Build Ultron Prime, get Ant-Man, and complete the Wrecking Crew!
For a single wave of Marvel Legends, it sure has a lot going on. Known officially as the Ultron wave, it’s tied into the blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron movie with Ultron Prime as the Build-a-Figure. Unofficially, it’s also being called the Ant-Man wave – it’s got Scott Lang in the movie Ant-Man costume and Janet Van Dyne and Hank Pym in their comic-based Wasp and Giant Man costumes respectively. And last but not least, it includes two of the figures that were “lost” when Hasbro revamped the distribution model and shelved the running change variants – one of those is Bulldozer, who finally completes the Wrecking Crew.
So if you want a Frankenstein Friday, check out the sale now – it’s for today only!

Free shipping promo ends today; Hulkbuster ships July 1
With all the Avengers: Age of Ultron hype this weekend I somehow missed that the official Marvel shop is running a free shipping promotion and that they have the new Marvel Select Hulkbuster Iron Man up for pre-order. To qualify for free shipping, just use code “ULTRON” while checking out – don’t worry, you won’t be unleashing a mad robot intent on the destruction of the human race. The free shipping promo ends today.
And if you’ve got a Hulk problem in your action figure collection, then pre-order the Marvel Select Hulkbuster Iron Man, exclusive to the Marvel Shop and Disney Stores. Diamond Select Toys says it’s “inspired by Iron Man’s appearance in Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron” but we know this bad boy is straight out of the comics. Long-time collectors may remember the Hulkbuster that came with the Toy Biz Marvel Legends Legendary Riders wave – I loved that Iron Man, but this update looks a lot less like a toy, and much more like a kick-ass suit of armor.
