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:
