Hasbro has sent us some new images for upcoming Marvel Legends store exclusive 2-packs, most of which are Avengers: Infinity War related, but before we get to that let me remind you about the #HeroActs challenge taking place on social media this week which we first told you about the other day. This is where stars of the MCU movies have teamed up to help raise funds and awareness for charities that support children and families impacted by serious illness.
Hasbro today has announced that they will donate $1 million USD worth of cash and product to Give Kids The World, which fulfills the wishes of children with life threatening illnesses and their families by providing them with an unforgettable visit to their village in Central Florida, including access to Walt Disney World Resort.
So if you see a #HeroActs post on social media from any of your favorite MCU stars, be sure to like it.
Now on to the Marvel Legends news.
Hasbro today has officially revealed several new 6" Marvel Legends store exclusive 2-Packs which includes a Target exclusive set featuring Falcon and Winter Soldier from Avengers: Infinity War. You will notice that they have added a beard to Winter Soldier which was missing from the one that debuted the other day on Good Morning America. The Falcon figure seems to be a re-issues of the previous Civil War version with some slight paint modifications.
Hasbro has also officially revealed 2 new Toys R' Us exclusive 2 packs, one featuring figures of Vision and Scarlet Witch and the other featuring figures of Thor, Rocket Raccoon and Teenage Groot. Both sets are based on the Avengers: Infinity War movie. This version of Thor unlike the one revealed yesterday as a regular release features him with an eye-patch and a sword that looks very much like the one Heimdall used in Thor: Ragnarok.
the Thor and Winter Soldier sets aren't slated for release until June, but at least according to Hasbro the Vision set will be out this weekend on March 3, which is the official embargo date when stores can start selling Avengers: Infinity War product.
Toys R' Us Exclusive Scarlet Witch & Vision (SRP: $39.99, Release Date 3/03/18)
Toys R' Us Exclusive Thor, Rocket & Teenage Groot (SRP: $49.99, Release Date 6/01/18)
While the official embargo date is Saturday for Infinity War product, many stores have already started selling the stuff early. It will be interesting to see if we actually see that Vision and Scarlet Witch set out this weekend since I have yet to see any early sightings of that set here in the United States. There have been some indications that TRU stores in Canada have them already.
Toys R' Us Exclusive Scott Lang Ant-Man & Stinger (SRP: $39.99)
Besides the two movie sets, Toys R' Us will also have a 3rd two-pack featuring comic book versions of Scott Lang Ant-Man and his Daughter Stinger which was revealed the other week during Toy Fair. Not sure what the release date on that one is.
Target we know will also be releasing a 2-Pack for the Black Panther movie which features an unmasked Killmonger and Agent Ross figure.

While still not officially confirmed by Hasbro, the two confirmed Target 2-Packs as well as a 3rd currently unannounced one rumored to include Infinity War figures of Tony Stark and Dr. Strange should include Build-A-Figure pieces for a Stan Lee figure based on his appearances from one of the MCU movies.
