Marvel Legends: New Age of Apocalypse wave revealed!

Even if you don’t like X-Men: Age of Apocalypse, this fantastic wave of figures is still worth a look.

Last week, Hasbro’s Marvel Legends team hit us with an unexpected livestream and some even more unexpected toy reveals.

Marvel Legends

Age of Apocalypse/Colossus BAF Wave

This isn’t the first Marvel Legends wave from this era/storyline, but it’s definitely the stronger of the two. Since all of these are digital renderings, however, we’ll hold off doing a full figure-by-figure analysis.

If you’re comfortable ordering before seeing the real deal, however, each one will retail for $22.99 and can be preordered (assuming they haven’t sold out) by clicking the character’s name. The wave is expected to arrive in mailboxes and on store shelves in October.

I’ll also say that despite my unfamiliarity with this storyline, the hair styles are phenomenal.

Now let’s take a look at some other Marvel Legends offerings that were revealed during the livestream:

Retro Collection Spider-Man 2099

Even though this is a great rendering of one of my favorite figures (with an updated deco), it’s not quite good enough to make me buy it for a third time.

If you still need the classic Spider-Man 2099 on your shelf, however, then it will retail for $22.99 and is available now for preorder with an expected arrival in November. Unfortunately, it appears to be selling out most places already.

Tigra

Marvel Legends: New Age of Apocalypse wave revealed!

Even though it’s a digital rendering, you can already tell that this is going to be a big upgrade over the last Marvel Legends Tigra that came out back in 2009. It will also feature pinless articulation, which should make the figure move and look even better.

Tigra doesn’t have a set release date yet, but it will be sometime this year.

Future Teases

The two teases above almost certainly point to an upcoming Excalibur wave/release.

Marvel Legends Retro 3.75″ Line

I almost forgot about the 5 POS POA line that I hate with the fire of a thousand suns.

As I’ve stated before, if you truly like these toys, then that’s fine. Just know that they’re priced ridiculously high and that supporting the line means killing any chance of us ever getting super articulated 3.75″ figures again.

With that mini-rant out of the way, here’s what was shown. No preorder info yet, although it should be announced fairly soon.
