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!
It’s Christmas time once again, and what do you get for the Spider-Man who has everything? How about a brand new costume?
Come along True Believers, and join the old web-head on a little romp around the city, as he breaks in his new suit, and tries to spread some holiday cheer. He may not deck the halls, but he’ll definitely be decking some bad guys in this action-packed, web-slinging adventure.
Need something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving? Look no further than the Fantastic Four Thanksgiving Day Special.
Marvel’s First Family embark on a quest to the deadly Savage Land in search of the missing Black Bolt. They face danger at every turn, but nothing can compare to the horror of the Thing trying to cook Thanksgiving dinner!
So come with us, True Believers, as we present an adventure we could only call “Thanksgiving in a Savage Land!” Don’t you dare miss it!
Hasbro kicked off New York Comic Con with their “deskside chat” with the Marvel brand team. Ryan Ting from marketing and Bobby Vala from design shared their latest reveals and plans for 2019.
I’ll be brief, since I’m trying to actually get to the convention sometime today 😀 – but will update as I review the video of our conversation. The video should go up on our YouTube channel late tonight or tomorrow morning.
