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.
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.
We’ve been fans of the “Merc With A Mouth”, Deadpool here at the PiercingMetal Command HQ since we first learned of his existence back in “New Mutants” #98 (which came out in 1991 for those hunters). He seems to be everywhere nowadays in more comics, on film and on numerous toys such as these cool offerings coming soon from Hasbro Toys.
