SDCC 2016: Marvel Legends 2017 4″ Figures Hi-Res Photos!

While the Marvel Legends 6″ line is definitely Hasbro’s marquee superhero product line these days, that doesn’t mean that Hasbro has left the Marvel Universe/Marvel Legends 4″ collectors out to dry! Hasbro announced a multitude of new 3.75″ Marvel Legends 2017 figures at SDCC 2016, and has sent out hi-res photos of the first wave, including X-23 Wolverine, Moon Knight, Maestro and more!

SDCC 2016 Marvel Legends X-23 Wolverine Figure

There’s no denying that the 4″ Marvel Legends line takes a back seat to the 6″ scale in both sales and the number of figures released, and it’s for that reason that many characters are debuting in the smaller scale first–to get collectors to buy figures they otherwise wouldn’t to get a character they want fast.

Such is definitely the case with the female Wolverine, X-23, who makes her Hasbro debut in Wolverine costume in 2017 Wave 1! Tom Taylor’s All-New Wolverine is one of the breakout characters of All-New All-Different Marvel, and I’m pleased to see her getting a figure in this costume so quickly. This Laura figure looks terrific all-around, and will tide me over until we get the eventual six inch X-23 Wolverine.

SDCC 2016 Lady Deadpool Marvel Legends with SquirrelpoolFor those who didn’t get her in the 2013 SDCC Exclusive Deadpool Taco Truck figures set, the Marvel Legends Lady Deadpool figure makes her triumphant return! Lady Deadpool will include a sword and the best pack-in accessory of the year: Squirrelpool!

The figure looks to be unchanged from its initial release, so those who already have her can safely pass.

Marvel Legends 2017 Spider UK 4 Inch Figure2017 will be a big year for Spider-UK, who will be getting figures in both the 3.75″ and 6″ scales to kick off the year!

Unfortunately, whereas the 6″ Spider UK figure is on an all-new body mold, the 4″ version is on my single least-favorite body mold Hasbro has ever done for this scale. Ugh! That upper torso looks awful!

2017 Marvel Legends Invincible Iron Man FigureThe All-New All-Different Invincible Iron Man Marvel Legends figure makes its debut in the 4 inch scale as well.

This is a really weird and interesting design that will definitely stand out from the other (countless) Iron Man figures Hasbro has produced. Hopefully we get figures of some of the other All-New All-Different Avengers characters next year as well.

Marvel Legends Moon Knight SDCC 2016 Figure Reveal

Finally, we’ve got the modern looks of two fan-favorite characters debuting as part of the Marvel Universe scale: Moon Knight and the Maestro (Evil Hulk)!

Even though it’s the modern look for the character in the comics published over the past year, I’m not at all thrilled with the armored look on Maestro (non-bare-chested Maestro just looks wrong to me). However, this modern Moon Knight action figure is one of my favorite Hasbro showings of the con. I’ll be heartbroken if we don’t get a six-inch versions as well (perhaps in the Spider-Man line?).

Marvel Legends Maestro 2017 4 Inch FigureOther figures that were sneak peeks at the Hasbro panel include 4″ Age of Apocalypse Magneto, Jewel (Jessica Jones), Monica Rombeau (Captain Marvel/Photon/Spectrum) and Hydra Captain America.

Marvel Legends 2017 4″ Wave 1 should be available for order in a few months and should arrive during the winter. The 4 inch Hasbro figures have arrived before the start of the new year several times in the past, so we may still see them start to hit before the end of 2016. Stay tuned.

What do you think of Hasbro’s Marvel Legends 3 3/4″ showing at San Diego Comic Con 2016? Does this look like a line on its last legs, or are you feeling good about what’s coming up in the future of this toy line?

  1. Meh. This is a total skip and save money assortment for me and kinda the same for the assortment after that, so it sounds. I’m really sick and tired of all the versions of Spider-man, Iron – man & Wolverine. Where’s the rest of the Brotherhood? Terrax? Where are the FF villains?

    • FF stuff is probably off limits due to that silly editorial stance to punch Fox.

      • Huh. Weird that you’d say that after Hasbro revealed they’re doing a 6-inch Invisible Woman at some point.

  2. Unless I see Lady DP in person and I’m not broke, a pass. I’d probably keep her in package though since I don’t collect the 3.75″ line and maybe resell her if the value goes up to support this hobby even more 😛

  3. I really can’t stand that All-New All-Different Invincible Iron Man armor design. 4 inch, 6 inch, 12 inch, even a Hot Toys version just doesn’t appeal to me. Just something about it I don’t like.

  4. I think these are amazing. The 6″ inch line should be discontinued and all energies and resources devoted only to the 4″ line.

    • Lol hasbro tried discontinuing the 6 inch line and realized what a mistake that was when mattels DC universe six inch line took off. Majority of collectors favor six inch over 4, especially with past legends from toybiz. As long as hasbro can make good baf’s also. Oddly the 4 inch line for gi Joe is hugely popular but they haven’t really made a six inch scale to compare it to, unless you count the sigma stuff. Don’t be surprised if hasbro cancels the 4 inch line before its 6 as its come close before.

    • LMAO!!! The six inch line is going full force with no signs of stopping, marvel universe had its due, its just never going to be as good as the 6 inch so why put as much into it.

    • Really it’s the other way around. The 3.75″ line is kinda crap, and discontinuing it to focus those resources on the 6″ line would be GREAT news.

  5. As a mainly 3 3/4 inch collector, I’m just pleased that we are still getting great figures even if in smaller quantities. I mean 4 inch Star Wars has been degraded with low articulation. So I’m happy the Marvel line is still fully articulated somewhat and using old molds for X 23 Wolverine and other characters. If only they can cut down the price a bit.

    • I’m with you on this Marcus. I am mainly a 3 3/4″ collector as well, and I will take whatever I can get of the Marvel Universe/Infinite/Legends figures. Hasbro is doing amazing things with the 6″ line no doubt, but they are a beast to stand and display. At least I can get this size figure to stand and display without difficulty. The decrease in articulation is disappointing, but the selection and variety in the line still satisfies me despite the decreased articulation, although that Spider UK figure is a total fail, especially compared to the 6″ figure. I’m going to try to hold out and collect the 3 3/4″ line as long as I can.

  6. Hasbro could be making money on both lines but for whatever reason wanted to lame up the 1L18 line to increase profit. I would hate to be a 1:12 collector for A) too much money every year, B) not enough house space to store it. Really if they don’t want to do 1:18 anymore than give it to a company that would. Not saying the few good original mold pieces they show are not nice but that spider-man for example…

  7. Been dying for a new moon knight figure but this is a let down. Cowl/cape looks terrible.

  8. Crap!, was waiting for a new Moon Knight, but seeing there is no waist crunch and Cow/cape looks lackluster.. I’m skipping. X-23 looks good enough, best version so far. As for spider-man there are only 4 costumes I accept… Original black and red (Gerry Drew wears it) The signature suit we all love, Black suit and Superior Spider-Man (because it looks cool) and combines both. Too many is too much. If they must make them all then give us a Jack Kirby Spider-man just for fun.

  9. I. Prefer the 4 inch over the 6 inch. 6 inch just takes up to many space. I hope they start making wwe 4 inch figures

  10. IKR …… they’re all about those 6” figures now … sure they look nice but … the 4” are better I collected movie figures for many years , the 4” are more affordable than the 6” , people are more likely to collect the smaller ones !
