Weekend Toy Run: Pre-Order the Marvel Legends Rhino Wave at Entertainment Earth

Marvel Legends Rhino wave

Generally, I prefer having the option to order Marvel Legends figures individually, so I’ve been waiting for the Rhino wave to show up on Amazon, like the Marvel Legends Ant-Man / Ultron wave did a couple weeks ago – but inexplicably it hasn’t yet. So I am doing the next best thing – I’m pre-ordering a case of the Marvel Legends Rhino wave at Entertainment Earth for $159.99 with free shipping. That will leave me with a duplicate Scarlet Spider to give away.

There are other options: you could pre-order the Rhino case or a seven figure set (no dupes) from BigBadToyStore. The case costs the same as EE, but shipping is extra. And the seven figure set only saves you $5 at $154.99 – and again you pay shipping. The math there doesn’t make sense to me.

Toys R Us also has the Rhino wave up for pre-order – they currently show up first when you search for Marvel Legends on the TRU site. While you can pre-order the figures individually, they’re $21.99 each – for all seven you’d be at $153.93 (with free shipping, though) so to me it really only makes sense if you’re going to cherry-pick the wave.

SDCC 2015 Hasbro Exclusive Special Edition Toys

With less than a month to go before the big show, Hasbro has finally unveiled their San Diego Comic-Con exclusives. Sure, we’d caught glimpses – Hasbro teased the Transformers Devastator on Facebook and shared the Marvel Legends Dr. Strange Book of Vishanti set with USA Today, and we got a sneak peek at the Star Wars First Order Stormtrooper on eBay.

But there’s more… all with official descriptions and prices from Hasbro, with high res photos to boot. Even if you’re not making it to San Diego, Hasbro will offer these exclusives after the show at HasbroToyShop.com. So get your wallets ready!

SDCC 2015 (and WebSwipe): Hasbro Reveals Exclusive Marvel Legends Dr. Strange Box Set – USAToday.com

Marvel Legends Dr. Strange SDCC 2015 exclusive box set

We’ve been anxiously awaiting news for Hasbro’s Marvel exclusive for San Diego Comic-Con, and USAToday.com broke the news – it’s a Marvel Legends box set built around Dr. Strange. With the Benedict Cumberbatch movie scheduled for November 2016, I’m guessing Marvel will do some teasers at their panel this year, but I wonder if this set may have been better suited for SDCC next year.

The packaging is a novel concept (no book-pun intended) – it’s in the form of Dr. Strange’s Book of the Vishanti. In the pages preceding the figures, the Book will feature artwork and profiles for the five figures included. We’ll get to them momentarily, but first wanted to highlight that included with the book is another prop – the mystical talisman, the Eye of Agamotto. With the Book of the Vishanti and the Eye of Agamotto in your possession, all you need to add is your own Cloak of Levitation, and you could be the next Sorcerer Supreme.

The figures themselves are a strange mix (also no pun intended.) The ones that make sense to me are Dr. Strange, in a translucent deco variant from the one that will ship with the Marvel Legends Hulkbuster wave; Brother Voodoo, who succeeded Strange as the Sorcerer Supreme; and Dormammu, Strange’s arch-enemy and ruler of the Dark Dimension. The inclusion of Hela and Magik (in her Marvel Now Darkchylde armor) seem tacked on. It may be lack of comic knowledge on my part, but I don’t know when Dr. Strange has had any significant interaction with the Goddess of Hel from Thor’s mythology or with the mutant sorceress and ruler of Limbo. While I’m not complaining to get either, I think the box set would have been stronger with Clea and Wong as supporting characters for Strange.

At $104.99, these sets are seeing a small price creep – the Thanos Imperative set from last year was $99.99

Pre-Order the Marvel Legends Ultron / Ant-Man Wave at Amazon

Build Ultron Prime, get Ant-Man, and complete the Wrecking Crew!

Marvel Legends Ultron (Ant-Man) wave

For a single wave of Marvel Legends, it sure has a lot going on. Known officially as the Ultron wave, it’s tied into the blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron movie with Ultron Prime as the Build-a-Figure. Unofficially, it’s also being called the Ant-Man wave – it’s got Scott Lang in the movie Ant-Man costume and Janet Van Dyne and Hank Pym in their comic-based Wasp and Giant Man costumes respectively. And last but not least, it includes two of the figures that were “lost” when Hasbro revamped the distribution model and shelved the running change variants – one of those is Bulldozer, who finally completes the Wrecking Crew.

You can pre-order all six of the Marvel Legends Ultron / Ant-Man figures at Amazon. If you want to cherry-pick:

Happy shopping!
