So now that we've got two giant Hasbro lines up, we can make some notes. Love the idea of  $5.99 figures and I'm sure all the mommies and daddies strapped for cash love it even more. Now if they'd embrace it fully and make something besides the central character for each line, I think you'd have people very happily making a collection of it. Die hard collectors will remember those Dollar General Marvel Universe figures that popped up some time back, also with limited articulation and paints, and also for $5.99 a pop. Who's to say this isn't the fate of the Marvel Universe line? To encourage kids to build an entire universe, it might be wise to create a lower cost line in which Hasbro is free to throw in any oddball character under the sun because, at this price, how could retailers say no?! Just the Marvel name alone should be a selling point now. Don't forget we still haven't see the Avengers Assemble line, though, and this may be what is replacing MU. If the show follows the past comics at all, or is anything like the last Avengers cartoon, they'll establish them as the center of the Marvel Universe and have them interact with every character in it..good and bad. Sounds like the Marvel Universe line to me!

I'm also digging this 12 inch Titan Series rotocast figure for $9.99 model. Again, limited articulation, and rotocast means less plastic..so less cost. The great thing about rotocast is you can get an excellent sculpt for half the price. Rotocast figures are hollow after all. I'm told the new Star Wars 12 inch figures up for pre-order follow this model as well. I'm excited to see who they add to the line next!
