2014 SDCC Exclusive 3.75" Marvel Infinite Series Thanos 3-Pack?!?

2014 SDCC Exclusive 3.75" Marvel Infinite Series Thanos 3-Pack?!?


Jay Cochran - May 17, 2014
A few weeks ago we showed you some images of what appeared to be upcoming 3.75" Marvel Infinite Series figures of Nebula and Starfox. We speculated these might be part of a Hasbro San Diego Comic Con exclusive set for this year. Now thanks to Mr. Curto we have a look at another possible figure for the set with a new Thanos. Shown below you can see this new Thanos which is similar to previously released Marvel Universe ones has a transparent type Infinity Gauntlet on.

Now this is only a theory I have and nothing has been confirmed by Hasbro, but I think Hasbro will be releasing a 3.75" Marvel Infinite series 3-pack similar to the Marvel Universe Masters of Evil 3-pack they did a couple years ago as this year's Comic-Con exclusive for their 3.75" Marvel line featuring Nebula, Starfox and Thanos, possibly in some kind of fancy Infinity Gauntly type packaging to coincide with the release of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie which should also be featuring the Mad Titan .

Hasbro should be officially announcing their SDCC exclusives soon so we will know one way or another for sure then.

The glove is kind of cool, but it's definitely not something I feel like i need to have, so this is a pretty easy pass. The price is just too much for 2 new figures, a statue, and a glove. $75 at the con is going to create some ridiculous after-market prices. I'm seeing pre-orders on ebay for $200 already. HTS is a slight possibility, but it's still be $75 and shipping, if I could get it at all. I'd have to get a day off work to spend F5ing, which means more money lost, and still no guarantee. I'm still feeling kind of burned from the MoE set selling out while I was clicking through the checkout trying to buy it.

The good news is our friends in China seem to be trickling out a steady stream of loose figures from this set. I grabbed a Starfox already. I haven't seen much for Nebula or Death, but if I don't get them it's not the end of the world.

Yeah, these figures probably wouldn't have had a chance in hell at retail unless that were a part of the already cancelled comic and team packs

It is July 24-27.

Out of curiosity, when is SDCC? I thought it was mid-July but don't really follow as much since I'm on the east coast.

When they had the shield helicarriers at SDCC I taught the the price was outrageous but then I saw the display they had in the Hasbro booth and I taught it look bad ass and almost felt like giving in and buying one. I then thought to myself where I am going to put it at and then it really wasn't at scale, so I decided not to buy it. I instead decided to buy me 2 sets of the masters of evil and save the money for something else. This years exclusive is worth it to me just for the death figure, but the starfox figure is cool because it is one more Avenger that I can add to the team. Nebula is ok and the Thanos I guess they could have made him the color of the warlock set. The Infinity glove is going to be a very hard to get item down the road and I am willing to bet that many who are bemoaning it will get it. I will definitely get it and will look forward to see on Saturday what figures will be coming down the pike.

honest do you think we would have gotten most of these in regular release?

Not really. Starfox maybe in a team pack and possibly Nebula in a comic pack, but since neither of those things exist anymore, SDCC exclusive seems fitting.

Nebula or Starfox? Maybe. They've released a few oddball choices in the basic line. Death had absolutely no shot at a retail release.

Well ... I don't mind getting Starfox, Nebula, Death and even another Thanos, but I could care less about the gauntlet. And the price is just terrible. I still think an original guardians of the galaxy set would have been easy and would have blown peoples minds.

That's kind of the way I see it, as well. The glove holds absolutely zero interest for me. My impression is that for adult collectors, it's really about the characters included. That's the approach they've taken with the Legends exclusives--the Thunderbolts box was magnificent, and this Thanos Imperative box looks pretty good, too. Both filled with characters that collectors want. The glove is a prop mostly of interest for kids, I think. The glove should come as a fist, with its middle finger raised, to indicate just what they think of the collectors of this scale.

The glove isn't there for kids. It's there because Hasbro thinks there are some collectors out there that would want the glove more than the figures. They don't think the figures would sell all that we'll due to the scale and characters included, so they believe they'll move more product if the glove is included.

If you've seen the mask packages that DC has been doing lately (trade paperback plus mask. I have a V for Vendetta set), that's what Hasbro is trying to mimic. Kids aren't buying Hasbro exclusives at San Diego Comic Con.

I get that; I just don't believe there are that many adult collectors who care about the glove. So it seems to me like a kind of schizoid package, where they offer something I think kids would respond to more, but then they offer figures only a few adult collectors would be interested in.
