We’re entrenched at the happenings at the currently running New York Comic Con and we’ve just learned about the brand new Marvel Legends Series action figures that are coming from our friends over at Hasbro Toys. Coming at the diehard collector in the coming months will be a Deadpool Series, a Fantastic Four series and a wonderful edition to the conventional series of highly posable action figures. Let’s take a look.
Starting off with the Deadpool Legends Series, we have a brand-new Deadpool in a Blue X-Men uniform along with Sunspot and Warpath. Sure those two might be New Mutants, but let’s never forget that Deadpool first appeared in their comic book.

[MESSAGE FROM THE CLERGY] We wish to inform you that the Ghost Papa III Super 7 Reaction figure is now available.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: It’s without question that Super7 has been pulling out all the stops when it comes to the coolness of their ReAction figure line. So far we’ve gotten a whole bunch of Iron Maiden Eddies, a Motorhead Warpig and the Slayer Minotaur on top of the amazing Misfits Jerry Only. If you are a collector of all things Metal, Punk and Rock, you will need to allot some budget over to a Super7 account. For those who are just seeing this kind of stuff for the first time and feel they seem familiar then you are not imagining things. These figures are designed in the style of the original Kenner “Star Wars” action figures which if you are a collector of a certain age you might have a box of them hidden in a closet somewhere. This is one of my favorite lines and every year at Toy Fair I look forward to seeing what they have coming down the pike when I attend this convention. I’ll close up now but I wonder what you folks think about this brand new collectible. Will you be purchasing? Chime in down below in the comments.
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.
It’s not always easy to rally behind the Kickstarters that we hear about almost every day here at the Metal Media Command HQ, but this one was hard to avoid since it speaks to the diehard collectors and folks who count on my alerts in our Pop Culture features. I’ve just received the details on this awesome Transformers item “UNICRON”. Take a look down below to the press copy and the provided images.
