NYCC 2011: Marvel Cosmic Hasbro Line Coming Soon (Quasar)


I was walking by the Hasbro Booth (which was awesome!) at the New York Comic Con, and on display were tons of figures including the Marvel Universe 3.75" figures of Beta Ray Bill, Thanos, Adam Warlock, and Captain Marvel!

I spoke to a Hasbro Rep and mentioned how difficult it was to find the Walmart Exclusive Nova Marvel Legends figure from a couple years ago. I also told him there is no Quasar figure, as well!

With a big grin on his face, he mentioned that next year I should be a happy person.

I pressed him for more details, and told him I talked to Joe Quesada about Nova returning in April, that there are all these great Cosmic characters - but, again, he couldn't specifically state anything.

He said he liked Quasar, as well, and I recommended an Annihilation action figure line, to which he said - again, that I should be a happy person come this time next year.

While I can't say for "certain" that we are getting a Quasar figure, or more of a Marvel Cosmic line, it seems to be so.

Can't wait for a cool Quasar fig!

Also, look for an interview with the lead designer on the Hasbro Marvel action figures line soon on Cosmic Book News!
