Have you heard about HASCON? If you’re a Marvel Legend’s fiend like us, we’re sure you have. For those of you who are out of the loop, HASCON is Hasbro’s first-ever convention that’s dedicated exclusively to their family of toys. From Transformers to Play-Doh, you’ll be able to see everything that’s happening in Hasbro’s world, as well as get your hands on some exclusive merch!
For us here at Toy Thug, the biggest exclusive has to be a Marvel Legends figure of Deadpool. Now, I know, I know, we were lucky enough to get a Legends figure of Deadpool last year. Well, this year at HASCON, you’ll be able to get your hands on Deadpool during his X-Force days. Check out the picture below.
Upon comparison, this figure is just a repaint of last year's...but that doesn’t stop any of us from being pumped about it.
This is just one of many exclusives to be available at HASCON. If you’re a Transformers fan, you’ll be knee-deep in some awesome stuff. How about an Optimus Prime power bank? Yeah, we’re not kidding.
How about Star Wars? That’s got to perk some ears around here. There’s a Star Wars Black Series Captain Rex headed to HASCON and I’ll be damned if it doesn’t get the blood pumping. Take a look.
They’re saying this Captain Rex figure is the second figure in the Star Wars Black Series to implement the “Photo Real” process. To speak truthfully, we don’t know what that means, but it has something to do with how the color is applied to the figure itself. The future is now.
This Captain Rex Black Series figure had us sweating because we didn’t think we’d be able to get our hands on it. Thankfully, they announced that it’s just an early release for HASCON, and it’ll be heading to a wider audience later in the year. Bullet dodged.
So what do you guys think? Are these exclusives worth getting your hands on? If you’re a fan of Toy Thug, you’ve got to have some love for Marvel Legends and the Star Wars Black Series. Shall we road trip it?
