Hasbro offers vintage-themed “Classic Collection” at SDCC
It’s been a long time since Micronauts fans had new product to get excited about, but Hasbro is changing that in a big (but also small) way this July at San Diego Comic Con. “The Interchangeable World of the Micronauts” is back as the “Classic Collection” features three Micronauts figures created from the original tooling. Micronauts was a tremendously successful toy line from 1976 to 1980, featuring alien heroes and villains with interchangeable parts and accessories. The SDCC set includes three classic characters: Galactic Warrior, Orbital Defender, and Pharoid. The three figures come packed out in an homage to the classic “Astro Station” playset.
The Classic Collection set also features brand new art for each figure from legendary artist Ken Kelly, who created the original Micronauts toy art nearly 40 years ago. Every set purchased at San Diego Comic Con will receive a copy of the new IDW Micronauts comic (issue #3) with the new Pharoid art as an exclusive cover. Mr. Kelly will hold two signings at the Hasbro booth: Friday, July 22nd from 3-4 PM, and Saturday July 23rd from 2-3 PM.
We are looking forward to seeing our Micronauts fans at the Hasbro booth at San Diego Comic Con!
