Hasbro's Marvel Q&A November 2008

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

1. What's next for Marvel Legends? After the Nemesis wave and a few two packs there isn't anything announced. Are you shelving the line for a bit and focusing on the Marvel Universe line, or cancelling Legends entirely and running with Marvel Universe from here on out?

Answer: We are focusing heavily on the 2009 launch of Marvel Universe but Marvel Legends still has a lot of life left in it. There are a ton of classic characters that still need their day in the 6" scale sun!

2. Will Hasbro attend NYCC 09 and will they offer any exclusives, like maybe pre-release Marvel Universe figures?

Answer: We are hoping to have a team at NYCC with a presence similar to years past - we'll be sure to update fans as this develops. However if we do go, we won't be offering exclusives at the show.

3. Any chance of seeing The Hood, Thunderbolts Norman Osborn, Modern Luke Cage or any other prominent character(s) in New/Mighty Avengers/Secret Invasion?

Answer: Modern Luke Cage simply has to get done! As for Norman, his alter ego is making an appearance in wave 2, but we're not quite ready to release him in business attire just yet. Finally, the Hood... sure he's tough but we still say that Wilson Fisk could take him so the Kingpin comes first!

4. What is the status of the Wizard poll figures? as some seem perfectly tailored for a two-pack (Northstar and Aurora).

Answer: These figures are currently stuck in the transporter. Not to fear though, their bio signatures remain strong and they will most likely be fully recovered at some future date.

5. Is there anything that you wish to comment on at this time?

Answer: No current plans for this.

Bonus Answer! You didn't ask, but we thought we'd drop you a hint about the upcoming Punisher figure in Wave 1 of Universe. If you see one on shelf, you might want to consider adding it to your collection... that's all we'll say.

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