This week on Hasbro Pulse Fan Friday, it was the turn of the Marvel Legends team to hold a live stream event complete with reveals. The session was hosted by Dan and Ryan from the Brand Marketing Team and by Dwight from the Design Team.
The first few figures the team talked through were figures we had seen at New York Toy Fair 2020, but now with updated final product samples. Old Man Hawkeye uses pinless joints in knees and elbows. Includes two head options, one with the windswept hair as seen at New York Toy Fair. He will come in a pack with Old Man Logan.
Nimrod was shown and they talked about him being in in the build-a-figure scale, but not a BAF. Speculation has it he will be part of a multi-pack. He comes with a House of X hed as well as a Classic Head. He includes alternative repulsor blast hands. He also includes the option to remove the wings for a more classic look.
Rogue, in her green outfit, also uses the pinless joints. She has had the hair paint corrected to include the white strands which were missing from the Toy Fair imagery. There will be two head options included - one neutral, one angry.
The Troop Builder format will see the release of an A.I.M. Trooper. This comes in a windowless box at a cheaper RRP to allow army building.

It was also revealed Hasbro will be bringing us a new Troop Builder later in 2020 that will be brand new to the line (begin the speculation).
And talking of speculation, the team showed this zoomed in image of a foot of an upcoming announcement... so get speculation on who this may be.
The other huge bt of news was during a fan question about figures from Spider-Man : Into The Spiderverse, and the team revealed figures from the animated movie are coming - they just couldn't tell us who or when.

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...
