When did Marvel start making toys?

Though the first Marvel Comics appeared in 1939, Marvel toys were not introduced until the 1960s, with six Marvel Superhero action figures available to order directly from ads in the back of the comics. 


With every release, Marvel comics increased in popularity – and so did Marvel figurines. This led to Marvel merging with Toybiz in 2002, creating what is now considered the longest-running Marvel toy line in history. Producing high-quality figurines that were meticulously crafted to an exceptional standard, Toybiz and Marvel set the bar for all future action figures.


In 2006, Marvel Entertainment signed an agreement with Hasbro Inc, continuing the Marvel Legends toy line originally started by Toybiz. Hasbro continues to produce Marvel toys, figurines and collectables to this day, continuing its strong Marvel relationship while ensuring Marvel fans and collectors are spoiled for choice.

What company makes Marvel toys?

Hasbro creates Marvel toys and has done so since 2006 when the company bought out Toybiz. 


Are there only 27 Marvel movies?

There are currently 31 Marvel movies, and with various others in several stages of development, the franchise shows no signs of slowing down!


Marvel releases their films in ‘phases’, consisting of movies linked together by the cast or plot points.


The next Marvel releases will be part of stage five, including The Marvels and Captain America: New World, to name a few. 


Marvel also has various releases in the pipeline for phase six, rumoured to include Deadpool 3 and many more Avengers adventures.
