Black Panther, Rocket Raccoon, And Doctor Strange Included In Hasbro’s Newly Relaunched Mighty Muggs

by Gary Catig

Hasbro has their own line of collectible vinyl action figures known as Mighty Muggs. The line creates deformed cute versions of some of your favorite characters from pop culture. In the past, characters from the Star Wars, Marvel, Indiana Jones, GI Joe, and Transformers franchises have been released. One difference that separates this line from other vinyl action figures is that they incorporate a push-and-turn mechanism that allows the user to change the figure’s facial expression by pushing down on its head.

This month, Hasbro will be relaunching the Mighty Muggs line and over at, they teased pictures of three Marvel figures coming out in Wave 2, which will be available in February. The revealed characters will be Rocket Raccoon, Doctor Strange, and in time for the new movie, Black Panther. Sometimes the changes in facial expressions are not as noticeable, as in the case of Black Panther, where there are subtle differences in the eyes.  That smug half smile on Doctor Strange is priceless. Check out the new figures below.
