I don't even recall any announcements to submit new questions...it seems like this new round of answers is out of the blue. Considering we don't get nearly as many Q&A chances as the Star Wars fans, it would be great if the Q&A submission deadline could be played up a bit.
I think a 3.75" line would be pretty cool. In fact, I'm starting to wonder if it wouldn't be a bad idea to end the 6" line and move to 3.75" permanently.
i'm not really a gi joe fan so i won't prefer having a 3/3 4''..i like marvel to still be 6'' cause almost all marvel figures are 6''..... :cyclops:
A 6" line and a 3 3/4" line can co-exist quite happily. It's silly to say they should never make Marvel figures of a different size just because they've made them in one particular size.
A 3.75" line would give us huge opportunities for a lot of the more obscure characters, as well as a real shot at getting things like a Quinjet, Blackbird, etc.... If you didn't like 'em, you don't have to buy 'em. But man oh man I'd be all over a Joe-sized Marvel line, and likely keep buying the 6" figures as well.
More Q&A from other sites:
1. With the long absence of the Marvel Legends line from stores, can we expect anything new from the next wave in regards to articulation, paint applications, detail, etc?
HASBRO: Yes, lots of new news on this front. Check out the new 2 packs that feature lots of interchangeable heads, hands and accessories for starters. You'll also see lots of great detail and more double knees and double elbows featured in the upcoming BAF waves.
2. International fans have to resort to ebay prices to get Hasbro exclusives as well as ML retail exclusives. Will Hasbro set up a way for fans across the water to get their hands on the toys they love by the singles or by the case?
HASBRO: The Marvel Legends brand is available to all of our global retail partners across the world...but they each make their own decisions about what to carry in their stores based on regional popularity and preferences. We would encourage our international friends to stress to their favorite retailers that they should carry more Marvel product! Above and beyond that, HasbroToyShop.com coverage was recently extended throughout Canada. We are hopeful that this service will be available to many other countries soon.
3. On that same note, in the past with retail exclusives, we've had to get a variant figure to complete the build a figure. Not only is this difficult with scalpers, but from region to region, we don't get access to the same amounts of product (ie; Fantastic Four Legends never hit central NJ.) Will Hasbro provide a way for fans to buy full sets and singles of these waves, including the variants?
HASBRO: All variant figures in the BAF waves are packed with a duplicate BAF piece so that you don't have to track down the variant and you don't have to buy both. For example, in the upcoming Red Hulk wave, both the yellow and the black Wolverines will come with the same BAF piece. As far as the issue of regional differences goes, there are definitely some "hot beds" for Legends and they do move through more product. This isn't really a question of distribution as much as it is supply and demand. It's a decision that's made at the retail level depending on how fast a given product sells in their area.
4. Can you give us a sneak peek at what we will see at San Diego Comic Con?
HASBRO: Tons of stuffpretty much everything from the 2008 line for all Marvel brands and possibly a couple of sneak peeks at early 2009. We can't get too specific here but we can share this one nugget of info - you'll see a brand new Legends BAF wave revealed at SDCC.
5. Last year, Hasbro released three series of Marvel Legends in the last few months of the year, causing fans to frantically hunt for their figures and put a serious hurt on their wallets all at once. In the future, can we count on Hasbro to space out these waves to make it more affordable for fans and at the same time, assure Hasbro that we can buy each entire series?
HASBRO: Wow, we usually hear that there isn't enough Legends product out there. There will again be a lot of new Legends out there in the back half of 2008 which we announced at Toy Fair in February and NYCC in April. We hope that collectors used the Legends light Spring season as an opportunity to save up a few extra bucks for their faves this fall! If it helps reduce the sting to the wallet, there are many retail websites where you can pre-order these items right now and therefore spread out the cost.
They better release some 3 3/4" figs. :wolverine2:
