Hot Toys Figures That Will Leave You Awestruck
Hot Toys figures seem to be getting more and more realistic. It’s also pretty cool on what is happening on the accessories front. This includes interchangeable parts or accessories that the models wear or carry on them. Then there’s stuff like Tony Stark’s ARC reactor creation accessories set and Batman’s armory. It doesn’t get more awesome than that!
Hot Toys Figures: Black Widow ‘Winter Soldier’ Model
The Black Widow Winter Soldier model is fantastic and has blown away many collectors with it’s sheer awesomeness. Standing 28cm tall it has a detailed, fully realized likeness of actress Scarlett Johansson. The hair looks so real and has been implanted into the model’s head. It has 30 points of articulation so you can have her posing just about anyway you like. Thrown in with the deal are 9 pieces of interchangeable gloved palms, 2 pistols, 1 pair of bracelets, 1 phone and a figure base.
Hot Toys Figures: Loki ‘Thor: The Dark World’ Model
The Hot Toys Loki model look pretty badass. Another amazing likeness this time of Tom Hiddleston. What I’d like to focus on here though is the accessories. There are six pieces of interchangeable palms including one pair of partially clenched palms. One pair of relaxed palms. One right palm for holding a dagger and one left open palm.
It seems Loki will never escape the feeling of handcuffs. Not only does this model come with a pair of handcuffs that has chains but a pair of legcuffs and a neck collar that come with chains, too. The figure stand comes with a Loki nameplate and the movie logo.
Hot Toys The Company
Hot Toys was established in 2000. They are devoted to designing, developing and producing high quality and highly detailed collectibles with authentic likeness. They originally started out producing 1/6th scale military action figures but have expanded that to include collectible figures from popular movies, video games, comics as well as world renowned celebrities.
They have acquired the official merchandising rights to movies including Iron Man, The Avengers, Pirates of the Caribbean, Batman, the Terminator Series and Aliens & Predators.
Prices of Hot Toys Figures
I have included the prices of the models below at the time of my review. If you find the price deviates a lot from the price I mentioned it could be because it’s a limited edition and there are only a few left.
Some figures are a lot more expensive than others because of the accessories they come with ie. Batman Dark Knight Rises. It may also be due to the size. The Incredible Hulk stands at 42cm compared to Black Widow’s 28cm.
Keep in mind that different models of the same character are issued from time to time. A good case in point is Black Widow. The older versions of her (Avengers, Iron Man 2) are more expensive than the Captain America: Winter Soldier version.
The Hot Toy figures in this round up go from $US213 – $US439.
