Black Panther Marvel Legends Killmonger Figure Review

Marvel Legends Killmonger Review

Lightbulbs will not be going off in the heads of the vast, vast majority of the billions of people in the world when they hear the name “Erik Killmonger”. Maybe that will change significantly after he appears in a major movie release next month (or maybe not–poor Malekith!), but for now, Killmonger is a bit of a no-name among all but the most hardcore comic fans. Even so, the first super-articulated Marvel Legends Killmonger figure is now available–and he just may end up being one of the surprise hit best figures of 2018…

Marvel Legends Black Bolt Review Black Panther Series 2018

Black Panther Legends Black Bolt Screaming Head

I had been planning to kick off my series of Marvel Legends Black Panther series reviews with Erik Killmonger, but to my surprise, the majority of readers asked for a non-movie figure as the first review instead. In fact, the most requested figure is not even a new figure at all—it’s a repaint with a new head! The Marvel Legends Black Bolt figure is up for order now as a single figure—is he worth having if you don’t have the previous SDCC version (or even if you do)?

Marvel Legends Blade Figure Review & Photos Man-Thing Series

Blade Marvel Legends Netflix Series Figure Wielding Sword

It’s the very last Marvel Legends review of 2017 here on Marvel Toy News! Whether or not I saved “the best” for last I’ll discuss in a bit, but there’s no question today’s figure is the one from the Netflix series we’ve been waiting longest for! Hasbro announced a 6” Blade figure way back in 2012–and 5 years later, he’s finally arrived (with a totally different mold)! Is this Marvel Legends Blade figure worthy of 17 bucks shipped online—not to mention the half a decade wait it took for his release?

Marvel Legends Man-Thing Build-A-Figure Review & Photos

Man-Thing Marvel Legends Build-A-Figure Review

“He who knows fear burns at the Man-Thing’s touch”—and I’ve got plenty of fear to go around, because I’ve got under two weeks to fill in the gaps and complete my Marvel Legends 2017 figure reviews! So let’s get right to it and take a look at the final Build-A-Figure I’ll be reviewing this year. This is a rare instance where the BAF is likely to be the least-enticing character in the wave for most collectors, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a winner! Is the Marvel Legends Man-Thing BAF worth the 35 bucks he’s selling for online?
