Hasbro may have jump-started SDCC 2016 by revealing the latest figures in the upcoming Marvel Legends Spider-Man and Dr. Strange waves, but they’ve continued to add goodness to their booth display each day. That’s culminated with the official reveals during their panel discussion earlier today.
We’ll have our video of the Hasbro Marvel panel, including the full Q&A, posted some time tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s the latest on what’s coming up for the Marvel Legends 6-inch line in 2017.

Hasbro kicked off San Diego Comic-Con 2016 with their Brand Preview Breakfast. This included reveals for Star Wars, Transformers, My Little Ponies and more, but I focused primarily on the new reveals for Marvel Legends.
The reveals included a wave of Spider-Man Legends consisting of Green Goblin, Spider-Man U.K., Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan), an updated black-suited Spidey, Spider-Man 2099, and Jackal. Hasbro also had two Dr. Strange movie figures – the Benedict Cumberbatch Dr. Strange and Chiwetel Ejiofor Baron Mordo.

With San Diego Comic-Con just over a week away, Hasbro has released details for its Marvel exclusives. While the Collector’s Vault (in Marvel Universe 3.75-inch scale) and the Raft (in Marvel Legends 6-inch scale) have been steadily making the rounds on eBay, we’re glad to finally see the official pics and specifics.
In recent years, Hasbro has leveraged the upcoming year’s Marvel movie slate for its exclusives, like it did with last year’s Marvel Legends Book of the Vishanti set for this year’s Dr. Strange. Likewise, we’ve got the Marvel Universe Collector’s Vault aligned with next year’s Guardian’s of the Galaxy 2 and the Marvel Legends Raft set aligned with next year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. Since these exclusives are planned up to a year in advance (and therefore up to two years ahead of the movie release), they do not likely reveal characters or plot points for the movies themselves… but it’s still fun to speculate.
As with exclusives in previous years, both the Collector’s Vault and the Raft will be available in limited quantities following Comic-Con at HasbroToyShop.com. We’ll be picking ours up (hopefully) at SDCC next week!

Mattel designers (and twins) Garrett and Darren Sanders were at Power-Con to share the Masters of the Universe exclusive for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, the premium Princess of Power She-Ra doll. And while they confirmed that this would be the sole MOTU exclusive for the show, they did present an upbeat discussion of the origins of the She-Ra exclusive and plans for it moving forward.

Seeing the Four Horsemen is one of my favorite stops at Toy Fair. It’s always been great to talk about their work with Mattel on DC, Masters of the Universe Classics, and now Thundercats, but it’s a special treat when they’ve got their own brands to show off. Their Toy Fair booth was predominantly about their Kickstarter Mythic Legions line, which after some delays is approaching the finish line. Most of what was on display were actual factory production figures.
And they’ve revealed that there’s more to come!
