REVIEW: Hascon Marvel Legends X-Force Deadpool 6″ Figure!

Review Hascon Deadpool X-Force Marvel Legends 6" Figure

Although I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from HasCon when it was first announced, the inaugural event turned out to be one of the more unique and focused conventions that I’ve attended. A con where the unifying element is programming and displays of most of my favorite toy brands ever? Sign me up. But even more than the reveals at the show, I was excited to come home with the HasCon Exclusive Marvel Legends X-Force Deadpool. He’s selling for $50+ on the aftermarket and goes up for order on HTS a week from today–should you get one?

Hascon Marvel Legends Hydra Pack Set Packaged

One of the upcoming items that Hasbro was the absolute most enthusiastic about at the HasCon Marvel Legends panel this weekend was the Toys R Us Exclusive Marvel Legends Hydra Troopers two-pack, which was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con 2017. Collectors have been asking for a while when the set would be released, and not only was there a final packaged sample on the floor at the show, but the first ML Hydra Troopers pack has also now been found in a store (and of course, immediately appeared on eBay)!

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…

HasCon Marvel Legends Mohawk Storm 2018 Figure

I was not at all sure that we’d be seeing any of the Marvel Legends 2018 X-Men series at HasCon this weekend, but at their inaugural convention, Hasbro was aiming to blow us away! And so, while we only got to see less than half of the wave, we did get to see three jaw-dropping headliners for the series: Tiger Stripe Wolverine, Mohawk Storm, and the first single-packed Hasbro Psylocke 6″ figure ever!

HasCon Marvel Legends 2018 Spider-Woman Figure

While there weren’t any previously-unrevealed Spider-Man Marvel Legends 2018 figures on display at HasCon this morning, the five figures previously-revealed for the next wave were all present and spotlighted at the Marvel booth on the floor, including the Lizard Build-A-Figure, Gwenpool, Lasher, Spider-Punk, and my favorite: Mysterio. And at the Marvel Legends panel this evening, one more hero joined the fight: a modern Marvel Legends Spider-Woman figure!

HasCon: Marvel Legends Back in Black Deadpool Packaged!

BackInBlack

Totally unexpectedly and out of the blue, the GameStop Exclusive Marvel Legends Back in Black Deadpool debuted in packaged form at the GameStop Expo in Las Vegas at the end of August. I’ve been waiting patiently to take some close-up, hi-res photos of Symbiote Deadpool ever since (I know, I have some grand ambitions in my life), and this morning at HasCon 2017, I finally got my wish! As far as Marvel Legends packaging goes, this one is a winner!

As expected, all of the Marvel Legends figures that were revealed at San Diego Comic Con 2017 are also on display at HasCon 2017 this morning. There aren’t any new figures on display yet, but we do have confirmation of alternate heads coming with two of the figures first shown at SDCC 2017: Black Panther Marvel Legends Black Bolt and Namor!

Marvel Legends Sasquatch Build-A-Figure Revealed! Deadpool Series

FanExpo Canada Marvel Legends Sasquatch Revealed

We’re just one week out from the inaugural HasCon, but before Hasbro makes their HasCon reveals, they had one more figure that they wanted to show off first at FanExpo Canada in Toronto this week. Hasbro said they didn’t want to show the 2018 Marvel Legends Deadpool Series Build-A-Figure at SDCC 2017, and now we know why: it’s because he’s Canadian and wanted to make his grand debut in Toronto! The Marvel Legends Sasquatch Build-A-Figure has now been revealed!

Marvel Legends Human Torch Released! Photos & Impressions!

Marvel Legends Human Torch 6 Inch Figure Out of Package

No one ever said building a new Marvel Legends Fantastic Four would be easy (or fast)! It’s been a lengthy wait since the new Marvel Legends Invisible Woman first appeared in January, but Sue Storm’s little brother has finally flamed onto store shelves in North America… in Canada (and on ebay), at least! We’ll be waiting just a wee bit longer for Johnny to reach the United States, but in the meantime, here’s some in-hand photos and impressions of the Exclusive Marvel Legends Human Torch!

Marvel Legends Hela Figure Review & Photos Thor Ragnarok Series

Review Marvel Legends Hela Thor Ragnarok Movie Figure

Had Marvel Studios not selected Hela to be the primary antagonist of Thor Ragnarok, it’s very likely we’d have never seen her gracing local retail shelves in toy from any company. Ever. But they did, and now Hela is about to become among the most recognizable Marvel female characters in the world! As such, Hasbro is releasing a non-exclusive Marvel Legends Hela figure for the very first time in the Thor Ragnarok series! Is this MCU Hela all we could have hoped for?

Marvel Legends Gladiator Thor Review & Photos Ragnarok

6" Marvel Legends Gladiator Thor Chris Hemsworth Portrait

While the upcoming MCU movie this fall may be called “Thor Ragnarok”, the characters everyone is interested in talking about are Hela, Hulk, Loki and Valkyrie, with the titular character nowhere to be found. So it’s not a big surprise that, even in his own 6″ figure series, the Marvel Legends Gladiator Thor figure is readily available for MSRP and easy as pie to find online. But while he’s not exactly a hot commodity, it turns out that this 6″ Gladiator Thor Ragnarok figure is one of best figures in the wave…

REVIEW: Marvel Legends Gladiator Hulk Build-A-Figure

Close-Up of Marvel Legends Hulk Build-A-Figure Head Ragnarok

I was planning on posting my review of the Hasbro Marvel Legends Gladiator Hulk Build-A-Figure over the weekend, but I was foiled by my hosting company’s incompetence causing the site to be offline for half a week. Alas. But hey, better late than never, right? The Marvel Legends Gladiator Hulk BAF is selling for $60+ all by his lonesome on the aftermarket, and was one of the most-anticipated Build-A-Figures in quite some time (and perhaps ever)–but is this Hulk worth buying six other figures to build? Let’s find out…

Marvel Unlimited Plus Marvel Legends Tony Stark 6″ Revealed!

Marvel Unlimited Plus Exclusive Marvel Legends Tony Stark Figure 2018

…And we’re back! I do apologize for the downtime over the course of the past few days, as what was supposed to be a quick upgrade to a faster server turned into 100+ hours of downtime. I was so bored while this site was down, I even cranked out a review of DC Multiverse Justice League Aquaman! But luckily, now that we’re back up and running, there’s some actual new Marvel toy news to report: the Marvel Unlimited Plus 2018 Exclusive Marvel Legends Tony Stark figure has now been revealed!

Marvel Legends Ares Review & Photos Thor Ragnarok Series

Review Marvel Legends Ares Figure Thor Ragnarok

Sometimes figure re-releases end up being a disappointment, as the demand for a reissued figure ends up being less than the manufacturer thought and the toy ends up rotting off the pegs. This is not one of those times. Collectors have been calling out for a re-release of Marvel Legends Ares Build-A-Figure for years and paying $100+ for him in the meantime. Hasbro has heard fans’ cries and responded–with the new and improved Thor Ragnarok Marvel Legends Ares figure!
