Archief voor tags: 12″


One of my favorite scenes in Iron Man 2 was the fight on the racetrack in which we first saw the suitcase armor. A nod to the comics wherein Tony Stark hides his Iron Man armor in a suitcase.
One of the fan favorite Iron Man armors featured in the films. The mark V is full of details. Much more than its previous versions. The mark V is supposed to be made of inter-lapsing layers as it’s decompressed from a suitcase size to an cover a human body. The colour scheme is attractive as the red works nice with the silver parts. It’s seems more sophisticated and less ‘hot rod’-like than the red-gold armors. It’s definitely more sleek.

Hot Toys just officially announced the long awaited and highly anticipated Iron Man series figure.
This thing is gonna be huge! Just missing a half  meter by 6 cm. We also know now, the Obadiah Stane is not a loose figure and cannot be removed from the armor. He’s only a torso with a head scuplt. However very realistic, I do not feel this prototype sculpt captures the likeness of Jeff Bridges accuratly. Since this is a prototype, still a lot can change. Just look at the Resident Evil Jill Valentine and Black Widow figures from Hot Toys.
In short: this thing is a monster, it’s heavy and it’s huge, so is the pricetag. Sideshow has it up for preorder at an astonishing $ 480!
I am excited, and I want it so I really have to save up. But I feel the price a too tall, even for this figure. Beside his sheer size, it has not much of accessoires.
.
Anytway, we’ve already seen him at the SDCC, but here are all the details:
Hot Toys is proud to present the 1:6th scale Iron Monger Collectible Figure from the movie Iron Man.

Hot Toys’ first in the line of the new Marvel Studio’s movie Thor.
Other than Thor himself and Odin, Hot Toys made no further announcements for other figures in the line. It’s getting tough to find Thor, so if you see him somewhere, I suggest buy him and you won’t be disappointed.
As for Thor’s dad, Odin the All father, is still widely available. However cool that figures is, I didn’t pre-order him. Money is a factor but also the focus of my collection. Loki I would buy. Or Lady Sif and maybe the warriors Three. But alas, we have to do with farther and son.

This is the New Goblin from “Spider-Man 3″, played by James Franco in the movie. However a cool looking figure and the awesome sculpt of James Franco, the figure is not spend on me.  It’s just not the Green Goblin I would like to see next to my Spider-Man. I didn’t like the design in the movie and I dont like it as a 12″ figure. besides, the hoover board is just to lame. I prefer The Green Goblin 1, with a little MOD on some purple cloth or Docter Octopus.

Anyway, Hot Toys is proud to present the 1/6th scale New Goblin Limited Edition Collectible Figurine from the Spider-Man 3 movie. The movie-accurate New Goblin collectible is specially crafted based on the image of James Franco in the movie, highlighting the authentic head sculpt, highly detailed costume, weapons and accessories.

Astonishing! That was my first reaction after seeing the newly released photos of Hot Toys’ Superman 1/6th scale figure based on the likeness of Christopher Reeve. In recent years, Hot Toys has shown a tremendous aptitude for making life-like 1/6th scale figures of our favorite heroes and villains of film. From perfect costuming to intricate paintwork and sculpting, these collectibles have become the pinnacle of high-end toy collecting. Other companies have licensed the likeness of Christopher Reeve in recent months, and have even released their own movie-versions of the Man of Steel, but regardless of how well done those have been – this is the definitive version. No question.

A year ago I discovered the power or the sixth scale of 12″ figures.

After seeing Machiko, the She-Predator from Hot Toys. I fell in love and thus she became the first 12″ figure in my collection. I was in astonished about the details en articulation of the this figure. The sculpt was unprecedented. But then again, these figures aren’t cheap.
Curious to see how the 1/6 scale figures hold up in the Star Wars franchise I bought my second 12″figure: Sideshow’s Stormtrooper.  Stormtroopers always where one of my favorite characters in Star Wars, so I was playing safe.
I got to know a little more about the world of the 12″ figures. About the different companies, qualities and prices. Also my first 12″ superhero, Iron Man Mark III, was a fact.
