Rumor Report: It's The 20th Anniversary Of Marvel Legends, What Can We Expect To See? UPDATE

Rumor Report: It's The 20th Anniversary Of Marvel Legends, What Can We Expect To See? UPDATE


Jay Cochran - February 13, 2022
UPDATE: 2 Looks like prices on Captain America, War Machine, and Scorpion have been adjusted to reflect the higher 2022 MSRP for a regular Marvel Legends figure of $24.99.


UPDATE: Yesterday I told you about what we can likely expect from Hasbro for their Marvel Legends 20th Anniversary plans this year, but after doing some more checking I discovered I got confused on some of the pricing on these. Sorry between the overall price increases coming to the line this year and being these involve things like higher priced sub-line figures, larger deluxe figures and so fourth its a little confusing. So keep in mind there is some level of speculation here but as best I can tell this is how its all going to break down.

The initial 4 figures we know 100% are coming from Hasbro this year are the Captain America, Classic Iron Man, Hulk and Toad. These are in the Toy Biz tribute packaging with diorama pieces and priced higher than your standard Marvel Legends figures. Hulk being a larger figure is priced even higher than Cap, Iron Man and Toad.

Now the remaining 8 figures I told you about yesterday which have NOT been officially confirmed by Hasbro still stands based on the info I have seen as follows:

- Captain America (Another One)
- War Machine
- Scorpion
- Firelord
- Sentinel
- Blue Beast
- Apocalypse
- Unknown Spider-Man Item


So after doing some additional checking, from what I can tell the Blue Beast is being priced at the same price as the initial Cap, Iron Man and Toad figures. So that higher sub-line price but as a regular sized figure as opposed to a larger one like Hulk. This makes me think Beast will come in that Toy Biz tribute packaging or maybe regular packaging but have a diorama piece like the initial four.

Captain America V2, War Machine and Scorpion appear to be priced at the current standard size regular Marvel Legends price of $23 each as opposed to the higher sub-line price. This makes me think these will all be regular sized figures in basic packaging as opposed to the Toy Biz tribute packaging. Possibly with an added 20th Anniversary logo added to the package. They also likely would not have the added diorama pieces like with the initial 4. That's all speculation on my part, but again based on the prices I have seen, that is my best guess.

Firelord and Sentinel are priced at the new 2022 standard figure size regular release price of $24.99 each. That leads me to believe they will be standard sized figures coming in fairly standard like packaging later in the year after the general price hikes goes into effect.

Apocalypse looks like will be priced as a larger figure but as a regular release. so again in regular like packaging as opposed to Toy Biz tribute packaging.

The final Spider-Man item which still remains the biggest mystery looks like will be priced around $35-$39 price range. So cheaper than the $50 price I quoted yesterday. This price might fit a 2-Pack with say a larger and smaller figure. Perhaps this will be the Peni Parker SP//DR 2 pack I originally thought was going to be part of the Spider-Man 60th Anniversary line. That is purely a guess on my part but would fit the info I have available at this time.

So there you have it, sorry for the confusion and of course for good reason, until Hasbro officially confirms these we will treat these as RUMOR.


Last year Hasbro officially announced a new Marvel Legends sub-line that would be celebrating Marvel Legends turning 20 years old this year. Hasbro has already officially announced the first 4 figures in this sub-line as being Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk and Toad, the first 3 of which you can purchase at our sponsors Entertainment Earth and BigBadToyStore.com.

Now while Hasbro has only confirmed the first four figures and we still await images for Toad, I can tell you there should be at least 8 more figures being released in this sub-line throughout 2022.

Credit to Youtuber rektangular to be the first to come across info on a number of these additional 8 figures, but now I have additional info I have seen for myself to share with you on them. Of course until Hasbro officially confirms these we will treat them as RUMOR.

So based on the info I have seen the names of the remaining 8 figures are as follows:

- Captain America (Another One)
- War Machine
- Scorpion
- Firelord
- Sentinel
- Blue Beast
- Apocalypse
- Unknown Spider-Man Item


Now besides the names, it appears War Machine, Scorpion and Captain America (V2) will have the same MSRP price point as the first Captain America and Classic Iron Man figures that are starting to see release now. The prices seemingly go up a little for Sentinel and Firelord which I think is reflecting the overall price increases going into effect on the line this year.

The MSRP for Beast and Apocalypse are in line with the Hulk figure and likely because of their increased size making them more deluxe like.

I have no idea how the second Captain America will differ from the first. It could be another version of Steve Rogers or perhaps it will be something like an updated Bucky Cap.

I have no idea how Beast, Scoripion and Apocalypse will differ from the previous versions we have recently gotten in the line.

Firelord which is something the Hasbro brand team hinted at last year during the Galactus Haslab campaign should be a completely new figure like Toad. When I say completely new I mean figures we have never gotten before from Hasbro.

Since War Machine is reflecting a price point of a normal size figure and not a deluxe one like the last War Machine we got in the line, I am speculating this might be mainly a repaint of the Modular Iron Man figure that was released in the last Iron Man wave.

Sentinel also shares the price point of a normal size figure, so that one is a complete mystery to me on what it could be based on. It's definitely NOT a re-issue of the Haslab Sentinel, and while I have seen speculation perhaps its a Marvel vs Capcom version, I would think that would put the figure more in that Deluxe price range like Hulk, Beast and Apocalypse. So we will have to wait and see what exactly that is going to be.

The final item which indications are that it is Spider-Man related and perhaps even more specifically tied to the "Into The Spider-Verse" movie is the biggest unknown for me. All I can really tell you is it seems to share a price point with the Mega Deluxe figures, which is around $50. Now as I have previously reported, I have seen indications we will be getting a Into The Spider-Verse Peni Parker and SP//DR 2 pack which could fit that price point. However based on the info I have seen previously that was something being released under the Spider-Man 60th Anniversary line, not the Marvel Legends 20th Anniversary one. The only other possible Into The Spider-Verse related character I could think of that would possibly fit the $50 price point is a Kingpin figure. I can't say for sure it will be related to Into The Spider-Verse, so a lot of unknowns on this figure and at this point I would treat with the most grain of salt.

Of course as I mentioned before, until Hasbro officially confirms any of these, we will treat them all as RUMOR for now. Images below are for reference only.

I think movie line for that Nick Cage movie.

Either way Mephisto is just red he has no horns and tail, Red guy from Cow and Chicken and Hellboy look more like the devil than Mephisto. I really hope they go with a reworked Knull body and not a standard ML body.

Mephisto is way overdue. I remember when people on the forum would ask for him and then get smacked with "they'll never make him, he's the devil, Disney/China/Hasbro/church lady won't allow it!!" but at the same time Hasbro was cranking out the likes of Hob Goblin, Red Goblin, Black Heart, Ghost Rider, etc. Then Surtur came out which thankfully silenced that unfounded viewpoint. Only thing now is, they might put him on the Pizza Spidey mold! lol

For sure, it would be really cool but I also want blister cards that fit with existing retro lines too so I hope they make BlackHeart, Vengeance, Blaze human form and of course Mephisto.

We should get both, some figures and the bike set, just like the actual line

They could easily do it, given they have the Ultimate Riders. Also imagine how cool it would be to see something like this on the shelves.

The idea of a new Ghost Rider certainly gets the interest up, but I'm less enthused about this news. Because even if it happens, the idea winds up being a huge disappointment compared to the reality.

Hasbro isn't even hiding this anymore- they are deliberately cranking out substandard (or questionable) versions of figures instead of the correct, definitive one, so they make a "better" (and even more expensive) version of the figure sometime later. I can only imagine how much they're gonna want to charge for a new Ghost Rider and motorcyle set....they will laugh at the $50.00 mark. Wouldn't surprise me if they're gonna want double this time around.

I would absolutely love retro style packaging for Ghost Rider but the thing is it would limit the possibility of Motorcycle unless they replicate figure and cycle box fro legends scale.

So if Hasbro is just going to repaint Beast, let's hope at least, if they aren't going to scale him down that it's on the more Perez looking headsculpt that came on the gray version. Be a nice way to pay a small tribute to George.

While I'd rather see a Ketch version of Ghost Rider ( I was lucky to get both versions of Blaze ) I really need. REYES version for my Avengers collection. It kinda makes more sense that it be Reyes as in the Avengers comics he isn't ALWAYS in his car. Ketch wouldn't look right on Blaze's bike

I was on the fence with the WarMachine repaint. Less accessories, no Rhodey head.. but dang if those colors don't look sharp.

Firelord is one I've decided to buy. To me, another classic character we may not get another shot at.

Thankfully the rest are mostly passes. This new price point is killing me. I'm actually dreading the next MCU anniversary sets ( whenever they inevitably get announced) those suckers are going to be ridiculously expensive
