Are There Any Other Far From Home Figures We Might Get?

Recommended Posts

In the Far From Home wave we're getting Spider Man in his red and black suit, Spider Man's Stealth Suit, Mysterio, and Molten Man. Do you think/want Hasbro to release any other figures from the movie like Ned or Chameleon, if he shows up? Or Hydro Man or any of the other elemental? I only collect MCU figures so I'm always happy to get more characters no matter how small their role is.

Honestly maybe but it won't be part of a wave and part of some exclusive box set.

Yeah I'd assume it would be a 2 pack.

Yeah, as Tarot said, if any additional Far From Home figures are released (and tbh it’s likely) they will probably come in box sets or something. Unless I’m remembering wrong, most stand alone character MCU films only get one wave per film.

I just remembered that Hasbro did release that surprise second wave of Black Panther figures. I mostly forget that wave exists because it was a complete pass by me. I actually bought Klaw and returned it a week later.

Shame that wave was a bit of a rush job

The Black Panther second wave was largely in response to the massive response Black Panther got at the Box Office.  I have no doubt Far From Home is going to be plenty successful, but I don't think it's going to be OMG Successful compared to other Marvel films. 

So no, I don't think we'll get another full wave.  As others have noted, maybe some two/multi-packs, but another wave is unlikely.

THEN AGAIN....

We're about to enter a bit of a "downtime" for Marvel movie releases.  There's supposedly an "unnamed Marvel Movie" for May 2020, which we'll probably find out about at SDCC (either Black Widow or Shang-Chi, from my understanding, outside chance of Eternals but that's probably late 2020 or Early 2021).  But that means early next year there's nada in the slot that Black Panther and Captain Marvel previously released in, nor is there anything in the "late in the year" slot this year that Dr. Strange or Thor: Ragnarok released in.  It's doubtful Hasbro's going to pause the firehose of product they've been blasting at us, so that does leave the door open for additional waves, though I suspect the most likely option is that The Avengers are going to become an "evergreen" line like Spider-Man and X-Men.

That, and the 80th product also seems timed to fill that gap to a large extent.

hopefully that means the 80th figures keep coming to fill the gap

I dunno.  I think March or so of next year (when product for the next movie hits) will be here before we know it.  We're getting flooded with so much product this year that I think it's going to speed right on by.

 

You're not wrong about the post-Endgame phase, though.  I've heard a lot of people speaking sentiments that they kinda feel like they're "done" with Marvel.  I'm by no means counting them out, but I think they may not have another "ultra-mega hit" until Black Panther 2 or Guardians 3, and beyond that until the X-Men and maybe Fantastic Four get remade.  Though the stink on Dark Phoenix may have set back the X-Men reboot by another couple years.

I would highly doubt a second wave, but I'd places bets we will see a multi-pack or 2, Hasbro can't stop stuffing out Spider-Man oriented Multi-packs

I'm pretty sure there will be a two pack featuring two of the following :
-
a repaint Spider-man with an unmasked face
- Mysterio with an unmasked face
- Happy Hogan
- Ned
- Nick Fury

I really hope we don't see a Happy Hogan and or a Ned, I'm pretty tired already of seeing Hasbro poop out stupid civilian characters from the MCU at such a speed-run rate this few years, maybe it's just me but I never would want to look at a shelf with Everett Ross and Luis in it, and thats just the start , people are that into being so "complete" they want even a figure that is so un-fun it's Actor in a business suit, even things like Captain Marvel wave young Nick fury just erk me (even though I know it was an integral character in movie), Never as a collector at any ages do I want such boring cop-out pieces , but that's me , I just think we could easily fill these "cop-out" slots with actually cool figs, but I apologize I am not knocking those who desire these figs, I just really don't like them

That is just a prediction.
I'm also looking for more interesting characters with suits, power and weapons/accessories.
I forgot about Maria Hill, she could get a new mold/figure.

I suspect any other Far From Home figures will be in either some sort of Multipack, a Marvel 80th Anniversary Release style deal, and/or as Store and Online Exclusives(Regardless if it's a single or Multipack).

If there are more Far From Home figures they will probably be in a multipack. Unless there are a lot of new characters we haven't seen yet, maybe after the movie comes out we will get  abetter idea.

Yeah, I think the multiipack seems most likely, too.  But that's an If.  I genuinely don't think they've kept too many characters a secret in the promotion of this movie.

With how poorly received that Molten Man BaF has been (I too think it looks awful, like it belongs in the basic line), I very seriously doubt that Hasbro will release any further BaFs or standard figures based on the remaining MCU iterations of the elemental villains. I mean, unless they manage some sort of repaint or something. With that said, I don’t feel that there are enough characters remaining from that film to fill a second wave. Now, I wouldn’t be too surprised if additional Sony/MCU Spider-Man characters from the first two films are released in later waves, but likely just one or two here and there. Again, I reiterate that any additional FFH releases are very likely, if at all, going to be released via fan channel multi-packs. That’s how Hasbro tends to squeeze dollars out of their afterthoughts.

about the only good side of molten man I can see is it being a possible base for a clay face custom

It might be the first universally disliked BaF.

Hey! If anyone reading this likes the FFH Molten Man BaF, please sound off. I’m actually curious.

I don't hate it, I think it's kind of creative and shows Hasbro is willing to take risks, which is kind of cool.  I also won't say it's my favorite BAF either, there's a lot of problems in the execution. It's definitely one of my least favorites, but it has company in the form of that original MCU Ultron, Titus, Space Knight Venom, and Arnim Zola. I just have a hard time hating it, when Hasbro took a real leap putting this one out there, and in my eyes, the BAF is a bonus figure.

The rest of the wave is strong enough that I don't regret purchasing any of them, can't say the same for the Endgame Wave or Kingpin Wave, and I skipped Black Panther and Captain Marvel's Waves, speaking of which, that Kree Sentry is a pretty universally hated BAF, so this isn't Hasbro's first misstep.

I'm curious about it, I don't dislike it yet. I want to get it, but am only REALLY interested in the MCU figures from the wave. With all that's coming out, I might have to pass on it and just buy Mysterio and have to skip it. 

I am more interested in this than Caliban and Wendigo, for example, but that's just because I collect MCU mainly.

    • Not sure it has been posted but check Rite-Aid stores. Legends are beginning to show up there now since Walgreens bought most of the company.  Have seen finds posted on a few Legends groups
    • I think you are overestimating how often characters change outfit. The cases of Captain America and Thor are particular since they've had a past couple of hectic years with several temporary changes which I would consider an exception and not the norm. In the case of Spider-Man, he has only had one major change in the past five years; of using the Spider-Armor between 2015 and 2017. It's also worth pointing out that this was Spider-Man's only main costume change in the modern era. Also, the Spider-Armor got a figure in 2017, in the MJ Watson 2-pack. Even then, Hasbro has delivered modern versions of characters. But my issue is how slow they are at doing so. I think Hasbro should be able to keep up if they became as involved with the comic division as they are with the movie side. Using modern outfit changes as an example, Spider-Man used the Spider-Armor between 2015 and 2017, and it only got a figure in 2017. Iron Man's Bleeding Edge Armor was 2010-2012, w/figure in 2013. His Marvel NOW! Armor was 2012-2015, w/figure in 2015. His Model-Prime Armor was 2015-2016, w/figure in 2018. Captain America's Marvel NOW! uniform lasted from 2012 to 2014, w/figure in 2014. Thor's Marvel NOW! suit was 2012-2014, w/figure in 2015. His first Unworthy outfit was 2014-2017, w/figure in 2017. Something similar has happened with other topical characters, like Jane Fosthor who lasted 2014-2018, w/figure in 2017. FalCap was 2014-2017, w/figure in 2016. Ms. Marvel debuted in 2014 and got a figure in 2016. Miles Morales in 2011 and we only got a proper figure in 2016 (not counting the bad 2012 attempt). All of the modern outfits I mentioned had a pretty long life span of a couple of years, but Hasbro only made a figure for them when they were about to be ditched or were already ditched. In contrast, Hasbro works very tightly with Marvel Studios, allowing them to plan figures well in advance and release them either shortly before or shortly after a movie comes out. Even a delayed figure like the Iron Man MK 85 is coming out on the same year it debuted. For movie figures, 7 months is an eternity, but I'd be beyond shocked if Hasbro managed to pull that off for a comic look. I need to go on a tangent and speak a little bit about the Iron Man Marvel NOW! armor and how odd I find it because the armor debuted in 2012, and Hasbro already had a comic-accurate 3D model of it as eary as 2013 which they used for the Avengers Assemble 3.75" line. However, it only got a Marvel Legends in 2015, which lazily used a repainted MCU MK IV mold (which was inaccurate for the armor it was meant to portray). I think this could be an indicative that Hasbro can have the resources to release topical figures much earlier than they do.
    • It looks really cool but I still think Hasbro will release a MK 85 with the back piece or a battle damaged one with a bloody RDJ head and a snapping hand.
    • I think this is one of the better head sculpts Hasbro's done with the new face printing tech.
    • Looks awesome!! So much better than the wave 2 War Machine figure. I just wish that instead of it coming with 2 Thor heads, it would come with an unmasked Rodey head and a Thor head with removable shades.
