Most of the recent Marvel movies have offered up decent versions of the characters in Avengers - Age of Ultron in their respective figure lines.  There are versions of Black Widow, Nick Fury, Black Widow, Thor and War Machine (provided he plays a role in the film) that would all be reasonable figures to reissue if Hasbro had moved forward with a fully articulated 3.75" figure line.  And this new version of Iron Man is a good representation of the new Mark 43 armor.

So who does that leave?  Hawkeye (new look), Captain America (new uniform), Hulk (not done well previously), the twins, Ultron and the Vision.  All told, it wouldn't have been that crazy of a line to build had Hasbro pursued it.

I agree - would have been awesome to see them make a MCU Ultron in the Infinite line style...

Found a three pack of 5POA Age of Ultron figures today at Target - it contains:
  • Mark 43 Iron Man which a MUCH BETTER paint job than the single carded figure
  • "Busted Up" Ultron (from the trailer)
  • Ultron 2.0 with clear-red forearms

The Ultron 2.0 figure looks like it's the same mold as the single carded Ultron 2.0 figure that's coming out soon - only difference is the fact that the forearms are clear red.

Hopefully finding the Loki, Iron Legion, War Machine and Scarlet Witch figures from Wave 2 of the 5POA 3.75" line won't be hard to find in stores - I was thinking that the Ultron would be hard to get, but since I have this version from the 3-pack, I really don't care if I get the single carded version or not.

So it turns out that TRU has a pair of exclusive 2-packs for Avengers - Age of Ultron.  And they're in line with the Avengers Infinite line, since the figures are 3.75" scale with good articulation.  One set features Cap and Black Widow.  Cap is a reissue from the Winter Soldier line, but with the regular deco shield.  And the Black Widow seems to be a re-decoed version of the figure offered in the first Avengers line.  The winner in these sets though, is the Iron Man and Nick Fury 2-pack.  Iron Man is a new figure, depicting the Mark 43 armor.  Fury appears to be similar to the version offered in the first Avengers movie figure line.



These are selling for $19.99 each.  And right now TRU has a BOGO 40% off sale.

I was in TRU yesterday and saw a pack with Hawkeye and Falcon in it. I had never seen or heard of it before, and they only had one on the shelves. Should have grabbed a picture. Both appeared to be repaints of older movie figures.

I found that on Amazon just now:

Marvel Avengers Age of Ultron Movie, Exclusive Hawkeye and Falcon Action Figures, 3.75 Inches




With the exception of Iron Man and the Black Widow repaint, everything in these 2-packs have been reissues.  I was hoping that we might at least get a Hulk that's somewhat in scale with the 3.75" figures, but I'm not holding out hope.

$40?!  What?  Is this supposed to be a TRU exclusive?  I found it on the TRU.UK site.  Are these more like the 5 POA Avengers figures like the scarlet Witch figure or the more articulated figs that would fit in with the Marvel Infinites line?  I cannot tell from the pics - almost seems like a cross between the two.  I never got the Falcon from the Captain America line, so might be interested in grabbing this...if I can find it for about half that price.   ::)

No.  This 2-pack is a straight repack of the Hawkeye figure from the first Avengers toy line, and Falcon came from the Captain America - The Winter Soldier toy line.  You can probably find that Falcon at stores like 5 Below.  You can also find that Falcon on Amazon

Thanks Nick.  No difference in paint aps that you know of either?  Much cheaper to pick up the first versions if they're identical.

I haven't seen the 2-pack in person.  But based on the image above?  Yeah, this set looks like a straight repack.

But in these sets, what about the Hulk?  What about Thor?  What about the Maximoff twins or the Vision?  And most importantly?  What about ULTRON!?!?!  Those are the figures that I really wanted to see with good articulation in this line of 2-packs.

I took a look at the Falcon from the Captain America - The Winter Soldier line and compared it with this one.  The only difference I found with this 2-pack version is that there are some very small red markings on the wings.  Otherwise, it's the exact same figure.
