HasLab is entering the realm of Jumbo Machinders at just a tad over 26 inches tall. This newest big and bad Sentinel has 72 points of articulation. Adding totally movable fingers and a double jointed knees and elbows and one 18 inch tentacle. It is the largest Marvel Legends action figure ever made. It makes the old Build a Figure look like a baby Sentinel. Also included in this monster is a nice effect light up LED eyes and chest plate. This version of the Sentinel is inspired by the House of X and Powers of X comic book series.
However, it is not the Mother Mold or Master Mold we thought it might be when Hasbro teased the foot in an earlier Fan Friday Live Stream. This has now been proven wrong again as the first Tier of extra backers has been revealed as a Mastermind head. Each HasLab Sentinel will come with an evil Bastion Figure that also has an extra Sentinel Prime head. Because they assume people will be army-building this HasLab project. Knowing Marvel Legends collector’s, I do not doubt that will happen in fact day one into the backing and it is already fully funded. I already put myself down for two before this article was even finished. How many are you in for? I am hearing of vendors and resellers buying in upwards of 40 using multiple peoples accounts.
How much is this big guy? Lets talk technical bits for a second. He is $349.99 including shipping to the US. Funding for this project closes August 24 2020 and is shipping by Q3 2021. Hasbro needs 6,000 people to back this project and every 1,000 over that they will include even more add-ons to the Sentinel. This project is now open for funding at Hasbro Pulse.
X-Men Legends Marvel’s Sentinel
Its body a towering, technological marvel, the Sentinel scans the world for its quarry, a searching light emanating from its chest, its glowing eyes a warning… and a threat. Programmed with only one objective, to destroy all mutant life on Earth, the Sentinel will not hesitate, will not falter, and will never ever stop hunting.
Rising from the pages of Marvel comics, appearing in everything from cartoons to movies to video games, the Sentinel is as a monumental part of Marvel lore, an iconic enemy of the X-Men, and, now, the first-ever Marvel Legends HasLab project.
Hasbro Pulse invites you to join us in bringing this project to life, with all the features and detailing you know and love from the Marvel Legends 6-inch line:

We’ve been hoping to make this project a reality for a long time and now, with your help, we hope to do just that.
Sentinels have been a part of the X-Men story since their first appearance in X-Men #14 (1965). From the MK I model built by Bolivar Trask to the menacing figures of modern comic storylines, Sentinels have been one of the most dangerous foes of the X-Men. And we wanted to reflect that towering and intimidating presence into the Marvel Legends line.
Along with the Sentinel figure, we’re including a 6-inch Bastion figure to represent the humanoid face of the Sentinels. Bastion was created when Sentinel Master Mold absorbed the Sentinel prototype Nimrod. The X-Men forced it through the portal known as Siege Perilous and Bastion emerged: a human/Sentinel hybrid that eventually became as anti-mutant as the original Sentinels. And if you followed all that, this is the HasLab project for you.
We need to hit 6,000 backers to fully fund this project. But we don’t want to stop there. For each 1,000 additional backers, we’ll unlock more marvelous stuff for every single backer. We can’t tell you what those are just yet, but we have big plans…
To celebrate the amazingly successful funding of The X-Men Marvel Legends Sentinel HasLab project, we’re giving you fans a sneak peak at the Tier 1 Marvel Legends Master Mold alternate head accessory that will be unlocked at 7,000 backers. A big thank you to all of our awesome fans who have backed this project so far!
This unit has sustained critical damage! The X-Men Marvel Legends Sentinel HasLab project has reached an uncanny 8,000 backers and unlocked the alternate battle damaged head and hand accessory! The next tier will be unlocked at 9,000 backers!

A MASSIVE MUTANT HUNTER
This 26.3-inch (669 mm) Sentinel figure is the biggest Marvel Legends figure ever made, with its frame comprised of 260 individual pieces.
It has 72 points of articulation — 20 in each hand alone — which means it’s incredibly poseable and will look awesome in any display.
We also included LEDs in the head and chest, so that the menacing glow of the Sentinels eyes and power source really shines through. It also comes with a Sentinel “tentacle” accessory, which attaches to its palm and is perfect to wrap around an unsuspecting Marvel Legends X-Men figure.
The Bastion figure 6-inch figure has 30 points of articulation and also comes with an alternate Sentinel Prime head.
