Marvel Legends House Of X - Powers Of X Wave Coming In 2021 From Hasbro

Marvel Legends House Of X - Powers Of X Wave Coming In 2021 From Hasbro


Jay Cochran - July 10, 2020
Hasbro earlier today held one of their Fan-First Friday live-stream events with the main focus being the announcement of their new Haslab X-Men Sentinel, which we might add is already over halfway to their goal of 6k backers in less than 24 hours. Anyway during the presentation when they started talking about how the design of the Sentinel was heavily influenced by the House of X/Power of X Marvel Comics storyline from Jonathan Hickman, Hasbro's own Dwight Stall casually let it slip that they are planning on releasing at least one entire wave of 6" figures based on that storyline next year.



I don't know if this is something they will be giving us more details on in the coming days as we head into SDCC, but it definitely sounds cool.

We know Hasbro is going to be releasing a Nimrod figure this year which is also influenced by the House Of X storyline.



Since that figure was first announced back in February during Toy Fair, their have seen indications that suggest it will be released in a 3-pack with Psylocke and Fantomex. General thought had been that the Psylocke and Fantomex figures would just be X-Force versions, even though that really isn't in keeping with the Nimrod figure.

Psylocke especially has gone through significant changes recently during the House Of X storyline, so if Hasbro is moving full steam ahead with figures based on that storyline, its possible the entire 3-pack will be House of X inspired.

In the comics Elizabeth Braddock who was the original Psylocke, is now the new Captain Britain.



And the name Psylocke is now being used by the character formerly known as Kwannon.



Fantomex's look as far as I know has not significantly changed since the last time we got him in the Marvel Legends line, but Hasbro would likely update the buck used for that one.



While the House of X wave may not get revealed until Toy Fair time, Hasbro should be giving us full details on the Nimrod figure sometime this month, so stay-tuned.

I think calling the distribution terrible is an understatement. It's so bad, you will be lucky for a whole wave to come in, Hasbro seem to love not giving us certain figures.

At least around here, distribution has been okay with the last couple of waves. There aren't many of them, but they can be found.

I was not expecting much on the responses, but I'm glad for everyone's feedback. I'm pretty sure someone overseas can go all out and spend the 500 USD, however if Hasbro wants to 'thank' their international fans for their support all these years, they should do something with the unreasonable marked up price. For the single standard 6 inch figure, the price hike can be bearable which is approximately 25%..but for a high priced figure, adding 25% or more is a lot.

I agree with you leokearon, I can try to find cheaper else where sometimes, but distribution is terrible.

Sorry, I may be in the minority, but no 1 action figure + accessories, is worth $350+. A sentinel is an Army builder and for them to make one so huge & expensive is a huge FU to those of us that have always dreamed of having 3-5-7 Sentinels to bash our X-Men with. But at a more reasonable scale of 16'-20' inches & based on the classic John Byrne DOFP versions. And much more reasonable & affordable price point. Again, had these been classic version & 20' tall & around $150, I'd have purchased a triad in a N.Y.minute. 

Believe me, I completely understand where you are coming from. I was in shock when I saw how much they were asking for this beast. A few posts up I commented that since this Sentinel was so easy for Hasbro, their next Legend offering for Haslab they could really stick it to us collectors on price

My dilemma ( I guess this is what it is) is that I can afford the $370, just trying to decide if I should. Haha

The thing is Hasbro must have European warehouses, but clearly they don't stock Marvel legends or not very well. As I have said on this forum before Marvel legends are the most expensive 6 inch toys you can get here in Ireland and that's mostly down to the biggest toystore here not selling them. But if they do, they can be cheaper than other shops but the distribution is awful.

Manufacturers still make money on wholesale pricing. Nobody would manufacture anything if they didn't. Obviously, Hasbro is making money on these. I think you're actually saying the same thing as me, which is that Hasbro is not charging anybody less than $350. Their international partners are not getting a real And if Hasbro is charging them $350, that's effectively the wholesale price. Hasbro isn't going to take less of a cut than that. If international customers throw enough of a fit about this, the logical result will be that for the next project the price-tag in the US will be higher, to allow for a real wholesale cushion, so that they can charge the same price worldwide. It won't lower the international price.

Think of it this way. Legends figures are priced at $20 most places, and Hasbro sells them for that price to consumers through their website, but when they sell to a distributor or retailer they're selling that same figure for around $15. They've worked out the math where they can make money on selling that figure for $15, and let distributors and retailers fight over the remaining few dollars. They're also happy to make more than $15 by selling directly, but that's neither here nor there. They instead sell the army-builders for $15, but only sell them direct through their website. They can do this because they're effectively selling at wholesale direct to consumers, and cutting out their retail partners. For them, it's the same math, just a different sales venue. If an international vendor wanted to buy up a ton of army-builders at $15 with the intention of selling them for $25, they could do it. Hell, Hasbro might even work out a shipping deal with them to get them the figures more easily, but they're not going to give them a better deal than $15 each, even though they're giving the same deal direct to consumers domestically. I'm pretty sure that's what's going on here. Hasbro has worked out a deal to ship to a select few international vendors, but they're still ordering at the same price as US customers. There's only one price direct from Hasbro, whether you're a US consumer or an international vendor.

I've shopped for Legends in England, Ireland, France, and Germany. If they had European warehouses to receive product direct from China, those figures would be cheaper. They all have shipping from the US built into their pricing.

Dude we already talked about a couple days ago.

That post was inadvertently thrown in with my comment bout blowing $350 on 1 figure. Don't know how as I was just responding to McHogan's comment.

That $350 you're not blowing On 1 figure will get you about 16 new single carded ML figures during the yr or a little less if buying up 2-3-4 packs & deluxe figs.

IM has never been shown to be as tall as Thor who's 6'6.  His classic comic based 60s/70s/80s armors are all form fitting so don't see where he gains all that hgt at. Only IM armors that were larger were The space/sea suits & HBIM & Thor buster armors.The Thing shoulda been put on a shorter buck as he is a 6 footer. Maybe in the other countless Marvel Earths, he's a 7 ft giant, but not 616 Earth. Hawkeye is 6'3, Cap is 6'2. But I'm alright with Clint being depicted as being 6' or 6'1. Vision also shoulda been on a bit bigger buck as he's 6'3 as well. Beast also was oversized due to Lee drawing him bigger than other previous artists ever did. My preferred version of Mr McCoy is the Perez version, which I hope we get someday soon.

Yessir, you are correct, that is the same argument I have with myself when I get tempted. My rational self says the $370 ( after tax) could be better spent on many figures.

the geek in me says this Sentinel is this generations  USS Flagg and by god I wont be jealous of the one kid I knew who owned that monster all over again

Im swaying on getting a Sentinel, but the cautious man in me says Hasbro saw how easily they made their goal(s) at what in my opinion is overpriced but very awesome toy so they are in their dark lair wringing their hands about how much MORE they could charge for their next project..

My arguement had nothing to do with the physical traits of the characters.  

But i do agree, Norrin Radd should be taller than Captain America, but so should Ironman and Hawkeye, Stark in armor should actually be as tall a Thor. Deapool should be as tall as captain america, if we are going by their recorded heights.  The Thing should be shorter than he is, etc. etc.
