SDCC: Hasbro Marvel Panel

What does Hasbro have in store action figure wise for Marvel? Find out here!




Hasbro confirms what we broke on Thursday: Marvel Universe and Marvel Legends will be ending at the end of the year. HOWEVER, also confirmed is the lines will just be rebranded and renamed. 3.75" figures will be now in Avengers line for 2014 and the 6" figures will be in assortment of waves based around the movies coming out next year (Amazing Spider-Man, Captain America, and Guardians of the Galaxy).

 

- Slides are shown of the current Marvel Universe Wave out now (Captain America, Mysterio, Rhino, and Elektra). The next wave: Abomination (with A-Bomb variant), Black & White Iron Man, Baron Zemo, and Cloak/Dagger (unknown which will be the common and the variants of the pair).

 

The final wave of Marvel Universe figures are shown: Northstar/Aurora (again unknown which will be the common or variant of the pair), X-Force Nightcrawler, Black Knight, and Omega Red. Not a single word on the Death-Head figure teased last year.

 

The final wave of Marvel Universe three-packs are shown: the Uncanny X-Men (Colossus with Juggernaut powers, Emma Frost, and Cyclops) and Asgard (Valkyrie, Thor, and Executioner).

 

Teaser for Avengers line in 2014 is shown. The first two known figures for the line will be Grim Reaper and Hyperion. It is said at the panel the later figure is based off a failed mold Hasbro intended to give to Stryfe.

 

-  The next waves of Iron Man 3 combiners are shown along with an Amazon Exclusive pack of Iron Man figures from the various movies and an exclusive Tony Stark figure.

 

- The first wave of Thor: The Dark World 3.75" figures are shown: Thor, Loki, Dark Elf, another Thor figure, and ????? (which will be revealed tomorrow at the Hasbro booth). 

 

-  They move onto Marvel Legends with the about to be released Wolverine Legends Wave (Sabretooth, Cyclops, Wolverine, and Emma Frost). No variants of Phoenix Cyclops or Rogue shown, it appears rumors of cancellation of these variants are confirmed.

 

Wave 2 of Marvel Legends are shown: Black Panther, Scarlet Spider, Hawkeye (variant classic costume), Wrecker (Bulldozer variant), and Jean Grey (Phoenix variant).

 

Wave 3 will be Thor, Agent Venom, Radioactive Man (Tiger Shark variant), Moonstone (Songbird variant), and Blizzard (Batroc Ze Leaper is the variant). Build-A-Figure for Wave 3 will be Jubilee and Hasbro teases we will be seeing more teen heroes in future waves.

 

- Captain America: Legends is shown and they include; Captain America (Marvel NOW! costume), Baron Zemo (comic), Red Skull (movie), A.I.M. soldier (movie? That's what Hasbro lists the A.I.M. figure as), and promises a figure of the Winter Soldier (comic). No word what the Build-A-Figure will be other than Hasbro teasing it be also an army builder.

 

- Amazing Spider-Man Legends figures so far shown and include: Boomerang (comic), Ultimate Beetle (comic), and Black Cat (comic). Build-A-Figure will be Ultimate Green Goblin.

 

- A teaser for Guardians of the Galaxy Legends is shown and it's a picture of Starlord in his Annihilation costume.

 

Panel ends. Stayed tuned for further updates for pictures from the panel.

So, the Marvel Legends line will essentially continue - just not as Marvel Legends?

Pretty much. It's Hasbro "re-branding" the line as another name. The same with Marvel Universe to Avengers. It looks like with the Grim Reaper and Hyperion figures shown that'll be keeping the same articulation as those figures and not de-evolving into lack of articulation in the Avengers Assemble line (which is being merged into this line).

Out of curiosity, what's the distribution between variants for Marvel Legends? Are they roughly equal, or will one be significantly rarer than the original?

Marvel Universe they're 50/50. You have an excellent chance of finding either one in the wild. Marvel Legends? Good luck.

Marvel Legends are supposed to "running changes" one character will be released when the wave is first at retail, then it is replaced later by another character...
