Marvel fans will soon be able to purchase a life-size replica of the Infinity Gauntlet from Hasbro's Marvel Legends line. The replica was unveiled at Toy Fair 2018. The glove is sculpted to perfectly resemble the glove worn by Josh Brolin's Thanos in the upcoming blockbuster film, Avengers: Infinity War.
Marvel Legends collectors have plenty to look forward to in 2018. Hasbro started off the new year with a wave of Black Panther toys. Next up is a Spider-Man series with a Lizard build-a-figure, followed by a Deadpool line with a Sasquatch build-a-figure. Hasbro is also expected to release two waves for Avengers: Infinity War, one series for Venom, and a second series for Deadpool 2. Exclusives for outlets such as Wal-Mart and Walgreens are also slated for release. Marvel Cinematic Universe 10th Anniversary figures were announced this week.
At Toy Fair 2018, Hasbro revealed a Marvel Legends life-size replica of the Infinity Gauntlet, complete with all six Infinite Stones. Measuring at 19.5 inches, the impressively sized gauntlet has fully articulated fingers, allowing the wearer to easily clench the fingers into a fist.

The gauntlet also includes electronic lights to illuminate all six Infinity Stones. When activated, the gauntlet can emit sound effects. Three AA batteries will be needed for the light and sound effects. The fully-detailed gauntlet appears to be a solid addition to any Marvel fan's collection. The detail found in the glove seems to effectively capture the power of the Infinity Gauntlet, a weapon capable of destroying the universe itself.
Looking at the gauntlet, it's clear that of all Marvel characters in 2018, no character is getting more love from toy companies like Hasbro than the "biggest and baddest" villain of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As the breakout star of Avengers: Infinity War, the Mad Titan is definitely getting his fair share of the spotlight in the coming months. The comic book version of Thanos will soon get a Marvel Legends Wal-Mart Exclusive 6" figure, which will mark the first time that Thanos has ever received a Marvel Legends figure as a single release. The MCU version of the Mad Titan will be the build-a-figure for Hasbro's first Marvel Legends Avengers: Infinity War wave.
The Marvel Legends Infinity Gauntlet will retail at $99.99 and can be purchased at HasbroToyShop.com and most major retailers. The gauntlet will be available in Spring 2018.
