When Avengers: Age of Ultron merchandise hit the market, fans were outraged to find that the female characters were left out yet again (to be fair, so were Quicksilver and Hawkeye a lot of the time). Still, the nerd world raged (with good reason) at the lack of, specifically, Black Widow. Now, I could point out that technically there is an Age of Ultron Black Widow action figure, but honestly it’s so small and poorly made that it’s not even worth mentioning.
Still, while the rest of the world raged, I sat patiently because I knew that there was a good Black Widow action figure; she just hadn’t been released yet. Well, that’s about to change… Get ready to see the “B” Team of the Avengers get their own set of Marvel Legends action figures! Exclusive to Amazon, this four figure set (similar to the TRU-exclusive Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 3-pack) includes Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow, and, in an amazingly cool move, Bruce Banner. That’s right, not only is Black Widow getting her own action figure – the second ScarJo Black Widow in the Marvel Legends line – but we’re also getting a Mark Ruffalo Bruce Banner.
The 4-pack will sell for about the same price it would cost if you were able to buy each figure individually (figures usually sell for $19.99 each in stores and more online for the hard-to-finds). Since the set is an Amazon exclusive, it seems likely that it will be limited in quantity; but given that most of the world seems to not know of its existence (at least until this post), this may not be much of a problem if you pre-order now (click here to be taken to the sale page). Still, it’s a step in the right direction. If sales do well, we may see more female superhero toys, not just as exclusives but as standard releases, to go with future movies (did you know we don’t have more female superhero merchandise because executives believe it won’t sell? Let’s prove them wrong!). Who knows, maybe we’ll get a Scarlet Witch figure in the Civil War line (fingers crossed)…
