The Biggest Superhero Films That Didn't Happen, Part 2
Comic Books, Film
“Cute” isn’t a word typically associated with Marvel’s disfigured Merc With a Mouth, but there’s little denying it applies to Hot Toys’ new Deadpool Cosbaby.
The Hong Kong toymaker has followed the reveal of its 1/6th-scale Deadpool action figure with the first official look at this 3.75-inch bobblehead collectible, which comes complete with its own katana.
If you’ve been having a bit of trouble with a certain super-powered alien with a red cape, this life-size Armored Batman statue may be just what you need. Think of it as a scarecrow for Kryptonians.
Officially unveiled by Hot Toys on the heels of its 1/6th-scale Armored Batman action figure, this Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice statue stands 6 feet 4 inches tall (more than 7 feet on its base), and features a head with light-up eyes, a fabric cape and, naturally, movie-accurate details (right down to the facial stubble). The base also lights up.
If you’re saving up to buy just one higher-priced Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice collectible, it’s likely going to be this: Hot Toys’ Armored Batman 1/6th-scale figure. That’s not meant as a slight toward any of the other releases, it’s just … come on, this Armored Batman looks pretty spectacular.
After teasing us last month with shots from the floor of Toy Soul 2015, Hot Toys has released the first official images of the figures from its Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Artist Mix Collectible Set.
Standing 13 centimeters tall, the Batman and Superman figures combine the look of the two heroes from the upcoming Warner Bros. film with the distinctive style of Japanese character designer Touma: While boasting oversize heads, arms and hands, they also sport highly detailed costumes.
Ensuring that fans will soon have to build their own Hall of Armor, Hot Toys has unveiled another Iron Man 1/6th-scale action figure — and, perhaps predictably, it’s pretty stunning.
The latest entry in the Hong Kong toymaker’s “House Party Protocol” collection, it’s based on the Mark XV armor from Iron Man 3, nicknamed “Sneaky” because of its cloaking system.
If you weren’t already planning to buy the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Rey figure from Hot Toys, you probably will now, as the collectible has received substantial upgrades.
First, you can forget the “interchangeable looks,” as you’ll now be able to simply apply the desert gear head wrap with goggles to the headsculpt. Second, and most importantly, Luke Skywalker’s blue lightsaber will be included among Rey’s accessories (no need to worry about spoilers now, right?).
If dialogue like “Tell me … do you bleed?” is too grim for your tastes, just imagine it being uttered by this cute pint-sized Armored Batman figure from Hot Toys’ upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice lineup.
Previously glimpsed in photos from Toy Soul 2015, the Armored Batman and Superman Cosbaby Collectible Set will enable you to reenact the Bat-Signal scene from the trailer (a tiny Bat-Signal is included!), only maybe with a dramatically less-grave voice. Maybe something closer to baby talk.
Based on the design from the upcoming film starring Ryan Reynolds, the figure boasts 30 points of articulation, a meticulously tailored costume with weathering effects, a new head sculpt with five interchangeable eye pieces (each with a different expression), 12 interchangeable palms, the antihero’s signature pistols and katanas (plus a dagger and two shurikens), and a display stand.
If you thought that following the release last week of The Force Awakens we might get a brief holiday respite from new Star Wars toys, think again. Hot Toys has unveiled its upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens 1/6th-scale Finn action figure and — better still! — the Finn & First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper Set.
So, yes, sometime between the second and third quarters of 2016, you’ll be able to reenact that confrontation on Takodana.
Toy Soul 2015 is proving to be a treat for collectors, even if they aren’t in Hong Kong. Following the first look at 1/6th-scale figures from Deadpool and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Hot Toys has premiered the prototypes for its line of Captain America: Civil War collectibles.
No sooner did Hot Toys announce its new Deadpool 1/6th-scale action figure, based on the upcoming film, than the first images of the collectible surfaced from Toy Soul 2015, which just kicked off in Hong Kong.
Although no additional information accompanies the images, they do allow fans to scrutinize the details and at least some of the accessories — a pistol, belt, sword and scabbard for starters — and dream a little. And maybe salivate.
After teasing us on Monday, Hot Toys wasted little time in fully revealing its first 1/6th-scale action figures for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Making their official debuts this weekend at Toy Soul 2015 in Hong Kong, the Batman and Superman figures are of course movie-accurate, based on the likenesses of stars Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck.
Ahead of the official debut on Friday at Toy Soul 2015 in Hong Kong, Hot Toys has unveiled the first images of its Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 1/6th-scale action figures and Batmobile.
Expect more photos later in the week, but for now we get a look at both the exterior and interior of the (of course) highly detailed Batmobile, as well as a blurry shot of two of the Dark Knight and Man of Steel figures.
After unveiling Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma and enough First Order Stormtroopers to fill a battalion, Hot Toys is turning the spotlight on the Resistance with its Star Wars: The Force Awakens 1/6th-scale Rey and BB-8 Collectible Set.
Now, you can buy the incredibly realistic action figure based on Daisy Ridley by itself, but come on, everyone wants the adorable little droid, too.
The world certainly doesn’t need another Iron Man action figure — there are already more than you can count — but Hot Toys’ new Iron Man 3 Mark XXVI Gamma Armor may be difficult for collectors to pass up. How else are they going to complete that Hall of Armor?
Part of the Hong Kong toymaker’s “House Party Protocol” collection, the 1/6th-scale figure recreates Tony Stark’s Heavy Construction Suit Upgrade, designed to withstand extreme temperatures, electrical surges and gamma radiation (hence the nickname “Gamma”).
