I’m a big fan of stop motion animation; pose the figure, take a snap, adjust the figure, take a snap, and so on. Lego had a stop motion set about 7 years ago using Marvel’s Spider-Man characters, but that was quite pricey. Jazwares has released their own stop motion package called Marvel Heroes Ani-Movie.


Aimed at kids this $59.99 package contains several backgrounds and four flat cardboard figures (Spider-Man, Hulk, Green Goblin, and Dr. Doom). Cardboard? Come on, gimme a break, this thing will last all of 20 minutes before Bobby and Susie get in a fight and rip the figures apart. The set also comes with a swivel neck camera for animating the flat 2D figures or upright for 3D figures.

    Such an expensive toy for children to become young producers.
