More Marvel! The big news at the show was the triumphant return of the large-scale Marvel Legends figures after a brief hiatus. History says competing scales are usually bad, but we'll see how that works out now that jumbo versions of Capatain America, Hope Summers, and Iron Man are on deck for later this year. Also on display were the newly-packaged Iron Man figures which started shipping in January, but have yet to hit any known American toy store unless they buy from an online distributor.
Promiting the far-flung future of 2012 was a priority with a giant life-size cardback for the upcoming The Avengers movie. The first figure for The Amazing Spier-Man movie was on display, and it looked great. Additional new non-movie figures like a new Venom were shown and are even said to be available now, but I defy you to find it. Marvel Universe has a really strong showing on deck with X-23, another new Spider-Man,
A new line of Avengers characters with fancy display stands were also shown but I was unable to find the pricing or info on those. Obviously, there's no shortage on those characters, but at least Hasbro is making sure they're out there. Another exciting basic figure in Marvel Universe is a new Hulk with a much-improved head sculpt and haircut. It's the little things that makes the line exciting, but the big things like the Sentinel are nothing to sneeze at either. Hasbro had a massive diorama set up with dozens of figures fighting the robots.
