Could We See Todd McFarlane Art Inspired Marvel Figures From McFarlane Toys???


Recommended Posts

McFarlane just announced Multi-Brand Licensing Agreement with Hasbro. This DOESN'T have a direct impact on Marvel Legends since Hasbro doesn't actually own the Marvel license,  and therefore this wouldn't give McFarlane access to Marvel. However Hasbro has been pretty clear that they are moving away from the manufacturing side of the business to focus more on licensing out the brands they do own to other companies (IE Power Rangers, Transformers, GIJoe, D&D). The recent news about layoffs really shouldnt come as a surprise to anyone because when you quit manufacturing stuff you no longer need to employ a workforce of manufacturers and designers.

So where this might eventually impact ML, all this begs the question of whether or not Hasbro will actively compete for the Marvel and Star Wars licenses when the current licensing agreements with Disney come to an end????

Well....I've enjoyed Marvel Legends for the past 20+ years.  It's been one of...........no, scratch that.........it's been THE DEFINITIVE superhero action figure line of all time. 
No one has or ever will top it.
But that said, my interest in ML has abated.......mostly, but not yet completely.   I've disagreed with far more than I've been impressed by, and my buying has reflected that.  I cherry-pick the heck out of this line now, and the price-point...........filters things even more.  I still look on, out of curiosity and still intend to get ( or at least consider) certain characters, as..........IF........they appear, but yeah.......I think I'm nearing my swan-song with ML.
