Marvel Teams With Bleacher Creatures to Launch Character Plush

MarvelPlush0415Marvel has teamed with Bleacher Creatures to launch several new lines of character plush figures this year featuring Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man and other properties.

In May, Bleacher Creatures Avengers: Age of Ultron line will hit shelves and include 10-inch plush versions of Nick Fury, Black Widow, Thor, Iron Man, The Hulk, Captain America and Hawkeye. The plush will hit retail in conjunction with the film’s May 1 premiere.

That same month the partners will debut their Ant-Manline in anticipation of the movie’s July 17 debut.

Additional Marvel Bleacher Creatures, including characters from Marvel television series and comic-inspired characters, will launch in August and September.

“We’re so excited to be working with the creative geniuses at Marvel as we transform their larger-than-life–or in the case of Ant-Man, smaller-than-life–superheroes into adorable yet faithful plush figures,” says Matthew Hoffman, founder and president, Bleacher Creatures. “Our motto is ‘put your passion in play,’ and Marvel’s ingenious creations make that a thrilling reality.”
