Marvel Q&A!


Greetings once again, and welcome to MasterCollector for our final round for 2010 of questions from us and answers from Hasbro regarding their various Marvel Comics-related action figure product lines!

Of course as you know, Hasbro is the main toy licensee for the action figure world of the Marvel Comics Universe, which includes such action figure lines as Marvel Universe, Iron Man 2, Spider-Man, and certainly in 2011, Captain America and Thor, based on their live-action movies! They have generously offered to reply to several questions throughout the year. What follows are those posed by MasterCollector for the last session of 2010:

MC Question #1: The new Marvel Legends two-packs are starting to appear at retail. Can you tell us what the early response to them has been from retailers and fans?

MARVELQA: The response has been extremely positive for these fan's choice packs. It's clear that fans and collectors are still hungry for more 6" Marvel Legends!

MC Question #2: With the Captain America and Thor live-action movies coming up quite soon, are there plans to increase the presence of Cap and Thor-related characters in the Marvel Universe line prior to or in conjunction with these movies and doubtless their own toy lines?

MARVELQA: You'll definitely see a fair share of these characters within the Marvel Universe line next year, but you'll also see a large sampling of characters from the X-men, the Hulks and the comic storylines.

So it sounds like while there will be no shortage of Star-Spangled Avengers and hammer-throwing Norsemen around in 2011, we can look forward to plenty of Marvel's Merry Mutants, and HULK WILL SMASH -- the toy aisles...

Thanks for reading, and best wishes for the holiday season!
