Hot Toys Thanos Sixth Scale Figure: Hands On with the Mad TitanJune 5, 2016
We’ve gotten our hands on the Hot Toys Thanos Sixth Scale Figure and we’re happy to report that it’s another worthy addition to the company’s Movie Masterpiece Series of collectibles. Alongside (and towering above) other pieces in Hot Toys’ Guardians of the Galaxy line-up that we’ve reviewed (including , , and ), the gigantic armor-clad Titan is a jaw dropping collectible of utterly cosmic proportions that makes for a worthy addition to the collection of any fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
So, what makes the Hot Toys Thanos Sixth Scale Figure so utterly craveable? For starters, it’s an exhaustively crafted depiction of the imposing, Infinity Gem-seeking villain. The figure boasts a robust and weighty build that captures Thanos’ hefty physique with impressive fidelity. The battle-worn metallic gold, purple, and grey armor contributes to the figure’s immensity while adding intricate and extraordinary detail. The imposing collectible stands nearly 15 inches tall and features 22 points of articulations throughout the neck, torso, arms, and legs, which enable a range of authentic posing options.
Another remarkable characteristic of Hot Toys’ Thanos Sixth Scale Figure is the screen-faithful skin texture and portrait that it bears. The hue, pallor, and lifelike contours coupled with sinister expression and glint of the eyes faithfully capture the look of the Eternal warlord in Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers films.
Clinching the must-have status for Hot Toys’ Thanos Sixth Scale Figure is its accessories. In addition to two interchangeable sets of hands and an alternate armor piece, the cosmic conqueror comes with a 10-piece throne and figure stand. Thanos’ chair features a battery-powered light-up function and pentagonal base with nameplate and the Guardians of the Galaxy movie logo. The translucent supports and glow of the 18 internal LEDs do a respectable job of making the faux-stone elements of the chair appear to hover in space and are a very welcome and well-executed inclusion. While the addition of a sixth scale Infinity Gauntlet accessory would have been nice, the Mad Titan poised atop his throne is an impressive sight and yet another reason why the Hot Hoys’ Sixth Scale Thanos is such an irresistible splurge.
The colossal Hot Toys Thanos Sixth Scale Figure began shipping in January of this year at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $414.99 USD.
