A Toy Line Assembled
The Avengers is one of history's biggest hits at the box office, and with its plethora of memorable heroes, it's a marvel for action figure collectors. Hasbro took full advantage of the movie's giant cast, exciting character designs, and high-tech vehicles and accessories, producing a great assortment of figures to finally whet the appetite of long-patient fans.
Like previous Hasbro Marvel movie tie-in lines, the Avengers 4-inch line features figures produced in Comic, Movie, and Concept styles. Figures in the Comic style are based on traditional comic book appearances, while those in the concept style are based on more fantastic ideas and designs that fans typically haven't seen. The movie series captures each character as they appear on the big screen, often in various costumes throughout the film.
The Avengers 4-inch line also maintains a consistent numbering system across figures, making organization of the line quite collector-friendly. The following list details each of the figures in the 4-inch line, by number, with the appropriate series label in parentheses.
