With only a few days left until Toy Fair, rumors are coming through the woodworks. This latest bit of info comes from a reddit user, EpicThrowback, who claims that a local Comic book store owner gave him info on some upcoming figures and waves. While I have my doubt about some of these, he does mention some interesting items.
The first item he mentions come as a particular interest as he mentions a Punisher Van set. This has me doubting this post as I just don’t see Hasbro putting in the effort making this when their Star Wars Tie-Fighter sold poorly. BUT If true it opens up a whole host of figures and vehicles. Maybe the long request Robbie Reyes’ Ghost Rider and his Charger?
As for the rest:
- the 2 X-men wave are more then likely the AOA and Strong Guy waves.
- It has already been rumoured that we were getting a number of Fan Channel exclusives, including a black suited Kingpin.
- I mentioned the rumor of a Spider-man retro wave before but it looks like we might have another one. Iron Man maybe?
- That Spider-man wave could very well just be the Venom wave as it fall under the Spider-man banner.
- 4 exclusives is no surprise as we already have several rumoured like the Walgreens Iron Man 2020 and Moon Knight
- We know of the 2 Avengers gamerverse wave but I doubt there will be another until NEXT year (if hasbro keeps the license).
- I have no idea what he was talking about with the DUD and Normal wave thing.
Like I said, it is very questionable about some of these but it is fun to see what could be.
