2010 Is Looking Good

Collecting is a huge hobby, with many of us in the community. Some have been doing this for quite some time now...others are just getting started. Most of the figures we purchase are very limited in quantity. With the release of 2008's "The Dark Knight", Hong Kong toy maker "Hot Toys" TDK figure line were hot items in the high-end collector market making a huge dry spell for collectors leaving many to think...whats going to happen in the future for toy collecting? Well Hot Toys never seems to disappoint us with their amazing toys. We told you guys in our last post about the upcoming 1:6 Scale Terminator 2 T-800 figure, but that isnt all Hot Toys has in store for us.


At the beginnng of December Hot Toys announced via their website that they were releasing a new addition to their Iron Man line. Its a new 1:6 Scale Tony Stark featuring his mech test gear in the movie. The figure features a new head sculpt with realized likeness to Robert Downey Jr. in the film, and in our opinion is a huge step up from the head sculpt on the Mark III version.
Other features include brand new ABS material TrueType body with newly designed chest, forearms and forelegs, 34 points of articulations, two pairs of interchangeable hand palms, LED-lighted heart device, hand gauntlet and boots, articulated mechanical robot with 360° rotated base and fire extinguisher as accident detector, a 6” X 6” black-color square-shape figure stage, and a cardboard backdrop imitating Tony Stark workshop setting where he practiced flight in the film. It will definitely be quite an amazing figure.

Another upcoming figure is the 1:6 Scale King Leonidas from the movie 300. This figure is just too much for words. Personally I wasnt to fond of the movie, but even I would spend the money on this guy. The life likeness is simply stunning, and the sculpter paid amazing attention to detail. The figure features a Hot Toys newly sculpted and developed muscled body with over 26 points of articulation, dressed with a real fabric cape with harness, faux-leather belt, vambraces and greaves, helmet features a real-like horsehair crest, realistic wolf’s tooth necklace, sword and faux-leather scabbard, battle damaged Spartan shield features the faux- leather hand hold and removable broken arrows, spear, figure stand with 300 movie logo and King Leonidas nameplate, and head sculpt with authentic Gerard Butler likeness as King Leonidas. Hot Toys recently announced on their website that they would be including an alternate headsulpt with a different expression.

Hot Toys 1:6 Terminator 2 T-800

Hot Toys recently announced their plans for their 2010 line. Thanks to our friend Alex, we have an exclusive new look at another amazing addition to their Movie Masterpiece collection, the 1:6 scale Terminator 2 T-800.

This figure is amazing! Hot Toys just never ceases to amaze us with their life-like detail and amazing craftsmenship, and this figure is no exception. The figure features a headsculpt with authentic likeness to Arnold Swarchenegger as the T-800 from the 1991 film "Terminator 2: Judgement Day." The figure will include 2 spare sets of hands, sawed-off Winchester 1887 shotgun hidden inside a box full of roses, a pistol, his classic sunglasses, and the much anticipated accessory...a spare forarm exposing his t-800 endoskeleton. This is one of the most anticipated figures for 2010 right now, and if this is any hint on the figures due to release in the upcoming year, its going to be a good one!

Happy collecting people!

Tis The Toy Season

With the biggest holiday right around the corner, what have you asked from Old Saint Nick to put under the tree? Well we’re going to give you a little list of what we think the best presents will be for any toy lover’s Christmas.
Keep in mind, no high-end collectible comes cheap, and if you’re not a Trump maybe the holidays are the perfect chance for you to expand your collection without reducing your wallet bulge. Here are a couple pieces to get you in the Christmas gift mood.
With the recent December release of Terminator Salvation on DVD and BluRay, what better gift to add than Hot Toys’ 1:6 figures modeled after the motion picture itself? There’s John Connor, Marcus Wright, a whole line of the Terminator robots, and a definite deal, the T-700 Terminator Factory Diorama.
















Hot Toys has recently released their much anticipated DX series, and in perfect time. The series feature an all new Joker figure with a change of costume of his police outfit, and Batman in his Dark Knight suit, both with Hot Toys signature "PERS", or "parallel eye rolling system". Both have a December release date, and make great additions to your collecting. To most that have not been able to get their hands on Hot Toys Tumbler or Batpod, this season might be your best shot.
