My Top Five Favorite Marvel Legends For 2020

My Top Five Favorite Marvel Legends For 2020


Jay Cochran - December 31, 2020
Keeping in mind that I have not personally gotten my hands on every single Marvel Legends figure Hasbro released in 2020 (and Hasbro released a lot), I still wanted to compile a list of my top 5 favorites figures. This of course is based on the ones I actually own, meaning there could be cooler figures out there, I just haven't gotten them yet. For instance the Age Of Apocalypse Sugar Man build-a-figure looks really nice, but because I wasn't personally interested in the regular figures in that wave I don't have that one to be able to say for sure.

Another thing that factors into my list is character preference. There could be a really well made figure out there, but if its not of a character I am personally interested in, I probably didn't get it.

Ok so now that we have gotten that clarification out of the way, here is my list of Top 5 favorite Marvel Legends for 2020.

5. Armored Daredevil

While not a bad figure in anyway, this one makes the list because I have always loved the Armored Daredevil costume, and was very happy to see Hasbro make a figure of it this year. If I wasn't such a fan of the costume itself, this one probably would not have made my Top 5. Check out my original review for the figure here.




4. Movie Deadpool

This is the only X-Men/Deadpool movie figure I ended up getting this year. I think Hasbro did a nice job with Deadpool, but it was annoying having to buy it in a 2-pack with Negasonic Teenage Warhead. Not only was Warhead a character I wasn't terribly interested in getting a figure of, I also didn't think it was a well made figure. Still like many, I had been hoping for a movie Deadpool figure for some time and glad to finally add it to my collection. Check out this original review of the set by ShartimusPrime.




3. Strong Guy

Possibly my favorite Build-A-Figure for the year, this one put us one step closer to completing the 90's X-Factor team. I loved the headsculpt on this one and the size works nicely with the other X-Factor team members. The Peter David written X-Factor comics from the 90's are some of my favorite reads and was very happy to add this one to my collection. Check out this original review of the figure by erivera94.




2. Dr. Doom


The wave with this figure technically started hitting shelves in late 2019, but officially I think it's considered a 2020 wave. I know I personally didn't get my hands on it until 2020. Dr. Doom is one of my favorite villains and I think Hasbro did a great job giving us an updated figure of him with this one. I love things like the added jets on the back, though it would have been nice if they had included jet blast effect pieces. Of course you can use ones from other figures like the Walmart Black Widow if you have it.

Hasbro did a second Doom this year for their Retro Fantastic Four line, but I didn't get that one, mainly cause I was pretty satisfied with this first figure. Check out this original review of the figure by ShartimusPrime.




1. Deluxe War Machine


My favorite Marvel Legends figure of the year I would say is the new Deluxe War Machine. An updated comic book based War Machine was long overdue, but I think Hasbro really delivered on this one. With all the added weapon and weapon effect accessory pieces along with a very nicely sculpted alternate unmasked head of Jim Rhodes, I have had a lot of fun displaying and posing this one. Check out my original review of this figure here.




So there you have it, my Top 5 favorite Marvel Legends for 2020. Let me know what your favorites where in the COMMENTS SECTION below.

Red Guardian and Yelena Belova are definitely on that list. I imagine silver centurion Iron Man is on there for a lot of people because of the disappointing neck. Maybe the terribly-painted jacketed Jackman Wolverine or some of the gamerverse Avengers? There really weren't a lot of outright duds last year.

I'd have to agree with you, and especially the last statement, there weren't a lot of outright duds. I think the Legends team should be proud of that, and strive to do even better.

So many Marvel Legends figures to buy and yet so little money to spend. I may not have all my 2020 faves but the reviews fill the spots that have left holes in my collection. But definitely, Doctor Doom, Deadpool 2pack, Kang, War Machine and Punisher are up there in my top figures! (Heck, the last three I still need to hint this 2021. )

I haven't gotten in on this discussion yet so thought I'd drop mine in:

1:Falcon. I've waited so long for a new Falc. Really hoping we get a classic of him on this buck.

2:Crossbones. One of my favorite villains. So glad to have him on my shelf finally.

3: Winter Soldier. By the time I started collecting I couldn't afford the original release but this one is so good I don't mind.

4: Kang. One of my favorite Avengers villains and Hasbro killed it!

5: War Machine. Wow. What a beautiful piece. And those accessories and effects are crazy!
