Great news, but I'm not a fan of "impersonal" figures, you need to have duplicates for it to make sense, and I won't be able to buy more than one of these in case I decide to add it to the collection. I've already committed to the whole team plus Loki and I'll PO Coulson without hesitation, but I'm not sure about this. Looking awesome though.

Not me. I'm all about the Cap figure. And Black Widow. And Loki. And Thor. And even Hawkeye and Nick Fury. But this and Coulson? Nah.

Not only that, but I'd really love the machine that creates the portal that the Chitauri enter from. Okay, I know it probably won't happen, but it would be awesome. Also, I like how the noted it as a Footsoldier, I wonder if they'll eventually do a second, higher ranking Chitauri.

Yeah, I raised an eyebrow when HT simply labeled Final Battle Jake as "Jake Sully." Seemed to indicate he was the only Jake they'd ever make.

But Footsoldier Chitauri? Sweetness. Bring on Pilot Chitauri and Leader Chitauri! :rock

Hell "You Know Who" from the End Credits can technically be made because he was in the movie. Bring him on!

Exactly! Hot Toys drops hints, imo. When they included the Chitauri gun with Cap I figured they were probably making a Chitauri, but including the Chitauri staff with Black Widow confirmed it in my mind. I hope we at least get the Pilot Chitauri and chariot. I mean, Avengers is arguably is as big as Batman, so why can't we get at least one vehicle? A Leader Chitauri would really round things out.

Sideshow, I'm waiting for that 1/6 Helicarrier environment and 1/6 New York City Street environment. lol.

No, I'd argue Batman does. The Avengers, as a single movie, well, yeah, you're right. Overall though, I think Batman is still Hot Toys biggest property, and they put most of their effort into it seems. Then Avengers, followed by other Marvel movies, then everything else.

LOL, with Coulson and this announcement along with potentially Maria Hill - all of the figures from this first Avengers movie won't be completely released and in your hands until the THIRD Avengers movie is released. Way to overpromise HT. Any sign of the light-cycle from Tron or a single teaser of X-Men FC? Just fess up and admit that it's going to be Avengers and TDKR 1/6 AND 1/4 for the next 3 years. Just cancel Prometheus, X-Men FC, future Star Wars figures and anything outside Avengers and Batman - because before we even have the Avengers Hulk in our hands - you'll be teasing and revealing Mk VIII and IX from Iron Man 3.

:goodpost:

This and coldson are basically taking away from other lines, no matter how much people like these, they in no way should take the place of a main character of another license, and that is whats happening since those main characters haven't been shown made but these have.

Think of a scale, Avengers have all the figures and others have none, that's not a good balance. I'm not saying it should be the other way with Avengers getting none, but these are two to far when others haven't got more than two figures in total, and not even the main characters at that.

They seem to have missed the boat on X-Men: First Class. They'd be easy passes for me, character design not interesting or iconic enough and the continuity between it and the other movies hurts my head.
As far as the Chitauri goes, I'm shocked and pleasantly surprised. I thought we'd get Hammer Drones for certain and when they didn't materialize I figured they wouldn't go for cannon fodder figures. I do wonder if a 1:6 Chitauri chariot is in the works.

Honestly the Chitauri and Coulson announcements are some of the most exciting HT announcements EVER, not because those two random figures are particularly awesome but rather the new precedent that HT is setting for line depth and figure obscurity that may well carry over into any other given line.

People should be happy that they are moving past "one and done" or "two and done" per license regardless of whether or not Avengers is your specific cup of tea.

I think the bigger point is that HT is getting in the practice of announcing 100 figures throughout the year and then releasing 5 at the end of the year in December... 3 of which were announced the year before.

This makes no sense. Here are all the figures released this year ( in hand )

Avengers Mark VI
Nick Fury
Red Skull
Rescue Cap
Noland



Here are the figures that will most likely be in hand before the years end.

Avengers Captain America
Avengers Thor
Avengers Black Widow
Hawkeye
Iron Monger
Loki
Swat Lt Gordon
Amazing Spiderman

Thats a total of 13 and I know I am missing a few!

Sorry I used exaggeration to make my point... I won't make that mistake again(yes I will). But of all the figures you said were released and will be(let me correct that)... we THINK will be released by year's end - how many announcements were made last year? How many of the figures in your "to be released by year's end" list will really be released by then? If you think all, then

http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm23/socom75/ymbnh1.jpg

You know what, I don't really mind that they're releasing this figure and other ancillary characters from Avengers. I loved the movie. It's really cool that they're investing so much in the line. But, if you guys are happy with announcement after announcement, teaser after teaser, reveal after reveal and still not having anything in your hands until a year or more later, then more power to you. I don't agree with anyone putting their favorite licenses over anyone else's, but I also don't agree with HT overpromising and all of us getting stuck with coming here and overanalyzing the teaser and reveal pics to death.

And please don't beat me over the head with the fact that you've got over a thousand more posts than me and I JOKINGLY accused you of being new here... the point is it's naive to think HT will release everything they said they would by the end of the year. They certainly don't have the track record to back up a claim like that.

I for one wasn't expecting Gordon, Coulson, Chitauri, AT ALL. And I wasn't sure about Rescue Cap and USO Cap. And Know what else they'll throw at us. I love it all.

Those figures you mentioned are all from the same two franchises, if they do something other than those two then that'd be a geniune surprise but more from the same ones isn't a surprise in my book. These weren't predictable but it was predictable there'd be more from Avengers and Batman, i just thought they'd finally show some others first.

A precedent is just that, a precedent. Not a guarantee that EVERY license will be treated like Avengers.

A HT license announcement used to mean one or two main characters and that's it. Then Iron Man changed it to one to ten of the same main character. Now Avengers is one to ten DIFFERENT main characters PLUS a couple fringe/troop building characters.

The point is while it still may be a rare occurence there is now the established possibility that HT can treat any such line this way in the future if they so choose.

Star Wars anyone?

You think the way you want to, and I will do the same. But you are also being presumptuous in thinking they will NOT come out. So we are both potentially right or wrong. And being accused of being new here is meaningless. These are toys. Its suppose to be fun.

I'm happy for ya, i just see these as getting in the way of the ones i want. I figured once Hulk and Iron Man were out of the way i'd finally be getting ones i've been waiting since before they even announced Avengers, and then these come along and scupper that little sliver of hope we have left.

These figures are great for Avengers fans, but a slap in the face for fans of other licenses who haven't even got three figures or any figures yet.

Not me. I'm all about the Cap figure. And Black Widow. And Loki. And Thor. And even Hawkeye and Nick Fury. But this and Coulson? Nah.

Now, if the Chitauri were actually memorable or had a better design I might be in for one. But since they were neither...

The title says it all: FOOT SOLDIER. A generic Chitauri soldier. People want to build battle dioramas, and this is a great thing to facilitate that.

This character is not supposed to dazzle you with his personality, we dont know him, he's an alien grunt here to kick some @ss. He goes with every last figure in the Avengers lineup and in my opinion this is a smart move on HT's part. They're maximizing profits on this line, and thats what companies do.

I'm frankly thrilled to see more from this movie that isnt IRON MAN MARK XVIILCIIII. 'Cause Tony, he's an important guy but we have enough Iron Men already, you know?

This and coldson are basically taking away from other lines, no matter how much people like these, they in no way should take the place of a main character of another license, and that is whats happening since those main characters haven't been shown made but these have.

Think of a scale, Avengers have all the figures and others have none, that's not a good balance. I'm not saying it should be the other way with Avengers getting none, but these are two to far when others haven't got more than two figures in total, and not even the main characters at that.

Thats just a raw sculpture they're showing off. They haven't articulated it yet. I imagine they'll make it very much like the Hulk and their other muscle bodied figures.

But yeah, I really hope HT realizes they can make much MORE money if they charge much LESS for these. They are meant for army building and to do that, they need to be reasonably priced. People will buy a lot more than they would if they were $200+ each. But I have a feeling HT won't see the logic. I mean Bane is $195 and comes with less than Fury.

Just wait for these to go up for Pre-order. For now we don't know with any certainty what the price will be.

Coulson I could see going for lower than normal given that he's really just a guy in a suit. The footsoldier though looks like a brand new body with some intricate detailing. I don't expect it to be very cheap.

What the footsoldier does have going for it in my opinion is visual appeal. It's different and it'll probably look amazing even though it isn't a main character.

So keep the price low, and make the money back in volume of sales. If the idea is that these are supposed to be 'army builders' (a tricky enough proposition at this scale unless you have endless space available), you don't charge an arm and a leg for 'em, regardless of RnD.

Anyone buying Coulson almost certainly bought 3 Avengers anyway. Even at $140 they would make more profit of him as a separate figure.

One of the most exciting aspects of this figure IMO is that they will be one of the few that were actually introduced in The Avengers.

http://guyism.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/chitauri-aliens-avengers.jpg

Cap, Thor, Coulson, Loki, and the rest are technically characters from previous movies just with new makeovers. Very few "new" characters. Basically just the Chitauri, Agent Hill, and that guy who appears after the credits.

anyone else think their making these just so they can have a sweet diorama at Ami con? :lol and then decided we sell them anyway. Whatever made them do it i'm thankful. I will get 3 if their standard price, if their cheaper i will probably get 5

ah right.

I'm hoping the will be two different headsculpts (masked and unmasked) and some different weapons so i can have some variation between my 3 - 5. And if price is decent i may end up getting 7 to have the mother of all HT fight scenes.

I've been waiting for HT to do a line like Avengers for a long time, now i'm gonna make the most of it.


All we'd need now to fully complete this line imo is these two (and maybe Maria Hill):

This is gonna be the biggest movie franchise by far when Marvel is done with it. It's already at 6 films and that's only phase one. It deserves to get as much merchandise as possible because it's gonna have more fans than pretty much anyother film franchise.

Hot Toys will milk this franchise. And most of us will thank them for it. I know for sure that i will.

We know we'll get Thanos eventually. If Hot Toys is willing to do Iron Monger, I'd bet Thanos is a given. Plus he'll be in more than one movie probably (hopefully). The Chitauri (?) you posted would be awesome, I mean.. how could would that be!? Though I doubt it, I suppose anything is possible at this point.

Hopefully this will encourage Hot Toys to back track a bit and give us Bucky from TFA and Loki from Thor. Maybe even some other minor (but major to us hardcore fans) characters. I can dream after all. :pray:

The Mk.IV Iron Man figure as well as War Machine have little scrapes and scratches of silver along some of the corners and edges. That little amount of weathering helps give it a "used" look. Both non-battle damaged figures.

One of the best indicators of how massive these things are is the scene where Cap jumps on a car and directs the cops about what to do.
There is one which is standing at the same height as Captain America and Cap is standing on the trunk of a car...

Another scene is where Hulk and Thor are on the back of one of the big creatures and Chitauri are scrambling over Hulk. They are not quite as big as Hulk. But they are close to it. Which means they tower over Thor.
