Marvel did a great job of teasing the reveal of Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron, both in the marketing campaign and the movie itself. So it’s not surprising that Hot Toys held back revealing their 1/6 scale figure of Vision until now, after the movie has been in theaters a couple weeks. This way, there shouldn’t be too many folks wondering what that is in his forehead, or why he comes with Mjolnir, Thor’s mystical uru hammer.
I think Vision has a great head sculpt, but I’m wondering about the clothing folds in his “suit” – isn’t the movie Vision made out of Vibranium?
Bill has had his hands full moving and setting up a new home, but with Avengers: Age of Ultron in theaters now and Ant-Man not far behind, he managed to put together a new comic featuring (you guessed it) the Avengers with a special appearance by Ant-Man! Please enjoy the Ghost in the Machine Man, and be sure to check out the rest of Bill’s work here at AFP and at Bill’s Comics.
Pre-orders for 12-inch Heisenberg and 6-inch Saul Goodman open Friday, May 15
Mezco has announced two more exclusives for San Diego Comic-Con 2015 – a pair of Breaking Bad figures. Saul Goodman gets a repaint and his packaging will serve as a diorama of his office – gotta love those Corinthian columns and the U.S. Constitution mural! Walter White, aka Heisenberg, gets the 12-inch treatment with a new deco – a black jacket and blue shirt. Heisenberg features a removable hat and interchangeable glasses and sunglasses.
Hasbro has released hi-res pics of the upcoming Hulkbuster wave of Marvel Legends, and we’ve got them here in all their glory. The wave consists of War Machine from Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Marvel Now! Iron Man, Doctor Strange, the Vision, Blizzard, a re-do of Valkyrie, and Thundra from the Lady Liberators.
It looks like you’ll have to pick up all seven figures to make the build-a-figure Hulkbuster – not a surprise given its size. Pre-orders have not yet hit for the wave, but I’ll keep searching for Marvel Legends at Entertainment Earth and Amazon, for where I usually find the best deals on cases and individual figures respectively.
Masters of the Universe Classics Rio Blast and DC Universe Classics Aquaman and Robin also available
Blast Attak, this month’s Club Eternia figure, may be considered a dud by many Masters of the Universe Classics fans, but Early Access this month is sure to be a madhouse – that’s because Mattycollector is making Two-Bad available. As some of you may recall, during the subscription drive for the 2014 Club Eternia, Mattel announced that Two-Bad would have no day of sales inventory, leading to much angst from the fan base and presumably to more subscriptions.
What remains to be sold during is likely the customer service stock for the figure – so be prepared for a massive rush followed by a quick sell-out. Adding to the mayhem are two of the final DC Universe Classics figures – Aquaman with his hook hand and the Damian Wayne Robin, both with their own draw. Rio Blast rounds out Early Access.
Early Access has Two-Bad, Rio Blast, Aquaman and Robin, and opens tomorrow at 8AM PST. All Access adds Blast Attak, and will open up at 9AM on Friday.
