Hasbro gave us all incredible treats at their Marvel panel yesterday, and the universe got to follow along thanks to awesome sites like Marvelicious Toys, The Fwoosh, Kastors Korner and the Toy Ark.
Today, Hasbro gives us even more treats, in the form of phenomenal, pro-shot images of pretty much everything revealed at the panel and show floor yesterday! Thank you for sharing these awesome images Hasbro! This is more than we’ve ever seen from an official presentation without being at the show, it does not go unappreciated!
Marvel Legends 3.75″ Let’s call these “semi-pro shot” photos. The lone announcement for 3.75 was the exceptional Deadpool Team Rainbow figure pack featuring Deadpools in different colors.
Marvel Legends 6″ Marvel Legends 6 inch gets the most love in 2017 / 2018 by a mile. A ton of great waves announced, Deadpool, X-Men, Spider-Man, Avengers, Black Panther. But what’s in what?
Deadpool wave gets Deadpool, X-23, Deathlok, Classic Cable, Domino, Back in Black Deadpool with a Venompool Gamestop exclusive kicker.
Spider-Man wave gets Mysterio, Spider-Punk, Gwenpool, Lasher, Lizard is the build a figure.
Black Panther wave will get Namor (shown on the SDCC floor bearded, but here clean shaven), Black Bolt, Black Panther and several teased villains.
Avengers 2018 wave will start off with the fan favorite voted Songbird. Not much else is known.
Walgreens gets an exclusive Mr. Fantastic and Medusa without heels.
Legends will gets two riders, Ghostrider and Black Widow, both with sweet motorcycles.
Hydra 2-pack fans will also be treated to two Hydra soldier bodies in a 2 pack with 3-heads each. We were told at the panel that this would allow for 3,475,800 combinations, but I think their math was probably off…they seemed tired.
Marvel Legends 6″ Vintage You read that right, Vintage! A throwback to the 90’s cardbacks just like was done in the 3.75″ line with the Spider-Man Amazon box set exclusive. The series will feature classic decos of Captain America, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Black Widow, The Punisher and Wolverine.
Marvel Legends 12″ Marvel Legends 12 inch grows…hehehe…We get a Tiger Stripe Wolverine with battle damage, a movie realistic Black Panther, and two new decos on Deadpool, X-Force and Weapon X.

SAN DIEGO (July 18, 2017) — Today, on the brink of the opening of Comic-Con International: San Diego, Lexus and Marvel have announced a collaboration to pair the first-ever 2018 Lexus LC with Marvel’s dynamic Black Panther character in the highly anticipated film, Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, slated to hit theaters on Feb. 16, 2018.
Directed by Ryan Coogler, and starring Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong’o, the film follows T’Challa, who, after the events of Marvel Studios’ “Captain America: Civil War,” returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King.
“Marvel continuously captures audiences through charismatic characters and inspiring stories — the ideal fit for Lexus’ mission to craft amazing, engaging experiences,” said Brian Bolain general manager, Lexus marketing. “And the LC’s aggressive styling, high performance and agile handling are a perfect fit for the Black Panther’s quick, cat-like reflexes and superhuman feats. We’re excited to see the duo in action.”
To accompany the collaboration between Lexus and Marvel, Lexus also teamed with Marvel Custom Solutions to create an original graphic novel, with storytelling driven by famed writer Fabian Nicieza and cover illustrations by emerging graphic artists Scott “Rahzzah” Wilson and Szymon Kudranski. Centered around the balance between human and machine, the comic features the Lexus LC 500 with a new, Wakandan spin and its role in helping the Black Panther defeat a legendary villain.
Lexus and Marvel will celebrate their collaboration during Comic-Con after-hours at an exclusive Black Panther-themed event on Friday, July 21, with special performances by DJ Lulo Café and a surprise headliner. During the invite-only event, six variant covers for the graphic novel will be revealed to industry guests and comic enthusiasts.
“This campaign clicked from the get-go,” said Mindy Hamilton, Marvel’s SVP of global partnerships. “We have this bold, sophisticated hero stepping into the spotlight for the first time, and it’s been a blast to work with the Lexus team to build out a story that’ll familiarize fans with T’Challa as well as his advanced home nation of Wakanda.”
Lexus’ collaboration with Marvel is being coordinated by Lexus’ multicultural advertising agency, Walton Isaacson.
Ushering in a new era of design and engineering at Lexus, the LC 500 is expressive and stylish, with enhanced dynamic capability and performance. Additional information on the flagship coupe can be found here.
Hasbro just let the lid off of what has been brewing for them since Toy Fair. Tons of great stuff, coming from here to 2018. Tons of great waves, some excellent surprises. MUReview watched Marvelicious Toys Podcast and grabbed some screens for you, but please, go check them out, they are fantastic!

SDCC news is at a boiling point, and it’s only going to bubble over even more today, but let’s start with what is closest to my heart. Marvel Legends, 3.75″, direct from the Hasbro booth. Special thanks to my inside set of eyes, dude is a super hero, but I don’t want him to be assassinated for sending me awesome photos, so he shall remain nameless.
Let’s check out images of the 3.75″ Marvel Legends, Rainbow Deadpool Box Set! The set features 5 Deadpool figures, all the same mold and features per figure, but we get a red, a green, a blue, a purple, and a yellow. The figures are repaints, but awesome repaints nonetheless (imagine the Deadpool dioramas!) and I can’t wait to get hands on to share em with you fine folks out there in Interwebs land.
A few notes. Fall release. Not exclusive, main line!!!
