Round 2 and Captain Action Enterprises are pleased to announce the release of two more Marvel costume sets as part of the ongoing Captain Action toy line. The Classic Cover Series offers variant 1/6 scale costumes that celebrate special covers from the rich history of Marvel Comics.
The Captain America Classic Cover costume set spotlights the golden age with covers by Joe Simon & Jack Kirby, Ken Bald and Syd Shores. During these golden age stories, Captain Americaâ€™s shield had two extra stripes and this variant shield will be included in the costume set.
Four Classic Cover postcards each featuring a golden age cover will also be included.
The Mighty Thor, God of Thunder Classic Cover costume set showcases the classic 80â€™s series of adventures of Walt Simonson. At that time, after a devastating battle with the vicious Hela, Thor grew a beard to hide his unsightly wounds. This set will also include four postcards featuring classic covers by Walt Simonson.
â€œFor this holiday season, we’re really excited to offer these Classic Cover costume sets. We think these will appeal to not only our dedicated collectors, but to families and young fans.” said Dan Sabato, Director of Marketing at Round 2.
Captain Action, the popular superhero and “Master of Disguise” toy figure from the 1960s, returned to toy shelves this year along with new costume sets featuring Spider-Man and Loki from Marvel Comics.
Both characters were early members of Marvelâ€™s super-team The Avengers. Onscreen, both Captain America and Thor star in their own movie series and were also featured in the hit movie â€œMarvelâ€™s The Avengersâ€.
â€œWeâ€™re toy fans and comic fans, and weâ€™re exceedingly pleased to bring these passions together with the Classic Covers series, â€œ said Joe Ahearn of Captain Action Enterprises. â€œThe authenticity and eye for detail will just thrill comic fans â€“especially those who love the Golden Age or the Bronze Age.â€
The Cover Classic Series will only be offered in the basic format and will available at Toys R Us, hobby shops and comic shops in late October.
