Hasbro Figure Review – Marvel Legends Series and Transformers/G.I. Joe Crossover

Hasbro have done it again, they’ve spoilt us with a bunch of new reveals, so lets waste no time and dive straight in, shall we?


Marvel Legends Series Iron Man

(RRP: £23.99, PRE-ORDER)

VERDICT: This is really nice. It captures the immensely iconic look, and the accessories are also new and unique rather than being retreads of previously released effects.


Marvel Legends Series Speedball

(RRP: £23.99, PRE-ORDER)

VERDICT: Speedball is… okay. He’s perfectly accurate and all, but he lacks any accessories except for the build-a-figure torso, and we all know how I feel about build-a-figure parts taking away from the accessory budgets of figures.


Marvel Legends Series Blue Marvel

(RRP: £23.99, PRE-ORDER)

VERDICT: This is lovely. So much great painting and sculpting, and a great balance between his accessories and the build-a-figure parts.


Marvel Legends Series Thor

(RRP: £23.99, PRE-ORDER)

VERDICT: This looks amazing, with so many accurate details. An extra great sculpt would’ve been appreciated, but you already get two ravens, Mjolnir and a lighting effect, so I guess can’t really complain.


Marvel Legends Madame Hydra

(RRP: £23.99, PRE-ORDER)

VERDICT: Madame Hydra looks great, delivering a perfect plastic representation of the character. I like how her really detailed pistols can holster and she’s even got extra hands (woo!)


Marvel Legends Quake

(RRP: £23.99, PRE-ORDER)

VERDICT: This is my favourite is the reveals. She’s basically just a generic S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, and the two distinctly different heads are also a nice way to diversify your S.H.I.E.L.D. army if you choose to by multiples of her. You also get three sets of swappable hands, including Quake’s iconic gauntlets, and a rather nice pistol. All in all, an incredible figure.


Marvel Legends Series U.S. Agent

(RRP: £23.99, PRE-ORDER)

VERDICT: Next on our list is U.S. Agent, which features all the painting and sculpting we’ve come to expect, and then some. I also like the choices of blue and red red for the details. Overall, I’m a big fan of this.


Marvel Legends Series Rhino

(RRP: £23.99, PRE-ORDER)

VERDICT: This is great. He’s so well detailed and bulky, and you also get a good amount of accessories.


Marvel Legends Series X-Men Storm 90s Animated Series

(RRP: £26.99, PRE-ORDER)

VERDICT: This is also great, using her budget to the fullest extent to capture an iconic outfit. She also looks fantastic alongside the rest of her retro 90s Animated Series teammates.


Transformers Collaborative: G.I. Joe Mash-Up, Megatron H.I.S.S. Tank and Baroness

(RRP: £89.99, PRE-ORDER)

VERDICT: Last but not least, let’s take a look at another Transformers crossover figure. Honestly I love this so much. Megatron is well detailed, and Hasbro have done a fantastic job of creating a merger of an H.I.S.S. tank and this iconic villain.  However, the alt mode is the real star of the show, perfectly recreating the vehicle to the point where it looks as if it doesn’t transform. I’m not sure how I feel about the £90 price tag, but then again, he seems pretty big, so I guess we’ll just have to wait for people to get this in hand.
