Marvel Legends What If? Animated Series Wave In The Works?!?

Marvel Legends What If? Animated Series Wave In The Works?!?


Jay Cochran - March 07, 2021
The folks over at Fwoosh look to have come up with some additional details for the rumored second wave of Marvel Legends Disney+ figures.

I know the first wave hasn't even yet been officially confirmed by Hasbro yet which as previously reported should include the following:

Disney+ – May-June 2021
F0167 – Assortment UPC: 5010993791385
Wave 1 – Unknown (BaF)
• F0246 – US Agent (Uruguay) – 5010993790814
• F0323 – Baron Zemo (Zimbabwe) – 5010993791125
• F0324 – Scarlett Witch (Sokovia) – 5010993791132
• F0325 – Winter Soldier (Wales) – 5010993791026
• F0326 – Vision (Vietnam) – 5010993790890
• F0327 – Loki (Latveria) – 5010993790982
• F0328 – Captain America (Brasil) – 5010993791101


Never-the-less details continue to surface for the second wave even as we wait for Hasbro to officially confirm the first wave. While I am pretty confident there is a second wave coming, I have not yet seen anything for myself to confirm the additional details Fwoosh is now reporting. They list the second Disney+ wave as follows:

Disney+ Wave 2 – August 2021
F0167 – Assortment UPC: 5010993791385
Wave 2 – Unknown (BaF)
• F0329 – “What If?” Figure 8 – 501099379724
• F0330 – “What If?” Figure 9 – 501099379729
• F0331 – “What If?” Figure 10 – 501099379727
• F0332 – “What If?” Figure 11 – 501099379725
• F0333 – “What If?” Figure 12 – 501099379726
• F0334 – “What If?” Figure 13 – 501099379728
• F1097 – “Loki” Figure 14 – 501099379723


So while they still don't have specific figures listed, they are indicating that 6 of the 7 figures in the wave will be based on the upcoming Disney+ What If? animated series. The seventh figure is being listed as something from the Loki series. No idea of what the Build-A-Figure for this wave will be based on.

There has yet to be a specific release date for the Disney+ What If? series announced, but at last reports it looked like it would be airing sometime this summer. Fwoosh has also changed their listing of that $50 Marvel Legends Deluxe figure #f2992 to indicate it will also be based on the What If? series. As I reported the other day, I have seen that one listed as "Hydra Stomper" which is likely just a code name. I don't know if Fwoosh has anything more on the deluxe figure or just making an assumption here being both the Deluxe figure and the Disney+ Wave 2 figures are slated for release around the same time in August.

If the Deluxe figure does in fact turn out to be something from the What If? series, then that gives credence to the speculation that it could be a figure based on the non-super soldier Steve Rogers piloted Mark I Iron Man Armor seen in the trailers for the show.



Based on the trailer we have seen for the What If? series we could probably come up with a number of guesses for the 6 regular figures in the Disney+ wave. Seems like the Super Soldier induced Peggy Carter seen in many of the promos for the show is very likely.



Zombie Captain America and T'Challa as Star-Lord seem like good bets to me as well



For now we will have to wait and see. I am hoping now that the WandaVision series is over, we could get a wave 1 reveal of Wanda as early as tomorrow, similar to how they revealed Vision this past Monday.

If you haven't seen it already, be sure to check out this first trailer released last December for the What If? animated series.

I understand that the amount of plastic used, plus added accessories, to a huge  figure to begin with, adds to the cost of the toy but the price is slowly eating up my wallet. So many toys, so little money.

Wish it could be another comic version of Odin or something along those lines!

It may be a safe bet for the "What if" BAF to be the Iron-Man Mk1 Steve pilots. And it would be great to have a removable helmet with little Steve's head.

The more I think about it the more its regretful that they aren't doing the comic-accurate Mandroid. Maybe sometime down the line, then. Which brings up the fact that Hasbro is coming out with these tv/movie/video game variants and there are still so many more comic book versions we haven't seen yet. Not to mention teams they haven't finished. I get it though, especially for these one-off one/two season shows, they wanna strike while the iron's hot. Makes sense.

Be great if for every wave like this one, we would get a heavy comic wave too. And just in case anyone from the Legends team is reading this....its a good time to plan for releasing a Marvel Monsters Box Set in time for Halloween!  Hint Hint

It really does feel like Hasbro is going heavy on the variants. There so many high demand comic figures of characters who've not been done or need major updates. I would really hope this new $50 figure was a mandroid as I would love to replace my original that I sold like a goob but I doubt it is. I like certain things from all the different Marvel incarnations such as the MCU but I really only collect out of my love for comics and toys and Legends being the perfect marriage of those hobbies. I also only collect main roster Avengers since those are the heroes I've always liked so it's looking less likely for me to get anything on my wishlist since I'm so niche.

I'm excited about the Peggy Carter super soldier and the skinny Steve Rogers with the Mark One IM. Those would be a must have for me from this wave. And of course can't wait to see the actual What if animated series too. Good news all around.

Hmmm... Captain America code name is Brasil instead of a C-country... could it be that there will be a Bucky Capt in the series? And Falcon Capt might be a deluxe release or BAF with huge wings and flight stand instead?

Just a wild speculation...

Not a huge fan of all the weirdo alternate characters they're putting all this money behind (Into the Spiderverse, Gamerverse, Etc.), but I suppose there's not much we can do to stop it anymore. That being said, this might be interesting. I certainly like the Peggy Carter Captain UK (I guess) idea so I'll reserve judgement on the wave for now. I'm just interested if, with all the delays, they're gonna be able to get this wave out this year.

I think Spider-verse made sense, particularly coming off of a year with a dearth of mcu figures.  Seems like they are popular enough, aside from peter b for some reason.  The gamerverse figures might have made sense if the game had been more well-received than it was (seemed like it was mostly met with 'meh' at least from what i've read), and i'm not sure the various spider-man game figures sold really well either.... guessing disney & hasbro saw the fortnite figures and said, hey we can do that for our games too!  although i guess now marvel will be making fortnite versions of marvel characters anyhow...

tbh i'd prefer more 616 characters that haven't already received figures than what-if versions, but some could be fun i guess. i'll try and reserve judgement until i see what they're offering.

A What IF wave could be fun, but it will of course depend on the source material especially has we have very little on the series
