Apparently, Lego mini figures were relatively new when I had them as a kid.
I was at the grocery store yesterday with my 3½-year old son, and he stopped as we passed a bin of balls. Most of them were solid or mottled, but he immediately picked up the Avengers ball, plastered with the logo and the heroes.
He turned it around for a bit, looking it over, then looked up at me and asked, “Where’s the Black Widow?”
I looked at it myself. Thor, Iron Man, the Hulk, Captain…
I don’t mind the super-deformed shapes or even the mix of Wally’s eye lenses on Barry’s costume… But slapping a New 52 label on a series where Superman still has his red underwear, Batman has his yellow oval, Flash’s belt is straight and no one has seams, armor or collars?
Full set of Justice League Hot Wheels cars, unless there’s a sixth I can’t remember. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, and Green Lantern.

30″ Darth Vader. Fun for toddlers, and parents, too.

And no, the head doesn’t come off. Not unless you really work at it, I imagine.
