On Friday afternoon, Hasbro Pulse’s 2021 Fan Fest livestream revealed a plethora of new Marvel Legends figures. Let’s take a look at what Ryan Ting (Hasbro Brand Marketing), Dwight Stall (Hasbro Product Design), and Dan Yun (Hasbro Brand Marketing) had to show us:
Infinity Saga Thor
This deluxe iteration of Thor features the God of Thunder as he appeared in Avengers: Endgame. Both Mjölnir and Stormbreaker have an electrified appearance that can be enhanced with the lightning effects that are included.
The figure will retail for $24.99 and is available now for preorder with an expected arrival in September.
In addition to that sweet looking space cape, Quasar comes with a brand new head sculpt, gauntlets, yellow power effects, and an alternate set of flying hands. I’m not a fan of this character, but folks who are should be happy to finally see him hit the Marvel Legends line with such a great looking figure.
No preorder information is available yet, but Quasar will be a Walgreens exclusive (EB Games exclusive in Canada) and retail for $22.99 when he’s released later this summer.
Marvel Legends Iron Man Wave
Next up is a new Marvel Legends Iron Man Wave featuring few figures we knew already knew about along with some surprises–including one of the most unlikely/awesome Build-A-Figures ever.
This figure was revealed back December, but it’s nice to get a better look at it now–especially with the flame effects.
Ultron will retail for $22.99 and is available now for preorder with an expected arrival in August.
It’s not easy being green, but this guy should see a bit of a sales bump due to being an army builder. The figure also has an interesting backstory, especially if you’re into Iron Man lore.
The Vault Guardsman will retail for $22.99 and is available now for preorder with an expected arrival in August.
Hologram Iron Man
I wasn’t planning on getting anything from this wave, but my love/weakness for the color blue almost made me break on this sweet looking figure.
Hologram Iron Man will retail for $22.99 and is available now for preorder with an expected arrival in August.
Stealth Iron Man
This beautiful recreation of a classic Iron Man look comes with an alternate Tony Stark head (which features one of his more daring facial hair phases). There are also pegs in both his feet and hands for the repulsor blast effects.
Stealth Iron Man will retail for $22.99 and is available now for preorder with an expected arrival in August.
Riri Williams finally makes her Marvel Legends debut with a great looking figure featuring double pinless articulation in her elbows and knees. She also comes with the same repulsor blast effects as Stealth Iron, but you’ll be able to augment them a pair of conical smoke effects, as well.
Ironheart will retail for $22.99 and is available now for preorder with an expected arrival in August.
I’ll admit right off the bat that I have no idea who Darkstar is. I’m guessing that a lot of other folks are in the same boat, hence why she’s required for the BAF’s torso.
I’m sure she’s got some fans out there somewhere, though. If you’re one of them, then Darkstar will retail for $22.99 and is available now for preorder with an expected arrival in August.
Modular Iron Man
Everyone’s favorite Iron Man armor from the ’90s gets a Marvel Legends figure featuring a brand new sculpt and completely pinless articulation. He’s not needed for the BAF, but I have a feeling that the hardcore Iron Man fans will still find a way to make room for this one on their shelves.
Modular Iron Man will retail for $22.99 and is available now for preorder with an expected arrival in August.
Build-A-Figure Ursa Major
Of course a Marvel Legends wave I have no interest in has a Build-A-Figure that I desperately want.
Even if you don’t know anything about Ursa Major (or only have a passing familiarity like I do), it’s a beautifully sculpted and highly articulated GIANT FREAKING BEAR. There are a million canon and non-canon ways to have this figure be a standout feature of your toy shelf.
Guess I’ll be trawling eBay for parts this fall. In the meantime, let’s take a look the lone upcoming role play item revealed for the Marvel Legends line before digging into some of the news, teases, and surprising omissions from the panel.
Doctor Strange Eye of Agamotto
Not really my thing, but definitely all types of cool. If anyone feels compelled to get me one as a birthday and/or wedding gift this summer, I certainly wouldn’t turn it down. I’ll even wear it out in public.*
The Eye of Agamotto will retail for $49.99 and is available now for preorder with an expected arrival in October.

News, Teases, and Miscellaneous
- There will be more MCU figures this year (some of which have already leaked, which we’ll discuss below).
- Packaging for the HasLab Marvel Legends Sentinel was revealed. It’s hard to tell from the picture, but the box is absolutely massive.
- The next HasLab project will be something involving the Fantastic Four. (The early/obvious guess is Galactus).
- There will be another X-Men: Age of Apocalypse wave this fall. The team also revealed a digital render of the upcoming AoA Sabertooth.
- Despite some recent reveals and multiple leaks, the Hasbro team did not officially reveal or discuss the upcoming Marvel Legends waves for the Shang-Chi movie or The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. You can still check out some unofficial pictures, however, at the links above (courtesy of Rektangular).
- The night before the Friday’s event, Hasbro held a livestream for Hasbro Pulse Premium members. Not much was revealed, but they did show digital renderings of an upcoming X-Force Domino figure and a Cannonball figure with legs instead of blast effects.
Marvel Legends 3.75″ Scale Retro Line
Oh yeah…almost forgot about the 5
POS POA line.
Look, I’m totally fine if you like these. In fact, I can legitimately see the appeal. But a few years ago Hasbro had a fantastic line (Marvel Universe) of super articulated 3.75″ scale figures. Seeing time and resources that could be going into that diverted into these extremely basic (and similarly priced) figures is all types of frustrating.
If you insist on collecting them, however, the two first two waves are pictured above. Ryan also explained that buying the complete box set of Marvel Legends Retro 2-packs on Hasbro Pulse (pictured below) will give you an exclusive Black Panther/Iron Man set on foil cardbacks. Each figure will also be marked as a “1st Edition” (ugh).
The entire set retails for $79.99 and is available exclusively on Hasbro Pulse. As for the single carded/general release figures, Wave 3 was revealed today. There are no preorder links yet, but the figures are likely to retail for $9.99 and should be available later this summer.
