A brilliant wave of new merchandise has hit the shelves in anticipation of the next wave of Marvel-inspired improvements on Disney property. It was expected that Disney wouldn’t miss on a chance to capitalize on this momentum with Avenger’s Campus opening on June 4th and the new Spider-Man ride “WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure“, and they did not disappoint.
The soul stone of this whole sweep of merchandise is the interactive hand gear designed as both a souvenir and an integral part of the new experience coming to Disneyland. The new ride promises to recognize hand gestures and body movements to make guests part of the ride. I’m imagining a combination of Ninjago from LegoLand and Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin brought into this era of technology! It all begins with a base of WEB power bands that guests can build upon to make both their WEB tech and ride experience unique.
There is a variety of customization for the tech, all inspired by heroes like Spider-Man, Ghost Spider, Iron Man, and Rescue. I’m not sure if I’m excited for how unique each blaster makes the experience or dreading the fact that I know I’m going to need each one to feel complete! These hero-inspired customization patterns do not stop at the slinger though, Disney has released another collectible and we will see if it meets the same wild fanaticism as the merchandise surrounding Grogu (Baby Yoda).
Each of these little “battle bots” is inspired by Iron Man, Black Widow, Black Panther, and even Ant-Man and The Wasp, but Disney has teased that there will be more to come! Which are you hoping to see?
Disney understands that the key to a truly successful souvenir is your ability to show it off for all to see, and they look ahead by supplying the perfect way to tote along with your sidekick. A custom Avenger’s backpack has an attachable web based holder, to safely carry the bot or anything else you might need.
