Back to the Future - 1/6 Marty McFly from Hot Toys


I could not believe my tender peepers when I laid them on the Hot Toys Facebook page, seeing a Marty McFly in 1/6th scale, stepping out of a DeLorean, remembering Hiroya Nakano's build I featured earlier on the blog, now available for pre-order at the coming Ani-Com event in Hong Kong ("Marty", not the DeLorean ;p) … and as well Pre-ordering at Ani-Com will include a 1/6th scale guitar as bonus accessory. I am actually quite scared to ask "How Much?" …

Hong Kong customers are to check out this lengthy set of instructions to lay your hands on this, and/or Star-Lord and Diecast Iron Man Mark 3. And as well you can check out more images I've since uploaded HERE on my FB.

Featuring Head Sculpted by Jong Hyuk, Park / Head Painted by JC. Hong / Head Art Directed by Kojun / Costume Designed by Hai Lim - the likeness of actor "Michael J. Fox" is palpable. Expect a release date circa 1st to 2nd quarter of 2015.


"“This is heavy doc.” Back to the Future is a pop culture icon and one of the best time-travel films of all time! It remains to be a highly popular movie even decades after the film is first released! Next year marks the 30th anniversary of this classic film and today Hot Toys is very excited to present the 1/6th scale Collectible Figure of the film’s main character – Marty McFly!

The movie-accurate Marty McFly Collectible Figure is specially crafted based on the image of Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly in the movie, featuring the newly developed head sculpt, highly detailed costume and a number of accessories. "

MMS Diecast - Iron Man: Mark III in 1/6 from Hot Toys



Looking at this reveal of Iron Man: 1/6th scale Mark III Collectible Figure from Hot Toys, I can only but imagine the (possible) uproar on the www about HT yet again releases a Iron Man 1/6 yaddayaddayadda … well, I've not owned a single piece and can hardly "chime in" with the few … aaaahhh but THIS iteration is in DIECAST METAL! But how many percentage of the body is actually in diecast?

Featuring the likeness of Robert Downey Jr with a Head Sculpted by Kojun / Head Painted & Head Art Directed by JC. Hong (not shown here at all actually lol), expect a release schedule circa Q2 – Q3, 2015.

Pre-orders begin at Ani-Com in Hong Kong will include a 1/6th scale arc reactor in display case as bonus accessory. (Also expect online auctions to be bursting with offers soon-ish ;p). Hong Kong customers are to check out this lengthy set of instructions to lay your hands on this, and/or Marty McFly and Star-Lord.

Meanwhile check out more images I've since uploaded HERE on my FB.
