I still hate the movie, though, and will probably boycott the sequel.

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.

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,

Avengers-Hawkeye

now comes this guy:

Avengers-CaptainAmerica

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.

After more than a year since Hot Toys announced them, I finally have my hands on two Christopher Reeve Superman one-sixth figures. They’re awesome!

Now all I need is an airtight glass display. It would be a shame if they get damaged by dust and the elements while on display. Any suggestions?

The Avengers characters are on a roll, what with Thor’s success in the global box-office. The leader of the pack, the Captain himself, will be featured in his own movie set to be released this July. Thor’s success is a tough act to follow, and the pressure is on for Chris Evans’ portrayal of the character. Add to the fact that the Avengers movie is scheduled for 2012, a lot is depending on this movie’s success. After all, Captain America is the leader, so there’s that! The good news is the movie looks promising enough, but it’s still yet to be seen how it performs in a few weeks.

Hot Toys is on their feet with their one-sixth version. Today we got a glimpse of the collectible figure via their FB post. Comments prove it’s going to be one of their popular figures.

Capt. America

Personally, I can’t wait to place my order for this one. It’ll go nicely with Iron Man 2 (Mark IV and VI) and Thor, though I’m still waiting for the God of Thunder to arrive.

There goes my savings, again!

Another Iron Man collectible figure, and HT’s making it exclusive to Toy Fairs in select countries. HT’s definitely milking the IM line. But the only complaint on this one is it ought to be available to other countries, too!

Here’s HT’s blurb, images follow:

Summer is coming and so do Toy Fairs!
