Toy Fair 2019: Hasbro Marvel Legends Report

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.

Hasbro Reveals Retailer Exclusive Marvel Legends Multi-Packs for Avengers: Infinity War

Yesterday, the media embargo date for Avengers: Infinity War was lifted, and Hasbro revealed the remaining figures for its two waves of Marvel Legends tied to the movie. But wait – there’s more! This morning, they shared three Marvel Legends movie multi-packs that will be retailer exclusives:

  • 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.

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.
