Hasbro's Marvel Q&A September 2008 (Round 1)

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

1. Can we expect to see more 6" Marvel Legends in 2009?

Answer: Yes.

2. Why so few re-releases of Toybiz hard to find figures? At SDCC 2 years ago at the Hasbro panel Hasbro's answer was "Yes," to the question, "Will hard to find Toybiz figures like the pointy masked Iron Man and Dark Phoenix be re-released?" As of yet, no hard to find Toybiz figure has been re-released.

Answer: I think most collectors would consider Kang and the Super Skrull to be on that list of "hard to finds"... both of which are scheduled to hit shelves this Fall.

3. Will the Store exclusive waves of Marvel Legends (Red Hulk/Nemesis) be available on HTS?

Answer: They will not be available on HTS.

4. Please clear up some confusion to the SHIELD/Hand 2-packs. Are we getting Nick Fury/SHIELD Agent 2pk and 2 Hand Ninjas in their own 2pk? Or is it Nick with alternate head and Hand Ninja in one 2pk? And is Dugan/Hand a variant 2pk (like Skrull Elektra) or a totally separate 2pk?

Answer: It will be Nick Fury with an alternate head and a Hand Ninja in one 2pk. As for Dugan, it is a separate two pack (with different graphics on pack)... but the same concept as the Nick 2-pack. It will feature an interchangeable head for Dum Dum and a Hand Ninja in one 2 pack.

5. Why in the first 3 3/4" line-up is there only one female (and her variant)? How quickly will the better-looking half of the Marvel Universe be made in this scale, and what kind of character depth can we expect - and how soon?

Answer: There are 35 single carded figures planned for 2009... and there are definitely more female characters on the way.

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