What a great news! Hot Toys will be releasing figures based on the Avengers movie, coming out this april (Europe).
First of the line is SHIELD director Nick Fury, performed by non other than Samual L. Jackson.
This is a fairly basic figure, so I am not sure I’m willing to pay €180 for this figure. Sure it as some accessories, I just don’t find the figure that exciting. I feel the head-sculpt of Jackson could be better. His head is too thick. It would be ok just to see the figure as Nick Fury instead of Jackson. But if I am paying this kind of money, the likeness should be more accurate.
But he is initiator of the Avengers Initiative and director of SHIELD. And that would be great if you get figures of Agent Coulson and Maria Hill. However, I think that would be unlikely.
So that leave to the one really plus: One (1) silver suitcase with light-up Tesseract (Cosmic Cube) and patterns inside (battery operated).
I love the Avengers and I am already assembling them with my Hot Toys collection. So it would be cool to have Nick Fury besides my Black Widow and maybe Hawkeye, Coulson and Hill.
I feel I can wait with pre-ordering for more announcements being made and just make that decision when this figure gets released.
Hot Toys is proud to present it’s first limited edition collectible inspired by the highly anticipated film The Avengers. Nick Fury, the director of S.H.I.E.L.D. comes to life in this movie-accurate figure; specially crafted using the image of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.
