SDCC Marvel Legends The Raft Exclusive Official Pics
By Joe NUB
A few weeks ago, we reported the leak of new images revealing a potential SDCC exclusive action figure set, which has now been confirmed. Hasbro will be releasing a six pack of six inch Marvel Legends figures which will retail for $119.99 next week in San Diego.
This Raft prison boxed set features five super-villians: Abomination, Enchantress, Dreadknight, Purple Man, and Sandman, with only Spider-Man to take them on. The set is a huge deal for me since it’s the first time we’re getting 6″ versions of Enchantress, Dreadknight, and Purple Man, as well as this being Hasbro’s first Sandman figure (we’re not counting the movie version released in 2007). Despite the Abomination about to be the Build-A-Figure for the upcoming Captain America Marvel Legends wave, they’ve decided to release him here as well with darker green paint scheme; and Spider-Man is a re-use of last year’s “Pizza Spidey” figure with a new head.
It’s also a nice touch that the box opens up to reveal two floors of the prison, and the villains printed on the top their, Electro, The Eel, and Hobgoblin have Legends figures coming themselves later this year. Very nice touch, Hasbro!
For those like myself who won’t be attending SDCC a short supply will be available on HasbroToyShop.com after the Con. -Nub
