As mentioned on our news page, Hasbro held their Marvel panel today. Daniel already covered most of it, but here's a few more items:

1) Don't be surprised to see Shang-Chi show up in Legends at some point in the not too distant future. That's a favorite character of one of Hasbro's designers.

2) Someone asked if any Star Wars characters will show up in Legends. 6" scale, articulated Star Wars characters are something that Hasbro's talked about doing.

3) HML 4 will be the first wave of 2008. Nova, Astonishing X-Men Beast, Black Bolt (Variant redeco), First Appearance Daredevil (Red variant), The "Tim Bradstreet" Punisher (Variant Crossbones) and Tigra. Nemesis will be the BAF. Six figure waves will be the norm from this point on.

4) The Black Queen will be a TRU exclusive.

5) No variants in the FF Ronan BAF assortment. That should hit shelves in October.

6) FF animated series toys: Only if the cartoon moves forward with new episodes.

7) Someone asked about Thunderbolts two-packs. Hasbro says it's on their radar.

8 ) First Appearance Storm? That will happen. The Hasbro team loves First Appearance.

9) Will their be an Iron Man movie line? Yes. It will be shown at Toy fair. Scale? They won't say. They don't want to discuss 2008.

10) The brand managers and the designers that were on the panel acknowledged making mistakes. They said that it was a learning curve. They will try and do better. They read the boards to see what we want.

11) BAS (Build-A-Set) and BAVs (Build-A-Vehicle) were mentioned. There's no plans for those right now, but Hasbro considers them an option.

12) Some of the ToyBiz stuff that was show last year was asked about. The X-Babies, Thor Frog, Forbush Man and the goons. Hasbro said they can't confirm or deny that any of it will see the light of day.

13) Will we see the Jim Lee version of Jean Grey in Legends. Hasbro says it's on their radar.

14) Hasbro says they're going to conduct a Marvel Legends fan poll in conjunction with ToyFare. The details should be in the September issue. The winner of the poll will get a figure in Legends.

15) I asked about more Inhumans after Black Bolt. Yes, there will be. Hasbro knows that collectors like complete teams because that's how we like to display them on our shelves (Hence the Jim Lee era Jean Grey getting a figure).

I think that's it. If I remember anything else, I'll post it.

Mike
(Should be some cool DCD and Mattel news tomorrow! Stay tuned for pics and reports!)
