Cancelled Marvel Universe figures

Does anyone know if Erik Josten was planned in the 3.75 line before it got axed?

He's on the box art for the SDCC Helicarrier set, but was there were a prototype or plans of any kind made public?

I think he was supposed to come with the SDCC set, and it wouldn’t cost out. Whirlwind did make it out as part of the relaunched MU line.

Yeah, one of the Hasbro designers (not Dwight, Ryan, or Dan) had the prototype for that figure behind him on a shelf during one of their fan streams in the last year. I want to say it was HasCon last fall.

Bummer, because I consider the giant MU figures passable with ML.

The timeline is a bit messy, I had to read it 3 times to understand this

Wasn't it because Hasbro decided to just concentrate on the 6" line.
