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.
Without further ado, here’s the index for the entries for CustomCon 40.

Thanks to all who participated!
Coming this winter to CustomCon 40 is a set of three new Marvel Legends figures every collector is sure to want. The “Essential Evil” set features three of Marvel’s most notable villains who have never before been offered in the Marvel Legends line: Graviton, Count Nefaria, and Diablo!
These three villains are a must have for any Marvel Legends collection.
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 #11 and 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.)
