Hasbro revealed some new 6″ Marvel Legends figures during their panel coverage today. If there was one theme to most of the reveals it was that the BAFs are seemingly top secret!
We got confirmation of of the recent leak for Captain America Wave 2 – featuring another Cap, a new Iron Man, & Black Panther from Civil War mixed in with Nuke, Nick Fury, & the Red Guardsman. While the BAF was leaked for this as well, it was not “revealed” as the panel as it’s still a pretty big Civil War spoiler. Pics from the floor seem to indicate that Nuke will feature two heads and Nick Fury will sport alt heads to let him be used as an army builder.
We got a sneak peak of Captain America Wave 3 featuring his new Secret Wars costume in the comics (with a pretty sweet throwing shield hand) and the Civil War Scarlet Witch. Future figures and that BAF will be revealed at a later date.
Spider-Man Legends Wave 2 will feature a new “teenage male” buck that be used for the two Ultimate Spider-Men: Peter Parker & Miles Morales. That wave will also feature a new classic Hobgoblin & Silk. Again, we’ll need to see a few more figures at a later date as well as the BAF.
X-Men Legends will be an all-mutant wave featuring the Rogue first shown last year, a new Deadpool (w/ unmasked head), Havok, Iceman, Phoenix, Kitty Pryde, & Cable. The Onslaught head is sitting with Kitty this time around, so we’re not sure where that will be packaged, but it’s great to see it still included. This wave was heavily rumored along with it’s BAF, but again Hasbro chose to hold back on that announcement.
And, finally (are you saving your money?) Dr Strange will also have a wave for his film release that is slated to include a BAF Dormammu (a redeco from last year’s SDCC exclusive), a great new Iron Fist, Nico, and both comic & film versions of the titular Doctor.
But wait! There’s more! Some store exclusives were also announced.
- Walmart: Falcon & Winter Soldier (Unmasked) from Civil War 2pk.
- Target: War Machine from Civil War & Iron Man Mk27 (that’s the orange/blue disco armor) 2pk.
- Toys R Us: Sam Wilson as Captain America, Marvel NOW Vision, & a Kate Bishop Hawkeye 3pk.
- Walgreens: Namor (previously revealed last year).
- Walgreens: Punisher (Jim Lee Version).
You can check out pictures from the booth at Action Figure Insider & ToyArk. I recommend those as the press pics aren’t terribly great this time around, Hasbro seeming to have opted for heavily photoshopped atmosphere shots instead of some nice clean white background pics like normal.
