Stan Lee Action Figure to Hit Stores

Stan Lee, the creator of Spider-Man of Marvel Comics, now has his own action figure by Hasbro. The 84-year-old comic book legend is shown wearing eyeglasses, a blue windbreaker, and khaki pants. "We feel it's long overdue that Stan Lee be immortalized as an action figure, much like the dozens of marvelous characters that he has created for years and years," said Eric Nyman, Hasbro's vice president of marketing. "And it couldn't be more fitting than to create him as a `Marvel Legends' figure." The toy will sell for $14.99 and will be available only as a limited edition product. It will be introduced at the San Diego Comic-Con International in July (2007).

Shown at left is a mini bust of Stan Lee by Bowen Designs. It is not the action figure toy by Hasbro and is only shown for reference.
