With Spider-Man: Far From Home hitting theaters this week, Hasbro gives us a great mix of Marvel Legends!

I really love the Marvel Legends that are attached to the movies some times. We get a great mix of both movie and comic book characters, and this latest wave is no different.

The wave includes 7 figures and Molten Man as the Build-A-Figure:

Spider-Man: Upgraded Suit

From what we are able to tell in the trailers for Far From Home, it looks like Nick Fury gives Spider-Man a new suit. Hasbro does a great job capturing this character. It’s a smaller body than a normal ML but that makes sense as Spider-Man is younger in the films. While he doesn’t come with a BAF piece, he does comes with 2 sets of hands: closed fists and web shooting hands. The only thing that bugs me is while there are lines in the costume for webbing, it’s not darkened in. I’m not sure why Hasbro did that, but I just don’t like the solid red.

Spider-Man: Stealth Suit

Also, we’ve seen in the trailers is an all black suit that is being referred to the stealth suit. It’s a really cool look. Spider-Man looks like a real spy. It seems like a repurposed S.H.E.I.L.D. suit as there looks like a spot for a patch. There is an alternate head that has the goggles up. And again 2 sets of hands: closed fists and web shooting hands. I’m really loving this design. Finally, the stealth suit comes with the left arm of Molten Man.

Mysterio

Good lord, I can not get over how well the movie designer did with translating Mysterio’s costume from the comics to the film. Pretty much spot on. And then Hasbro nailed it themselves. Unlike the comic Mysterio figure, the movie version has the “fishbowl” on a neck so you can move it around. The cape doesn’t hamper the movement of the figure at all either. Mysterio comes with 2 sets of hands: closed fists and grasping hands. Mysterio comes with the left leg of Molten Man.

Doppelganger Spider-Man

This is a case where I can’t believe Hasbro actually did this character. I’m not hating it, it’s just in my wildest dreams I thought we’d see this character in action figure again. His body is the same body as the six-armed Spider-Man so there is no ab crunch. What it lacks in ab crunch is more than made up on the design here. The face is so menacing, and I’m loving the claws on each hand. The talons on the feet actually help it maintain it’s balance. Love it. The only problem I have is like the Spider-Man figure in this wave, Doppelganger is missing coloring in the webbing in his costume. He comes with the right leg of Molten Man.

Spider-Woman

Nice to see the second Spider-Woman getting some love. I’ve always been a fan of hers since she first appeared in Secret Wars #7. We get the usual female body we are used to in Marvel Legends, so no complaints there. Spider-Woman also comes with an interchangeable hand that simulates her psionic webs. It’s a really cool effect. Spider-Woman comes with Molten Man’s torso

Scorpion

I’m so glad to be getting this long time Spider-Man villain in his iconic look. It’s a little updated from Steve Ditko’s original design but you still take one look and know it’s Scorpion. I love the fact that Hasbro made the tail flexible. You can move it around or trap a hero in it. Just a solid look! He comes with the right leg of Molten Man.

Hydro-Man

Talk about a long time coming. I’m also not shocked that he’s included in this wave, as there is a Hydro-Man in the movie. This version is the comic version. I love the water arms and the removable water on each of his feet. I did have some difficulty getting him to stand on his own. Took a little while, but worth it when he was balanced. Hydro-Man comes with Molten Man’s head.

Molten Man

This Molten Man is based on the movie version and he is truly a monster. Looks like a Frankenstein monster with all the different sizes of his body parts. I had no difficulty putting him together. He stands well on his own and still has all the points of articulation you expect.

Bottom line, though I have some issue with a figure or two, overall this is a great wave and a must have for your collection.

Thank you so much for Hasbro for sending these to us to check them out!.
