I was really hoping that Hasbro would do a Marvel Legends exclusive for this years San Diego Comic Con and it was announced by Marvel.com last night that they will be. Presenting, the SDCC 2012 Marvel Legends Uncanny X-Force Box Set: The Fall of Archangel. This boxed set will include: Archangel, Psylocke and Wolverine in their current X-Force costumes.
Here is what Marvel.com had to say about it:
San Diego Comic-Con is fast approaching and that means new toys!
This year, collectors have a chance to hook their adamantium claws into the new Marvel Legends Special Edition Uncanny X-Force Collector’s Pack. Featuring six-inch scale figures of Archangel, Wolverine and Psylocke, the characters are seen in their costumes from the Fall of Archangel story line. The set even comes in a collectable display box with exclusive art by comic artist Clayton Crain!
The Marvel Legends Special Edition Uncanny X-Force Collector’s Pack is available for an approximate retail price of $49.99 at HasbroToyShop.com and Hasbro Booth #3329 at San Diego Comic-Con.
I sure hope there are going to be plenty of these available on-line after the show on HasbroToyShop.com. The last couple of years have been a bust for me with trying to get their exclusives on-line after the show. I understand these are meant for the people who are lucky enough to attend the show, but most companies try to make their exclusives available to those who can’t attend too. (I’m lookin’ at you Matty and Hasbro!) So what do you think? Is this set worth the effort and the price to try to get one to you?
