Han Solo Returns as Hasbro’s Star Wars Line Awakens at NYCC

Star Wars the Force Awakens Hero Series BB-8

Though much of Hasbro’s upcoming plans for Star Wars remain under tight lock and key, the company did preview a handful of new figures during New York Comic Con. It’s not surprising that so few Star Wars figures are being shown considering just how secretive Disney and Lucasfilm are being about the upcoming sequel. Very few characters not shown in trailers or official photos have been teased or released previously, but that didn’t mean there weren’t a few exciting reveals this week.

To this point, the only classic trilogy character to get a new figure for The Force Awakens lines has been Chewbacca, but the Wookie’s best friend and co-pilot will soon join him. Old man Han Solo was the centerpiece of Hasbro’s Black Series unveilings at NYCC this week, and rightfully so. The iconic smuggler with a heart of gold has long been a fan favorite, and he’s one of the few returning heroes to have made an official appearance in promotion for The Force Awakens. Sure, there were some characters on display, too, but it’s hard not to feel a bit sentimental for a Han Solo figure based on a aged Harrison Ford.

Tombs You Want? Tombs You Get: Mariko Tamaki Takes On Lara Croft in ‘Tomb Raider II’ [Exclusive]


Tomb Raider is a franchise with a lot of amalgamated input, and one that a lot of people have their own take on. Is Lara Croft a strong female character, or a 'Strong Female Character'? From franchise director to commentator and critic, everybody's got their own idea of who Ms Croft should be --- or be for.

Recently Lara's been written by a succession of brilliant women, including Gail Simone, Rhianna Pratchett, and Corinna Bechko. As revealed today at New York Comic-Con, Mariko Tamaki is the next woman to take up Lara's story in comics form over at Dark Horse. ComicsAlliance spoke exclusively to Tamaki ahead of the announcement to find out more.

Wasp to Co-Star in ‘Ant-Man 2‘ as Marvel Pushes ‘Black Panther’ Forward, Rolls ‘Captain Marvel’ Back (Again)


When Marvel originally revealed their plans for Phase 3, conspicuously missing was a date for Ant-Man 2. There was some concern that Ant-Man may never get his sequel and would have to be content appearing in other Marvel things (like Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War), but those concerns have been allayed by Marvel who officially announced Ant-Man and the Wasp will open in theaters in 2018!

Hasbro Unleashes an Onslaught of Marvel Legends at NYCC 2015

Marvel Legends Rogue

Where Hasbro's pre-San Diego Comic-Con event treated us a new Spider-Man line, including Spider-Gwen and more, this week's pre-NYCC show was much more of a mixed bag. Though some of the figures shown actually made a brief appearance in San Diego (Captain America, Mockingbird and Taskmaster), the new additions were a stunning surprise. Of course, as great as it was to see such variation shown in the 6" Marvel Legends line, the news that the 3.75" line would be ditching its former monikers to fold into the Legend banner was just as huge.

No longer its own separate brand, the former Universe/Infinite line of figures will now also be known as Marvel Legends moving forward. Though it might cause some confusion among less savvy consumers, Hasbro has been using a similar tactic with the Star Wars Black Series to keep its highly-articulated figures, which are geared towards the adult collector, portioned off from the less articulate series. By bringing the 3.75" figures under the Legends marquee, Hasbro's just making a smart business decision to put its highest quality figures all in the same room. But enough about branding, let's talk about that 1990s Rogue.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’: Zoe Saldana Confirms Benicio Del Toro’s Return


Back in June, Benicio Del Toro didn’t seem too certain of his future in the MCU. While the actor said he’d love to keep developing his eccentric role as The Collector, he wasn’t sure if there was a place for him in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. As it turns out, there is, and his co-star Zoe Saldana has just confirmed it.

Captain America Leaps Headfirst Into Disney Infinity’s Marvel Battlegrounds

Disney Interactive
Disney Interactive

For those of you wondering just how the previously announced Ultron and Hulkbuster Iron Man figures would play into the recent release of Disney Infinity 3.0, wonder no more. This upcoming March, Disney Infinity 3.0 will see a new add-on arrive in the form of Marvel Battlegrounds. The play set, which will be offered just like the Toy Box Takeover and Toy Box Speedway, will introduce a new four-player, Marvel-themed brawler into the fray. While it won't follow a similar path as Disney Infinity 2.0's Avengers story, Marvel Battlegrounds will indeed have a narrative, though that's not the most important news.

Joining Hulkbuster and Ultron will be an all-new Captain America The First Avenger figure. Featuring an unmasked Cap in a costume reminiscent of his Avengers: Age of Ultron costume (why call it the First Avenger then?), the figure will come in new pose, have new powers and abilities, and also look handsome as hell. This is as close as we're ever going to get to a Pixar-styled Chris Evans, so soak it in, everyone. He's just as dreamy and Dorito-y as ever, even in digitized form.
