Avengers: Age of Ultron is the 2015 superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team the Avengers. The Marvels Studio movie is the sequel to 2012’s The Avengers and the eleventh installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). We’ll not only briefly cover the movie, but we’ll highlight some of the hottest Avengers Ultron toys for the coming Christmas season.
[ Spoiler Alert ] Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) and Bruce Banner try to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program called Ultron, but things go horribly wrong and it’s up to earth’s superheroes to stop the latest of a long line of Marvel villains from enacting his horrible plans. Ultron is a fierce bad-guy, and this conflict results in one of the most successful and exciting movies int he Marvel superheroes series.
The toys spun off from the Ultron movie include some of the characters appearing in Avengers and other Marvel movies, but of course the newest addition is the Ultron character. This well armored villain has powers that include superhuman levels of strength, speed, stamina, durability, and reflexes; flight at subsonic speeds; and various offensive weapons such as concussive blasts of energy fired from its optical sensors or hands and an “encephalo-ray,” which places victims into a deathlike coma.
There are many Avengers: Age of Ultron toys and playsets, some with great user ratings on sites like Amazon, and some with mediocre ratings. At Hottoyguide.com we don’t restrict ourselves to writing about only 5-star toys, but we try to exclude toys that clearly are not satisfying buyers. As always, you should always do your own research before buying.
This Age of Ultron / Iron Man playset is packed with adventure and fun for the kids looking for adventure. This set doesn’t just sit there – there are lots of things to do. First of all there is a really cool rotating Missile Launcher that you use to try to attack and destroy Ultron.
Then, if you are persistent in your attack you can capture Ultron in the grabber arms and send him through the trap door. Here’s where things get interesting. If you attach the Captain America Tower Defense playset (sold separately) you can then put Ultron in the path of a speeding Captain America on his motorcycle.
If you’re looking for something a little simpler, then this voice changing helmet is sure to keep your kid entertained.
Captain America and Black Widow are two of the main superheroes of the Ultron movie. These figures are articulated (meaning you can move their arms and legs) and they are almost 4 inches tall. Combine them with other action hero figures and you can relive battle scenes from the movie.
