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.
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.
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 🙂
As I write this, the American International Toy Fair is around the corner and some of the companies are offering up sneak peeks at the lines being debuted at this massive trade only event. I’ve featured the Hasbro Toys action figures from their “Marvel Legends” series on numerous occasions so I was happy to see some advance reveals for the “Venom” and “Deadpool” series. As you know, each of these characters will be featured in film this year and I can hardly wait. Let’s take a look.
I’ll start of with what was revealed from the “Venom” line. In this we get a couple of the 6″ action figures that are a part of the “Marvel Legends Series” and two of the larger figures.
Can we start a process of giving gifts for Halloween? If not, let’s start that up since a few awesome things have manifested just in time for the holiday and among them are these awesome Marvel Legends action figures by Hasbro. This series is focused on the upcoming Marvel Studios feature “Black Panther” which is coming in February 2018 and has found trailers being promoted in posts on this website like on THIS LINK. There are some cool inclusions in this set and Hasbro continues to keep the Marvel Legends Series as one of my favorite lines of action figures. The images below come from official resources and with the packaging being clearly labeled, I didn’t point out each and every character. Here we go.
