I so badly want to get back to posting reviews (I have a floor full of new figures waiting for review like you would not believe) and discussing some of the smaller companies’ new toys that I saw at New York Toy Fair 2017–but it looks like those things are going to have to wait a bit more, because the Hasbro Marvel Legends train isn’t slowing down at all! We only saw them revealed last weekend, but now Spider-Man Homecoming Marvel Legends packaged photos have already turned up!
Hasbro revealed all seven action figures and the “Build-A-Figure” last week, so there’s no shockers here (he was in the last series–ha). Let’s have a look…
Notice that this Web Wings Spider-Man figure has an alternate masked head and two pairs of hands, but no Tom Holland Peter Parker head: you’ll have to buy the two-pack with Homecoming Iron Man for that.
I really, really dig the way the packaging for this movie pops off the shelf because of the blue background and yellow Spider-Man logo really changing things up. I wonder if it’s time for a shake-up to the standard packaging colors…?
After getting the 3.75″ version yesterday that comes with bupkis, it’s gratifying to see the 6″ Moon Knight will still come with alternate hands, a staff, three mini Moonerangs and a big Moonerang boomerang.
Tombstone punches his way into the series at #5. I know Hasbro is working hard to give us modern versions of as many characters as possible, but this is an instance where I would have greatly preferred a classic Marvel Legends Tombstone. This figure has pegwarmer written all over it, sadly.
Lastly, we’ve got the Marvel Legends Vulture movie figure. I’m sure he cost a bundle in unique sculpting, but he really looks lonely and sad in his packaging without his wings. I don’t know how well Vulture will sell to those not planning to buy the whole set and build his wings…
The Vulture Flight Pack Build-A-Figure is a first for Hasbro, and I hope the gamble pays off. The wings have an insane wingspan and loads of sculpting detail and articulation, so Hasbro really went all out with these. I think in person collectors will be really impressed.
The Marvel Legends Spider-Man Homecoming Series figures should be up for order within the next 1-3 months and are scheduled for release in Spring 2017. I’ll send out alerts via the Marvel Toy News Twitter and Facebook Pages as soon as figures go up for order as sets and individuals.
Now that we’ve gotten a look at the finished figures inside their packaging, what do you think of this year’s second batch of Spider-Man Legends, Marvel collectors? Will you buy the whole series to build that 20″+ Vulture Flight Pack, or is that not enough incentive to earn a whole wave purchase from you?
