Are you happy about having another half a year each to pay for these two super-popular Hot Toys Iron Man 1/6 figures? Or are you bummed out that you’re going to have to wait so much longer for them, Marvel fans?
Incredibly disappointed. Not only by yet more delays, but HUGE delays. Hot Toys needs to get their scheduling sh*t together. I’m done pre-ordering. Too disappointing.
Upon seeing the new releases for Sideshow's Premium Format figure and Hot Toys 1/6 scale figures it took all the patience I could muster to not jump on the preorder superhighway. Why? Because as cool as they looked, I still had to find out if was, in fact, a great movie, which would justify the cost and display of said figure(s). I thought GREEN LANTERN was going to be cool, too, but thankfully there were no figures like this up for preorder prior to the film's release or I'd have some hidden shame somewhere in my house (along with all those STAR WARS: EPISODE 1 figures in the crawl space).
Thankfully, I walked out of the theater last night after witnessing the exhausting awesomeness that is MAN OF STEEL and could fully justify preordering this new MAN OF STEEL Premium Format Figure from Sideshow (just don't tell my wife), which I think is the most impressive of the two. Make no mistake, Sideshow's Premium Format Figure's aren't "figures" in the traditional sense. They're basically clothed statues, which makes them that much cooler. Hot Toys 1/6 scale figures are nothing short of great as well, but are much more poseable and articulated, so if you like to customize your displays, the Hot Toys version may be for you. Seriously, if you've never owned a Hot Toys figure from any number of their properties, now's a good time to remedy that. They are amazing.
