To help celebrate ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Hasbro is going back to the beginning with its Marvel Legends Red Skull exclusive for San Diego Comic-Con. At least, that’s according to the historical timeline within the MCU. Johann Schmidt, AKA the Red Skull, was the big bad in Captain America: The First Avenger. This was actually the fifth movie released (after Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, and Thor), but the first in the timeline, with World War II as the backdrop.
The Marvel Legends exclusive for San Diego Comic-Con is finally official. The Hollywood Reporter revealed, and then quickly retracted, the first look at the exclusive on June 19. Now it’s back!
The “Marvel Legends Series Defenders Rail Authority 5-Pack” features Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Colleen Wing, and Iron Fist, as they’ve appeared in the various Marvel Netflix series.
Fans of the critically-aclaimed Netflix original series, Voltron Legendary Defender, will have plenty to do at San Diego Comic-Con this year.
- Dreamworks Animated Television will debut the premiere episode of the seventh season of the show and host a signing of an SDCC-exclusive poster.
- LEGO has just released the first official pics of its LEGO Ideas Voltron set, and is making a limited number of sets available early at the Con.
- Bluefin has a special convention exclusive version of the Bandai Shokugan Super Voltron Super Mini-Pla.
- The Playmates Toys Hyper-Phase Voltron 5-piece gift set will be on display at the Diamond PREVIEWS Booth #2401 and available for purchase from participating retailers at the Con.
- Lion Forge Comics will have an exclusive variant of Voltron Legendary Defender Series 3, Issue 1.
- And designer Han Cholo will have exclusive Voltron Membership Kits and Enamel Pins for sale.

At ToyFair, Hasbro told us that they would be continuing the Marvel Legends Gamerverse figures that launched with the Capcom Iron Man / Mega Man 3.75-inch 2-pack last year, but didn’t offer much more detail than that. Now they’ve let us know that Gamestop is getting two Gamerverse Spider-Man offerings, which look to be based on Insomniac’s Spider-Man game, due out in September for the PlayStation 4.
With all the positive buzz the game generated coming out of E3, these exclusives may be the hottest Spider-Man variants to hit Marvel Legends this year. You can pre-order them now:
- Spider-Man Legends Series 6-inch Gamerverse Spider-Man Figure
- Marvel’s Spider-Man Gamerverse Spider-Man vs. Mister Negative 2-pack
The heavy “wishbone” BTL Y-Wing fighter-bomber makes its return to LEGO’s Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series. The new set gets a significant piece count upgrade from the original UCS Y-Wing released in 2004, from 1,473 to 1,967 pieces. In addition to many cosmetic improvements, the new Y-Wing comes with a Gold Leader minifigure and his blaster; the original set had neither.
The new LEGO Star Wars UCS Y-Wing will be available on Star Wars Day. May the Fourth Be With You!
