Avengers big & tall chair reviews
This section looks at the common specs of all RAP Series chairs.
RAP Series Avengers chairs are cheap with decent features. All models cost under $215.
- Functionality: 3D armrests; rocking function with tilt-lock.
- Comfort: molded foam padding; adjustable lumbar and neck support pillows.
- Upholstery: tri-tone PU leather with embroidered Marvel logos on the front of the backrest.
- Warranty: 30-day money-back-guarantee; 1-year warranty.
Specs are solid on paper — for those needing a part-time chair. The seat foam is molded but isn’t super-resilient cold foam. As a result, the warranty is only one year. Part-time users will find this a comfortable, solid chair that holds up well over time.
Hard-core users can expect to get less value out of a RAP Series chair. If used full-time, expect the padding to slightly flatten after around 8 months. That will result in uneven weight distribution and a less comfortable seat. In contrast, pricier chairs using cold-foam padding will retain shape for years.
Compared to more expensive chairs, RAP Series chairs are cheaper up-front. But over the long term, they are less durable and will need replacing more often.
RAP Series Marvel chairs have wide seats and backrests. These chairs provide plenty of room for most big and tall sizes.
- Seat width & depth: 22″ (W) x 23″ (D)
- Backrest width x height: 23.5″ (W), 34.8″ (H)
- Floor to seat range: 18″ to 21″
- Total height: 51″ to 55″
- Size rating: 5’6″ to 6’3″; maximum weight capacity 400 pounds
Avengers big & tall chair designs
Current big and tall Avengers chairs come in Captain America, Iron Man, and Spiderman designs. Each of those has light and dark variations. There is also a single Black Panther chair available.
Captain America gaming chairs
The light Captain America chair has a prominent white accent along the front of the backrest. Inside of the white is a Captain America shield embroidered with red, white, and blue thread.
The dark version has a more subdued star and stripes embroidered on the backrest. The back of both designs is plain deep blue.
The Captain America dark edition is also available on Amazon for $179.98.
Iron Man gaming chairs
The light edition Iron Man chair has a deep red and orange design on the front of the backrest. Iron Man’s helmet is also embroidered on the front in bright orange thread.
The dark edition has a more subdued design with colored wings against a dark leather base. Embroidered on the front of the backrest is the Stark Industries logo.
The Iron Man dark edition is also available on Amazon for $179.98.
Spiderman gaming chairs
The light Spiderman edition comes in colors reminiscent of the campy 60s Spiderman cartoon. The holes in the upper backrest look like Spiderman’s eyes. The front of the backrest mimics his costume with a red and blue webbed design.
The dark edition depicts the Venom Symbiote Costume. It has an all-black backrest, grey seat, and grey embroidered spiderwebs. A red embroidered spider on the front of the backrest adds a splash of color.
The Spiderman dark edition is also available on Amazon for $179.98.
Black Panther gaming chair
The newest chair in the RAP Series line is a Back Panther Edition. This model stands out with a glow-in-the-dark embroidered Black Panther logo. It also has a u-shaped neck pillow emblazoned with Wakanda artwork.
The silver, black, and white color scheme is popular. Both the Oakland Raiders and LA Kings use it. If you’re a fan of either team or the Back Panther, this chair may appeal.
Avengers big & tall chair alternatives
Our roundup of the best big and tall gaming chairs lists both high-end and cheap alternatives. A good example at the high end is the plush AKRacing Master Series Max. Features include 4D armrests, cold-foam padding, and a multifunction tilt mechanism.
On AKRacing.com, the Master Series Max costs $519 — more than double the price of a RAP Marvel chair. However, the Master Series Max also comes with a 5-year warranty on parts, plus a 10-year warranty on the frame.
Among cheaper chairs that support 400 pounds, Fantasylab chairs stand out. Made by Killabee, these come with 3D or 4D armrests, a multifunction tilt mechanism, and a 1-year warranty.
Fantasylab chairs cost around $60 more than RAP Series chairs. They offer slightly better features, but more generic styling. To browse all alternatives, check out our dedicated review on the subject:
Neochairs RAP Series big and tall Marvel chairs offer solid value for money. Most models cost less than $200 and come with solid features. The downside with chairs this cheap is the durability. Cheap chairs simply don’t last as long as expensive models. With heavy daily use, expect the padding to flatten slightly after around a year. Next to degrade after that will likely be the upholstery.
On the plus side, these chairs are spacious and comfortable. The leather feels thick and the build feels solid. They also offer excellent posture support for extra-large and extra-heavy bodies. If you need something cheap and sturdy for gaming or computing, RAP Marvel chairs are a good choice.
