What’s Buzz-worthy: Why is this one here? (Why not?) Buzz found these marked down to 98 cents a box at a toy store — and actually they turned out to be buy one get one half price — so that made them worth a cheap break here. The Vision is the coolest figure of the bunch. Why? Check out how the cape allows him to float above the keyboard in a perfectly mystical way. Ant-Man seems a bit large in this size but the sculpt works pretty well and then I landed a rendition of the title character himself, Captain America. This lot was rounded out with Falcon — perfect pairing with Ant-Man if you saw that film — and then an Agent 13, which I admittedly had to google to figure out who it was. (Saw this film once but that’s it so I didn’t remember.) But for 98 cents a pop down from an original price of $6 apiece, these were fun to see what emerged from a box … or five. These mini bobbles are smaller than the X-Men or WWE Mystery Minis — both of those series get high marks from this dabbler — and that’s really the only drawback. They feel a tad small for the original price. One plus is that all of these figures are made in equal volume so if you find a sealed display box you’ll get one of each, though there are a handful of variation figures only found at certain stores.
