Latest Hot Toys Avengers is a Vision of greatness

Yeah, that was bad, I apologize.  But it’s true.

Paul Bettany’s role as Vision in the new Avengers: Age of Ultron movie was a thing of beauty, evoking just the right mixture of compassion and bad-assery, and now you can own the Vision in 12″ form.

Hot Toys revealed the first images this morning, and now Sideshow Collectibles has him up for pre-order, and I have to say, as one expects these days from Hot Toys, he looks spectacular.  Look, he even comes with his own mini-Mjolnir!

Check out the pre-order right here, and take a peek at the images below.

While this particular entry into the Age of Ultron toy collection isn’t something I’m tempted to pick up, I can’t argue with the craftsmanship here. The sculpting on the various cybernetic parts, as well as the exposed machinery and wiring? Pretty astounding looking stuff.

Hot Toys has released the official images of this Ultron Mark I and yes it is a thing of beauty, even if I prefer the more finished version.

Meet Quicksilver and the Scarlett Witch from Avengers: Age of Ultron

Thanks to Marvel Studios and the wonders of the Avengers initiative, people everywhere now consider Iron Man, Thor, and Loki household names. However, two new additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch are relative unknowns.

A featurette on YouTube today hopes to change that, focusing on the ‘Super Siblings’ of the Avengers sequel. Check it out below.

Meanwhile, over on Buzzfeed.com, a long form article outlining the history of the two characters, plus a look at their role in the film can help shed some light on these two characters as well.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Hawkeye Pre-Order is LIVE

Don’t miss the boat! The first Avengers Hawkeye sold out quick and now goes for some insane amount on the secondary market. This update looks absolutely amazing and is up for pre-order on Sideshow Collectibles’ website NOW.

Check out the link below and go get ‘im! I know I will…

Avengers: Age of Ultron Hawkeye by Hot Toys really hits the mark

Hot Toys first came on my radar during the first Avengers film and I was blown away by the first Hawkeye they developed. It was one of the finest action figures I’d seen, but I felt the price tag was just way out of reach.

Here we are a couple of years later, and an ongoing dry spell for G.I. Joe, and suddenly perhaps I can find a way to afford this… I certainly hope so, Jeremy Renner just seems to be calling to me.

Hot Toys has revealed their impressive outing for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and considering the first version of this character now fetches around six hundred bucks on the secondary market, I’ll have to be satisfied with this one as a member of my Avengers team.

I think I can learn to live with it. Check out a small gallery of images below, and be ready for an incoming pre-order!

It already seemed like a logistical impossibility to coordinate so many different high profile characters in the first Avengers film, but Joss Whedon handled it with grace, so now we’ve got even more characters added to the mix for the sequel.  Not only Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver, but the Vision as well.  Check out all of the posters revealed thus far below, and Avengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1st.
