This morning, the Hasbro Marvel team held a roundtable meeting for online media for New York Comic Con, and we were lucky enough to be there. I’ll be putting together the 360 degree video tonight and should have it posted tomorrow. [Update: video posted below.]
In the meantime, here’s a summary of the Hasbro reveals from both HASCon a couple of weeks ago and NYCC today. For completeness, I’ll include the prior reveals from San Diego Comic-Con. So far we’ve got a pretty deep look into 2018.
Dark Phoenix has returned, more powerful than ever, and the X-Men are going to pay! It’s all-out action as the classic X-Men must once again face total destruction from the cosmic force known as the Phoenix.
Will they be able to overcome their love of Jean Grey to do what they must to survive? Find out, fearless reader, in the tale called “Phoenix Rising!”
It’s Force Friday! At midnight tonight, stores have the green light to finally put Star Wars products out on the shelf. There’s a ton of it, and Hasbro has shared the official pics and descriptions. We’re going to focus it on the Star Wars Black Series 6-inch offerings.
We’ve seen some product line extensions in 6-inch. In addition to single-carded figures, we’re seeing more vehicles and a completely new line that includes 6-inch scaled statues plus environments, which you can plus up by adding your own Black Series figures to the scene.
Finally, if you’re sensitive to spoilers (even minor ones), you might want to skip this article. I try to stay away from entertainment news, but the product line-ups may reveal characters and story details that might tell you too much for your taste.
Even Batman needs help every once in a while! So when Gotham City is threatened with destruction by Ra’s Al Ghul and Kobra, the Dark Knight Detective must must enlist the aid of his most powerful ally – Superman! (And a couple of others.)
But even with a little help from his friends, will the Caped Crusader be able to overcome one of the greatest challenges of his crime fighting career? Well there’s no need to wonder. Just forge ahead and find out, fearless reader!
