So it looks like the long rumored Haslab Marvel Legends Sentinel was revealed today. This big guy is 26Ē tall, LED lights, 72 points of articulation, and includes a Bastion figure. $350 by August 24, anyone biting on this? Iíd be partly tempted if we didnít know another Star Wars TVC one was going to be announced this year as well. I can really only swing maybe one of these type of projects each year. Looks like it is closing in on 5000 of the 6000 needed backers in the first 12 ish hours though, wow..

Hasbro is promising some bonuses to the backers if they hit some goals beyond the required 6,000 backers.  And based on the progress so far, theyíre probably going to exceed the initial goal soon.  ML collectors seem pretty enthusiastic about this campaign.  And you have to suspect that some speculators are going to buy some of these with the intention of flipping them, especially seeing how the secondary market price of the sail barge has more than doubled within a year itís release.

I donít have a clue who Bastion is or why he comes with a tiny Sentinel head, but the big figure looks dope. This one will hit the goal for sure, good choice by them.

One day. That's impressive!

The campaign is quickly approaching the first sweetener.  The backer count is over 6,800 and at 7,000 Hasbro will include an alternate Master Mold head.  I would not be surprised if they pass 7k tonight.

OMG.  This campaign just blew through the 7K mark, and it's going to hit 8K some time this afternoon.  Hasbro hasn't even been able to post what the 8K level would be offering to backers yet.

Found a random Iron Man 2020 on the pegs at Walgreens today, had no idea this was coming out anytime soon. It wasnít marked as an exclusive or anything either, but also no BAF part.

I was a big fan of the Machine Man miniseries where the character first debuted, so I grabbed him immediately. Will look nice fighting MM in my Legends display!

He is solo a Walgreen's Exclusive, not part of a BAF set.  Hit stores a couple of months back, but it was pretty quiet news with everything else going on in the world.  I feel like most Walgreen's exclusive stuff shows up like that out of no where.  They did a really nice job on this one - easily one of my favorite suits.

Had to make a Walgreens run last night and wound up snagging the Walgreens exclusive Moon Knight for Former JediDefender Poster Famine. They also had a few Iron Man 2020s. Haven't been in a WG since last fall searching for the Clone Kenobis that never hit, so it was KIND of refreshing to see new stuff among the mountain of Jyn Erso and Ant Man figures

Iíve been stopping in Walgreens every so often to check for Moon Knight as well, but nothing locally. The shelves are pretty full of Namor and Yellow Daredevils for the most part. I have seen the 2020 Iron Man though.

Finally found Moon Knight on Friday, and after holding him in my hands for a few minutes, ended up passing. May change my mind but so far not feeling much regret.

Thanks for the head's up.  I'll have to start looking for this guy.  I am just about maxed on my Marvel Legends, but this is too good of an upgrade over the older version.

The 90s Retro Spider-Man case I preordered arrived today. I've only opened the Spidey figure, but it's a true work of art. Highly poseable, and the new sculpt hides a TON of articulation.
