The Avengers have Assembled! Avengers Movie Minimates Arriving Now at Toys "R" Us
April 2012 - Only days remain until Marvel's The Avengers hits U.S. theaters, but U.S. toy stores are already getting in some of the most fun Avengers toys we'll see this year! The movie-themed wave of Marvel Minimates is hitting Toys "R" Us stores now, with four two-packs featuring Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Nick Fury and Loki. Diamond Select Toys took the figures out on the streets of New York City to recreate their epic battle with Loki's Army, and they look even more spectacular in action! The Loki's Army Footsoldier and General and Maria Hill Minimates will be available exclusively at at comic shops later in May, so for now you'll have to make the Avengers fight each other, but judging by the trailers (and 50 years of comic books) that is apparently fairly common.
All Minimates are 2 inches tall with 14 points of articulation, and they come with numerous accessories and interchangeable parts. Hawkeye and Hulk each include an extra head, and Cap and Iron Man have removable masks.
