If you missed out on the first version of The Steel by sixth scale manufacturer Toys Era chances are you don’t want to miss out on this re-released and updated version of the same character, The Steel 2.0 (Colossus) Premium Edition Toys Era that is set to release in Quarter 4 of this year! Toys Era realized that the first version of this release became very difficult to find after the pre-order phase because the production run was a little smaller than it probably should have been. Typically these companies tend to lean towards the side of caution when deciding how many figures to produce based on the pre-order numbers that are submitted via distributors. In this case it came back to bite them since they likely would have been able to sell through twice as many since after the release and Reviews hit the web everyone began searching for the original The Steel sixth scale figure.
This newly updated 2.0 version includes some changes to the size of the body and the proportions of the upper body / torso area to give this character a more full, menacing look. This figure, The Steel 2.0, is sporting a black and red vest with the ‘X’ design as seen in the Deadpool 2 movie (now available on Blu-Ray /DVD for those of you who don’t own it) that was recently released. This costume is definitely an improvement over what we saw on the first version but it’s all a matter of preference at the end of the day. This version of The Steel 2.0 Premium Edition – TOYS ERA comes with (2) unique head sculpts of Colossus so you have different display options for your 1:6 scale figure collection.
REMEMBER, the first version of this figure SOLD OUT during the pre-order phase and finding an available unit after was incredibly difficult. Pre-Order dates are coming to a close at most major one sixth scale retailers/distributors so NOW is the time to get your order in before it’s too late! Finding one of these available on the secondary market later for 1:6 scale collectors will be difficult and it’s simply not worth it.
