In the July 17th edition of Hisstanks's Q&A with Hasbro a Mighty Muggs question was thrown in and answered. Here's the lowdown:
Q: In the last G.I. Joe Q & A session it was stated that the wave 3 Mighty Muggs would be out before the movie. That doesn't appear to have happened. Were these shelved altogether or delayed to a later date?
A:The Wave 3 figures were produced, shipped, and should be making their way out to retail in the next month. In the future, Mighty Muggs will only be available at select retailers.
So even though the last wave of GI Joe Mighty Muggs didn't fare well at Retailers, looks like a wave 3 might still make it to stores after all. Keep your eyes peeled!
Starwars.com is currently running an article on an upcoming event at this years San Diego Comic Con dubbed The Empire Muggs Back. In a nutshell, Hasbro has graciously donated blank Mighty Muggs to artist, comic book creators, toy designers to creat their very own custom Mighty Mugg creations and the results will be auctioned off by The Make-A-Wish Foundation. If you are attending SDCC this year make sure you stop by the Habro booth to check out this wonderful creations and even bid on some of these works of art that will help a wonderful foundation benefiting really deserving kids. Here's a small glimpe of some of the Muggs that will on display

Here he is in all his glory, ENJOY!

Here's yet another Q&A this time from Yodasnews.com where Hasbro is pretty much doing whatever it can to tell us in no certain terms that Mighty Muggs are done. Here's the exchange:
YN: A lot of people were sad to hear that the Mighty Muggs will be TRU Exclusives this fall, can you give us any more information on this? We heard from e-stores and Hasbro direct dealers that MM were a great seller. With a lot of collectors and kids not able to get to TRU in all areas will these also be sold on Hasbro's Website or TRU's site? Any chance they will come back to a broader release in 2010?
H: Despite fans of the format, Mighty Muggs seemed to appeal to a small but passionate minority of the overall Star Wars collecting audience compared to all our other Star Wars sub lines. There is no chance that Mighty Muggs, at least in the current size or format, will come back as a broader or national release. It is unknown whether TRU.com will be selling Mighty Muggs, but we'll pass on the encouragement. It will not be sold through HasbroToyShop.com.
Well, there is it. Stop by our forums and join the discussion.

Hey Loungers, I know news is slow but nonetheless here's something.

Good luck and happy hunting!

Rebelscum.com has put up another of their "Ask Hasbro" Q&A sessions and there happens to be a question regarding the future of the Star Wars Mighty Muggs. Here's the info:
"Rebelscum: Could you give any more details about Mighty Muggs becoming TRU Exclusives? What will this mean for future waves? If you see the line ending, will you try to pump out the highly requested Muggs like Jedi Luke, young Anakin, Darth Malak, TIE Pilot, Sandtrooper, Jawas, Galen Marek, etc?
Hasbro: After Spring (from August on), Mighty Muggs will be found exclusively at Toys 'R Us. Right now there are no plans for additional exclusive waves of Muggs beyond what has already been shown."
So, what's this mean for Mighty Muggs exactly? Well it doesn't look good that's for sure. But Hasbro would tell you that they aren't saying no or yes just that there aren't any plans for further Mighty Muggs wave at this point in time.

"Mighty Muggs will have Movie characters, which could be why the 3rd wave looked cancelled - those Gen1 figures might be pushed back until after the movie."
Then we have this tidbit from TFW2005.com from AU Toyfair:
"Also confirmed are Movie-themed Transformers Mighty Muggs. No word yet on which characters from the films will receive the Mighty Muggs treatment, although Movie Optimus Prime and Megatron are practically a given."
No pics yet but this is exciting news as it's the first sign of hope that Transformers Mighty Muggs will continue with future waves. Stay tuned for more!

Here's an update to our report from yesterday from the pages of Toyfare magazine #139 and as promised, here's your first look at G.I. Joe Mighty Muggs Serpentor!
There's a great article in magazine covering Hasbro's plan for G.I. Joe for 2009 with Hasbro's global brand marketing director Michael Ritchie and here are some interesting tidbits concerning Mighty Muggs:
Toyfare: Does the Joe team work on the Joe Mighty Muggs or is there a separate team at Hasbro that works on these styles across all licenses?
Ritchie: It's sort of a collaboration within Hasbro. Our Joe team works on everything that's Joe whether it's Mighty Muggs or Combat Heroes or puzzles or games in different isles of the store. And then you have another team who focuses on Mighty Muggs just to make sure there is consistency across the brand. Between the marketers and the designers who work on the Mighty Muggs brand as well the G.I. Joe brand we work together to make sure we've got that right expression.
Pick up a copy of Toyfare at a comic Shop near you for the full article as well as the lowdown on the G.I. Joe movie!
