Re: AVENGERS - movie Discussion, News, Interviews, Pics till release 2

Some toy designs have surfaced. I assume in preparation for the Feb NY toy show.
3.75" figs - No Widow or Hawkeye sadly.

Not sure what to make of the "Hydro Hammer" action Thor. Is that to mimick a scene in the movie or just a standard non-related variant that sometimes happens?

5" figs

I love the Hulk figure. Yeah they're most likely going to promote the big four. Even though Scarlett Johansson is a big star, Black Widow is probably known only to hardcore comic book characters. Same with Hawkeye. Which is why Marvel is pushing these two in their books. The Loki figure is awesome too.

Here's more images from Bleeding Cool and apparently you can pre-order the Lizard ASM figure from Big Bad already.

Those are some pretty good action figure designs, although I wish we could get a better look at Hawkeye and Black Widow.

Just a tid bit regarding Hawkeye and 'Tasha...there are youtube videos from NYCC last year that displayed the figures. They looked really good from what I saw. Especially the Hawkeye one. I'm sure we'll see pics of them soon enough.

^ Sammy yep. That's what I was referring to! Great timing The more I see that Hawkeye figure along with the art work we've seen the more he continues to remind me of Ultimate Hawkeye.

New Avengers promo envelopes from Asia. Looks like all the characters have their own logos for them as well. Some obvious, some not. Stark has a SHEILD logo for his. Tasha has a weird hourglass logo for hers. I'm assuming Banner's is a radiation atomic logo thing.

An hourglass isn't an odd symbol for Tasha. It's long been the imagery associated with a Black Widow, the actual insect and Tasha.
They look like the money envelopes you'd get at the bank.

I'm not the most hardcore Black Widow fan...I've only become a fan of hers in the last couple of years, so I didn't know about the hourglass logo. That's pretty cool. Joss using his comic knowledge I guess

The "Hourglass" is supposed to be the red mark that's one Black Widow spiders. That's why she has it as her symbol.

that's not a SHIELD logo on Iron Man's. it's the triangular arc reactor from his suit overlaid on a round one.

You can also see the hourglass symbol on Black Widow's belt buckle in both Iron Man 2 and The Avengers (based on various stills).

As noted it's been standard on her for decades.
Examples for you and anyone else perhaps not as familiar with Natasha as the Black Widow from the comics.
Take note of her belt. You'll also notice her wrist gauntlets are nearly identical in design to what we've seen in IM2 and the Avengers publicity photos to date EXCEPT for the gold coloring.
Personally I'm hoping Tony touches those up for her at some point.
