THE AVENGERS Helicarrier and Quinjet Toys
A member of The Red Shadows forum has the scoop on The Avengers toys that were featured at the 2012 UK Toy Fair today. Click the jump for details.
Dark Horse who is a member of the website The Red Shadows was on hand for the UK Toy Fair. Here is the images and his/her breakdown of what was featured.
Saw all the Avengers and Spidey stuff. Oh boy, is it bad. Articulation on the Avengers stuff has been cut way back across the line. Most have no body, wrist or ankle movement. The Spidey stuff all has T crotches. On the plus side, there are lots of vehicles coming out for the Avengers movie. The Justice jet gets an IM style repaint, there's a new Cap vehicle that looked like a small tank with wheels, the Quinjet and the [frick]ing HELICARRIER!
Helicarrier is three feet long, has the usual firing missiles and shit. Looks pretty good but is only big enough for the Quinjet to fit on it's runway. The Quinjet is pretty big. Only one figure can fit in the cockpit but it has other openeing panels and stuff. There were no new Avengers figures apart from what has already been seen.
The Spidey stuff is horrible, just repaints of the same buck. Lizard is ok, but the design of his head is crap. He doesn't have the long snout. Massive fail.
The only new thing I saw for SW was this year's big vehicle - the MTT. It's quite big, the main gimmick is the opening droid tray. It has the slow opening mechanism that the previous big vehicles has. It includes 20 battle droids and a crappy Obi Wan. Only four of the droids are articulated though. The rest are pre-posed shit. Kind of a con really as the blurb says "includes 20 figures" Unposable blobs of shit are not figures, Hasbro. Dark Horse
