NO ILLUSION! Hot Toys Announces Spider-Man: Far From Home Mysterio Figure for Pre-Order..Jose Lopez
Yes, it’s been just over two months since the release of Spider-Man: Far from Home in theaters, but collectors were already giving up on seeing Hot Toys announce a sixth scale figure based on the film’s mysterious illusionist.
That might seem like jumping the gun, but Spider-Man fans have been burned before. Despite showing off a prototype of the Vulture, the villain from previous entry Spider-Man: Homecoming, no figure was ever actually solicited. So when what seemed to be a Mysterio prototype appeared in promotional photos for other Far From Home Spider-Man figures, people were still doubtful. All of the naysaying was for naught, apparently, as Mysterio is indeed happening.
There isn’t much to Quentin Beck, aka Mysterio, here. However, what we do get is pretty essential to the character.
I’m really digging the smoke effect diorama. Hot Toys probably could have gotten away with a regular old base, but the luminescent green smoke trails add to the mystique of the character and tell you a lot about him with just a glance.
The “illusion effect accessories” allow him to strike plenty of dynamic poses; making him appear to be the top shelf superhero he claims to be.
Finally, his fishbowl dome helmet, regardless of the unfortunate seam running through it, looks excellent. Adding in a light effect, really pushing the moodiness of the smoke inside, is a wonderful touch.
All in all, a great surprise for Spider-Man fans who might have given up on ever having the character in hand. This one is going to look amazing on the shelf in the Far from Homedisplay.

“I created Mysterio to give the world someone to believe in. I control the truth…Mysterio is the truth!” – Mysterio
Quentin Beck, a gifted but under-appreciated special effects artist. Chose to focus his skills on becoming Mysterio as the number one super hero in the world, and supplant himself over Iron Man. Coupled with his talent for chemistry, robotics and hypnotism, Mysterio’s convincing illusions on The Elementals blurred the line between reality and fantasy, to the point where the work seems almost supernatural in nature.
Today, Hot Toys is pleased to officially introduce the highly anticipated 1/6th scale Mysterio collectible figure from Spider-Man: Far From Home with highly-detailed gadgets that specifically counter Spider-Man’s abilities!
Masterfully crafted based on Mysterio’s appearance in the movie, the collectible figure features a newly developed helmeted head with incredible likeness, finely tailored cape and armors with luminous reflective elements, a pair of illusion effect accessories, smoke effect diorama accessories, and a movie-themed dynamic figure stand.
Mysterio has now arrived! Marvel fanatics; make sure you do not under any circumstances believe everything you see.
