We’re under a month away from the release of the long-anticipated Marvel Studio film “Avengers: Endgame” and its without question that I’ve been chomping at the bit about it here on PiercingMetal when ever any new clip or visual presents itself. For those just joining the website and its offerings, the stuff that’s come before about the film can be examined HERE. Clicking the text will launch a new tab with any reference to “Avengers: Endgame” that is currently online. Today, the fine folks at Hasbro revealed a wealth of images of the action figures that will be coming out for this film. I broke them up into sections in this post for you to peruse. Let’s begin.
I’ll start off with the Marvel Legends Series “Build-A-Figure” Collection which allows the collector to assemble a large scale Thanos based on parts of this action figure being in the packages of all the others in the series. Considering we have the packages visual I will not be typing all their names. You should also know most of them by now if you are a proper Pop Culturist like we are 🙂
The Toy Fair for 2019 begins tomorrow and as result of this massive happening for the Toy and Gaming Industry, the reveals from some of our favorite companies keep on coming. Here’s one of the latest updates from the folks over at Hasbro and without exaggeration, its super awesome. Take a look.
The Press Release:
Autobots, Decepticons and ghosts?! Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAS) and Sony Pictures Consumer Products today revealed the first-ever TRANSFORMERS-Ghostbusters Collaborative figure, the ECTO-1 ECTOTRON, available at GameStop summer of 2019 and for pre-order starting February 15 at HasbroPulse.com, GameStop and EB Games Canada. This year marks the 35th anniversary of both the TRANSFORMERS brand & the original Ghostbusters film.
When fans of the iconic Ecto-1 from the 1984 Ghostbusters movie look a little closer at this nostalgic interpretation of the car, they will be treated with a new “robot in disguise” named ECTOTRON, a converting Paranormal Investigator. The figure is packed in a G1-inspired box featuring classic tech specs and comes with its own proton pack and Slimer accessory, and converts between two modes in 22 steps – a seven inch Ecto-1 vehicle and a TRANSFORMERS robot.

Yesterday, Marvel Comics announced that 2019 was the year of their 80th Anniversary and that we could look forward to all sorts of things for our collection across the year. That notice can be found HERE for those who missed it. Hasbro Toys also shared that they would be getting in on the fun with the first two reveals from their Marvel Legends Series line of action figures. As you can see, the images are of the enigmatic telepath Professor X and the Merc With A Mouth, Deadpool. They look terrific.
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.
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.
