Hasbro has announced the addition of two highly-detailed prop replicas to their Marvel Legends line, this time focusing on Marvel heroes with feature films in 2017. Star-Lord and Thor cosplayers will be excited to learn that they'll soon be able to complete their suits with this new helmet and hammer.
Star-Lord's helmet is inspired by the real deal worn by Chris Pratt in the "Guardians of the Galaxy" films. The light-up helmet takes three AA batteries and is adjustable to fit most adult heads. It even comes with Bluetooth speakers, meaning you can blast your "Guardians of the Galaxy" tunes (or songs inspired by the film) the next time you're strolling the floors of a comic-con.

Along with the new Star-Lord helmet, Hasbro's Marvel Legends line will also include a highly-detailed Mjolnir modeled after the one from the "Thor" films. The prop replica features sounds and light as well, erupting in a thunderclap when it's whirled around. Additionally, voice recognition technology makes the Odin symbol illuminate when the wielder says the word "worthy."
