Since Hasbro is making comic versions of a lot of their newer MCU stars I wonder if maybe Yelena could finally get a re-do at Walgreens?
Maybe all four are MCU tie ins:
Zemo for Falcon & Winter Soldier
Yelena for Black Widow, plus she'd be a ML 20th anniversary tie-in, too
Baron Mordo for Multiverse of Madness
Skurge for Love and Thunder

BTW - this is the Yelena I'd like to see:

That's a great idea to fill in some gaps in the comic releases! I'd love to see a "Before they were stars!" set of releases. Characters that have been featured in the MCU that have yet to have comic figures. Your list plus Mantis, Yondu, Mandarin, and et cetera.

Baron Zemo! YES! Another over priced 2nd hand market bullet dodged!

I've have great luck seeing Nova a LOT and whole waves of F&WS around here so I'm not to worried about Zemo or Binary.

I have a 4 store Walgreens route in a 5 mile radius of home and 4 in a 5 mile radius around work if I get desperate.

Have about 7 or 8 Walgreens near me...havent seen a new Legends figure in one since 2019. Almost all of them have no Legends at all on the shelves, and the ones that do have the likes of Lady Beetle or Spider-Woman. Funny also to see clearance tags on several of the empty toy shelves. How do you clearance things you don't have?

Unseen in eastern Kansas, nothing local on eBay either.
I spoke too soon! I popped by a rarely visited Walgreens and found my Nova. Now, for Quasar....

I'd like that Yelena made too.

Seeing that I ordered Quasar and Binary from overseas I really don't want Walgreens to get figures I desire.

I still hope to stumble on Nova and Zemo in the future but I, for the most part, accept that any Walgreens Figures will be an international traveler.

It just hurts having to treat "domestic" figures like imports.

Technically, wouldn't Black Widow/Yelena's 20th Marvel Legends Figure Anniversary be in 2024? Series 8, of which she was a part, came out in 2004. Just sayin'.

Would like to get her, whenever she becomes available.

Yep. And, for me, Silver Surfer too.

I am curious as to why it appears that he has 3 different gripping hands, but just one sword and no guns.
I noticed that too. Is QC so bad that they can't even get it right for their big reveal pieces too?

Thank you to the user who provided the UPC for Nova about a month or so ago. I had an employee at one of my local stores look up the WIC and it is 361-755. About two weeks ago, I asked an employee to put in an order for 2 or so. He put in an order of 10 to ensure they came. I walk in today and there are 8 on the shelf. Grabbed one.

If you're in the Boston area, they're at the 1630 Tremont location.

I'm glad I ordered Nova from Zavvi because I still haven't seen any in my area. Checked 2 stores recently and one had zero legends and the other had the Jean and moira they've had for months now.

Well its been confirmed in the Marvel Legends team interview with Dan Who that the Walgreens theme for 2022 is Super Villains. They also said one of the characters is not always thought of as a villain but at times could be a hero. The term “antihero” was used. Who do we think it could be?
