It looks like there's a Merc-with-a-modular-mouth and a Spirit-of-swappable-vengeance coming to Hasbro's mix-and-match-able Marvel Super Hero Mashers line later this year. Expanding on an initial wave of Iron Man, Wolverine, Hulk, Iron Patriot, Thor, Captain America, Spider-Man, Hawkeye and Doctor Doom toys, Hasbro is introducing new characters as part of its "Battle Upgrade," "Mash Pack" and vehicle assortments.
Marvel Super Hero Mashers
As much as we all loved Mattel's Secret Wars action figure line with its lenticular hologram shields, here 30 years into the future, Hasbro maaaaaay just have topped them with its new Marvel Super Hero Mashers. Comprised of removable body parts and accessories, the new Super Hero Mashers toys can be popped apart and reconfigured so that users can "make their own hero mash-up." You want a Hulk with Captain America's shield, Spider-Man's webs, Dr. Doom's cape and a righteous Iron Man helmet? With this line, mixing and matching is the name of the game and encourages just that kind of combo.
