Might like the film, don't know, but for the movie design (Not HT's fault) it's a PASS, no interest.

Would prefer a Thor that looked like Thor and not an bloke in rubber armour

(cape, gauntlets and Helm look nice though, not liking the blonde beard)

01-27-2011, 09:39 PM
Looks like the actor, and I think the movie looks pretty fun. I think for the fact of having Cap, Iron Man, and Thor on one shelf will be enough to warrant a purchase. Also I wonder how much cooler he'd look with bare arms. Hmm...

plasmid303
01-27-2011, 09:41 PM
The sculpt and outfit both look great. I suppose if I have only one complaint, it would be the re-use of the wolverine/comedian/dastan/royce muscle body for Thor. Thor is going to be the same size as Wolverine, man.

JonWes
01-27-2011, 09:49 PM
I'm really excited about this. It's a great looking figure. The facial likeness is great though I do think a more agressive expression would be appropriate. Looks amazing with the helmet on. He'll definitely be going beside my Cap and IM figures.

I think the costume design is very cool. I have to admit though, I'm a WEE bit worried about how the movie will turn out.

Yeah, I'm thinking this will be akin to Wolverine, price-wise, since he has the muscle body and metal hammer. I think Wolvie went for $170 or so when he was available at retail. Figuring a bit of inflation, this could be even higher. But I expect something around there.

If it wasn't for the Avengers movie coming out this would be a pass. Not a big Thor fan, but because the Avengers movie is coming out that means there will be other figures of the characters. So the complete-ist in me needs to get this to have my Avengers team together. So for now this is a must buy for me.

Not familiar with Hemsworth but when I look at that face, I certainly see Captain Kirk's Dad from the movie so they must have done a great job with the likeness.
Not a fan of the detachable hair for the helmet. makes me think of a wig. and Thor with a wig is just plain wrong.

Hemsworth wore a wig for the film ;)

IMHO something about the overall costume just doesn't feel right. (At least the Capt America costume design look more acceptable)

Maybe cause it makes him too slim? I saw some interview with Chris Hemsworth and he seemed pretty ripped for the film. Hot Toys should have used a better body type, then perhaps he would look a lot better.


I wonder if you can remove the under armor and leave him sleeveless and closer to the Ultimate's Thor look with a beefier body type. As much as id love a full Avengers set, i might have to pass on this unless its dirt cheap.


Beautiful.

Cant wait to see the film so I understand what that background represents ,'cause right now all I see is the Fortress of Solitude.

Its probably a backdrop for the scene with the frost giants of Jotunheim who were the main adversaries of the Asgardians. Yeah im a Marvel geek. LOL

As I've said before I love it. Do wish we had a few more hands and a sculpted head with the helm but overall this figure fraking kicks ass.

01-28-2011, 02:08 AM
Figure looks awesome. Only thing I'm noticing is the length of the wings on the helmet. They seem just a tiny bit too long. I'm still copping so I can display it next to Mark IV and Cap when it releases. Great job by HT!

plasmid303
01-28-2011, 02:28 AM
How did you find that out?

Educated guess based on observation. I'm sure that Thor shares the same body as the 4 aforementioned figures because: the neck is the same, none of the pics show the elbows bent further than 90 degrees, in some of the photos you can see the distinct shape of the arms.

Most importantly, the specs read 'muscular body', which eliminates the possibility of a TT Advanced or TT hybrid. The overall size and bulk of the figure matches that of a figure using the Wolvie body and finally I'm 100% sure HT didn't develop a new muscle body for this figure because they want to maximize profits by re-using a body that is mostly hidden under full-body clothing.

The outfit didn't bother me in the trailer and photos released so far but for some reason it didn't translate well to 1/6.

It's like instead of Thor I see a guy ready to just ride a motorcycle, :lol

Too much black and grey, too thin, helmet too big and the armor looks like an oven mitten.

Therefore, he is an instant buy for me :lol

Can't have the Avengers on my shelf w/o Thor can I :lol

I'll take what I can get :lol

In hand i'll cry how awesome he is :lol

But I need a Thor and this is "just" good enough to warrant a purchase from me.

I think it's his thin look combined with the generic black pants that is bugging me the most :dunno

The HT newsletter hasn't come out in months I think... At least I didn't get it in months. I guess it's because they're having/had problems with their site...

The Sideshow newsletter however comes out every thursday and yes, they do say something about him going up for PO very soon.

I like this over all but the hair is really hurting it for me. It has the same problem the Dastan figure has, hair helmet. Its thinner on the sides which helps but the top and back of the head look really tall like they used one of those stupid hair bump things from the commercials.

I've never complained about an HT body being too thin, but in this case I think I have too. The figure seems thin, not only for the traditional comic Thor but for Chris Hemsworth as well. As someone pointed out, he's going to be the same size as Wolverine...?

Also the helmet, despite the cool design, makes his head look huge in comparison to the body. (I blame this on the body not the helmet.) The best looking pic, IMO, is the one where he's holding his helmet.

Still, it is a good design overall and I feel with the right pose I can make it look good in my detolf. I'm just not sure if I'll be able to pull off a Helmet-on pose that's to my liking. A shame since I was looking forward to posing him with his helmet on.

Hot toys did a great job matching the film costume, but I personally HATE the film design. He looks far too space age for my taste. The helmet is also designed far too large, it needs to be smaller.

I also agree that the hair-helmet sucks and wish he had a better expression.
I won't be picking this one up.

He's Thor, the God of Scrawn and Motorcycle Riding Attire.

His mission is to eradicate all who stand in the way of quality protein drinks and fabrication of black leather pants and boots.

the hairs looks ok. And the helmet looks like it rides a little high on the head. But since I haven't seen any movie shots of Thor with the helmet on, I'll reserve judgment till then.

Maybe it would look better with rooted hair...

I like this over all but the hair is really hurting it for me. It has the same problem the Dastan figure has, hair helmet. Its thinner on the sides which helps but the top and back of the head look really tall like they used one of those stupid hair bump things from the commercials.

Agree! The issue for me is definitely the hair. Although I plan on having the helmet on mine all the time. That's Thor to me. I really want to see some more pics though and see how the helmet looks. If it comes out like Leonidas than I have no issue.


I personally like this "interpretation" of Thor more than the X-costumes we saw in those films.

*snore*

At least they let him keep the cape and helmet!

By the way, these are starting to pop up on eBay for $150, for whatever that's worth.

:exactly: :goodpost:

I wondered how they were going to accomplish Thor and Captain America. I think they pulled Thor off great and I like the costume. The Cap one seems to be coming along nicely as well. I think that's a fine line the creators of these films have to walk. Too much comic influence in there and it seems cheesy or something right off the bat.

I liked the first 2 X-men films but I didn't care for the all black jumpsuits. Took a lot of what I loved about the X-men out of the characters.

They're actually not bad. They do drop the price after actual retail prices are confirmed. And you can cancel a pre-order with no penalties. Often what I'll do is pre-order at BBTS, then when it gets close to release date I research all retailer prices and go with the cheapest. But my initial preorder at BBTS guarantees i will get a figure (should there be a pre-order sell-out) while still giving me the option to cancel for any reason.

The price ~$170 is a tad high, but the body armor (detailing, paint, etc...) must be pushing the price up. Compare it to Mark V and Spidey and you start seeing variations in prices depending on production costs. That being said, if the movie flops, look out below.

Compared to Indiana Jones, this is a decent value.

karamazov80
01-28-2011, 01:17 PM
Yeah, I'm thinking this will be akin to Wolverine, price-wise, since he has the muscle body and metal hammer. I think Wolvie went for $170 or so when he was available at retail. Figuring a bit of inflation, this could be even higher. But I expect something around there.

:yess:

As for BBTS, sometimes they are too high to start out, but sometimes they are too low (they were with Spidey and DX Indy, and jacked both prices up after Sideshow listings went up).

They'll come down a bit.

I think Black Widow (or maybe it was Jill Valentine?) was originally $200 there.

Agreed. I didn't say it should be $135, I'm just saying you can easily compare these figures to each other and the price for Thor should be around that $135. $150 something is fair and that keeps me interested in the figure.

Educated guess based on observation. I'm sure that Thor shares the same body as the 4 aforementioned figures because: the neck is the same, none of the pics show the elbows bent further than 90 degrees, in some of the photos you can see the distinct shape of the arms.

Most importantly, the specs read 'muscular body', which eliminates the possibility of a TT Advanced or TT hybrid. The overall size and bulk of the figure matches that of a figure using the Wolvie body and finally I'm 100% sure HT didn't develop a new muscle body for this figure because they want to maximize profits by re-using a body that is mostly hidden under full-body clothing.
Ok cool. I guess I missed the muscular body part when I was reading the specs.

Like stated numerous times, figures like Wolverine sold for that high. And since this figure is using a similar/same body, we cannot expect them to sell it for what we want. I mean, if it was just a regular Narrow TT, sure... but it's not.

$170 is a pretty standard rate for Hot Toys at this point. It would probably be a good move to start expecting (at least) that. I figure the sub $140 far will be relegated to females, really basic figures on traditional True Type bodies, and figures from cheap-o licenses like Platoon.

IXI Nick IXI
01-28-2011, 07:22 PM
I see where you're coming from saying that less popular titles like Platoon will be cheaper, but more expensive titles like Marvel stuff will also sell significantly more to make up for the more expensive license...

I think its more like they know which characters tend to be more popular so they up the price.

There is no way a regular character with clothing should cost as much as or very close to say Iron Man MkIV with all the engineering involved in the design.

At the very least they should have created a new, buffer muscle body at this price rather than reusing the same body again.

Comparing Thor's price to Wolverine's price isnt fair since they designed a new body for Wolverine.

Just my two cents :) I could be completely wrong...

Regardless, I'll most likely pick this character up :D

IXI Nick IXI
01-28-2011, 07:41 PM
I know what you're saying about Spidey...using the logic I posted before he should be more expensive but isnt.

My only guess as to why Spidey is so much lower is because he's coming out way after the movie whereas the others tend to be more closely released to the movies when all the hype is at its peak.

But like I said before, I could be completely wrong about all of this :D

They may not have charged tax yet but they legally have to charge tax if they are in the same state as you. Maybe once the pre-order is fulfilled it will be added on

That is so weird. When I bought my T-800, CSC charged me the same amount that I was quoted from AE to ship. Even with the sales tax, it ended up being almost the exact same price so I went with CSC to save on shipping time. So far I've had really good customer service from CSC. I'll see how AE handles my Mark IV issue, and decide which company I like better.

How long ago did your friend date him? The reason why he looks like he does in the later part of Law and Order is because he was supposed to be a tortured soul. Add getting older and putting on weight will make you look a little worse for wear as well. He also had some personal life problems before coming back to L & O. He was stretching himself too thin for one thing. He was married during this entire period too. I've never seen a fat, raging cokehead before.

I completely understand the NRDs from Sideshow's perspective, and am only ordering Sideshow statues directly from them now for customer service issues that you refer to.

But I'm a cautious person, who understands that unforeseen situations pop up. So if I had it my way, I would never owe money for a pre-order that I wasn't definitely going to buy (and really, I don't know if that is the case until something actually comes in-stock).

Hot Toys needs to add more bulk to their standard True Types and label them as such, like what Medicom does with their "Massive" RAH. Muscle bodies for HT usually means reduced articulation. Introducing a beefy True Type would be great. They wouldn't even need to build it from the ground up, just mold new torso and arms and re-use the snap-on thighs from TTA.

I'm tired of them using the Wolvie body for characters that need something else.

Right you can't plan to have a million dollars but you plan best you can thats my point. Besides really at most its a 10% NRD most places so if you can't afford that probably shouldn't be collecting this anyways.

karamazov80
01-30-2011, 04:22 PM
Affordability at the moment has nothing to do with it. And 10% of a 1/2 scale Iron Man is a big chunk of change for most folks, whether or not it breaks the bank.

Seems like a silly kind of argument anyway. I just stated my reasoning on the issue. I would prefer not to put a deposit down on something if I can help it. Risk aversion is a personal disposition that we approach in different ways. If you're willing to take what I figure to be needless risks, power to you.

The Josh
01-30-2011, 04:32 PM
Of course the bigger figures the 10% is a nice chunk. Though, if you're buying that you can probably afford it either way.

There's no argument. :dunno I was just stating mine. Nothing more nothing less on my end. I would prefer not to as well but I don't mind it if I have to either. Honestly, I could care less what you consider needless.
