Even MORE New Avengers Toy Reveals Part 5: First Official Hasbro Photo of Nick Fury?


While trolling the internets yesterday, I came across this, what appears to be our first official Hasbro photo of the upcoming Nick Fury figure, believed to be included in Wave 4 of The Avengers line (with the Chitauri).   Full photo after the jump.



The photo is pretty low-res, and judging by the Asian language text at the top, was clearly not intended for the US market.  We last saw this figure appear in the Toys R Us Times Square display.  This does indeed appear to be the same figure.  The body appears to be a repainted Winter Soldier from the Captain America line, with a new head, arms and jacket.  Not very accurate to Sam Jackson's costume in The Avengers, but I gotta say, it doesn't look bad.  And that Winter Soldier buck at least includes more articulation than most of this line.  I had hoped that the figure would also include the Tesseract with brief case, but that doesn't appear to be included.


It's unknown at this time when this figure will be released, but we should be seeing it when the Wave 4 pre-orders eventually go up at the online retailers.

  2. It looks better than the one that came in the TRU exclusive Iron Man set. I am sick of the M-16 with grenade launcher accessory! I would love to go to Hasbro and destroy the mold!

  3. Yep, I'm sick of that M-16. Go destroy it for me, too.

  4. At least we get a new missile launcher, and though we all hate those pieces of crap, at least Fury actually USED a missile launcher in the movie. Unlike Captain america, Iron-man, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Thor... Well, you get the point.

  5. I think I'll use an M-16 with a grenade launcher to destroy the mold for the accessory. Seems fitting. ;D

  6. Oisin, you're right, at least Fury used a missile launcher in the movie, but I'd rather the accessory wasn't a spring-loaded shooty piece of junk. I'd be happier with just a plain old realistic looking RPG.

    G-8, I like the way you think.

  7. Anyone ever wonder why Fury is using a 20th century style Mauser? Is he Han Solo? (that's the gun Han has, just Han's has a sci-fi looking scope) It's just a gun used for the Cap movie series Winter Soldier, and not a very good looking one at that. So while you guys destroy the mold for the M-16, mind getting rid of that mold too? Use a Mauser if you like! ;)

    1. Yeah I noticed the gun, too. I think since most of the figure is a recycled Winter Soldier, they just went ahead and recycled the Mauser, too. It's lame, but easily replaced if you have any extra G.I. Joe pistols laying around. If not, check out Marauder Gun Runners. They rule. http://www.marauderinc.com

    2. Bought from them before, they do rule! What type of gun does Fury even use though? I would say just a secret service/spy type pistol?

    3. I think he uses a .45 in The Avengers, but I could be wrong. But Sam Jackson is a B.A.M.F. so I think you could even get away with giving him a Desert Eagle.

      Marauder has a couple "fix it" sets that each come with a handgun, a knife, and a grenade. Seems like a good loadout for Fury. Check the new releases: http://www.marauderinc.com/servlet/Categories?category=**NEW+RELEASES**

    4. Awesome find, thanks!!

      Oh yeah, just thought of why he has the Mauser. The holster from Winter Soldier was made for a Mauser and would not fit a normal gun since the barrel would be bigger. So Hasbro being too lazy/cheap to sculpt a new holster for another, better, gun would just leave that one.

  8. I call dibs on destroying all the missile launcher molds! And you'll never guess what I'll use to do it. Hells yeah!

  9. The Mauser doesn't surprise me. To paraphrase Nick, "It's a stupid ass decession!"

  10. That was one of my favorite lines in the movie.

  11. Wow that's a must have and thats not the mu standard m-16 that's the much better m-5 that came with crossbones and also the winter soldier from the 2 pack

  12. Anyone here seen "How The Avengers Should Have Ended"? If so: "Say what again! I dare you! I double dare you!" lol

  14. I stand corrected and I should have recognized that this wasn't the standard version. Still, Hasbro needs to lay off including anything that resembles an M-16 with MU or comic book related characters. The Mauser is an interesting looking weapon but it doesn't go with Director Fury.
