Preview Hot Toys "The Avengers" 1/6 scale Nick Fury Limited Edition 12-inch Collectible Figurine

Hot Toys is proud to present the first limited edition collectible figurine from the upcoming superhero movie "The Avengers" produced by Marvel Studio – 1/6 scale Nick Fury, the director of S.H.I.E.L.D. The movie-accurate 12-inch collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury in the movie, highlighting the newly developed head sculpt, highly detailed costume, weapons and accessories.

The first Avengers movie 12-inch figure to be released by Hot Toys isn't going to be any of the superheroes but Nick Fury instead. After all, it is Nick Fury and the international agency S.H.I.E.L.D. (The acronym originally stood for Supreme Headquarters, International Espionage, Law-Enforcement Division. It was changed in 1991 to Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate. Within the various films set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the acronym stands for Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division) who brings together the team of super humans to form The Avengers to help save the Earth from Loki & his various membered army.

Nick Fury appears in several Marvel comic series set in alternate universes, as well as multiple animated films, television shows, and video games based on the comics. The character is portrayed by David Hasselhoff in the 1998 television movie Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and by Samuel L. Jackson in the 2008 film Iron Man, its 2010 sequel Iron Man 2, the 2011 films Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, and the upcoming film The Avengers. The Ultimate Marvel version of the character was based on Jackson's appearance and screen persona, well before he was cast in the role.

hi anon, Tony Stark wears the new Mark VII armor for Avengers and Cap has a new costume too. Even Black Widow is spotting shorter hair. No doubt Hot Toys will re-release all these again ;p So that means you have to collect ALL of them to complete the collection!
