Toy Fair 2016: Marvel Titan Hero Figures Photos! Crossbones! 

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!

The first thing that caught my eye when I walked into the 2016 Toy Fair Hasbro Marvel booth wasn’t Marvel Legends (there was already a mob of press obscuring those)–it was a huge three-tier display of Marvel Titan Hero 12″ figures!

Most of the figures are ones that we’ve seen before (though not all have shown up yet in the United States), but I didn’t want to risk missing anything, so I went ahead and took hi-res photos of them all!

I know that Sandman was released a few months ago internationally and has now started to pop up in the United States, but I haven’t seen or heard any domestic reports of Rhino or Doctor Octopus showing up in stores just yet.

For a $10 Titan Hero figure, the Rhino looks surprisingly great! Has anyone spotted Rhino at retail yet?

2016 Toy Fair Hasbro Titan Hero Spider-Man Action FigureThere was also a weird Spider-Man on display that apparently has some “metal” bits. I’m not sure precisely what iteration of Spidey this is meant to be, honestly, but it’s always nice to get new versions of Spider-Man himself.

All of this year’s previously-announced Titan Hero figures were also on display in the Hasbro showroom, including the hyped Black Widow, as well as Black Panther, Winter Soldier, Ant-Man and more.

There were no placards or presentations giving further information on the 2016 12″ Marvel Titan Heroes action figures at the Toy Fair, but this tends to be a pretty simple line to track down and collect in retail stores.

If anyone has any questions on what was shown at Toy Fair, go ahead and leave a comment and let me know and I’ll do my best to answer, but there was very little actual information on the line at the event.

What do you think of this year’s range of Titan Heroes toys, Marvel collectors? Are you impressed with the expanding breadth of the lineup, or were you hoping to see more new characters debut at New York Toy Fair 2016?

  1. Thanks for the great photos Dabid!

    The only figures here I wasn’t previously aware of (or already own) are the armored Spider-Man and Spider-Knight. I’m not thrilled about either of them, but they do have the new joints which allow for more dynamic spider-poses. That’s a good thing!

    A lot of these are already in stores, and a few are due to be released here very shortly. I’ve had my Crossbones for a little over two months now and it’s a great figure. I just wish it came with a rifle or something!

    Also, note the new “Hulk-sized” Hulkbuster, which looks like it’s pretty similar to the giant Wal-Mart exclusive one (that you could put figures inside). It’s just scaled down to fit in traditional packaging. I think it’s pretty cool if you don’t think of it as Hulkbuster armor, just a “heavy duty” Iron Man suit.

    Why are Rhino and Doc Ock in such weird colors? They’re not sculpted after their likenesses on the show (which are the weird ‘Ultimate’ versions of the characters), but rather the traditional comic versions. So why the non-traditional colors? Seems like an odd pick.

    Target has released two exclusive five-packs of most of the new Avengers figures. All are the same versions of the figures featured here, except for Falcon. His suit has be repainted black…which looks surprisingly cool.

  2. Crossbones mask looks a bit enlongated, like his bottom jaw his where his chin should be

  3. I have a pretty good collection of Titan heroes. I use them as accents for my figure collection. I have not seen crossbones or some of the new ones down in south florida. For example no sandman or rhino yet.

  4. It’s nice to see better articulation on these, let’s hope it doesn’t mean worse quality. The Sandman and the new Hulk look sick… And I’ll have a lot of fun posing the Vulture with this new articulation.

  5. I fully fail to understand the appeal of these.
    Even as a kid I wouldn’t have wanted these
    That Spider-Man 2099 is just a weirsly obvious failure…

      • Yea, pretty much.

        I mean, I probably more or less started out with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figures and Playmobil.
        Those old original TMNT figures are waaaaaay better than these, and even basic Playmobil figures are more articulated.

        These might’ve been acceptable like…..40 years ago.

    • I can tell you from watching my 4 year old pay with them the biggest thing is they stand up on their own. The more articulated ones look better but often have bendable knees which are awkward to stand up and keep standing.

  6. This is a really late response, but if the Civil War Spider-Man suit rumors are to believed, is it possible that the armored Spidey could be released under the Avengers line?

  7. I also want the 2 new spider mans. Also cross one. They’re the only ones I haven’t found. Some one on eBay wants $80 for crossbones. Way too much.

  8. Why don’t they make the main characters of the Ultimate Spider-Man series into Titan heroes. Nick Fury, White Tiger, Nova, Luke Cage and Iron Fist oppose to 1000 remakes of Spider-Man

    • I’d like to know that to. It’s a strange strategy for Hasbro, because the figures are supposed to tie-in with the show. But the only thing they’ve actually released FROM the show is the many versions of Spider-Man. Each Titan made of the villains – while appearing in the show – is based upon the comic version and not what appears onscreen. I’m fine with that, as the comic versions are iconic and I find the Ultimate versions hideous. But there are also a wealth of other characters that could be released, as you’ve said. I would love a Nick Fury under any line (Spider-Man, Avengers, or based upon MCU). Perhaps one day?

  9. We have had the Rhino in the UK. He was a lot more than $10 however he is a fantastic figure. I am still looking for Doc Ock, the alternate costume version of Captain America and Crossbones.

    Black widow and Winter Soldier are appearing in abundance and Panther and the new Antman have appeared locally to me as well.

    Thinking of customising a few black widows into Wasp, Cap Marvel and Scarlet Witch. Sadly she’s a bit small for She Hulk 🙁

  10. I’m writing from Lima, Peru. These Action Figures have lately come into my country for the pleasure of all collectors (me included). Nevertheless, there are some of them that are not for sale so far (I haven’t seen them actually), and I wonder if you have released them to date, so please let me know. Namely: Scarlett Witch, Quicksilver, The Wasp, Hawkeye, Goliat and The Enchantress, among others. Where can I find them and how much they cost?. Thank you…
