SDCC exclusive Helicarrier toy. FOUR FEET LONG. a whole foot longer than the retail version.
Wow... I'm still awaiting a toy like that where the figures can actually be to scale.

They'll need Pym Particles just to get in the door.

Sort of a crappy looking toy, really. And a "to scale" Helicarrier (or even a regular aircraft carrier) would be needlessly ginormous.

Did you guys know about this AWESOME Dr Pepper can set with all the Avengers?

I just finished collecting my own set. Took me a couple of weeks to find all eight characters, but now it is sitting on a table next to my computer! Score!
I've only been able to find Black Widow and Hawkeye. I saved one Hawkeye:



The nest is just a joke. I might put my Hawkeye action figure in it when he arrives- they said June, dammit! Where is he?

Black Widow and Hawkeye are on the Diet Dr Pepper cans.

In order to get the rest you have to look for the other Dr Pepper brands.

Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America are on the regular Dr Pepper cans.

Nick Fury is on the Dr Pepper Cherry cans.

Loki is on the Diet Dr Pepper Cherry cans.

It says so on the back of the box. You gotta look carefully.

I think Iron Man looks the best. It helps that he is my favorite Avenger.

I have a TON of Dr Pepper soda right now though. Will be drinking it over the next few weeks.

Re: AVENGERS: Grade, Reviews, Discuss, DVD & Sequel **SPOILERS**

While the rumors of Spider-Man appearing in The Avengers were pure fan-boy wishful thinking, there apparently was almost a small-scale sort-of crossover between The Avengers and Amazing Spider-Man movies.

At one point, the Oscorp building from the forthcoming ASM movie was going to be rendered into The Avengers NYC skyline. I think that would have been cool. It wouldn't have been anything glaring or obvious and not distracted from the movie, but for fan-boy purposes, it still would have been enough to place the new Spidey movies firmly in the MCU despite the fact that Spidey will never actually appear in an MCU movie.

Re: AVENGERS: Grade, Reviews, Discuss, DVD & Sequel **SPOILERS**

I know comic books dont seem to mind squeezing everything into one reality, but I dont see the need to add Spiderman to Avengers, keep the universe's separate, so they dont end up getting to the point where people ask "the aliens were attacking, NY, and where was Spiderman?"

It almost the crossovers that dont happen which are as problematic as the ones that do.

Take for example CSI NY and Without a Trace, WaT crossovers over with CSI, CSI spin-offs Miami which spin-offs off CSI NY, so logically WaT is set in the same NY as CSI NY, and yet it never makes mention of the CSI NY "Cabbie Killer".

You are now saying im being nit picky, and your right, but since there is no reason for Spiderman to show up in the Avengers, why open the movies up to such nit-picks?

That said no reason the Avengers movie reality, cant have an Oscorp building of its own, just in that reality that Norman Osbourne never become the character we know from Spiderman, because Peter Parker doesnt become Spiderman.

All that said, maybe the next reality can form around Spiderman, maybe the Daredevil reboot, can be part of it.

Daredevil's at Fox. Spidey's at Sony. No chance.

as for Spidey in Avengers, well, he IS an Avenger now.

and you get that kinda question in the comics. where was character X whilst all that shit went down in Character Y's comic. or sometimes X appears in Y's title and you then have to work out when the hell it happened in relation to X's stories...

I wish Spider-Man and Daredevil were under control of the same studio just so that they could share the Kingpin.

But I'm glad Spidey's not with Marvel. I've never liked the idea of making him an Avenger. I think he works better on his own.

I agree, Spiderman should be able to stand on his own, not need to be part of a wider verse, certainly not one as wide as the Avenger movie verse is. That said of course, Iron Man, Cap Am, and Thor have proven there worth in a movie of there own, so its unfair to see the Avengers cant hold there own. Even Hawkeye and Black Widow could carry a movie without too much extra help.

mine was of course an example, but yeah that kind of plot would work.

maybe that is ok in the comics, but I think the movies should try and avoid that.
