SDCC 2015 Hasbro Marvel Legends Wrap-Up

By Joe NUB

SDCC 2015 has come and gone so let’s take a look at the awesome Marvel Legends we having coming next year! First up are the Captain America: Civil War action figures.

  • Classic Captain America with an alternate Cap-Wolf head
  • Mockingbird
  • Taskmaster with alternate Udon head
  • Namor in his most recent New Avengers Black costume
  • Red Skull in Onslaught Armor from last year’s Axis series Build-A-Figure

A couple of points: This marks the first time in over a decade that we’ve gotten a new classic Cap figure. The last time was the very first series of Marvel Legends introduced by Toy Biz in 2002. The alternate Cap-Wolf head is a cool (but very goofy) extra included from a 90’s storyline.

For the legal reasons that this is officially slated a Civil War movie wave (Marvel Studios) and it cannot tie in to the X-Men franchise (Fox Studios), Red Skull Onslaught will not included a swappable Magneto head thus giving us the perfect classic Onslaught figure. However I hope that in the future Hasbro will find a way to give us the Magneto head in order to complete the figure that we all really want.

Next up is the Spidey Legends which gave me goosebumps the first time I saw them! Here’s the rundown:

  • Classic Venom with interchangeable tongue-sticking-out-head
  • Speed Demon
  • Spider-Gwen with alternate maskless head
  • Morbius the Living Vampire
  • Female Beetle
  • Sensational Spider-Man with swappable Carnage head and hands
  • Jack-O-Lantern
  • Absorbing Man Build-A-Figure

A few thoughts on this wave: Venom is very “early appearances”; think McFarlane, think Bagley’s style. Very cool. Speed Demon is a favorite Spidey villain of mine and I’m so glad we’re finally getting him. He seems to come packaged with the head of Silvermane in an RC car, which means ole’ Speedy is from the darkly comedic Superior Foes of Spider-Man comic┬áthat ran over the last two years. Same thing with the female version of the Beetle. She was first introduced in Captain America fighting Bucky Cap, but came into her own in ‘Foes’.

The Ben Reilly version of Spidey with the Carnage head is from a 90’s storyline and nice touch on Hasbro’s part for adding the extra parts.

The Absorbing Man BAF looks to be the greatest rendition of the character and a near perfect version. I can’t wait to get my hands on this one. -NUB
