Marvel Legends Fan First Monday: Retro Rhino and Infinity Ultron headline February’s reveals

A look at all the big reveals from Hasbro today.

For this month’s Fan First Monday livestream, Hasbro’s Marvel Legends team teased a bunch of new items while also revealing some characters that left us scrambling for Google and/or back issues to remember who they were.

Let’s take a look at the reveals connected to everyone’s favorite wall-crawler before diving into one of the most random Marvel Legends waves ever assembled.

Spidey Celebration

Spider-Man Marvel Legends

After assuring everyone that figures from Spider-Man: No Way Home were definitely in the works, the Hasbro team announced that 2022 would be a year-long celebration of the 60th anniversary of Spider-Man’s first appearance (Amazing Fantasy #15).

The party kicked off today with two reveals from an upcoming wave of figures for the Retro Collection.

Rhino

I’m still more than happy with my Marvel Select Rhino. For folks who still don’t have this guy on their Spidey villain shelf, however, it’s a fantastic release. In addition to the great sculpt/paint, this is a single carded release instead of a Build-A-Figure, making it much easier to obtain.

The figure also comes with two heads, both of which are infinitely better than the two that came with the 2015 BAF…especially this one.

The figure will be a fan channel exclusive, meaning you’ll only be able to get it online from Hasbro Pulse and other toy specific retailers like BigBadToyStore and Dorkside Toys. It is scheduled to be available for preorder beginning Tuesday at 1:00 PM EST.

Future Foundation Stealth Suit Spider-Man

I like the reverse/negative version better, but this digital render of the figure is still pretty cool. Unfortunately, it won’t be available until later this year.

What If…? Infinity Ultron BAF

Infinity Ultron

While we don’t know all the figures that will be in the next What If…? wave, we do know that this big beautiful boy will be the Build-A-Figure for it.

The Hasbro team also announced that the previously revealed MCU Hawkeye and Kate Bishop figures will be part of the wave, as well…which is weird, right? Seems like those two should be in a straight MCU wave, instead.

Whatever the case, preorder availability is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

Retro Collection VHS Storm

Once again, even an opener like me can’t help but appreciate the VHS box packaging. Also, this is by far the best that the cell shading effect has looked on any of the retro X-Men figures.

Storm will be available exclusively from Hasbro Pulse and shopDisney.com. The figure is scheduled to go up for preorder on Tuesday at 1:00 PM EST.


B-A-F Controller Wave

Now time for the most random wave of Marvel Legends that we’ve seen in a long time. To be fair, all of these look fantastic–I’m just not sure if enough people who know/like all the characters enough to buy the whole set.

If any or all of them strike your fancy, however, then they are scheduled to go up for preorder on Tuesday at 1:00 PM from your preferred online retailers.

Blue Marvel

I’ll fully admit to not knowing anything about this character, but the figure looks fantastic. Also, how can you not like those blue power effects?

Model 70 Armor Iron Man

Marvel Legends Fan First Monday: Retro Rhino and Infinity Ultron headline February's reveals

Looks pretty good, but it’s going to take a lot more for me to add yet another Iron Man figure to my collection and/or storage bins. This is based on the Alex Ross, Cafu, Christopher Cantwell design in the recent story arc.

Speedball

Marvel Legends Fan First Monday: Retro Rhino and Infinity Ultron headline February's reveals

A great looking figure based on one of my favorite obscure characters. Unfortunately, the disappointing lack of power effect accessories make it an easy pass.

Madam Hydra

Marvel Legends Fan First Monday: Retro Rhino and Infinity Ultron headline February's reveals

A definite improvement over the 2012 version. This isn’t a character I’d necessarily want for my shelf, but if you’re a fan of hers, then you should definitely get one.

Quake (Comic Version)

Marvel Legends Fan First Monday: Retro Rhino and Infinity Ultron headline February's reveals

Arguably the best figure of the wave. In addition to being a character that lots of folks have wanted (and those awesome power gloves), Quake comes with an alternate Maria Hill head along with white gloves to match.

Add in the pinless articulation, and it’s hard not to be happy about this one…unless you were hoping for a Quake figure with Chloe Bennet’s likeness from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. If that’s the case, then it might be time to give up the dream.

U.S. Agent (Comic Version)

Marvel Legends Fan First Monday: Retro Rhino and Infinity Ultron headline February's reveals

I know the Marvel Legends team said they’ve used this smooth body before, but I can’t ever remember it looking this bad.

Thor

Marvel Legends Fan First Monday: Retro Rhino and Infinity Ultron headline February's reveals

Now that’s a cool Thor toy.

In addition to the all-new (and wonderful) sculpt, the figure comes with an energized/translucent hammer, power effects, and a raven.

Also, unboxing the figure caused Dwight to hilariously knock over a bunch of stuff from one of his shelves during the livestream, adding yet another reason this one’s worthy of your consideration.

Build-A-Figure Controller

I have no idea who this character is, but that facial portrait is fantastic.


After showing some Galactus production samples, the Hasbro team finished things up with their traditional end-of-livestream tease. As usual, I feel like an idiot for having absolutely no idea what character the object they showed could be hinting at.

If any of you know, please feel free once again to help me out in the comments section.
