Hasbro continues to reveal more of their 2009 product line at Toy Fair with new images of Astonishing X-Men Cyclops, Iceman, and a maskless Wolverine!
It would seem as if Hasbro is really pressing forward with the 3 3/4″ movement, and Marvel is coming along for the ride. I’ve captured pictures and press images of all Marvel 1:18 figures and gear, and will be hosting them all in various galleries within this post.
The last few days have been a whirlwind, and I’ve been trying to get up as much coverage and pictures as possible, and I’m still digging through notebooks for information as its needed. Keep in mind when viewing the scores of Rise of COBRA product that this is Hasbro’s main focus for 2009, and it should be. With a 170 million dollar budget, this is a very critical point in the G.I. Joe brand, and this could either skyrocket it into the public conscious or it could negatively impact the brand for a long time. Anyone who wants G.I. Joe as a whole to be successful should hope that the film does well, even if it’s not your cup of tea. Heck, the film isn’t really my cup of tea, but I’m going to support it and I’ll be crossing my fingers that it makes a profit and maybe enough of a profit to give G.I. Joe the current “street cred” that Transformers now has. I have a feeling it will be an uphill battle.
So, even though I only stuck around for the Hasbro stuff, HissTank.com has been lingering around Toy Fair, and picked up on a few additional G.I. Joe related items of note.
