New York Comic Con 2017 coverage brought to you by Eaglemoss Collections.
During a private press meeting at New York Comic Con, Hasbro revealed the return of a beloved property: the Mighty Muggs! The appoximately 6-inch tall mass market solution to urban vinyl toys was all the rage in the mid-2000s, taking on Hasbro’s many licensed properties, including GI Joe, Star Wars, Transformers, Indiana Jones and more. Then their size shrunk (Mini Muggs) and then the squat collectibles became limited to show exclusives, eventually vanishing from the toy collecting scene.
Hasbro feels the time is right to bring Mighty Muggs back, and this time they are new and improved! Each approximatley 5-inch collectible comes packaged in an attractive clear plastic tube. The pack not only shows off the figures well, but also acts as an excellent way to display them as each unit stacks. There’s a bifty “Try Me” feature too – push your finger through the top hole to watch the Mighty Mugg’s expression change! Each Mugg has a total of three different facial expressions – lending even more personality to the toys.
Hasbro will launch the new Mighty Muggs in January 2018 priced at $9.99 each. 50 different characters will make up the initial assortment from Hasbro’s Star Wars and Marvel licenses.
