Hot Toys Announces Inglourious Basterds MMS License

So, I guess Hot Toys posting on its Facebook fan page that they “wanna know who are the REAL BASTERDS” was not a very tough clue to figure out.  As expected, Hot Toys followed that up with the announcement that they’ve acquired the license for Inglourious Basterds, the Quentin Tarantino World War II flick starring Brad Pitt that tore up the box office this past weekend for $37.6MM.

Sure, Hot Toys misspelled the title just like everyone else does, but don’t worry – the lethal offspring of the Pitt / Tarantino pairing is so strong that Inglourious Basterds is still the number one result when you enter “Inglorious” into Google.

A cryptic status update on the Hot Toys Facebook page has many speculating that they’ve got the license for Movie Masterpiece figures from Inglourious Basterds, the Quentin Tarantino World War 2 film starring Brad Pitt.  Inglourious Basterds opens August 21st.

Hot Toys Marvel Movie Masterpiece Logan from X-Men Origins: Wolverine

MarvelousNews.com has posted pictures of the final prototype for the Hot Toys Marvel Movie Masterpiece Logan from X-Men Origins: Wolverine.  I think the head sculpt and paint apps are much improved since the first teaser image we saw back in June.

Hot Toys Secures Marvel Movie Masterpiece License

Gotta how the internet connects and informs people.  This news comes via TheFwoosh.com -> HotToysFan.com -> EddieWong.net.  And what big news it is.

Hot Toys has picked up the movie licensing for Marvel, and from the announcement it appears they’ve got movies past and present.  Want a 1/6 scale Halle Berry Storm to go with the upcoming Hot Toys X-Men Origins Wolvie?  Yeah, ok, I know she wasn’t all that great.  How about a Hannibal King from Blade 3?  Well, it’s all possible now.

Yes, that is right folks. Hot Toys has the license to the Marvel Universe. And the pic above is the announcement teaser from HT’s official catalog.

For those who cannot read Japanese, here’s what the page says:

Left-side: Movie Masterpiece. Starting soon.

Right-side: Blade trilogy, X-Men trilogy, Spider-Man trilogy, & more…

Yes, Movie Masterpiece. Not the comic versions. This means, for those who have longed for a good ‘movie Spidey’ 1/6th figure, you’re about to get one. And it’s the trilogy they’re doing which means you’ll not only get Spidey, but probably also the Green Goblin, Doc Ock, Venom, and Sandman to say the least!
