Hot Toys Hulk Deluxe Set - Avengers: AoU - 1/6 MMS287 - video review and photos

We got a new Avengers Hulk in - it's Hot Toys second incarnation of Hulk for the movie Avengers 2 , Age of Ultron. The paintjob on this figure will lead to big discussions - but you can't deny the quality of execution in terms of the paint and sculpting quality by Hot Toys. Be sure to get the deluxe set since you'll get another "smashing body" and a cool angry face. Check out some photos and comparison shots with HT first Hulk. And as always a video with some further comparisons and box shots (the box is massive, almost 2 normal boxes tall and wide!).

Hot Toys Iron Man Mark III - 1/6 MMS256 D07 - video review and photos

Finally I got my hands on a Mark III, its Hot Toys latest diecast release and the third Mark III of this company after many years of the first 2 releases. Unfortunately there are still lots of plastic parts on this figure, so call it a diecast is really a bit borderline. Especially the abs section is all plastic and not even with an articulation. So they give you a secondary piece that allows you to do the "landing pose", which is a "safe" way to do and it works like a charm with the replacement part. I understand there are some limitations in terms of articulation and diecast parts, but i think they could have done more. But overall this is a very solid a nice release, especially for those never owned a mark III before. The paintjob brought up some discussion but I think the cherry or candy apple red still is the correct choice compared to the suit up scene in Iron Man 1. Oh...and important fact: you can definately close the gap between shoulder and torso with the shoulder pad armor, they are very flexible and can cover the gap.

Enjoy some photos and a video review.

Hot Toys Black Widow - Avengers Age of Ultron - 1/6 MMS288 video and photo review

The latest Black Widow of Hot Toys has hit the shelf in my collection and I'm quite pleased, it's no must have have but well executed. The facesculpt could use a bit more "lifelikeness" and has about the same stare in the eyes as the Winter Soldier edition. Enjoy a video review including a comparison with the first Avengers Black widow which i still prefer. Also looots of photos!

Hot Toys War Machine Special Version (not Milk) MMS166 - video and photo review

I came across this figure at a local toy fair and could have a look at it (brand new). This War Machine Special Edition was never on my initial must buy list but i saved some budget this month not picking up other recent releases, so I decided to add this to my ever growing Iron Man Hot Toys collection.The paint scheme is really unique which was my main buying reason.

Check out some photos and a video review. I also included a comparison to the original War Machine:

An important information if you consider buying this: there are 2 versions of this figure. One is the normale Special edition (this here) and then there is the "Milk" edition which gives you an additional stand with a Milk logo on it (from what I know Milk is a magazine in Hong-Kong). The milk version is even more rare and will cost you an additional 100 - 200 USD, and beware that you don't get fooled with eBay offers that want to sell you a Milk version which are in reality just normal special editions, so have an eye out for this. The normal special edition is rising in terms of pricing too, currently mid 2015 you have to calculate around 500 - 600 USD - which is heavy for a repaint.
