Relive The Battle Of New York With Iron Studios Avengers Line of Art Scale StatuesJose Lopez
It’s been 10 years since fans were first able to witness The Battle of New York, a cinematic feat that was literally years in the making. Marvel was able to collide their standalone heroes and film franchises into the first Avengers film, culminating in a six-way team-up action sequence that left every viewer with their jaws on the floor. Now, Iron Studios is giving that iconic scene their own spin, announcing a set of interconnected statues that will come together, just as the movies did, to recreate the Avengers, well, assembling. All six 1:10 scale character statues are available for preorder now.
I love that Iron Studios has revealed the entire set of Avengers at once. While they could have definitely gotten away with building a slow burn, announcing the members of the team one by one, that would have done the nature of this team a disservice. Knowing that we, as collectors, will be able to own and display the entire group immediately is a huge part of the excitement in grabbing these.
Looking at all of six of these, it’s hard to pick a favorite. Each is sculpted in a somewhat simple character pose, but there’s enough dynamism present to make each avoid being boring. Every time I think I like Iron Man better, I look over at Hulk and fall in love, then I glance over at Black Widow and…
I absolutely cannot wait to assemble these Avengers and bring that first film to life in my display. The Battle of New York is one of the best moments in all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and brining it home is going to make it that much better.
Each member of the Iron Studios Avengers – Battle of NY 1:10 BDS Art Scale Statues is available separately for preorder, with Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye live now. The entire team is slated for release in Q4, 2022.
“Celebrating the 10th anniversary of this memorable battle presented in the movie The Avengers from 2012, the sixth movie in the MCU, directed and written by Joss Whedon, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios, where we watched the origin of the largest group of superheroes on Earth, Iron Studios proudly present their collection “Avengers Battle of NY – The Infinity Saga – BDS Art Scale 1/10”, made of a super limited edition of statues of the supergroup’s six original members, that compose a diorama set of one of the most memorable scenes from the movie, where they’re all gathered for battling for the first time.
Seeking to subdue Earth and become its only sovereign, Loki of Asgard, foster brother of prince Thor, joined forces with the titan conqueror Thanos through his servant known as “The Other”, that made available for the God of Mischief an army of the alien race called Chitauri, a sentient species of cybernetically enhanced beings that operate under a hive-mind intelligence, in exchange for the infinity gem known as Tesseract, a crystalline cube-shaped containment vessel for the Space Stone, that was under the protection of the Asgardians before, kept inside Odin’s Vault.
Loki teleported himself to S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters where he took control over the minds of Clint Barton, the Hawkeye, because of his fighting skills; and of scientist Erik Selvig, because of his Tesseract’s knowledge. Erik Selvig built a device installed at the Stark Tower, that together with the Tesseract stolen by Loki, opened a wormhole portal allowing his army of Chitauri and Leviathans to invade the city of New York. Called “The Incident” by the citizens, the Battle of New York is considered a monumental event in the history of humanity, that publicly confirmed the existence of extraterrestrial species for the people of Earth, where, for the first time, the Avengers stood together, ready to defend the planet.”
