So does this deal also mean that Hasbro will do Marvel Select and Icons? Because the Hasbro Legends are bleeeeeh and the only good marvel thing hasbro has done is Ghost Rider. Really hope they dont kill my fav toy line. I have seen rumors saying hasbro does icons now but I dunno.

I think Marvel still has the rights to do the Select line.

I really hope so. The Select Line is great and I think there will be a Ghost Rider for it.

Marvel and Diamond select have nothing to do with Toybiz and hasbro , so yes. The Ghost Rider and the Caretaker are coming out soon from M. Select. They also have Super Skrull and brood coming out too. and the ICONS are already out. Wolverine and Thor are at Target as we speak.(type?)

Thats awesome Diamond Select will do a Caretaker and Brood! But thats too bad Hasbro does Icons now. Hope they look better than the Legends figures they make. Thanks for the info.

Yeah, they really look good. Thor and Wolvie and Punisher and Dr. Doom are the first two sets. The Doom looks so bad assss.

Really? I have to see that. Maybe they are just trying to make us think they are bad and then they will do good! :lol:

In the other thread like this I posted pictures of the new ICONS, the doom looks rad, The wolvie is just a brown repaint of the toybiz one (same sculpt) and the thore is quality as well, I need to see the pun up close before I can tell on that one..lol..

Well I just saw the Doom and if they can make such a great doom they can do better legends! Just go to http://www.hasbro.com/marvel/ to see them. They are doing better!

Thor looks awesome. I didn't buy him because I was busy shelling out dough on clearance stuff at the time, but I really like the look of him. I especially like the cloth cape.

I am glad the cape is not made of plastic. Beta Ray's plastic cape is nice. Wish it was a cloth cape. Do you know if Hasbro will do an Onslaught figure?

Mephisto is the next Marvel Select figure coming out. He's been pushed back to March I believe. Skrull and Brood come out after that I believe, followed by Ghost Rider. I haven't heard anything about Caretaker, just Marvel Zombies.
