Marvel Legends EU Disney Store Exclusive Avengers 5-Pack – High Res Pics

Marvel Legends EU Disney Store exclusive - package

A short while ago we came across an Instagram post of this Avengers-themed Marvel Legends 5-pack. With the Disney Store marking, we learned it was to be exclusive to the retail chain, but only in the European Union stores. Since the exclusive is comprised of re-issued figures, its exclusivity outside the United States wouldn’t raise much interest or concern. However, keen observers noted that a new interchangeable head for Tony Stark was included with Iron Man. Hard to imagine that the smallest piece in this pack could be the most sought after, but stranger things have happened.

Hasbro has shared high res pics of the set with us.

Hasbro Reveals Ahsoka Tano for Black Series at Star Wars Celebration

Star Wars Rebels hero is first non-film character to join the 6-inch line

Hasbro Reveals Ahsoka Tano at Star Wars Celebration

Hasbro was on site at Star Wars Celebration with an exclusive first-time reveal: the prototype for Ahsoka Tano from Star Wars Rebels in the Star Wars Black Series 6-inch line. We’d previously seen her join the 3.75-inch animated line for the show, but this will be the first time a character from outside the original trilogy and the prequels will be featured in the 6-inch line.

After a relatively scarce showing for the Black Series at Toy Fair, we were expecting some confirmation of Black Series figures for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Not just yet, but perhaps we’ll see something in this regard from Hasbro before Celebration is through. If not, then definitely at San Diego Comic-Con.

Border Patrol: Marvel Legends Daredevil, Deadpool, and Hercules

Border Patrol - Marvel Legends Daredevil (Netflix), Deadpool (movie), and Hercules

For this edition of Border Patrol, we’ve got three Marvel Legends customs. One’s from the small screen, another’s from the big screen, and the third is from our favorite source, the good old comic book.

In AFP’s Border Patrol, we scour active eBay auctions for customized action figures that you won’t want to let slip by!

I Am Your Fodder: Marvel Legends Edition

Marvel Legends Constrictor, Madame Masque, and Bucky Captain America on sale

I Am Your Fodder - Marvel Legends Constrictor, Madame Masque, and Bucky Captain America

I think most people would admit that Hasbro has hit its groove with Marvel Legends in terms of character selection and execution, but that still doesn’t mean they’re getting to all your favorites from the Marvel universe. Luckily, Amazon has a variety of Marvel Legends on sale that cover the basic body types for your customizing pleasure.

  • Marvel Universe Constrictor Figure 6 Inches – $7.90 – Hasbro said they would be retiring this body after its use on Iron Fist. I think the base figure has been unfairly maligned lately. While I think the newer hip style is better, and the thighs have seen better days, remember that this body was derived from the old Toy Biz Bullseye.
  • Marvel Universe Marvels Madames Action Figure Madame Masque, 6 Inches – $9.99 – This body saw a lot of use starting with the SHIELD Agent 2-packs. It’s not as curvy as the newer body used recently on Ms. Marvel, but there’s still a lot of characters that could benefit from the slimmer build.
  • Marvel Universe Captain America Figure 6 Inches – $11.80 – This is a go-to body for Hasbro now, and deservedly so. Bucky Cap is a great option for fodder if you don’t mind dealing with boot and glove cuffs. Machine Man at $17 is a completely blank base body, if you don’t mind spending a little more.

I Am Your Fodder highlights action figures that are cheap and would make interesting customizing fodder.

Border Patrol: Marvel Legends Rogue, WWE Seth Rollins, and Transformers Optimus Prime

Border Patrol - Marvel Legends Rogue, WWE Seth Rollins, Transformers Optimus Prime

In this edition of Border Patrol, we’ve got some tried and true favorites plus a new champ:

  • Marvel Legends Rogue by Loose Collector – the DC Direct Hush Poison Ivy has been a go-to head for the likes of Rogue and Jean Grey for years, but the Loose Collector crew is one of the few capable of executing the recipe so cleanly – ends Wednesday, April 8 at 7:03PM PST
  • WWE Wrestlemania 31 Seth Rollins by highlytales88 – just how much is a WWE Heavyweight championship worth? – after snatching the title from Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 31, this Seth Rollins custom skyrocketed in price, getting bid up by fans looking to secure memorabilia from his championship run – ends Thursday, April 9 at 4:57PM PST
  • Transformers Masterpiece Optimus Prime by billmeistercustoms – it’s been a while since I’ve seen a Masterpiece Optimus Prime, but with as many as there have been, and as many as there will be, it makes you wonder just how much more Takara and Hasbro could charge for a metallic paint job – ends Wednesday, April 8 at 11:16AM PST
