Toy Fair 2016: A Second Chance at The Avengers Action Figures

As a collector of Marvel Legends (or really any modern action figure line), the hunt can be brutal. Miss a figure during it's retail window and you must pay the Ebay demons. Miss that hiked up run and a figure can rocket to upwards of 300 dollars within in a few years. Gone are the days when you could hit KB Toys and raid their 3 for 10 bin, containing generic repacks of all of Toy Biz's heavy hitters... Color Changing Ice Man, Removable Mask Venom, Color Changing Sue Storm (they really liked the color changing gimmick!)...they were all in there. Most of the time, if you missed a figure the first time around and the price jumped, you'd get a second shot at it. The packaging was different and the paint might have been slightly altered, but it was YOURS. Now, Hasbro might be giving us a hint at those glory days returning with a new wave of "Best of Avengers" containing all those movie stars you missed in Exclusive Walmart waves and boxed sets too rich for your wallet.

It's not known if this is a European Exclusive yet, but pre-orders are turning up for this set, complete with a Build-A-Hulkbuster, ensuring you can now have a full Avengers team in outfits that seem split between the first and second films. Included are Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, War Machine, Black Widow, Thor, Hawkeye and Loki. All figures are absolutely 6 inches...and they don't have little lights in their chests! The pre-orders state this is an "assortment" so we highly doubt it's another boxed set.
