The Homelander Arrives To Save The Day Thanks To Star Ace ToysJose Lopez
Star Ace Toys now has the license to Amazon’s The Boys series, which means fans and collectors have an official option for their sixth scale figures based on the characters. They’ve already placed up the Butcher for preorder and now, they’re announcing his archenemy, Homelander!
There have been plenty of “Superman Gone Bad” characters over the decades; even the Man of Steel himself has played the part in alternate universe tales. Homelander, however, takes that idea and completely runs with it in a way that makes it totally his own.
Actor Antony Starr fills the character with so much twisted depth that it’s a joy to watch. His likeness is well-done by the sculptors and painters over at Star Ace. While the Standard release will offer one portrait, the Deluxe is where its at with three different portraits, including one with an LED light-up feature for the eyes to mimic his laser vision.
Both this Homelander figure and the aforementioned Butcher are the obvious beginner entries for this line, but I’m eager now to see who Star Ace will reveal next. A Hughie and a Starlight seem likely, but I would love to see Queen Maeve. Here’s hoping!
The Star Ace Toys The Boys – Homelander Sixth Scale Figure is available for preorder now in both a Standard Version and a Deluxe Version. Both releases are slated to drop in Q2, 2022.
