I just recently completed Hot Toys’ “The Avengers” figure line and decided to take some quick snapshots of all the figures I acquired so far. All of the figures are downright awesome both in likeness, sculpt, and overall quality and fortunately, I never encountered a single issue or defect when I first got each one of them (My very first issue with Hot Toys was with my defective Mark 2 Armor Unleashed figure – which they replaced with a new one). I actually had a hard time trying to secure all of the characters because of the series’ very high demand.
Most hobby shops here in the Philippines prioritizes collectors that paid in full before the figures are even released to the public. I had to basically resort to the “grey” market just to secure all of them. The most problematic character for me to secure was Thor but I luckily managed to find someone who can sell it to me with “close to SRP” price. After years of waiting, I finally received the last piece of the puzzle last September – The Iron Man Mark VII figure. I tell you, they ALL look AWESOME and they’re one of the attention grabbers in my entire figure collection.
