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.

Hot Toys Elder Predator 2.0 - AvP1/6 MMS325 2016 - photo review

A rather uninspiring release of Hot Toys: The AvP Elder Predator 2.0 from 2016, MMS325. It's alright, but no stunning piece. The headsculpt is a let down: googly eyes and quite a cartoony look. It does not fit to the other Preds of this lines in terms of the face sculpt. The rest of the figure is well executed though. The accessories are well built and with some cool details, but overall I can't justify the Hong Kong release price of almost 300 USD. I decided to share only some photos on this piece.
