I love the Hasbro Black series stuff, I have an Iron Man helmet, Cap shield and Infinity Gauntlet. For the money (sometimes as low as £50) they are the best way to get into collecting or in my daughters case, wearing the helmet of your favourite superhero.
They are made of hard plastic but have loads of detail and are well painted.
On the Ant-Man one you take off the respirator to access the battery compartment. For this one the batteries power coloured LED’s to make them blue or red.
Inside we have the usual plastic adjustment to fit to your head size.
The antenna come separately in the box and require fitting.
If you’re an MCU fan that wants a great looking prop for your shelf then I can’t recommend these highly enough.
If you’ve followed me long enough you’ll know I’m partial to the Hasbro legends series of props. I’ve got the Captain America shield and Infinity Gauntlet but wanted to complete my MCU phase 3 collection with one I’ve been after for a while.
It’s been out since 2016 but was stopped production for a while. Well this year it came back and I managed to score one using Forbidden Planet.
It’s wearable and is made up of a couple of parts. The main helmet and removable faceplate.
The faceplate is attached with magnets and you makes some noise once attached. This’ll need three AAA batteries if you want the ability to do the electronic stuff.
Once attached the eyes glow, you can adjust the brightness of this if you are wearing it for cosplay. There’s a button inside the helmet to adjust this.
It’s made up of hard plastic and sports a really nice (but fragile) paint job. It’ll easily scratch so be careful if you want to keep it in pristine condition.
For me getting a prop you can display for under £100 is a steal and I’m constantly impressed with how good the Hasbro Legends series is for the money.
Next up, Ant-Man.
I’m slowly but surely filling my home office with stuff I love, thought I was time to get some Marvel props. The Marvel Legends series are made by Hasbro and offer an affordable high quality replica of your favourite film props. I’m planning on wall mounting this one, more on this in a later post.
Here are some images of the unboxing:
