When the Hasbro Marvel team showed us the first three figures in the Marvel Legends series for Thor: Ragnarok, we thought we’d have to wait until San Diego Comic-Con for the rest. We were wrong, and delightfully so. This morning, they shared the official pics of the rest of the wave, including an incredible Build-a-Figure. In addition, Hasbro revealed an exclusive Thor 2-pack destined for Target shelves.
LEGO is announcing three new Justice League sets for release on August 1st. You’ll be able to visit Atlantis, build up your armies of Parademons and Atlanteans, and add new Batman vehicles to his already impressive armory.
Aquaman (with a new deco), Batman, Cyborg, Flash, Wonder Woman, Steppenwolf, and Superman are among the mini-figures included in these sets. Wait a minute! Isn’t Superman dead? Dun dun dun!
Hasbro is building excitement in the weeks ahead of San Diego Comic-Con, by hosting a special online event today for fan websites. In an exclusive video chat, the Hasbro Marvel Legends team revealed the final two carded figures and the Build-A-Figure for the Marvel Knights / Netflix wave. They also teased three figures from a new Legends wave tied to Thor: Ragnarok.
The last I saw of Optimus Prime, back in 2014’s Transformers: Age of Extinction, he was flying off into space, apparently leaving Earth behind. So while I was not at all surprised to see him back on Earth in the trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight, it was a bit of a shocker to see him as the supposed villain… although maybe not as much as seeing Mark Wahlberg fighting Transformers with a sword.
If bad guy Optimus Prime has you reminiscing back to when we were still somewhat hopeful about Michael Bay’s handling of our beloved childhood memories, then help is here; Hasbro recently announced that the Optimus Prime we know and love, from the first Transformers live action movie, will be joining the Transformers Masterpiece Movie Series this summer. Another shocker? That movie came out ten years ago.
Hasbro has shared its official press images for the Marvel Legends reveals from earlier this morning. Following the release of the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer last night, CBR had the honors of revealing the first look at the Michael Keaton Vulture Marvel Legends figure.
And while Hasbro shared the first reveals from the next wave of Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy at San Diego Comic-Con, the Nerdist got to reveal that new figures for Star-Lord, Drax, and Yondu would round out the Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy wave.
