Hasbro revealed all new figures for Marvel back during Pulsecon – Retro inspired 3.75 figures as if Kenner had done them in the 80s. These are simple, 5 points of articulation style figs with very retro looks, both on the card and the figure. They are indeed 3.75 inch, not the 4 inches + that the scale has grown to in recent years. Hasbro has sent through samples for us to check out and we’ve run them for some quick shots showing them off. Check inside for all the standard fare plus some comparison with 6 inch Legends and modern era 1/18th scale figs.
All in all I thought they were great for what they were when they were revealed, and now that they are in hand nothing’s changed. For me, they’re awesome filler figs for the Marvel shelves and things I can have around on the desk to fiddle with. At this point in my collecting adventures, if I am going to do 3.75 / 4 inch, I’d prefer it be simple like this. Save the realism and articulation for 1/12.
These are all the Hasbro Pulse exclusive versions. They are launching with 2 pack boxes, that contain 2 individually carded figures inside. Eventually, these will be available at mass retail single carded. With one exception – the Black Panther / Iron Man pack features foil cardbacks and is exclusive to Hasbro Pulse in this 2 pack format.
These are due to ship in December 2020 and are not sold out yet, so check them out and if you dig em pick yourself up a set here!
