Scalpers everywhere this morning are crying in their coffee…Hot Toys has teased it’s latest 1/6th Marvel Masterpiece; Doctor Strange from the all-star, all-incredible Infinity War!
If you’re like me, you sat on this first one and lived to regret it while scrolling through pic after pic of that fantastic fig. But the patient true believers have been rewarded! This new release looks just as amazing. The arguments over the better headsculpt will rage, I’m sure, but this new one at least matches (if not surpasses) the original. As is the norm now, HT is just slaying likenesses.
In addition to the great sculpt, the new incarnation of the good Doctor includes; two styles of costume display options with a magnetically attachable asymmetrical high-collared Cloak of Levitation with intricate embroidery, a variety of mystical artifacts including the Eye of Agamotto, a pair of sling rings, an array of accessories including variety of interchangeable hands and numerous mystic art effect as well as mandalas of lights allowing combinations for different mystic gestures and a movie-themed dynamic figure stand with character backdrop.
I will not let this one slip through my fingers, even if I have to bargain with Dormammu (or in this case my wallet) to get it! He should be up for pre-order (and selling out soon after) imminently!
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.
