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.

When it comes to Hasbro and Marvel, we tend to think of Marvel Legends first. But they’ve got more – lots more, including basic 6-inch and 12-inch figures, electronic figures, and role play items.
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.

With the media embargo for Avengers: Infinity War lifted today, there’s been some accompanying product reveals – I’ve posted about Marvel Legends and LEGO sets for Infinity War already. But the one I have dreaded most is the Funko reveal – they’ve got SO MUCH STUFF!
While they started with Pop! as their solitary designer vinyl line, they’ve added Dorbz, Mystery Minis, and keychains to the mix. And then there’s the plush and clothing. You want to know who’s got the most star power in Infinity War? It’s Iron Man, based on the eleven different iterations (including variants) of him across the various Funko lines. In contrast, Thanos is the runner-up with eight, while Spidey’s got seven.

The embargo has finally lifted for Avengers: Infinity War, and the official launch date for licensed products is this Saturday, March 3rd. With that, LEGO has shared the details for the seven LEGO Marvel Super Heros sets for the movie that will all be available this weekend!
Product details may reveal some light spoilers. So while I quickly skimmed, I did notice that most of the sets come with specific Infinity Stone elements that you will want to collect, if you want to complete the Infinity Gauntlet in Thanos’ set.

In the past, I’d separate the Hasbro Marvel reports into Marvel Legends and everything else. At this Toy Fair, Hasbro has completed the consolidation of all the collector-oriented Marvel lines into the Marvel Legends brand. And while this will certainly cause confusion for non-collectors who shop for their collector loved ones, it’s really a testament to the strength of Legends.
Think back to 2007, when Hasbro first started producing Legends. Back then, it was clear that the star of 6-inch Legends had faded; Hasbro was focusing on their bread and butter 3.75-inch scale. Today, however, it’s 6-inch that is propelling the brand forward. Over 8MM units have been shipped since Hasbro first took over the license. Over 200 figures (many more if you count variants) have been produced.
