There has been an awakening, Star Wars fans—one that threatens the structural integrity of your wallet far more than it does the galaxy far, far away. That’s right: it’s Force Friday II, meaning that from 12:01 am tonight, September 1, the very first toys from The Last Jedi are going on sale. Get a look at everything…
Hot Toys have a couple of new Star Wars toys coming, one for Darth Vader, the other for his shift supervisor Grand Moff Tarkin.
As we’ve seen before, artist Sam Kwok takes figures and customizes them. The result is very, very good.
Just think of all the fingerprint smudges that will soon make this very fancy soldier suddenly look a lot less fancy.
Virtual Toys, aka VTS, does not have the license to be making toys based on Mad Max, but their “Wasteland Ranger” figure sure looks like Tom Hardy. They’ve also made bootleg toys based on everything from The Division (“Darkzone Agent”) to Dredd (“Epoch Cop”).
Though it seems as if Hot Toys is straying a bit from their normally excellent attention to detail and articulation with the Captain America: Civil War Ant-Man figure, they’re really stepped in up in terms of accessories.
Figure collectors, hold onto your wallets!
I mean, just look at them. Sure, one’s a heavily armored angry dude and the other is a space alien with glowing red eyes that are about to shoot out hot laser beams of death. But still, babies!
Deadpool is a lot of things, but the one thing he’s absolutely known for is his almost-ceaseless silliness as he slices his way through his foes and the fourth wall in equal measure. So it makes sense that when Hot Toys turn the character into a figure for his new movie, it has some pretty good ways to highlight that…
Hot Toys, whose work on comic book movies has been nothing short of inspiring, also have the license to make figures based on the characters in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. They’re so good.
We got a brief glimpse at Hot Toys figures for Batman v Superman yesterday, but now the company has released a full look at the Dark Knight and Man of Steel, and—nope. Can’t do it any more. Have to say it. LOOK AT THE GODDAMN SIZE OF BATMAN’S NECK, HOLY COW.
While the world is raving about the new Captain America: Civil War trailer, on my shelf, it’s still The Age of Ultron.
Hot Toys makes some of the most realistic collectible figures you can buy. If you’ve ever wondered about its process—or even how to get a job there—watch this video.
Stop, toy companies. Stop this madness before somebody gets hurt.
Nice and easy there, toy collector. Hand over your wallet and nobody gets blown away—this amazing Leia wouldn’t give two hoots that your blaster was set to stun!
Artist Sam Kwok takes various Iron Man figures, repaints them, sculpts on elements, and makes some truly spectacular custom pieces.
Tony Stark goes through Iron Man suits like they’re going out of fashion. It seems like Hot Toys have a very similar approach, because they’ve announced another two Iron Man related figures that they would really like you to add to your Iron Legion.
Star Wars has a long history of merchandising everything, right down to the characters you see in the movies for mere moments. Who doesn't remember heroes like Toryn Farr, Willrow Hood or Yak Face (apologies, Saelt-Marae)? Now even characters seen for literal seconds are getting the Hot Toys treatment.
