Marvel Legends 2021 - What We Know And What We Think We Know Is Coming So Far In The New Year Figures Jay Cochran - January 02, 2021 [ edit post ] With 2020 now in the rear-view mirror, and a whole slew of new Marvel Legends products coming in 2021, I thought now was as good as any time to do an updated "What We Know, And What We Think We Know" segment. In these segments I try to recap all the reported confirmed and unconfirmed rumors of Marvel Legends product Hasbro will be releasing in the coming months. Before we get to the recap, I do want to note that it looks like the next "official" Hasbro Marvel Legends reveal will becoming on Monday, January 11. Normally there is a new Marvel Legends reveal made on the first Monday of each month, but from what I can tell for January, that has been pushed to the second Monday of the month, likely due to the recent Holidays and people being off. I am not able to tell you what the reveal on the 11th will be, but I do believe a clue for it can be found in the "Happy New Years" image above. And it's not anything mentioned down below. Ok so lets start off going over everything that has yet to be released, but has been "OFFICIALLY" confirmed by Hasbro. Truthfully this is the smaller portion of the article, since recently by the time Hasbro gets around to announcing it, it starts seeing release. Things like the Spider-Man Stiltman BAF wave, Deluxe Thanos and Firestar figures that Hasbro only announced a short time ago have already started showing up. Hell you may recall that the Avengers Mr. Fixit BAF wave started hitting shelves a week after Hasbro announced it. The two most recent items to show up are the Firestar and Deluxe Thanos figures. You can check out our first review of Firestar HERE. And our first review of the new Deluxe Thanos HERE. So probably the next thing we can expect to start showing up is the newly announced X-Men House Of X Tri-Sentinel wave. This wave includes figures based on the House Of X/Power of X Marvel Comics story-line. The figures in the wave are as follows: Professor X figure -Pair of alternate hands -Alternate head sculpt -BAF Piece Cyclops figure -Alternate head sculpt -Blast effect -BAF Piece Magneto figure -2 Pairs of alternate hands -BAF Piece Jean Grey figure -Pair of alternate hands -Krakoan flower pod -BAF Piece Moira MacTaggert figure -Pair of alternate arms -Alternate head sculpt -Book -Scarf -BAF Piece Omega Sentinel figure -Alternate head sculpt -Pair of alternate forearms -BAF Piece Wolverine figure -Alternate head sculpt The Build-A-Figure is the Tri-Sentinel. You can pre-order these now from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com. Hasbro has also confirmed that they will be releasing a Marvel Legends 6" Mega Deluxe M.O.D.O.K. figure that will cost $50. This is the most expensive Deluxe figure Hasbro has done to date. This one is also available for pre-order at our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com. For exclusives we know that there will be a new Deadpool 2 Movie burned version coming to Amazon in March. You can still pre-order that one through our Amazon affiliate link. Walgreens in the US and EB Games in Canada will be getting a new Fallen Silver Surfer figure coming in early Spring. That one has yet to go up for pre-order. Hasbro also revealed that the theme for this years Walgreens exclusives would be a "Cosmic" one. Following the Silver Surfer will be a new Classic NOVA figure. What follows NOVA remains unknown at this time. Beyond that, Hasbro has given us a few hints/teases for whats to come. We know there will be a new sculpted figure that will have a tail coming. My GUESS for that is an updated Tigra figure, but I really have absolutely no idea on that one. Since they specifically used the words newly sculpted figure in their clue, that suggests to me that this will be a new updated figure of one already released as opposed to a figure of a character never released before. Hasbro also told us that we will be seeing a Cannonball figure with legs in 2021. It's unknown if this will be the same X-Force figure we just got, only with legs as opposed to the blast-off effect, or something else entirely. Maybe a New Mutants version??? Hasbro also revealed that we will be getting a new Classic Ultron figure sometime in 2021. I will be talking more about that one down below in the RUMOR portion of the article. Finally Hasbro has confirmed that they are doing an all-villains "Bring On The Bad Guys" wave this year. The three figures officially confirmed for this wave include Arcade, Dormammu and A.I.M.'s Scientist Supreme. Ok so that brings us to the UNOFFICIAL RUMOR portion of the article. Nothing beyond this point has been OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED by Hasbro. That being said, I personally feel pretty confident in these rumors being legit, otherwise I wouldn't be presenting them to you. Still as I always say, until Hasbro does officially confirm this stuff, well you know. So lets start things off by going back to that Classic Ultron figure we know is coming. While Hasbro didn't tell us how or where it would be released, my info suggests it will be part of a new Iron Man themed wave. The Build-A-Figure for the wave is not known at this time, but the regular figures in the wave look to include the following: - Classic Ultron - Darkstar (Unknown if this will feature her classic look or a more modern one) - Iron Man Modular Armor - Iron Heart - Guardsman (My info was not clear if this will be just a regular classic Guardsman or possibly a more specific version like maybe Curtis Elkins who was part of The Jury. Granted the Sentry version would seemingly be more fitting for a Venom themed wave, but we will have to see.) Hologram - (The assumption is that this will be an Iron Man figure, possibly the more modern Model 68 version.) Iron Man Stealth - (There have been several versions of the Stealth Armor featured in the comics over the years, and I have no idea which specific one the figure will actually be based on. My best guess would be that they will repaint the recent Alex Ross Iron Man figure with stealth colors, but we will have to wait and see.) Lets also finish up what I think will be the remaining three figures in the Bring On The Bad Guys wave. Again the Build-A-Figure is unknown, but the regular figures in the wave look to include Arcade, Dormammu, A.I.M.'s Scientist Supreme, Hydra Supreme, Lady Deathstrike, the Hood and Victor Von Doom. The exact versions we will get for some of these like Hydra Supreme and Victor Von Doom are UNKNOWN. Last year Hasbro released a Retro Fantastic Four Doctor Doom figure as a single release. There should be a full wave of Fantastic Four Retro figures coming in 2021, however I don't have any specific details on what figures will be included at this time. Now on to the Movie and TV stuff, much of which was originally supposed to be released in 2020, but got delayed due to the Pandemic. If you want to AVOID ANY KIND OF MOVIE/TV SPOILERS, then you should STOP reading here. While Hasbro hasn't officially confirmed the figures for the MCU Eternals movie wave, we know what they are, because images of the figures have already leaked out. This wave was originally slated for released this past summer but got pushed when the movie did. The Eternals movie is now slated with a November 5, 2021 release, which means we probably won't officially see these figures on shelves until we get closer to that date. The regular wave of figures which you can check out images of HERE will include the following: - Ikaris who will be played by actor Richard Madden - Sersi who will be played by actress Gemma Chan - Makkari who will be played by actress Lauren Ridloff - Sprite who will be played by actress Lia McHugh - Phastos who will be played by actor Brian Tyree Henry - Kingo who will be played by actor Kumail Nanjiani - Druig who will be played by actor Barry Keoghan The Build-A-Figure will be Gilgamesh. We also know there will be a Deluxe Eternals Kro figure, and some kind of store exclusive single release of Ajak. Hasbro has pretty much said we can expect a wave of figures for the upcoming Shang-Chi: And The Legend Of The Ten Rings movie, but hasb't given us any details about what figures we will see in it. Youtuber rektangular first reported, which I have seen additional info to further confirm, the wave will include the following figures: -Shang-Chi -Civil Warrior -Death Dealer -Iron Man -Leiku Wu -Mei Ling Shang-Chi, Leiku Wu and Mei Ling are all speculated to be movie based while the rest will likely be comic based. Once again the Build-A-Figure for the wave is unknown. There should also be at least 1, though likely 2 waves of Disney+ themed Marvel figures coming in 2021. The first wave which we will likely see around June time frame is slated to include the following: - USAgent - Loki - Baron Zemo - Scarlet Witch - Vision - Winter Soldier - Captain America Captain America is likely going to be Falcon, and no word on what the Build-A-Figure will be. Finally while I don't think I have officially reported on these here, I have talked about them briefly on my YouTube channel. For you Avengers MCU fans, look for 2021 to finally give us an MCU version of both Quicksilver from Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Fat Warrior Thor from Avengers: Endgame. It's NOT ENTIRELY CLEAR to me yet, but looks like these two along with other figures will be released as some kind of sub-line that will be an extension of the previous MCU Anniversary line. Stay-tuned in the coming days for more details on this. So that's it for now. Let me know below in the COMMENTS SECTION your thoughts on the Marvel Legends line in general and what new releases are you most looking forward to in 2021?
