Sooo... I Bought This



Or, pre-ordered it anyway. It won't be ready until June. That's OK. I can wait. I mean, I've lasted this long since the end of Game of Thrones season two without murdering that many hobos, so I can wait for Hot Toys to put this thing together.

Enough has been said elsewhere about the beautiful nature of Hot Toy's sixth scale figures. They look better then the humans they represent. The actors are the ones breaking the uncanny valley with these figures. But I said to myself, I said "I won't buy any of them until I can have an Agent Coulson figure." Because this was before Coulson was going to be a thing, and I thought I had just saved myself some money. Turns out, not so much, though at $174 US, it's one of their cheaper figures from the Avengers line.

Still, I think the only other one I'd want would be the Loki (which is gorgeous). Then pose the two together to act out that scene. Then have Coulson mock Loki, cause he's coming back with a regular TV gig, while Loki gets stuck in Thor sequels, during which he'll probably die. Whose the ubiquitous franchise presence now, bitch! Of course, if I got Loki, I'd probably need Black Widow, so I could recreate the "mewling quim" scene. Best scene in the movie, that. Then a Bruce Banner would be helpful, could create a little "sickness riddled India" playset. I'd need a Tony though, with a little cattleprod...

Excuse me, I need to raise the credit limit on a couple of my credit cards. I'll see everyone tomorrow. Until then, there are some more pictures of the Coulson figure, plus the specs, after the jump.
