Marvel Legends Spider-Man Spider-UK Benchpresses Symbiote Spider-Man

Need more proof that we’re living in a true Golden Age for Marvel toys and collectibles? How about the fact that an alternate universe Spider-Man can have his first appearance, take part in a couple stories and then an amazing super-articulated action figure in our hands in just over two years? Though he’s still slightly obscure and available for below MSRP online, the Hasbro Marvel Legends Spider-UK turns out to be a surprisingly awesome action figure…

Marvel Legends Groot Evolution Figure Review & Photos

Marvel Legends Groot Evolution Figures Review Photos

I’m about as “all-in” as it gets when it comes to Guardians of the Galaxy toys and collectibles, so when an early shipment of the Toys R Us Exclusive Marvel Legends Groot Evolution figure set hit online last week, it was the very definition of “instant purchase”. Three days later, the Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends 2017 Groot Evolution Pack has arrived! And I am very, very pleased with the most Groot-iful figure set ever…

Marvel Legends The Raft Spider-Man vs. Black Costume Spider-Man Comparison

Now that all the excitement and hysteria brought about by the mixture of the Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy figures hitting Amazon and the first wave of 2017 Marvel Legends exclusives being leaked is over, I can get back to catching up on reviews. And today’s spotlight falls on a figure that’s still quite difficult to find in stores despite being double-packed in cases: the 2017 Marvel Legends Symbiote Spider-Man (Black Costume) 6″ figure!

The main goal of Marvel Toy News as a website is to be an comprehensive in discussing as many aspects of Marvel toy collecting as possible, so when we get requests for coverage of a new line, I take notice.

Marvel Legends Ms. Marvel Kamala Khan Figure Review 2017

Ms. Marvel Kamala Khan Marvel Legends Embiggened Right Arm

Of all the characters in the first wave of Spider-Man Marvel Legends 2017 figures, none of them are getting anywhere near the amount of hype as the new inheritor of the name Ms. Marvel–Kamala Khan! The Pakistani-American superheroine has had plenty of buzz around her since she got her powers two years ago, and the time has come for her first articulated action figure! But while Marvel Legends Kamala Khan selling for a mint right now online, is she also a risky purchase…?

Marvel Legends Morbius 3.75″ Figure Review & Photos

Marvel Legends Morbius 3.75" Action Figure

I had been planning on today’s Marvel Legends review being the new 6″ Kamala Khan Ms. Marvel figure, but those plans went off the rails when Kamala’s arm peg broke in half at the elbow. And so, while I hunt for a Ms. Marvel replacement, the former Marvel Universe 3.75″ line gets the spotlight instead tonight! The 4″ Marvel Legends Morbius is currently marked down to $3 online from his $12.99 MSRP, but is this figure really all that bad…?

2017 Marvel Legends Sandman Build-A-Figure Review

Hasbro Sandman Legends Figure Killing Spider-Man

It doesn’t happen every year, but this winter we’ve been lucky enough for some stores to start receiving the first wave of 2017 Marvel Legends figures before the new year even rolls around! And since I’ve been so blessed as to track down every figure in the wave early, I’d be remiss if I didn’t devote some time to a review of the Build-A-Figure before the holidays. And so, though he isn’t the first Marvel Legends Sandman figure ever, the Sandman Build-A-Figure is definitely the best…

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?

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…
