Found this whilst snooping around the Asian boards today...

Can't read anything, but that certainly looks like a Hot Toys GR to me! I'll buy one for sure. Maybe they'll do his bike too?

Hah! Awesome. It would be cool to match up Ghost Rider with Blade and Wolverine for a dope group shot.

Ooo... and with the way they did Wesker, maybe we'll get a light up head this time!!

That might be weird; but Hot Toys never disappoints so if they do decide to make him light up; I'll bet it will rock.

I hope it is true. I want Spiderman, X-Men and Blade but I don't mind obscure characters from other Marvel films such as: Ghost Rider, Punisher, Daredevil , FF and Elektra either. Granted FF and Elektra figs would need to be really awesome to warrant a purchase but I am open for HT to try.

Interesting stuff...

No, no, no! Can't you see the stand? That's the Iron Man MKVIII 'Ghost Rider' version!!!

Yeah, that's going to be hard for me to pass up. I still think that the first 25 issues of the Danny Ketch GR are some of the better comics Marvel has done in the past 25 years.

This definitely could be an amazing figure. I'm not a huge fan of the post-1970s Ghost Rider designs, so I'm not sure I would be willing to spend $150 on him, but this would definitely look great posed with Blade.

I am not a fan of the film (Cage :monkey4) but I love Marvel and I watch all their films (even the bad ones). A movie version with bike would be too cool.

Whatever you think of the movie, though, the GR design in itself is pretty faithful to the comics and looks pretty bad-ass, IMO.

Interesting!!
I always thought Medi's was a really cool piece (despite the zipper) so I'm curious to see what HT can do with it!!

I haven't had many issues with the movie characters design (even in bad films) it is either a weak story or bad acting that killed the flicks.

I would like a movie masterpiece Daredevil and Punisher too even those movies were so-so the character design was good. I am on board for most things Marvel :winner

This has to have a light-up function. Please.

I don't know. That could work, but it could come off looking a bit cheap, particularly when it wasn't turned on. Would be nice if they provide the option of translucent, light-up flame hair and solid, painted flame hair.

The light-up gimmick is nifty for figures like the Alien guys and Iron Man, but most of the time they are turned off, and their look doesn't suffer for it. Ghost Rider very possibly would.

On second thought, you're probably right. But I think it could work. Sideshow has done a stand-up job with their GR collectibles. If Hot Toys could follow suit with the sculpt and paint work, then I don't think the need for lights would be necessary.

Though, if they do something similar to this legendary scale bust, I wouldn't be against it:

This was first discovered three months ago...someone on the DC board found apic from inside HT's office.

I'd most certainly pass on Ghost Rider. I was never into him and for me he just doesn't appear to 'fit' with other Marvel characters and their universes in the eyes of someone like me.

Spiderman, some of the X-men, Daredevil and Hulk for me. I'm kinda considering Blade but even hes a stretch. I don't see vampires existing in the other universes. Probably stupid I know.

I think his look is a bit more gritty and dark than most of the Marvel U characters. That's why I like his blue suit from the 70s much more personally. He fits better with the spandex wearing crew.

Ewwww. HT can disregard a 'light up' feature if this is how it looks.

That would be sweet. I can't wait to pre-order the Ghost Rider, the bike would just be an extra added bonus.

Can't believe this many people seem against GR. In my opinion, he's ALWAYS fit in with the Marvel Universe.

Doctor Strange, Brother Voodoo, Mephisto, Shang-Chi, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, are some of the guys I've always found myself enjoying in GR stories.

Now granted, his older stuff doesn't really stand the test of time, but his more recent stuff by Jason Aaron was top notch!
