Hasbro's Marvel Q&A for March 2010
March 30, 2010


The MARVEL Team at Hasbro has once again come through for AFI readers answering your latest Hasbro/Marvel questions.  These questions were submitted by AFI readers via our forums.   


Q1) The new sculpts for the Marvel Legends 2 packs look fantastic! Will these be Toys R’ US/Diamond exclusive like the previous waves of 2 packs? Will Deadpool have an interchangeable unmasked head?

A1) Thanks! We are proud of these figures as well. They are currently planned to launch at TRU this fall.

Q2) Can Hasbro give us an update on the 6-inch Crimson Dynamo & Titanium Man figures that were seen at SDCC a while back? Will they be released?

A2) Unfortunately there is no news on either of these figures that we can report at this time.

Q3) Back in the 12/17/09 in one of the Hasbro Marvel Q&A , when asked about the possibility of an online release program for Marvel Legends figures, Hasbro said this: "We are always looking at ways and options to get the  Legends figures into the hands of fans. Plans are being made and we will announce them soon." Now that nearly 4 months have passed, could Hasbro update the marvel legends community on the status of these plans and announcement?

A3) Giving our fans the best product possible takes time. Plans are still underway and will be announced at a later date.

If you have a question you would like to ask the Hasbro Marvel team, you can submit them via this NEW thread for 2010!   New questions are due by:  Wednesday April 7th.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
