Disney, Hasbro and Target Launch MARVEL RISING product line Ahead of Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors!

Written by

The "action dolls" category just got a surprise addition - MARVEL RISING. Hasbro announced a new collaboration with Disney and Marvel for a nationwide rollout at Target stores for the new collection of 11" dolls and companion role play items. The animated Marvel Rising: Initiation shorts are currently available on Disney XD and Marvel HQ on Youtube, and the feature-length film Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors will premiere on Disney Channel and Disney XD on September 30th (see the new trailer here). The new toys feature Marvel’s next generation of Super Heroes including Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake, Patriot, American Chavez, Ghost-Spider, and more. These look great, and if you've seen Hasbro's recent line of Descendants dolls, these look very much in line with that... and there's also some fantastic apparel, Halloween costumes and walkie talkies in the mix. Check 'em out...
