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

Recommended Posts

I love this wave! The only 2 I’m not super stoked about are the Game Spideys but they’re still cool. ’d be thrilled if Frog Man was the BAF like others have wished !

umm..... They made an emphasis that Shang-Chi will come with loads of hands. In several interviews and at the panel. 

No need for teenage sarcasm friend, I didn't see the panel. But my, that is most good news. Shang-Chi is back on the list!!

Can't wait to get the Vulture. Literally been waiting for this one since the toybiz was always too expensive.

No idea who or what any of these characters are, but that's all good. I'm happy for the fans who dig them, and happy to give my wallet a break so's I can catch up on Transformers Siege, lol. Any how, it's a pity that Shang-Chi looks to be coming with no extra hands, which means no sale. I'm happy enough to get the Vulture though! 

Shang-Chi is supposed to come with a bunch of kung-fu hands (i imagine its like the white costume Iron Fist from a few years back) and also nun-chuks, so he's not as bare-bones as the promo pics make him seem

Awesome! Shang, Vulture & Rabbit are musts for me. The Spidey variants are neat; especially the ock one! But will prooobably pass on those. I wanna see the baf now!

Any truth to the rumor that Hasbro is doing the new Marvel Legends Batman figure, since DC just sold all Batman licenses to Marvel?   OK....JUST KIDDING.... but yeah would be interesting to see Mexican based characters displayed. Maybe new Falcon ( Joaquin Torres ) will make a showing...raised in Arizona, but technically from Mexico if I recall....

Holy crap,  I was just kidding about the Batman thing, and then they throw in a completely unexpected figure- White Rabbit- who was also a Batman villain ( I think Marvel's version came out 15-20 years earlier though!) and who saw THAT coming. Well....I barely remember this rather silly useless character, but I cant complain....after all,  I've been ragging on that they should use more obscure characters before they burn out on Wolverine/Iron Man/Deadpool/ Spider-Man variants. Anyone know what the BAF is for this wave?

Grizzly could be the baf, along with White Rabbit, he’s one of those weirder spidey villains and will be easier to do using Sasquatch\Wendigo or even Beast body parts.

Both figures look great. I really wish Ock came with some possible tentacles instead of reusing the Doc Ock ones. Really wish the revealed the BAF just to complete the wave. Now we need Gibbon, Grizzly and the Bombastic Bagman (though Shang-Chi's body would work, if we had a Bagman head)

The tentacles are not the same as Dock Ock, they dont seem to have the bendy wires either though, but they are definetely diferent, I saw them myself, they are a lot thinner, just a tad thicker than Omega Red's tentalces, but not my much (theyll most likely have the same amount of articulation than dock ock's (they might rotate where they attach to the backpack, and it seems like the clamps will have a similar balljoint where you'll be able to rotate them and lightly swivel them) this is what I could tell from behind the glass of the case but again im just assuming from what I saw

For me, this is already a weak enough wave that I could pass.  Maybe 1 or 2 figures to interest me....but a Grizzly BAF is not a selling point. On the other hand, if theyre scraping the bottom of the barrel with White Rabbit, why not this clown or even Gibbon....as you point out, they already have a good building block set up.

I assume Arcade would be part of an X-men wave and i would guess he is lower on the priority list of x-villains compared to others Hasbro wants to make.  Hasbro has done versions of a lot of the more prominent spidey villains at this point so i think they are trying to balance the remaining ones (like classic vulture) with other more obscure ones that have nevertheless been on fan wish lists (White Rabbit).

They probably also assume they can sell more of the DP white suit sets in the meantime as customizers may attempt to use that body to make their own Arcade before hasbro makes an official version. Win-win for Hasbro!

I'm starting to like this wave more and more, Shang Chi is my top want(finally!), followed by Vulture. I like the looks of the Spidey Variants some cool designs there. White Rabbit is the kind of obscure, silly thing that I like to get in Marvel Legends even if I haven't read that many stories with the character. The moment I saw the first image of Superior Octopus I know he would make a cool looking figure and here we are, he's going with my Hydra figures. I'm curious as to who the BAF will be but so far this wave is not half bad for me.

C'mon, what kinda pose is that. Did they even try! He looks like he has no left arm and that there's nothing in the suit there.

Stormbreaker and Dragonfang were bent AF... and now you complain about the lame posing? They're clearly not even trying.  I wish they'd pay ME to set up the display...

I didn't even bother with the bent stuff since people have already touched on that before I got here. But yeah that's a much bigger issue than the posing.

I had hoped it was just from a weird framed photo, but I was there and Dragonfang in particular was AWFUL. None of the figures were posed to impress. It was underwhelming to say the least...

    • My first pick would be  Quicksilver/Ultron Drone.  Army building for the drones, multiple Pietros to show his super speed. Warriors Three. With either a headswap for Fandral, or just the second one.  Cosmo/Howard the Duck Whiplash/Justin Hammer. Either the armored or racetrack version, I just want a Hammer to do a stopmotion Stark Expo dance. General Ross/Abomination. I feel like there's not enough love for this. Malekith/Kurse Alexander Pierce/Agent Sitwell Kaecilius/Mindless one Zealot multiple headswaps+magic effects Ancient One/Wong Stakar/Aleta/Martinex/Charly-27/Mainframe/Krugar Miek/Fenris (maybe not HUGE, but, you know... a big wolf) Sonny Burch/Uzman/Dave/Kurt Chitauri/Sakaaran/Outrider Male Starforce (Yon-Rogg, Att-Las, Bron-Char alt heads)/Skrull (alt heads)
    • Yep can't forget Bag Man! 😄  Hard to decide what Inhuman I would want to see in the wave, but will keep my fingers crossed in hopes that we'll get a set of em like we are with Alpha Flight.
    • The thing about random is that they already have the arm(s) for him thanks to a BAF not alot of people completed. The Titus Baf.
    • Random would be fun. Nice list. Lists are great for imagination. I'm getting more excited about seeing some Generation X figures. That series was fun early on. I liked the uniforms. I would hope Hasbro could include some accessories to demonstrate their powers. Maybe some extra hands or limbs for Husk. I wish they would do flight stands for someone like M. Would Skin be cool without normal and stretched out hands? Would Mondo have to be a BAF? I remember the 90's toy being somewhat large. What would be the uniform for your ideal New Mutants figures? They had some really dated appearances around Inferno. Were those characters around the entire time?
    • Can't believe I forgot Bag-Man, probably because I would see the Bombastic Bagman as a Spider-Man variant
