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

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.

Hot Toys Announces Avengers: Age of Ultron Maria Hill

Hot Toys Avengers Maria Hill 01

Avengers fans have been waiting for SHIELD Agent Maria Hill for a while now. I think when Hot Toys made Nick Fury and then Agent Coulson, it was clear that they could go wide and deep in the franchise. Now that they’ve announced Maria Hill, I believe that leaves only Quicksilver as the sole remaining main character from the Avengers ensemble that’s left to do. And if you want to go even wider and deeper, there’s still Dr. Erik Selvig available.

Maria Hill is a “Toy Fair” exclusive – in Hot Toys parlance, that means that she’s available only at various toy shows this summer. We first saw the Hot Toys¬†Maria Hill¬†at SDCC¬†– while her expression is a bit stoic, I think it’s a pretty good likeness for Cobie Smulders. But since they’re the official distributor of Hot Toys in the United States, you can pre-order the Marvel Maria Hill Sixth Scale Figure from Sideshow Collectibles. Happy shopping!

SDCC 2015: Hasbro Transformers Panel Video and Official Pics

SDCC 2015 Hasbro Transformers Panel and Reveals

Hasbro held their Transformers Generations: More Than Meets the Eye panel on Thursday. We shot video of the panel, and Hasbro followed up by sending us the official pics for the products mentioned during the panel.

Talking to Jerry Jivoin and the marketing and design team on Transformers, it’s clear how much more compelling the Transformers are when the toys are part of the story, whether that story is being told in the comics, video games, or media on the small or big screen. That comes through in their panel presentation this year.
