On Tuesday, Hasbro revealed the Marvel Legends wave of figures that will accompany the upcoming release of Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania While it sadly doesn’t include M.O.D.O.K (who could still be a single release later on), the wave does feature some very deep cut Marvel Comic characters along with great MCU facial likenesses.
The entire wave is set to be available for preorder on Wednesday, February 8 at 1:00 PM EST from most major retailers. They also share the same $24.99 retail price point and are expected to arrive this summer.
Let’s start with the movie characters first:
The chin still looks a little wonky, but this figure’s facial likeness is still far better than Hasbro’s first attempt, which even Paul Rudd couldn’t help mocking a bit.
Now that is an excellent Evangeline Lilly facial likeness. The costume also looks great. Still not sold on the haircut, but I’m coming around.
The figure looks great, but the lack of accessories is unforgivable — and not just because I wanted a Jonathan Majors alternate head so I could eventually make a custom Atticus Freeman from Lovecraft Country. I guess you could argue that the two Build-a-Figure heads “count,” but they really could’ve (and maybe should’ve) put one of those with Ant-Man.
Now let’s take a look at the comic-based figures.
Although I like the design of the comic Ultron from 2021, I like this figure more. Neither come with enough accessories, though.
It’s a pretty safe bet that no one was expecting Hasbro to produce a Marvel Legends Crossfire figure. It’s also a safe bet that few of us expected it to look this good, either.
Same deal with this dude…good lord.
Even at his most menacing, no artist could ever seem to make Egghead appear formidable or scary. In figure form, however, Hasbro has created something that looks like a truly horrific version of Dan Aykroyd as one of the Coneheads.
I’ve only seen this design a couple of times, but I really like it — especially in figure form. Unfortunately, it comes without any accessories except for the BAF parts, which is absurd.
Speaking of the BAF…
Build-A-Figure Cassie Lang
In addition to being well sculpted and having a good facial likeness of Kathryn Newton, the figure is enormous. Keep in mind that the picture above shows a 6″ scale Scott Lang being absolutely dwarfed by his daughter.
It’s going to be hard to find shelf space for this one, but could be worth it if Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania turns out to be the hit many of us are hoping for.
