The Avengers will be back on May 1st, 2015 and to kick off their highly anticipated sequel, Hasbro has launched a new Legends Infinite Series Line. These highly detailed and decorated six-inch figures include Captain America, Hulk, Iron Man Mark 43 and more to be announced! If these figures of the Earth’s Mightiest aren’t enough for you, each will include a piece for a Thanos Build-A-Figure!
Wait! That’s not all! Have you wondered how the greatest super hero team of all time gets to where they need to go after a long day of fighting super villains? To go along with these highly articulated figures is the Avenger’s Quinjet, styled after the Avenger’s primary vehicle in the 2015 sequel. The cockpit can fit up to three figures (not included) and can launch an additional figure on the motorcycle, which is included, into battle with the push of a button!
If all that wasn’t enough for you, Hasbro has launched a line of role-playing accessories to help you become your favorite Avenger. For all you Captain America fans, pick up the new “Captain America Star Launch Shield” and pull the ripcord to shoot a disk out of the center to give the dangerous Ultron a surprise counter attack! If a Hulk Smash is more of your style, grab a pair of the “Hulk Gamma Grip Fists” to grip, grab and hurt any villain (and occasionally Thor) that stands in your way. Lastly, for all you tech geniuses out there pick up the “Iron Man Arc FX Armor” and use some advanced Stark Tech to blast anyone threatening the planet.
To go along with the six-inch Legends Infinite Series, Hasbro will also be releasing a Wave 2 of 3.75 inch Infinite Series figures in Spring 2015 with some non-Avengers: Age of Ultron characters. This wave will include Thunderstrike, Shanna, Daredevil, Spider-Man, Colossus and more.
These will all be available early next year, and don’t forget to go see Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron coming to theaters on May 1st 2015.
Check out images below and stay tuned to Hasbro for more info!

Since his comic book debut in 1968, brilliant inventor Tony Stark has always stayed at the forefront of technology as he developed newer and better versions of his Iron Man armor. He’s come a long way from the transistors of the 1960′s, and his latest suits of armor can respond to his very thoughts! Now, Diamond Select Toys and marvelshop.com have collaborated on an all-new Marvel Select action figure immortalizing one of Iron Man’s most high-tech armors ever: Bleeding Edge Iron Man!
Debuting in Invincible Iron Man #25, the Mark 38 armor is actually made up of millions of nano-machines stored inside Tony Stark’s body, which exit through the pores of his skin using repulsor technology to form a protective layer over his entire body. While Stark has since developed other armors, the Mark 38 represented a new way of thinking about Iron Man, and was truly on the “bleeding edge” of comic book technology.
Exclusively available at marvelshop.com starting October 13 this 7-inch action figure has 16 points of articulation, and comes with a display base that simulates Iron Man’s flight path through the wing of an enemy fighter jet. Base and figure will come packaged in display-ready Select figure packaging, with comic art on the side panel for easy reference during on-shelf storage.
After October 27, the Marvel Select Bleeding Edge Iron Man figure will be made available on disneystore.com, and will begin to make its way to Disney Store shelves in the U.S. and Canada.
Marvelshop.com carries a wide assortment of Marvel Select action figures, including several exclusive figures based on the comics and movies. Comic-based exclusives include the Savage Hulk, Winter Soldier and a Spider-Man vs. Electro box set, while movie-based exclusives include unmasked versions of Captain America from Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Spider-Man from The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Pick up the figure here!

Diamond Select Toys is unleashing their 59th assortment of Marvel Minimates on comic shops and specialty stores this week, and it includes the first-ever toys based on the All-New X-Men team in their all-new costumes!
s everyone knows, the All-New X-Men are the five original X-Men, brought from the past to the present day in their teenage years, and one of the first orders of business (after confronting the grown-up Cyclops about his extreme behavior) is new costumes! This assortment of Minimates features the new, color-coded looks in four two-packs: Cyclops with Marvel Girl, Beast with
Angel, Iceman with a Sentinel and a rare, short-packed Bobby Drake with a Sentinel. Build the entire original team in one fell swoop!
Each Minimate mini-figure stands approximately two inches tall and features a variety of interchangeable parts and accessories, including alternate heads and hair for Beast, Cyclops and Marvel Girl; flight stands for Jean Grey and Angel; an optic blast for Cyclops; an ice blast and an ice slide for Iceman; and an ice blast and ice block for Bobby Drake! Plus, the modern Sentinel has a blast base, detachable tendrils that can grab the X-Men and removable shoulder pads to become a classic Sentinel!
Whether you’re a fan of the characters, the book, or the new costumes, it’s a great week to swing by your local comic shop and pick up some mini-mutants! Check out the photos of the figures in action, then find your local retailer at ComicShopLocator.com
