Considering what a complete and utter pain it’s been in 2014 to track down any Marvel Legends figures that aren’t characters named “Captain America” or “Spider-Man”, I’ve been half-dreading the eventual release of the Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy figures. But no longer! Not only has the “official” street date for them been revealed, but all six Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends figures (including Nova and Gamora) are now available individually for pre-order!
The Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Infinite Series consists of six figures that each include one or more Groot Build-A-Figure pieces for building the enormous 9″ Marvel Legends Groot figure. The figures include the Modern Nova Marvel Legends figure (above), as well as:
[I was almost going to pass on the Cosmic Armor Iron Man Marvel Legends figure, as I don’t have much use for an armor that Iron Man only wore in a handful of Marvel NOW! comic books, but then I came to my sense and realized I needed his Groot Build-A-Figure piece, so I ended up ordering Cosmic Iron Man as well.]
To the delight of Hasbro Marvel Legends 6″ collectors everywhere, the Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Infinite Series figures are now available for pre-order from Amazon for $21.99 each plus free shipping. Given that the MSRP on these figures is $19.99 and it’d cost me $21.59 after tax for each in my local stores–if I could find them all at once–I was happy to pre-order now and secure my figures without having to worry, drive around, or purchase an entire case.
What do you think, Marvel collectors? Are you up for completing your Marvel Legends GOTG series quickly and easily via pre-order, or are you going to wait and see if you can get a better deal once these figures are officially in stores?
