SDCC 2016 Exclusive Marvel Legends Figures Revealed?

And the big Hasbro Marvel Legends news keeps right on coming this week! Hot on the heels of three new series of Marvel Legends 6″ figures going up for order in the past 24 hours, a mysterious auction listing has now turned up online that shows off what’s almost certainly this year’s SDCC 2016 Exclusive Marvel Legends 4″ figures set: Marvel Legends The Collector, Howard the Duck, Cosmo the Space Dog, Moon Boy and Lockjaw!

Just when I thought that ordering the Marvel Legends X-Men series was going to be the high point of my week (EE has the best deal with a set of 8 for $19.99 per figure and free shipping, by the way), Hasbro has to go and come up with a set of Marvel figures that appeals to my quirky sensibilities like no other set before: it’s what looks to be a San Diego Comic-Con 2016 Exclusive Marvel Legends Collector’s Menagerie set!

I can’t identify the accessories in this image off the top of my head (help me out, readers), but I am pumped about the five figures included in this box set!

Much like The Collector (best known for his role in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie) loves collecting oddities from around the universe, this set gathers up some of the oddball characters that are too niche to include in a mainstream mass-market toy line!

Marvel Legends The Collector and Moonboy SDCC 2016 FiguresThis Marvel Universe (AKA Marvel Legends 3.75″ scale) set includes the following:

  • The Collector (Comics-Based)
  • Moon Boy (of “Devil Dinosaur and Moon Boy”) — 100% New Mold
  • Cosmo the Space Dog — 100% New Mold
  • Howard the Duck — 100% New Mold
  • Lockjaw the Teleporting Inhuman Dog — 100% New Mold

Five characters never-before-done in this scale, and four of them are all-new molds! Does it get any better than this?! Moon Boy is a Jack Kirby-created character who’s never had any kind of toy or figure before, so I think he’s especially a treat. Dare we dream Hasbro is planning a Marvel Legends Devil Dinosaur figure for release someday?!

Honestly, I’ve been expecting some sort of weird Marvel Universe scale set to be announced any day now, as the Marvel Legends Lockjaw figure shown during the Hasbro panel last year has never had any release details revealed to-date. But I never expected we’d see actual figurines of Cosmo the Space Dog and Moon Boy! Crazy!!

SDCC 2016 Exclusive Marvel Legends Lockjaw Howard the Duck Moon Boy CollectorWhat do you think of what is presumably the very first Hasbro Marvel Legends SDCC 2016 Exclusive set of figures to be revealed, Marvel collectors? Do you like this selection of oddball characters that will help flesh out the 4″ Marvel Universe, or were you hoping for some characters that are a bit more, well… famous?

  1. These are definitely some odd selections, but seem to be setting up the next GOTG movie. As for what figures I’d like to see? Phoenix/Dark Phoenix/Black Queen and any of the Hellfire Club. I’d also love to see a classic Polaris, Ka-Zar, Sauron, Black Tom Cassidy, Magma, Sunspot, Sunfire (Age of Apocalypse version), and any of the Imperial Guard characters would be awesome!!! Yepper – I’m a Chris Claremont/John Byrne throwback!!!

  2. Very disappointing and more the reason why I am completely done with this scale ml. So I am going to guess this set will be around 60-80 dollars and you get 1 fully articulated fig, a semi artic figure and 3 statues. Very underwhelming. They could have at least articulated howard like rocket. I will be saving money this year now that I no longer collect this line.

  3. Yeah, I was going to say that Lockjaw would look great with my Smurf collection!

  4. I’m actually really excited by this. and it looks like it comes with the Scorpio Key(last seen in The Amazing Spider-Man), the cask of a 1,000 (from Simonson’s Thor Run) and the Wand of Watoomb (The macguffin from the annual where Dr Strange and Spider-man teamed up for the first time) all major accessories. Plus a cosmo? sign me up.

    • You win the prize for naming the accessories that I could not! Congratulations, Jonathan! =D

  5. The yellow thing is the “Wand of Watoomb”, and the green thing is the “Zodiac Key”. Love this set!!

  6. A comic-based Collector, a zodiac key and a Wand of Watoomb? Someone at Hasbro has been doing their homework on old school Marvel. I am certainly stoked to see other Cosmic ML figures in the near future. I am an Inhumans fan so Lockjaw is a must. Also, the zodiac key and the comic based “white” Nick Fury leaves me with a glimmer of hope that a Steranko Scorpio (aka Jake Fury) may be in the works.

  7. That yellow key is also the same shape as one of the “Mystic Keys” from the Marvel Micronauts 80’s comic (issues 29-34). Interesting given that another Micronauts toy is already in Hasbro’s exclusives for this year.
