The fine folks at Hasbro have answered some questions for the fans at Toyark.com in relation to their Marvel brand action figures. Topics include the new Marvel Universe Fury Files line and Marvel Legeneds. Below is a transcript of the questions and answers. Enjoy!
Marvel Universe – Will the figures eventually come with stands like the 25th Joe line does, featuring their names and/or series numbers, etc?
It’s a future possibility, but there are no branded figure stands planned for 2009.
At Furyfiles.com – when you enter a code for a figure, will the site save your figures under your account, or will you have to enter the code each time you come back to see various characters info?
Ahhh, agent status has it’s privileges. The site will save all the codes you’ve entered under your custom agent profile. So once you’ve acquired access to certain files, you’ll maintain them in your own personal SHIELD database.
Are there any plans for themed Marvel Universe waves – aka All X-Men, all Spider-Man, etc?
The greatest thing about the Marvel Universe is the breadth of character so we’d rather go broad with every wave. You’ll definitely see some of these teams bunched together within a wave, but we aren’t planning to theme entire waves.
Will we ever see a return of the pack-in comics in Legends or Universe?
We have a good feeling about this one. That’s all we can say.
Marvel Universe – are there any plans for interchangeable armor to use between the figures, specifically for characters like Iron Man. Where a civilian/human figure could be the core, and armor is removable, and usable elsewhere, etc.
Sounds cool but it’s not something we’ve slotted into the line at the moment.
