When I was young, I would have my parents buy me multiple copies of trooper-style action figures in order to amass a cartoon-accurate army. As an adult collector, I think I'll just stick with the one $239 Chitauri Foot Soldier from Hot Toys.
The Chitauri. A race of aliens created to take the place of the Skrulls in Marvel's Ultimate comics universe, which ended up adding the Skrulls eventually anyway. They would have faded into obscurity if not for a starring role as the things to punch and shoot in the Avengers movie. Instead, they've become the subject of two different sixth scale figures from the folks at Hot Toys — the Chitauri Commander, and the Chitauri Foot Soldier.
