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 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...

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,...

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...

Top 5 90s Television Shows That Need 1:6 Scale Figures

For more than a decade now it seems Hollywood has had a bit of an obsession with the remake of classic movies from the 90's era. But where's the love for the television shows of the 1990's that helped raise and babysit a generation of youth after school? While the remake of a multi-season show that is still syndicated is unlikely, it would be nice to see Hot Toys or another 1:6 scale figure manufacturer grab a license or two in this space and see what sticks with collectors. While Hot Toys may need to stick to the bread...

Hot Toys Marvel Wishlist

"With great success comes an overflow of great toys and collectibles." That's not quite the quote but well, you get it. With the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at the box office it's no surprise that toy and collectible manufacturers worldwide are jumping at the opportunity to cash in. For a lot of these companies, the Marvel license and the products they produce under it are in many cases the top revenue earners. Hot Toys, like other collectible companies, has enjoyed a surge in popularity largely due to their attachment to the Marvel license. When you produce such...

How To Clean Your Hot Toys and 1:6 Scale Figures

Even if you display your Hot Toys collection behind glass in a showcase the build-up of dust and other particles overtime is inevitable. Even collectors who go the extra mile with weather stripping on their IKEA DETOLF cabinets (a popular display choice - see the How to Display your Hot Toys collection article for more info) still have to go through the ritual of cleaning their collection once or twice a year. But what's really the best way to go about cleaning your Hot Toys figures to avoid the risk of damage with the least time exhausted on your...

Where Are All The Video Game Sixth Scale Figures?

I don’t exactly consider myself a gamer by any stretch with only a somewhat more than passing interest in video games. And on some days, it seems like the 1:6 scale figure industry shares the same outlook. Companies like Hot Toys and Sideshow Collectibles seem far more focused on producing figures based on popular films and licenses like Star Wars and Marvel than exploring more video game related releases which can leave gamers high and dry. This article will take a look at some of the cool 1:6 scale video game figures that are on the market for pre-order...
