====================================Yes, that is right folks. Hot Toys has the license to the Marvel Universe. And the pic above is the announcement teaser from HT’s official catalog.
For those that cannot read Japanese, here’s what it say:
Left side: Movie Masterpiece. Starting soon.
Right: Blade trilogy, X-Men trilogy, Spider-Man trilogy, & more…
Movie Masterpiece, not comic versions. This means, those that have longed for a good Spidey 1/6th figure, you’re about to get one. And it’s the trilogy they’re doing which means you will get Spidey, Green Goblin, Doc Ock, Venom, and Sandman to say the least!
This also means you ‘ll probably be able to get every X-Men character in the movies to date since HT is also doing the trilogy series for X-Men. Then Blade! Man, bankruptcy will surely be on the rise this year…
Spiderman and X-men, talk about a massive churning of figures. Though i understand the necessity for Hot Toys to hit the markets in storm and full force, reason being the rise in competitors, such as Brothers Production, DID, Enterbay making equal if not better products and licences that Hot Toys hasn't acquired. Hence this sudden upsurge in licences are to cement its crown position as 1/6th scale toy makers...
though its gonna take a toll on us collectors, nevertheless, i'm still excited.
Black costumed spidey and the classic red/blue, and most of all, HANNIBAL KING played by ryan reynolds! boy i'd love to get my hands on his headsculpt! possible Deadpool kitbash! Though blade himself doesn't quite interest me.
