Hot Toys 1/6th The Joker DX11 spotted at Toy Hunters!

Fan's have taken these pictures of the upcoming Hot Toys Joker DX11 figure in the Toy Hunters store window display. It's official people!



NECA - Resident Evil - VECTOR from Operation Raccoon City

Who is VECTOR?
Real name: Classified. Origin: Unknown. The mysterious, hooded member of Delta Team’s “Wolfpack,” Vector is an enigma wrapped in a puzzle wrapped in an invisibility cloak. Today, we’re excited to take a closer look at this latest 7″ action figure from the latest in the landmark Capcom gaming franchise, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.

"It is September 1998 and the action centres on the ill-fated Raccoon City and the horrific consequences of the deadly T-virus outbreak, developed at the Umbrella facility. With a cover up required, Umbrella orders an elite team into Raccoon City to destroy all evidence of the outbreak and eliminate any survivors. Meanwhile, the US Government has quarantined the city and dispatched its own team of elite soldiers to determine the source of the mysterious outbreak…"

So it’s a cover-up and a fight against the government for the U.S.S. Delta Team, AKA the “Wolfpack,” and the recon specialist Vector is one of its deadliest members. Whether he’s gathering information or cutting throats, he does it with stealth learned direct from Hunk, the leader of Delta Team and no slouch himself when it comes to offing zombies.

Our Vector figure was a big hit earlier this year when we debuted him at the NYC Toy Fair. He comes combat-ready with game-accurate weaponry — knife, rifle and pistol included — and a highly-detailed sculpt of the black hood and gas mask he wears in the game. Vector also has over 20 points of articulation, including:
-Ball Jointed Neck
-Ball Jointed Shoulders
-Insert Molded Ball Hinged Elbows
-Ball Jointed Wrists
-Ball Jointed Upper Torso
-Swivel Waist
-Ball Jointed Hips
-Double Knee Joints
-Boot Swivels
-Hinged Ankles
-Hinged Toes

Includes Rifle, Pistol and Knife.
Available early July!
The Ground Floor

It’s a fact: Resident Evil was into zombies before it was cool. By the time people actually started chowing down on each other’s faces, Operation Raccoon City was already released as one of nearly 20 titles in a brand that also includes movies, books, and the forthcoming Resident Evil 6, one of 2012′s most anticipated games!

Hot Toys - The Amazing Spider-Man - 1/6 Scaled Spiderman Figure

One of the most popular superheroes is back on big screen as a new chapter in the Spider-Man legacy. To celebrate the launch of The Amazing Spider-Man movie, Hot Toys is proud to present the 1/6th scale Spider-Man Limited Edition Collectible Figurine from this summer blockbuster. The movie-accurate Spider-Man collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man/ Peter Parker in the movie, highlighting the newly developed head sculpt, highly detailed costume and accessories.























NECA - Iron Man - Eddie the Head 7" Figure

He’s seen more incarnations over the years on countless album covers, posters, and T-shirts, but today we’re thrilled to take it back to the Eddie that started it all. Our latest Iron Maiden 7″ action figure captures their iconic mascot, Eddie the Head, as he appears on the cover of their 1980 self-titled debut.

Flying in on Ed Force One, this 7″ Eddie perfectly recreates the crude ‘n’ rude cover of that landmark album. Eddie comes loaded with articulation and a knife accessory — as if his face wasn’t enough of a hint to stay away — and make sure you open yours carefully, because the card behind the figure can be used as an album cover backdrop!
Ed lives!

In 1980, Iron Maiden was raw and dangerous and hungry for heavy metal stardom. Likewise, Eddie was a long way from being locked in chains on Piece of Mind or crossing over to The Final Frontier. He hadn’t even been the Phantom of the Opera yet!

Like the band founder Steve Harris in 1980, our man Ed is practically a kid here. His t-shirt’s baggy, and his sneakers are scuffed. Not even as developed as he’d be when Maiden released Killers a year later, self-titled Eddie was a monster unto himself.

Enterbay - 1/4th Scale TDK The Joker

Just thought we'd show you guys whats been going on over on the Enterbay side of things. Last year they announced that they acquired The Dark Knight license and the production of the first 1/4th scaled figures to come from the franchise. Here's just a little sample of whats to come from EB. Looking good for sure.

The Dark Knight Joker - The Comparison

Here's a little something we found while browsing around. This picture shows a perfect example of how well Hot Toys achieved Heath Ledger's likeness with their DX 2.0 figure. The left is an actual still taken from The Dark Knight, and the right is HT's figure, with no alterations. Amazing!
