When 3A Toys picked up a license from Valve, the video game developers for hit franchises like Counter Strike, Team Fortress, and Left 4 Dead, my mind reeled with the possibilities. After all, there are a lot of synergies – army men and zombies?

In addition to the massive displays of World War Robot, Adventure Kartel, and Popbot, I was excited to see some new prototypes and figures from some of the newer licenses that they’ve acquired.

In particular, the Capcom prototypes were really illustrative of the kind of work 3A can do that is not 3a-styled, if you know what I mean. Should give some ideas on what we might see (or not see) with respect to the Marvel license.
