Border Patrol: Marvel Legends Black Panther (Movie), Red King, and Rogue

Border Patrol - Marvel Legends Black Panther, Red King, and Rogue

In this edition of Border Patrol, we’ve found three Marvel Legends customs that we’re unlikely to see in the actual line any time soon.

  • Black Panther (movie) by bigoso_customs: The Black Panther movie isn’t slated to be released for another three years, but there’s nothing like getting a jump on getting the inevitable action figures for Marvel’s Phase 3. The design is based on some concept art that’s leaked for the movie. Ends Friday, July 24, at 9:44PM PT.
  • Red King by Loose Collector: Hasbro had originally planned to release Planet Hulk’s Red King in a follow-up to the Hulk-themed Fin Fang Foom wave way back in 2008/2009, but that got shelved as the line lost traction at retail and went on hiatus. At that time, I don’t think they could’ve matched what Loose Collector’s done with this custom, but today? They may be able to come closer, but it’s hard to see them making this character now. Ends Thursday, July 23, at 6:35PM PT.
  • Rogue by nartardee: Rogue is one of the remaining “lost figures” from when Hasbro made the switch from running changes for variants in the line – she would have been a swap-out for Emma Frost from the Jubilee wave. While this custom is from the Jim Lee costume vs the Marvel Now! look, it does highlight that there are better options available for the base body. When I talked to Dwight Stall at SDCC, he mentioned that if Hasbro does revisit the remaining lost figures, he’d probably re-do them now than releasing them as they’d been shown before. Ends Wednesday, July 29, at 4:29AM PT.

Border Patrol: Marvel Legends Ultron, Jubilee, and Whirlwind

Border Patrol - Marvel Legends Ultron, Jubilee, and Whirlwind

In this week’s Border Patrol, we’ve got a trio of Marvel Legends customs, including one that closes in just a couple of hours. Don’t miss out!

  • Marvel Legends Ultron (Movie) Build-a-Figure by Horton’s Heroes: This repaint of the build-a-figure from the recent Marvel Legends wave is very clean and shiny, so it’s no wonder its auction is off the hook. It ends in a couple of hours, so if you are willing to put down some coin, better act fast. Ends today at 3:32PM PST.
  • Marvel Legends Jubilee by TextureMe Customs: If you didn’t get the build-a-figure from the exclusive X-Men wave, then this might be the one for you. It’s built off the Captain Marvel body, so it might be a little big depending on how you like your Jubilees. One thing I like is the multi-colored plasma effects on the accessories that came with Scarlet Witch. Ends Friday, July 17, at 8:09PM PST.
  • Marvel Legends Whirlwind by Stevid Customs: Marvel Legends could use some more Masters of Evil, and this Whirlwind is about as clean as you can get a custom. Ends Saturday, July 18, at 7:00PM PST.

Border Patrol: Masters of the Universe Classics 200X Merman, Rio Blast, and Mosquitor

Border Patrol Masters of the Universe Classics 200X Merman Rio Blast and Mosquitor

It’s hard to make sense of how Mattel marketed Masters of the Universe Classics with respect to its earlier 200X toys. At first, they catered to 200X fans by including alternate, 200X-inspired heads. Then, they “banned” them, citing both cost concerns and upper management’s dislike of the aesthetics. And finally, with the line nearing its end, they decided to milk 200X by offering the 6-figure 200X sub. Along the way, there’s been missed opportunities, and it’s been up to customizers to fill those gaps.

Border Patrol: Marvel Legends Thor, Space Ghost, and Daredevil

Border Patrol - Marvel Legends Thor (female), Space Ghost, and Daredevil (Netflix red)

It’s a grab bag of sorts for this week’s Border Patrol:

  • Marvel Legends Thor (female) by Jufri Sukmana: The costume design doesn’t match up with what I’ve seen of the (spoiler) Jane Foster Thor that is currently worthy, but it makes for a striking action figure regardless. This one ends in a couple hours, so be quick if you want to bid. Ends today at 10:54AM PST.
  • Space Ghost (movie concept) by Nuffsaid: I normally have to ignore most movie designs as being over-engineered for that high-tech look. But if they ever made a Space Ghost movie and this were the costume they used, I’d be pretty pleased with it – it stays pretty true to the classic. Ends Wednesday June 3, at 5:40PM PST.
  • Marvel Legends Daredevil (Netflix red) by thor333uspb: Marvel recently announced some licensing deals for the Daredevil series on Netflix, but action figures were not among them. That’s not necessarily telling, since I think Hasbro and/or Diamond Select Toys would already be licensees, but thus far neither has revealed any plans. So the customs will keep coming. This one in particular has great sculpted details for the armor. Ends Saturday, June 6, at 7:08PM PST.
