Marvel has signed eFX to make a collectible line based on characters in the Marvel Universe to support the release of The Avengers May 4.
Products will debut in the first quarter and includ prop replicas from the upcoming film such as the Captain America shield, Thor’s hammer and a full-scale Iron Man Mark V mask. Additional Marvel-based collectibles will continue to roll out in the coming months.
"The Marvel universe is extraordinary, diverse and exciting, just like Marvel’s fans around the world, and we are really eager for them to see what we are creating with guidance and input from the Marvel team," says Bryan Ono, president of eFX. "Marvel’s comics and movies offer virtually endless possibilities for absolutely incredible prop replicas."
