The MARVEL Team at Hasbro has once again come through for AFI readers answering your latest and greatest Pre-Comic Con Hasbro/Marvel questions. These questions were submitted by AFI readers via our forums.
Q1. Will we EVER see the release of Marvel Legends figures that were previewed as prototypes such as Classic Storm, Valkyrie, Silver Samuri, Magneto, Aurora, Northstar, Red King, Gambit or Lilandra. I’m sure these could be made into two packs and become exclusives through some chain or diamond. It just seems such a waste (and my Cockrum era ML shelf is incomplete without Storm!!!) I refuse to give up hope that Marvel Legends is dead (even though I have been unable to find Tigra, Nova, Black Bolt and Beast!!)
A1. Definitely possible. Some of the figures you’ve listed are favorites amongst our own team so trust us when we say that we’d love to release
them. Blackbolt and Nova are still coming. Much like the most recent wave of Icons, they’re taking longer than planned to get to retail shelves…but they will get there!
Q2. Are there any plans for bases for the Marvel Universe line? Any idea of when we can expect them?
A2. Perhaps. We like the idea. Stop by the booth in San Diego and find out!
Q3. Where the heck is the Nemesis wave? Will the Walmart exclusive Nemesis (Nova, Daredevil, Black Bolt, Tigra, Punisher, Astonishing Beast) wave ever see a wider release?
A3. We still expect these to be offered at Wal-Mart but the timing has not yet been redefined. They are still coming!
Q4. How many Iron Man armors are planned this year in the MU?
A4. There are 5 different Iron Man armors in the line this year, all of which have been shown.
Q5.? Will there another 6" Marvel Legends build-a-figure wave that is not a store exclusive?
A5. We have no immediate plans for 6" BAF’s.
If you have a question you would like to ask the Hasbro Marvel team, you can submit them via this thread. New questions are due by: Sunday June 7th.
