There are several named SHIELD agents.  Obviously, Nick Fury, Black Widow & Hawkeye.  And you could probably include Maria Hill and Coulson in there, too.

As for a Helicarrier pack-in figure?  One does seem likely.  Hasbro did include that Iron Man figure with the Quinjet.  But I took a look at that particular Iron Man, and it is a CRAP figure.

Having seen the movie, there are definitely some things I'd like to see in this line.  Will they happen?  Who knows.

BASIC FIGURES
Nick Fury - seems to be on the way, but when?
Captain America - new uniform, maskless (Helicarrier battle)
Thor - minus cape & armor
Loki - captive (minus armor)
SHIELD Agent Maria Hill
SHIELD Agent Phil Coulson (with Destroyer gun)
Chitauri warrior
Chitauri leader
Thanos

DELUXE FIGURES
Tony Stark with snap-on armor
Iron Man with cruise missile
Bruce Banner & Hulk

Anyone seen the 6" Avengers at Wal Mart?  I'd like to get a set...my Wal Mart looked like a bomb went off in the toy aisle today...even though it is a Super Store, for some reason they don't carry all toys and never ever have many of the exclusives...**** I hate Wal*Mart

Anyone got loose pics of the WM Exclusive 6" figs?  Wanna see the Hulk's scale compared to the rest of them before commiting.

I really want to get a set of those WM "Legends" figures, but $200 for the set?  Yikes.  The problem is, our local store doesn't really seem to get these in (aside from the IM 2 ones).  I sort of wish Hasbro just put these out mass retail, similar to what Mattel does with the Movie Masters stuff.

Well, a few weeks into release now, and I'd say that the Avengers stuff is selling better now.  However, I do still see plenty of action figures on the pegs, but the role play and LEGO stuff is really starting to get wiped out, at least here locally.  I don't know if it is because kids probably already have figures of Cap, IM, and Thor from previous movie lines - or if kids in general don't care about action figures as much anymore - but if a movie as broadly successful as Avengers can't move figures, what can?  Price may have a bit to do with it as well, although there have been sales.

Lego and role play are in short supply here as well, though I can't tell if its because its selling so well or if they just didn't get much in. I have never seen more than a few lego sets per store including the home location and end cap.

I haven't seen them mentioned; if so I missed it and am being redundant, but I saw some Avengers 4 Packs exclusive to Wal Mart.  There were two sets; one with Black Widow, Cap, Thor, and Iron Man, and another with Hulk, Loki (version from the Frost Giant set), Hawkeye, and another Iron Man.  I picked up the Hulk one for the Hulk and the Loki.

looks like there is another set now too, from user Dragonkings over at marvelousnews.com



all look like sculpts from the previous lines, except I am trying to figure out that Iron Man...

guess we can scratch looking for a "King Loki" from the Thor line off our lists - looks like this one has a better paint scheme.

I saw the set with Black Widow, Captain America, Iron Man and Thor.  These two 4-packs are all comic figures, and look to be Marvel Universe repacks / repaints.

Saw the set with the new Hulk, couldn't bring myself to buy the set for 1 figure though.
