Two of the world’s greatest superheroes go head to head in this pack, which features movie likenesses of Batman and Superman. Standing at an impressive height and weighing a pound between them, these are two hardy toys ready for action!
Spider-Man is a perennial favorite, with recent films serving to reinforce his popularity, and this action figure is sure to be too. It’s not as flexible as some others out there, but it’s big and tough enough to survive battle with any age boy.
Alongside nearly a dozen figures, there are a whole load of weapons and three different vehicles, enough for some pretty dramatic fight scenes! Boys of all ages will love tearing into battle with all these great characters.
Big enough for any battle and sturdy enough for whatever your boy can throw at him, this action figure is a must-have for Hulk fans. Articulation is simple, but it’s a good size, looks awesome, and stands up well—smashing!
Available in a well-articulated 6 inch form or a sturdy 12 inches, this action figure is ready to fight! An underrated Avengers member, Black Panther is sure to become a firm favorite with your boy in no time.
Protagonist of the hugely popular Skyrim video game, the Dovahkiin comes to save the world from an ancient and terrible dragon. This action figure is fitting of such an epic quest! Clad in Nordic leather and metal armor, he looks brilliant and stands well on his own.
The real draw for these two is the level of detail in the figures and the number of ways they can be displayed—both come with interchangeable hands, while the Flash sports two heads and Arrow, appropriately, with a bow and arrow. Great for boys who want to have their figures adopt a myriad of poses.
A phenomenon after the hugely successful 2016 film, Deadpool is a wise-cracking, butt-kicking hero like no other, and this is an action figure to match. Perhaps suitable for an older boy, armed as he is with twin pistols, he also boasts incredible detail and 16 points of articulation, making him an incredibly versatile figure. There’s even a shot-up, brick wall base to display him on.
Alongside classic names like Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker are generic troopers and a few minor characters, and each figure comes with its own accessory. At under four inches, they’re not the biggest, but the variety is good and the accessories combine well with other figures. A great starter for aspiring young Jedis!
