Toy Fair 2008: Jesse Falcon dishes details on the fate of Legendary Comic Book Heroes LCBH Line and more
2008 Toy Fair: Ryno - 2008.02.16
At the American International Toy Fair 2008 in New York we had a chance to talk with Jesse Falcon at Marvel Toys (formerly ToyBiz) about Wave 3 of Legendary Comic Book Heroes and more.

It turns out that Wave 3 of Legendary Comic Book Heroes will not be released and that the line is done. Jesse went on to tell us that even though sales were good, Marvel Toys decided to pull the plug so they could concentrate more on working with outside vendors like Hasbro. Jesse was very excited about what was coming down the pipeline and believes that collectors and fans will be very happy come the New York Comic-Con and San Diego Comic Con this year.

For a look at the Legendary Comic Book Heroes Wave 3 that will never see production, Click Here to see our gallery from the 2007 SDCC.

The only three I have are Witchblade,Darkness,and Anne O'brien. I wanted Aphrodite and the Ghost, but I'll survive.

This is odd to say the least. I have still yet to see Wave 2 (aside from Judge Death) in stores and the 2-packs are finally showing up en masse. Its not for the figures I saw at SDCC that I weep (for the most part the first 3 waves didn't do a lot for me), but it was the concept of the line an... read more

While the longevity of this line was always in question, I think dropping this bomb before Series 3 (shown a year ago)could be released and while 2 was just beginning to trickle-out is absolutely deplorable; truly [b]bad[/b] timing. Hell, a few Wal-Ma... read more

BOOOOOOO!!! I was looking forward to that Aphrodite X. What were the other figs that were supposed to come with wave 3?? Was Grendel one of them?? Now I guess I'll have to wait for Scud (Shocker doesn't seem so bad now do they??)
