We're on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, inside the new Avengers Tower; formerly Stark Tower and now converted to a de facto headquarters for the Earth’s mightiest heroes. It’s all very sleek and shiny and pretty much exactly what you'd expect from a place Tony Stark calls home. Except now, it's a complete disaster. There's broken glass scattered across the floor. Furniture is destroyed. There are giant gashes in the wall. There's a production assistant dramatically swinging a giant cape around (the actors film their fight scenes without the cape, and the cape is added later in post-production).
Avengers: Age of Ultron
You didn't think Hot Toys was going to keep its biggest weapon on the bench forever, did you? Yes, that's right; Hot Toys has finally added a Hulk to the growing roster of upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron figures.
You can't go to a retailer these days without running across at least one of the many different toy lines Hasbro's released based on Marvel's various characters and properties. We're not complaining. If anything, we want more. Lucky for us, Hasbro's Toy Fair 2015 offerings had just what we were looking for--more Avengers, more Legends, and most of all, more Misty Knight.
Ever since the announcement of Captain America: Civil War, we’ve been curious about how the Russo brothers will begin to adapt Marvel’s Civil War comic book story line for the big screen, kicking off a major new arc in the MCU (and one that sees Spider-Man swinging in with a crossover). According to Robert Downey Jr., the seeds for Civil War have already been planted in Avengers: Age of Ultron, once again proving just how much planning and foresight goes into the creation of the MCU.
If you're looking for a diverse line of toys that not only spans a variety of licenses and genres, but also puts your brain to the test, Lego's Toy Fair 2015 offerings might be of interest to you. From Marvel and DC to Scooby-Doo and Star Wars, this year's line-up offers incredible do-it-yourself creations for fans of all ages, even those meddling kids.
The first official images of Hot Toys' upcoming Ultron Prime from Avengers: Age of Ultron has been loosed to the wild, and they don't disappoint... much. While we've been waiting patiently for a better look at the big bad behind this summer's big Marvel blockbuster, we've got to admit, it's a little bit of a bummer this high-end figure is so barebones.
Unlike the previously announced Avengers that will make up this line, Ultron Prime doesn't come with much beyond a menacing presence and few lights. At least the minimal Thanos announced a short while ago comes with a massive accessory in his stone throne. All Ultron comes with is a lighted base, which is nice, but nothing to get amped up about.
With a movie the size of Avengers: Age of Ultron, we’ve been seeing a lot of promo art hit the ‘net in recent months. Obviously we’ve been a little more interested in new concepts, like Vision, Ultron, and the Hulkbuster Iron Man armor, and today brings even more promo art from Joss Whedon’s upcoming sequel, featuring all that and then some. And judging by some of this art, Ultron might just win his battle.
If you thought Hot Toys was only going to release sixth-scale faithful recreations of the Avengers roster as it exists in Avengers: Age of Ultron, you were wrong. The Chinese toymaker just announced a new line of designer figures, which will debut with a collection of six characters from the upcoming Marvel sequel.
The Artist Mix line is a new way for Hot Toys to offer a bit more diversity in its catalog, while also allowing the company to partner up with designers and artists that provide a style radically different from what we're used to seeing from the high-end manufacturer. For this first wave, Hot Toys has teamed with toy designer Touma to craft mini, bobble head versions of Iron Man, Captain America and Ultron.
Seems like you can't check the internet these days without a new monthly mystery box subscription being announced. From geeky flavored subscriptions like Loot Crate and Nerdblock, to lifestyle selections like Birchbox and The Gentleman's Box, there's something for everyone.
Typically filled with a random assortment of goodies based around a theme, these boxes have offered subscribers a way to try new things without spending too much cash. However, we've rarely seen a single brand put out a box based solely on its own goods. That's where Funko's and Marvel's new Collector Corps hopes to stand out.
For what seems like an eternity, Lego and Marvel fans alike have been looking forward to the brickmaker's take on SHIELD's iconic mobile headquarters, the Helicarrier. After years of waiting, the dream came true. This March, Lego will release a massive scale replica of the high-flying fortress, complete with the world's first ever Maria Hill mini-figure.
Coming in at just under 3,000 pieces (2,996 to be exact), the Lego SHIELD Helicarrier isn't just going to be a beast to put together, at 31 inches long, 17 inches wide, and 11 inches tall, it's also going to be one of the largest Lego sets in the Marvel Super Hero Line (though it's still a bit smaller than the Lego Super Star Destroyer from Star Wars). It should be noted, the Helicarrier being released is going to be based on the first Avengers film, and not Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, the mini-figures included are all based on the costumes Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye, Nick Fury and Maria Hill are wearing in the latest film. And yes, you read that right; there will be two female figures included, even if it will cost you $349.99 to get them.
