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.

Funko Reveals Avengers: Infinity War Product Line-Up

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.

Hot Toys Announces Nick Fury from Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Hot Toys Captain America The Winter Soldier Nick Fury 01

Ever since he made his cameo appearance in the post-credit scene in the first Iron Man movie, I’d been wondering if we’d ever get to see what’s underneath Nick Fury’s eye patch. And after appearing in another four movies (Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, and The Avengers) and the Agents of SHIELD TV show, we finally did, at the climax of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. How many eye-related puns did we have to endure in the process?

The eye reveal must have motivated Hot Toys to release a new Nick Fury. The first came a few years back as part of the Hot Toys Avengers line-up. I skipped it back then, and while I think the likeness to Samuel L. Jackson is improved, I’m not sure I’ll pull the trigger here either. The Avengers Fury came with a pistol, radio, rocket launcher, and the briefcase that housed the Tessaract. In comparison, the Winter Soldier Fury comes with a pistol, cell phone, arm sling, and an encrypted thumb drive to move the plot forward. Meanwhile, the price has crept up. I’ll have to keep an eye on this one. (Groan.)

You can pre-order the Hot Toys Captain America TWS Nick Fury at Sideshow Collectibles.
