Hasbro Marvel Legends 80th Anniversary Comic Book Covers Coming To SDCC

Recommended Posts

Hasbro has created some amazing comic book cover images featuring a variety of figures from the new Marvel Legends 80th Anniversary line, including characters such as Iron Man, Thor, Storm, Colossus, and more.

During San Diego Comic-Con later this week, the covers that feature the Marvel Legends X-Men figures will be made available for free for guests during two poster giveaway sessions at the Hasbro Booth (#3213)! Giveaway sessions will take place Friday at 10:30am and Saturday at 4:30pm. During each session two of the four posters will be distributed. Fans can swing by the booth during these times to collect all four to create one large X-Men poster.

In addition, the Marvel Legends 80th Anniversary figures will be available for pre-order on Thursday, 7/18.

This is a pretty cool homage to the source material. I love seeing that xmen #1 recreated with all the characters in it. I was going to do a remake of the cover when I got all the figs but this beats me to it! love it!

The Thor cover is my favorite but they are all great! 

I follow a bunch of folks who do cover re-creations like this (one of them had done the very same thor cover awhile back!)  I kinda wish hasbro had held some sort of contest with the winner's pic getting chosen for a poster, that would've been neat even tho i would have no chance of winning myself lol

This reminds me of the short stop motion clips Marvel HQ would make with Marvel Legends back in the days... I don't know if anyone remembers those.

No one is going to say nothing about!!! Hello jean grey!!!!??

Hello, Jean Grey! There.

These cover realisations are cool and X-Men #1 is the real standout. But:

1. Jean Grey needs more than new wrist bands and a lightly tweaked head. If this really is the  100% official/approved new Marvel Legends Jean Grey...I'll be very disappointed. But, this may be a WIP, a custom for display or whatever, so it could get better. 

2. I'm hoping for more than the three X-based Marvel Legends (Wolverine, Colossus, Juggernaut) in the 80th Anniversary line. Won't list who I think they should do, but the line is way too heavily-stacked towards Avengers - both comic & MCU iterations). Time & time again, MCU double or triple packs (Winter Soldier/Falcon, Vision/Scarlet Witch, Civil War CA, IM & Spider-Man for instance, Iron Man & War Machine) have tanked, and 'special' MCU lines (10th Anniversary) were pretty bad. I've never seen the likes of Ultron, Red Skull, Thor & Sif, Stark & Iron Man not on heavy discount.  Generally, they just don't sell as well as comics-based singles & multi-packs.

Which may be a problem: as of now, we have an MCU Captain America & Peggy Carter; a wartime MCU Cap with bike & a Classic comic-based Cap. MCU is also represented by Korg/Grandmaster (Thor: Ragnarok), Hela & Skurge (Thor: Ragnarok) and Luis & Ghost (Antman & the Wasp). Yeah...little but overweighted. Can't help but think demand for most of the above will be limited.

If Hasbro is celebrating 80 years of Marvel, how is it that 90% of what's been revealed takes us back just 11 years and covers only MCU? 

Marvel's rich and unmatched tapestry of  COMIC characters and teams is barely grazed. Could Hasbro not explore: Punisher #1; Alpha Flight #1, Inhumans (Marvel Knights, #1), Earth X #1, Fantastic Four #1, Secret Wars & Secret Wars (2015, both #1), Thunderbolts #1, Dark Avengers #1?

I'm sure there's more from Hasbro though: more reveals & teasers & jolly good stuff.

That X-Men #1 combined image is my new desktop wallpaper.

This is something Hasbro should do more often for promo images for new Marvel Legends figures.

    • Right. I don't remember anyone having a problem with Bucky replacing Cap (don't get me started on how many Captain America's there were before the ridiculous Sam controversy- even the Red Skull bodysnatched Cap for a time), or the blonde Black Widow, the Crimson Dynamo, Union Jack, Red Hulks, need I go on. There's nothing in this announcement that says Jack Russell terrier is being wiped out in favor of this new guy. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if they end up having both werewolves cross paths.
    • Looking at that Crossbones figure, I think the head is sitting way too high on the neck peg. Once I get it, I'll just Dremel the hole in the head a bit deeper & that should fix the Giraffe issue. These are due to hit the pegs sometime in March?

    • When MARVELS SNAPSHOTS begins in March, fans will get to see Marvel's greatest characters from the Golden Age to today, in new legendary tales told through the eyes of ordinary people! As curator of this landmark series, Kurt Busiek has handpicked the creative teams for each standalone, double-sized issue and he’s put together an amazing assemblage of talent to tackle April’s issues focusing on Captain America and the X-Men. First up, Eisner nominated writer Mark Russell will revisit Jack Kirby’s classic Madbomb storyline from his 1970s run on CAPTAIN AMERICA. “Some people, when they call, you gotta pick up the phone. And Kurt Busiek is one of those people,” says Russell. “I was pretty instantly sold on the project once he started describing it to me— stories about the human cost of these famous conflicts in the Marvel Universe. I truly enjoyed working on this with him.” Known for his work on books like Second Coming and Wonder Twins, Russell says MARVELS SNAPSHOT: CAPTAIN AMERICA will focus on “the Madbomb's impact in the South Bronx, a community which had already been effectively abandoned by the rest of the nation, that community's struggle for survival, and of the search for heroes of its own.” He will be joined by acclaimed artist Ramón Pérez(ALL-NEW HAWKEYE). Next, in X-MEN: MARVELS SNAPSHOT, readers will see the rise of super heroes from the eyes of a young orphan named Scott Summers, the boy who would grow up to be Cyclops. The future X-Men leader couldn’t be in safer hands. Jay Edition, the co-host of the popular X-Men podcast, Jay and Miles X-Plain the X-Men, makes his Marvel Comics debut with a tale about one of his favorite characters. “This is a story that's pretty personal to me—because I'm me, and it's a Cyclops story; but even more because it's about the ways that superheroes and the stories around them can become lifelines. If I'm going to be really sappy about it (which I absolutely am), I get to give one of my favorite heroes the same kind of touchstone he's been to me over the years,” says Edidin. “I'd say it's a dream come true, but given that I'm the kind of uptight overachiever who overidentifies with Scott Summers in the first place, maybe also a bit of an anxiety dream come true. That said, it's been a blast to get to sit down and play in a sandbox I've spent years cataloguing and analyzing and explaining." Teaming up with Edidin will be artist Tom Reilly, a rising star artist known for his recent work on Immortal Hulk. Don’t miss this grand celebration of Marvel’s legacy that’s sure to be an instant favorite for True Believers old and new.
