Two waves of Marvel Legends figures are on the way in support of May’s Avengers: Infinity War film hitting theaters, and while we have seen many of these already through cell phone pics and eBay auctions, they now stand officially revealed. Each wave will consist of 6-7 figures, with two heavy-hitter villains as the build a figures. The first wave is showing up in stores now with an official street date of March 3rd, which is this Saturday. The second will hit this summer, timed to also promote the film Ant-Man and Wasp.
The first wave has seven figures to collect so that you can build the MCU version of Thanos. Many of you probably have already seen these; some of you may already have them. Movie figures include a new version of Captain America with his new Wakandan shield, Iron Man yet again, Spidey in his Iron Spider suit, and Proxima Midnight. Comic figures include awesome looking versions of King Cobra, Songbird, and Taskmaster. These are hitting some stores now, and should be everywhere starting this weekend.
For the second wave, we get even more movie figures. Yet another Thor (seriously — he just had his own movie and wave of figures four months ago), blonde Black Widow, Ant-Man and Wasp from their upcoming film (with the ridiculous face portraits we saw at Toy Fair). Comic figures are an updated Black Knight and a repaint of last year’s SDCC exclusive Malekith figure from the Mighty Thor set. While not confirmed, the build a figure looks to be Cull Obsidian from Infinity War, who looks pretty badass.
Overall these are two strong waves of figures for both comic and MCU collectors alike. Coupled with the MCU 10 Years line also coming out throughout the year, there are not many holes in that collection (*cough* Agent Carter). Keep an eye out for these figures over the next couple of months, and let us know what you are finding on the pegs.
