hot toys-ca3

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.

If you’ve been searching for more details about Hot Toys’ “movie accurate” Little Groot — c’mon, who hasn’t been? — look no further than Showcase Collectibles’ video showcase, which promises the figure “in action.”

That means a demonstration of the moveable arms, designed to allow you to replicate poses from the meme-launching mid-credits scene from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. There’s also a display of the three interchangeable heads, permitting Groot to be displayed with a smile, a neutral look or “a wide-mouthed grin.”

There have been quite a few excellent depictions — both official and unofficial — of dancing baby Groot from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and it was only a matter of time before Hot Toys decided to try its hand at one. The toy company, known for its incredibly detailed and accurate action figures from Marvel Studios films, has announced a Little Groot collectible is in the works, featuring three interchangeable head sculpts, special paint application, and movable arms and body to help replicate his dancing skills from the end of the blockbuster.

Hot Toys goes claws out with Wolverine ‘Days of Future Past’ figure

Hot Toys has unveiled its alarmingly incredibly life-like 1/6th-scale Wolverine collectible action figure from X-Men: Days of Future Past, out now on Blu-ray and DVD (synergy!). As you can see, this is future Wolverine, so if you were hoping for swingin’ ’70s Logan, you may be out of luck.

“The movie-accurate collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Hugh Jackman as the future Wolverine in the movie,” the description states, “featuring a newly developed head sculpt, specially-tailored future Wolverine battle suit with armor parts and Wolverine’s signature metal claws.”

Hot Toys’ Rocket and Groot set is really cool, really expensive

rocket-groot1

Start saving your money now, collectors. Hot Toys has unveiled its Rocket Raccoon and Groot action-figure set for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s undeniably awesome (and I say that as someone who hasn’t collected action figures since childhood), but it’s also $360. I should point out, however, that you can set up a payment plan, which seems absolutely crazy for a toy, but what do I know.

The “movie-accurate” figures come with a weapon (for Rocket), an interchangeable angry expression face (for Groot) and interchangeable hands (for both). See more details and photos on the Sideshow Collectibles website. You can preorder now for shipping in March. Did I mention it’s $360?

Stop-motion Dark Knightfall pits Batman against Joker with Hot Toys

While the story is confusing, you’re unlikely to see a better fan-made stop-motion film than this trailer for Batman: Dark Knightfall, created by Derek Kwok and Henri Wong using those incredibly (and creepily) life-like Hot Toys figures. The filmmakers’ attention to detail is impressive, from steam and lighting to flying debris and fluttering fabric, giving the short a realistic quality. Well, at least until The Joker arrives, and the action takes an inexplicably bizarre turn (also not easily explained: why Gordon just lies on the ground). A full version is promised soon, so maybe we’ll get all the answers then.
