Hot Toys Spider-Man (Scarlet Spider Suit) Sixth Scale Figure VGM34 Review

It may seem hyperbolic to say that Insomniac Games’ PS4 exclusive Spider-Man (2018) video game is one of the best multimedia representations of the wall crawler to date, truly capturing the spirit of the comic book. It might seem that way, but it well and truly is.  So when the game doubled-down on the enjoyment I was having by also allowing me to swap between the many outfits that Spider-Man has worn in his decades-long career, I was understandably pleased. When Hot Toys announced that they would be making figures of those various suits, most notably the Scarlet Spider?! I needed it RIGHT...

The Flash Speeds Into Collector Hands as Hot Toys Announces 1/6 Figure Pre-Order

“Run, Barry, run!” While fans of the DC Cinematic universe have been impatiently waiting for an Ezra Miller-lead Flash movie to somehow materialize after years of stops and stutters, Grant Gustin has been dependably chugging along as the CW’s Flash in the TV show of the same name. Considering how popular the show is and how long its been airing, it’s a little surprising that Hot Toys took this long to make a Sixth Scale figure of this iteration of the Flash. Whatever the case, the Scarlet Speedster has finally arrived! Premiering back in 2014, the show has been a fairly dependable amount...

Hot Toys completes lineup with Avengers: Endgame – Thor and Hulk Pre-Orders!

Praise Odin, Fat Thor has finally arrived! And he’s not alone. Two of the more controversial narrative decisions from Avengers: Endgame were to make Thor overweight and to make the Hulk smart. Fans were split down the middle whether or not they enjoyed the out-of-the-box directions. I would argue that, even if you would have preferred to see the Hulk smashing with abandon or Thor looking buff and heroic, you have to respect the filmmakers choosing to zig when you were convinced that they would zag.  Hot Toys has just given us even more cause to enjoy the film’s choices...

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Sovereign Knight Batman Review

With the release of the Sovereign Knight One:12 Collective Figure, Mezco marks the middle chapter of their own Batman “trilogy”; a unique take on the Caped Crusader that began with their Ascending Knight iteration, which was heavily inspired by the work of Bill Finger, and which will conclude with the recently solicited Supreme Knight, which borrows much from the works of Frank Miller. This figure, representing Batman at the apex of his crusade, borrows from multiple sources, such as the work of Jim Lee and Rocksteady Studios’ Batman: Arkham video games. The resulting look is something I’m not sure...

5 Things You Might Not Know About Hot Toys

Hot Toys has been around for the better part of 20 years, and in that time they have become the definitive sixth scale figure manufacturer in the world. Heck, some might argue that they’re the best toy company, period.

What If The Marvel Heroes We Love Were Played By Someone Else?

The Marvel “What If...?” series was a book I read as a kid that would put a spin on the normal for everybody’s favorite comic book characters. Taking the mythology of a character and changing one major detail was exciting and often times lead to a cool alternate take on that character. Lucky for us, Disney+ will be releasing a "What If...?" Series, with the first episode to be streaming in 2021. This series will follow the Marvel Universe anthology and apply the the classic twist to those movies. For instance, what if Peggy Carter was given the super...

5 X-Men 1/6 Scale Figures Toys Era Should Make Next

There's nothing sadder than a market that is begging to be tapped, but somehow goes ignored. Despite Hot Toys gaining the license to the Fox X-Men franchise of films years ago, they only managed to make seven Sixth Scale figures based off of them. Of those seven figures, four of them are Wolverine and three are Deadpool. That is all. A franchise filled with over forty characters ripe for the making, and we get two of them. Over and over and over. Sigh. It’s no surprise, then, that third party company Toys Era has been quite so successful capitalizing on the...
