As you might know, the movie THOR is out in theaters…

Did you know that there are two Thor out there?

In the Comic realm, Thor is well-known as the God of Thunder which the movie is based on.   In the Stargate series, he is an alien more specifically an Asgard. 

Now that I have presented you the two Thor that I know…  Let me present you a new toy line that Hasbro Canada has released recently based on the movie Thor.

Our Thoughts

We are comic collectors.  We have many boxes of comics in our basement.  I can honestly say that at this moment I have read more of them than my husband himself…  However, now our oldest is very interested in reading some of them now.  

Our love for comics has not stopped there…  The boys have worn Superheroes costumes (Hulk, Spider-man, Superman) at Halloween.  Our daughter was Super girl last Halloween.  We have PJs, shirts, t-shirts and even a jacquet with superheroes characters on it.   Needless to say, when the opportunity of reviewing the new Thor toys my husband and I were excited.   Thor is an interesting character and his hammer is fantastic.

IMG_7062Well the toys are fabulous to say the least.   The action figure will provide fun time for one of the boys.  But we immediately thought of Jérémy, who is five, for the helmet, sword and shield and lighting hammer.    This will be a perfect costume for this year’s Halloween.   The hammer itself is very interesting, you could simulate the control of the lighting and storms and impress the other hobgoblins on Halloween night with the lightshow it will produce.    It is just too cool!    Both my husband and I were impressed with this particular toy.   The helmet, sword and shield and the lightning hammer is geared for kids ages 5 and up.

My husband was joking that we would need to dye Jérémy’s hair blond for him to personalized Thor on Halloween night.  *grin*  We won`t be so drastic, I promise.   I love my brown eyes and hair boy!

Knowing Jérémy – he will be delighted to have a new costume this year and explore the world of Thor with his hammer.  Jérémy is the little boy who observe a lot on Halloween night.  He loves to see the other costumes.    I just have the feeling that he will attract some comments this year – especially with the lighting hammer. 

Now if only we could find time and babysitters for us to go see Thor in theater…
