You have probably heard by now that Hasbro
will be holding another one of their Fan-Friday live-streams events tomorrow (7/10)
for the Marvel Legends
line, but what might we see actually revealed? While we can't say for sure, it is always fun to speculate.
Indications I have heard would suggest this is one X-Men fans will definitely want to tune in for, and that overall this is going to be a good month for Marvel's Mutants.
We told you before
about the clue Marvel Brand Team member Dan Yun
dropped last week, leading us to think details for this image teased back in May would be forthcoming.
Rumors suggest that this image is a tease for 1 of 2 Marvel Legends based SDCC exclusives
that are reportedly coming this year. Back in May Hasbro suggested that both SDCC exclusives would be X-Men based and that one would make comic fans happy and the other would make movie fans happy.
Specifically the foot image is thought to be a tease for the comic based one
which is RUMORED
to include members of the Hellfire Club
If true, the Club's leader Sebastian Shaw (The White King)
seems almost assured to be included. Other members that have been suggested include The Black Queen Selene, White Bishop Donald Pierce
and White Queen Emma Frost
. The Frost figure would likely feature the character with a more classic look than what we have seen Hasbro give us previously. If a Hellfire Club
set is coming, I hope they also includes the Black Bishop Harry Leland
and Mastermind Jason Wyngarde
. Wyngarde after all played a significant role in the Dark Phoenix
storyline, which is probably what the Hellfire club is most noted for.
As for the second SDCC exclusive set that is supposed to make X-Men movie fans happy, well I have heard nothing remotely concrete for that one. Since this year marks the 20th Anniversary
of the release for the first 20th Century Fox X-Men movie
, a boxset featuring the X-Men in their black leather outfits makes the most logical sense to me. If they stick to just the first movie, I could envision the set including figures of Cyclops, Jean, Storm
. They might throw Rogue
in to, but she didn't have a black leather outfit for the first movie.
We already know from Toy Fair back in February that we are getting a two pack with Professor X and Magneto
, which will feature old and young headsculpts for each character.
I've heard whispers that the two-pack along with the other X-Men movie
figures they showed off in February will be going up for pre-order pretty soon. If you forgot, that includes Logan with Leather Jacket
from the first X-Men movie.
There is also the Amazon Exclusive Logan
figure, but that one went up for pre-order back in February and is currently sold out.
Besides X-Men, Hasbro also showed off a number of Deadpool movie
based figures with Deadpool, Negasonic Teenage Warhead
. Those I think will be going up for pre-oder later in the month.
is coming to, but he is a Walmart
exclusive, and have no idea when that one will be made available.
Other X-Men related items that were teased during Toy Fair back in February include, a new Legacy Rogue
figure which is RUMORED
to be released in a 2-pack with an updated Pyro
figure. We also saw a new 1st Appearance Storm
figure which is RUMORED
to be released as a two-pack with a new Thunderbird
figure. The Storm set should be released as a Target
Oh and then their is the Nimrod
figure, which RUMORS
suggest will be released as an Amazon exclusive 3-pack
along with figures of Psylocke
Now I have no idea if Hasbro
will be showing any of these off tomorrow or wait until later in the month for their virtual SDCC reveals. I assume if nothing else the SDCC exclusives will be revealed tomorrow. Would be kind of silly to wait until the actual SDCC event to reveal those.
The thing we think Hasbro
will likely be focusing most of their live-stream video on tomorrow though, is the Marvel Haslab project
they first announced during Toy Fair. All indications are that the Haslab figure
for Marvel will be some kind of Sentinel
. This is based on the tease they gave back during Toy Fair, and then again when Dwight showed us this leg back in May.
We figure the main focus of this week's live-stream will be on the Haslab project
, because back in February they told us this was about the time they would reveal those details. Also in their announcement for this week's video, they say that Ryan
will be joined by Jesse Falcon
, and that they would be sharing BIG
news coming to Marvel Legends. We couldn't help but notice the emphasis they put on word big in the announcement, and it doesn't get much bigger than what will likely be an announcement for the biggest Marvel Legends figure every made.
Whatever is shown or announced tomorrow, we will be sure to bring you complete coverage of it right here on Marvelousnews. Things will be kicking off at 11am ET, so be sure to check back then.
