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.
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.
What do you get when you team a web-slinging superhero with an unpredictable, mouthy mercenary, then toss in some Hydra agents and a couple of super villains, and then let them all loose on the Big Apple? You get a crazy, zany, non-stop action-packed adventure, with the year’s most shocking ending… That’s what you get!!
Don’t believe it? Well, you don’t have to take our word for it – check it out for yourself, true believer!
