With MARVEL's CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR coming home on Digital HD, DVD and Blu-ray, it's time to take a look at one of the more recent toys to spawn from the film - the MARVEL Legends 3-Pack featuring Captain America, Iron Man and Spider-man. Crafted by Hasbro and sent to us for review by my allies at Entertainment Earth, this set marks the world action figure debut of Tom Holland's Spider-man, a character that finally entered the MARVEL Cinematic Universe this year, soon to be seen in next summer's SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING. Take a look at the video below for a hands-on look at this set, right here in the Toy Testing Facility at Rock Father HQ™.

The MARVEL Legends series of 6" super-articulated action figures continues to be a big hit, and this set is no exception. The figures look great, are quite poseable, and come with accessories such as Cap's battle-damaged shield, four blast-effects, and alternate heads... Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark, and Steve Rogers  (which doesn't look much like Chris Evans). The exclusive battle-damaged deco on each looks great, but one point noted by my four-year-old daughter as an irritation is that there's no alternate head for Peter Parker, which would've been fantastic since this is the debut of Tom Holland's Spider-man.

An early entry into my 2016 Holiday Wish Guide here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine, this set is recommended for Ages 4+, though we all know it's quite geared toward "big kids" - the collector market.  Get yours now from Entertainment Earth!
