Jedd-the-Jedi was onsite for us today at the Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention’s Press Preview Day, and has sent us some pics!
These are the photos from the press preview today. Most of them are of the three Hot Toys figures. There’s a photo of the exclusive Thundercats Lion-O (Mumm Ra version) as well, and of ZC World’s Vinyl Collectible Astro Boy. Today’s line-up of toys and collectibles is just a teeny tiny sampling of what will be on the show floor when the convention proper takes place over the weekend.
Comic book artist Leinil Yu happens to be a big fan of Hot Toys figures, the first one he bought being an Iron Man 2 War Machine. He told me that he’s thinking of using them as reference material, drawing portraits based on the figures, and was surprised at how articulated the Sucker Punch Baby Doll figure was – you can cock the hip!
Stay tuned for updates from Jedd at STGCC over the next few days.

I was watching Captain America: The First Avenger on Netflix last night, and was reminded during Cap’s awesome rescue of the Howling Commandos and the survivors of the 107th that the Hot Toys “Toy Fairs Exclusives” of Rescue Cap, SWAT team Jim Gordon and Angelica from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise that they announced during San Diego Comic-Con were now all available for order in the US through Sideshow Toys.
The only downside is that now I have that USO song stuck in my head. Maybe an Iron Man movie can fix that. 🙂
It’s the ten year anniversary of Hot Toys, and to celebrate they held a celebration event in Tokyo over the past couple of days, including having a few exclusives for sale. I would have loved to go, but did the next best thing – find pics of the event online!

- Captain America: The First Avenger
- Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides
- Metal Gear Solid
- Sucker Punch

Right Actor. Wrong Figure.
If you are setting up recreations of movies or TV shows with your action figures and you don’t quite have all of the actors in the scene, you can always substitute those actor’s action figures from appearances in other things.
