Marvel Superhero Squad
« on: August 25, 2006, 10:16 AM »
Does anyone have info on these? They are Marvels attempt at the Star Wars Galactic Heroes line.  They are suppose to start shipping early 07 and I cant seem to find alot of info on these, other than the few pics shown at Comic-Con.  Anyone?

I think as it gets closer to when Hasbro officially starts releasing the items, more info will come out. My guess is toy fair.

ToyNewsI.com has a look at the first series from this line, which consists of the following 2 packs:

Captain America/Hawkeye
Cyclops/Magneto
Colossus/Angel
Wolverine/Sabretooth

Have a look at the first four packs at the linky, if interested.

Based on the pictures I see that Hasbro finally found a way to get X-Babies (Marvel Universe Babies) out to the public.
I have been told to go to hell; well at least I will know everyone there!

I would have preferred the henchmen box set and especially the Frog of Thunder!  ;D

I'm not sure if anyone is too interested in these here, but there have been pics posted over the past few days/weeks of some of the upcoming waves.

X-Men/F4 Wave

Spider-Man 3 Wave

Fantastic 4 Wave

I have to admit, I've been stashing some of these away for the future little one, and will hopefully continue to.  Like the Galactic Heroes line, it really seems like a simple, fun, and fairly inexpensive line for kids (or collectors).

Thanks for the pics.  I think these are pretty cool too - good way to get my kids started on action figures at an early age.   ;D

It looks like there is a new 8 Pack on the way, complete with a spiffy box w/handle.  Anyways, its 8 repaints, but they technically make some new figures, such as: USAgent, 1st App. Daredevil, Johnny Storm, War Machine, and more.

Pass.  Not worth it to get the Avengers figs unless its on clearance or something.

It looks like Galactus and a Sentinel are on the way for this line as well.  Pics at the linky.

If i was buying these I would be really happy. This does give me hope that we may someday get a galactic hero Rancor, Bantha, and Jabba the Hutt though  ;D

Looks like there are some more Mega Packs on the way, including an "ultimate version" Giant Man w/ Iron Man and an Apocalypse with "flocked" Beast.  The Beast is kind of cool, reminds me of the Moss Man figures from the He-Man lines.  You can see some pics in this thread over at the Fwoosh.

Found the big'uns the other day.

They're really cool, but I was hoping for a little more articulation, especially out of Galactus.  I'd say they're worth the $10 though.  :)
