Loki's Army Revealed...in Toy Form

We've seen glimpses in the trailers but now we can get a better look.

For months we've been wondering who the heck Loki's army is. There has been some glimpses in the trailers. People have taken screen grabs of the trailer but if you were at C2E2 and stopped by Diamond Select's booth, you got to see what the army creatures will look like.

Today, Diamond Select has released a nice clear image of a member of the army. Check it out below if you are curious.

That's not all they have coming. A Loki's Army footsoldier is also coming in Minimate form (series 45) along with some other Avengers.

== TEASER ==

And if you're a Hawkeye or Jeremy Renner fan, you'll probably want to pick up this 7-inch figure.

The Minimates 2-packs will be released in early May. The Marvel Select Hawkeye and footsoldier will be out in July. Both will come with a bridge battle display base that connect to form a larger battle scene. Look for them in comic shops and specialty stores.

Jeremy Renner 7-inch....heh... /inner child

Posted by AaronK

They kind of look like the Covenant. Only Master Chief can defeat Loki now!

Posted by biggkeem89

From what I heard, their basically the same as the skrulls(with the shapeshifting and the destroyed homeworld), except for the name and the color(because Fox has the Skrulls right). Also heard they are loaned to Loki by a certain major bad guy:

Thanos

Aren't they Beta Ray Bill's race?

Posted by BatMark_

I watched an early review of the movie and the alien race are called the "Chitauri".

It's a mix of both but there called the Chitauri, Whedon confirmed it 
 

“The alien race are the Chitauri — or a version of them — because they are not one of the key races and they don’t have a storied history. That wasn’t the point. I know this debate will go on long after I’m dead. I would say it was the Kree-Skrull race.”

Chitauri aren't a Kree-Skrull race. They're strictly Skrull. Go watch the Ultimate Avengers. They're a more agressive & violent subfaction of the Skrull race. Get your facts right.

For people how do not read The Ultimates they are a alien race with shapeshifting abilities that tried to invade Earth during the First Vol. of The Ultimates for more info go to link Chitauri

Yep they're the Skrulls Ultimate counterpart & they caused the Ultimate Avengers (movie version) to band together in the animated movie. Loki won't work with his own race so my theory is he stole the Infinity Gauntlet from the Asgardian Vault & trade it to Thanos for the army. I'd love to see Thanos siloheutted out & have him sitting somewhere with his Infinity Gauntlet showing & say something bada$$.

In the Ultimate ubiverse, the chitauri are the same species as the skrulls, but they are labeled as "terrorists" by the 'real' skrulls.

Calm down there spanky stop using other peoples thoughts & formulate your own statements using your your own words. You sound like Joss' yes man or drone. What I'm trying to say is you could've described them without quoting him. Put your own twist on things. Stop "sighing" like a depressed alcoholic that's about to kill himself.

So they are the Chitauri?

Posted by IAMGROOT

This argument is pointless.

Fran Drescher just confirmed that the villians in question are, in FACT, Kree-Skrull.

(and maybe Joss said that; doesnt really matter)

And if you think im lying, I will write you a very stong letter of mild ill will and dissapointment, and send it to your home.

Then we will see who the bigger man-child is.

Like anything in the Movies and the other Marvel Earths, names are all subjective. Joss Whedon liked the idea of the Skrull but for whatever reason didn't want to use them as such. He probably also liked the idea of the Kree. Since there was a similar off-shoot of skrull in the Ultimates Universe he used them the Chitauri. Is this the same as the ones in the Ultimate, NO. Are they really Skrull or Kree? NO. Remember every Earth Marvel creates has its own names & origins for things and a lot of times they use the same name or origin for a character for a total different one. My opinion just enjoy the movie. Its like the Green Lantern movie that got such bad reviews and bashed by the comic community. I personally thought it was a good movie and I came in with no preconceptions because I read nothing online and had never read a Green Lantern comic.

Posted by bunkerbuster05

Guys, it's not anybody huge. I'm pretty sure Loki just got minions from the other realms. That giant flying snake monster, isn't that the serpent of something? I remember there being a giant snake monster in the comics, but I never really read much Thor.

Yeah the Marvel Cinematic Universe is clustersmuck of alternate realities. Aren't the Kree usually more peaceful than the Skrulls? Since alot of their guys help the Marvel heroes? Like Noh-Var & Mar-Vell are heroes. But Skrulls are usually bad guys. Plus I thought Thanos wasn't Kree or Skrull. I thought he was his own race of alien so when did he make become a Skrull or Kree leader?

Not Chitauri, Chitauri are shapeshifters but they don't have that humanoid form.... they are in fact a combination of both the Skrulls and The Chitauri but they're not called Chitauri

Posted by VenomMelendez

@KainScion: No, they are not Skrulls or Kree.

Posted by Inverno

I still think they are from Breakworld. Could you people stop arguing and not see this?

@Namor1987 said:

Comic-book fact-check time: the Kree are the reason the Skrulls are so violent. The skrulls were nothing more than peaceful farmers until the Kree "Empire" (keep that word in mind when thinking of how peaceful they are) decided to invade their homeworld, forcing the Skrulls to fight back and adapt, becoming the "bad guys" everybody sees them as.

I hope its the Korbinites. They have ties to the Asgard with their homeplant destroyed my Surtur.

Thanks thats why I asked. So basically the Skrulls are pissed off because of the Kree wanted to take over their home? That'd make me crazy too lol.

Surtur could've lent Loki the army. People here say it was Disir or the Sons of Muspelheim. I see the horse-like enlongated jaw structure that people can connect with the Korbinites. BUT honestly the general fan is pretty ignorant to comic book stuff. So that might go over there here. I hope it something Asgardian in nature that'd make more sense.

Didn't the red skull get sent to space in Cap? Maybe he brought them. I'm not sure thet'd bring Thanos into the 1st movie, but maybe. Who knows.

Not really specified if he got disintegrated & ultimately died or just got transported. But remember the Tesseract was used to power HYDRA's weaponry (in the movie). Plus Skull kinda sticks to his own armies so if he lent Loki a army it'd be some freaks that Zola was working on. The main villains that need to be in the next few movies are: Mandarin (Iron Man 3) screw the rumors he's Iron Man's main antagonist & their in China or Namor (since the actor is European I'm guessing by his name); Skurge & Enchantress for Thor 2 & Surtur or Bor for Thor 3 (since Bor & Surtur are Thor's biggest threats); Captain America 2 should focus on Winter Soldier & Captain America 3 should be Baron Von Strucker or Baron Helmut Zemo (since Strucker was more of a threat than Zemo or Skull); & IF Incredible Hulk 2 comes out maybe She-Hulk & Titania or General Thunderbolt becoming Red Hulk & then build to the Leader (since he's technically his main antagonist). Thanos would be a waste if they debuted him that early Masters Of Evil should be next then get their a$$e$ kicked & have Thanos make his stand in Avengers 3 since he's technically 1 of the strongest villains in Marvel.

They are the Chitauri, its confirmed. And it looks nice.

Posted by kamionero

It was a pretty safe bet they would be Chitauri. They played the exact same role in Ultimate. The fact that they differ greatly in their film incarnation is just the nature of the adaptation. Idk why some ppl where so hellbent that they were those wierd valkiries that showed up like once during dark reign.

No offense it'd be "They look nice" since it's plural not singular & more than 1 of them. But they do look ill.

@Namor1987: Oh I know, I was really just making two separate comments. I meant to say the race that is portrayed by the toy is the Chitauri and that THAT particular piece displayed for us looks nice. My bad, lol.

Posted by Namor1987

@RedheadedAtrocitus: ok I got confused. My bad

Posted by Emperormeister734

so they're Chitauri, I thought they would be Korbinites

Posted by Sammo21

@Asok: They are Chitauri which are kind of like the Ultimate version of the skrulls (even though skrulls exist in ultimate marvel).

Posted by Loki9876

@Shoe: Yes but that doesn't mean they can't use the regular skrulls in the future, they aren't very chitauri-like I heard, they just have that name in the movie(again I heard this)
