Updated Post

I know we have a large thread dedicated to Marvel Legends. Hell, I started it way back when. But I'm hoping that Staff won't mind if I make an off-shoot thread for just the Superhero Squad. After all, we have a whole section for the Star Wars Galactic Heroes. Also, major thanks to JT for deciding to put this in the GH section. ;)

Anyone else collecting this line? Other than the occassional X-Based Marvel Legend and the Marvel Figurine Collection, it's the only line that I've actually jumped in with both feet to collect them all. I just love these little guys, and the I'm trying to resist getting into the Star Wars version. Especially since they're finally doing Jar Jar. :D

Got the Fantastic Four series from Hasbro.Com with the 25% Off/Free Shipping Code.

The limited articulation of the figures, which I don't normally mind, suffers even more with this series. Thankfully it looks like that's not going to become a standard, since Series IV looks to have the stanadard articulation again. Not sure why they knocked it down in this series, whether it was due to sculptor prefrence, costing issues, or what.

Mr. Fantastic/Super Skrull - Reed only has two points of articulation at the shoulders. The stretching arms appear to be made out of a slightly softer plastic, so that they can be bent a bit. Not sure if by design, or simply due to the materials. Like the rest of the FF figures in the series, Reed is in his Ultimate Fantastic Four costume. The Super Skrull however is the real star of the set. Modeled after the character's 616 appearance, the clear flames and invisible foot are nice touches. Unfortunatly, the figure suffers from only having waist articulation.

Invisible Woman/Dr. Doom - Frankly, I have to say that this is the least "fun" of the four sets that were released. Much like Wasp, Sue has no articulation what so ever. However she's nicely sculpted and the quasi-invisible feet are a nice touch. You might want to be careful when picking her out... paint overspray can be a bit heavy and ruin the phasing effect. Though I hear that can be fixed. Dr. Doom is a really nice figure, but due to the cloak only features arm articulation. He thankfully is based off the character's 616 appearance.

The Thing/Namor - A really nice set, but it suffers from a lot of problems. The biggest one being that both Thing and Namor feature almost no articulation what so ever. Both of them each get just a fairly pointless waist joint. Also, Ben's rocky hide is colored a light yellow-orange instead of the more accurate orange. Thankfully the articulation and coloring seems to be better on the Thing that comes with Mole Man next wave. Not a big fan that Hasbro went with Namor's black costume over his green fishscale speedo though.

Human Torch/Silver Surfer - When it comes to articulation, this is the worst set of the bunch. Since neither of them have even one joint. However, I give it much higher marks because the figures are great. Johnny Storm has some really cool clear flames for a base and coming off his head and hands. And the Silver Surfer just is a really nice looking figure. I'm a bit disappointed that he wasn't Vac Metal like the Prototype, but he's still nice and shiny.

Spidey's probably a safe bet since it's got a big summer movie going right now, it's a bread-and-butter line in that way.

The playset is a cute idea but seems kinda small.

Black Cat is awesome, and I can't remember the last version of her that hasn't been pornstar proportioned.

Mysterio looks good except he's dinky!

I don't even know who Puma is but he looks lame.

Venom with mouth closed looks even sillier, the tongue sticking out the side is a chuckle.

I just wish they'd quit packing Spider-Man with everyone. It's a bit annoying after you've gotten a few sets of these to have a half dozen+ Spider-Man figures. It would be ok if they could do different comic costumes, but since they seem to still be basing the line on Spider-Man 3 and the video games... we keep getting new poses of the movie Spidey. Hell, do a few more Black Costume versions, since the only one in SHS so far is in wall-crawl pose.

As for Puma: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puma_%28comics%29

Marvelousnews.com has pics of the SHS figures from SDCC:

It looks like Series V and VI were on display going by the above info.

It also appears we're getting a possible X-Men boxset. As Juggernaut (X-Men Repaint) Professor X, AXM Shadowcat, AXM Cyclops, FA Iceman (Repaint), and Wolverine (Brown) were on display infront of the already relased TRU Boxsets.

Hasbro spent a lot of time talking about Transformers and Star Wars, but I didn't see anybody from their teams dealing with Marvel or GI Joe really, so I never got the word on that stuff.

Honestly as much as I love the idea of Flocked Beast, I wish they'd packed someone else with Apocalypse and saved the Beast for an X-Men boxset. Archangel would have been cool and more logical choice. Since Beast wasn't even furry or in the speedo costume the first time Apocalypse debuted in the comics.

Not that he hasn't faced Apocalypse at all like that, but he seems like something of a random inclusion. At least in comparison to the other 3 Mega Packs. Most likely he was the cheapest and funnest 'Redo' in order to keep costs down since the Ult. Iron Man figure who comes with Ult. Giant Man is an all new sculpt.

There is something so wrong about that Vulture figure's face. And Exorcist Spidey? Even Kraven looks surprised.

Hey, look at that, as lousy as it is, a Spidey SHS pack without a Spidey fig!

Beast
08-23-2007, 10:47 AM
You think the Sandman/Venom pack is lousy? I actually really like it myself.

Also, Superhero Squad Series IV is finally showing up at retail. Over on Fwoosh someone found all four packs at their local Wal-Mart. About time.

Just FYI, last week I found Wave 3 of the Spider-Man SHS series (Lizard, Scorpion, etc) at Walmart, and just this afternoon I went over to TRU and found the Collectors Pack AND the Spider-Man: SHS Playset. Didn't realize I'd be spending that much money today. Dang, those things were expensive.

Still no sign of Mega-Packs or Wave 4 though....

Beast
08-24-2007, 02:44 PM
Nice haul, Tchalla8. And welcome to the forums. How's the playset? I guess you're eagerly anticipating the Black Panther/Storm 2-Pack that's coming up. ;)

From what I'm hearing elsewhere... someone just found the basic series Wave IV at Wal-Mart in their area. So hopefully it will start turning up. I'd be happy enough with it showing up for sale on Hasbro's website. That's where I got Wave III.

tchalla8
08-24-2007, 03:23 PM
Thanks for the welcome. Glad to be here.

And yes, I've had BP and Storm on my radar for quite a while now..LOL

The playset is nice. Wish we weren't dealing with so many repaints again. Same story on the Collector's Box. More repaints, although having US Agent, Classic DD and War Machine is still pretty cool

Down with repaints!!! LOL

Laterz

Beast
08-24-2007, 03:34 PM
At least most of the repaints make sense. So I don't mind them too much.

I'd rather have them issue a repaint boxset than do running changes in the figures.

Especially since usually that ends up leaving one of the variants hard to find. :)

tchalla8
08-24-2007, 03:42 PM
Speaking of variants. You have to wonder when there going to start inserting "chase" figures into this line. Surprised they haven't already.

I don't think they want to go down that road for Superhero Squad.

The only reason they kept it for ML, was because it was frankly expected.

tchalla8
08-24-2007, 03:51 PM
Never say never, man. They'll come up with somethin'. They've already issues "exclusives" to TRU. Only one step away.

JediTricks
08-25-2007, 03:22 AM
You think the Sandman/Venom pack is lousy? I actually really like it myself.I think Sandman looks ridiculous in the face, and I don't care for Venom's hunchback or that Venom tongue again, that seems really played out to me.


I suspect they know the Spidey line wouldn't be able to support a single chase figure there, too many Spidey variants already as it is, fans would be really annoyed. As for the Marvel line, it looks like they know they can use repaints and slight changes to get buyers to pick up box sets so I don't see them pulling that ML stuff any time soon. Heck, I think SHS may be the only Hasbro Marvel line not underperforming, it'd be unwise to mine those waters.

Beast
08-27-2007, 07:10 PM
Wal-Mart indeed seems to be the place to go for the Spider-Man SHS Series III. I found multiples of Green Goblin/New Goblin, Spider-Man/Lizard, and Spider-Man/Scorpion there today. All of them are great, especially Lizard. Though whoever was in charge of painting Scorpions in the factory is really sloppy with their work. They seem to be the one figure in the series with consistant paint issues. Nothing too serious, but make sure you spend extra time checking him over.

tchalla8
08-30-2007, 09:55 AM
Just FYI....the Spider-Man playset is pretty darn cheap. My kids were playing with it last night, and half the parts won't stay on. Nice job, Hasbro.

Loved the Collector's Pack though. It actually DOES hold all my SHS figures (and I have all of them)

Beast
08-30-2007, 11:23 AM
Sorry to hear about that, tchalla8. I've heard complaints about the Spider-Man figure in the set... this is the first time I've heard complaints about the playset it's self. I'll probably still get it for the shirtless variant of Doc Ock though. :)

Great to hear about the Collector's Pack though. I hope I can find one Friday.

tchalla8
08-30-2007, 11:27 AM
Yeah, the Spider-man fig in there is definitely junk...one little tug and the arms pop off, and you can pop him in half just by breathing on him...

I don't want to turn this whole thread into a 'Wishlist' thread.
But, since we know Hasbro haunts these boards, it never hurts for suggestions.
So what's everyone's Top 10 most wanted SHS 2-Packs. :D

1. Astonishing X-Men Beast / Dark Beast
2. Archangel (Death) / Apocalypse (Normal Sized)
3. Quicksilver / Scarlet Witch
4. Thunderbird / Sunfire
5. Ultron / Yellowjacket
6. Ms. Marvel / Wonder Man (Red Safari Jacket)
7. Mr. Sinister / Mystique
8. Green Goblin (Comic) / Hobgoblin (Comic)
9. Havok / Polaris
10. Emma Frost / Marvel Girl (Rachel)

I'd like to see an Iron Man evolution pack. Have every major suit deisgn from the original til now. That could easily be a 10 pack. This would be optimal for when the Iron Man movie comes out.

That would be kind of neat. It would be a new concept for these lines.

They could do the same with characters like Anakin, Obi-Wan, Luke, etc. in GH.

Of course, I don't think it would play to kids as well as it would to collectors.

Series IV of Superhero Squad seems to be finally getting out there more.

I finally found Beast/Iceman, Phoenix/Wolverine (Brown), and Mole Man/The Thing at Wal-Mart today. Two sets of each except for Phoenix/Wolverine with only the one.

As I noted in the Haul thread, Nightcrawler/Juggernaut seems to be the HTF one.

ActionFigs.Com has hi-res pictures of Superhero Squad Series V. Loose and carded.

http://www.actionfigs.com/index.php?categoryid=18&p2_articleid=1621

Annihilus & Human Torch - Love Annihilus. Even if we are getting yet another HT.
Storm & Black Panther - My favorite set of the group. Love the Giant Size Storm. :)
Wolverine & Weapon X Cycle - Cool. Though I wish he had a jacket and cowboy hat.
Ult. Captain America & Ult. Nick Fury - I like the Cap. Not a big fan of Fury's face.

Edit: On second thought. I really like how Wolverine looks in the tank top.

JediTricks
09-12-2007, 05:12 PM
Human Torch is awesome, I love that they did it that way, half-ignited.

Storm is so funny, a little, half-nude, prancing action figure.

Wolverine works, but the cycle's paint isn't tight enough, looks like leopard spots.

Ultimates Cap & Nick are ok, both have oddness though. Not digging how they did Cap's pants crotch with all that gray, and Fury's eye is painted WAY off to the side.

Beast
09-12-2007, 08:12 PM
Cap's costume looks like that in the Ultimates though.

But yeah, Fury's eye is wonky. I thought it was the placement of the eyepatch at first. But as you and others have noted, the eye is painted way off center.

JediTricks
09-13-2007, 04:43 AM
I know the gray is accurate on Ultimate Cap but the application seems too bold, too high or something.


Look at Fury's sculpt, the eye socket is one place but his eye paint has decided to leave town and visit his ear.

Beast

Steve updated the above link with Series VI as well. Love this series.

http://www.actionfigs.com/index.php?categoryid=18&p2_articleid=1621

Ant-Man/Dr. Strange - Yay! More Avengers. Now make Wonder Man and Ms. Marvel.
Gambit / Rogue - Nice set. I love the costume choice for Rogue. And Gambit is cool.
Loki / Lord Thor - I'm glad they chose a real different costume for the new Thor.
Pyro / Iceman - Pyro looks cute. I really like how Iceman turned out in this series.

JediTricks
09-14-2007, 12:48 AM
I don't like Gambit at all, the pose is weird and the jawline's HUGE and the smile's over the top and his eyes are painted wrong.

Everybody else there rules tho'. Can't go wrong with lil' Dr Strange.

Beast
09-14-2007, 05:54 PM
A few more sets are supposedly showing up on Wal-Mart computers.

BEN REILLY/SPIDER-MAN 65356931763
NEW THOR/ARES 65356931765
SPIDER-MAN/HOBGOBLIN 65356931764
WOLVERINE/THE H 65356931766 - (The Hulk, I'd Assume.)

Cool to see Scarlet Spider-Man in the line. Hopefully we get a 616 Green Goblin soon also, since they're doing Hobgoblin already. And please, for the love of god Hasbro... do the Spider-Man figures in different costume variants.

Ares adds another Mighty Avenger to the set. And the new Thor costume is popular, given it's also getting a figure in the Marvel Select line. Hopefully the Wolverine and Hulk is First Appearance Wolverine. Another Hulk though, feh.

http://i.marvelousnews.com/g/?mode=album&album=2007_SDCC%2FHasbro%2FSHS
Finally got some possible information about this. It's apperantly going to be the 2nd Superhero Squad Collector's Pack. At least going by the Product Description that Hasbro sent to Amazon.Com about the 1st Collector's Pack.

Collectible box features eight original stylized character figures. With a lid and a handle, this fun crew of super heroes can easily be toted for play of sit on a shelf for display! Includes Silver Surfer, Spider-Man, Juggernaut, Shadowcat, Professor X, Cyclops, Wolverine and Iceman figures. Spring into adventure with the world's greatest collection of Super Heroes. The mightiest Marvel heroes are ready to save the day with their amazing abilities and super powers. Join the battle with the Marvel Super Hero Squad!
Very interesting that the 2nd Boxset is going to feature so many new figures. Especially when the 1st Boxset was all repaints. It looks like...

Professor X, Shadowcat, and Cyclops - All New.
First Appearance Iceman - Retooled (Boots Sculpted On.)
Silver Surfer, Juggernaut, Spider-Man, Wolverine - Repaints.

ActionFigs.Com posted new pics of the Spider-Man Sand Pit Stand-Off Boxset.

http://www.actionfigs.com/index.php?categoryid=18&p2_articleid=1635

Like was shown at SDCC, the boxset is just a repackaging of several Series I figures.

Spider-Man - From the Spider-Man/Green Goblin Pack
New Goblin
Sandman
Venom

The only so-called "New" figure in the set is the Black Costume Spider-Man from the Spider-Man/Sandman pack, this time done in black chrome.

Hmm? Because he didn't have the Black Costume anymore at this point in the movie?

Or just annoyed at having to buy the whole set to get the "New" figure?

By the way... finally found the Superhero Squad Collector's Pack at Meijers. Really nice set, well worth the $19.99. All of the repaint are perfect ideas, save the Hulk. I can't believe that Toys R Us has the nerve to try to charge $29.99 for it. :rolleyes:

I found all the new Spider-Man Wave 4 figures at a Target in Grafton, WI while I was on my way to Green Bay last weekend and they're pretty good. I just wish the repainted black venom had white eyes and venom symbol because that dark gray color hardly shows up. Also, the Spider-Man figures in this wave are better quality versions of the figure from the playset and one of the vehicle sets.

The only ones I'm missing now are the regular Marvel Super Hero Squad Wave 4 figures. I've been to Targets, Wal-Marts, and TRUs all over the place since the first sightings and I can't find them anywhere...

Welcome to the site, Cash. Nice to see another fan of Superhero Squad around here.

Yeah, Superhero Squad Wave 4 seems to be a bit of a bugger to get. I'm still missing Nightcrawler/Juggernaut myself. Hopefully I can snag him soon.

The Apocalypse/Flocked Beast and Ultimate Giant Man/Ultimate Iron Man Mega-Packs went up for sale at Hasbro Toy Shop the other day, but quickly sold out. So they should be showing up in stores soon. Hopefully. Heh. :)

Thanks for the welcome btw.

Found all three of the new Spider-Man Superhero Squad sets today.

Spider-Man/Black Cat - As Cash said, the Spider-Man from the set is the same one from the Battle Truck vehicle. So at least I can skip buying that thing. Hopefully they'll recard the other one as well. Black Cat is a really nice figure though. Sadly the best looking Black Cat figure yet. She's lithe like Wasp, but can stand better cause of a better design. She has two points of articulation, her arms.

Spider-Man/Mysterio -This is the Spider-Man from the Bank Heist Playset. So I guess I only need the Shirtless/Green Coated Doc Ock from that set. Mysterio's a great little figure, for a guy with a fishbowl on his head. He has three points of articulation (Waist and Arms), that are sadly hindered a bit by his cape. But still, great figure.

Venom/Puma - Like Cash said, I wish they would have released the Venom that's shown on the back of the cards. I'm sure we'll see it eventually though. Otherwise, it's a decent repaint of the movie Venom. Puma's the star of the set though. Nice detail on the fur. Even though he only has 2 points of articulation, his arms.

The new Hasbro Superhero Squad Wallpaper they put up makes me hopeful that they retool/repaint the Sentinel and re-issue him again later on. Maybe with a different pack-in. Because I love the brighter 'Classic' Sentinels they have featured. :)

Actually, the paint scheme on those sentinels does look pretty cool. The way they have them displayed with all these other upcoming figures makes me think we might see these somewhere down the line. I wonder how they're going to repackage those or if they even have plans to release them at all...

How did you find this wallpaper, btw? I could only find Marvel Legends Wallpapers on the hasbro site.

It looks like the new upper chest design is actually just a new piece, placed over the old chest piece. And then of course being held on by the new head. No clue otherwise, though I'll certainly be including that in my next Q&A questions to Hasbro.

Someone else found it, and I just thought I'd pass it on. So I'm not sure. :D

Hobgoblin was showing up on Wal-Mart Computers packaged with Spider-Man.

From a few pages back:


BEN REILLY/SPIDER-MAN 65356931763
NEW THOR/ARES 65356931765
SPIDER-MAN/HOBGOBLIN 65356931764
WOLVERINE/THE H 65356931766 - (The Hulk, I'd Assume.)
Wave 4 is being something of a pain to get here also. I still need to find Nightcrawler/Juggernaut. Thankfully they'll be including that set and Phoenix/Wolverine in the next case Assortment. Doesn't help with those still looking for Beast/Iceman or Thing/Mole Man. Hopefully Hasbro Toy Shop will restock soon.

Oh, and the Spider-Man Sand Pit 5-Pack that was mentioned a few pages ago is now showing up at Wal-Mart stores. Even though the packaging clearly is marked 'Toys R Us Exclusive'. So maybe they passed on it at the the last minute, and Wal-Mart picked them up instead. No clue otherwise. Some Wal-Marts are putting a Wal-Mart sticker over the label, some are leaving it as is. Happy Hunting! :)

They've already made The Punisher, who kills people. And there's Deadpool as well, who doesn't follow the usual Hero rules. The Hood wouldn't surprise me.

Especially since they're mining current stories, what with New Thor and Ares.

I'm thinking "The H" is going to be another Hulk figure after all just based on some of the new character art from the new site (http://www.hasbro.com/marvel/superherosquad/) (tattered shirt and shorts).

Also, I'm getting a lot of insight into possible new figures from the "Games and Activities (http://hasbro.com/marvel/superherosquad/default.cfm?page=Entertainment/games)" section of the new site.

New Comic Book Style Doc Ock:
http://img139.imageshack.us/img139/5955/docock2az5.png

The SHS game uses images of actual figures for the heroes and villains and this new Doc Ock figure was among them. It goes along with the comic book style Doc Ock character art we've seen both on this site and on the Collector's Pack packaging.

Speaking of character art, the puzzles section has 3 interesting images for their puzzles...

The first has Iron Man fighting some kind of dragon thing that I'm not familiar with (anyone?). Possible new Mega Pack.

The second has AXM Cyclops and Wolverine without his mask fighting those new Sentinels from that wallpaper Beast posted a while ago.

The third is the most interesting. It features art for the new doc ock figure I posted, the new hulk artwork from the main page, what seems to be a comic book version of black spidey and another female character I'm not familiar with (again, anyone?) that would be a completely new figure.

That Hulk is likely coming with the Spider-Woman that's also pictured.

That's Fin Fang Foom. And he's likely for a Mega Pack next year.

The second has AXM Cyclops and Wolverine without his mask fighting those new Sentinels from that wallpaper Beast posted a while ago.
The AXM Cyclops is coming in the next Collector's Pack that was mentioned a while ago. Which will also contain the Xavier from the desktop image. Which only gives me more hope that they will release that modified/repainted Sentinel.

The third is the most interesting. It features art for the new doc ock figure I posted, the new hulk artwork from the main page, what seems to be a comic book version of black spidey and another female character I'm not familiar with (again, anyone?) that would be a completely new figure.
That's Spider-Woman. She's coming with a new Hulk late this year or next. The one you noted earlier. And a Comic Black Costume Spider-Man is listed as coming with a Comic Doc Ock around the same time. Can't wait for Toy Fair. :)

Anyway, what did you guys think about the pic of the new Doc Ock figure? I really dig the comic book version and the way he supports himself with his tentacles. Very cool...

Where did the listings from those unknown releases come from. Did they all come from the Wal-Mart computer system?

I hope that's how he looks when he's released. At least we're getting close to having most of the major Spidey villains represented. Including some obscure ones, like Puma. Now we need Electro, Shocker, The Spot, Man-Wolf, etc.

Where did the listings from those unknown releases come from. Did they all come from the Wal-Mart computer system?
Yep. Of course, things can change before final release. After all, the Venom/Puma pack changed twice. It was originally Spider-Man/Puma. And then there was a different 'New' version of Venom, before we got the straight repaint.

11-13-2007, 01:00 AM
^.^ - What did that even have to do with this thread? :confused:

Anyway, thought I'd toss a mini-review up of Apocalypse and Ult. Giant Man.

Apocalypse w/ Fuzzy Beast Mega-Pack (Wave 2):

While the Sentinel is my favorite Mega-Pack so far, Apocalypse is a close second. He's shorter than the other Mega-Packs, but this is more due to his hunched posture. The sculpt is fairly comic accurate, though like all the SHS figures Apocalypse has a goofy smile on his face. A huge improvement has been made to the series 2 Mega-Packs, the addition of ball jointed shoulders. It's slightly hindered on Apocalypse however, due to his shoulder armor. En Sabah Nur has a total of 8 points of articulation. His Head, Ball-Jointed Shoulders, Wrists, and Waist. A great figure.

Beast himself is great. Though Archangel/Death would have made more sense. Hopefully we'll see him with a normal sized Apocalypse. Hank's the same figure as the one from the basic 2-Pack with Iceman from SHS Wave 4. This time though, he's been flocked and now has a fun fuzzy appearance and feel. Not to mention his eyes are much improved, and arn't the huge anime versions they were on the first version. All around, a better figure. He has the same 3 POA. His Waist and Arms.

Ultimate Giant Man w/ Ultimate Iron Man Mega-Pack (Wave 2):

A lot of people have been complaining about Ultimate characters showing up in this line. Honestly, I don't have any major complaints. Especially when we're talking about characters that have multiple versions that can be made. That said, I hope they don't go overboard here just to avoid a lot of complaining. One or two sets mixed in with the normal stuff is the best idea. Especially when kids will be familiar with the costumes and versions of the characters from Ultimate Avengers.

Ultimate Giant Man like Apocalypse also features the new added articulation at the shoulders. Thankfully here it's not hampered by the shoulders. He's accurate to his Ultimate appearance, though that's something of a detracting point considering the Ultimate costume is pretty boring. Kids who liked Ultimate Avengers will be happy with both figures. Though hopefully we'll get a 616 Giant Man in the next year of two. Hank Pym has 7 POA. His head, Ball-Jointed Shoulders, and Legs. The legs are pretty pointless, so it's a shame they weren't left off for wrist articulation instead.

Ultimate Iron Man is the first totally new figure included in the Mega-Packs so far. He's also a pretty good figure, and makes up for the boring design of Ultimate Pym's outfit. He's accurate to his comic look in both apperance and color, and is probably the best Iron Man figure in the line so far. We'll see what next year has in store with the Iron Man movie. Ultimate Iron Man has 4 POA. His Head, Arms, and Waist.

I looked on the back and what was weird was the venom & puma picture had a completely different completely cooler looking venom than the 2-pack actually has!

Captain America, Hulk, and two different Spider-Mans. Cool for the carded collectors.

http://marvelousnews.com/index.php?catid=23&itemid=11228

Also, in regard to the Venom pictured on the cards originally for the Venom/Puma Pack. In the latest Hasbro Podcast with Marvelousnews, they noted that it was dropped due to being out of scale for the line. Since Venom is a larger character. Hopefully they'll retool him larger for release next year. :)

11-28-2007, 04:06 PM
It looks like they're all re-releases, though I think it is remotely possible that Easter Hulk has a little bit of a more pastel paint scheme than the original version. Probably just the lighting in the photo though... I don't keep mine carded so it looks like I won't have to pick these up.

I finally got all of wave 4 today (I've been waiting for months) along with all of waves 5 and 6 from Hasbro! There are a lot of excellent figures in these waves. I'm really excited about this line as it just seems to keep getting better and better.

Anyone interested in the newest Spidey wave should keep their eyes open at their local Wal-Mart. I found the new Spidey/Vulture and Venom/Sandman 2 packs there yesterday. They were with a bunch of other spidey 2-packs from various waves in holiday style display boxes. Each holiday box (there were 2) had (among other figures) one Spidey/Vulture and two Venom/Sandman packs. The two boxes on display were identical in terms of figure content and neither of them had Kraven...

Also, I'm wondering what Astonishing Cyclops being carded with Sentinel 2.0 means for the second collector's pack... Will we be seeing Kitty and the professor turn up somewhere else perhaps?

In any case, it looks like the 2008 packaging will be blue for the regular marvel line if those pics mean anything...

Beast
12-05-2007, 10:41 AM
Yeah, it seems the new Wal-Mart holiday cases are a mis-mash of various waves. And also have a lot of Logan/Bike sets. And that the SHS one is missing Gambit/Rogue and the Spider-Man one is missing Spidey/Kraven. Sorta sucks, which means we have to wait for regular cases to trickle into the stores for them to show up.

I think we'll likely still see Cyclops in the second collectors pack. Maybe they'll give him a different head or something. A hoodless version would be great. Similar to the maskless version of Wolverine from the first Sentinel Mega-Pack.

I really like the more 'Fun' kid-friendly looking blue packaging for 2008. I hope the fact they're doing 4-Packs doesn't mean that's what the new format for the line is going to be however. I liked the 2-Packs that we've been getting. At least with the X-Men set we're getting something new. The Spidey set is all repaints.

The Spider-Man line didn't really do that badly. Especially the later "Comic" packs.

Plus much like with Fantastic Four, they're going with a Comic Line with the movie.

Hopefully they'll do the same thing with the Incredible Hulk movie as well. Pretty likely, given that there's a Hulkbuster Iron Man in the Iron Man wave.

So I'm curious. I've found three different Walmarts with the newest Spider-Man wave, but each time.....no Kraven/Spidey. Vulture/Spidey and Venom/Sandman all over the place, but no sign of Kraven. Has anyone actually found Kraven on the shelves yet?

Beast
12-18-2007, 05:29 PM
Wish I could find the newest Spider-Man wave around here. I need those 3.

And no, Kraven isn't shipping yet. What you're seeing is the Wal-Mart Holiday End Cap displays for Spider-Man Superhero Squad. They're a mix of various previous waves. It contains Spidey/Vulture and Venom/Sandman, but no Spidey/Kraven. We probably won't see Spidey/Kraven until the regular cases start showing up.

Same thing is happening with the regular Superhero Squad. The Holiday End Cap displays contain a bunch of figures, including refreshes of some HTF ones, such as Phoenix/Wolverine, Nightcrawler/Juggernaut, and Mole Man/Thing. Sadly no Beast/Iceman.

Oh, I know. They showed up in the regular cases. But they weren't included in the End Cap/Refresher Cases. Likely because they packaged Fuzzy Beast w/ Apocalypse and a new Iceman with Pyro. But I still want an extra pack of the original version.

Here's the thing about the Iceman/Beast set dropping off the map: While I might think it's cool to have a Bobbby Drake figure (I'm 33 for the record), my son thinks of that figure as "The Guy," not as Iceman (he's 3). He has the same opinion of the Johnny Storm versions of the Human Torch.

I really hope Hasbro keeps their eye on the ball and remembers that these lines (GH/SHS/RH) are for kids, not collectors. Collectors should really be a secondary consideration regarding these lines.

Welcome to the 'Addicts to Superhero Squad Club', Skystreak. Are you getting them just for your son, or are you enjoying them also? And don't worry about being 33. I'm 31 by the way. And I love these bloody things. Hell, I'm handling a checklist after all. Yeah, I see your point about how kids see the de-iced and de-flamed Bobby and Johnny figures. Not to mention I prefer the fully iced Bobby and flaming Johnny.

Well, Entertainment Earth has Wave 4 shipping again in Jan '08. So it looks like Hasbro's going to try to get some of the HTF ones out there during the dead time of retail between X-Mas and Toy Fair. Plus I'm sure much like Star Wars ones, we'll see older sets rotated through on occasion. Or at least repacks like the TRU exclusives. And there's a retooled/repaint of the Iceman in the next Collectors Pack.

you guys are lucky.

the only super hero squad stuff we get here in the uk (in regular toy shops) is some of the older spidey waves (and a few galactic heroes and robot heroes).

it's not cool. And getting the x-men and marvel ones costs a fortune.

my only real source is getting my aunt (who lives in florida) to find them and send them over.

pretty much mate. Postage is getting more expensive though.
when i bought a set here it cost me 6.99. Thats about $13-14.
U guys get them in wal-mart for $6 or so (3).

the spidey ones are cheaper, but still alot more than u pay.

I'm lucky, as my aunt lives in florida so she gets hold of some of the stuff for me. But i have no figures past wave3.

just hoping the iron man and indiana jones adventure heroes are widely available here. :whip:

Yeah, I started to get worried that they wouldn't re-release the original beast/iceman figures so I caved and had to pay a lot of money for them from a third party online source before the price went up even higher. I hope for your sake that Hasbro re-releases wave 4 in January, but unless that happens good luck finding them at anywhere near a decent price :).

You guys are welcome. I just wish we'd get some early news for '08. Looks like we'll have to wait for Toy Fair for any big updates though. Though maybe we'll get some updates on what we've already seen (Fin Fang Foom, etc.) before then.

Also, found Spidey/Vulture and Sandman/Venom at Wal-Mart today. And came home to Gambit/Rogue waiting for me. So other than the elusive Kraven who I don't think is shipping as of yet, I'm caught up thanks to Hasbro Toy Shop and Wal-Mart.

Hello everyone. I would also like to thank Beast for all his information. I too have all of the superhero squad's except for Kraven. Its amazing how into these things my 3 year old son is. i have all of them set up on my computer desk and everyday he makes me go over the names with him. He amazingly knows all but three. He even knows the real names of the duplicates (ex. he says Iceman then Bobby Drake) . Well anyway I was wondering if anyone has heard of when we could be seeing the collectors pack with Professor X and Shadowcat. I saw some pics of them a while back, but have not heard when to expect them. Thanks

I have no clue when the new Collectors Pack is going to hit. One of Hasbro's recent podcasts with Marvelous News said it would be out before the end of the year. That doesn't appear to be the case anymore. So I'm not sure what's up with it. I hope it hits soon. I've been wanting the new and repaint figures for my displays.

I went to my local Wal-Mart today and I was shocked to see that Marvel Super Hero Squad and Spider-Man Super Hero Squad were both on Clearance!... I have no idea if this is just some Wal-Marts or all of them chain-wide, but it seriously worries me about the future of this line if the biggest retailer isn't going to be carrying them anymore... :(

Or maybe they're just making room for the new ones because they have different packaging? I'm not sure either way, but anyone looking to get a few figures for a little bit cheaper might want to check it out just in case SHS goes clearance at a store near you...

Beast
12-27-2007, 12:33 PM
There's nothing to worry about. SHS is a big success. Most stores have clearance sales right after Christmas, because people are coming in with Gift Cards. It's an insentive for people to buy more, for a couple reasons. There's really three reasons for these clearance sales. None of them are really due to poor sales.

Stores are trying to sell out as much taxable product as possible before January 1st, so they don't have to pay taxes on the inventory. So it's primarily that, in addition to clearing out old backstock so they have shelf space for the new stuff that will be coming in. As well as having empty shelves makes resetting the aisles easier.

JediTricks
12-27-2007, 05:02 PM
WM clearances generally aren't chain-wide, they do clearance differently, the managers have a weekly "clearance budget" and can put that against ANY toy they have in store, it's up to them what gets clearanced and for how much off. I once got a brand-new-release Justice League Superman 10" figure that every other store and chain had for $25 for just $4.88 even though it was the first time I had seen it on shelves because the manager decided it had to go for some reason.

The upcoming FFF/Iron Man Mega-Pack turned up on Ebay. And the guy selling it was kind enough to take a picture of the back. So we finally have pics of the upcoming Hulk/Spider-Woman and Symbiote Spider-Man/Doc Ock sets. Can't wait.

Also, apperantly the new 4-Packs are shipping. And they come with a poster that shows some pics of the new stuff that we've heard about from Wal-Mart's computer systems. So hopefully we'll have some pics of those soon as well. Here's what's shown on the poster though. Can't wait for 2008. :D

According to Cool Toy Review, there's going to be a Hulk focused line in '08. Makes sense with the movie. Much like we're getting the Iron Man wave in conjunction with that movie. So far it looks like there will be four sets, much like Iron Man.

Hulk & Abomination
Planet Hulk & Silver Savage (Silver Surfer)
World War Hulk & Iron Man

The 4th set will feature Hulk as well, but the other character is undetermined.

Thanks for asking Skystreak! I'm actually looking for these specific packs. I actually managed to score the rest of the waves during the holiday rush, but it appears that the Beast/Iceman were excluded from the line-ups. Gambit and Rogue are just a whole other mess, too.

Venom/Spidey: I feel the same way about this one as I do of DD/Spidey and Wolvie/Psylocke...

I'm not a big fan of the cap/punisher hybrid costume and they should have packaged cable and deadpool together, but other than that, I really dig wave 7. Wave 8 looks like a big disappointment - the only new character is Psylocke (at least this latest attempt at Venom looks good).

Also, it would appear that the Spider-Man line is no more in 2008 and has been essentially merged with the regular SHS line. I wonder if that will make it hard to find Kraven when he finally ships...

beast is right about them being in separate packs. they'll make twice as much money on the two figures.

i'm with rocket boy about the punisher in captain america costume. I'll buy it as he's prob my favourite marvel character, but they could have done it so much better.
Given the sheer number of weapons he's used, they could make loads of variations of him with different guns and even with costumes like his trenchcoat.

I'm also presuming they won't do a line to tie-in with the 2nd punisher movie. Not really kid-friendly viewing content

Why the hell would they do that snigtarded Captain Punisher costume? Why didn't we get all the real heavy hitters first, like Rocket Racoon, Sleepwalker, Stegron, Boom Boom, and Aunt May?

What's the concern about making these kid-friendly? Obviously they're more based on comics that aren't (World War Hulk, Brain-Damaged Punisher Impostor War Journal) than classics that are.

I found the new 4 packs at my local Wal-Mart this morning :shocked:

Thought the following was interesting to note:

1: The back of the X-Men set shows Colossus holding Wolverine and has a yellow box that says "Get Ready For The Fastball Special!" Indeed, the Colossus figure's left hand is shaped in a way that he can Grip onto Wolverine so the actual figures can be posed for this classic move.

2: Despite seemingly being designed from the same concept, the Wolverine sculpt from this set is actually completely different from the one that was packaged with Phoenix in wave 4. From the initial images, I had thought that only the belt was different, but in reality not one part of the wave 4 sculpt was reused.

The head is different and has a different facial expression.
The Torso is more defined and the pivot point at the waist is above the belt rather than below it.
The new figure's arms are bent completely differently which makes for very different poses from wave 4 Wolverine.
The new figure hunches forward a bit more over his bent knee. The right foot comes out much further than the left (whereas the old figure's left foot actually came out quite a bit more than the right)3: Ghost Rider's Flames aren't very transluscent at all. At least not in the two packages sitting on the shelf. It actually almost looks like a botched paint job, but both of the ones I saw appeared to be the same way. Small parts of the flame look like they should be see-through, but not all the way from front to back because all-in-all the flame has a solid non-transluscent orange color. Weird...

4: Speaking of Ghost Rider, they put a lot more effort into painting the silver studs, buckles, and other costume details on his repaint here. Elektra's face is also significantly improved.

5: Each set comes with a different poster (same figures on the back, already posted). One has Iron Man and Fin Fang Foom while the other has the new Sentinel with Cyclops and Wolverine. They're actually pretty big considering the size of the packaging (approx 10" tall and 16" wide).

That's about it. Keep an eye out for 'em. :lipsrsealed:

I just noticed that Entertainment Earth has removed their listing for Spider-Man Wave 5 all-together...

Showdown with Magento- Colossus, Magneto, Emma, Wolverine. All new sculpts

new sets

Attack of Juggernaut- Wolverine, Juggernaut, Nightcrawler, Gambit. all 4 just repaints

Avengers Assemble -Cap, Vision, Marvel, Iron Spider. 3 New Sculpts, metallic Cap

Beast
01-15-2008, 11:50 AM
Like I said elsewhere... Hasbro costs everything out by wave, not by each figure. So they balanced the cost of the 4* new sculpts, by doing 4 repaints in the other set. I think that will likely be common in the other upcoming 4-Pack sets. Which doesn't bug me, as I thought the Spider-Man pack was pretty good for what it was. Not to mention, I love the 'Bamfing' Nightcrawler and corrected Gambit.

* - I'm betting the Cap sculpt was originally created for the boxset. And then was re-used for the pack with Cable. Instead of the other way around.

Jedi_slayer
01-15-2008, 11:55 AM
the changes on the ghost rider are almost non existant. the punishers costume is black instead of the original navy brown. Ive got enough spidermans. The Elektra was pretty nice to have in white though. just need the black uni now.

I too like the bamfing Nightcrawler. but its said that a 'corrected' Gambit has to be considered a repaint.

Beast
01-15-2008, 01:15 PM
Punisher's white gloves, boots, and skull are all gloss white also. As for Ghost Rider, the flames are clear instead of painted. And they detailed the buckles, straps, and such. As for the Spider-Man, it's the comic version at least. We've only gotten two comic versions of Spider-Man. One in the Collector's Pack and one here. :)

Well, there's a few other changes. Such as Gambit's staff and card being 'charged'. ;)

So we can get black Spidey, but not black Punisher?

Why is that?

Entertainment Earth have got loads more super hero squad stuff listed.

according to them, punisher and deadpool will be 3 per box. so hopefully, there will be plenty around and Cap & Cable are 3 per box too.

I dont know if this has been brought up before or not, but I noticed when I was looking at the spiderman bank hiest setup at TRU today, there are two different 'spider-cars'. 2 were red/blue and there was another that was all silver. Is than an exclusive or a short print? is there any difference in demand for it?

According to Cool Toy Review, there's going to be a Hulk focused line in '08. Makes sense with the movie. Much like we're getting the Iron Man wave in conjunction with that movie. So far it looks like there will be four sets, much like Iron Man.

Hulk & Abomination
Planet Hulk & Silver Savage (Silver Surfer)
World War Hulk & Iron Man

The 4th set will feature Hulk as well, but the other character is undetermined.

http://www.cooltoyreview.com/story/front/Hasbro_Whats_Next_For_Super_Hero_Squad_111216.asp
A teeny tiny thumbnail picture of these sets have turned up.
But heck if I can figure out what the 4th set is. :D

Edit: Blew it up a bit. But can't get it much bigger without making it more blurry.

Just wait, he'll show up again. Hasbro won't waste the opportunity to make more money off this sculpt when they can clearly see the desire for it.

I just hope I can get the clear version, but I suspect there will be a "snow" version of it instead.

You CAN get this figure, but I've seen it going for $20+ on eBay. So only if you are willing to pay through the nose for it right now will you get it.

Very cool.



Some thoughts:
Hobgoblin looks a little bit too... friendly. I understand and appreciate the way the line tends to put smiles on the faces of even the worst of villains, but Hobgoblin looks a little bit too cuddley.
Ghost Riders motorcycle is a reworked/repainted version of Wolverine's Weapon X Cycle. I think he looks good on it.
I didn't think I would until I saw it (particularly since I'm not too fond of Ares), but I'm looking forward to the Thor/Ares 2 pack. I like the sculpting on both figures and Thor's new costume is made of awesome and win.
I don't know what this is from, but it looks awesome: http://tf08.superherotimes.com/showphoto.php?photo=214
Carnage was a nice surprise. I thought we would be getting yet another Spider-Man with Ben Reilly.
On that note, Was anybody else expecting Ben Reilly's other costume? I'm a little disappointed, even though both are pretty cool.
No Iron Fist / Luke Cage :(... I can only hope that Shang-Chi comes with Iron Fist...
When it comes to collecting, I'm a completist, so it makes me a little bit angry that the Hulk playset is exactly the same as the Spidey one. It really sucked having to shell out so much for the first one, but to have to do it a second time is aggravating.

I bet the new fantastic four set is the "New Fantastic Four" from the early 90's: Hulk, Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Ghost Rider... Yeah, that era is long gone and we've all got plenty of each of these characters already, but if you think about it, the reason we're getting so many Spidey, Wolverine, and Hulk dupes is because thats what sells best. Hasbro knows that a four pack that has them all together will sell incredibly well.

From my experience, here in Seattle, stocking of new products is totally unpredictable and I'd prefer not to have to go to Target & Toys R Us every couple days to check it out.

There's a variant on the 1st Apperance Iron Man in the sets though.

He's either molded in grey plastic or painted metallic silver. Silver one seems to be harder to find. I saw two sets with the silver, and four sets with the grey ones.

Jargo
04-01-2008, 02:45 PM
y'know, I really love the look of these but I would balk at starting to collect now. way too many of them, where to start, all the variants! Just following links in this thread and collating the pics to see what's there is frightening.
I was never big on comic book heroes but having seen a few of the recent hero movies that basically give a potted summary of some of them i'm kinda having my interest piqued. I've never liked the look of the larger superhero figures, and there's been far too many different people producing different versions in varying styles it would be stupid to even dip a toe into that pool. But these superhero squad figures are something else. and small. I love small.
weirdly i like these a whole lot more than the galactic heroes SW ones. perhaps it's because superheroes are a strange land for me to explore whereas i'm kinda bored of star wars.

shortcat
04-04-2008, 09:06 PM
That's interesting, Jargo. I'm just the opposite. I love the Galactic heroes and am having a hard time getting into the superhero squad. I think its because GH is making 'toons of things that were always live action, whereas SHS is making 'toons of things that were already 'toons to begin with. Does that make sense? Don't get me wrong, I like what they're doing with the line, but I just haven't liked it enough to buy it; with GH I just can't pass the little suckers up! Weird, huh?

Also, we're getting 2 more Mega Packs. Here's pics from the back of the latest 4-Packs. Love the metallic Galactus repaint and the classic Mr. Fantastic. As for Ultimate Hulk vs. Wolverine, the set is great. But it's amusing we're getting a SHS set based on a comic that was never finished and may not be. Heh. :)

The third wave of Spider-Man 3 movie Super-Hero Squad did have a short distribution period due to timing. Some of the figures, like Kraven, may be worked back into future waves of the main line.

Some red paint is smeared inside of the inner plastic casing, and a speck of silver paint is chipped off one of his blades showing red underneath so be careful of that. There are also some smears on his boot and his hand.

Punisher's nose is smeared showing blue/black beneath. Paint job on both looks pretty shoddy, but I'm still happy :D!

Boywithgun found the following on the Wal-Mart computers.

HLK GRAY HLK LEADER 65356933645
HLK 2PK HULK ZZZAX 65356933646
HLK HULK DOC SAMSON 65356933647
HLK HULK SOH 65356922648 --- (Likely Son of Hulk)

The Hulk series must be doing pretty well if they're doing a 3rd wave.

found the entire Hulk series. but left them since i have them all coming from an online retailer

the Indiana Jones figures rae out too. not too bad. and I like that if you buy all six, you can send away for a 7th set. Marvel needs to do something like that

Superhero Squad: The Animated Series! :D

Marvel Animation Powering Up "Marvel Super Hero Squad" For 2009

Marvel Animation has finally released official information on the upcoming Marvel Super Hero Squad.

The Marvel Entertainment division said it is producing 26 half-hour episodes of a new "super stylized" animated series aimed at 6 to 8-year-olds, reports The Hollywood Reporter. The series, called Marvel Super Hero Squad, will feature such well-known heroes as Iron Man, Hulk, Wolverine, Thor, Fantastic Four and Captain America; all occupy a caricatured Super Hero City and are thrust into humorous adventures as they thwart the villainous plans of Doctor Doom, Magneto, Loki, the Abomination and others.

Marvel is in discussions with networks for the distribution of Marvel Super Hero Squad, expected to be available for broadcast in 2009. The company already has two new series, Wolverine and the X-Men and Iron Man: Armored Adventures, set to debut early next year on Nicktoons.

"This initiative is part of an overall strategy to create new brands and maximize exposure for the characters in the Marvel universe by keeping them fresh and relevant for a new audience and to provide a consistent presence in the marketplace," Marvel Entertainment president of animation Eric Rollman said.

Film Roman will provide production services for "Squad."

Marvel also is developing a multimedia and merchandising campaign for the show, with Hasbro handling the toy line. Marvel Comics is introducing a Marvel Super Hero Squad book series in the fall, and a direct-to-video animated feature is in development for 2010.

Looks like we can look forward to a Superhero Squad Video Game also.

Hopefully it's similar to Lego Star Wars. That would kick butt. :)

From Marvelousnews:

THQ and Marvel Enter into Exclusive Licensing Agreement for Video Games Based on Marvel’s Super Hero Squad
by Jay in Marvel at 09:58 AM on 2008.05.08

THQ Inc. and Marvel Entertainment, Inc. announced today that they have entered into an exclusive licensing agreement to create video games based on the burgeoning, kid-friendly Marvel Super Hero Squad franchise. Pursuant to the multi-year agreement, THQ has obtained the exclusive, worldwide rights to publish content for all current and next-generation consoles, handheld systems, as well as Windows PC. The initial Marvel Super Hero Squad game is scheduled for release in fall 2009.

The agreement fits perfectly in both THQ’s and Marvel’s growth strategies. For THQ, the addition of the Marvel brand further strengthens its position as the pre-eminent creator and publisher of kids video games. For Marvel, the relationship with THQ provides a premier interactive entertainment partner for its important Marvel Super Hero Squad franchise, which is designed to be an engaging introduction into the Marvel Universe for young kids.

“Marvel is one of the true crown jewels in the entertainment industry and we are thrilled at the prospect of both building the Marvel Super Hero Squad brand and further developing our relationship with Marvel,” said Brian Farrell, president and CEO, THQ. “We are dedicated to expanding our unmatched success story in the kids space and this agreement with Marvel is an excellent complement to our portfolio.”

Simon Phillips, President, Marvel International and Head of Worldwide Animation and Video Games, added, “Licensing of the Marvel Super Hero Squad brand is a priority for Marvel, as we see it as a great entry point for kids to experience our renowned characters. We are making a strong commitment to the brand across toys, television and other media and consumer product channels and developing Marvel Super Hero Squad as a video game will play an important role in the development of this brand. The platform is an incredibly powerful medium that enables kids to experience the excitement of our franchises, as well as extend our characters and storylines. With THQ, we are confident we have a partner with a best in class pedigree of building and extending licensed kid-friendly brands in the interactive space.”

An all-new Marvel brand, Marvel Super Hero Squad features an exciting, super-stylized look of the greatest Marvel Super Heroes, serving to expand the traditional Marvel audience to a core 4-10 year-old audience. Fun and humor are waiting around every corner in Marvel Super Hero Squad where popular characters including Iron-Man, Hulk, Spider-Man, Captain America, Wolverine, Thor, The Fantastic Four, and many more are thrust into adventures in a single caricatured Super Hero City. Along the way, they will have to thwart the plans of popular Marvel villains Doctor Doom, Magneto, Iron Monger, Loki, the Abomination and countless other infamous baddies.

Marvel is launching a major multi-media campaign for the brand. Marvel Animation is currently in production on an animated television series that is expected to debut on air in 2009. Additionally, Marvel Comics is now featuring Marvel Super Hero Squad comic strips within several of its all ages books and will be introducing a dedicated Marvel Super Hero Squad comic book series in fall 2008. Marvel has already secured deals with Hasbro as master toy partner, Disguise/Cesar for dress-up and Mega Bloks for construction toys and continues to seek deals with industry leading partners to develop merchandise based on the unique look of the Marvel Super Hero Squad property.

Remember the good old days, when Marvel made comics for kids, rather than making everything else for kids and making comics for teenagers?

They still make comics for kids.

The Marvel Adventures line. X-Men: First Class, Wolverine: First Class.

And frankly I don't see where the comics are really all that different than the were back then. It's more they're trying to keep in touch with the times.The world is a more serious place, and comics have only followed suit. Especially when the primary readership has more or less grown up with the comics and are still reading.

Comics aren't really "for kids" if they're only available at specialty retailers and not at stores where parents will be willing to take them. Put books like Marvel Adventures back in malls and grocery stores, and then they're "for kids."

I'm not touching the "the world is a more serious place" argument, because it's so full of holes my comments would drip out the sides.

Vulture got a very limited release in Wal-Mart endcap displays during Holiday 2007.

Kraven was never released, as far as anyone can tell.
