Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

^I bought all of those. They're pretty stellar. I really wish Catwoman had her whip, though.

For once, here's a Hot Toys preview that doesn't have me leaping with excitement:

DANG, BRO. Kind of agree with you there. Not one of their best offerings.

I'm investing in Hot Toys, though! I should have gone ahead and said "Hell, Yeah" after seeing your Bruce Lee figures, but I'm an intensely stubborn bastard!

That Spidey is pretty accurate, though, even down to the costume seams. And Andrew Garfield is kind of skinny.

That looks absolutely amazing (no pun intended). If I had enough cash to justify getting one I would

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Oh, don't get me wrong. That Spider-Man is still sure to be better than 99.99% of collectibles out there. I think it's just my general lack of enthusiasm for the suit redesign, plus my lack of enthusiasm for the movie adding up. Something looks off about the material compared to the images I've seen from the film. It's only a preview, though. The main announcement may look better to me. Unless the movie manages to somehow be absolutely stellar, though, I probably won't be getting it.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Man, if Hot Toys did a line of nuTrek collectible figures I'd be all over them. Could you imagine how utterly awesome and mind-blowing a HT Nero, Kirk and Spock would be? How they'd nail Simon Pegg's facial expression? How realistically kinky and curly nuChekov's hair would look?

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

It would be amazing, and would bankrupt me even further.

However, Hot Toys is known for not finishing lines. Avengers is the first time ever that they have made a commitment to making every major character. For example, their Watchmen line had Silk Specter and the Comedian, and that was it. Not even a Rorschach. If they made a Trek line, and didn't treat it like Avengers, we would get Kirk and Spock, and if we were lucky maybe McCoy or Scotty. That would be about it.

Heh, and welcome to the wonderful world of Hot Toys, cooleddie. If you plan on getting any of their past stuff, though, be prepared to pay quite the premium. Hot Toys stuff appreciates fast. Have you decided what your first will be?

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Oh, it'll be a Star Wars one. Luke perhaps? I'm still a little undecided. Any recommendations?

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Well, if you want Star Wars, then Luke is currently your only option. It's so far the only figure that they've shown. Though if you're interested in Hot Toys, then Sideshow's Star Wars stuff may also be up your alley. Their aliens and armored characters are on par with Hot Toys stuff. Their human characters maybe not so much, but you can't go wrong with the rest. Hot Toys is actually piggybacking off of Sideshow's Star Wars license. A lot of collectors are speculating that Sideshow will now be doing just the aliens, troopers, droids, etc. and Hot Toys will handle the humans. This seems possible considering it's been a very long time since Sideshow did a human.

Here's Hot Toys Luke

Sideshow's Boba Fett is due out next month

I haven't bought it, but their IG-88 is incredibly impressive

Or here's just a list of everything they have currently in stock or up for preorder.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

There's a Mythos Boba Fett that's currently being teased on the collecting sites, but I don't think that it's connected to Hot Toys in any way. I don't know...is the brand new Mythos line a Hot Toys thing? I'm still learning the ropes about the more expensive collectibles.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Hot Toys should do a Star Wars triad collection. Luke, Han, and Leia. Then in a second wave release Vader.

No that's Sideshow. Hot Toys is partners with Sideshow, though, and is borrowing their Star Wars License. Sideshow makes 1/6 scale figures too, but they also make statues and dioramas. The Mythos line is a statue line, and will run you even more than a Hot Toys figure.

So far only Darth Maul is available for preorder from the Mythos line.

Ahhhhh, thanks. I'd been confused. I couldn't make heads nor tails of some of these.

Have you seen the teaser video for the Mythos Boba? It'll be, I think, the third entry in the Mythos line unless my count is way off. I remember the Mythos Darth Maul and there's at least one other.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I just ordered the Diamond Select Hawkeye. No way I can afford the Hot Toys version, but the smaller one is nice.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Not sure if this has been brought up before...but does anyone what the status is on the Art Aslyum/Diamond Select Enterprise-E? Or any of their ships? The pre-order date continually gets pushed back every few months. I've started to lose hope of it ever coming out.
