** What If – Hasbro Changed The Primary Way Marvel Legends Are Sold At Retail? (https://marvelousnews.com/252-26769) ———————————————————— https://marvelousnews.com/252-26769 I don’t know what it’s been like for you these past several weeks. For me, I have been stuck in my house with a COVID-19 pandemic shelter in place rule in place, leaving only for a supply run to the corner grocery or taking my dog for a walk. My access to new action figures (assuming any are available on local shelves) has been greatly restricted.
I still have access to shopping online for my plastic fix at places like BBTS, but the recent events really have me thinking about what the future holds for action figures and how things might change long-term.
Obviously, with many under the same type of shelter in place restrictions, I am sure several will turn to more online shopping, at least in the immediate future. With that in mind, WHAT IF a company like Hasbro started shaping how they release figures based more on the online delivery channels?

** G.I. Joe: Retro Listings Online (https://toynewsi.com/9-36065) ———————————————————— https://toynewsi.com/9-36065
We first told you about these G.I. Joe Retro figure listings that showed up at Walmart last month (https://toynewsi.com/9-35905) . While we still have no specific information on what exactly these are, the general thought is that they will be some type of tribute 3 3/4″ action figure line sold exclusively at Walmart stores. The $12.93 price lends itself to these being in the 3 3/4″ scale, and the word “Retro” brings thoughts of the classic 80’s products. Also note two listings are for vehicles. A Retro H.I.S.S. Tank vehicle with a $26.82 price and Awe Striker with a $26.82 price. Head over to ToyNewsi for more details (https://toynewsi.com/9-36065)
