Marvel Legends launch Marvel Studios Legacy Collection starting with Black Panther

The Marvel Legends series is getting its own version of the Star Wars Archive line, with the launch of the Marvel Studios Legacy Series of figures. The line will kick off with a wave of re-released figures to celebrate the original Black Panther movie from 2018. These Marvel Legends will sit within a wider Legacy Collection selection of Black Panther releases including basic POA figures and role-play items.


The packaging remains windowed - no closed box format as yet - and is the same style as the standard Legends format. It has a new Legacy logo on the top left tab. The Legends logo has also translated from white to gold.


The figures come without any BAF parts that may have been included in their original release, and are a mix of direct re-releases and minor tweaks. Black Panther is released in his Vibranium Charged suit, originally from the Infinity War line. We will then get a re-release of Shuri, and she has a full paint update to be a closer match to her screen costume with added blue to the outfit and a lighter tan skirt.


The next release is Nakia who has some new boots and also appears to have some decor updates including the Dora Milaje outfit with what looks to be a darker red tunic and sash. Her weaponry is also changed from the original silver circular blades to a translucent blue. The final figure in the set is Killmonger and he is also upgraded, with a clearer print to the Black Panther costume and an improved and more golden mask. He will also feature the unmasked Michael B. Jordon head released in the 2-pack with Agent Ross.


These first four figures are all general releases and will be sold via Hasbro Pulse and most other Hasbro stockists.



We then have two further figures of M'Baku, the original BAF from the 2nd Black Panther wave, and a standard Black Panther with an unmasked Chadwick Boseman head. These are both virtually identical to their original releases with a few major paint tweaks. These two Legacy releases are exclusive with M'Baku a Target US exclusive, and Black Panther sold at Walmart. Outside of the US, these are Fan Channel releases.


All six of the Marvel Legends Black Panther Legacy Collection figures are listed as August 2022 releases. The four general figures are live for pre-order now, while we are waiting on the two Fan Channel exclusives to go live with the timing of these likely linked to the date they go live in the US at Target and Walmart.
