For fans of Marvels wildly popular Guardians of the Galaxy, theres very little about the Hot Toys Star-Lord Sixth Scale Figure that wont be considered stellar. As the first of several exhaustively authentic pieces in Hot Toys sixth scale Guardians of the Galaxy Movie Masterpiece Series to ship in 2015, Star-Lord sets the bar not only for the rest of the inbound line-up (including , , and ), but for the entire universe of pop culture collectibles that will follow.
What makes the Hot Toys Star-Lord Sixth Scale Figure a collectible necessity? For starters, the figures movie accuracy is epitomized by the uncanny realism of the head sculpt and portrait. From the hair color, skin texture, subtle stubble, and expression, the likeness of actor Chris Pratt has been captured with jaw-dropping fidelity. In addition, the highly poseable 12-inch figure features 30 points of articulation, five interchangeable hands, as well as a battery-powered alternate helmeted head with illuminating red eyes that enable collectors to recreate a wide variety of scenes from the film.
Beyond the figure, Hot Toys has seemingly spared few details in recreating the costume of Peter Quills deftly heroic alter ego with meticulous accuracy. The undershirt, trousers, and boots have been painstakingly crafted, as has the distinctive red overcoat. The latter is worthy of special mention as it features detailed contours, a working zipper, and the appearance of distressed leather with realistic weathering and damage.
A full complement of authentic weapons and accessories makes for another impressive aspect of the Hot Toys Star-Lord Sixth Scale Figure that Marvel collectors will find worthy of praise. In addition to a duo of pistols, the cosmic hero comes with his key essentials including a plasma orb, a leather-like sling pack, a portable audio cassette player with headphones, and a figure stand. A special edition Star-Lord figure sold exclusively through Sideshow Collectibles adds a pair of handcuffs and the Infinity Stone orb to the mix.
The Hot Toys Star-Lord Sixth Scale Figure released in March 2015 at the manufacturers suggested retail price of $234.99 USD.
