More news from Comic Con
Firstly, I have to offer a HUGE apology to everyone,
especially Rob, Bobbi and Julius. I screwed up badly
yesterday. Here's some bad, hreatbreaking news, gang:
Remember that thrid series of X-Men 2 movie figures
that I reported? Well, I talked to Jesse today, and
sadly, they *ain't* happening after all. The figures
were manufactured, but retailers lost interest in the
line and the plans were scrapped. They won't be
I'm sorry, folks. Mea Culpa. I saw that name card in
the display case that listed the figures and I assumed
that when Jesse arrived, he'd have them along with the
new Hulk X-Men and Marvel Legends assortments. Well,
you know what they say happens when you ASS-U-ME. I
am very, very sorry. I'm as disappointed as you are.
I wanted a Lady Deathstrike figure so bad my teeth
hurt. The worst part is, there's one made that we'll
never see. :-(
Well, on to the *good* news:
There will be at least *one* Punisher movie figure,
and it will probably appear in Marvel Legends just
like Blade 2 and the Ben Affleck Daredevil. That will
more than likely be the only Punisher movie figure we
Marvel Legends will be bumped up to three assortments
a year. Woo-Hoo! Jesse will have two waves of Marvel
Legends on display at next year's Toy Fair, along with
two new boxed sets. Let the speculation begin.
Invisible Woman *will* happen.
Silver Surfer's base *is* wall mountable! It tilts on
a 360 degree angle. Jesse isn't sure yet if Mr.
Fantastic's base will be wall mountable or not.
Doop will be the sidekick in Series 6. Jesse wouldn't
tell me which figure he'll be packaged in.
Roto, large scaled figures for Marvel Legends?
Possibly. In fact, one's been manufactured.
Jesse says that Red Skull will be easier to find then
Gold Iron Man. He doesn't like the idea of chase
figures, either, but this is the only way we'll get a
Red Skull. He *is* a Nazi, you know. The retailers
are the ones who keep requesting chase figures, and as
long as they're the ones doing the ordering, we're
going to continue to get'em.
