Hot Toys 10th Anniversary Exhibition Tokyo Event Announcements And Pics From The Floor   Leave a comment

Hey Everybody,

The collectibles market has exploded with companies in the last 15 years; Some started out great with new licenses and ended up cheap and well behind the times.

Others grew and push the medium of the action figure and collectible to new heights. Hot Toys out of Honk Kong is one company that has risen to the top, boosting the 1/6 scale figure to the high level pop art.

Over December 24th-26th Hot Toys had thier 10th anniversary expo in Tokyo Japan featuring displays of their Movie Master Piece line of 1/6 scale figures, future present and past.

Exclusives flyer ad from Japan for the show.

Batman Demon is half of a two pack with The Scarecrow below.

“Beat It” video Michael Jackson looks great for any Jackson fans out there

A lot of new license announcement at the show, new Marvel movie stuff, video game Metal Gear Solid,

the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie, Disney keeping the money ship sailing,

director Zack Snyder’s new one Sucker Punch, hopefully the story holds up to the eye candy trailers. The character design is cool, we’ll see what the flick plays like.

Hot Toys keeps amazing with their choice of  older licenses and the level they go to get likenesses of actors as of late.

There were also lots of great 1/6 scale figures were on display that had already been announced, but not all seen up to this point.

Marvel’s Ghost Rider movie figure looks cool. The flaming head turned out good.

Stallone’s Barnie Ross figure from the Expendables. Hot Toys always loving their Sly.

The two in one DX Bruce Lee from Enter The Dragon looks super sick. Can’t wait.

Platoon’s Barnes is looking fantastic. Loving that Hot Toys got the license right.

The 1984 Terminator T-800. Really excited for this one, been waiting for  years for a  proper Tech Noir club Arnie.

Some big surprises at the show including a prototype for the new Indiana Jones 1/6 scale DX figure.

The likeness looks off to me, but being the prototype hopefully they will refine the features to closer resemble Harrison Ford.

I love the map room set and back drop, looks good.

As always the last few years, new Iron man stuff is always on display.

Mark V with all the bell and whistles including suit in briefcase form.

One of the bigger surprises was an unpainted prototype of the 1/6 scale Iron Monger figure from the first movie on display. Hope we get a Jeff Bridges head in the set as well, that would be nice.

Detailed picture of  the Alice figure from the new Resident Evil movie.

The likeness To Milla Jovovich is pretty good I think. All the accessories and weapons look great in classic Hot toys style.

As they have already shot two weeks of the new reboot of the Spiderman franchise, with new director, new cast and all new direction with the character it seems…

the absolute strangest time to release a Spiderman figure from the Sam Raimi film series. (I loved Spiderman 1 & 2.  3 was a huge disappointment to put it nicely; A huge pill of steaming shit that the studio should have kept their greasy fat fingers out of and let the director they hired for the third time do his job, to put it more truthfully). I guess regardless, the figure looks great and hopefully the fans of the Raimi’s incarnation of Spidey are pleased with the release.

The new Thor movie is looking better and better as we see more footage and pictures of the character and world he inhabits.

The likeness of Chris Hemsworth is right on to me, the armor looks sick and a great look at his helmet to boot. A really great looking piece. Can’t wait for the movie.

The Captain American movie figure official license announcement

Sucker Punch announcement

A great long awaited surprise for Crow Fan’s

And finally the official press release for the ’89 Batman licenses…

Here comes the highly expected Batman (1989) movie license!

Amid much negotiation and many difficulties, Hot Toys is finally granted the likeness right of the renowned actor Jack Nicholson to produce the collectible figure of his character in the movie.

As many ones may know, it is very difficult to get it and it is only granted for Hot Toys, thanks to the quality standard being recognized! Though it is difficult to get it, it is worth because we can bring such great collectible figure to our fans! So fans, please stay tuned our update in 2011!

Till Next Time. Stay Tuned.
