“We’re in the Endgame now.” With the conclusion of this phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe coming to an end and finally getting a wrap on the 22 films to date with the release of Avengers: Endgame in theaters worldwide we are now seeing Hot Toys pre-order announcements rolling out almost daily! Thankfully Marvel has played this one close to the chest (rightfully so) and been careful not to spoil anything with their figure reveals – making sure that certain accessories were are not revealed to fans prior to seeing the film. Like with any Avengers film, there are a ton of characters on-screen throughout the 3-hour run time of the movie so it’s possible that Hot Toys has a dozen or more releases in the pipeline for this film alone. So far we have seen a number of different figures go up for pre-order so let’s get right into it..
Immortalize one of the best on screen villains comic book films have ever seen with this Thanos (Avengers: Endgame) Sixth Scale Figure decked out in full armor ready to go toe to toe with the Avengers as they work to try and undo what he accomplished in Avengers: Infinity War. This Hot Toys version of Thanos comes with the Infinity Gauntlet and his double-sided sword that he wielded before obtaining the stones. If you only have the space or money to purchase 1 version of Thanos this is undoubtedly the release to own by Hot Toys.
With a lot of fan speculation surrounding the future of Tony Stark & Steve Rogers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe it’s entirely possible that this is one of the last Hot Toys Iron Man figures we may see released ever. Whether or not you are a fan of the design of the suit or not (and how could you not be – it’s bulky and a return to the classic balance of red & gold) it would be wise to lock in a Pre-Order for this Iron Man Mark LXXXV (Avengers: Endgame) Sixth Scale Figure before it’s too late and you are kicking yourself in the ass for missing what will go down as an iconic suit in movie and comic book history.
Woah, woah, WOAH! Where did all this sexiness come from? It looks like Hawkeye (*cough* Ronin) is getting a makeover in Avengers: Endgame with a complete redesign of his suit. Looking a lot more like a ninja and a lot less like.. well.. a dude with a bow & arrow. The outfit we saw on Hawkeye in Age of Ultron was alright but in previous films it feels like his design and “cool factor” was more of a secondary thing for the writers & directors. Not now though. This major change could be in preparation for the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe where we might see Hawkeye/Ronin embrace a more critical role on the team. Whatever the case, there’s no question that this Hawkeye – Deluxe Version (Avengers: Endgame) Sixth Scale Figure by Hot Toys is a must own figure that comes packed with a head sculpt that is so accurate it’s almost creepy.
Hot Toys collectors and fans everywhere exploded with joy after getting a first look at the updated version of Black Widow as seen in Avengers: Endgame. Why all the excitement you ask? Previous releases of this figure have been met with a resounding “meh” from Hot Toys fans, continually citing that the likeness to Scarlett Johansson was just not where it should be. Collectors always mentioned the biggest issue with the accuracy being the rooted hair. Well, Hot Toys took that to heart this time and decided to finally give us a version of Black Widow that comes with sculpted hair – REJOICE! The likeness in this Black Widow (Avengers: Endgame) Sixth Scale Figure is spot on and it looks like some improvements have been made to the outfit versus previous releases, too.
Avengers: Infinity War gave us a different look for Captain America that we had not previously seen before: a scruffy beard, a darker colored suit not sporting the red, white & blue. Many Hot Toys collectors were happy to scoop that version up and have another display option for Chris Evans’ character but Hot Toys collectors without a classic look for Cap’ had their fingers crossed we would see one from this film and low and behold, we did. This version of Captain America (Avengers: Endgame) Sixth Scale Figure has a more classic look that fans of the character are used to. The addition of the “scales” on the upper body of the suit really add to the overall appearance. And yay, the return of Captain America’s shield – something we missed seeing in Infinity War!
One figure that Hot Toys fans and collectors have been patiently waiting for the last few years is Nebula and it’s good to see with the release of Avengers: Endgame Hot Toys is finally bringing a sixth scale figure version of her to market. The Guardians of the Galaxy line-up just wouldn’t be complete without this partly sadistic, strange, but often misunderstood character. In the past we saw some 1:6 scale custom versions of Nebula from Chinese manufacturers but it’s good to see Hot Toys decided it was worth producing & selling an official version of her. Lock in a pre-order for Nebula (Avengers: Endgame) Sixth Scale Figure now to make sure you’re not stuck paying inflated secondary market prices later after she undoubtedly sells out.
There is still very likely a TON more Hot Toys releases in the pipeline for Avengers: Endgame but the company is being careful (likely under strict control by Marvel Studios and Disney) not to reveal those figures prior to fans getting a chance to see the film or else it would spoil events of the movie. Check back often as new announcements are expected over the next 2-weeks and we will be working to get pictures and details live as soon as they are available! Now get off your butt and get to the theater for a showing (or second.. third maybe?) of Avengers: Endgame and enjoy!
