If you’ve ever wanted your action figure collection to have the Collector and his collection, you can now collect it as a part of Hasbro’s SDCC 2016 exclusive offerings. I’m talking, of course, about the 3.75 Inch Scale Marvel Legends Collectors Vault set, developed in collaboration with Hasbro. If you’re not familiar with the collector from the comics, he’s one of the Elders of the Universe, who began collecting strange artifacts and lifeforms from across the cosmos in order to maintain his sanity. In the Marvel cinematic universe, the Collector’s that quirky guy portrayed by Benicio Del Toro at the end of Thor: The Dark World.
Details on the Marvel Legends Collectors Vault
Eight items are included in the box set, 5 characters, and 3 accessories. The characters included are:
- The Collector, (shown in his comic form, and not resembling Del Toro)
- Cosmo the Spacedog, a Soviet telepathic dog (inspired by Laika), and member of the Guardians of the Galaxy
- Lockjaw, the famous and infinitely cute bulldog member of the Pet Avengers
- Moon-boy, a furry child best known as a companion of the Devil Dinosaur (a character famous in the 80s)
- Howard the Duck, known to current audiences as the duck guy from the post-credits scene in Guardians of the Galaxy, (or, if you’re a little older, a Marvel character from the 70s, and the star of George Lucas’ ill-advised sci-fi comedy adaptation from the 80s.)
The items / accessories included The Zodiac Key, the Casket of Ancient Winters, and The Wand of Watoomb. The packaging is also collector friendly and great for displaying, and features some amazing artwork.
Purchasing the Marvel Legends Collectors Vault
In addition to being available at SDCC 2016, the Marvel Legends Collectors Vault will also be purchasable at the Fan Expo in Canada in September. In addition, if you can’t make it to the con, a small number will apparently be sold on Hasbro’s online store. The price for the set will be $69.99.
