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...

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...

Hot Toys has made so many Star Wars sixth scale figures at this point, that it becomes easy to forget that there are plenty of characters left to do in the franchise. While getting multiple releases based on leads such as Luke Skywalker and Han Solo will never stop being very welcome, it’s the supporting players that help flesh out the “galaxy far, far away”. That reason alone is why I’m so excited that Hot Toys has announced the pre-order for a Jawa and the EG-6 Power Droid set. Let’s be honest, the Power Droid, as pretty as it is,...

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 Figures That Look Identical To the Actor

Attempting to capture an actor’s likeness in action figure form can be an incredible feat. More often than not, some tiny detail or imperfection in an actor’s chin or nose will fail to be properly reproduced, throwing off the entire sculpt. Sometimes a figure will succeed from one angle, but when viewed from another, they fall flat. The Hong Kong-based toy manufacturer Hot Toys has long been known as the top name in movie collectibles. Their sixth scale figures seem to work some manner of dark magic that allows them to steal a little bit of the actors’ souls,...
