HASLAB MARVEL LEGENDS SERIES X-MEN MARVEL’S SENTINEL Figure
(HASBRO/Age: Adult/Approx. Retail Price: $349.99)
The HASLAB MARVEL LEGENDS SERIES X-MEN MARVEL’S SENTINEL Figure is the first ever Marvel HasLab project and the largest MARVEL LEGENDS figure to date. Standing at 26.3-inches tall, this figure’s frame is comprised of 260 individual pieces and features LED lights in the head and chest areas and 72 points of articulation – 20 in each hand alone. Requires 2x AAA batteries, not included. Includes 18-inch Sentinel “tentacle” accessory and a MARVEL LEGENDS SERIES 6-INCH BASTION Figure with 6-inch alternate SENTINEL PRIME head. Available for purchase on Hasbro Pulse from July 10, 2020 – August 24, 2020 @ 11:59pm ET. Purchases can be made through Hasbro Pulse in the U.S. & Canada, as well as select participating retailers internationally. Check your local retailer for more information.
HasLab is Hasbro's own Crowdfunding Process where projects require sufficient backers to be produced and released. The Sentinel will need 6000 backers, and if this is reached there will be various bonuses for all backers for each additional 1000 backers who sign up. Backers will also get a redeemable code for 7000 Marvel Insider Points
If you want to have a look at the HasLab page then click here, but be advised it may be blocked to international visitors. The crowdfunding process is open from 10th July and closes on the 24th of August. Assuming the 6000 backers are in place by the 24th then the item will go into production for delivery in Autumn 2021, so there is quite a wait to get the Sentinel into your displays.
International distribution is going ahead via BigBadToyStore, and closer to home here in the UK and Europe by Zavvi. Zavvi are selling the item at £349.99 with pre orders processed on this page. Payment will be taken on the 25th of August 2020, with the item being delivered in Autumn of 2021.
Update : 11th July 2020
The Sentinel receives its target of 6000 backers in just under 24 hrs
Soon after as it exceeds 7000 backers the first bonus is unveiled as an alternative Master Mold head that will come with every unit.
Update 12th July
Backers have now reached 8000 backers. Hasbro have now confirmed that this has unlocked a battle damaged hand and head that will be included with all Sentinel's ordered.
Update 13th July
Backers are about to exceed 9000. This next level will unlock an additional 6 inch figure of a Female Prime Sentinel with the kit for all backers.
Update 21st July
Hasbro have said a big thank you to all those who have now backed the Sentinel. They have confirmed there are no other tiers or bonuses after the three announced. They have confirmed a second tentacle will be included with the Sentinel as a final bonus - but not to expect anything further.
Update 18th August
With less than a week to go, Hasbro confirmed a final surprise tier for 16,000 backers. The inclusion of a Tri-Sentinel head accessory.
"That's right, Marvel Legends Fans - a new stretch goal has been added to the biggest HasLab campaign yet. If this project reaches 16,000 backers, we will unlock another tier: the Tri-Sentinel alternate head accessory! We must reach 16,000 backers before 08/24/2020 at 11:59pm ET to unlock this uncanny new addition. Let's get it done!"
TARGET IDENTIFIED! Hasbro Pulse invites you to join us in bringing this project to life: a massive, 26.3-inch tall Marvel’s Sentinel figure. Sentinels have been a part of the X-Men story since their first appearance in X-Men #14 (1965). We need to hit 6,000 backers to fully fund this project, but we don’t want to stop there. For each 1,000 additional backers, we’ll unlock more marvelous stuff for every single backer.
Pre-order and back the X-Men Legends Marvel’s Sentinel HasLab project for $349.99. This crowdfund project will run from July 10th, 2020 to August 24th, 2020. If successful, the figures will begin shipping around Fall 2021.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
