At long last, the "Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One - Avengers Assembled" collection is shipping to fans. It was initially supposed to come out on September 25, 2012, but was delayed due to a lawsuit with German luggage firm Rimowa GmbH.
One lucky customer has already received their box (via ComicBookMovie.com), and the entire set is slated to ship on April 2. That means fans will finally get to own the complete, Marvel-approved collection of all the Phase One movies: "Iron Man," "The Incredible Hulk," "Iron Man 2," "Thor," "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Marvel's The Avengers."
Splashpage debuted the first look at the collection back in July 2012. Here's what Disney said about it at the time:
