    Hey guys, not sure if this has been found before but, evedently were going back to 1986/87. Marvel has released there version of the G1 Jumpstarters. Came across these at work the other night (Walmart). Thought it was interesting that there the exact same thing as the G1 desendents, just in Spiderman clothing.

    My favorite post-G1 Jumpstarter was the McDonald's Armada Starscream Happy Meal toy.

    This looks like it's for Spiderman 3. Didn't we see a while back a news story for a whole Marvel line of these? I want the Iron Man one.

    The Animated Jumpstarters released in Brazil were pretty cool too.

    No those were Avengers, these are Amazing Spider-man. Them being the two Marvel movies this year I think those are what we're getting.

    Also repaints of Marvel TF's are coming too.

    My bad, I meant the new Spider-Man movie. Did the ones for Avengers already come out? I never saw them ( not that I looked that hard ).

    I don't think so, Avengers merch is still rolling out. But the street date for Amazing SM stuff is the 28th. And some retailers are ignoring it as usual.

    According to this link, The Avengers Jumpstarters don't come out until the fall.

    Cap, Iron Man and Hulk look "cooler" IMO, and I'm sure my 7 year old would want one (we're going to watch the movie for the second time today).

    Saw these a couple of days back and thought they were neat. Fortunately for my wallet I'm not into Spider-man.
