May 22, 2014

USA Today just blew the lid off of Hasbro’s Marvel San Diego Comic Con 2014 exclusive sets.   There will be 6″ Marvel Legends set and a 3.75″ Marvel Universe set -

 

 

Hasbro-ML-GalactusEngine1

Priced at $99.99, a set of Marvel Legends Infinite Series 6-inch figures is based on the Marvel story line “The Thanos Imperative” — included are the Inhumans’ Black Bolt and Medusa, Gladiator, Blastaar and Star-Lord from the Guardians of the Galaxy. They all arrive in a special-edition box designed to look like the Galactus Engine from the comics

Hasbro-MU-Infinity-Gauntlet1Another pack of 3¾-inch figures ($74.99) comes from the classic miniseries The Infinity Gauntlet and features Nebula, Starfox, Mistress Death and the cosmic villain Thanos, who comes with his own Infinity Gauntlet. But he’s not the only guy who gets one — Marvel’s looking out for fans, too, by including a wearable foam Infinity Gauntlet glove in case you want to rule outer space yourself.

Head over to USA TODAY for more details and even more pictures!

Daniel Pickett
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, 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.

    okay…..where is blastaar ?

  • demoncat_4 says:

    can’t believe hasbro made a star fox figure. and he is packed with what has to be nothing but the mu thanos figure repackaged . though can see them having to go the hulk hands route for fans to finaly be able to have their own infinity gauntlet. and not hurt themselves . at least till some one makes a statue prop one. and those ml will pass. since other then star lord and medusa most have already had a ml figure. blastar think was a baf

  • […] who wouldn’t want 3in. and 6in. figures… and a foam Infinity Gauntlet glove? Certainly no one we’d care to associate ourselves […]
