Are These New Images From ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ Or Toys?

Somebody's definitely putting the "hot" in "Hot Toys."

Clearly Hot Toys, the Hong Kong-based production company famous for its sixth scale models of your favorite superheroes, are using some kind of evil wizarding powers to shrink celebrities and sell them as collectible figures. I'd say we need to assemble the Avengers to take care of this problem, but we'd like to assemble our own collection first.

Of course, the level of gorgeous detail that all of these exceptional "Age of Ultron" figures feature also mean that most of them cost upwards of $200 (the Hulkbuster armor in particular retails for $845, which is more than the price of two brand new Apple iPads). But at least looking at these figures is completely free -- and also pretty mind-bending at that. You mean it's NOT actually Jeremy Renner I'm seeing right now? He's only twelve inches tall? WHAT.

See for yourself, but don't say we didn't warn you:

  • Hot Toys

    Oof, that chest hair.

  • The newest addition to the Hot Toys "Age of Ultron" line, complete with adorably doofy coat.

  • The Mark XLIII never looked so good.

  • Hot Toys

    This might even be better than the toy they made of ScarJo for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." I think it's the hair.

  • Hot Toys

    They've really gotten his Dorito-shaped body proportions down.

  • We know this guy is mostly CGI in the movie, but dang it if this doesn't make him look so lifelike.

  • sHot Toys

    Last but not least, this giant armor comes with a little Iron Man inside. Also, I'd like to remind you that THIS IS A TOY.

Let's hope that Hot Toys keeps building up the team with Thor, Scarlet Witch, and Quicksilver! Just imagine what that mane of black and white hair would look like on a tiny 1/6 scale Aaron Taylor Johnson.
