While Hot Toys unveiled a slew of upcoming figures at San Diego Comic-Con, they still had some in the tank for Animation-Comic-Game Hong Kong 2013 this past weekend.
- The Crow – Brandon Lee as Eric Draven – believe it or not, I’ve never seen the movie – should I? Having only seen screen caps of the movie, it’s hard for me to judge how good the likeness is. What’s the consensus here?
- Cloud from The Storm Riders – likewise for this figure, I’ve never read the manga, which (according to my quick internet search) has been running since 1989. Wow. For fans, I hope that Hot Toys will get around to releasing Wind, the other main character from the story. Not sure if this one will get a U.S. release.
- Tony Stark in his mechanic gear from Iron Man 3 – with the hoodie and sunglasses I’ll think of this as the Unabomber Tony. It’s only fair that if Hot Toys is going to make half a dozen or so Iron Man armors that got a few seconds of screen time that they make the outfit that we see Tony Stark in for most of the movie. But it does beg the question – if he could call all those armors for the final fight, why didn’t he call them sooner?
I haven’t checked for pre-orders yet, but I’d check out Sideshow first since they’re the U.S. distributor, especially if you’re looking for the exclusive items, which both the Crow (weather vane) and Tony (homemade wrist repulsor) have.
