Toy Fair 2008 – Update on Hasbro Marvel Con Exclusives and 2-Packs

{mosimage}Our friends at Hasbro were kind enough to send us some additional information and images on the upcoming summer convention exclusives and the upcoming Marvel Legends 2-packs.

  • Fin Fang Foom convention exclusive clarification – there was some confusion over whether the exclusive (limited to 2,008 sets) would include Foom plus a single Hulk figure, or if it would be Foom plus all 8 single carded figures from the upcoming Hulk Legends series (due Fall 2008).  We have confirmation from Hasbro that it is the latter – Foom, Hulk: The End, Savage She-Hulk, Absorbing Man, Wendigo, plus the four figures from wave 2 of Hulk Legends that have yet to be revealed.  That’s going to be one HUGE box!

  • Fin Fang Foom convention exclusive packaging – speaking of that huge box, we’ve got a first look at the packaging art for the exclusive.  As with the Ka-Zar, Shanna, and Zabu 3-pack, this box set will feature new artwork produced specifically for it.  In this case, Foom will wrap around the entire box.  For those who will be shipping this monster back home, we hear there will be an outer box that will protect the box featuring the artwork.
  • Iron Man SDCC Exclusive Mugg – for those of you looking forward to Shellhead’s debut in urban vinyl, Hasbro has given us a sneak peak via the control art for the con exclusive.
  • Marvel Legends 2-packs box art – lots of folks have been wondering what "COOL! switch parts!" means on the upcoming ML 2-packs.  We hear that there will be interchangeable heads, hands, and weapons.  The box art for the Elektra / Ronin 2-pack gives us another clue – it features an alternate / interchangeable head that’s different from the Elektra head that was on display in the Hasbro showroom.
