Hasbro revealed its massive Marvel Legends HasLabs project – an X-Men Sentinel. The GI Joe US Flagg remains my all-time figure holy grail, but this looks to be the adult version for me. Seriously if money (and display space) weren’t an option, I’d amass an army of these guys. As is, it seems like it’d be pretty hard to resist getting at least one.
According to the Hasbro team, this Sentinel is inspired by the version that debuted in House of X/Powers of X.
Here’s all the features:
- 26.3-inch (669 mm) Sentinel figure
- LEDs in the head and chest (2x AAA batteries required, not included)
- 18-inch Sentinel “tentacle” accessory
- Marvel Legends 6-inch Bastion figure with 6-Inch alternate Sentinel Prime head
- Marvel Insider Points Redemption code (70,000 points per purchase, limit 2 code redemptions per account) & X-Men #14 (1963) digital comic to read in the Marvel Comics app (available in iOS and Android). Open to US residents 18+. Terms apply.
For some perspective, the Sentinel tentacle is taller than the original Toy Biz Sentinel figure.

The purchase window closes Aug. 24 and it will be released Fall 2021.
If that wasn’t enough, Hasbro is including a Bastion figure is coming as well with alternate Sentinel Prime head.
One side effect of this HasLabs version is that it might cause a few collectors to start selling off their previous Hasbro and Toy Biz Sentinels so I might be able to work in some new additions to my four Sentinel squad.
Dwight and Ryan did reiterate that a Marvel Legends House of X wave comprised of both brand-new characters and the modern looks of fan favorites will be coming next year. Hopefully we’ll get to see them as part of the San Diego Comic Con reveals. Speaking of, Dwight also teased a book with an H on it, which definitely adds a bit more to the speculation that the SDCC exclusive will be some sort of Hellfire Club pack. Yes please.
At $349 he might not immediately sell out, but it is a very impressive figure. You can pre-order the figure now at Hasbro Pulse.
