If you’ve been following the website over the last couple of weeks, you already know that I’ve been letting the Pop Culture side of the fence take over as the massive Comic Con International: San Diego gets closer to happening. Part of the event will actually begin tomorrow and you’ll want to click HERE to see all of the posts that have been loaded onto the website so far. Now its time to share this super cool news from the fine folks at Hasbro Toys so do dig in.
The Press Release:
In celebration of 80 years of Marvel Comics, we’re thrilled to share that Hasbro has created some amazing comic book cover images featuring a variety of figures from the new Marvel Legends 80th Anniversary line, including characters such as Iron Man, Thor, Storm, Colossus, and more. During San Diego Comic-Con later this week, the covers that feature the Marvel Legends X-Men figures will be made available for free for guests during two poster giveaway sessions at the Hasbro Booth (#3213)! Giveaway sessions will take place Friday at 10:30am and Saturday at 4:30pm. During each session two of the four posters will be distributed. Fans can swing by the booth during these times to collect all four to create one large X-Men poster. In addition, the Marvel Legends 80th Anniversary figures will be available for pre-order on Thursday, 7/18.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve discussed the Marvel Legends Series of action figures from Hasbro on this website time and time again and they are probably one of my very favorite lines of action figures. I love the idea of these comic book covers reveals and especially the one that represents the classic “X-Men” #1 from 1991. Some fans might remember when Jim Lee launched a second volume for the classic heroes and this issue brought in numbers that were as yet unseen in comic book sales. There were four distinct covers that you connected for the same single issue and one had all four of these images as a single foldout image. Considering that I was one of those comic book madmen, I have about “10” copies of each somewhere in a long box in my storage unit but I digress. Stay tuned for more from the SDCC reveals as we are made aware of them. I’ll close out with the visual of the original “X-Men” V2 #1 cover in full. See you next time and by all means let me know what you think of this stuff.
