Hasbro Captain America: The Winter Soldier 2014 Toy Line! #MiHasbroMarvel

This is part of a product review campaign with Latina Mom Bloggers and Hasbro; complimentary products were provided.  However, all opinions expressed are my own.

One day as we were having dinner, my husband exclaimed: I am married to a teen aged boy. That might sound bad but that was after I went into a 10 minute diatribe about Electro, the new villain in the Amazing Spider-man 2 movie. I also was telling him how excited I was about the new Captain America movie coming out and how we need to go the first weekend. Oh. And I also was telling him how I couldn't wait for the new Avengers movie next year. Because of my love of superheroes, horror movies and action flicks, his statement was pretty much on the money because it is mostly teenage boys who love these types of movies. Or so they say.

When I start waxing poetic about super heroes, he just shakes his head and rolls his eyes. But he does indulge me by taking me to all the big movies when they first come out. Rest assured that in April I will be at the movie theater watching Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And then in May, I will be watching The Amazing Spider-man 2 when it first comes out. I love both Captain America and Spider-man. I got chills when Captain America made a cameo in Thor: The Dark World. That is how weird I am.

So I am in hog heaven because Captain America: The Winter Solider opens on April 4 and The Amazing Spider-man 2 is swinging back into theaters on May 2. WOOOOOO!

To celebrate, Hasbro is putting out a new toy line featuring the beloved Super Soldier, his high-flying ally, the Falcon, and new villain, The Winter Soldier. For Spider-man, Hasbro captures the sequel’s excitement with its 2014 toy line featuring new Spider strike technology, which lets the action figures activate special features on accessories and vehicles.

I recently received two of the new Captain America toy line! I received the Captain America Super Soldier Gear Shockwave Blast 3.75 inch action figure and the Super Soldier Gear Battle Helmet. Now, if I had kids, I would have to share these goodies with them. I don't have kids so they are mine. And yes, I am keeping them because I also have other toys like an Iron-man figurine and some other movie memorabilia.

I loved them. I don't play with the toys but I do collect them. Although hubby has forbidden me to keep the Super Soldier Gear Battle Helmet because he says there is no room for it in our new house. He says I have to give it to our friend's little boy who will get hours of pleasure from it. My argument is I would get hours of pleasure from it as well. I will probably lose this fight.

But he is right, what child wouldn't love this toy. The Super Soldier Battle Helmet offers kids hours of fun. The helmet has a visor that will light up. It also has an extra piece that when attached to the helmet becomes a  rocket launcher. It can also be attached to three different spots on the helmet to give a more interactive experience. The best part is that you don't only have the rocket launcher, you can buy additional gear to add to the helmet.

These are great toys. Any Captain America fan would love them. They are great for kids ages 4 and up. They are even for big kids like me. So check out the new Hasbro MARVEL CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER toy line.


  1. These are really nice toys to give to my nephew! he would love one of these. What is so great about Captain America is that the whole family can enjoy seeing this movie together! I like this movie a lot!

  2. You are too funny! I admit that when my spouse is away, I watch all kinds of movies he doesn't have to know about, and I just watched the first Captain America movie last week when he was at a conference. LOL! The poor dear does indulge my love of bad sci-fi, at least for the most part.

    Enjoy your toys, and the new movies coming out, too!

  3. I think my grandsons would enjoy both but I think they'd both really love that helmet.That is pretty cool

  4. It's good that your husband understands your strangeness and still loves you. I have no desire to see either of these movies.

  5. Its great that you collect movie memorabilia. Iron Man and Captain America are good choices for your collection. I've heard of people who have collected for years and then later decided to sell their collections and make a lot of money with it. Thanks for sharing.

  6. my son loves his marvel action hero's, he would love these toys, they would get tons of play time. the battle helmet looks like a winner to him.
