Spider-Man Marvel Legends

Recommended Posts

My question is, if Sony and Disney don't come to an agreement, will they stop making movie Spider-Man Marvel Legends? We never got any movie Venom figures and the Into the Spider-Verse figures weren't movie accurate. I think chances are they won't make any more if they split.

I’m not sure but my guess is that it would be more like spiderverse and venom in that hasbro makes comic versions of characters appearing in the movies rather than doing mcu/Sonyverse versions

So we'll get comic characters we probably already have or may eventually get anyway. That would be a shame.

don't forget we got electro and the Garfield spidey a few years ago

again that was before the whole push from Disney not to do any figure not from the MCU. The only reason we got the Spider-verse 2-pack was because they were cool with Sony.

The Disney push not to do non-MCU movie merchandise only affected the Fox properties. Hasbro produced an entire line of toys for Into the Spider-Verse, and the Webb films also had their fair share of merchandise.

This is because in 2011, Sony sold all of the Spider-Man merchandise rights they held back to Marvel. Marvel and its licensees can pump as much merchandise of Spider-Man movies as they want because it's in their control.

The possible fallout from the Sony deal isn't going to affect Spider-Man Marvel legends figures apart from the lack of new Sony movie and game figures

It occurs to me that while i have a lot of mcu figs i don't actually have any mcu spidey figures (including villains) so i guess hasbro not making more wouldn't bother me all that much, personally.  I had an IW wave Iron Spider at one point but my friend's kids wanted one so i gave it to him, since i didn't care that much for the waldoes-lacking version all that much.  

I do wonder if this means they will scale back on the number of spidey waves we get, especially during non-movie years.  Feels like hasbro has covered an awful lot of the A-list villains & allies already, as well as most of the more popular costume variants.

Do you think they'll still be able to revisit characters from the movies before the deal broke?

But I don't think they would since that would promote movies that aren't part of Disney.

Spidey is the most profitable character in marvel  with one of the biggest fan. Do you think disney cares if they promote a movie that not theirs when they get all the merch profits?

Right.  Plus, Disney really only had a problem with the Fox stuff at the time.  They still made plenty of product from the amazing Spider-Man movies.  I’m still perplexed why they didn’t do stuff from Venom and into the Spider-Verse to a larger extent

Spider-Man is a popular character, and his lowest-grossing movies still make tons of money, so Hasbro and Disney not jumping on the merchandise train is their loss. Plus, this is not a case like the X-Men movies, in which Fox obtained merchandise profits. Sony will get nothing out of it.

I don't see why not, though it is hard to really see who else needs to be made, since they have done the costumes and the villains

I was mainly referring to Shocker, but I also hope they make a Michael Keaton and Gyllenhaal head sculpt.

Shocker would be okay. As for the head sculpts that is up to the actors

    • 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.
