The New Marvel Legends Figures Revealed At NYCC '15

By Brian Goldberg

On the eve of New York Comic Con 2015, Hasbro held a private event showcasing their upcoming releases. Amongst a sea of Star Wars and Transformers action figures, the Marvel 6" Legends line shone bright. The small selection of figures displayed was enough to create a raise some very important questions.

The Rogue figure creates many questions. Will there be a new X-Men line? What happened to the cancelled Rogue sculpt that was scheduled to be released with the Wolverine Puck Series? Which other characters will be in the assortment? Why is there a Magneto helmet posed next to her?

I can think of a few Legends fans that would be quite pleased with a pink-haired Diamondback. Hasbro really has this character's headsculpt and costume colors down.
