Hot on the heels of the A:IW Iron Man announcement and Cap teaser, Hot Toys revealed its latest 1/6 Thor from the upcoming (likely to be epic) film.
From Hot Toys:
The war between Avengers and villainous Thanos will finally hit the silver screen this upcoming May in Avengers: Infinity War. Superheroes will join forces to fight Thanos, while the fate of the Earth and the Universe hangs in the balance! Hot Toys is pleased to officially introduce the 1/6th scale Thor collectible figure from Avengers: Infinity War!
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 cape, detail recreation of Thor’s new weapon Stormbreaker, and a specially designed figure stand with movie logo.
It looks to be another amazing sculpt – HT is knocking these out of the park and setting some high standards. Curious to see how the “luminous” eye works – reflective with light shining on it? I like the versatility of the clothing; cape, no cape – armored arms and bare arms. Lightning effect add-ons look hot too!
By way of these pics they’ve shown off the new Teen Groot and Rocket as well – see pics below.
Thor should be up for pre-order soon from your favorite distributor or retailer.
Trevor is a New York-based Creative Director and owner of The Brand Counselors. He has a growing collection of 150ish 1:6th scale stock and custom figures (and more and more Lego sets). Toy photography melds his childhood dreams of comic book illustration and film directing with his design talents and – in his mind – justifies the ridiculous money he spends on these things. When he’s not shooting, he enjoys kayaking, catching up on good TV and building seemingly endless custom figures.
