After two film series, the pleading of millions of fans, and more years than we would like to think about, fan favorite webbed-wonder Spider-Man is finally coming home to the Marvel Cinematic Universe! This summer’s upcoming ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ is easily one of this year’s most anticipated films, and that means it goes without saying that the tie-in toyline is also going to be highly anticipated! Thankfully, fans won’t have to wait much longer to see the new figures that they’ll be trying to add to their collection this summer because Hasbro has released new images and information for the upcoming film’s new 6″ scale Marvel Legends wave!
Hasbro is giving us a first look at some of the new character designs for the film in the form of these new figures, including Spider-Man’s new costume, The Vulture, and even Iron-Man’s fancy new digs! So far Hasbro has announced a wave of single 6″ scale figures, as well as a special new figure 2-pack that will include Spider-Man (with an alternative unmasked Peter Parker head that looks like actor Tom Holland!) and Iron-Man in his armor for the film! It’s worth noting that Iron-Man’s look is heavily inspired by his armor design from Marvel’s ‘Ultimate’ universe, which is fitting considering how much it looks like ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ looks to be lifting from the ‘Ultimate Spider-Man’ comic series!
Figures confirmed for the single-packed line include Spider-Man (with his new Web Wings!), Spider-Man (Homemade Suit), and of course The Vulture (the figure itself is a single packed figure, but his gigantic Flight Gear is actually this Marvel Legends waves’ Build-A-Figure).

This wave of Marvel Legends figures won’t be entirely based on the film and will also include a few figures with comic book based designs as well, although we aren’t entirely sure who at this time. The release from Hasbro says we’re getting Green Goblin and Ms. Marvel in the wave, but considering they are figures we already just recently got, it seems unlikely they would be re-issued or that these two characters would get newly designed figures so soon! It is more likely that these characters we used as placeholders until the actual figures are revealed to fill out the rest of the line.
‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ is the first solo ‘Spider-Man’ film in the official Marvel Cinematic Universe! The film is directed by Jon Watts and stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Zendeya, Donald Glover, and Tyne Daly. Be sure to catch it in theaters when it opens on July 7th 2017!
