San Diego Comic-Con International is a multigenre entertainment and comic convention held annually in San Diego, California. It was founded as the Golden State Comic Book Convention in 1970 by a group of San Diegans, which included Shel Dorf, Richard Alf, Ken Krueger and Mike Towry; later, it was called the "San Diego Comic Book Convention". The name, as given on its website, is Comic-Con International: San Diego; but it is commonly known simply as Comic-Con or the San Diego Comic-Con or "SDCC". It is the event where many things get previewed and seen for the first time and this year is no exception.

I think Arkham Batman is a miss for me, maybe it's the way they posed it. But, those DKR and Guardians of the Galaxy figures are amazing! I don't think they captured Sigourney's likeness that well either.
Hmmm, what does everyone think about rooted hair?

Jon Loh said...

Looking at the offerings by Hot Toys, one can guess their marketing strategies and their target audience is definitely the fan boys of the 80s who has the spending power. Well, I may well be just one fan boy who finds it hard to resist the temptation.

Bill Kern said...

Iron Man is inescapable, huh? Quick question, I don't have any Iron Man's so do you think this version is worth getting?

And I want that DeLorean. Like. Yesterday!

Sigourney looks sweet and I hope this means some more Colonial Marines. Oh that would make me so happy!

tofanpw said...

I wonder how many of these figures hot toys will actually release?

Piratestan said...

That Arkham Batman looks like another "looks swell but can't move much because of the outfit" figures. Honestly, if I wanted a statue, I'd buy a statue!

That Ripley head is incredible, especially the hair.

It's alot to take in... Keep in mind there's still figures like X-Men's First Class Professor X that still hasn't seen the light of day, so Protoypes aren't necessarily previews. On THAT note why even make another Mark iii or Aliens Power Loader or Keaton Batman?! Give us The Matrix, Major Star Wars Characters like Count Dooku, Obi Wan or HELLO Hans Solo! But everything looks terrific except that Butt Ugly Ironman Suit BONES- $285?= Money Saved!!

humanbeingill said...

Oh Yeah, where's Tim Burton's Devito Penguin and Phifer Catwoman?! I NEEEED those!

I used to collect tons of hot toys figures way back in 2008 till late last year. With so many new figures coming out and teased it was so tempting and addictive to try and get them all but after last year i realized its not worth it...

Having a huge collection means squat when they're only valued to you. Others sees it as a waste of money and I also came around that same thought...

I've probably invested more than 6000usd collecting these figures and the worse of them are the constant iron man figures that I was tempted to collect.

I'm going to have a family soon and so I have to give up on this expensive hobby. Hope others invested wisely when it comes to these expensive figures.
