Hasbro has shared official pics for their reveals at the ‘Twas the Night Before… Party kicking off New York Comic Con. They’ve included shots from Marvel Legends (both 6-inch and 3.75-inch – we’ll continue to refer to the smaller scale as Marvel Universe), Star Wars: the Black Series, and various Transformers waves.
They have more in store for Star Wars (their biggest reveals were not part of the officially released pics), and highlighted that in 2016, Transformers branding will transition from Combiner Wars to a new theme: Titans Returns, Part 2 of the just-announced Prime Wars Trilogy.
As has been their tradition for the last few year, Hasbro kicked off NYCC 2015 with their ‘Twas the Night Before… Party, revealing new items from their action figure brands. We took a look at their Marvel and Star Wars lines, with a focus on their 6-inch figures in Marvel Legends and the Black Series from Star Wars. And we got to chat with our long-time friend, Jesse Falcon, from the Marvel licensing team.
Bill is back with his latest action figure comic – Power Man and Iron Fist: Revenge of the Wrecking Crew. This is a follow-up to one of his favorite comic stories, in which Iron Fist battles the Wrecking Crew, with a little help from Captain America (in Iron Fist #11and 12, a Chris Claremont and John Byrne classic from way back in 1977).
The Wrecker also had a beef with Power Man, from when Luke Cage took him on during Cage’s debut in the Fantastic Four, replacing a de-powered Ben Grimm (you can check this out in Fantastic Four #168 on Marvel Unlimited, another classic from way back in ’76.)
Still on the market for the Marvel Legends Hulkbuster wave? Whether you’re looking for the entire wave or are just looking for one last remaining piece to complete the Build-a-Figure, you’re in luck. Kmart has the entire Marvel Legends Hulkbuster wave on sale for $16.99 each, marked down from $19.99. That beats Amazon’s price, which is normally $21.99, with some figures, like Valkyrie and Thundra marked up to $30 and higher by third party resellers.
Bill is back with his latest action figure comic, a jumbo-sized Spider-Man tale featuring Kraven the Hunter and more classic Spidey rogues. Check out The Amazing Spider-Man – Hunters and Prey, and be sure to check out the rest of Bill’s work here at AFP and at Bill’s Comics.
