I’ve been taking it easy while gearing up for Toy Fair in a couple of weeks, but Bill’s been productive. His latest action figure comic is a Spider-Man team-up with Daredevil as they battle with Hobgoblin, Kingpin, and the Constrictor over “The Disc.”
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!
Bill is back with his latest action figure comic, a Daredevil story featuring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. (It’s the sequel to Daredevil Meet the TMNT!) With an assist from Iron Fist, these martial artists take on Silvermane, Hammerhead, and the Rhino. Also, don’t miss a cameo from a certain Dynamic Duo!
In the past, I’d separate the Hasbro Marvel reports into Marvel Legends and everything else. At this Toy Fair, Hasbro has completed the consolidation of all the collector-oriented Marvel lines into the Marvel Legends brand. And while this will certainly cause confusion for non-collectors who shop for their collector loved ones, it’s really a testament to the strength of Legends.
Think back to 2007, when Hasbro first started producing Legends. Back then, it was clear that the star of 6-inch Legends had faded; Hasbro was focusing on their bread and butter 3.75-inch scale. Today, however, it’s 6-inch that is propelling the brand forward. Over 8MM units have been shipped since Hasbro first took over the license. Over 200 figures (many more if you count variants) have been produced.
