While 2020 has been crazy year all around and there was nothing normal about this year's San Diego Comic Con or lack there of, we thought we would still throw together one of our recaps of all the things we know are coming for Marvel Legends as well as a few things we think we know are coming this year/early next year.
So first thing we want to suggest is, take any kind of release date listed here with a grain of salt, even more so than usual. Some things are running late but surprisingly we are seeing many things released much sooner than initially indicated. Things that weren't supposed to be out until the fall like the recent Retro Spider-Man wave and Deadpool Strong Guy Build-A-Figure wave are already hitting shelves now.
Normally we try not to cover things in these lists that are already out, but this year that is harder to determine with so much already out overseas. So while some of these things have already started to see a limited release, we thought we would start the list with the X-Men movie stuff.
First off we have the Amazon exclusive X-Men movie Logan in wife beater shirt. This figure was initially listed for pre-order back in February, but has yet to be released. It's currently unavailable for pre-order or purchase on the Amazon website.
Next up we have the X-Men movie Professor X and Magneto 2-pack which features headsculpts for both the young and old versions of the characters.
They are joined by a second X-Men movie Logan figure, this time featuring the character with a brown leather jacket.
and Mystique from the first X-Men movie.
These are available for pre-order at our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com and should be released everywhere later this month.
Joining the X-Men movie figures are several figures from the second Deadpool movie. First up is the Walmart exclusive Cable figure which includes teddy bear. Cable is due out in October. The pre-order for the figure is currently sold out on Walmart's website.
For regular releases, Hasbro is doing a 2-pack with Deadpool himself along with Negasonic Teenage Warhead.
Joining them is a single release of Domino.
These three figures are also listed with an October release date and available for pre-order at our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com.
I should note all the Deadpool 2 movie figures including Cable have been seeing release overseas already as well as some of the X-Men movie ones.
Rounding out the X-Men movie figures is what would have been a San Diego Comic Con exclusive for this year. It's a 2-pack featuring Logan and Professor X from the Logan movie. This set will go up for pre-order at some point on the HasbroPulse website and be available in September.
Hasbro had also planned a second SDCC exclusive this year with the Hellfire Club boxset. This set includes figures of Donald Pierce, Jean Grey Black Queen with alternae Selene head, Sebastian Shaw, and Emma Frost. Like the Logan boxset, this one will be available for pre-order at some point on the HasbroPulse website and be available in September.
Next up is the Old Man Logan and Hawkeye 2-Pack with Baby Hulk. The Hawkeye figure will feature Hasbro's new pin-less technology that they first announced during Toy Fair back in February. This set is being released October and is available for pre-order at our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com.
For other two-packs, look for one with a new figure of Legacy Rogue and Pyro. This will be out by end of year and is also available for pre-order at our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com.
A new Classic Storm and Thunderbird two-pack is coming to Target stores on October 4. The pre-order for this figure is currently sold out. Storm like the Old Man Hawkeye figure will feature the new pin-less technology.
Amazon is getting a new 3-Pack featuring Psylocke, Nimrod, & Fantomex . This set is up for pre-order now and slated with a November 1 release date.
For you Punisher fans, Hasbro is releasing a new rider series set featuring Frank Castle on a black motorcycle. Besides some cool weapons, you also get the viking helmet based on the 5-issue limited Marvel Comic series called Punisher Kill Krew. This is due out in September and available from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com.
On Haslab now is the new 26.3-inch tall Sentinel figure with 6" Bastion. Bastion also comes with an alternate Sentinel Prime headsculpt. As I type this, the crowd-sourcing campaign has 20 days left and has 12,640 backers. The initial goal was 6k.
Since the campaign started, several add-ons have been included to the project. You now get two 18-inch Sentinel “bendy wire tentacle” accessories, alternate battle damaged head and hand, alternate Master Mold head and female 6" Sentinel Prime figure. It's unknown if any more additions will be made to the project before it ends this month.
Back during Toy Fair Hasbro launched a Fan-Vote where people could choose from one of the three choices that included new figures of Silk, Lady Sif and Elektra. The winner was originally supposed to have been announced and released at SDCC this year. Since Comic-Con didn't happen, Hasbro has now said the results of the fan poll and presumably the winning figure itself will be made available sometime this Fall.
For Fan-Channel releases, we can look for an updated Kingpin figure released on Retro cardback. This figure is due out in November and available for pre-order at our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com.
Mysterio is also getting a similar treatment with the retro cardback. It will be out in October. It to is up for pre-order at our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com.
A new Deluxe Toxin figure is also coming in November. You can pre-order it now at our our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com.
Another Walmart exclusive coming from Hasbro this year is the Venomized Captain America figure. It's due out in September, and the pre-order for the figure is sold out on the Walmart website.
So that is it for everything we know 100% about, but there are a few other things we have a pretty good idea are in the works. First we know a Venom themed wave is due out later this year. This wave will likely include among others, the Venomized Spider-Gwen and Miles Morales Spider-Man figures that were first shown at Toy Fair back in February.
We also know there was an Eternals themed wave originally planned to be released this year. Hasbro has said that wave was pushed back to 2021 since the Eternals movie release was delayed due to Covid.
There is the yellow glove Hasbro teased in their last live-stream video. The going theory is that this will be for a new Rogue figure. Just speculating, but I envision this being an updated Jim Lee style figure with new headsculpt and new alternate hands. Possibly included in some kind of 2-pack with a new Gambit figure.
There was also the second tease Hasbro made in that video that leads me to believe some kind of Stilt-Man figure is coming, possibly a Build-A-figure for a future Spider-Man wave.
Then there is the long-rumored Walgreens exclusive Silver Centurion Iron Man figure we are still awaiting confirmation on.
And the HasbroPulse exclusive Hellfire Club Goon army builder figure we have recently seen strong indications for coming.
And finally two other Fan-Channel exclusives we have seen listed by various overseas distributor sites
Marvel Legends Eternals Villian Deluxe Figure
Marvel Legends Vintage F4 Redeco
(Our best guess is this will be the Dr. Doom figure in white we had previously seen rumors for)
So that's it for now. I know there a few other rumors that have been floating around the net since Toy Fair, but we will leave it at these for now. Since Hasbro didn't actually do anything special for SDCC this year, we do expect they will continue to do video stream reveals for Marvel Legends on a semi regular basis throughout the year. They will also continue to do reveals on the first Monday of every month. We will of course update you all on those as they happen. Let us know in the COMMENTS SECTION below what your most looking forward to in the coming days?
