Hot Toys, the Hong Kong-based high-end collectible company, is teaming up with pop artist Touma to release a series of figures based on the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron film. Dubbed Artist Mix Collection, the 14cm-tall figures combine the cool designs of the Avengers with Touma's super-deformed art style, and the result is cute and wallet-bustingly collectible.
The first series includes figures of Ultron with Sentries A and B, Iron Man Mk. 43, and Captain America in his Age of Ultron gear. I've never heard of Touma, but his style is right up my alley. Ultron is freaking cute for a murderous robot, and Cap's stoic expression is adorable in its cartoony-ness!
But the biggest sell (literally) of the series is that Hulkbuster, all hot-rod red and gold and appropriately massive. At almost 8 inches tall, it will tower over his series mates, and rightly so!
Hot Toys is poised to pump out a goodly amount of Age of Ultron merchandise leading up to the movie's premiere, and their Artist Mix Collection is a good way to get in on the action without breaking the bank on their hyper-realistic figures. No release date as of yet, but you can check out more pics over at the Hot Toys fanpage.
