  1. ReedPOP has now officially canceled their UK based MCM Comic Con Conventions for this summer season due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The MCM Comic Con London in recent years has been one of the conventions Hasbro was attending to reveal new product. Here is the official statement:
  2. Perhaps my favorite look and possibly the most unique looking of the primary suits worn by Tony Stark, is the Silver Centurion Iron Man armor. The darker red and silver colors were a vast departure from the typical gold and red armor normally worn by the character. The suit first appeared back in 1985 in Iron Man #200. Besides looking very different from previous armors in both colors and design, the debut of this armor also marked the long return of Tony Stark as Iron Man. 2 years earlier in Iron Man #169, Stark gave up being Iron Man due to his struggles with alcohol and handed the reins over to his best friend James Rhodes. Rhodes was the man behind the helmet for such major events as the first Secret Wars and became one of the founding members of the West Coast Avengers. Stark had actually created the Silver Centurion armor for Rhodes, but ended up having to don the suit himself after Rhodes was critically injured at the hands of Obadiah Stane and Stan's Iron Monger armor. Stane and the Iron Monger armor of course later appeared in the first Iron Man movie. Stark continued wearing the red and silver armor for around 3 years, in both the Iron Man and West Coast Avengers comics. Eventually the suit was badly damaged in issue #230 at the hands of another armored character known as Firepower. This was during the classic "The Armor Wars" storyline where Stark also took on former ally Steve Rogers, who at the time wore the USAgent costume and was going by the name of The Captain. The shield Rogers used during that time was actually created by Stark and only contained Vibranium. After the events of "The Armor Wars" and his battle with Firepower in issue #230, Stark faked Iron Man's death and created a new armor and persona for the armored Avenger. At the time Stark's identity as Iron Man was a secret. The new armor while pretty cool in design returned to the traditional gold and red colors. Over the years we have gotten a few action figures based on the comic book version of the Silver Centurion armor. Toy Biz gave us a very cool 6" Marvel Legends version, which featured a removable faceplate and a giant rocket space pack that also acted as a display stand. While Hasbro has yet to give us a 6" version, they did give us a 3.75" version in their Iron Man 2 line, and then again in their Marvel Universe line as part of their comic 2-pack assortment. We have also seen variations of the Silver Centurion from the movies and Armored Adventures done as figures, but those weren't comic book accurate. So when will Hasbro give us a modern 6" Marvel Legends figure based on the Silver Centurion armor from the comics? Well if rumors and computer listings are to be believed, the answer should be sometime later this year, likely released as a Walgreens exclusive. Whether this will be a retooled figure based on one of the more recent Iron Man figures Hasbro has released, or a completely new sculpt remains to be seen, but I have high hopes it will look good either way. The Walgreens's exclusive Iron Man 2020 figure is hitting shelves now, and we know Hasbro also has a new War Machine figure slated for release later this year as a deluxe figure. My guess is, we will see the Silver Centurion announced around July with a later in the year release date. Until then check out this cool custom 6" Silver Centurion Iron Man figure done by Lokoboys. Let us know in the COMMENTS SECTION, will a Silver Centurion Iron Man Marvel Legends figure be a must buy purchase for you?
  3. Toy Biz was the first company to really successfully implement the Build-A-Figure concept with their 6” Marvel Legends line, where pieces of a larger character based figure would be included with a number of individually packaged normal sized figures. The idea was two-fold. It gave people more incentive to purchase all the figures in a wave so they could complete the larger figure, hence increasing sales for a company. It also allowed larger based characters to be released, that might not otherwise be feasible to do because of packaging restraints, allocated retail shelf space and price. In the beginning we were treated to building sized characters such as Galactus, Giant Apocalypse and the Sentinels. Overtime the Build-A-Figures were shrunk down so they were usually still larger than a regular figures, but not super big. We got the likes Onslaught, Modok, Mojo and many others. The Build-A-Figure concept became so popular and successful, that many other toy companies started implementing similar type figures in their own action figure lines. In recent years however, we have started to see a new trend emerge from Hasbro, who of course took over Marvel Legends and the Build-A-Figure concept from Toy Biz years ago. More and more we are seeing the Build-A-Figure being reissued, completely assembled and in it’s own packaging. These figures are usually sold as a more expensive deluxe figures. Some of of these deluxe figures are primarily just re-paints, while others incorporate more sculpting modifications, which allow them to offered as an almost completely new figures. This new trend of course has been received with mixed reactions from the collectors. Some view it as an easier way to obtain the larger characters, since they no longer need to buy the individual figures in a wave. Others who purchased the full waves in order to complete the Build-A-Figure, feel a bit taken advantage of with Hasbro now re-releasing them individually, especially the ones with only slight modifications. Some argue that Hasbro should do away with the Build-A-Figure completely, and just release the larger characters as deluxe figures. The downside too that is, Hasbro would likely see a decline in sales for certain individual characters released in a wave, especially those more obscure characters that many aren’t as familiar with. Hence making it less likely they will continue to release those more obscure guys. Even the variety of larger scale characters might become more limited, as retailers would likely only want to carry the well known characters. While it can sometimes be a pain to buy a figure you really don’t want, in order to complete that Build-A-Figure you do want, I think the pro’s of the concept still out weight the con’s of it. As for the deluxe figures, I think its better when the figure has significant modifications to it, but even in the case of the recently announced Kingpin repaint that only has slight modifications to it, I like we are getting a second one so we can use one of the bodies with the Shadow King head sculpt that Hasbro released with the Professor X figure. Now we get to have both Kingpin and Shadow King on our shelves without having to purchase two Build-A-Figures. Let us know in the COMMENTS SECTION. Should Hasbro continue with Build-A-Figures, go with just deluxe figures or continue to do both?

  5. The first Monday of every month brings a new Marvel Legends Fan Channel exclusive reveal. Today's will be coming soon, what will it be????
  6. I don’t know what it’s been like for you these past several weeks. For me, I have been stuck in my house with a COVID-19 pandemic shelter in place rule in place, leaving only for a supply run to the corner grocery or taking my dog for a walk. My access to new action figures (assuming any are available on local shelves) has been greatly restricted. I still have access to shopping online for my plastic fix at places like BBTS, but the recent events really have me thinking about what the future holds for action figures and how things might change long-term. Obviously, with many under the same type of shelter in place restrictions, I am sure several will turn to more online shopping, at least in the immediate future. With that in mind, WHAT IF a company like Hasbro started shaping how they release figures based more on the online delivery channels? In particular, I was looking at their recent Marvel Legends Hydra Soldier army builder figure. The single-packed figure with a few accessories shipped in a mailer-type box with some artwork on it and only cost $14.99. The packaging is what intrigues me the most about this figure. Not only does it meet the new non-plastic standards Hasbro is said to be implementing soon for all of its brands, the box also is simple and (I assume) cheaper than the regular Marvel Legends packaging. If most people move to buying their figures online, there is no longer a real need to have the figure visible in the package and the artwork makes it nice if you don’t want to open it. Now, I don’t see Hasbro as able to lower the price of their Marvel Legends figures across the board to $14.99. Keep in mind the Hydra figure had already been released multiple times, so Hasbro likely already earned the return on their investment in the sculpt. If this was a brand new figure, I doubt they would be able to sell it as cheaply, even with cheaper packaging. You hear over and over in the media that this is the new norm, and I don’t really know what that means for the long-term. I certainly don’t see people fully giving up shopping at physical stores. I do think there will be a significant shift to more online activity, including shopping, even after the immediate crisis subsides. So maybe shifting the focus on how one sells their products isn’t such a bad idea?

  15. During Toy Fair back in February, Hasbro revealed they were going to be offering the first Marvel Legends themed product this year for their Haslab crowdfunding service. While no specific details have been announced, all indications suggest that the item being done will be some type of X-Men Sentinel figure. Hasbro also said that full details would be revealed sometime before San Diego Comic Con in July. Since Toy Fair, a lot of things have changed in the world thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, causing a lot of uncertainty on many fronts. Assuming Hasbro is even able to still move forward with production on such a figure right now, the question remains should they? Could a crowdsourcing project for a figure that is likely going to be a fairly expensive be successful in a year like this? A year were disposable income is likely going to decrease for many, as lots of businesses are temporarily shutdown? At this point we don't even really know if San Diego Comic Con will happen or not this year, which would likely be the best chance for people to see the figure up close and personal before deciding if they wanted to plop money down for it or not. Obviously with everything going on in the world today, we realize this isn't a top priority question. Still we wanted to hear from you the Marvel Legends collector, do you want or think Hasbro should move forward with their Haslab Sentinel this year, or do you think it would be better to wait until next year when things are much more likely to be back to normal? Let us know in the COMMENTS SECTION.

  20. During Toy Fair it was officially announced that another classic Marvel villain was getting the Marvel Legends treatment with Hulk’s arch-nemesis The Leader. The Leader With that I thought it would be fun to create a list of 15 non-X-Men and Spider-Man based villains that would be cool to see made for Hasbro's Marvel Legends line. Of course I would love to hear your own thoughts about which villains you want to see made in the COMMENTS SECTION below. This list is done in alphabetic order. Attuma One of Namor’s arch-enemies but has been known to go toe-to-toe with the entire Avengers team. His Atlantean armor alone would make for a great looking figure. Diablo An evil alchemist and known enemy of the Fantastic Four, Diablo was originally created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and we think is long overdue for the Marvel Legends treatment. Ghost We’ve gotten a more modern version and a female MCU version, but I would really like to see a figure done based on his original look from the Iron Man comics. Graviton The Avengers version of Magneto, this villain while never really gaining the notoriety Magneto has I always liked, especially in the pages of West Coast Avengers. Instead of magnetism he controls gravity and even appeared in the Agents of SHIELD tv series. High Evolutionary Not always depicted as a villain, but this is a must have figure for me. He’s gone against the likes of the Fantastic Four, Avengers and even the X-Men in the X-Men Animated Series. I’ve always liked the design of his armor and his power levels are off the charts. Jigsaw One of Punisher’s arch-enemies, this one actually got a Marvel Legends figure made during the Toy Biz days. That one featured the character wearing a Punisher style uniform, but I would love to see a figure made in his classic yellow outfit and have the neck brace. Kang Admittedly I wasn’t sure if I should put this one on the list. Both Toy Biz and Hasbro have given us versions of Kang, but being he is such a heavyweight caliber bad guy, I really think Hasbro should give us a nice updated version. Killer Shrike This is one that could fall under the category of being a Spider-Man villain, but he has gone up against others and was even a member of the Masters of Evil. He's not a major villain but always thought he was pretty cool. Mister Hyde This is one of those big dudes I think would make a perfect fit for a Deluxe offering. He has gone up against the likes of Daredevil, Spider-Man, Hulk, Captain America and many others so he will fit in well with a variety of other Marvel Legends figures on your shelf. Orka Another villain for Sub-Mariner who is also know going up against the likes of the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, She-Hulk, and the Defenders. This is another big character I think would make a great deluxe figure. Red Ghost Another classic Fantastic Four villain I would love to see made in figure form. If they could release him in a three pack with his super apes I think this would be a must have for many. Stilt Man Every time I do one of these Villain lists, Stilt Man always gets included. While not the most menacing villain in the Marvel Universe, I just think it would make a really cool action figure with his stilt like legs. Super Adaptoid This is another villain I personally would really love to see. He is a android that mimics the abilities of the heroes he fights. I would love to see a figure based on his classic look which mimics the abilities of the Avengers such as Captain America, Iron Man and Hawkeye. The Mandarin Toy Biz gave us a version back in the day but I think it’s high time Hasbro gave us a comic version of Iron Man’s arch-nemesis. Mandarin has had many different looks over the years but I prefer the green and yellow robe look myself. Wizard Another classic Fantastic Four villain which is hard to believe we have yet to get a Marvel Legends figure of. Hopefully with Hasbro doing more FF based figures recently, Wizard will soon be on the way.
  21. Hasbro's CEO Brian Goldner was on CNBC this morning and overall gave a pretty positive outlook for the future of the company despite growing concerns over Covid-19. He indicated production would be back at full capacity in China by the end of week and that sales for the company remained strong, in large part because demand was up for their gaming products as people hunker down at home. While production due to factory closures overseas had fallen behind a bit, he indicated that he felt they would soon be able to offset that and be back on track as things ramp back up. He also said their were no plans for any kind of layoffs in the foreseeable future.

  23. It seems many of those looking for the new Target exclusive Marvel Legends Red Hulk deluxe figure from Hasbro are having a bit of difficulty finding it on shelves. Most Target stores as I understand it put their limited stock of this figure out on shelves this past weekend when they reset their toy aisles, and of course they quickly sold out. I am told stores should be getting more of these figures in stock sooner or later, so if you haven't found it yet I would resort to secondary market prices just yet. The figure is currently listed on the Target website if you know where to look, which is HERE. It is not currently available for purchase online, but you can use the feature to check and see if your local store has it in stock. Keep in mind that feature however isn't always 100% accurate. If you want to go into the store and easily check to see if it's in stock, here are some numbers to help you out: DPCI: 087-16-1602 UPC: 5010993685813
