Toy Fair 2019 just ended, and boy was it exciting! Toy Fair is the most anticipated toy event of the year. Attendees can connect with others, share ideas, and get sneak peeks at upcoming products. It’s a collector’s paradise! (Not to mention the best place for doll and action figure bloggers to meet big brands and establish themselves in the toy community). Unfortunately, I cannot attend due to my problematic health?. Still, that doesn’t keep me from following the major brands on social media and reporting what I see there to you! So, let’s get started and see what’s in store for 2019!
2019 Marvel Legends
Avengers: Infinity War:
We learned last fall that a Marvel Legends Ebony Maw and Corvus Glaive would show up in 2019. Most expected these figures to be part of an Avengers: Endgame series, but it looks like they are actually part of another Avengers: Infinity War wave.
A two-pack featuring Corvus Glaive and Loki was revealed at Toy Fair and is listed on Walmart’s website.
I didn’t plan on getting Corvus Glaive, but Loki is a must have! So, it looks like I’ll end up with Glaive after all. Oh well, I suppose he can hang with Crossbones and Yellowjacket. Maybe I’ll even create an evil lair for them!
If you’re thinking of buying these figures, I suggest keeping a close eye on Walmart’s site. I expect them to sell out quickly, especially since many collectors want a Corvus Glaive to go with their Proxima Midnight. According to my sources (aka the internet), this two-pack will be available this Spring (2019).
Spider-Man: Homecoming–Spider-Man and MJ 2-pack:
Yes, my friends, we are getting Spider-Man and MJ from Spider-Man: Homecoming!
I am ecstatic about this set! Not only are we getting MJ for the first time, but I really wanted a Marvel Legends figure of Spider-Man in his Stark Suit since I missed out on the first Spider-Man: Homecoming wave.
This two-pack is a Target exclusive. Like the Loki and Corvus Glaive set, it should be available in stores and online this Spring.
Marvel Legends 6-inch Shuri:
Black Panther fans can continue adding to their collection with a brand new Shuri figure!
I’m not sure if this Shuri is in the same wave as Corvus Glaive and Loki, an Avengers: Endgame wave, or a completely different wave. Regardless, she will look great standing next to T’Challa and Nakia!
Spider-Man: Far From Home:
This week images of two Spider-Man figures from Spider-Man: Far From Home popped up on Hasbro’s Twitter account.
The picture on the left is Spider-Man in his new black and red suit, and the other is his black Stealth Suit (both of these suits are seen in the Spider-Man: Far From Home teaser). I have no clue if either of these figures come with alternate hands or unmasked heads. Still, I intend to pick up both even if they come without accessories.
I also saw listings for a Marvel Legends Scorpion figure and Hydro-Man figure. We know Hydro-Man is in Far From Home, and it’s rumored that Scorpion and Vulture will show up as well. I don’t know if these figures are part of a Far From Home wave or not, but it is interesting that they were included in the line-up.
Remember that clip at the very end of Spider-Man: Homecoming when Vulture passes a tattooed inmate, and the guy asks him about their “spider friend”? That is Scorpion.
I’m surprised a movie-accurate Mysterio wasn’t shown. I feel sure we’ll get one though since he is the main villain.
Marvel 80th Anniversary Series:
Last year surprised us with a unique collection of Legends celebrating Marvel Studios’ 10th anniversary. Well, this year we are getting another special series celebrating 80 years of Marvel comics and movies!
The 10th Anniversary sets featured only MCU characters (which, I admit, are my favorite), but this 80th Anniversary wave will also include comic book characters. It’s a win for both comic book fans and MCU fans!
The figures in this series are:
Marvel 80th Anniversary Legends Series Iron Man and Iron Spider 2-Pack.
You can be sure I’ll be getting this set!
Marvel 80th Anniversary Legends Series Captain America and Peggy Carter 2-pack.
We are finally getting Captain America and Peggy Carter from Captain America: The First Avenger! This is incredible! These two are definitely on my Legends list.
Marvel 80th Anniversary Legends Series Grandmaster and Korg 2-pack:
So many exciting toys to look forward to! I have kind of the opposite problem when it comes to Marvel Legends. I’m relieved whenever I see something that isn’t X-Men, because I only collect X-Men. There are just so many new figures coming out this year that I’ve been waiting for them to make for such a long time… my poor wallet lol!
I’m also really looking forward to seeing the new barbies in stores, I agree that it’s very important to have a more diverse range of dolls available.
Thanks for your comment! Yes, it’s shaping up to be a good year for both X-Men and MCU collectors! The figures look awesome, and I’m excited to see more minor characters. A few months ago, someone asked me if I thought Hasbro would ever make a Marvel Legends Luis (I was showing off Ant-Man from the First Ten Years series). I said, “No way–they rarely make sidekicks.” I’ve never been so happy to be proven wrong!
wow these are so cool the fashionista dolls make grate LOL doll moms and dads!
I am pretty sure that there was a doll pack with Anna, Elsa and Vanellope on the Disney Store social media awhile back. If you just want the Arendelle sisters, that might be a less expensive option.
Thanks for the tip! I just looked at the Vanellope, Anna, and Elsa set online and they’re adorable! I can’t believe I missed them. I may still hold out for the Hasbro dolls just because they’re taller and have more articulation. Still, the Disney Store ones are awfully tempting?.
I admit, I am excited about the barbies especially the ones with prosthetic legs.
Also though I never watched Wreck it Ralph 2, I am excited that there are princesses with different face sculpts, since I often use the dolls for fictional characters, and the fact that they have different faces is quite useful.
Also though this is not mentioned I watched a My Froggy Stuff video where they mentioned Hachimal releases, which sound really exciting since they are expanding the Hachimal line.
P.S. I personally don’t understand people’s obsessions with BTS. (But maybe that is just me), but it is interesting that they are making a doll of them, I wonder if they will make dolls of Taylor Swift or some other famous singer.
I don’t know what the fascination with BTS is either. Maybe it’s because I’m not a teen¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Nevertheless, I’m curious if they’ll be fully articulated. If so, they might be excellent candidates for creating Made-To-Move Ken dolls.
Yes, the new princesses are pretty cute! I don’t know if I’ll get the whole set, but I’m definitely considering a couple of two-packs. Thanks for the tip about the Hatchimals! I’ll check out the video for sure (I adore Hatchimals?).
The new articulated Disney princesses look nice, but I’m not sure that they’d fit in with my Barbie crew, and I don’t like the princesses themselves enough to buy any. I may change my mind when I see them in person.
My youngest daughter, the Dancer, loves Peggy Carter. She even bought a lipstick by Besame (kiss me in Spanish) that is the shade that Peggy Carter wore in her TV miniseries.
I love Peggy Carter too! There’s speculation she might make an appearance in Endgame (like in a flashback or time jump), but it’s mostly vague rumors.
