Though the toy in this news post directly relate to Avengers: Infinity War, we now have our first possible look at the gimmick featured on the upcoming Bumblebee: The Movie Bee Vision Mask.
“ToyFair is this weekend, but Hasbro gave us an early look at Marvel Hero Vision, a new line of augmented reality toys. It’s an Iron Man helmet with a phone holder that lets you fight the forces of Thanos invading your living room.
The Iron Man Hero Vision mask is basically an ordinary Iron Man helmet with a removable sleeve for your phone, similar to Google Cardboard, Google Daydream View, or the Samsung Gear VR. You put the phone in the sleeve, put the sleeve in the mask, and then stare at the screen as your phone’s camera pipes in your surroundings with a JARVIS-like vignette around your view. You then slip on a hand blaster covered in AR tags, and the Hero Vision software tracks where it is, rendering Iron Man’s gauntlet over it.”
The post on Geek.com denotes that Hasbro will reveal other such Hero Vision masks at the New York Toy Fair 2018 and we know very well that Bee Vision Mask is one of them, for the mask is listed on certain regions as Bumblebee Hero Vision Mask. The trademark was first discovered by TFW2005 via United States Patent and Trademark Office.
This also confirms another information TFW2005 received from a journalist who attended London and Nuremberg Toy Fairs this year. According to the info, this Hero Vision Mask Series is part of Hasbro’s Phygital Initiative where physical toys utilize a play-pattern with digital entities such as smartphones and apps.
Each set is priced at $50. Check out several images from this cool new toy, after the jump.
