With the multitude of promotional material that has been released in the buildup to Avengers: Infinity War there is no shortage of sneak peeks at our favorite heroes new costumes. We have been able to see many of our favorite character’s don new costumes throughout the years and Infinity War is no different based on leaked LEGO figures, Pop! Funkos, and other merchandise. However, a new batch of merchandise featuring some of our favorite heroes and some villains seems to have overlooked a certain detail for the god of thunder, Thor.
A leaked image of new Infinity War mystery mini toys were released online and they feature a number of Avengers, one being Thor. However, what makes this interesting is that Thor looks somewhat different here than he has in previous material.
As you can see Thor appears to be holding his new weapon, Stormbreaker, but he also has another new feature, a cape. As of Thor: Ragnarok the Asgardian has not worn a cape, but this figure here appears to be wearing one. However, you may notice that this look for Thor is somewhat familiar.
In the Vanity Fair Marvel Studios photo shoot, Thor was seen wearing this suit which resembled his earlier costume but much darker. The color scheme here and the bright red cape resembles the new toy very much. So this begs the question of if this was an overlooked detail to give the Thor toy a cape, or if he will be getting a version of this for his new suit.
For now we will have to wait and see if the cape makes its way into the film or if this is simply on the merchandise side of things. But all the same it is very odd that they would release a Thor figure with an incorrect detail when all the other figures are correct.
