We had the opportunity to get back together with the Hasbro Marvel design team after the other night’s amazing reveals and do a short interview. I recorded it and uploaded the video to our YouTube feed, so feel free to check it out here. I apologize if I sound a little nervous at the beginning, but this is the first time I’ve had a chance for myself and David to sit down with the team one on one.
It was a great experience, and we look forward to any future opportunities to chat with them. I do want to thank Justin and Brandon at Hunter PR as well as Dwight, Mike, and Tony who fielded our questions and quite a bit of praise (hey, I was really excited about the reveals!).
Here is a basic rundown of what we discussed:
We talk 2016 plans, as far as quantities of figures compared to 2015.
The concerns over branding both the 3 3/4″ and 6″ lines as “Marvel Legends.”
How we got to this point with Marvel Legends, where it is again one of the biggest presences in the toy isle.
Movie tie-ins as well as comic tie-ins.
How hands on is Marvel in the character selection process?
Dwight is a big fan of Benedict Cumberbatch … maybe this is a hint of a Dr. Strange movie wave?
Secret Wars two-packs planned for Marvel Legends 3 3/4″ scale.
We really want that Sauron custom shown at SDCC to be a real figure, and Tony agrees (Tony did not put us up to this!)
