Marvel Legends fans gathered in room 25 ABC on Saturday afternoon to see all of the new figures that will be coming in the second half of the year/early next year.
One of the highlights every year, the Hasbro Marvel Legends team had reason to celebrate in 2018. It has been one of the most successful years they have ever had. More figures than ever, all featuring improved articulation and face-printing tech that makes them better than ever. And they show no signs of slowing down either. Fans are both excited and worried about keeping up, to be honest. Let's take a look at what the Marvel Legends team has coming up!
First they showed off the kids' lines. Black Panther, Avengers, Ant-Man and The Wasp, and Mighty Muggs! These lines are great for kids and collectors, and new Muggs include Venom, Wolverine, and Into the Spider-Verse Muggs for Miles Morales, Spider-Gwen, and Spider-Ham. There will also be a full line of Into the Spider-Verse kids' figures.
Marvel Legends then took over. Hercules is coming, based on his updated look. He will be out in 2019. They showed off their offerings for Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years line, hitting now. Then the second wave of Black Panther figures were shown. It is the first all-MCU wave in Legends history. That will be out in December.
An Ultron Marvel Studios figure is coming out. Fully painted this time. This is the old build a figure from before. Archangel is coming as well, as an exclusive at GameStop and Entertainment Earth. A.I.M. gets a Marvel Legends two-pack, looking so cool. Army builders unite!
A new Magik is coming exclusively to Walgreens, and she looks fantastic. Target gets an Into the Spider-Verse two-pack with Miles and Gwen, and Walmart gets a Luke Cage and Claire Temple Netflix two-pack (it's official now!).
Vintage-carded wave two will include classic Ant-Man and Wasp (the old Wasp from forever ago), Black Panther, Scarlet Spider, classic Vision, and classic Hawkeye.
2019 will bring a new Spider-Man wave with a new symbiote suit, Red Goblin, updated Black Cat, the first ever Silver Sable, and a build a figure of Kingpin! X-Men in 2019 will include Professor X (standing!), Skullbuster (deep cut), teased a Forge, Blink from the Exiles, and a build a figure of… to be revealed later. And that it is very big.
A Deadpool on a motorbike, and teases for upcoming figures closed us out.Can you decipher those clues?
And as a final reveal… we are in fact getting Charles in his chair! Along with a classic '90s Gambit!
Overall, this was a panel of great Marvel Legends reveals that should keep us collectors super busy figure hunting for the foreseeable future. Check out all of the reveals below, and stay tuned for even more collectibles from the show floor throughout the weekend here on BC!
