I think it was said they were supposed to mixed in with wave 4 (hit monkey series) but so far I've only seen half of wave 4 on shelves (2 Wolverines, Protector, and 2 ult Caps). I guess if we start seeing the wave 4 variants or wave 5, we can give up hope on the wave 3 variants.

Hey guys, we have a thread devoted to Wave 3 already (including the varients).

MODS: You may want to merge.

Hi from Ontario, Canada,

I sent an email to Hasboro CS about the lack of variants being released for the last 3 waves of Marvel Legends and this is what I got:

Thank you for your email,

I understand and appreciate your thoughts and frustrations. However, the products we show on our packaging is simply a showcase of what is to come in the line, although exact dates can never be provided because anything is subject to change. We never promise a variant will be released the same time as the products. As the previous agent mentioned, many items that are expected to be released by our collectors may not necessarily be released. I can tell you that I was able to reach out to our team and they have advised that some of the variants that were advertised on product packaging and have not made it to shelves as yet, will be released sometime in the very near future.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to call us at 1-800-327-8264.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.


Is this new? What is up with Hasboro? Not sure what to think about up coming variants and Hasboro's business practices.

Any thoughts?

Been going on for years with Star Wars variants (or entirely new product) being announced then shuffled around, outright cancelled, becoming online exclusives by default or going straight to closeout stores.

As for "business practices" it's called "staying in business". Hasbro makes the product but they have no control over what retail orders and if the first batch of product doesn't sell then the second batch (which usually contains the variants) gets a much smaller run or never gets made. Toy over-runs seem to be a thing of the past with KB gone with manufacturers trying to keep product runs as close to order quantity as possible.
