Just a little peek up at ActionFigureInsider
of some of the Marvel Universe stuff, mainly showing new figures of Iceman and Firestar, alongside Spidey. If that is an "Amazing Friends" 3 pack or something, I'd definitely pick one of those up. I really liked that cartoon as a kid. There also appears to be a display
up advertising "70 Heroes for the 70th Anniversary", and it says "pick five", so I wonder if there is some sort of fan poll on the way for this line as well.
Update, as there is a little more news at AFI
. First, there will be large scale figures in the MU line (Icons sized, it says) - first coming exclusively at WM (Giant Man is shown). Also, more details on all things Marvel:
*More Legends Stuff on the Way, but nothing new (that isn't already announced/shown) in 2009
*Movie Lines will be 3 3/4" as well, most lines will have movie and comic assortments
*Singles, Two Packs, Three Packs, and Box Sets, and Exclusives in the MU line.
More detail at the linky, but I have to say that the MU line is sounding pretty good so far. Sure, the Legends news is disappointing (but maybe not surprising) - and it would have been nice had they just been in this scale from the beginning (man would it help display space) - but I still have to say I'm tempted by this line, and will likely pick up at least a few.
