We recently posted about the new Avengers Age of Ultron Series 2 Collectible Set from Hot Toys and they look pretty cute (especially Black Widow!), but if you’ve been wondering what they’re like up close and personal, we have good news. Sideshow Collectibles sent us the Avengers: Age of Ultron Collectible Set for review.
If you’re unfamiliar, Cosbabies are wacky vinyl baby heroes from Hot Toys—the same company that brings us all of those ridiculously detailed sixth-scale figures. Cosbabies, on the other hand, measure 9.5cm tall and have bobble-heads. So, rule #1, don’t take them out of the pack by their head or you’ll accidentally behead Captain America like I did. However, the cool thing is that if you pop their head off, they’re held on by a magnet, so it’s a pretty easy fix.
While many of the Cosbabies are sold separately, this collectible set features 7 Cosbabies: Iron Man Mark XLIII, Captain America, Thor, Iron Legion, Ultron Sentry, and a Ultron Sentry (Prime) which is only available in the set.
In the end though, these figures are all about fun. They’re cute, fit on your desk with ease, and come out to about $12.50 a figure, which isn’t bad at all for what you’re getting.
I took some pictures of the Cosbabies “in battle”. It got tense there for a minute, but let’s just say the good guys won.
Check them out after the break.
