Marvel Hall of Fame (Toy Biz)



Marvel Hall of Fame
Toy Biz
1996-1997

Marvel Hall of Fame was a series produced by Toy Biz which featured several rereleased figures from their prior lines, most of which were repainted, as well as many new figures based on characters that prior to the series were never made available.  The line was available only online at Puzzlezoo.com, and was a rather successful line lasting seven waves, and featuring thirty-five figures.

Series one was a basic set of figures which feature a repainted Colossus from series one of The Uncanny X-Men line, Daredevil and Invisible Woman from the Marvel Superheroes line, Deadpool from the X-Force series one line, and Rhino from series three of Spider-Man.

SERIES 1
Colossus*Daredevil*Deadpool
Invisible Woman*Rhino
 
 

 Series two was labeled as She-Force, and featured only female characters.  They included; Black Queen, which was a repaint of a White Queen figure to create the new figure, Jean Grey, who was repainted from a Domino figure, Ms. Marvel, who was repainted from a Medusa figure, a repainted Spider-Woman from the Iron Man series two wave, and Storm from the X-Men series one wave with a few more paint details - such as the yellow stripe down the front of her outfit.

SERIES 2
Black Queen*Jean Grey*Ms. Marvel
Spider Woman*Storm
 
Series three switched back to the basic line of figures, and included Iceman from series two of The Uncanny X-Men line, another Invisible Woman figure from the first Fantastic Four line, a new Spider-Man, Venom from the Marvel Superheroes line, and Wolverine in his yellow costume with the head of Wolverine from the third series of The Uncanny X-Men.

SERIES 3
Iceman*Invisible Woman*Spider-Man
Venom*Wolverine
 
Series four was the first series in 1997, and included Cyborg Cable from the fifth series of X-Force, Green Goblin from the third series of Spider-Man, Samurai Iron Man from the fourth series of Iron Man, a new Spider-Man in his black suite, and Wizard from the fourth series of Fantastic Four.


SERIES 4
Cable Cyborg*Green Goblin*Iron Man
Spider-Man*Wizard
 
Series five was released under the sub title Unmasked, and featured Carnage from the sixth series of Spider-Man, Deadpool, who was the same as Deadpool II from the sixth series of X-Force, Magneto, who was a repaint of the figure released in the Age of Apocalypse line, Venom from series four of the Spider-Man line, and War Machine who would be the same from series four of Iron Man, but now featuring a removable helmet.

SERIES 5
Carnage*Deadpool*Magneto
Venom*War Machine
 
Series six reverted back to the She-Force sub series and stayed as such throughout the remainder of the series.  The figures released were; Dazzler, which was an all new figure, Marvel Girl, who was created by repainting a Spider-Woman figure from the Iron Man line, Ms. Marvel who was created by repainting a Phoenix figure, Black Cat from the Spider-Man line, but with a tail added, and the all new Wolfsbane.

SERIES 6
Dazzler*Marvel Girl*Ms. Marvel
Tigra*Wolfsbane
 
Series seven was the final wave of figures from the Hall of Fame line, and featured a bald Elektra who was created by repainting a Psylocke figure.  A fun fact about this figure is that the headband is actually the belt from Psylocke's waist.  The remaining four figures were;  Shanna the She-Devil who was created by repainting an Invisible Woman figure from the Fantastic Four line, Savage She-Hulk was created by repainting a La Lunatica from the X-Men 2099 line, and a plastic shirt added, Silver Fox, who was created by using the head of the Ninja Force Psylocke and body of Invisible Woman with a cape added, and finally, Viper, who was created using the head from a Generation X White Queen, and the body of a Psylocke figure with a belt added.


SERIES 7

Silver Fox*Viper
