It should be no secret that Hot Toys loves their Marvel collectibles. This was very evident over the past year while Hot Toys was on the quest to make all of the Iron Man armors that were featured throughout Iron Man 3. The New Year, 2015, also looks to be another Marvel year (at least by the looks of it right now) since Hot Toys has just announced they will be making 10 Avengers: Age of Ultron sixth scale figures!
The announcement came in the form of a teaser image, which basically shows all of the 12-inch action figure bases lined up, sans figures. Some people probably don’t like this kind of teaser since it doesn’t show any part of the figures, but I don’t mind a teaser like this at this point, since not much about the movie has been made available.
In the image above, the action figure bases read as follows from the back:
- Scarlet Witch
- Iron Man
- Captain America
- Black Widow
… And that list isn’t even counting the insanely anticipated Hot Toys Hulkbuster (will NOT be diecast). So that actually makes 11.
I thought it might be a little bit fun to try to guess the Hot Toys prices, then when they are actually “officially” announced we can reference this page and the comments section to see who was the closest. I have already left my comment below with my estimates.
I was able to pick up all of the already released Avengers line from the first movie and I can’t quite decide if I need to rebuy all of the characters I already have. The costumes the characters are wearing are different (see figures revealed at Toy Soul 2014), but I don’t major differences (like a complete color change, etc.) that warrants spending $1,000+ so I can have two versions. Though with that being said, I’ll probably buy them all because I’m addicted and can’t resist.
I’m really curious to know what everyone else is doing. Are you going to be buying all of the figures you already have? Are you just going to pick and choose what you like? Or are you only going to buy the new characters?
Let me know in the comments below with your price estimate!
