Love and Thunder casts unboxed merchandise from the latest Marvel blockbuster

Who said toys are just for kids? The Walt Disney Company gave the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder a personal look at some of the merch now hitting shelves ahead of Marvel Studios’ latest blockbuster. And as Yahoo Entertainment’s exclusive unboxing video reveals, playing with these action figures made them all feel young again. (Watch the video above.)

The Asgardian thunder god himself, Chris Hemsworth, was joined by director Taika Waititi and co-star Tessa Thompson, while the new Thor, new buff Natalie Portman, scored her own table. And thanks to some good old movie magic – in the form of production assistants – the toys appeared right in their hot little hands, including Hasbro-made action figures, Lego playsets and cosplay-ready costume gear. “My kids will love this,” Waititi exults, as Hemsworth gives his plastic alter ego the ultimate compliment: “Sick!”

Take a closer look at some of the toys in the video, including action figures and Lego sets.

Of course, the crown jewels of the love and thunder line are the two hammers carried by Hemsworth and Portman respectively. While Thor is still brandishing Stormbreaker – the weapon he forged Avengers: Infinity War – his ex-turned-superhero Jane wields a resurrected Mjolnir, who previously bit the dust Thor: Ragnarok† Both Hasbro replicas feature movie-ready sound effects, making you just like Portman say “Yaaas!”

In addition to the toys featured in this video, Thor: Love and Thunder collection includes Funko Pops and key chains, clothing ranging from T-shirts to trucker hats and even an Ulta makeup line fit for a Valkyrie. Like you didn’t expect Marvel to bring the thunder (and the love) when it comes to fan-friendly merch.
