Doom Digest

Every day here at Doom HQ we receive tons of tips from our readers about really cool stuff from the world of geek, as well as promotional materials for new films, comic books, collectibles, and much more. While we do our best to bring you as much of it as possible, we don’t always have enough geek manpower available to cover it all on a daily basis. But we hate the idea of all of this really cool stuff wasting away in our inbox. How could we NOT cover it? Hence why we’ve resurrected our long-defunct column Bits Of Doom, now rebranded and revamped as Doom Digest, a collection of easily digestible bits of news, videos, photos, and other goodies.

In honor of the release this past Friday of Marvel’s The Avengers, we’re devoting today’s Doom Digest to all things The Avengers!

Avengers Pinball Game

Zen Studios will soon release Marvel Pinball: Avengers Chronicles, a pinball table video game based on The Avengers movie, for Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PlayStation Vita.

Avengers Vinyl Figures

Funko has a set of 5 Marvel The Avengers vinyl bobblehead figures. The set contains The Hulk, Captain America, Nick Fury, Iron Man, and Thor. You can purchase the figures separately as well (although, it’s slightly cheaper to buy the set if you’re interested in getting every figure).
