I'm not sure how many of you have ever seen Marlon Brando in the 1953 film The Wild One, but Hot Toys is releasing a 1/6 scale figure based on the Brando character.  While Hot Toys does not state anything about the film (they're releasing it as a Brando-1953 figure), it's obvious by the attire that it's his rebel biker character - Johnny Strabler.

Jango Fett Chubby

Who wouldn't want a Jumbo Chubby?  At over 8.5" in height, this Jango Fett Chubby is definitely large.  (I can't type this with a straight face)  Hot Toys will be releasing the above Star Wars figure in the 2nd quarter of 2008.  It will have a removable helmet as well as magnetic feet.

Hot Toys released photos of their Star Wars Chubby Seres 2.  (Why do I always chuckle when I read chubby?)  Each of the Star Wars
Chubby consists of 3 different sizes of doll (like nesting dolls). Each size represents a
different stage of the particular character throughout the saga.  The characters in Series 2 include: Stormtrooper/Clone Troopers, Jango Fett/Boba Fett, Luke Skywalker, Starfighter Pilots, Princess Leia and Ewoks.

REVIEW: Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End Cosbabies

Img_3566

Background

Hot Toys took the Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End license and produced a 1/6 scale line as well as their Cosbaby mini line.  If you’re not familiar with the 3” tall Cosbabies, they could be lumped into the “block figure” genre of designer toys.  Although, the only thing that is blocky is the torso.

The Pirates lineup includes 5 different figures of 4 different characters: Jack Sparrow (2 different outfits), Will Turner, Sao Feng and Davy Jones.  And Sideshow is distributing the line in the United States.

Packaging

While it might appear that the line is blind boxed, it's not.  Each figure is packaged in the same windowless mini box, but there is a small square beside each character’s photo.  Look for the check mark, and you'll know which figure you’re getting.

Everybody Needs To Know It’s The Year Of The Mouse

11inchesminnie_01

Boy...that title will make absolutely no sense to anyone who never heard Year of the Rat by Badly Drawn Boy.  Anyway.  Hot Toys is celebrating the Year of the Mouse by releasing 11" tall Mickey and Minnie Mouse collectible figures.  They are all decked out in traditional Chinese Emperor and Empress garb.

Since I don't celebrate Chinese New Year, these figures don't do much for me.  But I can see how they will be big with those who do...as well as Mickey and/or Minnie Mouse collectors.

Hot Toys’ PMC Operator

With all of the controversy surrounding Blackwater, who wouldn't want to pick up a Private Military Contractor 1/6 scale figure?  Hot Toys has released info on their limited edition (1,000 total pieces) 12" tall PMC Operator figure.  As with most Hot Toys' products...there are way too many accessories to list.  I'd probably aggravate the old carpel tunnel syndrome.
