With Avengers: Endgame just five weeks away from release, a whole load of merchandise for the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War sequel is currently waiting in the wings, including this new set of action figures shared by Instagram user Mcucollector24.
As you can see, the package shows Hawkeye and Black Widow dressed in the same Avengers uniforms that featured in last week’s trailer, along with swappable heads for Iron Man, Ant-Man and Nebula. But while the so-called “Quantum Realm suits” are a familiar sight by now, the design for Karen Gillan’s character offers one little detail that has yet to appear in the trailers.
Look closely at the left side of Nebula’s face, and you’ll notice that much of it has taken on an orange or brown hue. Though it’s unclear what this change could mean, our best guess might be that the cybernetically enhanced heroine has undergone an upgrade of some sort.

Since the film’s promotional footage isn’t offering any clues, we may have to wait until next month’s release to get some context on Nebula’s new design. In the meantime, details are still vague on the character’s role in the Phase 3 finale, though Gillan at least mentioned in an interview last year that Thanos’ adopted daughter will “confront some serious daddy issues” in her next movie.
More recently, the actress told Empire that she thinks Nebula will be “a character we’re all rooting for.” This may not sound like much, but it does seem to challenge the old fan theory that she’ll replace Thanos as the main villain of the film. Regardless, we’ll see what’s in store for the Guardians of the Galaxy regular when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th.
