Can we start a process of giving gifts for Halloween? If not, let’s start that up since a few awesome things have manifested just in time for the holiday and among them are these awesome Marvel Legends action figures by Hasbro. This series is focused on the upcoming Marvel Studios feature “Black Panther” which is coming in February 2018 and has found trailers being promoted in posts on this website like on THIS LINK. There are some cool inclusions in this set and Hasbro continues to keep the Marvel Legends Series as one of my favorite lines of action figures. The images below come from official resources and with the packaging being clearly labeled, I didn’t point out each and every character. Here we go.
Back in May I shared the news about a convention known as HASCON (if you missed that item, just click HERE to be up to speed). So the reason I’m posting this is to let you know that for a limited time you can get this special X-Force version of Deadpool from the Hasbro store. Let’s take a look at him both in and out of the package using their official photos. Chimichanga time!!!!
The first annual HasCon has come and went and while we didn’t attend we’ve been keeping a close bit of scrutiny on any reveals from the event and with that being said there were several brand new action figures from “The Transformers” line. To say that this is a mega-popular license for Hasbro Toys would be an understatement so what I’ve done is shared the images of the figures along with their awesome artwork. I will not be saying much since you don’t need your “oohs” and “ahhs” interrupted. Here we go.
During the SDCC the fine folks at Hasbro Toys revealed that a brand new awesome set of Marvel Legends series was coming our way and this group will bring back memories to collectors of a certain age since its an homage to the original series and packaging that surrounded some truly mighty action figures. I don’t think that I need to mention who they are since the images are clearly marked. Let’s take a look at Wave One of the Vintage Series.
As previously discussed, the San Diego Comic Con is heading right at us and it is loaded with special edition exclusives from the worlds biggest companies. I’ve just received some press from the folks repping Playmates Toys (who we’ve written about extensively during our Toy Fair adventures over the years) as they present their own exclusive items. Check out the images and press copy below that they shared with me. I’ll close up with some thoughts of course.
