In an interesting reversal of stereotypes, it apparently takes a big-name black superhero-type to sell the white guy in a suit, as Agent Coulson – previously made by Hot Toys – hits Marvel Legends scale in a SHIELD three-pack also featuring Nick Fury and Agent Hill. According to my sources at Hasbro’s PR company, this three-pack is the only way to get Coulson and Hill at this time, with no future releases currently scheduled. You can order it online now.

It’s important to note that these are the movie versions of Coulson and Hill – as of the last time I talked to anyone at Hasbro, there were no plans to make figures based on any Marvel TV shows, so if you want Kyle MacLachlan – as we all do, right? – keep fingers crossed that his character lives to see the Inhumans movie. I suspect that may change if Daredevil, as rumored, does ultimately end up in a kickass red costume.
