NEW Toys!

Took a trip to Films & Figures in Chorley today and picked up the Diamond Select Chitauri from Avengers Assemble.

I had always steered away from the Chitauri, there was something about it in images that looked wrong. The figure always looked a bit cartoony, particularly the feet. However, upon finding him loose today in F&F (and for under a tenner) I took a punt - and can honestly say I am very pleased with this new addition to the Marvel shelf

I dont plan to do a full review on the Chitauri, but he has been photographed and added to the Marvel images page (2010-2014).

In brief, the figure is nice and heavy - as you would expect from Diamond. Articulation is limited due to his armour and general bulk, but you can tweak his ankles/knes as well as his shoulders. The head is on a nice ball joint, so can be moved in most directions. There is no accessories with the Chitauri. If bought packaged he does come with a balcony rail to link in with the one that came with Hawkeye. Paint apps are very good and he is more weathered than he looks in other press shots.

He is now stood menacing the Avengers alongside Red Skull. I would hope, perhaps through similar bargains, to add more of these in the future to make a trio of these bad boys.
