Hot Toys Iron Man Blue Steel - IM 3 1/6 MMS391 - photo and video review

Just got the latest Iron Man 1/6 release by Hot Toys in my collection - Blue Steel Mark XXX / 30, a variant of the Silver Cenutrion suit. Quite a refreshing suit because of the blue and silver paintjob and the perfect companion to the Silver Centurion suit. Sculpt, articulation and overall feel is identical with Silver Centurion. Notice: there is no switch out Robert Downey Jr. headsculpt. Checkout some photos and the review.

Hot Toys Black Panther - CA: Civil War 1/6 MMS363 - photo gallery

I'd like to share you some photos of a recent Hot Toys Purchase: it's the Black Panther figure from the Captain America: Civil War movie. Lovely detailed suit they put on this figure: it's amazingly detailed with markings and segmented sections, ultra thin and thus allows a lot of articulation. Unfortunately the figure is missing a secondary portrait of the actor and some accessories - but as a Marvel collectors a sleek and yet elegant figure for your shelf.

Sideshow Predator 2 maquette repaint

A good friend of mine is a known pro painter in the predator collectible community and I asked him to repaint the unmasked headsculpt of my Sideshow Predator 2 maquette. The armor I repainted by myself going for a more copperish look with lots of drybrushing and adding more green oxidation effects. Also i went ahead and repainted the base going for a lava rock look with bright drybrush highlights - by far the best and most visible change you can see on the skulls on the base: i used mainly vallejo acrylic colors in this process.

Also enjoy some comparison photos and if you want to see the original product, please see my review here.

Hot Toys Sneaky Mark 15 - Iron Man 3 1/6 MMS348 - photo & video review

Another addition for the ever growing Iron Man 3 house party protocol line by Hot Toys: this time it's Sneaky, the Mark 15 / XV which basically is highly advanced stealth suit. Hot Toys did a good job on this release and went for a total fresh sculpt without recycling parts from earlier releases.
