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.

Hot Toys Captain America, Jim Gordon, and Angelica Exclusives Available for Pre-Order

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. 🙂

Such as:
