Marvelous News' Q&A With Hasbro's Marvel Brand Team

Jay Cochran - September 23, 2008
Hasbro’s Q&A with the Marvel brand team members returns this month with a new batch of questions and answers. If you would like to submit a question for Hasbro to answer about their Marvel Line, head over to our FORUMS and post it for possible use in a future Q&A session.

Marvelous News: Ok let’s start with the big one on that seems to be on everyone's mind. Will 6" Marvel Legends continue into 2009? If so can give us any hints as to what we might see for 6" past what was shown at Comic-Con?

Hasbro: The short answer is yes, they will be continuing. We're looking at a few options for the continuation of 6" Legends in 2009, but we can't give away the details or information on character selection yet.

MN: With all the new Marvel animated series coming out soon like Iron Man, X-Men and Black Panther, will there be any new toy lines based on these series like there is with the Spectacular Spider-Man animated series?

Hasbro: While we can't answer your question too specifically, we can say this: With so much awesome animation in the pipeline, it sounds like a pretty good idea!

MN: You teased an “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” movie line at Comic-Con this summer. Are there any more details you can give about that line yet? Will it be 6", 3 3/4" or both?

Hasbro: Unfortunately, we can't reveal any more specific details on the 2009 Wolverine line just yet.

MN: Marvel Studios seems to be focusing on this concept of crossovers with their Avengers, Captain America, Thor, Hulk and Iron Man movies. Will we see these crossovers carry over into your toy lines based on those movies?

Hasbro: It's exciting to see these characters crossing over on film much like they do in comic pages. Every character in the films is on the table from a toy perspective, so if crossovers exist on screen it's a definite possibility.

MN: How is the 3 3/4" Marvel line coming along? Has there been any kind of updates, changes or additions made since Comic-Con that you can talk about?

Hasbro: The line is coming along great - we're finalizing the 4th wave of single carded figures right now and we're hard at work on the 5th wave for 2009. We're continuing to partner closely with Marvel Publishing to make sure that there is a tight relationship between comic and toy. We're also in the middle of nailing down the full year 2010 lineup, which is always exciting. The fan reaction has been tremendous for this new line and we're looking at all sorts of exciting new possibilities and ideas!
