Halloween is right around the corner, and Bill is back with another classic comic. Check out Spider-Man as he teams up with the Punisher, Doctor Strange, and Ghost Rider, in Bill’s fifth installment of Fright Night – Helloween!
As has been their tradition the past several years, Hasbro held its ‘Twas the Night Before… Party on the eve of New York Comic Con. All of its collector-oriented brands were represented, including marketing and design members from their Star Wars, Transformers, and Marvel brand teams.
We focused on the new Marvel Legends reveals. Those included the final reveals for the widely-rumored and now-confirmed Sandman Build-a-Figure Spider-Man wave, and four other Legends whose final homes have not yet been revealed, but may be slotted into upcoming X-Men and Guardians of the Galaxy waves.
We’re a week away from Force Friday, and Hasbro has more retailer exclusives incoming. As you might expect, most are tied-in with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but a certain astromech droid is looking to remote control his way to your heart.
With the Star Wars Smart R2-D2, Hasbro is looking to capture some of the magic that Sphero did with its app-enabled BB-8 (http://amzn.to/2cMWhmE). While you won’t be able to pick up R2-D2 at Walmart until next week, you can preview the companion app for Android and iOS now. Now I just need an appropriately-sized C-3PO head for Artoo to drag around.
Red Skull’s nefarious plan? Turn Captain America into an agent of HYDRA. And who better to test Cap’s new allegiances against than a former ally? Daredevil guest stars in Blind Fury!
If you were wondering where the 3.75-inch figures were in yesterday’s Star Wars reveals from Hasbro (http://afpics.link/2bGG8ir), they couldn’t be contained in a single announcement! But there’s more.
Hasbro also shared their role play items, which include a voice changer Death Trooper mask and a pretty cool update to their Stormtrooper voice changer helmet.
