Looks like BenIrvin has been doing some retail store computer searching and discovered a number of new Marvel Legends wave listings. As always the listings don't give us much info in the way of specific figures, as code names are used. It does however give us an idea of whats in the pipeline. One of the most interesting things of note is the listing of a new X-Men wave. This is possibly the House of X wave Hasbro had previously said earlier in the year was coming and/or might contain the 4 figures Hasbro teased in their last live-stream event. 5010993791453 MVL X MEN LEGEND ASST 5010993790289 - MVL X-Men Legends 2 5010993790166 - MVL X-Men Legends 3 5010993790531 - MVL X-Men Legends 4 5010993790159 - MVL X-Men Legends 5 5010993790524 - MVL X-Men Legends 6 5010993790258 - MVL X-Men Legends 7 The four teases Hasbro gave in that live-stream said 1. We would get one figure that was a character Toy Biz did and Hasbro hadn't. 2. An old Hasbro Marvel Legends figure getting an update. 3. A 3.75" Marvel Universe figure being done in 6" form. 4. A character that had never been done before. Earlier this week Dan Yun from Hasbro posted on social media saying the 4 figures teases in the last live-stream would be part of the same wave, though it looks like he since deleted that tweet. Oh and then there was the hand with the yellow glove Hasbro teased two live-stream video's ago which was likely for some kind of new Rogue figure. Toad, Avalanche and a new Blob Build-A-Figure seem to be fan-favorite choices for getting the figure treatment and would fit the criteria of Hasbro's recent clues. Other waves discovered is a new Spider-Man one which is likely the rumored Into The Spiderv-Verse wave we told you about the other day with the Miles Morales Spider-Man, Peter B. Parker, Spider-Gwen and Marvel Comics versions of Frogman and Hand Ninja. This wave may see a Stiltman Build-A-Figure which we think Hasbro was teasing two live-stream videos ago. This should be the first wave listed for 2021, however we will likely see out by end of December. 5010993790951 SPD LEGENDS - SULFUR 8 5010993791040 SPD LEGENDS - METHANE 5010993791064 SPD LEGENDS - MANGANESE 10 5010993791071 SPD LEGENDS - LODINE 11 5010993790937 SPD LEGENDS - SANDSTONE 12 5010993790920 SPD LEGENDS - SAPHIRE 13 The next wave is the long rumored second wave of Avengers figures due out this year. This wave should include a mixture of video game and comic based figures. There is also a possibility the Build-A-Figure will be Modok from the new Avengers video game from Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics that will be out on September 4. 5010993791385 AVN LEGENDS ASST 5010993790814 AVN LEGENDS MSE 1 5010993791125 AVN LEGENDS MSE 2 5010993791132 AVN LEGENDS MSE 3 5010993791026 AVN LEGENDS MSE 4 5010993790890 AVN LEGENDS MSE 5 5010993790982 AVN LEGENDS MSE 6 5010993791101 AVN LEGENDS MSE 7 The final wave is completely new to us and listed simply as SHC which could be for Shang-Chi. The names are code names so no help there on determining what they are. There is the Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings movie currently slated for a May 2021 release, but with so much uncertainty in the movie world it's unknown if that will get pushed back or not. Originally there was going to be an Eternals themed wave due out this year but that got delayed when the movie did. 5010993791545 - SHC LEGENDS ASST 5010993786510 - SHC Legends Captain 1 5010993790463 - SHC Legends Pirate 2 5010993790470 - SHC Legends Sailor 3 5010993786527 - SHC Legends CWS 4 5010993790494 - SHC Legends Yacht 5 5010993785780 - SHC Legends Halo 6 As always these listings are subject to change so do treat them as rumors until we get official confirmation from Hasbro. Hopefully Hasbro will give us details on most of these at the end of the month when they hold their virtual Pulse-Con on September 25-26.
Announced earlier today by The New York Times in an exclusive interview with writer Gene Luen Yang, Marvel Super Hero Shang-Chi will be getting a brand-new limited series this June. Known for his Eisner Award-winning work, American Born Chinese - the first graphic novel ever to be nominated for a National Book Award – Yang will be teaming up with artists Dike Ruan (Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man) and Phillip Tan (Black Order) to craft the modern adventures of Marvel’s beloved master of the martial arts, with an all-new costume designed by artist Jim Cheung! Yang could not suppress his excitement for the new series. “I mean, it’s Shang-Chi,” he told The New York Times. “He’s probably the most prominent Asian — I guess he’s Asian-American now since he’s moved over here — Asian-American super hero.” In this new series, Shang-Chi’s fight for justice will collide with his past. When the hero finds himself pulled back into the fold, no one will be ready for what will be unleashed. With a target on his back after the revitalization of his father’s secret society, the balance of power will shift in an epic tale of succession, family, and betrayal. “The basic idea that his father is a supervillain is still there,” said Yang. “Zheng Zhu has been around a very long time. He has other kids besides Shang-Chi, so we’re going to explore some of those sibling relationships.” Equipped with incredible knowledge and skills in the martial arts, Shang-Chi’s action-packed exploits have been thrilling readers for almost 50 years. Since his introduction, Shang-Chi has become a breakout hero in the Marvel Universe, appearing in multiple series as well as his own successful and acclaimed solo run.

Destin Daniel Cretton has been picked up by Marvel Studios to helm the Shang-Chi project. The project will feature the studio's first Asian lead and is based on the classic character known for his martial arts prowess. The script is being penned by Wonder Woman 1984 screenwriter Dave Callaham and will update the character for modern audiences. Marvel is said to be planning on assembling a largely Asian-American and Asian cast for this feature. Shang-Chi first appeared in 1973’s Special Marvel Edition No. 15 and was created by Steve Englehart and Jim Starlin. The character being born in China to a Chinese father and a white American mother was trained as a martial artist assassin by his father, the infamous pulp villain Fu Manchu, but later became a hero after rebelling against his father's ways. Shang-Chi was a hit character in the '70s, and recently saw a revival as a member of The Avengers during 2012’s Marvel Now! Publishing event. Marvel head Kevin Feige is producing, with Marvel’s Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, and Jonathan Schwartz executive producing. Source: THR
