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.

Get a Personalized SHIELD Guidebook for Your Little (or Big) Agent of SHIELD

Put Me In The Story - Avengers Black Ops Field Guide

I’ve been suffering from some lingering guilt ever since getting a personalized SHIELD badge and ID card at NYCC a few years ago, when the Agents of SHIELD TV sereies was just getting started. You see, I got one for myself, and not for my wife. So when I got the opportunity to¬†personalize The Avengers: Black Ops Field Guide book from Put Me In The Story, I jumped at the chance to immortalize Agent Random Things¬†in print.

The process took just a few minutes, and after about a week, I was able to give her a completely personalized book, including a SHIELD ID card with her picture and details, a dedication I wrote, and a bunch of other cool stuff in the book. I recreated the process with a pre-Super Soldier Serum Steve Rogers for you to follow along, since my wife would terminate me with extreme prejudice if I were to divulge any of her personal info. ūüėÄ
