Updated Rumor Report - Ghost Rider Retro Cardback Figure?!?

Updated Rumor Report - Ghost Rider Retro Cardback Figure?!?


Jay Cochran - May 28, 2022
Back in February we first reported to you details for Hasbro's 20th Anniversary Marvel Legends subline coming this year which would include the initial 4 Toy Biz tribute package figures of Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk and Toad along with 8 additional figures that would have regular or more normal retro cardback type packaging.



While so far my track record with that report has been pretty good, I did admittedly get one of those wrong. Initially I did not have Rhino listed which ended up being one of the 8 figures. Firelord, Sentinel and War Machine however have now all been confirmed and we have seen hints of a lab coat which I believe will go with the Beast figure. We still await confirmation of the Scorpion figure which should be on a Spider-Man Retro Cardback and Apocalypse. Both Beast and Apocalypse I believe will be on X-Men Retro Cardbacks.

The final figure I originally told you would be part of the 8 was a second Captain America figure, and the reason I bring you this report is because I am now seeing indications that was incorrect. The figure I thought was going to be a second Captain America is now actually looking to be a new Ghost Rider figure. I can't tell you specifically what version of Ghost Rider but it does appear to have a normal figure price which means no motorcycle or car. I also believe this figure will come on a Toy Biz Ghost Rider Retro Cardback since all the other figures in this subline seem to be on retro cardback. So this is how the assortment appears to break down.

F3475: Yellow 5 - Rhino
F3444: Yellow 6 - Firelord
F3445: Yellow 7 - Sentinel
F3446: Yellow 8 - Apocalypse
F3447: Yellow 9 - Beast
F3448: Yellow 10 - War Machine
F3449: Yellow 11 - Scorpion
F3450: Yellow 12 - Ghost Rider


War Machine was the first figure from Hasbro to be featured on an Iron Man Retro Cardback but I don't think it will be the last. The same goes for Ghost Rider. Of course until Hasbro confirms all of this we will treat this as RUMOR.

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
