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.
Daredevil discovers the evil Hand is back in New York City. Will he have to face an army of deadly ninjas alone, or will he get by with a little help from his friends, Wolverine and Iron Fist?! It’s all out martial arts mayhem when Bill’s Comics presents “3 Against The Hand!!”
Be sure to check out the rest of Bill’s work here at AFP and at Bill’s Comics. And thanks to Extreme-Sets for providing review samples of the Abandoned House, Building, Deranged Alley, and Subway diorama sets.
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:
- Full case at Entertainment Earth for $159.99 – http://afpics.link/2c5GekG
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.

Bill is back with his latest action figure comic, a Daredevil story featuring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. (It’s the sequel to Daredevil Meet the TMNT!) With an assist from Iron Fist, these martial artists take on Silvermane, Hammerhead, and the Rhino. Also, don’t miss a cameo from a certain Dynamic Duo!
In the past, I’d separate the Hasbro Marvel reports into Marvel Legends and everything else. At this Toy Fair, Hasbro has completed the consolidation of all the collector-oriented Marvel lines into the Marvel Legends brand. And while this will certainly cause confusion for non-collectors who shop for their collector loved ones, it’s really a testament to the strength of Legends.
Think back to 2007, when Hasbro first started producing Legends. Back then, it was clear that the star of 6-inch Legends had faded; Hasbro was focusing on their bread and butter 3.75-inch scale. Today, however, it’s 6-inch that is propelling the brand forward. Over 8MM units have been shipped since Hasbro first took over the license. Over 200 figures (many more if you count variants) have been produced.
