This is the Hot Toys’s rescue version of Captain America from the movie Captain America: the First Avenger.
Long awaited and finally announced. But in another way I imaged.
I thought this figure would come out as a regular release. Instead, the lucky few attending the San Diego Comic Con can get their hands on this figure together with Angelica from Pirates of the Caribbean and Jim Gordon from The Dark Knight.
Both very, very awesome. I will post the Jim Gordon announcement later on.
I bet Sideshow will have this exclusive figure at pre-order pretty soon.
I digg this figure. A great miss in the previous release of Captain America was the headsculpt. This release as a great lifelike head sculpt of Chris Evans, who plays the character of Steve Rogers.
I really like the colour-scheme and love the leather bomber jacket.
This is Cap’s pre-star spangled, WWII outfit. And the costume designer really nailed it.
Cap is holding his triangular shield. A really nice nod to the first couple of comics of Captain America.
I don’t have any WWII soldiers to accompany him. That’s the only reason I won’t add him to my sixth scale collection. All the other [super-hero] figures in my collection are from present time. Somehow this figure would stand out beside them. True, I have a Captain America from the forties. But I really like his WWII ‘battle’ classic costume, and it looks like it still could be worn by Cap in present time.
Yeah, I need to draw the line somewhere. This looks like a great figure. Again, great colour-scheme, very contemporary, and spot-on head sculpt. But then there’s the price tag. I find $220 just to much for a figure packing not a lot of accessories.
Well, isn’t this a great surprise? Hot Toys just teased a sixth scale figure of Agent Coulson and a Chitauri footsoldier from The Avengers line.
I would very much like to add Coulson to my collection. I don’t really give that much for the footsoldier, however a pleasant surprise.
I like a ‘normal’ guy standing next to my superheroes.
This news make me wonder if I should buy the Nick Fury figure…?
Wallet says no.
The Coulson figure should be pretty straight forward. Normal Hot Toys Truetype body type. The clothes aren’t really complex. Only Coulson head sculpt and gun are the most work. I expect an official announcement pretty soon. And to see the figure early next year.
The Chitauri footsoldier, on the other hand, looks like will need a new bodytype. and a lot of R&D to get this figure right. Within the next 4 month I expect more news with a release somewhere mid-2013.
Wow. That’s more like it! Hot Toys just officially announced Black Widow from the Avengers line.
We got a Hot Toys Black Widow before. From the Iron Man II line.
At that time she was a must-have. A very hot figure. People were saying the figure captured Scarlett Johansson’s likeness very well.
There where some complaints, mostly about her breasts. So at the hands of some people she got a boob job. Not because they were small, but because were sitting to low.
Looking back at the old Black Widow figure now, I wonder who that Black Widow was. Sure she’s a hot lady, but doesn’t really look like Johansson.
So when the Avengers line was announced I saw a new change for a Black Widow. And a more accurate Scarlett Johansson.
Ow boy, The prototype images are promising. Hot Toy’s new Black Widow just looks awesome. The likeness of Scarlet Johansson is really close. I’d say the best in in the Avengers line so far. As far of accurate sculpts go. Hot Toys also uses a new body type for this figure. The proportions are more ‘balanced’. The figure has smaller breasts and head is slightly bigger compared to the previous Widow. I think this figure is smaller than the previous one. Who’s as tall as Spider-man and slightly smaller than Thor. While in fact Scarlett Johansson is a lot smaller than Helmsworth. I believe Hot Toys made the body height more accurate. After all, we all saw them standing side by side in the movie. Hot Toys can’t ignore the fact Black Widow has to be smaller and Thor taller.
Again this member from the Avengers also does not pack a lot of accessories. The price tag is reasonable. Compared to Loki and Captain America.
I can’t wait for the end of this year, when I have her in my hands. ;-)
Hot Toys is proud to present the 1/6th scale Black Widow Limited Edition Collectible Figurine from the smash hit The Avengers. The movie-accurate Black Widow collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Scarlett Johansson in the movie, highlighting the newly sculpted head, hair implantation, prominent body shape, highly detailed costume and accessories.
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.
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 fifth Marvel The Avengers clip premiered at MSN. This clip is featuring Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) who imprisoned a defiant, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) having some word over the Tesseract and power.
Thus far we have seen clips with incredible dialogue that will be featured in the film. Now, we have our first clip of The Avengers in action. Captain America and Thor doing battle with the aliens.
I am really excited about the upcoming Avengers. So wadda ya think of another clip? Robert Downey confronts Tom Hiddleston with a headcount.
