Hasbro is a tricky company to get info from, and often times they just drop random tidbits of info to various publications an action figure enthusiest may neglect to look at. Luckily once these things are found they spread like wildfire. Today Hasbro dropped some news on a possible new Iron Man 3 Legends line (past the current Build-A-Iron Monger series I would assume) and we finally get some solid information on the SDCC 2013 exclusive Boba Fett.
First up, Mandarin. News broke today from I09 that a six-inch scale Mandarin action figure under the Marvel Legends banner would be released. This also included a picture and all! The only thing that poses questions is whether this is a running change to the current Build-A-Iron Monger series of if there will be an additional Iron Man 3 series this year.
We do know Marvel Legends has a fairly ambitious schedule this year as their Toy Fair panel showed. Hopefully this Mandarin shows up before we all have forgotten about Iron Man 3 as it comes out this weekend in the US.
It seems like forever since we last heard about the whole Star Wars Black series phenomenon. Well, we finally got confirmation of what we already knew: Boba Fett with Han in Carbonite will be the 2013 SDCC Exclusive. The set will include the first six-inch scale Boba Fett packed with two blasters, his jetpack, and of course Han in a carbonite block. The set will cost $44.99 and will be sold at the show. Leftovers will be available at Hasbrotoyshop.com, no news on when that will be (if the past is an indicator they will randomly appear on the site after the show some time).
Iron Man Legends series 2 has also hit retail and Amazon! We got a set in and will have a review this week.
