Marvel Legends Captain America Shield

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 paint-work 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.

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.

Marvel Legends Iron Man Electronic Helmet

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 magnetised 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 nit pick, I noticed that the some of the paint will start to chip in heavy use.

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

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.

What I love the most is that these are beautiful quality items that let you dress like a Marvel character without it transcending into costume mania. It’s 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.

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).

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 excellent value and you’ll receive plenty of content for your buck.

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.

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 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 sizeable accessory so if you’re of a smaller build, you might struggle to wield it in cos play. On the other hand I’ll admit it looks very impressive on any mantelpiece.

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