The first full wave of Avengers: Infinity War action figures for Hasbro's Marvel Legends line has been revealed. The wave includes movie figures for Captain America, Iron Spider, Iron Man, Thanos, and Proxima Midnight.
Marvel Legends collectors have plenty to be excited about in 2018. So far, Hasbro has announced eight waves of figures, beginning with a Black Panther line. Fans can also look forward to a Spider-Man wave with a Lizard build-a-figure, and an X-Men line with an Apocalypse build-a-figure. Avengers: Infinity War and Deadpool will receive two waves each, while Venom will receive at least one. This year, fans will be able to purchase figures of numerous fan-favorite characters, including Ghost Rider, Carnage, Omega Red, X-23, Wolverine, and Black Widow.
Thanks to Articulated Legends, we now have a look at the first set of Marvel Legends figures for Avengers: Infinity War. The wave includes Iron Spider, Captain America, Proxima Midnight, and Iron Man in their movie costumes. The MCU version of Thanos serves as the build-a-figure. Also featured in the wave are three comic book-inspired figures for Songbird, Taskmaster, and King Cobra. All the way back in July during SDCC 2017, Songbird was the first figure in the wave to revealed, followed by King Cobra, who was shown off at HASCON 2017. Taskmaster was unveiled a month later at NYCC 2017.
Infinity War Proxima Midnight This figure is huge and beautiful. I think she might be bigger than Hela! Intricate sculpting across her entire body that looks like a topographical map. It's a really interesting interpretation of the comic design. Plus, female character with double jointed elbows!!!

Infinity War BAF Thanos! (AKA Josh Brolinos) Assist by @westcoastfuntoys As with all ML MCU figures, the sculpting is legit. As with all larger ML figures, the articulation is limited. I wish we would've received a second non-smirky head but the likeness is fine. And he IS purple and not pink as the trailer would lead us to believe! What a relief. I'll have to compare this to my other Thanos figures when I pull them out one of these days. @marvel @hasbro @hasbropulse #marvel #hasbro #actionfigures #toycollector #avengers #mcu #infinitywar #thanos #joshbrolin
Infinity War Iron Spider (yes, the box labels him this way and not as Spider-Man) Stragetic acquisition logistics by @westcoastfuntoys This figure seems like it could be the same buck as the previous MCU Spiders but is covered by a sculpted texture and paint job that give it a shimmering quality in some lighting, which isn't done justice by still shots at all. It's a great design. Should've included alternate hands because the others do not work with this. The unmasked head works alright if you like your Tom Hollands with extra long necks. @marvel @hasbro @hasbropulse #marvel #hasbro #actionfigures #toycollector #avengers #mcu #infinitywar #spiderman #ironspider #tomholland
Infinity War Iron Man Connection by @westcoastfuntoys Another gorgeous, bulky, sleek iron Man. This has the exact same articulation as the Civil War version, as far as I can tell, but it seems to be a completely new sculpt. The biggest missed opportunity here is the lack of a new face printed Robert Downey Jr. head, but the most recent MCU Stark head works fine here, as you can see. Plus, there are 2 alternate hands and 2 repulsor effects. @marvel @hasbro @hasbropulse #marvel #hasbro #actionfigures #toycollector #avengers #mcu #infinitywar #ironman #tonystark #robertdowneyjr
Infinity War Captain America!!! Hookup by @westcoastfuntoys This is probably the first passable Chris Evans head Hasbro has done. The sculpting through is excellent. The (Wakandan?) shield is pretty badass too. *Yes I'm aware the shot of the characters running should have War Machine and Hulk in it, but it's late and I wanted to get at least a handfull of photos up tonight. I'll probably do an accurate trailer shit some other day. @hasbro @marvel #marvel #mcu #avengers #infinitywar #actionfigures #toycollector #toyhunter #captainamerica #chrisevans #blackpanther #chadwickboseman #wintersoldier #sebastianstan #okoye #danaigurira #blackwidow #scarletjohansson #falcon #anthonymackie
The Iron Spider figure is possibly our best look yet at Spider-Man's new costume. It was glimpsed briefly at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming and can also been seen in posters and trailers for Avengers: Infinity War. The bearded, unmasked Captain America figure offers fans their first look at the hero's new shield. One of the series' most lesser-known figures, Proxima Midnight is a member of Thanos' Black Order and is expected to be a villain in the film. She stands out for being only one of a few female villains to be represented in the Marvel Legends line.
Buying all figures in the series (with the exception of Iron Man) will allow collectors to build Thanos, who comes with the Infinity Gauntlet but isn't wearing his helmet or his armor. It should be noted that fans who prefer Thanos in his traditional costume will be able to get their hands on a Wal-Mart exclusive of the comic book version of the character later in the year.
More Avengers: Infinity War figures may be unveiled later, when Hasbro announces the list of figures for Wave 2. At this point, only the Black Knight has been revealed.
