At ToyFair, Hasbro told us that they would be continuing the Marvel Legends Gamerverse figures that launched with the Capcom Iron Man / Mega Man 3.75-inch 2-pack last year, but didn’t offer much more detail than that. Now they’ve let us know that Gamestop is getting two Gamerverse Spider-Man offerings, which look to be based on Insomniac’s Spider-Man game, due out in September for the PlayStation 4.
With all the positive buzz the game generated coming out of E3, these exclusives may be the hottest Spider-Man variants to hit Marvel Legends this year. You can pre-order them now:
The heavy “wishbone” BTL Y-Wing fighter-bomber makes its return to LEGO’s Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series. The new set gets a significant piece count upgrade from the original UCS Y-Wing released in 2004, from 1,473 to 1,967 pieces. In addition to many cosmetic improvements, the new Y-Wing comes with a Gold Leader minifigure and his blaster; the original set had neither.
The new LEGO Star Wars UCS Y-Wing will be available on Star Wars Day. May the Fourth Be With You!
Hasbro has announced that an exclusive 3.75” Yakface figure from The Vintage Collection will be included with the Jabba’s Sail Barge (the Khetanna), their first item from HASLAB. This figure will come in exclusive Power of the Force card back packaging and have an exclusive coin, paying homage to its original release in 1985.
In addition, they’ve shared detailed pics and a timelapse video of the construction of the fully decoed Barge. With just under two weeks remaining to fund the development of the Barge, HASLAB is approaching 60% of the five thousand backers needed to move into production.
Scarlet Witch and Vision (Toys R Us, available 3/3) – Wanda looks to be a repaint of the Abomination wave version, while Vision gets his first movie figure
Thor, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot (Toys R Us, available 6/1) – Rocket is a re-issue of the GotG2 figure, while Thor and teenaged Groot look like new sculpts. And while the single-carded Thor revealed yesterday has both eyes intact, this Thor sports an eye patch.
Winter Soldier and Falcon (Target, available 6/1) – Bucky looks like he re-uses some parts from the Walmart exclusive Civil War figure, while using Hasbro’s face printing tech for an improved face deco. Falcon looks like a repaint of the Walmart figure.
