Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme Doctor Strange has landed in San Diego…in action figure form, that is. Benedict Cumberbatch will likely make an appearance during Saturday’s panels to promote — we already know director Scott Derrickson will be there — but Hasbro revealed the new Stephen Strange in full costume as part of their Marvel Legends toy line.
Revealed this morning at a Hasbro brand preview breakfast at the Con, the Marvel Legends toy line features figures for Doctor Strange based on his appearance in the recent Defenders comics, as well as fellow mystic Brother Voodoo. But there are at least two movie tie-ins — Cumberbatch’s Strange (complete with multiple hand gestures and some spell work) and Chiwetel Ejiofor as sorcerer Baron Mordo.
Also noteworthy is the Dormammu figure. We know that Mads Mikkelsen is playing the main villain in Doctor Strange, but fans have been wondering whether the demon from another dimension would show his fiery face. The character’s presence in the Marvel Legends reveals may very well have zero connection with the film, though it’s intriguing that two out of the three Doctor Strange figures are made in the likeness of the film’s characters. Hasbro did not immediately respond to Collider’s request for comment. Elsewhere, the Marvel booth on the convention floor put some of the costumes on display, including those for Strange, Mordo, and Tilda Swinton’s The Ancient One.

Doctor Strange also features Rachel McAdams as a fellow surgeon of Strange’s, Benedict Wong as Wong, Scott Adkins, Michael Struhlbarg, and Amy Landecker. The story centers on renown neurosurgeon Stephen Strange who loses the use of his hands in a car accident. In a desperate attempt to search out a cure, he stumbles into the world of magic and alternate dimensions.
