To date, the larger 12" Marvel Legends range from Hasbro has been comic book based. We've seen Iron-Man, Captain America and Spider-Man - and we have Daredevil, Thor and Hulk incoming. However, it seems Hasbro are now moving into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with their detailed 12" collectors figures. And the first to hit stores will be this lovely looking Black Panther in 2018.
This new direction for the 12" Legends was revealed at D23, with a prototype figure on show for fans to admire. The figure won't be on sale until 2018, and the RRP should be around the $70 / £60 mark like the comic book equivalents. With the aforementioned comic book releases already seeing deep discounts and clearance activity, this move to MCU may re-energise the 12" line and be a cost friendly alternative to the Hot Toys MCU range.
