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.

Marvel Studios – Captain Marvel (figures already on shelves), Avengers: Endgame, and Spider-Man: Far From Home
Fox – Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants

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.
