Yesterday, the media embargo date for Avengers: Infinity War was lifted, and Hasbro revealed the remaining figures for its two waves of Marvel Legends tied to the movie. But wait – there’s more! This morning, they shared three Marvel Legends movie multi-packs that will be retailer exclusives:
- Scarlet Witch and Vision (Toys R Us, available 3/3) – Wanda looks to be a repaint of the Abomination wave version, while Vision gets his first movie figure
- Thor, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot (Toys R Us, available 6/1) – Rocket is a re-issue of the GotG2 figure, while Thor and teenaged Groot look like new sculpts. And while the single-carded Thor revealed yesterday has both eyes intact, this Thor sports an eye patch.
- Winter Soldier and Falcon (Target, available 6/1) – Bucky looks like he re-uses some parts from the Walmart exclusive Civil War figure, while using Hasbro’s face printing tech for an improved face deco. Falcon looks like a repaint of the Walmart figure.

With the media embargo for Avengers: Infinity War lifted today, there’s been some accompanying product reveals – I’ve posted about Marvel Legends and LEGO sets for Infinity War already. But the one I have dreaded most is the Funko reveal – they’ve got SO MUCH STUFF!
While they started with Pop! as their solitary designer vinyl line, they’ve added Dorbz, Mystery Minis, and keychains to the mix. And then there’s the plush and clothing. You want to know who’s got the most star power in Infinity War? It’s Iron Man, based on the eleven different iterations (including variants) of him across the various Funko lines. In contrast, Thanos is the runner-up with eight, while Spidey’s got seven.

This morning, the Hasbro Marvel team held a roundtable meeting for online media for New York Comic Con, and we were lucky enough to be there. I’ll be putting together the 360 degree video tonight and should have it posted tomorrow. [Update: video posted below.]
In the meantime, here’s a summary of the Hasbro reveals from both HASCon a couple of weeks ago and NYCC today. For completeness, I’ll include the prior reveals from San Diego Comic-Con. So far we’ve got a pretty deep look into 2018.

It’s Force Friday! At midnight tonight, stores have the green light to finally put Star Wars products out on the shelf. There’s a ton of it, and Hasbro has shared the official pics and descriptions. We’re going to focus it on the Star Wars Black Series 6-inch offerings.
We’ve seen some product line extensions in 6-inch. In addition to single-carded figures, we’re seeing more vehicles and a completely new line that includes 6-inch scaled statues plus environments, which you can plus up by adding your own Black Series figures to the scene.
Finally, if you’re sensitive to spoilers (even minor ones), you might want to skip this article. I try to stay away from entertainment news, but the product line-ups may reveal characters and story details that might tell you too much for your taste.
May the Force be with you!
