If you’re a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and are itching to get something that’s genuinely good for the price of admission, Hong Kong based toy manufacturing company Hot Toys has a lot in store for the coming year and beyond, as they have previewed some brand new gems for collectors to feast their eyes on and prepare pre-order forms for!
Posted in their very own Facebook page, pictures of the recent Toy Soul 2014 event in Hong Kong have showcased Hot Toys’ upcoming figures and collectibles based on Avengers: Age of Ultron, Guardians of the Galaxy, and even Star Wars. Prototypes of figures based on those lines were put on display for those attending the event to see, and although they were prototypes, they looked ready enough to give collectors a taste of what they could actually pre-order and own come 2015 when these action figures hit retailers and stands around the world.
The biggest highlight that was talked about in the event floor was the life-sized and 3 meters tall “Hulkbuster” Iron Man armor that Tony Stark develops to counter his friend/ fellow Avenger Bruce Banner, aka The Incredible Hulk. All lighted up and looking magnificent, it’s a life-like piece of collector supremacy that will definitely get people serious to add this to their collection asking Hot Toys on specifics if it’s available for orders in the future.
However, those who are still game for the actual Hot Toys figures can actually look forward to the 1/6 scale Hulkbuster release, which looks just as big and intimidating as its life-like counterpart, along with the LEDs and points of articulation to boot.
Also on hand were samples of the “Big Three” Avengers themselves – Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America, as they appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Iron Man in particular is seen with his Mark XLIII armor, complete with base and accessories, while Thor and Cap are dressed in their updated garbs as well.
Also on hand were the other three members of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes – Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye – updated in their Avengers: Age of Ultron looks as well.
Finally, a prototype of the big intergalactic Marvel baddie Thanos was also shown. Sculpted as he appeared in this year’s Guardians of the Galaxy and sitting in his floating rock throne, this 1/6 scale collectible likeness of the Mad Titan will definitely be in the “must get list” for those who want every character associated with the intergalactic Marvel Movie hit… Or just to complete their Marvel Cinematic Universe collection entirely!
