New York Toy Fair 2016 is nearing its close for the year, representing the 113th North American International Toy Fair – the largest toy and youth entertainment product marketplace in the Western Hemisphere.
The event, hosted at Jacob Javits Convention Center, has earned more attention than ever in recent years thanks to its close ties to the biggest blockbuster movies, video games, and television, most especially when it comes to comic book movie brands. With that in mind, Hasbro came prepared with new lines of figures to showcase for their Marvel lines and Captain America: Civil War tie-ins.
You saw our epic collection of leaked Captain America: Civil War promo art. Now check out official photos of the action figures for Civil War, minus certain key characters including Ant-Man, Vision, Hawkeye, Black Widow, War Machine, and of course, Peter Parker a.k.a. Spider-Man who makes his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in the film. We suspect all of these characters will have figures on store shelves this fall, however. The following pages though, have many more figures from Marvel cosmic, Spider-Man comics, and yes, even the X-Men!
Note: some of the figures are taken from Marvel Comics, namely the Captain America variant, original Nick Fury, and Nuke who’s only getting a figure because of his live-action debut in Netflix’s Jessica Jones.

On the X-Men front, Hasbro unveiled new figures and wave additions for their 3.75″ and 6″ lines, featuring fan-fave classic designs of Rogue, Kitty Pryde, Jean Grey and more. As per usual, no Fantastic Four toys…
These were headlined by Deadpool and Cable – both currently dominating headlines thanks to Deadpool’s record-breaking box office success in theaters and the announcement that Cable will be in the sequel.

We may not get any official images of Spider-Man toys coming from any tie-ins to the MCU and Captain America: Civil War yet, but that’s not stopping Marvel’s most popular character from getting the most attention on the merchandise front.
Hasbro unveiled masked and unmasked Peter Parker Spider-Man figures at New York Toy Fair 2016, several villain figures (Hobgoblin and Morbius), black suit Spider-Man and of course, the new Spidey, Miles Morales, who finds himself leading the web slinging charge in the main Marvel Comics universe after the events of Secret Wars.
Don’t worry, Tom Holland fans, he has his own movie hitting theaters next year!
Our last gallery of Marvel Hasbro figures from New York Toy Fair 2016 place the spotlight on some personal faves from the Marvel cosmic side – namely Quasar, Captain Marvel, Hyperion, and Guardians of the Galaxy’s Gamora. Sadly, no Richard Rider Nova Prime despite the Annihilators version of Quasar, but the inclusion of Living Laser and Doctor Strange villain Dormammu make up for that:
