Hasbro's Marvel Q&A

July 2008 - Each month, Hasbro will answer five questions about their Marvel and Spider-Man products. Here are the latest questions and answers:

1. Will we ever see any of the old, rare Toybiz Marvel Legends rereleased? Figures such as Deadpool, Dark Phoenix, and Juggernaut were shortpacked and the supply -NEVER- met the demand before the line went forward with other characters. These are popular characters that could still sell extremely well at retail, with minimal cost to Hasbro, since the tooling already exists.

Answer: You'll see a few of the "hard to find" Legends figures on shelves this fall... starting with the Skrull which was already revealed in New York this past April. You'll see at least one more re-release unveiled next month at Comic Con

2. Will we ever see the last waves of Marvel Icon figures on store shelves? (Daredevil, Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix, Nightcrawler, Colossus)

Answer: Yes. There are several retailers scheduled to carry these in Spring of 2009. Retailer Specifics and exact timeline will be revealed in just 4 weeks.

3. Are the 2 latest exclusive ML BAF series (Nemises and Red Hulk), going to be the last ML BAF series Hasbro will produce?

Answer: No - we just might show you a new one in San Diego!

4. Any more X3 figures planned? Still love to have that Angel and a Kitty Pryde (do Ellen
Page's award nominations help at all?)

Answer: At this point, it looks like the X3 movie figures are officially all done.

5. Is Marvel Legends 6 inch scale dead?

Answer: No, in fact, there are a couple of big Legends reveals just around the corner at SDCC!

Be sure to check out the previous Q&As as well.
