Toy Fair has not officially started, but Hasbro has shared some product reveals in a pre-show tease from their Marvel and Star Wars product lines. As you might expect, both brands remain aligned with the major movie releases for the year.
On the Marvel front, Hasbro is continuing the Marvel Legends premium role play line with an electronic Infinity Gauntlet from Avengers: Infinity War. They’re also continuing the revamped Mighty Muggs line with new figures for Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp. Hasbro previously teased upcoming Marvel Legends waves for Deadpool 2 and Venom.
Hasbro’s Star Wars reveals lean heavily into Solo: A Star Wars Story with new Black Series and Force Link figures, among others. But they also have a sprinkling of figures from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Read on for lots of pics and product descriptions. And stay tuned for more reveals – the Hasbro media event for Toy Fair is on Saturday afternoon.
At London’s MCM Comic Con, they revealed the final three figures and the build-a-figure. Naturally, movie Black Panther is the head-liner for the wave. He’s joined by Erik Killmonger and Nakia for the final three individually-carded figures. The build-a-figure is Okoye, Nakia’s compatriot in the Dora Milaje, Black Panther’s elite bodyguards.
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.
Finally, here’s our Marvel Legends Report for SDCC 2017 – all the reveals, videos, booth pics, official PR pics, and teases – all in one spot. And while Hasbro showed off a massive amount of new figures and more for the remainder of this year and the start of next, there’s still a lot more to go. Of the new waves, they revealed only one completely.
