Hasbro's 2020 Marvel Legends Fan Poll Vote Results For Silk, Elektra And Sif Delayed Until The Fall

Hasbro's 2020 Marvel Legends Fan Poll Vote Results For Silk, Elektra And Sif Delayed Until The Fall


Jay Cochran - July 25, 2020
Back in February Hasbro launched a Fan-Poll vote for Marvel Legends where they asked folks to choose which figure they wanted to see made for the line. The three choices people could vote on included new versions of Lady Sif with enchanted sword, Silk who would come with two headsculpts multiple hands and a web effect piece, and Elektra in white that would come with katana and daggers.

The winner of the fan poll was said to be revealed at Comic-Con this year and the actual figure was to be released as one of the con exclusives. Well obviously things changed and that didn't happen since Comic-Con itself didn't happen.

Today Hasbro announced that the results and presumably the figure itself would now be made available sometime this Fall. Since all the other Hasbro SDCC exclusives that were set to be released this year appear to be going up for sale on the HasbroPulse website in September, we have a feeling that is when we will see this figure made available as well. Hasbro might also be waiting to see if any of the Fall conventions might still happen this year, though we wouldn't hold our breath on that.

From all the discussions I have seen online, Silk seemed like the fan favorite, but only time will tell on who actually won. While the official Fan-Vote is over, feel free to share your thoughts below on who you want to win.

If I had to do a poll of 3 female figures, I'd have gone with Tigra, Mantis, Moondragon, Misty Knight, original Valkryie, and Invisible Woman (translucent) and choose from those 6. I didn't see Hasbro's original poll so I have no idea if any of these characters were in it, but if so, its a shame they didn't go with them.

 

I definitely want a redone Tigra. She's a visually cool character from both the Avengers and Defenders. I thought the one we got was pretty stiff, which was disappointing since she's so agile. I really wanted that Mantis figure from Guardians but unfortunately she was the BAF and I wasn't interested in any of the characters from the wave. I've bought a lot of FF figures since the start of Marvel Legends but am not really happy with any of them. I'm assuming when Marvel does their FF movie in a few years, Hasbro will give me a definitive set of the classic team. Maybe assume is too strong a word. I'm hopefully. Hasbro is doing great lately.

You can still find Misty Knight on shelves here in Canada for full price.

Of those, all would require new/updated molds except Invisible Woman. Yes, Misty was done before but this time I'd put her in a short sleeve black turtle neck, that would show her bionic arm instead of just the fist. I'd probably put Moondragon and Valkyrie on bigger molds like the gray shehulk. Definitely would give Mantis a more rounded, robust buck to go with.

Hasbro has been using the same body mold for females for too long; they need to branch out and this line up gives them something to work with.

I would have gone with Nebula, Nova, classic Valkyrie and Tigra. But i like your list too.

They all are REpaints. Every character has already seen release. I would have preferred seeing totally new characters.

I never saw Angela as pegwarming and I felt she sold like crazy when she first came out. I never saw her much on pegs and even during that time, people were clamoring for her. Definitely still see Songbird on the pegs. 

Its kind of jarring with the selection they give us. They give us Silk, who sold like crazy and is hard to find and give her a crapton more accessories. Then in comparison we get Sif who was only in that boxset but gives her just a new cape and coloring.. and then Elektra who is just white repaint. Its weird to compare and say we want this one over one that has alot more value for your money. The only one Id want is Silk even tho I already have her from the venom wave.

Just to help put Angela into context, she beat, Darkhawk, Mysterio and Symbiote Spider-man

 Yeah, all new characters would be ideal but it appears the plan is to just add new paint and little in the way of accessories.

i dont normally pay these promos much attention but are the offerings normally just repaints? Doesnt sound like it, if the above mentioned characters (Songbird, Angela, Citizen V, White Rabit) were choices. Wonder why they went to cheap route for this promo?

In my area I see all the above on pegs from time to timeso I cant say anyone of them were hot sellers. I own all of them, so even if they didnt move quickly, they were easy to find

I'm meh on all three choices. Lets face it, an Elektra re-paint is all but inevitable for this line so no need for any fan "poll". Sif, is another re-paint, and the fur-mantle cape is great, but unless theyre going to go with soft goods there, its not a big sell for me. If they did that would be my vote.

Now both of these even being re-paints are good, and a nice edition to anyone's collection especially if you missed their original figures first time round. There seem to be a lot of votes for Silk but this one is the hard pass for me. Just cant care about the character. "Oh didn't you know? Years ago when Peter was bitten by the radioactive spider, another kid was at the same exhibition and she ALSO got bitten and ALSO got spider-powers! Gee!" As far as the look for the figure goes, I think its an improvement over the one released with the Venom BAF.

So overall I would've preferred some other choices. Then again, Hasbro's got a LOT of characters in the Marvel Universe to explore. Cheers!

Songbird was the 2016 fan choice winner, I wonder how the people she beat; Typhoid Mary, Citizen V and White Rabbit fared

FWIW my local WM still has a couple of Songbirds on the pegs (currently at $11).  I haven't seen any of the others in awhile so i think Songbird wins the pegwarming prize.  

That said, i think Silk will sell OK
