2023 SDCC Hasbro Marvel Legends Brand Panel - Live Streamed

Recommended Posts

Regarding Crystar: Who? I initially thought Jay C made a typo and meant Crystal. I purged most of my Legends. But I am delighted to see Hasbro returning to the packaging with windows. Windowless packaging meant that unless you bought them from small online businesses or pre-ordered them. You were more or less opening a Yu-Gi-Oh! booster pack and gambling on whether or not you were getting the figure that you bought. Toy collecting is not supposed to be like a TCG. You should be guaranteed the product that you want and paid for.

Black Widow comes with both her Straight and Curly Hair heads (its the same molds as the heads from the mandroid wave only these ones have the digital facepaint, they mentioned the arms are new, not sure if the body is reused from that original Winter Soldier figure or if its on the Infinity War mold)

I meant the curly long hair, the one from Iron Man 2.

Kinda funny that she comes with long and curly heads, but not a long and curly head.

Well that we can agree on. I too enjoy the oddball choice every now and again.

A left field character associated with an obscure comic and even more obscure toyline. Oddball indeed...but it does lend some (small) hope that the team is open to other lesser-known characters appearing in figure form. M-11, the Killer Robot....Ruby Tuesday...Equinox, or dare I say it, Revenant from the Mystery Men?

Luke Cage is a must. Lady Bullseye also a likely addition. Clea and Blade are maybes. Not much interest in Fist, Daredevil, or Iron Man and can certainly live without Mindless One so my guess is I'll grab Luke and wait on a sale for Lady B then clearance for any others (or just skip them).

 

Wonder Man and Molecule Man remain my most recent ML pickups aside from Target exclusives.  Been a very slow year for ML purchases for me.

Agree....I'm still not jazzed over Power Man not having an ab crunch and an alt head, but they could do a 2 pack with him and classic Iron Fist, where he has an "angrier", battle-ready face, ab crunch and a ripped yellow shirt. 

Mindless One...once again they put out a figure whose main function is that of a troop builder (Multiple Man), so should be in a 3 pack or so. Also I just can't see these guys without Dr. Strange...so yeah, hard pass here. My irritation at some of their decisions has reached its quota.

Yes the rationale they gave for why Cage doesn't have crunch if frankly Mindless to use a pun. They talk to us like we're idiots. Like we can't look at the Gung Ho figure from the G.I. Joe Classified line and see that they did a smaller figure with similar design and managed to get both on him and have a chest tattoo as well. They could have easily put a crunch underneath the shirt but they cheaped out and decided it was easier to just make BS excuses later. I'll get it because it looks good and we'll probably never get another one. I'll hold out that they will eventually do an updated modern Cage as a general release before too long. But if $25 is the price point we're supposed to be content with from know on we need to see $25 worth of effort into each figure. Also a Mindless One BAF is a slap in the face. Most collectors want more than one Army Builder but I sure am not buying multiple complete waves for this. I saw someone say here before that an army builder wave would be smart. I think that's a great idea. Then a BAF like this would make sense. If they had a Hydra, an AIM, a SHIELD, Doombot, and females of each of these as the singles in the wave, and then a Mindless One BAF I would buy no less than a half dozen waves.

The lack if ab crunch on Luke is odd indeed. I didn't notice until it was mentioned here. It appears they went with sculpt over articulation with Luke but used paint on Vision with a similar problem over the mid section. Wonder how they make that decision. 

For Luke, according to the pics, it doesn't seem to hinder him too much for "big guy" poses. For Vision, to get his truly classic look I wished they had gone with something similar as to how they did Hyperion. There are a few times when I'd fully accept sculpt hindering the articulation to get that "perfect look".

Oh that VHS Smythe, he's almost comic enough to warrant me wanting to get him, but to pay the price for 1 figure isn't worth it, so I guess that's a skip, I'll hold out and wait to see if we ever get a comic version, now if Pulse would open and Canadian Site I'd have bought that, but then again it's just almost comic passable...pretty close, but no cigar.

Mindless One wave is a must for me though, Weird they chose 5 PM for the pre-orders to open, I won't be able to get on that since I'll be at work, I hope it's not a pain to secure that wave.

on another note, maan I love window boxes, so glad they made the right decision and went back to them, just looking at them feels good, that's the way a toy should be. and now we don't have to wonder what's inside.

Hasbro making some decent calls as of late, window boxes, some nice obscure cuts, very nice sculpts, I'm happy.

I put in pre-orders for Pete/Smythe and the whole Marvel Knights Wave minus Daredevil plus an extra Fist Ninja. To my surprise I was even given free shipping even though I'm not a Pulse Premium member - and in fairness it should be free since the order was for over $200. I also got email notices that Goblin/MJ, Drax/Moondragon and Tarantula are all shipping soon.

Also received Anniversary Thor/Destroyer yesterday - that was the last one of the Avengers Anniversary sets that I had been waiting on. I got everything except First Appearance Iron Man, who I chose to skip (at least for now).

I ordered the box from EE. I wanted a DD in and out of the package anyway. Liked that he's the double pack. Haven't ordered a sealed set all year. I've been waiting for sales lately. But everyone except IM and the Fist are must haves, and the Fist is definitely a cool figure to lead my Hand Ninjas.

Speaking of Iron Man, anyone else sick of him.getting jammed into sets he has little to no business being in? Especially considering he gets his own sets with three IMs in them. I get that he sells, but it's getting a bit ridiculous imo. Him in that Marvels set instead of another cosmic character, or in the Shang Chi set for no apparent reason.

As someone who's currently building an Iron Man armory I actually think it's pretty cool. We're getting random Iron Man figures in random places instead of having to wait for Hasbro to do another Iron Man wave or something. The ones in the Marvels and Shang-Chi waves didn't really make sense, but to be fair, nothing about the Shang-Chi wave was Shang-Chi related aside from the movie figures and I think the Marvels wave is being branded as an Avengers wave, hence the BAF being Hulk. At least this Iron Man makes sense here and is a damn cool figure with the shiny black and gold and all the runes and symbols all over his armor.

I will be the last person to complain about Hasbro shoving Iron Man in places, but I feel like that strategy is a bit of a double-edged sword. If you put so many top-tier (excluding the Midnight Suns version) Iron Man figures in non-Iron Man waves, then you're draining the pool of top-tier Iron Man figures to headline potential Iron Man-themed waves. And less potential Iron Man-themed waves means less places where to put figures for Iron Man characters who are not Iron Man himself.
