Universal Options "The Wicked + The Divine" for TV Adaptation
Even as fans gear up for the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (203 days and counting!), Hot Toys takes us back to the film that started it all with its Star Wars: A New Hope Luke Skywalker collectible figure.
Standing about 11 inches tall, the 1/6th-scale figure is, of course, based on Mark Hamill’s likeness in Episode IV. Featuring more than 30 points of articulation, the collectible comes with an interchangeable hair sculpt (for wearing the hat), eight interchangeable palms, Luke’s signature clothing from that first film, an LED-lighted blue lightsaber, a long rifle, a hat with goggles, a poncho, a pair of binoculars, a training helmet, a training remote, a droid caller and a display stand.
As promised, Hot Toys has unveiled a new wave of adorable Avengers: Age of Ultron Cosbaby figures that not only includes the Vision but also — brace yourselves! — Black Widow.
They’re joined by 3.75-inch bobblehead versions of Ultron Prime, Ultron Mark I, Iron Man Mark XLV, War Machine II and, in the collectible set of seven, Tony Stark, holding a teeny-tiny helmet.
Hot Toys has at last debuted the Avenger: Age of Ultron collectible figure so many have been waiting for: The Vision.
Teased last month, the 1/6th-scale “movie accurate” figure features 30 points of articulation, a newly developed head sculpt with detailed texture and Mind Stone, a tailored costume and cape, four pairs of interchangeable hands, a display stand and — spoiler alert? — Thor’s hammer.
Hot Toys has revealed its second series of Avengers: Age of Ultron Artist Mix figures, designed by Touma, which includes The Vision and Iron Man Mark XLV.
The 13-centimeter-tall bobbleheads are joined by Thor, Iron Legion and the Incredible Hulk (who towers over the others at 14.5 centimeters). The deluxe set includes an exclusive gray Rampaging Hulk.
Hot Toys takes collectors back to 1992, and the cinematic world of Tim Burton, with the unveiling of its 1/6th-scale Batman and Bruce Wayne collectible figures from Batman Returns.
These are actually two releases, one the Batman figure and the other the Batman and Bruce Wayne set. The former boasts three interchangeable lower faces that capture Michael Keaton’s expressions, nine interchangeable palms, a batarang, grapple gun, two napalm packets, a line launcher, a Batmobile remote control, a signal jammer, and an LED light-up figure stand.
If you’re not satisfied with just one version of the homicidal robot from Avengers: Age of Ultron in your collection, you’re in luck, because Hot Toys has officially unveiled its 1/6th-scale Ultron Mark I.
As both the name and the images suggest, this is the early form of the artificial intelligence glimpsed in the trailers for the Marvel Studios sequel, one cobbled together from pieces of Iron Man and Iron Legion armor, and who knows what else. Reflecting that, the 32.5-centimeter figure is asymmetrical and missing a left hand, with exposed cables and other mechanical details.
In the buildup to Avengers: Age of Ultron, Hot Toys has been wowing fans by revealing one movie-accurate collectible figure after another, from Captain America and Ultron Prime to the Incredible Hulk and War Machine. However, the company has been holding back one at least one character, whose introduction in the Marvel Studios sequel is eagerly anticipated: The Vision, as played by Paul Bettany.
This morning, however, Hot Toys unveiled a tantalizing teaser:
After teasing the figure in photos last week from its “Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron Exhibition” in Hong Kong, Hot Toys has unveiled promo photos and details of its 1/6th-scale War Machine Mark II.
Based on the likeness of actor Don Cheadle, the 31-centimeter collectible figure features diecast material, interchangeable heads (the helmeted version with LED light-up function), more than 30 points of articulation, LED-lighted arc reactor, seven interchangeable palms, a rotatable machine gun and a stand.
The Hot Toys exclusive is expected to ship in the second or third quarter of this year. Avengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1.
Hot Toys has debuted a video of “Ultron Rises,” a holographic showcase on display in Hong Kong as part of its “Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron Exhibition.”
As the title suggests, the specially designed visual traces the path of the film’s antagonist, from dormant peacekeeping program to homicidal robot, all in the course of 55 seconds.
Sure, we already spotlighted some of the life-size statues from Hot Toys’ “Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron Exhibition,” but on the eve of the tour’s first stop in Hong Kong, the company has revealed a peek at the incredible Hulkbuster vs. Hulk.
Measuring about 13 feet tall, the display — it’s outside Hysan Place in Causeway Bay — features not only the aforementioned life-size statues, but also the expected debris, and, yes, even smoke effects.
If your complaint with Hot Toys’ Avengers: Age of Ultron collectible figures is that they’re just not big enough, allow us to point you to the 1/4th-scale Iron Man Mark XLIII. That’s 1/4th scale, rather than the usual 1/6th, which means the Armored Avenger stands 20 inches tall.
The prototype was showcased in December at Toy Soul 2014, but now the company’s first 1/4th-scale figure has been officially revealed, featuring a new Tony Stark head sculpt, interchangeable helmeted head, and LED light-up functions on the eyes, arc reactor and repulsors. There are also three pairs of interchangeable palms, and a damaged Ultron Sentry diorama base with detachable head and arm.
If you think Hot Toys’ 1/6th-scale figures are mind-bogglingly — maybe even unnervingly — realistic, you should see the life-size versions.
As part of its “Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron Exhibition,” which tours Asia from April through July, the company is producing full-size statues “that will embody the meticulously crafted details” fans are accustomed to seeing in the collectible figures. Those include replicas of Captain America and Thor that could easily be mistaken for Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth, and entire teams of nearly 10-feet-tall Hulkbusters and 8-feet-tall Ultron Primes.
Hot Toys shows no signs of letting up with its line of Marvel collectible figures, which continues with this exclusive 1/6th-scale Iron Man Mark VII in Stealth Mode.
Just how exclusive is it? It’s a movie promo edition that will be available for preorder during stops on “Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron Exhibition,” which will tour Asia from April through July.
On the heels of Black Widow, Hot Toys has unveiled its Avengers: Age of Ultron 1/6th-scale Hawkeye collectible figure.
Based on actor Jeremy Renner’s likeness — would you expect anything less? — the 30-centimeter figures boasts a newly developed head sculpt, new costume, improved articulation and newly designed bow and arrows.
Hot Toys has at long last unveiled its 1/6th-scale Avengers: Age of Ultron Black Widow collectible figure.
Based, of course, on Scarlett Johansson’s likeness, the movie-accurate figure stands about 28 centimeters tall, and boasts 28 points of articulation, four pairs of interchangeable hands (including one for holding pistols and another for batons), two blasters, two batons, one pistol and one dagger.
