Toy Fair 2016: Marvel Legends 2016 Spider-Man Wave 2!

While Hasbro was only able to show off half of the Marvel Legends Doctor Strange series of figures (due to the movie characters making up part of the assortment), they made up for it in a big way by sharing half of the Marvel Legends 2016 Spider-Man Wave 2 figures as well! The big star of the show here is the new 6″ Marvel Legends Miles Morales Spider-Man figure, but he’s joined by a number of heavy-hitters, including Ultimate Spider-Man Peter Parker, a new Hobgoblin and more!

With the number of six inch action figures that Hasbro had rumored to be in the pipeline, I knew it was gonna be a crazy New York Toy Fair this weekend. But even I felt a little overwhelmed by the sheer number of figures announced–and I haven’t even talked about the insane number of exclusives coming out yet!

And so, with the magnitude of figures that we had revealed this weekend, I’m not feeling too disappointed that we only got to see about half of the 2016 Spider-Man Legends Wave 2 figures on display. Of course–it helps that the characters that Hasbro did choose to show off are all major headliners!

The figures revealed today for the 6″ Marvel Legends Spider-Man 2016 Wave 2 series are:

  • Ultimate Spider-Man (Teenage Peter Parker)
  • Miles Morales Spider-Man (Ultimate Spider-Man)
  • Hobgoblin (Roderick Kingsley Version)
  • Silk (Cindy Moon)

He wasn’t shown on display with both heads, but the new 6″ Hobgoblin will come with both a “demonic mask” head and also a Roderick Kingsley Hobgoblin head.

Now that’s he’s part of the Marvel Universe proper, we badly needed a new Marvel Legends Ultimate Spider-Man Miles Morales six-inch figure, so I’m beyond psyched to see him here. And hey–he and Ultimate Peter Parker even get their own all-new teenage boy buck mold so they can really shine! Wicked!

Silk (AKA Cindy Moon) is actually one of the few modern Spider-Man characters that I’m not really a fan of, but I know a lot of people have been enjoying her comic book series, so I’m glad to see her get her own major action figure so quickly for those fans. And hey–I may not love the character, but this is a fantastic-looking action figure of Silk! I’m in for her, even if she’s not my favorite!

The other four figures that were revealed today were all found in the same computer database listing as this trio, so I’d say that it’s almost certain that Shocker and company will be revealed as the remainder of this lineup over the course of the next few months.

What are your thoughts on the first quartet of figures revealed for this summer’s Spider-Man Legends wave, Marvel collectors? Are you hoping that the rumored trio of supplements to this series are true? And for that matter, just who are you hoping ends up being revealed as the next Spider-Man Build-A-Figure?

  1. Hallelujah! I’ve been waiting on a Miles Morales Legends figure forever.

    Is the Hobgoblin a new sculpt, or reusing parts of the Goblin Knight BAF?

  2. I want that ultimate Peter Parker so I can display him with my marvel select ultimate carnage

  3. Can we please get a LUKE CAGE!!!!!!! And a new Punisher (I’m hoping we get both thanks to Netflix!)… A new Wolverine wouldn’t hurt either… And Blade… Lol

    • We Need Ultimate Venom, The Best Looking Venom In My Opinion, The Closet thing to that is a 4 or 5 inch Venom from Spectacular Spider-Man, That I have. But, I need A Marvel Legends version.

    • They did a BAF puck a few years ago. Anna Maria isn’t a super hero so probably never going to do her.

  4. I was hoping for an action figure of just Peter Parker with civilian clothing with maybe a camera and backpack or Spider-man Noir.

  5. Man, I’m seriously thrilled to be getting the teenage size Peter and Miles. That’s fantastic.

    Is Silk on the Spider-Girl body mold or the Spider-Woman body mold? I can’t tell the scale in these pictures.

    .

    So, I’m guessing that when we get a Green Goblin it is going to be basically the same as Hobgoblin, except with a different head, no cape, and a palette swap. Hopefully a different glider, and hopefully a Norman Osborn head that fits the Iron Patriot figure.
    Hopefully they figure out a way to make Green Goblin more unigue than that when they get around to him, but sing this is obviously the new Goblin body mold, I’m not too optimistic.

  6. Hobgoblin is Roderick Kingsley. Not Robert. Just a nitpicky editorial note. 🙂 Fantastic coverage though BTW….the best pics I’ve seen today!

    • It’s sad that I’ve probably read 100+ comics with Roderick Kingsley in them and still got his name wrong. =D

      Oh, and thanks–I took about quadruple that number of photos at the show trying to get good ones!

  7. I wish instead of a new peter parker, we would’ve gotten a manga verse spiderman. The head is perfect for that figure.

    • It’s good to FINALLY have a teenage Peter Parker, but this new mold means we might get Mangaverse Spidey now.

  8. Is Silk on the same body mold the used for Spider Gwen?? Or female Beatle???
    I think the young-girl-buck wouldn’t work well for her

  9. I’m sure they’ll fix it before release but the webbing on Silk’s stomach isn’t done. I hope they fix it.

  10. I’m putting together a Daredevil/Heroes for Hire display, do you guys think this new (Peter Parker) Spider-Man would work for that, or should I try to go back and get the one from last year?

  11. Loving this Hob-goblin! I like the all the female figures announced for 2016 but I HATE the female buck!!! Why they can’t have articulation as great as Spider man, dare devil or iron fist figures is beyond me.

    • Gotta keep badgering Hasbro about the damn female molds.
      Shartimus Prime just grilled them about it at Toy Fair while he was interviewing them, and they know some people aren’t happy about it, but I’m not sure if they grasp HOW annoyed people are by it.

      • I guess we all need to harass them lol. My first marvel legend was the Hawkeye from the Odin BAF. I was stunned by how great the figure is, and haven’t looked back. The females are good – but no where as good as the male bucks. Thats a shame because the a lot of the figure’s they are doing demand better articulation.

      • I’m a casual collector or Marvel Legends and I haven’t really kept up. Can you explain what some of the gripes are with the female molds aside from needing interchangeable hands?

        • My grips are that they are nowhere as articulated as the male bucks – not even close. The male bucks look great with tons of articulation points. I dislike the weak elbow and ankle joints. I think Hasbro fails almost every release when it comes to additional hand/ fist choices.

          There are probably more but I can’t think what they are lol

  12. This wave looks incredible! I can’t wait for Electro and Shocker to be shown, plus that Hobgoblin looks very nice. I am personally a fan of the smaller female mold used for Silk, but I agree with those who want more articulation on it.

    I would love to see another classic Spidey villain BAF. Lizard, Sandman, Doc Ock, or even Hydro-Man would be awesome.

    Does anyone know the expected release date for these?

  13. I would really like to see Man-Spider, Spiderman 6 Arms, mutated Morbius, some of the other symbites Scream, Slasher, Female Venom perhaps
