Marvel canceling Thor Legends ComiCon exclusive?

by James


It’s not very marvelous news, if true, but it seems that Marvel may be cancelling the Marvel Legends Heroic Age Thor figure which they planned to release at ComiCon later this month …

The 6″ action figure was announced at the 2011 Toy Fair in New York last February and was even at the prototype stage. But with less than a week to go, Marvel Legends Heroic Age Thor is a no show on Hasbro/Marvel’s official releases for ComiCon exclusives. Attempts to contact Hasbro on the fate of Marvel Legends Heroic Age Thor have gone unanswered.

Course, that doesn’t mean anything. The week before ComiCon you’re going to be pretty busy packing up and getting ready to head south to San Diego. But the fact that there hasn’t been any released information on the Marvel Legends Heroic Age Thor figure is interesting and is causing speculation on the interwebs. Especially since the action figure was supposed to be the flagship of the Marvel Legends comeback line for Hasbro. Maybe there’s been design changes that’s causing delays. But one thing is certain, we’ll be asking about it at the HasbroToyShop.com booth when we get there.

Meanwhile, here’s a reminder of what Marvel/Hasbro are bringing to the Con:

MARVEL MINI MUGGS THE AVENGERS SPECIAL EDITION COLLECTOR’S PACK ($34.99), MARVEL UNIVERSE 16” SPECIAL EDITION SENTINEL FIGURE ($59.99), MARVEL MIGHTY MUGGS SPIDER-MAN SPECIAL EDITION FIGURE ($15.99). All of them will be available at the HasbroToyShop.com, Booth #3329 throughout the Con and in limited numbers afterwards online.

[...] Earlier this week, we speculated that the Marvel Legends Thor ComiCon exclusive may have been cancelled. Seems that wasn’t the case after all as Marvelous News has a sneak peak of this cool toy … and confirmation that it will be offered in San Diego. [...]
