PiercingMetal Thoughts: This sounds and looks cool to me based on the description and the visuals that Hasbro PR provided to me but I will say that I did expect any action figure of the Hulk to tower over the other action figures in the line. He is a whole lot bigger than the conventional superhero and supervillain after all. Now while there was no price point listed as this an early announcement, I feel that its safe to say that it might run fans as much as $25. I am using the neighborhood Gamestop observances as a gauge of this. These are some of my favorite line of action figures but I am not too up on the video game “Avengers” just yet to see which ones I like. I still need to get myself a Stan Lee and Nighthawk one from a recent issuing. Guess I better his Amazon.com as well since I am not finding either of them in my travels. See you next time and get ready for a whole lot of Toy Fair reveals as PiercingMetal will be heading there for our 10th Annual visit as Media. Pretty cool to be honest. Now back to the regularly scheduled programming.
Seeing this latest offering from Hasbro really brought back some memories for me because I had SOOOO much of the original “Star Wars” toys it would make your head spin. Sadly, most of these didn’t withstand the sands of time but I know there is a case of the action figures somewhere in my storage container but I digress. This latest vehicle comes from what we’ve seen in the amazing series “The Mandalorian”. You might remember that Hasbro revealed an action figure for him not too long ago and if this is news to you just click HERE to see that post about him. Now let’s take a look at the Imperial Troop Transport and the images that were provided for it from the company.
STAR WARS: THE VINTAGE COLLECTION IMPERIAL TROOP TRANSPORT Vehicle: The IMPERIAL TROOP TRANSPORT was used to move the Empire’s soldiers from location to location. This STAR WARS: THE VINTAGE COLLECTION IMPERIAL TROOP TRANSPORT vehicle is inspired by the vehicles seen in THE MANDALORIAN live-action TV series on Disney Plus. With realistic detail including a removable roof, opening doors, fold-down seating, swiveling turret, and blaster storage, this vehicle can be displayed in action figure and vehicle collections. Available for pre-order at Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Dorkside Toys, Big Bad Toy Store, Entertainment Earth. (HASBRO/Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $69.99/Available: Spring 2020)
Back in December, we helped share the news about Hasbro’s upcoming “Black Widow” series of action figures, and if you didn’t see that post based on all the rest of the constant offerings here at the Media Command HQ, just click HERE because you are going to want to order this stuff before the movie hits the theaters. Now, on the topic of movies – There is also a “Venom” sequel coming out and this brand-new reveal from the famous toymaker will make you appreciate it all the more. Check it out.

The Scoop: The Marvel Legends Series of action figures from Hasbro Toys remains one of my favorite lines of collectible figures based on how great they look and how many different characters from the Marvel Universe of comics and film are brought to the consumer. With the world recently enjoying the first Official Trailer for the 2020 film “Black Widow”, it makes perfect sense for the folks at Hasbro to dedicate a line of these popular figures to the film. To my knowledge, most of the characters will appear in the film and collecting a complete set will give you a Build-a-Figure of the mighty Crimson Dynamo. Let’s take a look at some of the Hasbro provided images and I’ll close out with some additional editorial later on.
By now you are either a subscriber to Disney+ or wishing you were because “The Mandalorian” series is going over like gangbusters and that makes sharing this latest reveal from the fine folks at Hasbro all the more awesome. The 6 inch action figure will become a part of their “Star Wars: The Black Series” of highly poseable figures and you are surely going to want to add it to your collection. This appears to be available for pre-order at Best Buy via THIS LINK, and I’ve also added a code to order a different version of this character on Amazon.com since that helps us keep the lights on. Images are provided by their media team so enjoy.
