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.
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.
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.
As an action figure fan, some of my favorite stuff comes from the folks at Hasbro and their “Marvel Legends” line of 6-inch figures. They’re highly poseable and there is a wide assortment to choose from. In the coming weeks, fans of these figures who are heading to the Comic Con International: San Diego will have the chance to purchase this exclusive set of “The Defenders”. Check out the full press and the provided images.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This looks like a great set and don’t be put off by the price if you are heading to SDCC and entertaining purchasing this one. Individual figures can run up to $25 each for the Marvel Legends line and believe me there are other figures out there that are much higher. That’s all I will add about this since we aren’t hitting the convention. There are more exclusives to share with you so on that note I say, “what do you think of these and will you be purchasing?”. Chime in down below.
