Toy Fair 2010: Hasbro: Marvel Comics

Whether it’s SPIDER-MAN saving neighborhoods one web at a time or the SUPER HERO SQUAD united in the fight against the dastardly DOCTOR DOOM, Marvel’s Super Heroes continue to be wildly popular around the globe. As Hasbro (NYSE: HAS) swings into 2010, its new Marvel toy line lets kids experience the thrill and excitement of protecting the world from evil-doers.

Action figure enthusiasts will cheer the news that the SPIDER-MAN action figure line – for the first time ever – will be featured in the much-loved 3 ¾ inch scale. Beyond SPIDER-MAN figures outfitted in mission-specific suits, the toy line includes multiple vehicles to help SPIDER-MAN as he chases bad guys. The new SPIDER-MAN TRIPLE BATTLE TRUCK changes from one form to another so that the pursuit can continue on land, in the air, and on the sea. Loaded with electronic lights and sounds, the battle-ready vehicle even contains a projectile-firing web cannon to overcome the villain.

The new animated series SUPER HERO SQUAD is a smash hit with boys and features several of Marvel’s most loved heroes as they fight against the network of villains known as the Lethal Legion. In addition to the popular SUPER HERO SQUAD figures, the 2010 toy line features new vehicles including the SUPER HERO HEADQUARTERS, allowing kids to recreate their favorite scenes from the animated series and expand the fantasy play.

And Marvel Universe continues to have a touch of MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE fun as MARVEL UNIVERSE TRANSFORMERS CROSSOVERS change from action figures into awesome vehicles. In 2010, IRON MAN and WAR MACHINE action figures combine to create a jet while other heroes convert into race cars and motorcycles.
