pointed out that Ryan Ting
made a comment somewhere on social media that Team and Vs Cards also count for his clue which means even more possibilities. There is a link in the article below so you can see all the cards and guess to your hearts content, but if you take anything away from this article, it's that Speedball
is very likely coming next year to the line. For the others your guess is as good as mine.
Yesterday during Hasbro's Marvel Legends live-stream
the guys gave us a clue for at least two Marvel Legends
figures they plan to release sometime in 2022. The clue they gave stated the following:
There will be at least two characters who have never appeared in Toy Biz or Hasbro Legends 6 inch line who were also featured in Marvel Universe Series 2 (1991) card set.
on social media went on to clarify that MCU based figures do not count.
Below we have gathered the cards of the 7 characters that have never had a comic book based 6" Marvel Legends figure done from either Hasbro or Toy Biz.
Note we are assuming costume variations don't count. For instance there is a card for Rachel Summers in her red spiked outfit that we have never gotten a figure for, but Hasbro has done a comic version of Rachel Summers before. Therefore we aren't counting here for this list though we are pretty sure Hasbro at some point will get around to doing that one so we can round out our Excalibur team.
Also note there Are Marvel team cards in the 1991 set which technically show characters that haven't been done in the Marvel Legends like Namorita who is seen on the New Warriors card. Since she isn't specifically mentioned by name and dones't have her own individual card in the set we aren't counting her here, though again we assume eventually we will get a figure of her to round out our New Warriors team.
So who are the six characters that make the cut, well they are Speedball, Sleepwalker, Nebula, Saracen, Deathwatch, Blackout, Baron Mordo
. If you want to see all the cards featured in the 1991 set you can check them out here
One other possible additions is Mephisto
which is featured on a Vs card going up against Silver Surfer
. Since that is an individual card I am only going to list them a possible but less likely candidates.
So right off the bat I can tell you Speedball
is very likely to be one of the figures Hasbro
was teasing. I know this because I have seen info that suggests he will be part of that Avengers Comic Wave
I told you about a few weeks ago that will also have USAgent
As for the second figure, and remember there could be more than 2, I don't know. I have not seen any info at this time suggesting any of the other 7 characters are getting the Marvel Legends treatment next year. If I had a guess, Sleepwalker, Baron Mordo
or a comic book based Nebula
seem like the most likely choices, but Hasbro
does like their obscure characters.
Which character out of these choices do you most want to see get a Marvel Legends figure next year?
