Finally, here’s our Marvel Legends Report for NYTF 2018 – all the reveals, booth pics, official PR pics, and teases – all in one spot. While Hasbro shared much of what’s to come throughout 2018, they still held back enough to keep us in suspense. Of all the waves covered in their Entertainment Brand Preview, all but one or two still have figures to reveal.
We’ll cover them in the order they were discussed and include the pics we shot in the booth and the official PR shots Hasbro shared with us. Read on!
In anticipation of Fox’s sequel to their 2016 hit, Deadpool, Hasbro has teased a second wave of a Deadpool-themed Marvel Legends wave. Included in the wave, due out in Fall this year, are Deadpool in one of his X-Men costumes, fan-favorite villain Omega Red, and Lady Deadpool. Also on their way are a basic Titan Hero 12-inch Deadpool and role-playing mask and katanas.
