Toy Biz Marvel Figures Finally Appeared Marvel Legendsa line Hasbro would take over with great success. Now, in the latest acknowledgment of the line’s roots, Hasbro is announcing an Apocalypse figure on a Toy Biz-style card, but updated with modern sculpting and articulation.
Featuring a retro color scheme, it doesn’t quite replicate the “growing” action feature of the Toy Biz original. However, he has an enlarged scale body and buildable figure. And he even has some kind of “action feature” – switch his hand for a triple blaster with detachable fire effects. Plus two heads, with open or closed mouth.
