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 →
Remember last year, when the Walgreens Exclusive Marvel Legends Agent Venom figure was revealed at SDCC 2014, and then we had to wait what felt like eons for it to finally start arriving at retail stores…? Yeah–this isn’t gonna be like that. This year, Walgreens has their act together and is ready to strike while the iron is hot. After just debuting in the Hasbro showcase at SDCC 2015 one week ago, the exclusive Walgreens Ant-Man Marvel Legends figure has already begun hitting stores this week!Continue Reading →
Hasbro doesn’t believe in playing all of their cards at once at the biggest convention of the year, and that’s why–even though they’ve already shown off an amazing all-new wave of Spider-Man Legends figures and their panel is less than 24 hours away–Hasbro debuted three more all-new Marvel Legends figures on Friday at San Diego Comic-Con 2015! And while the bad news is that we’re getting yet another Captain America figure, the good news is that we’re getting the first-ever Marvel Legends Mockingbird figure, as well as a totally different Taskmaster from what we’ve seen before!Continue Reading →
Tragically, in this day and age of early internet leaks, it’s getting harder and harder for toy companies to ever truly surprise collectors with reveals that are totally unexpected. On San Diego Comic-Con 2015 Preview Night, Hasbro debuted the Marvel Legends Walgreens exclusives that everyone had known about for months. And on Thursday–the first full day of the convention–Hasbro next debuting products turn out to be another lineup that avid fans already knew to expect–but man, what a lineup! It’s 2015 Marvel Legends Spider-Man Wave 3–including Spider-Gwen, Jack O’ Lantern, Mobius and more!Continue Reading →
On Valentine’s Day, Hasbro won the love of thousands of Marvel Legends movie figure collectors when it revealed the Amazon exclusive Marvel Legends Avengers Age of Ultron 4-Pack Box Set. Up until the Toy Fair, it appeared that the entirety of the 6″ Age of Ultron lineup would simply be retooled Captain America, Iron Man and Hulk figures. But Hasbro made their commitment to completing the core team known, and now we can see the fruits of their labor: the Amazon Avengers Legends set is now available for order!Continue Reading →
Our new house is roasting at 90 degrees without functional cooling, we just got the internet up and running an hour ago, I don’t have a desk yet in the house so I’m working on the floor, and my mousepad is a piece of paper. But hey–it’s all good times, as San Diego Comic-Con 2015 has finally arrived! And while Hasbro won’t be showing off many previously unseen products until a few days into the con, we’ve already gotten two big (but expected) reveals: the Walgreens Exclusive Marvel Legends Yellow Daredevil and Eric O’ Grady Ant-Man figures have now been confirmed!Continue Reading →
From creating Ultron to smacking around his wife (The Wasp), there’s probably been more criticism aimed at poor ol’ Hank Pym over the years than any other member of the Avengers. But one of Hank Pym’s greatest failures came in recent years, when he allowed a bunch of the children he was responsible for at the Avengers Academy to be kidnapped and brutally murdered by Arcade (yes, Arcade). It’s unlikely that many Avengers Academy characters will ever see the light of day in plastic form, but now we can all commemorate this glorious era in Hank Pym’s life with the Marvel Legends Giant-Man figure available as part of the Ant-Man Legends Series!Continue Reading →
If there’s a prize to be won for the most bizarre movie-themed Marvel Legends set ever, the Hasbro Marvel Legends Ant-Man Series definitely wins it. The set includes one movie figure of the titular character, five comic book-based characters related to Ant-Man in varying degrees, and a Build-A-Figure from a different movie altogether. Due to his starring antagonistic role in Avengers Age of Ultron, the Ultron Prime Marvel Legends figure is one of the more anticipated BAFs of 2015. The 8″ Marvel Legends Ultron Prime Build-A-Figure has now arrived… but is it worth buying $120 in other figures to build him?Continue Reading →
