Avengers: Endgame Hot Toys Releases Stacking Up!Paul
We are still T-minus 2 weeks away from the release of Avengers: Endgame in theaters worldwide but Hot Toys and other collectible and toy manufacturers are gearing up for the big day announcing new products and shipping orders to retailers everywhere with their “first wave” of new products. There has been a number of different leaks featuring products from companies like LEGO, Hasbro and a number of others including sneak peeks that leaked of a few Hot Toys releases that have now since been put up for pre-order putting the mystery and rumors to rest. The release of Avengers: Endgame will mark the end of an era within the Marvel Cinematic Universe and there’s no shortage of fan theories circulating that key players like Iron Man or Captain America (heck, even both) could finally meet their match. Whether they perish or not, it’s a very real possibility that Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans will not be returning to the big screen in future Marvel flicks and for a lot of fans that’s a big deal. For fans looking to immortalize their favorite Marvel heroes in Hot Toys fashion there is definitely going to be no shortage of sixth scale figure releases to coincide with this movie and the Movie Masterpiece Series figure announcements have already begun rolling out..
Iron Man Hot Toys have always been a cash cow for the company so it’s only fitting that they would kick-off the Avengers: Endgame Hot Toys releases with an Iron Man figure announcement and this time it’s the all-new Iron Man Mark LXXXV (Avengers: Endgame) Sixth Scale Figure that appears in the upcoming flick. Judging by what we have seen in trailers and from product announcements it appears we will see both the Mark L and Mark LXXXV Iron Man armor types in the movie. The better question though is: where are all the Iron Man body armors that occurred after Mark L but before the Mark LXXXV? Many fans and Iron Man Hot Toys collectors are suspicious of the fact that we could see another ‘Hall of Armor’ and ‘House Party Protocol’ type situation in the film where Tony Stark uses a number of different Iron Man armors to aid in the fight against Thanos or whatever other foe they may find themselves up against. The response from most Hot Toys collectors regarding the reveal of the figure was more or less the same – “good to see Iron Man return to a more classic, chunky comic book look!” We couldn’t agree more and can’t wait to get our hands on this Hot Toys release come 2020 when it finally releases to the public.
It looks like a new barber isn’t the only thing Hawkeye found in the time leading up to Avengers: Endgame but he got his hands on a completely new and revamped outfit, too. One “cool factor” that the character was always missing to some degree was that sense of mystique about him because most super heroes wear a mask or a suit of some kind but his outfit in previous films was always very plain jane. This ninja like revamp for Hawkeye – Deluxe Version (Avengers: Endgame) Sixth Scale Figure looks absolutely stunning and the contrast between the black and the gold/yellow in the uniform really makes it stand out. Based on product photos posted by Hot Toys the figure seems to have a great point of balance which should make for some interesting poses for those of you who appreciate that. The Deluxe version of this Hot Toys figure comes with an alternate display option (the helmet/hood) but even if you opt for the standard version the head sculpt included is absolutely breathtaking. Easily hands down the best and most accurate likeness we have ever seen of Jeremy Rimmer.
Well it’s about damn time! It looks like 1:6 scale figure collectors are finally getting their wish with Hot Toys finally releasing a sixth scale version of Nebula as she will be seen in Avengers: Endgame. Her outfit looks very similar in color and style to what we saw in previous films (Avengers: Infinity War and even in the Guardians of the Galaxy as well) and the robotic arm looks to be as accurate as it needs to be and similar in style to what we saw with the prototype of the Alita (Alita: Battle Angel) Sixth Scale Figure that Hot Toys previously announced many months ago at San Diego Comic-Con 2018. For fans of the Guardians of the Galaxy or just anyone looking to get a complete line-up from the Marvel Cinematic Universe before any big changes occur it’s nice to see that goal is now possible without having to invest an enormous amount of time and/or money creating a custom Nebula sixth scale figure. The Nebula (Avengers: Endgame) Sixth Scale Figure is now up for Pre-Order alongside the other releases and don’t be surprised if this figure sells out before the pre-order phase concludes at most major retailers.
Another Hot Toys figure announcement from Avengers: Endgame is one of the War Machine armors we will see featured in the upcoming film. Yes, you read that correctly: one of the armors we will see in the movie which means we will get a look at a number of different War Machine armors in the same movie. This particular version of the figure is the War Machine Mark VI (Avengers: Endgame) Sixth Scale Figure which by the looks of it is the more “streamlined” and aerodynamic design. The other design we got a look at in Avengers: Endgame concept art and the earliest trailer of the film appears to be a lot more substantial or “bulky” design that more Hot Toys collectors tend to prefer when making a purchase for this character. That being said, if the War Machine from Captain America: Civil War is any indication (which is similarly a smaller body proportion armor type) then this figure will sell out just like previous offerings and start to climb in price like the others have. We should see another Hot Toys War Machine announcement sometime after the release of the movie – maybe even multiple if product leaks we have seen elsewhere prove to be true.
And last but certainly not least is the updated Hot Toys release of the iconic Thanos and this time he’s sporting a fall armored look and ready for what looks like some intense combat with a sword in his right hand and the gauntlet proudly on his left. Back when Hot Toys originally announced and revealed pictures of Thanos from Avengers: Infinity War the main complaint and request from Hot Toys collectors and fans was for a version of the character that looked less casual Friday and more let’s take over the world. Hot Toys has answered that call with the announcement of their latest Thanos 1:6 scale figure as the character will be seen in the upcoming film. Although there are many theories about how Avengers: Endgame is going to play out it’s pretty clear that Thanos is suited up and ready for whatever the Avengers are going to throw at him but the question is, do you have the will to resist a Pre-Order?
