Marvel Legends 12 inch line started of strong in 2016, addressing three marquee Marvel characters in Captain America, Iron Man, and Spider-Man. In 2017, the line brought out some big guns and continued to show off how nice figures in 12 inch scale can look. The roster included Deadpool (two ways), Hulk, Thor, black suit Spidey, and just at the edge of 2018, Tiger Stripe Wolverine is hitting shelves. Thanks to some good friends at Hasbro, we got a look at the 2016 figures this year, and a few of the 2017 figures. The 2016 figures are fantastic. The 2017 figures show the line maturing, 2018 offers some nice promise. Let’s check out my favorites of the year.
Way back in 2009, Hasbro started a 3.75″ action figure line featuring everyone’s favorite Marvel heroes. I took notice immediately, and it didn’t take me long to develop my love of Marvel Universe figures into a place called MUReview.net. In case you wondered what the upper case M and U stood for, there it is. Maybe a little silly on my part, I couldn’t have imagined how many people would just call it MOOO Review. Fast forward to 2017, and who would have thought, our little corner of the Internet has outlasted at least the name of the toy line that launched it. We’ve even gone on to expand what our name means, covering far more than just 3.75″ Marvel figures over the years, covering far more than even just Marvel over the years. We’ve talked movies, video games, DC, Star Wars, Transformers. But it all ties back to Marvel Universe and the 3 and 3/4 inch figures of that line. 3 and 3/4 inch figures Hasbro managed to pump out quite a few of in 2017, quite a few really nice ones at that!
In 2017, we had the honor, and the privilege to review almost every single Marvel Legends figure released. There were, a lot of Marvel Legends 6″ figures released in 2017. Choosing just a few to showcase as our favorites for the year was a daunting task, honestly. At one point, I had a top 10 with numbers, but I can’t do it. I really love each of these figures. The design team at Hasbro is doing a hilariously good job at creating figures that look great, move great, and they are packing a ton of value in every box they put on shelves. The only thing I can really complain about is the figures I haven’t gotten out of the line that I want, or remakes of those figures. There is so much to love in Hasbro’s Marvel Legends line, so I’ll just get right to it. If you click the figure title, it’ll take you to our full review of that figure. Again, this is just a randomly ordered list of my favorite Marvel Legends 6″ figures of 2017…OK, the figure all the way at the bottom is definitely my favorite….
