Q&A Session With Hasbro's Marvel Brand Team May Round-Up

Q&A Session With Hasbro's Marvel Brand Team May Round-Up

Jay Cochran - May 17, 2010
In order to make it easier for you to check out all the different Hasbro Q&A's that are posted around the Internet, we have gathered up all the questions with links to the actual sites where you can easily go to and see the answers. Here is the round-up for May 2010's batch of questions. Click here to check out the Marvelous News ones.


1) Any chance we'll see past movie characters in the MU line, like Daredevil, movie costumed X-men, or Spider-Man movie characters?

2) What is the schedule for the 6-inch Marvel Legends releases?

3) Any plans for a "Secret Wars II" based series of 2-packs?


Cool Toy Review: I was wondering if you could explain the Marvel Universe character selection process...is a character's look more important than his overall importance to the Marvel Universe? A couple of examples would be the recent Warpath and Sunfire figures, which are super cool by the way. Both characters a pretty cool-looking, but minor background characters compared to say Bishop, Rogue, or Cable, who are all main characters. On a similar note...do you sit down and say this wave will be Avengers-focused, or X-Men-focused, and so on. Thanks for the cool figures and keep up the good work.

Cool Toy Review: With the Secret Wars Comic packs and the upcoming Galactus, we've gotten a seems there is a chance to see ALL of the participants in this inaugural crossover event made in the 4" scale line. However, there are a lot of characters still missing! Can you confirm if characters like She-Hulk (Avengers AND FF costumes!), Captain Marvel (Monica Rambeau), Professor X, Rogue, Lockheed, Kang, The Lizard, Molecule Man, Doctor Octopus, Volcana, Titania, the 2nd version of Doctor Doom, and Professor X (from the final issues) and maybe even Zsaji are even on the radar? Single-carded or multipacks, whatever...it would just be cool to get them all!

Cool Toy Review: Now that Iron Man 2 has taken over nearly all retailers, is there any room for the rest of the Marvel Universe? While it's understandable to take advantage of the movie release, it seems like EVERYTHING is all about Iron Man right now, and we NEED more Marvel!


Kastor: In the GI Joe lines each figure comes with a file card, but in the Marvel Universe line only the single pack figures get the files. Will Galactus and other non singles get secret files this year?

Kastor: The package art for Iron Patriot shows an unmasked Norman holding his helmet, Is that a clue of an accessory included with the figure or a potential variant?

Kastor: Will the Iron Man 2 phase out towards the end of the year like the Wolverine line to make room for upcoming Captain America and Thor lines?


Q1) WHEN WHEN WHEN will we see any of the figures from the original fan poll?? That Storm and Silver Samurai were some of the best sculpts I’ve seen and yet have been repeatedly ignored since Sunfire won (Storm was second…that has got to count for something!). Can you PLEASE try to find a way to get the out to the public???

Q2) Is there any reason in particular that it has been so difficult for MU fans to find the last couple of waves (ie Vision/Warpath, Thor/Black Widow) at retail? Hasbro, as opposed to some of its competitors, is usually known for getting product out there and the Secret Wars packs have all been easy to find. If there is some sort of hold up, can we still excpect to see the late 2009 early 2010 waves of MU shipping to retailers or are they pretty much over and done with?

Q3) How much longer before boxes of Marvel Universe stands (with label sheets ala Star Wars) are available at Hasbro Toy Shop?
