Hasbro Answers Your Marvel Q&A Questions, No More Blue Human Torch, Punisher Crossovers

{mosimage} Hasbro has sent back their answers for the first round of the 2010 Marvel Q&A…and some sad news for Marvel Crossovers repaint fans. The blue Human Torch repaint, and the Punisher remold of Captain America have been dropped!

3) Are the blue Human Torch and Punisher Marvel Crossovers still planned?We haven't seen anything of them since their brief appearance at SDCC last summer.

3) Unfortunately, these figures were dropped from the Crossovers line, but look for a new wave hitting this summer!

You can see and discuss the rest of the questions here!


1) What is the process for choosing the articulation style for different 3.75 figures? The new Iron Man 3.75 line is going with ball-jointed hips like the Wolverine Movie figures. In the representatives of the Wolverine line I have purchased, I've found the ball joints to be inferior to the style used in the regular Marvel U line due to their diminutive size. The ball-joints have a tendency to stick and be very difficult to move making the figures less poseable over all.

1) Generally the movie figures will have ball hips. The Marvel Universe articulation will continue to evolve. Hence the new neck joint and thigh swivel seen in upcoming characters. Going forward we will explore more ways to add articulation to the Marvel Universe line.

2) The Marvel Legends and Universe lines have been known to create some fantastic metallic finishes by first painting a figure silver, and then laying a candy coat over top of this silver. Like the red on Universe Silver Centurion Iron Man.

Is this a technique that can be implemented on the Marvel Crossovers? It seems like giant metal robots would look fantastic with that particular method of paint application.

2) We agree! And we are always looking to explore new deco opportunities for our figures!

3) Are the blue Human Torch and Punisher Marvel Crossovers still planned?We haven't seen anything of them since their brief appearance at SDCC last summer.
