The Coolest Toys Inspired by Avengers: Age of Ultron
Comic book fans will tell you that half of the fun of getting into comics is the fun toys you get to collect in the process. Since their beginning, toy designers have been releasing toys to coincide with their comic book counterparts and with the release of the latest Marvel film, Avengers: Age of Ultron, the tradition continues. Whether the toys are for a child or a child at heart, there is an incredible selection for the film’s release.
Funko Pop! Marvel Figures
Funko has been releasing their caricature-esque vinyl characters for pretty much anything with a cult following and the newest Avengers film is no different. The film’s release offers eight different characters: Iron Man Mark 43 (66), Hulk (68), Thor (69), Captain America (67), Vision (71), Black Widow (91), Hawkeye (70), and Ultron (72). Some characters have figures from other releases, so if you’re gunning for the set, be sure you pay attention to their numbers. Variant characters are also available, including a red-eyed version of Hulk.
Price: Approx $10.99/ea

Bandai Avengers: Age of Ultron S.H.Figuarts
Bandai has outdone themselves with the incredible line of action figures. These collectibles are highly detailed and feature Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, and Hulk. The characters are fully posable and are definitely not something you want little kids playing with – that is, if you even decide to take them out of the box.
Hasbro Marvel Avengers: Age of Ultron Titan Hero Tech
These super hero action figures from Hasbro offer kids (and adults) the technological experience with lights and catch phrases at the push of a button. Each of the standard figures measure in at 12 inches and come in Iron Man Mark 43, Thor, Captain America, and Hulk. To top it off, there’s a 13-inch interactive Hulk Buster character that responds to the characters nearby. Each 12-inch figure elicits its own response from Hulk Buster, encouraging you to purchase them all for the full experience.
Dragon Models 1:9 Age of Ultron Action Hero Vignette Building Kit
Dragon Models offers incredible to-scale representations of the movie characters. These figures feature an obscene amount of detail with specifications direct from Marvel. Best of all, you build them yourself, just like a model car or plane. Each character is prominently displayed in a Marvel-suggested pose allowing you to build your own Avengers army to thwart the evil Ultron. You’ll be able to build your own Hulkbuster, Ultron, Iron Man Mark 42, Captain America, Hulk, and Thor.
Hot Toys Avengers: Age of Ultron 1/6th Scale Collectible Figure
Hot Toys has managed to take the character likeness to a whole new level. The major toymaker recently announced their line of Avengers: Age of Ultron figures that are sure to impress even the most avid collectors. Among the figures, you’ll be able to collect Black Widow, Hawkeye, Hulk, Iron Man Mark 43, Iron Man Hulkbuster, War Machine Mark 2, Captain America, and Ultron Prime. The detail level is so intense that you can actually make out Captain America’s pores. If it weren’t for their miniature scale, you may very well think the super heroes are in your living room.
