Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!
The red plastic projectile being held by Hulk looks almost exactly like a Hasbro spring-loaded "blaster/cannon effect" used with Star Wars
Destroyer Droids. I guess Hasbro could have recycled it with some of the newer Avengers figures and toys. They've done that kind of thing before (reusing weapons and accessories from one franchise and toy line in others to save on new tooling costs).
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
