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.
This news has me in doubt to buy this Red Skull figure or not.
I loved Hugo Weaving performance in The Captain America movie. And the Red Skull is the most iconic villain of Captain America.
I already have Hot Toys Captain America (review up soon), so it would be nice to let them face off.
The sculpt of Hugo Weaving is most remarkable, very beautiful, as is the sculpt of the red skull. The overall feel of this figure is nice, but…
…On the other hand, Red Skull never intrigued me as a villain. Also, having a nazi, or a man in a black leather trench-coat at display somehow bothers me.
If I would buy this figure it would be soley on the sculpt of Hugo Weaving.
And maybe the Tesseract.
But would that alone be enough to justify to spend €185 on this figure?
Having missed the first release of the mark I from Hot Toys, this is welcomed news.
I find the Mark I one of the best and most iconic armor from the Iron Man line. Why I didn’t bought the figure back in 2009, is beyond me.
I just ordered my first sixth scale figure from Hot Toys as try-out; the Iron Man mark III. So not having this figure in my possession yet (the mark III came out in february 2009), I guess it was too much ordering the mark I. I still was not convinced 12″ figures were the toys for me.
Clothing on the figures were my main concern.
The Hot Toys Wolverine changed all that, but that was a few months later.
Back to this figure. Al ready got him pre-ordered. This is a must have for my little Iron Man collection.
Soon I’ll have the mark II, III, V and VI complete with The mark I as topping.
Besides, this figure looks kick-ass! The head sculpt of Robert Downey Jr. is just amazing.
So here are the details:
As I mentioned in my review Hot Toys Spider-man, I really like the figure. The Hot Toys Spider-man is just fun.
I recon this figure is no different. Maybe Hot Toys upgraded the figure under the water here and there, but basically for my it’s just the same Spider-man… Just Black.
…With a striking head sculpt of Tobey Maguire
…With an awesome base of Sandman
I think I would pass this guy. For me the reasons are:
-The price. This one is almost €80 more that the first Spider-man. I guess most have to do with the head sculpt and the huge sandman base, but come on. I am not paying over €200 for this figure.
-This is not my ‘black’ Spider-man. He was ‘ok’ in the movie, but not as iconic for me as the version in the comics is.
-I rather save my money for the Venom figure. Which I’m hoping they will announce sometime during this year.
Maybe I’ll regret it, this figure does look nice.
Here’s the official:
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.
Amid high anticipation, Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys are proud to present the Superman 12-inch Figure from the 1978 classic superhero film Superman. The movie-accurate Superman collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Christopher Reeve as The Man of Steel, highlighting the authentic head sculpt, movie-accurate costume and detailed light-up figure stage imitating the Fortress of Solitude.
To coincide with May 4th, also known as “Star Wars Day”, Lucasfilm has made a major Star Wars announcement. This midday, the company revealed the details of the complete Star Wars saga Blu-Ray box set. Below is the full press release from the teaser website, along with an embedded teaser video from YouTube. New images, including Blu-Ray box art and documentary promotional artwork, will be added throughout the day, as well as any new information that becomes available.
I must say upfront, I really like the cover art for the individual trilogy’s. It’s has a modern feels to it. The collection case however, has a complete other style, but nails the ‘Star Wars’ atmosphere and feel.
I’m also very glad they inserted documentary’s I have on age-old VHS video tapes of which the image quality is non watchable anymore.
