Toys R Us is sharing some figures with the comic shops, a some slight variations. The TRU wave has 3 sets; Captain America and Thor, Iron Man and Black Widow, and Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. The twins is the only set that is exclusive to the TRU wave. The whole wave is light on accessories, but the figures likenesses to the actors is done well.They all sport their updated film looks, just enough to make all the sets worth picking up.
I have to say there is not much here, at the first look, but looking at the little details on Thor and Iron Man’s armor, the slight variations on Cap and Black Widow’s costumes, and the Twins make these an easy buy for collectors. Cap and Iron Man both come with their unmasked looks, while the others all are what you see is what you get. Cap and Black Widow both include the most accessories of all the figures, with three each. Buying more and more Minimates, it’s the subtle difference between the movie costumes that make them a must have for collectors.
I wish Iron Man came with a stripped down body parts or Wanda came with her hex blasts, but at least we got great likenesses to the next film characters. Iron Man and Widow are exactly the same at comic shops and TRU, but there have been reported minor paint variations to Thor, so depending if you want painted chest armor or not it comes down to personal choice. The ladies of this wave are the stand outs with clean paint lines, and details. Wanda above Black Widow is the best of the set, right down to the ripped legs stockings.
Now if you want villains you will have to head to comic shops and come back tomorrow for a look at the big bad himself, Ultron.
