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,...

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,...

Most excellent! Blitzway ‘Bill and Ted’ and ‘Zorro’ Sixth Scale Figures Up for Pre-Order..

Sixth-scale figure manufacturer Blitzway have announced for pre-order three modern film icons that will soon be available to join our collections..  First up is Antonio Banderas’ take on legendary Mexican vigilante Zorro, from the 1998 film, The Mask of Zorro. Despite being a box office success, the film seems to have flown under the radar amongst action fans, which is a pity. Banderas brings a playful side to Zorro (technically, Zorro’s successor) that fits the character aptly, and that friskiness is apparent in Blitzway’s figure.  The face sculpt captures the actor quite accurately, and the wry grin on the masked head is...

How To Spot Fake Hot Toys

One of the most appealing aspects of being a sixth scale figure collector is the thrill of the hunt and finding that particular figure or piece "in the wild" that you have been lusting over for weeks, months or even years in some cases. The satisfaction of completing one section or aspect of your collection (like a complete line-up or team of characters) could almost be described as a high. Especially if you find that special new pick-up at a lower than average market price. When is the price too good to be true, though? While low priced listings...
