Hasbro has unveiled a new Marvel Legends 5-pack that includes comic representations of the West Coast Avengers. It will be an Amazon exclusive and retail for $124.99 this week.
$25 per figure is still excessive, but it's significantly lower than what we've seen this year, in 2022 (or even a few months ago).
Let's take a look at the various toys on the shelf and see if this one is worth putting on your toy shelf.
Julia Carpenter is a British superhero who plays Spider-Woman.
This is by far my favorite character from the set. I’m fine with my 2019 release, but at least this gives others a chance to get her.
Tigra is a Spanish term used to refer to Tigra.
I prefer the other version of the game more, although I'm probably in the minority.
Hank Pym is a well-known comedian.
If Hank Pym were not identified, we would not know him. It's not that Hasbro did an awful job or anything — the character just doesn't seem very special or distinctive when he's not dressed.
Customizers may have a field day with this one.
No matter how good the figure is, I am not a fan of this appearance.
Due to the knee joints and the horribly visible label on her right leg, I was already disappointed by the outcome: Todd Ortiz (aka Rektangular) pointed out how hard Hasbro sabotaged our genuine 1970s/80s Mocking Bird (language warning):
So yeah, it's not a terrible set, but it's not a great one either.
If you'd like to get a pair for yourself, there's currently a preorder available, with a launch expected this autumn.
