Hot Toys Announces Iron Man 3 Pepper Potts and Mark IX Sets

Hot Toys Iron Man 3 Pepper Potts and Mark IX

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts has been a key supporting character in the three Iron Man and the first of the Avengers movies, so I’m sure many fans have been waiting for her to get a Hot Toys figure. You will be able to get her individually, and she’ll come with a very cool accessory – an interchangeable arm from the Iron Man Mark IX, so you can recreate a pivotal scene in the movie.

You will also be able to get her in a set with a full Iron Man Mark IX armor. AFAIK, this armor appeared only during the House Party Protocol, and solely to donate its arm to Pepper. Why would you want the set, then? Because it will come with two even cooler accessories – a Pepper Potts headsculpt in the Mark 42 helmet (that you can put on your Hot Toys Mark 42 armor) and a Mark VII helmet with LED light up features (exclusive to the Sideshow release of the 2-pack). Way to get us to buy yet another Iron Man, Hot Toys! ūüėÄ

As always, you can pre-order from Sideshow Collectibles:¬†Solo –¬†Pepper Potts Marvel Sixth Scale Figure¬†|¬†Exclusive 2-pack¬†–¬†Pepper Potts and Mark IX Marvel Sixth Scale Figure Set

Hulk Hogan is Gone from the WWE, but His Toys Live On

Mattel WWE Hulk Hogan figures still in stores

Almost exactly a year and a half after Hulk Hogan’s much lauded return to the WWE, he’s gone – this time it’s probably for good. The WWE uncermoniously fired Hogan¬†on Friday, in advance of a National Enquirer article detailing racist comments made by Hogan to Heather Clem. (Clem was the woman, married to Hogan’s friend, featured in the sex tape scandal Hogan suffered a few years back – apparently the WWE can get past sex scandals but draws the line at racism.)

The¬†WWE has¬†also¬†been busy eliminating as many traces of him from their programming and website as possible. For example, Hogan is no longer shown as a member of the WWE Hall of Fame, in which he was inducted in 2005. They’ve also removed all traces of Hogan merchandise from the WWE Shop.

What’s unclear is how long licensed product, like Mattel’s WWE figures, will stay out there. As of now, you can still find plenty of Hulk Hogan figures on Amazon, a couple on Walmart.com, and one at Target. I’m sure the WWE will nix any planned Hogan figures and Mattel would also likely want to distance themselves from the scandal. But they also bet heavily on his return, producing several Hogan figures in the short time that he was back. Lots of that product is already¬†on shelves and in warehouses.

Mattel and the Four Horsemen Provide Post-SDCC Mattycollector Updates

Mattel and Four Horsemen post-SDCC updates

The folks at Mattycollector and the Four Horsemen have provided some post-SDCC updates. Mattel provided the words, and the 4H have posted a bunch of pics – we’ve combined them here.

For the tl;dr version, the three subs (Collector’s Choice, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe aka Filmation, and Thundercats Classics) will be offered at different times (now, October, and early 2016, respectively). Matty will work with Digital River on how to combine subs. Snake Mountain will be 10 – 20% smaller. And getting Power Con exclusives into non-attendees’ hands is He-Man.org’s problem.

Walgreens Teases Exclusive Marvel Legends Ant-Man and Daredevil

Walgreens Marvel Legends Ant-Man and Daredevil Teaser

If you check¬†out the Walgreens site for their exclusive Marvel Legends Ant-Man and Daredevil, right now you’ll see teasers for both Marvel Legends figures plus a third Hasbro exclusive for My Little Pony. We first saw the Ant-Man and DD variants at SDCC – they look great. According to Marvel’s announcement, Ant-Man should be going on sale at Walgreens on July 20. I’m guessing sometime in September for Daredevil.

For those of you not familiar with these looks, Ant-Man is in his Black Ant costume, and it’s supposed to be Eric O’Grady (the third Ant-Man, after Hank Pym and Scott Lang) under there. O’Grady was originally the Irredeemable Ant-Man, a fun take on the character by Robert Kirkman that explores what happens when a not-so-good guy gets his hands on Pym’s latest¬†suit. While the Black Ant¬†look is cool, I’d also love to get him in his Irredeemable costume.

The yellow and red Daredevil costume is DD’s original costume, before he donned the all red suit. The costume got featured again in Daredevil: Yellow by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, a recounting of DD’s origin.
