Hasbro is conducting a new Fans Choice poll for Marvel Legends on the Marvel.com site. The four finalists, Darkhawk, Angela, Symbiote Spider-Man, and Mysterio, were selected by fans from an initial set of 16 choices at the Hasbro booth at San Diego Comic-Con. To rock the vote, Marvel offered up the chance to win a Stan Lee autographed SDCC-exclusive Marvel Infinite Series (nee Marvel Universe) Ant-Man set if you retweeted their announcement of the poll. (The winner was to be the 100th person to retweet, and there’ve been many more who’ve RT’d already.)
Need some help deciding? We’ve got the history (including action figures) for each choice.
I am at the airport, so excuse any typos. Hasbro has just revealed more Marvel exclusives for San Diego Comic-Con, for the upcoming Ant-Man movie. The pair of exclusives feature a multi-pack of Ant-Men, presumably in scale with Marvel Universe figures (but with a size-changer, does it matter?) and a very cool tiny Ant-Man that comes packaged in a Pym-branded matchbook.
For this edition of Border Patrol, we’ve got three custom action figures from the kick-ass Netflix Daredevil series:
Marvel Legends Netflix Daredevil (battle-damaged) and Nobu (the Hand) by moomoo1366: This pair of figures are being sold separately but would make a great 2-pack. I’ve seen quite a few black-suited Daredevil customs, but this is the first with battle-damage. Fitting, because it’s Nobu from the Hand who messed him up. Daredevil ends Wednesday, May 27 at 12:23PM PST. Nobu ends Wednesday, May 27 at 12:16PM PST.
Star Wars Black Series Deadpool Boba Fett by FanBoys Toys – this mash-up might not be your thing, but with a new Star Wars movie coming out at the end of this year, and a Deadpool movie on its heels in February, maybe it’s time these two characters get the bodyslide by two treatment – ends Thursday, April 9, at 9:02PM PST
In AFP’s Border Patrol, we scour active eBay auctions for customized action figures that you won’t want to let slip by!
As much as I’m digging on Marvel Legends for 2015, I’d be remiss if I didn’t highlight the other expressions from Hasbro’s Marvel team before shutting down for the night. In figures, the ones nearest to my heart are the Marvel Universe and Marvel Titan Series figures.
