So the next wave of 2-packs isnt coming out till 2011 so I doubt they'll be any new 2-packs on display at this year's SDCC (thats just a guess) They also claim they are gonna make an announcement soon on the 6" line which effectively means bye bye 6" which unless you are an ignoramus, we knew that was their plan all along.

I am going to disagree with you there, the use of the word plans is slightly too positive a term to use if they were just going to cancel them.

Maybe so but the last time they had "plans" for the line they switched to 2-pax and only bought them out once a year this is why I am sceptical with their use of the word "plans" here.

I pray im wrong and do something on the Mattel side of things

TBH I suspect when they say plans they may mean store exclusives the IM2 6"ers did rather well so that may have prompted them to re-evaluate the market or they could go down the direct to consumer route like mattel.

Oh just thinking about what you said, do you reckon they'll delay the release to maybe coincide with a more frequent release of waves for 2011?

Possibly, we won't know anything until SDCC.

Yeah since the IM2 figures did so well at Wal-Mart, I'm assuming they're working out a deal to make the 6" ML line exclusive to them.

It makes sense. They're not moving at TRU. At my store the latest waves (Dum Dum Dugan, Stealth IM & Invisible Woman) are still sitting on a bottom shelf.

Maybe they'll announce that they'll finally release the ML Crimson Dynamo & Titanium Man two-pack that everyone has been asking for for months.

I took this from Marvelous news I've emboldened the good stuff Very Happy

Quote :
Iron Man Legends will have a 6" Crimson Dynamo, Titanium Man, Hulkbuster Iron Man and more and they will be available everywhere, not an exclusive.

Series 3 MU will have the cardart by Olivier Coipel.

Look for figures of Apoc, Jim Lee Cyclops with new sculpt.

New Sentinels coming for next Masterwork Series coming out next year. The one with classic colors will be next year's SDCC exclusive and the other one will be released at general retail.

Hasbro says Marvel Legends 6" figures will return in full force for 2012. They have been listening.

CORRECTION: The ML 2-packs are a TRU exclusive, and they're scheduled for an October release

It will return in full force in 2012 (yay I win) in the mean time there's an Iron man legends line which with the exception of Titanium man & Crimson Dynamo is comprised of repaints of figures from the first film

well it took them about a year to improve the MU quality, so let's hope between now & then we can get some decent ML's.
