Hasbro Q&A Round 1

Hasbro Q&A Round 1

Ryno - June 19, 2007
Marvelous News is thrilled to bring you round 1 of the new monthly question and answer sessions between you (the fans) and the Hasbro design team members working on Marvel toys. Each month we will be submitting 5 questions asked by you the readers to the Hasbro design team for Marvel, which they then send back with answers to those questions for you to read. Here is the first batch of questions and answers for this month:

Marvelous News: (Regards to Marvel Legends) What are the chances that, moving forward, Hasbro will refrain from using the GI Joe swivel-elbow and the Star Wars ball-jointed elbow/knee articulation schemes for Legends, and return to the double-hinge construction for elbows and knees as introduced by ToyBiz along with the paint apps we are used to?

Hasbro: Both paint and articulation are handled case by case taking into consideration the aesthetic of each character. Maximum articulation sometimes detracts from the overall appearance and quality of the figure. We know that many collectors and fans agree that the overall appearance of a figure ranks higher than the articulation point count. We look at this balance carefully each and every time.

MN: (Regards to Marvel Legends) Will you include flying stands/bases for future figures?

Hasbro: There are no plans to include these on a regular basis, although you will probably see a select few.

MN: (Regards to Marvel Legends) Any two packs or boxsets planned in the future??

Hasbro: Not for 2007, but we're taking a hard look at some great possibilities for box sets and 2-packs in 2008.

MN: (Regards to Marvel Legends) Will we ever see older Toy Biz figures re-released through Hasbro?

Hasbro: While we're not ready to discuss plans beyond our 2007 line at this time, -- There is a strong possibility that several old favorites could be revived. Watch for future announcements.

MN: What happened to the Marvel Heroes line shown at SDCC in 2006, are they still coming and if so when?

Hasbro: This line is not scheduled for release in the near future, but we never say never.
