@Hasbro Gives Fans A New Sneak Peek at the #Xmen #MarvelLegends Wave
May 27, 2016

Today, over on the Hasbro Pulse they revealed the final figure in the upcoming X-Men Marvel Legends wave, as well as giving us a tease of the build-a-figure for this assortment:

 

Marvel Legends fans got their first sneak peek at the upcoming X-Men Marvel Legends 6-Inch assortment last October at New York Comic Con 2015 with the reveal of Rogue. Then in February at New York Toy Fair 2016, six new mutant figures were unveiled: Deadpool, Cable, Jean Grey, Iceman, Havok and Kitty Pryde (complete with Lockheed!).

The Hasbro Pulse has the exclusive reveal of the eighth and final figure in this year’s X-Men Marvel Legends 6-Inch assortment: Wolverine!

 

As one of the most popular and iconic X-Men, Wolverine gets a new body sculpt and dons the look of his trademark brown and tan costume. After premiering back in Uncanny X-Men #139 (1980), the brown and tan suit outfitted Wolverine until 1991 and was his longest continuous costume.

 

 

Speaking of powerful and iconic brown-costumed characters from the pages of the X-Men, fans will without a doubt recognize the Build A Figure in this assortment. Check back in the next few days for the complete reveal of this unstoppable villain!

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.

    They all look so awesome, but I don’t collect Marvel Legends anymore because the ones I get are always loose and have horrible paint.
