It’s the holiday season, and there’s only one thing to get the Marvel megafan in your life: all six Infinity Stones housed in a fashionable yet functional golden gauntlet. But presuming you don’t have access to relics of immeasurable power, there’s a better alternative for True Believers out there — namely, the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase Two Collection, which we featured in our annual holiday gift guide for movie lovers. But don’t just take our word for it — watch our word for it. We got our hot little hands on this sought-after collector’s item, and did an unboxing video for your viewing pleasure.
The 13-disc Amazon-exclusive box set collects the 6 films that comprised Marvel’s epic Phase Two: Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Ant-Man. The collection includes copies of the film on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, and digital, and comes packaged in truly gorgeous collectible packaging designed by artist Matt Ferguson. There’s a bonus disc, as well, that’s positively bursting with bonus content—including the Marvel One-Shots, screen tests with Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista, deleted and extended scenes, and much more. The best part? It’s all housed in a 1:1 replica of the Orb that Star-Lord “liberated” from Morag. And, yes, much like it’s on-screen counterpart, this too comes with the Power Stone housed inside its eldritch depths.
To quote the late, great Billy Mays, “But wait, there’s more!” The Phase Two Collection also comes with a motherlode of weird collectible memorabilia. There’s a Tony Stark temporary tattoo, a gold-foiled page from the book of the Dark Elves, Avengers and S.T.R.I.K.E. uniform patches, a copy of the Sekovia Accords, and much more. Honestly, the only way to get more Marvel goodness in one place would be if it came with a copy of 100 Things Avengers Fans Should Know & Do Before I Die. You know? The book I wrote. Right, right, neither the time nor the place. Basically, if you don’t already own these films individually, this collection is a must-have for Marvel mavens. Priced at $249.99, it is currently on sale on Amazon for $184.99, and will begin shipping when it releases on December 8.
