New York Comic Con kicks off tomorrow, but Hasbro had some major reveals for Marvel Legends fans last night at their annual “Twas the Night Before…” party and they sent along the full details and photos of the reveals in a press release today. It had previously been announced at SDCC that Marvel Legends would shift to a movie-based toy line in 2014 and Hasbro revealed the full line up to their Spider-Man Infinite Legends wave and some of their Captain America Infinite Legends waves at the “Twas the Night Before…” party.
Hasbro will draw influence from both the comics and the upcoming film “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” for their Captain America Infinite Legends collection of 6-inch Marvel Legends action figures. The series will include a Build-A-Figure of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Mandroid from the comics. The Mandroid figure is built upon the Iron Man Legends Iron Monger body.
The Captain America Infinite Legends collection will be split into two waves, which are scheduled to ship in the spring and fall of 2014 respectively timed to the theatrical and Blu-ray/DVD release of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”
The first wave will include the newly revealed Hydra Agent figure. Captain America’s nemesis Red Skull will also be part of the series and is said to include the same Build-A-Figure piece as the Hydra Agent. Red Skull and Hydra Agent have both had Marvel Legend figures in the past, but these new versions look far superior. The two figures will share a Build-A-Figure piece, so collectors can choose to skip either figure and still be able to complete their Mandroid.
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 4, 2014.
Marvel Legends collectors can also look forward to Hasbro’s Spider-Man Infinite Legends collection in spring 2014 to tie in with the theatrical release of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” The series will include movie-based Amazing Spider-Man and Electro figures. Fans can also collect comic-based figures of Black Cat, Beetle, Carnage and Superior Spider-Man. Pieces for a Build-A-Figure of Ultimate Green Goblin will be spread across the wave.
“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” is scheduled to be released in theaters on May 2, 2014.
