Bandai Reveals S.H. Figuarts Avengers: Age of Ultron Hulkbuster Iron Man

Bandai S.H. Figuarts Avengers Age of Ultron Hulkbuster Iron Man

The last time we saw the Avengers: Age of Ultron line from S.H. Figuarts, Bandai was showing off the Iron Man Mark 45, and the Hulkbuster Iron Man was still being teased. Now, as the Hulkbuster nears the start of its pre-orders in Japan a week from today, we’re glad to final see it and learn more about its features.

The Hulkbuster Mark 44 will clock in at nearly 10 inches tall. While it’s 1/12 scaled, some may find it a bit small if you’re looking to add it to a Marvel Legends collection. The Hulkbuster will also include some diecast parts, and have LED light-up features. And it looks to have some serious articulation. Some Figuarts figures include interchangeable hands – this one might have jointed figures allowing everything from fists to a repulsor blast poses.

This won’t be cheap though. The pre-order price in Japan is about $285. We’ll keep a watch out for pre-orders for the States.

Coming Soon from Funko – Ant-Man Pop! Vinyls

Funko is getting ready for the tiny hero’s big screen debut this summer… revealing their Ant-Man Pop! Vinyl figures. Scott Lang gets Pop!-ified and looks super cool in one very detailed Ant-Man suit designed by Hank Pym.

Also in the photo released from Funko, their Ant-Man “Secret Character” Pop! – Scott Lang’s nemesis, Yellowjacket! Both will be available in June (you can pre-order the Ant-Man Pop! vinyls at Entertainment Earth) so there’s something to look forward to if you can’t wait till the Ant-Man movie comes out July 19.

Border Patrol: Marvel Legends Captain America, Hulkbuster Iron Man, and Daredevil

Border Patrol - Marvel Legends Captain America, Hulkbuster Iron Man, and Netflix Daredevil

For this edition of Border Patrol, we’re highlighting three iconic Marvel superheroes:

  • Marvel Legends Captain America by Shinobitron: This may be a simple kitbash using parts from the original Toy Biz Captain America with a more recent Cap re-release from Hasbro, but the clean paint job makes it exceptional. I am usually not a fan of that Hasbro body without the vest (see the original ML Drax) but with the Toy Biz head and gloves, it works well proportionally. Ends Sunday, May 24 at 7:57PM PST.
  • Marvel Legends Hulkbuster Iron Man by wilestbilame: The onslaught of Hulkbuster repaints using the Titan Heroes version has begun. This one is the first I’ve seen that shows another ML Iron Man (in this case Extremis) for scale – Hulkbuster is huge! Ends today at 8:14PM PST.
    Here’s another ML Hulkbuster Iron Man that ends Thursday, May 21 at 5:17PM PST.
  • Marvel Legends Netflix Daredevil (red suit) by JLA: We’ve seen a few customs of the black suit (which I ended up preferring over this one), and now customizers have come up with recipes for the Gladiator-built suit revealed in the Netflix season 1 finale. Ends Wednesday, May 20 at 10:15PM PST.
    Here’s another Netflix Daredevil that ends Thursday, May 21 at 4:56AM PST.

In AFP’s Border Patrol, we scour active eBay auctions for customized action figures that you won’t want to let slip by!

Watch the Sesame Street Aveggies: Age of Bon Bon Parody

Sesame Street Parody - Aveggies - Age of Bon Bon

The Aveggies: Age of Bon Bon is the latest Sesame Street Parody, having already spoofed Breaking Bad, Star Wars and Game of Thrones flawlessly. This one is equally hilarious essentially because it shows how questionable the powers of the Avengers err the Aveggies actually are. And Bon Bon/Ultron turning all vegetables to Cookies & Cream just goes to show you how being bad can be pretty sweet, pun intended.

Watch till the end, cuz a Hulked out Cookie Monster is worth the whole five minutes of this video, and maybe the 2 plus hours I endured seeing Avengers 2… well, maybe not.

Hot Toys Reveals Avengers: Age of Ultron Vision

Hot Toys Avengers Age of Ultron Vision 01

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?

You can pre-order the Marvel Vision Marvel Sixth Scale Figure at Sideshow. Next up, Scarlet Witch?
