2008 NYCC: Marvel Legends
: Jay Cochran on 2008-04-18
James Bernet reports in live from the 2008 New York Comic with the following infomation.
Marvel Legends is cancelled?
Of course not.
The Nemesis wave has been pushed back to December though and it is now a Walmart exclusive
The Red Hulk/Spiral/Adam Warlock/Union Jack/Silver Savage/Black Spider-Man/Wolverine Black wave is coming in September and will be a Target exclusive.
There will be 8 two-packs, all coming this Fall. 3 have not been revealed. Most of the two packs will come with interchangeable heads and hands.Several will also have variants. Larger box sets aren't practical at this time given the price points/cost of plastic/shelf space needed.
The revealed two packs are - Elektra/Ronin; Ultimate Classic Cap/Ultimate Fury; SHIELD Agent/Red Hand Ninja; Forge/Wolverine; Skrull/Kree
The articulation shown, including double jointed elbows, will match the actual released figures, unlike the Hydra goon that in the final release had a limited range of motion ball jointed elbow
The 2 upcoming Hulk/Fing Fang Foom waves will be widely distributed. The first wave is due in August with the second wave hitting shortly after in Septmeber/October.
The reason for the delay in waves we are currently experiencing is that Hasbro is still in a learning process with Marvel Legends. Due to some inventory overages, a reassesment of their marketing and distribution plan was necessary.
Also the rumors of Jesse Falcon and crew jumping ship to Hasbro aren't true. Jesse and Marvel continues to work closely with Hasbro on figure selection and design, including colors and articulation questions, but does not work for Hasbro.
