#SDCC2019 - Hasbro Marvel Legends Preview Night Tid-Bits

Recommended Posts

It was fairly quit on the Hasbro front for Marvel Legends last night for Preview Night. The biggest things of note was the news we brought you the other week about the MCU 2-Pack with Iron Spider and Iron Man Mark 50 turned out to be true.

The set which is being sold here at SDCC through the Entertainment Earth booth for $60 will be released as a Target store exclusive. Look for it to be released at Target as early as this week.

Hasbro while having nothing new out at their booth last night did have a diorama set up and one figure in that which caught people's eyes was one of a character called Overdrive. That figure Hasbro informed us was a simple custom using a repainted Star-Lord. That doesn't necessarily mean an Overdrive couldn't be coming, but the one in the diorama is not an actual figure being released. You can see the Overdrive figure below and we will be bringing you better looks at the diorama later this week.

Stay-tuned later this morning for the first real Hasbro Marvel Legends reveals which will come around 8am PT during a special media event breakfast Hasbro will be holding.

Rats, i dunno why but i assumed that Iron Spider set would be $50, not $60.  

Overdrive! I know some folks will be happy to complete the Superior Foes.. but he will surely pegwarm just like the rest of the Superior Foes (except maybe Shocker)

Nice diorama, altho the glare/reflections make it tougher to see what's going on (not faulting the photographer) - looks pretty mind-blowing nonetheless!

I was assuming $40-50 for the iron two pack.  Pretty pricey for figures that have already been released and a lot of us have especially for just a couple of add ons. Yikes!

So is the Hulk/FA Wolverine set now being sold at Target, too?  Just a bit confused by the pic.

Oh wow!!!! Is that an official Overdrive I see or just one of Hasbro’s “customs” again? 

Hasbro said it was one of their customs...

God, anybody remember the infamous G.I. Joe "Custom Cabinet" Hasbro drug around to the Cons toward the end of the G.I. Joe line? That took big shiney brass ones. "Hey, thanks for supporting our line. Here's a showcase of super-cool figures most of which will never see release!"

I just hope it never falls that low for Marvel Legends.

I rather want the Iron 2-pack, but agree VERY much that the add ins for figures I previously purchased are not that valuable to me. Gonna have to camp out on it and see if the price gets reduced.

There were several Ultron figures in there that I hadn't seen before.  They looked pretty different from previous Ultron figures, so I wasn't quite sure if they were customs...well, I guess they must have been, since there was no Ultron reveal in the panel today.

    • King & Queen: Black Bolt / Medusa - these two need to be redone Evolution: Mar-Vell / Captain Marvel - first appearance Mar-Vell in green and white Kree warrior outfit; other is red and blue Nega-bands costume with interchangeable head for white/blonde hair Enemies: Doctor Strange / Baron Mordo Heroes for Hire: Power Man / Iron Fist - classic versions of Luke Cage and Danny Rand  Nightwing Restorations: Misty Knight / Colleen Wing  West Coast Avengers: Tigra / Wonder Man - red jacket and sunglasses version of Simon Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: male / female - two bodies in tactical blue and gray uniforms, interchangeable heads to create Jimmy Woo, Jasper Sitwell, Clay Quartermain, Phil Coulson (male), and Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, Maria Hill, Sharon Carter, Melinda May (female)   There are so, so, soooo many more I could come up with. I also really like the idea of army builder packs for the Skrulls, the Kree, the Mindless Ones, the Leader's Humanoids, Hydra, A.I.M., etc.
    • I love that the Fantastic Four are getting their own wave(s), but I prefer classic looks to modern. Since the Walgreen's exclusive gave us the retro/classic look for Reed and Sue, I'd like to see the other iconic design, the blue and white costumes designed by John Byrne, made famous in the '80s and '90s and in the unreleased Roger Corman movie.   Wave 2 Mister Fantastic - with bendy wire stretchable torso; arms and legs would be good, too, but torso is a must She-Hulk - Fantastic Four costume Mole Man - 3 1/2 inches tall, comes with 2 moloid creatures the size of a Marvel Universe figure Super-Skrull The Wizard Paste-Pot Pete BAF - Annihilus Wave 3 Invisible Woman - in costume, translucent shield effect like the new toy has Human Torch - Johnny Storm in costume, attachable flame effects Namor - reissue with cape and crown, alternate head with more comic-accurate hair and eyebrows Skrull Scientist Mad Thinker Invisible Woman - translucent BAF - Awesome Android Wave 4 Human Torch - flamed on, red body, black lines, yellowish flame effects Crystal - classic yellow Inhumans look Triton -  Diablo Puppet Master Blastaar BAF - Dragon Man Wave 5 Thing - with blue pants Gorgon Triton Titania Firelord Impossible Man BAF - Ronan the Accuser  
    • TF is not one franchise it is at least four franchises at the moment.  Also no that they are doing the main members there is no need to release them again in the next wave. They should go back to the old He-Man idea and release main characters once a year, not every wave or in some cases two in every wave
    • True, but I could argue that Transformers is ONE franchise, and you may get 4 or 5 more waves throughout a given year. FF is only one of MANY franchises under the Marvel banner, every one of which must be serviced. There's no guarantee there will be another FF wave anytime soon, so you have to get your big guns up there right off. That's probably why, after waiting so long, Hasbro is suddenly hitting us with 90s X-Men left and right. Lord knows when we'll get another X-Wave.
