I thought mine was defective as well, but you REALLY have to smack it against your palm to get it to light up. It doesn't just stay lit. Smack it and it flashes for a bit.

Very odd design choice to have to hit it that hard...

Hahaha I actually just did that kinda got annoyed and it started flashing. Kinda strange but I guess its one way to be able to switch it off automatically or else it would be on all the time.


Im very glad I never bought any of the Marvel movies on Blu-ray! Phew save me from having double copies.

The unboxing video that was posted earlier said that the more you smash it, it also flickers more.

After seeing some unboxings of this set I'm glad I didn't bother selling off my Marvel Phase One films in exchange for this. The set looks pretty cheaply made and not all that impressive in my opinion. Certainly doesn't look like it's worth more than $100. The coolest things from it are probably the "files" and other paper items that come with the set.

Precisely. It's a toy. Some of us still have toys and memorabilia. I like action figures and the like. I even keep my movie ticket stub and tuck it in with the Blu-ray Disc when I purchase it.

As for this set, the included files, cards, clippings, and lenticular decoder are fun. Some folks will not not break the seal in hopes of making a profit or simply take pride in "owning" a collector's item, while some of us will actually look over and handle the stuff (Some will pour over every word.) I don't see anything wrong with any of it as long as you're not sacrificing something more worthy of your funds in order to feed your habit.

Conversely, I clearly understand those, like yourself, who choose to pass on such a purchase based on the cost/quality ratio not being up to your standards. That's completely understandable, and is not a reflection of your loyalty to "Avengers fandom". The fact that you even considered it already speaks to that.

With regard to the quality, The cardboard sleeves that that contain the discs are destined to show wear in a very short time. I have most of the the included films already, plus I rip and remux my more frequently watched Blu-rays to external 2 TB hard drives and watch them from my PlayStation 3. That said, I always like to "have" the physical media. It takes me back to the days of liner notes in vinyl records.

On another note, the SHIELD card made me dig out my "Avengers Security Clearance Card" that I picked up somewhere as a kid. I think it came with a comic or maybe a Wizard mag. Here are the 2 side-by-side.

Re: The Avengers - Sept. 25, 2012

Just an fyi for those of you who bought this set...be sure to double-check your Iron Man 2 disc. I was just looking at mine today and it was the dvd and not the BD in the slipcase.

I had checked it originally when the set first came but I overlooked it for one main reason...it says disc 3 on it. Since it was the third movie in the series, I didn't think anything of it and just assumed that was what it meant. Nope...it states disc 3 because the original IM2 three disc set came with the dvd version as the third disc since the first disc was the BD and the second was the BD extras disc. I bought a cheap used copy of IM2 the other day so I would have the extras disc and was looking to put it in my set. This caused me to look at this disc more carefully this time around and that was when I caught the mistake. It is likely someone just pulled the wrong disc when they were putting the movies in the set's special envelopes since they did not strike new discs for this set.

I have contacted Amazon and they are going to take care of it but just wanted everyone to double -check their copies if they just originally glanced at theirs like I did.

Yeah, I appreciate the heads-up, too, Brian. I just checked all mine as well, and they're all Blu.

Your avengers card came in a Wizard magazine. I know because I have the same card.

4K review. Looks like a solid upgrade.
