If you happen to be perusing the halls at San Diego Comic Con this year, you'll find a bevy of exclusive collectibles within your grasp. There will be some though that are more coveted than others, and Hasbro's latest exclusive is definitely one of those items.
Hasbro has revealed new high res photos of its phenomenal Battle For Asgard 5 Pack, a set that will focus on the Asgardian side of the Marvel Universe. The set includes Thor, Odinson, Bor, Ulik, and Malekith, all featuring the notable Marvel Legends style of articulation. Even better than the sculpts themselves is the stylish packaging, which comes with a foldable 5 sided display with art from Tyler Jacobson. There will be opportunities to get some after the show, but Marvel Legends sets like this can be quite hard to come by even then, so if you happen to be there you might consider going ahead and picking it up.
You can pick one up at the Hasbro booth at SDCC for $99.99, and you can check out more images of the set in the gallery. You can also find the official release below.
