UPDATE: THE AVENGERS Mysterious Aliens Revealed with New Toys

<font color=red>UPDATE:</font> THE AVENGERS Mysterious Aliens Revealed with New Toys

The aliens in the upcoming film, The Avengers have been revealed with the release of new images from the Toy Fair. The symbols on a dice and details on the figures suggest an often rumored alien race is indeed in the film.



Well well well, it looks like Skrulls could be in The Avengers after all is said and done. This is a toy product that Idle Hands snapped some photos of at the Toy Fair. You can clearly see some purple aliens that bear an uncanny resemblance to the alien creatures known as the Skrulls! Idle Hands' Paul Nomad had this to say about the images he took:
"SO...are the aliens in The Avengers Movie SKRULLS after all? You tell me! Why make a board game based on the movie and just randomly throw Skrulls in there? Does this mean they are absolutely in the movie? Of course not..but this is pretty convincing."


Idle Hands also points out that on the dice in the images below seem to sport symbols that are consist with the Skrulls.

Thanks to Hawksblueyes for the heads up





As you can see in these MTV Geek exclusive images, the enemy pieces for the game, while pink, will be very familiar to Marvel Comics' fans. To our eyes, theses little pink wonders from "The Avengers" Mighty Battle Skill and Strategy Game look like the spitting image of the shape-shifting Skrulls! While the Skrull's involvement in the upcoming film have been denied; this coupled with the recent Superbowl ad makes it very hard to argue that they don't play a large part.




Marvel's The Avengers picks up when an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security. And Nick Fury, director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. With director Joss Whedon at it's helm, and an ensemble cast including Chris Evans (Steve Rogers), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Chris Hemsworth (Thor Odinson), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff), Clark Gregg (Agt. Phil Coulson), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), with Tom Hiddleston (Loki), and Stellan Skarsgard (Professor Erik Selvig), the film releases worldwide May 4, 2012!

WolvieCBM - 2/10/2012, 3:28 PM
Nothing is revealed here. We've seen the aliens in the trailer and they don't look like these. We don't know who they are just yet. Moving on.
Wildaniel - 2/10/2012, 3:29 PM
Is there any information on these toys??? The dice has a picture of the aliens face and a cube, most be the cosmic cube.
luffycapri - 2/10/2012, 3:30 PM

MovieMaster - 2/10/2012, 3:31 PM

RunDTC - 2/10/2012, 3:35 PM

NerdyGeek - 2/10/2012, 3:41 PM
It's Annihilus. It's really obvious...



TheAmarilloBlack - 2/10/2012, 3:42 PM
SKRULLS!!!

Or...ATLANTEANS!!!

IMPERIUS REX!!!
Hawksblueyes - 2/10/2012, 3:43 PM
Sure looks like Skrulls. The purple means nothing. We seen in the trailer that the dudes are NOT purple. Could be thses guys also.

nowtheresaBATman - 2/10/2012, 3:43 PM
dumb purple horned faries I knew it!
ElBicho - 2/10/2012, 3:47 PM
Flying, purple people-eaters!?
JDUKE25 - 2/10/2012, 3:53 PM
Those are pretty lame, not gonna lie. A piece of paper launching a projectile to knock the purple dudes out.
THORGodOfThunder - 2/10/2012, 3:57 PM
Hmm looks like Skrulls but I dunno if that makes them in the movie or not

Hawksblueyes - 2/10/2012, 4:01 PM
Here you go nail.



Hawksblueyes - 2/10/2012, 4:05 PM
No problem.
sexfoodcomics - 2/10/2012, 4:06 PM
It's not the Skrulls. They already said its not the Skrulls. It's so the annihilation wave.
ClarkStark - 2/10/2012, 4:06 PM
@Gaston,

I dont know how. Its easier to just post it this way :(
sexfoodcomics - 2/10/2012, 4:07 PM
Plus the Skrulls would be a waste of an army if they are just fodder. Marvel would use them more like a secret invasion story line, not like this.
AlibiBreakfast - 2/10/2012, 4:07 PM
Those reallllllllly look like Skrulls to me.
xmen145 - 2/10/2012, 4:11 PM
stop denying that they aren't skrulls d bags!!! Just tell the people the truth! Marvel is killing people with the waiting pof the truth!
Hawksblueyes - 2/10/2012, 4:11 PM
sexfoodcomics: The Skrulls were a dominant force in the Marvel Universe and used in many excellent story lines, long before Secret Invasion.

ironman53 This is all nail's find. I just happened to find those two close up images after reading this article.
AlibiBreakfast - 2/10/2012, 4:12 PM
@sexfoodcomics Maybe the after-credits scene will set up a Secret Invasion storyline that would thread its way through IM3 & Thor 2, culminating with the Avengers 2? Just a thought.
Hawksblueyes - 2/10/2012, 4:14 PM
They actually look like Skrulls wearing Annihilus' armor. Who the Hell knows what these guys will be called and who the will be working for. Remember, they have been "redacted."

In this day and age of no secrets due to the internet, I have to tip my hat to Marvel. We have seen all sorts of news on these dudes and still don't know what we're looking at. Kudo's.
superotherside - 2/10/2012, 4:15 PM
Uhhhh... what? LOL, it would be funny if it did turn out to be them after all... lol.

The Trailer Showed Somethin Different

sexfoodcomics - 2/10/2012, 4:21 PM
I heard there are actually two races in the movie.
nowtheresaBATman - 2/10/2012, 4:22 PM
^lol Intruder
thetrojan - 2/10/2012, 4:23 PM
SKRULLS
THE EARLIER FOOTAGE FROM THE TRAILER MUST HAVE BEEN DESATURATED SO THEY DID NOT LOOK AS PURPLEY AS THEY ARE !!!!!

WHAT A GREAT DAY THIS IS!

i dont even care if this is a scam,its well done and worthy of the attention

SKRULLS!
thewolfx - 2/10/2012, 4:23 PM
skrulls are green not blue correct ?
BatSlam - 2/10/2012, 4:24 PM
i think that the toys there are skrulls but i dont think it is the same villians in the movie, look at that still, looks nothing like the toys in these images. but we will find out.
mgeoff88 - 2/10/2012, 4:25 PM
Those look like Skrulls.
knocturnalzen10 - 2/10/2012, 4:25 PM
i don't think they can call them skrulls because of legal issues
thetrojan - 2/10/2012, 4:26 PM
then right at the end,an alien ,mar-vell appears and shouts," look ", and points to a large kirby crackle and out steps THANOS !
And then we all melt!
SpiderFan35 - 2/10/2012, 4:27 PM
@ Ncreb: lol (love your avatar btw)

I agree with Hawks on the similarity to Centauris, maybe they just mixed a bunch of alien races together to make the movie aliens, that would also keep everyone guessing when they see bits and pieces.

These plastic guys have the ears but don't have lines on their chins.

And it is certainly possible they put in other stuff from the comics into a game that is not in the movie, look at all the villains that get put into video games based on CBM's.

@ Clarkstark: enough already dude, like Gaston said make an article or post the pics, we don't need to start a trend of people linking to other sites, oy.
Skrullman88 - 2/10/2012, 4:28 PM
@AlibiBreakfast maybe your right... I fell like the skrulls can be in it and at the very end one skrull is left behind shapeshifts into a shield agent stays behind sets up for a skrull invasion later on maybe a Jessica Drew cameo but not suited up
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 2/10/2012, 4:30 PM
Huh, look at that. A movie about an Alien Invasion. Not too many of those being made these days.
