Marvel 500 Series 7 Review

Recently, while at my local toy shop, I picked up a blind bag of the seventh series of Marvel 500, this series was originally released in 2015 and features many well known Marvel characters including Doctor Strange, Star-Lord, Daredevil, Groot, Rocket Racoon and many more.

There are 24 designs in each series and each blind bag features 2-inch-scale figures of a Marvel character with stylized deco and dynamic poses.  As with most blind bag series, there are rarer versions of many of the heroes.

Here is a video review:

Here is a closer look at the contents of this blind bag:

My initial thoughts on the contents of this blind bag were pretty low, its very simple and while it might be a “cheap” toy, there are much better toys at this price bracket.

While a child might want to display these and build a collection, there isn’t any play factor in them, since they have no movement and compared to other similar priced blind bags like Playmobile and LEGO Minifigures, which offer a much better product.

Here is a look at what other characters are included in this series:


OVERALL:  For a pocket money purchase, this packet did feel a little expensive for what was included.  Especially as it has no moving parts and while there is some detail on the main body, the paint work is very simple.   It actually reminded me of the types of toys I used to get in my cereal as a kid, very simple and fun for a short period, and feel more like a modern day Green Army man and even if on sale, I’m sure Marvel fans will be disappointed in what’s in the bag.



Marvel 500 Blind Bags are available from many retailers including Entertainment Earth, Walmart and Amazon
