvel Legends collectors with the second wave of Spider-Man Legends and Captain America Legends within a month or so of the figures hitting retail. It looks like that trend will be continuing this year as well, as Avengers Marvel Legends Wave 2 is now up for order–and scheduled to arrive this month! And hey, the case assortment for this Marvel Legends Avengers Thanos Series even makes sense…Continue Reading →
2015 is a spectacular year for Hasbro Marvel Legends collectors, with more new 6″ figures announced for release than any year since Hasbro revived Marvel Legends. The Avengers Marvel Legends Odin Series has been a smash hit, and the Spider-Man Marvel Legends 2015 Hobgoblin wave has now begun trickling into stores. But if you’re worried about not finding the four one-per-case figures locally, fear no more–Marvel Legends Daredevil, Spider-Man 2099 and friends are all now available online with free shipping!Continue Reading →
For months, rumors have circulated about possible Marvel Legends Ant-Man figures. While it was initially unknown if the Target listing for Marvel Legends Ant-Man referred to a singular figure or an entire series, Amazon accidentally leaked the identities of the six figures that might make up the wave a few weeks ago. But after New York Toy Fair 2015, Hasbro has played all their cards, confirming the six figures we thought were coming–and a Build-A-Figure we totally did not! Coming this summer: the Marvel Legends Ant-Man Infinite Series with Ultron Prime Build-A-Figure!Continue Reading →
Hasbro may have left Star Wars collectors out to dry at New York Toy Fair 2015 (with nary a new figure to be found in the land!), but they seriously brought the goods this year for Marvel collectors!
Along with the two exclusive Marvel Legends multi-packs that were revealed, Hasbro showed off three full waves of previously unannounced Marvel Legends 2015 figures. And the biggest surprise of them all was the Marvel Legends Spider-Man Wave 2–with Marvel Legends Rhino Build-A-Figure!Continue Reading →
Remember when computer listings appeared for a mysterious wave of Marvel Legends figures that some speculated would be a Barnes and Noble exclusive, and I asserted that that would be utterly ridiculous? Yeah–I was right. Marvel Legends Avengers Wave 3, as I thought, is another mass-release Marvel Legends 2015 figures set. But you know what’s even better than me being right…? If you said “a giant 9″ tall Hulkbuster Iron Man Build-A-Figure”, you’re right!Continue Reading →
