[[wysiwyg_imageupload:1543:]]The Avengers have assembled!
We stopped by our local Target and picked up The Avengers Mighty Battle Skill & Strategy Game, some HeroClix Avengers figures and a 12 pack of The Avengers Dr. Pepper.
You can check out the videos below of our little unboxing party with Matthew and Brayden!
The Mighty Battle Board Game (Jakks Pacific) is pretty cool. You have The Avengers on one side, and the Skrulls on the other. The Avengers win by taking out all the darn and dirty Skrulls, while the Skrulls only need to land two of their own on the same pad that the Cosmic Cube stands on. Beware mighty assemblers! Your weapons of choice must not harm the Cosmic Cube or the game is over!
Fun game, took about an hour to play, and all the figures and pieces are of high quality.
The HeroClix are a real hit. We got Captain America, a Skrull and Agent Coulson! No idea how to actually play, but they work sorta as "action" figures for the little guys.
Regarding the Dr. Pepper cans, unbeknownst to yours truly, ALL the cans in the 12 pack are the same. That's okay — 12 drinks with Scarlett Johansson sounds fine with me!
The Avengers movie assembles May 4th, 2012 and is directed by Joss Whedon, starring Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye.
