Two Captain America Figures are Better than One

Hot Toys T-800: The Kotaku Review

Dead Or Alive, These Robocop Figures Are Coming With Me

Hot Toys have, I'm going to assume, gone back in time to 1987, captured Peter Weller, brought him back to 2014, shrunk him down and put him in a box. That's the only explanation I can think of as to why this new toy looks so damn perfect. » 10/14/14 9:30pm 10/14/14 9:30pm

Han & Chewie Figures Look Real Enough To Pull The Ears Off A Gundark

Look at Chewie long enough and you start imagining him flicking his arms around in slow-mo, like the universe's coolest shampoo commercial.

A Face Only A Hardcore Avengers Movie Fan Could Love

When I was young, I would have my parents buy me multiple copies of trooper-style action figures in order to amass a cartoon-accurate army. As an adult collector, I think I'll just stick with the one $239 Chitauri Foot Soldier from Hot Toys. » 8/16/14 3:30pm 8/16/14 3:30pm

The Only Guardians Of The Galaxy Action Figures I Need

Here it is. It doesn't matter how good or bad Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy does at the box office early next month. As long as I get my Hot Toys 1/6th scale figures of Rocket Raccoon and Groot, it's a win in my book. » 7/19/14 2:00pm 7/19/14 2:00pm

This Avengers Bruce Banner Figure Isn't Always Angry

It's been a while since I've reviewed any of the awesome Movie Masterpiece figures from Hong Kong collectible toy company Hot Toys, mainly because it's been a while since I've actually gotten one. Not for lack of want, mind you, but the cost of the individual figures puts quite a dent in my wallet. » 4/21/14 7:00am 4/21/14 7:00am

Captain America Action Figure Is Basically A Shrunken Chris Evans

The Best Way to End My Year is With a Bloody Tony Stark

While 2013 has been a pretty awesome year for movies and video games, on a personal level, it's been pretty crappy. What better way to send if off than with the latest beat up bundle of awesome from Hot Toys. » 12/31/13 6:00am 12/31/13 6:00am

Hot Toys' Ada Wong Is Lovely, But Can She Pull Off That Dress?

After my first whirlwind love affair with a Hot Toys Iron Man figure, I decided to go outside of my comfort zone for my second figure review. Someone a lot more vulnerable, but ten times as dangerous. Someone like Resident Evil's Ada Wong. » 12/23/13 10:00pm 12/23/13 10:00pm

An Iron Man Figure Worth Its Weight In Gold

For ages, Kotaku's Luke Plunkett has taunted me with pictures of Hot Toys figures, the most spectacular sixth-scale, highly-articulated, true-to-life (where applicable) toys available. Now I've gotten my hands on one — the Iron Man Mark XXI Midas Armor sold by Sideshow Collectibles, and I may have been better off… » 11/29/13 10:00pm 11/29/13 10:00pm
