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:
When the Merc with a Mouth answers a “Help Wanted” ad on the dark web, he suddenly finds himself neck deep in trouble… as usual! Now he must swallow his pride and enlist the aid of Wolverine, Cable and the rest of X-Force, to stop a plot for world domination by a group of evil mutants.
But not to worry true believers – with Deadpool leading the charge, what could possibly go wrong?
Thanos is coming to Earth, and it’s not to visit Disney World. He seeks the one device that can help him achieve his goal of ending all life in the universe… the Ultimate Nullifier! The only thing standing in his way is a handful of Avengers.
Can Earth’s Mightiest Heroes stop Thanos and his evil allies before they eradicate all life as we know it? We hope so, or there won’t be a next issue! So, forge ahead, true believer, and prepare yourself for all-out action in the Mighty Marvel Manner!
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.
