Hero Collector Announces Second Wave In Their Marvel Heavyweights Collection

by Gary Catig

During New York Toy Fair, Hero Collector announced their new toy line, Heavyweights, which would feature characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. These hand-painted collectibles are 1:18 scale, standing between four to five inches tall, and are cast in metal. They have a detailed likeness to their on-screen counterparts and come packed in stylish collector’s tins with the character’s logo and movie of origin. The first wave is scheduled to arrive this September and includes Groot, Captain America, Spider-Man, Iron Man and Black Panther.
Now, Hero Collector has announced who will be joining the collection in the second wave: Ant Man, Captain Marvel, Star-Lord and War Machine. Check out their images and profiles below.
Ant Man, the smallest hero around! Scott Lang, ex-con and single father, was hand-picked by genius scientist Hank Pym to keep his awesome technology out of HYDRA’s clutches. The figurine is clad in his iconic shrinking suit from Ant Man, complete with his insect-like helmet.

Captain Marvel, the mightiest Avenger of all! Gifted with incredible cosmic powers by alien technology, Carol Danvers spent years as an amnesiac Kree warrior –only to reclaim her past on Earth. The figurine is cracking her knuckles after the battles she faced in Captain Marvel.

Star-Lord, the leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy! Abducted from Earth as a child, Peter Quill has roamed the galaxy ever since as a legendary outlaw… at least, that’s what he says. The figurine poses with the guns he used to fight Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War.

War Machine, the armor-plated patriot! Frustrated by Tony’s irresponsible antics in Iron Man 2, Colonel James Rhodes stole and modified an Iron Man suit to become an armored Avenger in his own right. The figurine is wading into battle with all guns blazing –and that’s a lot of guns…

The Hero Collector Heavyweights will be found at Hot Topic, comic shops, specialty retailers, and directly from the Eaglemoss shop online. Wave 2 is scheduled to be released in early 2021.
