Marvel Legends 3.75" Retro - FIRESTAR!

Marvel Legends 3.75" Retro Series - Wave 7 - FireStar - Hasbro 2022

So today is my birthday and and I think the fates aligned to give me this perfect gift. Firestar was the first superhero I ever became obsessed with. The Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends cartoon was a regular viewing staple in my home in the early eighties, and Angelica Jones commanded my full attention. Her monochromatic costume, her cool mask, and her flame powers were a perfect recipe for awesome. (I realize her powers are technically microwave, not fire, but at that age I was constantly being told that flames were dangerous and bad, so I just saw Firestar as the living embodiment of something forbidden and fascinating). This Marvel Legends Retro series is making up for the gender gap in all the toy lines of my youth. I'm always excited to see what's next and I'm thrilled that they are sticking to late 70s and early 80s design aesthetics. This Firestar wasn't supposed to be released until September, but I'm thrilled she showed up just in time for the perfect birthday post. Let's check her out below!

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Firestar with her 2009 Marvel Universe figure.

Here are the Marvel Legends Retro ladies so far:

I was shocked to find that I don't have the Iceman figure in my collection. I had memories of buying it, but I realize now that the purchase was for a friend and he never made it into my collection. So here are two of the Amazing Friends.

And here is my Firestar collection so far. From Left to Right: Eaglemoss, Bootlego, Marvel Universe, Bowen Minibust, Marvel Legends Retro, Marvel Legends, ToyFare ToyBiz, DST Marvel Gallery, Marvel Legends, Mini-Mates, DST Minibust, and Heroclix.

I can never decide if I like group pics better with flash or without, so lately I have been giving both.



  1. Happy birthday! Great figure. Didn't realize there was so much Firestar product out there, which is awesome.
