Marvel Legends Black Widow Wave Movie Characters thoughts

Hello, Marvel Cinematic Universe fans and Marvel Legends collectors!

As we are still waiting on the Black Widow movie to be released as it was delayed due to the pandemic.

The Hasbro Marvel Legends wave is currently out at retailers like Amazon and eBay.

So I will be sharing my thoughts on if these are worth getting to keep you excited for the movie.

Black Widow

 

I’ll start off with Black Widow first as she is the main character in her movie.

We have received many MCU Black Widows from Hasbro and all of them have been pretty good.

This one is my favourite along with the Mandroid wave version as both of them really resemble Scarlett Johansson.

As for alternate hands we have two fists and two gribbing hands that are for the guns or batons.

The pistols can go in both holsters so no frustrations with molded in guns that a lot of collectors like myself don’t like.

While articulation like single jointed elbows and double jointed knees are the same it is what you’d expect from Hasbro.

Yelena Belova

Next up we have Yelena Belova who Florence Pugh portrays in the movie.

While we don’t know a whole lot about the MCU version of Yelena compared to the comic books.

As for accessories we have similar to Black Widow two gripping and fisted hands.

There are no batons included with Yelena only two pistols as I don’t think she uses that kind of weapon.

Unlike Black Widow where you can store both pistols in the holsters on Yelena you only have one on the right side.

If you were hopeful for double jointed elbows with Yelena sadly like Black Widow it is single jointed.

The knees are double jointed as well so you can have both of them in running poses if you want to.

Red Guardian

After Yelena we have Red Guardian who David Harbour will be portraying.

We don’t know a whole lot about this character at this point but when the movie is released it’ll be interesting to know more.

While it is a shame that they didn’t include a masked alternate head as seen in the trailer that may come later.

The unmasked head sculpt does somewhat resemble the actor but not quite as his beard and hair don’t match very well.

As for accessories you only have his shield that you can clip onto his wrist or peg into his back.

It is the same mechanism that is used with the Hasbro Captain America.

Taskmaster

Last we have Taskmaster and at this point in time we don’t know who will be playing this character.

As for alternate hands we have two clawing, gripping and fisted that you can interchange anytime you want.

In terms of weapons we have a shield, sword, bow and arrow so good choice of weapons to have him hold.

While there is no unmasked head that is more than likely because the movie isn’t out yet and Hasbro don’t want to spoil anything.

Since Taskmaster does seem to be the more popular of the four of them I recommend getting your hands on him as soon as you see him.

As if you wanted to he could work in a comic based display as well so that may be a reason why he tends to sell out very quickly.

Are these worth getting if you are excited about the Black Widow movie?

I’d say if you are a Marvel Legends collector of the MCU characters then yes I highly recommend you get these four.

If your a fan of comic based characters then these four aren’t for you as they are not from the comic books.

While these are released as part of the Crimson Dynamo Build-A-Figure wave there are three comic based characters as well.

Since I am really excited for the Black Widow movie when it does get released I had a lot of enjoyment with these four.

Are you going to be purchasing these four for your Marvel Cinematic Universe collection or are you going to pass?

Let me know in the comments below as I would like to hear your thoughts.

    I am a huge fan of the MCU so i loved this post! I had no idea that these action figures out, after reading your reviews i must say that I’m interested in getting them, especially the Red Guardian one as in my opinion he looks awesome! I might also get the black widow one for my other half as she loves her.

    Being a big fan of the comics, whenever I see things like this on a post, I always give it my full attention. Though I am yet to watch or see this movie itself, however, this black widow seems a lot like a character that I will really like considering her traits which are quite familiar to me. I also like the fact that you have also given overview of other characters too. I will surely look for the movie and come back to give another view of her

    I found your article about the up and coming Black Widow movie and action figures interesting. I have only recently started watching the Marvel movies and have found them pretty entertaining. Now after reading your article I am anticipating the new arrival. The actions figures look like something that would make great gifts as well. Thank you for sharing.

      Hello, 

      Thank you for your comment.

      The Marvel Cinematic Universe movies are entertaining to me as well. 

      I am also anticipating the new Black Widow movie and can’t wait to see it when it gets released.

      The Hasbro Marvel Legends would certainly make great gifts so I agree with you. 

      Best wishes,

    This pandemic has delayed the black widow movie as this is a movie I was really anticipating to watch. Having said that, I might just have to make do with the action figures to keep me pumped up for the eventual release of the movie. Of course the main hero of the movie would be my choice as I am not really interested on any other character. I have to say that just looking at the picture I am quite impressed with how the character Iook very similar to that of the actual movie. I just hope it would be like this when I decide to get it.

      Hello, 

      Thank you for your comment. 

      I was also anticipating the Black Widow movie as well and can’t wait to see it. 

      Black Widow in this wave would be my first choice as well as we don’t know a lot about the other characters.

      I think Hasbro perfectly captured Black Widow’s look from the movie just perfectly.

      Well when you do decide to get her I really hope you enjoy Black Widow as much as I did. 

      Best wishes, 

      Cameron
