‘Marvel’ At These Hasbro SDCC Exclusives
As always, the crew at Hasbro are planning to do their best to keep Marvel collectors happy with their SDCC 2019 exclusive offerings. This week they announced two new Marvel Legends exclusives that will be available at SDCC next month, with figures from both the classic Marvel Comics and from the popular Marvel Cinematic Universe!
First up we have an all-new comic based figure of The Incredible Hulk! This new Hulk figure is an entirely new sculpt and comes packaged on Marvel Legends Retro Packaging, which is based on the packaging of the classic Toybiz 5″ Marvel superheroes figures. The Marvel Legends Retro Incredible Hulk figure will be priced at $34.99.
If you’re more of a fan of the Marvel movies oh, then you’re in luck! Hasbro also announced a special new Marvel Legends figure 2-pack that brings two popular characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to life in fully articulated 6-inch Glory! For just $49.99 people attending San Diego Comic-Con 2019 will be able to take home a special collector set featuring The Collector and The Grandmaster! These two have appeared in separate films in the MCU, but are actually brothers! The Collector has been on a lot of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ fans wish lists for years and includes two interchangeable heads plus the infinity orb. Meanwhile, The Grandmaster, as seen in ‘Thor Ragnarok’, comes packaged with his melt stick and a pile of goo that used to be his cousin! It’s also worth noting that while Grandmaster we’ll be seeing a wide release later this year in a two pack with Korg, this SDCC exclusive version features a unique head sculpt that is only available in this box set.
While both of these items are set to be exclusive to San Diego Comic Con, it is it expected that they will also end up available on Hasbro Pulse after the convention wraps.
