Although most Marvel fans are looking ahead to Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange, Hot Toys isn’t finished with Avengers: Age of Ultron just yet. This morning the high-end collectibles company unveiled its new 1/6th-scale Thor figure, based on the likeness of actor Chris Hemsworth in the blockbuster sequel.

Standing about 32 centimeters tall, the action figure boasts 30 points of articulation, a new head sculpt (which, judging from early reaction on Facebook, isn’t exactly a crowd-pleaser), four pairs of interchangeable palms, an LED light-up Mjolnir and a metal Mjolnir with lightning effect accessory, and a display 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.

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.
