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 Pennywise IT Chapter Two Official Announcement

You might remember the sneak peek we got of a Pennywise sixth scale figure from Hot Toys at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 if you were following our coverage of the event this past summer. As soon as the images hit social media horror fans everywhere were holding their breath to see if it got an official pre-order announcement or wound up the same as many before it like Vulture and countless others (have a look at our Top 10 Unreleased Hot Toys Prototypes for a deeper look at other canceled figures). The good news is that Hot Toys today...

Hot Toys gives you a Second Chance to go Homemade with Spider-Man!

Second chances can be funny things. We rarely get them, but sometimes life surprises you and you get more than one.  I remember having the original Hot Toys releases of the Tech Suit and the Homemade Suit from Spider-Man: Homecoming in my cart, and for one reason or another, I skipped buying them. Fast forward passed years of regret and self-flagellation, and despite all odds, Hot Toys has given me (and you) a second chance at both figures.  The Tech Suit was re-released a few months ago as the Far From Home Movie Promo Edition, and today we have a new pre-order for the...

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...

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. 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 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,...

A Sith Lord returns and a piece of Iron Man’s heart as Hot Toys announces two new releases!

Fans who actually gave the Solo: A Star Wars Story film a chance (I thought it was great fun, sue me!) were met with shock at the surprise return of the sadistic Darth Maul to the Star Wars films. Just as surprising, considering Solo’s abysmal box office and unfortunate fan reaction, Hot Toys has just announced a Maul, based on his appearance in the film, as the newest entry into their Sixth Scale Star Wars line.  The former Sith Lord comes with plenty of exciting features and accessories, chief among them that “in motion” lightsaber blade attachment. I knew we...

Hot Toys Spider-Man: Far From Home “Upgraded Suit” Sixth Scale Figure up for Pre-Order!

A new Spider-Man film can mean many things: a great time at the movie theatre, a new installment in the MCU’s overarching storyline, and, of course, a new Hot Toys figure announcement. Much like the previously announced Stealth Suit, the Spider-Man: Far from Home Spider-Man Upgraded Suit Sixth Scale collectible figure will boast several display options for Spidey. This will include a brand-new unmasked portrait based on the likeness of Tom “Peter Parker” Holland and what looks to be a new design for his web-wings.   Another recent alteration to the costume is Spider-Man’s new color scheme. Harkening back to the original...

Hot Toys Figures We Need To See Made

Hot Toys releases a lot of 1:6 scale figures in a given year from a number of different movies and sometimes even a television show or two. 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...
