SDCC 2019 Exclusive Marvel Legends Collector & Grandmaster Set!

When Hasbro announced a singular Retro Marvel Legends Vintage Hulk figure as a San Diego Comic Con 2019 exclusive last week, pretty much every long-time Marvel Legends collector predicted we’d be seeing another offering before too long. And sure enough, we get to start off this week’s Marvel toy news with a second item for next month’s major event: the SDCC 2019 Exclusive Marvel Legends Collector & Grandmaster 6” figure two-pack has now been revealed!

Marvel Legends Collector Grandmaster Figures Two Pack PackagedOne of the biggest surprises at New York Toy Fair 2019 (for those who didn’t read the leaks, anyway) was the first-ever Marvel Legends Jeff Goldblum figure, with The Grandmaster coming in a Thor Ragnarok Two-Pack with Korg as part of the 80th Anniversary Series.

That ML Grandmaster figure is due out in August, but fans attending San Diego Comic Con will get first dibs on a Grandmaster action figure, as Jeff Goldblum will be part of a different two-pack available exclusively at SDCC!

Not only will this action figure include the Melting Rod from the regular pack, but this time you’ll even get a bubbling blue pile of Goo! Now that is a unique accessory!

And while I like the serious-faced Jeff Goldblum portrait from the mass release figure just fine, there’s no denying that the con exclusive smiling head is tons of fun. Thumbs up.

Hasbro SDCC 2019 Exclusive Grandmaster and The Collector FiguresThe other half of the 2019 SDCC Marvel Legends two-pack is a 100% new character with a lot of new tooling who is not currently announced to be released anywhere else: the first-ever 6” Marvel Legends Collector figure! Other than the pants, which I believe may be recycled from an earlier figure, I believe this The Collector action figure is a totally new figure.

You get two Benicio Del Toro heads with the figure—one with glasses and one without—as well as a removable cape, the Orb from Guardians of the Galaxy, and a cardboard cutout container with Cosmo the Space Dog printed on it. Great likeness; smart accessories. A shame we don’t get an actual 6″ scale Cosmo figure here, as I’d have honestly liked that more than anything else in the set, but a nice toy nonetheless.

It’s always tough to see a unique character as a con-only exclusive, but if it’s going to happen, I prefer it be with ultra-niche character like The Collector. This looks superb and I’ll be thrilled to add him to my collection. Grandparents at Walmart also won’t accidentally pick this up for a kid who won’t want it. Everybody wins.

The Marvel Legends Grandmaster & Collector two-pack will be available first at San Diego Comic Con 2019 next month for $49.99, with some sets being held back to sell at other conventions and also on Hasbro Pulse. I’ll send out alerts via the Marvel Toy News Facebook, Twitter and Instagram once the set goes up for order on Hasbro Pulse, as it very possibly will sell out quickly.

Thoughts on this second Marvel Legends SDCC 2019 announcement, Marvel collectors? If this is the last ML exclusive for the event (and it very likely will be), are you satisfied with this year’s offerings? Or would you have liked something else instead?
