Hasbro held their annual Toy Fair Nerd Herd (officially the “Fan Media Day”) and it was packed – both with awesome new Marvel Legends reveals, and with people trying to get pictures of said Legends. It’s a big Marvel movie year for Marvel Studios and 21st Century Fox, and I was expecting the brand to line up with the movies those two studios are putting out.
Marvel Studios – Captain Marvel (figures already on shelves), Avengers: Endgame, and Spider-Man: Far From Home
Fox – Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants
While Hasbro did come out in full force in alignment with the movies, they still managed to mix in some surprises. Read on!
Note: This year I’ll be updating this single post throughout San Diego Comic-Con with pics and video from the show floor, Hasbro’s media brand preview breakfast, interviews, and Hasbro’s Marvel panel. So, bookmark, and check back in again – I’ll have updates at least once a day.
When it comes to Hasbro and Marvel, we tend to think of Marvel Legends first. But they’ve got more – lots more, including basic 6-inch and 12-inch figures, electronic figures, and role play items.
So when Hasbro shared the details for (almost) all of their products for Avengers: Infinity War, we were suitably overwhelmed. We’ve included the official product images and descriptions in one massive round-up. Don’t worry – we put the Marvel Legends up top.
With the media embargo for Avengers: Infinity War lifted today, there’s been some accompanying product reveals – I’ve posted about Marvel Legends and LEGO sets for Infinity War already. But the one I have dreaded most is the Funko reveal – they’ve got SO MUCH STUFF!
While they started with Pop! as their solitary designer vinyl line, they’ve added Dorbz, Mystery Minis, and keychains to the mix. And then there’s the plush and clothing. You want to know who’s got the most star power in Infinity War? It’s Iron Man, based on the eleven different iterations (including variants) of him across the various Funko lines. In contrast, Thanos is the runner-up with eight, while Spidey’s got seven.
The embargo has finally lifted for Avengers: Infinity War, and the official launch date for licensed products is this Saturday, March 3rd. With that, LEGO has shared the details for the seven LEGO Marvel Super Heros sets for the movie that will all be available this weekend!
Product details may reveal some light spoilers. So while I quickly skimmed, I did notice that most of the sets come with specific Infinity Stone elements that you will want to collect, if you want to complete the Infinity Gauntlet in Thanos’ set.
