Round 2 and Captain Action Enterprises announce a new fully licensed Marvel costume set for classic Super Villain Loki. The 1:6 scale Loki costume set represents the first time ever that Dr. Evil has been able to transform into a Marvel villain.
Captain Action, the popular super hero toy from the 1960s, returned to toy shelves this year along with new costume sets, Spider-Man and Captain America from Marvel Comics. An all-new Thor uniform and accessory set for Captain Action is scheduled for simultaneous release.
Dr. Evil, a menacing alien complete with a creepy exposed brain, served as the antagonist to Captain Action during the 1960s. Now he is back with his own figure to be released this summer and comes packaged in a full-view window box, with illustration provided by comics legend Joe Jusko. Just as Captain Action can assume the identities of popular heroes by donning their apparel, the new Dr. Evil will assume the identities of villains via costume sets. “This costume set marks the first costume for the all-new Dr. Evil in the modern era,” said Ed Catto of Captain Action Enterprises.
All Captain Action costume sets come in two versions. The Toys"R"Us exclusive Loki costume set will include an authentically styled, detailed cloth costume with Loki mask, boots, staff, helmet, belt, newspaper and gloves. The deluxe set adds bonus accessories: gloved hands, Uru Chains, and a goblet. The deluxe set also includes a bonus Hawkeye tunic and harness -collect all 6 Marvel Comics costume sets for Captain Action to create a complete Hawkeye Avenger Build-A-Costume set.
Dr. Evil and the Loki costume set, as well as Captain Action's Thor costume set, will be available in August at Toys"R"Us and hobby stores. Come see the Loki costume and more Captain Action product, including the all-new Thor costume, at the Round 2 booth at C2E2 in Chicago, April 13-15.
