Part of the appeal of Hot Toy's figures is that they pack such an incredible amount of detail into a tiny, 30cm-ish frame. But what happens when that crazy attention to detail is put on something a little more life sized? If you're in Asia over the next few months, you could find out.
The exhibition is solely dedicated to Hot Toy's line of Age of Ultron figures, letting you see the wonderful little things on display without having to weep at the prospect of emptying your bank account to get all of them. But part of the appeal is the fact that Hot Toys will also display huge, life-sized versions of the figures as well, bringing the likes of Cap, the Hulk, and as you can see above, the Hulkbuster, to life on a larger scale than they usually would. Which is awesome. Here's a list of the tour dates:
- Mid-Valley Megamall, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (April 8 – 19)
- Shin Kong Mitsukoshi's Taipei Xinyi Place, Taipei, Taiwan (April 12 – May 31)
- Gandaria City Mall, Jakarta, Indonesia (April 14 – May 3)
- SM Megamall, Manila, Philippines (April 15 – Early May)
- Vivo City, Singapore (April 15 – May 3)
- Royal Paragon Hall @ Siam Paragon, Bangkok, Thailand (May 1 – 3)
- Roppongi Izumi Garden Gallery, Tokyo, Japan (July 4 – 20)
It won't just be ogling and pretty figures and lifesize versions of them though, you'll also of course, be able to buy said pretty figures. Including an exclusive version of Iron Man only available on the tour, based on the Mk. VII Armour from The Avengers:
But hey, you thought that Hulkbuster figure was expensive? Imagine what it would cost if it was like, ten feet tall. As crazy and awesome as it would be, I'm not sure I could see Hot Toys getting into the life-sized replica business. Or at least my wallet hopes they don't.
