Hey, my fellow Plastic Addict. First off, if you missed it Hasbro’s Marvel Team are having their first Livestream of the year on March 1st at 11am EST. I’m not sure what they could be revealing but if I had to hazard a guess, I think it would be the Avengers Anniversary line. I think it’s those because Marvel and other companies have started pushing the advertising. If you want to see what else could it be, head over to the Rumor List – 21/02/23.
While I’m at it, I know I have only done one version of Missing Legends but there has been soon many things going on, either in toy news, movie releases or personal stuff, I haven’t had a chance to do a second one just yet, but rest are coming. I still have a few to get through but it’s not enough. If you have a suggestion of a Missing Legends head over to the request forms here (Missing Legends Requests). Get used to this as I will be doing it for a while.
With that out of the way, today we start with an update to both Giant-Man and Ant-man. Yes, I know that the description calls it Scott but Hank wore the exact same costume first so you can use it for either Hank or Scott (Grady wore a similar costume as part of the Secret Avengers but there are too many design differences to be included).
We also look at the other Target exclusive reveal with two of the three heads that are coming with the Tracksuit Mafia figure, Kazi Kazimierczak (MCU) and Tomas Delgado (MCU). I have seen some people giving out that “no one asked for this” (which is my most hated saying in the collecting community), but I have seen that it is both sold out on Target and is getting sold out in international stores, with many buying more than one. Plus, we have been asking for random thugs for years and this is the best we are going to get.
Next, we look at the white supremist version of Captain America, the Commie Smasher of the 50’s, Grand Director. Okay, let’s face it. The chances of us getting his other costume are next to zero for some obvious reasons. We also look at the third person to take up the mantle of Green Goblin, Green Goblin (Bart Hamilton). Even with his revival, he hasn’t done much but it is nice an option of using the classic GG for Hamilton. Now they just need to make two more verisons and we will have the set. Finally, we look at Tony Stark’s chauffeur, Happy Hogan. While we have the MCU version, the chances of us getting Comic book version of the sour puss are also next to zero but he has worn Iron Man’s suit.
