The Combat Heroes began 2009 continuing its focus on the Real American Hero designs. However, with a major motion picture released this year, the line transitioned into the movie aesthetic, though not without some difficulty. One wave of figures was very nearly lost in the shuffle, and some store exclusive sets were canceled. While the movie line had a larger release of figures, the line itself was cancelled at the end of the year. It should be noted that this line was just one of many similarly designed Hasbro toy lines that would be gone by year's end.
