Picking up from Part 1 of our unboxing report, we will be introduce No.6-10 of the ten boxed sets from Hasbro's Marvel Legends: Marvel Studio The First 10 Years collection. So let's cut the small talk and step right in to the main event!
▼ Our five stars of the day. The side box art can be arranged to reveal a sprawling mosaic of classic Marvel scenes. Combine all ten sets in the series for the complete tenth anniversary art! Now, let's get to the good stuff...
▼ No. 6 Ronan the Accuser from 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy. A Kree fanatic, Ronan was deeply disaffected by the peace treaty between the Kree Empire and Xandar's Nova Empire. Allying himself with Thanos, he promises to bring the Titan the Orb in exchange for the destruction of the Nova Empire. He was ultimately confronted by Star-Lord and the Guardians of the Galaxy during his invasion of Xandar, destroyed by the sheer energy of the Power Stone.
▼ Includes Ronan's war hammer. Heads up Guardians fans, because this is the first time that the Marvel Legends series has adapted movie Ronan!
▼ The figure captures Ronan's black and silver armor, as well as his unique Kree headdress.
▼ The drapes are made from a soft rubber material, with no noticeable hindrance on the articulation.
▼ The head sculpt, depicting Lee Pace covered in make up with bulging veins and bloodshot eyes.
▼ The war hammer is enshrined with the power stone, accurately depicting the rugged texture of the hammer and staff.
▼ The articulation is somewhat limited due to the waist guard.
▼ Ronan's head, headdress and shoulder armor are all connected and will move together, which looks somewhat awkward at select angles.
▼ But find the right angle and pose and you realize that this is one menacing figure!
▼ Since the participants are both here, let's get this dance-0ff started!
▼ No. 7 Hulk and Hulkbuster 2-pack from 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron. Recreate the classic Hulkbuster fight from the film with this figure pack!
▼ Hulk and Hulkbuster are both plus-size characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so naturally the box packaging is the largest out of all ten sets.
▼ Scientist Bruce Banner transformed into the Hulk after being exposed to gamma radiation. As Hulk, he has absurd amounts of strength and destructive power, but sacrifices most of his mental function. In the films, the coexistence of Banner and Hulk is one of the key conflicts that the Avengers must confront. This Hulk figure is a repaint of the Avengers version with a new roaring head portrait and bloodshot eyes indicating Scarlet Witch's mind control.
▼ The figure is painted with a grayish, less colorful green for a grittier feel.
▼ The brand new head sculpt with red paint in the eye area for a film accurate look. Hulk looks pretty pissed off here~
▼ Hasbro made sure not to leave out the painted chest hairs~
▼ Veins are molded and further colored for emphasis.
▼ "That's my secret Captain. I ‘m always angry."
▼ "HULK SMASH!!!!"
▼ The hip utilizes the old attachment joint design, but they are stable as long as you adjust them adequately.
▼ The Hulkbuster, officially the Mark XLIV (44), was jointly developed by Tony Stark and Bruce Banner for the purpose of containing an out of control Hulk. It is normally stored in an orbiting satellite and can be delivered to Earth via the Veronica system. The Mark 44, also the largest Iron Man suit, can integrate with Stark's Mark 43 armor for combat. This Hulkbuster is a recolor of a previous Build-A-Figure (BAF) version with a more metallic red and gold.
▼ Apart from the main red/gold color scheme, select joints and gears are painted a metallic silver.
▼ The figure recreates Hulkbuster's flat-headed design. If the head could open to reveal the Mark 43 then that would be absolute perfection.
▼ Gradient paint used for the chest arc reactor.
▼ The figure's large size does not impede its joint articulation, easily allowing you to recreate dynamic action poses!
▼ With well-designed ankle joints, the Hulkbuster can easily stand upright.
▼ Battle between the giants!
▼ "Dance-off! You and me bro!"
▼ An Ultra-Heavyweight Class duel!
▼ No. 8 Ant-Man and Yellowjacket 2-pack from 2015's Ant-Man, featuring the villain Yellowjacket in Marvel Legends form for the first time ever!
▼ Includes shrunk-down versions of Ant-Man and Yellowjacket as well as an unmasked Scott Lang head portrait.
▼ Ant-Man, AKA Scott Lang, is a skilled computer expert and ex-convict, inheriting the specialized suit from an elderly Hank Pym and becoming the second Ant-Man. He can shrink or grow in size by manipulating Pym Particles and can control ants of all species to aid him in combat. This figure is a recolor of the 2015 version with two new head portraits.
▼ Completely replicating the outer mechanisms of the Ant-Man suit.
▼ The Ant-Man helmet has corrected the open-mouth design of previous figures, accurately depicting the in-film helmet design.

▼ Detailed recreation of the suit and utility belt design.
▼ Like past versions, this figure possesses a high degree of articulation.
▼ Kneeling down? No problem!
▼ Includes a miniature Ant-Man so he can shrink and grow back!
▼ Yellowjacket, born Darren Cross, was once Hank Pym's pupil, taking over Pym Technologies and trying constantly to unlock the secret potential of the Pym Particles, ultimately developing the Yellowjacket suit for commercial use, with Hydra among interested buyers. Technically, Yellowjacket refers to the suit and not Cross himself. In the comics, Yellowjacket is one of Hank Pym's split identities. This character is making its long-anticipated figure form debut!
▼ The helmet incorporates translucent pieces for a two-layered structure
▼ The back stingers each possess three joints for articulation.
▼ An excellent recreation of the Yellowjacket armor!
▼ The main figure coupled with posable stingers make for a highly playable figure!
▼ This figure might just be one of our favorites!
▼ Recreate the film's iconic final battle!
▼ Welcome to the quantum realm. Everyone ready for Ant-Man and the Wasp?
▼ No. 9 Captain America and Crossbones 2-pack from 2016's Captain America: Civil War.

After the incident in Nigeria, Rogers had a falling out with Tony Stark over the Sokovia Accords, allying with best friend Winter Soldier, Falcon, Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch and Ant-Man against the Iron Man-led governmental faction. further diving the Avengers. This figure has matched past iterations with a brand new head portrait.
▼ There are no back mechanisms from which to attach the shield.

▼ The unmasked head sculpt captures Chris Evan's face and features.

In Captain America: Winter Soldier, Rumlow suffered severe burns and injuries, becoming the global terrorist Crossbones while plotting his revenge against SHIELD and Captain America. In the clash against the Avengers in Nigeria, Crossbones detonates a bomb in a suicidal effort to kill Captain America. Scarlet Witch's intervention saved the Captain but accidentally killed dozens of civilians, sparking significant public outcry against the Avengers and becoming the catalyst for the Sokovia Accords.
▼ Crossbones is decked out in finely detailed military apparel and gear.
▼ The head sculpt with printed white skull paint. Crossbones' facial scars are visible through the eye holes.
▼ The unmasked head sculpt featuring a heavily disfigured Frank Grillo. Looks pretty good, don't you think?
▼ The torso armor accurately depicts the Crossbones X. Rumlow is heavily armed from head to toe, but the armaments cannot be detached from the figure.

▼ No. 10 Iron Man Mark L (50), Thanos and Doctor Strange 3-pack from 2018's Avengers: Infinity War. All three characters have huge roles in Infinity War, so it is fair to say that this is the grand finale for this 10 year anniversary collection!
▼ Includes an instruction manual for the Iron Man figure. Do actually read it.
▼ Includes Iron Man's interchangeable fists and a pair of repulsor blast effect pieces, an additional Thanos' head portrait, and interchangeable hand and magic effect piece for Doctor Strange.

▼ Recreate Iron Man in flight!
▼ Works as a night light too!
▼ Thanos, Mad Titan and last of his kind, is hellbent on halving the universe's population so that the survivors can prosper. To achieve his goal, he has set out to find and collect the six Infinity Stones, which each control one aspect of existence. His quest ended with a literal snap as he finished what he set out to accomplish.

After realizing the threat that Thanos poses to the universe, Strange teams up with Iron Man, Spider-Man and half the Guardians (Star-Lord, Drax and Mantis), confronting Thanos in a final showdown on his home world of Titan. After viewing some 14 million possible futures, Strange gives up the stone in a desperate gambit, disintegrating after the "snap." This figure is a marked improvement on the 2016 version, with a new Cloak of Levitation and an interchangeable right arm wielding the time manipulation magic of the Time Stone.
