Hot Toys Thanos - Guardians of the Galaxy - 1/6 MMS280 video review

Here the video review on Thanos. I can't deny the flaws on the visible joints and the LED switch placement on the rock throne - it feels a bit rushed and no idea why Hot Toys has not founda better solution. It would have been so easy to just paint the feet joints / ankles just golden instead of blue for example.

The mad titan Thanos has arrived. Impressive piece by Hot Toys but has also some flaw. Review later this weekend. For now some photos:

Ikea Detolf LED Kit "Downlighter" by

I acquired a custom made LED light up kit for the Ikea detolf glass cabinets. You can get this and more variants from Dave of . Since Ikea has switched their Ikea dioder led kit to a warm color temperature a lot of us collectors were looking for alternatives. This custom product now totally covers the needs.

  • available in cold white or warm light
  • easy to install and setup, no additional tools need
  • in the package you'll find:
    • 4 LED bars
    • frame / rails for the cables (grey plastic covers with tape to attach)
    • power supply adapter
    • on / off switch module
  • cables are very well hidden
  • works for left and right door hinge setup (order the correct one)
The installation is super easy: You'll place the kit directly between the metal frame rod and the outer glass shelf. After a dry run just peel off the tape and fix it in place. Then attach the 4 LED bars to the different power connectors coming out of the grey plastic cover rails. The power supply leaves the frame at the bottom just next to the door - then you can pull the power cables underneath the detolf and connect it to the mains.

Super clean setup - defiantely will get more kits of this product.

Hot Toys Maria Hill - Avengers: AoU - 1/6 MMS305 exclusive - video review and photos

Another Marvel update for my 1/6 collection. I decided to get this years toy fair exclusive of Hot Toys Avengers Age of Ultron line: Maria Hill. And she turned out super sweet. The headsculpt is a real beauty and they captured Cobie Smulders perfectly. Only drawback i see with the figure is the limited posability of the feet or boots. These are just solid pieces and also not balanced good enough. But other than that: a must for every Avengers fan.

More photos after the jump incl. comparison with Black Widow.

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.
