2017 Marvel Titan Hero Figures! Carnage! Loki! Drax! Shocker!

I hope that everyone got everything they wanted for the holidays this year–because now it’s time to start looking ahead to next year once again! Today we’re going to be looking at one of Hasbro’s absolute best-selling lines of toys. No, not Marvel Legends–we’ll talk about those plenty in the coming weeks and months–Marvel Titan Hero 12″ figures! Just like last year, the Marvel Titan Heroes 2017 figures will include a ton of new additions Titan Hero collectors will be excited about, including Carnage, Anti-Venom, Loki, The Shocker, Drax and more!

It was just a couple weeks ago that I was lamenting the injustice of the fact that the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 movie toys rollout seemed to include all of the members of the GOTG (including Yondu) as 12″ Titan Hero figures except for Drax the Destroyer.

Well, it seems I had spoken a few days too soon, as the first-ever Titan Hero Drax figure is arriving fashionably late as part of a six-figure Guardians of the Galaxy box set this winter!

Like the rest of the team, the Hasbro 12″ Drax figure is based off the Guardians of the Galaxy animated series and looking pretty dang accurate to his appearance on that show, if I do say so myself!

A 12″ Carnage figure is long overdue, and it’s no surprise to see Vulture and Shocker (with versions of both appearing in the Spider-Man Homecoming movie) or Anti-Venom (given the enormous popularity of symbiotes).

While a movie-based Iron Man 3 Iron Patriot was one of the earliest figures Hasbro released in this style, Iron Patriot will finally return in an animated style this winter as an addition to the Avengers lineup.

And finally, one of the most notable holes in the Titan Hero collection will at long last be filled when Hasbro releases their inaugural 12″ Loki figure!

With Loki being heavily featured in three MCU movies (including being the main villain of the first Avengers movie, for grife’s sake), it’s pretty absurd that he’s never gotten his own Titan Hero until now. Thankfully, this omission will be rectified with glorious purpose in 2017. Thanks, Hasbro!

Has anyone jumped on (or off) the Titan bandwagon in the past year, and what characters are you hoping to see added to the series over the course of the next year?

  1. TITAN HEROES SCARLET SPIDER WOOOOOOO

    I don’t care if I’m not the target dem for Titan Heroes and I don’t like them, I’m ALWAYS here for Ben Reilly love.

  2. Dabid, I know covering such “lesser” toys as Titan Heroes must be the bane of your existence – but a lot of us appreciate the love! Thanks!

  3. I thought that Shocker was Iron Man initially. Glad that he and Agent Venom are getting more action figure exposure. I also don’t like the Vulture design in the show and prefer the old man or the upcoming (Homecoming?) film version. The three symbiote characters all appeared in a three-part Ultimate Spider-Man episode a while ago, and this set is heavily capitalizing on that. Good for them, I guess.
