Toyark is still here at SDCC and planning to bring you the Hasbro Marvel panel live! We will relay what they say and show to us via an interactive stream which you can read by clicking into the story. If our technology and network here all work nice, we will upload pics in real time too. Not sure if the Hasbro guys will put new stuff in the case afterwards, but if they do we’ll get them too. Panel starts at 4 PM Pacific, and booth pics sometime after 5 PM Pacific if they have them. Read on to join in!
Thanks guys. Check the thread for images! Should be all up and ready to go
An example of fan requested characters that got made … upcoming AIM soldiers. A lot of the BAF stuff. Upcoming Army Builders. This was the last question, and the panel is over now.
Stryfe is ready to go … need to find him ahome
Asking about a Stryfe character that was shown last year. Character was scrapped and being rebuilt.
They stated earlier that they are aware of it and to keep checking stores. But they have little control of it from their side. Has to do with retail ordering, etc
Comment From Ryan
has anyone asked about the running changes that haven’t shown up yet?
Playskool Marvel still happening, doing very well, etc
The new case packaging starts with the 2014 waves
Comment From ScienceFriction
For the final Marvel Universe waves, are the “running changes” one per case, as in both figures are in each case, or is it just one figure overall in each case? i.e. you get either or.
Someone asked if some changes were because Marvel is unhappy with Hasbro, and what the plans were when the license was up. Marvel guy said they are very happy with Hasbro.
Q: You say you watch the boards so why don’t you log in and just tell us running changes?
A: Corporately we cannot.
Q: Bring back the Ask Hasbro?
A: Not a bad idea.
Avengers will cover the Avengers and sneak in classic stuff. Marvel Legends will be movie-themed for each movie and sneak in classic stuff. Basically, they’re going full movie packaging and will put in classic representations of the characters alongside the movie characters.
Comment From dancurto
So universe is only name change? Not themed lines?
Comment From Guest
what in numbers is the ironmsan armour you said
I believe so yes. The more bulky one with muscles and stuff
Comment From Guest
is black cat using the new female body mold?
“Theres an Avengers 2 movie coming out right? :) ”
Comment From Guest
Anything about a Legends movie version Black Widow?
Panel hinting that Mark VII Iron Man figure could (wink wink) be in the Avengers 2 line
3 packs no. 2 packs not mentioned
Comment From NYKID
Will 3.75 2pks and 3pks continue under Avenger Line?
Marvel Universe 3.75 will be “Avengers”, no more “Marvel Universe”
Panel did mention that they will still get the lesser known characters represented in the 3.75 and 6″ lines. Just will have the line represented in each movie as opposed to a stand-alone line. So you could see Black Cat released in the Captain America movie line of toys
No BAF planned for 3.75″ line
Q&A starting now. Crowd seems happier than when panel started
Sorry, the Captain America Winter Soldier stuff will be in booth on Sunday
Star-Lord 6″ for ML … no detail when

ex: Case of 8, all figures (including variants) in each case. But packed 1 per case for variants. Back to GIant Man wave from ToyBiz days
Talking about ending variants, but instead being packed 1 per case
Red Skull (movie). A.I.M Soldier (movie)

2014 no more “mini” build a figure .. back to normal size

Talking about SDCC exclusives
Panel begins. Adam from Hasbro Marvel marketing here. And another marketing person. Dwight Stall designer is here. Jessie falcon from Marvel here as well
I will be as descriptive as I can. They go through info fast, so bear with me
This will be our last live panel for SDCC 2013. Pics will be uploaded real time
Just for the record, this is Kickback, so direct all the hate mail to me :)
I will be honest – Mattel OWNS Hasbro in panels. Hasbro is like “Here’s our stuff kbye” and Mattel is all “Here’s our stuff, here’s free stuff for you, hey vote on this real quick, and then come get more free stuff”
There are some things I have seen here that I will never un-see :(
Comment From Secretcode
How many Bronies in awkward cosplay have you seen?
I am your host, Kickback, and to my right is sleeping-CIAD.
Just kidding. Hasbro Marvel panel, woooo
