Fans my age tend to have a fondness for the hunt and discovery of of back issues in a time before every moderately-sized city had a comic shop. In the part of North Carolina that I grew up in, the big mother-load of back issues were usually flea markets. I would find some gems at the flea market, whether it was the one off the Interstate that coated the family car in dust, or the one just outside of town that had only a few booths. In that last one, the comic seller had a really good selection of back issue Marvel comics. I seem to recall one in particular he had was Avengers #157, which sported a Jack Kirby cover. Of course, at the time. I had no clue who Jack Kirby was. Nevertheless, the cover had all of the Avengers taken out by one foe, and all I could see of him was his boots.
Avengers AOU brought us some amazing characters this year but one of the stand out characters was the Vision. I was a tad nervous when I first heard he was joining the AOU cast and my fears were laid to rest once I saw the film. Now Hot Toys is bringing fans this character in the 1/6th scale. Read on for more info and check out those images. The Vision is going to be one tough figure and we cannot wait to get ours.

We will all find out when the epic Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron starts to hit theatres worldwide later this month.
