Another Toy Fair
has wrapped and with that we have a ton of new Marvel Legends
figures on the way. As with every major show, we like to recap all the things we know are coming as well as a few we think we know are coming.
We will start off with the basic waves of Marvel Legends
figures we know are coming out later this year.
First up is the Black Widow wave
which has already started seeing a limited release. This one will include figures of Black Widow (Black Costume), Taskmaster, Yelena Belova
and Red Guardian
from the upcoming MCU movie. It will also contain comic book based figures of Crossbones, Winter Soldier, Spymaster
and the Crimson Dynamo Build-A-Figure
. If you havenít already, you can still pre-order it from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com
The next wave due out should be the Avengers video game
one, which will include game based figures of Captain America, Ms. Marvel
and Iron Man
as well as the Abomination Build-A-Figure
. The remaining figures are all comic book based, and they include Rage, Mach-1, Captain Mar-well
and The Leader
. You can pre-order these at our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com
. This wave is slated with an April release.
The X-Men: Age of Apocalypse wave
should be up next, and be out by May. This wave will based on the classic Marvel 90ís storyline and include figures of Weapon X, Nate Grey (X-Man), Dark Beast, Morph, Sunfire, Wild Child, Jean Grey
and the Sugar Man Build-A-Figure
. This wave is also available for pre-order from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com
The next basic wave we know for sure is coming this year from Hasbro is the X-Force
wave. This one includes figures of Sunspot, Warpath, Deadpool (Blue X-Men Outfit), Black Tom Cassidy
. The Build-A-Figure
for this wave will be Strong Guy
. There are likely two more figures slated to be released for this wave. While not officially confirmed by Hasbro yet, it looks like those will be figures of Shiklah
and another version of Deadpool
. We think this wave will be out in the May time frame.
There is also likely going to be a Venom
themed wave out in October, but we donít yet know what figures will be released in that. Itís possible the Venomized Mile Morales
figures Hasbro announced could be part of this wave.
A second Avengers video game wave
should be coming. This has not yet been confirmed by Hasbro, and we donít know for sure the figures slated for it.
We also expect to see at least one Eternals movie based wave
released, but again that is not confirmed by Hasbro, nor do we know any of the figures that will be slated for it.
Hasbro has confirmed a new wave of Spider-Man
figures that will be released this year, all to be packed on retro style 5Ē Toy Biz Spider-Man Animated Series like cardbacks
. The figures they have confirmed for this wave so far include Peter Parker, Gwen Stacy
with alternate Mary Jane
head and a newly sculpted Spider-Man
figure. Other figures rumored for this wave but not yet confirmed by Hasbro include Daredevil, Electro
and Green Goblin
Only one new Deluxe Rider series figure set
has been announced so far, and it features a new Punisher
figures on an all black motorcycle.
For single packed $30 Deluxe Marvel Legends
figure you can expect the following.
comic book based figure which is a Target Store exclusive
and is hitting shelves now.
Black Widow Movie Natasha Romanov in white outfit
. This figure features a flight stand and a number of different accessories. Look for it to be released soon and is available for pre-order at our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com
A comic book based War Machine
with alternate unmasked head, flight stand, two shoulder cannons, wrist cannon and a number of blast effects.
A new Apocalypse
figure from the Age of Apocalypse
storyline featuring two headsculpts.
Power Of X/House Of X Nimrod
which will also come with a classic Nimrod head. Hasbro has said this one is not a Build-A-Figure, but would not confirm how it will be released. Itís BAF scale, so if not a Build-A-Figure, we assume that means it will be a Deluxe. That is at least how we are listing this one for now.
For Fan Channel and store exclusive figures
, which has become a major part of the line, this is what we know.
First we have the new Stan Lee
figure which has started to see a limited release already. I donít know if technically this is a Fan Channel Exclusive, but since itís not associated with a regular wave and itís not a deluxe figure, that is where we are sticking it.
Amazon exclusive Wolverine Movie Hugh Jackman Logan
figure is available for pre-order on the Amazon website and slated with a September 1 release date.
Gamestop exclusive Gamerverse Avengers game Outback Hulk
which is currently only being offered in a bundle with the PS4 and X-Box versions of the game.
exclusive Hydra Soldier Army builder
Target exclusive Deadly Origins Black Widow in white outfit
. This figure is up for pre-order on Targetís website and listed with a March 29 release date.
Target exclusive Gamerverse Avengers Game Starboost Armor Iron Man
which is available for pre-order on the Target website and slated with an August 1 release date.
Target exclusive X-Men First Appearance Storm
with two headsculpts and lightning effect pieces. Itís unclear if this will be released as a single or in some other way. Perhaps as some type of multi-figure release. Storm will feature a new seamless design where the pins on the knees and elbows will be hidden.
Target exclusive Red Hulk
was already mentioned above in the Deluxe section and is hitting shelves now.
Walgreens exclusive Iron Man 2020 figure
. This figure went up for pre-order on the Walgreens website, but is now listed as unavailable.
Walmart exclusive Grey Suit Black Widow
which had been up for pre-order on the Walmart website, but is currently listed as being out of stock.
Walmart exclusive Venomized Captain America
Walmart exclusive Deadpool 2 Cable movie figure
with teddy bear and arsenal. It will be a single carded Walmart exclusive. Domino
will also be single carded, but not exclusive to Walmart.
That then brings us to the next batch of figures. Ones they announced but didnít really give us specific details on how or where they will be released.
So we know we are getting a Deadpool movie 2-pack with Deadpool and Negasonic Teenage Warhead
We are also getting an X-Men movie 2-pack with Professor X and Magneto
. The young versions of Charles and Magneto will feature alternate head sculpts based on their older counterparts. We assume these two packs will be available everywhere.
We are getting a regular movie Hugh Jackman Wolverine with leather coat
and movie Mystique
that comes with an alternate transforming arm. No idea how these two are getting released. These are being released in a sub-type line deal and there is no BAF.
We are getting a modern Legacy Rogue
figure which also will feature the new seamless figure design. This could also be part of that unknown X-Men wave.
We are getting an Old Man Hawkeye
figure which will be the one male figure we know of featuring the seamless figure design and an Old Man Logan
that will come with a baby Hulk
. This will be released as some kind of 2-pack.
Finally Hasbro teased that the Sentinel
will be getting the Haslab treatment
this year and details on that will be released before San Diego Comic Con in June.
There are additional figures that are rumored to be coming that are likely true, but we will leave off this list until we can get better confirmations on them. Even still you can tell that itís going to be another big year for Marvel Legends. Is your wallet ready????
