Last year, thousands of pop culture fans flocked to the Pop Insider‘s booth at New York Comic Con (NYCC) to get a first look at Hasbro’s massive Transformers Unicron project. During the convention, the figure was fully funded through the Hasbro Pulse HasLab platform — the second fan-backed HasLab campaign following the Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Jabba’s Sail Barge. Now it’s time to do it all again.
The HasLab Marvel Legends Series X-Men Marvel’s Sentinel action figure stands a massive 26.3 inches tall and features an internal frame comprised of 260 individual pieces. The Sentinel contains LED lights in its head and chest, and boasts 72 points of articulation — 20 in each hand alone — and comes with an 18-inch tentacle accessory and a Marvel Legends Series 6-inch Bastion figure with alternate Sentinel Prime head.
The first-ever, Marvel-branded project to utilize the HasLab platform debuted on Hasbro Pulse this afternoon. According to Hasbro, a minimum of 6,000 figures must be backed at $349.99 through Hasbro Pulse by 11:59 ET on Aug. 24, but that should be a non-issue. As of this writing, 3,161 Marvel fans have thrown down the cash to bring a Sentinel home.
Fans can purchase the Sentinel through Hasbro Pulse in the U.S. and Canada, as well as select participating retailers internationally.
