Marvel Tid-Bits From The 2005 Canadian Toy Fair
: Jay Cochran on 2005-01-29
reports in today from the 2005 Canadian Toy Fair going on this weekend. The Canadian Distributor Grand
had on display new things from Toy Biz, which Oroku reports the following on:
No pictures were allowed so there is nothing really to show unfortunately. The only thing you can see is the 3rd series of the Marvel Manga Motorized Twist'Ems
This series includes;
-Glider Flying Green Goblin
-Light Up Optic Blast Cyclops
-Wall Climbing Spider-Man
-Claw Attack Wolverine (unmasked)
The Mavel Legends series nine 16" Galactus
(which is completed by combining the bases of all of the ML9 figures) has a good deal of articulation and does not look like a statue or completed puzzle when assembled.
Marvel Legends series 10 was confirmed as including:
1st Appearances Spider-Man, Cyclops, Angel, Black Panther, Omega Red, Mr. Sinister, Mystique.
Cyclops will be in his classic dark blue with yellow gloves and boots outfit with a X-Factor variant with white gloves and boots. Angel will also have an X-Factor varaint, and each figure from this wave will come with a part to build a giant mutant hunting robot sentinal. Look for the Sentinal to have a classic look with blue and purple colors.
Series 11 will include:
Logan, Iron Man Hulk Buster, Vengeance, Task Master, Utron, Wonder-Man, Scarlet Witch
, although I am still not sure which Taskmaster will be produced since it was not shown. It appears that Logan and Wonder Man will have variants in this series. Also this series is themed as Legendary Riders
because each figure will come with a morotcycle type vehicles to ride.
The ML12 and ML13 lists floating around a few weeks ago have been confirmed to be fake (although this is not anything most of you already don't know).
Finally The Spider-Man/Absorbing Man and Abomination/Spider-Man sets will be released later in the year and be priced at around $15 U.S. These characters are re-releases of the shortpacked characters from Hulk Classics.
