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...

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 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...

NO ILLUSION! Hot Toys Announces Spider-Man: Far From Home Mysterio Figure for Pre-Order..

Yes, it’s been just over two months since the release of Spider-Man: Far from Home in theaters, but collectors were already giving up on seeing Hot Toys announce a sixth scale figure based on the film’s mysterious illusionist.  That might seem like jumping the gun, but Spider-Man fans have been burned before. Despite showing off a prototype of the Vulture, the villain from previous entry Spider-Man: Homecoming, no figure was ever actually solicited. So when what seemed to be a Mysterio prototype appeared in promotional photos for other Far From Home Spider-Man figures, people were still doubtful. All of the naysaying was for naught, apparently,...

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...

Sixth Scale Figure Upgrades: Worth the Extra Cash?

One of the best feelings as a collector is acquiring that grail piece you have had your heart set on. Getting that immortalization of one of your favorite characters from your favorite TV show, movie, game or even comic book is a satisfying feeling. Of course, with time, there comes newer technologies and ideas. Fans will make custom accessories or custom figures that either compliment the original release or, in some cases, put them to shame. With this in mind, Hot Toys and a number of other sixth scale figure or collectible companies will release a second,...
