Ever since Thor’s movie, I’ve been waiting for Hot Toys to announce Loki. A character briljantly performed by Tom Hiddleston.
The wait was long. Hope went up when I saw leaked images of the figure. But unfortunately no official announcement.
Then The Avengers came. The movie was an instant hit. One of the most succesfull movies all-time. So again hope went up. Hot Toys surely had to produce Loki this time around. Hot Toys did announce they would produce an Avengers line. But would Loki be one of them? Then word came out, Hot Toys cancelled Loki version from the Thor movie and instead confirmed Loki from The Avengers was being developed.
Now Hot Toys finally announced some great news! Loki will come out as a Hot Toys figure. Below are photo’s from the prototype.
The figure looks great! I really like this figure. It’s the version from the Avengers. I don’t mind. I like the costume better then from Thor’s movie. It’s like an armor verion of the original costume. I love the shoulder pads and the layering.
I love the sculpt although it doesn’t really look like Tom Hiddleston. It seems a trend in this Avengers line. You can always count on Hot Toys to deliver a good sculpt, but the latest ones from The Avengers dare just off to really resemble their actor counterparts. It could be their brothers, but not the actors themselves.
What is with that? A rush job to capitalize on the movie? I wonder how Tony Stark will look like and if it resambles Robert Downey. They can’t screw up this one, because they already released 9 sculpts of him. I still have hopes up for a good sculpt of the Black Widow and Hulk. Dispite of this, with a price tag of $ 19 more than Thor, Loki comes well above the $ 200 range. We are talking high-end collectibles, but these prices are getting insane. Last year’s Thor was $30 less!
Enjoy the promoproto’s of my, next to Hulk, most anticipated figure; Loki.
