No one ever becomes too old to play dress-up. Whether you like to cosplay or have a thing for wearing capes, it’s never been more acceptable to dress like your favorite superheroes - well, usually. For fans who go hard-core with props and accessories, finding a place to whip out your favorite costume pieces can be hard. But, thanks to Hasbro, you will soon have some sweet Thor and Guardians of the Galaxy gear to don at your nearest convention.
Today, Hasbro and Marvel announced a new line of role play toys for fans. The collection has a stellar Star-Lord mask and a replica of Thor’s mighty hammer Mjlonir. The pieces will go on sale this fall, but you will be able to stake your claim on one or both pieces in the near future. Both props will be available for pre-order over on Amazon starting Saturday, and they will each retail for about $100 a pop. The hyperrealistic toys will definitely be a conversation starter for any Marvel fans, and the pieces both offer sound effects and even light up.

Of course, both Thor and Guardians of the Galaxy are set to make a comeback this year. In November, the God of Thunder will have his third standalone movie released with Thor: Ragnarok. And, come May, the Guardians will finally get their long-awaited sequel.
Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos.
