2017 Marvel Legends Green Goblin Review & Photos

Marvel Legends 2017 Green Goblin 6" Figure Review

When Hasbro tooled up new parts for the Hobgoblin this summer, the writing was on the wall that a new 6″ Green Goblin would be flying in before too long. And while nobody could have foreseen Dreadknight using some of the newly-developed tooling himself first, Spider-Man’s greatest villain has now arrived! The 2017 Marvel Legends Green Goblin figure is now hitting online and in some stores, and this new iteration is a definite home run for Hasbro…

Marvel Legends Shocker Review 2017 Sandman Series

Marvel Legends Shocker Review

I think it’s a pretty good testament to how wildly successfully the Marvel Legends 6″ line has been the past few years–and how much Hasbro has been spoiling us–that the Shocker has actually risen to the top of many fans’ wish lists. He’s arriving a bit later than the summer date we all expected, but the Marvel Legends Shocker figure has been selling out online constantly for almost two weeks now! But I’m just not as excited about this figure as I wanted to be…

2017 Marvel Legends Spider-Man 2099 Figure Review & Photos

Spider-Man 2099 Marvel Legends 2017 Figure

I kicked off my Marvel Legends 2017 reviews by discussing one of the most classic of classic Spider-Man villains–the Jackal! So for my second review, let’s switch things up and go to the other end of the spectrum entirely with the newest version of a Spidey that’s not even Peter Parker. He’s been getting restocked and selling out online a couple times a day every day for a week now, and with good reason–it’s the all-awesome, All-New Spider-Man 2099 Marvel Legends figure!

2017 Marvel Legends Jackal 6″ Figure Review & Photos

2017 Marvel Legends The Jackal vs. Spider-Man

Who’s green and fuzzy and responsible for the creation of all the most beloved clones in the history of Marvel Comics…? That’s right–it’s Professor Miles Warren himself, the Jackal! From Ben Reilly to Gwen Stacy to Kaine, the Jackal has cloned all the greats and functioned as the catalyst for the Spider-Man Clone Saga, Maximum Clonage, Dead No More and more! And now, its the Jackal’s greatest achievement: the Marvel Legends Jackal figure is part of the first wave of 2017 Marvel Legends! Jackal has been in and out of stock online many times since last week–should you be on the alert for him?

Marvel Legends 2017 Spider-Man Wave 1 Up for Order Online!

Spider-Man Marvel Legends Sandman Series Figures Packaged

When the Sandman Series of Spider-Man Marvel Legends 2017 figures appeared outta nowhere yesterday, I had a feeling we’d be seeing Hasbro allow pre-order solicitations from online retailers within days. And as anticipated, that’s exactly what has occurred–the 6″ Spider-Man Legends Sandman Series is now up for pre-order online and expected to start shipping within the next few weeks!

2017 Marvel Legends Spider-Man Sandman Series Released!

marvel-legends-spider-man-2017-wave-1-figures-found-in-us

Ordinarily I wouldn’t write up a whole article just because of a couple new low-resolution photos surfacing of a whole series of figures that we already know about, but since we’re in a little bit of a Marvel Legends news drought right now–and these particular low-res photos reveal some details we weren’t previously privy to–I think I need to make an exception! Start saving now–the Marvel Legends 2017 Spider-Man Wave 1 Sandman Series has now started to be found!

UPDATE: The Marvel Legends 2017 Sandman Series is now up for order online!

X-Men Marvel Legends Havok Figure Review & Photos

Close-Up of X-Men Legends Havok 6" Figure

It’s taken close to half a year, but it looks like supply is finally fully catching up to demand on the inaugural X-Men Marvel Legends wave! Marvel Legends Deadpool has been restocked online at MSRP throughout the past week and is finally becoming common, but today’s review subject is a figure a little… less… hard to find! He’s filling the shelves of most retail stores and can be bought online for about 11 bucks flat, but is the Marvel Legends Havok figure really all that bad…?

Marvel Legends X-Men Kitty Pryde 6″ Figure Review & Photos

Marvel Legends 2016 Kitty Pryde and Lockheed Figures

Though it’s been lauded as perhaps the single best Hasbro Marvel Legends wave in history, even the strongest series is going to have its own weakest figures. And in the case of the 2016 Marvel Legends X-Men series, Kitty Pryde is definitely that weak link, in my opinion. Marvel Legends Kitty Pryde is available online now for 11 bucks, and like her or not, you’re going to need her to complete two different Build-A-Figures…

X-Men Marvel Legends Wolverine 6″ Figure Review & Photos

X-Men Marvel Legends Wolverine 6 Inch Figure Review

2016 has been relentless as far as Marvel Legends collecting goes, with more series being released by Hasbro in one year than ever before. But at last, we have a respite for collectors to pick up figures they missed during the year and for me to fill in reviews for figures I skipped. And though today’s subject was rare and expensive on the aftermarket for a few months, the X-Men Legends Wolverine figure is now available for way below retail price online! If you haven’t nabbed this Brown Costume Wolverine Marvel Legends figure yet, you really should, because it’s a great one…

Marvel Legends Juggernaut Build-A-Figure Review (X-Men)

Review Juggernaut Marvel Legends Figure Hasbro 2016

Previously I’ve reviewed every single 2016 Marvel Legends Build-A-Figure released this year–save one–so I might as well complete the set! Somehow I managed to skip over the BAF of what many consider to be the best Hasbro Marvel Legends wave of all-time earlier, but there’s no stopping him now! Those who buy the whole set of X-Men Legends figures are able to build this Marvel Legends Juggernaut Build-A-Figure: Did I save my review of the best BAF of 2016 for last?

Marvel Legends Civil War Scarlet Witch Review & Photos

Civil War Scarlet Witch Marvel Legends Review

UPDATE 10/31/2016: The Marvel Legends Civil War Scarlet Witch 6″ figure is currently available online for $18 shipped.

This is the first time that I’ve seen this movie figure dip below MSRP and very well may be the last if Black Panther is any indication, so if you want movie Scarlet Witch and don’t have her yet, this may very well be your best opportunity to nab her…

Marvel Legends Deadpool Figure Review & Photos

Deadpool Marvel Legends Figure Holding Taco

Now that I’ve reviewed the vast majority of this year’s Hasbro Marvel Legends figures, I can take my time backtracking and filling in the gaps. And there’s no figure review more requested than the one I’m discussing today! Those who found one already know how great he is, and those who still need the X-Men Legends Deadpool figure should lock in a pre-order from the restock while they last, because this 6″ Deadpool figure definitely meets and exceeds most collectors’ lofty expectations…

Marvel Legends Wonder Man 6″ Figure Review & Photos (2016)

Marvel Legends Abomination Series Wonder Man Energy Effects Accessories

While I was spelunking into my huge box of Marvel action figures that still need to be reviewed today, I discovered that lo and behold, I had unwittingly reviewed all of the final wave of Captain America Marvel Legends 2016 6″ figures but one. And as the remaining character continued a near-iconic member of the Avengers by many, I figure I might as well finish the job. If you haven’t seen him locally (and I sure haven’t), he’s available for MSRP online with free shipping–it’s the 2016 Marvel Legends Wonder Man figure!

Marvel Legends Secret War Captain America Review & Photos 2016

Marvel Legends Secret War Captain America Review

I feel sort of bad about how hard I was ragging on the Iron Skull figure yesterday, so today’s review is going to cover a new iteration of a classic character that I think worked out much, much better for Hasbro.

He’s not even available in most stores yet, but he’s still selling for below MSRP and free shipping online. Even so, the Marvel Legends Secret War Captain America is a surprisingly fantastic new 6″ Captain America figure…

Marvel Legends Iron Skull Red Skull Review & Photos

Red Skull Head on Iron Skull Marvel Legends Action Figure

If you’ve ever seen a new costume or character design and instantly knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that it had been created solely for the purpose of cashing in with merch, you know exactly how I feel about the Iron Skull.

But while the intent of the Iron Red Skull concept itself is dubious, that doesn’t mean it can’t spawn some cool toys. And today I’ll be looking at the latest Iron Skull action figure to go up for sale–the 6″ Captain America Marvel Legends Iron Skull!
