Haslab - Marvel Legends Possibilities

Recommended Posts

So far, the Haslab has sucessfully produced the massive Star Wars 3.75” Jabba’s Sail Barge, and are in the process of seeking backers for their Insanely huge Unicron from Transformers, as well as the *ahem* life sized Cookie Monster.

The question I pose to y’all is, what do you see as actual possibilities for a Marvel Haslab product?  Would it be a role play item, or a Legends scaled vehicle or character?

galactus or fin fang foom! >:D

Galactus would be neat, but I feel like Hasbro would sooner repack the Marvel Universe Figure like they did with the Sentinel

My first choice would be Galactus in the area of 20 inches tall, plus part of his energy conversion machine or some crazy Kirby tech that looks like it.

Beyond that, I'm sure a ton of X-Men collectors would like a SR-70 Blackbird. Along the same lines, an MCU Avengers Quinjet.

I’m trying to wrap my head around how that could function as a toy. It’s tough but I’m digging it

Here would be my top 5 for haslab

1. Galactus (make him real big)

2. X-jet (classic blue one and big enough to fit at least 6 marvel legends)

3. Ego

4. Giant-man mcu (get actual close to his size)

5. The raft prison cells, can have a whole thing with broken cells and would go great for diorama displays

I've made jokes, but at the end of the day, the HasLab concept is utterly ridiculous. Seriously, they produced a 500 + dollar sail barge you literally can only buy if you're in ONE specific geographic location (AND stupid enough to pay 500 dollars for a toy).

Now, I won't go into the bus-load of issues I, and many others, have with the whole HasLab concept, but I will give this little reminder:

Every Marvel Legends character, vehicle, playset, etc. made in the 'Lab will be one that 99.9 % of us will not be able to get.

It's a 4-foot-long toy. It's gonna be expensive. Is it a luxury item? Sure. All toys are, but it makes people happy. It's disappointing to see people being shamed for being excited about that on a toy collecting message board.

LOL, so on the one hand is too ridiculously expensive to buy, but OTOH you're upset that its not available internationally? Unless i'm misunderstanding.. does one have to go pick it up in person or something? 

Its not my cup of tea, but people spend lots of money on hot toys, etc so in that context $500 for a huge barge doesn't seem that far-fetched.  Plenty of people would argue that WE'RE stupid for regularly dropping $20 on marvel legends, what with them being toys and all. seems like a slippery slope to argue that someone is stupid for paying x amount for a toy. Remove the rafter from our own eye, and all that.

WIth all of that said, i'm personally not really in the market for anything huge that would require HasLab. I do think they should re-release the marvel universe Galactus and Frost Giant, maybe look to making a few other big figures like that such as a Celestial or Giant-man.

3. Ego

If Ego were to scale, he'd have to be 347 miles wide. That's probably a stretch, even for Haslab. 🙂

It would be amazing to get an X-Mansion or Avengers Tower

but yes lets be honest none of us can afford this HasLab stuff, if it's anything like the Sail Barge (my buddy here payed 1000 dollars for his Sail Barge!)

 

i'd settle for a nice easy simple diorama for my legends nothing fancy and it doesn't have to be haslab, oh actually i'd just settle for Hasbro making some damn stands for legends

Okay, I reread my post, and in total fairness, part of it does come off a little confrontational or shamey. Totally not my intention. If anybody took offence, I am sorry.

Basically, all I'm saying is if Hasbro does do a Galactus, Ego, Helicarrier or whatever; I'd much rather it be done for retail or at least in some fashion that makes it accessible to everyone. If that means smaller, less elaborate sets, awesome.

That's definitely fair. I'd be on board for a big, fancy set if I could make the finances work, but I certainly wouldn't want to see it become a regular part of the line.

Okay, HasLab is all about the stuff that would never "cost out," massive ships like the Sail-barge and Big-Boy characters like Unicron; but does it have to be BIG . . . or ONE thing?

How about an entire wave, but a wave totally free of any retailer or financial restrictions. I'm thinking something like that DCUC Legion of Superheroes set Mattel did back in the day.

Just a thought.

My issue is that I don't have the room for something that massive.  My entire office is plastered with wall to wall shelves with Marvel Legends and Black Series figures.  A few years ago I was in Toys R Us and they had that huge Tie-Fighter for $25 and I passed.  My wife is pretty laid back about all the stuff I get, but she would be pissed if I spent $500 on a toy and there is no way I could easily justify that kind of money on one item.  I would be open to vehicles like a Snow Speeder or Blackbird, but no way on a huge Daily Bugle or X-Men mansion.

    • In this segment called Marvelous Photo Of The Day, we spotlight awesome Toy Photography from some of the hottest photographers on the Internet today. For today we are spotlighting Photographer Aliska and her photo of the Marvel One:12 Collective Daredevil figure titled "Beat To Hell". You can purchase One:12 Collective figures from our sponsor Megalopolis.Toys.   "Beat To Hell" By Aliska Be sure to give Aliska a follow on Instagram and let her know what you think of their work in the comments below.
    • Believe it or not, they did release a Satana back in the 2013 SDCC Exclusive Thunderbolts boxed set.  It's not the classic look of course, but was pretty far from toned down for Hasbro.
    • That's what I'm holding out hope for. Too true, sad, but true.
    • I have to say the Walgreen's Invisible Woman is my favorite for three reasons: 1) she was my very first Marvel Legends figure, my gateway into collecting this brand; 2) Sue is my favorite female Marvel superhero; and 3) it's a good-looking figure with cool interchangeable hands, an attractive body and head sculpt--and H.E.R.B.I.E.! Other female Marvel Legends I really like are: Spider-Gwen Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew, original costume) Black Widow (vintage wave) The Enchantress Female characters that I want Hasbro to release are: Captain Marvel II/Photon/Spectrum (classic Monica Rambeau) She-Hulk (either from the Savage or Sensational She-Hulk comics, not the new version) Magik (classic New Mutants costume with the eldritch armored arm and a reasonable-sized sword) Gamora (original appearance, green fishnet-looking costume) Satana, the Devil's Daughter (I doubt this will happen) Colleen Wing (my Misty Knight figure needs her partner) Clea (Doctor Strange's paramour) Tigra Princess Python (from the Circus of Crime, complete with giant bendy-wire snake that can wrap around her) Rogue (original green costume, hood, short hair) The Wasp is another one of my favorite Marvel women, and I have both of her comic figures, but I really would like to see another based on one of her more iconic costumes from either the '70s or '80s.
    • Carol Danvers Ms Marvel hands down. She looks like how a real woman looks (I know, I collect toys, how would I know what a real woman should look like). Her proportions are perfect to me. She is one character that Hasbro and even Toybiz seems to just knock out of the park. Loved the Toybiz’s version and the Hasbro one upped that version as well. A few others are Mockingbird (great sculpt and costume), Photon (or was she Pulsar? Beautiful face) MCU Wasp was a pleasant surprise, and i thought the Riders Black Widow was a welcome minor change to her usual offering
