Q&A
Q: WHAT ABOUT THE 3-3/4" line???
A: it's a setup....they showed off a great FuryFiles.com video clip, and then answered HELL YES We're doing it!!

MARVEL UNIVERSE
FuryFiles.com will be the central location for the line....it's going to be HUGE!!

Nick Fury is the central character, recruiting various heroes to help fight off the Skrull invasion.


Peace,

Chip

Wow...

Quote:
Articulation is a key to Marvel Legends so the 3 3/4 figures will be fully poseable. Figures will include acessories, such as Sufer's board, Goblin's Glider and Punisher's guns.

Iron Man, Spider-Man, Silver Surfer, Punisher, Blackk Panther, Bulls-Eye, Daredevil, Human Torch and variant Johnny Storm, Stealth Armor Iron Man, x-Force Wolverine, Hulk, Ronin, Iron Fist, black costume Spider-Man, troop building Hand ninjas, classic Iron Man, Ms.Mmarvel and classic variant, Thing and a mail away figure of Nick Fury based on Jesse Falcon, Hobgoblin, Moon Knight, Grey Hulk, Union Jack with guns, Thor and Colossus were shown.

The detailing looks great and so does the paint apps. The slides of the figures shown were the actual 3 3/4 versions, not two ups.


Peace,

Chip

Yeah, I'm looking at the pics at TNI/Marvelous News.

Great stuff.

I cannot believe that I'll have 3-3/4" DC and Marvel collections next year! That is so freakin' awesome.

Now, I'm definitely going to unload a bunch of my Legends, keeping just the faves!

Suddenly the Target Red Hulk Legends wave is less appealing with lil' Red Hulk on the way!

Great news. And the figures look fantastic.

They articulation, sculpt, and everything blows away the DCIH line.

WOW! The Marvel 3 3/4 stuff looks incredible. My new favorite line or something. Makes DCIH look like the turds they are.

Even though I knew I should have done this a while ago, I think I will dump the majority of my Showdown figures, get what I can for them and prepare for these babies!

This line looks great, I might not collect them all but I'll probably get a few. Mattel is definitely winning at the 6" scale but Hasbro is killing at the 3 3/4" scale. I guess they've had enough years to perfect it though.

I sincerely hope these figures are Marvel Legends Showdown and 25th Anniversary G.I. Joe scale at 4" and not the DCIH shorter size. These look surprisingly good, and if Hasbro puts more double joints on these figures and avoids the elbros and kneebros I see on some of those figures, this line could prove dangerously addictive.

Are these singles or 3 packs or what? I like what I see, but I'm not sure what I want to do. Classic Black Panther, Classic and retro IM, FA Ms. Marvel for cryin out loud. I see so much potential with this (QuinJet and Fantasticar esp). I've been cutting way back on ML lately so maybe it's time to do something new. Dunno. I wish the DCIH looked this good. Dang. Are these going to be considerably cheaper than ML?? I do need to find a less expensive alternative for Marvel and DC for the kids for sure.

Wow! Very nice! Mattel is going to have to step up their game on DCUIH, that's for sure... I'm not going to be collecting these but I've already got my sights set on both versions of Ms. Marvel for some Star Wars customs...

Price point is supposed to be on par with Star Wars.

So single packs, probably $6.00. Comic Packs, likely $10.

Hasbro said he is one of their favorite characters. So count on it eventually.
