There are a few here that I’m excited about, but more than anything I’m hoping for a Captain Marvel figure. I assume it will come out closer to the movie, though.
A lot of the figures in this line are wearing masks, so we’re missing out on my favorite part of them, the expressions. However, Doctor Strange, Captain America, Ant-Man, and Wasp are both fun looking. Doctor Strange has an awesome face and the other three just look like great toys.
As of posting this there are a few figures in this line that are no longer available on the Disney Store. Thor, Green Hulk, and Spider-Man. So if you want a complete collection you’ll want to snap those up quick if you find them. I’ve added some links to Amazon where they’re still showing up, though, definitely pay attention to price.
Thoughts and Speculation
Right now the list is incredibly sparse when it comes to female characters. Where’s Gamora? Where’s Okoye and Shuri? There are already so few female characters in Marvel and this list really highlights it. Black Widow and Wasp. No Scarlett Witch. No Valkyrie. As a female fan it’s incredibly depressing.
Surely, we’ll get them at some point. Surely. For now, we wait. And as much as I think Doctor Strange looks amazing and I hope they do a short haired, one eyed Thor, I don’t feel a rush to buy this line. Wasp definitely, but that’s about it.
It also seems a bit random with the characters. I assume they were going with the first movie for each, except with Ant-Man and Black Widow. I understand Ant-Man since his movie just came out, but why with Black Widow? Why Gray Hulk too? Thor also looks really bad. Maybe he looks better in person, I haven’t been able to find him, so I’m trying to give them the benefit of the doubt there. Still, this line looks like less thought was put in and it was more of a money grab, which is disappointing.
The most recent rumors I’ve seen have shown a Hulk Buster set with green Hulk, and Spider-Man with a Dune Buggy. I don’t seem to remember Spider-Man having a Dune Buggy, but whatever.
