Avengers Video Game Marvel Legends Hulk Figure Coming To Gamestop?!?

Recommended Posts

Anyone who didn't see this coming is fooling themselves. It's not a particular interest of mine, especially with all the roadblocks and pitfalls that seem to happening with the game, but I understand it's a necessity as games have indeed become a major source of mainstream entertainment media. What bothers me is it seems they are transitioning straight from the movie based figures to game based figures which will, once again, inundate us with droves of Captain America and Iron Man while characters like Tigra, Swordsman and Crystal may continue to get bumped down the line in favor of those characters, once again. I like the rumored list with Mach I and Rage though, but like many others, I'm highly skeptical, but I would pleasantly love to be wrong. Since it's being pushed as the updated, fully 3D, console version of Avengers Alliance it could be a way to get many of those fringe characters in the mix. The problem is, will they be comic based or game based? Would it even matter to most? The game characters will resemble the comics much more than the movies, but y'now, they still won't be the same. I do like the look of the Iron Man and he looks better suited (pun intended) to fit in the the comic figs rather that the MCU figs, but how many of the same old characters will we be ultimately subject to?

I also have an issue with the highly touted so-called "success" of the PS4 Spider-Man figures. Of course, the game itself was a massive breakout success, but that didn't necessarily carry over to the figures itself. Personally I liked the first GameStop exclusive and I think that was the general consensus throughout the collector community, but can anyone deny that they sat on the shelves for way too long? As for the current batch of "Scuba Spidey's" sitting on the shelves right now in mass retail stores, if I've seen one of them sold, I've seen a million of them sold and I've seen neither. I know there are some good reviews on them, but I swear, if it weren't for the BAF they'd have to be thrown into the Great Pit of Carcoon to the all-powerful Sarlacc to be digested over a thousand years.

Of course, as usual, the figures that I have little to no interest in will look amazing and I will be compelled to get them no matter what niche they fall into, so really there's no point of me complaining just yet. I'll wait to see. I honestly hope to be pleasantly surprised. The big question is, will they be doing a BAF with these waves, if not, I hope they intend on including a butt load of accessories.

Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmm I would be happy with those, if true!

I don't care much for the default Thor and Cap game designs but who know, I may change my mind after playing the game.

I know my little nephews love the ps4 Spidey game and the figures Hasbro is putting out. Pretty sure they'll  be interested in the Avengers game figures too.

There's supposed to be 7 total figures in this wave, I haven't been able to find out their identity's yet. They all have the "Gameverse" tag on them in other store's datatbases, So I'm not quite sure if that means they're all going to be based off the game or not.

 

off-topic wise. Other legends listings are starting to pop up in various distributors data bases. I found 4 more product numbers for what looks like possible future fan channel exclusives. (No names given just product numbers).

 

I also found listings for the upcoming The Eternals and Venom 2020 wave assortments. The distributor list them for estimated July Pre-order dates.

Thanks Jtprime17 for the intel. I've also done some additional checking and the listings seem legit on the VG assortment, but also can't determine if we are dealing with all VG figures or a mix of comic and VG. My feeling is it will be a mix with Captain America, Iron Man and Ms Marvel being VG based  and Rage, Mach-1, Leader and Mar-Vel being comic based. Also no idea if this wave will have a BAF or not.

Wait did you just say mar-vell?

8 figures seems a little large (but not unheard of), could Rage be a BAF? In any case, while I would LOVE a Mar-Vell figure,I can't help hoping this is an all VG wave. Just for variety sake, you understand. Something that's not an MCU, and not comic-based, just to bust up the routine.

We can go back to endless Deadpools and alternate Spideys the wave after. Just give us this one.

It seven. Cap is 2 per case.

Also they would never list the baf so rage would be a regular figure

Fair enough, but technically, they haven't listed anything. We're still deep in rumorville . . . at least till the Has' makes with some facts.

Really hoping they can work in a Thor and Widow to. Yeah, I know this year is gonna be lousy with Widows, but I actually LIKE the Gamerverse designs and want as many of the characters as I can get.

Probably end up being store exclusives.

The only two characters that appeal to me in the FF and Spider-Man wave are Doom and Shang-Chi and Vulture. I find this wave with Rage, Mach-1, Leader and Mar-vell  is much more appealing. Everyone is going to have different preferred favorites especially as you start getting into the more obscure characters, hence why the Spider-Man, Cap and Iron Mans that everyone always complain about are always found in these waves.

We're not that deep into rumorville. These are listings being put out to retailers which 9 times out of 10 turn out to be correct. Nothing is 100% confirmed until Hasbro confirms it and changes are possible, but its not like we are talking far fetched rumors either. The biggest questions here are the unkowns like comic vs video game based, but Tarrot is right they never list BAF in individual listings so Rage is almost def a single pack figure not BAF.

Seems like a strong lineup for a mish mash wave of comics and video game Avengers. I will say, I will never understand retailers' stupidity, ne ignorance?, regarding asking for more heroes than villains in assortments.

I have observed as a fan and collector of multiple lines, that the retail folks are quite wrong about that stance: Starscream and Megatron shelf warm far less than Bumblebee and Hot Rod, Flint and Lady Jaye far more than Zartan and Baroness, Man at Arms and Stratos far more than Beastman and Triklops, and so too it is with Marvel...that Leader figure should have been packed by 2, and the obscure (to most lay fans) Gamerverse Cap limited to 1x per case.

More than likely due to the fact that these retailers were too cool for comics growing up & considered it a "nerd/geek" thing to do. They only know of the big name characters such as Spidey/Hulk/Ironman/Cap, everything else is no biggie to them. You ask a retailer, "whaddya think of  a comic based "Tyrak the treacherous"  being in a MCU Namor line? They'd look at you like you got a 3rd eye growing & respond with "huh, who"?

 

As far as the Gameverse wave, I was not aware that a comic based Capt Mar'vell, as long as it's his classic & iconic look, that would be the only fig in that wave I will snag!

Yep, its Marvell, the Leader and Rage for me out of this wave. And maybe the BAF if its something I want. Not at all interested in the video version figures.

That's just it, I don't have any of those except citizen V, and speaking of my display it needs a big overhaul. I've gotten lazy lately.

I'll definitely get Rage and probably Mach-1. Pass on the others.

I really hope that video game Hulk is as big as new recent comic version but more similar to endgame baf in articulation and detail, in the case, if we are getting new mold, like we did with Iron Man, but they probably will reuse current Hulk mold me thinks.

At 22 dollars my guess it might just be the movie figure with a new head.

When it comes to the wave listing, I doubt it. Other than maybe Mach 1 and/or Rage, just because Hasbro seems to be building those teams, I heavily doubt the rest of the comic characters in the wave

I would imagine we’ll see the comic halves for those two waves at Toy Fair. Movie figures will probably be revealed closer to the movie dates. Fingers crossed for movie Venom and Carnage!! I’m sure we’ll also get a look at those fan channel exclusives, along with the rest of the Deadpool and AoA waves.

Oh wow I hope this is true! I’d love to have an updated Leader and Mar-Vell! 
 

Rage and Mach- 1 would be nice additions. Especially Mach-1 for my thunderbolts!

As far as the the new Cap and Iron Man I’ll be pretty content to see how they turn out. Even if the game doesn’t do so well, I’m still interested in them because they (Iron man so far. seems to be a good modern rendition of Iron Man that isn’t too specific, so it could work in any display. 
 

As for Kampala Kahn I would hope they would give us her in civilian clothes like this image here, but if they don’t no biggie.
