As has been their tradition the past several years, Hasbro held its ‘Twas the Night Before… Party on the eve of New York Comic Con. All of its collector-oriented brands were represented, including marketing and design members from their Star Wars, Transformers, and Marvel brand teams.
We focused on the new Marvel Legends reveals. Those included the final reveals for the widely-rumored and now-confirmed Sandman Build-a-Figure Spider-Man wave, and four other Legends whose final homes have not yet been revealed, but may be slotted into upcoming X-Men and Guardians of the Galaxy waves.
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.
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.
Hasbro held its Marvel Legends panel at San Diego Comic-Con yesterday afternoon. In it, they covered the entirety of their Marvel Legends line, which now spans 12-inch, 6-inch, and 3.75-inch figures, as well as role playing items like the Captain America 75th Anniversary Shield. The “upgraded” Cap shield a special metal edition to commemorate the auspicious anniversary, while the less expensive version of the Cap shield has the same dimensions and leather straps, but is made of plastic.
