New 10 Disc Marvel Blu-ray Set Feature The Avengers Plus a Glowing Tesseract!

I may occasionally question their plans for their comics, but there's no doubt that Marvel is currently doing a lot of great things with their movies. And on their own site they've just revealed the mouth-full that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One - Avengers Assembled (10-Disc Limited Edition Six-Movie Collector's Set) on Blu-ray, featuring Iron Man 1 & 2, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, and The Avengers. And they're all stored in Nick Fury's suitcase containing the blinding power of a light-up tesseract (that's "cosmic cube"for you laymen):

Oooh pretty, right? That tesseract will be handy for... well I guess you could kind of... it's a power source right? Or a portal? Or.... What exactly does a tesseract do? Nobody really knows. But it's super desirable. Also included are a bunch of Nick Fury's secret files which actually mostly consist of doodles, ticket stubs, and lists of celebrities he'd like to sleep with.

The truth is that this large suitcase will probably be stored clumsily against the shelving where you house all your regular Blu-Rays and guests will constantly point to it and say, "What the hell is that thing?" and your voice will tire from telling them. But I totally want one. It's available for pre-order on Amazon here, but no word yet on an Australian release as far as I can tell.

Join me after the jump to check out some of the art on those movie sleeves!

Artist Matthew Ferguson is responsible for the artwork on these beautiful retro sleeves. I really dig this style! Check them out!

Stunning! Marvel, you totally got this right!


  1. excellent! I've been waiting for something like this to pick up these movies on Blu-Ray!!

  2. This package is really amazing, even though I just don't know how to use the tesseract. Probably a perfect design on my room, gonna light it up whenever I sleep.
