Hasbro has released the first official image for their upcoming Marvel Legends 12" Super Adaptoid figure which as we told you last week will be going up for pre-order this coming Thursday (4/20) at 1pm ET at places like our sponsors BigBadToyStore.com and Entertainment Earth.

Also in this image is the second version of Bucky as Captain America Hasbro will be doing for the Marvel Legends line. This one will be released later this Summer as a Walmart exclusive.

We can only hope my friend. Personally I plan on doing my part to initiate this by saving my money. I know it's okay to a lot of people and as

From the reactions here and across much of the community, collectors wanted a classic Adaptoid, this isn't it. Bottom line, inferior and unwanted versions, which is a low bar, aren't justifying the price they want for this.

But believe it or not, I'm actually optimistic about this. I think there's enough pushback to convince the team to do this correctly down the line. If they were to offer a classic correct version for Xmas or next year, I think a majority of collectors would absolutely jump on it. OR Marvel Select might take a swing, and frankly I think they'd do a great job just like they did with Titanium Man. If they did, it wouldn't cost $70.00 (T Man is going for $26.00 over at Amazon). At the very least hasbo knows there's an interest there and lots of money to be made!

Exactly. The Saga of the Super-Acraptoyd (shout out to @super-chillin) continues. But unlike a number of posters here, I actually think this one stands a chance of being re-done down the line, this time accurately. Especially if collectors let this one go to the clearance bin. That may seem counter intuitive, but its possible they could see that their little cash grab trick didn't go as well as they thought, BUT they can see there's a great desire for this figure (if correctly done). In which case, they redeem themselves (not that they care much about that), AND also make a boat load of $ (something they DO care about).

Or...I'm just totally wrong.

Time will tell.

It seems like Hasbro isn't the only one who used this design. This is Heroclix's version of the character.

It'll be rereleased with minimal updates in a 2 pack with Mephisto

As my grandpa use to say,"I'm not mad... I'm just disappointed in you" Hasbro! Which is always way worse. I really expected a price point much more in line with the 12" MCU Surtur from the other year. That was not only a brand new sculpt, but I'm sure a fair amount of R&D went into the translucent orange covered in spot black paint app to get it looking as good as it did. This is a reused 12" Cap buck with and enlarged shield and Thor hammer, along with new gloves, boots and head. Not exactly the pricey creative/production process I would have imagined a $70.00 figure would require. Sure I know there has been rampant inflation over the last year, but that still doesn't account for this price. And let's be clear, thats the MSRP for the figure here in the USA. Then add state taxes and shipping charges and guess what kind of cost you're looking at... or much worse, our collecting friends up in the Great White North and overseas will be looking at $100.00 plus for this figure. I always try to see the Hasbro, corporate money making machine side of things, but it really feels like somewhere along the line on this figure, someone lost the plot.

Yeah, just, wow! Feels like a smaller, marketing cash grab version of the Hell Charger to me. Way more than it should be and doesn't have the value I hoped for with that lame buck reuse and no wings. Never thought I would say this, but I am not purchasing the Super Adaptoid.

Yeah exactly. The Hell Charger was my first idea when I saw the price. I don't get the worth Hasbro placed on this offering. It feels expensive for expensive sake

Let's be clear: if a customizer had done this, they not only would have done a better over all job, they would've included the wings, probably the bow. In comparison, the multi billion dollar international toy company can only do this?? Given the overwhelming resources, funding and expertise at their disposal, there's no viable excuse for hasblo turning in this kind of product, and then charging such an outlandish price.
