Hasbro's Marvel Comics Q&A: The Answers!
Posted by Curto on October 29, 2008 at 01:00 PM CST:
We've passed on 5 of your burning Marvel Comics questions! So check out the latest scoop we've got for you this all-new, all-different monthly Q&A session with Hasbro.

Cool Toy Review: Since he picked up the mantle of Captain America, Bucky has become one of the most high profile characters in Marvel for 2008. I'm certainly glad that we got classic Bucky last year, but when can we expect to see Bucky as Cap in either the Marvel Legends or 3 3/4" scale line? (For that matter, can we look forward to a Winter Soldier figure?)

Hasbro: You have no idea what a big Cap (& Winter) fan you're talking to. The Brubaker / Epting run on Cap Am has been amazing and I can't wait to see what's going to happen next. All I can say is???you've got a friend in me.

Cool Toy Review: Will the 3 3/4 line include movie variants or is it strictly comics?

Hasbro: Marvel Universe is all Comic inspired. With almost 70 years of material and 5,000 characters we need to focus!

Cool Toy Review: Thank you Hasbro for re-releasing the Marvel Legends Kang figure! Any chance you will follow it up with his casemate, Dragon Man?? please?

Hasbro: No plans in the immediate future for a Dragon Man re-release. However, we do realize that this ask is echoed by lots of collectors. It's on the list of future possibilities.

Cool Toy Review: Does the "35 single carded figures in 2009" for the Marvel Universe line include the variants, meaning we've seen all but one of the figures at Comic-con, or are the variants not counted as figures, meaning there's still around 10 figures yet to reveal for next year?

Hasbro: Nick Fury says there are still at least 10 figures for 2009 that fans and collectors haven't seen yet. At least???...

Cool Toy Review: With the focus on the Marvel Universe line in 2009, are there any plans for BAF-style characters, and if so, would they be in the typical Marvel Legends size, or something even bigger, like the ICONS scale? I think it would be great to see these lines continue on with the larger characters and bringing them under the Marvel Universe banner.

Hasbro: Very cool idea. There are a lot of larger scale characters that have NEVER been done. We want to get to those too.
