Finally, here’s our Marvel Legends Report for SDCC 2017 – all the reveals, videos, booth pics, official PR pics, and teases – all in one spot. And while Hasbro showed off a massive amount of new figures and more for the remainder of this year and the start of next, there’s still a lot more to go. Of the new waves, they revealed only one completely.
A month ago, Hasbro revealed that the Marvel Legends Agent Venom figure would be released as a Walgreen’s exclusive. Originally shown in the Hasbro SDCC display last year, they said Venom would finally be available to pre-order at SDCC this year – and while we weren’t sure exactly how, now we know. The Agent Venom is now up for pre-order on the Walgreen’s website.

Get your pre-order in now – no telling when this will sell out.
Hasbro continues to find ways to bring the Marvel Legends that have yet to find shelf space because of the switch to movie-themed waves this year (see the previous announcement of another wave of Previews exclusive X-Men Legends.)
With this announcement, they’ve revealed that the Flash Thompson Agent Venom will be a Walgreens exclusive. Not sure how pre-ordering at SDCC will work, but we’ll find out.
We are excited to confirm that Hasbro’s Marvel Spider-Man Legends Infinite 6″ Agent Venom Action Figure, previously revealed at Comic-Con International in San Diego last Summer, will be made available this Fall, exclusively at Walgreens in the U.S.
This figure will be available for pre-order next month at SDCC. Fans should visit Hasbro’s display booth during the show for more information.
DC Collectibles has a pretty nifty giveaway going on. The prize pack includes some signed collectibles (including a 1:1 Power Battery, a Wonder Woman statue, and a Batman bust) and two action figures (Suicide Squad Harley Quinn and the 2013 SDCC exclusive Arkham City Hugo Strange).
They’re hosting this sweepstakes after hitting a big milestone – fifty thousand likes for the DC Collectibles Facebook page. And you don’t even have to like them on Facebook to enter the contest. Good luck!
It might be a bit early for Spring Cleaning, but I suppose you can file this under New Year’s Resolutions. My wife has been on me about the growing pile of action figures that has me fearing that a camera crew from Hoarders will show up. So expect some Free Stuff giveaways and eBay auctions to help put a dent in the plastic hazard in our home office.
Up right now on eBay is a set of the exclusive Marvel Legends Thunderbolts from SDCC last year. I picked up extras for fellow collectors but this one never found a home. You guys play with your action figures, right? This set will be complete but will ship loose – that should save you a few bucks over the auctions that include the packaging. And if you win, shoot me a message on eBay that you found the auction here on AFP, and I’ll cut 10% off the final price. Thanks for looking!
