With the Memorial Day Weekend upon us, Hasbro Pulse turned their Marvel Legends Fan First Friday event into Fan First Thursday to introduce new pre-orders and other upcoming releases. This month was jam packed with previously announced Infinity Saga Collection figures and the awesome nano gauntlet that Tony Stark used to save the world.
But beyond the excitement of the MCU was the reveal of a new Spider-Man 2099 figure, the X-Men Age of Apocalypse series and Colossus build-a-figure and a few other surprises.

The end is here! Or is it the beginning of a beautiful collection?

The son of Charles Xavier, Legion got his incredible mind from his legendary father, but must balance unimaginable mutant powers with his mental illness. Legion includes swappable hands and a build-a-figure piece.
These figures won’t be debuting today, but that just means there’s more to look forward to later in the year! Among the collectibles are Marvel Legends Retro figures and a new sculpt of Tigra for 2021.
Marvel Legends Retro
The Retro series figures measure 3.75-inches making them perfect for smaller displays or simply for the nostalgic value they offer to Gen Xers and Millennials. Wave Four in the Retro series will be released later this year.
It’s been a long time since Tigra made an appearance in the Marvel Legends line, with the show’s hosts stating 2009 as the last sculpt for this character. Tigra will be available exclusively at Walmart as part of the Nemesis wave. Tigra is “pin-less” with the figure having double elbows and knees and a rotating tail.
Recapping the Infinity Saga Collection
Disney and Marvel are celebrating the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first 11 years, Three Phases, and 20+ films with a massive, multi-year, merchandise campaign. Among those items are numerous Marvel Legends collectibles including figures, a Nano Gauntlet, and the Eye of Agamotto.
