Yondu is one of those characters that has a richer history than most at Marvel Comics, and as far as the Marvel Legends line is concerned, is far underrepresented. That all changes this year, as the team has revealed a new Yondu figure, coming to Target as an exclusive unfortunately. But hey, as long as we are getting it, that is all that matters. My guess would be this is out in time for the movie in May, so probably will start showing up in stores in April. Preorders will be coming at a later date. You can check out the classic Yondu below.

I have already gotten used to the new bad packaging they are using. I don’t like it for these individual releases, but it is not bad on two packs. That being said, this one looks sharper than some of the other ones. At the end of the day, I open everything anyway.
Yondu will be available to preorder at a later date and in Target stores this spring.
