Hot Toys Hulkbuster Sixth Scale Figure is the ‘Ultimate’ Hulkbuster
Now that we are finally into March, that means we only have a couple more months to go until Avengers: Age of Ultron hits the big screen on May 1, 2015. We have known for quite some time about Hot Toys’ ambitious Age of Ultron sixth scale line up, and today they have fully revealed what many could consider the star of it all – the Hot Toys Hulkbuster sixth scale figure.
Hulkbuster made an appearance in one of the film’s trailers, and since then fans have been filled full of excitement. That unforgettable battle with Hulk has pushed the popularity of this new Iron Man machine to a new level, and the film hasn’t even launched yet!
The movie-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of Hulkbuster in Avengers: Age of Ultron. This colossal figure stands approximately 55 cm (21 inches) tall, featuring a Mark XLIII bust inside the Hulkbuster with LED light-up eyes and arc reactor on chest. The metallic red, gold and silver armor with weathering effect, and over 16 LED light-up areas located in the eyes, chest, repulsor palms, back, and legs.
This. Guy. Is. Huge.
Measuring in at 21 inches, you are going to have to make some serious room if you want to add this guy to your collection. That humongous size is probably going to justify the 5,100HKD (about $660 USD) price tag too.
In order to recreate the Hulk vs. Hulkbuster battle that takes place in the film, you are going to have to drop a cool $1k to get this figure and the already announced Hulk, and you are going to need even more if you want all 10 AOU figures Hot Toys has planned.
Kotobukiya, Funko, Hasbro, and Bandai‘s Hulbuster have nothing on Hot Toys’ version. This is the ultimate Hulkbuster figure.
He’s expected to start shipping in Q2 2016. Pre-orders haven’t quite popped up in North America, but if you keep your eyes on this page then you should have a good chance at getting one of your own.
UPDATE: Pre-orders are now available directly here.
Price is not $660 its $824.99
Thanks for the comment. The figure is $660 in Asia and this article was written before Sideshow applied their ridiculous North American markup.
WTF – seriously? I just got sick . I already preordered one piece.
There has to be way to align SSC – even with the shipping costs to them it wouldn’t cost them more than $30 per piece.
They will ship them ocean freight – a 20 foot container from China to estimated price (San Fransisco, USA): $2,560 – $2,820. If they fit 100 units which is a small load their cost is $30 aprox. We know that they will ship way more than 100 units.
Do you have an Asian contact we can buy from?
I am in Mexico City – I ll have to reship this again to me. ;0(
I know right! I’m completely mad about that. What gives Sideshow the right to mark the product up $175 just because they are the “exclusive” North American distributor?
I was thinking about the shipping containers earlier. They probably fit more than 100 per container, those things are huge.
I do not have an Asian contact. Sideshow is actually cracking down on people who are buying from outside of their distribution zone. So if you live in America, you can only buy from Sideshow or the retailers they distribute to. Pretty lame, but I guess business is business.
very good posts btw!
Thanks! I really appreciate your feedback.
