*BEAKING NEWS FROM TOYFACE!
A few days ago, the Toy Association
revealed the nominees for the Toy of the Year Awards 2022
. The Action Figure of the Year
category saw nominees like the Avengers Hasbro Marvel Mech Strike by Hasbro, the Jurassic World Ocean Protector Mosasaurus by Mattel, Star Wars Galactic Snackin' Grogu by Hasbro or the first wave of Master of the Universe: Revelation figures, the Masters of the Universe: Masterverse by Mattel.
One participant, which would have been the clear winner
of that category seemed to be missing
, though. We first thought that it was just an error, and contacted the Toy Association
to make sure they knew about it, but it turns out the announcement was real: The Marvel Legends The Hood figure by Hasbro is NOT one of the nominees this year
The entire toy community is now in shambles after hearing the news. Several members accused the Toy of the Year Awards of being rigged
, saying that it is a travesty
and that the Marvel Legends The Hood figure by Hasbro was robbed
of its well-deserved award.
Marvel Legends Hasbro team member Dan Yun
posted on Twitter that it was disappointing
and gave a shout out to Sonny
from The Sonny Channel
, who was leading a campaign
to nominate the Marvel Legends The Hood figure by Hasbro to the Awards (see below).
ToyFarce reached out to Sonny
for a statement: "I just feel like The Hood was snubbed
due to the fact that I do not work for Hasbro. I don't feel like he should be punished due to my failure to gain employment or my familial ties. I hope that one day, The Hood will be given the recognition he deserves, whether it be based on the fact that he is a solid figure, or that I pick up a temp custodial job at Hasbro. Is he just a screaming head? No, he also has a sad heart and two questionable gun accessories."
