Hasbro has always been pretty good about how it handles San Diego Comic Con exclusives. For the most part you can eventually get figures that get the glossed up SDCC presentation later. We’d already seen the Defenders SDCC set and today Hasbro revealed another Marvel Studios set — Red Skull with the Tesseract.
Fans can commemorate 10 years of epic blockbusters with new MARVEL LEGENDS SERIES figures in the MARVEL STUDIOS: THE FIRST TEN YEARS collection! Imagine JOHANN SCHMIDT claiming the title of RED SKULL and controlling the power of the TESSERACT. Comes with a 6-inch-scale RED SKULL figure, featuring movie-inspired design from CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER and premium articulation and design.
The TESSERACT lights up and features alternating light patterns, as well as a seamless battery install for an authentic look and feel. Includes figure, accessory, and electronic TESSERACT. The MARVEL LEGENDS SERIES RED SKULL & ELECTRONIC TESSERACT will be for sale at San Diego Comic-Con 2018. Limited quantities of this item will be available at select conventions and select online retailers after the convention in the relevant market (including HasbroToyShop.com where available). Good while supplies last.

This is an interesting set since we’re already getting a Red Skull in the Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years collection. That figure can also double for an underwhelming black and red Hydra figure. I hate the lack of color in the Hydra designs, not the effort of the figures. It’s a little weird to me in the sense that we still don’t have a perfect comic book version Red Skull. Granted his attire changed all the time, but I’m still holding out for a classic green jumpsuit Red Skull figure. For now, the best option remains the Mezco Toyz figure.
What do you think of this one? Interested or thinking this will be one exclusive you skip?
