“I KNEW IT!”
Before we even get past this first section, I know we already mentioned it, but please be advised of the impending *SPOILER ALERT* in this paragraph regarding ‘Avengers: Endgame’. So you’ve officially been warned!
While Marvel’s latest cinematic blockbuster has been bringing in the big bucks in theaters, its also been clearing out the wallets of many in the collecting community. This week the team at Hasbro announced an all new Walmart exclusive Marvel Legends figure from the hit film! The new exclusive 6″ scale figure gives us “Worthy” Captain America from the films climactic third act. Cap comes in his classic costume and includes both masked and unmasked heads, plus a broken shield and Thor’s mighty hammer Mjolnir! This figure has already been sighted in stores, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled in Walmart stores!
It took a full decade of films (with her character appearing in 7/22 movies), but in ‘Avengers: Endgame’ we finally saw Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts suit up in her very own set of armor as Rescue! It may have taken us quite a while to see her armored up, but the team at Hot Toys is wasting no time in bringing us a 1:6th scale figure of the heroine!
Hot Toys new 1:6th scale Rescue figure comes loaded with a ton of accessories and armor add-ons including both open and closed mask heads, removable armor pieces, and blast effects! It also features built in LED lights to bring Rescue to life in your display! Check the full release from Hot Toys below!
“We’re going to be okay. You can rest now” – Pepper Potts
Wearing the Rescue Suit designed by Tony Stark, Pepper Potts joined the Earth Mightiest Heroes in the final battle against Thanos and his army in Avengers: Endgame. Originally working as Tony Stark’s personal assistant, Pepper brought balance and order to Tony’s messy daily life, and subsequently became his love interest. Now, the wife of the super hero will strive to protect world order in her own sophisticated suit of armors.
Revealing one of the most popular characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Hot Toys is thrilled to introduce the 1/6th scale Rescue collectible figure as a new addition to the Avengers: Endgame lineup!
Beautifully designed with gorgeous detailing, the highly-accurate figure is crafted based on Gwyneth Paltrow’s big screen appearance as Pepper Potts/Rescue from the movie.
