#33: Avengers Minimates - Loki and Nick Fury

And now, the final (and most important?) Minimates set from the Avengers movie. Like Black Widow and Hawkeye, this is a Toys R Us exclusive set. Because of course the villain and Samuel L Jackson should be more limited releases. Aside from completing the set, I would have to get this set anyway because it's Loki rocking his awesome helmet and Samuel L Jackson. There are no spare accessories in this set, aside from a stand. I think it would have been nice to have a hair piece for Loki, because although that helmet is so badass, he was frequently without it during the movie. He does include his staff, and Nick Fury gets a rocket launcher as well as a pistol that holsters on his leg. His coat is drawn back for easy access to the pistol, so hooray for functionality.

Thanks to Hasbro never releasing Nick Fury in the 3.75 inch scale (outside of that box set that I have yet to see cheap enough to justify solely for that figure), Mace Windu will have to stand in for Nick Fury here. What if Mace Windu were in charge of SHIELD?


  1. If Mace Windu were in charge of S.H.I.E.L.D. he would single handedly defeat Loki, only to be thwarted by Black Widow cutting off his arm, and then Loki would blast him out of a window with lightning.

    Respect the classics.

  2. That box set is down to 17.98 or something, and I can't decide still. Would like the drones for my Iron Man junk.

  3. Damn, that's a good set- Loki's helmet alone is worth the price of admission!
