I am a huge Marvel Studios fan-boy and I have been itching for a reason to post about the upcoming Avengers movie here. Luckily Acura has just given me one! Acura is the official vehicle of S.H.I.E.L.D. the Government agency responsible for forming the Avengers team. To help promote the Avengers movie (releasing May 4th) Acura and the Avengers have launched the ShieldOps.com microsite.
On the site players can pick one of three S.H.I.E.L.D. Acura vehicles and play through a series of challenges. That in and of itself sounds like a fun way to spend some time but the deal is sweetend with a possibility to win cool S.H.I.E.L.D. swag depending on how well you do in the game.
Some of the prizes include: movie tickets to the Avengers, a S.H.I.E.L.D. ATAC tactical pen flashlight, a 1:43 scale version of the Acura NSX convertible supercar that Tony Stark drives in the movie, a laser projected virtual keyboard, and the big whammy: one person will be flown to New York and get treated to a day on the town “Tony Stark style” complete with a helicopter tour of the city.
The grand prize sounds like an awesome time but personally I really want to win that 1:43 scale NSX!
Head to ShieldOps.com to try your hand. Good luck agents!
