On Tuesday, Hasbro announced their final figure of 2022 to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Marvel Legends. This time, Franklin Richards (son of Reed Richards and Sue Storm) with the Turg accessory.

I’m not a huge fan of the character, but it’s a nice figure that comes with a nice assortment of accessories. No release or pricing information has been released yet, but that should be coming soon.

Oddly, toy scooper Rectangular (with an impeccable track record) originally revealed that this figure would be released as part of a two-pack with Franklin’s sister, Valeria. Since Hasbro has revealed individual figures from multipacks before, that may still be the case.

Speaking of Rectangular, let’s find out why most of you clicked on this article in the first place: The upcoming Marvel Legends Beyond the Spider-Verse wave These numbers haven’t been officially announced yet, but Rektangular got its hands on some leaked images thanks to @laserpants81 and @cloudnetwork.

As you can see, the wave will consist of:

  • Miles Morales
  • Spider-Gwen
  • Spider-Man 2099 (pictured individually)
  • Jessica Drew
  • Spider-Punk
  • The Spot
  • Peter B. Parker

Another toy scooper, Sergio.TheCollector, got carded images of the entire wave except for Jessica Jones. He also got individually packaged shots of Spider-Gwen and Spider-Punk.

Look, if anyone’s going to jump at the chance to complain about Hasbro and/or Marvel Legends these days, it’s me. But a lot of the complaints I’m currently seeing about these figures are the way they’re styled…which is fine if that’s not your taste, but they’re based on very stylized/animated model. Additionally, the figures don’t come in horrible windowless packaging, which is something we can be happy about.

I also want to note that Gwen’s headsculpt looks incredible. If Miles looks as good as the promo shot, I might have to break down and get them both.

The wave is generally assumed to be a Target exclusive, so preorders should be announced sometime in the next two months.
