Hot Toys previews Toy Fairs Exclusives

by Greg Belfrage

I hate to keep promoting Hot Toys, but they've got some incredibly realistic products under development!

Hot Toys has just released previews of their 2013 Toy Fairs Exclusives for this year and the sculpting on these new 1/6 scale pieces is absolutely sensational!

First up is Hot Toys' Star Spangled Man version of the Captain America Collectible Figurine!  This collectible is based on the likeness of Chris Evans in the Star Spangled Man costume from "Captain America: The First Avenger". It features a newly developed head sculpt, highly detailed costume, weapons and accessories.

Hot Toys offers a level of sculpting that you just don't see in most toy figurines.  Here's more incredible work from Hot Toys... the Joe Colton Collectible Figure from G.I. Joe!  

"We know fans have been waiting for a collectible figure featuring the acclaimed Hollywood movie star Bruce Willis’ likeness and we are happy to let you all know that the collectible figure based on Joe Colton from G.I. Joe Retaliation is finally here," says Hot Toys' Facebook page  

"Based on the icon brand from Hasbro, the movie-accurate Joe Colton collectible figure features a highly detailed head sculpt, tailored costume, weapons and accessories."

And just when you thought there were no more Superman toys worth buying... Hot Toys unveils the evil version of the boy in blue from "Superman III"!  This figure is sculpted on the likeness of Christopher Reeve from the classic junkyard battle between Clark Kent and Superman!

Hot Toys says, "Paying tribute to Christopher Reeve, we are pleased to support the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation and their mission to advance research into spinal cord injury and improve quality of life for people living with paralysis."
