Hot Toys’ Darth Vader Sixth Scale Figure Goes up For Pre-Order

Posted by Ben Huber on Jan 5, 2015 in Hobbies and Collections, Star Wars


If you’re looking for an imposing evil figure to guard your shelf space or desk, look no further! Hot Toys has put up pre-orders for their latest Star Wars figure, the dark lord himself, Darth Vader. It’s based off of the costume used in A New Hope down to the last detail, also features a voice box with breathing sound effects, and tops it all off with LEDs that light up on his belt and lightsaber. Imagine seeing that in the dark! It’ll also come with multiple hands, a stand, and an Interrogator Droid. Vader will run you $299.99, and will release in September later this year. He’s over 13 inches tall! Check out more details and the pre-order page here.

Woah: 1/4 Scale Hot Toys Boba Fett On The Way

Posted by Ben Huber on Dec 26, 2014 in Hobbies and Collections, Star Wars


Well, I think it was inevitable that Hot Toys would make a Boba Fett figure, but 1/4 scale? Now that’s impressive… Most impressive. He’ll feature tons of accessories (as usual) along with 30 points of articulation, four sets of hands, a cloth cape, two rifles, and an assortment of knives and blades. Plus, as usual with Hot Toys, at 18 inches tall he’ll be incredibly detailed — you can probably tell from the images. He’ll be out late 2015 or early 2016 (figures like this often get delayed). As for cost? Nothing is confirmed yet, but he’ll probably be over $300, so start saving your pennies now. Check out more images below! Read more…

Hot Toys Has Made The Best Chewbacca Figure… Ever?

Posted by Ben Huber on Sep 26, 2014 in Hobbies and Collections, Star Wars


Hot Toys continues to knock it out of the park with every figure they make, but this new Chewbacca figure might just take the cake. He has brown fabric hair across his entire body, and it looks just like the real thing. I’m honestly surprised it looks this good, because typically, hair on figures is hard to do right. A whole figure of hair? A nightmare! But somehow they pulled it off, and Chewie looks great standing next to Han. As usual, he comes with a bunch of accessories, such as his bowcaster and bandoleer, as well as a figure stand. Check out some more images below, then see the full gallery here! Read more…

Hot Toys Rocket Raccoon and Groot Now Up For Pre-Order

Posted by Ben Huber on Jul 21, 2014 in Hobbies and Collections

Hot Toys - Guardians of the Galaxy - Rocket & Groot Collectible Set_PR1-noscale

Hot Toys is at it again with more amazingly detailed figures, and Guardians of the Galaxy are the ones getting the special treatment. Rocket Raccoon and Groot are the two figures now up for pre-order, and they look pretty cool. Groot runs $200, and Rocket is $160. That seems a little odd, given how small Rocket is. If you’re going to get both, though, there is a $360 duo pack, which includes bonus items such as an angry hed for Groot and alternate hands. Pre-order Groot here, Rocket here, and the duo here. They’re planned to ship in March next year. More images below! Read more…

Hot Toys’ Dark Knight Armory is Huge

Posted by Ben Huber on Dec 29, 2013 in Hobbies and Collections


Please, Hot Toys, please. What dark magic do you use to shrink actors’ heads down to figure scale? It’s insane. Also, making a Dark Knight armory replica with Alfred to boot? You’re just killing my wallet here. Both Bruce and Alfred look fantastic, and the cabinet containing all of Batman’s weaponry looks like a great way to store all those extra figure pieces, right? At the very least, if you’re already deep in the Hot Toys pit, this armory is basically the last thing to complete the collection. No word yet on a release date or price, but I bet it’ll be expensive. Check out some more images below. Read more…

Loki Figure By Hot Toys Sure to Make Women Swoon, Men Desire His Helmet

Posted by Ben Huber on May 20, 2012 in Hobbies and Collections


You gotta admit, that helmet is pretty nifty – and given Loki’s huge female fanbase, I’m going to guess that a lot of them will be looking at picking this amazing figure: Hot Toys has returned to their Avengers line with another super-detailed model, this time of Loki. Once again, the face is the star here, with an incredible attention to detail. The eyes, though, those piercing eyes! They follow me around the room, it’s slightly unnerving. Still, if you’re a Loki fan or know one, you can pre-order him now for $219.99 for when he releases in December later this year. Read more…

Symbiote Spider-Man From Hot Toys Will Make Your Jaw Drop

Posted by Ben Huber on Dec 25, 2011 in Comic Books, Hobbies and Collections

Spider-Man Hot Toys

If you’re looking for the ultimate gift for the Spider-Man fan in your life, this may just be the ticket. Sadly, it doesn’t come out till the second quarter of 2012, but this Black Suit version of Spider-Man from Spider-Man 3 is one of the best Spideys I’ve seen. The joints are all hidden under the fabric of the suit, which looks fantastic. Not only that, the sculpted head of Tobey Maguire is up to the usual Hot Toys standard of ‘looking almost as real as the person’s actual face.’ Read more…

Hot Toys Bespin Luke Skywalker is Kind of Terrifying

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Nov 24, 2011 in Hobbies and Collections, Star Wars

Hot Toys Luke Skywalker DX Series Bespin 1

I’m not sure why I would want a Luke Skywalker with a scarred up face and missing hand, but if I did,  Hot Toys would have me covered. Recently they unveiled the latest addition to their DX series of collectible figures, the 1/6th scale Luke Skywalk in Bespin outfit two-pack. Like all Hot Toys products, it’s sure to cost you a hand, or a leg (see what I did there,) but at least you’ll be able to faithfully recreate the greatest moment of Empire Strikes Back, and no, I don’t mean the scene where Han gets dropped into a vat of Carbonite after completely blowing Leia off.

Hot Toys’ Bruce Wayne; Bat-voice Not Included

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Aug 17, 2011 in Comic Books, Hobbies and Collections

Hot Toys Bruce Wayne

Every time I stare at one of these Hot Toys figures, I get chills. Everything from the photo realistic faces to the detailed accessories they include with each figure shouts quality. Of course, they also happen to be among the most expensive toys on the market. Hot Toys offered up this special edition Bruce Wayne in Batsuit 12 inch collectible as a toy fair exclusive earlier this year, but will also be making it available via Sideshow Collectibles this October. The figure features the visage of Christian Bale and comes modeled after his appearance in Nolan’s Batman Begins, however the head comes with an interchangeable cowl along with several different mouths to swap out. There’s also a ton of accessories included such as bombs, boots, gauntlets, interchangeable hands, and batarangs among others. Sideshow is asking $225 for pre-orders, and the supply is limited so its only one per customer. Too expensive? Bruce Wayne could afford it.

San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive Iron Man Mark IV

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jun 15, 2011 in Comic Books, Hobbies and Collections

Hot Toys Iron Man Mark IV Secret Project Figure 1

With San Diego Comic-Con just over a month away, Sideshow Collectibles has been gearing up with a short list of exclusive pre-orders for attendees and non-attendees alike. The other day, they unveiled their latest addition to the list, Hot Toys’ Iron Man Mark IV “Secret Project” collectible figure. This 1:6th scale figure stands at 12 inches tall and comes with all the bells and whistles we’ve come to expect from Hot Toys — battery powered LED lights, interchangeable parts, articulated joints and armor flaps, you name it. If you’re attending and want to get your hands on one, you’ll need to sign up for the Sideshow Collectibles newsletter, then pre-order on June 16th between the hours of 10 AM to 12 PM PST. If you’re not attending Comic-Con but still want one, you’ll have to wait until the 17th. It’ll retail for just $209, and any figures left over will be sold to the general public, but that’s probably not going to happen. For more  photos, visit the Sideshow Collectibles production blog. For info on how to pre-order, head over to their con exclusives sub-site.

Hot Toys’ Jack Sparrow Looks as Savvy as Ever

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Apr 12, 2011 in Cinema, Hobbies and Collections

Hot Toys Jack Sparrow

As some of you may be aware, Hot Toys is known for their stunningly detailed collectibles. True to form, their upcoming 1/6th scale Pirates of the Caribbean Jack Sparrow is no exception. The figure is the latest addition to the Movie Masterpiece Deluxe line — each one bearing a striking resemblance to the actors that portray the characters they’re based on. As you can see here, they’ve done an amazing job of capturing Johnny Depp’s visage.

Hot Toys Teaches Us the Art of Fighting Without Fighting

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Mar 15, 2011 in Hobbies and Collections

Bruce Lee Hot Toys casual figure 1

As far as toy makers go, Hots Toys has a reputation of being among the best. The company may charge us an arm and a leg, but their attention to detail is second to none. Each figure they produce is painstaking crafted with photorealism in mind, making them frighteningly accurate. One could easily find themselves confusing a photo of a toy for the real thing — their 2009 The Dark Knight Joker comes to mind. They recently unveiled two new designs for their Bruce Lee line, and both are absolutely stunning. One features Lee in casual attire, the other in a suit. While neither figure are available for preorder quite yet — they’re scheduled for Fall — the Enter the Dragon version will available for preorder on April 1st.

Hot Toys Land Some Hot Licenses For 2010

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jul 22, 2010 in Cinema, Hobbies and Collections

The Expendables Poster

Hot Toys, perhaps one of my favorite Hollywood toy manufacturers next to Sideshow Collectibles, has managed to secure some of the hottest licenses this summer. Some of those titles include Silvester Stallone’s upcoming film The Expendables, Spider-Man 3, Tron Legacy and Resident Evil: Afterlife — you know that strange looking 3D Resident Evil film that they’re working on. I really wish they already had some of these figures to show off, but one look at their current offerings, and you can pretty much know what to expect in terms of quality. In fact, I’ve had some people mistake some of the high resolution photos of their Joker figure for Heath Ledger himself. Not too bad if you ask me. The only draw back is that these figures can be a bit pricey. We’re talking in the upwards of $150 or more — on the 0ther hand, the quality honestly justifies the price. Check out their official website for more of their current products and keep an eye out for these new lines in the months ahead. Read more…
