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...

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. That opinion is definitely up for debate, but what is not is the fact that there’s a whole lot more to Hot Toys than some collectors might know. Perhaps you’re aware of every tidbit on this list, or you know just a few. Either way, sit back and relax as we spotlight five lesser-known facts only true collectors know about...

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 Star Wars – Jawa and EG-6 Power Droid set up for Pre-Order!

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 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.

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,...

8 Marvel Video Game Characters that Hot Toys Needs to Make

Marvel Comics fans like me had a very difficult time containing our excitement when Hot Toys revealed that they had obtained the license to Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man title for the Playstation 4. Not only were we going to get a Video Game Masterpiece figure of the Advanced Suit that was designed for the game, but we would also possibly get figures of every alternate skin that was available to Spider-Man. This was amazing all on its own, but then months later, we learned that we would also be getting characters from the hit Marvel mobile games, Netmarble’s Future Fight...
