HasCon: Marvel Legends Shuri! Paladin! King Cobra! Thanos!

Marvel Legends Thanos with Infinity Gauntlet Walmart Exclusive

I posted earlier today about the megaton lineup of the first half of the 2018 X-Men Marvel Legends Apocalypse series, as well as the new Spider-Woman, but that’s far from all Hasbro had up their sleeves at the HasCon panel tonight! In addition, we saw the debuts of Marvel Legends Shuri, King Cobra, Invincible Iron Man, Thanos with Infinity Gauntlet, Paladin and more! I stopped by the Hasbro booth one last time tonight to snap photos of them all up-close…

Black Panther Marvel Legends Namor & Black Bolt Figures! SDCC

Black Panther Marvel Legends Black Bolt Figure

Either the excitement of the Hasbro SDCC 2017 panel was just too much for me or I’m just old (hint: it’s the latter), because I plum fell asleep while in the process of doing the write-ups with the Marvel Legends hi-res photos. But I’m awake again, so let’s kick off the final day of Comic-Con with a look at the first two figures from the 2018 Marvel Legends Black Panther movie series: Black Bolt and Namor!

2018 Marvel Legends 12″ Black Panther Figure Revealed!

Marvel Legends Black Panther 12" Figure

Just like I wasn’t expecting to see a number of Marvel statue reveals at Star Wars Celebration Orlando, I really didn’t think we’d see anything new debut at D23 Expo 2017. But for the first time ever, Hasbro premiered a new Marvel Legends figure at D23 over the weekend–and it’s actually the very first Marvel Legends 2018 figure of any kind to be revealed! Coming our way in spring 2018: the Marvel Legends 12″ Black Panther figure in movie costume!

Play Arts Kai Black Panther Figure Photos & Up for Order!

Square-Enix Play Arts Kai Black Panther Figure

Although it’s far from the cheapest line of Marvel import figures out there, the Square-Enix Play Arts Kai Marvel Variant line has managed to survive longer than most PAK series and is offering a more diverse assortment of characters than almost any other import Marvel toy line in the land. And while I didn’t expect to see any new figures revealed for the lineup until SDCC 2017, Square-Enix has one that they wanted to get solicited and produced before the end of the year for a very smart reason–the Play Arts Kai Black Panther is now up for order!

Marvel Legends Civil War 4″ 2-Packs Released! Agent 13!

Marvel Legends Civil War Exclusive 2-Packs Released

Having grossed over a billion dollars at the worldwide box office thus far, it’s easy to assert that Captain America: Civil War has been the blockbuster success it was intended to be. What hasn’t been so easy, however, is finding collector-level Civil War toys in retail stores thus far. But while the Marvel Legends 6″ figures are still few and far between at retail, at least some new movie toys are making it out: the Toys R Us exclusive Marvel Legends 2-Packs containing Black Panther, Agent 13, and comic-based Iron Man and Captain America have now been released!

Marvel Legends Civil War Black Panther 6″ Figure Review

Marvel Legends Black Panther Review Civil War

I can only dance around talking about the most popular figure in the Marvel Legends Civil War series for so long, so after many, many requests, it’s finally time to talk about T’Challa! The Civil War Marvel Legends Black Panther figure is selling for $30+ online and is next to impossible to find in retail stores right now.

For all the effort finding him requires, it’d be a huge letdown if this Black Panther 6″ figure wasn’t exceptional. Luckily, he absolutely is…

Hot Toys Civil War Black Panther Figure

Although T’Challa wasn’t shown amongst the first batch of Captain America: Civil War sixth scale figures prototypes, it was a question of when–not if–a Hot Toys Black Panther figure would make its debut.

I thought we might be waiting until after more of the returning heroes went up for order until we saw him, but the hype for Black Panther is hot and so his sixth scale figure: the Hot Toys Black Panther figure is now up for order!

Civil War Funko Black Panther POP Vinyl Review & Photos

Funko Black Panther POP Vinyl Figure Review

While I knew that Black Panther making his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as part of this summer’s Captain America: Civil War movie was going to be a big deal, I was totally unprepared for the overwhelming hype and demand for Black Panther toys that has manifested over the last few months. Not only is the Marvel Legends Black Panther selling for hundreds on the aftermarket, but even his POP Vinyl has been a tough grab. In fact, I had to grab my Funko Black Panther POP Vinyl online: was be worth it?

But upon entering the Funko booth, my eyes immediately shot to an item that I instantly knew hadn’t been previously shown or announced anywhere else in the world: a rare Chase Dorbz Unmasked Black Panther figure!

Marvel Select Black Panther Figure Packaged

Ordinarily I’m not a Monday person, but when Diamond Select Toys announced that two new comics-based Marvel Select figures would be revealed on Monday, February 1st 2016, I knew that this Monday was gonna be a good one–and so it is! After DST announced there was no Black Panther in the Civil War movie line, I knew it was a matter of time until a comics Black Panther was announced. And now he has been–the exclusive Marvel Select Black Panther figure is now up for order… and he’s brought a new Avenging Captain America with him!
