I think I know what Hasbro maybe doing, it looks like they have two line one is the legends line and the other is going to be a a Marvel hero line using the old ToyBiz molds. The reason I say this is on the Hasbro site they show an Iceman from the Marvel Heros line.

Thought it was, you're right...my bad. I still think it's looking like two lines, I could be wrong.

Hasbro Marvel toys

Postby Caretaker68 » Sun Feb 25, 2007 10:56 pm

You know, i sat down recently and made a list of what characters would make great figures in the new Hasbro Toy line, my opinion remember.....and i think i came up with at least 6 BAF's and over 3 pages of figures that would be sweet to have.
Anybody know a way i could get them there and attempt to get them looked at or even considered?
Just to share a few how about: a Femme Fatale line consisting of Typhoid Mary, Black Cat, Diamondback, Titania, Quicksand, Hela, and Spider-girl.
BAF's could be: Living Monolith, Odin, Fin Fang Foom, Tyrant (from silver surfer comics), Red Ronin, Terminus, Master Mold, and a Celestial.
Want more?:USAgent, Flag-Smasher, Scourge, Thanos, Morg, Thunderstrike, how about an entire 2099 line of Spider-man/Hulk/Punisher/Doom/Ghost Rider/Ravage???
Nimrod, Brood, Spiral, Bastion, Goblyn Queen, Mephisto, Doc Samson, Spymaster, Ghost, Gladiator from the Shi'ar!!
Just to name a few, i would kill to have these or i will make my own and to hell with Hasbro making 25 new Wolverines, 25 Spider-man's, 15 Hulk's and etc that the Marvel Legends spiralled down to....
Sorry, on a rant, i will stop now. :D

That would be nice, but it would be big, almost too big for a Brood, dontcha think?
I dunno, it would still be great to have one, now if they will start work on the rest of my list! :lol:

I know this topic hasn't been posted in in awhile, but if you are a Transformers person, you should already know this: Hasbro likes repaints. The Armada Deluxe Optimus Prime has been repainted 3 times now, Armada Nemesis Prime, Universe Ultra Magnus, and Cybertron Speed Planet(I Think) Optimus Prime.

The funny thing is in the 80s, with the GiJoe line anyway, repaints were rare. Not until the 90s(near the end of the RAH line) did you see many. The only exceptions being Tiger Force and the sub Teams but even they wernt all reused molds. I think when they were making money hand over fist they were putting out all new product but as intrest waned the cut as many costs as possible

I have confirmation it is a BAF brood queen and No it would be amout the right size if you figure a standard brood is the size of a adult human and she is twice that.

Are you sure all the pics I've seen looks like old mold Mutant X paint job. I may be wrong but not from the pics I am seeing. Please show me 2 of them side by side.
