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.

Hot Toys is proud to present the collectible figure of the 6th superhero from the hottest movie of the town – the 1/6th scale Loki Limited Edition Collectible Figurine of The Avengers from Marvel Studios. The movie-accurate collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Tom Hiddleston as Loki in the movie, highlighting the newly developed head sculpt, highly detailed costume, weapons and accessories.

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.

Hot Toys is proud to present the collectible figure of another superhero from the Marvel Studios – the 1/6th scale Thor Limited Edition Collectible Figurine from the upcoming The Avengers movie. The movie-accurate collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Chris Hemsworth as Thor in the movie, highlighting the newly developed head sculpt, muscular body, highly detailed costume, accessories and weapon. The Thor collectible stands approximately 32 cm tall, which is closer to the 1/6th scale of the movie character.

With The Avengers released over a week ago, we can now focus on the next highly anticipated super hero movie: The Amazing Spider-man.

The second, awesome, theatrical trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man, from Marc Webb’s reboot of the franchise, has been released by Sony Pictures.

Just around at two and a half minutes, it features action packed scenes, lot’s of web-slinging and tons of new footage. Including the Lizard! More of the story is revealed in this trailer.

I was a bit reserved about this new Spider-man movie, but after seeing this trailer I am very much looking forward to it! Enjoy the trailer. I know I did!

The film opens July 3 in 2D and 3D and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Irrfan Khan, Denis Leary, Chris Zylka, Campbell Scott, C. Thomas Howell, Embeth Davidtz and Annie Parisse.

Soon we have a Hulk.
If there’s one figure from the Hot Toys Avengers line I want, it’s the Hulk.

There’s much debate on whether he’ll have a rubber body or not.
According a recent interview by HK Figure Club with Howard Chan, Howard said Hulk is in progress, the body will not be fully rubber.
This still could mean the upper body and arms can be made of rubber.

Although looking fantastic, rubber has the tendency to fold ugly, ripple and tear with posing and wither over time. I would like my high-paying collectible to last longer than one year.
Time will tell.

Other highlights from the interview with Howard Chan are:

Another poster for The Amazing Spider-man, three day before the new trailer for the movie, set to hit theatres july 3rd.
Besides looking as a previous Spider-man 2 poster, it’s nothing new really. We’ve seen the image before and made it into a similar fanmade poster.
A few changes are added. The most obvious are: The reflective mirror lenses are replaced with bug-like ‘eyes’. There’s some blood/battle damage on the suit. The left foot is replaced.
Enjoy the hi-res version.
Looking familiar? Nice detail is Spider-man’s wounds are on the same places as in the Spider-man 2 movie poster.

The third announcement of collectible figurines from the Avengers movie, is Captain America.
Released by Hot Toys before for it’s own movie “Captain America: The First Avenger“, this time the captain has a modern outfit and a fully sculpted head of Chris Evans who plays the character in both movies.
It’s the first time Hot Toys releases a sculpt of an actor with his mouth open. Or in this case with gritting teeth. I feel the likeness of Chris Evans is so-so. It has something off… But I like the sculpt.
I really liked Cap’s WOII outfit. It made him look tough. This new costume has some getting used to it. And I’m still not used to it. It’s is very ‘Captain Amerca’ and more true to the comics that it WOII variant, but is doesn’t make him look moere like a ‘leader’ or is impressive.
.
As a Hot Toys figure, I am very much in doubt to get him or not. I already have the “First Avenger” Captain America. Which I really like. The Avengers Captain does have some nice features the Cap I already have doesn’t has. Like the sculpt, the battle damaged shield, better articulation and a modern look. Looking at some of the promo photos the outfit around abdomen does bend or fold in a strange way when posing the figure. It doesn’t look nice.
.
I guess it depends on the price. If within the same price range as Nick Fury, I might consider buying. Fact is, he’s pretty different from the previous release. In the meantime Hot Toys released a teaser for their new Avengers Thor figure. I seems to me he’s more of the same of the one I have. The sculpt has to be a lot better for me considering buying a new Thor. We’ll just have to wait and see. For this Captain America. I wanna wait what the new Black Widow and Iron Man mark VII will look like.
