I can practically feel the money flying out of my wallet already... especially with that higher US$20 MSRP
Ultron, Rhino, Wasp, Kraven, Chameleon, Ghost Rider, Hulkbuster Iron Man, and Vision were among the slew of Marvel Legends that Hasbro showed off in its press briefing. It's hard to appreciate the massive glut of figures shown (including some slated waves for guys I thought were MIA) but appreciate them you shall!
Join me after the jump.

Walgreens? Why'd it have to be Walgreens?

Now in Low Definition
SDCC and WonFes may have been almost a month ago at this point, but many of its collectibles are still on our minds. Tian recently posted the top ten things he was looking forward to from these cons and, because I'm far more excitably (and exceedingly less orderly), my own highlights list is nowhere near that short.
See many of my favorites after the jump.

There might have been actual Stark tech there
Hot Toys' 1/6-scale figures were featured at Sideshow's booth as usual. This year they had a couple of vehicles, some figures from The Dark Knight and Avengers, and lots of Iron Men. So many Iron Men.
