It’s Time to Order Your Dr. Strange Marvel Legends!

Marvel Legends Dr Strange wave

By the hoary hosts of Hoggoth, we’re a couple of months away from Benedict Cumberbatch’s Dr. Strange hitting theaters, on November 4 in the US. Online retailers have their pre-orders up for the Strange Marvel Legends wave, and they’re expecting figures to land some time this month.

Here’s where I recommend picking them up:

Unlike most Legends waves, this one has eight individual figures. You will not have any extras after you assemble the BAF, the dread Dormammu. EE has the benefit of free shipping, which makes a difference.

Individually, cherry pick the Dr. Strange wave at Amazon (http://afpics.link/2cdTJvT) for $19.99 with free prime shipping.

Who is Your Pick for the Hasbro Marvel Legends Fans Choice Poll?

Hasbro Marvel Legends Fans Choice Vote - Darkhawk, Angela, Symbiote Spider-Man, and Mysterio

Hasbro is conducting a new Fans Choice poll for Marvel Legends on the Marvel.com site. The four finalists, Darkhawk, Angela, Symbiote Spider-Man, and Mysterio, were selected by fans from an initial set of 16 choices at the Hasbro booth at San Diego Comic-Con. To rock the vote, Marvel offered up the chance to win a Stan Lee autographed SDCC-exclusive Marvel Infinite Series (nee Marvel Universe) Ant-Man set if you retweeted their announcement of the poll. (The winner was to be the 100th person to retweet, and there’ve been many more who’ve RT’d already.)

Need some help deciding? We’ve got the history (including action figures) for each choice.

Mattel and the Four Horsemen Provide Post-SDCC Mattycollector Updates

Mattel and Four Horsemen post-SDCC updates

The folks at Mattycollector and the Four Horsemen have provided some post-SDCC updates. Mattel provided the words, and the 4H have posted a bunch of pics – we’ve combined them here.

For the tl;dr version, the three subs (Collector’s Choice, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe aka Filmation, and Thundercats Classics) will be offered at different times (now, October, and early 2016, respectively). Matty will work with Digital River on how to combine subs. Snake Mountain will be 10 – 20% smaller. And getting Power Con exclusives into non-attendees’ hands is He-Man.org’s problem.

SDCC 2015: Bandai Kicks Ass with S.H. Figuarts Bruce Lee

SDCC 2015 - Bandai Tamashii Nations S.H. Figuarts Bruce Lee

Martial arts icon Bruce Lee would have been 75 years old this year. To celebrate this anniversary, Bandai’s Tamashii Nations announced the S.H. Figuarts Bruce Lee at San Diego Comic-Con. His daughter, Shannon Lee, was at the Bluefin booth for the unveiling of the prototype.

The action figure is based on his appearance in Enter the Dragon. No word yet on price or release date, but we’ll keep a look out – I imagine this will move fast in pre-orders. No idea what Bandai’s license covers, but I’d be surprised if we don’t see a Game of Death figure to follow this one at some point down the line.

SDCC 2015: Hasbro Marvel Legends Panel Reveals

SDCC 2015 Hasbro Spider-Man Marvel Legends - Gwen Ben

Hasbro held its Marvel panel yesterday (video coming soon to our YouTube channel) and showed off figures planned for the first waves of Captain America and Spider-Man-themed Marvel Legends in 2016. Now, we’d already been introduced to the full Spider-Man wave with Absorbing Man as the BAF at the morning event on Thursday, and a trio of figures from the Cap wave on Friday. But Hasbro still had a few surprises in store for us.

After the panel, Hasbro sent us pics of nearly all the Marvel Legends reveals from the panel. Not just the typical white background product pics – they also included some really gorgeous drama shots. Kudos to the team that shot those!
