Marvel Legends Quasar First In-Hand Images

Marvel Legends Quasar First In-Hand Images


Jay Cochran - May 15, 2021
Marvel's own Ryan Penagos has posted our first in-hand image for the upcoming Marvel Legends Quasar figure. The figure here in the US will be released as a Walgreens exclusive and in Canada at EBGames. This particular figure along with the NOVA and Fallen Silver Surfer figures I believe were sent to him directly by Hasbro, so Quasar is not yet hitting shelves. NOVA has been out in Canada but not yet here in the US.

From the looks of things on the shelves and online ML is clearly not a first concern for Walgreens. Its disheartening because It used to be one of my favorite haunts to search on myrare days off. I get it, its a different world these days and there's much more pressing issues, such as the massively more profitable pharmaceutical market. Will it ever be the same again, I sincerely don't think so. I hope to just not miss out on what's looking to be the last of ML's arrangement with WG and then maybe it will turn into online etailer Fan Channel distribution like they did with the Cuckoo's. I really think that will be better for fan's and sales altogether.

In Walgreens very minor defense, we have been in a pandemic for a year, and they're a pharmacy so they've had, y'know, things other than toys on their mind lately. Okay, that's all for the defense. It's really crappy that they haven't been receiving or stocking any of their exclusives this year.

If they end up severing their exclusive contracts with Hasbro... I mean, I can understand it. I've been to Walgreens that have nine Invisible Womans or eight Emma Frosts a year after they come out and they simply cannot sell them. I don't know if they've been burned by over-ordering or bad markets or what, but it doesn't seem like the ideal venue to sell these action figures.

On yet another hand, as I've said before, I wish Walgreens would keep their exclusive deal and just do a better job of honoring it, because I can be inside a Walgreens in two minutes if I want to. It's super convenient for me, whereas Target is a #$## to get to.

But that's why 90-95% of my Legends acquisitions are online, so... I hope the figures are made available soon, but like I told someone else, I'm pretty sure I'll end up buying Nova and Quasar from BBTS in 2023.

Yeah I don't live in the US (sorta obvious by now I guess), but from what I've seen as of recent, it does seem odd that they would continue partnering with Hasbro to sell exclusives when they seem to neglect even stocking them, I have had no problem here in Canada getting the Walgreens exclusives at EB (where they are exclusives here), so it seems to be that there is an issue with the product being ordered, potentially do to mangers not making new orders because of the slow sales of figures still sitting on the pegs, I think that it may be the end for Walgreen's it seems they don't really have the heart to handle these exclusives, and they might be better off in other hands.

Like I've said before though, once stores open and I can get access I'd be happy to supply people with figures like Nova and such if I can get them, my local store right before it closed had 2 still, they should once it re-opens, it might cost a few bucks more for me to send them (or I'm always down for a good trade), but I'm always happy to hook up folks in the community if I can, I'm always willing to.

I've heard rumors the exclusives are coming to an end at Walgreens but I'm pumped to get Nova and Quasar! If it ends I won't mind as the trouble to secure new figures is a pain.

No Fallen Surfer, Nova or Quasar in stores or on their site. Nova supposedly landed in Canada back in April. By now there should be some showing in the states. Has Walgreens just gotten out of the Legends biz?

I'm glad for you fans of the classic New Warriors members & the fact that you just need Namorita & Speedball to complete the core members of the team. I just never could get into the Teen Titans light. Though I do want to see the Bengal made as he is not only a Night Thrasher enemy, but DD's as well. The new Spidey buck is ideal for him or Sunfire buck.
