10 Tips for Posing Hot Toys Figures to Enhance Your Display

The beauty of collecting Hot Toys figures is that as a collector you have the option to re-pose your figures and change your collectibles display on a routine basis if you wish. Collectors typically belong to one of two schools of thought here: there’s a group who keep their figures in “museum poses;” more stoic with the figure standing still & upright usually or “dynamic poses;” a more active and engaging display. A percentage of collectors swear by these museum style poses and typically say it’s for fear of damaging their figure or weakening the joints overtime. While this...

5 Sixth Scale Figures Hot Toys Really Should Reissue

Collecting high-end action figures can be unforgiving. Oftentimes, when you have a chance to grab a release, that opportunity truly is singular. In the world of limited-edition collectibles, there aren’t many second shots or do-overs. This can be frustrating at times. As time goes by, production techniques evolve, becoming more sophisticated, allowing companies like Hot Toys to make better and better looking figures. Looking back at an older release can be disappointing, either because you can only imagine how improved it would look today or because you just can’t afford a rare figure that you missed when it first...

Hot Toys Brings the Dark Side with their Sixth Scale Sith Trooper figure

It was always inevitable that we’d be able to get our grubby, Nerf herder paws on the new Hot Toys Star Wars: Sith Trooper figure.  Now, when I say “we”, I’m referring to those like myself who weren’t lucky enough to attend the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con. The sixth scale Sith Trooper, clad in striking red and black armor, saw an Advance Release edition that attendees of the convention were able to purchase then and there.  Tangled up with feelings of envy and suffering was a fear that, possibly, they wouldn’t release a regular version to the public. What would I do? Now,...

Hot Toys PS4 Spider-Man Advanced Suit (VGM031) Review

When I first learned that Hot Toys had gained the license to the PlayStation 4 Exclusive Spider-Man video game, I could hardly contain my excitement. As much as I have enjoyed the company’s sixth scale Spider-Man figures in the past, those were all based on movies. Now, I like a Spider-Man film as much as the next person, but my heart will always lie with the original comic books. This Video Game Masterpiece series is still not technically based on the comics, but the game contains plenty of alternate skins that allow you to give your Spidey avatar different...

When it comes to pop culture like comics, television and movies there will always be a character that says something to you. A character that really speaks to something deep inside of you and leaves a lasting impression. One of the worst feelings for a collector of sixth scale figures or other collectibles is when you can’t find a good representation of that character you lust for. For fans of science fiction movies and television shows this is unfortunately a norm with Hot Toys and other major companies typically sticking to the popular licenses from Marvel, DC Comics and...

Hot Toys Princess Leia (Endor) & Wicket Returns the Jedi to Your Shelves

After years of releases in their Star Wars Movie Masterpieces line, Hot Toys has finally gotten around to releasing the most important character in the franchise.

Plastic vs Diecast: The Evolution of Iron Man Hot Toys

My first Hot Toys figure was the original Iron Man release from the original film back in 2008. At the time, I bought the Hot Toys Iron Man Mark III MMS75 for $160 USD brand new. Fast forward to 2019 and the evolution of Hot Toys Iron Man figures has changed the look, feel and pricing of these figures exponentially. One of the biggest component to this change is the introduction of the use of diecast into the Iron Man figure. But is this new change a gimmick, or something crucial for every figure? Side-by-side comparison of the Hot Toys...
