SDCC 2012: Awesome Toy Picks: Marvel Universe Figures

More cool collectibles you can look forward to seeing in a toy store near you.

There is so much to see at Comic-Con. We already posted a look at the upcoming DC Collectibles figures and statues. The Hasbro booth had a load of Marvel figures and I couldn't resist posting those as well.

The great thing about the Marvel Universe line is pretty much any character can be made into an action figure. Looking at this batch of figures, that is exactly what they are doing.

The 3.75" figures may not have as much detail as the Legends line but the thing I love is the fact that they are small so you can buy more and have the space for them.

Now sit back and enjoy the look at what we have to look forward to.

NOVA!!

There's some more two packs coming.

There's also some box sets coming.

A bunch of random figures were also on display. There's so many great ones coming. I just hope I'll be able to find the ones I want at the stores.

There's also more Avengers product coming out.

What about Marvel Legends? There's some cool characters getting made soon.

Probably the coolest thing at the Hasbro booth was the display they had set up. Who wouldn't want to have the job of setting this all up? Who wouldn't want this displayed at home?

Shame you forgot to mention the Sharon Carter MU figure,

Still this SDCC has been a bit on the disappointing side with regards to MU news only a couple of new figures shown

@leokearon: "disappointing"? That line up is great. I came in with Marvel Legends and have gone to far too switch now. Look at all the characters they have! Inhumans! Wrecking Crew! SHIELD HELLICARRIER!

HYPERION AND US AGENT !!!

@leokearon: There is a picture of her, the fourth to last (and sorta second to last). I couldn't mention all of them. Too much to update on the site. I CAN'T DO IT ALL, MAN!

I never appreciated the 3.75 " figures until I saw these displays. I get it now.

Need to snag that X-Force Deadpool and Punisher Marvel Legends when they come out. Maybe Iron Fist too.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

I want the FF Spidey and Doom the most out of all these.

Storm? Oh dear...

That display is a childhood dream come true!

@leokearon: I believe the Sharon Carter figure (along with the Norman Osborn and Purple Man, plus the Doombots) are only customs they made for the diorama.

You know what's really funny? Looking at the weapons that come with the upcoming Marvel Legends Blade, Punisher, and Mystique, it takes only a minute to realize that the guns are oversized versions of GI Joe guns from the Pursuit of Cobra/30th Anniversary line.

I must get the FF Spidey!

I really wish they provided power accessories with Marvel Legends figures. Maybe an energy beam that attaches to Iron Man's hand or an optic blast that attaches to Cyclops' face, for example.

If you like Marvel Legends then it is a good SDCC,

MU not so much, hardly any new figures announced

not exactly the FF variant for the F4 tema pack was first seen in last years Diaroma, so there is a good chance they could be released in the future

Love the Spidey with the bag on his head!

Posted by clemj

the set is freaking awsome

Posted by Mucklefluga

Anyone know roughly when the Nova will be released?

Posted by blueninjapanther

I hate that the toys are now small

Posted by Bestostero

Marvel Universe is so awesome, I wished so badly that DC and Mattel would do a line similar like this, but they just dont get it.

Posted by lastdrag0n89

I wonder if the Sentry action figure comes with a sun for him to throw stuff into :D.

Posted by Miss_Garrick

AARRGGHH!! Is this Iron Fist 6 inches or what?!? I MUST KNOW!!!

Posted by danhimself

I'm so disappointed in the helicarrier....they should have taken inspiration from the old G.I.Joe toys and made a huge helicarrier that housed tons of figures like the G.I.Joe aircraft carrier and Cobra base

@leokearon: Take a close look at each of the figures--the Purple Man is a complete repaint of the SDCC 2009 GI Joe Destro figure; the Norman Osborn is just the Iron Patriot variant head atop that same Destro's body; the Sharon Carter is a GI Joe: Renegades Scarlett atop the Avengers Black Widow figure. I doubt Hasbro is going to mix GI Joe body molds--despite using weapon molds--in the Marvel Universe line.

Who is the guy shooting blue stuff at Mr. Sinister in the black and blue suit with his hair showing? I love the Iron Fist figure as well as the FF Spiderman. And the Inhumans is also a must have.... ~KL~

Posted by crazyflashfan11

Blade is just TOO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by happypup70

@Miss_Garrick: Yup six inches on that Iron fist.

Posted by RedOwl_1

Nooooooooooooooooooovaaaaaaaaaaaa! Ooooooooooooooooh yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesssssssss

Posted by BritishMonkey

there's finally a nova figure

i'm so happy about this, i'll be getting it as soon as it's out

also, where's beta ray bill? that should be amongst all this

Posted by Overlander

LOL Puck is a choking hazard. Shame that label is because of that bird, rather than the character.

Posted by TheMess1428

What's up with the reversed Future Foundation Spider-Man toy?

Posted by The_Kid_Lantern

Just noticed a Dark Hawk figure next to Night Hawk and above Nova! Gonna look out for that one.... ~KL~

Posted by jordama

Legends Ass

Posted by xanthiss

The Longshot figure looks like Gordon Ramsey! :oD

Legends Ass

hahahaha nice but looks nice .

Posted by Necrotic_Lycanthrope

@Miss_Garrick:

Looks like a Marvel Universe fig. If you look closer at Red She-Hulk in the background, her label is Marvel Universe.

Posted by Nudeviking

Want Jubilee Marvel Universe action figure...

Posted by Blood1991

She-Hulk and Hercules.... YES!

Posted by LordRequiem

Wow, and a Sentry toy, excellent! I've noticed in the Amazing Spider-Man game and just on here that sometimes his Future Foundation costume switches the colours round. Has that always been the case? I thought it to be white with a a bit of black not the other way round.

Posted by Miss_Garrick

@happypup70: HALLELUJAH!!!

Posted by DeusVult

SWEET!!!!!!! This is way cooler then the DC figures and collectibles!!!!!

Posted by fanged_wolf

when's the release date on the new marvel legends toy lines?

Posted by NyxEquitis

Too many figures, too little cash....

Posted by Jayso4201

I think it looks like an epic battle tho!

Posted by ka385385

Elektra looks great ,but where is that ghost rider's bike came from?

Posted by ccrosby

@TheMess1428: I've read that it's the 'stealth mission' variant of the costume (same one they used in the Amazing Spider-Man game), they had the regular FF spidey one on display as well.

Posted by ccrosby

It should be noted that Hit Monkey is the build a figure for that wave. Though you only need to collect three figures to build him. He looks great in person.

Posted by Vincie_Pooh

I want to see God of War Ares! Where is it? That Purple man and Norman Osborn figures.... I want a Norman Osborn in a suit! I know we should get a Toy Stark in a suit... yes we should. but seeing that Osborn figure.. All I need is that Marvel universe wave of Professor X. (get about 2 of him.) Then pop the head off on one of them. And put a Norman Osborn head on that came with that Variant from Iron Patriot Marvel Universe. A quick and simple head swap/custom.

My wish and want list out of this line.

1.) God Of War Ares

2.) Wasp Janet in yellow and Black

3.) Young Avengers Pack All of them!

4.) Modern day Hawkeye

5.) Kaine Scarlett Spider

6.) Flash the NEW Venom

7.) X-Men Bishop

8.) ThunderStrike!

9.) Howard the Duck! (LOL I'm not joking)

10.) Super Skrulls! Or the First Super Skrull

(I still gotta build up on my marvel legends from Hasbro) (I miss Marvel when they where with Toy Biz.)

In Vonner we Trust! =)

ME TOO! I like their look but not their size. I already have a huge collection and I can't just double it and get all the smaller versions as well. Makes me so made because I like their look and I've found some characters in the small version, but not the Legends size..
