Though most well known for creating life-like premium action figures, Hot Toys has begun to spread their wings into other avenues with their Artist Mix Figures, the first batch of which was Avengers: Age of Ultron-themed. Now they’re back with another series, this time focusing on Marvel’s Ant-Man, which are once against designed by Japanese toy artist Touma.
Ant-Man and Yellow Jacket figures are set to be produced, along with a deluxe set of 3 which will feature the two aforementioned characters plus a special Black Out Version of Ant-Man that is only available in this set. Each Artist Mix Figure has bobble-head function and stands approximately 13cm tall. You can check out the official images of them in the gallery below.
Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd (This is 40, They Came Together), Evangeline Lilly (“LOST,” The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies), Corey Stoll (This is Where I Leave You, Non-Stop) and Michael Douglas (The Game, And So It Goes) and brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time. Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang (Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
