Thor is the fourth announcement in the Hot Toys Avengers line.
The figure looks very much like the version from it’s own movie ‘Thor‘. There are subtle differences, however.
Thor is played by Chris Helmsworth. This is the second sculpt Hot Toys releases with the actor’s likeness. But it doesn’t really look more like Chris Helmsworth than the first version.
The first sculpt wasn’t perfect, but was more alike. What I do like is the seriousness in the expression instead of a blank stare. The head is smaller, which makes this new Thor look more impressive.
This Thor is more muscular, his armor seems to be made of more layers, his clothes are blueish instead of black. However off in terms of Chris likeness, the headskulpt is a good ‘Thor’. And let’s hope he doesn’t have a loose ankle as the previous release.
I might pass on this one, as in I’ve already got the Thor from his own movie, and I’ve got to save up for a Loki, Hulk and new Black Widow. And with regards his accessories, or rather say, lacking of, this figure seems to have a deep prize. Sideshow has him for pre-order at $200.00.
