10 Sci-Fi / Fantasy Characters Hot Toys Needs To Make

When it comes to pop culture like comics, television and movies there will always be a character that says something to you.

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.

We have even seen some figures launch from their Videogame Masterpiece line of figures but very few to date. Despite the onslaught of new releases if you’re anything like me then you’ve probably said to yourself, “Gee, I wish Hot Toys would make a figure of this character” or “Darn, it sure would be great if Hot Toys would finish this team off.” After all, Hot Toys is somewhat notorious for not...
