You knew this would happen. After buying all those great Hot Toys this summer of Cap, Thor, and Odin, you knew Hot Toys wouldn't let the biggest movie of 2012 (sorry Batman!) go without hitting our pockets for some scratch. These new tie-in figures were officially announced today, with the Samuel L. Jackson's figure Nick Fury first up. Click on the jump to see more!
From the pictures, it looks like Hot Toys is giving us a very realistic figure in Fury. As I own several of HT's Marvel line, I can speak from personal experience about the quality of these pieces - they are worth every dime. Most of these sets usually come with many accessories: in this case, looks like they threw in a briefcase, gun, and rocket launcher. Wait, a ROCKET LAUNCHER?! YIPPEEE!!! Gotta get me one now!
Here's the offical message from Hot Toys via their Facebook page:
"Following the great response of the announcement of Nick Fury from The Avengers, one of our largest campaigns this year, we believe that our fans just can’t wait to have a glimpse of the other members of the team!
Glad to let our fans know that all characters are being developed in good progress now! Fans will be expecting the news of the collectibles of the characters from time to time before movie launches! The Avengers were born! Fans, please stay tuned tight!"
For those of you who think Hot Toys' high prices aren't worth it, check out these very realistic images of Jackson in all his Fury-ness!
