Avengers: Age of Ultron Archives - Robot 6 @ Comic Book Resources
Hot Toys has unveiled its Avengers: Age of Ultron 1/6th-scale Hulk figure, which features a new head sculptures to reflect changes to the characters design in the upcoming Marvel Studios sequel.
The Hulk Deluxe Collectible Set boasts two newly developed angry and screaming head sculpts with rolling eyeballs, a specially painted muscular body with more than 20 points of articulation, an interchangeable non-articulated “Hulk smash” pose upper body, and two pairs of interchangeable palms.
Standing about 41 centimeters (16 inches) tall, the movie-accurate sculpture boasts 30 points of articulation, LED light-up head and upper body, one pair of palms with movable fingers, and an Avengers: Age of Ultron logo base with its own LED function.
When Hot Toys teased Sunday that its Artist Mix Collection would be revealed “very soon,” it meant very soon — as in this morning.
The high-end collectibles company kicked off its new product line with the debut of Avengers: Age of Ultron figures by Japanese toy designer Touma.
The first series features Iron Man Mark XLIII, Captain America, Hulkbuster, Ultron Prime and two versions of Ultron Sentry. According to Hot Toys, each Artist Mix bobble-head figure stands about 14 centimeters (about 5.5 inches) tall, except for the Hulkbuster, which towers at 20 centimeters (about 7.9 inches). A deluxe set will also be released featuring the Hulkbuster and Iron Man Mark XLIII.
On his personal YouTube channel, James Bruton has begun a Hulk-sized undertaking. Well, a Hulkbuster-sized undertaking, at any rate — he’s 23 videos into a 3D printing project to build his own WiFi enabled Hulkbuster Iron Man armor.
And that’s not all — Bruton’s armor is fully functional, as can be seen in a handful of the later installments when he tries it on for size. Jury’s still out on whether or not it could handle the Hulk himself, though; I suppose we’ll have to wait and see in his last video!
You can check out his first video below and the rest on his YouTube channel. Also check out his website, where he shows off many of his other products — which include an R2D2, an Alien xenomorph suit and a life-sized Iron Man MKVI costume armor, among others.
In an alternate, sunnier reality, the sequel to Marvel’s Avengers wouldn’t be about Tony Stark unintentionally unleashing a homicidal robot bent on eradicating humanity. Instead, it would center on one flexible man with a plan: to forge a group of heroes with broken dreams into … Earth’s Mightiest Dance Team.
Hey, it could work, as PistolShrimps demonstrates in the parody video Avengers 2: Step Up, which has a little fun with footage from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Hot Toys has revealed its movie-accurate Captain America action figure from Avengers: Age of Ultron. And, as you likely know by now, when the collectibles company says “movie-accurate,” it’s not joking around; you can count the pores on 1/6th-scale Chris Evans’ face.
Arriving in the second or third quarter of 2015, the figure comes with newly painted helmeted head sculpt, newly painted Steve Rogers head sculpt, more than 30 points of articulation, a metal shield, a helmet, magnets embedded in figure’s forearms and back for holding shield, numerous interchangeable hands, a tailored costume and stand.
Diamond Select Toys is continuing its history of Marvel Minimates with figures based on Avengers: Age of Ultron, unveiled this morning by Toybox.
The collectibles will arrives in the spring in two runs, priced at $10 per pack of two: One features Black Widow, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, two versions of Hawkeye (old and new costume), Ultron and a “Sub-Ultron.” The other, available from Toys “R” Us, exchanges the two Hawkeye figures for Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron arrives in theaters May 1.

In between uncovering Hydra plots and facing homicidal robots, Captain America took time to surprise a 9-year-old fan who’s embroiled in a battle of his own.
Kenny Botting, who underwent surgery in September for a brain tumor, has spent the past three weeks at Christopher’s Haven in Boston, which provides a home away from home for young cancer patients and their families while they undergo treatment at nearby hospitals (Massachusetts General Hospital is just next door).
Many fans will likely already be familiar with YouTube user Alex Luthor — he put together the epic Marvel Vs. DC movie trailer that cleverly spliced together footage from a number of sources to make it look like the two Cinematic Universes were doing battle. His latest effort is a fan-made trailer for the upcoming Inhumans film that knits together footage of Vin Diesel, Eva Green and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” stars Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, respectively.
If Hot Toys’ Little Groot wasn’t quite to your liking, perhaps we can interest you in the company’s line Avengers: Age of Ultron collectible figures, officially unveiled at Toy Soul 2014 in Hong Kong. The centerpiece is undoubtedly the 1/6th-scale Hulkbuster armor, promoted with a massive life-size — nearly 10-feet-tall! — version on the exhibit floor.
In addition, Hot Toys also revealed the Thanos figure from Guardians of the Galaxy. The Age of Ultron line also includes Iron Man Mark XLIII, Captain America, Thor, Hawkeye and Black Widow. See some of the images below, and even more on the Hot Toys Facebook page.
By now you’re likely familiar with the “Kids React” series, in which children and teens respond — not always favorably — to seeing a movie trailer for the first time. This week’s episode, featuring Avengers: Age of Ultron, doesn’t disappoint, as the reactions rang from excitement to disinterest to, in at least one case, outright dislike.
However, the most interesting part may be the the question portion, in which some of the participants acknowledge they’re aware the Avengers originated in comics books … something they don’t read. One kid even admits he’s been to a comic store, but only for toys.
Watching the gleefully low-budget, shot-for-shot remake of the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, it occurred to me that many of us would probably line up to watch this movie, as long as there was the promise of an after-credits scene.
OK, maybe not, but this sweded take on the teaser is every bit as entertaining as you would expect, with cardboard buildings (and doors and Hulkbuster armor), terrible wigs, crepe-paper speed effects, and what I’m pretty sure is processed cheese sauce doubling as molten iron.
If James Spader’s unsettling recitation of “I’ve Got No Strings” in the Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser left you reexamining your feelings about Disney’s Pinocchio, you’re definitely not alone.
However, the homicidal robot’s path of destruction doesn’t stop there: In the new animated parody from How It Should Have Ended, Ultron proceeds to stomp out any warm memories you may have of Cinderella, Aladdin, The Lion King and even Frozen. Clearly, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are powerless in the face of this threat.
Appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Paul Reubens not only confirmed a new Pee-wee Herman movie, he stepped into character to provide a new voice track for Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer — providing the Marvel sequel with a little extra … gravitas.
If the Blu-ray release doesn’t include an option that allows viewers to choose between James Spader and Reubens as the voice of Ultron, then somebody at the studio as asleep at the wheel.
By now you’ve likely seen the “special look” at Avengers: Age of Ultron that aired last night during Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but have you watched it recreated in LEGO? If not, you’ve come to the right place.
This LEGO fan, who last week gave the same treatment to the teaser trailer, has already turned his attention to this new footage, which opens with a lighthearted scene in which Earth’s Mightiest Heroes take turns trying to lift Thor’s hammer. Note the Spider-Man cameo at the 1:19 mark. (What, you didn’t see that in the original?)
