Marvel Legends Black Widow Movie Wave Looks To Be On The Near Horizon

Marvel Legends Black Widow Movie Wave Looks To Be On The Near Horizon


Jay Cochran - September 10, 2019
While it shouldn't really come as a surprise to anyone being there is a movie coming in May 2020, it looks like Hasbro will be doing at least one dedicated Black Widow themed wave next year for Marvel Legends. Shown below via social media comes a screenshot from the Walgreens computers showing a listing of the wave. Specific characters are not listed but we assume this will be a mixture of comic and movie based characters. It's possible we might find out more about these next month during New York Comic Con, but if not then we will probably see them on display at Toy Fair in February. Also notice the Stepford Cuckoos listing which we told you about last month continues to be listed.

Which Black Widow themed characters do you want to see make this wave, let us know in the COMMENTS SECTION.

ok I can see where my post has room for interpretation. Thank you Mako for understanding the spirit in which my original post was meant. You said it better than I did to express my point without taking every word so literally

my point that brick and mortar stores are late to the game and hence can determine which figures pegwarm

I understand "pegwarming" as "left behind", in that case e-tailers also "pegwarm". So "finally" getting something with the only context of you pulling the trigger on Pulse instead of waiting... when it had just been a couple of weeks when they started rolling out... doesn't really bring your point across.

I agreeretailers get the figures out later than e-tailers most of the timeand that's become problematic for the stores since a lot of the product they're trying to sell has been bought elsewhere before, therefore pegwarming.

I also agree with the feeling of "finally" getting a figure with months between the announcement and my purchase, and can also understand why someone would chuckle at the thought from interpreting it as searching for a long time when it's only been available for few weeks or months worldwide. A bit of a "oh my sweet summer child, what do you know of the cold?" kind of feeling.

Yeah I totally agree. Obviously it somewhat depends on how much effort youve put into hunting, as Mako said, but I always chuckle when someone talks about finally finding a figure from a wave that hasnt even hit shelves in a lot of places hey, I glad the collector found the figure they wanted but it comes across as a little melodramatic. No harm done though

also agree that x-force and retro didnt really seem to hit stores until August, altho I think GameStop might have gotten some of them in a bit earlier

Saying that its melodramatic to finally acquire a figure is a bit of a nit pick. Instead of understanding my point that brick and mortar stores are late to the game and hence can determine which figures pegwarm youfocus on a arbitrary time frame of release to purchase.

My choice of using the word finally was more in the vein that I was looking forward to certain figures since the announcement, not necessarily from when they started popping up in stores. So when I finally bought the figure I was hoping to get since it was announced it had indeed been months.

Well, I finally acquired the SDCC 2018 exclusive Red Skull... does that qualify for finally??

I've noticed a trend among collectors to inflate time spans in this manner before. You see folks talking about "finally" getting a figure and it's only been hitting actual retail shelves for a couple of weeks, if that. I think the cycle of reveal/preorder/actually hitting shelves messes with our heads and makes us feel like stuff has been out longer than it really has or something.

Not trying to come down on you, but have the X-Force and Retro waves actually been hitting for "months?" Pretty sure they only started really hitting shelves in August. There might have been a few early outliers (Gamestop) in July but I'm pretty certain it was no earlier than that.

I "finally" ate lunch yesterday. Granted it was only a little less than 2 hours late, but I wasn't any less hungry.

The moral? "Finally" is relative to A. How much effort you put into finding something, and B. How badly you want it. Time-frame is not an issue.

I'm thinking in this accelerated time frame when we're getting so much product (finally), I think it just seems like things have been on the shelves for months.

It's so sad that we can call what we've had the last several weeks as an "accelerated time-frame."

I still miss the 90s when ToyBiz was pumping out so much merch that literally two weeks after the release of any given figure it would be clearanced for as much as 50% off just to make room for the new stuff coming in.

I'm thinking in this accelerated time frame when we're getting so much product (finally), I think it just seems like things have been on the shelves for months. When the X-Factor wave came out in my area I immediately hunted them down and then eventually a 2nd set as well, but having gotten everything I needed so soon after release it does seem like they've been on the pegs for an extended amount of time. There are Cannonball and Boom Boom figuresjust hangingout as far as the eye can see.And when you're getting excited about the next release it makes that time between seem even longer.

And timing can determine which pegwarms as well. a lot of big box stores are late to the party and by the time the get on shelves at Meijer, Target or Walmart, most collectors had lost patience and grabbed the figures they wanted online. I know I have gotten antsy and pulled the trigger because I was tired of seeing empty pegs. Then weeks after Ive had my figures I check these stores and they had finally arrived only for me to leave them as they lie (not made of money you know). This must be fairly common as figures I would expect to fly from the shelf hang for weeks. A good example are both recent retro XMen and XForce waves. Only saw the likes of Wolverine, Boom Boom, etc months after people were posting about finding them in the wild. So I pulled the trigger on Mr. Sinister, Nightcrawler, and Guardian from Pulse. Then today I walk into a local Meijers and all 3 are on the pegs. Now Im sure all three will be gone in no time but my impatience will prove to be someones very good day. Bet if these box stores could find a way to get these sooner many of the more common figures would be snatched up quickly

Excellent point.

Which brings up another good point. A lot of what peg-warms is regional. What flies off the pegs in one area might warm the pegs in another.
