Hasbro has just announced new figures for their latest series of Marvel Legends action figures. Also included in the reveal are the Build-A-Figure for the series and an exclusive two-pack. These new figures are inspired by Thor: Ragnarok, and are sure to impress fans with the amazing detail and articulation the toyline has become known for.
The new wave features three comic book-inspired figures and three movie figures. Thor: Ragnarok versions of Hela, Thor, and Loki will be included in the wave alongside the previously shown figures of Thor (Jane Foster), Ares, and Odinson (the unworthy Thor.) The Jane Foster incarnation of Thor and Odinson are re-releases of the same figures that were included in the SDCC 2017 Marvel Legends exclusive box set with Malekith, Bor, and Ulik.
The new Hela figure comes with a sword, and an interchangeable Cate Blanchett head without the mask. Thor includes a helmet, an accessory that's been missing from previous movie versions. The Loki figure has a removable headdress. Each figure in the new series will also contain a piece that will build Gladiator Hulk. A towering and imposing figure, Gladiator Hulk comes with fully-detailed armor, a helmet, a giant hammer, and an ax.

This is the first of two waves expected to contain Thor: Ragnarok figures. The second wave will be revealed later this year, possible at Comic-Con. The Gladiator Hulk series is the seventh Marvel Legends wave to be released in 2017, making this the most waves the toyline has released in a single year. Hasbro has already released two Guardians of the Galaxy series, one for the X-Men, and two for Spider-Man. A series inspired by Netflix's Defenders is due this fall.
Hasbro also unveiled a Target exclusive two-pack of Thor and Valkyrie. Both figures are based on their appearances in Thor: Ragnarok. The two-pack appears to include the sword Dragonfang. In the comic books, Dragonfang was a sword given to Valkyrie by Doctor Strange when she joined the Defenders. The set also contains interchangeable hands for Thor and two more weapons. The version of Thor in the two-pack has the same look as the one in the new Marvel Legends, except that it seems to be missing the helmet.
The Gladiator Hulk series will be available this fall, with each figure priced at $20. The Thor and Valkyrie two-pack will be $40, and available only at Target.
