Adventures in Toy Shopping: Hasbro Avengers Assemble Animated Action Figures

24 08 2013

Scaling at about 3.75″ are these Avengers Assemble action figures based on the hit animated series on Disney XD. These figures have very nice packaging with comic art on the front of the card.

Here we have Captain America which is a reused figure from the Captain America First Avenger series just with light blue metallic paint job. Probably THE BEST recoloring on this figure to date.

Cap comes with a shield blast launcher. Note the reverseside of the shield cannot be attached to the arms of the figure. WTF?

You’ll need to grab an attachable Shield from another Captain America to complete this figure. Cap lacks a waist swivel and wrist and ankle articulation.

This version of the Red Skull maybe his best in the 4 inch scale to date. Loving the hat and overcoat that can be attached to the figure.

The Red Skull includes a flame thrower type of weapon.

This is a very cool figure with good articulation but needs a handgun and cosmic cube.

The invincible Iron Man looks to a be combination of different parts from earlier figures from the Iron Man 2 and Marvel Universe lines. The paint job uses a much plastic-looking colored red.

A thunder blade shield is included with Iron Man.

This figure looks great but lacks double jointed knees and wrist and ankle articulation.

Black Widow looks very cool with nice gold trims and cool head sculpt. I like how the hair has a little flare to it like its flowing in the wind.

Widow includes a inferno cannon.

Widow is by far the best of the line and has lots of right articulation points with exception of a waist swivel and ankle rocking. You’ll need to borrow a handgun from another figure (I chose G.I. Joes) to really complete this figure.

The body mold of this Black Widow is the same one from the Avengers Movie line. Note the different hands, belt and gold paint app differences.

Even thought Hasbro is just reusing molds, adding minor new parts, doing repaints, the line is solid. These are just showing in retail shops like Toysrus and are priced the same as Marvel Universe figures ($9.99).

Adventures in Toy Shopping: Hasbro Avengers Assemble All-Star Series Captain America

I first saw these a Toysrus for $9.99. Way too high for a 4″ action figure with not a lot of articulation (ball jointed head, swivel hips and shoulders). Next day, walked into Target and spotted them for only $5.99. The line includes Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America. I picked up good ol’ Cap.

The sculpt is pretty good. The paint job is very sloppy. I grabbed the best one I could.

He comes with a generic shield. Pretty positive its a reused part from the movie series.

You can flip the clip for the shield inward to peg the shield into the back of the figure.

Definitely not a great figure so I really don’t recommend paying $9.99. For $5.99, you can pick up your favorite Avenger.
