SDCC-exclusive Avengers Mini Mighty Muggs.
Love the expressions, love that Giant Man appears to be just a regular size Mugg, hate that Comic Con always gets the best toys.
Also, it’s a pity there’s no extra-mini Wasp Mugg.

Remember how Tom Brevoort made this big thing a few months ago about how diversity is important but teams like the Avengers need to be composed of A-list heroes first and foremost? And there was a lot of discussion about how this kind of attitude perpetuates the overwhelming white/straight/cis/male/etc-ness of superheroes, because not only does it fail to take the historical disparity of majority vs. minority characters into account, but it never gives less established characters to become A-list in the first place?

Yeah, remembering that discussion right now. This is a “founding Avenger” themed set, clearly, so where the eff is Wasp?
