Finally, here’s our Marvel Legends Report for SDCC 2017 – all the reveals, videos, booth pics, official PR pics, and teases – all in one spot. And while Hasbro showed off a massive amount of new figures and more for the remainder of this year and the start of next, there’s still a lot more to go. Of the new waves, they revealed only one completely.
Say you’re Nick Fury, and you discover that Bruce Banner, aka The Incredible Hulk, has been kidnapped by Hydra and AIM – who do you call on to get him back? Well, first you’ll need someone who’s the best there is at what he does. Then having a living legend along for the ride couldn’t hurt either. And lastly, throw in the world’s best super spy, and they can’t fail. Or can they?
Find out what happens when Wolverine, Captain America, and the Black Widow join forces against the hordes of Hydra and AIM in this latest action-packed adventure from Bill’s Comics!!
Hasbro held their Collector Preview yesterday (read our Toy Fair 2017: Hasbro Marvel Legends Report to get caught up) and this morning they shared their press pics for a bunch of their Marvel Legends products. They’ve included a lot of the retailer exclusives that were not available on the showroom floor.
Pictured above – the Toys R Us exclusive Marvel Legends 6-inch A-Force 6-pack, featuring She-Hulk, Lady Loki, Lady Sif, Monica Rambeau, Singularity, and Elsa Bloodstone.
Now get ready for some sensory overload – over 70 more official Hasbro Marvel Legends pics ahead!
What’s clear coming out of this year’s Hasbro Collector Preview is that the Marvel team’s decision to rebrand the Marvel Legends to tie to mass media has been a success. This year, Legends is being driven not only by three movie releases in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but also by its extended TV properties on ABC and Netflix and several animated shows. The result is a healthy line-up that spans mass retail releases and exclusives for both traditional and online specialty retailers.
And what about those properties that still fall outside of Marvel Studios control? Hasbro is still finding a way to leverage them with comics-based figures.
Red Skull’s nefarious plan? Turn Captain America into an agent of HYDRA. And who better to test Cap’s new allegiances against than a former ally? Daredevil guest stars in Blind Fury!
