Marvel Legends Captain America Shield

Overview

Nothing beats this signature shield belonging to one of Marvel’s oldest and most iconic superheroes. This piece is essential for any Marvel collection. At 24 inches and with precise attention to detail, the Captain America shield replica is the ultimate gadget fit for cos play or to showcase in your home. The shield is made out of hard plastic, but with the addition of quality paintwork it could be easily mistaken for metal. The two leather straps add authenticity and a luxurious feel, making this replica feel like a true movie prop.

My Verdict

The only gripe I have with this product is that the straps are difficult to adjust. As a big guy, this took some getting used to. Overall, it still does the job if you use it for cosplay and/or to make a statement at Comic Con.

Overview

Genius, witty, cool. Those are just some of the words that describe Tony Stark/Iron Man in his full get up. Now Hasbro have given us the chance to wear his signature armor to battle nefarious enemies in style.

The manufacturers of the replica helmet deliver a quality product that does Stark Industries justice. It comes with a magnetized face plate that is 100% detachable. The brightness of the glowing LED eyes is impressive and the FX sound is dramatic. If I had to nitpick, I noticed that the some of the paint will start to chip in heavy use.

My Verdict

The price point of around $250 is great if you’re a serious collector of Marvel merchandise, but steep if you’re looking for a cheap replica for cosplay. That said, it’s a quality product worthy of investment if you’re looking for a priced item with longevity.

Overview

I’m obsessed with these Marvel Universe inspired leather jackets from BlingSoul. If you’re into fashion with a nod to your favorite superhero, this is a great twist on a classic piece of clothing. The jackets are made out of durable and weather-resistant material. Depending on the model you choose, it may be constructed using leather, faux leather and comparable fabrics. I opted for the Baine Winter Brown and it fits perfectly. As soon as I unboxed it, my room was filled with the scent of quality leather. The stitching feels strong so I know that this jacket is going to last in heavy use. There are plenty of pockets for your phone, wallet and keys.

My Verdict

I love that these are beautiful, quality items that let you dress like a Marvel character without transcending into costume mania. This jacket is super comfortable and walking down the street, you’ll feel cool and confident.

Tip: Make sure you order the right fit for your body type. If you like to layer your clothes, especially in winter, I’d recommend going up a size.

$224.99 $249.99

Overview

This is a limited-edition box set containing blu ray, blu ray 3D and digital copies of the best-rated Marvel movies. But it doesn’t stop there. You’ll also receive a cool LED lit replica of the Morag orb and other surprise gifts (I won’t spoil it). Perfect for Marvel fans who love their stuff!

If you’re looking for the ultimate Marvel DVD collection, this is it. The movies included in this 2nd edition are Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: The Age of Ultron and Ant Man.

Each Blu Ray also includes extended and never-before-seen scenes, Director’s commentary, documentaries, and screen tests with the leading actors. At around $200 on Amazon, it’s an excellent value and you’ll receive plenty of content for your buck.

My Verdict

The only drawback is that the disc holder isn’t the best quality. If you throw this boxset into a bag while traveling, the discs could fall out and get scratched. So if you buy it, keep this in mind and try not to knock it around.

All in all this is a dream for any movie buff or Marvel fan building a complete collection. The fun extra gifts will make you feel special and give you a unique insight into the production of these blockbusters.

Marvel Legends Series Infinity Gauntlet Articulated Electronic Fist

Not yet released & Free shipping
Last update was in: March 29, 2018 9:00 pm

Overview

A Marvel collection is never complete without the Infinity Gauntlet. I’ve seen cheaper replicas of this ultimate weapon in stores before, and frankly the quality has been disappointing.

Now Hasbro have introduced a modern replica that has finally satisfied my inner warlord. This 19.5 inch fist incorporates lights and sounds that mimic the movie effects. The 6 lit up infinity stones are intricately designed and shine beautifully in both light and dark. This product is stiff, but it gives just enough finger and fist movement for effective role play.

The downsides? It’s a sizable accessory, so if you’re of a smaller build, you might struggle to wield it in cosplay. On the other hand, I’ll admit it looks very impressive on any mantelpiece.

My Verdict

On the whole I’ve really enjoyed this product. It looks fantastic from all angles if you’re displaying it as a prop. The articulated fist locks into place, so it works well for adults if you do take it out to a convention or for role play.
