After countless Iron-man figures, hit-or-miss Avengers characters, you think you finally have your collection complete.

But the Avengers franchise is too big a cash cow for HT to let up… Case in point, here’s the latest of the Avengers characters to get immortalized as a collectible 1/6th figure – Agent Phil Coulson.




The figure looks great, but I’m still undecided whether to order one or not.

The quality of the head sculpts that reeled me into the world of mini-me’s is slipping, as it appears to be on Hot Toys’ latest previews.

You might remember this ugly piece from the Captain America prototype:


You can forgive the gnarly face that’s supposed to be the likeness of Chris Evans because the head sculpt with the helmet on is actually quite nice. But now comes this:



That face looks weird, and only vaguely resembles that of Chris Hemsworth’s.

Back when I preordered Hawkeye, I was thinking of whether to collect the Avengers set, as I knew Hot Toys will be making new versions of each hero. But now that I’ve seen these previews, HT just made my decision easier – that is, I’ll be skipping this Thor for sure! Maybe even the Cap, too.

Told ya Thor’s not too far along! After Cap, the next figurine for the new Avengers movie has been unveiled.

With great expectation, the hottest movie in town – The Avengers is coming next week! Many thanks for the likes of the Captain America collectible that we announced yesterday!
Following Captain America is another key character – Thor! The newly developed Thor collectible with muscular body and accurate proportion will be coming very soon!
Fans, please await our surprise!

Avengers Thor

Hope they don’t mess up the head like they did with the good Captain.

We still have Iron Man, the Hulk, and the two ladies of the group – Black Widow and Maria Hill, and the ensemble is complete!!

Fresh at the heels of this guy,


now comes this guy:


Hot Toys is proud to present the collectible figure of the great superhero from the Marvel Studios – the 1/6th scale Captain America Limited Edition Collectible Figurine from the upcoming blockbuster The Avengers movie. The movie-accurate collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Chris Evans as Captain America in his hero costume in the movie, highlighting the newly developed head sculpt, highly detailed costume and weapons.

The helmeted head figure looks nice, but the one without the protective gear needs  a LOT of work, in my opinion.


Looks like I’m gonna have to say bye-bye to my hard-earned savings, again! I’m betting Thor and Captain America won’t be too far along now.

This interactive iOS app follows the design logs of the great Tony Stark from his captive days for Mark I all the way through Mark VI, and gives us a glimpse of what’s to come for Mark VII on the upcoming superhero movie The Avengers. The app’s free, so go ahead and try it out. It’s fun, I promise!

Going back to circles, eh, Mr. Stark?!

On July 22nd, expect the movie theaters to get jam-packed as this year’s most highly anticipated movie Captain America: The First Avenger opens. Reservations aside, I’m excited to see the movie after seeing the Super Bowl XLV TV Spot.

Captain America: The First Avenger

With Chris Evans playing the titular role, I would assume there’ll be plenty of skepticism to go around. Evans playing two Marvel Superheroes doesn’t exactly put people’s minds at ease. His first stint in the Marvel Universe is the Human Torch from the Fantastic Four movies.

Along with Evans, the film stars Hugo Weaving, Tommy Lee Jones, Neal McDonough, Sebastian Stan, Dominic Cooper, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones. Direction is handled by Joe Johnston.

If the trailer isn’t enough, have your fill with these movie stills and posters.


Hot Toys already announced they acquired the license to create the 1:6 version. I just seriously hope HT doesn’t mess up the figure, ‘cause I can’t wait to have this beside my new Iron Man 2 Mark IV figure.
