Although the kid-friendly, low-priced Marvel Titan Hero Series 12″ figures are not exactly the cup of tea of most adult collectors, the line has continued to prove successful, and Hasbro has really upped their game with recent electronic releases in the series (including last year’s awesome Civil War Falcon). And this year, it’s Star-Lord’s turn to get the deluxe electronic treatment! The 12″ Music Mix Star-Lord figure is now available for about 20 bucks shipped–and while he won’t be for everyone, I think he’s pretty rockin’ (for a Titan Hero)…Continue Reading →
I hope everyone got everything they wanted for the holidays–because now it’s time to start looking ahead to next year! Today we’re looking at one of Hasbro’s best-selling lines. No, not Marvel Legends–Marvel Titan Hero 12″ figures! The Marvel Titan Heroes 2017 figures will include a ton of new additions collectors will be excited about, including Carnage, Anti-Venom, Loki, Shocker, Drax and more!Continue Reading →
Earlier this month we got our first gander at the first wave of 2017 Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy 6″ figures (including the Angela figure two years in the making!). But the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 movie is a pretty big deal, and that means Hasbro has a lot more in store for the franchise than six inch collector figures! And among the offerings are an extension of a niche line with more collectors than you might expect: the Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Titan Hero 2017 12″ figures!Continue Reading →
As much faith as I have in most of Hasbro’s Marvel toy lines, if there’s one Hasbro Marvel action figure line I wouldn’t buy based solely off the official photos, it’s the Titan Hero Series. So even though the Civil War Titan Hero Falcon and War Machine figures went up for order online a few days ago, there was no way I was picking them up without seeing them in person. But to my delight, I saw both 12″ figures locally today–and they may be the best Titan Heroes ever!Continue Reading →
For a long time, I legitimately thought I was the only adult collector out there keeping tabs on the Hasbro Marvel Titan Hero figure line.
But I learned last year that there’s actually a thriving fandom for the line, so while I was at the Hasbro showroom at New York Toy Fair 2016, I made sure to take some hi-res photos of Hasbro’s multi-tiered display of all this year’s 12″ Titan Hero figures–including Crossbones and more!Continue Reading →
Yesterday I talked about the first wave being released for what’s arguably the single most popular line of Marvel action figures with collectors: Marvel Legends.
So today, let’s turn that upside-down with a line of Marvel toys that are super-popular with kids and casual fans, but uh, “less so” with many collectors. The first 2016 Marvel Titan Heroes figures have been released–including Black Widow, Black Panther, Sandman and more!Continue Reading →
The Hasbro Marvel Titan Hero series of value-priced figures got off to a roaring start in 2015, releasing loads of electronic figures, new characters and even characters from the Avengers: Age of Ultron movie. The second half of the year has been a mite slow for the Titan Heroes range, however, with very few new toys hitting shelves (although the Titan Hero Vision is finally getting into decent circulation and Black Widow is rumored). But finally one more big release for 2015 has arrived–and I do mean big! It’s the mega-sized, 18″ Hulkbuster Armor Titan Hero!Continue Reading →
From Marvel Select to Marvel Legends to Marvel Minimates and Marvel Infinite Series, we’re getting mini figures of Ant-Man all over the place in celebration of the upcoming Ant-Man movie!
But maybe what you’ve been waiting for isn’t a little figure of Ant-Man… but a big one! And if so, Hasbro has just the low-priced action figure for you: the 12″ Marvel Titan Hero Ant-Man figure has now been released in stores!Continue Reading →
Sometimes there’s a huge intersection between what kids love and what hardcore collectors love… and sometimes there isn’t. While the Marvel Titan Hero line has saleswise been a spectacular success with the masses, the line hasn’t exactly been lovingly embraced by adult collectors. But last week I got a pair of more collector-oriented exclusive Titan Hero figures from Entertainment Earth, and this duo just may earn older collectors’ attention: it’s the Titan Hero Iron Legion & Ultimate Hawkeye figures!Continue Reading →
Ever since toy manufacturers began revealing the lineups for their Avengers: Age of Ultron toys, collectors have been complaining about the lack of Scarlet Witch, Vision and Quicksilver figures. We’re getting LEGO and Minimates versions of all three, as well as comics-based Marvel Legends Vision and Scarlet Witch figures. Quicksilver has really gotten the bum’s rush, however. But now you can rejoice, collectors–because Hasbro has finally released the Quicksilver action figure we’ve all been waiting for: the Titan Hero Quicksilver figure has now been released!Continue Reading →
The New York Toy Fair 2015 isn’t for another month, but it seems that the Hasbro Avengers: Age of Ultron toys just couldn’t wait that long to make their grandiose debut! Of course, it’s not the Marvel Legends figures that everyone’s been waiting for that leaked out onto store shelves early. No, it’s a slightly less beloved line–the Avengers Age of Ultron Titan Hero Series! But while these Avengers AOU Titan Hero Tech figures will absolutely not be for everyone, they do give us our very first look at a Hasbro Hulkbuster Iron Man figure…Continue Reading →
If anyone had ever wanted to bet me that I’d be writing four articles about Hasbro Marvel Titan Hero figures in a one-week span, I’d be paying up right now. I promised myself that I’m not buying any of these 12″ figures and I’m sticking to it, but it’s getting a bit more difficult when Hasbro keeps bringing out obscure favorites. And the latest carrot? One of the most dopey and lovable Spider-Man costumes ever–the 12″ Spider-Armor Spider-Man Titan Hero figure!Continue Reading →
