For years Hot Toys and Sideshow Collectibles have been pumping out these super-cool, hyper-realistic 1/6th scale figures. With the premiere of one of the most anticipated movies this year looming on the near horizon, I thought it might be fun to see just what Hot Toys was doing in preparation for the release of Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War. And holy cow, not surprisingly, they’re killing it!
Check out the latest addition to their stable, this incredibly detailed Black Widow figure, that looks to have jumped straight off of the big screen. Click on an image to enlarge.
“Made with meticulous craftsmanship, the movie-accurate collectible is beautifully crafted with striking likeness of Black Widow’s appearance portrayed by Scarlett Johansson in the film, the collectible figure features a newly painted head sculpt with mid-length ash blonde real fabric hair, a beautifully tailored Black Widow’s latest outfit with fine detail textures and weathering effect, a variety of weapons including disk shooters, batons, and a specially designed movie-themed figure stand.”
The Black Widow is $220 and you can see more images and pre-order HERE.
Another fan-favorite is the God of Thunder himself, Thor. Click on an image to enlarge.
“Sophisticatedly crafted based on Chris Hemsworth’s appearance in the film with astonishing likeness, the Thor collectible figure features a newly developed head sculpt with specially applied luminous reflective effect on the eye that accentuates Thor using his thunder power, a newly developed muscular body with two pairs of interchangeable arms, intricately detailed body armor with LED light up circle plates and lightning effect accessories, a detachable red-colored cap, detail recreation of Thor’s weapon Stormbreaker, and a specially designed figure stand with movie logo.”

My personal favorite is this Iron Man figure with the amazingly beautiful new stylized armor. Click on an image to enlarge.
“With remarkable movie-accuracy, the sixth scale figure is expertly crafted based on Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man in Avengers: Infinity War, featuring an interchangeable helmeted head sculpt with metallic red, gold and silver colored armor painting and a newly painted head sculpt with striking likenesses, LED light-up functions scattered throughout the armor, a variety of Iron Man’s latest weapons including interchangeable LED light-up Nano Repulsor Cannon, interchangeable arm cannon, interchangeable Nano Boosters and specially designed figure stand with movie logo.”

And last but not least, you can’t have a war without opposition. And in this case, the opposing faction is the fierce, cosmic warlord THANOS. Click on an image to enlarge.
“The spectacular 1/6th scale Thanos collectible figure is meticulously crafted with impressive likeness based on the main appearance of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. The collectible figure features two newly developed and sophisticatedly crafted interchangeable head sculpts inspired by Thano’s serious and angry expressions respectively. It also comes with two styles of LED light up metallic gold-colored Infinity Gauntlets with all six Infinity Stones and weathering effect, an additional interchangeable non-articulated left arm with great muscle details for Thanos’ iconic and intimidating clenched fist pose, a newly sculpted and tailored armored costume with intricate details, and a specially designed figure base and backdrop.”
