NYCC 2013: Hasbro Marvel Legends Captain America Reveals

Hasbro NYCC Marvel Legends Captain America Reveals

We published some Instapics from the Hasbro shindig on the eve of NYCC, and they were kind enough to follow up with official press pictures. To kick us off, here’s the info on the upcoming products from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which should hit shelves in January, a quarter before the April opening of the movie.

I’m most excited to see the Marvel Legends products, which are rebranded to the movies this year. So: Marvel Captain America Infinite Series 6-Inch Legends. That may not roll of the tongue like Marvel Legends does, but if it gets more product to shelves and in our hands, then I’m all for it.

The back of the packaging (see the Instapics) shows the Mandroid BAF plus army builders / villains to encourage multiple purchases. The first wave includes a Marvel Now! Captain America, Agents of HYDRA (Red Skull / Hydra Agent swap) and Soldiers of AIM (Baron Zemo / AIM Soldier swap). Can’t wait!

New Details on Marvel Legends Captain America Line from Previews

SDCC 2013 - Marvel Legends - Captain America Legends Previews October 2013 - Captain America

This month’s edition of Previews has got some great new details on the upcoming Captain America waves of Marvel Legends. As we heard from the Hasbro Marvel team at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Legends is getting rebranded to the movie properties in 2014. And just as Cap was the “First Avenger,” his line of Legends will be the first rebranded, as “Captain America: The Winter Soldier – Infinity Legends” – yeah, that’s a mouthful.

And that’s not all. Previews reports a five figure assortment split over two waves, with a Build-a-Figure, starting in January. If this is the group we saw at SDCC, then it’s comic book versions of Baron Zemo and a Marvel Now Captain America (not shown above), plus movie versions of the Winter Soldier, Black Widow, and Captain America. That leaves the BAF still to be revealed. Price per figure is still creeping up, at $22.99.

Thanks to Mark Hernandez at the Marvel Toylines group for the Previews info.
