With Toys R Us going the way of the dodo, there’s been a lot of concern and confusion about exactly where the exclusives intended for them would end up. While the jury is still out on what will happen with the Marvel Legends Sentinel and Infinity War Thor/Rocket/Groot sets, we now know the fate of at least one set: the exclusive Marvel Legends Ant-Man & Stinger two-pack is now up for order online!
One of the exclusives that Hasbro revealed at New York Toy Fair 2018 that not many collectors were expecting was a comics-based two-pack including a modern Astonishing Ant-Man Scott Lang Marvel Legends figure, as well as a figure of his daughter Cassie Lang in her Stinger costume!
This is a pretty fun and interesting two-pack of a couple characters who not many would have expected to get the Marvel Legends 6″ treatment until the line exploded in popularity in recent years, so it would have been a real shame if the set got scrapped because of Toys R Us’ tragic demise.
Thankfully, we won’t have to live in a world without Marvel Legends Stinger and Ant-Man figures, as the two-pack was already produced by the factories and getting ready to enter distribution by the time Toys R Us announced their closure.
And so, while some Toys R Us stores actually seem to have received small quantities of this set, online retailers are coming to the rescue for the rest of us! The Marvel Legends Ant-Man & Stinger two-pack is now up for order via EE, where it’s being sold for the standard MSRP of $39.99 (plus shipping).
While it’s a bit of a bummer that we won’t be able to purchase this set from TRU as intended, I’m just happy that we’re going to get to own these figures at all at this point. Whether or not the other exclusives that were meant for Toys R Us distribution will get the same treatment remains to be seen.
Regardless, comics-based Scott Lang and Cassandra Lang figures are now ready to come home to our collections! Will you be adding this dynamic duo to your collections, Marvel collectors, or are you satisfied with the movie-based Ant-Man toys that are coming our way this summer?
