Captain America: The Winter Soldier 1/6-scale Falcon from Hot Toys

Last year’s cinematic hit Captain America: The Winter Soldier drew upon the superhero escapades of one of Marvel Comics’ most lauded figures. And along with protagonist Captain America and Black Widow, Falcon collaborates to shed light on a S.H.I.E.L.D. conspiracy and dodge the jabs of an enigmatic assassin known as the Winter Soldier. Also known as mainstream comics’ first African-American superhero, it’s clear that Falcon is incredibly important to the Captain America and Marvel narratives.

We’re proud to present this Sixth Scale Falcon, who stands 12 inches tall and is crafted according to the on-screen appearance of actor Anthony Mackie. Highlights include a finely detailed costume, an LED light-up flight backpack, his signature mechanical wings, weapons and a figure stand created for flight poses. Don’t miss the chance to own one of Captain America’s most crucial allies.

(We’ve also got the Movie Masterpiece Captain America and Steve Rogers set, as well as the Sixth Scale Stealth S.T.R.I.K.E. Captain America — check them out!)

Every great superhero needs an equally heroic ally, and Falcon's that guy.

ArtFX Hawkeye’s arrow is poised for total conquest

Here, Hawkeye is 7 inches tall in perfect 1/10 scale, set to join Captain America, the Hulk and Black Widow on the Avengers ArtFX team. Conceptually designed by talented figurine artisan Adi Granov, Hawkeye AKA Clint Barton is the sleekest and most modern he’s looked since 1964. Vibrant, royal purple and black help this former-criminal-turned-good-guy take cover and shoot from his quiver with ultimate precision. Justice is served.

Avengers 2 Sequel is coming

Avengers Cosplay Figures

We just took off work (don’t worry, we packed up all the orders before we left) and watched the Avengers movie this afternoon.  It was a very good Marvel movie.  Audiences have rated it an extremely high 9.0 on IMDB, and 96% of critics like it or love it.  I could definitely watch this awesome flick again, expect significant repeat viewings after a huge weekend opening.

Who is my favorite character?  Legolas….no, I meant Hawkeye.

**SPOILER ALERT** The Avengers end credit scene introduces us to Thanos, who smiles when he’s told that to attack Earth is to “court death”. Thanos in the comics is fascinated with death and nihilism. He kills millions on his home planet with nuclear bombardment before travelling to earth. He is capable of superhuman strength and can absorb and project vast quantities of cosmic energy, enough to obliterate planets. His most famous storyline sees him gain possession of the Infinity Gauntlet, recently glimpsed in the Thor movie (in Odin’s trophy room). Each gem of that gauntlet grants its bearer complete mastery over one aspect of the universe: Time, Space, Mind, Soul, Reality, or Power. We know that Thanos is not a villain in Iron Man 3, and appears unlikely for Thor 2. So it’s fairly safe to assume the set up is for the next Avengers movie.  So maybe exepct to see Warlock somewhere too….

Smell like an AVENGER

From Comics Alliance comes a preview of these amazing AVENGERS perfumes. I’ve been looking forward to the film and have often thought that I wanted to be one of the Superheroes, but until now hadn’t figured out a way to smell like one. Now, given what they spend most of their time doing, I’d imagine they mostly smell like sweat, but let’s pretend.

Of course, I’m still waiting for a Black Widow perfume, but I won’t hold my breath.
