Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers Toys...Gotta Avenge 'Em All!

Ah, it's a good time to be an Avengers fan. A bad time to be an Avengers and tabletop gaming fan with little cash.

Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers was announced a couple of months ago, and while there's no sign of the final anime product yet, the toys tied-in with the anime are now up for preorder at BigBadToyStore.

The toys themselves are as kiddie as all get-out, Happy Meal-ish even, but I think that's part of the charm. I like the designs of Captain America and Thor, at least. And they look like they have decent enough articulation. There are some sort of disks included with the figures, and there are some robot-looking things which I'll assume is what you'll be using the disks for. It all spells "collectible game", which also spells "money sink" for children and the parents who'll eventually be persuaded into buying it for theirs.

No details on how big, how much, or how addictive this might be yet, but if you've been waiting all your life for a Bakugan-like version of the Avengers you can play with, 2014 isn't that long a wait.
