NEW YORK, NY- In 2006, the Marvel Mega Morphs series from Toy Biz will explode into the marketplace with the introduction of two new action figure assortments featuring Super Hero favorites Spider-Man, Wolverine, Doc Ock, Captain America, Incredible Hulk and Ghost Rider. The sets include deluxe Super Hero assault bots that are powered by Super Heroes and have the ability to transform into powerful attack vehicles. Two assortments are currently available at retail and Toy Biz will continue to expand their Mega Morphs product line in Fall 2006.
Details of the new Mega Morphs product lines are as follows:
Each unique 8" Mega Morph comes with a 2" articulated Super Hero and can transform into futuristic transport vehicles based on specific Super Hero's powers. The Super Heroes can unlock only their own Mega Morph using the included Mega Power Pack. These Power Packs activate weapons and features in both robot and vehicle mode. A dedicated mini-comic is included that explains how Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) created the robots for each Super Hero and their ongoing battles against Doc Ock, who has stolen the blue prints to build his own Mega Morph.
