Just over 3 days ago we posted a mock up of the late Stan Lee's BAF image which was rumoured to have been released alongside the Killmonger / Ross and Bucky / Falcon Twin Packs.
Collectors earlier this year pre ordered in anticipation of getting the figure in a BAF format split between 2 purchases only to find out on release that the contents no longer included Stan "The Man" himself.
Hasbro commented by saying the the artwork or images wasn't released officially by Hasbro so couldn't comment on the strange occurrence leaving collectors in limbo as to when we would be getting this much sought after figure.
Reports suggests that the image rights to Stan Lee had been signed and agreed but the legal issues that arose earlier this year (2018) delayed the release of the figure.
Stan Lee had allegations against him for sexual harassment and misconduct which were later to be found as false.
Lee's passing caused a huge stir, with fans online swamping social channels with images, thoughts, memorabilia, vlogs to honour and commemorate his passing.
MLUK had posted a mock up image on our instagram asking Hasbro to give all the true believers and collectors a chance out there to now own the long awaited must have Legends figure which ould be the jewel in all Legend collectors crowns.
The post has been shared over 2000 times, been ripped and spread across multiple collectors communities and as of today has seen a number of petitions raised against Hasbro to have the figure produced and put into circulation in large numbers to give everyone a chance at having Stan Lee in their collection.
Big thank you goes to Andy Smith who is a valued #MLUK member for designing the artwork
We are aware that both Hasbro and HasbroPulse have seen the images but have yet to comment on the matter. We assume once all the legalities have been sorted and family, friends, colleagues and fans have had the chance to mourn and celebrate the life of Stan Lee, we would expect to see a release of this must have piece sometime in 2019
