Hot Toys has announced a new series of collectible figures called the Artist Mix Collection. They will be collaborating with different artists and designers from various spectrums to re-imagine movie characters in a special art form with unique style.
To kick-off their new Artist Mix Collection, Hot Toys is teaming with famous Japanese toy artist Touma and introducing a number of unique figures based on one of the biggest movies of 2015 – Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.
The first series of their Artist Mix Collection will include Iron Man Mark XLIII, Captain America, Hulkbuster, Ultron Prime, and two versions of the Ultron Sentry! Perfectly combining the designs of each character from the movie, with Touma’s distinctive art style, these figures are sure to make an impression sitting on your shelf or desk. Each figure has a bobble-head and stands approximately 14cm tall (Hulkbuster stands approximately 20cm tall).
If you’re interested in getting your hands on these unique figures, head over to Sideshow Collectibles where you can pre-order them. The expected shipping date is sometime between August and October, 2015. They’re priced at US$39.99 each, for the smaller figures and US$127.99 for the larger Hulkbuster. You can also pickup the Iron Man Mark XLIII Battle Damaged Version along with the Hulkbuster, in a special collectible set for US$149.99.
Touma is a Japanese toys character designer. He started his career at a video game company 10 years ago. In 2001, he established his own workshop and started to become a figurine artist. He had his solo exhibitions and autograph sessions not only in Japan, but also in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and America. He collaborated with many major brands such as MONSTER HUNTER, STAR WARS, TRANSFORMERS, AVP, GODZILLA, POWER RANGERS, and more.
Recently, Touma and his 3D animation partner Shiroma collaborated with Hot Toys for the first time to ignite the Artist Mix Collection series to further expand the diversity of mini figures collection. The series is based on the 2015 Marvel Studios blockbuster, Avengers: Age of Ultron, which perfectly blends the iconic characters with Touma’s unique design style.
