First Mattel with their DC Universe Infinite Heroes line of 3 and 1/4" action figures and now it's Hasbro's turn for the Marvel characters!

From Here:

The new line is tied into the Shield has been taken over. Who do you trust? The website should be live now. It will expand over time. The user will become a Shield agent.

This will be a big multi-media launch.

Each figure will include a Top Secret file card.

Articulation is a key to Marvel Legends so the 3 3/4 figures will be fully poseable. Figures will include acessories, such as Sufer's board, Goblin's Glider and Punisher's guns.

Iron Man, Spider-Man, Silver Surfer, Punisher, Blackk Panther, Bulls-Eye, Daredevil, Human Torch and variant Johnny Storm, Stealth Armor Iron Man,
X-Force Wolverine, Hulk, Ronin, Iron Fist, black costume Spider-Man, troop building Hand ninjas, classic Iron Man, Ms.Marvel and classic variant, Thing and a mail away figure of Nick Fury based on Jesse Falcon, Hobgoblin, Moon Knight, Ultimate Nick Fury, Ultimate Captain America, Grey Hulk, Union Jack with guns, Thor and Colossus were shown.

The detailing looks great and so does the paint apps. The slides of the figures shown were the actual 3 3/4 versions, not two ups.

Hasbro is considering how to continue the Legends line. Hasbro wants to continue the line but there are increasing challenges to doing so in retail. One method is more exclusives as we've been seeing.

After the next Icon wave release, a Diamond and TRU shared exclusive, there are no plans for further Icon waves.

There are no immediate plans for vehicles or playsets in the 3 3/4 line, but that is a logical step in the future.

Hasbro is also considering larger figures in the 3 3/4 scale, like Sentinels and Galactus.

Some of the 3 3/4 figures will have double jointed knees.
