Hot Toys Unleashes Symbiotic Madness With Movie Venom Figure

After some initial hesitancy by toy companies to commit to the Venom movie, it looks like everyone’s finally onboard. Following the recent Marvel Legends release of a movie Venom figure, Hot Toys just came up with their own. And while the base figure hews close to the film’s design, the company got just a tad more creative than usual with some of the bonus accessories and extras.

In addition to interchangeable head sculpts and a switch-out tongue, this Venom has powers he never showed onscreen. Extra tentacle heads plug into his back — two included, plus an extra one in a “Special Edition” version. He also includes Riot’s symbiotic weapons: a scythe and spear hand, plus a symbiote sword. (This suggests a Riot figure is unlikely, if they’re giving his gimmicks away.)

Unfortunately, as with Marvel Legends, Tom Hardy doesn’t seem to have signed off on his likeness. Toys with Eddie Brock’s face might have to wait for the second movie. On the other hand, the figure does have “a body painted with black polarized paint that gives a natural shiny glow from different viewing angles.”

Hot Toys’ Movie Venom figure arrives more than a year from now, around January 2022. That may help give collectors time to scrape up the $405 he’s going to cost. Meanwhile, they can feast their eyes on his details in the gallery below.
