Hasbro kicked off New York Comic Con with their “deskside chat” with the Marvel brand team. Ryan Ting from marketing and Bobby Vala from design shared their latest reveals and plans for 2019.
I’ll be brief, since I’m trying to actually get to the convention sometime today 😀 – but will update as I review the video of our conversation. The video should go up on our YouTube channel late tonight or tomorrow morning.
The second wave of Marvel Legends Deadpool is arriving on shelves right on the heels of Deadpool 2 on DVD and Blu-ray (https://amzn.to/2wUEi7b) – a big thanks to Hasbro for providing these figures for review. The Sauron Build-a-Figure wave more accurately serves as a transition from Deadpool to the X-Men, in advance of a big movie year for Marvel’s mutants in 2019. The line-up includes three each of Deadpool and X-Men. On the Deadpool side, there’s the titular character in his boxers, another in his X-Men trainee t-shirt, and Lady Deadpool. From the X-Men, it’s villain Omega Red, X-23 in her All New All Different Wolverine costume, and Bishop in his glorious ’90s costume, complete with mullet.
While chasing down two of his greatest enemies, Wolverine stumbles into something much bigger. Now he’s in trouble, with a capital T. Will the rest of the X-Men be in time to save the old Canucklehead from certain death?
The super assassin known as Deathstroke has come to Gotham City with a few days to KILL. His TARGET is BATMAN, and he’s using Commissioner Gordon as the bait.
When the original Batmobile is knocked out of commission, how will Batman reach Jim Gordon in time before Deathstroke takes him out as well? Find out in this high octane, action-packed Batman adventure!
If you’re wondering about the Amazon-exclusive Days of Future Past Marvel Legends Sentinel and Wolverine 2-pack, here’s a size comparison of the recent Marvel Legends Old Man Logan with the original Marvel Universe Masterworks Sentinel. It was originally released in 2011 packed with a 3.75-inch Wolverine.
The set is not up for pre-order yet on Amazon, but keep this link handy to check for it easily:
