As we enter the home stretch toward SDCC 08 the Marvel Team from Hasbro updates us on the answers to our burning questions that AFI readers have posted in our forums:
Q1. What are the chances of a 3 3/4 Iron Man in the Hulk movie line? Are there more 3 3/4 figures planned for the Hulk movie line then we’ve seen so far?
A1) There are a couple of additional 3.75" Hulk movie figures that have yet to be announced.
Q2. Several of the Superhero Squad 2 packs released last year were extremely difficult to locate…especially Rogue/Gambit, Spidey/Kraven and Spidey/Vulture. Are there any plans to re-release any/all of these guys in an upcoming wave/set?
A2) We do have some plans to source some (but not all) of these again in 2009.
Q3. Will Marvel Legends singles return to all retailers or are they just going to be exclusive waves from now on until the line is phased out?
A3) For 2008, mass retailers will be carrying the Hulk Legends Fin Fang Foom Wave and the Legends 2 packs.
Q4. I’m new to the Marvel collecting (I’m a DC guy at heart, sorry Hasbro, besides, you get my cash from IJ and Star wars, so don’t feel to bad…) Seeing Fin Fang Foom is what converted me, I cannot wait to get him! (More money for you!) That leads me to my question; Toybiz Build a Figures are expensive on ebay (Apocalypse, Galatctus and the sentinel) what are the odds that they will be re released from the 12" Icons format?
And when might we see more X-Men like 90′s Jim Lee/Animated Jubilee and Jean Gray and hover chair Charles Xavier? Can you make Morph from the show, the new Forge/wolverine body is a great start!
A4) Hey, we all have our favorites, no need to apologize. Welcome to the Marvel Universe! We realize that these guys are still sought after by collectors. There is definitely a chance…make sure to tell your local retailers that this is something you’d like to see!
Q5. What is the status of the Wizard poll characters that didn’t win? FA Storm, Northstar/Aurora (hello 2pk!), Silver Samurai, etc? also, what is the status of the (Dark)
A5) They are still in the archive awaiting a good home! AOA Sunfire will be available in a couple of months (he’s already available for pre-order) and at that point we’re hoping to kick off another installment of the
Fan’s Choice. The Icons are already scheduled for a couple of retailers in Spring of 09…specific details and timelines will be disclosed at SDCC. As for the other characters, those names have definitely arisen in our character selection discussions…so there’s a strong chance you’ll see a couple of them.
