NEW Q&A Round-up !!!


Recommended Posts



Here's the only three sites I could find Q&A's for October. Hopefully we still this sites Q&A to look forward to. I think there is actually a future to legends based off of these answers, but there is far to much puniverse for my liking. Just the same there appears to be some hope for fans of Marvel Legends afterall.



FIGURES.COM: The first wave of Marvel Universe 3 ¾" figures have been dubbed the Fury Files. Please tell us more about the reasoning behind this theme and what fans can expect.


HASBRO: Nick Fury and the Fury Files are a huge part of the Marvel Universe toyline. This theme actually spans the entire first year and you can get a sneak peek now on the Fury Files website - FuryFiles.com.


Collectors will get an original document from Nick's top secret files in every package as well a code that can be used on FuryFiles.com to unlock additional memos and information. All of this original content has been created in partnership with Marvel publishing so that it ties in tightly with what's going on in the Marvel U at this very moment. Fans can expect to get exclusive access to all sorts of SHIELD memos and secrets with every purchase.


FIGURES.COM: Can fans expect future Marvel Universe waves to be characterized by a uniting theme such as the "Fury Files" and what themes or types of themes can we expect to see in future waves?


HASBRO: The Fury Files is actually the theme for all of 2009 so we'll be focusing on that for the first 5 waves of figures. You will see some other sub-themes come into play, but Fury and SHIELD is the dominating storyline.


Make sure to check out the Fury Files website in two weeks when we launch "Bullets from Fury," a new feature that will be updated daily and penned by Nick Fury himself!


FIGURES.COM: Hasbro has taken Marvel into the successful, morphing world of Transformers. Aside from the revealed Hulk and Iron Man Transformers, what are a few new Marvel Transformers fans can expect to see soon?


HASBRO: There's a new Human Torch Jet and a Wolverine 4x4 truck hitting shelves right about now along with a new black costume Spider-Man (motorcycle) and a Savage Grey version of the Hulk (tank). Fans can also look forward to their favorite shield-slinging Avenger along with a couple of other new characters in the subsequent wave.


FIGURES.COM:</B itxtvisited="1"> Hasbro recently took on the Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon with a line of figures. With a wealth of Marvel animated titles on the way -- including Hulk: Gamma Corps, Iron Man: Armored Adventures, and others -- does Hasbro have plans to turn any of these animated shows into toy lines and, if so, which ones and when?


HASBRO: We can't reveal too many specifics here but we can tell you that we've seen some sneak peaks of the upcoming 2009 animation and we're all fired up. You can rest assured that kids and fans alike will see some cool toys resulting from all of this awesome animation.


FIGURES.COM: Are there currently any plans to release a toy line based on the upcoming live-action Wolverine film and, if so, when can we expect to see the figures, what scale will they be, and which characters can fans expect to get?


HASBRO: The short answer is yes. If you were at SDCC you probably saw the teaser banner in the Hasbro booth that displayed the Wolverine logo with a "Coming in Spring 2009". Can't give you much more than that but if you're a fan of the rebel with claws... you're going to be happy.





SUPERHEROTIMES (SHT): Articulation and poseability are clearly major concerns on the upcoming Marvel Universe 3 ¾" figures. For display purposes, will all figures include standard holes in the bottom of their feet and are there any plans to release bases with the figures and/or separately?




HASBRO: There will be peg holes on the feet for all figures in the line. We're not planning to include stands with the single carded figures in 2009 but

you might see them in another 3.75" offering .




SHT: Since the initial Marvel Universe information began circulating online, there has been a great deal of talk regarding the lack of female figures. Which female figures can we expect to join the heroes in the new line and when can we expect this to happen?




HASBRO: The goal with this line is to cover the broadest spectrum of characters in the Universe; with that being said, there will be most definitely be more female figures in line, you just have to be patient. We've only announced the first three waves! If we have our way you'll get some characters that you've never seen before. Nothing is off the table! Except maybe Agatha Harkness...




FAN QUESTION: Could fans possibly see Marvel Legends from super groups not currently in the limelight? Groups like the Thunderbolts, Hellfire Club, The Runaways, The Exiles, New Warriors, Young Avengers, Hellions, Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and former Xavier students are just a some of the potential in the Marvel universe...




HASBRO: You left out Heroes for Hire, X-Factor and the whole cast of Annihilation! How about Guardians of the Galaxy and Sebastian Shaw's

Club? As long as these lines are successful we'll continue to dive deeper into the character portfolio. Believe me... we're with you!</B itxtvisited="1">




FAN QUESTION: With the recent appearances of Spider-Man and his amazing friends in some of the spin-off comics, are there any plans to release a 6" Firestar in the Marvel Legends line?




HASBRO: Anjelica Jones definitely needs her own Marvel Legend! There are no current plans for Firestar, but she's got a strong advocate right here!




FAN QUESTION: Recent Marvel Legends releases have seen in an increase in price (Fing Fang Foom/Red Hulk wave). Will the $15 SRP remain the going rate or can fans expect to see some economic toy relief in the near future?




HASBRO: Pricing is ultimately a retailer decision, but the price on the Fin

Fang Foom Wave was most certainly driven by the size of the BAF - that thing was huge! In general, you can expect to see the prices of upcoming waves vary slightly from one retailer to another.


Cool Toy Review: Since he picked up the mantle of Captain America, Bucky has become one of the most high profile characters in Marvel for 2008. I'm certainly glad that we got classic Bucky last year, but when can we expect to see Bucky as Cap in either the Marvel Legends or 3 3/4" scale line? (For that matter, can we look forward to a Winter Soldier figure?)


Hasbro: You have no idea what a big Cap (& Winter) fan you're talking to. The Brubaker / Epting run on Cap Am has been amazing and I can't wait to see what's going to happen next. All I can say is…you've got a friend in me.


Cool Toy Review: Will the 3 3/4 line include movie variants or is it strictly comics?


Hasbro: Marvel Universe is all Comic inspired. With almost 70 years of material and 5,000 characters we need to focus!


Cool Toy Review: Thank you Hasbro for re-releasing the Marvel Legends Kang figure! Any chance you will follow it up with his casemate, Dragon Man?? please?


Hasbro: No plans in the immediate future for a Dragon Man re-release. However, we do realize that this ask is echoed by lots of collectors. It's on the list of future possibilities.


Cool Toy Review: Does the "35 single carded figures in 2009" for the Marvel Universe line include the variants, meaning we've seen all but one of the figures at Comic-con, or are the variants not counted as figures, meaning there's still around 10 figures yet to reveal for next year?


Hasbro: Nick Fury says there are still at least 10 figures for 2009 that fans and collectors haven't seen yet. At least…...


Cool Toy Review: With the focus on the Marvel Universe line in 2009, are there any plans for BAF-style characters, and if so, would they be in the typical Marvel Legends size, or something even bigger, like the ICONS scale? I think it would be great to see these lines continue on with the larger characters and bringing them under the Marvel Universe banner.


Hasbro: Very cool idea. There are a lot of larger scale characters that have NEVER been done. We want to get to those too.

What I have learned from the several Q&A's I've read now:


Hasbro is VERY excited about the 3 3/4" wave.


That is all.


I`m kinda excited, I`ll have to see this little guys in person. I`m clogged with Star Wars merchandise, I hope Marvel gets as clogged as Star Wars, cause I wouldn´t have to worry if the figures will arrive or not. Plus, I can see ninja hand, aim soldiers, hydra soldiers packs, playsets, a lot of stuff.


Maybe this line won´t be as bad as everyone claims as long as ML doesn`t dissappear.

unless they do a lot of changes before they hit shelves these figures are hideous. Even if they do make it where when you hold human torch up to the light you can't clearly see the dust that settled under his upper body. You know, that canyon between his stomach and lower body? no, not that one, the other one. thats it.
