Marvel Legends Red Guardian & Melina two-pack.
Just earlier today Hasbro revealed a Marvel Legend two-pack based on the upcoming Black Widow film. In the two-pack, you get an updated figure of the Red Guardian and a brand new Melina figure. I know that they released a Red Guardian in the Black Widow wave that came out in early 2020 and that figure didn’t look exactly how David Harbor’s Red Guardian looked in the trailer of the film. It was like if the figure was based on some scenes when his character was younger in the films and it didn’t include a helmeted head which fans really wanted.
I have to say this figure looks even better and more accurate to what we saw in the trailer and the likeness to Harbor is excellent and he comes with some awesome accessories too! I love the inclusion of the interchangeable bare hands and an action figure of himself! I don’t think that’s been done in the Marvel Legends line before.
The Melina figure looks equally excellent. The likeness to Rachael Wiesz is fantastic. As soon as I saw the figure I could tell it is supposed to be her. It looks like she shares some parts of the white-suited Black Widow figure that came out as a deluxe figure the same time the wave hit store shelves. Of course, there are some new parts too. She looks to come with the same accessories as Widow with batons, pistols (though they may be molded in the holsters as we don’t see any shots of the figure holding them) as well as a grappling hook and some interchangeable hands.
I’m definitely interested in getting this two-pack especially for the Red Guardian figure which looks fantastic. Plus I need to pick up some of the Black Widow figures as I have missed them for obvious reasons, if they do sell out I hope they restock them in time for the film whenever it’ll be released.
The two-pack is expected to be released late summer 2021 and here’s an official press release from Hasbro:
