Marvel's Avengers Masher Action Figures Set


Marvel's Super Hero Mashers Avengers - Mash Up Pack Action Figures

The Marvel's Super Hero Mashers Avengers set is a great collection of action figures that are more straight out of the cartoons then the movie. The Marvel's Super Hero Mashers Avengers pack is a limited edition set which includes 5 super heroes and contains 44 pieces.

Included action figures are:

  • Captain America
  • Hulk
  • Thor
  • Iron Man
  • Vision

As the name suggests each of the action figure comes apart as individual pieces which you can then mash-ups your favorite superheroes into any hundreds of combinations. Each figure also includes their unique weapons. I like this set of action figures because of its unique look, the figures are less detailed and more cartoon/comic like, The hulk is especially a favorite. The style of play is certainly different and will provide hours of entertain for kids. Kind of like a combination of Lego and regular action figures. You can even increase the fun by addition other Masher sets to your combination which will just create endless combinations of mash-ups. The only issues i see with this set is the size of some of the pieces which may be chocking hazard for younger children and as well as depending on how rough they are treated the individual pieces may no longer snap collect properly. But then again you should have plenty of replacement hands & legs to choose from.

The Avengers Masher set is made by Hasbro and for more details please see the unboxing video below.

Iron Man Mark VII ArtFX Statue by Kotobukiya


This Iron Man Mark VII ARTFX statue is a 1/6 scale reproduction of Iron Man from The Avengers movie made by Kotobukiya. The statue stands nearly 33 cm tall including the road concert georama base. Made using new 3D sculpting technology this figure includes more fine detailing than previous handsculpted figures. The paint works is exceptional in this series and may even out do other statues at higher price ranges.

This Iron Man Mark VII is quick assembly and come with snap-fit parts. Other features includes LED light up eyes and chest-mounted arc reactor. Unfortunately the hand repulsor do not light up which would have made this statue more impressive. The switch for the LED lights are also hidden in the shoulder and has three different modes: Continues on, Off and a motion detector.
