Marvel Legends Haslab Engine of Vengeance - Hasbro Says They Are Just Gonna Let It Ride And Hope For The Best


Jay Cochran - September 25, 2022
It's not been a good weekend for the Marvel Legends HasLab Engine of Vengeance campaign. Things started going off the rails Friday night when the campaign failed to reach it's early bird goal for the 6" Marvel Legends Robbie Reyes (Human Form) figure. At that time the campaign was sitting at 6,118 backers which meant it still needed 2882 backers to reach the minimum number of 9k backers to move into production.

Once it became apparent the 6" Marvel Legends Robbie Reyes (Human Form) was not going to be included with the campaign, people began canceling their orders and the backer count started moving backwards. As far as I know the only Haslab campagin to have the counter move backwards was the one for the Star Wars Black Series Rancor which failed to get funded. As of Sunday morning the campaign has lost 382 backers now sitting at 5,730, and still seems to continue to be moving in the wrong direction.

The campaign still has time to recover from this weekends loses as it will run until the end of October, however according to Dan Yun from Hasbro they won't be doing any more reveals (I assume meaning showing all the possible stretch goals) or extending the deadline for the Early Bird figure.




Hasbro earlier in the week did go on and reveal the campaign's first stretch goal which is for a 7" Marvel Legends Mephisto figure. That will be included if the campaign were able to reach 12k backers by the end of October.

In my opinion, if Hasbro does nothing, this campaign will not be funded. At this stage probably the only thing they could do is just go on and reveal the remaining stretch goals and hope those are cool enough to entice enough people back to the campaign, but even that wouldn't guarantee anything. Based on Yun's tweet it looks more likely that they will simply just hope for the best but likely are already planning for the worst which would be the first failed Haslab campaign for the Marvel team.

if people didn't want to buy it for whatever reason, then that is their choice. There is nothing unforgivable about it. Their money, their choice. It's not just about you. This was a poorly price haslab and people spoke with their money which is their right. You need to grow up and realize that it not just about you.

Honestly, I dont need anyones forgiveness because I dont owe any other collector the realization of their toy dreams. Not to mention, that I dont have the power to stand in your way. The Hellcharger offering came across to me as insulting and greedy and its my own values I answer to when I dont participate or when I speak up about how I feel. If any person was able to influence another not to by this product, I see that only as a reflection that the offering was substandard according to what the market could support. That just economics, baby. My life will be identical whether anyone forgives me for that or not. You need to rage and blame? You do you, my fellow fan.

Its Hasbro who should feel your ire; locking a figure thats been requested forever behind an absurd paywall.

Oh calm down. Yeah it sucks but blaming everyone won't make anything better

Sadly it's not surprising that this failed, there was so many things against it. The Price, the lack of universal appeal, the poor choice of tier figures, the early bird figure, etc. Still I'll wait for Lizard faced Mephisto and Marvel Woman

Excuse us for having common sense. 350 for a car that I can get the equivalent of for 50 or less? Yeah, no. Mephisto will come

True. Despite what was said, I don't buy for a second that they can't release GQ or really, any figure they dang well choose. Especially since they barely deliver to brick and mortar in the first place, especially since they have Pulse, and especially now with windowless boxing? There's ust no excuse. Frankly, those exact figures not getting released is no loss, because we want the figures released in their classic forms. Refusing to make them now is just cutting off their nose to spite their face.

It is beyond all reason that you, I and anybody else, were completely free to buy the comics and statues these characters appeared in when we were kids, but now in the 21st century, are being told that they're too...whatever....to be sold in plastic action figure form, now that we're adults. I cannot even believe this is a discussion.

This is a good day. I hope the real lesson learned here for hasbo is that they need to seriously listen to their customer base.

Dwight said they can't release Goblin queen in anything more risque than the outfit she had for the Haslab. He didn't rule out one of her other outfits (more conservative), or another look for Mephisto for the future, but from what he told folks in interviews recently, it sounds like these exact figures are never coming out without the Haslab going forward.
