Captain America - The First Avenger Sixth Scale Figure Review!
Well, today here at Heroesarentborn.com we’re reviewing Captain America, The First Avenger, from our friends at Sideshow Collectables and Hot Toys. Now, if you have never seen anything from Sideshow and Hot Toys you should know one thing, these figures are simply amazing. The level of detail that you see is almost on an unparalleled level. Such a huge difference from when I was a kid and all we had were those tiny GI Joes with the kung fu grip and a couple plastic weapons that you always managed to lose.

The Avengers, a review in way too many words…
A doctor gave a man six months to live. The man couldn't pay his bill, so he gave him another six months.A drunk was in front of a judge. The judge say,s "You've been brought here for drinking." The drunk says, "Okay, let's get started." There was a girl knocking on my hotel room door all night! Finally, I let her out. - Henny YongmanWhy did I start this review out with one liner or three from the late, great, Henny Youngman? Because that’s pretty much the sum total of the script for Marvel’s “the Avengers”. Everyone else is praising Joss Whedon for the script but to me it was one joke after another after another with a little substance sprinkled in here and there to fill in the gaps between said jokes. Now that I have that off my chest, I was going to wait another week or so for the lemmings to get their fill of this movie but the allure was just too great.

HASBRO Each line is definitely their own brand. However, we're excited about their convergence into one line in 2012. Stay tuned to Comicon for more Avengers news!
Now that the line has been refreshed as "Iron Man: The Armored Avenger", can we expect to see a more diverse assortment of figures rather than variations on the Iron Man armor? Agent Coulson, Pepper Potts, or Obadiah Stane perhaps?
Happy to hear what you like now and what you'll like about our future products! Keep the comments coming as we're always looking for ways to improve our brands.

"Heroes Aren't Born. They're Made."
Certainly a catchy enough tag line for Iron Man. It described his genesis perfectly. A self-absorbed industrialist seeing first-hand the horrors wrought by his weapons gives rise to a champion of the oppressed.
But he's not the only Marvel hero who was made.
Captain America found life through a serum that transformed a physically inferior boy into a supersoldier committed to the cause of good. Bruce Banner wasn't born the Hulk. It took gamma radiation to force Banner to learn self-control and how to harness his rage to benefit others. Even Thor, the GOD of thunder, was born arrogant and selfish. It took banishment to Earth to make him learn humility and true heroism.
"Heroes aren't born" isn't Iron Man's mantra.
It is the mantra of the AVENGERS.
That is why, as of today, this is no longer an Iron Man collectors' site. It is now an Avengers site, and we will be bringing you news and product reviews from the entire team with a strong focus on Thor and Captain America this summer.
Welcome to the new HEROESARENTBORN.COM!
THOR: The Mighty Avenger
While we continue putting the finishing touches on our new look, click HERE to enjoy our first unofficial Avengers-oriented review: "Sword Spike" Thor from Hasbro's 'THOR: The Mighty Avenger' action figure line.
One thing that seems to be lacking in the Iron Man line is a play set for the 3 3/4 line. When we were in New York this past February, the G.I. JOE THE RISE OF COBRA: PIT MOBILE HEADQUARTERS was a huge hit with Joe fans and collectors. Any chance we could see something smaller in scale to the Pit for Iron Man? We know you had the Target release Hall of Armor Collection but what about a Hall of Armor play set with lights and sound? Some of the Micro Play sets are great but we need some for the 3 3/4" line!!
We have a vehicle hitting shelves now that is smaller than the PIT, but has great 3 3/4" play features. Check it out!
One thing that Mandarin does not like is cherries. Despite this, he may allow us to take a picture of him.

The cards are meant as a stand alone element of the toy that can also be displayed on the stand.HASBRO
Aside from the upcoming Whiplash figure, can we expect to see any other non-armored or partially-armored figures in the Iron Man 2 figure line? Some good examples would be Iron Man and War Machine with flip-up faceplates, Rhodey, and Pepper Potts.
There are more figures planned for a Fall release. Most of these will premiere at the San Diego Comic Con - we hope to see you there!
Like the Galactic Heroes line, the "Iron Man 2 Super Squad" seems to be very successful with kids and collectors alike. Because of this great response, are you planning to continue these for Iron Man into 2011--even though it's a non-movie year?
Keep your eyes peeled! In 2011 Super Hero Squad figures will be revealed in various ways!

Review: War Machine (Iron Man 2)
Part of the Iron Man mythos since the dawn of the 1980s, War Machine was the alter ego of Lt. Col. James “Rhodey” Rhodes—Stark’s closest friend and the first person to set eyes on Iron Man outside of Wong-Chu’s camp (in the comic universe). Since the convoluted series of events leading to War Machine’s illustrated origins are not translatable to a two hour movie, the movie version strips away the extraneous circumstances and focuses on the widening rift between Stark, who wants to keep the Iron Man technology out of government hands, and Rhodes, the man who has to choose between loyalty to his friend and duty to his country. After witnessing a reckless alcohol-fueled display by a full-suited Stark, Rhodes absconds with the Mark 2 armor and delivers it to his superiors, allowing Justin Hammer and the U.S. military to transform the suit into their own version of Iron Man—War Machine.
On the heels of Iron Man 2’s blockbuster opening weekend, HeroesArentBorn.com is pleased to present this integral character as our third Hasbro action figure review. Enjoy!
Iron Man 2 $327 Million in 3 Days!
Iron Man 2 took in $133.6 million for the three-day frame domestically and $327 million Worldwide.
It now stands as the fifth highest opening weekend ever
