Theatrical films are no longer the sole method for fans to interact with the MCU. In addition to Marvel Studios’ Disney+ series and Disney theme park locations and attractions, new collectable gear is another option for fans to immerse themselves in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Even though the Infinity Saga is over, fans are still channeling their inner Thanos in order to gather the Infinity Stones.
Because of the release of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, a large number of Thanos and Iron Man Nano Gauntlets have been made available to fans and collectors.
And now, in connection with the launch of Walt Disney World’s new Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster, Disney has revealed another another opportunity for fans to carry home the legendary MacGuffins from the Infinity Saga.
New Gauntlets and Infinity Stone Collectibles from Disney
Disney announced a range of new Marvel items to honor the official release of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, including an Infinity Stones briefcase, relics, and gauntlets.
Laughing Place reports that there are many opportunities for visitors to gather all six Infinity Stones at EPCOT’s new Creations Shop, which is situated adjacent to Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.
To begin, Disney has produced artifacts that hold their respective Infinity Stones, such as the Time Stone and the Eye of Agamotto, the Orb carrying the Power Stone, and the Space Stone in the Tesseract. Each item glows with the stone it is made of and even includes sound effects.
The Soul Stone is the sole stone that does not have an artifact and cannot be acquired on its own. Guests may only receive the stone by buying a gauntlet, which is a steal given the circumstances of the flicks.
In addition to Thanos’ gauntlet and Iron Man’s Nano gauntlet, Disney has published Thanos’ gauntlet and Iron Man’s Nano gauntlet. Both have movable fingers and all six infinity stones are included.
It is similar to the one used by Steve Rogers to transport the Infinity Stones back in time in the last scene of Endgame:
Three New Methods for Obtaining the Infinity Stones
While these Disney collectibles do not appear to be on par with screen-accurate collectibles, they do provide fans with three different ways to collect and display the Infinity Stones: a suitcase of five stones, individual artifacts with their corresponding stones, and the two gauntlets that come with all six Infinity Stones.
This new line of products from Disney is the company’s latest attempt to incorporate the MCU into its theme parks and experiences.
In 2021, Disney debuted Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure, which has included new characters like as Moon Knight, Shang-Chi, and the Eternals, in addition to a Spider-Man ride and MCU-inspired food and retail.
With the announcement of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and these new souvenir products, Disney plans to create another Avengers Campus in Disneyland Paris, as well as more Marvel-themed activities aboard Disney Cruise Line’s next ship, the Disney Wish.
As long as fans are involved in the MCU, it’s probable that Disney will continue to develop additional possibilities for fans to experience the world and take it home with them.
