Hasbro Marvel Legends December 2023 Fan-Stream Coverage - X-Men 97 And More

Wow that Lilandra looks great. A lot better than all those mish mash versions we've all been doing with the Silver Sable and Jocasta figures. Shame we didn't get a pic of Brood Wolvie. I'm actually getting more and more excited about that one. I think if that one comes out well it will start a trend of people wanting more and more Brood characters. Good luck with that though. They've had a green light to do and redo as many older figures as they want on more modern models by simply including a Skrull head sculpt but they haven't made good use of that opportunity yet. I guess the bomb that was the Secret Invasion on Disney+ might have doused that idea a bit though. The MCU is both the best and worst thing that ever happened to true Marvel fans and Marvel Legends fans.

Yes they have been pretty darn consistent with maintaining Wolvie's scale to this point. And that's something I give them much credit for. And I guess it could just be a matter of one's taste but I look at previous Logan figures where he's in jeans and they look way bulkier and consequently more accurate to me than these legs. Like seriously all they should have done is taken the same legs from either previous Wolverine or Logan figures and just tweak them with suit pants lines. It's not like they have some other super short character that needs a suit model. I'm sure it's a small thing that most people will have little to no trouble with but it's just one of those things that sticks in my craw.

Yeah, we'll see what it looks like in hand. Thank God they didn't  use the regular suit pants legs...though I can't tell if these are new though, or just reused/modified Happy Hogan legs. Again, need to see it in hand.

They really are promoting these, showing tons of Pics, normally I feel like we don't get so many pics from the Legends team, either they think these won't sell, or they really have faith in these and are pretty happy with themselves, either way Lilandra and Psylocke are outstanding, and I can't wait to get them, Sabretooth is a gem as well, but I'm passing, but really the only Wolverine I have any interest in is Brood Wolvie.

I'm sure these are coming out shortly, and not in May.

They're not Happy Hogan's legs. The folds and knees are different. Plus they would make him way too tall.

Darn Sam with Wings, Want, but don't, already have this figure, makes me so grumpy it didn't come with wings in the first place, but we knew it was always so they could do this, Who would have guessed it would come 7 years later...either way nah over it now, keep the wings Hasbro, I'll stick with what I got, no pun intended but I guess I'll just never have a Fal Cap as fly as this one 🤭wamp wamp.

I'll be very interested in the pricepoint here. The shield and wings are needed, but the realization that there is zero difference to the base figure that is so old is a bit of a problem. They should have changed the neck and face sculpt maybe a "ripped mask busted goggles" alt head or something. Doubt it'll be less than 35 though.

And that's the problem with Hasbro my friend. This is another low energy, low effort money grab coasting off the momentum of some great reveals and some very good efforts. This is exactly like @TheArrow was pointing out in another post. Hasbro is basically bi-polar in their capabilities. On one hand we get Angel which is obviously based of the Vulcan model but with very apparent modifications and Ikaris who looks to be have almost a completely new mold and then we get this. The same old figure they did last time. But now they slap on the wings we should have got the first time and the shield which was unforgivable absent the last time. And then slap a premium tag on it. Similar situation with the new Carnage. This is the most frustrating thing about being an ML fan. But it comes with the territory and it doesn't look to be changing. Build up the good will with proof of your capability and then insult us with lackadaisical indifference. At a higher price point mind you. I'm predicting this thing comes in around $45. That extra bit of plastic seems like something Hasbro would justify charging $20 for. However I never liked Sam as Cap. I like him as Falcon but they didn't even get that right by using the Sufire model for a six-four, 240 guy. When they get that right I'll buy another Sam. But this can rot and I have a feeling for the most part it will.

Wait, what’s wrong with this figure? Just because it isn’t pinless? Why would Hasbro make a brand new mold for this figure when a perfectly good one already exists for it? Same with Carnage. That figure was near perfect when it came out in 2020 and still holds up now. Sure I wanted the classic version but this is a great modern version.

If they re release Sabretooth they should go with smaller head, headsculpt we got is great and superior to previous ones but it's a bit too big, 10 percent smaller head would make this body stand out and more imposing, Mondo figure got that idea really well and to the great effect. I wonder how Toybiz head might sit on that body (with help of Dremel too of course. But I think it more likely to get cartoon style head if there's a rerelease.

Hasbro's Dan Yun has confirmed that the pre-order for the Target Exclusive Marvel Legends Series Falcon Captain America will go live on Target's website tomorrow (2/28) on or around 9am ET. The figure will also be carried at TRU stores in Canada this Spring but it will not be going up for pre-order there tomorrow.
