Yesterday I had popped into my local comic book shop to see what was on the racks and needed to be a part of my collection when I noticed that the latest group of Hasbro’s “Marvel Legends” series of action figures had arrived. This amounts to their second wave of vintage characters in retro packaging and I quickly snapped some images from them so I could share with those of you who collect and might not be aware of them yet. Take a look.
In keeping pace with some of the video game trailers that we find being released, here is the recently revealed “movie trailer” for the “Kingdom Hearts III” Fantasy/Adventure game. I hope you enjoy it if you like this stuff and I’ve followed the clip with some background and closing editorial. Take a look.
About The Game: Kingdom Hearts III is an action role-playing game developed and published by Square Enix for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It is the twelfth installment in the Kingdom Hearts series, a sequel to Kingdom Hearts II, and the final chapter in the Dark Seeker saga. Set after the events of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, returning protagonist Sora is joined by Donald Duck, Goofy, King Mickey and Riku in their search for the seven Guardians of Light and the “Key to Return Hearts” as they attempt to thwart the restored Xehanort’s plan to bring about a second Keyblade War. Their journey has them cross paths with characters and visit worlds based on different Disney and Pixar properties. (c/o Wiki)
PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I’ve mentioned on a few posts, I am not as much the gamer as I am the comic book collector and cinephile but with our Pop Culture side growing and growing in terms of conventions and topical coverage, I will always post a trailer clip along with a purchase code to Amazon.com to keep it all in motion. This does look like a fun game if its going to bring all of these great characters together. What do you think about this? Have you played any iteration of the game yet? Do chime in down below in the comments section.
Here’s a little visual treat from the fine folks at Hasbro Toys who have recently unveiled the first wave of Marvel Legends Series action figures for the upcoming Marvel Studios film “Captain Marvel”. Here’s the press release about it all.
The Press Release:
When the universe is in need of a skilled and confident leader, there is no better hero to take command than CAPTAIN MARVEL! CAROL DANVERS becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Imagine the action, missions, and adventures of CAPTAIN MARVEL with dolls, role play items, and more inspired by the upcoming CAPTAIN MARVEL movie part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that includes AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR!
I’ve just received word that these two brand new sets of Hasbro’s “Marvel Legends Series” action figures is up for pre-order on popular outlets like Entertainment Earth and Amazon.com – There is a first wave of “Spider-Man” figures and a second wave of “Black Panther” figures. Each are around 6″ plus in height and are collectible for sure. They remain some of my favorite figures. Let’s take a look at the provided images.
This second series of BP figures include a Dora Milaje, Erik Killmonger, T’Chaka, 2 different Black Panthers and Ulysses Klaue. Each includes a piece of M’Baku, leader of the Gorilla worshiping tribe from the film.
As noted in a few other posts, we were heading to NY Comic Con and actually as you read this one we are deep in the mix of the event. I didn’t want to leave out the visuals of the Star Trek items that will be found this year at the Eaglemoss Collections booth so check them out.
