Marvel Studios is celebrating 10 years of movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it’s fitting that Avengers: Infinity War brings together most of the heroes from those movies. Considering how many characters are in Infinity War, I find it amazing that Hasbro has delivered so many of them in the Marvel Legends line. This video includes all of the Marvel Legends figures I have from the final battle in the movie. Thanks to Hasbro for sending me several of the figures in this video!
To help celebrate ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Hasbro is going back to the beginning with its Marvel Legends Red Skull exclusive for San Diego Comic-Con. At least, that’s according to the historical timeline within the MCU. Johann Schmidt, AKA the Red Skull, was the big bad in Captain America: The First Avenger. This was actually the fifth movie released (after Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, and Thor), but the first in the timeline, with World War II as the backdrop.
Thanos is coming to Earth, and it’s not to visit Disney World. He seeks the one device that can help him achieve his goal of ending all life in the universe… the Ultimate Nullifier! The only thing standing in his way is a handful of Avengers.
Can Earth’s Mightiest Heroes stop Thanos and his evil allies before they eradicate all life as we know it? We hope so, or there won’t be a next issue! So, forge ahead, true believer, and prepare yourself for all-out action in the Mighty Marvel Manner!
When it comes to Hasbro and Marvel, we tend to think of Marvel Legends first. But they’ve got more – lots more, including basic 6-inch and 12-inch figures, electronic figures, and role play items.
So when Hasbro shared the details for (almost) all of their products for Avengers: Infinity War, we were suitably overwhelmed. We’ve included the official product images and descriptions in one massive round-up. Don’t worry – we put the Marvel Legends up top.
With the media embargo for Avengers: Infinity War lifted today, there’s been some accompanying product reveals – I’ve posted about Marvel Legends and LEGO sets for Infinity War already. But the one I have dreaded most is the Funko reveal – they’ve got SO MUCH STUFF!
While they started with Pop! as their solitary designer vinyl line, they’ve added Dorbz, Mystery Minis, and keychains to the mix. And then there’s the plush and clothing. You want to know who’s got the most star power in Infinity War? It’s Iron Man, based on the eleven different iterations (including variants) of him across the various Funko lines. In contrast, Thanos is the runner-up with eight, while Spidey’s got seven.
