As one might expect from our earlier photos of LEGO’s toy line for Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel Studios’ highly-anticipated sequel is a big bonanza for all sorts of toys and there was no better proof of that than Marvel’s main toy manufacturers Hasbro, who unleashed a slew of new Avengers: Age of Ultron toys at their annual Collector/Fan Event. SuperHeroHype is there and we have a bunch of photos to share in the gallery below.
The highlights of the line are the larger-scale Titan Hero Tech figures of the main Avengers–Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and the Hulk–as well as an Interactive Hulkbuster and, of course, the baddie in the title, Ultron himself. (We didn’t get to see these demoed, but maybe we can get some videos of these figures in action tomorrow. By the way, the Hulkbuster figure actually will interact with the other ones.)
Hasbro is doing something a little different with the playsets with something they’re subtitling Avengers HQ, which is a series of figures, vehicles and playlets that can be joined together to form the Avengers Tower (as seen at left). It’s a fun new form of gameplay, because each of the individual playlets can be bought separately, each with their own figures, but you can also then build up to the giant all-encompassing plates.
There’s also the usual role-playing toys that we’ve seen from Hasbro for previous Marvel Studios films and a variety of figures for kids of different ages.
Not completely tying into Avengers: Age of Ultron, Hasbro is also releasing an “Avengers Monopoly” set, so if you’re going to play Monopoly with the family, why NOT play with the Avengers (We have a feeling that it will be hard to beat whomever plays as Tony Stark.)
