Hot Toys be giving you Rocket and Groot.
I just did a super embarrassing arm flail, silently, at my desk.
Mad geniuses at Hot Toys couldn’t quite get away with selling a 1/6 Bat, so they went for 1/12. Comes with 6” Bruce and Selina so they can go on their first date on your shelf forever.
And the reveal. Uh… add to cart.

Speaking of Black Widow, glkjasdgkljasdjjjjlllllll.
Once a year I look at my favourite toys from the preceding year. When I stopped buying a bunch of toys annually, and kept it to a relative handful (no wait: an actual handful!), this started getting less of a “top ___ list” and more of a “here’s what I did” list. Still, I’ve ranked them in order of awesomeness, because toys are awesome. There’s even a bit of psychological justification below, for those of you shaking your heads and wondering what my mother did wrong.
#1: Hot Toys MMS 188 The Dark Knight Rises Selina Kyle
It’s kind of a pick-‘ems in the top slots here but I think Catwoman edges out Loki by a nose. (She has a lovely one.) This must be the only instance of rooted hair in my whole collection, which is (admittedly) a bit funky and will probably only become funkier over time. But Selina is blessed by the presence of her fancy eyewear and goggles, which do a good job of keeping those runaway locks clamped down; and the Anne Hathaway sculpt is fucking phenomenal. The only real problem is the price point, which is becoming Hot Toys’ major problem anyway. I think I paid $240 here? For a figure with a single accessory (Bat-pod not included)? That’s way on the high side. For comparison, the identically-equipped Black Widow from Iron Man 2 ran $140, just three years ago.Read more
