Things didn’t go as planned as far as secrecy goes with the soon-arriving Hasbro Marvel Legends Captain America Civil War figures wave. Images of both the figures and the top-secret Giant-Man Build-A-Figure leaked out long before they were meant to. But now Hasbro is finally ready to show all their cards, and has released official photos of the entire Marvel Legends Civil War wave!
In fact, the figures have even started being sold on eBay, where the new Marvel Legends Black Panther is selling for–I kid you not–hundreds of dollars… without a Build-A-Figure part. Crazy, right?!
Even so, one thing that we hadn’t seen–at least until today–was official, super high resolution images of all seven figures in this wave and their accessories! Let’s take a look…
While I’m not giddy with glee about getting last year’s Age of Ultron Captain America 6″ figure slightly repainted again this year, I don’t think we could reasonably expect Hasbro to not put a movie Cap figure in the Civil War wave.
This is our first really good look at the Giant Man BAF head that comes with Captain America, and I’m happy to say that Hasbro has the translucent lenses on Giant-Man’s helmet looking just as good as the Funko Giant-Man POP Vinyl figure that I released last week!
The armor itself looks fantastic–easily one of the better movie Iron Man figures Hasbro has released–but it’s the first six inch scale effects pieces and interchangeable hands that really sell me on this action figure.
The 6″ Civil War Black Panther Marvel Legends figure is easily the figure that’s accumulating more hype than any other figure in this wave. I think Hasbro is crazy to pack T’Challa at just one-per-case, as this figure is already crazy hot and selling for mind-blowing prices on the aftermarket.
Red Guardian is a classic Marvel character who’s not exactly a household name, but the Soviet superhero made recent appearances in the “Avengers Assemble” cartoon, so I think at least some of the younger generation of fans know who he is.
It’s definitely a sign that the world is a-changin’ when I have readers write in to ask me why Hasbro’s Nick Fury action figure is “a white guy”, but I think this very classic version of Nick Fury will still be able to challenge movie Black Panther for the title of “most difficult to obtain” figure in this wave.
