Hot Toys are a production house for designing and manufacturing very detailed collectibles for the worldwide market. The company started making U.S military and special-forces action figures in 2000 but then transitioned to more popular media figures. These figures were usually from famous movies or TV series. They have surely made thousands of figures under the Movie Masterpiece Series brand, but today we will be focusing on the most popular Hot Toys ever made.
We made a list of what we think are some of the best and most popular action figures from Hot Toys.
1. Ripley on a power loader
This is an older figure and “vehicle” from an even older movie (Alien). This one goes on the list because this figure and movie are timeless. The details on the power loader are amazing and it looks exactly like the one in the movie. However, at the time, Hot Toys lacked the ability to make realistic head sculpts, which is why on this piece, Ripley’s head doesn’t look quite as good.
This Robocop MMS202 figure depicts the armor very sharp and detailed. The face sculpting feels like very accurate work and looks great. You can even have his holster open on his leg armor. This figure also comes with a remote control which makes him say quotes from the Robocop movie.
3. Iron Man Mark 42
Hot Toys has made a lot of Iron Man figures, but we decided that the Mark 42 looks the best. It comes with a lot of alternate armor options and you can have the visor opened or closed. The best part of Mark 42 is that there are LEDs on his palms, chest, and eyes. If you are looking to buy popular Hot Toys action figures like this one, then we recommend you check out toyorigin.com.
4. Selena Kyle / Catwoman
This figure is based on Catwoman from the Dark Knight series. It is very detailed and you can clearly see Anne Hathaway’s face. They have also used fake hair to make her hairstyle look more realistic.
5. Wolverine Origins
Wolverine is one of the most famous Super Heroes and Hugh Jackman could possibly be the most accurate depiction of how Wolverine should look like. The head sculpt is not that great, but it certainly isn’t bad. The jacket has been crafted to show an amazing number of details and Wolverine’s claws look awesome.
6. Star Wars Han Solo
Hans Solo from one of the most legendary Sci-Fi movies Star Wars. Everyone can recognize this character since the details on this figure are so well-made. You can discern from the face that it is indeed Harrison Ford. This time Hot Toys have done an amazing job creating an accurate depiction of a character’s face and head.
7. King Leonidas
This is a very sought-out figure since it is hard to find. King Leonidas might cost you up to 400 dollars which is double what the original price was. This figure captures King Leonidas’ face and his body very accurately.
8. Dark Knight
A Hot Toys action figures list will never be complete without Batman. Based on Christian Bale’s Batman from the Dark Knight series. This is the first ¼ scale figure from Hot Toys and this bigger size offers much more texture than all the other small size. You can really see the details on Batman’s weapons and armor.
