Our friends at Hasbro were kind enough to send the official press pics of the upcoming X-Men 20th Anniversary figures. This sub-brand of the main Marvel Legends line consists of four figures in unique packaging. Wolverine and Mystique are single-carded, while Magneto and Professor Xavier come in a two-pack. These are due out this Fall.
Hasbro held their annual Toy Fair Nerd Herd (officially the “Fan Media Day”) and it was packed – both with awesome new Marvel Legends reveals, and with people trying to get pictures of said Legends. It’s a big Marvel movie year for Marvel Studios and 21st Century Fox, and I was expecting the brand to line up with the movies those two studios are putting out.
Marvel Studios – Captain Marvel (figures already on shelves), Avengers: Endgame, and Spider-Man: Far From Home
Fox – Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants
While Hasbro did come out in full force in alignment with the movies, they still managed to mix in some surprises. Read on!
