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...

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 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...

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,...
