Hot Toys’ Black Widow, For All Your Tiny Scarlett Johansson Needs

Another Marvel movie, another selection of eerily realistic action figures from Hot Toys, this time with everyone’s favorite product of the Cold War, Black Widow. She even comes with lit-up Widows Bite gauntlets, the better to pose her electrocuting my Lex Luthor action figure. Or jumpstarting my Portal turret.

Oh who am I kidding, I can’t afford this figure, so, like you, I will be gazing at these scarily accurate pictures of it instead.

We’re Not So Sure About This Avengers/Star Wars Costume Swap

Although this costume swap with The Avengers and Star Wars Hot Toys by redditor OdoWanKenobi is a fun idea, we were thinking it’s sad Black Widow was relegated to pretty much the only woman available (especially when Leia doesn’t really fit with her character). Susana decided Black Widow and Hawkeye should really be the R2-D2 and C-3PO of the cast. You can guess which is which. Bravo on The Hulk though.

Hot Toys Releasing An Iron Man Figure With No Armor, Who’s Really Beat Up, And Has Lots Of Toys

Now that I own a Hot Toys figure, I can personally attest to their quality but while they’ve already produced a few Iron Man collectibles, they’ve decided to put out another, mostly armor-less one. “Hot Toys is thrilled to introduce the Tony Stark (The Mechanic) Collectible Figurine after the exciting scene where Tony Stark creates homemade weapons to infiltrate The Mandarin’s mansion,” they write on Facebook. “Tony Stark in his battle damaged civilian attire in the movie, highlighting the newly developed head sculpt, an advanced body with light-up chest light and greatly detailed weapons and accessories.” Take a look.

This Collectable Captain America Figure is Eerily Realistic

This Captain America Star Spangled Man Version Limited Edition Collectible Figurine looks impressively similar to the Steve Rogers played by Chris Evans in Captain America: The First Avenger. The figure even has stubble, 30 points of articulation, seven exchangeable hands, weapons, a shield, and the ability to convince you to buy war bonds. Check out two more photos of this prototype design after the jump, and head over to Hot Toys to learn how you might be able to get one of your own.

Things We Saw Today: Clark Gregg Meets His Agent Coulson Doll

We previously showed you the reveal of the Marvel Agent Coulson Hot Toys figure but nothing beats actor Clark Gregg seeing it in person for the first time. I have to say, after finally getting my first Hot Toys figure (Terminator 2, Sarah Connor) this past week, I finally see what all the fuss is about. (via MTV

Bane Gets Back-Breaking Poses In His Lifelike TDKR Hot Toys Figure

Besides the artist who repaints character dolls, I’d probably say Hot Toys does the best job at replicating an actor’s precise looks in doll form. Their Loki, based on Tom Hiddleston’s character in The Avengers, still takes the cake for me but their recently revealed Bane from The Dark Knight Rises also does a pretty great job looking like actor Tom Hardy. This is also the first Hot Toys figure I’ve seen with its shirt off, which is vaguely uncomfortable. You’ll see why…

I See What They Did There

Shocker: Stop Motion With Freakishly Real-Looking Action Figures Produces Freaky Video

We like to joke a lot about Hot Toy’s incredibly detailed character replica toys, and how, while they primarily fill us with awe and desire, they’re also just a tiny bit creepy. Because they really, really look just like the movie stars they’re modeled after. So really it was only a matter of time before somebody decided to try doing stop motion with them, and the result weaves in and out of the Uncanny Valley like the Batpod through traffic.

Live With Tony Stark Thanks To Hot Toys’ New Avengers Iron Man Figure

Hot Toys keeps trying to make geeks go bankrupt. It’s not nice and I demand they stop immediately. Who am I kidding? KEEP MAKING THE AWESOME. We previously showcased their astoundingly realistic Loki statue as well as the moveable-haired Black Widow from their Avengers line. Just yesterday we were happily surprised to find out Agent Coulson is getting his time in the spotlight as well. But while we wait for full images of his figure to be released, Hot Toys has dropped Tony Stark on our doorstep. Take a look at his various accessories and let us know if you think the unmasked hero looks enough like Robert Downey Jr. for your tastes.

Clean Out Those Display Cases: Avengers Black Widow Statue Announced

Remember that eerily realistic Loki statue from Hot Toys? Well, we were wondering when they’d announce a Black Widow statue — it turns out it is hitting the market soon and I couldn’t be more pleased with the representation of Avengers actress Scarlett Johansson’s “kicking ass and taking names” face. Hit the jump for more detailed images (and super cool poses!).
