Toy Fair 2017: Hasbro Marvel Legends Report

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.

Hasbro Shares Details for Star Wars Retailer Exclusives

We’re a week away from Force Friday, and Hasbro has more retailer exclusives incoming. As you might expect, most are tied-in with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but a certain astromech droid is looking to remote control his way to your heart.

With the Star Wars Smart R2-D2, Hasbro is looking to capture some of the magic that Sphero did with its app-enabled BB-8 (http://amzn.to/2cMWhmE). While you won’t be able to pick up R2-D2 at Walmart until next week, you can preview the companion app for Android and iOS now. Now I just need an appropriately-sized C-3PO head for Artoo to drag around.

If you were wondering where the 3.75-inch figures were in yesterday’s Star Wars reveals from Hasbro (http://afpics.link/2bGG8ir), they couldn’t be contained in a single announcement! But there’s more.

Hasbro also shared their role play items, which include a voice changer Death Trooper mask and a pretty cool update to their Stormtrooper voice changer helmet.

It’s Time to Order Your Dr. Strange Marvel Legends!

Marvel Legends Dr Strange wave

By the hoary hosts of Hoggoth, we’re a couple of months away from Benedict Cumberbatch’s Dr. Strange hitting theaters, on November 4 in the US. Online retailers have their pre-orders up for the Strange Marvel Legends wave, and they’re expecting figures to land some time this month.

Here’s where I recommend picking them up:

Unlike most Legends waves, this one has eight individual figures. You will not have any extras after you assemble the BAF, the dread Dormammu. EE has the benefit of free shipping, which makes a difference.

Individually, cherry pick the Dr. Strange wave at Amazon (http://afpics.link/2cdTJvT) for $19.99 with free prime shipping.
