(London, UK – December, 2021) Hero Collector, creators of high-quality collectibles from across the worlds of pop culture, are rounding out the festive season for filmgoing fans and comic book collectors by revealing the next wave in their Hero Collector Museum series – replica artifacts belonging to the greatest Super Heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)!
Debuting earlier this year as part of an exclusive launch in Walmart stores, the first wave of Hero Collector Museum collectibles featured signature weapons, masks, and gadgets – such as Iron Man’s Arc Reactor, Black Panther’s mask, and Thor’s Hammer Mjolnir – brought to life as hand-painted collectibles.
“Hero Collector Museum was a tremendous success for us as a new imprint”, says Chris Thompson, Global Brand Manager for Hero Collector. “We’re always looking for new ways to capture fans’ imaginations, and these collectibles are a perfect showcase for some of the most-requested items in pop culture lore – especially a license with the enduring mainstream appeal of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
These highly detailed polyresin sculpts each stand between 6-8 inches tall atop a display stand, and come in a stylish windowed box – perfect for the shelves of fans and retailers alike. They represent Hero Collector’s continued expansion into retail, with new imprints and display-friendly packaging aimed at reaching a larger audience.
This next wave will feature three iconic items from the MCU: Spider-Man’s “Iron Spider” mask from the Infinity Saga, Iron Man’s nanogauntlet from the climax of Avengers: Endgame, and even Captain Carter’s Union Jack shield from the recent smash hit show, Marvel: What If!
The next wave of the Marvel Museum Collection will launch in Q1 2022 at retailers and online, to be followed by a third wave of releases in Q3 2022.
