by Gary Catig

A great deal of toy news has broken out recently from several companies. Since New York Toy Fair is later this month, they are trying to build up buzz for their new lines they plan to announce at the annual expo. Hasbro is no exception, and they have been previewing a large number of their Marvel merchandise items. Recently, we showed updates for the Deadpool line, and now there are teases for Venom and Black Panther.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed images of new Venom and Carnage action figures. There is no announced release date yet, but we can still look at what’s in store.  First, the two Spider-Man villains will be joining the Titan Hero Series, which are 12 inch figures, and will retail for $9.99.

There will also be a Marvel Venom 2-Pack with both characters. Each figure will be 6 inches and the set will retail for $19.99.

More importantly for collectors, there will be a Venom Marvel Legends line that will include the titular character and Carnage. The articulated and highly detailed figures will retail for $19.99.  Now there has been a formal announcement, I hope Hasbro discloses the other figures in the line at Toy Fair.

Separately announced will be the release of the Marvel Legend Series Black Panther Helmet. Check out the details below.
