On Monday, Hasbro revealed some long-awaited MCU figures for their Marvel Legends toy line. First up is the Iron Man vs. Thanos Infinity Sage 2-pack.
That’s a whole lot of accessories and alternate heads/hands to take in, so let’s check out Tony Stark first.
I know most of us have way too many Iron Men in our collection already, but the Robert Downey Jr. head sculpt on this one is great. Then there’s the battle-damaged face and the snapping hand, which allows you to recreate one of the greatest scenes that the MCU will ever have.
I’m not a huge fan of the blade and energy shield, but it’s still cool they added those in (along with the standard repulsor blasts), as well.
The other figure in this set is one of many Marvel Legends MCU Thanos releases, but this one has the most accessories we’ve ever gotten–including a whopping four head sculpts. One of those heads is also the first time (to my knowledge) that we’ve gotten a Marvel Legends figure in the middle of being “dusted.”
I really wish they’d used some type of wash for the paint applications on Thanos’ skin, but at least the armor looks decent.
The set (which is available now for preorder with an expected arrival in August) will retail for $59.99, which I thought might be tad too expensive for most collectors. Clearly I was wrong since it’s already sold out at Amazon.
The other big reveal from today was Marvel Legends’ first MCU Odin figure, which features a facial portrait that’s supposed to look like Anthony Hopkins. Unfortunately, it ended up looking like Hide the Pain Harold with an eyepatch, instead.
Lest you or my editors think I’m just being snarky, check out this side-by-side comparison. The similarities are unsettling.
If you are a big Harold Meme fan (or don’t mind your MCU Odin looking almost nothing like the actor who portrayed him), then the figure will retail for $24.99 and is available now for preorder with an expected arrival in September.
Unlike the Iron Man vs. Thanos 2-pack, it has not sold out yet (for obvious reasons).
