2004 Marvel Legends Update

2004 Marvel Legends Update

Jay Cochran - April 08, 2004

NEW YORK - In an effort to resolve any confusion pertaining to the 2004 Marvel Legends Line, Toy Biz, a division of Marvel Enterprises Inc., has issued the following statement:

Our highly anticipated 2004 Marvel Legends Line has been the subject of much discussion throughout the collector community, which speaks volumes to the immense popularity of this amazing collection. The new 2004 line will consist of three diverse assortments as opposed to four as initially proposed during this year's Toy Fair. The decision to scale back on assortments was clear once we realized the great array of figures now being offered through our production of variants.

Toy Biz will continue to offer chase figures for this line starting with The Red Skull in the first assortment. Following this first assortment, Toy Biz will distribute a finite amount of previously released chase figures into subsequent assortments throughout the year. In order to further enhance the collectibility of this line, Toy Biz will also manufacture a selection of beautifully crafted art deco variants for certain figures. These variants will be produced with scarcity in mind, making fewer available than their mass-produced counterparts. We realize the demand for our figures continues to be at an all-time high and feel this strategy will satisfy mass consumers while at the same time offering higher value figures for our collectors.

Details for the 2004 line can be found below:
