The Mexico Unboxing Toy Convention Is This Weekend And More Marvel Legends Reveals Should Be On Tap

Recommended Posts

I been waiting for this figure for so long if I get a chance I will buy it, hate to take a chance on not being able to get another one and it might come in a two pack or something. Maybe I can get a Gi made for the figure.

Yeah we know all the figures in the Avengers wave and since the only thing else they seemed to have brought from SDCC is the Spider-Man figures it would make sense they are going to reveal more from that wave tomorrow. I am curious to see what the BAF for that is going to be??? I hope we see some more original New Warrior figures like perhaps Firestar.

I would imagine that Shang Chi will be getting at least 1 movie wave so Hasbro should make a classic comic Gi wearing Shang in that wave to go along with the shirtless version we're getting in the Spidey wave. Hopefully he also comes with forearm bracers to deflect shuriken's & bladed weapons.

I m really excited for the old man Vulture, but that pose makes the wings look weird. Not as nice looking as how Saurons wings were like.

Yes! I have been waiting so patiently for Hasbro to make the New Warriors. Just give me the characters and costumes from the first twenty-five issues. 

I'd love to see Marvel Boy with the full masked head plus a masked head with his hair exposed. We'll need Nova's red outfit from issue #1 and his blue/yellow costume. Speedball should come with some bubble effects too.

I would bet dollars to donuts you just nailed that one. Hopefully an new Tarantula gets the call. I know he's not exactly Mexican, but he's definitely South American. You wanna really blow my mind, how 'bout a Masacre figure?

Or speaking of South America; Sunspot 🙂

I'm going to make a prediction that we will be getting a character from X-Men 2099 revealed this weekend. My reasoning is Marvel recently added X-Men 2099 #1 to their free Marvel Comics app, and while they add new books all the time, my instincts tell me this addition is important. 

Last year when they revealed Nighthawk, issue #1 of the 1998 Nighthawk mini series was released on the marvel Comics app, and in my opinion X-Men 2099 is too random an issue to release without reason.

We'll find out tomorrow for sure though. Can't wait!

I think there's actually CCXP con in Brazil that Hasbro is supposed to be attending. I think if Sunspot is gonna make an appearance it'll probably be there. So between the Unboxing Con and the CCXP we have a good chance of getting either Rictor or Sunspot or (better yet) both, which would be music to the ears of my BFF @Benn. I'll be crossing my fingers as well.

If it is a Spider-man wave reveal, fingers crossed for the Looter.

I believe who ever put that figure in the display case attached the wings incorrectly

"Bro-Thor?" Is that what we're calling it now?

Nah, It's the Big Thorbowski. I mean its painfully obvious what the hack writers had on their tiny, uninspired little minds when they pooped this steaming piece of rancid turkey.

Frankly Id be very surprised if they did a figure of "new" Falcon, especially since they have so many others who are far better well known (and more popular). Not to mention, they haven't even done original Falcon yet. And, if we're thinking its going to be a Mexican hero, hope they don't use Arana/Spider-Girl as she's already been done.

Oh, i dunno, releasing a modern Falcon 1st then a classic Falcon later seems right out of Hasbro's playbook.  A lotta folks who might not be interested in modern Falcon might pick him up as a stand-in for Sam, altho the costumes are fairly different. Plus you know Hasbro's gonna wanna make as much use of those Vulture wings as possible. 

All that said, couple of Spidey reveals would be nice.

Between them constantly assembling some figures wrong, putting them in these awkward poses, displaying them with the wrong accessories and even pre-maturely displaying figures sometimes you gotta wonder who they have putting these figures in the display cases. Obviously not true fans. I'm thinking some intern or new hire straight outta school who's just doing his time in the ditches till he can land another gig.

Looking at some pics of the mansion display, we see some customs of what looks like 6-inch Sentinels. Could Hasbro be planning on doing some Prime Sentinels in the near future?

I'm thinking some poor shlep who doesn't get paid near enough for doing a thankless job where there's ALWAYS gonna be somebody telling you why what your doing is wrong.

Try working the Plan-o team at Target a couple weeks, you'll gain a new respect for these guys.

I hope not. I want 12-16' scaled DOFP classic John Byrne Sentinels. Much more bad  ass & intimidating! I'd get 6-9 of these & have 3 triads of Hunter/killer Sentinels.

Exactly, for all the detail that went in on the sculpt and paint, you’d think the wings would take precedent as an important aspect of the character.

So looks like there has been a change in schedule and they switched the Transformers and Marvel panels. TF will now be at 3pm ET and Marvel will now be at 4pm ET. Star Wars kicks things off at 2pm ET still.

I think they just misplaced the wings rear and front parts location as they are just attachable to the arm ... the person should be fired though LOL

    • 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.
