Marvel Legends - What We Know After #NYCC 2018

Recommended Posts

With so many new Marvel Legends figures constantly being thrown at us by Hasbro, I often like to recap everything we know about the line after a major news event like this weeks New York Comic Con. So here is a breakdown of everything we know or think we may know up until today.

First if you haven't already, be sure to check out my video recapping all the reveals made on Thursday's Hasbro Marvel Round Table.
 



So starting off with the 6" Marvel Legends Rider Series we are getting early next year (if not sooner) the new Deadpool with Scooter and the X-Men's Professor Xavier with 90's Hoover Chair.

Deadpool-With-Scooter__scaled_600.jpg



The Deadpool set will include Deadpool, Dogpool, Squirrelpool, red scooter, sticker sheet to help customize the scooter and an alternate Bob the hydra soldier headsculpt that can be used with a preexisting Hydra Soldier figure.

The Professor X set comes with Professor X, Hoover Chair with arm controls,removable blanket and stand. It also comes with a Cerebo helmet with telekinetic effect piece and alternate Shadow King headsculpt that will fit on the upcoming Spider-Man Kingpin Build-A-Figure.

Speaking of X-Men, we got several new reveals for the next X-Men wave. At San Diego Comic Con we learned that the next wave would include figures of Blink, Gambit and Reavers Skullbuster.

At the Canadian Fan Expo we saw a new Weapon X figure which Hasbro revealed this week was also part of this X-Men wave.
 

Marvel%20Legends%20Weapon%20X%20Figure__scaled_600.jpg



And then this week we saw a new X-Factor Forge, 90's Jim Lee Style Jubilee and Caliban Build-A-Figure revealed.
 

2018-NYCC-Hasbro-Marvel-Legends37__scaled_600.jpg

 

2018-NYCC-Hasbro-Marvel-Legends01__scaled_600.jpg

 

2018-NYCC-Hasbro-Marvel-Legends81__scaled_600.jpg



That leaves one more X-Men figure for this wave to be revealed. It is not likely the Mystique figure revealed at the Canadian Fan Expo as we are pretty sure that will be a Walgreens exclusive.
 

Marvel%20Legends%20Mystique%20Figure__scaled_600.jpg



The Guardian and Wendigo figures that were also revealed during the Canadian Fan Expo are likely going to be part of the next Deadpool wave, though that has not yet been confirmed by Hasbro.
 

Marvel%20Legends%20Guardian%20Figure__scaled_600.jpg

 

Marvel%20Legends%20Wendigo%20Figure__scaled_600.jpg



For the next Spider-Man wave, we had seen previously at SDCC the Modern Symbiote Spider-Man, Red Goblin, Black Cat, Silver Sable and Kingpin Build-A-Figure. Kingpin will have alternate head.
 

2018-NYCC-Hasbro-Marvel-Legends56__scaled_600.jpg

 

2018-NYCC-Hasbro-Marvel-Legends54__scaled_600.jpg

 

2018-NYCC-Hasbro-Marvel-Legends51__scaled_600.jpg

 

2018-NYCC-Hasbro-Marvel-Legends48__scaled_600.jpg

 

2018-NYCC-Hasbro-Marvel-Legends45__scaled_600.jpg



This week it was revealed the original New Warriors leader Night Thrasher would be joining the line-up. A skateboard that fits on his back will be included.
 

Marvel%20Legends%20Series%206-inch%20Night%20Thrasher%20Figure%20(Spider-Man,%20Wave%201)__scaled_600.jpg



That means there is likely one-two more figure for this Spider-Man wave to be revealed. Both the X-Men and Spider-Man waves should be out by early next year, if not sooner.

On the Avengers front, we don't have a whole lot of concrete details for the next wave. At San Diego Comic Con they revealed a new Hercules figures but did not confirm what wave or how it would be released.
 

2018-NYCC-Hasbro-Marvel-Legends02__scaled_600.jpg



This week they revealed a new Beta Ray Bill figure with Stormbreaker, but again did not tell us what wave this would be part of or how it would be released. We do know Bill will not be a Build-A-Figure.
 

2018-NYCC-Hasbro-Marvel-Legends58__scaled_600.jpg



We also saw this week that the remaining two members of Thanos' Black Order from Avengers: Infinity War will be getting the figure treatment. Ebony Maw & Corvus Glaive have been in high demand by many collectors, but Hasbro was once again mum on the details of how or where two would see release.
 

2018-NYCC-Hasbro-Marvel-Legends68__scaled_600.jpg

 

2018-NYCC-Hasbro-Marvel-Legends85__scaled_600.jpg


Finally we have Nighthawk and Living Laser that were revealed at the Unboxing Convention.
 

HasbroPR-Marvel-Legends-Living-Laser-01__scaled_600.jpg

 

HasbroPR-Marvel-Legends-Nighthawk-01__scaled_600.jpg



It's possible all six figures will be part of the next Avengers wave, but right now we can't say for sure.



Surprisingly nothing this week was revealed for the Captain Marvel MCU wave that was partially revealed via Amazon a could weeks ago. So at this time all we know is that we will be getting Captain Marvel, Skrull, Young Nick Fury and Mar-Vell. The Build-A-Figure will be the Kree Sentry revealed at the Unboxing Convention. Two, possibly three more figures should be on tap for this wave, one of which is likely the comic book based Genis-Vell revealed at SDCC.

For Marvel Legends store exclusives we got a good look at the packaging for the upcoming Gamestop PS4 Spider-Man which will be out by the end of the year.
 

2018-NYCC-Hasbro-Marvel-Legends93__scaled_600.jpg

 

2018-NYCC-Hasbro-Marvel-Legends94__scaled_600.jpg



Hasbro this week revealed a Marvel Legends Hail-Hydra Figure 2-Pack which is a shared exclusive between Gamestop and online etailers. This set features Supreme Leader Captain America and Arnim Zola. You can pre-order it now at places like Megalopolis.Toys and it will be released in March 2019.
 

2018-NYCC-Hasbro-Marvel-Legends72__scaled_600.jpg

 

2018-NYCC-Hasbro-Marvel-Legends74__scaled_600.jpg



For a second 2-Pack, look for a new one based on the classic comic storyline called "Kraven's Last Hunt". This set will feature an unmasked Black Costume Spider-Man and Kraven figure with new headsculpt. No details on how or when this one will be released, but my money is on it being a Target exclusive.
 

2018-NYCC-Hasbro-Marvel-Legends62__scaled_600.jpg

 

2018-NYCC-Hasbro-Marvel-Legends66__scaled_600.jpg



This year's Marvel Comics Unlimited Subscription service figure has been revealed and it's Punisher Venom. Using Hasbro's recent Venom mold this version has a Punisher like symbol on it's chest and comes with two weapons.
 

Punisher-Venom__scaled_600.jpg



Hasbro's second wave of 6" Marvel Legends Toy Biz Tribute figures which includes Ant-Man, Wasp (blue outfit), Black Panther, Scarlet Spider with unmasked head, Sleeveless Hawkeye and Vision with a new cape and random Ultron head should be hitting shelves any day now.

as will their second Black Panther movie wave which includes Black Panther with new unmasked head, T'Chaka, Erik Killmonger in fatigues with removable Wakandian ceremonial mask, Ulysses Klaue with alternate gun arm, Vibranium Powered Black Panther and Ayo with two alternate heads so you can army build the Wakanda’s Dora Milaje. The Build-A-Figure will be M'Baku (Man-Ape).

We still don't know how the Black Panther MCU Shuri figure teased at SDCC will be released.
 

Hasbro-Marvel-2018-SDCC%2024__scaled_600.jpg



There also a few remaining teases Hasbro showed at SDCC we don't have any more details about such as the Magneto helmet or the headsulpt that looks like Quicksilver.
 

IMG_2230__scaled_600.jpg

 

IMG_2232__scaled_600.jpg



One other thing I should note. Hasbro during their roundtable made indications that the Thing figure was rounding out their series Fantastic Four Walgreens exclusive while X-Men would be taking over with Magik which is hitting shelves now. This by no means we won't be seeing the likes of Dr. Doom or or Super Skrull at some point, but if we do they might be done as a general release. Hasbro also indicated that they know they are overdue for a newly sculpted comic book based Hulk figure and Bag-Head Spider-Man is on their list of ones they want to do.

Excellent recap, appreciate all the collected information being pull together in one area. Hasbro has been pumping out Legends like crazy and not just a bunch of Spider-Man/Wolverine variants. We’re actually getting obscure characters highly prized by collectors: Sauron, Wendigo, Shadow King, etc. This a golden era for collecting. Thanks again for sharing the info and pics. Great work!

Nice find. Hercules is likely in the Avengers wave but Hasbro did not confirm it to me or at Comic-Con, so you will need to be a little more precise on where you saw that confirmed?

at SDCC, after they revealed him they said he would be part of the first Avengers wave. but nothing else is confirmed. BRB, Nightahawk and LL are strong possibilities but not confirmed yet.

Im gonna leave Hercules in the maybe category cause at San Diego when I asked them about it they made no such confirmation. Hercules was listed simply as a 2019 preview. Like I said, probably is gonna be in the Avengers, might even be a BAF, but gonna wait till I hear more from Hasbro to say 100%

Looks like Dogpool has a little peg on the back of the scooter seat to help him stay in place. I wonder where it plugs into?

Does anybody know how the marvel unlimited subscription figure works. I have a subscription and I didn’t know if that is sent automatically or if there’s something I have to do?  Thanks.

Never really bothered with the Black Panther movie figures but I would definitely get Klaw.

I really want to know when that Hercules is coming out. Such a vast improvement from the original Hasbro one.

So much in the works, and so much of it is awesome! I'm guessing the next Avengers wave will be "Avengers 4" focused, which is why we know so little about it. My guess is we'll see Herc, and maybe one or both of the Black Order members, Living Laser and/or Nighthawk, and the other spots filled with a few main characters from Avengers 4. 

Was anything mentioned about Jubilee having interchangeable heads and/or removable glasses?

Is the Ultron head included with Vision designed to fit on an existing Ultron figure? Will it fit on the MCU Ultron?

Not too happy about Walgreens going from FF to X-Men exclusives but ok. Hope to see a Dr. Doom and Super Skrull soon, now that we have the whole FF team.

I was also excited to hopefully see a 90s Storm, but Jubilee and Prof. X are good enough.

Ive not seen any info on the head fitting on any Ultron figure...yet.

 

Allow me to vent here.

I really wanted a classic Vision...and sadly this isn't it. I was hoping these pics are not the finished product but I think now that's a pipe dream. What's wrong with the figure? I would've preferred they went with the latest version's body mold, but this is fine. What's really disappointing, is that Vision's cape has a cord around the collar, and that's never been done in action figure format. Bowen busts, and even the latest bobble head, show the cord. And yes technically in his FIRST appearance in 1968, the cape is all one-piece ending just above the diamond chest emblem. However, in the very next issue, the cord/rope is there and its been his classic look ever since. Hasbro was able to produce Gladiator's cape with the cord (of course Vision doesn't have those large disc clasps on either side) so we know they COULD do his cloak correctly. 2nd, his briefs are not shorts....just looking at Cyclops or Wolverine etc we know they can paint those correctly and for some reason, they didn't. 3rd, they then really jacked up his belt. All they did was just line-draw over his ab section. Vision's belt is large, distinctive, and all they had to do was what they did with Yondu's  belt ( marvel universe) or even what theyre going to do with Night Thrasher. 4th, His boots/gloves, are merely painted on like the belt, and like the belt they look cheap and silly. Especially when we know the ability to do it right is there! His boots end in points at the knee...Hasbro has done way more complicated boots (Omega Red, Angela) so this shouldn't be so hard. Mattel does pointed boots on all their Batman figures so....

Ok, rant over. I may or may not buy this figure, just wish it was shown the same kind of attention to detail we saw for Mysterio or Rogue. Carry on, party people, and thanks!

dude that is probably the weirdest nitpick I ever read. but while I do understand where you are coming from, Classic vision has been drawn like this figure more often the with the cord.

My only beef with the vintage classic Vision is did they really have to add the Yellow to his upper thighs to give him a boxer shorts look? Gonna have to paint that over with Green or maybe do a swap with Hydra grunt  legs. I mean I know what they were going for but it came out not looking so good.

I am on the same boat as you. I am just hoping that maybe we can get a repack of the full Kingpin BAF like we did we Ares and Thanos.
